While my package to Racky seems to be taking it's dear sweet time getting to her OR coming back to me, I've received a fabulous package from her! I'm excited to get this gallery started!

All the contents of the envelope splayed out along with the wee tag she included with a note on the back:

And some of my favorite bits (I love everything, but there are enough pictures as it is! Cheesy)
Vintage photos:

Language papers:

A collection of creepy clowns which will absolutely make it into my sketchbook, as I have a serious clown phobia and my theme IS nightmare.

Creepy doll heads:

Fabulous stamped pages:

And finally, some of the tiny items in the bag that was in the first photo:

Thank you so much for all the lovely paper bits Racky, I just know I'll use it all for something. Cheesy

I hope my package makes its way to you while I'm away on vacation, it would be great to return to good news. Smiley And, I think it's sort of funny that a few of our items are very similar. Cheesy

The larger papers:


Nicoleburdsall is an awesome artist. I gave my little sister the eyeball picture though, she couldn't keep her eyes off of it. And now it is on her wall above her bed:)

Fabric pieces:


The smaller bits and pieces:

An AMAZING shrinky dink octopus (It's fuzzy!):

Metal cut outs:


And last but not least an awesome role of film negatives:

My most favorite pieces together:

And my most favorite favorite of them all!:

The hands entrance me.

Thank you so much nicoleburdsall! You were an amazing partner.

DawnsTress sent me sooooooo much!  I swear to you...  I would still be taking pictures if I was photographing everything individually.  Grin  Without futher interruption... Grin

Huge pile of papers!  I hope you can see most of them.  Some of them are marbled with food coloring and barbasol  Wink and some of them are shiny metallic goodness that is actually a giant sticker!

Look at some of the awesome drawing goodness she sent me...  she drew these!  I'm so envious of her drawing talents!  And the two at the bottom are handmade paper.....  again...  me envious!

Some various awesome stamped pieces.

In the interest of saving a little space I'll use thumbnails from here. 

Papery and printed goodness.

Various bits of ribbon, paper and some awesome green foil leaves.

Tags, a treble clef (I'm a music teacher), more metallic stickery goodness (that's the purpleish-bluish piece) and other cut out pieces.

Some of my FAVORITE bits from the envelope!  I love these!  Stars and butterflies!  ooohhh  my stars could be the lights in the night sky...  lights in the distance...  yay!  I really do like these!


This deserved a big picture!  I love these!  I believe she stamped the metal herself and aren't they just awesome!  And they have plaster on the back so if I put them in the book they won't get squished flat again.  I'm sure that everyone who presses metal already knows that but...  I didn't know.  So I'm amazing and its awesome.   Roll Eyes

I received from PureOath a while back, and never got around to posting pictures.

I received from Beckashell today.

Here's what I got from them - looks like both partners had a blast collecting things for my boys and girls theme:

From PureOath - an original poem, and LOTS of goodies - Lots of antique images!

From Beckashell: Lots of ribbons, stamped papers, doilies, and cards!

I'm already planning my next pages with all this WONDERFUL stuff! Thank you SO SO much!

Great stuff everyone!  This gallery is so much fun to look through!

I received a colossal envelope from Smmarrt filled to the brim with papery goodness.  My only opportunity to take photos was tonight and unfortunately it is dark, but hopefully you are able to get a feel for everything!

First up, the big papers -- background papers, music sheets, marbled papers, you name it:

Next up are some really, really fun pages of images that I can't wait to start working with:

Then we have more fun papers -- a Japanese cooking magazine, Bingo cards, business envelopes, paper people, and more:

And another view of some more of the goodies -- including stamps, Scrabble tiles, polymer clay faces, etc.

And finally stamps!

Thank you so, so much Smmarrt!  This was a wonderful swap and I feel creatively rejuvenated.  Grin  I hope that you enjoy your package as much as I have enjoyed this one!

I received from Ffrogg526 today!  Wow what a great package (therefore this is fairly picture heavy!) I already have plans for quite a few of the pieces! My sketchbook topic is A Day in the Life so I wanted things that showcase daily life I have so much to chose from now!

