I'm so glad you liked everything!  The shirts look like they fit okay too.  I loved the elephant, I'm glad you think he's cute too. Smiley

I received my box of goodies from VeniceIsSinking today - check out all the great loot!

This is what I saw when I opened the box. I love the cartoon wrapping - too cute!

First up was the goodies inside the cartoon wrapping - custom sweet-tooth postcards! Mmmmmm... I'm hungry for sugary treats now! Grin  Obviously (well, obvious to anyone who knows me), my fave is the donut. And now I know why VeniceIsSinking was asking me about my favorite candy.

And she also drew two beautiful notecards for me. These are gonna be saved for some special occasions. I especially like the bird cage in the tree, very cool idea.

And next up is this adorable tree stuffie.

I'm not sure if this is who Venice intended it to go to, but...

Hey mom, can I have it? Huh? Huh?

Okay, time to get out the Jedi (dog) mind trick. **You will give me the tree.

Thanks, mom - bye!   Grin

Obviously Snort loves the tree, Venice. I didn't have the heart to take it away from her, so I'm pretending you intended it for her.  Cool

And then in the little boxes were some awesome pieces of jewelry! I love, love this necklace with matching earrings. Totally my style, Venice.  Wink  I'm not certain, but it looks like the bird is made of polymer clay? And I think it may be set in an upcycled watch case? Whatever it's made of, it's gorgeous! And the earrings are perfect. I love the kind of antiquey/vintage look they have - they're much cuter in person than my photo shows. (The earrings are shown on this cute little jewelry box on which Venice painted my first initial.)

And then we have a set of friggin' adorable donut stitch markers! These look so yummy - almost too cute to use for knitting! (But you can bet your bottom dollar I will.)   Wink

And what's this? More donut goodness? Be still my (cholesterol-laden) beating heart!
The cutest donut necklace I've ever seen. I'm sure I'll get some weird looks when I wear this, but I don't care, I'm gonna do it with pride. It's so sweet! (get it, sweet...)

And that's not the end to the sweet goodies - Venice also crafted up this adorable cupcake brooch.

And last, but certainly not least, this awesome, spectacular t-shirt! I'm guessing it's a bleach stencil? Whatever it is, I love it to death. It is totally and completely my style, I'm wearing it right now, and my husband likes it, too. That, my friend, is the sign of a great tee.  Cheesy

Thank you so, so much VeniceIsSinking for a terrific swap package. You stalked me so well and crafted even better!  Grin

And thanks to PinkMafia for organizing such a cool swap - this was a great one!

Yay! I'm so excited you (and snort) liked it!

The donut necklace is pretty silly, but I thought you would appreciate it haha. And the donut stitchmarkers were the first things I've ever made out of clay!

The shirt was free-handed with a bleach pen, which is why it bled quite a bit... I thought it looked pretty neat, though.

And yeah, that bird pendant was clay and a watch piece.

You are awesome, lady. Thanks so much!

The necklace/earring set is gorgeous - what a lucky girl!  The shirt looks great, the bleeding looks like it's on purpose and makes it look fantastic!
