Sharla and I partnered up after a swap we were supposed to be in got cancelled and I received my package from her yesterday! It's so cool!

First, she sent along this grgeat bag! I adore it! I'm going on vacation next week and this will be the perfect bag to take.

She also included some summery seashell candles, a beautiful blue bracelet and a cute floral hair clip.

Thanks so much, Sharla!

I received a TON of bath items, a cd full of bathtime music, a poster and even some make-up samples to play with from my angel, Gougeaway! One of my partners had gone awol for a while, so she stepped in to be my angel. Eventually, my other partner sent, so this was a sweet bonus package! Thanks again!

I received a HUGE package of crafty goodies from Simplyfussfree today.

First, this beautiful pin cushion. The other side of it is a very pretty pink. Second, this adorable little book! I'm a book nerd and I love it!

Then, this stunning cameo necklace. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it. I have a totaly weakness for cameos. Here's the first of three (3!) shirts she sent. This one has a cute blue bird!

Snape! He's sitting on some of my pudge, but I love it! Hopefully, he'll distract people from some of my extra weight. Finally, a full blown action shot of the sewing machine shirt. Isn't it great?

Anyway, I feel completely spoiled and I loved, loved, loved having Simplyfussfree as one of my dates this round! Thanks so much!

Sharla and I are doing a personal swap after a swap we signed up for fell through. She received from me, so I thought I'd post some pics.

First, she requested a swap journal, so I attempted book binding for the first time ever and sent her one.

I also sent along 4 ATC's since I saw that she had been in a few ATC swaps previously. They're craft swap themed.

I received my fun in the tub set from goldpaperstar!

She included a ton of bath cookies, bath fizzies and some lemon sea salt scrub. (The scrub leaked a little, so the box smelled like lemons when the mailman delivered it!)

Thanks so much, I'm excited to have some relaxing tub time in my future!

Okay, my husband got the digital camera working, so here are the pictures of what I got from Animegirlie. Don't get too jealous girls, it isn't ladylike! Tongue

Isn't that soooo cute? I love it and it's totally going up in my crafting space soon! I adore it!

She included this beautiful pouch (amazing zipper work, by the way!) and included a little embroidery kit. There's some floss, a needle, fabric and although it's not pictured, she also sent instructions for several different types of stitches!

Another shot of the pouch so you can see the pretty lining fabric! This package completely made my day! Thanks again, Animegirlie!

Okay, simplyfussfree has received and is a bit busy at the moment, so I'll post some pictures of what I sent her. I forgot to take pictures of over half the items I sent (doh!), but I do have pictures of the two largest items for you to look at.

First, my attempt at a log cabin style pillow. She had this on her wist and I think they're so cute, so I wanted to try one. Who knew quilting was so hard? I think it came out looking okay for a first try, but I'm going to have to practice some before I ever attempt one of these again.

This is a wee bird that my simplyfussfree requested. I'm really pleased with how it turned out, although the attachment of the wings is something I want to improve if I make one of these again.

The non-pictured items I sent include a headband, keychain and embossed candle. Hopefully, simplyfussfree will share some pictures of those.

Thanks for all the compliments and I'm so glad you like it, Animegirlie!

Here's a little look at the ten cards I made specially for this swap:

I also included ten of the cherry blossom stamped cards and then several cards that I've bought from other crafters out there. I figured since this is just a summer fling, I should let Animegirlie know her other options out there. Smiley

*picks her jaw up from the floor*

Catpants sent me the most amazing package of summery goodies! She included an awesome picture frame (don't we all just adore rickrack?), a pouch for my sunglasses, two really cute barrettes, a headband that fits perfectly over my thick, unruly hair, a beautiful shell necklace and to top it all off, a Karl sticker! Who could ask for more? I was totally spoiled! Thanks so much, Catpants. You're making me enjoy summer even more!

I was away for 5 days and when I returned I had received a lovely package from loves2experiment!

She sent along the cutest little card with a beautiful recipe book full of dishes I can't wait to make and a sweet little ladybug pouch/coin purse to send along to my sister-in-law.

I tried to get another shot of the recipe book just to show how many recipes she put in and how lovely it looked. Along with the recipes she put cute little comments on each page and it's really great. I'm so pleased! Thanks again!
