Thank You for doing a great job angeling!

You have to PM the organizer and your partner when you both send and receive

If you are sending within US you need to get a DC# or tracking number.  If you are sending internationally you must have proof of shipment in either a receipt or customs number.


We want to see all your goodies so if you don't have a digital camera please get your partner to take pics for you.

Please keep good communication with your partner, and there will be required check-ins that will be done via PM. Also, everyone must post at least once a week on the thread. I will be keeping track and it will be reflected in your feedback comments.

Please feel free to contact me if you have questions, concerns or something comes up.  And remember to HAVE FUN!

organizational notes will be posted on the main thread

please do not reserve a space on here to post photos in later, like they do in some swaps - just post them when you get your package. Otherwise people who put the thread on notify (like me) will not know you posted photos!

Thanks!

Ronda
Blessings!

Oooooh, me first, me first!  Grin lol Wink

I received an amazing package from kstaron. She really spoiled me. I hope you all are ready with those wist buttons.  Cheesy

First - the whole lot of goodies.


She packaged everything so nicely. These are the containers some of the things came in.


For Air -  we have this amazing journal. I just love it. A great pen with bells on top to go with it, and a wonderful butterfly bookmark. My partner joked that now he'll know exactly how well my writing is going by the sound of the bells! She also took the time to write out 33 writing prompts for me. As a writer - I'm in heaven.

Back of journal.


For fire - we have these fantastic hair clips and earrings. I love this - especially the hair clips. I plan on wearing them often! We also have a great bracelet to match the earrings. I love this too; it's totally my style.


And then, she made this dragon scarf - it's the tongue.  Cheesy The velvet feels like heaven.


For water - a lovely seashell pendant, an origami fish pin, and an ever flowing triple moon chalice. These are so great - the pin is too cute. And I love the chalice.


For earth - these are straight off of my wists. She did an amazing job with them. A pincushion and Greenman pendant.


Finally - spirit. This hand painted box (love it!), wishing papers (very cool), and a goddess keychain. Ok ... my confession: inside of this box were some utterly delicious chocolates. They didn't make it into the photo. I'm embarrassed to say how many there were, because then you all would know what a glutton I am!  Cheesy But, rest assured, they were utterly delicious.


Thanks so much kstaron - I really love everything. Smiley

I got my awesome package from tvelez today!  And she did an excellent job, especially since this is her first swap ... there's lots of pics 'cuz I got lots of goodies!

First ... something I was really hoping I would get (since I knew from stalking that she made them) ... a Goddess doll.  She's made of great lavendar fabric with silver stars and she represents Spirit.  She also has a pocket in the back with a pouch filled with lavendar and chamomile.



A beaded pentacle that I am going to hang in the car for protection ...



A little clay cauldron with the triple Goddess symbol (My patron deity is Cerridwen) that I placed on my dresser right away with some other Water things and put some incense in it ...



Candle coasters/altar tiles that I have been wanting for some time - of course representing all four elements ...



A little decorated Yule Tree.  There are little gemstone ornaments hanging on it for all the elements!



And a wonderful necklace representing Water and Earth.  It's moonstones and a pretty blue flowered disc ... the picture doesn't do justice to the blue color at all ...



I just love swapping - I get the coolest stuff!  Thanks so much Tina, you did a great job!!

YAY! I have a HUGE smile on my face! i kinda stalked you and got the idea for the coasters from your wists, although i obviously had a different take on them! I am so glad you love everything! I was getting nervous, but your pm made me so happy. Thanks so much for making my day! Glad you love everything!

Blessings, Tina
