Holy moly I just received from Karen...yeah it didn't get lost like we thought, and it's huge.  So much more than I ever expected.  I'm going to take pics but I have to figure out how to get it open first.  Will post either tonight or tomorrow.

Yeah, ya know, after I wrapped that up I did kind of wonder how it could be opened.  See, I misread the instructions and thought it said the envelope had to be 4" thick (not 3/4" thick).  So I just kept stuffing and stuffing.  When I realized the envelope wouldn't close I pulled some out and sent it out to my bonus swapper.  But I sure didn't want to have to put any of it away again - so off it went Cheesy (Heavily wrapped to insure it didn't come open on the way, I'll bet it didn't  Cheesy)

Everyone - thanks for all the good wishes.  Doctors have decided it's probalby adhesions from a previous surgery.  Apparently I better get used to feeling drugged - cuz it's better than being hunched over screaming  Grin  Better now - but I sure am mad that I missed all that crafting time!

I've been a slacker re: my package from plucky1_08 and still have no pictures.  BUT, I've had a chance to really go through stuff and it's great!  Everything so wonderfully different from what I have - I love that!

Some scrapbook paper different from anything I've seen here, some lovely handmade papers, maps, guidebooks (I LOVE Vermont BTW).  A variety of items from the St. Louise Blues hockey team (great name for a hockey team), including a catalog to order merchandise that has the cutest lego type hockey people on the front.  I can't wait for hockey inspiration, that one will be fun.  There was also a pile of great cutouts from mags - I always say I'm going to do that with mine and I never get around to it.  Between my two swap partners, now I don't have to  Grin

Ribbons, buttons, pom-poms, stickers, postcards (incl. the king and a great space walk one), paint chips, coupons, diecuts, stamps, fortunes (yippee, I never seem to be able to hang onto mine), Harry Potter cards and bottle caps that are NOT from the Diet Stewart's root beer that I drink.  Yippee, variety.

And, some great hot pink felt and little religious icons that I am pretty sure will end up in the Day of the Dead swap I will be working on soon.

THANKS plucky1_08 and thanks to our great organizer! 

Great swap.

It's not that I don't want to swap, it's that I often don't have time.  But feel free to ask (especially if it's one that's not too time consuming).

Sorry that your health news is half good half bad. But legally taking painkillers can't be all bad-think of how it will change your art vision!(Oops, very bad balkandina, you appear to be condoning drug use)
You got the gold mine of ephemera...I covet pompoms and fortunes and....everything!!

On to the goodies.  There are so many photos that I'll only post a few, I'll link the rest with descriptions.

Different papers, really like the Halloween cartoons one hehe.  More: http://osiris.avast-there.com/craftster/paperswap7/papers1.gif

The two pics of the woman are beautiful.

Lovely pages from a book on Fables.

^ aren't they cool?  They're on card (I presume the photographer studio mounted them when they were commissioned as it were) so I'm a little worried about getting them off the card to use, will have to investigate it.  I supposed I could always just scan em but it's not as much fun Smiley

Osiris--Here's what I do to get the photos of the mounts.  Take a craft knife and score around the photo.  I then just use my fingernail and pry a few layers of paper up with it and it usually come right up.  You may need to be extra careful as they do date back quite a ways.

Swapalicious?  I love it!

BTW, if anyone wants a magic fish please PM me.  I have a many more where these came from.  They're left over from my wedding...3 years ago.  I can't give these things away!
