This gallery is soooo full of beautiful things, everyone's crafts are amazing!  Shocked it has been a great swap, one of my favorites so far  Smiley

And I got my envelope today! I don't find the right words to express how much I love it, it is simply wonderful!!!   Writer78 sent me the most awesome, beautiful, wonderful piece of art! The title is 'One Tiny Girl' and it is an acrylic on canvas painting of my daughter, approx. 4x5 inches and it is so perfectly made, I love it!  It will have a very special place here at home.
Here is a picture of the wonderful painting and below is a pic of my daugther so you can see how perfect Writer78 made it...




Eva, thanks again! you should sooo change your name from Writer78 to Writer/Artist78, that would show the whole art inside you  Cheesy you rock!

loves2experiment, the beads are amethyst Swarovski crystals.  It was the first time I ever crocheted with wire. The crocheted bit is about a half inch, so for earrings not so tiny, but for crochet--pretty small!

Good gracious!  I was wondering if it was crocheted but I didn't wanna ask in case it wasn't.  Nice work, aliciasjoy!

Writer78, I'm in awe!  Cheesy   Now, I can't wait to see what you received from CraftyZary!

**big hugs** to CraftyZary and to you guys for the wonderful comments!  I'm so glad the painting was a success.  It's always a bit nerve-wracking, since art's only job is to look good, so if I failed at that, there isn't really a use for it.  So a success is always a big relief!

I will scan Zary's stuff (not that she sent me more than one thing... *grin*) here at work today and show you.  I'm a LUCKY GIRL!

Here we go!  This is the lovely little 3x5 mini journal that CraftyZary made for me:



Inside the front cover, she printed in my coat of arms and added my name and the word "journal" in gothic script:



Inside the back cover, my coat of arms is printed again, and you can also see the leather bookmark that's attached to the spine:



Zary wanted me to point out to everyone that she DID follow the rules and sent One Thiny Thing to swap with me.  I need to point this out because also in the envelope was this awesome leather-and-wood necklace for my peasant costume:



She was very clear that the necklace was a "thanks for organizing" gift, and it was therefore not a swap item, and she therefore followed the rules.   Grin  Hey, I'm not one to argue!!  As princess pointed out earlier, "Writer won't send it back!"  Nope - this little writer is keeping her cool costume necklace!

THANK YOU, CraftyZary, for the lovely e-mails and the awesome crafts!

*passed loves2 the oxygen mask* Me, too! 

Writer78, that tiny portrait is delightful!  CraftyZary now has two treasures: a little girl that will grow up and a frozen moment in time, captured by a friend, where she'll always be the little laughing beauty.

Wow, the little portrait and journal are awesome.  I'd love to learn how to make books.  Here is what I just received from sporkx71.  Very cute sparkly blue earrings!  Thank you so much!
