I'll add that I would also do a personal swap for a pocket letter.  
And if someone wants to do one without buying a whole package of 9 pocket pages, I would send you one first so you can try it out before jumping in and going crazy with supplies Smiley

ChameleonHound - I agree - very cool to receive.

Welcome back lylacfey - There are several of us definitely interested in this being a recurring swap.  I will probably post some questions soon and ask people for feedback on frequency, rules, etc.

I did not check mail yesterday and went to run errands this morning and checked it then.  And I'm glad I did.  I received my pocket letter from Edel.  I've been feeling under the weather and it was the perfect pick-me-up.  And while I was out and about I went ahead and picked up a 3-ring notebook to store it in.

Edel went with my cat theme.  I have been waffling on whether I like pocket letters better with just one theme or several themes and this may have put me over on the single theme pocket letter side.  
It's fantastic!  I love it.

Oh and a word of caution to everyone: be careful opening these.  If you are sitting in your car and rip into it, things might go flying out  Shocked

The front, including glare.
I just love the little hand-drawn cats and those curly whiskers - so. cute.
And I love how the cats are standing on the washi tape surfaces.

Since there was glare (and I am not sure how to avoid that other than removing everything from the pockets) I took some close ups of sections:

And the back: the all matching backs looks so nice.  Mine definitely had more of a hodgepodge look on the backside Smiley

Project Name: Herbed Chicken Recipe, for human and dog
Project Link:
Brief Description: This is inspired by the Running Chicken Nebula in the constellation of Centaurus. Its a real thing, I had no idea. This is just a simple roast. I take the legs and wings off for a puppy meal. Cooked chicken bones shatter. Raw are ok for dogs who are accustomed to eating a raw diet.

Massage some butter under the skin over the breast meat. Sprinkle with paprika and Italian seasoning (equal parts oregano, parsley, basil, marjoram, etc.). If you don't have a spice, you can smell them as you add them. Just use what is appealing. Add a cup of broth from the last chicken or turkey that you made. I store broth in jelly jars in my freezer. Add water, filling the pan to two inches or so. I used a Pyrex baking dish which takes longer to cook and the chicken is a little more rubbery. The best is a cast iron frying pan. Bake at 350 for 45 to an hour. For crispy skin preheat oven to 425 and then drop it to 350 five minutes after you've put it in the oven.

The dogs like to have their raw meat in the yard because they leave it for three days in the Texas heat until it is nice and stinky. That's why she's making the face. She doesn't want to have to eat it in the kitchen. The white sprinkles are papaya enzymes for dogs and cats. Feeding indoors means that I have to wash that towel after one use. Some people use a plastic tablecloth and wash it after each meal.

Thanks again Wulf for organising.
I finally organised my flags and added them to the string with last year's. Last year's have been happily flapping away in my courtyard for a year and their messages have been weathered and travelled, but they still look beautiful.

I took a photo today with Flobot that I just HAD to share. I discovered this a couple of weeks ago in one of the parking garages downtown. Isn't it great?! I've no idea who put it up or why, but it's great.

Super fun stuff in here right now!  I really like all of Mellius's cross-stitch stuff; very cool!!  Smeddley's amigurumi are just darling; that Jareth is amazing!!  Hooray for Neverending Story love, and oh my goodness, that Clue tribute is so fun!!  I'm also super impressed by that whole package from fatewineroses; the Young Frankenstein hoop is incredible! Aaah, the Labyrinth art is super cute, and the stitching on that Wonka logo is great!!

Meanwhile, I got my package from DaphadillyArt!  It's great!!

There's a ton of stuff there from How to Train Your Dragon: the two TM patches on the left - one with Hiccup and Toothless enjoying a lovely sunset and one with an adorable Toothless pocket!, a wee little Toothless hoopla (which will look nice under my Haku hoopla by the same lovely crafter!), and an extra printed piece of fabric; they're all awesome!!  There's also a super cute Baymax magnet from Big Hero 6, and an extra Alaska magnet too. Those are both already on my door with all my other craftster magnets!!

Thanks so much, DaphadillyArt!  I love the package!! Smiley  By the way, yours is FINALLY done (so sorry it's so late!!) and will be going out in tomorrow's mail!

Wulf, I love the seedling with the big tree behind it, like a ghost of its growth potential. Brilliant! I hope SonjaBoo is doing OK - I'll go ahead and post the flag I sent to her as well.

The flower and curlies are reverse applique, and it has a kind of stained glass effect when viewed with light shining through.

I've been playing around more with acrylic paints and mediums, and recently made a series of five moon ATCs (inspired by a theme I claimed in the ongoing ATC swap).

I really like how they turned out!

Well my "friend" backed out of making the cake, so we didn't have a cool mushroom cloud.  So technically I decorated it myself with the decorations we got from Etsy.

Here's what the tables looked like

Not made by me, but this was handmade by a friend of my husband's to hold the cards

My completed guest book


And here's what we looked like.  My hat is vintage and I found it at an antique store (earrings are, too, but you can't really see them in this picture).  I made his boutonniere as well.

It was super fun and a lot of our guests followed the theme and dressed up in 50's looking outfits.
