That butterfly... :swoon:

I received today from jenleahlynn and boy...  it knocked my socks off.  Shocked

I cant get over all the different textures and details.  I particularly love the centerpiece roset.  This is a true work of art - thank you so very much.

I need to catch up on this gallery... Oh my gosh I love the badges, I need to figure out how to custom make designs on my embroidery machine...  So many lovely things...

But I am here to create my post and show of my goodies received from Kittykill.  You could say she spoiled me, but that just doesn't do it justice...  

The giant box...

A workbook of lovely creative prompts.

A magic key <3 <3 <3

A giant mug full of chocolate therapy (and yummy coconut lip balm)

Finally... The piece de resistance...  An incredible, magical, fantastic work of art.

I just can't stop crying.  I am so touched, so extremely blessed, to have received such a wonderful, thoughtful, beautiful package.

Wow I love the beautiful stitched work everyone is doing!  It must be stitchy season... I picked up a cross stitch needle for the first time in probably 20 years to knock out my affirmation.  I hope that y'all don't think this is sacrilegious to the spirit of this swap... I found a ton of affirmations and I am incorporating them into my day-to-day life, but at the end of the day a lot of them come down to this.  Plus, being so depressed this time of year means I really, really need to remember to have a sense of humor.  I didn't create the pattern or anything; it is one I bought from Etsy. I don't know if sharing the link is permitted?  I'm happy to share if that is appropriate.  Smiley

Holy cow, pretty sure mine are are right there at the top..  Grin

I received TWO amazing snarky ornaments from Griminspirations.  I honestly can't decide which I like more - they're both pretty epic.  Check it out!

The front - all innocent looking and adorable...  I am in love with the mini ninnis... <3  :swoon:

With all the snark just waiting to be discovered (kitty sticker positioned to keep it safe for all ages  Grin)

I received THREE adorable matchboxes today from Onyxnox!

I love the delicate poinsettia the most; the petals are a delicate vellum - like texture.
The wintry scene is beautifully detailed, and the snowflake is so elegant.  They're a gorgeous ensemble. And, all three were chock full of adorable goodies!

Lots of paper ephemera, which is one of my very favorite things Smiley
Adorable fish and mustache paper clips, including different styles of mustache  Smiley
Adorable tiny Christmas light beads  Smiley
The cutest little festive wintry animals  Smiley

So much awesome!

It's actually evaporated milk. The sweetened condensed milk will likely work, but it may turn out too sweet. I will update the recipe. I have it written both ways in several places. Good luck.

So... DON'T use sweetened condensed milk.  The texture was like gritty thick paste and waaay too sweet.   Undecided

I had just enough of everything left (plus a can of evaporated milk in the pantry) to make a batch the right way - night & day difference!
The new & improved one is YUM! Cheesy

Oh my heavens.  I got so far behind and now I'm afraid I will miss someone / something if I try to catch up.  This whole gallery is full of WOW.

Here is my attempt to get caught up - if I passed someone please know it is not intentional... Every single swap package I've seen had a few drool-worthy items.
greybird - the little kits are brilliant!
elliot_anne - I love your food theme going throughout - really cute stuff!!!
Onyxnox - those snowmen are fantastic.  Smiley
smmart - I love the techniques I can see in your work - such pretty colors
calixita - holy cow that folder is amazing.  So clever!!  And the goodies inside are fab
StudioANF - I love the organic look of the items you sent, really nice, and I love the tiny mushrooms
loves2experiment - that mug rug... HEART!!!!!
geekgirl1000100 - your envelope is almost as amazing as the stuff inside, wow!
curiousfae - I love the writing techniques on those bookmarks - I'm super jealous of your skills on those!
kbrison - I love the techniques you used and the gorgeous little ATC with perfect quote
SunnyDawn - your buntings are adorable
thanate - I want that (Kali-like) paper doll!!!
tapestrymlp - Ok seriously you need to start selling your artwork (if you're not already).  You are amazingly talented and that ATC... just... wow.  I love it.
Mlsocci74 - pretty little feathers and I love the twine add-in!

Whew...  I hope that caught me up?  Eeek I hope I didn't miss any  After all that, prepare to check out the awesomeness I received today from Wulf!

The outside of the envelope - hand made from nice craft paper with a gorgeous owl (owl post!  Cheesy)

This handmade book is so impeccably made and fun.  I took soooo many pictures but still didn't even capture everything - it is gorgeous.  There are a couple of fun hiding spots, and a nice spot in the back to stash extra decorations and items to add.  LOVE.

A tiny notepad that even has the serration so that you can tear out individual pages if needed
Moons!  <3

Oh my gosh another animal group name ATC... This artwork is out of this world:

A fun bunch of extras including some super delicate origami stars

An adorable TinTin (more correctly, TinTin's dog, Snowy) magnet - WOW this artwork is on point!!

And a perfect match to my sweet Wire Fox Terrier Emma!!!

Thank you SO MUCH, Wulf - this was truly happy mail.

I'm at work so I'm trying to do this sneaky fast... My home computer has been down for the count (we're replacing it but the new one isn't ready / fully hooked up yet) and posting pics from my phone is always problematic.

BEHOLD!  The adorable Hansel & Gretel house I received from fluffypants!   Cheesy  Be sure to check out the little witch peeking out the window...  

I love it so very much, and am super impressed by the artistry.  SO PERFECT.
