I'm going to apologize now for the packing peanuts....but there's breakables in the box Cheesy

I received!!  I'll post pictures after I get home from work (not quite enough time during my lunch break to do that).  Everything is so awesome, I'm already wearing 2 of them.

Thanks so much, April.  I love all of it.

I've received, and it's all *amazing* - thanks littlebluegirl! I'll be posting pics up imminently when I've managed to whittle them down to a reasonable number (I got a bit snap-happy and excited) Cheesy

Loving pretty much everything that's been featured in this gallery so far - oh the buttony wondrousness *sigh*

I was gonna take over the world but got distracted by something shiny

Bourgeois has made my day today! Wasn't having a very good week. I got excited when I opened the package!! Beware-----Picture overload ahead!
The colorful wrappings straight out of the package-

Cute card with a cute brooch!

Lovely bag, inside were cute magnets! (Bourgeois read my mind the other day, I was staring at my fridge and thought... I need stronger and cuter magnets!) I'm going to use the bag to keep my jewelry in when I am on the road, just need to find a plastic medicine box to store them all!

Another cute bag! Not sure what I will use it for, will find something-

Inside were buttons! On the upper left corner has my favorite.. what the heck, I love them all!! There was also two embroidery buttons!

I squealed when I saw this! Hedgehog embroidery hoop! LOVE it!

I was also thinking of making one of these for myself- well she surprised me with this!

She even threw in needles and pins! I always needed more!

Close up of the front of the needle holder- cute embroidery! I LOVE the buttons!

Next was the best find- I was chatting with KriSmith and Xandrigirly for tips on making polymer clay buttons the other day- Well, Bourgeois surprised me with 4 different button sheets- one of them, my heart melted- Hedgehog buttons! This rocks! She did great for the first time!!

Last photo- I LOVE this one too- a button tree!

Here's everything together-

Bourgeois- thank you for being a wonderful swap partner, and I really love everything- those handmade buttons are off limits to anybody else! It's all mine! I even have to find a wall section to put all my hoops up, I even finished a hedgehog one for myself!! I will post a photo soon when I put everything up!! I think we are lost friends somewhere because you've read my mind on those button magnets and the needle book!! This is an awesome swap so far, and hope another round will come up soon!! I still have 1 gallon and some baggies of buttons left!!


I am up for private swap for Teesha Moore patches!! PM me if  you are interested! :-D

Right, here are my goodies from littlebluegirl! It's pic-heavy I'm afraid...

The package when I first opened it, got a bit carried away opening the card before I remembered I was supposed to photograph everything

The card up close (me and littlebluegirl both love rainbows so this is amazing Smiley)

Look at all the little details on it!

Five different packages all beautifully wrapped with brown paper (how did you know I love brown paper?! lol), pink string and a pink button on each one.

First up: gorgeous little stacked button magnets - so cute

A little house keyring which is actually very timely cos I'm looking to move house imminently - this will be an incentive to get a new set of keys to use it on!

A knitted (?) cuff made from recycled silk, cotton and viscose, with toggle buttons - it fits *perfectly* Cheesy

A very clever knitted button cloth thing in a lovely bright pink-y colour (littlebluegirl, is this for decoration or practical use? I don't want to wreck it by using it for the wrong thing!)

Left the biggest package till last and squee-d even before I'd undone the bubble wrap:

How amazing is this! Just look at the buttony goodness *swoon* littlebluegirl based this on a piece of Tatty Devine jewellery that I've got on my Wists (that I've actually bought since I added it to the Wist). This box may well become my Tatty Devine/posh jewellery box Smiley

Then I looked inside the box and lo and behold there were more goodies!

These teeny fabric covered buttons (which I already have plans for)

and a cute little jar full of cool buttons! I can't choose my favourites Smiley


Maggie decided to try and get into that lovely wooden box (no chance!)

and weirdly me and littlebluegirl used almost exactly the same style of button stamps on our packaging!

It's all so lovely, thank you littlebluegirl!

Here are the pictures of my awesome stuff from aprilagain.

She sent a button ring, 3 pairs of earrings, and 4 bracelets.  I haven't taken the bottom one in the picture off except to take pictures.


They're all so pretty.

And of course, buttons.

I'm excited to figure out something to use the giant clear ones for.

Thank you again, April.

Button tree, I was really pleased how this turned out, might have to make another for myself  Smiley

Some of the buttons, smiley face one and a couple of corset ones

and the tote bag with button fabric
