FeliciaSlayDCRG - That states hoopla with the quote is extremely clever. Love the pressed flowers too. The mad lids are cool. My kids and I LOVE Adventure Time.

NisforNeville - beautiful job on that necklace.

plaidpineapple - totally envious of that bowl. And, I'm going to have to hunt for some jello molds like that to make plaster of paris figures. My boys love Monsters Inc.

SmileyYogini - Love all the monster goodies. Those buttons and coin pouch are super cute.

Kittykill - So glad you liked everything. Sorry I didn't wrap up the ornaments that good. I thought they'd be okay in the game box but that is probably how they got smashed.

I received my awesome package from Lindyv yesterday Smiley

All the goodies:

We have favorite craft supplies: scrapbook and altered supplies used for shrines and inchies and tacky glue. I'm a big fan of paper and paper-related crafts

Favorite candy and gum which I didn't take separate pics of but you can see Reese cups (yum) and gum.

Craft it - A cute mini shrine with a bird and a bracelet made with memory wire. I love them both.

Hobbies: Game of Thrones which I've been wanting to read and a tardis bookmark (I'ma huge Doctor Who fan)

And cute little tin of whimsies

closer to home:
arizona stuff and Arizona Cardinal koozie

Cat toys!  my kitties love them. and a cute little booklight.

I've really enjoyed this swap so far.

I received a super fun package from Sticker/Beth yesterday, but I was very pressed for time and wasn't able to take pictures and post about them.  So here they are now!

Hobbies: Reading.  She made me three different styles of bookmarks, which is very handy, because I can never seem to find mine.  They always end up in my son's bedroom, because he NEEDS them.  She also sent me the first book from her favorite book series, which I have not read yet.  I'll be starting on this as soon as I get through the library books stack, I have, since those have due dates.   Undecided

Closer to Home: Local.  Beth sent me postcards and a magnet from her favorite vacation spot in Michigan, that she went to a few weeks ago.  She also got me a bunny cookie cutter, bc I love bunnies.  Looks like I'll be making bunny cookies soon.  Cheesy

Favorites: Craft supplies.  She sent me a little stack of goodies for this one.  A purple fat quarter, some paper crafting supplies (Which I've never attempted, until I made her little tags for her package), and a sewing gauge, which as long as I've been sewing, I've never had one, so I'm interested to see how this will help my projects.

Hobbies: Collecting.  Beth collects tiny houses.  She loves them.  She even at one point organized a swap for them.  She made me a tiny house zipper pouch.  This is probably my favorite piece, because its very "her".  Its so pretty, and also includes that scrappy feeling, that she likes to use.  I can be much too impatient to scrap, so when I do it, its no where near as nice as this.

Closer to home:  Holiday.  Her favorite holiday is Christmas, and she made me a tiny stocking ornament.  Everyone in my little family picks/makes a new ornament each year to add to the tree, so this year, mine is already taken care of.  The little snowmen are adorable.

Craft it:  Fabric.  A keychain wrist strap!  I can't wait to add this to my keys.  She made herself one of these also, so we match now.  Smiley

Favorites:  Season/accessory.  Beth's favorite season is fall and winter, because she gets to wear hats and scarves.  This is also the very first hat she's crocheted, so its extra special.  She did an awesome job with it, and I can't wait to see what new hats she'll progress onto, after this one.

Craft it:  Paper.  Papercrafting, is Beth's main craft.  Its what brought her to Craftster in the first place.  She's great at it, and truthfully I don't know how she even thinks to take something so simple as paper, and make it pretty.  I don't possess the "paper" genes I guess.  Wink  But I do like notecards, and gift tags, so I can't wait for an occasion to use these that she made for me.

Ok...third times the charm...yeah? IE has kicked me twice for trying to post this.

I received from Gozer!!! OMG...awesome package. I just fell in love with one thing after another.


First up...the prettiest necklace in the whole wide world. And just in case my wild lifestyle ( I have a toddler ) breaks it...she told me what I can use to repair metal. Im optimistic, but I like to be prepared.

And this wristlet is INCREDIBLE. We both love unicorns and this fabric could not be more perfect. The sewing is perfect and it is lined in pretty white cotton fabric.

We both love morbidity in the kitchen. This is my first decoration for my new kitchen in Texas. Im so excited!!! How cute is this potholder? And we are both listmakers...and love monsters. So this notebook cover is just perfect. I love it. Its nice and bright so I can find it in my purse.

Gozer made me get into Monster High dolls. And now she is enabling me. She sent me Frankie and she is SO pretty. Operetta is next up. Today I bought them some outfits. Its never-ending, really. LOL But I love her! My son and I both squealed when we saw her. And she sent a cute little MH card.

mmmmm Candy!!! my favorites!!

We both love making/receiving ATCs. She made me 3! They are just perfect. Beautiful artwork. She sent me two unicorns and our favorite...Edward Scissorshands. <3 She is majorly in love with Little Red and made me this awesome shadowbox fridge magnet. Inside looks just like a scene from the book. Its incredible.

Here is a group shot!! I love it all. Thank you SO much. I cant wait to exchange package #2 with you. This inspired lots more ideas. I was a little stuck in my shell. But Im inspired to branch out a bit. Its going to be lots of fun!

Everyone is sending such great stuff!  I had a hard time putting together the first package but have so many ideas for the second especially since I received such a great package from geekgirl1001000!!! 

For Craft it she made me one of her fabulous doodles and framed it

and these gorgeous quilled notecards.  She said quilling was one of the first crafts she learned how to do

Reading!  I think it's great we both sent each other a book from one of our favorite series for our hobbies

Her favorite craft supplies which she uses when she makes her doodles

Closer to Home:
A Thanksgiving hoop because Thanksgiving is her favorite holiday

and one of her fave books from when she was a pre-teen, A Wrinkle in Time along with paper beads made from an old copy of the same book

Then she also sent me some awesome beads, a ton of random ephemera (some which is hand painted and I have already used) and some snacks!  Her favorite tea, some soy & wasabi almonds, and caramel cookies.

and this awesome Dr. Who mug!  Carlee did you paint this?? 

Thank you so much for such a thoughtful package!  I can't wait to get started on my 2nd box to you!
