That was just the best ever, and I love it all. And the journal will give me a good way to keep up with swaps. You are a doll.

I have finally got a working camera and learned how to use it. So prepare to adore the great package I got from lovesclutter. We agreed on a stash swap and she sent me a ton of stuff. (this is most of it!)

notice the great printed fabric she did of my name and some images I really like.

 Awesome fabric, including gorgeous silks and brocades,

 the colours of these are amazing, she also sent me some great stretch fabrics as I am working with those at the moment. Some beads and an exquisitely delicate vintage lace hanky, Some great fun yarn (I think this might be a future poppets hair)



best of all is these two bags, one for me and one for DD they are fabulously wild and fun, we love them!

This is DD posing (reluctantly!) with hers


thanks so much LovesClutter. This was an awesome package and I've loved swapping with you.

Awesome, I'm so glad you liked it. I loved swapping with you. I had forgotten what was in there. I think if you look in one of those bags, you may find some more beads. LOL

ETA, I think I just found them here. Shucks. and DD looks great. Love the black nailpolish.

Today I got another fabulous package in the post.

AlteredMommy and I agreed to do a personal swap. She very generously sponsored a prize for a craft challenge, which I won, so since she was sending that, we topped it up with a personal swap.

I couldnt believe all the incredible stuff that arrived today. The prize was a cigar box filled with all sorts of whimsies/collage elements etc. I sent her a weekend bag and she sent me some artwork...but there was so so much more.
This is the whole lot ( i am tall, but had to stand on a chair to get them all in!)


My daughter dived on these charms, which are brilliant.

(the chocolate bar has unaccountably vanished.)
I love these loteria cards and vintage paper elements.

More fabulous paper stuff.
(my DD wants to know what the white 'cards' are in the lower part of this picture)
Great steampunky stuff and more metal elements. Cool paper flowers!

Brilliant creepy doll limbs and face, (I love the card btw!) Domino/bingo tiles.

and the art work she sent is fabulous.

This piece is sanctuary, isnt it wonderful, i really love this, the design, the colours.


And this wonderful little goddess figure, designed to be held in the had, like the venus of willendorf, I love it, she is on my household altar now


Thankyou so much AlteredMommy, I love everything

Oh you are so set to craft. Such a lovely package, and I love the leg charm, don't know why that stood out.

wow, that got there fast!  I'm such a slacker in posting pics of the fabulous weekend bag that edel sent me...
Edel's package arrived a couple of hours before I left for a weekend trip and its totally perfect, I packed 2 days worth of stuff (and extra) in it!

and here are some extra goodies she included, a couple of really cute bird pins off my wist, a great little pouch (perfect for the traveling jewelry) and a sweet lil' skully that my daughter has been eyeing up Smiley


It was fun swapping with you, congratulations on winning the shrine challenge and enjoy all the shrine making goodies!  oh, and the white tags are old stock tags, I think they're the names of different ranches that the stockyards  use to identify the cattle.  a random antique store find Smiley  the arm and leg are milagros that I picked up in Mexico last time I was there.

Is your daughter on craftster at all, Edel? Do you think she could be persuaded to join? All the pictures I've seen and the things you've said make her sound like a really awesome person :-)

When she was good, she was very very good - but when she was bad she was fabulous.
