My package arrived from Endymion and everything is perfect!  She shared that she felt hers skills were below mine but lady you knocked it out of the ball park! 

Look at this adorable mug rug.  First I love the color combo red and aqua and the sewing supply fabric that is one side.  The flip side is pieced and reminds me of a stack of books especially with the background fabric.  I love holding a real book in my hands and reading is a second hobby. 

Next up is an adorable pincushion made from sewing spool fabric and a vintage tin jello mold.   The sprinkles are turquoise and red straight pins and what appears to be a red button on top for a cherry.  This is such a freaking cool pin cushion something that I collect.  I love it!

I think this is my favorite.....because I can not crochet.  It is a tape measure and again the colors are spot on.  Just look at this.  Oh my how small the crochet hook had to be.  I am in awe of your talent.   Just look at the detail even on the pull.  Lady I am blown away!

Rating right up there with mind blowing is this awesome necklace.  Silver my favorite.  It is a cute glass bottle filled with buttons, scissors, a spool of thread, pins and what appears to be a charm.  It is adorable the perfect length and look at how Endymion finishes the top..... teeny tiny crochet. Oh dear my eyes hurt just thinking about someone being able to do this!

For finishing up the package she bought these cute sewing themed lapel pins!

Endymion I am so happy we were partners.   Such a wonderful well thought out and crafted package!  Thank you so much for everything!

I received from quaggy today, too! She spoiled me like a long-lost sister!!!!

The enormous box was filled with so many wrapped presents...

It felt like Christmas!
The first thing out of the box was this incredible sewn bowl. It is so intricate and so amazingly well-crafted. Just beautiful! Its going to be great for storing little bobbins and bits.

Then there is this pretty candle holder. It is a painted jar decorated with cheery flowers. A small glass goes at the top to hold a candle. She sent three different scents: patchouli, sea, and citrus. Yummy!

Here are some of the MANY fun extras that quaggy threw in: buttons galore in fabulous shapes and colors. I love the painted wooden ones! Also some fruity candy and some chocolate (that my husband was eyeing as I was unwrapping!) And a little journal that contained her message to me.

But wait, there is so much more! First this cool macrame plant holder with decorated spools tied into it. I might use it to hold yarn, though. Quaggy said that the fabric bowl fits into it.

...and this happy burlap banner for my large, blank craft room wall:

Last but far from least, this heart made out of vintage spools. I saw she had made one before, and I was secretly hoping I would get one.  Hooray!

Quaggy, Im totally blown away by your talent and your generosity. All hail the quaggy!!!! Big THANKS and hugs as well. I may have to send a second package with all the other things I thought of making but couldnt for lack of time.  Wink

I have been a bad Craftster - my craft mojo has been way off and it took me forever to finish my package and ship it off - to punish myself (and decrease my own anxiety) I did not allow myself to open my package from flygirl88 until I shipped, which I finally did yesterday - which means YAY I get to open mine!  Thanks also to flygirl88 and The Raging Sloth for being patient and understanding....

now onto the goodies!!!!

Here is the whole shebang!  She sent me a We R Memory Keeper's washi tape holder - I have been wanting one for awhile so am so happy to get it!  What I did not realize is that it also spins like a lazy susan - totally cool!

A very appropriate piece of hand stitched hoopery - what I should have done was take a picture of this next to Troy's head - he was totally begging at the time, despite the fact that he already got breakfast and a couple of extras - before I even got my first cup of coffee.  Jim and I joke that he is really a 4 legged hobbit - he gets first breakfast, second breakfast, etc.  Then I swear he is trying to tell strangers on the street that we are starving him to death.

A brush holder - terrible pic, but for some reason it blurred with each one I took - this is perfect right on top of my work table - what kind of clay did you use, it seems so lightweight and smooth!

A dog journal and awesome enamel pin - and look at the cool stickers I found when I opened the journal...

I forgot to take a picture of the inside cover of the journal too - there is a great plate inside that says:

I am a crafty girl.
I make things.
Lots of things.
I'll keep making
things until my
fingers fall off.
Then I will grab
my hot glue gun
& attach those suckers
& make more things!


Thanks so much for this great package and putting a smile on my face!  I hope you like your package as much as I do mine - if not more Wink

Here is my beyond amazing package from Onyxnox!

So to give background.  I am a massive fan of Stephen King's Dark Tower (Gunslinger) series.  I've read the series 3 times, have the audiobooks and the graphic novels.  My next tattoo will be based on the books. I'm building a new craftroom and it will be Gunslinger themed. So, imagine how beside myself I was when I open up the package and this greets me:

Craftster won't let me rotate the photo, so tilt your head to see in it's full glory?  It is beyond amazing. The saying is iconic to the series.  And the crow and rose are major symbols.  Honestly, if this was the whole package, I'd still be thinking I was beyond spoiled.  Suffice to say, I love it.

Then, there are these 2 shirts.  They make me giggle.  I can't wait to wear them to my next craft group gathering.

Plus (!)  all of these supplies.  Can you believe it?  I can't wait to try these out. Probably should go clean my craft room.

The rings will be for holding washi tape.  I have so so many rolls.  Planning on organizing them by theme.  This will be a significantly easier way to see all of my tapes.

And finally, these very cute labels, which I have so many ideas for already.

Thank you so much!!!!

She also made me an awesome embroidery hoop pin cushion, perfect for  when I craft in other rooms and something I hoped for : poly clay handle crochet hooks!!!!

Thank you so much kk! I love everything!! Also sorry about the turned photos!

I received from audio! I requested with hope maybe some sloth-themed crafting stuff though I didn't really think it would happen but audio delivered! Yaaayyyy!!!!

Look at this gorgeous sloth tote!!!

It says "let me craft or feel my wrath" which is so great and fits in with all my usernames being something along the lines of on angry sloth.  Lol! The fabric choices and design/craftsmanship are superb! I love the fabric! My SO thinks it's awesome!!!

Audio also crocheted (? I think. I don't really know the difference between crochet and knitting but i'm about 90% sure it's crochet) a measuring tape cover and scissor cozy! I'm so in love with both! Especially since I can't crochet/knit for shit. I've tried both.  Lol. Ugh this is just so awesome!!! Thanks a ton, audio!!!!! <3<3<3

I received from Raging Sloth. OMG! She totally nailed everything for me. I forgot to take pics of the two needleminders she made me (I am using one right now). I will take pics of the needleminders later today. Thanks so much RS!

This tote is so awesome. I am working on a universal monster cross stitch along so this is perfect for my WIP. A super cute coin purse and a Day of the Dead needle book. All of it is so fun!

Close up of the zombie lady.

Oh quaggy, as a P.S., the sewing/craft-related words on the mug rug come from this vintage fabric from the 1980s:

The roses were supposed to be used to decorate jeans, sweatshirts, and jackets. I bought the fabric for the floral designs wanted to use them to make some picture frames but couldnt throw away the instructions that were printed on the edges. Thought it would be perfect to use that fabric for the craft appreciation swap!
