Figured I'd better get my backside into gear and post pictures of the envies I received from Smmarrt and dewshinesdopp!

Firstly smmarrt:
Print offs of vintage photos, chipboard elements, plain stickers, felt apple buttons, buttons, collage items - fish, butterflies, birds, bird eggs, fairies in jars (!) and people.



Do you know who the people in the vintage photos are Susan?

tickets of various types, luggage tags & envelopes, Tim Holtz Ideology labels, game cards, vintage library cards (remember using something similar when I was young!), patches, thread and an envelope labelled 'Look inside!'



And when I looked inside:



Keys!!

and a lovely blue glassine envelope with bird cutouts, a hand sewn felt broach (pin) and a small notebook with an up cycled coffee sleeve as a cover.




And from Dewshinesdopp.

I had been warned that there wasn't much in the way of supplies - but look at all these stickers!



a teddy bear punch and some sparkly green chipboard elements also snuck in there! I think the 2 monkeys on the right are my 2 boys in disguise - the grins are certainly cheeky enough!

And then there was this:



Matching earrings, bracelet and necklace. I ADORE these! especially the butterfly Grin



And the 'stamps' on the envelope are definitely being kept!

I just came back from holiday and found my package from mini_mum! (And I also had some catching up to do in the gallery; nice stuff!)
She sent me so many things that I couldn't get it all in one picture...ok, here it is:

Ribbons, paper, stickers, more stickers, kids craft set, little tags and other paper craft items..


Some verly lovely British items (love!), Kool-aid, post cards (I almost didn't see that one had actually a message on it from mini_mum), a little puzzle, a piece of an old map, washi tape (wow!) and some more interesting paper items.

The crafted items:

A little piece of art (is it an ATC? If so, it's my first one  Grin), a really pretty doily and two pieces of (spool knitted?) soft and comfy jewelry. I've been wearing the purple one all day; it's perfect!

Thank you, mini_mum, for the amazing package and for organizing this fun swap!

I buy vintage photos from the thrift store and flea markets and I make copies of them. So no, I don't know who they are. Just like to share the photos - I like to use them for books and card-making.

OMG I just realized that I never posted the pics that I took of the package I received from twistmysister (so sorry!). So, here they are:


She sent me all kinds paper, cards, images, recipes, whimsies,..


little pieces of fabric, cards, a key, and more cute paper bits and pieces.

The crafted items:

A cute bow and two lovely friendship bracelets. I especially love the one with the beads.

Thanks twistmysister for a wonderful package and sorry again for posting pics so late!

Not an ATC - if it is big enough you could cut it to the correct dimensions to make it into one - just a little bit of art work I did a while ago.
Again a no - I don't have a knitting bobbin any more, my childhood one got lost/thrown out/left behind at some point over the years, so these were all knitted i-cords.

So glad you liked everything and thank you for helping out and co-organising this with me!.

Someone has mentioned another round - any takers for October sometime?
