HOLD UP THE GALLERY!  More is coming!

YAY!  I received from Clairol5 today!
This package came over 6,000 miles from the UK to California....and survived the trip well.
I can only hope to hear that my package to the UK made it in the same condition.
Well, here is what Clairol5 sent me....all of the great goodies.
Sorry for the dark pics---it's getting dark so early here now

The package has arrived!

All the goods!!

Check out the uber-cool button gift wrap!  WOW!
The notebook has handmade paper sheets inside.  I will be using it for sketches.

Awesome knitted pouch with lavender sachet holder inside.

Nifty buttons with a handmade custom PUG button

And the very cool knitted button-adorned pin and hair clip

Thank you so much Clairol5--I LOVE everything and now have more button craftiness to adore!

Glad you liked everything MissNewEngland.
Sorry for the delay posting these pictures. Apparently a bit of sunlight is too much to ask for and it's been cloudy and miserable for the last few days. However this morning I woke up to beautiful sunshine so I grabbed my camera!

Everything together (including a lovely selection of American sweets, some of which had already dissapeared by the time I'd taken the photos!):

Close up of two painted wooden bracelets:

I love this necklace!

Button earrings which are lovely on:

and all the buttons in a knitted pouch! The marbled ones are handmade (!) and there is also a button magnet:

This was a really thoughtful package, thank you again MissNewEngland!

So, here is the beautiful package I received from Mqorty!

The button collection:

I can't decide which ones are my favourites... I totally love the tiny ones!

A super-pretty necklace (I've always wanted one of these!)

Button earstuds I immediately started wearing (my mother made a funny noise when she saw them, they are so cute!)

And a cute litte pouch!

Thank you so much, I totally love the package! And now I hope even more that you'll like what I made for you... *nervous*

Hi everyone! any new news on the ones who are still waiting to receive?


Exodus 35:35 (NIV)~ He has filled them with skill to do all kinds of work as engravers, designers, embroiderers in blue, purple, and scarlet yarn and fine linen, and weavers - all of them skilled workers and designers

Actually Mqorty is still waiting for my package, and I suggested that we wait another week and if it doesn't arrive by then I'll recraft everything as quickly as possible... :/

I shipped overseas and am still waiting for Snaps to get her package too. I'm a tad disappointed actually, the postal service was pretty good with my last couple of swaps so I was hoping this would be nice and quick too.

She Fedexed hers to me, which is why I got it relatively quickly Cheesy Here's my lovely stuff:

Microwave warming bag in cute buttony fabric. The fabric is wicked, and with energy prices currently through the roof, should be very useful this winter!


Buttony bag! Very very cute.

Button hairbands, embellished and embroidered. I love these, they are perfect for wearing to work (retail - I can wear my hair down, but it's nice to keep it off my face) and so, so pretty!

Action shot, modelled by my boyfriend. They suit me better Cheesy

My buttons, and their groovy tin! I think there are a couple of those li'l purple buttons missing... can't think why. There are some really interesting buttons there and some super pretties too! The close-ups didn't come out *pouts* but two of them have black lace embedded in them - yummy - and there's the prettiest carved and painted shell button with flowers on too! The big metal ones have some sort of crest on - I don't know what it is but it vaguely resembles the Imperial Russian flag my boyfriend's flatmates used to have on their wall.

Thankyou Snaps, everything is soo lovely! Cheesy

I am glad that you liked everything! it was fun to make. and i hope mine gets here soon, the mail to my house sometimes feels like  black hole, it just gets sucked in and it takes for ever to get here!

Pay no attention to me dancing with my girl, we have every intention of being failures in this world.

Hey guys!
All of the stuff everyone got was so good! I FINALLY got my package today! (Thanks to NZ post, they took forever sorry!! >.>)
Sinje (MightyMouse) sent me the best package ever!
I got:

The coolest bag! It's so amazing and perfect, I love it to bits  Cheesy


And here's a picture of how squished the package got! The wrapping paper was so cute! (with the return address blurred of course)

Thank you so much Sinje! Your package was perfect!

Phew, big relief here! I was really afraid that a) the package might get lost and b) you wouldn't like the purse, so now I am a happy Mouse Cheesy
