I received a personal swap package from Fidget!!  She rrrrooocks my socks off.  Smiley
It started off as one shrinky dink of a jellyfish and ended up with a whole box of goodies!  It was a quick & spontaneous swap that was a lot of fun to craft for.  Kiss

I'm running behind, but I'll take pictures and post 'em soon as I can.  I know she has some as well, so Fidgie, please post so everyone can be jealous of me...hehe.

When my package gets to her, we'll post more photos!  Thanks so much, my caffiene-addicted Craftster!  Smiley
My pleasure, Sweets4ever! 

It all started with jellyfish, and then I just kept doodling. 

I am SO glad you kept doodling... 'cause I love each & every one of the shrinkies.  I was so excited digging through them.  I'm sure I looked quite ridiculous, but I just love 'em.  Smiley

I would have never known that you're a polyclay novice & now that I do I am afraid to try it myself!  If your pieces are novice, what on earth will mine be classified as?   Cheesy

*happy sigh*  Thanks again!   Kiss

HSH Stephen Weaver, the fabulous Prince Consort of SABLE and I had a personal swap.  ...he sent me the most fabulous craft I've seen in a while: a hand embroidered, hand colored, soft sculpture globe!!

Packed in with the globe where eight sachets (also in the picture) stuffed with lavender from his garden... ephemera from across the pond, everything from bus passes, to Royal Opera tickets, to lottery tickets, postage stamps, post cards, theater announcements, claim checks and grocery receipts.

Whoa, Fidget...so, what did you do to get in so good with the ultra craft guy in London? You've got the whole world in your hands now (Ha! couldn't resist). And, what a nice touch to throw in all of that great British emphera...why, if you wanted, you could make folks believe you'd been to London recently...or you could just craft up all of those goodies. Wink

Ezri_B, here is a link to the page with the pdfs for the patterns and instructions for the globe.  Stephen ( Kiss mmmmmmwah!) found it on my wists and saved me the effort of making one for myself.  I'm still all a-twitter over it. Smiley

Najah, I was totally blown away by the awesomeness of this swap.  I had books related to a craft he was newly interested in and chose to share them with him.  He's a great fella, not shy and willing to swap stash stuff.  Drop him an IM and you may be surprised what turns up. Smiley

ooh, thank you so much! The one stephen made you is far better looking than the one there, but now I may have to work on my own.

Clovergrace and I traded doggy clothes. She sewed a boy shirt for my Zeke and I knit a Care Bears sweater for her Clover. Here's some action shots of Zeke in his shirt. I LOVE it!
