I got my tiny thing from Tristitia and I was floored!  I've admired her ATCs, but now I see that her talent extends in many other directions.  Behold my gorgeous new friend!

I love that she lives in this tiny distressed shoe....can you see the little skully?  And the colours!!!!!!   I don't know why the beautiful mossy greens in her hair didn't show up  Sad This pics shows the true colours better and the gorgeous fabrics she used:

I love how she sewed the leaves in her handspun hair...

And here's a closeup (unfortunatly blurry) pic of the shoe, there's mossy paint and newspaper scraps, leaves and a bird - I can't decide if they grew there because her shoe is hiding in the park or if she decorated herself  Cheesy

I adore her so much!  Thank you thank you Tristitia!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Okay, here are the pictures:
(they don't quite do justice - I'm not good at getting pics of shiny objects...)

Full view from the front:

Full view from the back:

Close-up of face:

And close of of collage detail at the base:

I see this getting placed on a million wists right now...

So, Bhean, how'd you solder the pieces together so well?  I was interested in making microscope slide pendants, and got a soldering whatchamacalit, but the instructions that I found told me to first tape the slides together with copper tape, which I can't seem to find in any hardware stores... did you use that tape first, or just the soldering wire?  Your piece is held together so securely...
And it that base a made from a piece of a candlestick?  Cool idea!  How'd you cut it?  I think you've sparked a new direction of craftiness for me as well as yourself with this one!

Hey guys this is what i got from my AWESOME partner!

the front, with its super intricate beaded front (i love skully stuff):

and the back, with its camo (again, which i love) and some change (as it is a change purse)

it's totally perfect as i just got a new wallet and (after taking off the tags and using it) i realized it had no change pouch Sad

thanks peihan! i totally love it  Grin Grin Grin

Okay, here's the cutest little turtle that lasandri made for me!  I *really* like turtles, and I like anything blue, and this little guy is everything good in one  Grin

Just a regular shot:

And the lil' guy in his new habitat:

Thank you, lasandri!  Cheesy

Now I just have to think of a name for him....

I totally thought I bookmarked this thread but I forgot! I love the skull coin purse and the turtle is super cute!

I received my package from i_made_it today and it is awesome. The only thing I asked for (and had no idea I would get) was a girly knit or crochet octopus.

She's so cool with her pink bow and she has the cutest little purse with a cupcake on it!

I really so happy with this - it is exactly what I hoped for and more! She's like my logo, she'll stay in my craft room and I'm going to call her Lou! Smiley
Thank you!!!

I got my package from LuxieLou and it's just what I had asked for.  It's a zippered pouch and I like how it's nice and subdued on the outside with the cute little button flowers...

and the inside is bursting with colors! 

I love that retro fabric.  It's like a little surprise everytime I open it. Thank you!

WooHoo! I got my package from Yamwam today! It rocks!

Give me a bit and I'll post pics.

So, I was going to wait until tomorrow and take pics in the natural light but then I remembered I was having surgery in the morning (I'm still in denial) and probably won't feel like it  Roll Eyes   So here is the best I could do at night in my poorly lit house.

The cutest little matchbox stash box!!!!!!  Grin

Complete with sparkly stash!!

It's a really nice purple color in real life which I love. Thanks again Yamwam!

Mayerlove and I received from each other and I just want to say that we did not discuss what we would send each other. Here is a picture of the cute knitted/felted coin purse Mayerlove sent me:

It's really more purple and less blue in real life.

And here is the coin purse I sewed and sent to her:

Thanks for a great swap!

I received from Modus Operandi today and let me say, this girl has TALENT!

Enclosed in the package was the cutest little box in the world!  She knew that I liked tulips and so she painted one on this box (both on the top and running down the side) and even included a very tiny ladybug.  The box is about 1 1/2" tall and has a 2" diameter, so it's small but oh, so adorable.

Here's a side view:


and a top view:

I received from spacekitty today. I literally gasped! My pictures don't do it a bit of justice.

She knit me a wristlet. It's gorgeous. It has beautiful blue, green, and purple yarn. She lined it with a sueded material. It is wonderful! I can't believe how stunning it is!

Thank you thank you thank you spacekitty!!!!

Heres what I recieved from flower

I think I have the worst camera known to man.  For the life of me I could not get a clear picture.

Its embroidered and it says "WILL KNIT FOR FOOD"

And here's the inside (with my kniting supplies already in...I have so many stitch markers and I hardly ever use them)

The embroidery is so detailed and so small.  Thank you flower!

Thank you so much Saor!
