I have received from LimeRiot and it's awesome!  I love it.  It's full of cool "junk". LimeRiot thought maybe I could use the journal for my ATCs and that's a great idea. 

First the cover is made of brown paper bag (I think). And has an elastic band to hold stuff.  Like this bingo card that can be used for a bookmark

Look at how stuff it is!

I made collages of my pages.  The collage utility (from google) did not keep the pics in the right order but I suppose it doesn't really matter.  Hopefully you can see all the details.  If there is a pic you want to see more clearly, let me know and I will post it.

The first image on the middle row actually shows the inside cover.

This collage shows some little tags and a brown bag. I really like the painted areas.  (I think it's paint.  it's too smooth to be gesso.  Unless it was sanded?)

In this collage, there are several more envelopes and pockets.  I love pockets.  and I really like the use of the doily.

In this next collage, the first pic has a cool burlap pocket. And there are several places I can tuck or attach ATCs.

Post your images here!  Please try to post a picture of the cover and at least 5 pictures of different pages.  IF you can do a collage(s) that would be great.

I received from rockingbearranch for my games theme.

It's the True American drinking game from the show New Girl.

TBH, I did not get the reference but a friend sent me a link to a video and omg, it was hilarious.  Crazy and insane!  I just may have to watch this show.

I received for my herb theme from emilywilde.  She was extremely generous and sent 3! Smiley
They look great.  Love the backgrounds.  And she chose great herbs to showcase!

I received a lovely flower from noodle-bug
She chose my flower theme and included my mathy/geeky theme by making the center stitches a fibonacci series - clever!

Thanks so much!  I was trying to get a good picture of the center but failed.

Let's swap pocket letters!

Pocket Letters are where you take a 9 pocket trading card page and fill each pocket with an ATC (although they don't have to be as detailed as an ATC) and small goodies tucked in behind the ATCs (stickers, tea bags, a note, washi tape samples, pictures, ephemera, craft supplies, paper clips, beads) and in one pocket, include a letter.
If you don't know where to find 9 pocket pages they are sold where collectible card games are sold such as Walmat or your local game store.  Or Amazon (25 for $5)

Each pocket can be a different theme or you can have one theme across all 9 pockets

This should be a low cost swap if you keep to all flat items and embellishments and should fit in an
A4 envelope (4 1/4" x 6 1/4") (you would have to fold it but that should not be an issue) or similar size.  I have heard that they should fit into a business sized envelope (4 1/8" x 9 1/2"). Just make sure that it is packaged well and the corners won't tear the envelope! Taping the edges of the envelope might be a good idea.

You can choose 1 or 2 partners.

Check into the swap thread every week!

Email address:
Your real name:

What colors do you dislike:
List themes you do NOT want to receive:
What (if anything) would you NOT want to receive as an extra/goodie in the pockets behind the ATCs?  

Any allergens in your home (pets, smoke, pollen)?
Do you have any allergies?
Pinterest link (to give your partner an idea of what you like)

Anything else youd like to tell the organizer or partner NOT listed in the questionnaire?


Also, remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find other rules about participating in a swap.

This is the ink line work before I colored it (part of me kind of wishes that I had left the card black and white):

And here's the other little fairy that I drew on the back, based on a pendant sculpture by DeviantArt artist, Angenia (if you love fairies, her work is definitely worth checking out!)

Patraw - I can't decide which I like better, the black and white version or the color.  They are both great.  And I had totally forgot to mention the bonus fairy on the back!  She was also well done.

I received a butterfly ATC from Beautifulsoul.
It's really pretty and a great addition to my collection.  I think you can see some of the shimmer in the pic but in real life the wings have an iridescent look to them.  Thanks!

I received an absolutely gorgeous fairy by Patraw.  I wish I could draw people half as well.  The shading is nicely done.  I love it.

Thanks - glad you liked it.

I got my pocket letter from curiousfae and it's really pretty.  I never thought about decorating the outside of the pockets.  This PL has given me some new ideas for the next one I make.

The front - so nicely color coordinated.

Cool idea for decorating the edge

The back with all the goodies

All the goodies out of the pocket

Thanks for doing this personal swap!
