so jealous...I adore lobster, here in ireland the cheapest lobster you can get is frozen, (and then only at certain times of the year) it is about 16USD for a small one, and I mean small, I'd happily eat two...or three... Smiley

babalina, it would be! You never know, my DD just started back on her last year of high school today, she has major exams in June and I was thinking of a big trip to the US and Canada next summer, I'd like to do a craftster tour and catch up with all the cool kids!

Yay, the postie rang my doorbell today, that could only mean one thing...a swap package!!

and what a fabulous one, I haven't been swapping in an age, so this was the first treat that the postman delivered in an eternity and it is brilliant, from the very generous Breegy

She claimed me for a stencilled item, I suggested a pillowcase for my daughter, who is bing bang and theatre obsessed. This is what she sent. She also added some mike and ike jellybeans for DD too (the plan is to keep these until christmas, but I am not sure I will be able to wait that long!)



and notice the packet of butter popcorn jellybellys...for me, the very best jelly beans in the best flavour in the world EVER...these were a suprise and very welcome..

This was the second pillowcase that she did, she told me that she wasn't happy with the first one, but she included it any way, in case i wanted to turn it into a bag. This is it, i think it is good, the paint stuck a little to itself, in transit, but a little touch up and I think a bag, oh oh, I have had a genius idea (so modest) I will turn it into a theatre journal/scrapbook for DD, she goes to london regularly to visit her dad and gets to see a lot of west end shows, if I make her a journal, I could use this for the cover..

anyway, enough waffling (can you tell I am really excited to receive a parcel!) this is the other pillowcase


thank you so much Breegy for making my return to swapping such fun!

Yay! I'm glad you liked the package! (and holy cow, it got there so fast) I was worried about sending it after being so frustrated with all of my attempts, I was feeling pretty self-conscious about my abilities. =( But now I'm not, because you liked it! That sucks that the grease one stuck together though, but yes, it is an easy fix.

These are the pens i used, btw, in case you want to make sure the color matches.

Yay! I'm glad she likes it. I just used a boxcutter to cut it out, it's a lot easier to handle than an exacto knife, in my opinion.

I received from cloud_berry this morning, and I LOVE what she sent me! She claimed me for some wall letters so I can add to my daughter's alphabet wall. The stupid mailman left the package on the edge of my porch while it was raining, so I when I walked out I was upset that the rain may have gotten to her package, but it was completely dry on the inside, thank goodness. Anyway, heres the goodies!



And here's an "action shot" with some other letters I have made my daughter: (they fit in well!)


Thank you so so so much, cloud_berry!
