I got home dirty, hot and worn out yesterday from an all day goat show,  I not only showed goats but I worked the show too - doing the paperwork and wayyyyy too much running aroucnd - what was I thinking  Huh

But what did I see when I finally made it home but a package - and oh what a package - perked me up for sure. My partner bijouxpuck and her son outdid themselves - such a wonderful package

first up a group shot - they made the most wonderful journal with a goat on the front that her son drew - he's only 7 guys! look at the artwork! It's so nice!!! love it and I needed one that size - it's perfect!

Then the pouch - it's to die for!! so nice I love it. Love the color Love the detail!

The necklace and bracelet are wonderful you have to see them in person to see how amazing they are! photo's do not show how wonderfully made they are. there are small green stones crochet in they are so pretty. I'm in awe for sure. I love crochet and do stiches but patterns are beyond me  Tongue

The cape is equally nice, little amethnyst stones are also crochet into the button holding the cape togeather. Amethnyst is my all time fav!

and now to show the necklace and bracelet and a bit of the bag hopefully better  Smiley

Gosh I just can't say enough - this is one wonderful package - what you sent me is above and beyond, thanks so much!!!!

I recieved my super-duper awesome package today from Minouette and I love it! She did a great job on everything! Here's what I got (there's kind of lots of pictures but I love everything so much I had to show it off with lots of pics):

A beautifully made "Planetary Travel Journal". The cover is made of a map (I  love the colors) and all the pages have gorgeous pictures of planets and outer space, and there's even some pull-out maps of the stars-Awesome!

A sample of the pages (there's all sorts of planet/earth/space pictures on each page):

One of the pull-out star maps:

A really cool mobile with polymer clay planets (it's hanging in my room in front of my Velvet Revolver poster)

She also sent me a bunch of magnets with lovely pictures on each of them, as well as a beautifully colored Geode from BC. Also, there's a beautiful handmade card with a really sweet letter explaining the package:

Close-up of the geode:

Thank you so much, minouette for all the great stuff!

Trifarina - thank you so much for hosting such a nice swap!
I agree. Thanks Trifarina...you did a most excellent job as organizer and this swap was so much fun!

Aw... thanks vampirategurrl08. I'm so glad you liked it.  Cheesy Much to my own surprise, after making the journal, I was kind of stumped for ideas... I think I'm used to thinking about earth science with the left not the right side of my brain. Wink

I received from JenDiggityDirt today, and she sent a fantastic package!  I have so many photos that I won't embed them, or it will take up a whole page! I'm a meteorologist, so there is an overall weather theme...

First, the decorated box:

Then a group shot:
From left to right, we have a set of handmade stationary, a decorated box, a magnetic picture frame with a hurricane quote and decorative magnets, a zippered felt raindrop pouch, a striped tote bag with rain-themed lining, a wooden initial (my name starts with N), a unakite beaded necklace, and a magnet made out of cholla cactus. Everything was wrapped up in pretty fabrics, including the sparkly umbrella fabric on the far right.

Now some close-ups!

Here's the cactus magnet, perfect for adorning my fridge: http://decapod.home.silentsong.net/epswap2.jpg

The unakite necklace, with history and description of unakite (I love green and gold!): http://decapod.home.silentsong.net/epswap3.jpg

The stationery set, which has sparkley 3d bits, so perfect for sending to my meteorologist friends!

This little decorated box is so neat, it gets several photos. The text is from the Waitresses "Go make the weather", and it has interactive flaps:
The cover: http://decapod.home.silentsong.net/epswap5.jpg
The first interior layer: http://decapod.home.silentsong.net/epswap6.jpg
The bottom layer: http://decapod.home.silentsong.net/epswap7.jpg

I love everything! Thanks so much, Jen!

I requested my partner to craft for my son since he's very interested in rock study at the moment.  Debra/goatgoddess was graciously willing to do so. Thank you so much, Debra!!!

She sent Christer rocks ... to add to his rock collection. Here are some rocks found in Colorado:

These ones are from Livingston, Montana:

And fossil found near her pond in Texas:

They're all nicely packed in a container.

Rock magnets ... they are now beautifying our refrigerator door, holding Christer's notes, etc.:

Rock bookmarks ... Christer uses them to mark a book that his dad is reading to him, and his current book:

And ... a "Have a gneiss day" stenciled shirt that he loves so much, that I have to wash it every night while he's asleep:

Once again, thank you so much, goatgoddess!  Each one of your gifts is very much appreciated and used by Christer.  Smiley
