Oh how lucky am I how lucky am I Smiley))
I received the heaviest box Ive ever had from abroad and it was filled with so much wonder. Im going to fill your eyes with things you will all want.
But first........ sometimes a swap partner just gets you - and this was so true of this swap, down to the wrapping and the way my parcels were organised. Each one was labelled and grouped according to elements, a fire parcel, an earth parcel, water and air - It was just a dream come true to open !!!
Without ado - quell your envy Wink
A gorgeous head warmer, which I will soooo wear most days, hats are such a fuss with me as I have such a big head and this will be fabulous

Ohhhhh Im so lucky lucky lucky, look at this lovely piece of artwork which will go up in my therapy barn ! I love it

SOme more painted wonderment to go in my barn

These lovely book marks, No more dog eared books for me

Looooooook at these buttons - Ohhhh I cannot wait. These will look fabulous on some prayer flags me thinks

I nearly cried when I saw these, they are tiny little goddesses

Drift wood, shells, and gorgeous stones, all of which Im going to wrap with wire and hang in my ....... craft barn. Now dearest partner why is it that I cant get John Denver out of my head when I look at these "Im off to Alaska, Im off to the land of the midnight sun......"

More candles then you could ever imagine

And if that wasn't enough, this was a fabulous gift (which I have to admit I needed some help with) some charcoal lighting discs and a lot of lovely lovely dried herbs and scents for me to burn. We already have had a good go. These will be so useful in doing ritual and ceremony work in the barn, its always a nightmare lighting up a big fire and these are so lovely


Faemystique, I am so so glad that I heard your calling and we partnered up. I cannot wait for you to receive your bundle x

What a great day for IYP mail! I got a fabulous package from the amazing pottermouth! We had agreed to exchange three things, but she spoiled me rotten, claiming that some of these things don't count. Puh-lease! It all counts; it's so awesome.

These things "don't count": some way fun washcloths and a tiny elephant cross stitch that says "ta da".


I'm counting those.

Look at this happy little Craftster! I'm pretty sure this is how I looked the whole time I was opening this package! The little heart in his hand says "IYP". Awwww....


A circus lion! Is this not the cutest? How sweet is that face? I'm sensing a circusy theme going on...


A matchbox that I'm sure is totally handmade. Look at that sweet giraffe charm! For scale, the box is 2 3/4" by 1 3/4".


Look what's inside! A whole circus alphabet!! Each piece is a tiny perfect work of art. Gorgeous!


And here's my favorite, although as you can guess, it was hard to choose a favorite. pottermouth asked if there was anything in particular I would like. I probably threw her a zinger by asking for a kid with bunny ears. (I've been wanting a kid with bunny ears for a while now. I don't know why.) But look at this adorable tyke she made me! He's so awesome!


Gah, look at that face!

You know you are so jealous. Now everyone's going to want a kid with bunny ears.

Thanks a million, pottermouth! You're the best!  Kiss

Oh, one more thing. Just for fun, a little butt shot:

What a haul, P_E_S_T! Such a thoughtful package. I love the bookmarks and head warmer especially.


Glad you like your (mostly) circus-y box, racky! The little spool kid just cracks me up. Funny that MissingWillow and I thought of you when we saw vintage spools at antique shops.... Thanks for being such a spectacular partner. It's always a joy.

great package! my favourite is the matchbox with the alphabet.  Smiley

Making this was fun and messy.  Cheesy

Thanks! My first go with with Creative Paperclay. It's so much lighter than DAS and I found it easier to paint.
