I recieved an incredible package this week from elvissa! She totally spoiled me and my kiddos!

She made me a matching apron...and I need to get photos of that on me. Maybe hubby will take pics for me!
Here are the kids in the fab. shirt and dress! The fabric is so amazing! I love the blue background with the candy all over it! It's sparkly too!  Grin

This one shows her excitement right after opening the package!

SHe loved it so much...

...that I couldn't take it off her & she slept in it!

I feel so lucky & blessed! Thank you Elvissa for everything!!!

(also wanted to mention in the last photo...the pink kitty was from a personal swap with ritapizza last year...and she loves it right to pieces still!)

Lindyv321 and I did an Alphabet themed inchies exchange and this is the set she sent me.  The first 4 across are random ones to square out the set and A starts with Autumn.

Thank you, Lindy!


I find joy in creating and helping others create not just jewelry and crafts but best of all, the life they want.

IdlersDesign and I did a mini-swap of sorts. Neither of us had very big items to offer. It was still quite awesome. This was my first time doing a swap, be it personal or organized, but I am definitely going to participate in more!

She had posted up pictures of these awesome moss pendants saying she would be willing to swap them and I just had to jump on the opportunity. It is really neat!

She also sent a couple of extra little goodies. This little zipper pouch is very cool. I have never actually seen one this shape...but I love it! Note the two little ants on that side. Cute!

When I saw this little stamp I just about died. I love love LOVE it! It has also inspired me to give stamp carving a shot.

Thanks so much to IdlersDesign!!

I received the most awesome knit socks from DesignVigilante.  She made these from my handspun yarn and I think they are beautiful.  I can't wait for hubby to open them on Christmas!

Thank you DV!!

Slingmomma and I had a personal swap happening.  I was her sender for the Fill a Box Canadian style swap and she like the stencilled T's I sent her, so she asked if I could do some Handy Manny ones for her.  I stencilled a T and hoodie for her son, and sent her a bunch of other stuff too.  I just received her package the other day.  MIL requested a cushion cover for a cushion she has on top of a big chest she has in the front hall.  I have no place  to sew right now, and my sewing isn't that great anyways, so I asked Slingmomma to make one for me.  She did and sent a bunch of other stuff for me too:

The striped item on the back of the chair is the cushion cover - the stripes are a nice velvety texture, I think she will quite like it.

Some lovely lavender soaps; she made two herself.

Some decorated glass pendents - the green one says "time" - funny because I keep asking for people to give me time for Christmas Cheesy

A dog poop bag holder - fits perfectly onto the clasp that is all that is left of the last plastic one I had, after Ginger and Toby broke it off somehow one day.  Finally, I can reach into my pocket and not pull out a handful of baggies before reaching my gloves!

Somevery pretty stitch markers, perfect for crochet

Some fudge - wonder if DH sniffed that out yet

Finally a cute stocking ornament already in it's new home Cheesy

There were a few other items too - a scented votive, and bamboo tiles for me to craft with, knitting needles, and eyelash yarn from Jysk - I never even knew Jysk had crafty stuff, I always presumed they just sold furniture!

Thanks Slingmomma!

So glad you like everything!  Please let me know when you have the baby!  I've been wondering if baby is a boy or girl.  Smiley
