Here's everything I sent to my partner. I haven't heard if she liked these things or not, but I wanted to share with y'all what I sent out.

I made a her a messenger bag so that she could fill it up with books from the library. It has an outside pocket which you can't see because I used black fabric for it. Silly me!

Here's the inside- it's really huge.

More bag pics here: I got so excited about this one that I had to share already

I made some stencils for her to pin on the bag depending on her mood- wonder woman or "where the wild things are"

And I made one stencil into a pillow for reading time.

Same stencil, set of bookmarks.

And a second set of bookmarks.

And a book journal- she said she liked comic books.

Feedback makes me happy

I'm back from my road trip and catching up on the "new and improved" Craftster. I love all of the Library swaps. I will take pictures and post all of the fabulousness sent to me by LibraryLolita tomorrow.

I know my camera doesn't take the best pictures (it couldn't be the photographer Wink) but I really wanted to show some of the coolness Library Lolita sent me

This is the super big Quiet suncatcher

A great altered book clutch

An "original by Brenna" (you should check out her other paintings on Craftster-they're tres cool!)
here's the link to another of her paintings

An altered painted collaged cigar box with 2 Where the Wild Things Are domino necklaces

Another view of the box. She also gave me a ring and a cuff which are being worn!!
Thanks again, Brenna!

Ruby_Soho/Amanda got my package Friday, and her camera has the hiccups, so I'm posting pics of what I sent her Cheesy

First, three little boxes....all containing something different...one has bookmarks (forgot to snap a pic  Lips sealed),  one has different kinds of teas...and one has hair pins made from pages in library discards...

The boxes:

The hair pins:

I also made some journals for her to write about her books, or take note of things she'd like to read...

Next up, a bulletin board for keeping her due date tag handy, she's happily engaged so I added some love embellishment Wink

And last, a wristlet for keeping her library cards and keys close without having to fumble around with them Smiley

So, Amanda, I really hope you are pleased with your swap package, because I was SOOOOO happy with mine!

I got my package from psyche this week!! I love this stuff Cheesy

A very comfortable tee with books on it and one of the four bookmarks that were sent.

A book journal(WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE PINK!!!) and some more bookmarks.

A book tote that makes me feel really incompetent in my own crafting power.

psyche also sent me some Canadian candy which I promptly ate. Oh how I <3 non-American candy. . .
