mama24boyz and I did a personal swap, since she didn't join the sock monkey swap.  She crocheted this sock monkey for me, and I made her son a Link sock monkey made from the Rockford Red Heel socks.  I hope she receives soon.

I've been craft bombed again by the superFABO BirdBones  Grin.  (The package I craft bombed her with is now around a month lost in space)  I also realized I didn't post her last package to me here, I posted it on the craftster scouts forum. So I'll post it here as well.

I just have to introduce my FABO new fuzzy friend....the Butterbearpus!!

When it first flew out of the package, it was a bit disorientated, and thus still enough for me to get a photo at least

I had only a moment to take a picture of the butterbearpus yawning.  After that it spent the rest of the night flittering around.  So I was able to get back to BB's package.

This is the pile of wrappers I found inside.  It seems the wee critters had gotten hungry on the trip over.  I'm glad BB put so much in, or the little things might have had to resort to eating each other....geeeeeehhh...I hope no critters are missing BB!  The did mange to leave me 4 pieces it turned out Grin

I'm going to show the amazing badges she has sent me....starting with the bunch I got as a sort of Bday package last May.

Aren't they FABOFABOFABO?!  I love them all so much.

Then here are the Badges she sent me this time.

It's a good thing this rounds badges were in a thick plastic envelope, because I found it sticking out of the mouth of the next critter out of the box!  I didn't manage to get a pick of that as I could hear a bit of a gagging sound.  Once I got the tiny package out of the "badge monster" mouth it shot a hand out and clearly wanted it back.  It was quite strong, but I did manage to get the plastic and badges away from the poor thing.  I gave it a banana and it calmed down greatly..

Can you believe it?  But we are not done yet.  Check out this beauty

The butterbearpus has decided that the purse is it's home.  I'm fine with that as the BBP seems a neat and tidy creature.

And there is STILL more.  Here are some inspiring crafting extras..really big googly eyes!!!!  Loads of sparkle pompoms, felt cupcake (probably doomed to a life as zombie cupcakes and things like that Grin) And some very sparkly fun shapes that I don't have.  I see antenna and legs Grin

This batch is assorted other cool things.  Lets see...the zebra dispenses gum from it's..uh...bum.  A cute dog covered pad of paper. Bakugan stickers.  An adorable blind envelope collectable bird.  A super cute collapsible hair brush with an adorable poodle!  Sqqqquuueeeee!!  Ray Mystirio Jr. pencil set.  She also sent an Undertacker set, the Hub snapped that one up as he sorta look like Undie Grin  A magnetic monster book mark.  A screen cleaner with cutypoo bird on it.  The mutant HK card that she altered for me (you are so CLEVER!!)  And some HK labels.  Enough to mark things in my craft room to help me when I get it organized Grin

This pic is from the May package.  Loads of ephemera!  Firstly is my altered Hell Kitty card.  You better be carefull BB...I might start to expect a spliced HK card from you....some house fronts.  They are super detailed.  I can't remember the sweet faced kids show from China's name at the mo.  But her stickers are super cute.  Then there are several sheets of medieval heraldic stickers.

You have out done yourself yet again BB!  I  Love it all but YOU most!  Grin

Oh, I am so glad the critters left you some of the candy at least Grin And I really hope you will be able to use what I've sent.. in fact, I'd really like to see if you can combine all of it into one of your glorious creations- and I am really curious to see some zombie-cupcakes!

A spliced HK? Is that a challenge I hear? *evil mad chainsaw-laughter ensuing* theeheee....

oh- but I hope that didn't scare off the package that is still on the way over here... I will put on some girly clothes and sit here nice and quiet and ladylike until it shows up... Oh, whom am I kidding? That'll never work,it will see right through the disguise. I am wondering what's taking it so long...

Amazing swap packages!!  So much fun...and those badges are just to die for! 

Thanks for sharing your technique with us...I can see lots of possibilities in the future to creat a lot more detailed badges...

I love the crafting with the adult beverage badge the best! Cheesy (probably because I can relate too well to that...) Cheesy

Today I received three wonderful felt badges from sewphie.  We agreed to swap badges based on stalking each other.  I love them all and can't choose a favorite!

I love cats of all kinds, but especially Siamese, because my family has two of them!  The felt pieces are so small, and the stitches are so tiny--I think sewphie must have used a magnifying glass to sew this one!

I'm all about sewing, and this badge got that right!  The tape measure marks around the edges are all sewn on!  Yes--that's right--those marks are not printed on there!  Look how the thread forms a heart, that is so me!

This is a "bonus" badge, since we only agreed to make two each.  She said she made me this Craftster Scout-style badge in honor of being one of the current featured swap organizers!  That is so awesome of you Sophie, thank you!  The felt is printed with silver sparkly decorations, and she decorated the wings on the envelope with gold thread.  I love the tiny heart button on the envelope!

Thanks for these amazing and meaningful badges, Sophie; you are a wonderful stitcher and swapper!

Wow! Truly amazing badges, sewphie! I love all the wonderful details on them! And the little heart-button on the envelope made me squeal Grin Lining the sewing-badge with something looking like a measuring-tape is a really cool idea and those mice are just incredibly cute!
