I received a wonderful package from my amazing partner, Sylvanna!

First I took out this guy, he is just too sweet!

This little guy is adorable, I sat him on the first gnome's hat to take this picture, and he just seemed right at home!  I think he'll stay there for a while Smiley

Then there was this awesome embroidery, which will be going up on the wall near the entrance.

There were two little containers which she warned me would be difficult to open, but it was well worth it!!

These adorable mushroom buttons were in one...

And this fun, funky bracelet was in the other!!  I put the bracelet on right away.

These candies are not only super cute, but they're REALLY delicious!!  I laughed out loud when I saw them, they're too perfect!

And last but most definitely not least, this beautifully stitched tote bag!!  I was so excited when I saw it, I took it out grocery shopping right away, and then used it to carry my latest knitting project to work.  This was before I got to take a picture, which is why it's so wrinkled already haha.

I got so spoiled on my first swap, I feel so lucky to have been a part of this.  Thanks so much for your hard work at making my first swap such a success Sylvanna, and thank you cklnh for organizing Smiley

I'm so happy you like everything!! You were a pleasure to craft for  Smiley You took such lovely photos of everything!

I LOVE my package too. I haven't been able to get home from work in time to take photos in the daylight, so I hope these do the items justice....

First item is this gorgeous ring....it's a perfect fit and has been worn every day since Monday when I received the package  Smiley

Next is this lovely bracelet...the beads are so cute...

Then this little cross stitch picture, which I'm going to frame and put up in my office...

Next came a bag clip and three magnets with the most gorgeous gnome artwork in them...

I haven't decided which bag is going to have the clip attached - but the magnets are already up on the message board in my kitchen.

Then came my most favourite thing ever!! A hood and necklace for my Blythe!!

Close up of the necklace....

They match my Blythe sooo perfectly  Cheesy

Thank you again...everything you sent was totally "me" and I love it all  Smiley

finally able to post the AWESOME pkg I rec'd from KrisCreates! I was having such a crappy day  - and then when I got home, it was like Christmas! so here we go!

awesome gnome fingerless gloves (which I have just finally really got into - and now I have a pair made for me - I really really like them, and they fit perfectly!

then I found this lovely little painted box, and inside was: (dun dun dun!)

the earrings are so cool, and my daughter has run off with the necklace, she liked it so much. And last but certainly not least :

these are in the middle of a large discussion over where they should go - and I've had to keep them away from the boy, as he's three and likes to take them and sit and stare at them and sing songs to them - but they are MOMMY's, darn it!
Kris, thank you so much for this lovely swap, you were a great partner and I had such a good time!

Geeky Swap - sent

Those gloves are great. Do they happen to be duplicate stitch? I  might be tempted to make me a pair.
