I received an amazing final package from aheartofglass!  Cheesy

First here is a group shot with a couple fun extras (Lavender Shea Butter soap and an traditional Irish St. Bridges Cross to hand over a door)....


She sent two beautiful glass pendant necklaces and matching earrings. aheartofglass made them with polka-dots, my favorite! Also, the colors are gorgeous.

I put on a necklace right away! Love it!


A cool magnet (already on the refrigerator!)


Finally, the most amazing plate with a lovely tree and dragonfly design. aheartofglass picked a tree and dragonflies because they are special for many reasons and she said that this is true in Celtic lore.

I just love the plate! aheartofglass made it food safe, but I already have it put on a display shelf in my living room, it is just so beautiful!

Thank you so much aheartofglass! I love everything you sent!!!!!!  Grin

Wow Koreena, that top/swimsuit cover up you made for Najaorama turned out beautiful!

I received a wonderful second package from aheartofglass!!!!
Here is the whole package....


She added to my stash, by sending me wool roving for needle felting and some awesome leather stamps (I can't wait to use these!), with a heavy duty handle, and extra scrap leather.


Then she sent me a "how to" crochet kit. This is wonderful because I have wanted to learn how to crochet for a long time!


Thank you sooooo much aheartofglass! Your second package was great! Cheesy

I received an amazing package from aheartofglass yesterday!
Here is the group shot....


Her favorites....
Craft supplies-natural stone beads and jewelery findings, we both make jewelry so these are prefect!
Scent-lavender-she sent lavender mineral bath and dead sea (I have actually been to the dead sea!) mineral soap-they both smell wonderful


Craft it...
Glass coaster with her favorite glass in it....the pictures don't do it justice (I will try to take another pic and post it), the colors are so beautiful in it. I want to use it as a display piece since it seems to pretty to be a coaster!
A Christmas tree ornament-we both love Christmas and sent each other ornaments. I always love getting new ornaments so this is great!


Hobbies...
Movies-She sent my the DVD of Bottle Shock, which I can't wait to watch (It was actually one from my netflix queue that I haven't watched yet)
Music-A Rodrigo y Gabriela CD---I love this CD! I had no idea aheartofglass was also a fan! It seems like we have a lot in common Cheesy
Horses-She sent a cute little stuffed bay horse key chain. Her own horse is a bay.


Closer to home...
Soap and lip balm form a local small business...I can't wait to use the lip balm and the soap smells wonderful.
Cards with water color paintings done by an artist friend of hers-these are beautiful!
Atomic marble that reminds her of graduate school-I had never heard of these, they are colored by gamma radiation, but are not radioactive (thankfully lol). Very cool.


Extras
Yummy chocolate, a sticker, a neat little beaded basket and Guatemalan worry dolls which I will have to try out!


Thank you soooooo much aheartofglass! I really loved everything you sent!!!! Grin

47  Needle felted bear in Felting: Completed Projects by RaraAvis on: April 05, 2012 09:00:50 AM
I realized the other day I never posted pics of my first ever attempt at needle felting. I started off making a sphere which I decided to turn into the body and then just went on from there adding things and trying different stuff out.



Thanks for looking!!!!!

I received an AMAZING Grin package from indigo_roses yesterday!!!!! But before I get to the pics I just want to say how wonderful it is to look through this gallery! The TM stuff is great. I love the altered owl tin (I have some friends who could use that, lol). The heart hoop is just beautiful and the comma hoop is hilarious!

Now onto the goods.....first here is the whole package

(She sent some beautiful fabric and paper as extras. Also, as extras chocolate (yummy!) and a prototype of a amigurumi bunny she is working on).

Here is a shot of all the amigurumi. I have wanted some for a long time (I don't crochet), so I was really excited to get so many. I love the ocean theme!

(Bonus the clam can come out of its shell!)

The octopus and lobster are super cute.


A stenciled Harry Potter themed shirt.


Finally, a beautiful shrug!!!!! I put it on as soon as I opened the box and did not want to take it off! I just love it! indigo_roses said it was the first time she has made crocheted clothing, which is incredible because the shrug turned out prefect!




Thank you so much indigo_roses! I LOVED everything you sent! Smiley Wink Cheesy Grin

49  Re: Make-a-Friend Round 8 :: Holiday Edition! :: The Gallery! in The Swap Gallery by RaraAvis on: February 16, 2012 11:09:28 AM
I know this swap seems like ages ago, but since my partner never got a chance to post pics of the items I sent her, I thought I would go ahead and post them.

The first item was the gift for her to open on her holiday. I made a necklace of an owl (one of her favorite animals) perched in a tree, with a full moon in the background.



The next items were gifts to give to friends/family. I made two sets of hand dipped beeswax candles and six little star beeswax floating candles. I also included a little beeswax ornament of a house.



Finally, I made her a de-stress kit. Since she likes Alice and Wonderland and is a coffee/tea drinker I decided to make her a set of mug rugs. I included a set of teacups and saucers and also some biscotti and tea!

Package 2, received from ironic

Here are the pics from my awesome package from ironic! I was so happy to see knitted items since I don't know how to knit and I love them!

To start off....something for me to stay organized, a cute little coin purse...


Something to give to a friend or family member....scarf and necktie (love the colors!)


The necktie is really cool, I have never seen anything like it. One end tucks into the other end and it has this cool diamond shape (bad description lol!). The photo really doesn't do it justice. I admit I think I am going to have to keep this one for myself! I just love it!


Finally, a gift for me to open on xmas....which I just had to open sooner! Grin
A cool headband and coffee cozie

and fingerless gloves in my favorite color!!!!


Thanks again ironic! I had a great time swapping with you! Cheesy
