I received a great package from PureOath today.  I sent her a bunch of poems with my questionnaire and she picked out a few of the Ginsberg poems.  One of the ones I had chosen was Howl, which is long-winded and full of not-work-safe language, but I absolutely adore this first stanza:

    Angel-headed hipsters burning for the ancient heavenly connection
    to the starry dynamo in the machinery of night.



She totally got the feel for this in my package!



Here is a beaded necklace and a lined Ginsberg inspired notebook titled The Machinery of Night.  It is so nifty and will come in handy.  On the top of each page, she wrote a phrase from some of the poems I listed.  I think I might have to introduce this idea to my writing group.



These are some wonderful notecards with part of the quote on them.  She left out the 'angelheaded hipsters'. Smiley  So pretty!  Each has a shiny bit on them as well.



PureOath threw in some great earrings as well.  Each is unique and most are stones with embellishments with the metal bits.  Is the white one a stone as well?  I'm pretty sure it is but I couldn't tell.  I love rocks.



And last is this great tote bag!  It will come in handy and is a great way for sharing my favorite poetry.

Thank you so much for an awesome swap!

I'm glad you liked your package Liralen! Those white ones are also stones. All of the gemstones used in your necklace and earrings came from the same mix lot!

Gigglygirl sent me an amazing package. Everything inside it was so awesome.

The fabric she used for the T.S. Eliot purse and coin purse is awesome, and is representative of the Wasteland's dark theme and feel. ( I love damask.)





And this memory board is so awesome! It's got pictures of e.e. cummings' wife and artwork with some of my favorite poems.



I got spoiled!

I am looking to do a personal swap with (or will outright pay for) a knitter who could make an adult sized knitted t-rex sweater for Christmas. If anyone is interested, please let me know.

Thanks for posting so fast! I hope you like the purse. That fabric proved a bit more challenging to sew than I anticipated. It's spot clean by the way.

Ooh, some people have received already. Cool stuff.

I think my favorite is the "Machinery of Night" journal. What a great idea.

The T.S. Eliot purse is beautiful too, and the ee cummings memory board I love as well.

I knew this was going to be be a great swap.  Smiley

I love the purse. It's probably getting worn out to school tomorrow.

Oooh gorgeous stuff so far!

PureOath, I love how you took just that one line and did so much with it. "the starry dynamo" totebag is pretty awesome; did you use bleach pen? Those notecards and the jewelry are really pretty too. But my favorite is also "the machinery of night" notebook, and I love that there are different quotes inside. Liralen- you got spoiled! Smiley

Gigglygirl, the fabric you chose for the purse and coin purse is lovely, and I like the embellishments you used. The colors in the memory board are so pretty and I love the bits you tucked in it. I'm seriously jealous, PureOath!

Sure did. It was a surprisingly fun project. I made like 3 more of them afterwards.

I was totally spoiled!  I was wondering if it was bleach, but it was very controlled.  I'm going to have to seek out one of those as well!  Now I just have to wait for Gigglygirl to receive her package...
