Smiley  Cheesy  Grin This swap gallery is intended as a way to recognize all the wonderful personal swaps that are done in this community!   Grin  Cheesy  Smiley

Personal swaps are not encouraged or supported by Craftster.  This is only a thread to post pictures from your personal experiences.  Personal swaps are not and cannot be tracked in Swap Feedback on profiles and should not be linked to Craftster's Organized Swaps in any way.

Folks who have participated in a personal swap and wish to share pictures of the items they have sent and received may do so by posting in this gallery.

Please note that this gallery is meant for those who have had a good experience with their personal swaps!  This is not the place to air your grievances about being "flaked" on...please keep it positive and give love to those awesome personal swappers! Wink

Each month a new gallery will be started.  If you have received from a personal/private swap, within the month, feel free to post pictures here!   Grin

Or browse previous galleries...

Note: Usually sweets4ever starts up these monthly galleries, but she's in Hawaii on her honeymoon. Smiley

tazzell just sent me a fantastic package! First, a gorgeous stencilled thistle on a t-shirt. The pic doesn't do it justice- it's a coppery metallic color on a light aqua shirt. Gorgeous!



Next, a fabulous owl cable potholder! I love the owl cable and I have needed more potholders. It's terrific!



And finally, a cross-stiched owl made by her daughter. She made one for the last round of the Owl Swap, and I fell in love with it. It is just so cute! She kindly stitched another one for me!




Thanks, Taz (and your DD)! I love it all!

I just did a personal swap with Luxielou and she sent me an awesome polymer clay kit! I'm so excited to get started, I checked out a polymer clay book from the library today and was reading it at work all day!

Directions, along with a picture tutorial for an adorable covered altoid tin she made

A blade and roller


Magnets, Mirrors, and an Altoid Tin (still has altoids in it!) to cover


Some scrap clay, and really cute magets and a charm she made


4 canes Luxielou made!


And slices from each one, I had to see!


And, oh yeah, lots of clay!


Thanks Luxielou, this was a great swap and I can't wait to get started making stuff!

I got a surprise package from xladyluckx this morning!

First, there was a note that said " These wanted to go to your house, and I said ok!" Grin

She sent an ESP (a brand of guitar) wrist cuff, and these extremely wonderful kitchen hand towels. Aren't these the coolest hand towels ever?

Thank you so much for the surprise goodies! I love them! You are the best, Leah! Kiss

Yup! They are the coolest towels!

A long, long time ago Original Youth and I arranged an ATC swap because I loved some playing cards she'd altered so much. I sent some to her, and she to me. When they didn't arrive she sent some more...when they didn't arrive she sent yet again...and thank goodness she's persistent because 3rd time lucky they arrived! Grin



(I have a playing card addiction! Grin)

Thank you so much OY!

Sewknitter and I did another personal swap and I received these beautiful tatted bracelets.


They are my favorite colors and I told her I have small writs and they fit perfectly! There was also a pretty heart bookmark? in there that I forgot to photograph.

Thanks so much Sewknitter! It was a pleasure swapping with you again Smiley

I got a present from Alwaysinmyroom today!!

It's a beeeautiful calorimetry!  She made it a bit thinner for me because I don't think hats ever look good on me, but I REALLY want them to. Cheesy  It's made from handspun yarn from knitwit that's just divine.

Sooo pretty!

Both of my cameras are broken Cry, so I scanned this little bugger!

Look at it this way. It's not a hat it's a headband! They are great for putting your hair back if you don't feel like doing anything with it and want to look pulled together.
That yarn reminds me of Rainbow Sherbert. Smiley

A headband!  That's exactly what she said!

I'm totally in love with it.  My hair is pretty straight/slipper and accessories always slip from it, but not this one... the nubby yarn grabs and holds on for dear life.  It's perfect!
