I received an absolutely amazing package from dreadlocklove yesterday! 

The centerpiece is this amazing 9 FOOT LONG prayer banner which is made up of chakra-themed knit and beaded prayer flags that have then been joined together to make a continuous banner.  I couldn't figure out how to get in all in a photo, so I've shown it as best I can in the two photos below.  It's gorgeous and textured and cozy!  I don't think I can say enough good things about this -- I just love it!

She's also studying herbalism and included handmade essential oils in a "Happiness blend" and a diffuser and a book on meditation.  Thank you so much for such a warm and thoughtful package!  I've been stressed out studying for a summer school final exam on Monday and this absolutely made my weekend!

So I had my post showcasing all of the goodies I received from Abbeeroad prepared, when I got distracted, and my session timed out... sadly I lost all the typing and then was away for the weekend.
So here's another try...


First up, a hand-stitched mandala inspired pin. I need to put some effort into finding a nice bag for my yoga blocks so I can showcase this at the studio! I love the wooden button at the centre!


TWO bracelets! The sparkly stones are really pretty, but I LOVE the wrap bracelet! I had pinned one very similar, but the black ribbon is very much my style, and I love the OM charm and stamped disc.



A many coloured beaded necklace - there are so many different beads, that i always find something new every time I look. I am crazy about the lotus-pose wire bent person on the green pendant - love love love!


Last, but not least, a prayer flag featuring one of my favourite sayings.

Thank you to Abbeeroad, and EVERYONE who participated in this swap. It warmed my heart to hear about everyone's positive experiences, and made my first swap organizing experience very easy. Many have asked for a second round, and I anticipate that I will be running it closer to the fall.

Namaste

Yay! I'm so glad you like everything, elyxandra! I had a great time crafting for you!  It looks like the little wire lotus guy shifted a little bit during shipping. You could probably straighten him out a bit with your fingers. Sorry!

And AWESOME that you dyed my flags and batiked them! I really love them. Super cool to blend primary RITs, I never would have thought of that. Any tips on ratios to get colors? You should post your experience in the dye board - I know I'd love to hear more.

Wow -that banner from dreadlocklove looks gorgeous. I wish we could see it in person! And how cool to receive hand-made essential oils!! Great package.

Thanks for the great swap, elyxandra! Smiley

I received a beautiful package from amnesia today!

Upon opening the box:



I thought the inchie would show a bit better...  It says peace on it.  This is the first inchie I receive.  I'm not sure if I should start a little album or randomly stick in somewhere in my business (I'm a Reiki practitioner) space to inspire my clients.  Or maybe I will start a coffee table inchie album for Gathered Roots!  Either way, I was getting really excited to just dig through that box!!



Here's a meditation mat.  There's a bit of quilting done on the lighter fabric.  You may notice better if you stick your nose against your screen.  =)



...and a meditation cushion.  "Wisdom that arises from among living where it lives" and "Let's promise" is among some of the text.  I'm sitting on the cushion as I type this and it's awesome.  Just hard enough with a little squishiness leftover.  A nice height and no lopsidedness.  I like it!! 

And finally:



Some framed artwork.  "Keep calm and namaste on."  A good reminder!  To the top-right, the note, and at the bottom, a beautiful bracelet made of stones.  I'll have to adjust the size a bit but can't wait to wear it!

Thanks so much amnesia, I'm very happy with the gifts and had a great time swapping with you!  =)
