I got my package from psyche today!  I don't remember what all I told her, but I know it wasn't enough for her to have been this dead on with my tastes and interests for reading.  Seriously, the girl has some kind of psychic ability.

The two books I got are Daughter of Troy  and For the Time Being.
She also made me these book corners, instead of book marks, with cute papers.  So cute!

Awesome!  Thank you so much psyche!  I actually have read a book by Annie Dillard before and was astounded by her prose, so i'm sure I'll like this one too.  The Troy story also sounds intriguing and informative so this package is really perfect!

I love personal swaps, accessories, disguises, animals, riding my bike, pen pals, and the Lone Star State.

Here is the awesome book I got from theatregirl25.
I can't wait to start reading it!  Smiley

And here are my two lovely bookmarks.

Seeing the ones she made really makes me question my bookmark making abilities. These are so cute!

I recvied from Muria over the weekend (I was out of town)! 

Here is a pic of what she sent:

I cant wait to start reading the book!  The crocheted bookmark is wonderfully done and she sent me an extra item!  A paperback clutch covered with an aqua colored velvet-like fabric!  Very handy!  Thanks much, Muria!

Also, here is a closeup of the bookmark I made for Muria:

Glad you like it, Muria.  I fell in love with it so much, I was tempted to keep it for myself. <3

The blue crocheted bookmark looks sooo beautiful. And I love the green cross-stitch bookmark too. Is it cross-stitch or are my eyes not ok today? sorry.

Seeing all these cool bookmarks using textile techniques like weaving, crocheting, embroidery, etc. is really inspiring. I might just have to take up some more crafts. Seriously, I think crochet is one sexy craft. lol

Thanks for the warning, I reported to moderator.  Anyway, I am sorry that it has taken me so long to post pics, but finally here is the neat package that Linneybelle sent me.

Until Forever by JoHanna Lindsey.  My daughter has already read this one (in 2 days) and gone to the library to get more by this author.

next; God Game by Andrew Greeley.  I have never read anything quite like this before.  It took me awhile to get into it but I stuck with it and now I really like it. 

Now the lovely book marks;

This one says "Never forget, music is too important to leave to the professionals".  I love it.
This one is like a treasure map, I love it too. 

Thank you Linneybelle, it has been great fun.

I'm glad you liked everything mommabear1963. And I'm glad you sent pictures.  I just realized today that I'd forgotten to take pictures before I sent them.   

This has been a great swap!

Looking for postcards from anywhere to use for RSVP cards for my 8/2012 wedding.  Have 80/200.

I received from Innocentpeace143. She sent me two great books.

First, a beautiful edition of Geisha by Lisa Dalby(I love all things geisha)


Second, Daughter of Fire by Katherine Scherman, about Iceland. I have a fascination with cold icy places.

I told my partner I am always misplacing my bookmarks so she sent me one that has seeds to plant with it so I won't lose that Grin

Thank you Melissa - I hope you like what I sent. I am sorry it was a little late. And thanks for a great swap Twizted...

I'll post pictures later.

Seriously, I think crochet is one sexy craft. lol

Crochet is actually argued to be the origin of the word 'hooker', from when lace crocheters weren't paid enough to survive without turning a few tricks on the side.  This I learned from Debbie Stoller's book, so don't yell at me if it's incorrect.

I love personal swaps, accessories, disguises, animals, riding my bike, pen pals, and the Lone Star State.

Thanks for posting better pics of your bookmark StarFire!  My camera is very nice for things like pictures of people, famous landmarks...  not so good for detail shots (taking the pic from the usual focal range and cropping can only do so much).  Smiley

StarFire was the recipient of my first adventure with my hot melt rhinestone setter.  Smiley  The book cover (no books were harmed in the making of the book cover, btw.  It's a blank cover from a local surplus store) has her name and a small book design done in crystals on the front.  Smiley  I hope they stay on ok (not sure stretch velvet was the best fabric to work with for those, but it was a little late when the thought occured to me).   I'm glad you like everything!

I liked the bookmark I made, too, but I'm now seriously reconsidering the thread crochet sweater I was going to make myself.  Either I'm holding my crochet hook too tightly, or thread crochet is really hard on the hands. 


Where did all this fabric come from? I CAN'T have bought THAT much!

I received my books from bluesparkie and I love them!  Here's a shot of both (we had agreed to send one fiction and one craft/cook book)

I think you'll agree that the "Discover a Lovelier You" is top notch! Take a look at these!!!!

And this is a bit hard to decipher, but this is how I can match my makeup to whatever colored top I have! So, according to this little chart, I wear a yellow top, I wear yellow eyeshadow!

Love it!

She also sent two lovely bookmarks that immediately found homes in books upstairs!
