I'll swap for postcards, badges, maps or brochures from everywhere in the US! I'm an English teacher and always happy about authentic material for my classroom.

I received from mandykaye the other day and I now have photos ready!

An overall group shot:


2 postcards from her summer trip and a book lovers journal - which will come in handy for my book blog!
 

A lovely necklace and earring set and a chunky charm bracelet:


A clever little box that held the jewelry, I really love this!


Thanks so much for swapping with me, Mandy!

My partner, Eveamliyza, asked me to post photos of the swap items I sent her for package three as she doesn't have access to a camera right now.

Carlee is the ATC queen and one of her requests was someplace to store her ATCs, perhaps a decorated notebook. Thinking about it, I decided I wanted to make something a little fancier than a notebook. My idea was to create a large, free-standing piece that cold both display and store ATCs and other small artwork and ephemera. I'm calling it a Display Round for lack of a better term Cheesy

Here are pics and details follow:


The unit without ATCs


Close up of the Base with some ATCs tucked inside


Close up of the top with 6 different ATCs displayed


Finally, here are the 6 ATCs I created to accompany the Display Round so that it was ready to go with art to display when it arrived Cheesy

These are, from top left going clockwise, "Rustic Russia", "Wise Old Owl", "Flame Practice", "Slytherin State of Mind", "The Key to Everything" and "Garden Glow." The top of the Display Round can showcase six different ATCs while the base has 16 compartments to tuck other ATCs and artwork not on display.

The Display Round looks rather plain but it was built from scratch and quite the undertaking. Thanks to this swap I now own a router for my Dremel and my back porch has black spray paint splotches on the concrete Grin

OMG That "Display Round" is EPIC!! I'm not huge into the ATCs but mostly because I don't know where I would put them or how I would display them. That solves everything! I am SOOO pinning it! Brilliant!

Package #3 from thisbirdsabsurd

Guess what I got from thisbirdsabsurd for my package #3?  I got a mini-me art doll!  She stalked me really well through a friend as well as my farm blog.  It's got my blue eyes, shoulder length silver hair, farm boots, the overalls I live in and she's carrying a market basket full of things I sell at our farmers' market!  Aren't I cute??  I love her art dolls and now I have one all my own.  I knew exactly what it was when I opened the box.  So did my husband, so good job capturing me!



Here's a close up of my market basket contents.  It contains raw fleece, honey, carrots, tomatoes, pear tomatoes, garlic and soap. 



She also sent a cat toy for our cat Bindi, upcycled from a felted sweater. 


And a toy for our Jenna, she loves it!


Well, she loves playing with it.  We're mean at her sometimes.  Jenna says "thank you, Jen".


You're awesome!  I'm thrilled with everything you sent me for this swap.  THANK YOU!

Ohhhh - poor Jenna - LOL - what a silly picture of her!  Love the action shot of Bindi - she really is playing with that little critter!
  Glad you liked your package - and like I said a million times - this was tons of fun!
