I have so much swap anxiety over mine...  Sad!!
It was my first try at something, so it has a lot of flaws..  Undecided....

Whatchu talkin' bout Willis?


So, I'm not sure why she was so paranoid, but I got an AWESOME OTT from Ms. Bobolink. She used two space stamps from her collection to make me this double sided microscope slide necklace

And she also send this wonderful card with her favorite space stamp on it to make up for the so called flawed necklace. This card is so pretty I'm going to look for a frame for it. The inside has a little tag that says, "Explore"

They are both beyond cool, and I think you did a great job on the necklace. The first time I made a slide necklace, I didn't even bother to learn to solder!
Thank you so much Jessica, I know you worked hard  Cheesy

I guess I am lucky that my partner is going on vacation because she had to send me my little item before she left!!

You are not going to believe it, but what she sent me was the result of her first try at bookbinding!!

Without further ado, I present my lovely OTT from rackycoo:


In my favorite color combo, red and black!  The cover is fabric in a lovely asian inspired print!  The closure is two buttons and velcro.  Please note the TINY bookmarker.  The letters spell out my initials!


Here is the journal open.  It is lined with paper and a little flower applique in the corner!!  Take a look at the card:  it is a gift in itself!! Rackycoo knows I love to make purses, so the little purse is a bonus!!

Thank you so much rackycoo for making my first OTT a memorable one!! I LOVE IT and I need it!!

Oh my stars, I LOVE the birdnest necklace. I have seen them on etsy and wanted one badly! That looks great! It looks wonderful on too.

Anyway, without further delay, Bobolink asked me to post pictures of the box I sent her. So, continuing with the birdie theme, hehehe...

And a closeup of detail

I like how it came out a lot. I did some post stalking and wist stalking...she said she loved this cherry blossom embroidered tote bag (its on craftster some place) in her wists and loves birds.
Oh, and I have no clue what kind of birds those are Jessica (basically made them up as I went), but you can think of them as bobolinks if you want Wink

I think I'm going to make some more boxes like this for my up and coming etsy shop???

Anywhoo, glad you love it Jess!

I'm back from the beach, and had such a lovely surprise waiting for me! Here's the wonderful purse mirror that alwaysinmyroom sent me:

This is it closed. It's made out of some fabric from vintage kimonos, and the tassel you see is a fastener from a kimono. I love the colors and patterns of the fabric!

Here it is opened, where you can see the mirror:

Isn't it beautiful? Thanks so much, alwaysinmyroom, it really is a tiny treasure with all its attention to detail, and I love it!  Smiley

Quote from: tiph_thompson
Homerof2 received my OTT but i think she didn't post yet because she didn't know what it was *laughing*.  I let her know that it's a drawstring pouch, but  I sent it flat (open/undrawn) because the bottom of it has card in it to keep a round shape, so it made sense to send it that way.

When my package from tiph_thompson first arrived, I thought, Wow, she sent me a wonderful sunflower hanging - it was much larger than 4x4, but, hey, who am I to complain.

Then I got this cryptic PM from her saying to 'pull the obvious thing to pull', to see what the item really was.  So, I went back to look at it again and realized that she must mean to pull what I thought was the hanger.  I pulled it, and this is what appeared:

As much as it's cute closed, I think I'm going to use it open and hang it in my kitchen during my fall season.

Thanks, Tiph, for this wonderful item!
