I recently recieved the balt salts (with instructions on how to make more  Grin) and soap and my tote bag (currently in use). I was able to take two pictures before the batteries in the camera decided to die.

I received all of my items a while ago - last week was a total bear, so I am just getting around to posting . . .

Let's see . . .
There is the perfectly sized swap journal from Mlsocci74 which has already helped me organize all my craftster PM's
The fabulous passport cover from foolily, which I am planning on using in six weeks!
The cute owl from SewingLori, which, despite being called a pincushion is currently being used by my (18 month old) son as a ball.
The adorable mini journal from PenGwend, which I'm planning to use to write haiku, but haven't actually started.
And the wonderful eye pillow from stacysews, though it is also getting more use as a ball/thing to throw off the bed because it makes a cool noise when it hits the floor.

Thank you all, everything is wonderful!

[the picture isn't showing up because my site is down. .. i hope to get that fixed soon!]

Yay!  I received my second time around yarn from javastain!  Thank you SO much!  I've not had angora or mohair before so I'm looking forward to using them!  And I love the cotton too, I already have plans for it.  Wink

I all of a sudden wish I had been one of the recipients of some of that yarn...  Mohair, angora and cotton...*paws wishfully at the computer screen while whimpering*  I'd love to see what you do with all that Avesthel!  Dying?  Crocheting?  Weaving?  Knitting?  Felting?  The possibilities are endless!

Definitely some crocheting in the near future.  Smiley  I'm not quite sure yet though for the mohair and angora... but I have a plan for that cotton.  Wink 

I've never felted or dyed yarn before.  I might try making a felted cozy of some sort for some of it.  Maybe some wrist warmers or scarf out of the mohair?

I got my yarn from javastain too! I didn't get a picture last night, but it was equally awesome.  I got some of the same Angora and cotton it looks like.  And I also got a natural colored wool/nylon blend.

I have two photos to share.  I have received the most gorgeous yarn from bitibis, a super cute purse set from funthreads, a fabric yarn ball (can't wait to use this!) and a great rose bookmark (in use already) from Eliea, and a fabric pouch from CraftyCarrie that looks so good with my purse Smiley

Mmmm yarnnnnn
I didn't ask for mohair/angora but maybe I'll get some alpaca?

I also received SewingLori's owl pincushion yesterday! It's definitely bigger than I thought, and I love that you used pink for its body Smiley
Will post pics when I get the rest of my packages (3 to go!)

I received my package from java, so I'm at 5/5, and I actually uploaded my pics, so here they are:

First, my chainmaille keychain from Avesthel, my donuts from ktlady, and my lovely roving from raynbow:

And the pug knitting needles from AvianFlight, and my angora yarn from javastain:

Thanks everyone! I love it all!  I'm glad there are better pics of everything in the gallery, already, though, because mine don't do the items justice.  They really are wonderful!  Smiley



Where did all this fabric come from? I CAN'T have bought THAT much!
