My Stuffed bottle!!

Yesterday was a rough day at work and very rainy and gloomy outside. When I got home I had the most excellent surprise waiting on me. It was my 2 litter bottle from my wonderful friend, Vicci. I was so excited and I couldn't believe how stuffed it was with goodies. I just had to sit and admire it for a while,,just a short while. Then I tore into it. I was totally amazed all the wonderful treasures that she had managed to cram into that bottle. I just sat for over an hour "oohing and ahhing" over all the wonderful goodies. She sent so many cool papers for collaging. And stickers, incense, buttons, lace, fibers, and just about any kind of embellishment you would need for collaging and making wonderful art. Here is a pic of the bottle and the basket that is full with all the great goodies she sent to me.

This is on my drying table in the art room, wonderful piece of furniture, and serves a great purpose. The basket with the goodies in it is pretty good size, so you can see how much she had in that bottle, pretty neat huh? I e-mailed her last night and told her it felt like I had been to see her and that she had sent me home with alot of souvenirs from her Art room, which makes it even more special to me. Thanks again Girlie!!
And her stuffed bottle is going into the mail today. I have crammed it full too and I hope she likes all the goodies in it as much as I love mine.
Its pretty early here and I have been up a good bit of the night acting out the pepto bismal commercial. I don't know if its a bug or something I have ingested, but I am not feeling so good. I am staying home today. It will be a great day to stay home as it is suppose to storm, and rain heavily all day. So, if I can feel better, I will try to do some art and stay inside.(except for post office run).
I mailed out the Halloween ATCs yesterday from my swap that I hosted. There were 7 of us in the swap and some excellent ATCs. I hope everyone will enjoy them. I will post pics of mine later this week-end.
Now I am going to go check on more of my blogger buds. Have a great Friday!!!

Hi, Beth -- Sorry to hear you have been under the weather with your tum. I think staying home is a great remedy, especially surrounded by lovely art!

Three cheers to Vicci for that great bottle! I can't begin to imagine how she got all that in there -- and through the mail! What a treat to open that one!

Well, hope you feel better. Can't wait for the Halloween swap cards to come!

So sorry you aren't feeling up to par. That Vicci, isn't she too much? She and I did the bottle swap as well which means she FILLED TWO complete bottles. Aren't we lucky indeed! You're right, it was like visiting her studio and getting to take things home!
I hope you feel better soon!

HOpe you are feeling better soon. Yes the weather over here has now turned cold, windy and with heavy rain, but afterall we have been lucky it is November next week. What fun you must have had with the bottle swap. It's such fun getting parcels and things isn't it. Check out my Halloween site the first story is up.

Hi Beth: Lucky you to get goodies from Vicci. She has got a room so full of treasures, for sure. Isn't it interesting how we work in such small surfaces, that the smallest items become treasures. It is so easy to find Large items, but a challenge to find the little bits. Love it. I want to do one of these bottle swaps some day. But I think I need to collect a little longer.
