Thank you very much.  I have a huge stack of recycled bookmarks at home since ours always seem to go missing and my son and I read constantly.  It's a good way to recycle when our town doesn't have a recycling program.

It really is. Our town used to have a recycle program but they dropped it a few years ago.I like the colors in the bookmarks and the unusual shape. Bookmarks always come in handy.

And thanks for the link to the crocheted sun and clouds. I think I'll try my hand at making those, they're so cute.

All the packages so far have been amazing.

I agree.  Smiley

Oops, sorry Strwbry- I'm updating everyone now. Smiley I did receive a wonderful package from StrwbryMlkmmmmmm ya'll, and I'll post pictures tonight. This was a hectic weekend for me!

And Liralen and Mellifluous, I can't believe that recycling isn't available where you both live- that stinks! I complain because there are a lot of things that can't be recycled through our program (like plastic other than #1 or #2), but I guess I'm lucky to have what is available!

They used to have one in my hometown, but it didn't last very long.  There is still a 'recycling center' both in my town and hometown (ten miles away) but they are mostly for cans.  In my hometown, they have some building in the back somewhere where people can bring newspaper and cardboard and such.  But now they charge $2 for it and I'm never sure where I'm supposed to go.

That's what happened here too. They had one for a short time but the city decided it was too expensive. They have a recycling center that takes plastic too, and it's not far from my house, which is good. It's just the gathering and transporting that's a pain.

I received a beautiful and thoughful package from StrwbryMlkmmmmmm on Friday, but am just now getting around to posting pics. (Sorry, SMMmmm! Smiley )
Here's all my goodies together:

And the shadowbox, with an excerpt from Mary Oliver's The Faun:

She made me three pretty notebooks, with these wonderful images:

Please, click on the thumbs- the images she used are so gorgeous and pair perfectly with the poems!

This book mark was inside that last one:
She and I both love She Walks in Beauty by Byron, and she made me this lovely tote:

And last, my favorite item- this coaster set with images and lines from My Heart Soars by Chief Dan George:
The beautiful pictures are on the front:


And words on the back:
The only problem is that the coasters are too beautiful to use! I already threatened my guy with bodily harm for even thinking about putting a glass on one!
She was also kind enough to send me some extra copies of the lovely pictures that I have crafty plans for.
Thanks so much, StrwbryMlkmmmmmm, I absolutely love it all!

Everything is gorgeous!  I love those coasters.  I think I would have a fit using them as well.  I love the journals!

What a great package StrwbryMlkmmmmmm. You did an excellent job crafting for the selected poems. The shadow box with the fawn is beautiful. I love the images and poems on the notebooks and coasters. Where did you get them? And the design on the tote is cool. I've always liked that poem too.

You got spoiled good Dragon.  Smiley

Love those notebooks and coasters! I might have to make a set of poetry themed coasters myself!

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.
