Personal things like this make me tear up a tad, and it was incredibly thoughtful of racky to have painted two of your beloveds. Phenomenal artistry, rackycoo!!!

I think Beatrice needs a portrait too. Don't you agree?  Cheesy

She made me tear up a bit, too.  And yes, my favorite and very photogenic sheep Beatrice might need a portrait some day, too.   Cheesy

Ahhh, I keep forgetting to check the gallery!  This gallery is overflowing with awesomeness!

I can definitely attest to the fact that Ludi's intricate embroidery is just as impressive in person as it is in the gallery.  Absolutely!

I see a lot of major spoilage going on, and quite a few extras that are fit for a cabinet of curiosities!

Those ceramic button are absolutely gorgeous!  And I love the circus dolls!  I think the bee diorama book thingy is my favorite though.

Erhma GERD!  That is a painting??  WOW!  I thought it was a photo till I read it was a painting.  And the bee shrine is epic.   And who doesn't love a box of fun bits and bobs Grin

What is there to say...??  Huh I'm seriously in awe! Rackycoo, I have mentioned it before, but you rock!! Oh man, the things you can make with paper, clay, paint... Is there anything that you can't craft? Superwoman, I'm telling you!

That bee shrine is so beautiful! And it lights up?!  Shocked Wow!!
I agree with the others that the painting of Bindi is so perfect! You could have fooled me too, telling me it is a photo.
Oh yes, please a portrait of Beatrice, that would be awesome!
All the bits and stuff... Oh wow, just wow!

I think I need at least 20 rounds of IYP's to swap with all you crafty, awesome Craftsters!
(not that I dare ask you all, but nevertheless..)

Woohoo for this GREAT gallery!  Cheesy

Okay folks, prepare your eyes for a feast of goodness!  I was very blessed to have P_E_S_T hear my calling for a partner and to have her answer it, for she has been a superb partner and I feel a wonderful kindred connection with her!  YAY for this IYP swap, my first!  Won't be my last I shall think! 
First let me link to her post about this unique book she made me:

I haven't participated in the prayer flag swaps but I love what I see... she had a sewing mishap and being the inventive recycling upcycling goddess that she is, she created me a prayer flag book!  I will put my fave pics here but visit her link for more!

LOVE this owl night sky one
This is so neat, love the mended pages and color
Like the 3D quality to this girl and the deep red
The awesome end piece!!!! my fave

next for my love of gnomes she felted me a wee one who decided to make his home in a tree, I am to hang him from my ceiling somewhere... so he can look down about the place

I was so very happy and squealed with delight at these happy wee pixies aloft on their dragonfly steeds!!!!  I LOVE DRAGONFLIES... so very cute, and nature inspired and decorated... love the wee braided hair!

Lastly she made me a painting inspired by her sons's fave school song:

What you don't see here is some cool homemade papers she sent as well as two lovely tourist collector London spoons for my daughters spoon collection!  She graciously gave me her pics to post since I had been busy painting and attending appointments this week and headed back to work now this coming week... thank you partner for being tremendously wonderful!

What a lovely altered book! And those wee folks on the dragonflies are adorable.  Smiley

MW, I love the picture of Bindi with her portrait. That photo just made my day! Maybe someday, Beatrice will get the recognition she so deserves.

I love all of these works by rackycoo, and the altered book by P_E_S_T is gorgeous.  I especially like the dimensional page.

So much great stuff!!! Now I get to show off the amazing goodies I received from my pal Calabaza. Grin

First up, this fantastic ship hoop inspired by my pinterest! This was my husband's fav item. I cant wait to hang it up with the rest of my hoops!

(And I have to show you guys how she added a way to hang it on the back...a chain! Ive never seen this idea before. Super clever!)

THREE perfect bracelets! I love each one so much and they all fit perfectly. Smiley
This one is braided leather and has hammered pennies each stamped with different things I love...The Beatles, Austen, etc. So cool!

The top one here is braided denim with a little embroidery. I love the clasp on this one too! The bottom one is braided fabric and ribbon with a button closure. Perfect colors too!

What is this you ask?...

Only the coolest exploding needlebox EVER!

How awesome is this thing?? She included all the goodies too! I cant get over how well made and clever this is. C really outdid herself with this thing! I LOVE it! Cheesy

Here is a journal she picked up and redid the center part so I can slide in a photo if I wish.

And a beautiful set of FQs that I cant wait to get in to, but also have to wait for the perfect project. Wink

Thanks so much, C! I love everything as always and cant wait to use everything. Smiley Thanks for being my partner again. Grin
