That poem is perfect, "crackster.org". I laughed. Thanks for starting my day off right.

I caught up some feedback last night, and will do some more when I get home from work tonight.

I have a split personality, because you guys crack me up.  AND The best day I ever had was TODAY!

Like everyone else,  I'm amazed at all the goodies in these envelopes. 

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.

In in for that too, I saw a swap discussion about a fill a flat rate box, but I think they do the medium or large size. I think the smaller size would be nice though, just to keep with the frugal-ness of the whole 44 cent idea.

Do they do the flat rate at $5 regardless of weight? Cuz that could get interesting...
 The USPS has a $4.95 option as either a small box, or an envelope. And the weight limit is 75 lbs. for any size package. So you could send a gold brick if you wanted to! Also, regular priority mail, not flat rate, starts at the same price.
   The times you would not want to use the flat rate are in the case of larger items that are light weight. You will get off cheaper. But you have to deal with that decision one package at a time.
   I'm only suggesting the cheapest option, to stay in the low-cost spirit.
I have recently sent and recieved the smallish padded envelopes
for about $2.25, but that was regular first class mail, and they were slightly larger than our 44cents items. Those are weighed and priced individually, because they fall in-between categories. So, it's hard to say $2.00 envie, when it could actually be $3.50. But, that is the next size up, before the flat-rate sizes, and would be a great size category for our purposes.

I received from raeraethejetplane yesterday!  I got some pretty cool stuff!

I think the envelope was pretty awesome:

A picture of everything (fabric scrap, buttons, lace, and some ribbon):

A close up of one of the best buttons:

Sorry for the fuzzy pictures!  I didn't get the mail until late last night, so the lighting wasn't very good.  I can't wait to use the fabric, it's actually quite long, it's folded in the picture.  Unfortunately, the envelope arrived with postage due (95 cents) but I think it's because of the thickness.  It felt like everything shifted to the middle, but that's okay!

First off all the stuff that has been received thus far has been great!  I am jealous of all the vintage pictures that have been received.

I would totally love to do a swap with the small flat rate boxes.  I am actually the one who started the discussion for the fill a box which was for a medium sized box.  Going smaller would be fabulous though too.  I had said I wasn't going to do anymore swaps but I don't know that I could resist.

I received a wonderful envelope from malmow last night.  We both sent each other handmade envelopes.  Great minds I tell ya! I love the one she sent me since it's made from a sheet of music!  

Here is everything all together.

The inchies she made me which I love!  My collection is really growing!

Here is another inchie that didn't make it in the first picture, some confetti, a wood chip L for Lindy and a brad with an L on it.

Thank you so much to all three of my partners.  You all outdid yourselves and I hope to see you around the other boards.

I received both my envelopes and they are lovely.

The first one is from MunLtStmpr-
The envelope (front and back):

The contents included bits of fabric, earrings, inchies, an ATC, ephemera, and stickie jewels.  My favorite things are the bindhi and the ATC.-

The second envelope is from noooitaremybirthday-
(I didn't get a picture of the envelope but it was a pretty purple stamped with silver fishes.)
The contents included a bookmark, bits of ephemera and fabric, inchies, shinky dink tags, fun mini tag art, and an ATC.  My favorite things are the inchies and the shrinky dink tags.-

As for the single layer of a silk hankie I sent them both, one can knit directly from it as you pull a strand out, or spin it up.http://knitty.com/ISSUEwinter05/FEATsilkhankies.html

Thanks for hosting lovesclutter, and thanks for swapping with me MunLtStmpr and noooitaremybirthday!

I was beginning to get a bit **gulp** nervous that our old-fashioned ways here in Vermont meant that I was going to wait until spring to see my envie arrive...! Then here it comes out of my mailbox today, thank goodness, so I can quit worrying.
The spread is thus:
With my favorites singled out for featuring here:  a gorgeous frame that is already on my fridge:
and a kitty cat bookmark that I keep staring at because it pleases me so!! 

I also have new colored feathers to have fun with, 2 crocheted hearts for my sweater, more bookmarks, because I always have more than one book going in several rooms (and now in 2 houses, even) and h'ween paperclips.
Thank you froggmomma!

I meant to separate the inchies, Lindy, but I didn't. Only the four inchies with borders are ones I made, the rest are backgrounds I made for you to make inchies.
I really thought I did more than four though...I'm going to have to take a look around my craft table.
Then the stamps are just thrown in because who doesn't love postage stamps?
