Here's the GREAT package I received from Saor.  This was my first official swap and I had a blast!

Okay, so I've got my photos loaded and ready to view.  I'm just including links to my Flickr so I can avoid using too much Craftster bandwidth.

A great shirt made up with covers from my favourite books.  A really smart idea, put on the shirt with an iron on transfer.

Some really cool stationary themed around reading.  My favourites were  the Marilyn's and the pin ups.  I LOVE vintage pin ups and have been a long time Marilyn fan.

Here's my newest addition to my jewelry collection.  She made me three beautiful sets of earrings and a necklace.  They were also themed around my favourite books.  In this photo you'll see "The Color Purple" earring and necklace set.  It's beautiful and a lovely reminder of the characters in the story.  The other set of earrings is based on the novel "Foxfire."  Also, she included a gorgeous gold bookmark.

I was really excited to get my jewelry so I had a pair on right away.  Here is the pair inspired by "Cat's Eye."

I also got a really cute framed piece of embroidery.  The embroidery read "Reading is Sexy" and the frame was decoupaged with the word "reading" in different languages.  Really cool, but I forgot to take a picture before I posted.

Thanks Saor!  I had a lot of fun with this swap!

I have received from a most fabulous package indigokat- I'm a happy reader!

The tee says 'you meet the most interesting people at the library' and the purple fabric case says 'i'd rather be at the library'.  Indigokat knows how fond I am of the place.

And, not in the above pic because it was grabbed as soon as it was revealed when I was opening the package:

The kid loves it and I haven't got it off her yet, although I want her to wear it tomorrow to her story time at the library too.

Thank you Indigokat!

One word, No. She is as cute as is legally allowed. (Or maybe more!)

You think she's cute?  You should see her mom!
Actually, no.  Unfortunatley.  She's not normally that sweet either but if you look closely at her left hand in the second picture you'll notice my photo secrets.  The colour of the tee matches her eyes quite well too - I can't wait to show it off tonight at story time!

Remember when I said my post office hates me?  It so does. Finally got a package slip, this one marked "final notice," despite the fact there was never any first, second, or other notice.  Either way...all the bad PO karma is totally made up for by the coolness of my goodies. So much Pratchett-y, Feegle-y goodness:

A set of Feegle bookmarks
A set of Sam Vimes bookplates (see close-up)
A feegle statue (see close-up)
A fabulous feegle bag (see close-up)
And yummy, yummy Jaffa cakes (love how the color matches with all the feegles!)

Anyway, close-ups:

The bookplates:

Don't know if you can read the bottom like, it says "Warning: May Contain Nuts". It's a Discworld joke that, (if I recall correctly) due to quantum and electrons moving about, there's no way to guarantee that an electron from a molecule in a nut isn't, at any time, in anything out there, so...when you get down to it...everything may contain nuts and thus, should be properly labeled.

The feegle statue in it's new home:

The bag, with interchangeable sayings (I see me using this a bunch since I want everybody to see my kick ass bag and it will be used for grocery-shopping, library runs, etc):

I've got eight options (four two-sided swatches) with feegle quotes and reading quotes:

Nac Mac Feegle -- Wha Hae!
Big Jobs
There can only be one t'housand!!
They can tak' oour lives, but they cannae tak' oour trousers!
Reading is sexy
I'd rather be reading!!
Be different--Read a book

Thank you soooooooo much phantomssiren.  This stuff is fantabulous!!

Wisty McWist

I am de-stashing a *ridiculous* amount of stamping supplies (mostly Stampin' Up)...PM if you're interested in purchasing or swapping for them
