Ooh, Phizzychick! Love the little book, and the box would be wonderful enough even without the wonderful things in it!

I received from Wulf.  The candle holder broke in transit.  Sad

Oh, that's lousy! I almost never send glass through the mail, but I thought it would be safe wrapped up inside its little storage drawer. I should have realized that the little offering bowl (made of stone - duh!) would have banged up against it in transit.

Still, it got there super fast!

The Samhain booklet with the cat on the front is by our very own Icekibby.

I'm recharging some batteries now so I can take photos again. I have given up on loading them from my phone.

Hah! Then I beat you to it! Wink

I received a sweet little package from Badwolf yesterday.

The best part is this set of crocheted offering bowls. I received a couple of crocheted bowls in a previous swap and I love them dearly, so I was thrilled to see these. They're just the right size to use as apple cozies, too. The yarn is very natural and gritty-looking but is really very soft.

Then she made these two Zentangle-ish moon bookmarks, and a beautiful stone (carnelian, maybe?) set with silver (?) wire on a braided hemp cord. It has a great feel to it.

Then there were these great postcards. One of the vintage ones is of Snoqualmie Falls in Washington, which is actually a favourite spot of mine. The nude is an Andrew Wyeth painting that I don't think I've ever seen before. And just look at the tiny emergency sewing kit built in a vintage matchbook!

There were also two chocolate-dipped marshmallows, which I'm afraid didn't last long enough to be photographed Grin, and two brilliant pin-back buttons with photos of real buttons on them. I seem to have misplaced them already, though, so I couldn't include them in the photos. Do you happen to have pics of these beauties, Badwolf? They're too good not to share!

Thanks for all these! I love it when people I've never swapped with before are so good at guessing what I'll like!

Love the eye charm! It should be excellent as an evil-eye protector.

These are brilliant!

Another way to shape a thicker gauge of metal loop without special tools would be to use copper tubing. In smaller sizes (you'd probably want about 1/4" or so), it's soft enough to bend by hand, but will still hold its shape perfectly well once bent. If the plumbing department of your home supply store only has larger sizes of tubing, you should be able to find smaller diameters at an automotive parts store.

Adorable and creepy! How tiny is the lil' fella?

This is one of the greatest things I have seen in my entire life. Awe. Some.

You said it, Knicky! The best ever. Of course I was already in awe of you, Ludi (anyone who isn't just hasn't being paying attention!), this would certainly do it!

Great stuff! Seeing those tiny pumpkins reminds me that the very first things I planned to make were some little cloth pumpkins, and I just realized that I sent Monnie's package off today and I never did make those pumpkins! Angry Sorry, Monnie!

Sorry to hear things have gone awry, Holistic. Hope it smooths out very soon.

Finally got my package in the mail to Monnie today. Whew! It seems like I've been working on it every waking moment for weeks!

Sorry I've been out of touch for WA-A-AY too long. Oddly enough, it's mostly because I can't tear myself away from working on Monnie's project long enough to post! It's turning out even better than I'd imagined, and of course I just can stop adding one more perfect little thing, each of which takes forever to get right. Embarrassed

I may be a day late sending, if I can't get everything glued in place tonight. There may be a drying delay required, though, if I haven't planned properly.

And as self-punishment, I'm avoiding looking at the Gallery til I've sent, so I don't get to see all the other great stuff people have made. That'll serve me right!
