I am finally posting what I received from my swap angel, RaeRaggs.  She sent some wonderful things.

First, the whole lot.

A piano hinge journal that I have decided is going to be my new swap journal.  It even has my name on it.

The front

And the back showing the artist's name

She also sent some perler bead coasters, which my grandbabies are going to love.

Also included was a resin starter kit.  I can't wait to get into this.

Thanks, RaeRaggs for being my angel.  I love everything.  Sorry it took me so long to get photos up.

The package I sent to PersephoneHazard returned to me today, intact though a little musty from sitting in a London warehouse for, oh, two months. So now I have pictures of everything else I sent, and I can send them off to someone else instead...

Birthday card I made with first page of an old, old novel called "A Virgin of Yesterday", and a journal with the title page of that book-

Altered box that originally held Victoria's Secret products; a lot of the metal microbeadz fell off the sides.

Bottom of the box--image from a magazine ad, with embellishments -

multiple KoolAid packets and white yarn for dye experimenting

And a bunch of random jewelry findings, in addition to the things I previously posted pictures of. At least this stuff didn't end up in the trash or lost!

This crafter is out of service most of the rest of 2015 due to a wild schedule. Feel free to contact me re personal swaps or just checking in. I'll be popping in when I can.

It's sad, but I'm glad you got the package back.  It was a great package.

Wow ... amazing that you got it back after all that time!  Nice package and you'll find someone else to send it to for sure  Cheesy

Got this piece of shrinky dink ... had it for 25 years now.  It's moved to five states and one European country ... and I just know, someday ... SOMEDAY ... I WILL use it!
