Adding to the already beautiful gallery: I've received from Proxima!

The whole thing was wrapped in beautiful wrapping paper, but I was just too eager to see the things inside, I forgot to take a photo.

Here we have an excellent array of paper goods: some for crafting with myself, some which she crafted for me, a very nice balance!



Then there was a bracelet she crafted for me and a headband she crafted for me which features a brooch which can be taken off and worn separately if I want AND extra beads n' bits in case it ever needs repairing! Now that is thorough! There's also plenty of bits and peices for me to craft into things for myself!



Now you've noticed that silky fabric everything has been photographed on, so here it is:



A cushion cover with a hand painted center which must have taken forever to do because it's so precise and involved!

Also Czech Republic cultural extras which are not pictured but are very much appreciated  Smiley

Thank you Proxima for putting so much effort and thought into this swap!

As promised, the lovely postcards I received this week! I'm so lucky they made it in one piece as we have been having serious Typhoons this week. Expecting another one today... But it's strangely nice out!

The rocket one is from the 1950's! The gates are at St. Augustine in Florida.

And as promised, a teaser pic Smiley I finally found some thrift stores! This is what I bought yesterday, it's being very repurposed so won't look anything like this when it arrives haha

It is a Yukata. Kind of like a kimono but much less formal and for summer. They are mostly warn to festivals. I loved it and had to have it for this swap Smiley I hope you like what it's already halfway turned into Plum Crafty! I'm having so much fun on this swap, but today I have to not craft and actually get my uni work done Sad

I'm really sorry for posting so late T___T

Special_occasion made me a fabulous skirt I can't wait to wear, a pair of earrings and a matching brooch, I aboslutely love the pearls with wine and black fabrics! And she added an extra pair of earrings (which is awesome, since buying clip-ons is really difficult) and a lovely pearl bracelet. Thank you so much, I love everything!

That skirt special_occasion made is very nice! What kind of fabric is it made out of? I love the craft supplies from Proxima. Wow on the hand painted center of that cushion cover!

I know, Proxima did an especially amazing job on that cushion cover, I couldn't believe how detailed it was and yes the craft supplies were such a bonus!

Thanks for complementing the skirt Calabaza, I made the skirt from fabric from a bamboo skirt around the back and sides and attached netting to that from a dress then put fabric from a pleated cotton blend skirt down the center and used remnants of the bamboo skirt to make the band at the top. Thank goodness for my fabric/crafting stash!

I made a 'tutorial' in case you're curious:
