I'm looking to send my Step-Sister's Choice quilt to a new home.  If you're interested in swapping for fabric/scrapbooking supplies, send me a PM.

Wow, amazing stuff, Murbeck!   I am now having to get my rear in gear even more than I was!!!  Shocked

It's true, there must be a connection in a fairy world somewhere with the inspirations for our projects.  I have two projects that are of a similar nature, let's say, allegory.   Wink

I received my swap package from eukarya today! Everything is so lovely, I am still scraping my jaw up off the floor! Shocked

Here is what was inside the box. Everything was wrapped in pretty fairy paper, and she sent a gorgeous card, and candy flowers that my husband keeps eyeballing:


She made a gorgeous beaded bookmark and awesome note cards with illustrations from one of my favorite artists on them (all the note cards have different illustrations):


I also received a tote bag in my favorite colors, with fairies and mushrooms painted on:


This beautiful box is painted and it also has some of my favorite illustrations on it:


But, what's in the box?! A handpainted egg! It is amazingly beautiful! Only one of pics came out, but it has three mini scenes painted on it from "A Midsummer Night's Dream." Beyond fabulous, I tell you!:


The large item seriously blew me away...


I said "Wow, she made me a Little Red Riding Hood themed journal!" No. She. Didn't! She made me a story book...she wrote out the story of Little Red Riding Hood and illustrated it!!!:


Fabulous does not begin to describe it!

Needless to say, I love it all! Thank you again eukarya, for leaving me dazed with the beauty of it all.

I am now afraid to send you my swap. Cheesy

You all have me blushing fiercely over here Smiley

I've seriously wanted to try this for years but never had the motivation to get started (and I could never pick a story Tongue )

As for the other things...I love Arthur Rackham as well and I love love love his illustrations of Midsummer Night's Dream as well....makes us good partners, it does Smiley

I can't wait to see more packages.  The creativity in this group is amazing! Smiley
