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!

Got my package today from cumber1137, and it's really full! It had a bunch of smaller pieces of paper, which is great for me, because I mostly do 4 by 6 stuff.

The whole lot on my kitchen table:

(I had to stack all the paper to get it all in one shot.) Wink

My favorite bits. 1) A sheet from Juxtapoz, a magazine I discovered like a month ago:

2) A page from a "Straight Talk for Teens" sorta sex-ed book:

3) Waitstaff tickets for (what I'm guessing is) a local diner:

Thanks, cumber1137!

I received from WYOKrista a few days ago, but am just getting to posting pictures. There was a lot of stuff. Cards, papers, stamped papers, playing cards and baseball cards, stickers, book pages.....um and a lot. I couldn't figure out how to organize these for the photos, so you see what you see.

On a side note, I have mentioned before that I am new to this whole paper thing. And I am a bit odd in the crafting world. I am a minimalist, I don't like to save things. But yesterday I was told that on my trip I am supposed to pick up brochures of fun places to visit in town for a friend who wants to take a trip. So I have been going around looking for brochures and now all I can think is "ohh that is cool I wonder if my partner would have liked that."

And I got a really great birthday card from a family friend, but there is no way I am giving that up to anybody!
