Wow they are amazing photos, is that a wild bear?
I've just a couple of things to finish up and then I will be heading for the post office hopefully tomorrow. 
Yes well stone as a craft material will boost up the old package rate I would suspect. Grin

I love those arrowhead earrings, Cabin Fever... how cool that your husband's a fletcher.

I'm wrapping up work on my package... just finishing up the Large, which is much larger in time that I originally estimated. But hopefully I'll get it shipped tomorrow. Can't wait to see more from everyone!

Better get one of those flat rate boxes! I can't live without them.  Yes, that is a wild grizzly bear, we have almost 2 browns (grizzly's) per square mile on this island, we see them all the time. I prefer seeing them when I'm in the car or boat though!

You know, my pkg that I sent cost me like 15 bucks.  How...I'm not entirely sure.  I totally forgot about the flat rate boxes but the wall hanging wouldn't have fit in that anyhow!  And, you used stone??  Eek.  I didn't think mine was going to be very heavy. Wrong-O.

Mine was about 25 bucks, but that's because it was international.  When I got my big idea I had completely forgot that k-roc is in Canada, and the item is kinda heavy...but I really liked it, so I couldn't leave it out!

I talked to the folks at the PO.  They say flat rate boxes are ideal for heavy items.  I sent a package recently and the box was bigger than the flat rate box, but because it was light weight, it cost less to send priority than the flat rate. 

And, Bosssanders, your package came in a flat rate box, just an oversized one.  I think that was the reason that it cost more.

I have recieved a BRILLIANT package from Tiggyjn. This was her first swap and i think she did extremely well!

Get your wist button ready  Wink Sorry for the mass of photos but i prefer to take too many than not enough!

A gorgeous bunny made from recycled fabrics.


A bookmark made from a real leaf (?) laminated with a really nice fish bead on the end. I think the bead is made from stone?


A very pretty tote bag.


Some dragonflies. I have to call them dragonflies as my husband thinks they look like moths and he is scared of moths  Cheesy


A Lucky Hag stone from Durwich Beach in Suffolk. Click here if you dont know what a hag stone is.


A box which has pictures of trees and nature scenes as a collage. It looks great and now holds my shells from my local beach that iv collected  Grin


Beautiful candles.


They were wrapped in pretty handmade papers.


And the letter looks to have been marbled? Its very pretty.


And as if that isnt enough i saved my favourite for last... A lovely watercolour painting incorporating all of my favourite natural things, and a celtic knot in the tree with my initial inside. I absolutely adore it and it is now above my computer so i can see it all the time  Grin



For a sort of size ref..
