I receieved a fabulous package from phizzychick...the stuff is awesome as ever...she is amazing,

prepare to be very jealous!
first out of the package was this incredible piece of artwork, I love phizzy's work, but this is just wonderful, I adore it beyond measure

then there is this brilliant set of cards, I always need blank cards and  these are great, plus some glitter...i adore glitter and some heart shaped cardboard blanks, these will be so useful as they are so much more regular than I could possibly cut, there is also a very cut broach (is that how you spell it?) with feathers...In the middle of this picture is the craft kit and it is brilliant, it is an inchy making kit...inchies are my new obsession, teeny tiny pieces of art work, Phizzy send me blanks and papers and embellisments but also she hand made a little book of instructions, which is so cute and (as ever) very well done
this is a close up of the book

she also sent me this wonderful little dotee doll (I love the word dotee btw, in ireland as a term of endearment we use the word dote...like that child is such a dote, it means cute and sweet) I have her hanging in my kitchen above the cooker as a little kitchen goddess.

and then the most wonderful book came to light. An altered book started by Phizzy with plenty of pages for me to add to. I think I might make this a travelling book. What I love is that it is in Irish! here are a few pages.

thank you so much Phizzychick, for being such an amazing partner.

I love personal swaps,  I print a lot of random fabric, usually with no purpose in mind.  let me know if you want any of it.

I finally took pics of my wonderful package I received from Kartiana.  I could not find my battery charger for my camera, so I was visiting my parents this weekend and i used their camera.

Here is the items that are kartianas favs, She is a pre-school teacher and she loves Japanese food.  In addition to what is in the picture are some beautiful chopsticks that I used and left at home.  Kartiana included a oragami kit and some paper, I have been wanting to try Oragami.  There are some cute charms that say Peace, I love them.  The Apple A+ stamp along with a Crayola fridge pad that I will use for my grocery list. Also some adorable earrings in my colors:

And my favorite, a Apron with a ruffle bottom and a pocket in the yummiest fabric:

Thankyou Kartiana, you are a great swap partner!!!

Hey everyone! ^_^
I am such a slow poke when it comes to posting pics. I was given another fantastic package from DV! She is an amazing crafter (and the fastest crocheter i have ever met!!). I have had tons of fun talking to you, crafting surprises, and laughing as the 4 of us hung out. Thank you so much for being so wonderful! *HUGS*

Now, on to the package:
First of all, I didn't get a box this time. Instead it was in a redecoraged travel case! So adorable!!

Inside: Oh yeah! Stuffed with goodies~

Sodoku book, travel checklist, pack of photo paper, journal, and adorable set of cards!

A ton of circulars  Cheesy

A blue and brown knitted bag, with beautiful stitching

A water bottle carrier (complete with vitamin water), and the flowers are for the vents in my car

I also recieved 3 cute hats, and an eye mask (All modeled by my little sister) Even though they are meant for me, I just couldnt resist taking pics of her  Cheesy

I covet the soap making kit and the soaps...

« Reply #168 on: April 01, 2009 09:52:15 PM »

I really like the decorated travel case.  I have at least two suitcases that I need to finish redecorating before I move.  The soapmaking kit is wonderful too and I like the inchie one too.  The aprons are both adorable! 

I can't wait to see more packages!

Looking for postcards from anywhere to use for RSVP cards for my 8/2012 wedding.  Have 80/200.

Everyone's packages have been awesome!

I should have posted these pictures sooner, but my folks are visiting and I have a terrible cold! Boo! One item that my partner edelC sent is very much in use at the moment!! Hankies! Cheesy

The whole package! Bits that don't have individual photo's are the book of nursery rhymes, yarns, mini magazine envelopes, crochet circle, Moon incense and leaf tea! I was spoiled!

A bag, but no ordinary bag...

A picnic bag, complete with pocket & napkin!

Painted tree pillow cases for my bed! I love the little heart leaves!

Awesome crochet kit (shown rolled up in that first picture)

I have no excuse now! Cheesy

And the fantastic cotton handkerchiefs! I love using these rather than the paper tissues, and these are so fun! My nose thanks you!

Thank you so much for all of your packages Edel, you have been a fantastic partner and I have really enjoyed getting to know you!
