I recieved from JanelleJ today and I am absolutely in LOVE with my tiny treasure. Its adorable and perfect! She used 2 of my themes, cupcakes and pink. Here it is (get ready to be wistin')

My mom watched me open it and gasped with jealousy!  Wink

Here's what came from the envelope I tore open in excitement:

Here's a close-up (outside, with vaguely good lighting)

And more

An even closer close-up of my lil bead sprinkles!

Action Shot!

Thank you so much for an incredible swap, JanelleJ! I couldnt have gotten a more perfect thing!

I recieved, I recieved, I recieved! I got it yesterday, but by the time I had checked my mailbox, it was too dark for pictures.

I just gasped when I opened it up... gerbilgal had made me the most beautiful, delicate, mesmorizing choker-style necklace ever!

I LOVE the colors, they're so beautiful and remind me of my favorite season, autumn!

And look! An adorable seahorse charm on it!! I didn't think anyone would be able to incorporate seahorses, but gerbilgal did and she's amazing for it! I keep touching it and looking at it and wearing it.

Here's another shot of the actual necklace part... It looks like it's knitted, perhaps? I don't even know how she could have done that, it's so perfect and there are sooo many little colored ribbons intertwined!

And lastly, an action shot! I just love it soooo much. It rests perfectly on my neck!

Thank you so much, gerbilgal!!

Here's my wonderful OTT from TracyinNH! I had to take a few pictures so you could see all of it. I'll make most of the photos clickable.

Tracy chose to combine two of my themes: Carnival Sideshow and Zettiology and she did so in an awesome way!

Burt Reynolds and an elephant wearing a snazzy hat? How can you not click the rest? Wink

and my favourite side:

Thank you so much! I'm going to keep it in my craft room to store trinkets and buttons. Cheesy

I received my fantastic OTT from TheLast Kodama yesterday!  She fulfilled all of my themes! amazing!

It's perfect for me.  This cute little denim pouch clearly covers two of my themes;  4. circles and 5. lime green.  Besides being sewn so well, I thought that the circles reminded me of the tops of thread spools, so I think is also fulfills 1. sewing.

I picked my package up just as I was heading out the door with my camera equiptment and not wanting to carry my big wallet with me I immediatly put the pouch to work holding my bus fare and neccesities (checkcard and coffee shop stamp cards).  Inside is where we find the next theme: 3. vintage.

TheLastKodama tells me that the lining fabric is from her grandma's stash. Also, notice the little bell on the zipper? I love it.

I thought four themes fulfilled was fantastic, but I got the biggest smile when I saw my fifth theme fall out of the pouch;

My fifth theme was 2. cute nature.  This teeny little mouse is so cute! I didn't mention it in the questionnaire, but I have a soft spot for mice since I kept them as pets for years until I developed an unbearable allergy to their bedding and had to give them up. 
This was a fantastic swap, thanks so much TheLastKodama!

Here is what I received from rectangel.  She made a beautiful coin purse that holds a coffee sleeve.  She combined my gerber daisy and coffee themes.  Thank you so much rectangel!

I received from my amazing partner Sparky17 today! I was so excited when I saw what she made for me!

Introducing Ogdan the Octopus!

Isn't he just perfect? Look at that top hat! It's removable, too. She put a piece of velco on the bottom so that it stays put, but has the option of coming off.

I absolutely love him! Octopi are my favorite and Ogdan is the most colorful (love the color combo, BTW) and sparkly one of all. I just can't stop looking at him.

Thank you SO much Sparky!

I also got this super cute card that I thought I'd show off. I love those veggies!

I received from phoenixfiredesigns a few days ago and now I get to show off my lovely loot! Be prepared to be really really jealous!

Inspired by my "tree" theme and an item in my wist, she created this gorgeous tree of life pendant! It's made with rainbow moonstone (love!) and swarovski crystals. Here's a pic she took:

And here's some action shots:

It's truly gorgeous! When I got it, I just kinda sat and looked at it for a while, admiring the moonstone and the lovely shape of it. Honestly, this pendant is even prettier than the one in my wist (which I need to take out now. Tongue)

Thanks sooooo much PFD! Cheesy

Here is adorable OTT from kwality570.  I LOVE it!  So cute and finely made.  On to the pics:

She chose my 'Schnozberries' theme and the house pincushion was inspired by a very similar item on my wist.



And just for fun, in its new home:  Cheesy Cheesy

Thank You again Leann!  It is perfect and I LOVE it so much!

I'm so glad you like it! I hope it fits okay. I'm not a very experienced beader and a novice sewer, but I made a few versions of the mask and this is the best one.

I have a few more pictures of it in some different angles!

Modeled by my lovely sheep.  Tongue
