11  Re: Box of Sunshine Round 2 in The Swap Gallery by zcrafter on: May 01, 2016 10:26:36 PM
I received a box of sunlit goodness from SonjaBoo, and she definitely spoiled me!

All the goodies:

Where do I start? Well, in the center, be sure to check out the chattering teeth! One even has a rose in its mouth. I laughed so hard when I saw this!

Also, dog treats, paper straws, lemon tea, paper lemonade cups, a sun paper decoration, Burt's Bees lip balm, tiny roses, ribbon trims, paper tags with jute, highlighters, goldfish crackers, a twisty ruler, buttons and baubles, glitter, a flowerpot flower, a JOY journal, a set of felt citrus coasters (straight from my Pinterest wishes) and a cute handmade fabric flower pin with a strawberry in the center.

Closeup of the coasters and pin:

THEN, there is this. A birdy pillow cover, also from my Pinterest wishes. It looks so cute in my living room!

Thank you so much, SonjaBoo! What a wonderful swap partner you are.

I'm back from vacation at Williamsburg, and Hawk has been patiently waiting in her box. Finally we meet. Here she is with the handmade gifts she brought along -- a lovely scarf, moon ornament, and fabric feather keychain (maybe it's an ostrich feather?).

She looked a bit overwhelmed when she met some of the natives.

This particular native (Brooke) was not so sure which was more interesting, Hawk or the camera.

But just to be safe, I assigned her to a special shelf in the china cabinet, next to my corn maiden.

I understand she enjoys the outdoors, so we will definitely be exploring the Pennsylvania Wilds. It's still quite cold and rainy here, but we're hoping for some sunshine.

Welcome, Miss Hawk!

After packing for her Oregon adventure, Flobot spent a few minutes saying goodbye to her family here at home:

Then, off to the post office! They said she should arrive by Thursday.

Flobot jumped onto the keyboard when she heard she's been approved for a Duck Hostel trip to ... somewhere!

I am so happy for her.

As promised, here are pics of the angel goodness I received from geekgirl1000100.

First, a collection of items that show how she spoiled me. Clockwise from back left: a journal, owl tangle notecard, washi tape magnetic bookmarks, hair ties, sewn paper bookmark (LOVE THIS!), framed cat tangle (which is now on my living room wall), package of trims, sketchbook, mini clothespins, origami Post-its, and a crocheted dishcloth.

Then, ehrmagerd, a small box covered with book page pieces, and they were taken from some text about WRITING! It was filled with buttons, beads, charms, etc.


Oodles of papers, plus coloring pages:

More papers, and laser cuts:

EIGHT rolls of washi tape,  trims, cards

In among all that, she included foreign language papers (requested on my questionnaire), two washi thank you cards, envelopes, music sheets, and plenty of patterned cardstock (also requested on my questionnaire).

I am SO grateful. Thank you, geekgirl100100.

Lolo_ has been busy with real life, so here are some pics of the package I sent to her.

In the bottom of the box I packed an old book on mysteries of the world. Since Lolo_ seems to like creepy things, she should be able to find some photos she likes in that. Also a small vintage poetry book and other things:

Then ---

Bookmarks and vintage library book cards/envelopes:

Variety of book pages and sheet music:

Travel brochures and some vintage notes and receipts that I found in library books:

Watercolored papers for backgrounds:

Printouts of Harry Potter themed stuff, including some miniature labels for potions:

I crafted a few things. Set of owl notecards with Harry Potter quotes:

And two sets of inchies. I forgot to photograph the owl inchies, but here are the skull inchies:

A blurry closeup:

It was great fun collecting all kinds of things to fill the box!

Here, at last, are the pictures of the great stuff I received from goddessgarb. First, the whole shebang, although I had to stack a lot of it just to get it in the shot. On the left, pages from a Victorian children's book (rather creepy), followed by puzzle pages, atlas pages (I adore maps), patterned and flocked papers of all sorts, vellum sheets, and even a Blick catalog. How did she know I just love looking at art supplies?

There are also some sheets/graphs from some kind of financial book. Lord knows I need financial help, LOL.

Being partners with goddessgarb must have been ordained by the universe, because I LOVE marbled papers, and she happened to have a stash of them. This makes me smile:

They will most definitely find their way into some of my cards and mixed media art. BTW, goddessgarb has been helping me navigate my way through the world of mixed media. She is such a good coach and supporter!

Now a shot of some of my most favoritest things:

I'm going to have a LOT of fun using items from this new stash. Thank you, smmart, for pairing us. Thank you again, goddessgarb, and let's remain long-distance friends!

It looks like aunty.hela has been busy with "real life," so here's a picture of the anchor hoopla I sent her. I also included fabric scraps, buttons, and candy, but those didn't make it in the picture.

Thank you, Januarians, for a wonderful swap. And a special thank you to phnxreign99 for organizing! I love all my goodies, and I compiled all the swap birthday cards from my packages for this photo:

Have a great year!
