i recieved my wonderful package from mountains and clouds! look at its bubble-wrapped splendour!

first, i got STICKERS! (they will adorn everything i own soon.)

a lovely postcard and a very nice note... aloha indeed!

onto the crafts! the first thing that fell out was this FRACKING ADORABLE little pumpkin brooch! i immediately put it on and am still wearing it.

then i got some baby squirrels! look at that crosshatching! (is that some sparkly mod podge i detect?)

and three even teenier sparkly pumpkins. i mean really. they are so squee.

and, wait for it... bunting. BUNTING. how did she know?!

my favorite- fall foods! a lollipop, popcorn, pie, candy corn, candy apple, and halloween candy!
we also agreed to send snacks from our region (did i mention mountains and clouds is from HAWAII?!) i got hawaiian snack mix and dried cuttlefish.

we have something similar to the hawaiian snack mix in our "foreign foods" section at kroger, but it's spicier. my current favorite part are the brown twisties and the brown flowers. i'm still working up the courage to try the cuttlefish. (my brother has one in his aquarium, so you understand my nerves.  Roll Eyes)

the whole package!

thanks so much, mountains and clouds! your package was so amazing, i might have to beef up mine a tad...

ok, I FINALLY got my computer/cameras talking... so this should work today!

I got THE BEST package from RhymeswithOrange!

She was super sweet, and gave me stuff I love. <3
this gorgeous headband!! which is wool!

this is a better pic of the colors it includes

and(2 skiens!!) HANDSPUN WOOL!!! Something I am always jonesing after! 

She had dyed it with eucalyptus because I had a pin that had these gorgeous redish copperish colors that comes from natural dyes... naturally, they turned this amazing color of green instead, which I still LOVE! it's amazing.
also, RhymeswithOrange, I dunno that you can see it, cause I can't seem to get a good picture of it, but there is a coppery twinge in a few places.

this gorgeous orange colored skein of handspun yarn also!

the cutest giraffe off my pinterest!

group shot!!
also, she sent lots of candy, but that was lost/taken the instant the package was open! Wink silly family members

thanks so much!! I love everything this was such a great swap!

I got a crazy good package from Onyxnox. Unsurprising, she's spoiled me in other swaps too. Next time It'll be MY turn.

(it's woodburnt)

I got these designs in both orange and brown. Orange is my favourite colour!

And then four necklaces. FOUR.

And with that, our swap is finished! Thanks everyone!

Thanks for a fabulous swap! Smiley
I just realized Rubylynns didn't post pictures (she's probably too busy enjoying the goodies i sent her Wink ) so I thought I'd post the photos I took before I shipped.

First a warm Granny Scarf

Next, Fingerless Granny Mitts

Then a Slouchy Granny Hat

And a Granny Motif headband

I received from Sarah. She sent lots of extras. Lindor chocolate, I noticed the boys eyeballing those. Woodland office supplies, a vintage mug soy wax candle. It will look nice with my other vintage mugs. Ginger tea, I am going to take some to work with me tonight. She also sent pocket tissues.

The wristwarmers will come in handy. We've had a few chilly mornings when I get off work. I like the pattern.

She made a felted pillow cover from a sweater. I placed it on a pillow I have until hers gets here.

I love these potholders. They are so cute, and they are acorns! If all I got were these potholders, I would be very happy.

Two days ago I was thinking that I needed a heating pad and I received two small one today. The cute heartys made from felted sweaters will look nice  sitting out in the open so I wont forget where I stashed them.

Thank you for everything.

I received from Gala_apples.  A lovely set of autumn inspired notecards I am going to use right away, a leafy hoopla that I will hang up as soon as I get more hooks for my wall, and two beautiful fall inspired necklaces.  I especially like the bird one.  Thank you very much!

