Yesterday I got a claim from Gamemom42 for a raindrop cloud and man she made a gorgeous one.  She used beautiful red and white fabric that she had used to make a purse for her daughter over twenty years ago, I am totally in love with it.  I love the red, white, pink and grey together..it fits in my daughter's room perfectly. When my daughter went into her room and saw it, she said "why did you put that in my room?".  I said (worried she didn't like it) "because a craftster made it for you, don't you like it?"  She said "YES, it's beautiful!!  I didn't know it was for meeee!"   Phew!  She doesn't normally get excited about decorations, so that was a huge response lol. 
Gamemom42 also sent some really beautiful pink fabric as well, a huge piece. I will definitely find projects to sew up with that, I love the stripes and details on the fabric. Thanks so much Gamemom!

I received a super box of Sunshine from my partner kbrison today and I'm still giddy over it.  I got super spoiled!



Here's a picture of all the handmade items, which I just realized was blurry so I'll post the mini shots too...


Here's a better look at a hoopla she made me for one of my uber fav songs "Thank You" by Led Zeppelin.  I almost wet myself when I saw it (hey, more yellow!), I snuggled it for a long time!  Then she also sent a mini sun notebook version, ohhhhh!  She could have stopped there and I would have been a happy woman....but nope, she wasn't done. I also got a sunflower pincushion.....


More handmade goodies:  sun magnet, sun stamp, post its holder, plant markers, ribbon bookmark, and oooohhh a gorgeous starfish doily


Pick up your jaws guys....not done yet
I also got: adorable pineapple magnets, magnetic ribbon bookmark, and a chevron mini notebook


Here is all the extra goodies.  The list is insanely long so to summarize, I got some tasty treats, spray bottle, tons of different sized notecards and paper, mini magnetic tins filled with supplies, sunflower plant pot, fat quarters, flower seeds, embellishments, cookie cutters and lots of other adorableness


I had such a fun time with this box, I enjoyed every bit and piece of it. Thank you so much kbrison, you made my day!

Thanks ladies!

Hahahah Rockmygypsysoul, your package surely did need the warning, hilarious. What a spoilage, lucky!!

I also received some kickin mail today, I was so excited to show my husband since he was home today in time to witness my embarrassing excitement when I hear boxes being dropped at our front door

First I opened my claim from Avesthel, I was so excited when she claimed me for a journal...We all love a good journal in this house and I totally got another one.  She made me a Walking Dead journal and put so much thought into it....it's the famous doors with the zombies behind it and she used a chain and lock charms for the door locks!  The binding is so neat, I'm super impressed.  As soon as I felt the thick paper inside I knew this was going to be some sort of crafty planning book.  I've been wanting to use a mini binder (so I can add/remove pages) to keep my craftster claims in but I just NEED to use this book immediately so I think I'll use it for crafty inspiration and planning. Thanks so much Avesthel, I love it!




Next, I got another package from ActsofCraftiness, who must be some sort of magical creature because she just had her baby and still managed to craft and send out an awesome package!  She sent me a beautiful picture frame pincushion, I know exactly where I'm putting that in my office...and yeeeee, I finally got a pincushion ring!!!  Hold up, wait a minute.....she also sent me a large envelope and when I opened it I might have peed myself a bit because it was full of the prettiest pins I've seen, I can't describe how flowy they look in person, the color is just gorgeous.  I doubt I will actually use these to pin things, I would cry if I bent one, so I'm going to brainstorm on an idea of how I could display them.  Thanks so much ActsofCraftiness, I really loved it all...let us all know how you and baby are doing!!

The BTTF shirt is hilarious. How did you make the images to put on the bag and shirt, is it some sort of printable fabric?

I love the valentine wreath and the bug jar is really cute

I've had the ant fabric for forever, not knowing where it would fit in...I thought it would be a funny little surprise, glad they don't freak you out Lindy!  Im so happy you liked it all

Alwaysinmyroom sent me the softest snuggliest fingerless gloves!  They fit perfect and the deep purple is gorgeous.  It's hard to see the different patterns in the picture, but I'm super impressed with how they are made.  I have so many finger gloves and it's irritating to have to take them off to do certain things so I'm sure these will be my new favorite pair of gloves, I've been wearing them already this afternoon.  She also sent me a pile of cassette tapes so I could attempt tape pouches.  I love that a few of them are old childrens stories, I immediately thought about making lil journals with the covers.  There are tons of ideas to use every bit of cassette tapes so I'm going to have lots of fun crafting with those.  thanks so much alwaysinmyroom!

I received a beautiful peacock notebook and bonus bookmark from gala_apples today.  I am so jealous of crafters with journal making skills.  Love them both!  Thanks so much gala_apples!

That said, you'll note I'm not in either this month.  I have birthday gifts overdue to family plus a show I need inventory for, etc.  And if I join, I can't be one of those people that claims once or twice...nope, I need to be at my max all the time!  Roll Eyes

You have more willpower than me!  I signed up again and immediately thought about all the things I need to sew up this month (valentines, get well and birthday gifts) so I might actually be one of the small claimers this month if I claim at all...it's so hard not to look at the lists.  I always send all 13 of my nieces and nephews handmade valentine gifts, I like to make them myself..but this year swaps have taken up so much of my time. I think I'll do easter gifts this year instead so I have more time to get them some goodies out Smiley. I'm addicted to swapping and ohhhh so many good ones keep popping up!  Hopefully next month I'll be back full blast, nothing much going on until the summer

Today I got the cutest lil gnome hoopla from mcook72677, he makes me so happy!  Check out the mushroom fabric, I likey.  The stitching on him is awesome, I love the little x's and o's on his hat and his adorable dangly legs.  Thanks so much mcook!

Mama24boyz has claimed me a LOT in the ongoing swaps, and each time she claims me I get crazy excited because I get awesome stuff like this

1. A 10th Doctor doll!!!  His head turns, his tie dangles, and I'm pretty sure that I could get him nekkid on top but I haven't fully tried yet, but trust that I will (winkie).  My daughter freaked out and immediately begged me to ask mama24boys to make her "boo", the 11th doctor.



Check out this hair, it lays flat or you can scruff it up a bit....love that messy hair, we've been styling it since we got him


2. A super soft adorable bunny basket and bonus bunny ball!  My daughter snatched these up quick and wasn't too happy with me that I made her bring them back until I could get a picture of them.  So stinkin cute.  



Thanks so much mama24boyz....you never stop surprising me!

I got my claims from Eiseldora today.

First I got a custom (I loved having the options!) ear flap hat and oooooohhh it's perfect size and so comfy!  I look like a crazy woman in hats, but I'm totally going to rock this one...if I can get it away from my daughter.  She immediately snatched it up and is still wearing it around the house.  I love how it's not just straight red, it has hints of color in there



Next, I got a freakin PILE of Dr Who pins...I was excited to get 4 but Eiseldora totally spoiled me!  I love every one of them.  I'll just have to hold onto these for awhile and just snuggle them. Thanks so much Eiseldora!
