As promised, here are the photos of my fab stuff from RubyTuesday:

Everything together. The book is It's What He Would've Wanted by Sean Hughes. I can't wait to start reding it -- it sounds great.



Cloud 9 brooch. Sooo cute! As you can see it's already pinned to my jacket.



I Can See Clearly Now the Rain Has Gone sun pendant:



Four Seasons in One Day earrings:



I Don't Care What the Weatherman Says bookmark. Look at the little raindrops!



And last but not least... a Happy Hippo with a cocktail umbrella!



Thanks for being such a great partner RubyTuesday Grin

This is a very cool swap! Darn I wish I hadn't been bogged down with work this semester...I would have loved to have been a part of this one...especially seeing all of the fabulous craftiness of the swappers.

Please tell me there will be another round!!!

What a fantastic package. The cloud pin is so cute!

I am sure there will be a second round as this one has proven to be popular.  If there is another later in the year I know I will probably sign up for it too.

I've gotten the most wonderful package today, and I'd scream a lot about it now except they're demanding me to be on Ventrilo for a guild meeting in WoW while I'm typing this... Didn't get an answer about whether I can avoid actually logging on, so I'm pretending that's okay... but lots of talking in my head! Wink

Anyway, to the point
I LOVE everything and I have about as big a crush on crafty_karen1 as I do on my boyfriend right now, because this is all so... perfect.

This is the book I got, and actually one I was hoping for from our discussions Cheesy



Together with this I got this dreamy bookmark, a beautiful cross stitch design which is exactly to my taste. The feel of it is what I tend to describe as "feels like rain", the same thing I like in Gaiman's books, and  so on


She also embroidered this beautiful dragon and attached it to this wonderful notebook


I want to put it on my wall on display, the entire notebook, but I guess I'll have to learn to use notebooks instead of being afraid of using them for things that aren't worthy Roll Eyes

Last craft, but not the least, are these wonderful dodo notecards! Unfortunately two corner flowers fell off the "top" card of the stack, it's standing in the back here, but it's still beautiful. She says it's the only craft related to the contents of the book, and I'm very curious to find out what it is Cheesy Last book I read that mentioned a Dodo was the first of the Dirk Gently books, and I adored that one, so just Dodos existing in this book excites me as to see how come! Wink

AND she included a craft magazine for me!

It's really fun, I haven't read it but I've leafed through it very thoroughly Wink

And she says this is just the first package o_O She must be insane. So now I'm thinking that since she says she doesn't have a lot of crafting experience outside embroidery and paper crafts, I hope what I send will suffice from sheer "she's not used to doing that craft herself" Cheesy

Ok, this was probably a way too long post, and not long enough to justify what I got, because I'm trying to listen to our bozz on ventrilo, but I think I got my major point across:
I completely adore everything I've gotten.

yeah Grin! I'm glad you like it all. Sorry the flowers fell off. A little glue will stick them back down again  Smiley. Parcel number 2 will be sent out to you on Friday (not going to get to go to the post office today after all).

Don't sell yourself too short. I am sure that whatever you are sending is fantastic and I can't wait to see it.  Cheesy

For some obscure reason, the dodo cards didn't make it into my post, so I'm posting again Wink
