 Cheesy  I was part of the 'round robin' in this swap, and I received today from my partner, TheSavoyTruffle!  Unfortunately, I cannot post photos so she will be doing so soon (thank you again), but I do want to post a description of the really thoughtful and talented package she sent me!

(Keep in mind that my musicians that I chose were:  Eminem, Pink, and Louis Armstrong.  A tough crowd and a tough mix of types of music to really delve into if it's not your thing.  TheSavoyTruffle did a really, really good job!)

-A set of three magnets:  two have fancy type lamps on them and one says 'shine'

-A very interesting painted wooden frame with many different types of pictures of women on it with the words "It's just the way I am" in magazine cutouts on the bottom (pictures and words decopauged)

-Unique and lovely charms representing different things:  a mirror with beautiful flowers on top, a blue translucent jewel, a flower, and a flying bird (sent in a pretty mini drawstring bag)

-TWO AMAZING PAINTINGS!  TheSavoyTruffle is truly, truly talented and really interpreted the songs and the meaning behind them so well.

My heart was very much touched by the thought that went into this package.  I would prefer not go go into details on why I chose the songs I did, but I was a bit concerned that whoever received me as a partner would not be able to see how much those songs meant (and still do) mean to me.  I didn't need to worry.  I am THRILLED with this package!  Thank you so very much, The SavoyTruffle!

All right ladies, here's what I received from my lovely swap partner, janiegirl!

It's a super snuggly pillow! janiegirl also sent along a wonderful note explaining the pillow as well. This is the front of the pillow. The sun and the flowers represent the song "5 years time" by Noah and the Whale. This is happy song and a happy picture!  Cheesy


Close up of the flowers. Aren't they so cute!


Close up of the happy sun! I wish I had a better camera so that yall could really see the incredible detailing on the embroidery, because it is INCREDIBLE! I'm super jealous of janiegirl's mad skills!


The other side represents the song "Sleep" by the Dandy Warhols. This is one of the most beautiful songs ever. Seriously. You should go listen to it.  The music note represents sleep, dreaming, and calmness.


Here's a close up of the music note. IT'S HAND-TATTED, PEOPLE.  Shocked  And beautiful!  


Here's another pic of this side...


But wait! What's this?  Huh


It's a hidden pocket!! But there's something inside it!


Inside the pocket I found this!  It's my favorite quote form the Nine Inch Nails song "The Fragile".  The pocket is in black because this song respents my darker days in the past. But the pocket is hidden because it's all in my past (thank god).  The quote is hidden in the pocket because it's a very important part of who I was.

 
When I first opened the package and read the letter my inital reaction was something along the lines of the famous Wanye's brothers quote "I AM NOT WORTHY!" Seriously.
I was just blown away by janiegirl's talent and all of the love and effort she put into this project.

In  summation: I LOOOOOOVE IT!!!!! Cheesy   THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART!!!!
