Milkeway chose a couple of interesting subjects from my pinterest.

An Alice-themed shadowbox!

A Perchta, or winter nature spirit.  She wears (fake)fur and a little mask  I love this a lot!   Cheesy

Here she joins the cavemen on my solstice wreath!

Thank you milkeway!   Kiss

I don't have a means to post pictures, but wanted to share here, as well. My swap partner will post as quick as she gets time to.

I just recieved from Bobbysgirl...I wanted to wait to open it, but just could not help myself. And squeee. She spoiled me. First off the mat, are the gifts for my kids. She did not wrap these, but they are wonderful all the same. 4 wonderful stuffies for the little ones. Assorted colors in sort of the goofy monster theme. Adorable, and very well stitched and detailed from felt, and other embellishments.

Also three crochet pieces {dang is she good at that}. One is a blue mask...Batman??? Two look to be possible kitty toys, but I might hang them on my tree this year. A pokemon ball, and a variagated octopus. All exceptionally well stitched, and wonderful.

She also included a stationery set for my older daughter in the Harry Potter theme that daughter loves.

Then I started opening mine. Here is where I really squeeeeeee. My favorite movie is Labrynith...and she croched me a worm. My favorite part of the movie! He is a pretty good size, so I will make room here at my computer for that detail. So adorable, and so well crochet-ed. And the eyes are plastic, and inset to the stitching. Looks like felt around them. So cute!

Then, she painted me a picture from another favorite movie...IT, by Stephen King. I got the crazy clown! Looks like she did some wood burning with it, and then added some paint details. Totally awesome. She really captured the image exactly! He is spooky...just as he should be! 

Last ones, just now opening...totally hillarious...A SPONGE BOB TOTE, crochet. He is absolutely adorable. I cannot get over her skills with the hook. Her stitches are so even, and well placed. For having three kids, including her little one, I don't know how she can focus on projects like this. Amazing.

But that is not all, there is another wrapped gift inside the tote. Har, har, har. A fabric sponge bob wallet, that says, "It's all good". So totally cool.

I don't know how to thank you enough, Erica...you have made my holiday way richer with your kindness and skills.
Please post the photos so everyone else can drool and be jealous. And get neat ideas, and ask to be your trade partner. You are a wonderful swapper. I hope my package gets to you soon, and you are happy with it, as well. I am overjoyed! Thank You

Received from Ryn yesterday.

Holy hell this bad boy is amazing. She took my love of board games and combined it with my love of Game of Thrones to make... wait for it...

Ticket to Ride: Westeros Edition

I know - you're jealous right? Because you should be.

I can't wait to try it out.

Ludi- I'm glad the little Perchta found a home with you Smiley

stillatthetop- I hope your partner can post pics, I would love to see these items!

birdak- WOW that is amazing!!! I love Ticket to Ride, and I can't believe she made that! Totally jealous  Wink

Here are the items I sent to stillatthestop. First is a group shot of all the little extras (the half human half dinosaur foot in the corner belongs to me though)-

Next is a wood burning of Pennywise, but it looked to plain so I added the color to it-

The Spongebob tote and little pouch -

And the Worm from Labyrinth (following the tutorial postedon craftster by Foxyblue)-

I'm so glad you liked everything stillatthetop. I also received an awesome package from her today, but since there were two wrapped items for my older kids that won't be home until tomorrow, I'm waiting until then to post pictures of everything together. Let me just say in advance - it's wonderful!! [img]

I'm glad you like it birdak! I really hope it's playable. I've never designed a board game before, haha. I received today and love it! I mentioned to birdak that I was thinking of starting a stamp collection and she delivered!

Marceline, X-Men and Mr.Pointy (Buffy!) So many things I love. They're awesome.

The Alice Shadowbox is so inspiring, I wish I had that talent.  Cool
