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 this quarter of the year, feel free to post pictures here!   Grin

Or browse previous galleries...

ok! These are pictures from my fantastic swap angel aliceownsj00. All the good'ens are "nancy drew" themed.

The Secret at Shadow Ranch bag! There's nifty stitching near the zipper too. My mom and I agree that it's really classy!


um...it's dark. A "book" with my initials...


But wait! Open it up to find a secret compartment! and bookmarks that remind me of shadow ranch.


Whooooo!!!

I'm fairly sure I got the best angel ever.

Ronda and I must have been good partners, because I also think I got the better end of our swap!   Cheesy

In exchange for the crystals and shells, Ronda made me this epic rug:



Which has turned my somewhat shabby couch into a masterpiece:



(Please excuse the guitar!)

It's absolutely perfect and so BIG!  Thank you so much!

and that is what makes a perfect personal swap! getting what you want in exchange for what you have!

I had a great time making that piece, it turned out nicely and your photos make it look better than I remember it, though it has been in the post for about 5 weeks I think - so I haven't seen it in a while, LOL!

thanks for swapping with me!

The blanket is really great. And I'm kind of digging your couch too.

stitch81 and I did a personal swap too - though she posted her pics in the December list I got mine now so will post here

she made me awesome hand made fabric covered journals - I got one in a swap and asked if we could do a personal swap for two more and she really delivered!

the two new journals:


I am keeping this one - it is so beautiful!


and my DD is going to get this one - she loves rainbows with pink in them  Undecided


only now I may need another one for my other daughter, who doesn't even write much but feels left out! LOL!

A few rounds ago in the Offer What You Have Swap I claimed an awesome bunny hat from the talented Lulubean.  Lana adored it and wore it all winter long.  Unfortunately her head grew so I asked Lulubean if she'd consider making her another and this is the result! 


Lana loves it very, very much! 


Top view so that you can see the bunny's face.  It's stitched beautifully!

Thank you soooo much Lulubean for another amazing swap!!  I hope you get your package soon!

Aw, thanks Superhooker!!  Did you notice her baby wearing the candy wrapper hat.  hehe.  I might try to make her little doll something as a surprise.  Smiley

BTW she loves the Care Bear sweater.  I just washed it last night so that she can wear it again!!  It is sooooo awesome.  Thank you so much!!!  It's like a long distance hug!!
