 Shocked I just opened my incredibly awesome package from retro-redux!!!! I'll post pictures as soon as I can find my boyfriend's camera, but here is what she made me:
super cute book tote that is REVERSIBLE!!!
several adorable bookmarks with retro designs that I absolutely love!!
a really cool tag journal for recording my favorite reads of 2007
reading themed and retro magnets
a coffee scented candle that I adore decorated with text and buttons (way way cool!!)
a STACK of books for me to read Smiley
some super cool felty flower pins
text stone paperweights that match the candle and are awesome
a really neat bookcover that will be excellent for keeping my books safe
a super cool and very crafty photo frame decorated with pieces from various games (I SO love this!!)
a hanging kitchen towel that is awesome!
and some crafting supplies like buttons and velcro!!

Retro-redux aka Laura, you went WAY overboard so you will probably receive surprise presents throughout the rest of the year Smiley
I love them all so much!!!

adorable shrinky dink pin up book thong!



closeup on my two extra special items-a pink and chocolate knit? book bag-ADORE and my best ever! the booklight-Jamie knows my Mr. Darcy love so now I have a blinged out Darcy to take to bed with me every night-to read of course-LOL.



here's Mr Darcy checking out Elizabeth Bennett and shining some light on their relationship Smiley



 She also sent me 3 lil pen post its, a handmade wipe off wish list to bring to the library or bookstore (LOVE) and a cool Sci Fi card. Thank you SO much Jamie-I love everything!!!

Here's the stuff I sent Miljamie:)

All the stuff again in said crappy chair:



"wisdom words" coffee candle and stones-atop book cover that was a semi failed attempt after two failed attempts:(:


tag book for Jamie to journal about the books she loves this year-and a booby blinged bookmark:



close up on the book bag-I used this tutorial: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=60872.0

this is a great tutorial-I made it a bit bigger for books-I will definately be using that pattern again-thanks dyabolica:)



game piece frame:


stamped manniquin bookmarks, old sci fi cheesy bookmarks and magnets, grape/wine hand towel, felt broaches, and kawaii stickers. Other stuff not pictured-8 chick lit books, some vintage buttons and velcro for her use.



This was a really fun swap!

 Shocked



right, this is probably my least constructive post so far  Roll Eyes
I simply cannot decide which I like more, the bookends or the glittery boob bookclub card. Both make me smile. Very nice
