Hear that sound Princess? That is the sound of the shrieking eels.
No it's not! It is ME!  Shrieking in delight at the wonderful, delightful, magnificent crafty goodness that Thisburdsabsurd made for ME!  Grin

And I just know that you will all try to determine where I live so that you can kidnap what I have rightfully stolen - but you can't! Cause it is just for me.  We've already had the ceremony and everything:
"Cwafting.  Cwafting is wot bwings us twogeva twoday. I will Tweasure my cwafts!!!"  
I'll skip to the end now...
here are the pictures.
This was what greeted me when I opened the package! This and some sweets for my kiddos - which they loved! And ate so quickly I didn't get a picture!  But Thisbird drew that! She's GOOD!
This is a mug hugger. Or an insulating sleeve for those hot cups of coffee. It says, "I'm not a witch I'm your wife!" Which cracks me up! I don't know how she got the words to fabric - she is awsomer than I.
This is a replica of the goblet of wine/iocane powder with the warning to not touch! It is also a pin cushion - since I sew. (I LOVE this!)
And this is a baby ROUS. The babies are born ferocious (and grey!) And he is a weight that holds the bag for me to put scraps and snips of thread in so they won't wind up all over my house. He is SO adorable. She trimmed his hair around his face to make it even more realistic - and he is just...inconceivable!!!
This is the bag (which is detachable so I can empty it!) which catches the thread etc. And it is the fire swamp! Isn't she amazing?!!! This package is the greatest thing, in the world-except for a nice MLT - mutton, lettuce and tomato sandwich, where the mutton is nice and lean and the tomato is ripe...

Another cool thing - tho silly and small I admit...is the tail on the adorable ROUS...it is so soft and touchable!  He really is such a cutie!  Thank you so much Thisbird!  You definitely hit the mark!

 Shocked I would try to kidnap what you've rightfully stolen, but I have my last item to finish, packaging and postage to arrange, my package to mail and Guilder to blame for it not being done already. I'm swamped!

BTW... I am in total awe! I LOVE the pincushion goblet and the fire swamp bag/R.O.U.S.! Thisbird's AMAZING!

(Now I'm totally nervous now about sending my package - which should be tomorrow if all goes well...)

Let me 'splain. No, there is too much. Let me sum up.

As you can tell, CoutureCreations was A LOT of fun to craft for!  I told her, her quoting skills far surpass anything I could aspire to!  Lots of inspiration from emails and her wist - I really had a blast with this!  And words to coffee sleeve?  That was just a paint pen! Smiley  Glad you liked everything!!
  My package is out for delivery - I should have it by this afternoon!!  Woo hoo!  So exciting!

(Thank you Some_girl and Whistley!!)  Smiley

Wistley - you haven't got anything if you don't have your health!  Rest up!! Wink
Oh - and you're right.  She IS amazing!  I was so impressed!  And very nervous too since this is my first swap and I'm feeling totally humbled and nervous and first-time jitters. 

I mean - how could I compete with THAT kind of talent!?!?  I'm just trusting that she will enjoy the edible parts and doesn't sick the ancient boo-er on me! Embarrassed

Thisbird - Looking forward to your postman's visit!  That was fast!!!

Excellent package! The fire swamp applique is fantastic! I also love that it's lined with flame fabric. The goblet - also very cool.
