I just finished a personal swap with Cackle and just received from her. Saying "she spoiled me!", is an understatement! The box was ENORMOUS! And the crafty goodness seemed to have no end! Pardon me for being pic heavy. But, there are just SOOO many things that need to be shown.
Steampunk "Aura Detector" with Decorative Wooden Box:
We've been attending many SP events lately and this is just perfect for me!. Love the box, too. I have a better pic of the Detector by itself:
The little handle on the top spin freely.
Botanical Drawing for Spellbook:
Simply stunning. The detail is wonderful! Will be an awesome addition to our spellbook.
"Household Dragon" with Decorative Box
Adorable polymer clay dragon. And the box is so detailed. She even decorated the inside. Very pretty. Daughter will want to claim the dragon, but it already has a home in my shelf next to these...
Potion Ingredient Bottles:
I really love the labels. She is so meticulous with details. The "Fire Ant Venom" made me chuckle. Here in Texas we can keep that jar amply supplied.
Hand-hammered Fine Silver Bracelet and Earring Set
I have a weakness for silver jewelry. These are beautiful. I will wear them with pride.
Felted Ornaments with Decorative Box
Lovely decorative baubles for my sis, mom and me. She even sent extra parts so my daughter can assemble her own.
Keys, Chain and other components
This is a lovely copper toned chain with various dangles. Though it may need a wee bit of shortening, mom and I really like it "as is".
One of two Gorgeous Sari Fabrics:
Beautiful black and gold fabric. There was also a pretty red one used as wrapping that can be glimpsed in the "Aura Detector" pic. I'm excited to find a use for these!
And, in case I missed something, here is a pic of everything together:
My pics just can't do it all the justice it deserve. I love everything. She was really generous and has excellent taste. So glad we did this swap. And, I hope she likes the few items I made her as much. THANKS SOOO SOOO MUCH, CACKLE!! You're an awesome swap partner!And, THANK YOU, MissingWillow, for introducing us!
