Aw...I'm so happy you like it Luna........I LOVED making that bag....

The THree Junes is a wonderful read...


I'll post the pics since you've already opened the package...

Here's the snap of the embroidered quote that takes up nearly the entire bag...The quote is from Luna's favourite book Le Petit Prince...the translation is something like, "but the eyes are blind, you must search with your heart...The fabric is from a sports jacket that my brother bought in India and decided he didn't like...



and a detail of the skull that graces one corner of the other side of the bag...


And the bookmark, made of recycled denim...I had a tough time with this one...



I LOVED this swap and would so totally be down for another round.

Great packages everyone. So many cool bags! I'm almost feeling bad that I didn't do a bag! Oh well... And Three Junes was a great read, the only one in the gallery I've read so far ( I think). I'd love more info about the books that were sent!

wow- there is so much amazing stuff here. I love that fabric bookmark, kantha!

I can't believe sweetestangel's box was so destroyed! I'm really glad that I wrapped everything up so well. I told them specifically that it had glass in it. Really, what they did to that box is just inexcusable.

Here's the bookmark that I made for sweetest angel (since her photo was a little blurry.). It is a very short story written by neil Gaiman (whom we both love, and as it turns out so does almost every other person in this swap. Really, when I was reading everyone's swap info they sent me I was astonished at how many Neil fans we had here) So,  here's a link to the article that has Neil's very short story- the stories had to be six words long:

http://www.wired.com/wired/archive/14.11/sixwords.html

and the bookmark:


the flower seller from Stardust


for both of the illustrations I sent sweetestangel, I drew everything first in pen and ink, then scanned the pen and ink and painted it in photoshop. This is pretty much how I illustrate everything  Smiley

Amazing stuff, everyone! I love House of Spirits. and Three Junes, and Walk Two Moons. And the crafts are awesome too. Anyway, I've gotten my package from gwydion, and taken pictures, but I've been too lazy to upload them to my computer. I'll do it soon, because the stuff she sent me was amazing.

So much cool stuff! It's all so good. The Gaiman bookmark is very original, and I like the look of the bookmark Cherith made. More info on the books please!

I'm so glad you like!! And I'm so glad people love Isabel Allende. Kantha I hope you haven't already read that book. And you should definitely check out her other books. She's awesome.
I started Three Junes and I'm loving it. I've been late to work twice already because I lost track of the time!!
