Just popping in with a quick pillowcase project for ConKerr.  It's not the most exciting, but they're always in need of more "boy" pillowcases. 

thanks so much for sharing that link and info. i was happy to see a drop off in my city and already contacted them! hope to destash making some fun pillowcases

v3nu5 fry and leelah are looking great already! cant wait to see them done
beth love your blankie! hahah you showed hubby and the yarn   Tongue
bananaleg that clover ring is super cool! and love your hats, naturally
ysmeine that hat definitely fits the tree idea. very cute and earthy. i never heard of bleeding hearts before but your garland is pretty

and now for what i received from dolphinwind10:
here is the beautiful card she camde to send to me (oops, originally posted camelama's card... editing now to show dolphinwind10s... sorry)

and here are the 2 bookmarks she sent me
the one on the left is an ocean scene... (i am quite obsessed with the ocean as i am a SoCal girl transplanted to the desert  Cry ) talk about awesome. she included 2 of my pintesrest ocean related quotes "salt water heals all wounds" and "my heart is out at sea, my head all over the place" and in case you cant tell, thats a cute little sand castle just above the seashells
the one on the right is pretty pink flowers (in case you hadn't noticed, i am pink obsessed lol) with a Dr. Seuss quote from Horton Hear's a Who "A person's a person, no matter how small.

and here is the back of each of them, also very cool!

everything i have received from ZombieLili, DolphinWind10, and Camelama has been nothing short of perfect!
i nervously wait for ZombieLili and AMIFRIENDS to receive my sent packages and excitedly await AMIFRIENDS to arrive

holy smokes i received from camelama and dolphinwind10 today and i am so blown away! they both also spoiled me   Grin

first what i received from camelama:
she sent me 2 bookmarks, 1 longer for hardbacks and 1 shorter for paperbacks. they are both so dainty and elegant
this one is the shorter one made with a pink velvety ribbon and it has the Seattle space needle on one side and beautiful beads with awesome hedgies oh how i loooove hedgies

this is the longer one made with pink velvety ribbon one one side and this pretty hearts ribbon on the other side. it has a gorgeous cameo on one side and elegant beads on the other  

i hafta do a detail shot because the pix dont do the beads justice

and here is my card which had a hedgie on it and some fun hedgie buttons she sent as well. i will have to dfind something perfect for these!

im going to break here and add a new post with dolphinwind10s...

sorry if i put too many pic, but zombielili really spoiled me

first thing i noticed when i received my envelope was that a little bit was sticking out on the left. my first thought was "oh no! another victim of the post office" then i realized it was on purpose so it can fit. then my thought was "if this yarn could talk! it peeked out the whole way from germany to texas! lucky" (please excuse puppy nose... the girls were as excited as i was to get the bookmark)

here is the first bookmark i pulled out. it is a super cute drawing

then i pulled out this adorable little crocheted cupcake thong.

detail shot! me and my whole family stared at this in amazement for a good while. it is so tiny that my camera had some trouble focusing. but i swear it is adorable!

then i pulled out this fun little drawing

and then i pulled out these teeny tiny little scissors in this cute mini envelope which i believe she made. i  imagine a cute little faerie using them while i sleep  Wink

wow zombielili... thanks so much! *swap anxiety rising*

i wa splaying with perler beads the other day and made a bow and osme other things. but i got some cut cheap plastic chain and made it a necklace:

small destashing but destashing nonetheless  Cool
