So I'm the worst swap partner ever! I received an AMAZING package from Envyus several days ago and am just now posting! So sorry! But here is the awesomeness!
She sent me a super awesome cross stitch kit, because I love doing it. It came with 6 square sections of the cross stitch material (my mind is blank at the moment on what that is called) a book mark to cross stitch, a hoop to hold it, and some cool colors, as well as a book filled with patterns.
She also sent some cool scrapbooking stamps, a package to make picture magnets, and some diva stickers!
She made me pincushin in some super pretty colors! And a cool thing that you put in water and it turns into a towel, a wristlet, and a super cool, old timey HUGE sucker!
Sorry to take up so much of the gallery at once, but envyus asked me to go ahead and take pics of what I was sending her because she's having some camera issues. So here is her stuff.
A knitting kit. She has someone who is teaching her how to do it, so i didn't include how how-to book, but got her a magazine with some really cool patterns and stuff in it for after she learns. Some yarns in colors that I hope she likes, and of course, some needles.
I also got her a couple notebooks so she can stay organized! Her life is pretty crazy! LOL!
A bag in her color that I added some studs to, to give it some character.
And last, my personal favorite, a book that I am finding absolutely enthralling, and that I think she will thoroughly enjoy.
I received an AWESOME package from Kaissa a few days ago! So, then of course, everything decided to die on me, my computer, my camera and then the internet! LOL! So, FINALLY, here are the pics of all the super cool stuff she sent! I'm so excited, I can't wait to use it all!
First a quick pic of everything.
She sent me some really cute stationary that she dyed with bubbles and food coloring! It's really cute! And she sent me some scrapbooking letters that I can't wait to use! And stickers, and some really pretty notecards.
Then, she sent me a really pretty zipper pouch, I love the fabric, it's really pale. She also sent me a heating pad! And I LOVE the fabric for this one, it's gorgeous! I don't think the picture shows it very well. But it's a really deep red. And she sent me a decoupaged box, with some vintage paper, I'm going to keep puttting teas in it, which she also sent, and they are yummy!
She also sent me a tutorial that she made just for me to use for putting in zippers and making zipper pouches. She knows that I've been terrified of zippers ever since I saw my grandma sew her fingers together putting one in! So that was really sweet, and I can't wait to try it. Especially with all the great fabrics she sent! Also going with the fabrics, a REALLY cool book on making bags! I'm fairly new to this, but they're so much fun, and I want to try about every bag in the book!
And last, but not least, she sent some REALLY COOL pics of her place, and some really pretty postcards! I'm so jealous of her photography skills, and where she lives!
Sorry if you can't see the pics too well, it's hard to take a pic of a pic!
Thank you so much for everything Kaissa, I hope you like your package as much! It's almost ready!
Here are some more. Again, I love any ideas, comments or criticisms!
These are more pages from the Biltmore house, and some from our river trips this past summer, cuz my man was a guide. The last one is the first of the beach pages. More in another post, cuz this one is getting chubby!
Here are my most recent pages that I've done. Some of them my boyfriend did with me, so they make me really happy! I'm really happy with how this set turned out! Let me know what you think. Any ideas or suggestions are always welcome!
I know the pages are a little random, but that's how I do them and take pics of them. They are pages of us moving, hiking at Grandfather Mountain for our anniversary, going to the Biltmore house for our anniversary and taking two of our friends to Dollywood. I'll put more in another post, so this one doesn't get too big! Thanks for looking!
And this jumbled mess includes sweetpea lotion, a Tink pack of mini playing cards, a pack of orbit gum for me to try, a postcard of a man and his ass in Texas and Arkansas at the same time, a really cool decoupaged and stamped notebook, a pretty covered notebook. It's all cute! I can't wait for my next package.
