Oooh, Jennie, I'm slack-jawed with envy for your little theatre box. I can't believe the amazing charms that Cackle found. Where??? And the purple button is awe-inspiring.

And both of fabricfriend's boxes are great too. I'm still having trouble getting my head around the skull box top. The contrast of the skull, the flower and the psychedelic fabric is just brilliant!

i even closed the box and got some tweezers and kept stuffing stuff in!!!

I do that too! Tweezers let you place things really precisely so they fit as closely as possible. And if it doesn't quite fit, you can just lift it back out and try in another spot. Beads are good for filling in the little spaces between things, and if you get really obsessive Wink you can use seed beads to fill in the few tiny gaps that remain!

Once again I didn't realize that I'd forgotten to bookmark the Gallery, so I haven't been keeping up. What great stuff! Of course Monnie really should be assigned a separate gallery, as there's always as much stuff in one of her packages as in the entire rest of the swap! Grin (Monnie, I just love the directions your imagination goes.) And having been the recipient of some of M's soaps, I could practically smell that box right through the screen!

Impchild's woven wire necklace is very pretty. I've only seen that kind of work in books, so it's nice to see it used in "real life". The aventurine pendant (I think you're right about that, Smushi) is lovely, but I especially like the glass ring. It's almost like a holey stone.

And two fairy doors so far (and a fairy birdhouse, of course) - this should be a good year for the Good People!

Sad to see the breakage, though. I have to admit it was one of the first things that flashed through my mind when I first saw the swap theme: I couldn't help remembering all the broken candle glasses I've seen in people's swap postings! (One of these days I'm going to post a tute on "How To Package Breakables" Smiley ) But all the other glassware has come through safely, so let's just call that one a necessary sacrifice to the gods and assume there will be no more!

Now I'm glad I left four pages of gallery to look at all together; it was a lovely thing to do over my Beltane morning coffee! I hope my package gets to FullMoon soon. The waiting is always the hardest part of swapping! Sad

Blessed Beltane everyone!

I particularly like the ones where you have to look closely and think "Where's the matchbox?" (sword, monster, etc.)

Too bad about the box the dog ate - it was really beautiful. I also hope the earrings survived; they were my favourite part. And I especially love seeing how much was packed into curiousfae's Neil Gaimon box. As everyone will have noticed from the last swap, my thing is to pack as much into the box as is humanly possible, so it's nice to see someone else's exploding with goodies!

I love the fact that the books just keep getting smaller! Can we see a close-up of the blue one, Racky?

What's with those Muses anyway? When you can't think of what to do they never have anything to say then as soon as you've started on something they're all "Here's a good idea!" and "Why don't you do this instead?"  Angry

I finally got my idea yesterday (no thanks to the Muses!) and I'm off and running. I think I can even do it all out of the stash.

Hermione is very beautiful, and the new hat just sets off her natural elegance!

Boy, you said it! Eeek indeed. Shocked

Oh, Nooo! I'm even more in awe of your talent than before! That's utterly stunning. I love the coral pieces and the wings.

And I'm so thrilled with Smallhold's suitcases, not only because they're brilliant, but because they make me feel less self-conscious about the box I sent KillamCreative. (You'll see what I mean.)
