I love the glass box, the bag is gorgeous and the fairy 8 ball wand? How on earth did you think of it?!
I have to give credit to you, sazzra, for the initial concept of a fairy wand! You've been so great to me since I've joined Craftster (and really patient with my 1000+ questions) that you've become my self-appointed Fairy Godmother! (Self-appointed by me! ) In your infinite wisdom, you paired me with my perfect SP, rockmygypsysoul. JoAnn's profile and questionnaire completed the concept of a wand that could foretell the future. On certain days, don't we all wish for something to tell us whether getting out of bed is worth it?
Also, Arielthemermaid, you should get an award for supreme packaging. I always just shove stuff in the box.Simple paranoia on my part! I was afraid rockmygypsysoul would receive a Faery box filled with glass shards, teeny glass marbles, and lots of ribbon!
I am simply MAD about all the different necklaces, earrings, and the Fantasia ring made by everyone! And the tees are all fab! All the bags, aprons, plushies (Luv the Sookies and Godric), iron-ons, towels, pillowcases, and the glass box (Sigh! that's really, really fab!). There are waaay too many awesome things in this swap to list what I'm wisting! (Practically everything!)
Rockmygypsysoul--Now that I am at real computer I can post a proper reply to your wonderful post and PMs. (My Barbie-sized keyboard or the touch screen keyboard on my phone does not lend itself to real emailing. )
I am SO VERY EXCITED that you loved your package!! I'm still on Cloud 9 today! Since this was my 1st swap, I was beyond nervous! This has been a truly fantastic experience!
I must admit I asked your Wishing Wand when your package would be delivered. This was the answer (and one of the teaser pics):
It said next week! (It works! It works! My inner crafting demon is now doing its best impersonation of a mad scientist! )
Here are some additional pics of the Wishing Wand on its stand:

Directions for use:
When you have a day you don't have a question for it, ask it when I'll get Eric and when to buy a lottery ticket!
To be completely honest, I've just begun making jewelry. Your bracelet is the 1st real piece I've made. I know it turned out really heavy (sorry about that) but I couldn't seem to stop charming! I tried to make sure the bracelet wouldn't be uncomfortable for you to wear (with your Fibromyalgia) by distributing the weight evenly on both sides of the bracelet. Let me know if you experience any problems with it. (I don't mind critiques at all and I love learning new techniques.)
Here's a close up (without a label on the blood vial):
I went round and round about the label for the blood vial. I wanted it to be from Eric, but the Eric label didn't coordinate. So I went with the "V" label. I'm so glad you read my mind! A dear friend of mine who lives in Korea sent me the coffin (cough-in) charm for your bracelet.
I so loved your bookmark, I made one for myself. (Shrinky Dinking is my other new obsession!)
Your pic turned out much better.
And a few other pics of the "V" sample:
Sending you another long distance hug! Enjoy all of it! I'm stalking my postal lady tomorrow! Ariel
