Continued.... Here's the last 4 ornaments I received.  I was concerned the message would never upload unless I cut my pictures in half...

Here's the darling little knitted bird from hazelly.  I love the bright color.  It is too cute, knitted ornaments have a special place in my heart. 

From cinnamon teal, a ceramic snowflake ornament.  Another that the picture can't possibly do justice.  It's beautifully shiny-glazed, and I love the color. 

I love this star from Ninaprettyballerina.  If I knew how to make these, I would probably spend the rest of my craft time til Christmas making them in every color.  But since I can't do that, and I don't have nearly the time, these fabrics are perfectly festive.

And here's my little felt gingerbread man from bec99.  Adorable!  The pink cheeks, the bow, the seed bead trim,... All those little details are awesome.
This was, as usual, a totally cheerful and entertaining swap for me.  I probably won't even be back around to swap til next year just for this again.  Thank you everyone for the ornaments, they were perfect.  And thank you GatorWrangler for hosting this.  I'm so glad I decided to check into craftster on the last day of signups.  This really helped me get pumped for the holidays.  :0)  I can't wait for the rest of my ornaments to arrive to their destinations...

I'm so excited, I got my last 2 ornaments today!  I LOVE them all.  Most of our family has birthdays the beginning of December, so we usually don't put up a tree and lights until after the 13th.  So I'm showing my ornaments off now, and they'll remain in a small box on top of my entertainment center for a couple more weeks.  Without further ado...

Here's a beaded wonderment bell from iSewCute.  There was one of these on my tree growing up, but it got lost somewhere along the way, and I'm so happy to have another.  It's more sparkly and prettier than I even remember.

Here's the snowman Snowglobe from GatorWrangler.  It's so unique, and the iridescent glitter really makes it.  I love the way it looks along with Christmas lights. :0)

A starfall ornament from goldfishpollywog.  I was so excited to be able to have a rainbow ornament.  It is lovely.

Here's the melted snowman ornament from JillHogan.  Not that any of these pictures are perfect, but this is so much neater in person.  And so much fun to play with! After getting everything inside, everyone had to have a turn.

I haven't gotten nearly as much done as I would have liked to this week.  My father in law passed away Saturday, and we've been doing a lot of traveling back and forth to where he lived,.... And cleaning up.... Big messes.  But today I'll be taking a much needed day off, and last night I got my things reorganized to work on ornaments for a while today.  It will be, hopefully, very therapeutic.  :0)

Sorry if this pic is terrible.... I just happened on craftster today after a long hiatus, and I saw that sign ups for one of my favorite swaps was ending.  Anyhow, I tried uploading a pic from my phone, and it seemed to work (one wish I was hoping craftster made possible at some point).  I'm just not sure how it looks on a computer screen but I'll check that out tomorrow.  If it is huge, squashed, upside down or not visible at all, I'll know in the morning, but I can definitely see it....

This is an example of a felt owl in b&w,... I've made them in other colors and can make them in pretty much any colors you would like... But this is the only pic I have.  There will be some kind of Christmas button on the middle, but maybe not that same snowflake.  I hope these are acceptable offerings with me joining at this late hour...

I got my twinchies (and inchie, rinchie extras) from meowari!

All of these have a lovely sparkle on them somewhere.  It barely shows in the picture.  The peace one is so glittery it dazzled me when I opened it on my porch in the sunlight.  The felt kitty is perfect,...  grey goes so well with a red glitterized background.  The squirrel,... so cute.  The wings, are they... twirly birds?  Helicopters?  From... maple trees, I think?  (I'm sure there is a more technical term, but I used the terminology I used as a kid!)  They are also glittery, and the squirrel is drawn and cut out to go on the painted sky background.  Just as the mermaid tails (hanging on an underwater clothesline!) are cut out and placed in the water scene.  Each of these is really detailed.  I love 'em, and the time you spent perfecting these, meowari.  Thanks a bunch. 

