I received from crazy_girl, and everything she made me is completely awesome! I have lots of pics:

This is a bag she crocheted, with a cute rat-print fabric inside. On the outside of the bag is a button with a rat stick on top. Cute!

A rat pouch, which I think is also crocheted (I don't know much about crocheting or knitting!).

Rattie hammock! Here is Clark looking a little unsure as I plopped him in it. *lol* They've never had a hammock before. They've taken to it quite nicely now though.

A couple of lovely boxes that crazy_girl thoughtfully made for me to hold my crafted jewelry in. She printed out a couple pictures of my rats (Juju on top, Baal on bottom) and put them on top.

A cute rat-shaped pincushion, already being put to good use. *lol* (I was so excited about everything I didn't think to take pictures of the stuff I got until after I had started using them!)

And to top it all off, some rat treats, which my rats all love (as you can see by Heru-ur's wall-eyed looked of appreciation). Smiley

Thanks again crazy_girl, everything is totally fantastic! I couldn't be happier. Cheesy

Wit beyond measure is man's greatest treasure.

I'm so glad you liked everything!!!  (Grinning happily)

Stats for those interested:  The purse was crochetted in Bernat Satin yarn, single crochet for the base and v-stitch for the flap.  The lining is fabric from a quilt store.   The rat pouch was crochetted in Caron's Simply Soft Quick.  The pin cushion is bought.  The rat treats are actually a dog treat recipe from allrecipe.com.  My rats love anything with peanut butter, so I bought some at the pet store on a whim one day, and they were dragging around and fighting over treats about the same size as them.  As they were impossible to break without resorting to a hammer, I decided to make my own for them.   Cheesy

Me: What if we're on the same page, but in different books?

Those are all so adorable!

Those treats look good -- I'm going to have to try to make some for my rattie.

I received my package from Platinumrexx on Monday, and it's amazing, thank you!  I just haven't had a camera to use to take the pictures.  I'm going home again tomorrow, hopefully my boyfriend will remember to bring his camera this time.   Wink

And I loved doing this swap, it was so fun!
