Good stuffs so far.

I realize looking at these two packages that I made the envelopes in themes but not the contents.
Oh, well, so much for reading my own swap description!

She sent me a couple of her adorable snowmen ornaments!! I've been gushing over them!


This really cool leather and metal stamped bookmark!!! I love this and the little flower addition is cute! "Books are a uniquely portable magic - Stephen King"


Some really cute and pretty holiday cards and tags!!! I love to send out cards, so this is really appreciated!


And finally, this really pretty and well made happiness journal!!! I'm almost afraid to write in it, its so pretty! But I want to get into the habit of writing daily, so this is beautiful inspiration!

Oh wow, I somehow missed the gallery until I was coming over to add my amazing package received from tapestrymlp... And to be honest I'm sort of glad.  I always have super terrible swap anxiety, this time was just as bad as ever, particularly when it is so open ended and I'm not exactly certain what I'm supposed to be sending.  In the end I sort of ran out of time and just packaged up everything that was done.  Now I'm wishing I had been able to fit a bit more in.   Undecided  This package was so extensive, beautifully personalized, and artistic... Just - wow.

Drumroll, please... Check out the amazing package I received today...
Adorable envelope:


The whole set:


An ADORABLE Wire Fox Terrier portrait (I have a Wire Fox Terrier, so this is so perfect!!)


Beautiful prayer flag - I love the colors, the layering, the careful, beautiful hand stitching, and use of materials!!


The cutest hand-drawn stickers!


A delicate butterfly canvas:


The cutest card:


A bit of sparkly yarn:


And SOOO MUCH ephemera!  Stickers, details, slick portraits...  Wow.


Tapestrymlp... I'm honestly overwhelmed.  Thank you so much!!!

Ooh, those monster stickers are great! Smiley

I also got my package from Smmarrt yesterday:


Envelope, & things that didn't even fit in it.




Happy Doll!  Jointed paper dolls are kind of my new thing, but I gravitated to the super complex ones with lots of articulation & it's nice to have something simple & fun, too.  Smiley






mug cozy mini-books! Smiley  (My daughter got the sunglasses one, and is enjoying it.)

I can't believe I did not check out the gallery yet - WOW, some seriously happy mail!  I love seeing how everyone interprets this.  I realized after the fact that I wanted to add some more random ephemera this time and forgot.  I  almost forgot the note too for that matter.

I loved making that mini journal - there was a lot of fun painting, and smearing gel medium around.  It's a happiness journal - you can doodle and write, but it was inspired by something I heard on my usual morning news program when they were discussing happiness and how people define it.  They asked for audience input and one person emailed in that she advised keeping a journal and at the end of every day, writing down the top three things that made you happy that day - at the end of 3 weeks, you should see a pattern of what genuinely makes you happy consistently.  That really inspired me to make journals. 

One of my happy things is to make pretty things.
