By the way, Brianaknits, i think you might have put this up as two swaps at once. When i went to check my feedback, it said i was in an additional "fairytale swap" run by you, which remains in progress. i think this might just be a signup mistake, but i'm not sure how to get rid of it. does anybody else have this?

So it looks as though there may be some issues that prevent my swap partner from posting pics.  I took a few shots before I sent off so I'll post them now.

I based my swap around the kids book Rumplestiltskin's Daughter.  I'm not going to go too far into the story, but I do suggest that you read it.  It's a very cute story.

So first, here is a multi strand gold beaded necklace.  It's suppossed to be the necklace that the miller's daughter gave to Rumplestiltskin on the first night in the tower.

At one point in the store Rumplestiltskin's Daughter and the King hand out gold yarn and knitting needles to villagers.  So I whipped up a gold bag and threw in some gold eyelash yarn and gold knitting needles.  There may have been some golden (chocolate) coins as well. (Sorry this is not a fab picture)

I also included a fabric covered journal.  I had been saving a fairy tale wall hanging for a while, and this seemed like the perfect occassion to finally use it.  One the front of the journal there is a king and a princess.  The inside cover is a piece of scrapbook paper that reads "Once Upon a Time" and the back inside cover reads "Far Far Away"
Front Cover:

Inside Front Cover:

Inside Back Cover:

And lastly a made a stationary set.  At the end of the story you learn that Rumplestiltskin's Daughter's name is Hope.  When I researched symbology of Hope, the resounding response was a cross.   Because my swap partner collects crosses, I thought it would be appropriate to make cross themed stationary.  You can see the cross on the first page of the journal.

So that's all.  Sorry the pictures don't show everything.  It's too bad my partner couldn't post pics.

I was adoptasong's swap angel.  She received last week, so I here is what I sent.  I took the tale of Vasilissa the Beautiful, and the witch in the story is the interesting character of Baba Yaga.

Package contents:  Baba Yaga's napkins, her needle book, crocheted pot scrubbers, Vasilissa's doll - Drooga and her pouch (not pictured), and a manicure/pedicure set for use after all those long walks in the forest.
