I received my fab package from when_i'm_sixty4 today!  Wah hoo! 

First, I received three books...



Well, okay, one is for me, and the other two are for my little guy.  LOVE the cute alphabet book.  I plopped right down and read them to him and he batted at the pages and cooed... he is only 3 months, so the fact that he stayed happy for the time it took to read them was an accomplishment! 

My book is Ella Minnow Pea, which I have been wanting to read, and have probably picked up and put down about 5 times at book stores.  I'm pumped to finally have it to enjoy.  And the bookmarks are totally awesome, too! 



The made one is a funky braided one with a bead at one end and an adorable mushroom charm at the other end!  I LOVE mushrooms and anything woodland, and sat and batted at the charm for a minute, smiling like a total dork.  I sometimes think I have some cat DNA in me.  The other ones are sweet little happy monsters that are magnetic.  So cute.  I like the one with headphones on the best. 

Then the crafted items: 



Another fabulous bag to add to the gallery.  I'm not sure if when_i'm_sixty4 meant to have a "letter" theme, but she did... the book is an epistolary novel (excuse me, my geeky English major is showing), one of the children's book is an alphabet book, and the bag and coffee sleeve have adorable alphabet fabric on them.  I have thrown the coffee sleeve in the diaper bag for coffee runs!  No more wasteful cardboard for me when I forget my travel mug!  (with mommy brain, it happens more often than remembering!)

And finally....



Mmmfff... oh, sorry,did you want to know what that was?  I had chocolate covered marshmallow shoved in my mouth.  Can't talk now, must... mmmff... nom... mmmfff... peanut butter truffle... mmmfff.

Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee eee!!!!!!!!! I received my package from jellybean89 today... eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee eeeeeeeee!!!! (running around squealing!)

Jellybean89: I love love love love love you!! And the package... and .............. well: here are pics!!!

I've never read any of the LOTR/Hobbit books... my first attempt in high school was reading The Silmarillion and couldn't do it, so never touched the rest. I finally watched the movies this year. The Hobbit in theaters, then a friend sat me down for back to back LOTR's. I put "Real all the books" on my list of things to do this year, so put them on my list... and SHE BOUGHT ME THE WHOLE SET!!!


(and yes: it's a BOXED set)

Then... the bookmarks! Minus 2 ribbons she sent along as bookmarks. Sassy cat got too excited and stole them out of the photo shot before I could snap it.

One is a corner bookmark, one is origami folded heart, the long heart bookmark also has a kitty stamped on the back but I couldn't get that to photograph no matter how I tried. For those that don't know me: I LOVE hearts. And Love. And Books, but that's why we're all here Cheesy

Last... and perhaps unintended... Sassy cat loves her new paper stash (in addition to her 2 ribbons... I'm trying to steal them back)

Leslieshappyheart, thank you for that inspirational thought!  One of my embroidery patches is going on the altered book journal I just started altering!! 

I'm loving all the packages everyone is receiving!  So much awesome!  I agree that a Hitchhiker's Guide swap would lots of fun!  Think of the towels!!

EclecticDreamer, I'm a little jealous of you, reading the LOTR series fresh.  I love immersing myself into a new imaginative world!  Yay for books!

Oh! And forgive me... There was another item, and I'm just as excited about it. It's sitting next to me at my computer while I agonize over hanging it up at home or at my desk at work. Wherever it hangs, I'll be happy Cheesy

It's a framed collection of quotes from The Princess Bride, with "As You Wish" in large print in the very center.

Sadly, I'm not able to get a photo that turns out Sad

It starts, appropriately enough, with "When I was your age, television was called books."

Calixita, I am so happy you loved everything! I love how we sent the same book to eachother! This has been an awesome swap and you were a wonderful partner! p.s. can I steal borrow your pic of the Marvin hoop? My pics didn't come out as nicely as yours did.  Wink

This gallery has really been amazing! The owl post and read hoops are so cute as are the mushroom and origami heart bookmarks. We are a talented bunch of crafters!  Smiley

Jellybean89 emailed me... "I think you missed something. Check inside the blue paper". I uncrumpled and folded 2/3 of the paper she stuffed in the box before I found it (it was in the green paper). okay... I actually found the paper holding the surprise extra, and finished uncrumpling and folding ALL the paper first... Hm... OCD??? Anyhow...

A Happy Pill!!! (or is he a "Meh" pill? Since he's not technically smiling? But he's cute!!)



Sorry about the sideways pic. I couldn't figure out how to straighten it up.

Too much great stuff that I can't comment on it all but I have been pinning!

I also received a fabulous package from RougeRaven.  She sent me a book I have been quite curious to read The Book of Lost Things.  I am almost finished with my current book and can't wait to dive into this one.http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/133588_01Mar13_Picture_011.jpg

Inside the book was a Harry Potter themed bookmark which I just adore.  It's already being displayed on my Harry Potter shelf along with other Harry themed swap goodies I have received and of course my HP books.

Finally a Harry Potter hoop straight from my Pinterest!  Owl Post anyone???  This is already up on my hoopla wall which I have found needs to be expanded some!
http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/133588_01Mar13_Picture_010.jpg

Thanks so much Rouge Raven.  I love everything!!!

I am so glad you like everything! I had a lot of fun making the hoop =) I am also halfway through the book you sent me, The Long Walk and it is fantastic! Thank you again!

When_im_sixty4, you sent your partner a wonderful package!  How sweet to include books for her baby!  I love the mushroom bookmark!  And the CUTE bag and matching coffee cuff are really awesome!!

Jellybean89, isn't it nice when your partner gets so excited about her package? The set of LOTR is really nice and generous of you, as are the three heart boomarks!  The framed print is neat, and so appropriate for this swap.  HAPPY PILL!  So cute!! Nice work!
