I received today from Bugaboo1!  I had a lot of very open ended themes and I love where she went with it!  Here goes:

Full mermaid...

Back view...

The cute little sewn fin!

She has on a little bikini top!

She shares a spot of honor with my Maya Angelou dottee from another swap!

Thank you so much, Bugaboo1!  I love it!  Thank you The Raging Sloth for organizing this swap!

I received a very orange and turquoise-y package this afternoon from AMFkinney!  Be prepared to see a lot of loveliness!

I just HAD to take a photo of the wrapped goodies because the paper was so cheerful!  (And I saved all of it!)

A VERY soft turquoise infinity scarf that fits me perfectly!

A really cool tag!  I've never seen anything like it!

Washii tape and embroidery floss!!!!  The funny thing is, I bought myself the SAME EXACT tape!  Cheesy No worries, b/c I use it up quick!  I love slow cloth/boro stitching/TM patches, so the floss will come in very handy!

Adorable fat quarter of fabric with one of my favorite themes and colors!

Who can't use a planner?  Cheesy

Paint always comes in handy too!

LOOK AT THESE BUTTONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked ICE CREAMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!!!!  Grin

Jaw dropping awesomeness!!!!  I adore the colors, the stitch, the heft of the yarn, everything!!!!

A different nifty tag, this time inside the purse.  I love it!

And look at the clever closure on this bag!  She had me fooled!  Wink  I tried to unbutton it first.  Wink

Even the card was chosen well!  I'm going to save it!

THANK YOU SO MUCH AMFKinney!  You hit all my likes right on the head!  I love it all!

I received from StudioANF about five minutes ago, literally, and LOOK AT ALL THIS:

This is my new project bag in "bee colors" as she stated!  I love it!  I love the style too!

So many fun extras:  two rolls of washi tape, stickers of all kinds, and mustache paperclips! 

I just sighed with pleasure when I saw these!  The rainbow colored skeins I always look at in Michael's Craft store but can never justify the cost.  Now I don't have to!  And I've been wanting to try out the new Pantone yarns, so this is perfect and the colors are too!

Thank you so much, StudioANF, for a wonderful package and to Mistress Jennie for organizing!

P.S.  I'm sorry I have to send late, but I think you'll get a giggle when you get your swap package from me.  And that's all I'm going to say!  Grin

I received from FiberAlchemist on Saturday, and boy did she deliver!  Check this out:

I asked for a "vessel" instead of a mug, and I asked if she could find something that could hold tea for my husband.  LOOK AT THAT BOX!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  It's perfect!  And it was FILLED TO THE BRIM with 'Stash' brand teas; all different flavors!  There's only two pictured because my son was here this weekend and I shared some with him and his partner.  I needed a new cup cozy, I lost the one I had received in another swap.  And look at the mug rug!  So neatly stitched!  Even my DD was impressed!  Lastly, FiberAlchemist really paid attention to the details of my questionnaire and gave me low calorie hot cocoa-just like I asked!

Thank you so much for a wonderful swap package, FiberAlchemist, and thank you for organizing, WhistleFish!

I received from Kittykill last week but life has gotten in the way of posting photos.  However, better late than never!  Here goes:

I am wondering, although I would definitely find a use for it no matter what  Cheesy, what exactly is the thinner cotton yarn used for?

Thank you, Kittykill!

I received a VERY FAT mailing envelope from BigBangMomma today!  Here's the goodies:

This is everything wrapped.

This was my birthday surprise!!!!!!!! (A claim.) BigBangMomma and I follow each other on Instagram, and I guess she figured out that I've been wanting one of her famous zip pouches that you can put in a three ring binder!  Shocked Cheesy Wink  It's very sturdy, very well made!

Here's one claim:  a patchwork (my fav!) zippered pouch with a TON of scrap fabric inside!  I WANT TO MAKE ALL THE SLOW CLOTH/BORO PATCHES NOOOOOOWWWWW!!!!!!!  Grin

This is the inside of the pouch-I think I may just have taken an "artsy fartsy" photo without even trying!  Wink

Here's the photo of my favorite fabric she gave me:  batik, I cutout of what I think is Dr. Who (a small piece of fabric with just a head made it one of my favs), and the funniest piece of fabric I have ever seen!!!!!  Whatever I make with this is going to have to be *extra* special!  Cheesy

I think this was a third claim.  12" squares to send to make blankets for the people who live on the Pine Ridge Reservation!  She sent me the extra yarn from them.  Blank gelli-ed  Cheesy ATCs!  AND A CARVED STAMP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked

The front of the card she sent...isn't it cute?  It was made by kbrison, she said.

And the inside of the card.

