I got my package! Yay! Evilsarah spoiled me rotten! Here's the loot:

A new iron? Couldn't be....


It isn't! It's way more awesome than a new iron! Lovely earrings to represent air:




A beautiful incense burner... which looks like swirling seas!



A closer look (which still doesn't do it justice)

A beautiful planter (how did you know I had drooled over this?)

A super-awesome steel water bottle. I have wanted one of these for a long time... now I have one! And it's way better than the plain ones on TV!

And these great votive candleholders that have been etched with flames!

Action shot!

Thank you for all the great stuff!!!

Ooooh action shot. I wanted to take one, but I didn't have my own candles. They look just as good as I hoped. The symbol on the water bottle is *supposed to be* the Chinese symbol for water. It's pretty close anyway. I'm glad you like your leaf pot as well. In my opinion, it's way better than the first one I posted here. After I made it I went and bought the materials to make myself one (final...I gave the first one to a friend)

Oh wow, so many great things in here already!

I love those slippers! They look so soft and snuggly.

The elemental star is beautiful! Is that a pond skater bug? He's cute! Cheesy

That planter is amazing! I'm in awe of your polymer clay cane making skills.

Fantastic job everyone!

Those slippers do look very inviting and comfy! and i love the little elements book too.  The flamed candle holders are such a good idea, they look great Smiley

So many lovely things and that's just the first three parcels, can't wait to see more Grin

Here is the package I got from cat9!



Everything is nicely packaged in different kinds of fabric that I'll probably use to embroider stuff on.



The fuzzy ball on the left is actually two balls of yarn.  They are a little shiny in real life and very soft.  If I ever figure out how to crochet or knit, I will make something out of them Smiley



Here is water.  It is a necklace made of silver shells and pearly white rocks.  Pretty cool, huh?



For air, there is a long string with tons of little bells on them.  I hung them on my door to get a good picture.  They make a nice sound when they are moved.



Here's a picture of one of the bells so you can get a good look at them:



Here's fire.  It's a small book made of fabric that you use to put your needles in.  The pages are made of felt, and it even came with needles and pins already inside Smiley  I'm glad of that because I only had one needle before, but now I have four needles and four pins.





Here is some soap, for earth.  It smells great and looks really cool because of the fir trees floating inside of it.  When I first saw it, it immediately reminded me of Pennsylvania because of the shape, but it actually isn't the same shape (I had to look it up online Smiley).  And the soap came from Vermont, anyway.



And here is the most awesome thing, also for earth.  A scarf!



I don't even understand how you can crochet such curvy shapes, but it looks great!  I tried to get a picture of the whole thing, but it didn't turn out so good because the picture is so small.



Thanks, cat9!  Your stuff is amazing and you were a really good partner during the swap process as well Cheesy
