Hints - moi?Huh? Patience, Sally-chan, all will be revealed.

Love the orange blanket and the book photo frame is an awesome idea - very clever. And I like the ginkgo stamp & bookmarks - very professional. I wish I could make stamps.

Wow, orgelpunt! I love that blanket! The motif looks really cool - is there, by chance, a pattern available? The book picture frame is a brilliant idea, too. And the stamps are also great - I love ginkgos!

I got my package from tinkerbella over the weekend. 

This great bag - which is standing up because I'm already using it.  Smiley


And this great book box which has my favorite poem, "When We Two Parted" by Lord Byron.  She also included two different length book marks and a cool red button bracelet. 


I love it all!

Thanks for all the great feedback!!! I am so glad that everything got there okay. I had so much fun making all the stuff for this swap and loved how it got me to use loads of different mediums and techniques!

There have been some really great packages over the last few days and i have to say that i loved the bath tub book cover - such an ingenius idea. Might make one as a christmas present for my mum if plumcrafty doesn't object.

oh and ps terrabella just thought that i would point out that the cranes on the mobile need to have their wwings pulled in a down and outwards direction. When you do this the back expands and they become 3d. I had to leave them flat for sending. You could cheak out a "how make a paper crane" video on you tube and then just follow the last step.

Ooo - I love the bag.  What is the spiderweb made of?  If I ask nicely will you take a closeup?

Please?  Pretty please?

 Smiley Thanks for all of the compliments guys, the totebag took forever but I'm really happy with how it came out.

I got my awesome package yesterday (on my birthday none-the-less!) My partner Kimberly_Star is going to post the photos tomorrow because my camera doesn't want to upload my photos  Angry

I received:

An amazing "borrowed book" journal to keep track of who has what book of mine. The cover says "Tell all truth but tell it slant" by S'nosilla Yrarbil Koob.

I also got a sweet altered altoid tin covered in yellowed dictionary pages with a beautiful beaded bookmark inside (which may be reborn into a bracelet since I love it so much)

And I got a wooden plaque with a burnt in tree with two read feathers, from the cover of Indian KIller by Sherman Alexie

And to top it off, I got three books, none of which I have read yet- Eragon, The Birth of Venus, and Astrid and Veronika

THANK YOU Kimberly!
