Finally here are some pics of the wonderful things that kawoosh_girl sent me - well, MOST of the things.  It seems that my 5 year stepdaughter has claimed the lovely etched wooden box for herself filled it with her "treasures" and has hidden it in her room.  Perhaps kawoosh_girl can post a pic of the box if she has one, I may be a while in the treasure hunt.  Honestly it is high praise from her to steal it for her treasures, she leaves presents at the fairy door in our hall and the fairies leave her things in return and they are priceless to her.  When she is at her moms she calls to check if the fairies have remembered her.  Anyway, here are pics of the rest of the lovely things:

First up some lovely Outlander themed cards


Next we have some booklets with quotes.  I have decided to use these for none other than quotes - I collect them


And (with all the other things minus the gorgeous box) is the very CHARMING chain.  It is brimming with many wonderful outlandish charms!

she included this legend explaining the charms
a card for black jack randall
highland hatchet
snow and ashes flake
the sow (a particular favorite of mine)
Jared's wine
claire's wolf
a coin for mr.willoughby
black onyx
green opal
tree of life
a (not-quite cherrywood but still...) snake
ellen's pearls
celtic knot
lallybroch
a dragonfly
clarie's jet rosary
ship's steering
sun
copper heart - love across time

And what is that on the far right you ask? I squealed with delight to find bookplates autographed by Diana Gabaldon herself!!!!!!!!!


Adso approves (that is not really her name but we can pretend...)



Thanks so much kawoosh_girl, everything is delightful!

First off, to stay on topic, fantastic crafts! I love those cards Smiley

Second, OMG kitty! How old is this baby? He/she is so cute! Did you have another cat that had kittens, or is there a story here...?

I'm not doing personal swaps right now, but if you're interested, go ahead and PM me anyway--maybe we can work it out for later. Smiley

My kitty, Shilo, had babies three weeks ago today.  The little one in the picture is the runt of the litter (which endears her to me) and we are calling her Eliza Dolittle - the rest of the little guys are being named after characters from lost (at my hubby's insistence - Hurley, Penny, Desmond and Sawyer.)  I don't know if we are going to be able to part with any of them to other homes.

I received, I received! Everything is so wonderful and perfect, thanks selkie! Unfortunately it will probably be Sunday before I can take pictures, because I'm in the process of moving out of my apartment today--eek! But I'm way excited, so be on the lookout Smiley

Oh good - I started the notebook for the first swap, but I saved the originals!
I did photocopies for this one as well and kept the originals!
I'm guessing that if I keep doing the swaps I'll eventually have a complete set about the books!

Power is strength and the ability to see yourself through your own eyes and not through the eyes of another. It is being able to place a circle of power at your own feet and not take power from someone else's circle.

It's here! It's here! It's here!

And it's excellent! It seems like I've been waiting so long -- slow postal service! But at last, last night I got to open this lovely package.

It was wrapped like this:


And it contained all this:


There was a white historical-style chemise - beautiful - I love it!

There was also this very pretty plaid bookmark - which is great because even though I have lots of bookmarks (ie, only the cheap freebies from the library, etc.), I am still usually reduced to using remote controls, other books, old receipts, spoons, etc. - no longer! Note also the top left corner where there is a leech magnet. he he he!


This amber earring and necklace set (which I am wearing right now!!). Crosswind noted that it reminded her of Claire's eyes - so true!


Now this is quite frankly too cool: it is a Mr Willoughby pin cushion! It is very well-sewn - I was so impressed! Plus it beats the heck out of my old tomato pincushion.



Thank you, Crosswind - everything is great, and I am so excited to make use of everything!

Yay! I'm so glad it finally arrived!  I am going to make myself some leech magnets too. If my husband had his way you would have also received a stuffed crocheted maggot, to be called Maggie (he's just not right - really.)  Maybe it is a little weird to send a stranger underwear but I couldn't help myself.  I am so glad you like everything.

Plus, here is the box that I made for Crosswind (pictures as requested). Cheesy

I woodburned a jewellery box in the style of the box from the end of A Breath of Snow and Ashes...







...and prettied up the inside a little
