Inside the carton I discovered a treasure trove of art: three 4x4, a beautiful beaded doll in her very own pouch, a "welcome" sign, and a selection of teas and cookies to enjoy while appreciating Jeanette's very professional work.
One piece that touched me deeply was a 4x4 tribute to Selini Yazbeck. On one side of the 4x4, Jeanette briefly recounts the story of Selini's tragic experience on the Titanic, and then tells how Selini's life continued after surviving and arriving in the USA.
Thank you, Jeanette!

Lynne White and Toni Curtis received their cartons and posted about them on their blogs. Here are the look-and-see links.

The carton itself is covered in fabric and patterned with stenciled dots of various sizes in a combination of black, green, yellow, lilac, and white.
The necklace is made of two strands: one made of braided fabric strips in shades of blue, and the other string of blue beads, which is skillfully woven into the fibre braid.
The journal is also a combination of fabric and paper, with stitching around the edges. The journal fastens sign a small bead and loop. Elizabeth's combination of colors and materials lend her work both an interesting look and a lovely feel. Just right for a tactile person like me!
Thank you Elizabeth!

Thank you so much, Jan!
Jill posted a photo on her blog, too:
Everyone (except me) seems to be making birds at the moment, and this one from Pattie is simply beautiful. She also included a darling "muse" bracelet, a handmade journal, and a mandala, which I'm going to frame and hang on the wall.
Thank you very much, Pattie!
