Here are the things I sent to Silly.  Her themes were architecture, ecology, cobblestone and ye-ye.

I sent her a lined tote bag with a stenciled cityscape on one side and a tree on the other. (Used the ecology and architecture themes)

I also sent 2 frames for photos.  My brother helped me out by taking some incredible cobblestone photos around historic Charleston.  Unfortunately, I only have these 2 but there were 6 or 8 total.  These use the cobblestone and ecology themes and the cobblestone and architecture themes.

Yeeehaaww!!!!! I received from brideOFkniterstein today.
first here is a picture of the princess washclothes i sent to her.

My themes were: dukes of hazzard, snowmen, koalas, and native American.
here is all my goodies together.  Smiley  Grin
a mug in my favorite color, purple, with a snowman inside a general lee.

A secret stash book with koalas on the front, an orange spine that says the duke boys, and a snowman chillin' out inside.
a close up of the snowman dreamcatcher.
a daisy duke apron with snowmen down the sides.

Last but not least a musical snowman who plays frosty the snowman. If you look close his cheeks are lite up and his sign also lights up, but i only got the cheeks in the picture, and his feet move as well when it is played.

I love everything, Grin Cheesy Smiley, now to keep the stuff away from my son so i can keep it. He loves to take my stuff. LOL. Thanks for everything.

Does it look like your butt's on backwards when you wear the Daisy Duke apron? If so, that's awesome. Looks like you recieved a very thoughtful package, those were some hard themes to combine i bet.

They call me a redneck, and I reckon that I am

Hey, I just wanted to say that I absolutely love the package murbeck sent me.  I'm so glad she posted photos so you could see the great things she made.  I just moved, and I don't know where my camera is yet (still having trouble finding socks in the morning, actually).  How about that bike chain bag strap?  Is that fantastic, or what?  Smiley  Thank you so much, murbeck!

I'm so grateful for your enthusiasm!!!  I had such swap anxiety on this one  Smiley  We were a great threesome though!  Wink

As for the other packages that have been posted since Friday- WOW!!!!  LOVE that mermaid tote with the coffee cup, so cute!  Adorable daisy duke apron (VERY CREATIVE, BOK), Amazing photos, wicked hat... everyone here is so creative!!

Great photos, mimiw!

That snowman dreamcatcher is really creative, brideOFkniterstien!

razberryjam, what kind of glue did you use on those coffee beans in the great unicorn painting? I want to glue some coffee beans onto a project and am not sure what glue to use....

I received my package today from ptarmic wumpus. My themes were: Dragons, candy, nature, and textiles

The whole shebang

I got an awesome dragon collage out of candy wrappers, three fabric origami dragons, and a underwater(nature) vest out of some groovy material.

My favourite piece(s)

Close up of vest

It fits well enough. But my daughter will probably end up stealing it. I think it would make a lovely piece of art myself.

Thank you ptarmic wumpus!!!!
Wasn't weird at all, or at least weird in a fashion I approve of.


We are pretty, we are smart, we've got crafting in the heart.

Here are the pictures like Sera mentioned.  Her themes were saxophones, birds, bananas, and lime green jell-O.

First an embroidered totebag.  I created the pattern myself, thought it was pretty cool.

A close-up on the embroidery.

Its hard to tell, but I made green "jell-O" and placed it in a cup inside a birdcage.  The "jell-O" is gel wax that I dyed.

Close-up of the "jell-O".  I told Sera that the clear wrap was just there to hold it in place during shipping so she can remove it if she wants.

And probably the funniest thing, a banana bird. 

A better pic of his face.  He also squeaks like a bird.  I unfortunately had to take apart a squeaking bird I found at JoAnns for the voicebox, but its a funny addition.

I also sent her a canister painted with a white dove on top and ivies with a box of lime green jell-O inside.  Found the canister at the thrift store, wanted to paint over it but I couldn't get myself to do it.  Thought was awesome on its own. 

Glad to hear you liked everything, Sera unravled!
