So my poor partner, craftADDchick, has had some adversity this round.  Trying to craft for me with a BROKEN WRIST!  So, I received yesterday and I love it all!

First up, a pic of the cute box chock full (perfect for 12"x12" paper storage).  I didn't take a pic of the tins, but there were LOTS!

The first little package I opened first had a cute tag making kit!  Tags, twine, stamp and washi tape! Smiley 
The pendant is made from layers and layers of paper!
And my favorite extra EVER, a baseball seam bracelet.  She said that I could take the "B" off...but Boston is one of the few AL teams I like, so it will stay intact Wink

The next little package held my "in progress" moose/deer hat Smiley  The beanie fits well, my partner was worried since she's a "tight crocheter"... I love it. 

She also made me a SLEW of stencils with her silhouette!  I think eight but right now I can only find seven, the stack was stepped on by kittens and since they're in sheet protectors they went every which way.  She sent each in both stencil material and freezer paper so I could play with both options.  All were created from a 12x12 so you can imagine, great...big...graphics!  I have already planned several t-shirts and tote bags that will be graced with these.  No pic, because lets be honest, clear and white stencils don't photograph well and I wanted to keep them together.

Last but not least is some adorable wall art!  Cindy said that each letter is from a different country on the map Smiley

And apparently Zack and Cayenne heard "explore" and they did! 

Thank you craftADDchick it was so much fun dancing! Smiley

Wow!  That is some serious spoilage! Smiley

So here's the only pic that I took of what I sent to theBrokenButterfly:

She put 2 of her loves as the color orange and giraffes.

I hope Arin likes it!

On a side note, does anyone else see a member of The Beatles in between the giraffes eyes?  I've been calling it George, complete with bowl cut.

Wheewww...sorry it took me so long to post.
Look at how cute my package is!  Sorry, no before and after, I'm an eager unwrapper. Wink
So here it is!

What you can't see is the cute little library card holders that the sweaters came in and one with a little inventory notecard.  I love that idea!

Here are some close ups:
Some truly adorable "ugly" sweaters!

And a really cool mixed media wall art piece!

Thank you so much Kimmy!  I love it all! Smiley

So I received from StickerChick87 yesterday and I have not stopped gawking at my new stuff! 
We decided to exchange a TM style purse/bag, wall art(canvas from me and an MAQ from her since she has mad sewing skills) and whatever else catches our eye from each others pinterest.  Let me say I am thrilled!
First up, 2 altered puzzle magnets and handmade stamps (complete with cute little tags)

Next are upcycled denim coasters (with a peek at my handstamped card from her as well)

A very cool MAQ inspired by a pin.  I really love vintage and flowers!  They're blended so beautifully! Perfect size to hang with my other 12x12's!

And a very drool worthy purse!  I love the size(a bit over 8"x8") and a great cross shoulder strap!

Two of my favorite details are the cute shrinky dink heart and personalized with my initials!

I could never tell that this was your first attempt, I think you nailed it!  I didn't get a pic of the yummy green and blue swirly liner fabric...take my word for it, pretty!

Thanks again Beth! Cheesy

Not sure if anyone else has this problem, but my little girl (kitten, 11months) decides I need a break when I'm really involved in crafting and is very insistent.  Today I came up with a solution:

Without further ado.  Directly from my pinterest, by way of Oz, delivered by Galapagoensis Express is my YipYip!  He is making me laugh out loud every time that I look at him(in a good way)!

Thank you so much Susan, he is ADDORABLE! Smiley

So, have you ever seen such a fantastic package and thought, 'Wow, their partner really nailed it!'?  This is one such package!  Luckdragon was so generous, I never thought I would be such a spoiled little crafter.  Needless to say, I love it ALL, even the cute card she sent with a vintage graphic.
Thank you Karen!  Kiss

Sorry for no haul pic... the house is in the state of craftastrophe.  And if I try to put things on the carpet, the kittens claim them immediately.  Roll Eyes

Directly from my pinterest:  A recycle love earth hoopla!  Felt and stitches have never looked so good Wink

Next is this adorable owl weighted pin cushion.  Fun fabrics and colors that I love.  He's so cute sitting there!

Another thing from my pinterest!  A knitted Aviator hat complete with goggles!  I got my package right before I was running out the door and was actually bummed that it was almost 65 degrees.  I'm hoping for a cold spell so I can wear it tomorrow to the American Craft Council Show and make EVERYONE jealous!

Yet ANOTHER thing from my pinterest (I told you that I was spoiled!) I don't know where luckdragon got the how to on this, I have tried this one and it was an epic fail.  This... is definitely a huge success!

And last but certainly not least is this gorgeous messenger bag.  Besides having curly trees and colors (also all over my pinterest) she nailed the lining fabric and a long strap so I can sling it over my shoulder.

And inside the flap:  A pouch, a small zippered pocket and another pocket inside the bag(you can see it trying to make an appearance on the top right)!

I am such a lucky girl.  Fortunately I will be able to send very very soon.  So sorry to my patient partners, thank you for understanding.

So I am finally able to post the awesomeness that is my art from sheepBlue!

She was inspired by the nature that was on my pinterest (funny, I got the same inspiration from hers!) Smiley

We are also both fans of mixed media and texture... I am so happy with this piece!  I love the little salamander guy on the lower right.

I didn't realize how this pic does not do this art justice.  All of the colors are very rich and the texture is so great.  I will try to take another one... :/

Thank you Emma!

YAY!  I received from my partner!  And due to my super sleuthing skills...I know who she is(already confirmed)!  I will give her craftster name not her secret spy name!
It's a magic puzzle cube inspired by my pin: http://pinterest.com/pin/418482990344081333/
Minimalist Muppets!


I can't even imagine how much this drove her nuts, I can't wrap my head around making one of these!  It is soooo cool!
Thank you Cindy! (aka craftADDchick)  Her secret spy name will remain just that...well, for another couple of weeks at least!

Wheew, I FINALLY got a chance to upload a pic.  Sorry for the delay. 
I received yesterday from La Chapa.  It's a cool mixed media collage.  I think I might call her Billie Tell, unless La Chapa had a different name in mind. 
I love all of the mediums and stuff going on!  Thank you Olivia! Smiley
