I finally got the camera working!  Thanks for being so patient.  Here are all the beautiful things I received from the talented crafters on Crafster for OWS 32 and 33!  If I missed anyone, I am sorry!  Let me know and I will get pics.

I just received a Crop-A-Dile from calluna.  It's amazing!  I thought it was only for scrapbooking (paper), but after more research, I can punch holes in metal, leather, fabric, etc.!  Thank you!

She also sent a corner punch and some lovely tags!

I received not one, but two pairs of boot warmers from frosty772.  They are beautiful!  Nobody around here has seen anything like them before!  I get lots of compliments.

I have had a japenese sling bag on my wists forever!  Arwena chose me for a surprise purse from my wists!  I was hoping it was that one and it was!  She made it reversible and I love the fabrics.  I can't decide which one I like the best!

I received four tea wallets from maxparadise, but only three are in the picture because my sister snatched one from me!  Three were made of fabric and one was made of a heavy cardboard.  They are really nice!

I just want to say thank you so much to everyone!  You are great!

I am getting no response from bhean about the package I sent her in OWS32.  It was an altered book shrine from her wists, but I gothed it up a bit because her profile said she like goth.  Here are some pics.

I hope she liked it!

Yesterday I received from homerof2, catpants, and atsuko.  I got some awesome goodies.  (Sorry so pic heavy, everything came at once!)

First, from homerof2, there are fat quarters and scraps for my postage stamp quilt and some cool stamps from Canada.  The turtle is my fave.

Next, from catpants, I got some fingerless mitts from my wist that are sooo cute.  We got 6 inches of snow here yesterday so the timing was perfect.  I love them!  She also sent me a fat quarter and some cut squares for my postage stamp quilt and two birdie necklaces. 

Both of the mitts in action:

And last, but not least, atsuko sent me FIVE Blythe dresses!  The first pic is Rayne modeling her favorite in my extremely messy "just got home from shopping" craft room and the second shows the other four:

There are kitties, plaids, stripes and peter rabbit!

Well I received two wonderful packages when I got home today!

First from Poerava:

A beautiful knitted with beads in it cuff bracelet and 2 pendants. I am very impressed with the knitting but couldn't get a closeup since my camera is being wonky. Poerava, if you have a better pic please post it I want you to get well deserved credit for the bracelet!!

From nofury:

A make your own paper kit with lots of extras....

and this handmade instruction book

and these cute cross stitches

There was also a book about Feng Shui (i need some order in my life), a cute keychain that says "Lead me not into temptation...I can find it myself" (so true), all kinds of goodies to add into the paper (like sequins, easter grass, wrapping paper, yarns, actual grass, etc), 2 pairs of earrings (I think), a knitted cuff, chinese checkers (which I love), a beautiful wood covered mirror, and of course the hoop for the deckle and mesh. All of which came in a giant box full of shredded newspaper for me to use (which made me giggle cause it escaped everywhere). I couldn't take anymore pics cause of the above camera being wonky again!! Note to self-may be time for new camera!!

Thanks so much Poerava and nofury!!! I loved everything!!

I'm sorry I'm just now getting around to posting this Rosanna9041 (crazy, crazy weekend)! She made me the bestest package! She claimed me for a mini scrapbook for my nephews, but sent so much more (and did a totally amazing job on the scrapbook!) And Dane and Aidan are going to totally need their goodies now, 'cause they have a new baby brother who is getting all the attention!

Really cute tote bag! The lining has all kinds of animals on it. Pirate tattoos for the boys, and transformers activity book, they are going to flip, and some note cards for me!

Little craft kit for the boys, emergency vehicles, construction stickers, and tissue holder

Stickers, mini scrap book, corners, and photo keychain

Still with me?? Ok, here's the scrapbook! (well some of my fave layouts, it has tons of pages, and is 8 x8!)

Thank you!

Two packages in two days! That's awesome!

First I received from educharme. I just kept pulling out more stuff! She claimed me for a bento book, glass beads and a surprise.

First the Bento book. She said she wasn't happy with it, so she's sending me another! Very thoughtful, and I thank you! I'm sure I'll be using both!

Then the glass beads--BEAUTIFUL!!!

and more.... (I love the heart and the leaves!):

The surprises!!!
Some great recipes! I can't wait! Where did you get the recipe cards? I love the green color! and your handwriting is ... PERFECT!

