I received from Ethertree and omygosh I could not have had a better swap partner! I absolutely love everything she sent. And now for the photos.
Here's everything as a set.
An origami Totoro with a special note in it for me! Where did you get the origami pattern for it, ethertree? I want to make it myself!
And I squealed when I saw these. Black Sootball with Candy Star Earrings! I wore them right away!
My favorite of all the crafts she sent (and it's hard to choose!), but the Totoro doll. I'm not sure what material it's made from but wood and handpainted? The expression is so perfect! I bow to her painting skills!
And the Totoro has a surprise! It's actually a nesting doll. Take the top half off and there's another Totoro underneath, this time, blue!
But wait... there's more! Here's the white Totoro hiding within the Blue Totoro!
And here they are as a threesome set - so absolutely adorable. I will treasure them and they are going in my crochet studio!
And finally a Bath Token... but wait, it was a wrapper!
So what's underneath the wrapper? It's Oatmeal Soap that smells so fragant and nice!
Finally, the whole set once again. You can also see the Kodama head made from paper pulp (I'm thinking this is similar to papier mache?). When you shake it, it makes a rattling sound too!
I had so much fun making and receiving the items. Thank you so much, ethertree. It was such an honor to be your swapping partner! My first craft swapping experience more than blew me away and now I think I may be addicted to craft swaps!
