*melts* Now we all know why anna-begins hosted this swap. She had all this Muppet craft inspiration she had to let out! I actually gasped when I saw the Inspire box. So. Beautiful.

Isn't she amazing?  I seriously lucked out this swap!  (The inspire box is even more amazing than it looks in the picture-- she did an awesome job on it!) Cheesy

Wow that is some Trinket Box! The texture is so nice and that picture is beyond wonderful - I've always loved the pic's of Jim Henson sitting with Kermit.

Those Coasters so rock!

The blanket and pillows are super nice. You got Kermit just right - love his little green face  Grin

There has been an awful lot of cool crafting going on, but how could that not happen with Muppets and their kin being the inspiration?  The stage was a great idea, and the flowers on the Kermit pillow are incredibly detailed--wow!  Not to mention the box!  The Grover container and Beaker pen were likewise incredible, as was the Count clock--there are so many wonderful swap items on display so far, I could just keep going!

Since I know the package arrived, I thought I'd make things easier for grasshopper & mom by posting the pics of what I sent to grasshopper's mom.  

Starting from the top, then left to right when applicable:

Fozzie Bear flower pot (seeds for real flowers included, but no dirt) with ears that wiggle; Muppety-looking daffodils with wiggly-eyes to go in it for now; fur-covered Fozzie Bear joke journal with jokes from Muppet Show season 1 written under dividers and lots of space left for recording personal favorites (I didn't do the pen, but it's about perfect, isn't it?); Cookie Monster picture frame that says "Cute enough to eat" across the top of the matting; Great Muppet Caper V-neck T-shirt with a picture of Fozzie and Kermit and the words "Doublemint:  Eat your heart out!"; Cookie Monster-inspired fleece blanket with various whole and bitten cookies appliqued to the front; Great Muppet Caper regular T with two pictures of Fozzie and Kermit and the words "Identical Twins" at the top.

The T-shirt photos came out terrible--the shirts are the same color to start with.  I was originally putting the two transfers on the front and back of the same T, then realized I didn't have any adequate hard surface to put between the layers, so it wound up two.



*Edited to fix broken picture links.

BatGrrl - what fun things!  That Fozzie pot (complete with wiggling ears!) is too cute!  The joke book was a great idea!  And yet again, I'm craving chocolate chip cookies!  What's with this swap?!  Are you guys *trying* to ruin my diet?   Wink
