weeping_cloud - I work at the Field Museum in Chicago and there's ALWAYS random old pamphlets and things lying around so I usually try to fit them in swap packages so that they can maybe be put to some good use!  Smiley

I'm glad you like the colours, I picked them out at random so I was a bit worried you wouldn't like them.

I recieved the most wonderful package from bhean today!
Here they are, in order of how I opened them.

First, there was this lovely card (which I find highly adorable):

Then, Tinkerbell transfers! Now, I love Tinkerbell and squealed when I saw them. I'm excited to try them! She even included directions.

And last, but not least, my favorite thing of all. I cried when I saw it, seriously. A Tinkerbell picture! That she made! It's fantastic!!






Thank you so much, Bhean!!!!

I spent a few days of dedicated stitching on the bookmark. As for the book, the actual color is more gold and less green than the photo. (Tho' that does give it a pretty cool patina-like look.)

My roommate actually photographed all the different pages. The index for the jpgs is here: http://www.inle.org/gg/

You're welcome again! I'm glad you liked your gifts. Smiley

Thanks for the extra pics...I have never been much on the paper crafts but I recently became interested in ATC's and altered books...The inside pages are just as beautiful...

The cross stitch is wonderful--I gave away all of my supplies for that since my eyes can't see that tiny anymore!  But, I still love to see it and it remains a classic skill across all ages and cultures...lovely to see that it is still popular
