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...

Cat9 and I did a personal swap and I scored this awesomely fuzzy and comfy, cozy scoodie.  (My husband has called it a Scarfy, Sordie, Scardie, Shoodie.... he has problems with words.  Wink ).  I absolutely love it.  I also got an awesome crocheted bonus scarf, but I don't have pics of it.  I wore it to work today and left it at the office.
Thank you so much Cat9!  I'd swap with you again any day!  I hope you love your item as much as I love my scoodie!!!

Awww, Crafty.Canadian, you look adorable in your scoodie! Not like a muppet at all, despite my fears Smiley

Here's my absolutely fabulous painting of Banjo:



It looks just like him Cheesy

the scoodie looks so warm and fuzzy, and the painting nice and realistic.

me and thesapphiremoon did a swap. i got a gorgeous dangly charmy bracelet- with a magnetic closure instead of lobster, so i can put it on myself.

so here's the whole thing:


and this is what it looks like on pretty ole me!

Glad you like it Smiley  Don't have a pic of that exact item, as I forgot to take one before mailing it...but here is a pic of the one gala_apples saw and I modeled one for her after it, minus the leaf charms.  This one is part of my personal jewelry collection Smiley




Enjoy!  Hopefully I will get the striped tights soon...silly Canada post returned it for who knows why  Huh

After seeing beadedbyamy's awesome awesome snitch pendant, I asked her to do a personal swap with me Smiley This is my loot:



and because she wanted to make up for not finding a nickle-free chain (my skin is annoying D:), she also included these:





For my part, she wanted a wintery-themed necklace (not your standard green and red fare though, more like snowy) so I sent her this:



Now, it's quite obvious that this wasn't a fair trade D: so check your mail box every so often Amy, 'cause there's going to be a surprise in there when you least expect it Cheesy Thanks for a fun (and low postage) swap Smiley

Ninjanator, I thought it was a fair trade. Tongue However, if you'd like to send me something else, I won't argue with you! I'm wearing your necklace right now. It's so gorgeous and I love it!

Here's another shot of my snitch pendant:

oh and the snitch is made with 24kt gold plated seed beads, and it's a booger to photo.
