Hi, guys!  Just stopping by with a little note for you!  Please be 100% sure that you are typing your Organizer's username correctly when you send a PM.  Poor Annchan is getting some of your PMs, so please be sure to doublecheck that you are sending to the correct person. Smiley

Your Organizer is Annchen.
Your Organizer is not Annchan. Cheesy

Annchen, I have a PM to forward to you!  It's heading your way in a moment. Smiley

Do more of what makes you happy.

Okay, I have to start this out with a couple apologies... first to my truly awesome partner, onegroovyday for being out of town when this incredible package arrived, & for taking so long to post the awesomeness (I got it Friday), and then an apology to everyone else because this is going to be a total picture overload (although I doubt you'll mind) and once I post this EVERYONE is going to be wisting these items & I wouldn't be surprised if we crash wists.com!
Onegroovyday & I agreed to craft more than the "10 minute" item... how could I resist when the awesome onegroovyday offered to swap more with me?? She did an awesome job of stalking me... I got stuff from my wist & stuff from my OWS list & stuff she knew I'd like! Smiley
Okay... I can't put into words how much I LOVE this swap package so I'm just gonna move on to pictures so you all can appreciate the awesomeness:

Here is some fleece scraps used for packing, some felt (ALWAYS useful!) & Ikea fabric (awesome!!):

Some Swiffer covers in adorable fleece:

Really cute barrettes 'cause I'm trying to grow out bangs:

I know.. that's plenty, but we're still getting to the really awesome stuff. Here's some ankles bells for my sons similar to some on my wist, but way cuter! There are actually two pairs of them, but one of my sons was wearing one when I took this picture:

Here's an adorable Dr. Seuss sign - I LOVE it! My son's nursery is "Oh, The Places You'll Go" themed & I love all things Seuss. This is PERFECT! You can't tell how big it is in the picture, but this is a huge 22" x 9" former cabinet door. Onegroovyday claims this is a one hour craft & I'd doubt her, but she's obviously a crafting genius so I guess it's true!

I'm planning a monster themed birthday party for my two sons in a couple weeks & mentioned on OWS that I'd love monster tails or hats because I'd like to give them to each kid to wear at the party & take home as favors. Onegroovyday helped me out by sending FIVE hats & FIVE tails!! I thought I took a picture of all the tails together, but I can't find it, but I do have action shots. Here are the hats:

The hats are different sizes & some of them even fit my son Cooper's enormous head!

My sons could get enough of these hats & tails. They wore them for hours! I can't wait for the party!

Dexter's also wearing ankle bells in this picture:

AND (yes, still more!), a GIGANTIC (seriously this is the biggest I've ever seen & I could literally use it for laundry if I wanted to) fabric coil bowl in orange, my favorite color, with lots of batik fabric, which I also love. It's incredible & it has a beautiful swirl in the front & handles!! I put my son in it so you could truly appreciate the size!

Onegroovyday, I can't tell you how much I love everything!! Best swap package EVER! Thanks so much!!

SAHMama...so glad you like everything..... and YES the Dr. Seuss sign took about an hour (not including drying time).... it was super easy.... the cabnet door was already painted white.... I covered the middle.....and spray painted the frame.... used a polka dot foam brush for the red dots......and the a paint pen for the words..... sprayed with gloss..... put a hanger on the back...... AND THERE YOU GO ....all done!!

Wow! so many great little things sent and received in this swap! I'm so happy to be a part of it.

I received my lovely package from grimmscreed this weekend! I love my little items, so cute!
First are these sweet little earrings:

I love the little green flowers, and they have just a hint of sparkle to them. I'm wearing them now.
The fab Grimscreed also made me a cozy for my coffee cup. I have a ceramic version of the classic disposable cup that I carry all over town.  Now it will be sporting this sweet cozy.

I love squirrels, I love the color green, and I love big funky buttons, so this is just perfect for me!
HEre's an action shot:

fits like a glove!

Thanks so much!

I would love to do some personal swaps.
I'm looking for handmade soaps, jewelry, and knit legwarmers/socks.
pm me if I can sew something for you!

It's been a few days since my partner marcusandila has received so I thought I would post photo's of what I sent her.

She requested baby items so I sent her, a bunny blanket, a bib, and a soft green blanket.

I also sent some earrings for her.

I hope you enjoy everything marcusandila!

Cute bunny blanket!

Can you please take a look at the first post and check if it's correct? I've posted feedback for those I can, but if any more PMs went to the wrong Ann it might still have errors. If your partner has told you s/he received and you don't have positive feedback yet you need to forward their PM to me so I can give you feedback.

I'm so glad that LauPre liked her package, because she sent me an AMAZING package!  Just look at this little book for me to carry my embroidery supplies in!

Aren't those owls darling?  And I love the colors!  But it gets even better -- here it is all opened up.

Lots of pockets and some darn spiffy fabric!  But what is that snap concealing?

A built in needlebook!

Thank you so much for a fantastic swap!
