I think I might be first to recieve!  I got a whole bunch of cool stuff from Avian Flight, our groovy organizer!  Unfortunately the camera battery died on Friday so no pics for a bit, will try to post ASAP!

I got:
an adorable crocheted grey owl (who came along with some cheery ribbon roses), a wondeful soft golden fleece owl plushie, 3 soft little pompom owls, a crocheted owl motif, an owl pincushion (loved the glitter felt) along with some shrinky pins, a crocheted chibi totoro from my wists, a tiny and kawaii pompom soot sprite, a really cute teddy bear notebook which may become my new swap journal, and a fabulous owl wallet..  Eula, however did you manage to sew that clear pocket!  it's so small too.  so it will fit perfectly in my pocket!!!  totally wowed!  oh yeah and she also sent me a nifty little brocade change purse, some strawberry pocky.. which i already tore into... mmmmmm pocky, so tasty...  and she was also kind enough to pick up some paper i'd been totally lusting after at pearl river!  whee!  like xmas, only not...  Tongue

THANK YOU!!! ever so much!!!
I love it all, it's mine, all mine, no sharing with the kitties =P

anyhow.  as soon as I can, pics will be posted!!

I received from Samsara and everything is AMAZING  Shocked

I got home so late last night and was not able to take pictures, but I will as soon as I get home from work.

I got a crocheted purse with the cutest owl applique. THE DETAIL... oh my.
I got 2 great necklaces. They are both beautiful.
A hand painted scarf that has exactly what I think owls should look like.
A stuffed owl that I WILL NOT use as a pincushion. He is way too cute.

Anyway, sorry to leave you all in suspense. Pics will be up by tomorrow morning. I PROMISE! Unless Ginny, you have some.

Sorry for the photo delay. Everything that Samsara has sent already has a home. You'll be amazed at the great gifts I received. Got your Wist button ready??

A window cling... I have no idea what this is made of, but it is great and it is now hanging on the mirror by my sewing machine.

A little stuffed owl. He'd be a great pincushion if he wasn't so damn cute!

Hand painted scarf. I wish you all could see this in person. It is amazing and I am pretty sure it is made out of magic paint!!

Necklaces and keychains. Sorry this photo is so bad. I cannot photograph white anything. Boooo! (samsara, if you have a better photo, please share).
The pendant necklace is an owl image adhesed to a game tile. The middle one has the cutest little owl button in the center and it is on felt. The keyring is shrinkydink (did you color on both sides?) and it looks 3D.

AND THIS AMAZING  Shocked  BAG!!!!! She made up the pattern for it. It is so cool and is now my purse. The owl is appliqued felt. The detail is unbelievable.

Thanks Thanks Thanks for EVERYTHING!  Kiss I hope my package arrives to you safely and that you like what I made for you. I only took pictures of one of the things I sent you, just so you know.

Thanks Again. I LOVE IT!

Ok everyone, technically I received yesterday but I was busy getting the money back that an atm stole from me so I couldn't post. But let me tell you, this package totally made my day!!

Meshell - Thank you so so so much!

First off, a swap note along with some extra little odds and ends.

Some owl note cards, which is so great because I love collecting note cards so I have them when an occasion arises!

A beautiful owl print - I really love this and the orange is just so nice and bright. I'm going to frame it for my "art wall".

And lastly, this beautiful, wonderful owl tote and zippered pouch. I love love love these sooooo much! Before I left home yesterday I filled the tote with everything I was hauling around for the day and believe me it made it through awesomely - even with the crazy snow falling!

The pouch is so perfect because I was just about to buy something to store all my receipts and paper bits in!

Anyways, awesome, awesome swap - Meshell thank you so much and Avian Flight thanks for organizing everything!

Oh man that window cling look so cool. Samsara, is it that sorta sticky, feels like gel kinda thing? If it is, how in the world do you make those?!

I love those notecards Meshell!
