My website is coming together nicely! Please send me feedback, as I don't know how well it works on systems other than mine.

Also, I have a blog at  http://neglectedblog.blogspot.com/

tacosandcakeandpies recieved her goodies and since shes so busy with finals, i have a few pics to post, but would still love some action shots!  Grin

i sent her a wrap/shawl thing (im getting sick and my head is a bit fuzzy, and I cant remember exactly what they're called), that sits just below the shoulders and fastens with hook clasp. EDIT: its a stole!  Grin


with felt pin. Its lined in a soft and slippy "silk" and has pink and gold trim.

 neckwamer with crazy button brooch.


and a decorated mini frame with the same trim as the wrap and some flowers.  Smiley also a pretty ring and hair clip.


I hope you like everything!  Grin

i've recieved from tacosandcakesandpies, but i left my digicam at my mil's over xmas so i don't have pics at the moment.

she sent me:
arm warmers
a bracelet made of soda tabs and ribbon
and a houndstooth clutch

very cute stuff.. if you have pics, please post.

Girlwonder seems to be MIA so if someone wants to take over this swap and keep track of everything, that would be awesome. I'm doing the Unconditional Swap for January right now, so I really don't have the time. Anyone up for the task?

Heh,I'm beginning to think I'm a jinx on swaps as this is my second swap which the organiser has disappeared!  Shocked Good thing I'm not going to be doing any more swaps.

Wish I could help but I'm going to be stupidly busy for the rest of the year,hence the reason I'm not doing any more swaps.I doubt I'll have time to do my own projects,let alone anything for anyone else

I have recieved from Cosmic Cranberry and she sent a fantastic package! I'll post pictures of my goodies this weekend.

Just wanted to also mention that packages between America and the UK seem to be taking a bit longer than usual,as I'm still waiting for some clothes I ordered in December to turn up,as well as another craft swap package.

I'm photographically challenged at present... Roll Eyes so if killer_threader took pics of the stuff she sent me and would be willing to take pics of the stuff I sent her, that should fill you up for a while....

k_t, you're on stage, doll!