So cute!  I LOVE that pumpkin pincushion!  And the doily is Ah-mazing.  I just don't have the patience for that detailed of crocheting, so I have a nice collection of vintage ones, instead!  Smiley 

I received from ysmeine yesterday, so here are the lovely photos.  She was having trouble with one item, so photos of it will be posted later.  Smiley 

First, the cutest little fall terrarium: 

I have wanted a terrarium for a long time, and this one has some of my favorite things in it... mushrooms and a hedgehog!  I had a hard time photographing it to get the cuteness.  It also sustained major trauma during mailing... gotta love the USPS!... so I pulled out my trusty glue gun and some tweezers (cause my hands are too big to get down inside there!) and re-glued everything.  All of the pieces had come undone, so I tried to see where the "voids" were in the moss and re-recreate it as much as I could.  Hope I did an okay job, ysmeine!  One more pic of it from the top: 

The next thing I received made me giggle.  It's corn soap! 

Now, this is probably more amusing to me than it would be to other people because ysmeine is from Iowa and I am originally from Iowa, so we sort of have a family tradition in my house of trying to find the weirdest corn-shaped object.  I've seen lots of candles, but never soap, so this gave me a good laugh!  Plus, it's locally made from her town, and I love handmade soap!

Finally, the piece-de-resistance: 

It's a crocheted owl rug!  I had pinned this a while ago, and she took it straight from my wishlist!  I love it so much.  It's possibly too cute to go on the floor, and may end up being a wall-hanging, I haven't decided yet.  But either way, I LOVE it so much. 

Thanks, again, ysmeine!  I love everything, and can hardly wait to see what this extra is you have in store for me!  Smiley

I received! Pics to come soon! Grin

OK!! Here is the awesomeness!!! I totally needed the motivation to finish up Monnie's stuff lol! I just need to box up and ship out to her tomorrow or tuesday!

This is the whole shebang!!

She sent an emormous package  Shocked

These are the extras!! Some costume jewelry, glow in the dark nails, nail art, pencils, stickers, erasers, and socks!!

She made me some heat packs for my sore muscles lol (the orange material on the right)! She didn't fill with the rice to save on shipping which is totally understandable! She sent money for the rice but I can get that super cheap so she is getting that back Wink She also sent a handmade shave soap bar and some lovely herbs (lavender, spearmint, peppermint, comfrey, and elecampane root) and a spray for the heat packs! A beautiful reversable altar cloth with ribbon accents! A couple stones, jasper I think?? Some lovely boxes (a coffin, a handpainted one, and a woodburned one). A woodburned spoon wand, and a gorgeous woodburned sign that says "There are more of us than you think." on a wonderful slab of wood!!!

Its funny because there are a couple items that are eerily simliar to the ones I am sending her lol! It was a great package as always Monnie! Thanks so much!

My pictures didn't capture the beauty of the wood nor the fabric on that altar cloth which has a metallic sheen on the pumpkin side!

Kbrison received from me several days ago. She's been busy with work, and learning the ropes of her new camera, so I decided to go ahead and post pictures of what I sent.  kbrison, feel free to post your own, as well.

I made her a wreath which she is putting up in her classroom, and a crocheted table runner which took me FOREVER to make! I was seriously stressing I bit off more I can chew.  Here's a picture of everything.

The table runner on my table:

I picked my daughter up from school and followed the UPS guy down my road, knowing he was stopping at my house with my goodies from kbrison. And, what goodies they are! Holy cow, that woman spoiled me rotten! I absolutely adore everything!!  I've got pictures taken, and will try to post them later on tonight when things settle down for me.

Posting now--

Thanks Kathy!

First off, she told me she was sending not one, but two LARGE boxes....uhm, yeah....

I'm not sure what I want to show off first....I guess I'll post what filled up MOST of the boxes....something straight off my pinterest, something I was forewarned I would have to assemble:

Cute, right?

Although....I would have been super happy with just this treasure:

The little gem on the purse is my super adorable pumpkin needle book which I love!

She also sent me a kit to help me make little fabric balls, and one of her old Girl Scout scarves, since I'm one of the leaders of my daughter's Daisy Troops.

Kbrison isn't done yet though, she's been working on a Batman hood for my son, and a Hello Kitty for my daughter, but hasn't finished them yet. But, she didn't leave them out either. She sent stickers and things which they are very excited about!

Thank you very much! I've very much enjoyed being your partner!
