The glass etching really intrigues me also.  It seems like such as simple craft to do (though maybe it's not - I've never really looked into it) but can add a really cool touch.

I'm looking forward to seeing the rest of the packages!

answering 2 questions - I will slice the straws the long way, and just slip them on. I have done this before - they never fall off! I have a light on my airplug that flashes red when i ride.
The uni stamp is homemade, and here is a pic of it on the shirt that was in the wash when 'fro posted.

Time to show off my circus-y goodness from FaerieCyn! I got a great package!



First there's little ringmaster bunny here...



With his little tails! *gigglesatbadpunning*



And even littler ringmaster figurine Cheesy



Awesome fabric covered tophat! Wheee!



Practice poi! Yaaaayfuzzyfabricyaaaay



My own gorgeous little bigtop! I love the way it looks sitting in the grass... it's sitting on my bedside table now, though I think I'll hang it somewhere so the cats don't eat the ribbon.



It even has tiny hanging trapezes inside!



Thank you again FaerieCyn! Great job on your first swap!

Wooooo! I got spoiled by dreadlocklove!! Really, really spoiled. I mean that- you will not believe the amount of work she did for me. See for yourself:

 Here we have an awesome book called Freaks & Fire: The Underground Reinvention of Circus, fingerless gloves to keep my hands warm while I'm practicing with my new crocheted poi (*love!*), and a DVD from www.homeofpoi.com called the Backyard Spinners' Guide to Fire. I suppose that's another way to keep my hands warm. lol.

Dreadlocklove is not only a fantastic partner, she's a crocheting machine!!


This here is a scarf for me to wear while I'm on my stilts. It's 20' feet long!! She's insane. This would have taken me about 3 years to knit. I'll try to remember to get someone to take action shots of it on Wednesday at my regular circus night.

I could not love this package any more than I do. Dreadlocklove, I totally want to swap with you again! You're the best! Now I have massive swap anxiety...

20 feet?! id love to see a action shot of that! i am also quite envious of the crochet poi. i wanted to make some for my partner but it was a fail.

fae im so glad you like and are using everything! i forgot to tell you in the letter, although i hope its obvious, i put bells in the juggling balls:)
