I received my wonderful recycled package from cxcaitlyn on Thursday and was able to take pictures today......(this old lady can't seem to take non-blurry pictures on a regular basis. Hope you can all make out what the picture is ok... cxcaitlyn, if you have better pics, please post them.)
when I opened the box I found a card made from a piece of recycled paper glued to what appeared to be a magazine page showing people on a beach. Nice touch.
Next I pulled out this bag...made from a recycled skirt and material from her stash
detail shot showing the pockets and the mushrooms/flowers that she painted on
and the lining
then I pulled out this frame,
that she found broken outside her apartment building. Since the glass was still intact, she refurbished it with material from an old shirt she had. Almost looks like one of our cats peeking up to see what is going on.
next came these wonderful, major time consuming, coasters made from junk mail.
She said "...I didn't even have to use a week's worth of junk mail to make these!" I'm glad I don't get that much junk mail, I'd drown in it, but I'm very happy to have these nice coasters.
finally, I pulled this wonderful lady out of the bag......
I looooovvvvve her! She is so soft and cuddly and very, very cute. She is made from some old sweaters and modeled after the fox on my wist.
pinokeeo, you can keep your froggy lady, I have my 'foxy lady'....
Thank you cxcaitlyn for a wonderful package. It is a 'loud and proud' recycled package and I am very happy to be its recipient. Great swap!
Thanks Pixieval and CJClark for organizing this Reduce, Reuse, Recycle swap.
