Some lovely goodies so far  Grin That button frame is really sweet and I don't think i have ever seen that many cute ladybug things in the same place.

I received my package from Mountains and Clouds yesterday woot! We decided to make small things that would fit in a little box and i am extremely impressed with M&C's creativity in keeping to the tiny scale.

Here comes the pic spammage

Firstly some nifty tourist style goodies (I love treasure map style picture on the notepad so much i don't think i could bear to use it!)


Gelly pens, ink and hand designed skull stickers and a hand carved skully stamp - i actually did a little happy dance when i pulled the skull stamp out (i am slightly skull obsessed Roll Eyes)


..but wait inside a little box were more carved stamps and in the background you can see little ATC sized hand bound notebooks! The little Tiki dude is so sweet.


I have been meaning to start a hoopla wall and here is my very first hoop - a mini grim reaper.


Just when you thought the tinyness couldn't get any more awesome - M&C made me itty bitty origami cranes, a tiny painting (just over 1cm across) and book about Hawaii. This book would have to be my absolute fave item from the package (yep even more than the skully things) each page has a little factoid about Hawaii accompanied by a picture and it is only 1" tall!


Everything together. In the background you can see a couple of the gorgeous photos and postcard that M&C included with her package.


Thankyou so much S. I love everything! You absolutely nailed my tastes and i can only hope that my package for you is a fraction as amazing as this  Smiley

Hello all! Just a reminder that the final send out date for ALL partners is this Thursday (May 31st). Some have already sent and received, but there are MANY people that I haven't heard from yet (which I take to mean you are working up to the last minute like I am). That's fine, but please pm me if you know you will be sending late - it's only fair to your partner (and to me! Smiley).

Loving the packages I see so far!

Sent out my package, but after seeing some of the stuff others have sent so far I'm kind of worried that the one I sent will be lackluster or not enough. Sad When in doubt, since we're gonna be pen pals I can just send some more stuff next time!

Ok, I think I have updated the first page with everybody's sending status so far. Please take a look and let me know if I missed anything or if you think your status is wrong.

I sent my package to Ewulotta on Wednesday...I haven't had the best of of luck sending to Germany in the past, but hopefully this one will get to my partner in a timely manner! Smiley

I use the mug rug every day that Ceda sent me, and wear the headband at least once a week and get so many compliments on it!  My DD was AMAZED at the postcard of the cheetah's art too. 

And Ceda received my package as well!  (Finally!  I think DH attached it to the back of a snail to mail it to her.  Tongue)

Can't wait to see this gallery explode!
