Willing to personal swap for art of my doggies!

OMG - I opened my package today, and the first thing I saw was a little black painted doggy with a halo and heart wings and my heart stopped - my Secret Swapper sent me TOBY!!!!  My darling dearly missed doggy!!!  It brought tears to my eyes - then I saw the that it was of all three of my doggies, Toby in heaven, and Ginger and Troy.  OMG - this was soooooooooo very special to me!!!!

I love the entire package, but this is the piece that really squeezes my heart so tight it hurts!  DH is going to love it too!

Look at his sweet little wings!  I love the grin on his face - he was always a happy smiling dude (except during his baths of course!)  I love it - there are just no words to really express how much I love it!  BTW - the goofy happy look on the second black dog's face - that is TOTALLY the expression I usually see on Troy's face!

As if this wasn't enough, she also sent a gorgeous hoop - I love leaves and the Fall especially.  This one was inspired by the quote, "Autumn is the second spring when every leaf is a flower" - which is great because I have used that quote for making a fall leaf set of cards in the past, and I do love it!

And look at these adorable tags and notecards - too adorable to share - almost!

I am almost tempted to keep one of the hearts to make as a resin pendant - I love the cheerful colours.

She also sent some awesome extras - a gorgeous cotton/bamboo yarn - perfect for a light lacy scarf, since I can't wear wool around my neck, and a chili chocolate - I adore chili chocolate.  The extra bonus is that DH HATES it - so I don't even have to share!!!

... can you guess who my awesome awesome Swapper was???  

... and yes - it was all obviously made with love!  Thank you so much!!!!!!!!

So so gorgeous, love the story behind the dogs Smiley
I receive my parcel from jemimah Smiley I have got 2 clients this morning - then I will upload pics and show you all my fabulousness Smiley

On a side note - I'm so worried about my parcel. It feels like its been "on it's way" for such a long time !!! In fact it's been a whole month !!!!!! The uk post service won't even check it until its been lost for 48 days Sad - if it's MIA, I will be making up another.


LATEST project - I'm compiling a "handed down" recipes boom and so if I get you in a swap, would you be so kind to find a recipe from your childhood. type it up - if you want to decorate, then please do :

what a killer package!  So much thought!

P_E_S_T, that's really frustrating!!

Thank you so very much!!!!!!  And....who was my stalker? Well, I would tell you how I knew who it was, but that might spoil someone else's surprise  Wink sooo....my stalker was ewolutta!!!! You are wonderful! Thank you again!!

I'm glad the package arrived sound and safe ... and quickly! And I'm happy you like the things I made.

By the way, I have a pair of those slippers myself - received them in a MAF swap some years ago and so loved the pattern that I had to buy it and make slippers for, well, everyone Cheesy

I'll swap for postcards, badges, maps or brochures from everywhere in the US! I'm an English teacher and always happy about authentic material for my classroom.

Amazing package, LimeRiot! The tribute painting is such a beautiful gesture!

Oh, P_E_S_T ~ I'm so sorry to hear that - how stressful!

pjr107 - so glad that you like your items! Smiley

So many gorgeous things in this swap!  Some of my favorites since the last time:  the beaded bird hoop, rodeo pillow, #10 Doctor hoop, slippers and the dog painting.  Such a talented group!  And just think, there's still more to come!
