I'm posting here for my partner. She sent me a lovely message about the package I'd sent:

"I am in love with the painting. It looks so authentic! And I love the jewel and feather touch 
Thank you so much for everything. I have the little heart keychain on my purse. I love hearts, and I collect key chains(at least I did, had to stop years ago )
I'm going to be wearing the bracelet and ring to my medieval fair on a sunny-no-rain-day.
Again thank you so much"

And here a photos I took before sending out:

The painting detail:


A resin glitter keyring with a crown:

An adjustable Queen Elizabeth ring:

And a charm bracelet... I love this so much I made one for myself!

Now I admit I didn't craft the lovely portrait charms. I bought them from 'maralot' on etsy.
Link: http://www.etsy.com/shop/marlaot?ref=pr_shop_more They are such lovely charms ...although hard to photograph without the glare. LOL!  I love my bracelet & am glad my partner loves hers as well.  Wink

It's a fine line between 'hobby' & 'mental illness

Wow, you're a really talented painter, I Sew Cute! Henry has real character, and the feather is a lovely touch that keeps it from being so serious. And the charm bracelet is a lovely creation.

I'm so flattered by your comments everyone! It really has made my day to read them. I'm so sick & spent half of Saturday in the ER with my girlie who also has a bug...so it's really nice to come back online & see all the love. I was so paranoid that the painting wasn't going to turn out as well as it did.  Smiley

Thank you so much!

I received today! Check out the awesome stuff I got from Wulf!!!

First off the cool note card he happened to find a few weeks ago!


A hand made book of recipies made for the queen!


Inside of the cookbook.

Isn't it cool?!

A portrait that reminded him of my granddaughter.

Isn't it neat? It's on a beautiful blue velvet ribbon so I can wear it 'round my neck.

I believe this is a hand-carved confit box for my treats. Very cool!

Inside:


And these yummy pastilles. I have had them before as well as these rose flavored ones. They are soo awesome! I used to get them when I was a kid.


And finally, my cat Pixie (where I came up with my screen name) checking it all out and giving her approval! lol


Thank you so much Wulf I love it all!

What a delightful swap package! The card is too funny!

I'd love to see a closer detail of the beautiful script in the book! Is it calligraphy? What are some of the recipes for? In my research I had come across a list of dishes from the Tudor period & found them interesting.

The child portrait pendant appeals so much to the mom in me. My DD is a redhead too!  Wink

The little trinket box is so cute!
I love little details folks work into their projects such as decorating the inside as well.

Do those candies taste anything like flowers? I remember having violet gum as a child, but can't even remember exactly what it tasted like. Candy is always a great bonus!

Awesome stuff Wulf!

I received today!!!! Can you tell how truly excited I was???
Here are my wonderful goodies I got from Hgddm.
Firstly, here it all is in the box - I love the cute seal she put on the letter she wrote me Smiley

Awesome Elizabeth cards,stickers and a corset patterns

Embroidered tea towel and jewellery - please excuse the fact the image is upside down! I didn't notice it until after I uploaded it here lol.

A cute cross toy for my kit-kat Bella, a bookmark for my mum, and a cool shadow box. Forgot to do a pic of the inside but the background is King Henry, and pictures of Anne Boleyn in different spots throughout. I have to charge my phone so if I remember to, I'll take an inside pic later.

Last, but most certainly not least - the CORSET! That's right, she made me a CORSET! I'm so freakin' excited about this! This is the back of it:

Please excuse this terribly action shot - I hadn't been long out of bed when I got my parcel and I was so excited I had to take photos of it straight away. As you can see the corset doesn't quite fit 100% but that can easily be fixed. What you can't see is the cute little flower where that little spot of red down the bottom is - such a nice touch! My brother (who is a lot taller than me) took the photo and the angle kinda makes me look even shorter than my 5ft2 height lol

Thank you again for such
a fantastically awesome parcel, I'm so spoilt!!!

If you say 'plz' because it's shorter than 'please',I'll say 'no' because it's shorter than 'yes'.
