Thanks so much aliastriona!!
You're very very welcome! Grin

I received from bhean today!  It is a happy occasion, yes, but it is also sad because it means I'm done with this swap Cry

She chose my Celtic theme and made me this gorgeous little shrine:


I absolutely love it!  Green has been my color obsession lately, and I especially love green with copper (in fact, what she made for me goes rather well with what I sent to her Wink)


Inside the door is some zoomorphic knotwork, displayed like a bit of stained glass:


And the (glittery!) heart of the shrine has a spiral in the back, a little bundle of oak twigs from Ireland, a neato zoomorphic man (if I peek down behind him it looks like he might have been a pin in his last life...), and a miniature standing stone with some artist/crafter-appropriate Ogham characters carved into it:


This has been an amazing swap...I got two awesome partners who put a lot of thought and insight into what they made for me (you have no idea how amused I am to receive one shrine with Ogham and one with Anglo-Saxon runes...and both glittery...it's like they're inside my head!).  Thank you, bhean, and thank you, alteredmommy, and thank you, goatgoddess - you're all wonderful! Kiss

Managed to get a half decent photo of the shrine that goatgoddess made for me.  Here is an action shot of the cutest dragon shrine hanging on my wall.



Thanks so much gg

bhean, that's beautiful!  Did you dye the paper green yourself?
(And, goatgoddess, I just noticed the lovely dragon after I hit "reply."  Lovely, lovely, lovely also.)

love the 3D dragon gg!  What alot of detail, the dragon egg beads are a great touch.  Is that some kind of lid for the base?
