I just got my laptop out from repairs, not fixed a trip back and mega hours at work but finally able to post pictures from two claims arrived this week!

1st up from  missmoppet --> quaggy for a plethora of those crochet fruit appliques

and boy did missmoppet deliver not only did I get amazing fruit appliques that I want to add to a blue jean purse but she also sent 5 sock monkey cozies that are oh so cute.  This give me 10 in total to give to my sister for gifts to her quilting group!  She is gonna be shocked!

here we go!!!! Just look at the tiny stitches makes my eyes hurt and my heart beat knowing someone spent so much time on this fantastic fruit and all for me!!!!

some close ups!!!

missmoppet also sent me 5 adorable  sock monkey cozies!!!  
These will be spread around to my sisters quilting group

Can you see the specks of color in the 3rd one?

And missmoppet sent me an extra, a hot pad in my kitchen colors!!!  This will not be used but cherished by hanging on the wall!!!!!

I was truly spoiled!!!!!

My 2nd claim came from

Alliekat914 --> quaggy for jewelry and fat quarters

alliekat sent a fabulous package of spoilage too!

Fabrics to add to my stash..... I never buy solids and always have to rush to the store when I need them which I always do so these were perfect!  Then there are 2 owl fat quarters and a piece of yardage with the cutest owl print, alliekat stalked me well!

This black and white print is so cute!!!  I want to use it to make myself something special!

Smarties which disappeared today at work as an afternoon snack!

Next I opened this cute tin!!!

and spoilage was inside!  I love dragonflies, silver and black so all three rolled into this beautiful set of jewelry made me awestruck!  I wore the pieces to work and had so many compliments and so glad no other females live in my house!

missmoppet and alliekat you are both amazing,  Thank you so much for such wonderful claims!!!!!!!

Hello, just popping in to see you amazing pictures about goodies I've got from Linda (alwaysinmyroom) She claimed me for fabric bags and some supplies! Some days ago, the post man gave me a big box! My son was freakin' out what did HE got, so we started to open the box... which had itself some notes:

So I already knew, there should be awesome things inside. And then, look at these!:

And in details: first of all, I've started to check the supplies I've got:
20(!) sheets of fabrics, amazing colors, And I loooove their floral design! I have some idea already what 'll do with some of them - you'll see that in the OWS 101's gallery soon Smiley):

Also, I've got a full set of threads (the picture cannot show all of the colors well, but these are amazing too!) 2 of them already set up to my sewing machine Smiley:

The sequins: Exactly what I needed! I know, I wrote that too, where to buy those, but still, it's a big help for me! I haven't gut any more of these (only some orange left I think), as people are constantly buying these hearts from me in every colors(https://www.etsy.com/listing/173775311/heart-ornament-set-blue-felt-ornaments?ref=shop_home_active_9), and I cannot get the same sequins in Hungary. I've bought a lot of others from Ebay, but this bag is the perfect! Smiley: So I really have to thank this one separately!:

Also, I've got some tiny containers: they are already in use for my beads and charms - perfect size! Also, one of the bigger one is a lego clown's bed righ now, I don't know how to steal back from my son lol:

... and still... supplies: a cute measurement tape (wohoo, with INCHES! I so hate converting metric sizes! Smiley):

I've got a nice postcard too, and here is what the envelop hided inside:

I love these sweets, but we have got the small bags only here. I've seen a nice zipper pouch with these bags, and I am so dieing for that, so I'll have to make it. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/136585801169116891/ - now, I can make 2 of these. Smiley

And last, but not least, all of these things were packed in these awesome baskets:

Look at the fabric and a small thing where you can write what is inside:

These are awesome, perfectly made, and the colors are perfect too! (The smaller one is in use already, I've got there all of my ready to ship claims. Smiley)
Also, I've got a small tissue paper bag, I love it too:


And if you think, that's all, you have to see my son found the polyfoam peanuts inside the box. We will use those too for decorating something, he played with those for like 30 mins ("pink snow" - and he threw them up to the air, and running below Smiley). It was just fun to see what he loves most in the package Smiley)

So... again, Linda, thanks a lot for these awesome things, I am really looking forward to claim you back - and pay you back these stuff somehow Smiley)

Alliekat914 --> Grab a coffee for Christmas fabric gift bags, Canadian Starbucks item and some tiny containers. 

- it took 40 days, but it's finally here! Smiley) I've got a HUUUUUGE box from Alliekat914 - 3 claims together. Color coded, so I could split them up! (2 other claims will be in 101 gallery - with the extras Smiley)

First of all, here is a picture, what I saw when I opened my box:

... now, you can imagine, how exited was I ?!... Cheesy
Let's look at the first claim items:

Amazing fabric gift bags (now I have to start working on the things what I'll put inside Smiley):

Did you noticed how amazing those fabrics?! Smiley))

Tiny containers:

And the amazing things from Starbucks:

- opened:

Can you imagine, that this was one claim?! These are amazing things, Allison has made crafted things and also sent me a lot of supplies and gifts! I love everything (drinking my special latte from the cup already! Smiley)))

Thanks a lot again, Allison! Smiley))

I received from both Avesthel and Grab a coffee today.

