I would love to join this swap. Is it OK that I would be mailing from Australia? I cannot send a SAE to you for a return. I could send a surprise instead, to help pay for postage? I was thinking that bookmarks may not be too heavy to post...but if that is not OK I will be fine with not joining in.

Would love for you to join us! Whatever you feel is fair will be fine!

Australia! Wow.....always had dreams of photographing down under when I was a photo pro......

Pat, you would love the scenery here, especially around my area. We have some of the most beautiful country around here. It is a flat landscape except for the cores of volcanoes but there is rainforest and beach within easy drives of us. Plenty of wildlife too.

Thank you for letting me into the swap! Now I better put my thinking cap on. Will you PM me your address please?

Hint.....my bookmarks have an apple barn and a couple of cats......any guesses?

Lady Kestrel
08-11-2016, 10:11 PM
No guesses, but they sound nice. I've been playing around with different ideas and think I've finally found my theme.

Up up and away! Yankee's adorable bookmarks have arrived!

Lady Kestrel
08-25-2016, 02:36 PM
I've sent a personal message to Cgstamper and Susan. There's something I want to add to my bookmarks but don't have the right info. Please respond as soon as you can. Thanks!

Wow....what can that be?

Lady Kestrel
08-25-2016, 02:54 PM
It's personalization with a twist. :D

Hi Cynthia! I am back in Internetland for a week or so and just saw your post. I sent you a replay. I am looking forward to seeing everyone's beautiful creations :) but won't be home till the end of September. A friend is collecting my post for me though so swaps can be sent to me without fear of being lost or returned to you once they arrive :)

Renee
08-28-2016, 05:47 PM
The ideas I had for my bookmarks haven't gone nearly as well as I had dreamed. They are taking longer than I thought, So won't get in the mail anytime before Tuesday. �� I'm very frustrated, and apologize profusely.

Lady Kestrel
08-30-2016, 06:55 AM
Mine are finally finished and are going out today.

Edit: Pat, I sealed my padded envelope nice and tight and just realized I forgot to enclose the postage and address labels. :o I'll send them to you in a separate envelope.

Lady Kestrel
08-30-2016, 02:26 PM
Everything is on its way. You should have mine by Thursday, Pat.

Renee
08-31-2016, 07:41 AM
One of the items on today's "to-do" list is taking my bookmarks to the P.O.

Renee
08-31-2016, 07:29 PM
The P.O. says the envelope is scheduled to be delivered to SC on Saturday. I'm from MO, so will believe it when I see it! After all, it took nearly four weeks for my ATCs to get to IA. (WOW! Five acronyms in just two sentences!)

I'm excited.....hope you are too....such a fine group of art.....you all ROCK!

cgstamper

Sent my bookmarks on 8/22, have you gotten them yet?

CritterPortraits
09-01-2016, 10:58 AM
Oh yes! Sorry Cheryl....I picked them up on my way to town and put them in my purse not in the box with the others! I love them!

Cozy Mysteries are my favorite go to sleep books....by I do enjoy many different kinds during the day!

How about you artists? Which subject/themes are your favorites?

Lady Kestrel
09-01-2016, 04:58 PM
I just looked up the tracking number and mine should arrive tomorrow (9/2) instead of today. Sorry for the confusion, but I do tend to mix up my days.

Whatever book I'm reading I will cart around the house, including in the bed, until I finish it. I love mysteries, science, science fiction, fantasies, biographies, history (especially ancient), linguistics, plays, and books about the theater, to name just a few. Anything with words on it is fair game. ;)

CritterPortraits

Yippee....love the art from Lady K! Both your art and supplement card arrived today. Very nice work and a very cool "personalization".

Just one set to go!.....I think you will love them all!

Susanlhl
09-02-2016, 11:01 PM
That's all sounding wonderful :D

Lady Kestrel

Whoops forgot there is no mail today. Anyone reading away the holiday? What does your booklist looklike? I am planning on "The Perfect Horse" kind of day.

Elayne

I just finished "The last time we met" by Anita Shreve, one of fav authors and am reading "The fixer uppers" by Mary kay Andrews, she is a lighter read.

Lady Kestrel
09-05-2016, 07:12 PM
I've just started Jeffery Deaver's new Lincoln Rhyme mystery called The Steel Kiss. His novels are always page turners, so I resisted getting too far into it today since I decided to change my craft room around.

CritterPortraits
09-06-2016, 04:59 AM
Ouch....craft room organization vs good book......hmmmmmm

Renee
09-06-2016, 06:19 AM

Lady Kestrel

My bookmarks arrived today, and I'm loving the designs! Everyone did such a great job.

Critter,
I have several of those cat mysteries on my shelves but haven't read them yet. I think it's about time I did.

Cheryl,
I have a new Stephen King novel to read, so your bookmark will be perfect to use then.

Renee
09-12-2016, 02:02 PM
WOW!!! :clap: Amazing bookmarks arrived in my mailbox today! LOVE all of them!

I enjoyed reading the whole Cat Who series...29....but admit the first 1-15 are worth re-reading...and I often listen to them on Audible to relax.

Susanlhl
09-27-2016, 04:04 AM
Yes, it does seem a long time. I have had things take a month to arrive though so I am also staying hopeful.

Susanlhl
09-30-2016, 02:19 AM
Yay! Good news! My bookmarks arrived today! Thank you all so much for your beautiful and interesting work. I will use every one of my new bookmarks. Sorry I didn't sign mine for you all.
