Those beads really do look like luscious little berries! Very pretty. And of course the altar cloth is magnificent. What a great design. But I especially love the cinnamon stick pentacles - I think that's the one idea I'm going to steal. Wink

And don't get too carried away with your Happy Yule just yet - both the astronomical and astrological solstice occur on the 22nd this year, so Yule is at least a day away no matter how you calculate it. (The Sun enters Capricorn at 12:30 am on the 22nd, so the astrological solstice occurs almost exactly at midnight this year.)

That's good to know seeing as my altar is still in it's Samhain garb! Gives me extra time to get it changed!


I feel bad, I sent the bracelet without cutting the strings...oops! I was rushing.

I learned the daisy chain stitch on necklace making and I loved it. Those beads were calling to me...

No I didn't! And I'm so sorry!
My package is awesome, of course! There were so many little special things in it, I'm sure I'm missing a lot of it in the pics.

Okay so..I've hit post instead of preview, my bad! And now the post is so big... I'll double post, if you all don't mind!

I've got so many great things! Lots and lots of ornament, which went into the tree right away, my daughter took care of that! And she was so exited!

Candles (tons), wreath... The children got each a ...okay I forgot the word for that in english... placemat?? with their name on it. Mariann is thrilled because she now recognize her name and she adores the santa pocket.

There was a cute little box with coaster (again, right word?) I had lotion and soap and really good smelling oil.

There was one stocking filled with stones, with a little handbook of their properties with room to make my own notes.

And the huge blue ceramic moon is now on my studio's wall with her sisters. It's starting to look great! Did you paint it or you've found in as is?

There was a skirt for the tree, a santa apron, a fabric to cut out to make a santa plush, a stoking, and a necklace and a pendulum... I've upload that picture... let me find it!

Glad they like them

Yes, coasters

Monnie - wow, as usual Smiley

I love the "cranberries" necklace and bracelet.

Wulf- the cinnamon pentacle are super easy to make and smell great. Just soak some cinn stix in warm water for about 24 hrs. cut into strips and have at. Smiley

Wow, everything looks really great you guys!  What a good swap ^^

I received the most amazing package from Wulf yesterday.  I'll post pictures after I get off work.  He was even sweet enough to include a little something extra for my boyfriend Cheesy 

I have the most ridiculous swap anxiety now.   : Undecided

Well Mandykaye gave me the bestest package, it was all wrapped up lovely and I am keeping the bags for future use!



My favorite thing; an LED candle with cinnamon stick decorations, a pentacle necklace, 2 stones that I love, and 2 zipper pulls for decoration!

Also the nummies-chocolate covered marshmallow peppermint stirring sticks! WOWZA!

Also hot chocolate to dip/stir/melt them in! I am one spoiled girl and I truly can't be happier! I have had a few disappointing non WWP swaps and WWP partners never fail to amaze! We rock!

Thanks so very very much Mandykaye!  Kiss

Oh, here are closeups of the Yule potpourri mix label and the necklace. The beads are all the same color!
