I used a weird paper that came with some vinyl I bought, but a lot of people will use plastic bags or cellophane.   Grin

We received the most phenomenal package from indigokat on Tuesday, right before I was about to go out of town (just got back). I haven't had an opportunity to unpack the camera, but when I do, I will snap some photos asap!

Thanks so much, indigokat! If you have pictures, go ahead and post them...I might not get anything uploaded until tonight. Smiley

YAY - I'm glad you liked it! I think I noted there were several failed projects that I started for your daughter, but that's what I like about swaps ... I always TRY something new (and there are always bumps on the road to learning new skills).

AND for once I did take photos before I sent. I hope you had a great trip! I know it must have been hard to be away from your little one!

On to the goodies:

Madmatigan will have to explain the Polka Rama shirt ... I thought it was sweet that she bonds with her grandparents with music.  Smiley

I also got together with some friends and we all made some kiddie aprons. (I had told my other partner that I was so thrilled she made an apron herself for Astrid because I've always made gifts for others and never made one for my own daughter).

The new Craftster rules now ban CDs in swaps but since this one was underway I was able to still send some CDs for Elora's listening and dancing pleasure. I do a musical playgroup/dance party at my house so I've been collecting good kids music and also adult music that is fun for kids. I sent 5 CDs full of rock, folk, world, dance, silliness, rockabilly, singalongs. (I can do personal swaps too if anyone wants new music for kids).

And lastly ... a found alphabet print for Elora. I got addicted to collecting photo alphabet a few years ago on a photography group. These make great gifts so get out your camera and tune your eye to those letters around you.  Wink

Back from hiatus and trying not to just lurk.
