I think I ended up with 4 or 5 themes in the box I sent but most bl;ended with the Halloween theme so it worked out well.
 I like Halloween too so I enjoyed crafting for my partner.
 Can't wait to see more packages

Wow, that's some amazing stuff! I made a Jack doll for my last swap so I'm extra impressed at how fabulous this Jack is - he's a hard guy to capture! And that coffin! And the shower curtain rings - I'd NEVER thought of decorating those but look how fantastic they are! Gorgeous painting on that wallet, too. Love it all!

I'm so glad I waited until after I sent my package to check this thread - there's just too many intimidatingly good creations here! Fantastic job all!

And my package got sent yesterday. I hope my partner likes hers as much as you all like yours!

Home Depot is my happy place.

So, I received from my wonderful partner legatostroke. I gave 7 themes to work with and made a pinterest board full of things specifically to inspire for this swap. She touched on pretty much every theme and like I told her, every time I pulled something out of the box I think I gasped because I was so much in love with each thing. So onto a bunch of pictures, because I received a bunch of things.

This was straight off my pinterest, except instead a USA map, she personalized it and made it a FL map.

Four adorable little stuffies, touching on my "animals who don't get enough love" theme. Super aww to the armadillo.

These two owl things fit my home decor perfectly. The wood burned owl is very impressive.

These pictures not only take from my "birdsy-owls" theme, but mustard yellow is my favorite color and "vintage" was another one of my themes, so it really felt like I got a little of everything here.

Jewelry that all seemed very pinterest inspired. Here my vintage or maybe "organic", "favorites", and "nintendo" theme were all represented. GOSH, I just love those pizza earrings. I'm known to eat pizza sometimes 3 times a week, so these are just perfect.

A gorgeous trinket holder. Big gasp item, considering I've been eying a practically identical item at a local art store lately.

Stamps! This may have received the biggest reaction out of me, since the sloth stamp in particular is right off of my pinterest. So cute. Love love love.

An armadillo tote bag! I do not need to explain why this is so great.

AND a pickle pin. This may have been just silly filler, but I file it under my "bizarre" theme. A pickle pin is one thing I never knew how much I wanted until now.

Sorry, it's pic heavy, but I really just loved everything and wanted each thing to get up close attention.

next is turtles -- a turtle ornament (one of the arms broke off, but it will be an easy glue fix), a turtle book mark, a turtle pincushion, & a little turtle figurine

next up is nativity & Lutheran rose -- a very cool framed 3-d nativity & an embroidered Lutheran rose towel Smiley

harry potter!!  a very very awesome harry potter glass mug, a hogwarts journal, & a snitch bracelet

In 1893, H. J. Heinz was in a "pickle" because his Heinz booth at the Chicago World's Fair wasn't getting much attention. His plan to attract attention was to offer, what was then, a pickle charm to hang around your neck. Back then, the idea of advertising by people wearing your logo was a very revolutionary idea and today it is both one of the longest-running and most successful promotions in history.
