Yikes. Maybe it's on a truck out for delivery. If you don't get it today, I'd go back to the smaller place and tell them what's up. If they still aren't cooperative, I'd see if usps.com has a head office you can call for some help.  Undecided

Okay! So, let me first and foremost apologize to my wonderful partner Cat! Tickle-me-Emo! Know why? Because my pride and joy... My Nikon S7c decided to self destruct today! And it's not even a year old  Cry Anyway. These pictures are awful, taken with my phone. But hopefully her wonderful work will shine through anyway! On with the show!

The wrapped box!


First, my new babies! The lovely owl sisters! Bernadette is the big one, and Mildred is the baby! They both have little backpack slots on the back for letters! Aren't they adorable?? Also a uber Kawaii greeting card!


Then we have some awesome hand made kawaii stationery with Octos, clouds, and suns! Complete with matching envelopes! Also something I have never seen! A Hello Kitty Hole punch!

And then! A Hello Kitty Pen, TONS of treats for DH and I, some hair bands, a memo book, clear envelopes with designs, AND... You can't see it very well.. But this awesome board that holds your letters and envelopes!!



Anyway! I think I got most everything in the pics! And I am sorry they are so blurry.
Thank you so much Cat, you were a super-wonderful swap partner! Your gifts were thoughtful and so cute!
And thank you to Summer our organizer!

Love this gallery SO. MUCH.  I could die of Mildred's cuteness, and those sewing pattern envelopes are awesome. 

The status list is all updated, and I'm going to update the feedback right this second.  If you do not have feedback, and you should, please let me know.

Also, unless I hear from textbookcase asap, I think we need a swap angel.  Anyone want to earn some good karma?  If so, please PM me.

Well I am excited for my package from ksta, but I am bummed that I worked so hard on my package for textbookcase and she is MIA.  I didnt take photos either!!   Embarrassed (learning the hard way again)
ksta has been great about finding out what I'd like, and I turned her on to one of my favorite books.

I was just uploading some stuff to Flickr, so I thought I'd show off what I sent to summerthyme Smiley


My fellow Summer wanted a skirt, and she digs birds, and this is a penpal swap.  So!  A wrap skirt, onto which I embroidered some little birdies at a mailbox.


And look!  It's lined!


A squid-y stationery set, because she likes squid.  (All images found via Google Imagesearch.)


I also made her a little envelope pouch.  And on the right, there's a set of stickers I found with "Summer" on them while I was in Washington.


Just another shot of the pouch.

And, on another note... guess what, guys!  I HEREBY DECLARE THIS SWAP FINISHED!  Bigblank has received from our awesome swap angel, ksta!  Can't wait to see pics!

Yeah, it's a bummer. :/  But hey, look at it this way.  You've got some good karma coming to you now.  Smiley

Well I received from ksta my swap angel!!
She made me a pen roll, for my quill/nib calligraphy pens and inks.  It all has enough room for a few ink bottles.  The outside is a pretty embroidered fabric. 





It is fabulous, I LOVE IT!!
