Yule Present Swap
The Swap Gallery

The festival of Yule marks the lowest point on the Wheel of the Year. The days have been growing shorter until the night has triumphed over daylight, winter weather is truly here now, and much of the plant and animal world has died or withdrawn from view. But we greet the Winter Solstice not with gloom and dread but with celebration! It is a time of parties, feasts, family gatherings, colourful lights and decorations, music and above all, the sharing of presents. As we exchange presents with family and friends, let's also share handmade gifts among our WWP family.

For this swap, send your partner a handmade, gift-wrapped present to be opened on Yule (December 21st). This is a substantial swap, so your package should contain at least one large item, or two medium items, a medium and two small items, or three or more small items. You may also include other items (made or purchased) for your partner's children or other family members if you like, but you should discuss it with your partner first.

Some information on the Sabbat: https://www.circlesanctuary.org/index.php/celebrating-the-seasons/winter-solstice

To participate, complete this questionnaire, and PM it to the organizer, Wulf. Participants must post in the swap thread at least once a week, and maintain regular communication with their partners. Sharing the package you've received with everyone else is an important part of swapping, please post photos in the Swap Gallery. If you won't be able to for some reason, be sure to let your partner know early so they can take photos before sending.

83  Re: Surpise Halloween ATC swap 2012 in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by Wulf on: October 16, 2012 11:27:47 AM
Alas, the end has come for me too, with my two remaining partners' cards arriving yesterday and today. Sad But that means I get to share them with you, which makes me happy.

I got two ATCs from each of them, which is a double-bonus! First, from ghilie:

A Manga-fairy-vampire with a fabulous handbag, and a great composition with spiders, a flower and a tiny 3-D portrait of a vampire. So there's kind of a theme there.

And continuing the theme with these two from fancybutch:

Both wonderfully textured and beautifully simple. I especially love the rich colour on the zombie one. And it turns out fancybutch and I are practically neighbours. Well, we live across the city from each other, but I was on her street only a few weeks ago, so that counts!

Thanks both of you for these great cards. I wish they would just keep coming, but all things must end. Cry

Here's what I got from the amazing  Gozer today. Did I mention it was amazing? And as if that wasn't enough, she included a set of her Movie Monster cards too. I'm in awe.

85  Re: WWP Round 38 Mabon Harvest Swap Gallery (Signups 8-12 to 8-20, SO 9-15) in The Swap Gallery by Wulf on: September 26, 2012 01:27:27 PM
Wow! So much great stuff! I love the colours on everything in this gallery - all my favourites!

I finally received from EmilyWilde yesterday. (I send four days late and my package gets there three days earlier. Hmmm...) I'd mentioned that I will be camping at our local Harvest Festival next weekend, so she sent me things that would be suitable for a makeshift outdoor altar.

First up, a sweet little box painted like a Gypsy vardo, and two little disks for placing offerings on. They're salt clay (is that right, Emily?), so they would be biodegradable if left outdoors. I love that.

Next, a slab of wood with a really striking Horned God design burned on it, and a tiny offering pail with Baba Yaga's name on it in Russian. Brilliant! But that's not all - Emily's woodburner was smoking up a storm...

The other side of the slab has Pan  and the Triple Goddess on it! And there's a second offering pot, this one with Thor's hammer, just to cover all the possibilities. The wood slab can be used as a portable offering table, or hung (or propped) up as an altarpiece. I love how practical it is. Cheesy

My favourite of all, though, is this wonderful knitted pouch. You've nailed my taste absolutely perfectly! I'm not sure what I'll put in it (it's the right size for Tarot cards) but it'll be well used. And with it, three little handmade leaf soaps (unscented - thank you!) that are almost too lovely to wash with, and a tiny bar of lemongrass soap from Powell's Books in Portland, just because Emily knows I love Powell's. That's so sweet!

And it was all topped off with this fantastic letterpress-printed card. Just beautiful. Thanks so much for all this, Emily! You've been a terrific swap partner!

First off, I love the Borg Queen! The beehive thing is just perfect.

And second, I finally opened my package from Jillybeans. Yes, it's true! And was it worth the wait? You bet it was! In fact, if I had any idea how fabulous it is, I wouldn't have been able to resist peeking. (Though I pretty much knew what kind of brilliance to expect.)

So without further ado... meet little Salvador Dali!

There's so much about this I love that I don't even know what to say. The baby bottle propped up on crutches, the butterfly on the crown, his wee moustache and pouty lips, the kimono pyjamas... all utterly perfect.

But wait! You can lift the picture of little Salvador to glimpse what's inside his head. Do you dare?

It's exactly what I would expect. (There's the flaming giraffe from Jillybeans' teaser!)

The back is great, too.

And he brought a friend over to play! Jillybeans' first attempt at a tin was unsuccessful  Huh so she took the lid off and turned it into a sort of shadowbox ATC. What a lil' cutie!

Thanks so much for these two, Jillybeans. I'm terribly sorry I had to make you wait so long, and all the more because I could already have been enjoying them for weeks now.

Rosie1981 is swamped with work and hasn't had time to post a photo of the flag I sent her, so I'll do so.

This wasn't one of the words on Rose's list - I just had the idea of incorporating something round into the middle of it, and it evolved into a dreamcatcher, which led to the text. It's a vintage linen handkerchief, cut down in size and dyed. The writing is done in puff paint.

Not quite a swap, just a unilaterally-sent package, but I just received some wonderful vintage French linens from the fabulous EdelC, bought last month on her now-annual European Camper Van Tour, and I just have to share them somewhere.

I've never even owned one handkerchief case before, and now I have three! It makes me feel all Jane Austen-y. Here's a detail of the embroidered farmer so you can see the geese in the baskets he's carrying!

The handkerchief cases might have been made by young girls, but the lace on this linen cloth is the work of someone who's been doing it for many years. Absolutely exquisite.

This little cut-work napkin is the sort of thing you see in stores today, machine-made in China. But this is the original thing. Look at the detail of the butterfly:

Thanks, Edel!  Kiss It was very sweet of you to think of me, and when you least expect it, something might just land in your mailbox in return!

I got my second flag today, from Rosie1981.

In addition to my list, I said "do whatever you like" and she did this beautifully minimal forest sketch in oil pastels, and embroidered the text on it. (Unfortunately the photo doesn't show how textural the embroidery is in real life.)

Thanks, Rose! I love Robert Frost, and I like how you only needed three words to suggest the entire poem.

Here's another ten flags...
