I received from Frankie (Averia's daughter) and Wowee is it fantastic!! Shocked

Here is the whole lot. A lovely warm scarf (there may be fights over this when it gets cold!), a beautiful tie dyed shirt that will be perfect for my niece, some sun catchers that will go on the window above my kitchen sink, a magnet that is already on my fridge, an embroidered quote in a hoop, an amazingly stitched needle book, a coffee cozy and a bag that is soap with a lizard in it!

I got this amazing hoop with one of my favorite quotes on it - this is going in my craft room!

This is the needle book that has the awesome skull on the front, aren't these pins fantastic!

I have a serious coffee addiction so this caffeine molecule coffee cozy is perfect!!

This is such a fun thing! It is a bag with a lizard in the soap! It is hard to see but I tried to get a shot of the lizard, the kids have not yet seen this but I expect there to be a fight over it!

Frankie - I felt privileged to be able to make you a package but I am certainly even more privileged to have received from you!

I'm so glad you like your package from Franki and me! btw, the urban threads logo on the needle book glows in the dark. Franki's idea, not mine! Cheesy Thank you again for being our replacement partner!!!

I can't help but share, the scarf was done entirely on the knifty knitter. Franki is a whiz with that thing. Being someone with absolutely no knitting or crochet skills, I am amazed at what it allows kids to make.

While our swap package was delivered, Autumn hasn't been able to get it yet because of some family difficulties. So I'll go ahead and post some pics as it's been a few weeks since this was sent.

First a group shot of all the items together (more detailed pics will be below)

The swap package we sent included a mixed-media princess painting, Princess Peach trinket box, Fairy Monster t-shirt, Pokemon stickers, bead bracelet, toilet paper roll crown, toilet paper roll cuff bracelet, and a skirt I put together from 3 different bargain bin t-shirts.

Mixed-Media Princess Painting

This is an 8x10 painting. Cassidy painted the background, I drew the princess image on paper and Cass painted it with watercolors. We glued it to the canvas and then I finished it off by adding some ribbon pannels to the skirt, a bit of gold ribbon as a necklace and some gold detailing on the princess's crown. To jazz up the background a little we took a stamp, some embossing ink and brush on gold powder to make it all shiny.

Toilet Paper Roll Crown & Cuff Bracelet

Cass took a toilet paper roll tube as the base, cut it in half, and then added construction paper, ribbon and a TON of self-adhesive jewels to make this fun little crown. The bracelet uses part of the left-over toilet paper tube as the base and is covered in craft felt. Cass cut out and assembled the flowers and mommy manned the hot glue gun.

Fairy Monster t-shirt

Target has these fun iron-on t-shirt kits. You get a monster base and lots of different pieces to decorate it. Cass had a blast designing her monster and picking out eyes and such. I created the words for the shirt using my Silhouette cutting machine and some flocked heat press material. The monster is fuzzy as well.

Princess Peach Trinket Box

Cassidy decorated the box with glitter glue and adhesive jewels and she picked out the Princess Peach image for us to use. I drew Peach on and painted her.

3 T-shirt Skirt

This is the one I'm most proud of Cheesy I took three bargain bin t-shirts, cut them up and created a skirt for Autumn. One t-shirt had a Cherry Cola design, another a pattern of cherries and the third was mostly light pink. I cut the shirts into strips and use one strip for the band, added some ribbon, sewed the other strips together, gathered, hemmed and voila one twirly skirt. Cass wants one of her own now.

Hopefully Autumn likes the things in her swap package. We had a lot of fun creating them and working together!

Wonderful package! I love the skirt and the very cool painting!

Great package!  This mama doesn't paint.  Or draw.  Or anything else requiring artistic ability. lol

There is some great creativity there.   Way to go, Cassidy!
