I received a suuuuper cute package #3 from EdenKitty and I'm finally getting a chance to get pictures up...she's been such an awesome partner and there have been so many cute suprises!  So, the package included a wishlist-inspired embroidery piece (OMG, so charming!):

..and an explosive felting kit (with a note on the box that the contents were under pressure... so cute!)

She sent more of her gorgeous hand-spun yarn (the photo doesn't do this justice.. it's got shiny flecks in it and the color is so gorgeous and variegated)

And cute earrings... an awesome hair clip.. fun stickers and extras.. Smiley YAY!

..and last but not least, a super fun summer headband with the cutest flip flop on the side:

Thank you so much EdenKitty for an awesome swap experience!!

Alright, I received from Ashley G. a while ago, sorry I haven't posted pics yet!
She sent a wonderful package!

First, she sent my some gum (I'm addicted... lol) There is a pack of orbit and a BIG thing of Juicy Fruit that is not pictured because my bf stole it.  Roll Eyes Also in the pic is some adorable buttons (I LOVEEEE buttons!!)

She sent a clay starter kit, which is amazing! I am so in love with this roller!

And lastly an item inspired by one on my wist (isn't it great when you can finally delete something from your wist Smiley )

The pictures do not do it justice, it is gorgeous! I will have to find the perfect place to hang it in my craft room!

Parcel #3 received from Onyxnox!

First, I'd like to apologize to our organizer and to my partner for being soooooooooooooo late in both sending parcel #3 AND in posting these pesky pictures!  Life kinda took over the end of August on me and I got busier than I've been in quite some time...  So I am sorry and I hope you don't think ill of me....  Cry

Anyway, my parcel #3 was AWE-SOME!!!  Smiley  Really looking forward to playing around with these goodies!  Supplies are always exciting to me - ALWAYS!

So first up is a DIY Stencilling kit complete with printed instructions, hobby knife, cutting mat, freezer paper, fabric medium and mixing jars, and an awesome Eric bag (love True Blood).  Not only that, but a great True Blood notebook, too - I can hardly wait to try my hand at stenciling!!

Next is this cute cute cute WIP bag, with matching crochet hook roll and wristband pincushion.  So cute!!

Inside the WIP bag, were these goodies!  Some nice yarn and some sewing notions.  Smiley  I'm not too sure what to make with the yarn yet, but you'd better believe I'm gonna check out ravelry and figure it out!!

And last but not least, some very thoughtful extras.  Some gorgeous organdy flowers with freshwater pearls in the centre  to use as I see fit.  I think I might do a headband or two for my daughter with these, and maybe put the rest on a nice handmade blouse or dress.  Also some embellished bobby pins (so cute!) and finally some chocolate covered berries -- my partner was being respectful of my weight loss journey and these treats were SO thoughtful - I REALLY appreciate them!!  (And I've already had a couple bags, what is shown is just what is left - very yummy treats and they don't send me over the deep end in calories, and they are full of beneficial antioxidants, to boot!).  Smiley

So thank you partner, for everything in all 3 wonderful parcels.  I appreciate everything so very much and I had a lot of fun!!!  Your parcel should be there by the weekend, and I'm really hoping you like everything.  And again, I do apologize for being so pokey with parcel #3.   Embarrassed

I got my package from what's_her_name earlier in the week - she made me a pair of scrubs and sent me the pattern to make my own, and a whole box load of papercrafting supplies - love the stamps and am eager to try the dies.

I wore the top already on Wednesday and got so many compliments from my coworkers - they love the pattern and fabric.

Thank you so much - it was totally worth the wait!

Sorry for the wrinkles, I took the picture after wearing it to work, and DH threw it in the hamper before I took pics.

The pattern pieces for the scrubs to make my own

Papercutting dies, and adorable Halloween stamps

More gorgeous stamps - I have some ideas for these and some new things I am trying

An elegant portable office/organizer set - so pretty!

Thank you so much - I had so much fun making and receiving from you.  This was a lovely swap, and I am looking to the Holiday Edition coming up!

I'm so happy that it fits and that your co-workers even noticed!  Smiley  I hope you enjoy using the pattern - before you do, keep in mind that I sometimes missed adding some of the markings on my freezer paper copy and then I'd just do it as I was cutting out instead.  I've sewn enough that that worked for me, but you might want to open up the original pattern to compare before you start making your own and fix the freezer paper copy up a bit.  I know I missed a handful of markings...

And I hope you have a ton of fun with the stamps!  You can go to SplitCoastStampers.com and look up pretty much any one of those stamp sets in the gallery for about a million ideas for cards.
