@NerdyCrochetGal, there seem to be lots of similar-theme swaps (sometimes it's Das de los Muertos, etc).  i hope you can catch the next one (^_^)

creative criticism always appreciated!

even my boyfriend oohed and ahhed with amazement!!

here's my loot:

wow!!! i can't believe how much STUFF crafty gurrl made for me!!!

this AMAZING mirror has bottle caps with images of saints all over the front! it's definitely
one of my very favorite swap items ever! thank you so much!!

i actually had to wrestle these away from my boyfriend. they are two white stoneware skulls, curved to use as bowls or spoon rests, catchalls, etc. again, one of my all-time favorite swap items! wow!!!

i apologize for the fuzzy pictures. my camera doesn't like to focus on small things, and i tried to get as close as i could for detail, without getting too fuzzy. anyway, this is a small box with a gold cross inside the lid! inside the box were these:

ugh! again, i'm so sorry about the crappy pics. i took about a hundred and this was the best.
these are tiny clothes pin magnets with shrinky-dink sugar skulls on them!!! awesome!!

i've already filled this picture frame! it's perfect!!! she even MADE the sugar skulls!!!

this is so cute and hilarious! i wish the picture was better... it's an origami nun!!!

banana and hazelnut scented soap!!! it all smells SO GOOD!!!
i have hidden it from my boyfriend! it's MINE!!!

thank you so much crafty gurrl!!! i LOVE everything you sent and i feel so spoiled!!
this is my favorite swap yet!!
i can't wait to see what everyone else makes!!!

awesome package!!! that mirror is for lack of a better term f&^%ing amazing!!! are the images inside the bottle caps hand painted?

i love personal swaps. i'm looking to swap my art or paper crafts for some re-usable fabric snack bags, fabric sandwich wraps, fabric paper towels, glass pendants, ephemera, or art books.

I could lie and say I did handpaint them, but they are just copies of the internet. Wink

I'm so glad you liked it all!  And that it all was received in one piece.  Every item had a high breakable or smooshable factor! Cheesy
