1  Re: Tim Burton Swap Round 3 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by Liralera on: February 28, 2008 10:08:30 AM
Aaaahh! I got my package on Tuesday. I just recently got my dumb camera to work... so!

All of it together

Cutest Jack drawing!

Jack and Sally Spiral hill pouch which I'm now using as a wallet!

Vincent Picture, and she drew a whole book for me, too!

The Vincent Book

Some of the pages:

Felt buttons!


Sweeney Todd:

I <3 Tim Burton!:

And my very favorite of all! Oogie Boogie!

Thank you so much perrywinkle! I hope that you like the stuff I've made you half as much as I loved the stuff you made me! I feel so spoiled! (Sorry that some of the pictures were so blurry!) Your art style is so adorable, I loved my book. I literally squealed when I pulled it out of the box! That's not a normal reaction! =D

Alright, I received 7 in the mail today! Which was really exciting because I had a bad day and mail brightens it considerably.

"There was about a week before I left on a bus to move to another state & star my life. (With somone) When I met the handsome mand I'd later marry @ a bowling alley. I fell head over heels and never left. My hubby doesn't know about me almost leaving on that bus."
Wow! I love this secret. It's like it was meant to be. I believe that things are meant to happen, and that's a big one!

"I'm afraid I'm going to LOSE the only relationship I've ever had because....I can't stop acting like my MOTHER!"
I know how you feel. I love my mom, but I can't act like her if I want to be in a relationship. She's been in one for a very long time, I have not. Or been in any relationships for that matter! She feels the same way, too. She's scared to death of acting like her mother.

"I always thougth I knew how I would die. I knew, at some point, I would finally lose the battle, and I would kill myself. Years have gone by, and life has continued to happen, and now I know that is not how I will die. I still have depression, and it is never easy, but know that suicide is not inevitable."
I liked this secret very much. My mother and sister have depression, and I have a mental illness as well. I know the pain. You're right, it's never easy, but it's always much more worth it to keep living. I'm so glad that you've come to realize that it's not the only option. And that you shouldn't have to take that option. I'm glad for you.

"...And I'm still WAITING... but I don't know for what."
Me too. I feel like life keeps going, but I'm left behind! I feel like I'm waiting for something that isn't going to come... or at least, I'm not sure if it's going to come.

"She's my soulmate." BACK "But it can never work. Neither of us could cope with the stigma of being in a lesbian relationship. We broke up after 2 years together."
I loved this secret. I'm a firm believer in 'no stigma.' I hope things work out for you. I know it's cliche, but love will pull through. Especially that strong of love.

"I hid some secrets from him because I can't let him know some things about me. I know that he'd be accepting of them and still love me for me, but for some reason, I just can't tell him some things."
I feel that way about my mom. I can't tell her everything, though I know she'd still love me.

"I've watched this show since I was 5. My mom used to tape it for me when I was in school. It always made me feel special."
This was too cute. My mom would've done the same for me, if I had asked.

I've gotten three more today!

Quote: "Be the change you want to see in the world -- Mahatma Gandhi"
"This would be sooooo much easier if I thought it might work."

I agree, though I do try to live this way. It just seems that one person can't make much of a change! But I just try to remember, Gandhi made a big change and he was just one person.

"my modern art prof gave me an "A" in his class. He didn't ask me to sleep with him But I would have if he'd asked."

I've never been in a situation like that. I wonder if you regret not doing that. I'm not sure I would, I'd be too afraid of the consequences. Though, definately, I wouldn't know unless I came up to the situation!

"I want to know what if feels like to be shot!"

I opened this and I said "This is too hardcore for words!" I showed my little brother and he said it was awesome. We salute you sender! For being awesome and hardcore!

I've gotten four so far.  Here they are:

"I know I'm fat, I'm just to lazy to do anything about it.

I am, too. I feel the pain. I think it's because I like being chubby that I don't do anything about it. I find that keeping yourself busy motivates you to do stuff about it. Maybe it's just me, and maybe it's just moving around. I dunno! But definately, big girls are beautiful.

"I made it all up and I still didn't get what I wanted."

I used to lie all the time, even if it was just to get people to like me. When I started High School, I realized that even if I did lie, some people still wouldn't like me. And I'd get tangled up in my lies. So I just stopped. A lot of people respect me for being so honest with others and myself, now.

"I love my big BUST."

=D Me too! People always say to me: Can I have some of your boobs? I say, "Nope! I love them just the way they are!"  This put me in a much better mood when I saw this. I had just gotten home from work, after a crazy shift and a depressing Valentine's day, so thank you!

"This is the only accurate discription of how I felt toward him. It's all I have left. I want to let it go. I have to let it go."
BACK: *It is unbelievably hard for me to let this go. If you only understand 1/2 the difficulty, I'm still grateful"
The polaroid taped to the card says: "LOVE YOU WITH ALL MY HEART FOREVER" in scrabble letters.

This one meant a lot to me. I just find it so funny that you sent this to me, sender. I've had a lot of trouble letting someone go, too. It's come out in odd ways, as well. [I think] I finally got over him... but I'm not sure. Thank you for sending it me, I'll keep it always as a reminder to be strong in that subject, as well as a symbol of your strength for sending that to me. Especially since that polaroid meant something to you.

Thanks for sharing, everyone that sent to me! It makes my day when I get mail.

I got squares from 4 people, I just forgot to take pictures of them. I don't remember who sent what, so claim them, please! Sorry I'm so forgetful! =)

I know Starpiste sent this one. =) I just can't remember the rest.

They're all really pretty and will work very well with my blanket. So thanks!

Okay, because I'm a very forgetful beast, I can't remember who sent me what, except for two. My dog... ruined an envelope and I threw away the other.

Could someone tell me what you sent me, because they're all beautiful and I'd love to thank you for it.

I can't remember who sent me this one. But I love the color and the pattern is cool.

ChibiElphie sent me this one. It's a Supernova! It doesn't lay flat unless I set it on a table, so I think it's funny =) It's perfect for my blanket. Don't mind my foot...

DisneyFan sent me this one, it's Waldo's Puzzle and it's so cool!

And I want to say april_cocaine sent me this one, but I don't know. I love the color and I'm jealous of your cables skill. I can't do that. =)
