Finally got my pics all sorted out. Balletfreak made me some fabulous items!
-Etched glass vase/cup the designs for one of my fave books "To Sail Beyond the Sunset". The etching shows a boat in front with a setting sun behind.
-Reading oriented drink coster (fits the etched glass cup perfectly). Shows a woman reading and says "Intelligent"
-Book mark with handmade beads of tiny books with my fave authors names on the books.
-An altered book with a hide-away compartment in the back.
-A book purse!!!

A close up of the bookmark with tiny, tiny bead. How adorable!

Interior of the book purse. I love, love, love it!!

Thank you so much Balletfreak!! You were a great swap partner!!

I think kmsmaveric must have gotten busy, so I'm going to go ahead and post some pics of what I sent her.

The tote bag with title of one of her favorites:

Shawl/throw type thingie, crocheted, folded in half.  Somehow I managed to figure out how to make it curved so it fits around the shoulders well.  Don't know how that happened, but was glad of it!LOL

Pillowcase with quote from The Great Gatsby:


and lastly, this is a shot of the inside of the notebook cover with a pocket for library receipts:

I am having the worst luck with photos today, but lets see if third time's the charm huh. Just in case, the pictures are also posted here http://rebeccavoy.livejournal.com/533.html.

Anyways, have a look at all the wonderful goodies aussie_patches sent me!

A book thong/mark - the pics don't do it justice, the beads are so shiny! they glitter!

A hand-painted bookmark - I'm thinking I'm gonna use it in my uni text books so that when I get overwhelmed I can look at it and imagine I was there

A framed picture - I LOVE LOVE LOVE this! I think I've shown everyone who comes in lol.

And last, but definately not least ... a great big library tote bag with a library girl on it. How cool is that? I'm taking it to work today to make all the librarians jealous ... mean? I don't think so Smiley

I LOVE the "I Read Banned Books" shirt! What a statement. I would wear it everywhere!

Leaving another day behind.

Arimethia: I am so into the idea of the bookmarks with due dates on them! What sort of covering did you use on them so that you could write on them (and erase!)  with a wet-erase marker?
