Oh my goodness ... so many wonderful things in the gallery!  As usual, of course  Grin 

My package from LA Fairy was waiting for me when I got home from vacation (Hawaii was absolutely awesome, BTW  Cool )  Here's all my Ostara goodness ...

First up - a small wooden frame ... I'm just waiting for a new picture of the grandkids in their Easter clothes to put in there.  And two beautiful painted/decoupaged eggs (no way to get a picture of them all the way around).  So pretty!!

An Ostara watercolor ... love the detail in the rabbit and stuff ...

And finally, a wonderful altar cloth.  Love the flowered material it's made of, and although it was made for Ostara (which I didn't get to use it for), for me it will be perfect for Beltane, because the bright colors remind me of that spring holiday  Cheesy

Thanks so much, Lexi!  Nice to have something waiting when I got home (leaving Hawaii is not easy!)

Got this piece of shrinky dink ... had it for 25 years now.  It's moved to five states and one European country ... and I just know, someday ... SOMEDAY ... I WILL use it!

Wow another great swap! I love all the packages! Can't wait for the next round again lol!

 I had a wooden animal set as a kid just like the set Wulf sent! I had forgotten all about it until the picture sparked my memory! Smiley

I love your hare-gazing moon painting, MandyKaye! And do you remember where your tiny animal set was made? I seem to think this one was from Czechoslovakia, but I could be mis-remembering.

Wonderful stuff in this gallery!

I love the amazing paintings!  You gals are so talented!  I have a set of watercolours that I have been meaning to try, but always get so nervous  Undecided 

The hoops are also very pretty!  Love the applique for the lunar one, so cool. 

I also eagerly waiting for the next round!  Making stuff for other people is way more fun than making them for yourself! 

Clear a space to make a mess!

@ Wulf..Thanks! I have no idea of the wooden animal's origion..I think they were actually my mother's at one time? I just remember playing with them lol! I always loved little toy animals and stuff and I just clearly recalled having them as soon as I saw the picture..how funny the memory is!

@whileitsraining: I always seem to be more creative when I have a purpose or specific person in mind for my projects than when I just sit around making random stuff for myself lol! I love the WWP swaps on Craftster best though, there is more room for interpration than in other swaps lol!

I love how in every WWP swap there is at least one thing in every package that I would just love to have lol!

Mandykaye- Thanks soo much for posting pics. The internet, car, work  and computer fairy's have been messing with me the last two weeks , so I was not the best communicator.  I love love your package . The Hare moon painting is so wonderful.  I love it . The goddess doll has made a permanent home on my bookshelf in the entryway of my house. Iv gotten alot of compliments already .
Every thing looks great.

Wulf, that was a happy memory, I had a little wooden zoo as a child!

I love all of your packages for one reason or another!

I feel like I under-did the theme. But my partner did such a nice job!

Behold the impchild's work!

Altar cloth, egg pentacle wreath, decorated eggs, and sweets!

All of it on my altar

Thanks a bunch!

Here's stuff I sent:

Since impchild is a kitchen witch, I made a spring apron internally marked with fortune runes.

My eggy-themed: Ostara celebration booklet, jasmine incense and strawberry leaf herb, a candle and raspberry teas tucked into the hang-able eggs. I wrapped it in a green spell bag with a white ribbon.

For her son, a dinosaur hat and mini-egg sweets.

That dino hat is cute HG! I totally wish I had children around holidays! (And most other days too lol) Easter/Ostara is definately more fun with kiddos! Not many adults want to do an egg hunt lol!

I know! People are so boring. Sad

I love the egg wreath and string-wrapped eggs. So many potential ideas there, Impchild. And is that something involving a PEEP I see there?

HG's clever herb-filled eggs made me realize that none of us made egg candles, even though they're so easy and always great to have. Next year for sure.

The fabric you made the apron out of is great too, and I love the fact that you incorporated protective runes into it. I've been thinking about that very thing recently. Another thing you can do is to do a knot spell with a piece of thin string (like embroidery floss) and thread it into the hem. This works even on an existing piece of clothing, and will be invisible to everyone, including the wearer.
