My journal is home!! It's beautiful; thank you all sooo much! I have lots of pictures. Sorry, no scanner, so if anyone has a better shot of what you sent, please post it. OK, enough chatter. Check it out!

Cover (that's me!)

Inside signin page:

Everyone's tags:
(left to right: Stifflersmom, katxena, goatgoddess, kaesea, and amaryllisroze)

Stifflersmom: This is one that didn't photograph as nicely as I'd like; sorry about the glare. I love this! It's all about school and fantasy and fairy children! Left page:

On this page, some of the numbers have pics of kids behind them. What a fun surprise! You can see some other kids peaking around the side of the building.

The building flaps open, and look underneath!

Next page, from katxena, lovely layers and type and design:

Right page: What a fun flashcard! Using the ticket for the answer is so fun:

Then, from goatgoddess, more children with wings, this time, though, they are young clowns!

Right page: more layers, stamps and fun 3D elements:

Now, kaesea, and back to school! I love the way you replaced some of the letters with other letters, and the use of the old images:

Right page: you get an A+!

And last but certainly not least...my clowny friend, amaryllisroze:

It's beautiful, and I'd know it was your work anywhere!
Right page: isn't it great?

I don't know what else to say. I love it!! Thanks so much to you all, and I can't wait to see it when it gets back around!  Kiss

I got a wonderful crow/raven shrine today from jonnamarco! She really did her homework. She researched ravens, and included a book with everything she learned. The shrine is full of objects that relate to crows. You can't really see it, but the outside of the shrine has the poem "The Raven" modpodged on it.

It's great, isn't it? It really looks perfect in my computer/soon to be craft room. The green across the middle matches the walls and the light blue on top is the same color as the ceiling! Thanks so much, jonnamarco!  Smiley

This little Altoid tin shrine was originally going to be sent out in the tiny shrine swap, but when I went to mail it and re-read my partner's survey that she really liked scary, I decided that perhaps it missed the mark a bit. This was confirmed when I sent Stifflersmom a preview and she used the word "darling" to describe it.  Cheesy

Anyway, I really like it, so now it's mine. I made a newer, darker shrine for my partner.

The outside:

And the inside:

The text says, "ghoulies and ghosties and long legged beasties and things that go bump in the night", which was taken from a bedtime prayer we used to say when we were children.  Smiley

I can't believe it's the last Tuesday in April already! Here are two cards, both for jan_on_ice. I did spring and summer, so I had to finish up with fall and winter. I hope you like them jan! I'm sending them out today.  Smiley

After last week's card (summer), I thought it would be fun to do a seasons series for jan_on_ice. This week, I lightened up things a bit with "spring". This photo is a little dark, but you get the idea:

(not available)

It's a newspaper background overlayed with tissue paper. The images are stamped and colored, and the flowers are brads.

bigmouth, I love seeing that picture of you (and Elvis!) at school.  Cheesy Sorry, I didn't take any pics of the magnet, but here's a closeup of the King:

I got my package from the always witty and clever bigmouth today! We did a smaller swap together, but look what she sent me:

An embroidered "crafty bitch" shirt to replace the butt-ugly one that my partner supposedly sent me in the April first mod "swap" Cheesy and some great circus fabric. I haven't decided yet what I will do with this. Something fun!

Also in the package were the following:

Two tiny boxes with thimble planters and eternally blooming pink flowers, a great little decorated tin, and some flower magnets made from hardware. So cute! Also, check out that box made of tape measures! I love it. It's going to sit on my desk and hold important items.  Smiley You really should be selling these somewhere.

Thanks so much, bigmouth. I always love seeing what your devious little mind will come up with, and as always, it was a pleasure swapping with you.  Kiss

Here's my Tuesday:

This card put up a bit of a fight, and I'm still not sure I won. The text says, "Love eluded her. It seemed to hover nearby like small tiny butterflies. No matter how still she sat, she could not entice one to land upon her.

I'm sending all my April cards to jan_on_ice, and I think I am feeling some pressure. I will be sending a bonus card, as this one is a bit questionable.  Cheesy

Yay! Sweets got my package, and I got hers!! Before I post, though, I wanted to say that I used to have a sweatshirt very similar to that one you sent vanillaxlight, Loth. I guess it's time to get it back out, huh? What a thoughtful package.

Sweets, I'm glad you like the macaroni purse. (Sorry some of the pieces fell off  Undecided) I just got a wild hair and thought you would like something a bit "different".  Cheesy I'm also glad you liked the "his" and "her$" pillowcases. I had those letters (but no "s") and thought that the dollar sign was sort of funny. What did your sweetie say?  Cheesy

Anyway, without further ado, here's what I got in my package!! Here's all of together: a reconned altoid tin (everyone knows I love those!), a book purse with a felted flower, a bracelet that will match just about every single thing I own, a little clutch, and a "Crafty Bitch" shirt, right off of my wists!

Here's a closeup of the tin and the shirt:

And the little clutch.

Best of all, I am the recipient of one of sweets' first atcs!

Thanks, sweets! I can tell you did some major post stalking.  Kiss
