Got my reveal package! Yay!  So a recap on what I got...

First Send Out:

A GREAT crochet hook holder...Love the fabric.


A Pencil/Pen holder that is currently living in my backpack (and holding up swimmingly)


Second Send Out:

I love this shirt. I seriously do.  Wore it to school and got a few laughs from my friends.  Grin


I am a Crackster now!  Ignore the high look I  have...this pic was taken after a very long day and way past midnight, be surprised I was even upright and not passed out on the couch...


Heh, my craftisha.  It sleeps on my dresser and when I need her she's next to me while I'm crafting.


Third Send Out:

I still am excited about this one.  I haven't gotten to try anything yet because of work, school ending, going to Disnyland tomorrow (yes, be jealous bwahaha!), and my swap addiction (how do you guys stand it!).  As soon as I send out my thank you to my FOC I'm gonna break this puppy out!


Fourth Send Out:

So I was driving my poor FOC up the wall with trying to figure out my last two send out...I seriously thought I would be really easy since I go bonkers for a lot of things lol.  So she finally just PMed me and said "WHAT DO YOU WANT!?" (I swear I could feel her hands going for around my neck *sheepish look*)  So I told her that I would love some sewing supplies because I had just recently messed with a pair of pants and didn't even own the thread I used (thanks mom!) so she sent me a beginners kit.  (Pants are here https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=97608.0 )

So who was my wonderful FOC?

It was....


Our very own swap organizer extradinar hertigger!

Thank you SO much for everything! I truely love it all.  The shirts rock (in fact they inspired me to try stenciling too), the pencil/pen case I don't know how I can do without now, the sculpty is just way too cool, and look! I got another project and my own thread ....my mom says thank you for that by the way  Grin

You really have been a great swap partner and thank you again *off to make Nessa something*

I saw those awesome stencilled shirts and I thought of hertrigger, but I wasn't sure about the rest of it.  I knew you did great stencils, Nessa, but I didn't expect you to be behind that needle roll!  Great job!  Smiley

So earlier this month my sendee posted and said she had received my reveal package but work was really crazy and she wouldn't be able to post pics for a few days......I guess she still hasn't had time.  I can't wait any longer though, the secrecy is killing me!!!  So I'm just going to reveal myself Smiley

I was sending to leelee (sending, not receiving.  I posted all the loot I received from tristitia here).


For the first package I sent:

Fabric lined box (I think of it as a jewelry box)


Magnets to go w/the theme of her kitchen (wine/Italian)





Second package:

Tinafish hobo (sorry for the crappy pic Tongue)


Clutch purse


Two bracelets




Third package:

Knitting needle roll



Knitting stitch markers




For the 4th/reveal package I sent 1 yard each of the fan fabrics and a large box of dots (my favorite candy, I had to share the love Cheesy Wink).  I don't have any pics of my last package, I was concentrating so hard on getting it out on time I forgot to take any.....

leelee - I hope you like/liked what I sent you.  I also hope you are well (haven't seen you around Craftster for awhile) and that you aren't to overworked from....work Smiley

 Kiss - Jess

*edit* I posted more pictures on my blog

Fantastic stuff, night_owl! That needle roll is absolute gorgeous -- I love the fabrics that you used! What a bummer about Leelee -- Leelee? Are you out there? Come out and play!

Based on some earlier posts, it seems that some other people are still holding out on their reveals -- c'mon and post, folks! We want to see the goodies! (Yup... I'm addicted to looking at things that other people receive... think there's a 12 step program for this? Wink )

night_owl, that stuff is fabulous! how did you do the beautiful flowers on the top of the jewelry box? was it freehand or stenciled? I adore that fan fabric too--it looks so classy!

The flowers on the box was a stencil....for the most part.  Leelee loves Asian inspired stuff and on her questionnaire said she needed a small box for jewelry to keep in her bathroom (red accents and yellow flowers).  So I googled for Asian flowers and liked this one. Smiley  I printed it enough times that technically I'd be able to do a separate stencil for each color.  Unfortunately, while my hands are amazingly steady w/a paint brush, the same cannot be said when I cut w/an exacto (sp?) knife. Tongue  So I ended up free handing the little white buds and about half of the greenery.
