So, I just came back from my 15 yr anniversary vacation and as if THAT gift wasn't enough, I also found an awesome present in my mailbox!!! Smiley My swap sender, aada sent me exactly what I needed to survive the crazy SF biking weather (Please excuse the miscellaneous vacation items in the background):

2 cowls, a hat, some gloves, and very pretty tissues! May I add that you got the colors perfect!!! These will go with all of my outfits! Some closeups:

Look at her amazing work on this cowl! so soft and perfect length!

This one has reflective piping - can't wait to wear this at night - I will have to keep an eye on it... I can see this being usurped by a number of my bike friends Smiley

And thank you so much for this wonderful hat - I actually need one in this exact color - I've been needing to have one that goes with my cream colored coat... perfect!

Thank you soooo much! I hope you are equally spoiled!

I received a fabulous package from missmlissa.  Check out the sweet stuff she sent me!

Embroidery hoop, necklace, small zip up pouch, a really awesome frame with a dude on a unicycle, a toy bicycle, and 'che' dog card.  I love everything!!!  Seriously!

...but wait, there's MORE!

A headband made from recycled bicycle tires and a pair of knitty fetching wristwarmers that I've been wanting for as long as I can remember.  I've gotten a few pairs in the past, but they were either too bulky, fell apart, or the wrong color.  THESE ARE PERFECT!

action shot of the wearable stuff.  Look how friggin' excited I am!

Let's not forget a close-up shot of the neat little hoop.  Already have this up on my hoopla wall.

and the toy bike! I'm a total sucker for stuff like this.

Missmlissa, you are the BEST!

The headband and toy bike are awesome! I received and need to post pics! Ipod is charging right now so I can get some shots tomorrow and get them up!

I got my package from ollieorange and it is freakin FANTASTIC! I actually got it at the beginning of the week but my husband hijacked the camera. Grrrr. So many things, and they are allllll awesome.

First up we have the tank top with appliqued hearts made of bicycle print fabric.

It fits perfectly btw and teal is one of my fav. colors.

Next up we have some reflective pant tie downs. They are reversible: 1 side rainbows, the other reflective.

A cool oilcloth clutch/handlebar bag

A customized bicycle licence plate with my craftster name!

She included a bunch of goodies in with the handmade items too!
A bicycle magnet and hand painted charm

And a bandana printed with bike routes in her hometown. The yellow polka dotted flap goes over the back tire to prevent mud butt.

Thanks Ollie, I'm in love with everything!

I received from Karizmatic the other day! Here's my loot! (the candle, medicine, little house and tupperware aren't from the swap!  Cheesy)

More detailed shot of the bags. For some reason I can't get the detail shot of the arm warmers to upload!

I need to find a bigger belt for the hip bag, the one you made is way to small for these midwestern hips! The handlebar bag is a basket bag now- it works perfect to stick in my basket- then I don't have to worry about my things bouncing out of the back!
Thank you!

Great bike swag Grin
I especially love the bike heart tank and the arm warmers!

And Sinellia, the headband looks so cute on you!  I'm glad you like it.

Awesome packages. I especially love the headband- it's really creative and beautiful!
