It was so kind of you to post, Hockamama, at what must be a dreadful time for you: my heart goes out to you.


Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

I think it's about time I made an update: here are the comments I noted for the remains of Round 1 and round 2's pictures. I'm not posting round 3's comments until at least after I've posted out round 3, which won't be today, that's for certain.

Round 1:
Aheartofglass's package is lovely. What a bright and friendly material the tote bag is, and all those beads, smashing. The thing-a-ma-jig is really intriguing, please post some pictures when you use it.

Jaywesome's cute little bunny is, well, cute. It made me laugh the way he is eating the greens off the top of the carrot.

Ecstasia's table runner for Easter is lovely, just the right colours for a spring festival and the purple lifts it right up.

Southern Flower's little pink handbag is sweet. It needed that polka dot lining to make it just right, I'm so glad it had it.

SciFunk's tree of Gondor notebook made me green with envy and to add the dice, I think the embellished d20 is lovely, if I could do it without being accused of weighting it I'd try myself.

PurplePaisley's kindle bag is cute, cherries and cupcakes: yumyumyum.

Crazy4bags's cross stitch made me laugh!

Anefariouimp's package looks cool. The bunny is cute and I look forward to seeing some projects inspired by the book!

Seasidemuses's glass looks beautiful, celtic and gorgeous.

Haylie's earrings look lovely, the length is just right on her.

Round 2: (p.s. I've included the purple monster comments again so it doesn't get orphaned.)

Larissa-Rasputin's purple monster is such fun. I want one now, as does my nephew.

KaoticKrafter's horse glass is brilliant and beautiful. I love the way the glass is still so clear, but the horse shines out.

KriSmith's package is huge!. A lovely totebag, with a pocket on the outside! How useful, it saves you having to rummage through the contents to reach the pocket. And very pretty birds and pins.

Susanab's package is another enormous one! The wrist cuff is cute, the cards and the envelopes look sweet. The flowers and the pin cushion are fun, but my favourite has to be the quilted leaves.

Aheartofglass's package is marvellous. I love the subtle pattern in the fabric and the white highlight makes them look so fresh. I'm jealous.

JustKat's picture is sweet, the flowery fairy sounds just the thing to go with her collection.

Ffrogg526's ipod case looks lovely and goes so well with her keychain. (If it were mine it'd get messed up straight away: I'd put the allotment key on it! But then I use the things I like, nothing gets saved for best round me!)

Leslieshappyheart's package's look good. But those pin's! And the thought and care that went into the Bird pin! It's astonishing: you are so very lucky Leslieshappyheart.

Seasidemuses's package looks great, very well tailored to her. A pretty purple bracelet (I do so like glass) and the squishy scented stuff. It must smell divine.

Ashalah's package is lovely. The felt flower clips look just right for pinning anywhere, hair, jacket, the end of a scarf.... and she seems very pleased with the extra's.

Haylie's snake looks amazing. I can see there's a lot of work gone in to it.

Crafty-in-tally's crochet hook case is so incredibly useful and a pretty colour too. I want one for my knitting needles: I'd better get sewing now.

Hockamama's package looks lovely, beautiful fused glass and lots of other nice things.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo

Antidigger's Round synopsis is so perfect that I should quote it and say "what she said" about everything!  Grin

thanks for summing things up so well!

Craftster keeps the whimsey in my life!

So I remembered to upload my pictures yesterday, but completely forgot to post them in the gallery... Lips sealed

This is what I got in my Round 2 package from Larissa-Rasputin.

Action Shot!!

It fits perfectly and really matches my style (as people have told me  Grin)  Thank you Wink Wink Wink

Be strange. Be weird.  Be geeky. Embrace cuteness =)

I received from my round 2 partner!  I'm out of town until Monday but the BF says it's there!  I let him open it and he took one terrible picture in between rounds of Call of Duty (HATE that game -- well that it turns him into a zombie!)  But I got paper beads, a notebook, bookmark and a card!  they look awesome I can't wait to see them in person - I LOVE paper beads!  Thank you!

I'm not sure who its from though, look familiar anyone?

My round 1 partner had to drop out Cry I never, ever take pictures of my swap packages because I'm super lazy. This time, however, I loved my package so much that I pulled out my camera before sending, possibly for the first time ever. Good thing, too! So here is what I sent in my round 1 package:

She had a specific version of Link's Adventures listed (Link to the Past), so I did a bunch of research to make sure I was stitching the proper Link. I hope I wound up getting it right! I sent it in a little frame that allowed space between my stitching and the glass. I usually just leave the glass off stitched stuff that I keep, but I wanted something a bit more formal since I was sending it off to a new home.

I received a few days ago from gaudiknight, got a lovely scarf and a cute little totebag!
I'll use the totebag for the library, since books fit in there.
Oh how I adore totebags. (:
The scarf is cute and thin, perfect for spring Cheesy
Thankyou so much Gaudiknight!
I will be posting pictures later when I find my battery, still didn't find it :/
And otherwise I'll buy a new one, I miss using my camera :'D
