Magsb80 I love it, please, please please if you took a photo can you post it as this photo is not doing justice to the thing of beauty and function you have made for me. It is reversible and just truly too perfect.

Sadly my photos of the apron aren't much better (awkward thing to photograph - especially late at night!), but here's a couple.

Also, in your camera change over you must have forgotten to take photos of 2 other items... the owl pin cushion and a 3 pack of scented drawer sachets.  So I've added photos here for you.

So glad you like your goodies spectrumsparksie!

Thanks magsb80.  they are def better than mine.
I am so sorry about the lack in posting the other two items of awesomeness.  The drawer sachets are beautiful and smell divine.  And the little owl pin cushion?  isn't he the best?  And magsb80 didn't even show the cute little decorated box she made for him.  Too good.
Thanks again for being just the best magsb80.

I received Jennilocker's package today and all I can say is wow!  I got the package about an hour ago and I'm still processing the awesomeness that we just opened.  By we, I mean Olivia.  Be prepared for picture overload.

First, this is Olivia giving the package some pre-opening love.  How awesome to not only get a package but to get one wrapped in Care Bears paper?  Rock on!  Jenni addressed it to Olivia too, but I was in a hurry photoshopping the addresses out so it got covered up. 

Next up is the group shot.  There was SOOOO much that this was the hardest picture to take!  Don't mind the weirdness in the background.  I had to tower over the table, standing on a chair to get this shot.

So now some smaller group shots to help you take it all in.
A picture, a craft book and pattern for some awesome handbags.

Olivia's favorite things.  An apron, a painted box, her new doll that she has not let go of, and a needle felted owl (Jennilocker's first needle felted animal--How awesome that she gets to live with us)  She also got the coolest apron that she's wearing in another pic.

A needle felted bag and accessory.  I can't wait to use this to carry my WIP's in!  AND a needle felting starter kit!!!  How awesome is that?  I can't wait to give it a go!!

Okay, I love these earrings so much.  Liv and I might fight over these.

They came in this!

Check out these awesome etched glasses.  I love them so so so so so much!!! 

Care Bears to start Harper's collection (from Zoe, awwww), Pacman candy for Nicholas and some awesome owl chocolates!

Pics of the girls:

Liv's face lit up so much with this doll.  She does not own anything like it and she just adores her so much. 

Liv in her owl apron with her owl.  She is still talking about making cookies.

Harper loving her care bears the only way she knows how.

I can't begin to thank Jennilocker enough.  She sent such an amazing package.  We love everything.  She is an amazing partner.  I have enjoyed getting to know her during this swap and now I am so lucky to have her beautiful items in my home. 

You are one talented lady and you made Olivia and I smile. Thank you so much.  You were the perfect partner.   Grin

Update:  The needle felted owl's name is now Sweet Pea.  The doll's name, for now, is Owlo.  I'm sure that will change.  Now, we prepare to go to the bus stop so she can show off her new items to her school aged friends as we pick up her brother.

I love that she named the owl Sweet Pea!! My dad called me that when I was little.   Olivia and Harper are both ADORABLE!!!  My mom made me wrap the box pretty because it was going to Olivia.  And I did tell you that Alexis painted the box with the unibrow owl didn't I? LOL! I am SO glad she liked her package!

I forgot to mention that in my description.  That box is awesome.  Tell Alexis that she did an awesome job.  Liv loves the picture she painted for her as well.  it's already on her dresser. 

Liv ended up naming the doll "Allie."  That is really ironic about the Sweet Pea connection.  She came up with that name on her own... She names everything.   Smiley

ok i am going to post the pictures of what i sent my partner because she is going out of town and for once i actually remembered to take some lol,
first is the thing that took for freaking ever which is an owl embroidery framed in an 8x10 frame but it was bigger

next is my favorite thing i made, i want to make myself one in pink! it is an owl sleep mask i thought would be creepy lol

then i bought a purse from the raft area of wal-mart and embroidered felt on it

then i tried to make an owl shrine which i have never done before so i hope she likes it

then i found an owl pic and made a small magnet and just a magazine for the heck of it

last is a shot of a change wallet (the red owl) i made, the sleep mask again and extras i gathered up! i painted the shell owl to make it cooler lol
