oh, I'm so happy that you like it, purplexime!
my first time doing a swap like this (I usually stick totally to knitting!)

AND....
(since I finally found the Gallery, LOL) --
here is the lovely envelope that purplexime sent to me!

(ugh -- my pics are crummy, so if my partner has better ones, please share!)
the envelope is adorable, and filled with cute pendant/charms and a darling flower pin!
Plus 2 rings!
Thank you so much!!  You are a great artist!

I am glad you got your package safely and you like it!  I had a lot of fun crafting for this swap - especially making those little cards, and it was easy because both my partners had likes that crossed over.

Indeed! And you certainly nailed my tastes and interests.

I  received a lovely Happy Mail from Onyxnox. She definitely spoiled me, as you will see:

It all arrived in a hand painted envelope covered with leaf shapes and  the Happy Mail design. Just pulling it out of the mailbox made me grin.

And there was all of this:



Two blingy Christmas ornaments, a silvery Christmas card and tag, a bundle of leaf and acorn stitch markers, a leather and felt needlebook with a metal tag that says "embrace imperfection," and EIGHT little note cards with envelopes.

OH, and this bookmark with leather leaves.



Onyxnox, you not only spoiled me, you also made me feel so special by highlighting some of my favorite themes (dogs, leaves/trees, and needlework).

Thank you!

Beautiful work Onyxnox.  Everything looks so beautiful.  I particularly like the needlebook.  It looks so cute.

YAY - I am glad you liked your package - partnering was great because both you and vkvhawk had some similar themes and themes that spoke to me - especially about the dogs - I love dogs and anything dog related, so crafting dog stuff is very therapeutic for me too!

kayrun and purplexime, love your envelopes! Cheesy Those must have been awesome to get in the mail.

I was chicken, so I put mine inside a larger envelope for mailing -- but hopefully
it was still happy mail once she opened the outer envelope  Tongue

and I'm simply AMAZED at this gallery!
so many neat envelopes and contents!! way to go, swappers!

Whooooa! Such awesome envelopes! The spectre specs patch is totally cool! Envious!

I'm finally getting a chance to sit at my computer and post pics... I received on Saturday, but my world is crazy ATM and i've only been on the computer for a few seconds for work stuff. Anyway, without further ado, my great envie from geekgirl1000100!


The whole lot is gorgeous and colorful, just the way I like things Smiley There's a set of gelli-printed tags that I can't wait to embellish, a lil envie full of ephemera to play with, a shimmery hand-colored notecard set, a flowery 4x6 art canvas, washi bookmarks, lovely clippies, a great ATC and a beautiful mini journal (that I also can't wait to embellish!)


Here's my favorite page in the journal. It's so full of beautiful textures and different papers and pages. It really is ONE OF A KIND! I love it.


And here's a closeup of the ATC. Fantastic.

Thank you soooo much, Geekgirl! What a great swap Smiley

I received from Sonjaboo today!

I love this homemade envelope.


A tiny altered notebook, butterfly, and playing cards.


Some lovely die cuts and a matchbook notebook.


And finally, the gorgeous altered tags. Sonjaboo, did you dye the ribbons yourself? What kind of fabric are they? I love them!


Thank you so much!
