I am so thrilled with my package from rainysunshine789!!!

I wanted a laptop bag and a camera bag big enough to also act as my purse.   She did amazing!


First:




And my new camera purse!





(even a pocket for my pamphlets!)

AND! an extra necklace! I love this and I will most definitely wear it often:


I love the patterns, the prints, the colors, everything!  You've got me pegged! I hope you like you package as much as I like mine.

Those are GREAT!  Both look really well made.  That camera case/purse looks very useful and bright and colorful!

LOL...I also made a camera case/purse...must be going around...I went in a different direction though and upcycled something instead.   Smiley  My partner rec'd this weekend, so I look forward to hearing what she thinks, since it was a totally unique idea that totally evolved on its own.

Aw, I'm so glad you like it so much!  I was getting worried your laptop might not fit or the camera wouldn't fit, but it seems everything fits nicely.  I had fun making it.  I really hope you enjoy using it.

Here is the super amazing package I've been promising pics of. I don't have a ton of time to give it the praise it deserves, but here is a bit of wall art of a quote from Ray Bradbury, an author we both love



And here is my adorable little kindle case with a fuzzy inside to keep my kindle snug and warm



And last but certainly not least, here is a purse turned camera case that goddessgarb painted up with pretty flowers and filled with padded compartments for my lenses and whatnot.



The pics were taken with webcam (that's my parents' living room you see in the background) so they aren't top notch, but the goodies as well as the crafting book she sent on papercrafting! Smiley

I'm back after a long hiatus. Not doing any big swaps right now but feel free to message me for small ones and supply exchanges. I have a bunch of fabric that I'd like to swap for different supplies! 

Also, I have a pintrest now Smiley

I'm so happy you like it all so much, jungianwanderer.  I discovered a real love (almost obsession!) for that "quote collage" technique, even though it takes hours.  And as I always say, is there anything that cannot be made better by paint pens?   Wink  Now I just want to paint gerber daisies on everything.

I can put up some totally self-gratuitous pics since you're limited to a webcam right now.   Wink

Camera bag/purse (was plain black patent):


Inside, with adjustable foam cushions:


Inside, with Kindle case peeking out of perfect pocket for it that was there when I bought the purse (Oh man was I tickled with that!):


Outside of Kindle Case:


And the words to the quote, in case they're hard to read:

Ray Bradbury:  "Since then, I have never listened to anyone who criticized my taste in space travel, sideshows, or gorillas.  When this occurs, I pack up my dinosaurs and leave the room."

What a wonderful idea to transform that purse - and you did a great job on it!!!

The fabrics for all the projects are so cute! Everything looks amazing so far ***swap anxiety kicking in*** can't wait to see everything else Cheesy

That kindle cover is adorable!  Cool to see that we both went at the same thing very differently with the very different (and adorable) camera cases.
