Dixie~ Aaaahh!! The necklace was broken??!! Oh man, I'm so sorry. Sad  I'll send you whatever you need to fix it if you don't do that kind of stuff, okay? Okay. I'm so glad you like the stuff, it was a thrill to make. It was VERY hard to let go of those coasters, but I'm so pleased that you seem to love 'em like I do! So it's obviously worth it. Wink  I have decided that, actually, my loverly pillows belong in my car, b/c my car is actually like my own moving shrine to all things i love. And since she (my car, Sassy) is ALL MINE, My darling pillows can go there! Yay!
So much fun, thanks to all....Oh, and Dixie, I can post pictures of the stuff I sent if you need, just let me know.

Aelphaba sent me a lovely package! Smiley Two wooden plaques with historical Mary pictures, and a piece of navy cloth with embroidered religious symbols.  I love everything! The plaques now live on my wall.

Life isn't complete 'til you crochet a uterus for a friend.  Just make sure your fallopian tubes point down and not up! No one needs to lose an eye this way! Wink

I love personal swaps for small stuff (including Hershey Kisses!)! PM me for happy fun rockin' good times!

The pillows are beautiful!  dixie_terror did a great job. 
Goldfinch- Too sad that your boyfriend does not like the things too colorful. I have the opposite situation because my husband loves everything mexican (of course!  Cheesy ) and the more mexican the things look, the better.

Finally I got my camera back and I have the chance to post the pics of the things that I made for stopmoshun.  I need to apologize for the many pictures, I use to take pics of every item but next time I will take the pics in groups so that I don't have too many.

Here are the goodies...
A Virgen de Guadalupe shrine house for keeping jewelry or keys. 



A handmade journal/booklet with foam cover and some embellishments


I am in love with this swap, I loved to do everything and I love the amazing things that stopmoshun sent me!


The Guadalupe jewelry that was inside the shrine (a bottlecap necklace and 2 bracelets)



A belt with Holy Mary buckle



A vinyl covered bag with bag charm/keyring

Well, since we've not heard from my swap partner, I thought I'd just share what I sent:



A wooden cigar-box purse, painted and decoupaged with the virgin along with some jewels and some lace edging. Inside was some nice starry scrapook paper decoupaged onto the box, along with a mirror. I was thinking it would be a nice place to stash some makeup or jewelry and the mirror would help ya check yourself out Smiley



Some Virgin ornaments for the xmas tree or whatever Smiley

and the best thing I made -- it took me about the entire two months to make (i stretched it out because i've been busy at work Smiley )



There are larger versions of those on my flickr if you want to see more detail.

I didn't really go hog wild like a bunch of you did, because it was my first swap and I wasn't exactly sure what to do or expect really, apart from what I read.

Oh well. I hope she likes it, wherever she is!

magoshi--awesome stuff--especially the "pillow"(?)...VERY bootiful!  Cheesy  I have to post the pics I took of my stuff b/c my swap partner is MIA at the mo'.   i made a fingerpuppet that looked a lot like your pillow.

and zary--OOH LA LA i flipping LOVE your jewelry.  esp the bracelets-- are you posting a tutorial for those any time soon?  so shiny and brightly colored. i'm in lust with your beads.  Kiss

you guys are so talented. my stuff is mostly "glue" and "stitch by hand" and your guys' stuff is "professional" and "should be sold in a store somewhere."   Shocked