First up: a map, dictionary pages, book pages, photos, ad cards, band fliers, the top of two Hillshire Farms dinner packets and two perfume ads (I want to incorporate multiple senses into the book, so these smells are great!).
I adore Can it text? Blog? Scroll? Wi-fi? Tweet? No. Its a book.

Postcards, business cards, brochure, zoo info and map, nice card from Ffrogg526
Love the old postcards!

Wood pieces, lottery tickets (sorry you didnt win Ffrogg526!), cool wings, feathers

Hand drawn borders, great stickers, band and event postcards

The group shot - notice newspapers, interesting papers on left side (they weren't captured in any of the other photos and I didnt realize it until just now...)

Thank you so much Ffrogg526! I am excited to use all of this!

I hope cindibee doesn't mind (did you get my message cindibee? Smiley )but I'm gonna go ahead post pics of what I sent to her since she rec'd a while ago...!
Her theme is Dirigibles and Submersibles- a fun challenge for sure!
First the art, I did an ATC size submarine with a fun quote:

Then I painted a watercolour sheet with handwritten words all over it that she can cut up and use for her sketchbook:

I sent a bunch of ephemera goodies for her to use, and we also included other extras in our packages to use for any other projects we wanted:

Submarines and blimps or airships are hard to come by as far as art materials but I found a whole bunch of cool old images and printed them out, and some old vintage pilots, etc. from an old 50's british magazine I had, so she can use them however she wants- I think I did about 15 sheets full!

Then more paper goodies!

Now I can't wait to see what I get! Heehee!

Received from PureOath a few days ago! I LOOOOOOOOOVE everything. I'll post pics in the gallery as soon as the battery on my camera charges. :-)

Glad you got it all! Also glad Tero let me pick through some of her extra stash for you and Poozel. She's not only is a great organizer, but she's just pretty great all around!

Ah your sweet Smiley Thank you
I wish I could have come up with a suprise package for each person. My paper stash is large to say the least and every list I read over I found myself saying.."Oh I could share that, Oh and that"


Well I have received from both of my partners ! Smiley I have pictures to share of puamelia wonderful package and hopefully will add alteredmommy's pictures tomorrow. Both of you spoiled me and I loved the goodies, thank you so much.

Puamelia's stash of paper goodness

The camera and light were not working with me but that counter is about 6' by 3' and it was FILLED. There are scrapbook papers in there, stacks of foreign language books, newspapers and fliers. All kinds of found paper goodness from Hawaii, drawings, stamps the list goes on and on. Smiley

I am so sorry for the blur but these papers are amazing. For sure one of my favorite things in the swap. Smiley

Check out the seaweed that she got and pressed for me. I LOVE this so so much. I think it will be framed rather than put in a journal. Smiley

Sweet little drawings by her and her children.
Thank you so much for all of the thought and effort you put into my package. I really do love it. I am so sorry it took so long for pictures. Smiley

Prepare for more awsomeness...I received from Amaryllisroze!

First of all some very beautifully stamped papers:

(are these handmade stamps?...they are beautiful!)

Letters, tickets, stamps and even some small coins. (Amaryllis, what kind of coins are they?)

The art saves is also perfect for my theme (revenge on consumer society, frugal living, back to nature-ish subject  Wink).

And more (also perfect for my theme!):

And lovely (background) papers:

Amaryllisroze, thank you so much for this fantastic package, the images and papers inspire me a lot, most of them I would never have found myself. I love everything!  Cheesy

I got so much awesome stuff! I really wish it wasn't the first week of school so I could just start working! Some of the pictures I had a hard time getting, but you have to understand that whole "first week of school" thing! I'm just too tired to try to take them again!

LOTS of cool street art!

Also, some REALLY awesome comic books.

And then some fun B&W pictures Lady Lovecraft took!

Sorry about the flash. These pictures just don't seem to give justice to her pictures! haha But I really am excited! I have a LOT of material for scary stories!! Thank you so much Lady Lovecraft!
