1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Winter Book Swap Gallery on: Today at 09:31:54 AM
I received a lovely package from calluna!

For books she sent The Ocean at the End of the Lane and a guide to the Black Dagger Brotherhood series by J. R. Ward.  She also included one of my favorite chocolates ever, Ritter Sport's dark chocolate filled with marzipan.  Goodness I love marzipan....  ::sigh::  And a beautiful hand painted bookmark, with a picture of what I believe is my own dog, Astrid Marzipan Pugglesworth-Ingram, (who chose to hyphenate when she joined our family, and whose middle name is an ode to one of my aforementioned favorite sweet treats).

Here's a detail of the bookmark.  The book she's reading is The Lovely Bones, and on the side it says "With each passing page she became more convinced that she had not in fact found a cookbook and that there would be no pictures."  

She also included some lovely extras.  Vintage Strawberry Shortcake doll friends, Blueberry Muffin and Raspberry Torte, and some clothes for what I'm guessing are Huckleberry Pie and Lemon Chiffon?

And a fold-up reusable shopping bag and some sea glass.  Everything came wrapped up in fun sparkly fabrics, but I forgot to get a pic before unwrapping everything.

Thank you calluna!

4  Craft Swaps / ACTIVE SWAPS WHERE SIGN-UP PERIOD HAS CLOSED / Re: HP Holiday Ornament & Stocking Stuffer Swap - Round 2 (SU CLOSED; SO 12/12) on: Today at 07:18:31 AM
Well, the app has finally pooped out and won't even let me log in anymore. I did finish, however, and sent to PhoenixWolf on the original send out day. I pm'd both PhoenixWolf and our organizer but I did it on the app so please let me know if you never got it. I've just hopped on the computer today and saw that 3 posts I had done the other day never actually posted and now I'm anxious.  Embarrassed

I did get your PM letting me know you sent.  Thank you for checking!!!

Note from the Organizer....

Since holiday time has been rough on so many of us, (and since my parents literally just drove away after being houseguests for 8 days), I'm officially extending sendouts till Wednesday, to give everyone who needs it a bit of breathing room.  It's a Christmas (Swap) Miracle!  I hope this helps folks who were worried about being late.   Kiss Kiss Kiss
8  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / UNITED STATES / Re: Craftster Meetup ~ April 26-28, 2019 in Asheville, NC! on: December 10, 2018 09:56:26 AM
Anna and I have been talking on the IYP thread and she has agreed to teach us her beaded jewelry! This event just keeps getting better and better.

You are so sweet! Just be aware that you may not go home with a finished piece, even if we are only doing bracelets. The actual beading is very easy and relaxing as soon as you see the pattern in the little bit of glass in your hand though, and the projects are absolutely portable.

That's great!  I've added your workshop to the list on the front page.

Mistress Jennie sent me a double load of goodness! Mr. Penumbra's 24-hour Bookstore, and The Sugar Queen. I hadn't heard of either, and I'm super excited to get started reading because they both sound fantastic!

I can't claim credit for discovering the Sugar Queen.  Pinkleo sent it to me as an extra in a swap about 5 or 6 years ago, and it got me hooked on everything Sarah Addison Allen writes.  The Sugar Queen and Garden Secrets are my favorites of hers though. 

As for Mr. Penumbra, I don't remember how I got on that book, but I adore it, and I try to get everyone I know to read it.  I think I convinced Abbeeroad to do so.  I tend to re-read it when I want to feel good about the world.  It reminded me a lot of my theatre & Craftster friends.  As Clay pulls various friends together in his quest to unlock the secrets of the bookstore, I was reminded of all the various and unusual talents of those friends, and especially of their willingness to jump in and help me with anything, just because I asked them to.  If any of you are audio book fans, the audio version is excellent, and actually one of the major plot reveals is even better when heard on the recording, because the very act of hearing an actor read the lines, along with a pinch of technical jiggery-pokery, makes it much clearer than reading it off the page in your own head. 

Love that Nancy Drew art!

Seriously though!  It's adorable.
