Here is the package I received from smileyyogini.

Here is a group shot of EVERYTHING! Please excuse the blur. I knew I wouldn't be able to hold the kids back for too long. My son put his little blue fluffy in the picture too just because.

All the goodies fit inside the AWESOME mockingjay draw-string bag. The bag is made from a nice soft t-shirt material with a pink mockingjay design crocheted onto the solid gray crocheted background. I've never seen anything like this is it so freaking cool!

Melody also included goodies for my boys: a mario kart eraser board, a Super hero Squad sticker book, a Spider-man paint set, and Iggy Moshi Monster McD's toy. Thank you thank you thank you! We missed when Iggy was released and my son was so sad about it. I've been looking everywhere for one and asking around. Melody found it for me.

She also sent some wonderful pieces of candy. The dark sea salt chocolate is my husband's favorite and she sent some pomegranate chocolate for me. I'm not sure but she must have checked out all the pomegranate from my Etsy favorites page.

Since I love paper crafts, she also include a tiny shaped punch for my collection.

Last but not least, she made the coolest Wonder Woman goodies!! An apron and a pair of fingerless gloves. It came just in time too. Weather was getting warmer than all of a sudden snow is falling and schools are closing.

Here are some close ups so you all can see the amazingness!

Great job Melody on your first swap! Wonderful job! I love everything!

The bag is great and I love the wonderwoman stuff too.  You did a great job smileyyogini.

Now for the amazing package I received from oath keeper.  She sent me some yummy candy that has disappeared with the kids Cheesy She made me two key chains one bobba fett and the other one the 11th doctor. We need fishfingers  Grin. A pair of snitch earrings and a lotr hair pin!

A water color painting of one of my favortie moments of Malcolm Reynold's from Firefly

And my favorite item a Harry Potter bust!

All the detail is amazing.  She said that she isn't good at human figures and she is so wrong.  She did great I love his expression and his glasses. He has already found a home with all my other Hp stuff.

Thank you so much Oath keeper I love everything you made and I would love to swap again. Wink

Yay! It arrived!!! There is always that little bit of nervousness when I put something in the mail. But I am very happy to see it got to you safe and sound. Smiley

The bag was an interesting journey. Originally it was supposed to be a crocheted bag. It was my first tunisian and when it was finished it was alot taller than it was wide and making a bag from it would have been really inconvenient to use. So, I asked EVERYONE I know what I could possibley do with the panel and then the drawstring backpack idea came to me.

The gloves are something I duped from Etsy. I just loved them the second I saw them.

I came across the super hero fabric at the store and just had to try my hand at making an apron out of it. I noticed you had some aprons pinned on pinterest. Wink

The rest is just some fun stuff I came across while shopping and collecting my supplies. I really enjoyed getting to know you and crafting for you.

Holy Wonder Woman!!  Shocked Gone for a day and look what happened!  Grin The gallery exploded!

   I'm so SOOO impressed with the Grimmjow. I mean, seriously chughes----are you perfect at EVERYTHING first time around?  Grin And I'm SO HAPPY that Oath got at least one of her original characters crafted for her! I KNEW chughes, if anyone, could do it! YAAAAYYY!!!!!
   Those wonder woman cuffs are AMAZING!!! And I can't even wrap my head around that crochet panel O_O All the little extras are very thoughtful too!
    That LOTR hair pin looks so delicate and beautiful! Is it clay? It looks like marble it's so perfect. I LOVE it! And HARRY POTTER has never looked better!  Cheesy He just fits right in with that awesome collection!

   OH MY GOSH LADIES!!! I'm so excited and impressed!!!  Shocked

Chughes really is great at everything the first time around IsikkahJai. And I am indeed very happy my partner was willing to craft something for me that came out of my own head Cheesy And to answer your question, yes the hair pin is made of clay. A mix of super sculpey and sculpey III for some flexibility and strength. It looks like that because I hit it with two different green shimmer powders. It makes clay things look amazing Smiley and dyes your fingers the color you're using and glittery for two days after you use it Tongue lol.

Haha, I'm glad Harry earned a spot in your collection Chughes Smiley And I feel the need to say, I have that Harry Potter owl pillow! Only mine isn't that white anymore lol.

Also, my mom would FLIP for that Wonder Woman apron and that glove set. Very nice job.

Um.  This IS a 4-point swap, correct?  Because I've only made 4 points worth of stuff and it looks like everyone else has made more.

Anyway, great stuff and if there was ever a time for swap anxiety now would be it.

Yeah I wrote down that it was  a 4 point swap and to only do 4 points... 4 points is so not enough lol. I always go over when swapping. I get so caught up in it that I can't stop Cheesy

You guys are so sweet. I loved crafting for oath keeper original characters. She sent me little bits from her storys and i wanted to know more. She has a very nice writing style that flows. She was able to describe the characters so well i could see them. The bigest challenge was that she wasn't there to correct me on how she sees him compared to how i see him. But i loved the challenge. Wink

I can never stick to the points either there are always extras Cheesy

I Will NEVER EVER put "No extras" in my organized swaps  Wink But I do warn partners to communicate about sending extras. I got so spoiled on a couple of my swaps and didn't send nearly enough in return and felt like a fail crafter  Undecided I don't want anybody else to ever feel that way >.<

  I received my package from dfabbric!! Unfortunately she's gone on a cruise atm so I can't ask her to post her excellent quality pictures but I'll be uploading some crappy cell pics in the sunlight tomorrow. I LOVE IT! She combined my two favorite things in the world--- drawing and NOTE CARDS! <3 <3!! She drew every single character on my list. Each one has it's own separate note card with wonderful little embellishments. EEEK!! THEY ARE NEVER EVER GOING TO BE USED FOR ANYONE BUT ME! >.>    <.<    >.>

  Wall art, they will become <3 ^^ Good, it is <3 ^^

      She also sent me the cutest Mary Crawley felt Doll (from Downton Abbey, BBC show). When she complained about not having enough of a challenge from me I threw her a curve ball and she threw it right back with perfect aplomb! XD Love you D!
