You've got swap anxiety??? I've got to get more stuff in my package, pronto!   Cheesy

I'm the one who received!!!!  However, I left town EARLY the morning after I posted, and, as a lame-o, I didn't put the pictures up!!

So, to start with, the box made me laugh.

And I got candy!!!

Chocolate wands (chocolate covered pretzels) are absolutely one of my favorite snacks!!!!  They are gone already, unfortunately.

And a giant squid.

And tea and tarot cards.

Madame Pomfrey sent some fantastic green tea soaps (I LOVE green tea), that just smell too amazing to be used.  Although, of course, they will be!!

Two ornament-ish objects: a Hedwig magnet and a castle ornament with a photo of the trio!

Dumbledore sent me a letter!!!  Nyah-nyah!!!!!

Almost as cool was Mrs. Weasley telling my I looked skinnier every time she saw me.  I knew I liked her!

I got a ton of resin jewelry & charms.

The picture isn't really big enough, but there are all kinds of really beautiful little things on there!

And me modeling the earrings from Luna (which I have worn to work... more than once...)

I also got a gorgeous set of runes and a rune bag.  I'm so going to carry the bag on its own!!!!

That rune means "courage," which is something I can always have more of!

And, finally.... I can't believe this was finished in a month!!!!
superhooker sent us a GORGEOUS Ravenclaw afghan.  The colors are just beautiful & it looks great on my couch, and it's in a star pattern!!!!  I am SO impressed!

I can't believe how lucky I've been in this swap!!! I've got to get crafting again!!!

*sneaks in*
I know it's not my swap, but I'm excited about this one!  Sooo here is what knightswhosayknit received....

Lumberjack bottlecap earrings

The front had the lumberjack & his special lady friend, and the back has the mounty (mountie? sp?) choir!  Neither of the pics came out well, but the one shown is of the back (in case you can't tell)

A Life of Brian Rosin Box... it's really too big for rosin, but I couldn't find a smaller box, but I left the inside blank in case she could use it, and so the decoupage medium wouldn't get into her rosin.

It has the improperly conjugated "Romans they go home" all over it, even though I know that's not the repeated phrase...

A Holy Grail tote, with a grail shaped beacon, er, pocket.

With Sir Robin peeking out of one of the inside pockets... I think it's one above the knitting needle holsters, but I don't really remember.

The inside has angry God!  Stop averting your eyes!  But maybe he is just angry because he has been relegated to the bottom of the bag....

And my first screenprint, with her favorite quote.

This is actually the WIP picture... I cleaned a couple of smudges before sending, but those pics didn't come out well.

Hope you like it even close to as much as I loved making it, knightswhosayknit!  Cheesy

I'm so going to buy a pair!! I have them on my wist as well, but I think I'll just get 'em so I don't have to wait any more. Wink

I received from subdefective!
Here are my goodies:

They are three marble charms.  One has a music note, one has quotation marks (I'm a former teacher & editor, love literature), and one has the beginning of the definition for "librarian", which is what I'm going to study in graduate school.

So, in a weird way this makes me feel better.  I'm not the only one who creates surrounded by mess  Grin

I can DEFINITELY relate to that sentiment!

*Sigh*  This was the perfect day for me to find this... my family is coming to visit tomorrow, and the hubby has been in quite a bad mood over the crafting... (mind you, I should actually be cleaning rather than posting pictures of the mess, but meh.)

So, this is where I started (not taken today, cleaning is a WIP)

Hopefully I'll have some good news to post tomorrow before they all get here!

I received from redpopsicles today!  Here's my ravenclaw-y goodness!!!
The whole stash:

A hand-knitted Rowena Ravenclaw dolly (OMG!) in the book colors, of course!  The remaining panne velvet was also included, and I'm going to use it in a mixed-fabric quilt that I started some time ago. Look at her teeny toothpick wand!!!!!!

Hand-knitted Ravenclaw cuffs.  I can't wait until it cools down a bit so I can wear these!!!!

Two pairs of Ravenclaw earrings, the darker of which match my current outfit (so I'm wearing them already as I write this!)

A GORGEOUS hand-painted Rowena shirt... my favorite thing out of the whole lot!!!
