Hey lookie! I got my package! And it's full of really shiny stuff! Here's what Radegund was kind enough to send me:



A Firefly zipper pull and Jayne hat pin! So cute! My boyfriend nearly stole the pin, but I stopped him with my cunning  Wink



Two appropriately mismatched drinking glasses painted with the ivy on the walls of Serenity's galley, I always loved how nice and homey it looked!



Return address labels with related pictures! Awesome! I never in a million years would have thought of this, they're fantastic! I know quite a few people who'll be getting letters now, and maybe even the cable company!  Grin

And finally-



A Firefly pocket pillow for use while watching many hours of the show! I'm in awe of this, it's wonderful! And ssoo many pockets, I'll have to buy a few comics to fill them! Smiley Oh, and even the ties have meaning- pink for Kaylee's dress, red for the Reavers and purple for Alliance! Here are some detail pics, and some of the other side:



Serenity herself, complete with a golden engine and trail!



And a little Earth That Was hiding behind a pocket!



And here's the reverse, a reenactment of the Great Dinosaur Betrayal! They'll forever argue on my sofa now!

And lastly, the group shot:



Lovely! Thanks so much Radegund, Pretendpeterpan and everyone else! This has been so much fun, especially for a first swap!  Grin

I have finished! Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy
Will be sending Saturday or Tuesday our time, that will be Monday in US. The Easter long weekend means that everything is closed Friday, Sunday and Monday. I have to see if my local post office is open on Saturday.

I've been so busy crafting that I completely forgot to look at the gallery!  Now I'm even more inspired.  Everything looks terrific and I love the pillow.  I read in all sorts of funny positions, so I like pillows. 

The goslings are also wonderful.  I've been threatening my bf with a set of them, but he's not as enthusiastic about them as I am.

I trekked to the post office yesterday... then realized I'd left a few little goodies out of the package. The main goodies are all there, but I wanted to send some American geegaws to Australia, and didn't.

Honestly, how COOL is it to Serenity Swap from DC to Australia? Only in Craftster Grin

If the P.O is open tomorrow I'll be sending Syrlig her first installment....I had to split the package as it was no longer of a size to be classed as a "small packet" and would have cost me 20 to post! My fella is pretty easy going with the s but I think I'd be pushing my luck at that  Roll Eyes so "the big one" is going first followed by the smaller one after the public hols.
