DesignVigilante and I did a swap! A needle case in exchange for a crochet hat.  Grin Here is the amazing hat she made for me. Sorry in advance for the crappy pics (I had to use my cell phone) and my crappy face. lol

I wish you could tell how thick it is! It's pretty amazing.

And an action shot.

Thank you so much Design. I love my hat!!! I would love to personal swap with you again sometime.  Grin

Mail jail! Haha that cracks me up!

Here are the pictures of what the amazing Spookygrrrly sent me... Finally!!
And by finally I mean finally I can upload the pictures not that the envelope took forever. lol  Roll Eyes Also, no postage needed!
I apologize for the quality of the pictures.  Undecided

First is my favorite!! Beautiful floral paper. I can't wait to use this! I have some inchies and atcs in mind right now.  Grin

Next are some cute Halloween stickers and state stamps! I love how the stamps have facts about the state on the back! The state bird, flower, tree, capital, and statehood. How stinkin cute.

And we have some awesome fabric that has skulls and knitting needles. It's folded in this picture btw. She did her stalking and found out I am trying to learn how to knit.  Grin It has a black background with white skulls and pink knitting needles.

And last but not least she sent me some heart confetti and small jewels (perfect for inchies!) Sparkly ribbon and some Japanese (I believe) charms. All of it was packaged in a cute little pouch.

Thank you so very much Spookygrrrly. I love everything that you sent! Another great 1st time swapper right here!! I can't wait to use all of the great things that you both sent me. Thank you again! And thank you organizers. You did an amazing job of keeping such a huge swap moving smoothly!

Oh and I want that puppy!!  Grin

So the scanner idea didn't work. Something is apparently wrong with my printer. Maybe it doesn't like Windows 7. Idk. lol But I took some pictures with my cell phone and they didn't turn out too bad!

Here is what the wonderful Varifiresis sent me!!

A Twilight bookmark!!! I <3 Twilight.  Grin
I love the attention to detail in the bookmark. She colored all the red parts with what looks like a sparkly red gel pen. It really makes it pop.

Here's another of the bookmark. Sorry it's a bit blurry.
It's really sturdy too. The writing in the background is a page of the book.  Grin

Next is the cutest little patch! I can't wait to use it.

Some tropical rub on transfers!

And my second favorite is the iron on! It's a very pretty blue color with cute little birds on it. It's really soft too!

Thank you so much Varifiresis! I love everything. Great 1st time swapper right here!!!  Grin Grin

And then I have a question. Is anyone else having issues with Craftster today? Everytime I type the reply box jumps around. It's like scrolling all by it's self so I can't see what I'm typing. It's driving me up the wall!

Pinkleo also sent me some Twilight Sweetarts...  Grin

Gerbera Daisies Theme:
Beautiful note cards. You can never have too many note cards. These are perfect.

Gerbera Daisy Pens. Not only did she make the pens but Pinkleo also sent the vase and the stones. She didn't leave anything out! What an amazing partner.

A beautiful necklace. This might be my new favorite piece of jewelry... Along with a few other things she sent me.  Grin Grin It's so bright and happy.

Stars Theme:

Crazy glass bead charm bracelet! It's so chunky and perfect. Another favorite!  Cheesy

Lots and lots more earrings!!
Red! Green Square! Green!

And I think this has to be my favorite pair of earrings ever. My big polka dot earrings.

And even thou Pinkleo swapped out my Dandelion theme for Twilight (she knows I'm a huge fan) she was sweet enough to include something dandelion related. A quilled dandelion picture!!

Thank you so much Pinkleo for everything.

You are an amazing partner! You did such an amazing job on everything I am in awe. I really hope that we get to be partners again soon! Thanks again.  Kiss Grin

Also, sorry again about my packages getting returned. Turns out that online thing isn't as easy as I thought it was going to be.  Cry They will be on there way tomorrow morning!!

Ooh. She also made me a cute fabric covered notebook! It's covered with polka dot fabric and say Jots on the front.  Grin Cheesy I've already been using it so it's upstairs in my bumble bee tote.  Smiley I'll be sure to edit this and include a picture tomorrow!

I apologize to my partners.  Cry I am going to post some teasers thou! Just so you know I DO have them finished and ready to be sent out. Thank you everyone for your patience.

8  "Yay I can follow directions" purse. in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by sammiejayr on: February 08, 2009 11:22:00 PM
Usually when I make something I work it out as I go. This time I followed (most of) the directions and I'm happy I did. I <3 my crazy flower purse.  Grin I got the directions for the purse from Bend The Rules Sewing by Amy Karol. The wallet was really easy, I worked it out. Smiley What do you think?

Close up of the seam.

Matching wallet.
