I received from kimchery today...the picture definitely doesn't do it justice.

I had a reeeallllly hard time choosing which of the colour schemes I wanted, but oh, I couldn't be happier with this beautiful blue-and-white snowflake!

Thank you, kimchery - and GatorWrangler, for organizing!  Cheesy

I received from both BigBangMomma and endymion yesterday!  It was dark when I got home yesterday, and grey and icky here today, so naturally-lit photos were a no-go - but I didn't want to wait any longer to show off the crafty goodness, so please excuse the flash photography.

I *heart* that BBM's tree has the year on it, because the response to "Remember when...?" is always going to be "Yes!"

This little guy looks a lot more chill than I am about holiday prep!

Now I can't wait to get the tree up...thank you so much ladies!!  Cheesy

Here's my offering:

(This may be a very small detail, but the hanging loops are opalescent white - like the hoops - and not silver as the flash made them look...just in case silver cord was a deal maker or breaker for anyone.  Tongue)

Mine isn't as sweary and awesome as Lindy's and CLM's, but nevertheless...

I stitched this up for craftylittlemonkey, and now that she's received it I can post it here!

It's an Emma Congdon design; I love typography!  It's framed in a painted 6" hoop for easy hanging.  Smiley  Apologies for the iffy lighting...I swear it looked fine on my phone.  Roll Eyes

Yahoo - I received the most splendidly collaged ATC from CDEeeek today!  She mentioned she hadn't taken pictures of her cards, so I did, and blocked out the personal information.

(If you don't want that up in any way, shape or form, let me know, and I can take it down.)

And that's a wrap for me!  Smiley

It looks like everyone's received from me, so here's what I sent out:

I chose to type out my address and bio for the sake of legibility.  (I think I'm the only one who's done that, at least so far?) 

All in all, I'm pretty happy with the results, considering I would absolutely never call myself a papercrafter.

Thank you for organizing such a fun swap, kartiana!

craftylittlemonkey and I were not officially paired in the ATC Address Book swap, but agreed to a side swap.  She spoiled the heck outta me, and stuffed an envelope with all sorts of paper-crafty bits and bobs along with the actual card.   Cheesy  I was not expecting all this wonderfulness!

There's so, so much!  I tried to fan everything out as best I could so it all shows, more or less.

But I think my absolute favourites are the glittery peacock paper and the vintage library due-date sheets:

Thank you for such a generous package - I can't wait to start putting this to use!

I managed to wrangle a personal-swap offshoot of the "I Love the 80s Swap" (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=457615.0) with the always-lovely and mad-talented JoyfulClover.  She sent me two gloriously 80s hooplas, and I'm honestly not sure which one to sit and stare at - they're both that awesome!

And, you guys, she named each piece!  (What else would an artist do???)

"Coloring, Interrupted":

I had listed Lisa Frank as one of my 80s loves, and just look at the sweet little kittens!  Those colours positively pop, and, JClove, I love that the background flowers were left unadorned - such a great use of negative space.  The fill stitch must have taken foreverrrrr, and I can't stop running my fingers over it.  Zowie!

"Cartoon Saturday":

My Little Pony was probably my favourite thing as a kid, and I still have a bunch of my G1s sitting on the hutch of my computer desk.  It's Cotton Candy!  And Surprise!  And Ribbon!  All frolicking together in the most idyllic way imaginable!  I know the picture makes it look about the same size as the kitten hoopla, but this one is 8" across.  Look at their little cutie marks!  (And thank you, JC, for teaching me, however unwittingly, the name for those little symbols, which I had referred to up to this point as "butt tattoos".  Tongue )  The neon yellow of Surprise's and Ribbon's manes and tails is positively mesmerizing in all its day-glo splendour!  I think I'm going to find a spot in the computer room for this one, to keep these girls near their 3D counterparts.

I am positively bowled over by both of these pieces - thank you SO MUCH for swapping with me!!

I missed that the gum was soap flavored and was quite surprised.

It was purple and kinda-retro, so I thought it fit.   Roll Eyes  (I think I read somewhere that the flavour is "rosewater", but they seem to embrace the soap comparison.)

SonjaBoo spoiled the heck out of me!

Stickers and candy, oh my!

I got a Pac-Man mug rug:

Some neato music notecards that I can't wait to use:

And the most awesome Lisa Frank shrine!

I practically prayed at the shrine of Lisa Frank as a kid, and now I can do it for real!  Cheesy

Thanks for organizing, SonjaBoo - this was a ton of fun!

I received my pretty pink package from TAOJ yesterday!

The whole kit and caboodle, including some pink unicorn lights (it's hard to see them in the photo) that are absolutely coming to work with me.

But the real stars are my warm woolies including a cowl:

...and a matching bobble hat:

Can we all just take a minute to gaze reverently at that gorgeous cabling?!  I can't knit beyond a garter stitch, and remain so completely in awe of those who can.  And although I'm ready for spring, I don't think my heart would break if the cool temperatures came back just long enough for me to rock this set.

Thank you for such a lovely, cheerful package, TAOJ!  Cheesy
