Yay, I'm so glad you liked the package pcollins (and you too rachel.in.rainbows) and that I am the start to your hoopla wall!

I liked the cover on this version of the book too, since the eye was also my pattern for the blackwork background.

As for room 101 ...

Great quote! It was funny, when Patrick opened the package, and I saw the hoopla, I went "OOOOO-OOO" in a very knowing tone of voice. Because room 101 is the worst thing in the world.

Okay guys. Sit down for this one. I seriously received THE most amazing package. I am still reeling. Titaniumhip, you figured me out TO A TEA (deliberate spelling!).

I was sent a copy of Alice in Wonderland. Now, the original Alice has beautiful drawings by John Tenniel. Which is great! I love them! But Titaniumhip one-upped ol' JT and sent me a version with illustrations by Ralph Steadman. Steadman also did the art for Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, and I have admired his particular style for a long time.



For the bookmark, I received the cutest little teacup! The teapot charm on the end is actually quite weighty, so it hangs wonderfully! This is so simple and sweet!



BUT LASTLY. A short backstory. I have seriously always loved Matryoshka Dolls (it was my first swap here on Craftster!) and I've always aspired to own my own set! Titaniumhip has fulfilled my desire! And she has done so with the most charming, beautiful, custom set of Alice M-dolls! Get ready to be jealous!



Titaniumhip, if you even like what I sent you HALF as much, then I will breathe a sigh of relief! Swap anxiety has returned now that such an amazing package is sitting in my living room. Thank you sooo much for swapping!

ok Titaniumhip, you are always one of the most amazing crafter/swappers around and you have outdone yourself.  That copy of the book is great and thoughtful, the bookmark sweet, but the matryoshka Alice set is unbelievable!  Your painting is swo great, love the style! that set is a true treasure.  I hit 'it rocks' right away.

I am so glad you like them!  I was stuck for a little and went back and forth between Alice and Watership Down.  But when I thought of the nesting dolls Alice made more sense!

Sooper fun swap!
