I received my third package- I am completely blown away! I got a knitted white Tree of Gondor bag and a copy of SnB crochet- both of which I have been desperately wanting.  I honestly never expected to get either one, and as soon as I opened the package, I dumped everything out of the bag I was carrying and wore my new favorite bag for the rest of the day. FOC, I don't know who you are yet, but you are an amazingly wonderful person.  Thank you so much.

On a wonderful note, my friend, TamedVixen, allowed me to take pics with her camera tonight, since my camera will not cooperate with my computer, and she's going to upload them for me.  Prepare to be blown away!

What I know about my FOC:
1. She rocks.
2. She can knit.
3. She rocks.
4. She has bacon packing tape.
5. Did I mention she rocks?

The opposite of war isn't peace, it's creation!

Oohh, Tamedvixen is my penpal Smiley

Can't wait to see all these pics! Oh, and stifflersmom must be a man because no one else is capable of creating such things. She probably has little creatures (with tiny hands) helping her since the toothpicks are quite small.

Am I the only person who has NO idea what you guys are talking about? lol

They're talking about the brown purse leelee received.  A craftster named tinafish created and posted a tutorial for that purse (here)

Great stuff leelee!!  What did your FOC line the tinafish bag with??

The inside is lined with the printed fabric from the clutch and vice versa!

Huzzzah! I finally got some pictures downloaded (though I had to borrow my dad's camera - ours no longer wants to work with our computer...stupid technology!)! To make up for my lack of pics this past month, this is going to be a super pic heavy post...

Like I said before, my secret FOC sent something for everyone in my family...the cats were tipped off right away and would not leave my package alone:

Here is the Orange checking out the goods (the shutter didn't open all the way but kind of made a neat effect...):

The package has drawn a crowd (Black joins Orange and the Grey was sitting on the floor, just out of the frame):

Here are the toys (catnip stuffed mouse, bird & fish):

Here are the toys in action:

The Black:

The Grey:

The Orange ("Don't judge me!"):

The rest of the package (a present for me, my husband & my daughter - and the prettiest handmade envelope & card):

My husband (looking like a bum with his "playoff beard" - can't wait until hockey is over with!!) - he got as felt Montreal Canadiens hockey puck stuffy which he immediately added to his hockey "shrine" by the t.v. (great craftstalking, FOC!):

Here is the knit cupcake stuffy for my daughter (She keeps saying excitedly, "MMM! CAKE!!" and then pretending to eat it):

Finally (save the best for last!), I got a transfer t-shirt that says "Good Grammar Costs Nothing" (am a self-proclaimed "word nerd", so this is perfect!):

Don't worry, Secret FOC - the fit is not too bad. The shirt is a bit big (since I am uber short) but nothing I can't hem.  Smiley I put it on right away and wore it when we went to the park (although may have been pushing the limits of good fashion sense as pairing an oversize t-shirt with stretchy yoga pants and a pair of flip flops seems to be enforcing some kind of "suburban mom" stereotype...but the transfer is awesome and the shirt is super comfy!) Thank you for everything (and sorry, everyone else for the huge post!

that chicadee bag is fabulous!!  what's the inside lined with? and is it a pale yellow? sorta hard to tell from the pics.

Yup, the bag is a pale yellow quilted material on the outside.  The lining looks vintage, it has pink, yellow, brown and red flowers arranged in big circles.  It's very sweet, and my secret FOC perfectly arranged the print on the handle straps to show off the print.

Madmatigan79 -- your photos are great! I love the cat action shots! (Is it wrong of me to have bookmarked the Cat Toy Swap gallery to see all the photos of cats playing with their new toys?) And your husband and daughter eating that cupcake is adorable!

I live on the west coast. She lives on the east coast. We discuss crafts in between. Right here: Trans-craft-inental.
