Yay I received today from yzzilnoaj!! Super excited!  Grin

This is the back, it's sooo cool! Much better than my decoration!  Embarrassed

Here is all the awesomeness!!

Close up of the star artwork! Funny thing is (and I don't know how she knew) but I actually want a tattoo VERY similar to this on my foot!! Smiley

I hope these don't come out blurry!! They were the best my camera could seem to get!

I received both my envelopes yesterday.

From ekioart:  

My photo is horrible and I apologize for that.  The black piece of fabric has the best texture ever and has an embossed design.  It's going in my " pieces for that awesome crazy quilt I'll make some day" box.

The drawn sugar skull and the circle design are just gorgeous in real life.  I actually intend to frame the sugar skull as a gift for a dear friend of mine.

My favorite thing is the postcard bookmark.   I adore vintage bookmarks and have never seen one used in such a simple yet clever way.

Thanks so much ekioart!

Next from strawberryh:

I was a little shocked by this one.  I certainly didn't expect anything quite this elaborate in a 44 cent swap.  

See what I mean?  As awesome as this pouch looks here,  my pic doesn't begin to capture how truly beautiful it is.  And it's made perfectly.  I enjoyed it for the entire 10 minutes I owned it before my 21 year old saw it and swooned.  Hey, that's part of being a Mom, right?  

Thank you both so much.  This was my first 44 cent swap and I feel that I may have let you both down a bit.  I hope not.  I love everything you both sent so much.

Edit:  I just realized that I haven't looked through this gallery.  I simply can't get over how many amazing things are posted here.  The butterfly, the peace sign, the paper cuttings... well, everything... it's all wonderful.  What a fun swap this has been.

I just got my envelope from rubies-pearls today! It is soooo cute!!

She sent buttons, fabric yo yos, stickers, and other fun embellishments...but the coolest thing is the felt needlebook!! It is adorable and I really needed one! What a good idea for a small crafty item! The envelope she sent the goodies in was also neat, but I accidently ripped it when opening - oops! It was red with pretty blue gingham pattern. Thanks so much!! I love everything!

Lay me down and close my eyes where the red-winged blackbird flies...

Wow Every ones envelopes are so cool. I am happy that gamemom wasn't disappointed that I only put one thing in her envelope. I have tons of things I could have just stuffed in but  I saw she has sugar skull stuff on her wistlist. and since I had the Fabric and the beads I just thought a wristlet would be cool. And I get stuff stolen by my not so smalls too. My daughter stalks my chair when a package comes in waiting for me to open it so she can pounce.

I cannot take credit for the bookmark postcard ^_^ One of my etsy friends made me a bunch and when I saw you liked postcards I had to share.
That was my first time drawing a sugar skull so I'm glad you liked it! And the flower is a vintage iron on from one of my grandmothers books.
That pouch, so cool!

What a fun swap, I can't wait to see the rest!

I'm bringing sexy back, I think I dropped it somewhere between the donut shop and the Cheesecake Factory.

PepsiTwist I am so glad that you like what I sent!  Again I wish I could have gotten more in the envelop...I am truly AMAZED by what people are fitting!

I love so much of what has been crafted.

I received from Puzzler...it turns out she is one of those people that fit a pound of stuff in a 44 cent envelope.  I absolutely feel spoiled!  I received all sorts of stickers, ribbons, earrings, dot games, bookmark and old postcards.  I have to say the old post cards are my favorite!

Aren't they too cool

Thank you Puzzler!
