I just wanted to show off how I framed up my new embroidery from mthrasher.

It's already up in my bedroom for me to enjoy!  I'm saving the other patch for my journal.

I love the framed Princess Bride quotes.  Nice idea!

Such lovely crafty items! I am always so intimidated when I start looking through the gallery! You all are so talented!

I was even more intimidated when I received my package today from Staar84! She totally spoiled me! I am scheming some thank you items I  going to craft for her this weekend!



I received a book I have been wanting for ages! AND she embroidered this beautiful raven that is composed of lines out of my *favorite* Poe poem. How on earth did you get such tiny words so neat and legible?

I tried posting more detailed pics but for some reason when I do it from my phone, it just uploads multiples of the same darn pic! I will post details in a following post.

The bookmarks are so very cool too! The red one she made just for the book she sent along. They button at the bottom and fit perfectly! And them small blue one is magnetic.

Thank you so much Staar84! Keep an eye out next week for some thank you goodies!

I agree - that raven is incredible!! Gotta love some Poe inspire embroidery  Cheesy

Now I got some beautiful crafts of my own from the wonderful Ninaprettyballerina!

I was so excited to get the package so quickly - we are even in the same state  Shocked

First - here is the awesomeness that greeted me when I opened the box



The postcards Nina wrote me a note on are gorgeous in themselves and some sweet extras!



Oh My Goodness - Jeffrey Eugenides. I fell in love reading Middlesex and put 2 of his novels on my list. The Marriage Plot is his latest I think and I already started reading last night. I'm loving it!



Look at this loveliness - a handmade journal. It is put together so perfectly and I love the material and design on the inner sleeves. And as a sneaky little surprise there are authors names drawn on random pages throughout  Grin I included some of my favourites in the picture. Nina suggested it could be used to write notes and thoughts about things I read but I always have difficulties using handmade journals - they just seem too perfect to write in. I think I may use it as a basis for a bit of junk journalling.



I had pinned these pen-holder bookmarks and was secretly hoping for one - but got 2!! One is inspired by the 3 main characters in the Marriage plot and the second is reflecting one of my favourite colours -blue



There were these beautiful extras as well - bracelets in my favourite colours. I will be selecting an outfit tomorrow so I can wear one (or both - there are no rules!!)

Thank-you so much Nina - if you have better photos of anything please post them  Cheesy I love everything you made for me - and hope you love what I made for you half as much. I hope yours get's there soon!!

I can't believe the raven embroidery! Lovely!

The journal looks fantastic! I have always wanted to make a full size one myself but have only tried minis.
