I got my fantabulous package from princessandthebead tonight. She personalized my stuff, incorporating some of my loves: Asian art, the American West and diagrams. Feast your eyes:

Handmade envelopes and template...

More paper (check out the translucent vellum stamp paper)...

Diagrams charts maps!...

Pages from Japanese books of decades past...

This was only a taste.. there was much more incredible paper, envelopes, stickers and ephemera (including a postcard from where she's from.. yee-haw! and a cool scooter-girl ad)
This was my first swap and I don't know if it could get much better than this. Thanks so much to my swappal and to happify for making it happen!

I just got mine from princessandthebead too. I love it!

Tiny envelopes, postcards, bits of paper, a fortune, and nifty scrapbooking type things:

Pages in various foreign languages:

A book that reminds me of vintage valentines, music sheets, and lots of stickers:

Lots of fabulous paper:

More awesome paper and evelopes made out of maganize pages (I'm so going to do this now)...

There were so many things in my envelope that I'm not sure what to do with it all.

These were my favorites:

I especially loved the funky patterns, anatomy drawings, butterflies and stamps.  There was even a sheet of paper that resembled a very thin sheet of wood.

Thank you so much, happify!

On my way out of the house this afternoon, late for class and a bit cranky, I tripped over all of my mail which had fallen to the ground as it was wedged between my two doors (my mailbox has been m.i.a.). I didn't bother to look at the standard-sized envelopes and instead grabbed the large envelope which I just knew contained my papery goodness. (: At the stoplight, I opened it up, and this is what I found! (pictures obviously taken later that night on my bedroom floor)


Vellum and others:

Handmade paper:

Swirls! These are my favorites:

Thank you Karensff for all the beautiful paper! I couldn't concentrate in class because I knew I had a stack of paper just waiting to be used sitting in my car. (; Now I just need to figure out what to do with it all...

Favorite moment of the year?  That commercial when m8888888 dropped her towel and jumped naked into the arms of Tony Danza.

Hi fadeawaydream,

I can't believe that it arrived so quickly. I'm glad you liked it.

Here is all that I got from my wonderful swap with hambox.  Ya'll are all going to want me stuff but you cannot have it!!  She asked what I liked and I told her that I am totally addicted to doing ATC's.  She totally listened to me and gave me so many things to use!!

Fisrt there were all these wonderful paper pieces.  Retro pieces, animal pics, doilies, robots and Japanese flash cards!  I love stuff in other languages!!

Next: wonderful paper!  retro soilders, Man from UNCLE game cards!!  (OMG...there was almost a fight over those.  One of the women at my office wanted them.).  More retro flash cards, photos and coffee cards.

Then there were the postcards!  Old post cards, new cards, foreign post cards...they are wonderful!  I also love making altered post cards!

There there were MORE postcards, stationary and cards!  Some were retro and some were foreign!  Then there were spanish bingo pieces and oragomi papers and FROG stuff!  I love frogs!  And there were wiggly eyes!  I somehow did not get the last picture here at work!  DRATS!  My daughter and I have already used some of the wiggly eyes for a bookmark swap!

I had so much fun with this swap and I loved everything that hambox squeezed into that envelope!

Hambox, where did you get that Milagro card? I'm absolutely obsessed with all things Milagro. Thanks.
