I received my wonderful package from trix_ska over the weekend. She sent me lots of lovely things.
A really neat crocheted pinup box, a lip balm cozie, toy cozie, lip balm, hand cream, 4 erotic books, and a blue feather boa that isn't pictured because my cats started attacking it the minute it was out of the box. It's hiding in the closet.
Everything (but the boa) and one of my curious kitties.
I received the most amazing ATCs from raeraethejetplane. They're more like ATC books full of even more ATCs. There are lots of pictures below and even a couple that are NSFW. She made them all books because one of my themes was books.
It's dark here and my lighting is bad so some of the colors in the photos are washed out. I'm leaving for the weekend and really wanted to get these posted tonight so they get the attention they deserve. I also didn't post all the images in each book. There were way too many and some of them were pretty similar (like the quotes).
Book 1 - Paintings of Aquatic Life - the watercolors are beautiful.
Book 2 - How to Fold an Origami Crane - She included some little squares to practice with and even put the actual folds in the little book for each step
Book 3 - 17 Cat Facts - I love the cat in the Abe Lincoln hat
Book 4 - untitled - Pop-up fishies!
Book 5 - untitled pressed flower book - Beautful! There were some other pages in there two, but I think this one is my favorite page.
Book 6 - Major Kingdoms of Plantae and Animalia - made with a real twig and bark The watercolors are beautiful. You really can't tell how wonderful from the photos.
Book 7 - Books - A Collection of Quotations - a book of book quotes
Book 8 - untitled broken heart book - Back story: I originally had 'love' listed as a theme. Shortly after we received partners for this swap, my boyfriend broke up with me. I PMed RaeRae and said that she could switch "love sucks" for love if she hadn't started on the cards yet and wanted to do the theme. So this is the result and I love it! (ps. the boyfriend and I are back together now too ) The flaps open up then the cards flip up.
I received an awesome package from yelutci over the weekend.
A binder with some green recipes for things like laundry, cleaning, etc. It also had a beautiful crochet bookmark and recipe (food) booklet that I forgot to take a photo of. She also made me 3 ATCs and a little plaque. The ATCs are all ready up on my ATC wall and the plaque is on my bookshelf.
Two dryer balls (her dog got a hold of one...my cats also seem to love real wool), two washcloths, and a scrubbie. I'm afraid to use the scrubbie because I know it will get so messy quick, but it's still by my kitchen sink.
Finally, this great shopping bag. The flower is crochet using pop tabs! That is one of the coolest things I've seen in a while. The bag is also made using some of my favorite colors
Close up of the pop tab flower. The colors are washed out in this photo, but turned out better in the one above.
Here are my two lovely pages from angelofmusic. They are 8.5x11 inches and a beach theme for my Australia themed scrapbook. I love them. Thank you! Now I just have to find some good photos to put in there.
