Elensule asked me to post the stuff I sent her, since she is having camera issues, so here it is.

Firstly, one of those bedside book pocket thingies, which I'd never heard of until someone suggested it for the swap - now I'm going to have to make myself one! Also, this one is double-sided!


Next, a pair of earrings. They are puzzle pieces because she likes mysteries, get it?


The craft I was most proud of - a bookmark with a cross-stitched celtic cross, for her highland romance novels!


And the books:


Scarred - William Heffernan
Rats and Gargoyles - Mary Gentle
Magic Kingdom For Sale-Sold - Terry Brooks
Dark Symphony - Christine Feehan
In the Presence of the Enemy - Elizabeth George

I also threw in a few stretchy book covers I had laying around and one of those plastic things that goes on your thumb and holds your book open.

That bedside book pocket thingie is a neat idea! Wish I'd thought of that...

And lots of other cool stuff- love the bookmark (even though I seldom use them...)!

this is off-topic, but i had a wonderful experience at the post office today. there was someone in the lobby who personally assisted me! at the post office! and then the person behind the counter weighed my package and told me that a non-flat-rate box would be less expensive than the flat-rate box. and this was in a busy, downtown san francisco location! i have never had such helpful service at the post office - it's usually a terrible experience where i can never get assistance. i just had to share. thanks for humoring me.

that said, i third (fourth?) the anxiety of waiting for my partner to receive. especially since this is my first swap! eeeeeee!

So I got my package from riario when I came back from my crazy, last-minute roadtrip with my sister. It was pretty awesome! I can't wait to dig into these books!

Here are two pouches she made for me:


A close up of the Wizard of Oz fabric!:


Inside one of the pouches was a ton of candy!:


Inside the other pouch were two very sweet bracelets!:


She sent me four books over all the first two:

Freddy and Fredericka by Mark Helprin
Songs In Ordinary Time by Mary McGarry Morris

The other two books:

The Museum Guard by Howard Norman
A Spy In The House Of Love by Anais Nin

Overall I think this went pretty well for my first swap!

Thanks so much for everything riario! I hope you like your package!
