And now.. my amazing package from.. mixymo!!

I was extremely hopeful that my parcel from mixy would get here today.. it was a crappy day for me.. and I was exstatic to find it waiting for me this afternoon!

It was surperbly wrapped in black crepe paper and maroon and yellow ribbon- but I massacred it before a camera was available!

The lot:

Here we have the darling Gryffindor lion from my wist!! Ahh!! Thankyou! I love this little guy! He needs a name though....

She also sent me some great bookmarks in the form of the D.A and Harry and Ginny (my fav. relationship!).. Your attempt at papercrafts turned out awesome!! Cheesy

An awesome Potions necklace!! (sorry about crappy pics!)

A Gryffindor scarf (that is almost 3 metres long!!):

I also was lucky enough to receive something Fleur/Beauxbatons- modelled on the paper Fleur writes her Triwizard Tournament entry on.. Pasties!

I think they are hilarious and adorable! One says Fleurs name, the other Beauxbatons! Now I just need to learn the spell that makes the pastie glue!

And last, but definately not least! A journal!

Gryffindor themed- this journal is so puffy and fluffy- and the inside is amazing- each page has spells along the bottom and then ingredients in the background. Every 2nd page is in vellum and has a black & white print on it with something HP related, like the Quidditch pitch, the Hogwarts school crest and the time turner.

I also got 3 pins that I cannot photograph well for the life of me! They have images of the 7th book (cover and hallows symbol) and the Beauxbatons school crest.

Thankyou so much mixymo! I absolutely LOVE this package! My brother was even impressed by the journal you made.. and he doesn't particularly like craft.. *hears everyone gasp*.. or, god save us, Harry Potter *double gasp?!* I don't know if I'll ever be able to use it though.. it's too good! Ahhh.. I love Harry swaps! Cheesy

Feast your eyes on my lovely tag from foufigirl!

Thankyou so much foufigirl! I am absolutely in love with this tag!

Foufigirl combined my love of a few different things- vingtage, fashion, birds and things that sparkle to come up with this! I adore the fabric buttony thing! The little extra tag on it says "You are abitious, and have strength to carry out your plans."

14  DINO-MITE! 18th birthday card in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by ViolinRomance on: August 11, 2007 05:06:16 AM
It was my fellow gymnastics coaches 18th birthday not long ago.. We never do anything overly expensive for one another.. for x-mas he got me a whole bunch of stickers and we both thought they were hilarious. They were really cute and had images of cartoon animals on them with cheesy captions.. so I incorporated his fav into a b'day card for him.. hope you like.. it's very much his style..

15  21st Birthday Cards; Vintage/Retro/Victoriana in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by ViolinRomance on: August 11, 2007 04:25:17 AM
I make heaps of cards.. heaps! But I never get around to taking pictures (hence I don't get around to posting pics!). So I've decided to be more proactive and take pics before I give them away.
I have a few 21st birthdays coming up, so these are some cards I've made so far (with some awesome ephemera I received from teamwang not long ago!)..

The first one has a chidlren's book image, buttons and you can't really see inthe pic, but I liked to finish cards with stamp ink just smudged along them edges.
The second one was a few different types of paper- Happy Birthday is stamped onto some homemade paper and the flowers in the centre are a bit raised and textured. There are some buttons and a little fairy charm thing (that I think used to be on an old ring I had).

Comments welcome! Cheesy

edited: to add a (hopefully) better pic

I also got an awesome angel package from gossamer_gull. Thankyou so much!! You would have had to have read my questionnaire to realise this- but gossamer_gull fulfilled so many of my wishes it's not funny!

I'll start with the super-cute unicorn tote. As you can see it's stuff full already- it has been a brilliant uni bag!

Another thing I am already using is the little pouch. It's so soft and pretty.. and I have a feeling gossamer_gull wove that ribbon into the yarn- it's so intricate! It also has the prettiest glass bead closure..

These lovely tree-branch earrings (so sorry about my crappy photography!) These are so lovely and I think very similar to a pair in my wist.. yay!

Another little bag with a cute unicorn applique and a green "fairy bauble" which is so my style (I love to collect beautiful things that really just exist to be beautiful!) and a lovely triangular yellow bottle with a pewter dragon on it- filled with "ground scale of ice dragon"

Some lovely paper and ephemera which will get some good use very soon Cheesy

And (I know..  more!) an ENTIRE ALPHABET OF ATC's! gossamer_gull made me a card for each letter of the alphabet in the theme of fairytale creature.. so a = angel, etc. They are so lovely! I tried to take close-ups of my fav's, but my camera hates me.. I love Pegasus though Cheesy

And last, but definately my most favourite thing.. a scarf! But it isn't just any old scarf.. not only do I have the feeling that gossamer_gull wove the beautiful ribbon into the yarn again, but throughout the scarf are small fairy treasures- leaves, beads and pretty little charms. They are gorgeous and it is so thoughtful (and I wish I had better pics!)..

Thanks so much gossamer_gull.. this is such a brilliant package. I am in love with everything.. you're the best! Cheesy

Well.. I think my package got lost in the post.. but now it's here and that's all that matters!

from defunctbuffalo.. who claimed me for stationary. I got some lovely notcards and writing paper..

I don't know that I'll be able to use it now that I've got it!! Especially the lovely peacock paper.. She made an effort to craft themes I like..
Thanks defunct! I'm so glad it turned up!

Hey guys..
here is my package from teamwang!
It's great!
So many different clippings- stamps.. vintage pictures, postcards, ephemera in general!.. it's great!
I haven't gotten through it all yet- I'm saving it for something fun to do on a boring day! Here is a group shot and some of my favourite things so far...

There is a postcard in this one that says "skinny people are cheaper to post".. so random.. it cracks me up! Cheesy

Thanks again teamwang!
You're the best!
