I know, I think I still have 2 partner yet to receive, I wish that they would hurry up and be delivered.  I am waiting for 3, I checked the mail on Saturday, and just bills...lame!  I think today is going to be the magic day!!!

I received from Koalascout! She sent me two handmade bookmarks and some extras!  Cheesy

Sorry for the picture overload  Wink

This bookmark is beautiful! I absolutely love it!!!

Close up of the back:

A fun dragon bookmark with a blue dragon on one side and a gold dragon on the other:

Super cute extra bookmarks:

And more extras! Some yummy tea that will be great since I'm getting a cold, a tea cozy (for a tea cup, I think?) and a cute little pin cushion that is great since I tend to take my projects all over the place and tend to use my jeans as a pin cushion when I don't want to bring all of them along  Smiley

Thanks Koalascout! I love everything!  Cheesy

I received some fun bookmarks from schnerby

I thought it might be interesting to use the stamps on the envelope on a bookmark and when I opened the envelope I found a bookmark made from some from Austrailia. I love the image on the other, it is very cute. The back has a paisley design. She also sent two handmade envelopes that are perfect for ATC's. Thank you.

I have received from all of my partners and am feeling like a very lucky girl!!!  They are all so perfect for me!!!

First the gnome bookmark from sushiluvzombie...how cute is he?!?! I just love him!  He is currently on display right over my desk! And the Pendegrast bookmark from zombiekilla that was previously posted...my all time favorite book character!!

Next up from amythest_star, I think these little teacups are so darn cute!!!  Wish I had her skills!   (sorry for the pic quality here...I can't seem to get it to rotate...grr)

And finally from Metal Vyxen, how cool are these?!?  Front & Back pics of pin up bookmark

and this really cool beaded one...in my FAV color too!

A big thank you to all of my partners...I really love all of them and can't wait to start my next book!  I think I will have to do a rotation or something!!!

Here's my bookmark from Disco Queen Highness. It's perfect and totally matches the way my house is decorated! The card is also very pretty! (Unfortunately, the USPS ripped the envelope and got black marks on one of the purple buttons...grrr.....) Thanks so much!

These are my bookmarks from pinkleo. I absolutely love the fall, so it is perfect! I've never had a bookmark like the shepherd's crook one before but I love it! She also made a second bookmark out of ribbon, which I just thought was so creative. Thanks for all your care and crafting!

I received my last two (well three  Wink) bookmarks today... all the way from Australia!

Thank you so much to Harvey and islandmum! I love them all, they are all so pretty!

First from Harvey, a super awesome metal bookmark that she banged herself! The leaf is wonderful. And she also sent a nice paper bookmark with a very cool tree picture.

And from islandmum, a gorgeous metal bookmark with pretty beads. The metal part has a very cool looking design on it.

Thank you so much ladies!  Cheesy

I am totally in love with that nesting doll bookmark!! The colors are really cheery and it's very-super-cute.  Cheesy

I also love the little gnome. He looks so darn grumpy... I want to feel bad for him, but he's just too cute!  Cheesy

I have received from three of my partners already. But I will post pictures of my other two partner's items as soon as I get back from my trip. Everything is back there and I'm 2 1/2 hours away. But I love them all.

I have received three amazing bookmarks!  I've been lax in posting pictures of the first two, which I received a couple days ago.  First is a wonderfully vintage-y decoupaged bookmark by Camelama:

She ran with my "cats" and "red & gold" themes.  (The coloring in the picture is a bit off, but the trim, as well as the entire back side, is a lovely pale gold.)  It's sturdy without being clunky, and it's absolutely beautiful.  Thank you, Camelama -- I love it!

On the same day, I received this fantastic felt bookmark from Stellou:

She incorporated one of my favorite motifs (Celtic knotwork) and color combos (red & black) into a masterpiece of embroidery and crochet!  (Again, the colors are a bit off here; the red is really much richer.)  I'm really impressed with how pretty, precise and professional it is.  Thank you, Stellou!

Then, today, I received a double-sided card from Ramona Q, who drew inspiration from a couple of reading subjects/genres I listed.  One of these was circus history, for which she created this collage of old ad images:

The other was graphic novels, which led her to this bit of brilliance:

As explained in her note:  "The paper...from a 1930's book on gardening...reminded me of...a comic book...So I went with that idea and made Iris into a human and the Iris borer into an evil villain."  What an awesome, creative idea! Thank you, Ramona Q -- it's great!
