- prepare yourself for a few pictures -

I received my swap package from Courtneykilledit and she's got crafty talent to spare.

So much to spare in fact that she's passed some on to her daughter who did this self portrait:

If she looks like that she is the cutest kid in the WORLD.

Courtney can draw too, don't think this little pic on the lovely letter she sent me escaped my attention:

She made me this trivet from recycled fabric becuase she knew that I have a soft spot for recycled crafts (it would have taken ages, I really appreciate it)

This hat made from wool and skill

and these hair clips (which could also be clipped onto the hat or a bag or a headband or about a billion other things as I've discovered)

and here's everything together because, well, why not?

As you can see I was motivated enough to use fabric for a background but not motivated enough to iron it first, but thankfully everyones eyes are distracted by courtneykilledit's clever creations!

Thank you so much for making my first swap a wonderful one!

SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!! I just got the package and I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE everything!!!! I was having just a stupid sort of day and having this waiting for me at home cheered me up right away! It was ridiculous too because I kept pulled out the first thing and went "Oh man this is the best thing ever" until I pulled out the second and third thing and said the same thing!

Here's what Paige sent!

A lovely letter to verify that she is indeed, a real human being and not my imagination. Smiley

Monster pillow!!!! It's so cute, my daughter keeps trying to take it! I'm keeping him on my desk!

And you know, in case anyone was ever visiting and wondering just how big a nerd I am:
It's my favorite Latin saying, completely in green! It looks like she even painted the hoop! Also, this was immaculately done. Whenever I make something like this there is a "wrong" side which the world should never EVER see, but the back of this looks pretty good. (Jess, there is a wrong side to your big item. Just a warning. Smiley

And finally, proof that I am possibly the most spoiled swap recipient ever:

As a crocheter, I can tell that had to have taken much longer than a few hours, unless you work at the speed of light. The stitching is beautiful and the yarn looks like it might be sock weight? That couldn't have been easy! Anyway, it's beautiful and soft and I can't wait to wear it with my dresses during shows and around campus when I want to let people know just how much more fancy I am than all of them.

I came home from class today to an awesome and beautiful swap package!

Here is everything still all wrapped up!

An awesome pillow case with a betta fish on it! I love it! The fish is all shiny and pretty!

On the other side Jess put my name!

And she included some beautiful earrings and decorated bobby pins!

Please excuse the poor quality of my photos! I plan to add more(better) photos!

Thanks Jess! I love all of it! I didn't get it in these pictures but there was also a really pretty purple cord type thing...and I kinda wasn't sure what it was...Smiley I will include it when I add more pics.
