Badwolf: I love the texture on those bookmarks! And those little bowls are darling.
Wulf: I was excited to see what you'd make, and wow! You do not disappoint! That shrine is WONDERFUL!
Phizzychick: Your altered books are always wonderful, and this is no exception! It's a wonderful palette.


OKAY -- I received a wonderful package from spazgirl1981 yesterday! And let me say, she really spoiled me! I'm still a baby pagan, and receiving WWP swaps is still a novel and wonderful thing to me. I don't have many pagan friends to share my excitement for the holiday with, so this swap was especially special to me. C:

Behold! The bevy of autumnal goodness!



She made twenty pages for my BOS. TWENTY! All perfectly sized for my half-pint binder. And beautifully painted Samhain pumpkin (only one side pictured, but it has a god and goddess symbol, a broom, and a bubbling cauldron. God and goddess candle holders, a rainbow of candles, and a clutch of tea lights, a teeny tiny blank book, perfect for a pocket companion, a glass bottle filled with sea salt, a wonderful cluster of crystals, cornucopia filled with fall leaves, and the prettiest candle snuffer! She was concerned it was too blingy, but it's PERFECT and I love it!!

All the small things were packed up in lovely little orange burlap bags and decorated in fall-colored butterfly clips.








Thank you so much for everything, spazgirl!! I'm so delighted by all the things you sent; thank you thank you thank you!!

I'm glad that everything arrived in one piece! (Though perhaps in a less timely manner than might've been.  Wink)  I was a little concerned for the pink frame. Cheesy I had so much fun painting the ladies!

Ach! That butterfly is too mischievous for its own good! Tongue I'm glad the case arrived unsullied, though. I've never shipped anything with glass in it before and was quite nervous. I do, however, apologize for the amount of superglue you'll have to navigate in order to open that thing back up. (!!)

Oh my goodness that narwhal is too precious!

The wolpertinger is great! And so fitting, given the crowd!  Wink I love it.

I! Had the pleasure today of receiving from the inimitably wonderful emilywilde! She said in her note that this was a difficult swap for her, but I think she hit it out of the park.

She calls this first lovely thing the nightmare moth. It has a bristle of teeth for a head and an eyeball on its tail (I LOVE teeth and eyeballs). The cocoon dangling over the top of the frame is purposefully reminiscent of a fang or tusk AND it glows in the dark (yes, I dashed immediately into the bathroom to perform Science, and it does indeed -- the moth's teeth also glow, which delights me to no end).

She chose to do a moth based on a story her mom told her. She lived in Guam for a while and the locals told them about a moth that could kill just by touch, and Emily thought about how that kind of fear could warp a person's perspective.



The second item just tickles me to no end. I mentioned liking things that are creepy/cute, and she made this adorable soft monster with a snaggletooth mouth for a face that wears a precious clay mask (which also glows!) based loosely on plague doctor masks.



Thank you so much, Emily! The thought and care you put into every aspect of this swap is immediately evident, and I adore everything you sent me.

thank goodness for crafting ... the only thing that's keeping me sane as I relax in the evenings!
package progressing nicely!

I'm sorry you're having such a rough week! :C Tooth stuff is the WORST, especially compounded with lots of other stressors. I hope things calm  down and even out for you soon!

On the upside, that's a very sharp hat.  Wink
