I'm so glad you like the glass pieces (and that they all arrived whole) and the rest of the package!
I'm relieved you like the Willow panel. I would've liked to do her dark witch or vamp persona, but thought it wouldn't work as well since I wasn't doing facial shading in glass, just painting it. Plus, this was my first time really glass painting.  Wink
The candy blood I bought at Walgreens last Halloween. I thought it was cool and just picked up all they had (like 6 or 7 bags). But don't worry, you can still eat it!! It had an expiration date, which I don't know if it even applies, but it wasn't until 2011.

Here's some more pics for the items I sent out.
Everything. *I guess the pic is too big, gets cut off.*

Willow backlit.

Willow reference image for panel.

My 'final' Willow2 design.

Since I decided against vamp/dark witch Willow, I had initially planned on this being my panel design.

Vamp fangs backlit.

Vamp fangs with optional blood drops.

Oz werewolf paw-print backlit.

Mr. Pointy backlit.

Hehe, I had so much fun doing this and can't wait to do my next swap!! Grin
I want to see more Buffy craftiness!!! Grin More packages, more!!!

Everyone's packages look great so far! I am especially in awe of the GORGEOUS stained glass pieces! I've always been very envious of those who can make something so pretty out of glass.

Anyway, I received my fantastic package from pixieval early sunday morning, and have totally been resting on my laurels/neglecting to take pictures. SO without further ado:

Here's the whole package together:

Wine glasses. There are quotes on one, and the names of the cast and noteworthy villains on the other.

The bronze coffee mugs! I thought these were so appropriate, since they're always drinking coffee at the bronze. Plus, my roommate has like a zillion coffee cups and I had just one (it says new orleans in rainbow colors- i've had it longer than i can remember). Now my coffee mug isn't lonely!

A couple of necklaces. The strings at the bottom have glue on them, so they stick out at crazy angles. I'm putting the spike and buffy one on my rear view mirror!

I didn't get a picture, but they have quotes on the back. Very cool!

Shiny stones, which is really funny because I was drooling over them saturday night in a store.

Really cool buffy magnets! Pixie, are these from some sort of printable magnetic sheets? Way cool.

My faves:

Aaaaannnnnddddddd *drumroll*


I'd mentioned to pixie that I don't use purses, but like to have a ton of bags to carry my books to class in and this is PERFECT!!! Unfortunately the liner made it a bit too small for my binder, so I'm about to remove it. Its just way too cool to not use!

Check out this awesome embroidery. I really can't get over this. And photobucket won't rotate it. It says it did on the site, but the link isn't flipped. Oh well, turn your head sideways and thank me for giving you exercise!

Feeble attempt at an action shot

Better look at the liner. Didn't realize it was fuzzy until just now... Whoops! Cute little peeping eyes. So adorable!

Thanks SO MUCH Pixieval for being such an awesome partner/organizer. I've had so much fun crafting and receiving for this swap!

Incredible embroidery!  I'm also loving the Bronze Mugs.

So cool!!! I love all the magnets...and now I want a The Bronze mug  Tongue

Devilxkat - thanx for the backlit pics - I couldn't get mine to look good in a pic that way - it really shows them off nicely!

The Bronze mugs are great. And the lining fabric in the tote bag is adorable, such a shame you have to take it out.
