WOW. I love the Edward Gorey diorama.

I just received my package from Starsix today, but I can't post pics.... but here's what I got:

- a set of notecards with sayings about reading on them. My fave is: " Never judge a book by it's movie" teehee
- two paper bookmarks with sayings on them
- two lovely beaded bookmarks. I don't really know how to describe them, but they're really pretty
- a beaded key chain
- a set of "this book belongs to" stickers, each one different, and each handmade
- and a beaded zipper pull that says "book geek". It's so a pro peau. ('scuse the spelling in french!)

It's awesome, and it's all stuff that I would never make myself (I do not have the patience for beading things.) which makes it even better. Thanks so much Starsix! Your package is on it's way.

It's so exciting to see/hear about what some people have received so far. I can't wait to see what everyone else will receive as part of this swap.

I'm glad you liked the stuff!


I don't have a more detailed pic of what I sent, but I tried to go a little bit Rock N Roll, so ChtzpahGrrl could blend in with her Middle School Students.  Smiley

I recieved my stuff today!! And I thought it was my birthday for a second, I was so excited.
Here it is!

She sent an awesome card with this on the front. You have no idea how much I LOVE IT when people draw meows not purring on my packages. I cant get over how cute that cat is, either.

Here you can see the card, the cat (again) and the beautiful ribbon bookmark. It's really big, which is perfect for the art books I'll be studying over this next semester.

And finally:

A GREAT BIG pink book bag!! This is the perfect size for lugging around the horrific amount of books and cds I always check out. It has a super big pocket there on the side, I hope you can see it. And the coolest part--its reversable!! I wish I had gotten a picture of that inside fabric because it is beautiful.
Thanks, RosebrideJaya!!!

I got my stuff from Stopmoshun:
a shirt
a wooden purse with paperback cover decoration
and a Weetzie Bat notebook.
I especially love the shirt, and I'll be posting pics of both the stuff I sent and the stuff I got soon.

Okay, Gink is AMAZING.  Everything she made me is either incredibly cool and funny or completely my style.  Or both. Smiley

First of all - because this is my favorite thing -
An ordinary book?


(Sorry, having problems rotating that picture.  But isn't it awesome!?)

And the rest of the goodies:  a gorgeous brown cord bag with an amazing green lining, a harry potter tote with blue flowered lining, and some super cool notecards with French comics on them!

Thank you Gink, I love everything!
