Hooray! I know it's a small swap this time, but I think this may be the first Yule swap I can remember that got everyone's packages delivered before the 21st.

My package from holistic knitter came today. Not quite jet-propelled like mine was to Wales, but still pretty good for international mail. Probably helped by the added volume of mail at Christmas.

Anyway, she made me three BOS pages on Yule-related plants: holly, mistletoe and ivy. There was also a very cheerful card, and a lovely little wood slice ornament, with a pentagram on one side and "YULE" on the other.




Thanks for this, Lynda. I haven't even had a chance to read through the pages yet, but it looks like great stuff, and I like your drawings!

Merry Yule, everyone!

I didn't even know there were star dotees! That's beautiful - a whole different dotee idea.

Thanks for organizing, Alittlemusthave. It's been fun, and I'm already looking forward to doing it again in the new year.

I really like the green and purple leather. It would make lovely little pouches, too. The purple inside would be a little surprise when you opened one up!

Those are great stamps. I actually intended to carve one to go with my pages too, but I was making 60 other Yule cards at the same time and just didn't have time for even a simple one. (Homemade cards is a long-standing thing in our household, and this year they were collages, which took even longer than usual.)

A little book that you can carry with you is a great thing. Myself, I'm too scattered for that - the book is never where I am - so instead I have a number of little notebooks (I mostly prefer the little orange Rhodia pads) scattered through various jackets, pockets and bags so that one is usually nearby when I need one. But I do have a little bound notebook that I keep on my bench at work for exactly the purpose Betsy described, and it's gradually filling up with recipes, spells, book titles, song titles, etc.

Yay! I can't believe that envelope got to you so soon. I can't send letters across Canada that fast!

I just kept applying beads until I decided I absolutely had to put her in the mail. I could have gone on for another day or two! Her face is painted in acrylic. It's actually very easy to paint faces in such a small scale, because you really only need a dot or a swipe to make an eye, a nose, a chin, etc.

I'd originally intended to make a dotee of Snegurochka, the Snow Maiden that accompanies Ded Morosh, the Russian Santa Claus. But somehow she wanted to be an icicle fairy instead. There was no point in arguing. Cheesy

Wow, what a stash! That's a lovely variation on the standard Tree of Life.

Looking forward to seeing people's BOS pages.

I sometimes wonder about colours of things I do in my basement work area. It seems like I have enough light, but sometimes I take things outside and am surprised at what can be seen that I hadn't noticed before!

But I agree that you ended up using exactly the right colours anyway, so in this case the dim lighting was a good thing.

I've loved the other prayer flags, and I especially like the idea of doing it as a group thing - making the same flag for several people. That way each of us gets more than one flag, but it isn't much more trouble to make more than one. And postage is usually letter-rate, so that helps.
