My package from ningy finally made its long journey across the globe to me:


A shirt that says "Love? Oh... that!" written in sharpie, a whale stuffy with a heart, some cute Japanese ephemera and a Valentine note on postcard from the Singapore Prison Service. 

Thanks for the package! Smiley

So I bought a new camera!  It takes the loveliest photos, too!

So, finally, here's photos of the things that I received from RamenQueen.

A painted and decorated photo frame--one of the buttons fell off in shipping, I just haven't gotten around to gluing it back on yet.


Some blank notecards that she decorated.


Some painted/collaged wall art.


And this was the card she sent.


She also sent some chocolates and some Valentinesy paper die cuts for crafting.  So thanks again, Tawna!



Anyway, I didn't take photos of everything I sent to her, but I did take photos of the thing I'm the most proud of so I guess I'll just post those!  I made her a little notebook made completely out of repurposed paper waste.  The cover is a piece of chipboard that I rescued from the trash at my office, and it's covered on the outside with some vintage 1964 sheet music for the organ, and on the inside with the bag that my lunch had come in that day (with her name hand stamped on it).  The pages were all collected from various half-used and discarded notebooks.  I cut them all to size and then hand-bound them into the journal.  I also included a (non-crafted, but awesome) pencil made entirely out of recycled newspapers!  Anyway, some photos of the journal!

Some of the pages


Second, she said she liked white chocolate and fruit, so I improvised and changed around some recipes I had to make a dry white hot chocolate mix and some homemade pink raspberry heart-shaped mini marshmallows (or as I called them on the packaging, "heartshmallows!").  I didn't take any photos of that, though.

The third item was an origami heart folded out of a dollar bill.  I also took photos and wrote instructions to make a personal tutorial for her so she could make her own.  And actually, I made that available for her online here if anyone else wants to look at it.

The card I made was just a cute little pinup and some more stamping.  I didn't take any photos of that, either.

Anyway, yay!  This was a really fun swap to craft for, and I hope to do more swaps in the future.

Here are the things I received from k^2!

A robot heart stuffie! This is great, because I pretty much talk about robots all of the time.


An adorable red satiny heart pouch!


Finally, a great little bag that I haven't stopped carrying since I got it!


Thanks so much k^2!

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?action=post;topic=224361.70;num_replies=76Aaaaaaaaand, here is the stuff I sent to k^2!

So, she wanted useful things...scarves are useful! I embroidered a cupcake and an alligator on it because those are things she likes...and things that like each other.


Socks are also useful! Nautical themed!


She mentioned wanting stationary to send to friends so I made "lovely love letters"


And I threw in some extras like gel clings for the window:
