My partner, MissCrafty29, received today! Since she is on dial up, I offered to post pictures for her, so here are the goodies she received from me. Smiley Sorry for the heap of pictures, I've got to remember to take "group pics" next time!

First up, some small odds and ends, which were all in the pockets of the bag I made for her...

Three different kinds of my homemade Lip Blam!

A cucumber avacado soap (with the leaf detail) a citrus glycerin soap (with a little fish inside) and two racecar soaps for her hubby! I think they were citrus as well, I can't remember offhand.... I also included some Nascar magnets for her hubby, which didn't make it into a picture.

A little polymer clay mushroom charm

Pinback buttons! I love buttons. I also love owning a button machine. Wink

Scrabble tile pendants: tie dye, the Monkees, a LIFE magazine photo from a war protest, and Rocky Horror.

A headband/dread wrap - I've never made anything with elastic before so I hope it's sturdy!

A resin keychain

A tea wallet Smiley

The bag everything was in:

And my absolute favourite, a dress for her daughter!



I made it a bit large to be safe, so hopefully it will fit her at some point. Wink I want to make one that fits me now, hahaha. I think I have enough fabric left over!

I had a blast crafting for you, MissCrafty29! Cheesy

Holy cow - everything is amazing, fluffypants!  Nice job!  I'm also very envious of your button machine. Smiley

Oh wow, that's a fantastic package!  I love that bag, and the dress is just too cute!  I've been wanting to learn resin casting and your creations make me more determined than ever to get off my rear and buy the supplies ... or should I get a button machine?  Oh, and I love your "Fluff's Stuff" labels!  Clever!

Oh My Sweetness.

After the looooooongest day of my life at work, I came home to the most awesome box ever from Casey1201:

Okay, the outside was pretty normal-boxy.  But I knew the inside would hold such delights!  I could not WAIT to get into it!  In fact, my excitement sparked the interest of my kitten, John Rawls. 

Particularly when I fell in LOVE instantly with my new weekender!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  (Please understand, as Casey1201 did, I have been wanting one of these FOREVER!!!!)

John Rawls decided, however, that HE was in love with my new weekender:

The *only* shot of me you'll get is with one of the pairs of earrings she made me - look how well they go with my brand new nose ring!  (please excuse how my nose is all read around it - I mean, I got it pierced 2 nights ago, so Im cleaning it constantly, so then it gets all reddish)

Okay, so here is the loot (other than the weekender bag and the earrings you've already seen!):

A loaded charm bracelet (Ive always wanted one!) to go with the earrings you've already seen and another pair -

(you can see again how much my cat wanted to be involved!)

If you can believe it, Casey classified the bracelet and both pairs of earrings as a SMALL!  Silly Casey!  Much like how my weekender bag was a Large (whereas I am confident that the time she put in on it could have counted as the small, medium, AND large!)

Then we have our Medium.  I say Medium because Casey said so.  Casey needs to do some SERIOUS work on her comprehension of sizes for swaps.  I however have benefitted, so far be for me to complain!  Cheesy   Wink  A sewing kit:

But thats not all!  In addition to the supercute kit, it came FULLY loaded!!

Two patterns for purses (yay!!) and a Sewing for Dummies book (PERFECT FOR ME!!!)

Awesome, awesome fabric!

A whole host of sewing necessities - awesome scissors, Fray Check, rick rack, elastic, Heat and Bond, 3 zippers, and straight pins (which were in the pic above)  There were also safety pins and a measuring tape, but my husband was using those to distract the cat.

By the time I got around to opening the jar of buttons, I had his attention again...

Here are some of my faves -

That's right, that's a pineapple!  There were several cat ones she included - every SINGLE detail or every single thing Casey did for me was thought out!!!

So even though my small medium and large were more like a large, XXL, and 5X, Casey STILL included some extras! 

Cloth pads (I asked for them - if you havent tried them, you MUST - they are SO much better than anything Ive ever tried before!)

adorable barrettes!!

and an awesome bookmark with a sexy plus sized woman (much like myself!)

She also sent tea for my hubby and Reese's!!  Yay!!!  He has already started plowing into both (trust me, its a minor miracle I got a picture of the bookmark when I did, since he's stolen it already!)

I CANNOT explain that I DID just know she was my stalker, even though I sort of just picked her arbitrarily.  But I just KNEW.  and she knew that I knew!   Cheesy

Seriously, Casey was UNBELIEVABLE!!!!  this was AWESOME!!!  the fact that it came after the day i had was just that much better!!!

Im gonna throw a few more exclamation points out there just so you all really get how perfect her package was, how thoughtful she was, how totally she nailed me with colors and fabrics and everything, and overall that I am now in love with Casey1201!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Swapping up a storm here!  Totally open to personal swaps - I am always in need of awesome stuff Wink

Another great package! I love the fabric combo on the weekender bag & I'm totally jealous of that sewing case (& everything in it of course!)  Grin Grin Grin

wanting to do everything is *no excuse* for not doing anything.

You can tell the stalkers so far have done a great job by the amount of enthusiasm in this gallery!  Wink

I'm fascinated by the lip balm from fluffypants-- I've seen button makers before, (my aunt even had one back in the 80s,) but I hadn't seen home-made lip balms in the twist-up stick containers before.  Is there some sort of device you use to put it all together, or do you just pour really carefully or something?