First up is a beautiful journal in my favorite colors from Avesthel. I absolutely love the swirly design on the front. I'm going to be using this journal as my new planner Cheesy. Thanks again Avesthel!

Next up is some gorgeous jewelry from Grab a coffee.
8 pairs of beautiful felt earrings with several necklace pendents. (I'm going shopping this weekend to find an outfit to match the grey and purple ones Tongue)

Plus 6 pairs of polymer clay and bead earrings. I love the small detail on the turquoise and yellow earrings.

Along with 5 bracelets to mix and match with the earrings.

And some cute little felted dogs.

I put one on my key chain Smiley

Thank you ladies both so much!

Quaggy really, really spoiled me!  She claimed me for Halloween fabric and papercrafting supplies and sent some amazing stuff, I tell ya!

Fabric!  There are some amazing ones in here. Vintage prints, woodland trick or treaters, bandana print.  I love them all and have no duplicates in my huge stash.  And not just in the fabric, everything else falls into the brand new category for me!

A pieced UFO (I'm thinking incorporating it into a few placemats) and pom poms.

Felt spiders, buttons, chenille sticks.

Stickers, labels and stamps.


I'm really looking forward to working on this calendar for next year.  Thank you so much, quaggy!!!   Is it October yet?   Cheesy

I received TWO packages today! Whoo hoo! Double the awesome mail goodies. Grin

First, from anna.wahnsinn I got an awesome book, "One Yard Wonders," a black lace "cami band" and some beads! The book is big with tons of ideas and a whole section of ready-to-use patterns too! For someone with a sewing machine and aspirations of learning how to do it but very little results so far, this will be a lot of help!

I had a hard time trying to get an action shot of the cami band. Turns out it's hard to photograph your own waist. LOL Basically, you can wear it to help when a shirt is a little too short, or even if a shirt is a little too low cut, etc. I was trying to get a photo of it under my shirt to show but neither is a great shot:


It's perfect though. A pretty black lace and fits just right!

Thank you anna.wahnsinn!


Next up is some art from rockmygypsysoul She made me TWO pictures of my favorite flower: daffodils!

The first one is a really pretty blue background with daffodils in a vase. The second is more abstract and more stylized piece.

I need to find some frames and I'll be adding them to my wall-o-craftster art! Grin

Thank you rockmygypsysoul!

Thank you, phoenixfiredesigns and LadybugsAndBumblebees, it was a pleasure crafting for you!

Here is what I sent to LadybugsAndBumblebees. Who knew I had so much orange I'd have to decide which not to use...

I definitely had lots of fun making this for you!

Group shot:

Little clicky pics:

I had started with the turquoise coloured lanyard (and something that got ditched), and then checked your Craftster profile for favourite colours...

The skull bracelet was made from beads I had just received in the bead soup swap from Ratfinkz, who made that bracelet you had pinned... I just added the little soap bubble plastic ones. And my daughter "helped" me string that...

Awesome stuff! I love that memory game too, and those fabrics are awesome!

I am always late with the pictures, I'm sorry about that. Started working again - from home -, and my son is still with me. He had flu with fever for some days, I've got Influenza too... bad days, but we are better now.
Let me start with a package I gor earlier from quaggy, she claimed me for some Fabric Christmas bags (I know, it's crazy in January/February, but I am an early bird with the gifts lol)
So, here are the whole bunch of awesome stuff I've got:

She sent me 13 (!!!) fabric bags, smallers are bigger, all of them are amazing! I love these fabric, here are some closer looks:
these are the smaller ones:

this is my favorite fabric:

oh, and this:

And look those pompoms:

And she also sent me some ribbons for these, I love those too (especially the ric-rac one):

I love everything, thanks a lot again! Smiley I can't wait till Christmas!

I have also been bad about posting pics, hence the photo dump!

First, spikefan picked to make me something for my holiday decor resolution!  Here is the cutest monster bunting that is meant for Halloween, but I might keep it up the rest of the year in my craftroom! Showing off the inchies she made and the letter "D" ATC.

Aren't they cute?

I realized that she sent me two ATC's...here is the "D" again with the "L"... two different styles...perfect for what I plan!

She also sent me a bunch of tiny crochet hearts...I think I might string them together or maybe sew them on some mini bags I am making!

Thanks so much for claiming me!  I hope to do justice to what I am sending you next round!


anna.wahnsinn also claimed me!

I got the most lovely beaded necklace in my favorite color: red! It is about 30 inches long so I had to loop it to take a picture...I wore it on Valentine's Day!

She also sent me the cutest beaded "B" inchie and the "C" inchie...I am working on an alphabet sampler of inchies!  Thanks so much!

That monster bunting is adorable!

I received a package from texscrapper yesterday and another from Averia today.  LUCKY ME!!!!

I got a hair towel from texscrapper, and while this may not look exciting :

it does the job perfectly:

(I'm adorable, right?)   Cheesy  I will use this daily (unless it's in the wash . . . then I'll pout!)!!!!

Averia sent me a biscornu -- the loveliest biscornu I have ever seen!


Averia also sent me a Kumihimo wheel to make round braids.  I admit I'm pretty excited about this . . .

Thanks for swapping, ladies!  And thanks for your awesome organizing abilities, Averia!  (and you, too, spikefan!!!)
