I just received my package from the fabulous Starwings20! Woo, that was FAST! She made so many cool things!! I'll be posting pictures this evening (waiting for the battery to my cam to finish charging). I can't believe how awesome everything is, I felt like it was my birthday unwrapping everything!!! And now I wish I could've made her way more things, worked harder on my projects, etc... Her things are so cool, thank you Jennifer!!!!!

I meant to post these pictures last night, but I went to bed early like an old lady. Anyway, I've been raving to everyone about these awesome crafts I received from Starwings20! This girl has major talent, I would've never imagined this was her 1st swap! Cheesy

Everything together.. (don't worry, I've got more pics to show!)

I mentioned to Starwings20 in our emails back & forth that I collect all kinds of things, including pirate stuff. Here's a really funky coaster she made (in pink, my favorite color!). Notice that she also added a sprinkle of tobacco inside the coaster. I don't know how she did it, but I love how unique it is!

A crocheted ashtray with a cig! Too cool! Grin It looks so real!! I plan on using this as a pincushion for sewing. Or just leaving this out on the coffeetable and seeing how many people think it's real, LOL!

Here's a box that she included a (sweet!) letter inside. It's so cool, you just open the box by the velcro, and store things inside! Here's what the inside looks like:

Lots of little stars (which we both like!).. this girl knows the way to my heart Cheesy

Check this out... she MADE this ashtray! It matches the coaster pictured above, it's pink and features a snazzy pirate lighting his cigarette! Unfortunately, the wrapping paper stuck a little bit to the gloss over the pirate (probably while it was on it's way through many states to get here, we live on opposite ends of USA!), but I plan on cleaning it up a bit and getting that off. Then using it as a change-holder or to drop my keys in when I come home. I don't want to use it as an ashtray because I'm too scared I'll ruin it. I love it!!!

Yep, that's a crocheted ciggy/lighter holder that she made me in the 2 colors I told her that I love (pink & black)! Thank you so much Starwings20, this is my favorite gift ever! My cigarettes and lighter fit perfectly inside! Also, she made a shrinkydink charm that says "ALLIE'S SMOKES". Too awesome!!!  Grin Oh, but that's just the beginning of the shrinkydink charm heaven she sent...

Coffee stirrers! With shrinkydink charms at the end! That are personalized!!!! Yay!!! (Sorry, I'm still a little excited over these!) She included these because she found out I love coffee, and of course coffee & cigarettes go together perfectly. They're really cool, I hope you can read in the picture some of the sayings: "Allie's coffee", "The best part of waking up!" (I sing the  Folgers coffee commercial everytime I read that!), and "Cigarette please!" These are so cool! Cheesy

Sorry, I'm still way excited over my gifts from Starwings20! I LOVE everything she made!!!! I plan on using everything. I can't thank you enough Jennifer! THANK YOU!!!!!! You're so talented and creative and so sweet!!!

Now I totally think my sent items suck compared to hers  Undecided

I received the most incredible items from Dogrrl!

An amazing tote and matching cigarette pack holder. The fabric is awesome but the handmade cigarette buttons are INCREDIBLE! She even sent me extras. A portable ashtray that can hold breathstrips lighter and cigarettes. Ashtrays for around the house with smoking ladies on them. AND a vintage Salem thermostat.

I LOVE everything! Thank you again so much Dogrrl!

As an ex-smoker, I have to say this:

(No, I'm not going to preach.)

Hahahahaha! What a great swap!

Yay, I got my camera back!  This is the great package I got from sephe711!

some cute wine charms which combine 2 of my favorite bad habits, smoking and drinking wine!

Two ashtrays.  One is hand painted and the other is an ashtray "to go" and it's personalized!

The sweetest cigarette holder - I am in love with this fabric!

The greatest pin cushion EVER!!!!  I totally cracked up when I saw it and I love the way it reminds me to take a break from the sewing machine!!!

She also sent me some great magnets that I didn't get a picture of before my camera battery died.

Thanks so much sephe711 - I love everything!

Shura (DogGrrl), I am so glad that you like everything Smiley I was so worried, this being my first swap and all. Thank goodness the cig holder fits your smokes... I didn't have a pack of 100's to work from, nor a pattern... needless to say it took a few attempts, but when I saw the fabric it just seemed to perfectly fit what you said you liked.

I received from IamtheShelbster... no worries about being a little late on the send-out... I just hope your ankle is feeling better! Since my camera is old and a POS, I have yet to post pics, though I will as soon as I have the patience to mess with it. I got a piece of artwork in a funky frame, a decopaged asktray and tin. Thanks Shelby!

This was such a fun swap... I'm looking forward to joining a few more Smiley
