One happy little boy, who wants the christmas tree up so his lego tree can go on it!

Deklan would like to say: 'thank you Cassidy! I love the things you made me  Cool'  And I'd like to say thank you too! You made some great stuff Smiley  Thank you tapestrymlp for letting your talented daughter join the swap!

Yay! So glad Deklan likes everything. I just have to say, while working on another swap today I lifted a piece of felt and found a green felt lego brick. "Oh no!" I thought, "Poor Deklan's tree is missing a lego block! Ack!" Then I realized it was the sample block I made to show Cassidy how, lol.

Cass had a lot of fun with the swap. As soon as she was done she wanted to know when the next swap is, lol, and if I can sign her up. She checks the mailbox everyday searching for craft goodies and every time we go to the craft store she starts pleading for new supplies - you know, just in case her next partner REALLY needs to have those sparkly princess stickers.

Also, thanks to making the treasure jar, Cass is now convinced she can modge-podge tissue paper onto ANYTHING and make it fabulous.

Oh, the crafting bug has bitten her hard, hasn't it?  That's so cute!  Deklan also asks for more craft supplies when we go to the store, he just can't get enough... And he refuses to throw anything away, because "we can craft it!"  lol  We are working on Cassidy's gift, his attention span is shorter then I wish it was.  but we are plugging away.  I think the ornament part will go quickly tho, once the _____ have dried Wink... Cassidy will find crafted wonders in her mail box soon I hope!

And Cassidy is right, modge podge and tissue paper makes everthing fabulous!

What a fun package!  Love the lego tree ornament.  Great job Cassidy!

Cassidy did a wonderful job!  My son would go crazy for the batman candle holder, and I think the card is very clever :-)

We've received! Hailey won't be able to open her package until later (maybe not till tomorrow), so pictures will follow after that! Cheesy

That lego ornament is so cool!

I'm almost always typing with one hand...

We received from Hailey AND Sarah (who in the Christmas spirit decided to send to both round robin partners)

From Hailey:
First up, a pop-up card (Chloe loved it and thought it was funny as she had made one, too)

A very good drawing of animals - Chloe thought the cat in a Santa hat was awesome.

Kitty cat felt ring and necklace on a string - was worn to school yesterday along with all the other felt accessories - dog bracelet and hair clip, and a turtle pin.

The ornament - a handy reindeer.  That's such a cute idea - I forget hands are more than for just making turkeys!

From Sarah -
A very cool fridge magnet.

White glove ornament.

The card - Chloe loved the felt decoration, she said it was so cute!

We had a great time swapping and Chloe truly loved her packages.  She had the most fun and I think I may have created a monster.  Although now she's nervous about whether her stuff will be liked!  Bless her heart, having swap anxiety at 8 years old!
