My package from sf craftster
arrived today! She had mentioned in an earlier post about how well matched up we were, and I definitely have to agree! It was like we had Swap ESP or something.
Onto the good stuff....
First, the books:Winter of Fire; Sherryl Jordan
(This one sounds really good! I love fantasy and YA books, so I can't wait to read it.)Claymore, Volume 1; Norihiro Yagi
(Whoa! The plot for this manga sounds awesome. I took a real quick peek inside and the artwork is pretty cool, too.)Vampire Knight, Volume 1; Matsuri Hino
(I actually have this manga already and it's one of my favorites! If I had had more time, I was going to make a Cross Academy school uniform to wear to Comic Con this year ('cuz that's how big a geek I am). I have a friend who has been wanting to borrow this from me for some time, so I'm very glad for the extra copy to lend out now.)
The Crafty Goodness...
A journal to keep track of the books I've read, lent out, and want to read. It's exactly what I wanted (and almost exactly the same thing I sent her as you'll see when she posts her pics)!!
It's so cool! She made the stamps that she used on the pages, which is genius. There's a section to record the books I've read and give them a 5-star rating. A section to keep track of who've I've lent my books out to and if they've been returned. And, a section to keep track of titles that I want to read in the future. She also sent me the stamps she made.
These are personalized book plate stamps that she made, too! They are rating off the charts on my personal awesome scale right now.
I went stamp-happy and tested them out on the envelope her card came in. Pretty sweet, huh? Isn't the little owl adorable!
Now, I'm a huge (which is an understatement, btw) fan of the Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer. Look how awesome this is!! (It looks like the Twilight book cover for those who aren't familiar.)
Lastly, she sent me this tote bag from the organization she works for. It's the perfect size and I love totes, so this will get tons of use.
I LOVE everything you sent me! Thanks again, sf craftster, for being such an awesome first swap partner!
