I get to start off the gallery! I received my wonderful package from Spidersweb today. She made some beautiful pieces. My ancient culture was the Celts.

First off is a book I've actually never heard of (which is impressive) and a pretty hand painted pouch that held my smaller items



Inside was a beautiful barrette, two awesome sets of earrings and a lovely necklace. The necklace has 9 drops for the 9 maidens whose breath fueled Carridwen's cauldron of inspiration. The earrings match the necklace. I put them on almost as soon as I took the pictures



Here's a close up of the decoupage barrette



Now for the gorgeous large piece. I'm a follower of Arianrhod, so she made me a moon-themed wall hanging! I'm jealous of anyone who can do needlework since it's one of the few crafts that I can't. Ready for awesomeness?



Here's a close up so you can see some of the wonderfully done stitches and painting



Thanks for being an amazing partner, Spidersweb!!!

I'm so glad you enjoyed your package!  I have been out of town (still am -  Grin), but I am looking forward to seeing everything that people have made when I get back!

My package from Squire_inaria came over the weekend, but I was out of town, so my neighbor took it for me.  She only let me know that today.  (I love my neighbor!)

I was BLOWN AWAY by what was inside!

I'm sorry that's a bit blurry-- my kitty was ALL about the wrapping paper and box, and was in the way.
From top left: a poppet of Cernunnos, the card on top of celtic/prehistoric symbol coasters, ogham rune 'stones' and a pretty bag, a bracelet, and a necklace.

I am spoiled!  Do you see the poppet, do you?!?!?!  This is the first poppet I have ever gotten and holy frijoles!  After I had played with him for a bit (and tried to decide if it's weird if I think he's rather MRAWR for a poppet), I put him on display with the SCA er, Princess of Ireland Barbie that a friend gave me a few years back.

I think he likes it there.

Then I put my necklace on.  Thank you-- it is the perfect length, which is always difficult for me to find.  (I have a big neck and the standard necklace size is too small.)  I wore it around for all my errand-running today!
