Thanks for the compliments guys!  And I must say JKaz your photography skills are good!  I tried to take pictures, but everything turned up with a glare!

Ok, here are the pics with my not-so-beast camera skills Smiley

A look at everything that Zephyr sent; includes a fairy purse, three elemental bracelets, a cool spiraling incense burner, two pressed flower journals, and a pack of fairy soaps that are too cute Smiley.

The purse is a beautifully done splatter-painted silhouette of a fairy in green and turqouise (my favorites!) on a dark brown messenger bag with light blue lining. I don't think the fairy is hard to see at all and I really do love how it turned out... I didn't and halfways still don't believe that was your first purse though Zephyr! Here's a pick of the inside...



Which, as you can see, is tres proffesional  Wink. And it's just the right size for hauling books! Here's an action shot:



I think it's very me Smiley.

And the bracelets fit quite well, and are just the kind of thing I can throw on in the summer and feel totally put together  Grin


The soaps are so cute, and I know the pics really bad, but they have pretty fairy pics on them. Definetly coming out when guests come over!  Smiley



I tried really hard to take a good pic of the incense burner but I couldn't get rid of a god-awful glare... It's vanilla, my fav scent and looks really cool next to the rest of my esoterica-esque stuff, so I've concluded Zephyr must be psychic. One thing in particular struck me as quite funny... on the incense box it says "All natural incense... and nothing else!" I can't decide if that's trying to say that the scents are fully organic or that it's not intended for drugs  Cheesy

The journals will be very useful! I can't decide whether to fill them with my accounts of my angst-ridden life or something more worthy of their prettiness , like poetry about fairy circles and midsummer nights... Smiley

All in all, a FANTASTIC first swap. Thanks and kudos to Zephyr for an awesome pack (don't worry... It totally has a theme to me  Wink ) and thanks also to Paradise Crane for re-organizing!

Im so glad you liked it all!! Smiley I was really worried about the strap being too short for you..I used myself to measure and Im onlu 5'1" but Im glad you really like it. It is my first real bag, so I was proud. Took forever though, lol. Thats funny about the incense burner too, haha. If you ever want more of the journals, since they have so little paper, just let me know and I would be MORE than happy to send you some! I think theres another design thats pressed flowers with a different color.

I cant wait to get your package! <3

I'm really happy you liked everything, and as soon as I figure out where my kitties hid those stickers, they're getting mailed to you! lol
