I received yesterday and I was so excited and grateful!  My partner crafted for three holidays and my birthday!!!  And was so generous that I am grateful!  Take a look at these pics:
Here is everything in one pic.... look at the loveliness

And here is Strawberry Day and Clay week.... I love strawberries and I will be rearranging my kitchen so that it complements these colors this weekend!  There is a bag, two towels and three hotpads/ovenmitts... clay week are these cute little bowls

Here is Say Something Nice Day... She gave me something not just for the day but for the year!  A jar of positive thoughts! I NEED THIS!!!! and it is on my desk now so I can use it when I need it!  And look at her beautiful cards!  SO IMPRESSIVE!

And for my birthday she gave me a piece of cake.... It is so well made and so CUTE...
But take a look inside..... great candy  AND a little something extra just for me!  SO GENEROUS!

I received a wonderful package over the weekend and I am so excited to share it! 

Here are all of the great small things that I got.... look at this keychain!  I think I need to start polymer clay!  I LOVE HER WORK.... And not only the Keychain but the bee "bug" pin Chuck wore in the bee episode!  WOW!  And such a pretty felt needlebook!  PERFECT.... but wait... that's not all!

HAND PAINTED AND PERFECT!  I can not do this and I am amazed and so very excited that this was made for ME!  I have pillows in them now and they are finding a space on my sofa.... I took off the ugly pillows off a few years ago and throw pillows are all I have on it and now these are front and center!

I received my beautiful package from SouthernStitcher today and I am so excited about everything...... So I will start with pics......

First off here is my package when I opened it... I removed some pretty paper which you will see in next pic but the glow worm was so cure looking up at me that I had to take a pic!

Here are the packages before I opened each of them

Isn't it all very pretty
Please notice the decopaged recipe box at the top right of the pic!  LOVE IT.. Great yellow color and so well done!

And here is everything unwrapped....

Oh I was so excited about everything!  The large fleur de lis stamp made me giggle cause it is so awesomely big!
Please note the embroidered owl in the middle is an awesome magnet!
There is a wonderful pin cushion mason jar with buttons that I was excited about because I had failed on making my own!
There is a hand made journal with the pretty sunflowers on the left.... SO CUTE and perfect... it was her first time!
Do you see my glow worm peaking out!  It is her song craft which is so sweet!
There were pralines and a small pecan pie which I am going to go eat right now Smiley Love it all and have already purchased the fabric for project box 3 and box 2 is in the works soon!

OK well both of my partners have had their packages for over a week and I wanted to share what I sent.  Both packages actually stretched my skills but I was VERY happy with how they came out!
This is the package I sent to wonderwoman1976...... Stuffies

a  baxter bunny and a matryoshka doll.

I also sent fat quarters, fabric cut for each example made.  I also sent patterns printed for those two and three other stuffies

For icebyrd67 I made a needle felting kit.  Unfortunately I did not take pics of the full kit... but I sent 6 colored wools, some polyfill to use as a base for the feltings, two single needles and one multiple needle tool and two sizes of foam to use as a base.  Here are the examples I made.  I took pics during my making of the mushroom and put them in a hand bound book.

Thanks for looking!
