I just now found the gallery. I have been busy. I like the bowl covers, I just started some sauerkraut a couple days ago.

Ok, the bowl covers make a lot more sense to me now. Actually I like that idea a lot, since I'm always going through so many rolls of plastic wrap and tin foil. I guess if you made them out of PUL on both sides, you could probably write on them and wash your labels off later. Or I suppose you could sew a small strip of thick plastic (like from a shower curtain) on top. I may just have to make some!

Everything else looks so great! I love the book and bookmark--they're so colorful!

Woe!  The packages are looking a-mazing.  I'm starting to get a bit of swap anxiety...

Ill weave your names into my ribcage; lock your hearts inside my chest.
Regain the passion I once carried; do away with all the rest.
I tore the sickness from your bodies; smashed its head against the bricks.
I made a castle from its bones that you may always dwell in it.

I received from witchhippy today. I have to babysit tommorow so I'm glad it came today.

A new bag, I love this. It is so perfect withe the brown lining and ribbon belt. Definitely my new work bag.

beads and handmade paperbeads, I have seens some paper bead jewelry that I thought would be fun to make. The loafa/sponge should probably be in a pic with the soap.

A netted jar with wooden buttons. There is also a peace sign charm in therre too. I had a similar jar on my wist. I love that look. One of the blogs I read did a bunch of them in crochet.

I opened this cute drawstring bag to find bottle cap fire starters/emergency candles. I had these on my pinterest. I think they will look cute in a bowl until they are used. If I can bring myself to use them that is. Also the handmade soap that goes with the loofa. I haven't smelled it yet, but I love handmade soap.

She also sent a watergenie for my potted garden.

She is also sending an extra that she forgot to pack, so it doesn't end here.

I received a great package a couple of days ago. Sorry for the crappie pictures. I wanted to take them outside but it is raining so my dirty laundry room will have to do because it has the most light.
First up are these small pots for seeding. I love the way she decorated them with the moss.

Then I received this cute little wind chime.

Next are these cool as all get out plant markers to go with my seed pots.

She even sent me this old set of Celtic oracle card as an extra. They will be well used!!

And last but not least my fav:

I am new to sewing and I cant wait to be able to sew like this.

Thanks for everything yesmeine!!! Grin

I received from elisidora

I love everything. The large bag is in my van for storage and I love the crochet trees!!

* She also included a gnome but my lil'monster has staked claim and named him "ChiChi" I'll try and snag him and include a picture.  When I got the box it was sooo heavy - inside there was a giant bottle of peroxide, a box of baking soda and a bottle of vinegar and tons of cleaning tips.  Vinegar and baking soda will clean any thing!  We have a flat top stove and something boiled over and burned.  I tried everything to get it off- windex, flat top cleaner, comet.    I made a paste of baking soda and rubbed it in then poured vinegar over it and let it do it's thing, 5 minutes later, it all wiped up!!! I am getting rid of everything and buying stock in the three.  Thanks again!*

Here is the package I received from klg_jlg.
A wonderful set of pot holders

A pair of fingerless mitts (her first attempt ever to crochet, good job don't ya'll think)

And a pocket belt from a pair of her favorite jeans. I can see why they were your favorites, the fabric is so soft.

Thank you so much. They will be used.

The pocket belt is a very nifty idea!

I'm glad you liked the package Rosie

It was fun to knit a set of washcloths and other fun extras
I even designed my first pattern to make a gnome washcloth.

I also made my first plushie, a gnome. My husband says he looks evil but I like him.
