Here's where we can post our results!
I'll start! This is what I got from Purple Hippo...a bountiful supply of gorgeous new jewellery!
Here's the bounty (I got so much and was so excited that I thought it would be nice to show you why...



And here it is with a bit more detail... out of it's packaging my fav so far are the pink star earrings with the little pink dice (on the green card)! Where do you get those dice?! They're gorgeous!


Sorry the photo doesn't show up the little card.."Starry Shari Designs" with a cute little star with an S inside.

Thanks Purple Hippo I'll swap with you again any day!

Can't wait to see everyone elses!

Here are the awesome pressies I got from Sarahdotcom:

The mermaid has pearls in her hair and a sequin tail and there's a cute little turtle charm on the zip.

Sorry this pic is really bad! But its a cool bracelet of plastic rectangles with pin-ups in them... Kinda like a pin-up in an ice cube!

This is another really bad pic of the charms she sent as well. They are a mermaid, a starfish and a seahorse.

Thanks so much Sarah! These gifts are awesome!  Grin

Haha, you're not far wrong, actually - I used an ice cube tray to make them!

I got your package yesterday, yay!  It's absolutely perfect.  I'll post pics as soon as I can.

I got my package from Starmeg today -- it's awsome!  I love it.  And it's like you actually measured my wrist for the cuff...

The outside of the bag (it's a beaver and says BEAVER underneath Cheesy ) :



The inside:



The wrist cuff:



Your package may or may not have arrived in NZ yet -- I sent it about five days ago, so it should get there soon.  Thank you! Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

This is the book that jan_on_ice sent me - isn't it incredible?  I'd love to know how you made it, Janice, but I don't know if I'd have the patience to do it myself! 



And this is a brilliant idea - she made me a sheet of stickers that I can use to decorate the book!

It's almost too lovely to use, but on the other hand it is made to be used, so I will try!  I usually have a book to write down all my crafty ideas in, and I have run out of room in my old one so this came just in time Smiley

Yay! I'm glad you liked it!
Journals aren't all that hard to make. This tutorial is really easy and straight forward, it's the one that I use to make all my books/journals:

That journal rocks - where did you get the graphics?

It all seems to be going so well...  us Kiwis and Aussies are an honest bunch, it seems!  Thanks, everyone, for being so on-to-it and helpful and friendly, it's been a great (easy!) swap to organise.

If anyone is without a package by Xmas, let me know...

Crumpet - I'm so glad you liked to Beaver Bag.  I'm so looking forward to getting something else in the mail.  I love parcels...

woot woot!  I got ART!  thanks, Crumpet, you are a freaking star, I love it.  The paper you wrapped it in stuck a little to the painted piece, but my skills with taking the labels off jars are coming to the fore (no, I'm not soaking it in the sink!).  Thanks so much, now I just have to figure out where to put them.

I don't have the digital camera skills - I don't have access to one right now - so if you took pictures before you sent, then please post them so everyone else can see how great your skills are and how lucky I am. 

and yeah, Hanabi is sooo right - post when you receive (I would also like to know, in my esteemed capacity as Swap Organiser...)

Wow.  Those paintings are awesome.

So, who's up for another swap?  I was really happy with the way this one went (apart from people not posting their goodies! the ones that have been posted were awesome though, I guess it's that Kiwi ingenuity and Aussie... something Tongue )

Well, I just got back from my holis to find an awesome crazy Christmas doll from Tammie (who is also on holidays...) waiting for me at the post office.  I will have to take photos - as soon as I find my camera.  This was really great by the way - thanks for organising it!!!
