I presume it's decorated for the Fourth of July? Do they do Christmas, Hallowe'en, etc? I think if I had a Little Free Library, I wouldn't be able to resist using it as an excuse for holiday decorating!

Looking forward to doing a bit of book shopping this week. It's all for my partner, of course. I have enough books of my own already!  Wink

I received my last package, from Kartiana.





Three great papers and a sweet extra, with a tiny card. I especially like the use of impromptu stamps.

I was a bit covetous of that dark purple and teal one, but now I have some of my own! Look how beautiful this is up close:



Thanks for this, and thanks to all of my partners for the amazing variety of boards you sent.

I'm thrilled to have the amazing alteredmommy as my partner! Not only is she one of the Craftsters that I've actually met, but even though we're on opposite sides of the country, we can take advantage of Canada Post's new 5 kg flat rate box. That's a lotta books and chocolate. Cheesy

I received from anna.wahnsinn today. The mail between Canada and Germany has really been flying this time.



Four lovely masterboard pieces. Look at the detail:





I love the complexity of these. Thank you, Anne!

Today is the last day for sign ups! If you are on the fence-ya better jump in now!

Oops! Not paying enough attention. Jumping right NOW!

And that Little Library is inspiring, not taunting!

I love those little lending libraries. Do you guys have them in your neighborhoods?

There's a children's one that I pass on my way to the streetcar stop in the morning, and a regular one a couple of blocks from us. We've been talking about having one ourselves because we read a lot of books, and it'd be a great way to "dispose of" them. But being me, I can't decide what it should look like - should it be a miniature Taj Mahal? Steampunk? Gothic? Richardsonian Romanesque? Queen Anne Revival? Should it have lighting? A weathervane? Columns? My partner Ian is like "Just stick a door on a crate and put it on a post, already!" But he ought to know by now that's not how I work. Meanwhile, the books are piling up...

I've received from four of my six partners now - BigBangMomma, geekgirl1000100, craftylittlemonkey and megwell.

From BBM, with her great selection of extras packed into a tiny envelope:




From geekgirl1000100:



From megwell, with offcut:



And from craftylittlemonkey, a classic CLM envelope packed with printed papers, book pages, wrapping paper, colouring pages, sheet music and much more:




Note the photocopies of some other CLM collages, including one of cut up credit cards!

And then there's the actual masterboard that CLM sent:



I love all these boards, and I can hardly wait to find things to do with them. Thanks, all!

Ooh! This was a lot of fun last year. I'll get my questionnaire in this weekend!

Everything I make looks better through someone else's eyes!

I received similarly fabulous boards from BBM and Geekgirl yesterday - I'm going to wait til CLM's arrives (probably tomorrow) and post all three together. I can hardly wait!

I'm okay with either date, or the previous one.

Hope Jim is okay, Kathy. We'll miss him for sure.
