Who's ready for some action shots? Here's me wearing the lovely headband. Sorry to flood the thread. I'm just really pleased with my package from ashestoashes Which is so remarkably well done. Her stitches are so neat and tidy! and the headband is so cute! My hubby loves it!

Here's Sampson hanging out with my cute little dragon who is saying "Please finish me!"

And here he is with his new pallies the other stuffies:

He is sitting with my two most special, Ringo the Raccon and Dickens the Donkey.
And here are some more of Braut the koi:

And the whole package:

I'm really thrilled with what I sent her. It is my best work sewing and crocheting wise. I made up the pattern for everything as I went which makes me so happy! I have never done anything like a koi before so this was a lot of fun.

Wow!  I knew we were going to have an awesome gallery!

I received my little stuffie from Millik yesterday and she is so adorable.  First up, here's the side of the package, which totally cracked me up:

And look at this little sweet bat that was inside:

I love her little belly button.  

Millik did a little research (or else I told her, I don't remember which), because I absolutely love bats.  Like really, a lot.  This bat's name is Meredith, she is 15, 5 inches tall, she weighs 4 oz, and she's from Fargo, ND.  Meredith loves canasta, diet cola, All My Children, Elvis Presley, and Insect Casserole.  She dislikes bowling alleys, kung-fu movies, opera, telemarketers, and lasagna.  Millik warned me that Meredith has a little ebay addiction and sure enough, I turned my back for two seconds and there she was, looking at signed Elvis memorabilia.  I caught her just before she fell for yet another hard-luck, selling my treasures story.  In fact, the autographed picture she brought looks suspiciously like a forgery, but I didn't have the heart to tell her.  

Here she is, joining some of her new friends.  You can see her holding her prized Elvis picture in this photo:

And here she is having a little nap:

Millik also sent some little homemade treats along for my pups, and boy do they love them:

DANCE, MY PUPPETS!  Thanks so much, millik!  I love this little stuffie and I can't wait til you get your package from me!

Meet Henry Q. Zebra! (sent to me by the fabulous wootwoot)

Henry came with a passport and photo album from his homeland and a nice note informing me of his story thus far. The short story is that Henry was adopted by a zebra family in Nigeria--they found him in a shopping bag with a receipt from the Nigerian Zoo. After many years of depending on his siblings to help him get around on the plains, Henry has decided to set off to see the world. His passport is larger than he is, so airport employees had to help him around to the gates on the motorized carts. He likes Twinkies and other sweets a great deal, and he unfortunately managed to read a copy of Us Weekly in the airport that made him worry that people in America might mistake his rotund belly for a "baby bump."

So far, Henry has been very respectable and is having a great time at our home in Minnesota. Here he is with all of his possessions:

Henry is only about 6 inches tall, and he has the most adorable little tail. He did not want me to post this photo on the internet, so please don't tell him you saw it:

He was worried about being cold in Minnesota, so his friend Bebe knit him a hat and scarf set! The hat has the most adorable tiny ear holes. He showed us the picture of Bebe from his photo album so we would know she is a baboon.

Some of his zebra cousins...

He went to the Mall of America and was quite amazed at the concept of GlamourShots:

And here he is waving goodbye to all of you:

Thank you, wootwoot for a fantastic swap! I love Henry... he is the absolute cutest!

=D My partner received, but she's out of town... So I'm going to go ahead and post. Smiley Hopefully she'll check her packages before she checks this thread! Haha.

I present to you...


He likes to.. hang around.

His bio

And my extra:

his best friend, Armless Ninja!  Complete with a mini-book made of each of his panels (www.armlessninja.com -- one of my half-finished projects)

I also included like 10-15 postcards that I picked up for free @ comiccon. Smiley 

Yay!  I really hope she likes them...

Oh yeah...  I mentioned before that he kept peeking out of my purse at work.. (I brought him with me cuz i had to take to post office after work) I actually took a picture on my phone!   

Look at what I had to deal with

Tsk tsk.

hi! i'm finally posting pics of what i sent my partner (she is currently not in good contact, i guess you could say...  Cry) ANYWAY. here's Milky the tail-less cat hehe (she also has a furless paw... but we can just ignore that Wink)

Milky likes sleeping, chocolate milk, and the color blue. she dislikes waking up, strawberry milk, and the color red XD i wrote her stats inside a (makeshift) chocolate milk bottle

for the extra, i made milky a soft blanket, and personalized it for her to give her sweet dreams  Smiley

I recieved today!! I love everything about this package! Thank you mylikes   Cheesy

Presenting Donovan "Donnie" Dolphin and, his partner in crime, Sammy Seal...

The two best friends love to cause drama, their motto is "gotta keep it lively"

Cute origami fish <3

Awesome shells in a cute blue box. I collect shells so this is perfect.

...and as soon as I turned my back they decided to stray away from the idea of a quiet stay at my house. They even turned the T.V. on to watch Footloose! Thanks again for the best swap ever!!

Violet and Spike are adorable! I love the little carrot cake as well.

I received an awesome package from Eliea today!

She sent me an amazing koi stuffie. He is a Doitsu koi, and his name is Braut. He's 3 years old, and his favorite food is sausages.

He came with a snazzy card with some info about him and about koi in general(I've tried to convince my parents to build a koi pond for ages, but they won't go for it...)

She also sent the coolest lilypad pincushion, some lobster fabric(another favorite animal of mine), and some koi stationery.

And the package itself was pretty:

Thanks so much Eliea! I adore Braut, he's going to live on my bookshelf with my other stuffies.

I received, and I do have to say that great minds think alike...owls just belong in trees!

I wanted to get my kitties in this pic, because the tree is HUGE, that and my kitties always love checking out my cool swap stuff!
My owls name is Houlette (french for owl  Cheesy) and she is from France, Aix-en-provence to be exact.  She's a vegetarian, and she is a kind owl.

I wish you could see her belly better, she has a crazy floral print going on there.
Here's one more pic for size comparison, courtesy of Aqua Teen Hunger Force


She is so beautiful!!!  Thank you sooooo much Alicelovester!  Houlette will find much love in my house  Grin
