I am going to start this gallery off with an avalanche of planty goodness! Because some people *cough*- Laura -*cough* do not know the meaning of one medium and one small. Seriously, look at this giant pile of packages!

Everything was neatly wrapped in colour appropriate tissue and strung together with string and tape. Numbered too!

K, first up is this full sized binder pocket insert. It is honestly the cutest cacti fabric in the universe. You did an awesome job with the stitching and the GROMETS! Beautifully done my friend.

Inside the pouch was something I love to receive because I like sending a nice card with swap items and these are gorgeous. I was tempted to include a photo of each one individually but that would make this a VERY long post, lol.

Next up are these really cute embossed tags, one shows what's on the back of all of them. And the clear window pouch? I know a daughter who would love that but she is not getting it off me, no way no how. It is adorable and is going straight into my purse. I love it! She can have the lettuce pin. Maybe.

That is all more than enough times two but there's more! This completely charming hoop with a CATcus, haha.

I really like how the texture of the fabric looks different on each coloured part. That's really neat.

And, because she's an over-the-top kinda gal, not one but THREE extras.

This guy cracks me up Cheesy.

Thank you so much! I sent you a paltry amount of items in return, boo. I will say though that I made 7 mediums and combined them into one so sort of balances out? Nah, I'll have to hit ya with something extra special along with your masterboards.

Thanks PB for organizing such a great swap! XO to you both <3

I received a lovely package from StainedMushroom! She actually managed to mail me plants, I was very impressed!
The pots she painted, and then once I planted the wee baby jades and century plants.

She also sent this aloe, and all of these packets of seeds and stickers:

Some really pretty art! It's now on my pin board; I love the coppery bit with the purple!

And because I'm somehow not spoiled enough already, a pretty rainbow spinner and a nice little home for my air plants.

Even the cat enjoyed your packaging. Thank you so much!

My package from LFF came in on Saturday and it was FULL of goodies! She definitely spoiled me Grin

First of all, there was an impenetrable layer of plant-themed wrapping paper (protected by loads of tape) on the outside of the package, so it was so exciting to come home to Smiley

LFF sent sooo many things! Here's the big pile of treasures all together!

She sent stamped plant markers, a saucer, with a leaf pressing, and a super fun feather accent for my houseplants:

A bajillion "antique gold" animal figures (which all have already made their homes among my plant friends Cheesy)

And the giant T-rex planter to match! This guy roooocks!! I have three dinosaur planters now and they are all different Grin

And of course, what's a swap between two fiber lovers without a bit of fiber fun? She sent me some gorgeous green fiber that I will for sure be putting to good use <3

Thank you for being such a fantastic partner, LeapFeetFirst!!

I received the coolest package from PerfectlyBohemian! It is full of my two favorite things- plants and fibery goodness.

First up is a set of amazing airplant canvases with the pouches made from felted fiber. I have been curious about airplants for a while, so I am super excited about having some! I've already hung these up all over my house!

PerfectlyBohemian also created the most perfect felted artwork for me as well! I love the colors and the textures and it fits in perfectly with the mid-century vibe I am trying to create in my home.

Look at all this texture!!

Here it is in it's new home in my kitchen.

PerfectlyBohemian also send me a bunch of succulent cuttings that I can't wait to propagate!

Thanks so much for everything. I truly love it all.

I just had my popsicle break interrupted by the mail lady with a fantastic package from kittykill.

First up, she stitched and colored a throw pillow with monstera leaves!

Also, an adorable tea towel with the happiest cactuses!

Closeup thumbnails because they are too cute not to.

And fantastic extras - violet seeds, a little pot for a baby plant, pretty coaster, suction cup air plant, and the most perfect book ever about growing plants from window scraps.

Thank you so much!!

I received from ChameleonHound today! I'm super thrilled with this precious package.

All together some seeds, a pair of socks, a precious pot with kitties and mushrooms, chalkboard plant markers (clever!)

A CUTE little mushroom magnet.

Prayer flag/bunting


Thank you so much. I had fun and this packaged really brightened up a rough couple of weeks.

You all make such lovely things. It was nice to see everyone have fun with this.

I received my wonderful package from bec99 last week & am able to finally post the pics.

She cross-stitched a couple of nice cards: a cactus & a vine:

A pretty cross-stitched african violet on a small canvas backing:

And my favorite of all , my very own crocheted cactus!

Thanks so much, bec99! I love all the things you made for me!

So...craftylittlemonkey was worried that because I sent more "items" than her that somehow hers did not add up.  She's kidding herself because you guys. I received my package today and IT. IS. SO BEAUTIFUL. AND. SO. AWESOME.

Everything all together:

How funny we sent each other cactus erasers! A fun "Can't Touch This" note pad, (not pictured) a fun little page of drawings to help me recognize my plants, and a BAG! I LOVE reusable bags.

You guys. These were just extras!!

Look at this beautiful display of succulents I can display on a shelf. We'll probably finagle a hanging system since shelf space is limited, though.

I squealed. Did you squeal too? It is so pretty! And, there are so many! I used to crochet a lot. This took some time! Wow! I think I really like the one with the white edges. It really makes it pop!

Another view:

Thank you so much Tisha! I really really love it! I recently killed a cactus and I think I'm killing some succulents (I just haven't figured how where to keep them!) so I know these will never die!

Thanks Jessica for a wonderful swap. Such a great theme.

Oh my goodness! Loving the gallery so far! I received from dharma_rebel! She totally spoiled me.

Stickers, a face mask, cute lunch tote, a pin and awesome cactus candy!

The prettiest garland! I just love the colors, the roses and of course the cacti!

And I just realized I didn't take a pic of the super cute cactus totebag she made. SOOOOOO....I need to go do that now! ]]\]

Thank you SO much! Everything is just perfect.

I was so nervous! I'm glad you like everything.

Here is the awesome tote that dharma_rebel made me. I love the retro feel to it!

Hooray! I always get so nervous when sending out.  For reference, here is a picture of what the full grown Century cactus and aloe look like.

This is a 45 year old century cactus. The ones I sent you are from one of my younger ones that I got from this big ole guy.

This is my room mates aloe, it's flowering right now which is super neat. That aloe is a pup from that one.

They get really big if you let them!

Here are all the cards; I put them into a collage:

(The pretty flowers on the cards were sent to me by a friend who kindly gifted me several of her stamps as well.)

The cactus cutout were done with my BigShot.

I want to see what the cactus candy look like and for you to tell us what it tastes like!

They look like Turkish Delights. They are sweet with a fresh taste-if that makes any sense.
