Heres my lovely package from Uluru!

Wendy, the tropical bird pin cushion! She rocks (literally!)

Gorgeous silver and glass bead birdie earrings

The pin cushion will come in very handy, thanks!! We are about to move and i foresee many nights curtain-making coming my way!

The earrings are both goregous and great for work!

Thanks again uluru, you've been a great swap partner! xx

I just received from noooitaremybirthday, and I love everything! She did a fantastic job, and pegged my taste perfectly. Onto the pictures:

Here are all the goodies together. A pair of arm warmers/fingerless gloves with a sweet embroidered bird applique, a little crow atc, shrinky dink necklace, and a handcarved birdie stamp in a little origami box!

Necklace. Aren't the charms just the sweetest thing? I'm so wearing this to class on monday!

Great little atc! Its my first atc ever, and i serendipitously bought an entire box of frames for .50 at a garage sale today, and one is the perfect size!

Can you believe this stamp? It's so tiny and perfect, and I've wanted my own handcarved stamp for ages! Noo, did you do this by hand?

And finally, the AMAZING and comfy fingerless gloves! I absolutely love them, and can't wait til it gets cold. I'm kind of a glove fiend, but I love to ride my bike everywhere and gloves+bicycle are trouble. These are the perfect solution!  The hand part is a bit big though, any idea if i can shrink them?

Action shot!

Thanks so much, noooitaremybirthday! You totally made my weekend.

Wow!! I'm really enjoying this gallery.  That shrinky dink necklace is really pretty, and the handwarmers are terrific.  I like the "be good" artwork a lot too.  Great job everyone.

Yay! I'm so glad you like it all, Olive Juice! Crud about the hand part of the wristies being too big... I don't think it can be shrunk. sewing a little dart might be a possibility, though... And yep, I just started carving stamps like 2 weeks ago, and it's SO FUN!

Let's swap lil gelli prints or ATCs!

What of you hand sew a little piece of elastic on the inside. Kinda like they do for the insides of hats....

That birdy stamp is so cute, just perfect. I think my next craft might have to be stamp carving. I remember doing it in art class and at an art camp - and all the warnings about not jabbing yourself in the hand with the knife things. It reminds me of the twitter bird a little!
Those arm warmers are so pretty, too. I love the color combination, it reminds me of cotton candy. I like the different blues in it. And the little bird applique totally is the cherry on the cake there. Awesome package!

Not like, LOOOOOVE!!!!

That's exactly what I was thinking! I'm going to experiment. If it doesn't pan out, I'm sure sewing a little dart will work just fine. They are just way too perfect to not get worn!
