As promised, here are the pics of the great stuff MareMare sent me.


Sewing Notion Organizer/Holder, a fun kitty craft to make, and an HK washcloth made by another Craftster.

An awesome wall organizer that will be going up in my craft room tomorrow


Store bought scrubbie and really cool magnents

Each girl got turtle soaps, a turtle cloth, and a necklace.  The soaps and cloth was the only way to bribe Athena into the bath tonight  Cheesy

(Athena is trying to grab the necklace)

and Troy got the cutest onesie.

It was really sweet of her to wrap the things up for the kids so they could open them.  It made their day.

1950's Houswife stuff:
Coolest Apron ever (pardon my post partum yucky fat)

I love these magnents!


really awesome gift bags, a cupcake book I have been lusting for, and some cute appliques

I am so excited to use these stitch markers!

they are perfect and I am in awe of her skill with clay.

Soaps straight from my wists and bath fizzes that even came in a bakery container. Cheesy

Going Green:

Really yummy lip balms

Crochet market bag with a DIY laundry soap kit.  I cannot wait to try this out! and she added in a great cotton weave scarf made by another craftster

and a Soapgasm!!!  I knew I was getting some soaps but holy cow I was spoiled!!  The turlte soaps and cupcake soaps and then ALL THESE!

there were even really fun monkey soaps for my girls.

Thank you so much MareMare!!  I love everything so much and feel so spoiled.  I might have to send you some extra goodies.  This was such a great package and I love that you included things for my kiddos and some great stuff for me.  You are an awesome partner!!

Yay, I am so glad you liked everything! I was worried I hadn't made enough stuff for the kids, I am used to boys so was trying to figure out what to make for girls! I was going to make them each an apron with the cupcake appliques on them, but then I got different cupcake ideas and was reading about Alex being a tomboy, so I just sent the appliques. The cupcake stitch markers are maybe my 3rd clay project, and that idea was straight off of a tutorial by organizer cupcakeaccessories! And those things are tough, I accidentally dropped them on the kitchen floor when I was packing everything up, and they didn't break. Oh and the butterfly cards I got in a sweat shoppe swap, didn't make those Grin

You'll have to tell me when you make the laundry soap, it ends up being so incredibly cheap to make (well even cheaper if you use unscented uncolored handmade soap, but I was out) but I love how little you have to use, and you can keep re-using the same detergent container, and I swear it's better than store bought.

Such fantastic stuff! I love the gallery, everything is so great! I couldn't choose a favorite, there's so many things I love.

Get your Wistin' fingers ready!!!
After begging a family member to go sign for it at the P.O. (I work a long commute from home and am never in town during business hours), I have received Lunanne's lovely package all the way from Canada! It was in a huuuuge box that weighed ten pounds, wowsa Shocked This lady rocks, be prepared for the awesomeness!

First, everything together, very neatly wrapped and labeled by theme Grin

Frida Kahlo / Day of the Dead / Mexicana
Even though this theme wasn't really her style, Lunanne totally rocked it and made some amazing goodies!

Spooky skeleton bag (huge!), book constructed of envelopes and little pockets (awesome!), handpainted sugar skull plaque (gorgeous!), collage sugar skulls triptych (lovely!) and a saint key ring (perfect!):

The book was filled with Frida tags! Love, love, love:

Up-close shots: sugar skull plaque, sugar skulls triptych and key ring

Cats & Dogs
Holy cow, did I ever get spoiled on this theme! She sent me such a crazy amount of goodies for this one Grin

First, all the lovely paper items, including a kitty bag, handcrafted notes and ideas book, special occasion cards, thank you cards, gift tags, notepad, stickies and three really nice pens in black, green and blue:

On all the paper items, she used the most precious little cat, dog and paw print stamps in a lovely earthy brownish-red color Smiley Can you believe this was her first time making a book? It's PERFECT!

EVEN MORE cat and dog goodies! I have four cats and two dogs, and she made them tons and tons of toys Grin Too sweet!

Initial catnip felt toys (!!!). They are so darling! There's P for Petra, P for Pearl, O for Orange and C for Callie Grin (Callie already drooled all over hers Cheesy) Lunanne also made them a little fishy apiece and each a stringy fabric toy:

For the doggies, Rocky and Boots (they are getting famous on here Cheesy), she made a slew of cute felt toys! Tree limbs, pretty braided ones and even some shaped like bones, I love it!

I loved all the goodies wrapped up together for this theme Grin If I read her letter correctly, she stained and tiled the two larger frames herself, wow! They are absolutely perfect! She also included a magnetic frame and made an accordian-style photoholder, love!

Just like in the Cats & Dogs theme, Lunanne spoiled me here as well! Two bulging packages Shocked

Here's the first -- a lovely brown and pink apron with removable pin (favorite color combo EVER), handsewn gnome that rocks, lovely necklace she made, a pretty stamped bookmark, plant markers complete with a set of Sharpies, gardening gloves, and a mini wooden birdhouse Grin:

She even came up with a name for my new gnome: Gunter Grin

MORE gardening goodies! Lovely windchimes (big and beautiful!) and a perfect little rain gauge Grin

Retro Housewife
Kind of a vague theme, but Lunane totally got it! She sent a hilariously cute spatula fridge magnet, a super girly bracelet (every lady needs pearls!), some AMAZING embroidered towels (!!!) and a rockin' full apron:

She did such an amazing job on the embroidery!

Up-close shots: bracelet and apron fabric

Jar of Whimsies
She introduced me to this idea and I just loved it! We talked about it for a while, then the Jar of Whimsies Swap started but neither of us could join in time. So what does Lunanne do? Come up with most brilliant idea ever for us to make one for each other, chock full of goodies related to our themes and likes! She rocks Grin Here's what she sent me, it was PACKED FULL:

Not to ruin any surprises, but it looks like Lunanne and I had some similar ideas Cheesy

Thanks so much for the incredibly awesome package, Lunanne!!!
