Ha! I'm here, and I RECEIVED! Woot, woot!!
Onyxnox is a spoiler....
She told me I could enjoy the extras early. So far I have devoured a bag of delicious ketchup chips (well the littlest helped a bit), and I opened this wonderful and amazing surprise:
The biggest "gift" I have received so far is a major case of swap anxiety! Those little beauties are EXTRAS, people!
The main event may just kill me! LOL!
11/24/15- opened another extra. The swap anxiety is rising.
12/1/15- I think this might have to be the last extra I open before the main event. Otherwise the swap anxiety may end me...
So I opened another extra and it's SO AWESOME!
Day 1: My first "official" gift of the swap was a gift for every member of my family! Each of these have a tag attached, describing their singular attributes. And Onyxnox must have done some major stalking coz it was very clear who each of these is for!
Day 2: Onyxnox is a pro with resin and I've always been kind of in awe of the fun things she produces with it, so I'm delighted to have some resin of my own now to play with!! She even included hardware!
Day 3: I am a voracious reader and Onyxnox found this on my pinterest, but made it so much prettier than I could have! I love, love, LOVE the colors and textures on this:
Day 4: Onyxnox continues to blow me away! She made me these absolutely stunning ornaments and I FREAKING LOVE
THEM! My tree is all blue, silver and gold, so they won't be going on it - BUT - I will be making them into a garland! They will get their very own well-deserved focus that way! I'll post a pic of it once it's hanging up!
Each one of them is just a smidge different from the others, but here's a closeup of one, so you can see more clearly how amazingly awesome they are!
Ok, as promised, a pic of the garland (I think I may end up redoing it, as I feel that the ornaments might be too close together...)
Day 4: Toys!!!! Actually, tools for playing with clay, and I'm reeeeeally looking forward to getting up to my elbows in clay with these little beauties...
Day 5: I gasped aloud when I saw these. Stunningly beautiful, the photo doesn't do them justice.
And on my tree, next to one of the hats she made me...
Day 6: Straight off my pinterest!! SOOOOO digging this arm candy!
Day 7: Gorgeous steampunk ornaments!!
And a closeup for detail:
Day 8: Beautiful and simple notecards WITH a handcarved stamp!! Loving the colors she chose!
Day 9: BLEW ME AWAY!
I kept turning this over and over in my hands, just taking in all of the AMAZING and stunning details! I know Onyxnox intended this for me to "Make Art", but honestly, it's so pretty that I will have to force myself to dirty up the inside! Thank you so much, I love this so much!
Yes, even the endpapers she added are gorgeous!
Day 11: Stunning, stunning steampunk compact! It has pretty little rhinestones embedded in the gorgeous texture, the colors are perfect....*swoon*
Day 12: A fabulous embossed metal mini art journal! Oh, how I love this!
Audania1, thank you for organizing this wonderful swap, and thanks to Onyxnox for being a dream partner!
