Just a few notes  Grin

The mobile is old crappy wire hangers, the pot holder hanger is to hang pot holders on it, the scrap bag is actually a pot holder to go with it.

The purse was actually a shopping bag that was sewn with the fabric to have no bottom seams to allow for heavy cans, I allot certain bags for certain kinds of items. I resewed it and lost a great deal of opening in the top but didn't want to go against the grain of the swap theme and buy fabric to redo it.

Did the dream catcher not make it?

Anyhow, I had fun and am glad you like it.  Cheesy

Wow!! What a great package Piehole.  I love the shopping bag, and the jewelry rack, and the pot holder holder, and the vase, and everything else, too.  It's lovely.  Great job keeping to the swap theme.

I didn't see a dream catcher. I got a cool bag I forgot to photo (paper bag with a cool ad on it) But Ill look again through everything. The small green one is to pretty to become a pot holder. So it will be a scrap bag Wink

A scrap bag it is!

The paper bag was just to keep things from moving around too much. There is a very good chance I need to go look on my beading tray for the dream catcher. It was supposed to be connected to the bud vase.

My husband kept mocking me for making more things but it was all from my stash of things I didn't want to throw away but had no use for. Cheesy

I got my awesome stuff this week from Ecstatic. Hands down an AWESOME swapper.

Here it is in all of its awesomeness<333

These are Awesome Dish scrubbies that are crocheted....One for 6 days of the week. She says to not wash on the 7th day:) I agree

This yummy jam was made with strawberries out of her own Organic garden. Its sooo good on toast.

These are some note cards and envelopes with rad designs. Fashioned out of a calender. I love the little hearts on the notecards

Isnt this a cute set. ITs and eyeglass case a lil clutch type bag and a eyeglass cloth. I love it. And my hubby is using it at night for his glasses

She sent my kitties some love....and they got a whole set of these lil knitted mice and balls. I think they are too cute. ANd the cats went nuts for them.

She used this sierra club bag for wrapping. It was fun going through the pockets finding things.

I looooovee everything. Sorry about the delay in posting pics. I have had a horrible migraine that is starting to go away. I loved this swap sooo much.

I'm glad you liked everything. Smiley Thanks for posting the pics - no problem on the delay, especially with a migraine. Hope you're feeling better.

Psyche - when I donated to Sierra Club, they accidentally sent me two thank you gifts. I figured this was the perfect swap theme for using one of them as wrapping paper.

It's so weird seeing pictures of stuff and going "THOSE MAGNETS ARE ON MY FRIDGE!"

I love everything I received. My cupcake holds all of my hair ties, the altoids tin I keep my bobby pins in, and my hair clips. I'm thinking of theming my bathroom around it. And the bag made its debut grocery shopping tonight.

Thanks so much! As soon as I can figure out how to get pictures off of my phone, I'll post action shots. I get my internet turned on on Tuesday, so hopefully I can post pix then.

Bronzfrog received my package on March 31st, but I guess she's been too busy to post any pictures, so I'll post a few now:

Group of everything, red magazine holder from a cardboard box, a stuffed kitty (from her wist list) made from an old curtain I had (still have tons of fabric left), a sun catcher made from cd's, (kind of dorky, but I made me one too, and I like it outside in the sun), a splat cat hot pad, glass case with a frog closure (the tongue goes around a button), and a frog magnet, all made with yarn from my stash.

close up of the glass case:

I'm going to have to make me one now!

Close up of splat cat the hot pad:

I hope she liked everything, I could never tell................
