Have to buy something for the finishing touches for my last item and then I'm done!

Put my package out in the mail today but here's a little sneak preview for my partner.

I received from Rene24601 today!!

First- she stamped some cute bookplates for me. I love the image!

Then, she made this BEAUTIFUL pendant, based on my love of 'Harry Potter' and fantasy creatures. Seriously- this thing is SO pretty. I'm almost afraid to wear it though, so I think it might get hung on the bulletin board above my desk... that way I can see it all the time. Smiley

The books:

** Weight- This is one I specifically asked for and am really excited to read! It's from a series where different authors retell various myths.
** The Kitchen Boy- She sent this because I love reading history (specifically WWII). Little did she know that I went through a phase where I was OBSESSED with the last Russian Tsar and his family. This is right up my alley!
** Fantastic Beasts...- HP stuff is always a safe bet. Smiley
** Northanger Abbey...- While I've read the title novel, I have not read Sandition, which is also included in this volume.
** Two Princesses of Bamarre- I've read and enjoyed several of Levine's other books, so this one should be fun.

Oh- she also sent a great bookmark that says "I always channel my emotions into my work. That way I don't hurt anyone but myself." I didn't get a picture though, because it went immediately into the book I was starting. Smiley

Thank you so much, Dana! I love everything!

I received! I received! I'm so excited. I was leaving the house on Saturday afternoon and I saw the package on the doorstep. I got so excited but I couldn't open it then because I was running late. Eek! Longest night ever! So, when I finally got home at 11:20 p.m.,exhausted, I opened my package. Smiley Enjoy!

The spread (with soooo many extras - thanks PirateColey)

First up - a mug complete with tea

Next - blank book to keep a record of all the books I still need to read (endless) and some super cute bookmarks

And a really cute bag for books or whatever else (I'll probably use it as a purse this summer) I love the colors although they didn't come out very well in this picture. Also, the only thing I requested was a craft inspired by my favorite book - Jane Eyre. This necklace is that craft and I love it! Thanks PirateColey!!!!

And last but not least - the books sent - good job Smiley

This is a book PirateColey found and said she had a hard time giving it up. Well thank you for sending it cause it is totally awesome!!! Jane Eyre graphic novel!!!! eek!

Sporting my goodies Smiley

Thanks so much PirateColey! This was a great first swap experience. I love it all!

Ah! Curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal!

I will alter puzzle pieces for you if you alter some for me! Smiley

Wow, I think Rachel (A2JC4life) were sharing brain waves for this swap! I came back from my trip to Kentucky and Ohio to find a great package!

Here is everything together! Sorry it's a little blurry...

And the books. I am really excited about Bloodroot! I was actually looking at this book on Friday when I was in Kentucky!

And the crafted stuff and extra goodies! We both made book covers and sent book plate stamps, so I swear we must have been channeling each others thoughts. She also made me an elastic bookmark and a kit for putting notes in my books in a really cute decorated tin. She also sent me a stretchy bookcover.

Thanks so much Rachel!

I received my package today from IndieCraft. She did a great job on my package. She mad me a Nook cover. Very large undertaking for someone just learning to sew. I love the fabric. She made a couple of book marks. She got me fantastic books. Three that were on my wish list and she sent me one of her favorite authors. Yeah! I was so excited to see that she got me the book Dewey. It's about a cat that lives in the library. It is a true story in a small town near where I grew up. That'll be first on my reading list, when I get done with the Book Theif.

Thanks IndieCraft
