RougeRaven, I did not dye them myself -- they are recycled sari ribbon that I acquired from Etsy! I save them for special occasions. Cheesy So glad you liked your Happy Mail!

I have received from both of my partners, but haven't had a chance to take my photos yet. That is my project tomorrow! But wait until you see all the happy goodness! Cheesy

I've done a few swaps in my time but I think Happy Mail is one of my favorites.  It's pretty low stress and yet produces an amazing gallery. I'm looking forward to the next round!

Onyxnox - I know, right?  I have carried the bag to work every day this week.  It's the perfect size to through in the misc junk I carry back and forth each day.
Ooooooh upping the game - fitting a sewn bag in those envelopes as well as those other goodies?!!!!

Those handmade dinosaur stickers by Jenleahlynn  are adorable.  What technique did you use?

I'm totally jealous of the little leather/felt needlebooks Onyxnox sent out.

Love your envelope kayrun.  Nice package.

Lovely art work purplexime.

Awesome owl post envelope Rougeraven. great package.

Glad you enjoyed your package noooitaremybirthday. That favorite page in the journal is actually my background/scratch paper I use to do messy paint work on.  And over time I realized it looked kind of cool so I started incorpating it into projects.

Sonjaboo - love the colors you used.  Esp on the envelope, butterfly and playing cards.  Is it ink?

I have received my Happy Mail from dftba.  It is so exciting to get so many beautiful handmade items.  They are so pretty and unique.
Her is a photo of the cute envelope.


And look at the contents !!  I love them all!!


A hand painted ribbon, a cute paper banner, a nice posted notes with a cute butterfly.  I am so surprise to see how she used puzzle pieces.  They are adorable.  And my favorite are the awesome butterflies. How did you do them dftba?  Do you have tutorial?  I love them!!
Thank you so much!!

I know - so many inspirational ideas!!!!


I received from both my partners, so this may be pick heavy!!!!

First, from vkvhawk




Gorgeous water coloured decoration on the envelope...



A sweet little bluebird doodle on the envelope too.



Really super cute tags - I already know who the cat one is going to also!



A wonderful embroidered denim piece - I love strawberries and tea so this perfect for me - mineminemine!



Look at these beautiful cards!  Lovely painting - and that otter just looks so cute and playful!

Thank you Vanessa - your mail was absolutely happy!

From zcrafter....




A wonderfully bright, and spring-like envelope - and the path to my heart is covered in paw prints...



Some cute paper pieces that I can use for crafting - love the zentangle butterfly - my fingers are rather itching to colour it.



Wonderful coloured zentangle leaves - and a close up of the oak leaf because you can see some beautiful words worked into the art that are emblematic of the oak tree!





Wonderful decorated pieces that I may use as bases for future 4x6 art - I may pair some of my eco printed leaf papers with this!

Finally some stickers that just make me laugh - and some of them are phrases that at least a couple of my coworkers say very frequently... I think I may have to sneak one of two onto their ID badges next time I am back at work - on the back of course, but it will give them a laugh too!

Thank you so much Patty - loved making for and receiving from you too!

Oh man, there's some good stuff in here! I love those 3-D butterflies! And the watercolor envelope, and the zentangles... so cool!

Thanks for posting a photo pioneer9! I finally have some myself, but yours are far better!
Here's the envelope, which I love:



And the contents!
I love the crow so much! The ATCs are awesome, the typewriter is a magnet that I will bring to work (I'm a writer), and the bookmark will be used immediately! Cheesy

But I especially love this chick -- how fun is she? She's my new mascot. It's me, when I lose about 50 pounds. Haha. Cheesy


Thank you so much pioneer9! This was a fun swap. Cheesy
