Smiley  Cheesy  Grin This swap gallery is intended as a way to recognize all the wonderful personal swaps that are done in this community!   Grin  Cheesy  Smiley

Folks who have participated in a personal swap and wish to share pictures of the items they have sent and received may do so by posting in this gallery.

Please note that this gallery is meant for those who have had a good experience with their personal swaps!  This is not the place to air your grievances about being "flaked" on...please keep it positive and give love to those awesome personal swappers! Wink

Each month a new gallery will be started.  If you have received from a personal/private swap, within the month, feel free to post pictures here!   Grin

Teeny little charms. I think I'm going to make them into stitch markers.


Look at the little jelly fish!


Teapot emery board.


Tyvek pouch! I've always wanted one!


The most wonderful little tin to keep my needles! I cried when I saw it. This is just so beautiful!

Teapot,  Kiss, you are so welcome!  I'm glad you liked everything. 

Sorry about forgetting to put holes in the shrinkies.  If they break I'll make more for you.  Perhaps it would be better to glue jump rings onto them instead of drilling holes? 

Don't cry, Sweets4ever!  Did you want a jelly fish, too?  Wink

I tried shrinkies once & they curled Sad  I have lots of the paper though, so you have inspired me to try again!  I've researched more on them now... I have faith once again!

I DO want a jelly fish, though!  Can I have one?  Can I make you something?  *bounce*  PM me if you are serious...teehee!  I find happiness in small things in life...no pun intended Tongue

If your shrinkies curled they just weren't done yet.  If you leave them in a bit longer they will flatten themselves.  Most folks panic when they see them curling and want to yank them out of the oven and try to push them flat.  Physics will take over if you just leave them in the oven a bit longer.

Ahh... you're my hero Smiley   Someone suggested using foil under them, rather than paper.  What do you use?
