Then, an amazing handpainted (or stenciled, something like that) pelican tote bag! I actually squealed like a baby pig when I saw this (and that's a compliment). I'm totally in love with this and I think this is gonna be my new library tote. (I'm blown away by how professional this tote looks, bkrenning4, you did an amazing job.)

I am so glad you liked it!  It was an image I found online and stenciled using freezer paper.  Then I handpainted the fence in.  So, you were right both times:  stenciled and handpainted!  Originally, it was going to be a t-shirt, but then I changed my mind and did the tote.  It was really fun to make.  I am going to try to fill some wishes in the next round for stenciled items.

OK, I am finally posting pics. I took them as soon as i got my goodies, but they stayed in my camera forever.
Anyways here goes:

From Frosty772, this beautiful half-apron

From Nofury, a box full of fabric, some shrink plastic, ribbons and other small things

Everything is fantastic, thank you so much ladies.

Ok, several things to say....

Arwena!! Mom received her package today, and she LOVED it! She was so blown away! She said it made her day! She loved the chocolate, will wear the necklace when she goes into town, can't stop smelling the soaps, and says the gloves are just too beautiful to wear! Thanks so much for making such a wonderful package!

Poerava!! Glad you like all the stuff. I really hope it helps to build up your stash!

Mimiw!!! The side of the stamp is blurry!!! What happened??? It looks like it got wet. Was the package damaged? Can you replace the paper?  Undecided  Cry I really like the text/graphic combo you picked. It looks even better there than it did on my screen!

Regarding the stamp, I designed it, but I didn't carve it. Lines are a little TOO fine. It would have been a disaster!!! If anyone would like one, I LOVE doing these. Just put them on your list, and I'll claim them....when I have claims again!
