I recieved from phizzy today!  I always love the bright colors on phizzy's work, and I always thought it must be markers, or some such.  I know she also uses watercolor pencils.  But I have to say, to be able to hold such beauty in my own little hands and to gaze on such loveliness in person is wonderful  Wink


The flower in the middle is fabric!

All flattery aside, I really do like this page

I received a beautiful page today from queen of fools.  (My pics aren't the best, maybe queen of fools has some better ones she can post)

front  I just love the ethereal beauty of this young woman.  To me she seems so very full of hope and life.  I really love the crowning of her.  Is it for her future life, or her past accomplishments, or in honor of how she is living her life right now?

Back  I really love the text on this page.  It is a dictionary page that has words like happiness and cuddle on it.  The words are so tiny though that there's no way you'll get a good look at them.

I love the colors and the girl is so beautiful.  This is a card that I really wish I could just pass around so every one could see how truly lovely it is for themselves.

queen also sent this really cool postcard

Thanks for the beautiful page queen!

Ahhh, you got a great package! 

I got a great package today too!  sevsonlygirl sent me some really cool stuff

a "slytherin" shirt 

Awesome Weasley's Wizard Wheezes hoodie.  This is all hand painted, and it is very soft and supple still.  When I paint on fabric, sometimes there is a tendancy towards stiffness, but this feels great.

This bracelet is really cool.  I spent a lot of time trying to find a slytherin-ish charm for something that I sent sev.  I never found any, so I made her a different item.  Sevsonlygirl found me a whole bracelet full of HP goodness


Sev also sent me a sweet little gnome that was riding a hoptoad around the Burrow.  He's gonna live with me now.  (ignore the half-dead plant! Roll Eyes )

The gnome is also showing off the wonderful handcrafted lip balm.  This stuff smells fantastic.
Sevsonlygirl also included some candy, (already devoured by children) and a sticker book and a flip book. These are so fun

Thanks for such a fun swap Sevsonlygirl!

Here's my page from Minouette.  It's called Seth in Space.  I love the contrast of the blacknes and the shiny

woah!  I can tell I have been MIA!  there are some fabulous pages here!

I recieved a great page from babbetto.  I think it actually came on Saturday, but like I said, I have been gone for a while.

My page is fantastic.  It has a daddy bird and a baby bird.  Daddy bird, (named E) is learning to walk (for the second time) at the same time as baby bird,( named little R ) Aren't they sweet together?  soon they'll both be running and flying  all over the place  Cheesy

Yeah, okay I made the story up, but that is what it made me think of, and I love it.

Here is the back

Thanks babs, don't ever stop drawing BEBs!  (Big Eye Birds)

Here is the lovely journal I recieved from craftybernie.  I kid you not ladies, I cried when I looked at this.  I love scrapbooking and this is a book that I will use. 

The box came wrapped in a pretty handmade manilla box, which had a sheer, shimmery brown ribbon tied around it.

inside of the box, was my album, again wrapped, this time in a handmade paper.  This image shows off the beautiful botanicals in the paper. 

the whole front cover, notice the sewn in bookmark say Journey

this one shows the color better and also shows off the pretty yoyo flower

an inside shot to show off these really great twist ties (!) with words written on them.  too cool, never seen anything like them before!

some of the white pages have words in the corners, I love this touch

there are also pages made from the prettiest scrapbook paper, and some of the  pages have ribbons on them

on the inside back cover is a pocket!  and notice the sewn in bookmark says Journal - Because it is two sided !  Ah, I love it!

Craftybernie also sent me a calendar from her home

I really love my journal album  Grin  But now I'm worried about what I sent you craftybernie, it isn't nearly as cool as what I recieved

I recieved my page from Racky!  I have wanted to own a piece of  original "Rackyart" for a long time  Cheesy Now I own not one,but TWO!  (check out the Tip-in gallery to see the wonderful page she sent along with this one)

On the front are all of these little watch gears, and some cool gold wings.  Are those the German foil kinda thing?

More clocks on the back.  I really like clocks/time as images and themes

I got a gorgeous page from Racky!

I love the picture she used on the front.  Reminds me of Sunday School when we made "rhythm drums" You could here us little kids pounding them through the whole building.


I like the little cards too

What a great page!  Thanks Racky  Cheesy
