Ohhh. I think I traded with her on an additional site..or maybe here. Can't remember. I am pretty sure I have some of these beads.

Yup they are yummy.

I enjoy this craft...Here you go...put on a good movie...sit in front of the TV, at the coffee table, and twirl, twirl, twirl. Lick and stick with the glue stick.

Take them outside day two when all things dry...and do what you like. I like just clear sealing mine, and love the colors that I have made...but if you don't like the colors....paint. I prefer spray, but acrylic from the bottle works.

Wow. You craftster friends...you get my juices flowing  Grin

I got this package last week but ended up have a crazy migraine that night. Sorry for not posting until today. My weekends are always crazy! Tongue
 Thanks so much! I am going to have fun coming up with something for this!

No problem!  I have a crazy month myself and haven't had a chance to get online myself...I have received from gozer but won't be able to post pics until at least tomorrow.  I have had a family emergency and was out of state for a while....trying to get caught up....

To start with, the adorable little card that OnyxNox sent along with her package:

Next, a collection of stamps and old post cards.

Vintage letters and cards! These are so very beautiful and amazing!

Old pages from books and magazines. She's right, some of the pictures and ads are beautiful in image and word.

There are some gorgous old magazine pages and some adorable stickers.

For the record, I love this map! It was one of my favorite items in the whole package, which is saying a lot considering how much I love just about everything in this one.

At this point I'm realizing I have over 20 pictures in my attempt to show everything. I'm not sure everyone want's to see all of that, so I'm going to start giving highlights. If I was wrong and others want to see every little thing, I'll happily go back and post more.

Kitty Ribbon!!! OnyxNox really took me at my word that I loved and adored cats.

Tiny happy kitty statues! These are really, really small! I really can not stress that enough. When I saw them for the first time, there may or may not have been squeeing to be heared.

I'm really looking forward to the fact that my boyfriend will be using the tiny little cat embellishment under the Hello Kitty tin (too cute!) to make me a necklace. I'll have to share what he does once it's done. Though it probably won't be until his classes let out for the semester.
I should also note those stickers arrived on a day when I was really not feeling well and in a lot of pain. Their messages were very timely and helped to perk me up.

With this last image, I'm thinking I'll have to make a scene with these embellishments. Not sure what all will be in said scene, but it's going to be a lot of fun playing around until I find something cute and amusing.

The answer is 42.

LOL - OK, and here I was thinking I did not send enough cat stuff - clearly I forgot what I packed in the envelope!

I love all the pictures. I can live vicariously...through your eyes and hands. The more images the merrier...in my book. Eye candy....yum.

What a great stash. you are so totally spoiled!

Paper beads! My sister got into making those a few years ago, and I was surprised at how elegant they can be. The ones I remember making when I was ten weren't so much. Tongue

Your haul from onyxnox includes some great stuff, Zaphinian. Those tiny, tiny cats must be variations on Maneki-neko, the Japanese (now Chinese too) good fortune cat. And I love the ads, too. "Intarsia Times Magazine" and "Champion Cheap Scissors" - you can't make that stuff up!

All envelopes are IN THE MAIL now, if they haven't already been received. That's one of the joys of a papercraft swap - airmail envelopes usually take almost no time to arrive! Thanks everybody for making this such a fun and super-easy swap to organize. Kiss

Thanks so much to you both!  Everything is so inspirational!  I can't wait to make something...I wish I didn't have to work tonight or I'd be in my craft room!

My turn!  My turn!  Get a cup of tea or something as this will take awhile Grin

So here's my goodies from Onyxnox.  Firstly, she sent me a small stuffed to the brim Altoid tin of little bits...My Mom instantly stole the enameled butterfly Grin

And THEN there was all the paper!
These are the adds she talked about in the forum, and yes they are super cool.  The super old one is on the left.  Check out the tiny corset!

This is my FAVO piece that Onyxnox sent.  I got to spend the night once with the Belugas at the VanCan Aquarium, so I know just what that little girl feel like Grin.
These are super cool in real life.  Some of these are kind of reflective, so they look a bit like an oil slick or opals.
I love the look of vellum, but never manage to buy any, so I'm tickled with this bunch.
I didn't know how to categorize this lot, but it's all super cool.  I love the tape measure grosgrain ribbon.
And last but not least, my very favo bits..

Thanks so much Onyxnox.  You sent a ton of stuff that I didn't have already and some things I know I will use somewhere Grin

I received such an enormous package from geekgirl1000100, that I had to brace myself and pull and maneuver it for like a minute to even get it out of the mailbox.  Cheesy  (Really!)  She included TONS of scrapbook papers, playing cards, book pages, sheet music, game pieces...so much stuff!  I love everything.

The item in the left corner of the above photo is actually a vintage pull out postcard of Florida flowers!  So cool!

And lots of stickers (for my collection Wink ) and two little tins of jewels, beads, buttons, and all kinds of whimsy!

Thank you for being such an awesome partner, geekgirl1000100!  And thank you to Wulf for organizing such a great swap!
