Hello!  I got my awesome package from Cheebz, about a week ago.. I think, I have been really sick so time has kinda blurred for me.  But anyway, Here are the pics of my awesome package from my awesome partner.

The whole she-bang!

A pair of Thair fisherman pants that she made and dyed herself, oodles of embroidery floss, stabilizer/transfer for embroidery, including some that she drew Walter, the butterfly winged walrus on( He was a swap item from a long time ago! ), a bag o' cool jewelry things to be used in jewelry, a forest stamp and a fairy stamp and an ink pad, CUTE hair thingies that i am supposed to share with my daughters (shhh! I haven't told them that yet), some leather for me to try my hand at making hair thingies, cool pictures for my wall, and chocolates! (we know I was deathly ill- the chocolates are all still intake.

My favorite items from the soon to be jewelery bag.

The pics that are gettig framed this weekend and going up in my bed room.

My other pics did not come out. I will take close ups of anything else people want to see.  If you ever find your self partnered up with ms Cheebz count yourself lucky! She is awesome!

Now I share the awesome package that Cheebz sent me.  Cheesy

Big box with tons and tons of newspaper, including the funnies!

ohhhh,  a Jellyfishie!  Beautiful, and deadly, he now lives above my bed. She included a note on the label that reads "Stolen From Mom" - my little ones try to steal all my plushies.  (What she likes)

A gorgeous miniature journal that has a lady from a vintage Montgomery Ward catalog.  She loves Art Deco and Fin de Siecle. I have just the thing to go in it too!  (What she likes)

What's this?  We come back to this later.

An envelope! With letter and pictures inside.

Awesome photoshop collage pictures of the very beautiful Cheebz. The lady is seriously pretty! (for the Who I am )

Mouse Ears! (Orlando, Fl - Where she is from)

Cute Magnet board with Magnet - The Magnet is board is a shuttle,  which funnily enough is close Orlando at the Space Port and near Houston we have Space Center!   The shark magnet is reference to JAWS! (where she is from)

That odd wrapped package earlier?  A gorgeous recipe jar!

With Pin-up recipe card -  I am in love with pinup girls, I actually have two in my kitchen above my sink.  Cheesy

And ingredients for bourbon balls ( minus the bourbon and corn syrup but with a sweet story about them, kisses that taste of bourbon and joy *sigh* )

I LOVE everything.  I am a very lucky girl!  I have close-ups of that gorgeous cloth too, I love it!

Thank you Cheebz, you rock!

First the can -  It is covered in rose paper   Wink ! With pictures of fairies   Cheesy And quotes from fairy poems and a blessing.   Grin

The first thing I spot is an awesome chainmaille keychain.

There were two petal bags - One for me and one for my oldest daughter - Although she is trying to snag both of them !  Grin

Gorgeous fairy art for my walls!

And one of my favorite things! - A print of a peach tree blossom with a poem I wrote about peach trees!  I was so touched by this. I never thought to do this, my sweetie was miffed(mockingly) that he hadn't thought of it especially when he saw me tearing up over it.

I can post the poem if anyone wants to read it, but I think I may have posted too much already.  Grin

4  Jewelry a year in the making! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by sweetestangel on: May 30, 2008 10:01:51 PM
I never make jewelry for myself, I always make it and give it away.  But about a year ago I bought some beads for myself and promptly lost them.  I found them this past week and they finally became the projects they had been envisioned.  Grin (although they still need clasps!   Roll Eyes)

Earth Goddess - Unkanite and Leopard Jasper

Voodoo Queen - Carved Bone, Vintage Jet, Amber drops, and matte seed beads

My Grandmother's Cameo Reborn - My grandmother had this cameo for as long as I can remember, she told me it was a gift from her father's mother when she got married. When I was a kid, I loved looking at it. I was going through a bag of jewelry my grandmother gave me after my oldest was born and I found the cameo at the bottom without the necklace she had always worn it on.  I hide it away not wanting it to get lost or broken.  On one of my last trips to my local bead store, they had all these gorgeous vintage beads and this one set reminded of of glass I had been cataloguing in my Archaeology Lab.  When I got it home I realized that it would look perfect with the cameo.  So ramble over her is the only one of my new necklaces with a clasp -

Close up of the cameo and beads, but mostly the cameo Smiley -

5  End of the Year presents for teachers! in Beads: Completed Projects by sweetestangel on: May 30, 2008 09:50:58 PM
My daughter is a tough kid to have in your classroom. She is really smart, creative, and has a temper and a strong sense of justice to go with it.  She had a really rocky start to her year and put the teachers through the ringer, but they took it all in stride and worked with her to make sure she stayed engaged appropriately in class.  So at the end of the year I made them lunch and tuck in a surprise in to their respective bags.  One teacher is an artist as well as a teacher and the other is from the islands and is starting her own literacy program there.

Pearls, Red Jasper, Turquoise, and Black Glass with Sterling Clasp

Indian Agate and Copper

They both said they liked them. I really didn't want to give away the Copper one, I was/am in love with it, but I know the teacher will get more wear out of it than I would.

Everything is so neat!  My partner has recieved, and told me I could go ahead and post some pictures!  I think this swap brought out some of the best crafting I have done in a long while.  Anyway, here are pictures! 

Little indoor llamas, and beads, this is the only close up I have.

This guy is wearing the beads as a necklace for the moment.

These are pins.

So is this one, though I think he is my favorite out of all the pins.

This is everything except for the stuffie but I already put up a picture of him. 

All told there is a cria pincushion, stuffed llama, set of 4 hoof print pins, guard llama pin, 2 flower pins, 9 beads and 3 figurines, and a reversible messenger style tote.

The tallest one is about 2 inches tall ear tip to toe tip and about and inch from chest to tail.   I am going to be making some more tonight or tomorrow night. I could take pictures of it... Explaining is kinda wierd.    It involves lots of little balls and try to make odd shapes.   

Here is a better closeup.

10  Re: Reading Rainbow Book/Craft Swap Gallery in The Swap Gallery by sweetestangel on: March 04, 2007 08:10:16 AM
Ok, Here is the image feast I promised!

This is one of the crushed corners. THe rest was just as squashed, but all the pics I have include addresses and I dunno how to blur them out.  I was very upset especialy because it was clearly marked fragile.

Here are all my helpers trying to see what they can abscond with.  The box was filled with pretty tissue paper that protected everything with the help of bubble wrap.

The book was ... Stardust by Neil Gaiman. I have been wanting and wanting to buy this book  and school books and kids books had kept me from getting it yet.

Here is the glory of my package an illustration by ghostgirl, that is just beautiful.  I am trying to figure out where to put it.  In the corner it says remember your heart's desire, I couldn't get it to come out well in a picture. My oldest wants to steal it for her room, but that is not happening! 

Close up of detail.

Here is an illustrated bookmark.  The paper behind it is an article of short scifi stories.  The bookmark is from the story Neil Gaiman.  Very cool!

She also included 4 CROQ 'zines.  They are very interesting, I finished reading them yesterday afternoon. 

And the whole enchilada!

Spoiled, I was very spoiled. THANK YOU GHOSTGIRL!!!!
