I RECEIVED!!!!!!!!

First up:  notecard puzzle pieces!  These are so cool - she made a painting and then cut it into notecards that I can send one at a time to one of my penpals.


When assembled...


I'm going to have a really hard time mailing that off to somebody, because I really dig the painting.  I LOVE this idea, though, so I'll make myself do it.

Next up:  Stationery with hand drawn designs that I love, and a line-template for slipping under my paper when I write, because I like unlined stationery best, but I can't write in a straight line to save my life.  This will be used a LOT.


Address labels!  I have needed these SO badly!


A pencil box, which will come in very handy for overnights at my mom's (I can NEVER find a pen at her house) and my writing meetings on the weekends!


And my absolute, hands-down favorite thing:  a wall organizer for all my penpal stuff!  I have wanted/needed something like this for the LONGEST time, and have just not gotten around to making one for myself.  I saw the cloth peeking out from your note, haroldlovesmaude, and I went  :-XohmygoshIhopethat'swhatIthinkitmightbe Lips sealed AND IT WAS!  I love it!

wow - i got my package from kiden2 today - it was just the pick-me-up i needed! she sent such an awesome package... and it was her first swap too! we should all bow down to her newbie glory (or at least i should!) ok... on to the pics!

here's two of the items right out of the envelope....


a really cool fabric envelope (nice and sturdy) - kiden, did i tell you i was forever losing my stamps?


and the other? so cool pinup cards she made herself! the yellow polka dot one has to be my favorite!


and the cute bow around it is now my new headband!!


but wait.... hold the phone.... the one that totally takes the cake... completely blew my mind away! i can't believe how many old stamps she must have parted with from her collection - i'll have you all know it's hanging proudly above my desk!!!


awesome awesome awesome
thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you, kiden2!!!!!!!!!

Whoo! I got my package today! The USPS is speedy.  doe_eyes, I love everything, thank you! Everyone should know, this was her first time making everything she did for me... and she did so well!

Now onto the goodies!

First, 6 pretty flower pens (note craftster in the background?)



Then, she made me an AWESOME letter writing holder.  It's like the rolls that people make for their knitting needles, but for writing stuff!



The inside has room for stationery, pens, and... AIRHEADS? I already tried the "New Wave" flavor.  Delicious! It tastes like pineapple.



And finally, some beautiful stationery! I can't pick which one I like the best. They're definitely my style- Cute, but not cutesy.









And some extra envelopes...



doe_eyes, I don't know how to thank you enough!  This was such a perfect first swap experience.
