I received my package from queenofmarigold a few days ago and finally got the pictures off my camera today! Everything is great, so without further ado:
Here's everything together, including her note!
Here's the bag in action, I'm using it already as it's the perfect size! Big enough to fit my wallet and phone and maybe a book, but not so big that I feel dumb carrying just a few tiny things in it. And the strap is perfect for carrying, not like most totes. Exactly what I needed! Plus (most importantly!) the bleach stencil of the Skyrim logo looks great
Next, awesome shadowmark coasters! Half of them upside down, haha. I love that they're like a secret code in the game, even if the only one I usually see is the "loot here" symbol. I have need of coasters all over so they will come in very handy!
And, awesomest saved for last, a handmade journal (right? but so well done!) with a bunch of pages written in Dragon! I am totally in awe of queenofmarigold's skills in making this. Even the dragon text is written so perfectly! I've always loved books and so thought bookbinding was just awesome, but I've never tried to make even a tiny book. This really looks professional, though, don't tell me this is your first attempt at this kind of thing - is it? I haven't tried to translate it yet, but I will certainly get on it soon!
I'm so grateful to have gotten such a perfect and great swap package! Thank you so much queenofmarigold!! I may have overdone the exclamation points, haha.
