Holy crap- I received! USPS.com showed my package was out for delivery and I was so excited I called in late for work.  Roll Eyes

First of all- let me say that nostephot is the best partner ever. Not only is she super talented and fun to craft for, but she's really great to chat with in PMs as well.

Secondly- we decided to swap two cans. I'm painting my craft room as soon as the weather gets nicer (the paint is sitting here, ready to go!!) and nostephot took the color combination I'm using (spring green and orange) and gave me tons of goodies to decorate my space!

Here are the cans. One is covered in a neat red graffiti paper, the other is in my color scheme and came with four matching pom pom flowers! I'm going to add a couple button flowers I have and put it on my desk. Smiley

Here is a pretty zippered pouch (can never have too many of these!), a pretty bead necklace, two killer shrinky dinks, and a Harry Potter pin (we're both huge fans).

A chapstick cozy, mini notebook and a few matchbook notebooks. I've already stowed one in my purse. Also- some of the cute ribbon! I'm not normally a purple fan, but I really love that floral ribbon.

Next is a bunch of yoyos, a yoyo pin, and a cute mini scarf that went immediately into the book I was reading (after I wrestled it away from the cat). Smiley

Then she made me a great fabric banner. I'm going to put it on the door to my craft closest to spruce up the white color. Smiley

We also included lots of stuff to add to our stashes. Here's the beautiful fabric bits I received!

Buttons galore, a koy fish magnet, Harry Potter trading cards, Garbage Pail Kids cards, and other cute stuff.

Beads, patches, zippers, and the cutest sewing charms ever. I have a crafting charm bracelet and those are getting added right to it!! There's a thimble, a n "I Love Sewing" and even a scotch tape shaped charm!

And I saved the best for last. I was lusting after C's x-stitch skills and she delivered! The first is a robot hanging from a tree. I heart robots. Even my husband loved this one! The second is a little bird and birdhouse. It's actually framed inside a Pringles lid. How clever! The third (and my favorite) is my name- and each letter has a little bird on it! I ran out right after work and got frames for the larger two pieces (the little one is going to stay in his Pringles lid). Smiley

Seriosuly, C. Thank you so so SO much! I couldn't have asked for a better partner. I hope you like your cans as much as I love mine!  *HUG*

I had a great time crafting for you!  It was such fun stuff and it all came together well.... when I sent I almost felt like I had not sent enough..... I am so excited that you liked everything!!!!!  I take it the purple in the binding of the banner was not too much!!!! That is what I was most worried about!  I really LOVE that and think I need to make one for myself!  Thank you for all the sweet complements!  You really made me smile!!! Smiley

Actually, I'm really liking the purple with the green and orange. It might become a new accent color. Smiley

Now I get to have a nice relaxing evening at home with my OCD- sorting buttons. Smiley If only the weather would co-operate so that I could paint, I'd be in heaven.

How did you make the fuzzy flowers? Those would go perfect with Horton Hears A Who.  Grin
