Yeah I got my stuff.  Pen sent me an huge envelope stuffed with lots of goodies.  Kind of made me feel understuffed  Huh  See huge envelope.


And here's everything in the envelope.  I got really big papers, 12x12 papers, maps, buttons, really, really cool vintage fabric (the pic of just that didn't come out) some cool embossed notecards of churches, post cards, and some stuff from France and Italy.


And here are some of my favs (I didn't even tell Pen how much I loved maps, that the only European countries I've been to are France and Italy, and that I've always wanted to do something crafty w/rock memoriabilia like posters)  Maps:


Brochures from France & Italy


Band memoriabilia and tattoo parlor fliers

Great swaps!! I can't believe how early everyone has sent...except the organizer Sad
I went through my packages today to try to make them neater. And I'm in the process of setting up a new craft space in my basement and I found MORE ephemera.  Undecided

Don't worry about making your packages neat, they wont stay that way for long...
you know how when people win lots of money in the movies and lay on the bed and throw the money all around them? ...that is me and paper and ephemera Smiley  oh that is a bit too personal isn't it?  darn, I always take it too far  Grin  (don't send anything too sharp)

Woot! I'm glad you liked it! All the music stuff came from Hogwild Records, one of the last independant record stores around in my town (yup I said it- records).
I knew they always had a lot of flyers and so I headed over. When I walked in the door there was a big box on the floor that said "FREE" with all the big posters in it!!! I resisted the urge to just grab the whole box. I bought the patches (had to keep one for myself) and a CD partly just out of warm fuzzy memories of going there while skipping school.

The vintage travel brochures were a really lucky find at an estate sale, you only got 1/3 of them ; ) I spent a whole dollar on those....

The really big cardstock is 12 x 18- it's from a Paper industry sample show.

No, you did NOT understuff, I knew I was being excessive, I took advantage & busted my stash a bit to make room for new goodies : )

Here are all the goodies I received from WYOKrista (muchos pictures!):

























I especially love the pages from what I can only assume was a book about the It's a Small World ride at Disney World!  And I already have plans for some of those fabric scraps.  Yay!  Thank you, Krista!
