NP, glad you liked it all.  What doesn't fit you right?

There were chakra necklaces, a maiden. mother and crone prayer beads and a pendulum, I don't remember if I labelled them.

Sorry everyone, I was away for Reiki this weekend...

I would have never thought you'd pump so much out in such little time monnie!  I bet the package smelled really good from the woodburning!

Are those cold process soaps?

Crafting is my therapy...I spent a whole day sewing

I really enjoy woodburning!

They are cold process soaps indeed!

I've always wanted to learn soap making, not the melt and pour but "real" soap but I don't want to use animal stuff to do it.  Any tips or books I should check out and a few recipes that I've found for CP says to use a stick blender for trace, would a hand mixer work?

You can get all vegetable shortening, for experimenting, it is cheap, google crisco shortening recipe, and then just use all vegetable type.  I find a hand mixer doesn't do the same thing, but I got my stick blender for $8 at walmart

Today my sister Ciara would be 22.  My mom and I went and got memorial tattoos and when I got home there was this giant box waiting for me. My wonderful partner had it packed by professionals! So on to the photos (in my excitement I didn't take pictures of the nice packaging)

I love this picture!  I can't wait to hang it up in out new house.


This box is amazing! I was full of great things.  Some healing stones, a Buddha bead, a hand carved spiral stamp and a plastic ear of corn.  (side story: When my sister Ciara was younger, she had one of those little kitchens and mom had bought her lots of plastic food.  My moms neighbors had tons of goats.  Ciara had fed all her plastic food to the goats. The corn brought back so many memories)






A wallet or card carrier. I love the colors!


Thank you so much! This is one of the best swaps ever! Did you get yours, I hope you like it all.

I got my package too!!!!!!

I love, love, love it.  Smiley!

First of all, I got some amazing energy rocks.


Action shot!


I also got a yoga mat holder! 


I love the fabric....

Speaking of fabric, Rosie gave me two yards of fabric in the styles that I LOVE.

I think I am going to make some pillows to throw on my couch... Or maybe a quilt... Oh the possibilities!

And button art:


And some of the cutest little shoes for my daughter (due on Sept 2)


And an incense holder:


And some awesome beads to add to my collection!  (I think I screamed when I saw them) Did you know that I collect beads?


And some wonderful soap.  Did you make this?  I can't wait to use it!


And my ABSOLUTE favorite!  A handmade journal cover!  (and when I say handmade, I mean she stitched every single stitch by HAND - and there are a LOT of stitches!).  This literally brought tears to my eyes!


Not only is the cover hand made, she decorated the pages inside with inspirational quotes.  Here is one of my favorites:


And when I am done with those pages, I can easily insert another journal.  Genius!

She also got some extras for my son:
Markers
and Maracas
(he loves them as you can see)

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you Rosie!  You were an awesome partner!!!!!

I had no idea that you collected beads.  Cheesy  The fabric was given to us girls from my grandparents trip to Hawaii (a better souvenir than a t-shirt).  The soap is handmade but not from scratch, I made it with a m&p kit but we love it. I didn't over decorate the journal cover so you can add little trinkets as you fill it. The yoga bag was super easy to make and I'm glad you like the fabric too.  This was a great swap, Thanks dreadlocklove for hosting!  Grin  <3

Awesome stamp.  Are they time consuming to make?  I'd like to try carving out some Reiki symbols.  What are the names of the stones?

I'm also loving the journal cover.  Very nice. 

You've both received positive feedback.  Thanks so much for crafting.

The ones that I sent are river stones that I wrote on.  The ones she sent are, tigers eye, quartz, blue topaz(little jar),agate and one that I know but I can't think of the name, it helps promote healing, green and orangie pink. *after a google search it's unakite*

I am just now reading these responses!  Sorry. 

The stamping is easy (and soooo calming).  I found some Youtube videos that helped a lot. 

Basically, I drew the symbol on a sticky note and colored it in with pencil.  Then I put the colored part on the stamp and rubbed the pencil markings on the stamp.  Then carve the non- colored part out with carving tools.

Here are the carving tools I use: http://www.amazon.com/Speedball-Linoleum-Cutter-Assortment-1/dp/B0017D8W5E/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1310475269&sr=8-2

I bought them from SAM FLAX.

Oh and that journal cover?  I am still swooning over it!  All my crafty friends are jealous Wink.

The teas and oils are all personal blends that I created. I'm a certified herbalist and my tea recipes came from that knowledge. They are mainly for easing pain and relaxation. The oils are chakra blends, to help stimulate and open the chakras.

Thanks for answering that, my head was pounding yesterday and my mind was not working so well.

I am so excited to play with the Chakra oils...
