Oh wow! Enjoy your trip!

I THINK I'm ready to send. I'm going to go through my package over the weekend and make sure everything is good to go.

Hang on to your hats, folks. I got an AMAZING package from Susie Apple! Check it out-


Moonrise Kingdom coasters!



Susie said this is the first time she'd attempted something like this. The set is made of Sam and Suzy's letters back and forth. The letters are handwritten, and the doodles were drawn by her, too. The backing pages are from books with various topics (on the one about Sam starting the fire, there's a bit from a guidebook about starting fires. The letter from Suzy has a page from a book about birds.). They are finished with resin, and the resin set flawlessly! Here are the individual shots-









In her note, she apologized for some trial and error flaws, but I don't see any flaws at all! My hubs hasn't even seen Moonrise (a travesty, I know; I'm working on it), and he called them, "really, really cool!" We did a four point swap, but I'm pretty sure that the work and thought that went into these qualifies them as a 20 pointer! Wink

She also made me a Max Fischer journal! I love the artwork on the cover, she perfectly captured his snark:



I'm a Rushmore junkie- it was my first Anderson film, and it remains my favorite. Every single thing Max says is either comic gold, or amazingly on point and contemplative. She really captured his whole attitude on the front! And inside the back cover:



A quote from a contemplative max moment in the film and some crafty tidbits (including a bee  Wink ). I am in the market for a new notebook for work, and this fit the order perfectly! I can't wait for my colleagues to be super jealous of my notes (we're all Anderson fans).

Thank you so much, Alynna! This was an amazing package, and I'm so happy to be on the receiving end of it!  Cheesy

If you and your partner have both sent, received, and posted gallery pics, I'll have updated your feedback in the system by the end of the day.

What an absolutely gorgeous picture! Thanks for sharing!

I stopped at the post office today, and guess what? The new stamp coming out in August is none other than her majesty, Janis Joplin!
