I am going to start this gallery off with an avalanche of planty goodness! Because some people *cough*- Laura -*cough* do not know the meaning of one medium and one small. Seriously, look at this giant pile of packages!


Everything was neatly wrapped in colour appropriate tissue and strung together with string and tape. Numbered too!

K, first up is this full sized binder pocket insert. It is honestly the cutest cacti fabric in the universe. You did an awesome job with the stitching and the GROMETS! Beautifully done my friend.


Inside the pouch was something I love to receive because I like sending a nice card with swap items and these are gorgeous. I was tempted to include a photo of each one individually but that would make this a VERY long post, lol.


Next up are these really cute embossed tags, one shows what's on the back of all of them. And the clear window pouch? I know a daughter who would love that but she is not getting it off me, no way no how. It is adorable and is going straight into my purse. I love it! She can have the lettuce pin. Maybe.


That is all more than enough times two but there's more! This completely charming hoop with a CATcus, haha.

I really like how the texture of the fabric looks different on each coloured part. That's really neat.


And, because she's an over-the-top kinda gal, not one but THREE extras.


This guy cracks me up Cheesy.


Thank you so much! I sent you a paltry amount of items in return, boo. I will say though that I made 7 mediums and combined them into one so sort of balances out? Nah, I'll have to hit ya with something extra special along with your masterboards.

Thanks PB for organizing such a great swap! XO to you both <3

That cactus guy cracked me up, too!! And, when I saw the CATcus design on Urban Threads, I just knew I had to stitch it up. It cracks me up! endymion likes that cactus fabric, too. I sent it to both her and kittykill in the MAF swap, and endymion used it on a pillow she crocheted me! She got it at Hobby Lobby; I got it on Etsy.

I had to spoil you; We'd never been officially partnered before AND when you send internationally, it had better be worth the postage! ha!  I'm really glad you like the clear zip pouch. That was a new to me technique and fun to learn!

Here are all the cards; I put them into a collage:



(The pretty flowers on the cards were sent to me by a friend who kindly gifted me several of her stamps as well.)

The cactus cutout were done with my BigShot.

So...craftylittlemonkey was worried that because I sent more "items" than her that somehow hers did not add up.  She's kidding herself because you guys. I received my package today and IT. IS. SO BEAUTIFUL. AND. SO. AWESOME.

Everything all together:


How funny we sent each other cactus erasers! A fun "Can't Touch This" note pad, (not pictured) a fun little page of drawings to help me recognize my plants, and a BAG! I LOVE reusable bags.

You guys. These were just extras!!

Look at this beautiful display of succulents I can display on a shelf. We'll probably finagle a hanging system since shelf space is limited, though.



I squealed. Did you squeal too? It is so pretty! And, there are so many! I used to crochet a lot. This took some time! Wow! I think I really like the one with the white edges. It really makes it pop!

Another view:


Thank you so much Tisha! I really really love it! I recently killed a cactus and I think I'm killing some succulents (I just haven't figured how where to keep them!) so I know these will never die!

Thanks Jessica for a wonderful swap. Such a great theme.
