Awesome haul? Not in comparison to all you sent me! Grin

First a group shot:


Then close-ups:

DD #1 has already claimed all the teas on the top row as her own.

A spring wreath of forsythia blossoms that could be worn as a necklace (it opens where the green tendrils are), on the head like the floral wreaths I wore in my hippie days, or used as home decor. Think I'll probably use it on an interior door.

A gorgeous hand-stitched journal with about 7 signatures, which translates to a ton of pages. In this case a signature represents the 4-8 pages that are folded together and stitched to form a section of a book. Love the nature theme!!!

A very delicate looking gold and amber beaded necklace, a matching memory wire bracelet, and a sweet purple flower with two green leaves that I may add a jump ring to and use as a pendant on a necklace.

Much as I love everything else, I have to admit that I was hoping Hawkeyes_girl would make me another bar of her fabulous soap. She didn't. She made me four bars! She got me hooked on handmade soaps almost two years ago, and now it's what I prefer over store brands.  I've never seen a beer soap, but I'm guessing dh will become a big fan of it. Cheesy

Just had to take a shot of the lavendar soap to show how pretty it really is since the group photo makes it look almost black.
And for some reason Craftster would upload everything else, but wouldn't recognize the patchwork pillow and fat quarter photo as a jpg file. The pillow is a perfect size to use as a wrist support at my computer, so it's already in its new home. Oh, and the sack of red things are scented wax hearts. They smell delicious!

Thanks again, Hawkeyes_girl! You're such a generous swapper!

This has been an awesome swap!  I love what everyone has received.  I can't believe that this was all made out of everyone's craft supplies. I feel better that I'm not the only one who has the craft supply hoarding bug. 

I'd love to organize another one of these swaps.  I'm thinking maybe end of the summerish?  I'm a little burnt out on organizing swaps right now, but would love to see another one.  I know some of you have expressed interest in doing another one.  What does everyone else think?

Oooooh yes - another one would be great!  Later summer or early fall would be great.  Undoubtedly I will have more added to my stash then ;P

But on saying that, this swap has really inspired to craft from my swap lately, including some tools I haven't used in awhile.

If you are organizing it at the end of the summer, I think I'd be game.  I'm taking a swap break for a while.

This swap has been fantastic! And I would totally be up for another round of it at the end of summer/beginning of fall. We will be in our forever home by then!!! And I agree, this swap has set my mind up to do my other swaps out of my stash. I swear, looking in my bins and closet is like shopping in Joanns. There's really a lack of NOTHING in there lol.

Thank you so much Kwality!!!

I received from psyche this morning - she sent me a lovely package



She made me some fabric bookmarks, one in a lovely floral pattern, and the the other in lovely batiks.  Beside them is a wrist gob - something on my wishlist for awhile - I love the purple and the purple owl ribbon.





Two canvases made from book pages



A great selection of ephemera, including some girly playing cards, advertising, buttons/charms - love it

Finally, a great little tote that would be perfect for shopping.  It has nice long straps that will go nicely over my shoulders and a nice large pocket outside, trimmed with the same owl ribbon as on the wrist fob.



... and this is the inside!




Thanks for the package and thanks for swapping with me!
