1  Re: Mug Rug Swap Rd 6 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by mambosushi on: October 26, 2014 06:49:22 AM
Then, on Friday, I received a package from Smileyyogini:
Smileyyogini and I were partnered up last year, so I already knew she was going to be fun.  
She made me a Day of the Dead mugrug with jewel tone patchwork, lace, and a hand embroidered calavera skull on the front.  Beautiful rose print pocket and more lace on the back.  She had me at the mugrug...and then I dug further into the package:
It's sideways, but it's a crocheted skulls with black roses and bows wallhanging.  I've never seen anything like it before.  I know right where I'm putting this.  I almost walked away from the package to hang it up, but then found:  
All these other fantastic goodies!  A couple of calaveras printed on muslin so I can make my own embroidered beauties.  And some glow in the dark Halloween stickers.  You spoiled me rotten, Smileyyogini.  Thank you, thank you.   Cheesy

First, I got my mugrug from CraftyMamaBee on Thursday:
A robot.  So clever!  And she included a sweet card (not pictured) but she said she got to try something new, which is exactly why I love Craftster.  Here's the back:

Thank you so much, CraftyMamaBee.  This made me smile.

So,  my package from goatgoddess arrived at home, while I was a work today. 

Without hesitation, my husband hung it in my kitchen. 

I love it...It's like a snarky Donna Reed, which to me, is the epitome of all 50's house wives.  Thank you.

Hi, I'd like to take this time to say, Smileyyogini's great.  Look...

It's like she knew me.  Cute apron, fully lined.  Included a hand crocheted trivet that matches. 

Thank you for such cute stuff, Smileyyogini.  And thank you, Donniesgirl for thinking of such a fun swap.  I'd forgotten how addictive craft swapping is.

I got my package from smittenheart.  Aaaaand here it is...

This is a picture of everything. 

Scented handmade soaps (ooh la la) pineapple/cilantro and clover/tea.

A necklace with a clear resin charm shaped like a bottle with red and pink hearts floating in them...so cute.

A tea towel with a cocktail embroidered on it.  BTW, hand embroidered.

Bartender's Pocket Guide!  Haha!  Featuring such classics as..."Lobotomy", "Alligator", "Ninja" and much, much more!

A knit bar towel with a martini pearled (knitted?) in it.  Fantastic variegated color.  Smittenheart, what kind of yarn is this?

A great purse made from a sweater.  Wow!

The buttons are my favorite. 

Everything's great and fun and serious jealousy up in my house.  Thank you, smittenheart.

Here's what I made for the swap

Sorry.  It's a horrible, alcohol induced photo.  Haha.  But I made a fully insulated bottle bag with a recipe on it for PURPLE MARGARITAS (my partner likes purple).  I found this great ribbon with cocktails on it and made a set of notecards with them that say "CHEERS".  I included a set of four shot glasses.  For entertaining, a set of cocktail charms with different color salted margarita glasses as the charms.  Aand, my favorite...here's a close up:

A wristlet.  My latest obsession.  I'm cuckoo for zippers.  Mandy was graced (inflicted?) with one from me in a previous swap.  This one's out of killer purples, fully lined, with a purple zipper and a rhinestone martini glass.

I got my package from Mandys08 on Friday.  This was a fun swap.  Mandy and I had a few things in common.  My favorite being that our favorite seasons were 1 and 2.  So, while I was crafting, I watched them on DVD religiously.  Here's a picture of everything
A fabulous scarf (so soft) Lorelai always wore great scarves
A great framed picture of Lorelai and Rory with my favorite line from 'The Long Morrow' episode
Glossies of Lorelai, Rory, and hunky Luke
Another frame with cork board in it and extra chalk so I can write on the frame.  Mandy put GO YALE and my username on it
A travel mug with 'Coffee,coffee,coffee' on it and 'Luke's Diner' Logo.  I use it every day.
But my favorites:  A bag with 'Miss Patty's School of Ballet' embroidered on itI so appreciate this bag as it was a find in a thrift store that she so skillfully embroidered in my favorite colors.  Even gave the ballerina brown hair...like me!!!
Aaand...a picture of Miss Patty with a HILARIOUS line from "Will You Be My Lorelai Gilmore?".  I love Miss Patty.  The picture's on my fridge. 
Thank you Mandy.

Here's Part II of Klum78's bag-o-fab.  Rainbows.  I love rainbows.  This is the happy stuff

Here's all of them

Here are my big, big favorites

Wow, look at those greens!!!!  And that orange peeking out, pretty.

Now, look at Simplysandy's and Klum78's together.

Uh huh.  I got some plans.  Thanks again, Klum78.  Fun stuff.

Here's half of what I received from Klum78 the other day.  This is a fun little pack.  I was curious when you announced brown,red,yellow,blue was your theme, but I think I see where you were going. 

Here's most of it

And here are my super favorites

The brown on the bottom...SOO CUTE.  And I LOVE the yellow on the top.  What I thought was the best about this pack (beside the color combination) was that a lot of the prints had the same type of flowers.

I love my stuff, Klum78.  Thank you.  And I'll post pictures of the rainbow pack when I take a break from playing with it.  I think you and Simplysandy were channelling eachother when you each made your packs.  They were definitely meant to be in the same fabulous thing I decide to make.
