I love the art panels! What a clever use for scrapbook paper.
Actually, that whole package is really awesome... beautiful bracelet, the pet rocks are too cute, love the necklace.

Also, oddmentsandtweaks, your photos are fabulous! I have got to figure out how to get better pics of swap stuff- mine suck.

Also-also, I finally mailed jeannettew32's package today- yay!

I was just cleaning off my kitchen table and realized there are two more items that I forgot to mention!

The items were packed in a cute blue tote bag that is the perfect size for taking my lunch to work in.  There was also a rock collecting book that she made.  Each page has a spot for a picture and places to write what it is, where you found it etc.

I told you all I was spoiled!

Alright, I can't help it. I took lots of pictures before I sent out (I always do), so here's a few more of EnginerdLisa's package:

The scrapbook she mentioned. I designed the front and the pages inside, and printed up a lot of them and had it bound. Then I filled in the first few pages with some of the things I sent to her.


The earrings again. I was hoping my picture showed how shiny they were a little better? I'm not really sure, though. Anyway, they're made of blue goldstone. I know EnginerdLisa liked blue things, and it was the only blue I had. They're so dark they're almost black, though. Like looking up into a starry night sky.


And finally, a couple close up pictures of the rock things I sent to her. The first has the possible fish kidney, and part of a fossilized turtle shell. The second is the crinoids, which I think are amazingly cool.



Everyone else sent all these cool projects ABOUT rocks (including my cute little crocheted pet rocks--which my cat is unfortunately pretty indifferent to), and for some reason I thought most of my projects had to somehow INVOLVE rocks. Isn't it funny how our minds work differently?

Anyway, I'm glad you think I spoiled you, EnginerdLisa! I was worried I would be sending an awful swap.

Haha- I love the "possible fish kidney". It just makes me laugh for some reason.  Cheesy
We have crinoids around TN too, and they are really, really cool. Smiley
