My lovely partner Indigo_Roses has received but hasn't been able to post pictures so I'm going to go ahead and post photos of what I sent. Because I ran late with package 2, i ended up sending package 2 and 3 together.



This was my large item, a knit shawl made using handspun yarn by Zombie_Queen.

This was an item inspired by something I saw on her pinterest. It's a crocheted cotton plastic bag holder.

And a matching produce bag

And finally a small cross stitch from her pinterest

I hope you enjoyed this swap as much as I have! Thanks for being a fantastic partner, indigo_roses! <3

Thanks for posting pics, DV! They're better than the ones I just took.

Here's a couple pics of what I sent to DesignVigilante. It's a granny square afghan in black, pink, and white. It turned out a bit bigger than I had originally planned, it fit nicely over my double bed. I didn't get a good pic of it all spread out, but here it is folded up.

I received a great package 3 from queenofmarigold a while ago but it completely slipped my mind to post the pictures. So sorry!

Here's my fabulous package 3

First of all an absolutely gorgeous granny square scarf. I love the style and the colours. Perfect for a scarf addict like me Smiley Now I'm desperately awaiting autumn to be able to wear my new scarf.


A granny square bag, so beautiful!


Look at this cute Totoro felt badge! I so love it!


Earrings and a tree of life pendant in my favourite colours.


And finally some yummy goodies. The kangaroo treats had already gone when I took the picture so that's only the empty bag. They were too yummy to survive Smiley Meanwhile also the FruChocs have gone!

Thanks, Danielle, for a great swap! I really enjoyed it!

I'll swap for postcards, badges, maps or brochures from everywhere in the US! I'm an English teacher and always happy about authentic material for my classroom.

Here are some photos of the amazingly awesome package that I received from my new friend Najaorama  Grin  I was COMPLETELY spoiled!!!  Naja sent me a mini-henna kit in my package 2 and I have fallen completely in love with it!!  I have been henna'ing myself & my family members non-stop ever since Smiley  So!  I was lucky enough to receive a MASSIVE henna kit from her this time around, complete with some personalized instructions & enough 'stuff' to keep me going for ages!!  Yaaay!   Grin Grin

First off, the whole package:

You can see - 2 books full of gorgeous designs (one Afra: North African/Moroccan, the other Masala: traditional Indian), a personalized how-to-prepare- your-stuff book, a doodle book for creating my own designs, a book/box for holding the gear & a gorgeous card with an image called "Passing Down the Traditions" (which shows 3 generations of Navajo women at a loom - gorgeous!!).

Close ups of all 3 books:


And the personalized, written by Naja, how-to book:

This book makes me feel 100% confident that I will be able to mix-up the good stuff and keep on creating gorgeous designs!

The doodle book & card:


And the goodies in the book/box:

(in case you don't know, this is a LOT of henna powder & all of the bags/tubes I will need for a very, very long time  Wink)

Lastly, as a bonus that has nothing to do with the henna kit - some amazingly beautiful vintage broach hair clips:

Because she know that I LOVE pretty hair clips Smiley

THANK YOU Naja~ You've been the best partner & this has been a great swap experience!!  Looking forward to keeping in touch & doing private swaps with you  Cheesy

I'm sorry it's taken me so darn long to post pics. I got Koreenas package in the morning and took it to work where I promptly had the worst day ever. At like 4:40 I looked down and realized I still had a package to open.

I love re-purposing clothes and purple and green are my favorite colors. She made this awesome  apron with crocheted details and a dragonfly (my fav animal).

She also made a cute scarf and I love the card.

But this made me cry. It's tree wall art with words that describe me. The words are all so specific, it must have taken forever to find them.


Thank you for an amazing swap, I really did make a new friend.

That's some amazing tree art! It's great when you have a swap package to brighten up a lousy day. Smiley
