I just got back from a trip and my package from Desired Constellation was waiting for me.  I also just got word that the package I sent was recieved yesterday, as Desired Constellation's camera is down, I will post all the photos. 

Here are the earrings that I sent, the silver pebble earrings are based on the silver pebbles that Hansel scattered and shone in the moonlight to help find their way home in Hansel and Grettle.

 The Red Triangle earrings are inspired by Little Red Riding Hood's hood. 

The white and brass earrings are inspired by the Six Swans, each white bead represents a swan feather.

The last pair, is inspired by the Dancing Princesses, they will dance on the ears.



The following are the items that Desired Constellation sent me based on the following stories.

Rapunzel
  Goose Girl


The Golden Bird

Queen Bee



I love all the items, thank you Desired Constellation.  I am particularly fond of the Diorama.
(I had to modify the post, I hit some key and erased about half of what I was typing.)

Oh, you went on a trip...that must be why i havent heard from you in so long. It wouldve been nice to know you were going on a trip and that you wouldnt be messaging in the thread at all, but i am glad your packages arrived safely. Ill give you both feedback soon...I havent heard from your partner yet saying she received either.

When I got home yesterday evening I found that I had received my package all the way from Australia! Squee! (Australia Post does not fool around...she shipped on Friday!) Anyway...onto the story....




There was a very special little girl who received a wonderful red cape as a present from her grandmother:



Her grandmother must love her very much....look how fancy the cape is!:



"Snow-white and Rose-red, do not be afraid;wait, I will come with you." They knew his voice and waited, and when he came up to them suddenly his bearskin fell off, and there he stood a handsome man, clothed all in gold" I am a King's Son, and I was bewitched by that wicked dwarf."

Handsome Prince:



Bearskin:



(That little hanger the bearskin is on just kills me! Also...the prince can actually wear the bearskin too.)

And they all came in this nice little box:



Last but not least...



TimTams! I've been wanting to try this for ages, but you can not get them stateside at all. I'll be savoring these slowly (and hiding them from the kids).

Thank you so, so much for my package Deliqueena! I love my little dollies so much. They will be getting a prominent place in my home so that I can show them off to everyone. Smiley

I got the most amazing package from Cheeco.  I am in love with everything she sent.  I feel so spoiled!

Catskin (Roughskin/ the princess in disguise) in her coat of 1000 animal skins was sent to stay with me.  On the way she picked up a few goodies.
First - here she is in a dress that sparkles like the stars.


the bag she picked up from the Goose girl:

Which is a lined, zippered pouch with an extra pocket on the back, and was filled with jewelry:

star earrings, a ring that fits perfectly(Catskin & bearskin), a broach (modeled by Catskin), and rose earrings from the sisters Snow white Rose red. 


Thank you so much for all the very cool stuff you made me.  I love it!

Lovely lovely poppet! Cheesy

I have pictures finally of the awesome amazingness that is Subee's package.  Seriously, I am feeling lower than the mud caked on my Converse for not posting sooner.

Firstly, I opened a box to find this:




A circular wooden box with an omg evil queen burned into the top!  Not only is it fabulous and functional (It will house my acrylics!), it also is delightfully campfire scented. Wink  It is BIG, easily 14" across.

Once I opened the box, I found a plethora of delights!

There were two packages containing these magnets:

(omg that is a terrible picture)

Clever clever Subee found German postage stamps with actual fairy tale art on them and reproduced them into magnets.  Crazy business!  Love it!  They're already spread across my fridge.

All those warnings I got to not eat that must have been about this:


The Evil Stepmother's own apple!  Delish!  I shall proudly display it with my stuffed Gene Simmons doll, I think.

Straight from my wist, Subee made me these awesome eyebally fingerless gloves!



Action shot:

She also made me a very cool crocheted eyeball, but my devil-spawn children were amusing themselves by tossing it at me and randomly holding it up against my arm and proclaiming, "I'VE GOT MY EYE ON YOU, MOM!!!!", and I think it may be under the sleeping toddler.  Trust me when I say it is awesome.  It even has red veiny bits.

Lastly and certainly the opposite of leastly, I found this incredibly awesome little purse/tote/bag:



Now.  A confession:  Not a purse person.  Seriously.  I usually just grab my wallet and phone and call it good since I don't have to tote diapers anymore.  NOT TODAY.  Today I happily loaded that bad boy up with my wallet and phone and random lists and sundries and proudly toted it around.  Three people tried to steal it.  The cross stitched illustration on the front makes me utterly giddy.

Subee, you are AWESOME.  Thank you so much for everything, sorry I suck so much, but if you're half as happy with yours as I am with mine, you will be ecstatic.  <3

I am so glad you like everything Cheesy

I can not take all the credit for the stamp magnets. I found the pictures HERE but my husband made the magnets.

