21  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Traveling Little Visitor Swap Round 23 Gallery! on: October 22, 2016 03:58:08 PM
Aurora made it home safely, and lucky for me she didn't come alone.  Wink

This is the scrapbook of her Montana and beyond adventures along with a picture painted by stellato_escuro's daughter.


She brought home some books with wonderful pictures of Montana.  s_e even worked with one of the photographers!  She has most excellent taste I might add, as The Far Side is one of my favorite cartoons ever.  The framed pictures she took on her grandparent's property in South Dakota.


s_e found an Art-O-Mat!  I've heard about them, but I've never actually seen one.  I received a pendant and a piece of decorated glass (can't wait to put that in a mosaic!).  I have never tried needle felting (don't really trust myself with that one), but I do like it.  I'm chuffed to have this cute little cottage brooch!  There's also soap, a watercolor card, and ephemera from exhibits/places Aurora visited.  DH and I went up to South Dakota years ago, and we absolutely loved it up there.  Like an idiot I didn't pick up a Wall Drug bumper sticker, but she sent one so I can cross that regret right of the list. LOL


Thank you, stellato_escuro, for taking such excellent care of Aurora this summer!

Aurora made it home safely today!  I'm leaving again tomorrow, but I will be back on Sunday and will post pics when I return.

Artsycandice, I know what you mean about the scrapbook.  Mine was anemic to say the least.   Undecided I really like zcrafter's solution of just using page protectors so the pages can be put in any binder.  I think I might request that format in the next round so that I can keep all of Aurora's travels in one book.

Almost forgot:  I am up for another swap whenever it happens.  It felt so strange not to be whipping Tree out for photos last week.  Wink

So much excitement since I've been gone!  There's too much to comment on individually, but it's so fun seeing the LVs come home.  Alby's scrapbook puts mine to shame for sure.  I was hurried to finish it and didn't have much creativity in me that day.  I felt kind of bad for it being so plain, but it's better than not sending one at all, right?  Right?

Felicity's sombrero was so worth the wait!

I'll be gone for the next ten days, so I'm going to go ahead and mail out today.  I'm not too excited about the scrapbook, but it's in there.  Shocked At least I know I'll have one piece of fun mail for when I return!

Tree and I had a wonderful time in Scotland, and she was so excited to meet another LV.  While the big people talked she and Baranof had their own conversation about their travels.


I'm headed today to get the pictures printed so scrapbooking can commence.  Choosing just a few was harder than I thought it would be!

The picture of Tree chilling near the bridge is one of my most favorite TLV photos ever. 
Aw, thanks!  What can I say; the girl knows how to hang out.  Grin

My favorite was where the LV had it's own cup of coffee.  I can't remember who posted it (and I'm too lazy to go backtracking), but it was just so sweet.

Tree got the whirlwind tour of downtown St. Louis.  Here she is chilling on the river front near the Eads Bridge.


The Basilica of St. Louis, King (we just call it the Old Cathedral) is the first cathedral built west of the Mississippi River.  It's also where the St. Vincent de Paul Society was founded in the United States.


She visited the Old Courthouse where Dred and Harriet Scott unsuccessfully sued for their freedom from slavery.


No visit downtown would be complete without a picture of the Gateway Arch.  The whole area is undergoing renovation, so pardon the cranes in the photo.
