Here are the lovely hand knitted wash clothes that I received from The CraftyKat - they are super fantastic wow! I love them - it's hard to say how I feel about receiving something made by a complete stranger yet comes with love and a shared comradery. I am touched and honored to receive such lovely examples of your gifts and talents. thank you



I hope you all can see the embedded heart shape in the stitch work in the multicolored cloth - it is hard to capture on film.

Thanks again!
Blessings

Glad you like it, Mcook. Technically the flavor is "Circus Peanut" but yeah, it smells like bubblegum which is silly and fun in my book. (It really is a nice lip balm for being bubble gummy!)

Thecraftycat -- WOW! Wind's washcloths look amazing!  :o

I've had the same problem with not being able to stop smelling the soap! I love the lip gloss, I'm an addict! Thanks for feeding the need! Thanks Nymeria!





This butter stick from Mcook smells sooo good too! in fact it is kinda hard to not take a bite! My favorite pie is Key Lime so this is torture!




great job both of you! Thanks!


Title: Re: Bath & Beauty Swap Gallery!
Post by: Windoverireland on April 12, 2009 11:47:18 AM
Key Lime butter stick - I might actually eat that!
It looks fantastic - let us know how it works!
Looking good ladies!!!

Received from Denise (Windoverireland) I got awesome huge bath bombs! My boys want to use one tonight in the bath tub.... I am thinking I need to save them for myself ;) Anyhoo thanks so much they smell great!

Wind, I'm so glad you like the washcloths I sent you. :)

Smitten, I know you've received from me... I hope you like the washcloths too.

I've also sent to PonyHuetchen.  I'm glad I was able to get her package out the door.  She is overseas, and international shipping is soooooooo sloooooooow... this way, hopefully her package will arrive soon and she won't be left out while we USA-types are ooh'ing and aah'ing over our goodies.

I am also the new proud owner of one of mcook's butter sticks.  It smells so yummy that it set off sugar cravings! :)


Title: Re: Bath & Beauty Swap Gallery!
Post by: smittenheart on April 12, 2009 06:35:41 PM
yes..I have received from you mrsdutt and windoverireland..I REALLY need to upload my photos..I will get to that tomorrow..my hubby's niece is in town for a few days so I have been a tad distracted but I REALLY want to show off ALL my goodies..

LOVE IT ALL..


Title: Re: Bath & Beauty Swap Gallery!
Post by: TheCraftyCat on April 12, 2009 07:23:30 PM
^ Totally understandable.  It is a holiday weekend, after all...

I could be talked into a personal swap.  Nymeria, I'm drooling over your soaps.  Mcook, as you know, I was the lone voter for chocolate mint body butter, and while the key lime pie is *yum* I am a chocoholic.  <dangles knitted washcloths in front of everyone>


Title: Re: Bath & Beauty Swap Gallery!
Post by: MareMare on April 12, 2009 07:31:59 PM
Mcook's butter stick is rocking my world! I hid it from my nephews because they would probably try to eat it.


Title: Re: Bath & Beauty Swap Gallery!
Post by: mcook72677 on April 13, 2009 05:46:40 AM
I'm glad that everyone likes the butter sticks.
And CraftyCat maybe we can do a personal swap in a couple of weeks.  I'm trying to finish off another swap and getting ready for the farmer's market that starts in may. I could definitely use some knitted washcloths.

MMMM just got out of a hot bath w-Windoverireland bath bombs....They ROCK!! My skin is super soft! I am defiantly not sharing these with the ginger kids ;)


Title: Re: Bath & Beauty Swap Gallery!

I'm so glad you like them!


Title: Re: Bath & Beauty Swap Gallery!
Post by: fairieknits on April 14, 2009 07:01:56 AM
I tried the butter stick from mcook last night, I had a really long day at work and was really tired when I got home so I figured I needed a little pampering. Good Lord woman! I love it! My skin is soft and I had to concentrate to lick my arm!

BTW the circus peanut lip gloss from nymeria is awesome too, it smells just like circus peanuts, yum!

I should have put a warning label or something on the butter sticks explaining that they were to be used externally only. lol  I'm really glad that everyone loves them. 

I can smell the circus peanuts lip butter now the Nymeria pointed it out.  It does smell just like them.  It has been so long since I have had those things.

I don't think I've had a circus peanut in 15 years but it is instantly one of those smells that brings you back!

My bath puff from faerieknits arrived in today's mail.  I also received body butter from mcook a while ago.

Here they are:



Thank you both so much! :)


Title: Re: Bath & Beauty Swap Gallery!
Post by: Nymeria on April 16, 2009 01:41:14 PM
Wow! That bath puff looks amazing! I am in awe of your skills, Fairie!

forgot to say I love Sugar 'N Cream yarn. It's the most durable stuff ever and washes like iron!


Title: Re: Bath & Beauty Swap Gallery!
Post by: TheCraftyCat on April 16, 2009 02:07:36 PM
I love it too.  I'm using Sugar & Cream for the cotton washcloths I'm knitting.

The bath puff rocks!

Post by: fairieknits on April 16, 2009 09:46:18 PM
I'm glad you like it! I like to do washcloths and bathpuffs with the Sugar 'n Creme, it really does hold up well.

Nymeria- LOL I'm in awe of your skills with the soap and the lip balm so it looks as though we are even!

Windoverireland- Thanks!

