I'm really enjoying seeing the great things everyone has got so far. This is a really fantastic swap!

This is what I've been lucky enough to get so far:


From Ralph, a gorgeous resin pendant and necklace. The pendant has two sides but I couldn't get a good photo of the other side so you'll just have to take my word for it! I also got a lovely card and an origami ornament/book, and they all go together so nicely!


From Taniquel, a beautiful pyramid bag. The fabrics are so nice and there is the cutest bird sillhouette button on the top. The card has a lovely beaded Christmas bauble on it that I'm going to try and take off and use as an ornament later.


From Jehnaier, some amazing artwork. I can't believe how talented she is. I'm going to frame them eventually...althou gh currently they're sitting on a cross stitch that's been waiting several years to be framed!

Thanks everyone, I'm thrilled with everything I've got so far!

Edited to add correct photo. Oops!

I got a package from Calliebuggie on Friday. Sorry it has taken so long to post pics!

She sent this grogeous owl I have decided to name Ivan. He has such personality! Her stitches are so tidy.

She also sent this lovely Gingerbread card.

Thanks so much for the package! I think your owl is great.

Here are photos from the other lovely swap parcels I received. Sorry about the poor quality, I think I was over enthusiastic when resizing them.


This one is from cyndiq, as well as the gorgeous journal that I requested, she also sent me some sweets and a lovely Christmassy scrunchie. The journal will really come in handy when I go overseas next year. The card she sent me is lovely and all textured.


This is the card from missmelissa, with a cute little train on the front. Does anyone else think it's lots of fun making train noises, or is that just me?


Inside were these TWO lovely pendants. I've already worn the one on the right, they're just fantastic!

Thanks so much to all my swap partners, I've loved everything I've received!

I wore one pair of your earrings yesterday, Melmakespretty, and loved them. The other pair I wore today to the Boxing Day Test (work rather than play) and will go back to the first pair for tomorrow. Love 'em, thanks!

My final show and tell, from cyndiq. A lovely beaded bookmark and some cute earrings, both in red. I love red glass everything! I love the card, GO THE CUTTLEBUG! I got those two embossing plates as a present....on boxing day.

Schnerby, I am so glad you love the earrings!
Cyndiq, Thanks again for organising a great swap, can't wait for next years!

Lovely work guys!

Cyndiq, that headband with the hair elastic in it is fantastic. Idea officially snuffled for future use...

Taniquel, how do you make those ornaments? I'm a bit puzzled as to how it is so neat?

Jehnaier, your art is beautiful. I love looking at the things you have made.

Everyone else, I am really enjoying this gallery and will comment some more in the future about your stuff  Wink
