Alrighty, heres the pics of the lovely parcel I received from elowezil...

everything together...


lovely card for me


gorgeous chandelier earrings!


notebook - inside cover is super cute too. - and i didn't even tell you about my secret shame of making lists! I have lists of randomness all over the apartment, my boyfriend will be pleased that now they can be somewhat contained! and in style!



and the gorgeous package in the 1st pic (with the super cute magnetic closure) held these amazing cards!


sorry the pic is slightly strange in colour.
thought about taking pics of all of them close-up but thought that would make for the longest post in history, but believe me they are amazing... and close-ups of my faves!...



in love with the lanterns! and the knitting! oh and the birdcage card - forgot to take a close-up of that one, but it will also be on display on my bookshelf.

a-mazing   Shocked
So nice receiving handmade gifts, and great timing as we're having sick puppy dog troubles so it was a nice sunny spot in the day.

i am sorry for being a bad, rude swapper. i am sorry to all the partners i flaked on, and all the feelings i hurt. i feel really guilty, my life is messed up right now and i got greedy and selfish. i didnt think about anything but getting nice things. i am so sorry everyone. i'll be leaving now.

I had huge issues with the horns. I cried over them in fact. I messed up and made them smaller than the clips  Roll Eyes spent 3days hand sewing sequins on (I only get a wee bit of time each day to craft cos of work and pets) and then to discover that they were too small  Cry then I came up with the brainstorm to add faux feathers  Grin which I think makes them even better.
The canvas was... interesting. I found the image on your wist and then recreated it and painted it. lol. Im lucky that my future stepMIL loves to craft and send me home with bits and bobs everynow and then. She had brought a pack of premade canvases but didnt need/like the smaller ones (she makes quilts and stitches them to the canvas when shes done) so she gave them to me. I tried so many different things with the bunny. Mostly sewing, I just couldnt get it so I was happy. Then I came across the canvases in my cupboard and again, my brain had an idea and it worked  Grin Glad you liked it all

Awww I feel your pain, all that work and the you realise it's just not going to work... but it did! So yay Cheesy  lol
When I started knitting again there were a few things I tried, and it's just so gutting when you realise you've done it wrong and it is just not savable Sad



Anyway here is a teaser for you lassy

Any guesses?  It's actually 2 things Wink  I just put them in one picture Cheesy

Oh for everyone who doesnt know how much of an idiot I am (truly I am a dork) I thought we had to have it sent by today (the 12th) Roll Eyes so thats why I sent it yesterday Grin well, at least it makes a change from me being late (I get told now to be at a certain place an hour or half an hour sooner  Roll Eyes I leave everything to the last minute then freak out) now to look at pic and see if I can guess... hmmmmm
