I received my package today!  I was so excited to get it open and I can't believe what Liralen made for me...she really went above and beyond.



All of the goodies from the swap - all made by my partner, Liralen! 



An amazingly beautiful Book of Shadows, covered with some killer el dia de los muertos fabric. She really got me for this project - it's perfect!



Some really great bookmarks, two out of hemp and one knitted. Also, she sent me some strips of paper for these wish-stars (see below).



Detail of the bookmarks - such pretty beads.



She sent me this really cool instructional booklet on making wish-stars, along with the strips of paper pictured up near the bookmarks. So awesome!

Thank you to Liralen for being my awesome partner and to Saturn for organizing the swap - it was a blast!  I can't wait to do it again.

Everyone's got such awesome stuff for this swap.  I'm excited for the next round.  Maybe this weekend I'll have some time to put all this to use.

I received today!!  polkadotts did an amazing job!  I've been so spoiled... I wish I could've done more for her... she went above and beyond!  Anyway... the pictures!!

Here's a group photo:


The book!  It's beautiful!


She included some of her favorite recipes (a kitchen witch I am not!) And some lovely pages:


Then, 4 individual booklets for Earth, Fire, Water and Air


Then lots of extras!!  Some lovely nail polish, a butterfly bead, an amethyst, citrine and, I believe, a large lapis lazuli stone. Also a tiny desk and books that i may be able to use in future swaps!! Some cool telepathic magnets, lol.  Bridget,  framed, and some handmade bath soak (which I used tonight and it was AMAZING!!)


And finally, I have a small "altar" (shelf) in my craft room where i like to keep magical things that make me happy: a cauldron, besom, phoenix and incense burner and I thought my homegirl Bridget would fit perfectly there Smiley


Thanks again polkadotts!! It's been so much fun crafting for you!!

Finally I was able to figure out how to download the pics from my phone with the help of my daughter  Wink

I received from Lilak Tygress a beautiful decoupaged embellished Ankh BOS, a pink (only the prettiest color in the world) Ankh bookmark, a feather quill pin, a batch of lavender from her personal garden, and rose quartz.





Thank you so much for a wonder swap
