I just want to thank Smittenheart for the amazing goodies she sent me!  Unfortunately, I've been pretty MIA on here..  I've been having major computer issues, but I was able to get on the comp here at the college tonight.  I can't thank you enough for all the fabulous goodies you sent me Smittenheart, and also for posting pics on here for me.  And, Ransom, I'm really glad that you liked everything, too!  I wish I could have made much more for you but with everything as hectic as it all so suddently and unexpectedly got I didn't have the chance.  I hope I made enough for you though and that you're truly happy with it all!

the embroidery on the pillow is beautiful! was that done on a machine or by hand?

And by the way.. it was done by hand.  Thanks for the sweets comment, everybody!

I just got my package from PenGwend!!!! I just got back from a road trip i started at 6 am (got back at 1130pm) but i couldnt wait to post because everything was so beautiful!! ill try not to go picture crazy, but i want to show everything off!! She made me just what I needed from my questionnaire. Prepare yourselves…

Everything was packaged “green”ly in reusable supersoft fabric:

The whole lot:

Cute little cupcake treats in a BR container! (what are these made of? they smell good!):

One of my favorites! Crocheted ice cream and cupcake!! I think ill attach a little ring to the cupcake to make it into a ring pincushion:

Cute cupcake notes with envelopes, note the metallic cherries!:

I needed a way to store my recipes, so she made a great cover for this album to keep the recipes clean while cooking! Such a great idea!! And so well done!:

She made me a beautiful skirt out of 100% bamboo fabric!!!

Note the incredibly cute touch of the cupcake/ice cream flannel pockets!

Thank you soooooo much PenGwend, I loved all of it!!!

My partner noxluff received a while back so I'm gonna go ahead and post pics of what I sent Smiley

Three coathangers I bought at Michael's and painted for her based on this from her Wists. I made her extras because I love doing multiple items while alternating the color palette around (please excuse the glare, I used some glossy paints Smiley):

A canvas bag decorated with glittery cupcake iron-ons:

I knit this purse, added a matching zipper and added this little cupcake applique I made from felt, embroidery floss and a little vintage flower cabochon I bought on Etsy (it was based on this from her Wists):

A necklace (based on this from her Wists) and a pin (based on this from her Wists), both made of shrinkys. On the pin I added a little white paint to make it more opaque, kind of wishing I did on the necklace too now:

Recipe cards (based on these from her Wists) that I redesigned in Illustrator and printed on 100 lb. cardstock:

A cupcake coin purse, which was a cute little extra I purchased:

I also made a resin charm with star-shaped sprinkles, but didn't get a pic of it. Hope you like everything, noxluff! I had a blast Grin Grin Grin

I'm not happy, I'm cheerful. There's a difference.

I'm so glad you liked everything Flip Flop!  But most of all, I'm ecstatic that the cupcake goodies made it there in a non-liquid form.  They're cupcake mixed with buttercream frosting on the inside, and the outside is chocolate!  I poured milk chocolate into a candy mould, squished in a ball of cupcake/frosting "dough" and then dipped the top in pink chocolate for the frosting.  Smiley

I got my package from JadeGreen last night!!

Oh Jade, I love my stuff so much!  Funny that we both decided to make each other aprons!

Anyway, hopefully I'll get some photos taken this evening after work, if not I'll post them tomorrow. Smiley

I'm so glad that you liked your things. You sent me such an amazing package that I have been super nervous waiting for you to recieve worrying you'd think you had been jibbed when you got your stuff.

I know, I thought that aswell when I saw I had an apron too! haha. I think your sewing skills kind of kick the arse out of mine though.
