I recieved my wonderful package from Bigmouth, I think yesterday, anyway it is wonderful.  Did I already say that?  I travel a lot and she made a lot of stuff good for travel so it was perfect for me.  In fact, I am going on a trip next week and I can't wait to use it. 

Ok here you go, everything together

The beautiful flower covered picture frame
some really cute decopauged(sp) wooden salt and pepper shakers

This really handy mesh, makeup bag with beautiful lettering that says, of course, Freegranny

The cutest little flower covered boxes
and check this out, a tape measure wallet with velcro enclosure

and some really neat rock magnets 
did you get these rocks at the dollar store, Bigmouth?  I like them a lot.  I love everything thank you so much.

Momma bear just came over and got me set up so I could see the gallery pics today--an I am really impressed with everyone's creativity! I really appreciate the gecko necklace pic also. When mamma bear and I lived in Hawaii we had a gecko that lived in the skylight. We named him Charlie and he was so cute! He would run around the wall in the evening, doing his job - eating mosquitos, etc. and combating the cane spiders at night. He would get excited and fall off the wall every once in a while. We really enjoyed Charlie.
It is hard to believe what wonderful items are being crafted from Dollar store stuff. I am sure when I get mine, I will be delighted. Freegranny.

ok ladies, I am so sorry that it has taken me so long to post pictures of all the lovely stuff that chelleyf sent to me.  I recieved while I was away and my brother in laws funeral and I am getting caught up. 
here it is all together.  My favorite color is pink and she went with a pink theme.
the denim bag she made me, I love it. 

this wire wrap necklace and earings with a slide pendant.  these are beautiful.  It was hard to get a good picture of the slide but it says "Im not fat, Im fluffy"  with a fluffy animal picture.
lovely pink beaded necklace
pink beaded earings that I love to wear
this is a great pin cushion that I can hook on anywhere a very pretty pink beaded flower. 

It is all wonderful.  Thank you so much Chelleyf. 

(modified to add earings)

I sent my swap today to Bigmouth. I don't think I am notifying everybody the right way but can't find where to send stuff. I did get a Delivery notification number, but I am in the lobby of a hotel in KS and it is upstairs in my wallet. Will appreciate anybody who can make sure this info gets to the right place. I am on my way to a funeral in WYoming but will check back in when I can. Thanks. Jacque

OK, I'm signed up, but at closer observation I have a question. It says anyone can join that is 10 lbs overweight to 200. Does that mean 200 lbs overweight or 200 lbs total weight. The answer to that question could alter my qualification status. Don't reject me now after I have this all planned out!!!freegranny

Sent in my stuff. I have already been to the dollar store and am so excited about the elegant, flashy, junk accessory I am going to make. Hoorah. I usually don't know what to make! Freegranny

I recieved my wonderful swap package from Patty_o_furniture.  I really like everything, she went with a butterfly retreat theme. 
Here is everything together

She made this wood plaque with woodburning, it says "Until you spread your wings, you will have no idea how far you can  fly"

Above the wall hanging is pictured a beautiful paper butterfly

She also made me these lovely butterfly coasters

and included the butterfly stamp that she used to make everything in the package
I am in love with these stamped butterfly slippers that she stamped for me and I really needed new slippers,

You can also see in the pictures the "to go" coffee mug that she decorated for me, I always need a to go cup and will use it a lot. 

Thank you so much for everything, Patty.

I really like those penguins. How big are they? What size is the pouch? Did you do the embroidery with a card or freehand/ How did you do the crayon thing? I found out today that I only have one more week with my foot in this stupid shoe that I can not sew (drive, or shop) in so my goal this week is to get my sewing room ready! I do like the cat too. You are doing so many great things!  I am going to be in a craft fair on Oct. 21,22. Plan on turning out some nice & easy things the next 2 weeks.