And (it's so beautiful! it's like she knows me!) a blank Bento Recipe book she embellished. (again: so BEEEEEEEEEEEutiful!)

Tell me that's not gorgeous! You can't, can you! I actually gasped when I pulled it out of the package!

Next day I received my package from girlosun_9 who claimed me for some work placemats/silverware rolls and napkins. She was concerned about the fabric, but I really, really love it!!!

First set: LOVE! she make the napkin an interesting shape too!

Second set, done with metallic silver thread which I LOVELOVELOVE and which I've heard is very difficult to work with (thanks!)

She added this awesome wave design at the top:

YAY to me! lol

I really do love the metallic thread. I have some dress shirts that have just a bit running through the fabric. Makes me feel SEXY!!!

I can't WAIT to make something with those beads!!!

Awww, shucks. You guys make me blush.   Kiss  (And quilted, I saw my scrabble coasters in your glass cabinet in some pic you posted awhile ago, and was absolutely giddy that someone actually liked my crafting that much. Seriously, I was floored.)

And lest anyone think that I don't get as good as I give, here's the awesomeness awaiting me when I arrived home today after a loooooong day of work.

From the lovely oneredboot, two checkbook covers, four knitted squares and an awesome card that is going directly into my altered art/atc epherma pile. The knit squares are the very first ones (yea!) for my Craftster afghan and will always hold a special place in my heart. I love how different they are - I was figuring I'd just get plain ol' garter stitch - what a spoiler you are, oneredboot! And the checkbook covers are perfect. I explained to oneredboot that I keep losing my checkbooks and needed something pretty to help me keep track of them. I didn't know she was going to send me both of the ones I needed, though!   Shocked  Thanks so much, oneredboot, I love it all!

And from nofury, there were two packages for the two times she claimed me (at least so far!)  Cheesy  The first was my custom return address stamp. I'm in love with it! I have a new obsession - pelicans - and nofury found the perfect stencil for it. She created the artwork and had it ordered special just for little ol' me. I love how hefty this guy is - this puppy will last me for years! And I wanted to block out my actual address (stay away, internet pervs!), but it's the same font as my name. It really is absolutely perfect in every single way and lots of you guys will see it in person someday as I'll be using it on every single one of my swap packages (and the crappy bills, too)!

The second package was a wisty surprise. Some lovely, super-soft and very cheery wristwarmers and some awesome "happy homemaker" notecards. The wristwarmers are perfect, nofury, and they came at a perfect time. Our shop office isn't heated (just a spacewarmer) and my hands were going numb today when I was working up proposals. These guys will keep my hands warm for sure! And I love how soft they are, they're gonna be perfect! (She also included some extra yarn, just in case, and the uber-cute flowers you see on there are attached with pins, so I can put 'em on something else if I want.) Nofury, I don't have the card in front of me, but I think you said they were knit from Belgium yarn? Man, I feel spoiled! And the notecards are perfect - my hubby's going to get one of these mailed to him for sure!   Grin

Thank you so, so much oneredboot and nofury - I feel incredibly lucky and spoiled to have been chosen by you two. You are both amazing crafters and Craftsters and I can't thank you enough for cheering up my day!

So, I got my awesome apron from the lovely Therisa today! Brighten up the ridiculous line I had to wait in to send my package out to la_chrystelle(on its way to The Netherlands now!). Knew I shouldn't have went on Tax Day, but I didn't want to wait any longer.  Anywho, on with the pic-whoring:

Modeled by my lovely desk chair:

Close up of pretty ribbony detailing:

On me, front view:

On me, back view:

On me, not showing off my butt, but demonstrating how the apron securely protects the area I tend to wipe my hands on:

Oh, I am so happy! It's too pretty to cook in!

Elmpixie received so I thought I would post what I made.  I hadn't made a row counter bracelet before, but I thought it turned out pretty good.  She likes amethyst, so I used that, abalone, aventurine and some dyed shells.

Here is the bracelet: (excuse my crapola pics, i forgot to change a setting after i took some etsy pics in my "studio" and everything has a grayish tint to it)

matching earrings:

one set of stitch markers:

second set:

and 2.5 yards of toile fabric, which she is making a summer dress with that i can't wait to see!:

I am glad you liked everything elmpixie, and also super glad we are doing a personal swap because of it!!
