The cat image was a fridge magnet, and the other images were in a little blank book I made with the title "Nullipara Notes". For the large item I sent another copy of the 2009 childfree page-a-day calendar I made for jungrrl, with quite a few edits...more of an emphasis on the "cats are better than kids" theme.  Smiley

This crafter is out of service most of the rest of 2015 due to a wild schedule, swapping once in a while when I can't fight the feeling anymore ("I've forgotten what I started fighting fooooor...").
Personal swaps: I have lots of home-grown rosemary and white sage available, plus altered journals.

So I've finally gotten around to posting some pictures...   Embarrassed sorry so late.

First, the wonderful package I got from calluna, my swap angel!

A childfree page-a-day calendar:


The "shoes on the cat" fridge magnet and a bumper sticker:


"Nullipara Notes" blank book:


One of the pictures from the book: "There sweetheart, now you know how mommy feels."


Then I received a package from MollyGirl, my original partner.  She sent me:

An ornament (full of child-unfriendly pins), a condom case, and a domino necklace that reads "Childfree - Biology Isn't Destiny":


And an apron, for all that cooking I couldn't do if I had kids.  (I love to cook.)


And I have a pic of what I sent to MollyGirl:
- A bag with a picture of her dogs and the words "Ask Me About My Children"
- A chew toy for her dogs
- A tea towel with the Subversive Cross Stitch "Babies Suck" design
- A sushi ornament, to represent all the foods and beverages you have to give up during pregnancy


Thank you both, ladies!  Smiley Smiley Smiley

Edit: Grrr... My camera rotated some of the images.  I tried to rotate them back - looks like it didn't work Sad

I'm sooo late but here is the awesome page a day calendar that calluna sent me!   It has a bird on every page and quotes/holidays/musings about being childfree.  It's awesome!
