Oops! Thanks everyone for keeping an eye on it. I just realized I'd forgotten to update my own status too!

There are still several people who have received but not posted photos here in the gallery. Can you do so very soon, please? We're all eager to see!

Okay, I recieved my awesomeness from Quasior today! I hope US customs enjoyed some of the chocolate that they undoubtably took. Obviously canvas, paint, paperclay, and plastic are a possible threat to our security. Ugh. Anywaaay, here is what I recieved today....

this was all that was holding the box closed

This is a group shot of all of the goodies. Smiley I LOVEthe painting, her headpiece, the bunny, and the flower at the bottom are added to the canvas. the dugong that her son made my son is great and he loves it. Smiley A candle with a spell (I bet customs loved that:)a totally cute yarn wrapped egg. Yummy Chocolate, a bit of homemade sunshine, a great twosided bunny.


the Awesome Dugong

I wish I had a better pic of this, it is amazing!


Super cool felt bunny

Thank you soooo much Quasior! Aengus and I both loved the package.  hopefully you will get yours in the next day or so.

Okay you two, you have to tell us the story of the dugong. Do you even have dugongs on your side of the planet, Quasior? Your son is right, SSW, he is awesome.

It's sad that your package had to be opened and fondled by US Customs. I wonder how many days that added to the delivery time. But at least it made it through in spite of the inadequate repacking. Really it's a wonder it doesn't happen more often.

Quasior, do you have a better picture of that painting? It looks really interesting.

As for the dugong, Quasior noticed that we both have 10 yr old boysand brought up the idea of the boys swapping as well. Dante and Aengus thought it would be cool so they did. My loves marine life. when I told him my partner was in Australia I got a lecture on reef sharks, great whites, and the injustice of the fact dugongs are not protected the way manatees are here. I had to explain about the number of dugongs there compaired to manatees here. I mentioned it to Quasior, and that is what her son made. Smiley it already has it's own space on my son's desk, right next to his anatomicaly correct (mostly) Great White shark model.

Naughty Naughty Customs!  There was a WHOLE bag of chocolate eggs in there!  That looks like less than half what I sent  Angry  But I am really really happy all the other bits arrived unbroken, I was worried about that!  Did they also remove the air pocket thingies?  The flowers are scented too, hopefully not too much glue overpowering the scent!  I'll post some piccies so it's a bit clearer.

godess Ostara receiving gifts and the bunny who won her favour

wool (sheepies important of course to spring) and the egg/egg white inside - plus eggs

close up of the god/goddess yolk/egg white symbolic of natural balance it was the sun god on one side and pentagram on the other

galaxy egg (meant to be universe and stars etc - was very faint)

balance bunny one side (and fertility of course)

and a fertile woman on the other.

I'm glad you liked it Sugarsandwitch!  I had a great time putting it together~  Cheesy

Dante is also quite crazy about sea life too, so Aengus made a wonderful partner for him!  They were so keen on sea life we swapped non-Ostara related items because it made sense.   Dante makes some rather beautiful things, and I was so proud to share it with you and Aengus, Steph!  He also makes inchies for me - when I send inchies in the inchie swaps he does too, and the inchie-ists love his work.  He can't wait to see what comes for him in your package to us Steph!  Wink  

@ Wulf: yes we have Dugongs in the warmer parts of Australia, but we live in the cooler parts.  We used to live up north a while back, we had the Great Barrier Reef just north of where we lived (in Brisbane).  We have fantastic sea life around those parts, and while it's not so many down here, we still get dolphins, whales in summer and seals/fur seals in winter, and great fishing.  We do have sea dragons, hand fish, and other odd little darlings in our waters (and poisonous too!  You aren't safe land or sea here - all of our snakes are deadly and spiders too - and blue ringed octopus).  We live with the widdle Tassie Devils.  Unfortunately our little devils have a facial tumour disease which is highly contagious and it is 100% fatal.  We're not so kind to our beautiful unique animals or our beautiful natural heritage, wish we were - it's a constant battle of greenies like us and logging companies!  We used to have forests filled with wood that doesn't rot - huon pine.  It was so well sought after that its endangered too.  Only a few people are licensed to collect huon pine that has fallen now so at least thats protected.  My grandfather was a traditional wood turner.

I think it is totally cool that the kids exchanged as well. I think someone should have a tiny swap where one crafted thing goes to the kids and one to the adults and make it optional is the kids do the crafting.  Wink

Quasior, I stupidly confused dugongs and manatees when I said I was surprised you had them in Australia. They're both lovely creatures. And I just saw a picture of a blue-ringed octopus for the first time yesterday as a matter of fact; I didn't know they were poisonous. Beautiful!

Are there ever kids' swaps on Craftster? It's a great idea but I don't remember ever seeing one.

And thanks for posting the photo of the Ostara picture - it's quite brilliant!
