Oh goody I am glad you like it.  This was my first swap so I was nervous.  Here are some pics of what I sent wasabipeasrule.  Of course I was a moron and forgot to photograph the other things before I sent.


The Sg. Pepper's mug.  I saw that wasabipeasrule posted she loved coffee once so I thought this was appropriate.  I got a mug that had an insert that you could change the picture in, and I cut out these things for it.


Ringo box:  I am really happy with the pictures I was able to get for the box.  It was my first attempt at decopauge ever, so sadly I did have a few bumps I tried my best to even out.  I hope it survived the mailing process intact!

And the other two...you will have to wait for her!

AAAAH! I got THE MOST INCREDIBLE package from onemosphere the other day!

She sent:

- the world's best purse with the Revolver album cover on it and it's sewn onto this awesome flower fabric ... it has a quote sewn on from "I'm Only Sleeping" on there and a change pocket inside. I've already gotten comments. AWESOME



- a wristlet with strawberries sewn on, and "Strawberry Fields Forever" on the flip side (I'm using this to keep my lipstick and compact in, inside my incredible new purse)...AWESOME



- fridge magnets of ALL the Beatle album covers - my my kids put them up immediately, trying to guess which order they go in... anyway, the look HOT on my fridge...hubby came home from a trip and said "What's all this?" He thinks it's great and it is!

AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME

If any of you ever get onemosphere as a swap partner, you are in good hands. She is an EXCELLENT seamstress (I'm jealous!) and this was her FIRST swap!


THANK YOU JULIA !!! Grin Grin Grin

(PS: How many times did I say 'awesome'?)

Wow sounds awesome!  I am so excited for my package to arrive too!  Seriously--how can someone make a sucky Beatles craft?  It's not possible.

I know. If it's got the Fabs on it, it has to be good.

HairstylinMama should have her package any day now - (((crosses fingers)))

Yeah, about that - it doesn't help when you don't remember to take pictures until you're in line at the post office.  I was in such a rush, because I had been in Vegas for Halloween, to get it out in time that I just completely forgot to take pictures.  But man oh man, I'm just so happy that you liked it so much!

I know my package is waiting for me at my apartment complex, but I was at a meeting in Chicago on Monday and yesterday and didn't get back until super late last night.  I want to go home NOW and get it, but somehow this work thing is getting in my way.  Now I know what box to look for though!  That is some awsome work on just the box - I can't wait to see what's inside.  I'll definitely be posting pics this evening.

Okay - so I rushed home from work and got to the apartment complex office where it was all dark and a sign was posted that they were closing early today and I let out an internal scream of "Noooooooooooo", but lucky for me I made it just in time and was able to retrieve my package.

Hairstylinmama sent me some INCREDIBLE stuff.  I am so so thrilled with what I received and I almost started crying when I saw what was on the top of the package, which was:

An embroidered pillow with the lyrics to Julia on it.  My name is Julia, as was my grandmother's, and that song has meant so much to me over the years and now I will forever have a pillow with the beautiful lyrics on it:



Then I spied this awesome Rubber Soul clock, which is my all time favorite Beatles album, and which is the source of many long discussions with other people about why I think it's the best:



Next I took out some awesome stamped Beatles cards, some with a Christmas-y theme - AWESOME!



AND then I pulled out the coolest corduroy messenger bag ever, with two nice big velcro pockets on the outside, underneath the flap.  Seriously, seriously cool!



Please excuse my cat Simon sniffing around in the upper corner, he too was just so excited that he couldn't stay out of the picture!

Underneath the flap:


Thanks so much Jennifer!  This is my first swap ever and you helped make it a great one!

Wow - so many great things!  I knew that box HAD to be full of cool Beatle goods!  The Julia pillow is really nice.... Hairstylinmama - it must have taken you forever to embroider the lyrics on there.
