I hope that grace doesn't mind but I really wanted to post the pictures of the items I got from Luna on our swap! It's my first swap so I am over excited lmao.


first is this AMAZING box to keep my jewelry in. It's so big and pretty!


Here is the top detail. I'm a virgo which means virgin so the lady is appropriate


action shot! There is a little top try thing that holds all my small jewelry.


and the larger lower area holds all of my big jewelry!

also she sent me


this super cute little eyeglass bag! (green is my fav color)


this adorable 'virgo' necklace was inside the bag!


and this awesome virgo purse! I could never sew anything so well!

thank you so much luna! Everything is awesome!

Yay! Thanks SarahsALoser, for starting a gallery. I was wondering where it was!  If I had realized I could, I would have started a thread the other day. I'll post a link in the swap thread in case anyone misses this.

And, I love your Virgo items! I'm a Virgo, too! But, I am also a Sheep/Ram, and that is the theme of my amazing items from Platinumrexx!

The fabulous (and huge) zippered pouch- the Chinese symbol for Ram is stenciled on and outlined in gold thread. It also has gold stitching across the bag.



Then, all of the fantastic stuff! The pouch, a bookmark, a fabulous wallet (complete with a lucky dollar bill- I think I'll use it to buy a lottery ticket Wink ), a lamb with a yarn body (already wound into a ball and designated for a project!), and a great stencil of a ram (we both intended to make journals for each other, and we both had "difficulties" with our journal covers- this is what is left...  Cheesy ). I'm going to make a small pouch with the ram stencil fabric and use it in the large zippered pouch.



And then a close-up shot of the wallet  so you can see the detail (right down to an embroidered ram symbol). Beautiful!




I love it all platinumrexx! Thank you so much!

The funny thing about the ram stencil is that when I first looked at it, I was having trouble seeing the ram! I could tell that there was a horn, but I was looking at it at the wrong angle. I turned it and the ram just popped into focus!

And, last Sunday, my mom, sis and I did a bit of thrift shopping. I found this oddly cool ram bookshelf (at least I think it was a ram and not a goat). But I didn't buy it...After I opened my package from platinumrexx, I called up my mom and asked her to go back and get it for me. I just realized that I should ask her to take a picture of it so I can post it, but I'll have to wait until she gets back from her trip later in the week.

Here's my fabulous package from SarahsALoser!

My signs are pisces and the dog...

Sarah sent me an uber cute dog tshirt with "dog" in Chinese, a felt plushy skeleton puppy dog, an ipod cozy with a similar x-ray Dolphin, a beaded necklace with two silver dolphins, an awesome embroidered Pisces pillow, a pack of fish stickers, a pack of dog stickers, and a booklet of awesome stickers with sayings about dogs...











Talon approves:


Thanks a bunch Sarah!

Wow! lunascura, you got some great stuff! I love the x-ray dog and dolphin (and your live dog is adorable!) and the Pisces pillow is fantastic! I thought it was screen printed and was impressed enough, but then I read that it was embroidered and I was bowled over (outstanding job Sarah!). I like the t-shirt and necklace, too!

... I confess I didn't make the pillow. I tried to make the pillow and then I failed and then real life reared it's head. We have this awesome store called 'china town express' in our local mall and I found that pillow and thought it was perfect.

I'm just so glad the ipod fits in the cozy. I made like 3 of them before I was satisfied.

That embroidered Pisces pillow, wow. I love it so much. I usually don't like pieces with a pisces theme but this... Sweet, sweet pillow of love.

And perfect it was! And now I can be impressed with your honesty Wink
