Have swapped with IsikkahJai before, I guessed her journal would be amazing!! And the poppet is just lovely.

AWWWWWWW BLUSHIES!!!!  Thanks seeuudee! Cheesy Trust me Silvermoon, you deserved EVERY BIT of that package. I have always gotten fantastic packages from you and I feel good having given something back that I think was equally fabulous -^^- Besides....we both needed the pick me up, dontcha say?
  And I'll consider making a "Ruby" for your 8 yo.  Grin I do have some lovely red fabric....  Grin

 BTW...Did you know Amy can stand on her own? It takes some fussing with the feet and she has to be completely straight-backed but she CAN stand, a phenomenon rarely accomplished on purpose with poppets. Here's a few more crappy pics of her and some of MY fave pages from the journal  Wink (forgive me if the images are wonky. IDK how to resize pics Tongue)

some costume details....

Hanged Man Page

F*&K HOLIDAYS! page (lol with a zombie-fied cherub  Grin )

Some of my BETTER drawings page

And the page I stared my journal with, My Wedding page ^^

Poor Susan, I did my journal as random and impossible as I could. No two pages were in order and some were even upside down! I felt bad so at the very last minute I labeled them for her, lol. I had the BEST time doing this swap, even though it was a the crappiest month EVER. <3 you Silvermoon!!

Okay, thanks for your patience. I've updated another bunch of swappers. If I don't pass out from fatigue as soon as I get home, I'll send out a PM to check on the rest of you.

Fun stuff - huge stuff..

Journal Cover top!

Yarn, beautiful yarn - I think I'd use this stuff for a head band and a couple of handwarmers!

Thank you, Jennickell.  I was SPOILED - it was a huge *** box!  I love everything - I can't believe that you love fun retro adverts!

Some fun pages!  Memes, silly memes!  Cheesy

I handcarve stamps, knit and have organic catnip.

I received from PlumCrafty and I was sooo spoiled! Here's everything she sent still in their wrapping (and two postcards! Cheesy):

(please ignore the random stuff above)

Everything unwrapped:

See all the extra stuff she sent me! A pouch, necktie wristlet (my phone fits in it perfectly!), Brit tissues and ribbons, and a handcarved TARDIS stamp.

Here are a couple of my favorite pages (sorry for the pic-spamage)

Again, thank you so much, PlumCrafty. I plan to read through and savor the journal this weekend. Cheesy

This really is the "gallery of awesome." I am awed....

Such amazing, artistic journals! Wish I could see every single page of every single one!!

Everything here looks absolutely amazing and I love this idea. I hope I can participate in the next swap like this.

PM me if you are interested in being my pocket letter pen pal. Smiley

I have received from Schnerby and I was spoilt.

Extras first:

Chocolatey and sugary goodness - I was controlled enough to get a photo before diving in, but that did not last long!  Grin

Some socks knitted by her Grandmother - they are so soft. Although we are technically in summer here in the UK, it is not showing any signs of getting warmer, so these may be used sooner rather than waiting til Winter!

A stunning bracelet using an eggshell technique - it is so pretty.

Then the journal itself - it is made out of an old book (called The Laughing Stranger - which intrigues me!)

It looks like some pages have been cut out to make space for extra bulk to be added. I love the idea.

And some random pages - I don't have any favourites yet, as I have not had a chance to sit down and read it fully yet, but there are some great pages.

And a painted picture of a hot air balloon, which I am going to frame - it is stunning!

Thank you Schnerby - it was a great package and thank you Kitten Wrangler for organising us all.

Naw... The balloon was a scene from a dream I had and I wanted to get it down visually rather than attempt to describe it to you! If I'd know it was going on display I'd have lined the balloon to make it pretty.

Seeuudee's journal is pretty interesting as well. I've photographed it and will put them up this afternoon when I get home.  Grin
