Great packages in this gallery! I love that little cabinet you received Dragonflower!

Mingus107 asked me if I'd be interested in personal swap at the beginning of the summer, and after some chatting, we decided to make each other shrines.  The shrine she made me arrived today, and I love it so much!!! As soon as I took it out of the box, my three-year-old exclaimed "Oh, it's so beautiful!!" (and we all know that kids are tough critics!!)


Everything is reclaimed/upcycled- I love all the jewelry bits!! The little frames are to put pictures of deceased loved ones in. I'm planning to put both of my grandmother's photos in, just need to find some old ones next time I visit my parents. (I'll have to update when I get them in there).



Thank you so much Mingus107!!! I had a blast swapping with you. I hope you like what I made you!

I swapped with Craftsunderground and she made me the most awesome cable knit bag that I had coveted for like 2 years!! Feast your eyes on this beauty...



Bad shot of the awesome lining fabric:


Awful attempt at an action shot of myself:


And she also included some neat earrings too:


It's even more awesome than I had hoped for. You know when you really want something and then you get it and it's even BETTER than you thought it would be? Yeah, that's this. Thank you so much, Craftsunderground!!

That La Santissima Muerte shrine is beautiful! I hope you will show it to us again with your grandparents photos in it. What are you going to keep in the drawer?

I did a swap with indigo_roses. I sent her beads that I cleaned out of my collection. She sent me crochet Halloween ornaments.





There is also a bat, but in every picture it looked like a blob of no description.

I can't say what she'd want to trade someone else, but I can tell you I made a "Summer Tree" for her in exchange. This is dark green aventurine gemstone set in a brown wire circle and with copper wire trunk and branches.


(click for larger)

The aventurine has a high mica content giving it an amazing inner sparkle and beautifully, rich, emerald green color. This is a larger Tree, coming in around 1.75" in diameter.

Sorry, I really don't know. I had a finished item for sale on my wist as the inspiration. You might try pm'ing Craftsunderground to see where she got the pattern from.

I did a presonal swap with Bobomom. I had some hello kitty items to swap and she made me this cool stenciled t-shirt (please forgive the dodgy in the mirror shot!)


I love it, I don't own a shirt in this colour (which is surprising since my fav colour is purple) and I love the silver stencilling on it too, which are cherry/sakura blossoms.

She also sent some cute cupcake cases for my DD who love to make cakes or use them for crafting. Thank you so much, I hope your package arrives soon Bobomom, I think I sent it about 4 or 5 days after you (including a weekend) so hopefully it is not to far away!

Thanks for swapping.
