I adore that I-Spy bag!! It almost makes me want to have a kid so I can make them fun stuff like that... almost...

My son hasn't stopped playing with it.  And you know what?  It is quite addictive.  My husband picked it up last night and then HE couldn't stop playing with it!  Then he said to me... that is so cool.  And the fact that it's personalized (with the use of letters spelling my son's name) is even cooler!

My swap partner has definitely outdone herself and I can't stop looking at all the cool things she sent.  I woke up to owl bunting staring me in the face this morning.  So cool.

I'm really glad it has been a successful package.
 I am always pretty cool with the ideas I come up with, I put a lot of time into thinking about what to make for my partner.  It is the execution that often lets me down.  Like the drawers.  I had an idea but it didn't work properly for a couple of reasons: 1. When I painted the drawers that tiny thickness of paint made them too wide and they don't slide nicely, they keep sticking. 2.  The top corners, tried to cover up my mistakes with the ribbon, but to me it just draws attention to my stuff-ups. 
We are always our own worst critic arent' we.  Smiley

I received from SMLounsbury Saturday and WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!  First of all let me apologize for not having better pictures but my camera's cord is MIA and I had to highjack an iphone and email the pictures to me...also Zoe was a bit aggrivated that I was making her model and not letting her eat grass.

We had discussed in PMs that I would like to have things for Zoe's first birthday party which is going to be owl themed.... all those who are shocked please raise their hands.  Boy oh boy did she come through on this!!!!!!!!!!!!

First up is the ADORABLE onesie that has the CUTEST owl and Zoe's name on it!!!!!!!!! She said that this was her first embroidered onesie...you could NOT tell!!  She made this so that she could eat cake and get messy in!

Next up are the dress and matching headband.  This dress looks like it came off of a designer store's shelf.  She and her daughter Olivia (Hi! Olivia!!) made the owl shaped buttons out of Sculpey!!!!  I am blown away by the buttons!!!! She put a fuzzy owl applique on the front of the dress and Zoe has already enjoyed petting it.  It fits PERFECT and will be the cutest birthday dress EVER!!!!  She also said that this was the first headband that she had made.  I think that I could make 50 and they wouldn't turn out this perfect!!

Now apparently at some point I claimed that I didn't want an owl stuffy. Hmmmmm.... why would I lie?  This was made for Zoe but I am having serious thoughts about keeping it for myself...ahem...I mean putting it up for her until she gets bigger.  This owl's name is Annie and Olivia named and cared for her SOOOOO good until she came to live with us.  Stacey made the pattern up so she is the original prototype of something that is sure to make her rich and famous, or at least famous on Craftster.  This little sucker took her over 6 hours to make!! Talk about preserverance!  She was SO worth it though!!! Adorable!!

This is a shot of the onesie that shows the embroidery and 2 BEAUTIFUL owl pictures that Olivia made.  Also if you notice the small owl it is made of perler beads and Olivia made that!!!  She is going to be one crafty little lady!!

And finally she included a super cute owl frame and a bag of goodies for me which had Burt's Bee's yummies in it!! I LOVE Burt's Bee's!!!!!!!!!!  There was also a bag of candy for my soon to be stepson in the box but it was confiscated this morning before I had a chance to take its picture.  It was well loved for all of 30 seconds.  Did he even stop to taste it?

I am blown away by the talent and generosity of Stacey and Olivia!!!  They outdid themselves and have made my daughter the best possible birthday gift ever!!! Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
