I received as we were packing up the van to leave for vacation on Thursday, DH wasn't pleased I stopped to open the package so I really don't think he would have been pleased if I paused to take pictures  Cheesy So now onto the good stuff! MeShelltakeone was a great partner and sent me lots of goodies, including a purse, yarn, needles, ribbon, socks, and beads.

and the gorgeous purse that my husband thinks I already have this fabric, no, but I do have similar paper  Cheesy

I love the purse, just in case you can't tell  Wink

I got a wonderful parcel from Titancia over a week ago. She has been very patiently waiting for me to  post pictures. Everything was wrapped up beautifully with ribbons  and charms and has little notes giving clues attached to the parcels. I put everything on the bed and gloated for a few minutes. She put so much thought into everything she made and bought. We had lots of fun emailing each other during this swap - we have so much in common -it's amazing for a random swap.




Neither of us is a natural seamstress so I know the work that went into the two book covers that she made me. I never had bookcovers before so I didn't realise how handy they are - especially for reading in the bath. Apologies for the sideways pic. There was also  a novel "I Capture the Castle" which i have finished already.



I got lots of goodies - badges, pins that say "vote" ( I have a mild politics obsession, sour sweets and gum(in the crown royal bag), tattoos, useful magnetic lists ( I love making lists), a stamping thing, 3 lovely bookamarks(in constant use since I got them(I love reading and have a fine bookmark collection). I also got sharpies(can't get them here) and tissues with my initial and a little rose charm.




Here are the earrings - not a great picture.


I collect gem stone eggs and I got these wonderful eggs. Don't they look real? I put them in egg cups straight away:D


Titancia made me jewellery (we are both jewellery addicts. I make and sometimes sell jewellery but I love getting it in swaps, just love it.)
Here you can see the four(!) necklaces I got and the pin. Also in the photo is the pouch I got for my lip glosses/balm because I have loads but can never find one when I need one. And you can also see the password journal I got. I saw that Titancia's sister CloverGrace made one for her swap partner and I was hoping to get one too.


This is a close-up of the beautiful resin pendants. I put on my list that I love mermaids and the sea. The mermaid one has gotten a lot of wear.





This is another necklace that has gotten a lot of wear. It has my favourite colour blue in it and fits the neckline of many of my tops beautifully. You can also see the pin here too. It is so sparkly. I love dragons. I wore it to a meeting last week with a pair of the earrings and felt grand.





I got seven pairs of earrings - one for every day of the week which made me happy. She wrote a poem to explain each earring. Some of my favourites are not here - 2 pairs with roses on them - I love roses. Also not shown(they are on my bag are three cool badges she made me - a Jane Austen one (a mutual interest), a Victorian one (another mutual interest) and a number 5 one (our favourite number!).

Thanks again titancia. This was a great swap. Hope you like what I made you half as much

Thanks to my  husband for helping me with the pictures - my excuse is I have a new computer;p

Everything looks great. I have been enjoying my goodies on a daily basis. I like those little zombies, even though I am sort of scared of zombies...

TAOJ - when I saw the fabric I thought it looked like the one you used to make my needle roll and project bag from the random swap last year. It looks very similar.

I got mine!  My poor swap partner; her package got lost but after I raised a ruckus at the P.O., they found it!  So here is all my awesome stuff:

http://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=165522&ppuser=53317

Beautiful pirate journal with a skull on the front (kind of hard to see) and matching bookmark.  This is my new favorite thing!

http://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=165523&ppuser=53317

Two pairs of earrings, exactly my style, and a magnet of a taxidermy mouse on toast.  You have to know me to get it. 

http://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=165524&ppuser=53317

Funny skull pin and huge set of marble tacks for my inspiration board! 

I am so excited about my stuff and so glad it arrived (whew!).

if everyone in my group could check the first page and check that your color is right.

if you are PURPLE and wish to get feedback, please make sure you have posted pics!

if it doesnt say you have received, make sure you have sent me a PM saying you have

if you have sent and it doesnt show that, make sure you have sent me a PM with your DC Smiley




this was such a neat idea for a swap..and all the packages look absolutely wonderful!

I'm not in your group, but just for the record mine should be marked as completed. I PMed GothChics on the 1st of August with the DC# and posted photos of the things I received (pgs. 9 & 10 of this gallery) AND sent (pg. 12).

How I've managed to keep track of that is anyone's guess.  Grin