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I start planning for next Xmas right after This Xmas. Ive even starting writing down ideas I have for next years gifts. It helps a lot.

I want to apologize to geekgirl for not being able to post photos or comment.  As she knows, it has been utter chaos in my house for about two-three weeks now and I wasn't able to do anything.

Everything she sent me I absolutely adored, and I want to post a photo of a purse I made for my Etsy shop that one of the buttons she made fit with it perfectly (She said she created it during a visit with Craftster's own MissingWillow!  Shocked)

Isn't it perfect???!!!  I'm going to use some of the other ones with the project I'm making for the Craftster Meetup in April.  Wink  Thanks again for being understanding, geekgirl!

As Sheldon Cooper would say:  "That's MY spot!"  Grin

Because the items BigBangMomma sent are for my DH, DS, and DDs to be opened on Xmas day, I can't post daily photos of the gifts.  What I am going to do, is post a photo each day of what I can already, so you get an idea of it, and then on Xmas, I'll post what was in the packages.  Here goes:

This is what came in the mail, and it took all my strength to not take it all out till we had our tree up, so I could put them underneath!

Here's another photo, this one of what she sent me (well, the outside anyway!):

Tomorrow I'll post what's inside!   Grin

Unfortunately, chaos has hit our house HARD for the past two-three weeks, and I wasn't able to post any photos till now of what BigBangMomma had sent.  She has been so understanding and I am so greatful for that!  She and I are becoming great friends too, so that's another gift!  Cheesy

Here's the photos from what she sent us, most of them opened on Xmas, all modeled with the recipients.  Grin  Here goes:

BBM made fabulous ornaments for each of us!  Mine had a ladybug and a bumblebee on it, of course!  Wink

BBM sent my younger DD art supplies, which included several blank canvases.  As you can see, she has already put them to use and has another one drying on the table.  She was so excited to receive them!

This is a photo of the bearded dragon ornament she made for my older DD!

Don't make fun of me, but I had asked her to make something for our bearded dragons too!  She delivered!  She made blankets for each of them that matched the color they were.  In this photo you can see Eliot the orange dragon with her orange blanket, that says 'Eliot' on it.  She sent a personalized blanket for each of the three beardies.

This is a photo of the ornament she sent my son:

Please enjoy the goofy face my handsome son made while showing off the cute little tie pin that was sent for him:

There was bearded dragon artwork included for my younger DD, and she likes it so much, she told me twice!  She said she also showed it to her dragon, and the dragon licked it-dragon seal of approval, I guess!

This was a fabric covered notebook for my older DD.  Do you think she liked it? Grin

My older DD has a leopard gecko.  So BBM made her an AWESOME pillow cover and even included the pillow form!

Orgami (sp) paper was sent for my older DD, who has been interested in it for years.

Here's a photo of one of the pillowcases BBM sent:

I saw my older DD open this and both her sister and I went:  "OOOOOHHHHHHHH!!!!!"  Needless to say, I'm going to see if Michael's Crafts has a sale on them today!  Cheesy
My younger DD received a box filled to the brim with art supplies!  (We had also given her some, she was so pleased with all that she received!)

Here's a photo of my younger DD with her ornament.  She's into Broadway shows, so BBM made her a 'Lion King' themed one!

DH received an ornament of a rat eating a flower.  It sounds odd, but I'm making another post titled 'Craftster Love' and you can read the story behind the rat and the flower.

I feel as if I'm missing something, BigBangMomma.  If I am, please feel free to post it.  Thank you for being so understanding about my posting photos when I did.  All of the gifts you sent were so generous, and wrapped so beautifully!  I am so grateful you were my partner for this swap!  Thank you again!

Hi!  I received my swap package from kwality, but couldn't post it sooner b/c DH and the kids were home and the package was for DH's birthday.  Everyone is out of the house now, so here goes.  Prepare to be amazed!!!!

As you can see, the main focus of the package was the 'Happy Birthday' monster art.  DH LOVES kwality's monsters and absconds with anything I get from her in a swap with a monster on it.  Now, he'll have his own and leave mine alone!   Grin  I also received a set of orange monster 'thank you' cards, which are nifty too!  (They were tied with the orange ribbon.)  I received a kwality monster magnet which will be going to DH for Xmas, and a smaller kwality monster painted on wood, which I will be putting a string thru and attaching to my 'happy board' above my computer.  She also sent a small box of Halloween stickers, which I'm using on my girls' lunches!  Last, but certainly not least, she sent me two skeins of REALLY soft yarn to "make something manly" for DH!!!!!   Grin

Thank you for swapping with me, kwality, and all the thought and effort and generosity you put into this package!  Yours will be going out on either Wednesday or Thursday.
