I just send away my box for the By the seaside swap this morning. I finished it in the last two days and I really hope my swap partner will love it. I can't show you images yet of what I send or it will take the surprise for my swap partner of course, but I can perhaps tell a little about it. I was inspired by the horrible oil leak in the Gulf and made an ATC "Protect our Oceans" and a journal/photobook with matching tag. I used my own watercolors for it, so there is no other like that in the world :) Anybody who knows me, knows I just love the sea and everything nautical and seeing the images coming from the Gulf just breaks my heart.
I added some vintage goodies in the box as well. No chocolates I am afraid as it is so terribly hot here! I send my brother a box for his birthday 4 weeks ago and he wrote me some of the (eatable) goodies had gone spoiled as also in the Netherlands they are in a heatwave. Anyway, I will show some pictures as soon as my partner has received her box. It's my first ever swap and I am sure I still got to learn a lot, but I hope she will like it!
