wow that is an awesome package!!! I have been just dying to try and make a poppet!! Great job... lucky you babalina58

Now as i promised pictures of all my goodies.... i apologize for the overload of pics but there is so much stuff i couldn't help it!!

So first off i had no idea that this was on its way.... i was finishing up my things for my partner and it was time for my little mans nap, so I went just outside my door (we are in an apartment) to get a safety pin off of my stroller and there was a box waiting for me!!

This is what i found inside of it!! Oh, my bf told me that i had to wait til the baby was down for his nap before opening.... so hard to wait... then even harder to quietly open up newspaper! Wink

The first 2 things i opened up were this awesome switchplate cover and the letter A in one of my favorite colours!!

Then was this awesome box.... filled with all these goodies!!

Altogether there is: bookmarks, keychains, erasers, an iron-on A, zipper pull, and lots of magnets

Then there was this little box, in my second favorite colour!!!

Filled with pencils and erasers!!

My beautiful handmade card!!

And a giant group shot of it all!!

What a package eh!! I absolutely love everything!! Its all so bright and colourful!! It has given me so many ideas for future swaps!!! Thanks again hahnasay you totally rock as a partner!!!

Sign for my new bathroom (aka a Not Yours sign to my fiance!)

Cute pincushion! My name is on the other side.

Looks like a business card holder


Crochet hook roll woohoo!! I am going to take this to work with me and transfer all my hooks over, I love it!

Check out the applique details!

Thank you SO MUCH lindseycore!! I love everything so much! I got the last of the materials for yours today! (: And this way my first mail at my new address, which makes it extra exciting too!

well. im going to post some pictures of what I had sent along to perriell (I can't spell... i could have gone back to make sure i spelled it right but im sure everyone gets the idea! haha.)

anyhoo here goes.
I was crafting for her godson Xander. I have not crafted for a child before (other than struggling with a quilt for my future brother in law's new baby) so here is what i came up with:

my medium (well large really) item was this train coat hanger. This is not the same one but the same colors and everything becuase before i wrapped it up and sent it off i forgot to photograph it. my dad and i made this so i did cheat a bit, but i painted it and personalized it and helped cut and glue.

this one is a bit hard to see becuase foolishly i also didnt take pictures before i repackaged it. I decoupaged a billion sheets of tissue paper that i cut into squares and strips and glued them to a piggy bank. then did the little fellas name on the side.

same idea with a frame that i later put the meaning of Xander in.

a photo album for the little guys mom.

a pillow.

and a tag blanket

I also included some things for my partner, she was so nice to get the stuff made for her godson I just had to throw in a bunch of stuff. a chocolate bar shaped like a P. A ring with a P on it. a little pearl colored box with her name on it. a pearl adorned P. some P post it notes. and some small P note cards.

Glad she enjoyed it.

Sorry if some of the pictures are blurry, as much as I try to hold still taking pictures it doesn't always work. My swap partner (phoenixfiredesigns) did a great job on everything. I was impressed by the creativity with all the crafts, I know I had a hard time coming up with ideas for things to make. I think my favorite thing has to be the scrabble name piece, it's gonna look great on my work desk. Thanks bunches phoenixfiredesigns Smiley

oh my gosh you guys i feel like such a jerk.  i received over a week ago from cookiemaker but i was out of town for a few days, and have been ridiculously busy since then (working over time, seeing a lot of doctors)... so i haven't had enough free time to get on and post pictures.  i feel so bad.  but at last, here they are.  i love it all.

memo holder thingies.  i LOVE the colors.  these will brighten up my cubicle nicely.  one of the buttons fell off in shipping but that's easily fixable.

very cool sponge painted frame with my name in it.  again, love the colors.  and a black pouch too.  please excuse my cat's paw.  he likes packages too.  Smiley

crochet hook roll, and it came with furry yarn!  sorry it's blurry.

outside of the roll, with my name, obviously.  i LOVVVVE the big button!

cupcake pincushion.  the funny thing is, i saw these on my partner's blog and totally fell in love with them.  i never even told her that!  i love the blue, and forgot to take a pic of the bottom, but it's brown of course.  it's got my name hanging out of it too, hehe.  (the s is at a weird angle, sorry!)

awesome zipper pouch, i adore this circle-y fabric.  and magnets which my partner said she didn't like but i like them!

the inside of the above pouch.  i love this fabric too.  please excuse my creepy looking fingers, haha.

and last but not least... these don't have my name on them but my partner saw them on my wist and made them for me!  i looooove them.  they are fabric covered wall hanging things.  AND she included velcro, which is perfect, because my cubicle walls are fuzzy so they hold velcro things.  i think i'll be taking these to work too.

cookiemaker, again, i publicly apologize for being so slow with this... but i really do love everything!  what a fun swap.  thank you thank you!!   Grin

I finally got a chance to post pictures of my package!:) It is from my lovely angel sweetiepickles and she did a lovely job using my name. I recieved friday but i was away, got back tuesday and posted today. so it isnt too bad.
My dad said even the box looks creative and fun! Anyhoo here is my loot! minus the box because immediately boxes get confiscated by the felines. they looooovvvveeee boxes.

everything all together.

first there was a lovely sequined box with my name painted on it in my fav color!

close up of the post cards made of my pictures from my flickr of my cats! Smiley which is a big part of me. all fifteen of them.

love that eraser stamp. havent used it yet but will soon. im making a wood block for the back of it so i can stamp easier.

a nifty project bag! Smiley this will be for my "im learning to knit" stuff.

just for fun since all my posts from swaps have a cat in them. this is my cat posing like he is on the post card.

awesome stuff! Thanks so much! Thanks Bab for putting the whole swap together!

Congratulations babalina!  hope mum and baby are doing well...

So everyone, prepare to be GREEN with envy!!  My fabulous trawl of goodies is below ...

So semi group shot - there was so much stuff I couldn't fit it all in one picture!  Here we have Hedgehog pin cushion embroidered with Katherine, Katherine bookmark, Katherine keyring, Katherine 'treasures' box (better picture later!), atlanta georgia postcard and keyring (cos I like knowing about the place that things have come from!)

hedgy door hanger with traditional southern recipes, so I can make proper southern fried chicken!

Cute russian dolls, I didn't take a picture of the back but the largest one has Katherine beaded on the back...  So cute and from my wist!

My favourite piece - Katherine decoupage box - and when you open it ....

buttons and eyes!  its fab!  Unfortunately the pink wrapping paper loved it too (the joys of decoupage - sticky everything!!) so i need to carefully peel away some more wrapping paper later, but you can see the effect.

And my next favourite thing - the treasures box.

Thanks Panda, I really love it all - such fab goodies, i feel totally spoilt!   Grin  a perfect post birthday prezzy!

PS - i should also point out that everyone at work was laughing at me for being totally overexcited about my great stash!  and then i showed them and they understood ...   Wink

adorable comb that she has been using to brush her hair with all day:

Thank you so much Heather.  We really love everything and Athena has been wearing a different bracelet every hour or so Cheesy
