I have received my wonderful package!

little green dragonfly did good!

first I open the box and there is a piece of awesomely colored lepidolite sitting on top, and I love lepidolite - it is one of those things that help you be a good person as you can not contemplate doing bad things when you handle it...

it was strange that it was on top since all the rest of the items were carefully wrapped with the labels inside of tissue or bags - and it was just sitting up there right under the bubble wrap

there was this really cool tea towel that had all sorts of Aussie sayings on it that made me giggle, and chocolate that made me very happy  Grin

then there were all sorts of tiny little bundles in there full of intriguing things, here is a group shot:



I don't know that I can break them down into elements, LOL! but she did manage to send me an overabundance of fire items as I did tell her I needed more fire in my life, LOL!  Roll Eyes


this lovely hand made mask - which I will use as decoration, and some sterling earrings with Australian fire agate beads which were perfectly matched, plus hypo allergenic candles, which it was so sweet of her to think of my allergies! thank you!

for earth:
assorted clay beads that I expect she made herself - they are so cute!


for spiritual contemplation and centering:
a pair of cups that coincidently match the larger cups that I already have - I keep them for special occassions and now I have a set  Grin


there was an assortment of stones found in Australian on a little identification card - I didn't get a seperate photo of those but they are in the group pic

but I think that these were my fav items! which happened to all get grouped together

water was represented by a tiny little seahorse that is real
an assortment of stones all of which I really like - the lepidolite, an ocean jasper, a poppy jasper and a "shell fossil jasper" which I think is turritella fossil, though I might be wrong
a tiny bottle of assorted stones and little clay leaves with glittery stuff in there which I didn't open but looks like maybe a chakra set that has all the elements represented
and what I loved most of all is the delicate tiny little dragons to represent each and every element! they are adorable!

close up of the dragons on my desk: blue for water, golden beige for air, green for earth, red for fire, and black and white for spirit

they all have a symbol on their chest - there is a delicate little heart on the spirit one!

some of the other items made their way onto the top of my desk with some of my most loved treasures as well


thank you so much little green dragonfly - you made me so happy and I feel like I didn't give you near enough!

no worries

You sent me so many lovely items - I was hoping what i have sent is able to live up to your awesome items Tongue

I matched the mini cups to the large ones you already had!

I am so glad the tiny seahorse made it through -un-removed and un-broken Smiley

Wow, that's a great package, so many nice gemstones.  And of course, the dragons are awesome - so cute!

YAY! I received from Pheonix reign today.  All of it is so very cool.

Here's the whole thing, after I unwrapped it from the coordinating elemental colored tissue paper.

The canvas bag has the tree of life stenciled on it. Here's a close up of the great work she did.

Each bracelet came in it's own element colored drawstring bag. I haven't taken them off yet. They are so cool!  the letters say: Air my breath, earth my body, water my blood, fire my spirit.  And the gemstones are anythest, adventurine, soladite and red jasper respectively.

And I also got gold and silver candles, with glitter!

Air my breath, earth my body, water my blood, fire my spirit. 

There is a song called "elemental" by Opus III and that is pretty much the lyrics.  Close anyways, I haven't heard it in years (time to find if I still have it, otherwise I'll have to buy it again).

I love the tree of life bag.

Of course I love all the rocks RondaS received.

I sew, paint unfinished wood, sketch, make jewelry, crochet a bit, loom knit, and sew. Pretty much if I can get my hands on it to learn, then I will know it. Maybe not perfectly, but enough for a hobby.

great package! The stencil on the bag is wonderfully done, and I so love that saying!

THANK YOU so much for angeling phnxreign99!!

and this means that this swap has reached it's conclusion so I will be moving the discussion thread to the archives

I am thinking to do a second round in the summer sometime - maybe June or July - if there is enough interest!
