i am so glad you liked everything, this was the first swap i've done with the points system. and i found that it is hard to stay within those numbers. i got a little carried away wth the polymer clay jewelery but i'm sure you don't mind. i am still waiting for my package (whenever i hear the mailman i run to the door)  lol.  i love everything i have seen in the gallery, this was a great swap.
i amgoing to post some close up of the stuff i sent.

this is the octopus pendant, the sea creature bracelet, and the sea horse magnets.

I am so glad you liked it pilarfarmer...
From your questionnaire I was pretty sure I had to incorporate mermaids into your package... ;-)
The back of the wall hanging is a ceiling tile that was painted.
The mermaid image and lottery magnets are from an actual game set.
I like the mirrors cause they reminded me of bubbles!!!
The soap was interesting to make.. you have to get the right ratio of sea salt to soap or it won't stick!!!
Glue seashells to one another is harder to do then you would think... they like to slide...
After I got my partner's questionnaire I kept seeing mermaids everywhere...
and well I like octopus so she got some of those too.
I had so much doing this swap!
I so love the fun jewelry she made me... whenever I go to corporate I have to dress so conservatively... now I have some fun statement jewelry to wear!  Grin

At long last, pics!

I got my package from Tracey87!  Full of awesome stuff, it was!


A headband, all done in shells and pearls!  I've already worn it to work - it's a little heavy, but it stays on really well.  I feel like a friggin mermaid wearing it - it is fantastic!




A trio of embroidered cards!  They have envelopes with them, but I don't know that I like anyone enough to actually mail them!  So pretty, and she threw in a peacock because she noted on my pinterest that I love them.


An altered tin, with a mermaid, a fishy, and an oyster on it.  This is amazing - I've never done an altered tin, and they astonish me.  It's so detailed, with shells all around the sides.  And inside!


A passel of Little Mermaid stickers - which I need to start sticking on EVERY. THING. I. OWN.  And!


Bottle-cap magnets with little critters in the resin!  These are not in my fridge yet because I'm living with a fridge not my own.  As soon as I have my own house with my own fridge?  Octopus with a bow all over the place, my friends.

Great, great stuff.  I also forgot (because I am a dingus) to take a pic of the little toy octopus she tossed in.  It is super cute!
