Pioneer9 is not able to post photos, so I am posting for her.  Smiley   She received today and here is what I sent.  Smiley 


The book and one side of the bookmark:


The second side of the bookmark:


Detail of the sparklies and flowers of bookmark:

The paper is handmade, but not by me. 

The pendant I stamped for her:


And the artwork I made for her:

Watercolor, gouache, ink.  Inspired by her wists.   Matted in purple sueded mat.

And a different shot to try and show off the silver paint I used.   Smiley



I really enjoyed crafting for you, Pioneer9!   Cheesy

Great package, Avesthel! The bookmark is really pretty (I don't recognize the quotes, are they related to the book?) I DO recognize the quote on the pendant! Nice stamping, that's a cool craft. The framed artwork is beautiful. Great work!

Thank you, Leslieshappyheart!   Smiley

The quotes are not related to the new book, but are some of Pioneer9's favorite quotes. 

Quotes:
"Forever is composed of nows." (Paper Towns by John Green)
"It takes ten times as long to put yourself back together as it does to fall apart." (Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins)
"I wanted to ask her how the same thing could be so ugly and so glorious, and its words and stories so damning and brilliant." (The Book Thief by Markus Zusak)

And for those who haven't read it, the "Real or not Real" quote is from the Hunger Games series.   Smiley

The package I sent to theatreorchid is MIA, so I am recrafting.

I sent two books, two book marks and this:



It reads:
Kingdoms need their castles
just as dragons mighty scales
without a quest or vision,
there's no magic in the tales
I savor deeds of wonder,
told in prose or told in rhyme
May I never grow too old
to treasure "Once upon a time"

For her future craft room/library. Cheesy

I didn't take pictures of the books I bought. (Confessions of a Shopaholic and another book by her as a bonus... I forget the title). And I made a bookmark with a dangle book and beads and another stretchy one, but I didn't take pictures of those either.

I am still hopeful it will show up, even if it's not until after my new package arrives.  Cheesy

That's a really cool and beautiful cross stitch piece!  I love the poem, it's so perfect for this swap!  I do hope it shows up some day, it would be a shame to lose that forever.

and i received from my awesomest partner jfer007!!!!

now im even more stoked to read "A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius"...cause she also knitted me a terrific bookmark to match the cloth on the cover of the book. i did my best, jfer, to show the stitches on the bookmark:


and a SLEW of stitched paper--Bible verse--gift tags!


here's one up close. i have a congregation full of friends that would LOOOVE these!

im thinking these would be pretty great book marks themselves.

well the hoop that she made me just plain rocks. i am not only a news junkie but i am specifically a NYT junkie and she joined that with stitching of my three favorite fuzzies: tut, kish and nash:


jfer, i am so excited and so grateful! thank you so much for this fantastic package. im awesomely amazed!

Wow, great package jfer007!  A knitted bookmark?! What a great idea, it is really pretty!  The Bible verse gift tags are another great idea!  And the hoop!  Too cute! I can't believe you personalized it with Susan's actual cats! That is too cool, what a great gift.
