My partner sent me a huge box of goodies for me and the gerbils. Only one item didn't make it the shipping. I took lots of pictures.

After opening....


Toys for the gerbils


Sweets for me and my bf. Never seen these peeps before.


Homemade chocolate. Yumm!!!


Bunny and towels for me. Hammocks for the gerbils. Garden sticks. That is so cool!


I think that is everything.

So glad you liked everything! The gerbil toy was a house, basically  5 pretzels high by 4 sided square-ish with the pretzels  with the craft sticks as a  roof. I accidentally didn't save the close up, but it is in the group shot to the right of the bunny.

I received from quaggy this afternoon.   Shocked  A box big enough to fold up my 12 yo and put her in.   Grin  THERE...ARE...NO...WORDS!   Shocked Shocked Shocked

Here goes:

Said box!

Amazing bunny and decorated egg banner!  (Did you decorate ALL those eggs TOO???!!!)  A beautiful wreath bunny for the door!

Sewn bunny bag and supplies!  (Has anyone EVER seen a sewn bunny bag?  I hadn't till now!  How cute!)

Another bunny bag and bunny spool decorations!  Another thing I've never seen till now!

A sewn carrot bag!  (A new one, again, for me-how adorable!) And LOTS of green buttons!  I love 'em!

ANOTHER bag  Grin Shocked and colored sprinkles for us to use on DD's bat mitzvah cake next month!  (DD's theme is 'rainbow' and quaggy sent all the colors of the rainbow in sprinkles!)  The saying on the cup makes me LOL!  Cheesy

ANOTHER bag  Wink and Easter candy!

MORE candy and ANOTHER bag!  Wink

I'm going to post this and start another...my computer has been acting squirrely and I don't want to lose this...

I'm back!  Here goes:

Carrot bag with nifty hangers!  (These will come in handy when I gelli print and need to hang up my prints.)

Bunny bag and washii tape!  Love the colors!

A wood 'Easter', an Easter mugrug, and a lovely fabric surrounded by a doily item...so beautiful!  (There is a wood 'Happy' in another photo, I opened them out of order.  I LOVE how bright the colors are in the mug rug!)

A different, decorated 'Happy Easter' sign that can hang, and a HUGE bag of Easter themed gummies!  (Do you see the size of that bag??!!  Do ya?  Do ya?  Grin)

And....EVEN MORE GOODIES!  Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked  (There were several carrot or bunny cardboard, triangle shaped, boxes used in this package too...so different!)

This item IMMEDIATELY went up on my livingroom wall!   Kiss Kiss Kiss Kiss  (Quaggy, we are all wondering-did YOU sew all those sequins on yourself??!!)

An Easter/carrot tree!  (I didn't open up the branches b/c I don't have the Easter decorations out yet, and I wanted to put it away for a week or two.)

This is the Easter basket-WRAPPED up like this IN THE BOX!!!!!!!!!!!! Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked

...and opened!

The wooden 'Happy' to go with the 'Easter' and even more goodies!

posting again....

And STILL MORE...

...more goodies!  Cheesy
...more and more...!
And ONE LAST THING...

A table runner...Easter themed...LOOK AT THE COLORS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I apologize for the slightly messy photos.  I got the package about 20 minutes before my DD got home from school and once I realized that there were things in there for her, I wanted to get the photos done and items put away quickly, before she could see.

Ok...we are ALL aware of Quaggy's EPIC talent and EPIC generosity.  But I feel the need to point it out again.  She sent enough for me and my family.  It's like she took my pinterest board for this swap, and created EVERYTHING for me!  Shocked  And take note of things like the cardboard bunny "boxes"...I don't know if it shows in the photos, but on all the white ones, she glued a little pom-pom bunny tail to the back!  Most of us would probably think the boxes were enough and yet quaggy ALWAYS goes the extra mile to make EVERYTHING she makes and sends SPECIAL!  I don't have words...

Thank you from the bottom of my heart, quaggy!  Kiss Kiss Kiss Kiss Kiss Kiss Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Shocked Shocked Shocked

Thanks for the great photos and quick post.  here are a few action shots

Carrot tree with wooden spool rabbits.



wooden half egg  rabbit magnets
and wooden painted bunny and eggs





and the bunny egg bunting....no I did not paint the eggs just made the bunnies from burlap and project cardboard.




I think this was my favorite thing I made.  I have never made one of these before.  I used buttons on the sides to attached the handle so that it was moveable and could be laid down.  Made my hands tired as it is all hand sewn!
