We received a stuffed envelope from Hailey and Chloe today!
Shelina will correct me if I get this wrong, because the cards are already taped to be the bedroom door, but I believe Hailey made the Snow White card and Chloe made Mickey Mouse for Juliet as well as a bonus card for Jordan. There was also a lovely drawing of Mickey Mouse that I didn't get a picture of.



Thank you so much girls!

Once upon a time my father thought he could take apart and tune a second-hand piano we had picked up since he had once had a job in college doing that. Long story short - he couldn't and the lovely wooden pieces of the piano started to gather dust in our basement. So finally I grabbed this one and decided to turn it into something...a lot of ripping and modge-podging later...this is what appeared. I stole the knobs from my father's workbench as well...amazing the stuff you find down there. Smiley There was another piece with beautiful molding I had plans for but alas we moved and no one thought it worth saving.

This is the first card I've received for my State Nickname theme (I have a big project in mind for these if I ever get all fifity...and fifty state postcards...this might take several years of swapbot and craftster). It is a wonderful Sunshine State card from AmandaBL!
I love the sun...its sooo...not boring lol. It's lovely!




 I know what you mean about 'snowbirds' AmandaBL, here in South Texas we have 'winter texans' and since I'm one of like 20 young non-hispanic girls in town I get A LOT of questions since they automatically assume I speak English well. Smiley

Jordan came home sick from school today but was happy to find his Snoopy card from WideEyedLife, it came just in time. There was also a Davy Jones poster from Pirates of the Carribean. I don't know how you knew he liked that but its now up next to his Captain Jack poster. Smiley Thanks from both of us!

Some more amazingly beautiful cards arrived today! I am such a happy camper!

First off, from MaRut for my theme of owls....*gasp* Wow, just wow. I can't wait to show my brother, I'm sure it will be his new favorite!




And then from sabrinalouisemiller for "red and gold". It's a griffin which is great because it kind of reminds me of Harry Potter. Smiley


I'm working on an idea of how to display all my owl cards ( I have a lot ), and I might just have to include the griffin too lol

Aww, unfortunately Juliet is in bed so I'll have to show her this in the morning. Raven is actually a half teacup poodle/toy poodle. Juliet and him have a love/hate relationship because she likes to dress him and put him in her baby stroller.  Wink

Thanks for all the compliment on the Marie Antoinette card, I have to try to make up for my lack of drawing skills somewhere...

But speaking of fabulous drawing skills, here's a card from WideEyedLife I received today!



The quote is from Victor Hugo's Les Miserables
And the translation:
"One day, Cosette chanced to look at herself in her mirror, and she said to herself: 'Really!' It seemed to her almost that she was pretty. This threw her in a singularly troubled state of mind. Up to taht moment she had never thought of her face."

I need to work on my tiny handwriting, that's a lot to fit on a little card. Smiley

I received two cards today which was very nice after being up all night with the stomach flu....*sigh*

But the first is from MandyKaye who did my theme of an interpretaton of the phrase "Delphiandreams" (my email and sn on many many sites...not sure why I didn't chose it here). She will correct me if I'm wrong, because I can't find where I laid down the card but I believe she explained the girl as floating away on a dream. I think it is absoluetly lovely!



The second is from curiousfae and is for my Russian theme. It's a lovely card of Russian Ballerina Anna Pavlova. Thank you!

I am a woman in love! Dyani claimed me for my fairly new category of 80s/90s Kids Show so its the first card I have for this theme, and its an amazing start. She made me a card for Mr. Roger's Neighborhood (which yes, good guess, was one of my favs. Smiley ) but take a look....the card has a CARDigan. He-he. And it's really soft too, I want one. This is also her first claim for her first swap so now that it's been received I hope she claims some other folks so we get to see more of her great work. Smiley Thanks so much!
