Raqua Rawks!

I'm no longer a swap virgin! Heh. Of course, instead of doing stuff I SHOULD have been doing, I signed up for my first swap, the Aqua and Red Swap hosted by Sara and Serena. It was sooooo much fun! I had a few things already and added to. Holly received her package and I'm so glad she liked everything (yay), so I will post pics of what I sent her.

First off, some candy and a mushroom key fob made by yours truly with a little antique skeleton key attached:



Some vintage strawberry coasters and some bookplates for Holly's son, Andrew, wrapped up in some Martha bakery twine:


My favorite thing, a reversible vintage apron, and some Girl Land recipe cards designed by Lisa:

Vintage push button salt & pepper shakers and a Martha kitchen timer:



And................for my fellow Twi-Hard, some custom bookplates created with a free template Creature Comforts posted awhile back. I think I may make some for myself although I don't know if I want to defile the books (I'm a purist). :) I suggested affixing them with some double sided temporary poster tape. Or maybe even rubber cement? Dig the blood spatter. I think that was my fave part.



Well, I hope she likes everything. This has definitely been fun. I can't wait to do more swaps!!!!

Those bookplates kick ass! Twihard... loving that word and totally admitting to being one! I think I have to read Twilight again before the movie comes out.