I was worried about the box, that was my first try at woodburning. Though I have to say, I love it and plan to do a lot more.

I can't wait to get your crafty treasures, I've seen some of your stuff, and it rocks!!

So happy you like it Smiley

Oh, here is the eyeball:

I got my box from Themuppet today!
She made everything from the story "The Queen Bee" (yay)

The first trial is the pearls in the tree roots - for this she made me a GORGEOUS stain glass mirror


close up of the pearls


next came the bedchamber key - for this I got a truly wonderful chain bookmark


close up the key (terrible picture I know, but this the best of the terrible pictures :/


And last but certainly not least - The Queen herself!
A beautiful pincushion with two bees on her shoulders


close up of her hair, it is really stunning


Thank you so much, Themuppet, I LOVE everything!

Wham! Amazing package received from textilejnkie! Prepared to be jealous!!

First is JAM! It contains the blood from the "girl without hands" from her stumps. Also with the jar, are with beautiful paper with red apples in the corner. They're for the notes exchanged  under the shades of the orchard.


Next! She weaved these HERSELF! Crazy awesome! The pattern represents  Rose red's attempt to find a pure white rose on her bush!


AND THEN! Here's a lovely tote bag, with a embroidered and painted bird from the juniper tree! I absolutely love it and can't wait to show it off to everyone!


And these beautiful earrings and pendant are the gifts from Thrushbeard to his beggar bride. Sadly these photo's don't show the beautiful colour they are. They're a lighter green than what is shown!


Then to top it all off, I get to keep that wonderful apple stamp that graced the papers I got, and it represents basically all the grimms fairy tales. And then included with that is a bird stamp, for the bird in juniper tree!


Thank you Textilejnkie! LOVE EVERYTHING!!!!

My partner , GnomeDrops is having trouble posting photos so I told her I could post the pictures of what I sent her. Her favorite story is Red Riding Hood (mine too!!) so I made her a basket for goodies with a painting of RRH on it and a 10x10 acrylic painting of Red and the wolf. There was some candy too but I did not photograph that  Wink

So sorry it took me a few days to post, work. My wonderful swap angel aisy made me this killer package.

Three fantasic stamps which I am breaking out on my day off: one banner that says handmade, my username, which is also my nickname *awesome* and a puss in boots that will grace many greeting cards this winter!

And this gorgeous plushie of puss in boots that is sitting on my tv


Thanks everyone! Lovely swap.

My apologies for posting photos so late. Aisy sent me an amazing package! So many goodies:

Gorgeous Pillow cover

I meant to iron it first.  Undecided The fabrics are so soft and the colors are perfect for my house! I love the backing fabric, too. It's lime green with white polka dots.

A painted forest picture, also going to look great in my house.  Smiley

I couldn't get a good picture without a glare, but trust me, this is lovely in person!

Possibly my favorite item, a red riding hood doll!

Sorry the photo is sideways. Does Craftster photo hosting allow you to flip photos once uploaded  Huh

Here's a close-up of her sweet face (right side up!):


And finally, a gnomie themed altered altoid tin (super cute, with red ricrac on the sides!) and several hand carved rubber stamps inside!


Again, I'm sorry for the glare.  Embarrassed I have a decent camera, I'm just not very good at using it apparently. Thank you, aisy, for your patience and for all my wonderful stuff! It's all going to look just right in my home. I enjoyed swapping with you!

Ive received my packages from both my partners, and im super happy with what I got. Dontdresslikeapril sent me a scoodie that was crocheted. Its clearly based off of little red cap. I plan on getting a red shirt so i can have something that matches it. I havent taken a picture of me wearing it yet but i do plan to. She also sent me a purse using fabric that has the original drawings from little red cap which i love. (Im a sucker for original illustrations and have bought lots of fabric with old drawings on it)




Rae-mazing sent me a snow white and rose red inspired package with a cuff (using red rose fabric), fabric covered buttons, and a purse (with an apple applique). Ive already been using this purse, since it was the package i received first, and its very strong. (Im not always so nice to my bags lol)




Thank you so much both of you, I hope you get your packages soon from the evil post office lol. I hope you guys as happy with the package i sent as i was with yours.

OH THANK GOD! umm you might want to watch the earrings though, i completely forgot you have an allergy to nickle and im not 100% sure they are nickle free. Im really glad you like it...I sent the same to rea-mazing except i skipped the earrings and did matching clips in a "princess repunzel" style. I just realized there were tracking numbers with them when i resent so I just messaged you the numbers so you could keep track of it. I hope rea-mazing gets hers soon too
