I received Smiley

A wonderful wonderful package from timtanz89...


I am really sorry for the bad quality but some idiot stole my camera on a party so I had to use my iphone... I try to make better photos with another camera another day.

Timtanz89 sent a super cute sock monkey with a super long tail.... I am thinking about to implant a wire to hang it up on my bed.
Then she sent my a black cap which I wore yesterday on a walk in the snow... it is really warm! Smiley
She also sent me a little keyring with notepaper on it which are decorated really nice... I especially like the animals! It is called "One hundred days of happiness" and I should write something on each paper that made me happy that day. When I am feeling sad I can read the things that made me happy once. I decided to start it on 01/01/11.
I got some clothes pins with magnets on one side. I used them for my photo-wall.
The box on the photo is a box where I can put things or photos in it that made me happy.
Last but not least I got candy. I LOVE candy...  Grin

Thank you Tammy for being such a great swapping partner! I hope my package will be there soon...

Aww yay you got it, I was starting to worry that it wouldn't get there!... Glad you like it all =) Ah yes a wire in the tail would be a good idea, I haven't actually thought of doing that. The ribbon in the hat can be pulled out too if you get sick of it =) Yay so exciting, I can't wait to get your package

I love the sock monkey!!

Received a couple of days ago from Beki but have been mega busy doing college work so only just took pics. I'll post what I sent her as well, she received last week and hasn't posted so I'll assume she's been busy and post Smiley

Firstly the awesome package I received! Here's the gorgeous string-and-bead bracelet she made me, because I mentioned on my wist that I like string bracelets:

Next she made me some lovely summery clip on earrings because I said I wasn't looking forward to winter. Cheesy

And last but by no means least a MAGNIFICENT cross stitch which is on my hoopla wall Smiley

Thanks again darlin'!

Here's what I sent:
A little bag with some fimo beads and charms in that I forgot to photograph


Embroidered magnet:

Patchwork pincushion:

Rabbit stuffie:

Embroidery hoop:

Hope you like it!

I love that 100 days of happiness idea.  I'm gonna steal it for a journal and make it A Lifetime of Happiness.  And both the cross stitch and the embroidery look flawless.  That that tall bunny makes me wanna make stuffies.   Smiley

so i guess no one else has received in a long while!im still waiting for my package but i guess since its the holiday season the post office is absurdly slow

I would absolutely love to have a personal swap! I'm interested in jewelry, soap, and anything that inspires you on my Pinterest

I will post pics since my partner didn't. We decided to do our swap My Chemical Romance themed.

I crocheted her a Gerard Way amigurumi in his Black Parade outfit

I made her a necklace

And I painted her a Gerard Way Party Poison mask from the new album.

I also crocheted her a plain black beanie and made her a few bracelets but I didn't take any pics of those before I shipped.

i was a swap angel for this one, and thought i'd post pics of what i made since my partner may not have had time to do so.

she likes reading, so i made her an embroidered bookmark:

she also likes sewing so i made her a needle book:

i also sent her a teacup, some embroidery floss, a copy of peppermint magazine, and some sweets (including bubblegum, which she said was her favourite flavour).

Beki, I love the pin cushion you made!
