I really wanted to join this one too, but didn't think I could do a good job. Maybe if there's a round two I'll get ideas from this gallery...  Wink

Ok! Here's the fantastic stuff I got from rackycoo yesterday:

The amazing shrine that she built by hand complete with jiggly little skeleton man that she also apparently made by hand! And a beautiful poem by Luis San Vincente called *The Festival of Bones* with illustrations from the poem. I especially love the muerto tag she put at the bottom!











And here it is in it's new environment!


And here's the cute little zippered pouch with awesome skully-fabric lining and matching rugged skull on the outside!






And some goodies that she stuck in the pouch: an extra jiggly skeleton man and a plastic skull ring (& also a dragonfly charm that i think fell off the shrine but i don't know where it goes Smiley )


And finally, these gorgeous individual notecards that came in a tied little bundle and were all different:





This was an awesome first-swap and I had so much fun. Rackycoo will be getting the stuff I made her on Monday, so I won't post anything yet....

rocknroll, it was nice to see that everything made it OK. Thanks for your kind words. The dragonfly charm was attached to the apex of the roof, with the "believe" charm hanging down. I hate that it fell off, but it should be easy to re-attach if you like it up there!

Looking forward to Monday when your package arrives. I'll be sure to post when I get it!