OH, and I totally forgot...  The tail of the cat is movable.  It swings all around.   Wink

Hi, I'm Kim, from Louisiana.  I don't mind artful nudity or a bit of gore, but my style is mostly vibrant, whimsical, bright, colorful, modern, happy stuff.  Bordering on cute, and a little bit offbeat sounds great to me!  I like dimensional elements, but I do plan on framing, so nothing too thick would be great as far as how you make mine, please.  Big buttons would be about as thick as I would prefer.  I'd rather nothing political, please.
A combination of my themes is great.  If you would like to do 1 of 8 different ones, just claim me for the one that sparks your interest initially.  Translate my themes however you would like.  (OH, and I totally do agree with the 'handdrawn over stickers' thoughts...)  You can make me any of the three choices, but I will most likely make a rinchie into an inchie anyway.  Have fun, however you do it.   Smiley

Animals doing human like things (wearing clothes, playing poker, whatever)
Wizard of Oz/ Alice in Wonderland
Or your favorite fairy tale
Anything relating to Hippie/ 60s/ 70s/ Retro
Rainbows (and I get a big kick out of things that aren't traditionally rainbow - see profile pic)
Classic rock
My favorite TV shows or movies (listed in my profile)
Fantasy or mythical creatures (mermaids, unicorns, gryphons, dragons)
Cute or googley eyed animals (owls, peacocks, wild animals are favorites)
Something related to the states I'm from (Pennsylvania, California, Louisiana)
An inchie version of your masterpiece! (Favorite thing you made)
Art/ Art Supplies (from crayons to sewing machines)
Moveable inchie
Things with wings (normal things with wings or inanimate objects having wings)
Theatre/ Musicals
Something Shakespeare
Made primarily not out of paper
Mini version of a masterpiece (Escher's Eye, Mona Lisa's mouth etc)
Inspired by pinterest
Floating in the sky
So ugly its cute
Fluffy Cats (especially black and white, all white, and fat grey ones!)
Woodland creatures (owls, raccoons, squirrels, etc.)
Inspired by your favorite era
Favorite children's book
Colorful nature
Dr. Suess and/or beginner book inchies
Carousel animals
Fun/Goofy monsters

I have received lots of pieces recently.  I figured they would all be pouring in at the same time so I held off on posting pictures, and the last 3 sets pretty much arrived around the same time.  However, I have been holding on to Alexampersandra's for over a week now.  Sorry for the holdup.   Wink
From Alexampersandra:

The ROYGBV piece is really clever.  The other has green gems and they are so reflective on the silver background.  Love them!
Next I have pieces from mlookyloo1:

Cute rainbow piece, and I couldn't have thought of a better orange than candy corn. 
Next, these are from seeuudee:

I love, love, love the rainbow piece.  It will most likely get the award for shiniest piece of the whole puzzle.  The blue, of course, is lovely too.
Next I have pieces from llisaredd.  We agreed to swap 6 pieces in the beginning.  Since our theme was so similar, I was excited I could do a red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple for her, and she did 3 rainbow pieces and 3 assigned color pieces for me.  Here's the rainbow ones....

She used such different things making each piece and they are so creative.  I'll still be altering lots of my own puzzle, and I'm really impressed that not one piece I got was something I had jotted down to do myself. 
And here's the purple, green, and red llisaredd did...

The red tootsie roll piece is great! The purple and green are both fuzzy, and the frog piece is so cute too.  All of these pieces were all so perfectly cut out and placed too.  Thanks for altering 6 for me, Lisa.

Thanks, everyone who sent me my most recent pieces.  I'm loving them all!

Now, I have to alter 24 pieces myself.  As soon as this hurricane/tropical storm moves along and isn't a threat to my immediate area, I'm planning on jumping right into altering the rest of my puzzle.  I couldn't resist putting together what I have so far,... and I'm loving it.

Those are from me!   Wink

I received 2 awesome pieces from sarahj2001 for my Quotes puzzle:

Love the graffiti lettering and the little "Sock it to me" s in the tabs.

And Neil Young:

The art work on this piece is just so charming.

Thanks Sarah!
