So glad you like everything!

This swap has been so much fun! A little panic about the post office, only because that was the last of last year's lavender harvest.

I'm still thinking about the items I made for my partner. I'm loving everything everyone else has made. I'm amazed by all of the craftiness and different perspectives. I finished my partners big project is finally done. I'm currently making sure I have everything and can't wait for my partner to see it. I'll definitely be sending by the send out date. Smiley I wonder what my partner has come up with for me. I know some of the items are a suprise.

I would love to do personal swaps if anyones interested. If your interested please write me!
will you take me to gang practice? yis?

I received an AMAZING #2 package from DesignVigilante on Wednesday! Grin

All the loot together! She carefully wrapped everything and gave me instructions on what to open when, it was great!

"#1 - OPEN FIRST!!! Because you said you didn't have one..." (A flippin' awesome needle roll for my knitting needles!!! Isn't that fabric just perfect?)

Click here for a shot of it opened.

"#2 - OPEN SECOND!!! I hope these are funky enough for you Tongue" (Fabulous handmade knitting needles in some of my favorite color combos! She even painted the sizes on the ends Smiley)

"#3 - OPEN THIRD!!! Custom ordered just for you <3" (Delicious handmade yarn dyed in one of my favorite color combos! So sweet!)

"#4 - OPEN FOURTH!!! Just because you might not have enough..." (Even more yarn!)

"#5 - OPEN FIFTH!!! I saw it and thought of you Smiley" (This is perfectly my style, I love it!)

"6 - OPEN SIXTH!!! To satisfy your candy craving all day long Wink" (I love Nerds!)

"7 - OPEN SEVENTH!!! For the spoiled ones..." (My doggies Smiley These smell good enough to eat!)

"OPEN LAST!!! Just because..." (This is great because it reminds me of our trip last year to San Francisco Smiley)

Thanks DesignVigilante!!! Kiss Kiss Kiss

I got a some shrinkydink like paper for my printer, magnets,earring wires, a postcard from sanfran, markers, a little turtle, two little trees she sculpted a scarf off of my wist and a awesome little rug in green and brown that matches everything in my house but it's going in my craft room because I love love it..

In MaRuts package I love....Everything, especially then needle roll, the yarn, and the notebook.

In doxiemommy's package I love the scarf and the rug.

I love all the talent everyone has.

I am so spoiled it's ridiculous.

I got my second package from doxiemommy and it is amazing. She put waaaay too much in it.

I'm learning to cook and to garden, and she put in an herb garden kit! There's a super sweet planter along with FIVE different things to plant (in teeny pots!) Not only that but she included gardening gloves (I needed these!) AND a garden journal! This is really something I'm going to use!

And, although she says she doesn't know what colors my kitchen is, she made magnets that perfectly match my dishes, lol! I love the star shape, and I put one of my teacups on top of the fridge so you can see how perfect the color is for my kitchen!

She sent MORE delicious biscotti, which I'm really excited about even though it's going to take some serious self control not to inhale them all in one day, especially since I already know how amazing they taste. (Uh, the dog's trying to practice self control with them too...) And on top of the biscotti are the yummiest and freshest smelling soaps ever, along with a fabulous lip balm that will replace the one I accidentally sent through the wash yesterday quite nicely.  Cheesy
AND all of that is on top of a knitting book that has some really adoable patterns in it! I can't wait to try them!

The dog is modeling a kit for knitting some adorable gloves (that are knitted sideways and all in garter stitch, cool!) The yarn is wool and really gorgeous colors!

Finally, is MORE resin pendants! I love these things! Such happy sprinkles! And underneath are bright and lovely bits of fabric! So cute!

Thank you so much doxiemommy! You've made my day again!!

I received my 3rd package from Penlowe and she really outdid herself  Smiley

First, a replacement of the muffin mix that she sent in the first box that exploded.  I can't wait to try it!

Next, a beautiful handcrafted (by a local Texas company) silver bracelet with a 2 peas in a pod charm.  It is so perfect since we were so similar we had a really difficult thinking of items to make for one another  Cheesy  I will totally cherish this!

And last, a wonderful patchwork wrap skirt!  Lovely construction and fun pockets!  Love it!  It fits perfectly!

Pen - if you have a better picture you would like to add, fell free.  It is a nasty day here and obviously my mirror could use a good scrub.

This has been a great swap and I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know my partner.  I have a feeling we will be keeping in touch  Wink
Thanks again Penlowe!
