I received package #3 from Eveamlizya yesterday! Eeeeee! Such cuteness it burns!

Let me preface this by saying Eveamlizya has not worked with Polymer Clay for long. I only JUST sent her a how-to kit with her second package. Right now I am in awe of her art skills because she made the adorable figure below from polymer clay. Can you believe it?Huh Look at the detail! He's so stinking cute and perfect. She recreated a figure from my wist and did an awesome job at it. I love, love, love this little guy!

In addition to the amazing figure I also received six ATCs and three bookmarks. So cool. The fish ATC is my favorite. I can't wait to find a nice frame for the four flower ATCs - I think they're going to look awesome hanging on my wall.

Thanks for a great swap experience and wonderful presents Carlee! I love everything.

I'm glad you liked everything.  Thanks again for sending the polymer kit because I loved creating that little guy even though it took me a long time lol.  I'm glad he found a good home.  Cheesy 
The koi ATC is my favorite too...it's my favorite coloring, Asagi, meaning dark blue.  Asagi is also the name of my favorite japanese singer from the band D.

Here is my
package number 2 from whats_her_name.

I love it all!!!!

Thank you so much Kerrie, this is a fantastic package and I love it all!

So glad you like everything; and that the hat fits perfectly - yay!!  That was my "disaster" I had talked about previously...  My first attempt didn't felt at all.  After 10 hours of trying to felt, I discovered that there was 70% acrylic in the yarn I had used and I was SO upset, because I thought it was just alpaca; didn't realize it was a blend...  So I had to start all over again...  But thank goodness it was all worth it with my 2nd attempt...

And I don't think I wrote about that little bag of washers in my letter.  They are much like scrabble tile pendants (these ones are not waterproof).  You can trace the washer onto some patterned paper and then glue it down and then use the resin to coat it and voil, you've got yourself a pendant for a necklace!!  I included 2 finished pendants and 3 empty ones for you to create your own.

And I finally tried the chili chocolate over the weekend.  It was lovely; not too hot at all.  My hubby has been enjoying it too.  Smiley

I'm still crafting package #3; but I should be ready to send in a day or two.

This is really really late but here's package 1 from my partner aheartofglass. Unfortunately the letter explaining everything got lost during the moving process and I also can't find one item Sad, a lovely notebook - as far as I remember something that helps her keep organized. Anyway, here are all the other goodies:

Everything together


Worry Dolls from Guatemala

Lovely cards. The painting are by one of her friends.

Her favourite craft: Glass fusing. Unfortunately one of the earrings is broken Sad

Nevada stuff. I especially like the soap shaped like Nevada. The maps and the Nevada passport will come in handy in the classroom. The students have to prepare presentations about the States of America so the Nevada group will have some authentic material. Great!

A cute Snoopy bookmark that I forgot to include in the group shot.

Thank you, Cindy, for everything! It's so exciting to have learnt something about you that way. And sorry for posting that late!

I'll swap for postcards, badges, maps or brochures from everywhere in the US! I'm an English teacher and always happy about authentic material for my classroom.

Oh no! I can't believe that earring broke! (please send back and I'll repair it!)

This scares me for the large I'm making for you! I was worried about sending something fragile through the international mail but now I'm really worried since the earrings should have been fine!     Undecided

Okay - here we go - my fabulous package 3 from missingwillow.  I'm kinda sad it's the end but I really do feel like I made a great friend in this swap - it's been awesome!!
First of all I got this amazing bag inspired by one on my wist.  This is her first purse if you can believe it (I think she must be lying - it's too well made!!) - it's got so many pockets and opens up in such a great way - I'll be able to find everything!

Here's something else from my wist - and once again - embroidery is a new skill for her - isn't this just too cute?

And a table mat made from felted sweaters - it is gorgeous!!

And last but not least a super cute altered tin of sushi made by missingwillow, her daughter - even cackle had a hand in this one - I'm so lucky to receive something that so many talented people had a hand in!

Thank you for being such a great swap partner missingwillow - and thanks for becoming a great friend!!

I'm sad this swap is over, too.  I could easily swap with you a few times a year.   Smiley  I learned a lot of new things crafting for you.  Thank you!

Package 2
Received from Ewulotta

What a wonderful package!!!!

The *Works* - love the hand dyed silk scarf! The colors are perfect!!!

A "learn to Tat" kit with some gorgeous purple and blue thread! (hopefully I will not just make a bunch of knots! this is a difficult skill to master LOL)

Something local - a story about Elves of Cologne (I love elves! my grandson and I will emjoy this) and a favorite artist Klee - looking forward to giving this a listen

Some local postcards from her new home. Some "fruits" for summer essential!!! Since fruit would have never made it she sent yummy fruit bath scents!

Thank you so much Ewulotta! I loved everything!!

(which only makes me more sad that my Package 2 to you was lost...  Embarrassed)
