Here's my loot!
(warning, tons of pictures  Wink )

Here's the amazing tribal belt that MommytheMaid plucked right off my wists and made even better than the one on there Smiley

She also made that gorgeous hip wrap/veil

and this head piece (I LOVE stuff for my dreads  Grin )


and now bear with me as I model the fab costume I threw together with my new dance accessories







And that very same day that I got the belly dance package, I received the package from one of my other swaps, the fill a box supply swap. Inside the box I found this fuzzy red yarn that matched the color in the belt PERFECTLY so I thought "Tassels!" and set to work  Grin


This was another fun skirt combo I came up with featuring my super awesome new belt. I played with draping the hip wrap and I LOVED how it looked.

And then, I was looking at the hip wrap and I thought, like i always do with everything eventually, "I bet this would look great in my dreads!"


and indeed it did  Grin

Thank you so much MommytheMaid! I loved it all and I hope you enjoy your goodies as well!

Your costume looks great! I am so glad you liked everything and the hip drape has a ton of uses.  Thank you so much for action pictures.  I love knowing that people like and use the things I send them.  I had so much fun making this package Cheesy

I got my package last night!!!  I LOVE it!!!!  

This box is BEAUTIFUL!


and inside she wrapped up some little gifts for my girls:

They are beautiful!  I love the little turtle beads.

and here is a cute little book she sent for my son

and some incense.  He LOVES this book!!

She handmade this beautiful belly dance girl for me:



there is so much detail put into her.  I love it.  She now sits in my craft room to be admired.

and hubby's attempts to get pics of me in my brand new hip scarf! He cut off my head and giggled the whole time that he was taking pics of my butt...he is stuck in the 3rd grade I think  Roll Eyes lol




Thank you so much Mad Gypsy!!

Almost forgot!  Look at the beautiful name tags she made for the gifts and the artwork on the letter Cheesy


She also sent me a belly dance music CD.  So excited to try it out with  my hip scarf.

MommyTheMaid and MadGypsy, your feedback has been left!  Smiley Thanks for participating in this swap and being awesome!  Grin Grin Grin


Just a thought, if I organized this swap again soon, (mid February) would you ladies participate? I thought of making it a "Gypsy Swap" though and maybe we could pull more interest from a crowd that doesn't necessarily just belly dance, but likes the styles, folklore, culture, and maybe fortune telling aspect of it? It would work out well for us Tribal Fusion/ATS style dancers too. What do you think?
