I came home yesterday to a huge surprise! I had a swap package in from the swap-bot web-site that I belong to. I was way early, and by far the best package I've gotten in a long time. Look at this! The swap was a "journal with a twist" swap. Meaning... you make a journal entry a day, for a month and with each entry, you send an "extra" to go along with it. Wow! Cathy certainly out-did herself!
I received a blanket, 5 teas, 3 mint hot chocolates, a pair of socks and a book. (all perfect for Michigan's -23 degrees!!) There was also a baggie of brads and bottle caps and paper clips, etc.., 2 sets of letter stickers, matching ribbon, some clear acrylic stamps, a mini scrap-book album, a chip-board album, note cards and envelopes, a wooden box to alter and in the box...was more! A necklace with a scrapbook charm, and bracelet to put your own pictures in, flowers, ink and more embellishments! What a wonderful package. I hope Cathy is treated as well by her partner!
I love got another soul journal page done. The prompt was all about texture and adding items that would make some texture, and then adhering it all down with gesso. I used some mesh, a paper flower, and chipboard letter, a foam star, button, lace, a napkin and also I stamped in the gesso as well. I enjoyed it.... but I think I should have used more items. But!! I kind of like how a little color still shows through on some of the items.
Have a wonderful day, ladies~!
