Sorry for the delay, I just got a spiffy new phone with a much nicer camera, much better for swap pics! I received a T-shirt, scarf, 2 cat toys and bracelet from athenaknits?, pics below:

And my favorite gift, the Social Distortion scarf...I LOVE it!:

Thank you for everything! My boy cat is playing with the cricket toy right now trying to figure out why it's making noise, so cute!!

um, just *what* is your cat wearing? and how do you manage to keep her dressed? (wondering if my kitty would tolerate a similar outfit)...

i got the coolest collection of korean pop music this week from my partner SoonFamo-Artiste. here's a pic:

i've only listened to the CD once through (and i like to give things at least three listens) but i'm already enjoying the musical education. i'd have never picked this out myself which is why it's cool to have these kinds of swaps. i think my favorite songs so far are by a guy that goes by se7en? at least, i think that's what the tracklist said.

thanks a ton soonfamoartiste!!

i got the coolest package from rangerbeth yesterday! here's a shot of the cool stocking she sent (lined with bright pink fabric) along with some christmas-y decorations (they'll be adoring my car very soon) and THREE christmas music mixed CDs. i am so spoiled!

it was a little like christmas morning opening them up. she found some really cool music and i'm excited to listen to them. the mixes are titled ho-ho-ho-hum, egg-nog gives me the squirts and christmas rap which gives you an idea of the range of stuff she included.

beth, do you have an electronic file of the playlists? if not, i'll type 'em up. and thanks a million for the super package!!  Grin

whoa, i just got the last bit of my swap package from redheadedali in the mail yesterday and wow - she's amazing! Grin
she did a little detective work to find out how much i love the outlander series of books by diana gabaldon (seriously folks, go get a copy from your local library - it's got romance, action, history and science fiction all wrapped up in one engaging story) so she crafted the coolest doll of one of the main characters - jamie fraser. he is of course, a redhead scottsman so note his plaid and little braveheart-era braid.

cute isn't he? and here's another shot with my hand for scale:

thanks a bajillion redheadedali! you are so talented! i am very impressed with your skill and cleverness!
runs off to email pics to grandmother and aunt who also love the books

i've been so remis in posting the sweet stuff that redheadedali sent so here's the goods, finally!

what you see here folks is the little package note, my very own panta (yea! in green, to complement my hair, natch), a lovely zippered pouch, gorgeous earings and several red pride buttons! there's a pic of molly ringwald (the ultimate redhead 80s icon - she made being a redhead cool when i was in elementary/junior high) and redhead in several languages - spanish, french and gaelic.

i'm quite taken to my panta. not being a knitter i had to watch in lust while all the panta posting was/is going on in the knitting forums. but now, i can wear my own!!

here's a shot of the backside of the pouch which i totally love. isn't it true ladies?

anyway, i loved all the swap goodies so thank-you again redheadedali! Smiley

redheadedali aka alison is heading out of town so she asked me to post some pics of the stuff i sent her. here's a group shot:

i made her two t-shirts, redhead lip balm, a red-themed mixed tape CD, and a booklet of sherlock holmes and the redheaded league. i also threw in some redhead postcards, red candy, big red gum (of course), some chocolate carrots, a red marker, kim possible stickers (she's a redhead cartoon charcter on the disney channel), a yosemite sam pez dispenser (he's a redhead!) and cinnamon breath strips (spicy!)

here's a shot of the t-shirts. the blue one says "red hot redhead" in glitter letters and the white on has a redhead illustration on the front and a nice little ode to the wonders of redheads on the back.

these pics are huge so you can see everything.

**oh, and i've recieved package #1 from alison and will post pics very soon!

9  Re: I <3 Coffee/Tea Swap Round 2 Gallery!!! in The Swap Gallery by macaulkv on: April 05, 2006 02:06:52 AM
omigod, it's soo late but this post cannot wait for daylight because i am sooo overwhelmed with the package i got from avian flight! Grin she whipped out some amazing stuff! prepare for some serious swapping envy!

a shot of all the loot:

what you are drooling over ladies and gentlemen is an incredible bunch of inspired crafting. there's a handbound journal, crochet teacup and saucer (soo cute!), my own coffee cozy, a lovely (soft) handbag, gourmet chocolate-drizzled snacks, a purse tea-tin, capacino and tea sampler packages, coffee packs, refills for the tea-tin, a mug stamp, and a felt teabag wallet.

a shot of the journal showing the lovely blank pages. i'll be using this puppy at work for my tasting journal. we have to record our impressions from our tastings of the week and classes (i work for peet's coffee and tea) and this book will be perfect!

here's a shot of the portable purse tea tin. it's sorta hard to see because it's covered in lovely shimmery paper that didn't like the flash on my digital. it says 'sugar and spice" on the top in case you can't make that out.

and here's the inside of the tin with the rest of the clever saying and the little stash of goodies - tea and different types of sugars so i can have a cuppa wherever i go! i'm enjoying a cup as i type (thank goodness it's decaf because it's late and i really should be in bed now).

this is a better pic of the adorable teacup and saucer. just marvel at the creative cuteness! i'm in love with this, i keep petting it. the black and pink crochet work of art is my very own non-throwaway java jacket! i can't wait to take this to work, it's perfect for identifying which comp coffee is mine on the fridge in the back of the store at work (we can drink as many beverages as we like while working and it gets hard to tell who's mocha is who's after a while). i like to pet this too. the pink yard is fuzzy and fun!

this is a pic of the amazing handbag my partner made. it's the pefect length to sling over my shoulder & across my chest (more secure to better thwart bag-stealing bandits) and comes with a decorative red crochet flower that i can wear as a pin when i feel like it. and i just might feel like it tomorrow! notice also the lovely chocolate-y felt lining. i can't keep my hands off it. soo soft. it's gonna be my new favorite purse, i can tell.

i'm saving this close-up last because i actually squeeled when i saw this. it's a felt tea-bag wallet! it's the cutest thing EVER. damn my crappy digital camera because it's hard to show the embroidered details, but there's a little "tea" tag stiched on the front.

and here's an inside shot so you can see the credit card slots and change purse with a sweet happy face shape used to stich the velcro closure on. it's funny, the wallet i've been using the past year (poketo kitty wallet designed by susie of www.boygirlparty.com fame) has the exact same interior layout. this went into immediate use as i ripped my license and money out of my poketo wallet (sorry susie) and stuck everything in this one. i took out the cards for the photo lest my ugly license mug be thrust upon you all. i am soo tickeled with the creativity of this project and can't wait to show and tell at work tomorrow. seriously, everyone will envy me.

so a thousand thanks goes out to avian flight who knocked my socks off with her incredible generosity and amazing talent. this was a impressive package and stay tuned for a small thank-you from me! Grin
