Better late than never.  I finally had a moment to post pics of the wonderful BoS that ShyLitleGoddess sent me.  I had all kinds of goodies in there like hand made soap, a cute Halloween card, incense, tea lights, a book mark, loose pages from a Chinese workbook to use as I see fit, star shaped pages with rings to have a mini star shaped BoS, and a fantastic book on crafty with recycled/upcycled objects.  Can't wait to try those. 
Of course, her faboo Bos has hand embroidered tree with embellished leaves, owls and even a key.  She even gave me extra screws for when I add pages and she included pages of moon phases, runes and their meanings as well as tarot and the meanings of each cards!  Fantastic! 




and last but not least the super awesome BoS:

Thanks again for being a fantastic swap partner!

Here is the package I sent to icekibby, minus the wand that I forgot to take pictures of--I'm posting for her since she's having technical difficulties.





Two pages of Batard-hand Calligraphy, front and back, for her BOS. One is on The Charge of the Goddess and the other is on Chakras. I left a margin so they can be sewn into the BOS she plans to make one day. For now they can be added to her binder with the help of clear plastic page protectors.



A pelican-feather quill and homemade lamp-black ink sealed with red wax in a corked glass bottle. I also included some extra parchment.



A rosewood box--I did not make this.

I also sent a chakra wand but did not take pics. Sad

But anyway, it was a fun package to put together! I've never done that much calligraphy before, lol.

And finally, what she made for me:



This Gorgeous Bastet paper dolly, yes--that's a basket of kittens!! This is getting framed!



A gorgeous portrait of the Lord and Lady for my BOS, this is perfect!!



Bookmarks, the Horned God and Me in my gypsy troop garb!! I love them!



mini Lord and Lady it says "Lord and Lady guide the homeward steps of parting friends." Ironic since a friend of mine is moving to NC.



Book thong! also makes a good cat teaser in between turning pages, lol! My cat loves tassels. The charm is a dragonfly goddess!!



Stamps for my pages and a swarovski crystal star from Phrixy! I was going to use it as a cell-phone charm, but realized that my BOS actually has loops on the side, so it will be a decoration for my book Smiley



AWESOME hand-made incense. I've simply had these packages sitting on my kitchen shelf and my house has smelled lovely ever since--even without opening them or burning them! Thank you so much!

I feel totally spoiled with all of the gorgeous artwork and crafts! Thank you so much!!

I'm so glad you like everything!

Thanks for posting the photos for me. I really love everything you've sent, and I can't wait to use the quill. I used to do a lot of dipped pen and ink drawings, and I may just poke at it again.  Grin The box is more gorgeous than the photo can show. It's all carved on top and smells really good inside. The calligraphy pages are so painstakingly beautiful too! The little chakra wand is so pretty. Did you make the lampblack ink yourself? I was thinking of getting some dragonsblood ink from the shop for you but I was afraid of it breaking en route since everything else was really flat.

I've been working on some pages that I'll be posting to my blog for free download if people are interested. I'll post links when my tech nonsense is worked out. I'm scared to scan anything and make more images on my computer at this point. Oy!
