Details of swap:
Who doesn't love a good book? And who doesn't love getting a good book without paying the ridiculous prices they are sometimes? In this swap, we will be swapping a book that you think your partner will enjoy. And since it isn't a swap without some crafty goodness, we will be making some goodies to send along with the books. Swappers will be matched as best as possible by what kinds of books they want and what kind they have to give.

We will swapping one book, a short note explaining why you enjoyed the book, and two small crafted items. Crafty or non-crafty extras are optional: please discuss with your partner before including anything else! You can craft things to help your fellow reading addicts, like library tote bags or bookmarks, or your crafts can reflect your partner's favorite stories and authors (a knitted Emily Dickinson, or a Slytherin pendent). Used is definitely accepted as long as it's in a decent condition. Don't send a copy of a book that you wouldn't want to read yourself due to its conditions.

Peihan sent this to me really early, but Ive been slow in posting pictures. Sorry for the poor quality as its from my phone.

Meet Mr. McPricklesworth! and his cucumber slice snack! He's so perfect and adorable.

Im hoping to post some better pictures tomorrow.

Free style posted all the wonderful things she made for me except for this...

Its a gorgeous pink and lime green christmas tree. The colors are brighter than they appear but my camera phone wouldnt cooperate and my camera has gone MIA.

Thanks for such a great first swap freestyle. I really loved everything!