Hey guys, I've been trying to figure out with some other mods if there is a problem with pm's going on. I didn't receive any pm's from anyone who received from me except for TheCraftyCat. Did anybody send me a pm? (in which case there is a problem with the system, since I didn't get any?) And if not, please be sure to send pm's when you send and receive so our poor organizer Nymeria doesn't go crazy!


Title: Re: Bath & Beauty Swap Gallery!
Post by: Windoverireland on April 26, 2009 06:47:02 AM
I have not received from MAreMAre, neonpirate, and princessketu.

I have a shipping # from MAre - it says it left Portland OR on the 23rd and was processed - so the wait begins! lol

I have not heard from neon or princess.

I received and posted from TheCraftyCat and Faerieknits.

Everyone but pony(in Switzerland) has received my bathbombs.


Title: Re: Bath & Beauty Swap Gallery!
Post by: mcook72677 on April 26, 2009 06:52:50 AM
Neonpirate is the only person that I have sent to that has recieved but has not acknowledged recieving in the thread or through pm's. 


Title: Re: Bath & Beauty Swap Gallery!
Post by: Nymeria on April 26, 2009 08:07:35 AM
Neonpirate is the only person that I have sent to that has recieved but has not acknowledged receiving in the thread or through pm's. 

I went ahead and marked as received because I have to assume if the DC# says it got there, it got there. Which brings me to this...

I will admit that I have become quite b*tchy about this. I have sent many PMs to people trying to get acknowledgment of receipt and sending. Some folks have had legitimate excuses (out of town, etc.) other folks I'm just not sure on.

I am at the point now where if the DC# says it got there, I'm going to assume it did. Since some people are not confirming this (despite me asking repeatedly), I'm giving credit to the sender to be fair, and if you didn't actually receive, it is up to you to let me know. It's only fair to the people sending. For international people, in two weeks I will assume all the packages have made it. It'll be up to you to let me know if it didn't.

I just want to thank everyone who has been good at communicating. I really, really, really hate being b*tchy, and I hate having to lay down a post like this. So big thanks to those who kept up on things!! :)

I got home and had a shiny new package waiting for me. Dip_n_Dot's package got here!

I got a pretty cotton soap saver in my favorite color and a wildberry scented soy candle that I can't wait to light up!


This is the facial pad and wash cloth set that I received last week!
I've used the washcloth and I'm in love!


Title: Re: Bath & Beauty Swap Gallery!
Post by: mcook72677 on April 27, 2009 06:09:45 PM
I recieved from fochaux a while ago but am just now posting a pic of what she sent.  Sorry about that!  I also recieved from dip_n_dot.

The wash cloth and face scrubbie on the left is from fochaux and the soy candle and the soap sac are from dip_n_dot. 


Thanks so much fochaux and dip_n_dot!!!!!


Title: Re: Bath & Beauty Swap Gallery!
Post by: Nymeria on April 27, 2009 07:18:13 PM
I, too, received from dip_n_dot today!! The soap bag is soooo nice, and the candle smells dreamy. It's nice because mrs.dutt's candle is a fresh, baked goods smell which is nice for the house, and this one is a warm, relaxing bath candle. (Seriously, I'm a spice-aholic! Which may be why I love "Dune" so much... ;D)



The blue is poifect, too! It's the shade I love! :)

Here are the items I have received so far! Yummy butter stick from mcook and fab bright pink pouf from fairieknits!!

I think I've made a horrible mistake.

Yesterday, DH had to troubleshoot a production problem at work.  (Fortunately, he didn't have to go into the office, but he was hard-wired to his computer and the phone for much of the day.  :(  No worries, though - I got some knitting done.)  He was really on edge, so once everything was resolved, I offered to draw him a bath.  I drew him a bath and told him that he could use the soap I received from MareMare.

Now he wants to keep it...........

My DH has already claimed Smitten's basil soap as his.  >:(

I'm using the papaya soap right now and mmmmm does it smell great. I love those fragrances that "activate" under hot water and just surround you in yumminess!

Bwahahaha! Orange Dreamsicle has always been really popular for me with the male population!

Oddly, this doesn't surprise me. DH loves to eat them, I'm sure he'd love to bathe in them!

That was my thought too. Do you think she accidently put two scents in my envelope? If so I can pop one in the mail to you. I haven't used them yet, got a late start and rushed right past them this morning.


Title: Re: Bath & Beauty Swap Gallery!
Post by: mcook72677 on May 05, 2009 07:58:57 AM
So I figured out what happened.   I double checked the envelope because I do have baby brain right now and could have over looked something.  There was nothing more to be found inside the envelope but I did find that both sides of the envelope were ripped so the items more than likely fell out.
This is the second time this week that I have recieved a swap package that was shipped in a standard white unpadded envelope.  At least I recieved something this time the last envelope was empty.  So friendly advice...use padded envelopes or boxes when shipping parcels.

I'm so sorry that your package fell open - it is always better to use a padded envelope:)

Thanks princess - I love fizzies!!!!

Oh ok! I was going to assume, since I saw "vanilla" on the label, but then I thought since you made the other one I was wrong, didn't know you did two! :D

I am totally sending you a bar when I soap up this vanilla blossom!

Alright, I have marked almost everyone as being completed. According to the DC #'s I have, everyone in the US has received.

If I have marked you as having received and you have NOT, please let me know, otherwise everyone should have feedback. Thanks!

Smitten, I've been using the basil soap you sent and it is so fricken yummy! Not only does it smell yummy, but the lather is amazing, and it doesn't leave my skin dry like all other soaps in the world (not including other amazing handmade soaps). Mind sharing the recipe? ;) ;)
