Before I post pictures of the magical goodness I received, some comments:
emilywilde - I adore the shrine you made. You sent along such goodies as well!
hawkeyes_girl - I'm really glad you like both shrines I sent. I wasn't sure about the polka-dots on the one for Mother Mary but it just felt right to put them on there. I did make the Triple Goddess shrine out of a tea tin. If you want more information about what I did to make them/the descriptions of the tarot cards I used, you can find more details here
Ludi - You made a lovely shrine. It is beautiful.
monnie - I love the earth goddess shrine. It was a wonderful idea to make it lie flat like that. The moon goddess shrine is wonderful as well.

I got a shrine to Artemis.
The lid is decorated on both sides, like so:
   
The inside is very lovely. It is full of moons and images of Artemis. There is a lithe banner of bead at the tom. The charm says 'follow your heart'.

There are all sorts of lovely little details, like these crystal chips for balance and some bay? leaves that represent the forest (or at least thats what they made me think of)
   
As hawkeyes_girl mentioned, we agreed to an extra. I asked for something to remind me to stay positive and remember the good things in life. She made this bracelet for me. There are three pentacle charms, two that say 'follow your heart', and a faerie.  She also wrote me this lovely little chant 'Mother of Darkness/Mother of Light/Guide me though/The Day and Night/Lead me to be still and kind/Guide me to treasures/I may daily find'

Thanks so much hawkeyes_girl! I love both the shrine and my bracelet. I might alter it a bit, so that it can wrap around my wrist twice. I have some rose quartz and snowflake obsidian chips that I have been meaning to use. Also, great first shrine! I adore it.

The time has come
The walrus said
To talk of many things-
Of shoes and ships and sealing wax-
Of cabbages and kings.
And why the sea is boiling hot
And whether pigs have wings.

I've never seen a swap so disrupted by weather! It'll be a relief when everyone's packages get into their recipients' hands.

One less to wait for - mine arrived from phnxreign99 today. Yay! I haven't even opened it and I'm already excited!
