omg polaritygirl is amazing!

we swapped 2 books (one picture book, one "novel") the ones i sent her were Bridge to Terabithia and Guess How Much I Love You

there's a covered matchbox (with the little bunny on it), there was a necklace inside it, a picture frame (also has the little bunny in the corner) with a picture of me with my son in it, a knit? little purse/pouch (very soft and great colors), and a scrapbook of our family with the little bunnies and pages/quotes from the book

my favorite is definitely the scrapbook, its so great, i only took a picture of 2 pages, but there are at least a dozen and all as awesome!

Those are awesome!  That little bunny is very cute (as is that little baby!) 

I wished that I would have chosen Bridge to Terebithia after I had already sent my book.  It's such a wonderful story, but I think it would be difficult to craft for.  (The necklace is inspired by that book, correct?)

Very nice stuff.

Zelda  I am so glad that you like everything and YES the pouch is knitted.  The necklace is inspired from the Bridge to Terabithia.   This was by far my most favorite swap ever!

I see no reason why the gunfire treason should ever be forgot

Wow polaritygirl, great package! I'm just curious though, how'd you get all those pictures of Zelda's family? (I love the photo frame with the rabbit. How thoughtful! and the scrapbook!)

Hey there!~

 I just asked Zelda to email me some digital images of the fam and I ordered prints from Yahoo photos.  Easy Peasy!

Yay! I'm glad you liked it! (and that it got there quickly like USPS promised, which gives me a tad more faith in them!) I'm still waiting for my package! yay!

Here are the goodies I received from apandalee.  She crafted from one of my Daughter's and mine favorites children's books - Just Plain Fancy by Patricia Polocco.  It is about a little Amish girl and a Peacock thus the peacock colors.  We love everything and look how cute the shawl is on Stacia.  She has been keeping a photo of herself and a friend in the peacock purse for safe keeping.  Thanks so much, you do lovely work!

If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side.

I like that peacock purse - I would totally use a purse like that!  Is it knitted?
