I received an amazing package full of goodies from PromisedHeartbrk today. I have a bunch of photos so I will do two posts.

First up, we both used 3-ring binders and created each page as the month went on. Mine is covered with Day of the Dead fabric, felt on the inside:



So many fun techniques and cool lettering and I haven't even read that much of it but here are a few favorite bits:

A fold-out quotes page with a pocket including more:



Recipes - great idea, wish I had thought of this!



(My coworker's daughter, aged 8, saw this page and she said immediately "Can we make these?" That's my girl!)

And there are about 5 of these TOTALLy cool Teesha Moore-inspired collages. LOVE THEM!



Next post will show off all the goodies.

TONS of great goodies:

The whole lot. Love the little envies and notes:



A felt flower hair pin:



Button bracelets and the supplies to make more. I'm wearing 2 already.



A plethora of fridge magnets made with glass or wood bases and paper:



A glass tile pendant:



And all kinds pf papery goodness:



Thank you, thank you, thank you, Amanda. A fun package to open and I have a lot of reading ahead of me tonight. Fortunately, it's cold and foggy here (hello, Summer in San Francisco!) so I can snuggle up and read.

Do we have a link to the gallery in the swap thread? I had to go looking for the gallery.

Awesome journals and extras so far! (I'm feeling guilty that I didn't put much more in other than the required small.. dern)

Oooh, I'm definitely feeling inadequate looking at all those gorgeous journals. I hope my non-journally things make up for it though!

According to my stats... 25% of journals have been received so far. 50% have been sent. Please, help these numbers get to 100% each, and give me a PM to let me know where you're at.

And what I'm seeing so far in this gallery is just gorgeous. GORGEOUS! Well done, all Cheesy

I received from VampAracely!



This is the gorgeous journal, and check out the little guy she made me!! Amazing! She sent some lollipops and chocolate pretzels too, but my family demolished those while watching England getting kicked out of the Euros last night!! ( Cry )



Each page has lots of writing and cool illustrations.



I have been hooked, she's such a great writer!!

Great swap, thank you so much!
