unfortunately, I don't think I'll be able to post pictures before I leave on my trip. Too busy. But I promise to post pictures as soon as I get back!

As promised here is the amazing package that I received from my partner opheliapoe!!!!   

I was super spoiled with some amazing items!  First 2 cute little owl magnets which will nest on my file cabinet at work. Also some stickers that will be used in my scrapbooking!

Next I opened this cute jewelry pouch, I love the fabric and the detail it was crafted so perfect.  It is perfect to take to the lake and I have nothing like it.  As I started looking at it more closely I found it was full of unique jewelry.
I was going to get action shots but it just did not happen.

The tree of life is done in two size black beads with a mother of pearl disc for the moon and a cute little owl charm.  I can not remember if this was on my wist but I saw one similar and fell in love with it, now I have one of my very own but consider it much better!  So unique!  The cloisonne owl with the gold chain and turquoise and lime beads is to cute and The brown one with wooden beads is a carved stone.  The earrings that are a pale shade of purple did not photograph so well but are fantastic too.  All the colors are perfect
I love everypiece.  Thank you so much!

Next was this most amazing and unique piece of art!  This lady has an awesome talent with  clay.  This piece was done on a board that she stained in a shade of purple.  but she added the perfect needle punched owl inside.  The colors are terrific and so me! (I can not find my card, but correct me if I am wrong)  I think this was one of here first needle punched items! Not only was the clay work so original It is the  so pretty and I have added quite a few pictures of it.  This will be hanging on my wall at work where I spend so many hours a day and can enjoy it.  It will also be seen by about 200 employees that work under me so it will kinda like be in an art gallery where it belongs!!!!!!

The back was even finished so well,

Thanks you so much Dani for such a wonderful and well thought out package! I love it all and hope to see more of your clay goodies in future swaps!!!! I truly feel spoiled!!

I am so glad that you liked everything quaggy!!

 I had a lot of fun with the punchneedle owl. You are right, it was my very first try at punchneedle embroidery. It is so fun, and it is quick and easy. My husband was sad to see that little guy go. So, I had to promise to make another one. lol... I kinda wish I would have done it on a colored fabric instead of muslin, though. Once I was done I thought it looked a little plain, but there wasn't anything I could do about it then. So, that's how the frame was born. I thought it would look too boring in a plain old frame. So, I jazzed it up.

You have been an awesome partner! I hope that we get paired up again someday Smiley You are a super talented lady. My daughter still hasn't let go of her pillow. She will fight over that thing, lol.

Glad the pillow is being loved and yes I love everything that you made for me.  Continue your needlepunch and clay as you have an amazing talent for both.  Tell hubby I would sell the art work back to him but the price would be way to high!!!!!!

Thank you for the kind words everybody Smiley Nothing like friendly Craftsters to boost your confidence!

The hubby doesn't know it yet, but he is getting a punchneedle guitar wall hanging for father's day. It is so addictive, I just haven't had time to do another one between school and then my kids were all sick at the same time last week. They are rarely sick, so when they do get something its awful. But, now I'm on break from school and the kids are all better. So, I can get back to doing my normal random crafting.

I mean I love you guys and all but it's a beach with sand and surf....ahhhhh. Ok..so I will do my best to get everyone's status' updated and all that jazz today...should you need me send me a PM and when I am not lounging by the ocean I shall get back to you ASAP.

Peace, love, and owl biscuits.
