I received my package from Superhooker today. She made me a set of elemental art dolls. She sewed each one and then painted them. The fire one even has a bit of sparkle to her.


I love them! I love how each one is unique and has their own personalities! And the yarns used for their hair is so soft! Thanks so much Superhooker! I can't wait to find a special place to display them  Cheesy

I received my lovely package from moniqueramsey today!! It's amazing how much I had to fight temptation not to rip open the envelope immediately upon seeing it and dutifully get my camera.


First off are two bottle pendants for earth. They are filled with red and white New Mexico sand. I have some ideas for them already... Wink (sorry for the bad pic- munchkin was trying to 'help' take pictures)


Next is a set of wing earrings for air. I'm wearing them as we speak! (again, sorry for the bad pic)


Then was a gorgeous pouch for fire. She hand painted it and I stand in awe of her artistry.


But wait! Flip it over and the other side has another beautiful painted picture for water!


The pouch is going to be holding my zills for belly dancing.

Thank you so much for a great package, Monique!!!

I recieved the most fabulous package from selkie a few days ago!
i forgot to rotate my pictures before putting them on craftster, but i think you get the idea.
first a dragon fly necklace for air. (it will totally get worn!  i just didn't want a mass of jewelry selkie;)

for water, a jar of rocks, shells, and water.  going on my shelf of other knickknacks from friends & other swaps.

earth, matchbox shrine w/ rocks & petrified wood.  lined with sand! the other side of the cover has birds.  also going on the shelf.

i saved my favorite for last! fingerless gloves inspired by my wist for fire! i don't own a lot of warm colored clothes but i love the idea of having a pop of fire sticking out from my jackets.  and these are perfect for one of my classes  that is like a refrigerator. 


thank you thank you thank you!  i love everything!

I'm so happy to hear that you liked everything... I had the usual swapper's anxiety about everything! I was planning on making the gloves all orange, but was a couple of rows short, I figured the red would go well!
The water is from the Atlantic Ocean - captured by Assategue Island - as are the rocks, shells and driftwood!
I'm also happy to hear that the no jewelry was against a wave of jewelry!!!
I made pretty much everything while I was at Assateague on vacation. When I was packing it, I was worrying that I hadn't made enough...

ENJOY!!!

I received my package from abbeeroad! It actually got here a few days ago and I wasn't here. So finally I got to unwrap my presents and show them off!
She is so clever and made me 4 mini fabric art pictures that are interchangeable on a comfy jersey knit pillow!


Thank you abbeeroad! These are going on the wall in my living room!

I love the arm warmers and that jar with the water and stones in it is very clever!  And so cool that the materials were gathered from the sea!  Great package!

Thanks all! Katara I am so glad you love them. They turned out just as I had pictured them and the art nouveau style worked so well with them.

Abbeeroad: I've never actually sat down and watched a full episode, but caught glimpses of it when my son decides to watch it. It's cute!

lol..yes, I in love with a kid's show  Tongue  It seems cartoons are a vice of mine.  It started with Sailor Moon, then Reboot (anyone?) and now Avatar...lol.  I'm glad your son enjoys it, kmichelle!  It's got some great spiritual nuances and concepts in it -- good messages for any age.  And the symbols work perfect in your paintings!

In other news....

I received from JessySihk today!!!  Her work just amazes me...so professional.

Here's a group shot:



A stamp (secretly coveted!!) for Earth, and 3 interchangeable pendants - water landscape, swirls for air, and a lotus (LOVE!!) for fire.

Here are a couple close ups:

Water and the necklace:


The Stamp!!  It works perfect!!


Thanks so much, Jessy!!!  I love it all!!   Grin

Yay!  I found my camera charger!  So, here are the items miss riss sent to me!









The cards are Japanese-themed and what you may not be able to see is that the images are embroidered.  How cool is that?!??

Thanks miss riss!!
