Lovley PL, fluffypants!

I also received from alexampersandra today! She also chose the bohemian/brass theme.

The pic is a little off kilter because of the glare, but is t it nice? The outlines are brassy ink and each pocket is a different color.

Here are the goodies!! A length of bakers twine, Some iridescent papers, beads, washi samples, coloring pages, a fabric scrap, a little notebook, a pretty orange flower patch, and of course, a letter! You have really cool handwriting, btw!

Thanks for swapping with me, alex!

Lol thanks!  Grin the story behind the mustaches: for his birthday, we took pics cosplaying Poppa in the 1980s  (their grandpa, my dad). Here are the side by sides (thumbnails because it's kinda OT, but cosplay is a craft, isn't it?)

Pretty heart alert! I received from curiousfae yesterday and am delighted.

She sent two lovely hearts, the first one is a picture frame with watercolor mosaic tiles which I have already filled with a picture of my boys and put up in my studio

Next is a beautiful ceramic heart sign painted with alcohol inks with one of my favorite phrases. I really love the colors on this.

And Finally, Kelli spoiled me with stickers because she knows I'm a sticker addict Smiley

Thank you so much! I love all of it. What a great swap, pal!

Here is my beautiful colorful pocket letter from Quaggy! She chose my bohemian bright colors and brass theme, and it's perfect.

Look at the tassles and the brass... My favorite is the one that says "Good Vibes" because I need good juju daily Smiley

And all the awesome ephemera and other goodies. The foxy clips are fab. They went straight into my planner.

She also included an "about me" letter that I really enjoyed reading. I think those should be standard for swaps! I just loved learning more about Robin aka Quaggy. Thank you so much!

I've got a few projects to share. I've been meaning to update my list and post topics on my projects, but I always run out of free time before I can post. So I'll just picdump... I've got others I've been working on, but don't want to post Swap spoilers!

I was able to start and work on Curiousfae's heart on and off yesterday. I'm really excited about how it's turning out. I'll be able to finish up by next week Smiley

Here's a teaser pic:

Oh man, that AliExpress site looks very dangerous for my pocketbook...

Very dangerous, indeed. It's already shattered my resolve to not buy more stickers. There were bird and kitty stickers, I seriously lost all control.

In other news, I used some of the blank medical labels smmarrt sent me in the destash swap! I gelli printed a couple of them and then cut them into lil flag stickers. Now I want to make different color ones, too. Some greens, blues, purps.

Awesome hauls! What great stuff to share.

After a confusing tropical detour to Puerto Rico, my packge from Smmarrt has arrived and I'm excited to show off what goodies I received and happy to add another awesome package to the gallery!

It was so hard to photograph everything... there was just so much! Some maps, colorful decorative napkins, doilies, a blank brown paper bag journal to embellish...

Embellishments galore and all shapes and sizes and styles of envelopes and paper sacks, along with lots of variety of book pages of several languages.

Tons of colorful die cuts and a variety of tags to decorate

Lots and lots of colorful cards, tags, ephemera and project life cards that will be perfect inserts for my planner.

And finally, some beautiful gelli prints and marbled papers, to my delight!

Thank you so much, Smmarrt! What a great swap. I feel like I can craft for months on what you sent, alone. Lots of new goodies to play with!

I've been drawing and making things when I aughta do laundry and stuff, too. My kiddos have gotten over their illnesses (which they spread to me, woohoo) so they've been being comparatively really well behaved and play nicely while I craft and doodle.

The other night I made some altered paperclips. I want to make some more complex ones, but this is a start! Yet another use for scraps. It's like inchies, but functional paperclips.
