I received a fabulous package today from gala_apples!  It made amazing time from Canada to the US, only a week!!!!

The top picture is two leather cuff bracelets stamped with quotes from Harry Potter.  The bottom left is a raindrop bracelet from The Dresden Files Stormfront which gala_apples read just so she would know what the heck I was talking about.  (I hope you enjoy the series!!) Finally the bottom right is a Castiel themed bracelet for my biggest fangirl crush from Supernatural.  Thank you so much gala for catering to my bracelet fetish! I love them all and they all fit! (I may need to adjust the raindrop one slightly, just so I don't snag it on things)

Here is the Gaia shrine I sent to grasshopper.  She is new and didn't have a specific theme/goddess in mind, but did mention a nature goddess. 

This is the outside, it is a decorative book box I got from Michaels. I didn't do anything to it, it was pretty and fitting as is.  Also a geode slice necklace extra I included.

Hope you liked it grasshopper, I had fun making it Smiley

Here is my amazing moon goddess shrine from grasshopper!  We haven't had any cloudless days so I did my best with the natural lightening I had.

It is a sphere box outer shell!!! There are stars and ribbon (?) decopaged on it before it was painted silver

Inside is the little goddess on her padded bed with moon dust, gems, and a mini moon.  It is so lovely and the whole concept is so fun!  I love it!  Thank you so much grasshopper!

Yay! Finally!  I had to take action shots of everything since they are all in use already.  The Wish jar was used on New Year's Eve at midnight with the whole family Smiley  I snapped this picture right before we all went outside.  The two littlest girls were so excited to see the seeds floating in the wind out of their hands.  The name sign is from an old piece of wood that Mandy found under her house which is so cool!  It is the perfect size and fit to hang under our mailbox.  The spoon wand is a much needed gift, this one is for prosperity and it is hanging in the northwest corner of our hall entry.  I am really hoping this year is way better than the last!  Thank you so much Mandy, as you can see I LOVE and am using everything!

Here is my "small" package from thegreengriffin.

She sent me a gorgeous hearth rug as my goddess is Brighid.  I am going to use it at the base if ny altar so that my kitties don't get any funny ideas about it.  There is also a pair of corn dollies earrings and a beautiful hand spun dish for my altar.

So my package to AMIFRIENDS has yet to arrive  Angry Huh  So I am going to start on a second package for her today.  I was given permission to post the pictures I took of the first shrine before I shipped it.  The theme I picked was Unicorns/Mermaids

I made it in a wooden purse box.  The larger part had feet on the bottom so that when the box was opened the flap part laid flat on the table and the larger part stayed upright. Its painted white, although my terrible lighting makes it look cream or yellow. 

I used washi tapes to make the rainbow in the background.  It has tulle grass and felt flowers.  This was the best "mini" unicorn I could find, which is obviously a My Little Pony lol

The water is actually a combination of "glass" paint.  I guess its suppose to be used when trying to make things look like glass on coasters or something.  It takes FOREVER to dry when you do it so thick though.  I thought it was great water.  I used blue and blue sparkle.  The mermaid is a wooden bead on a large glass stone with more felt plantlife and tulle grass. 

So bummed this never made it, but hopefully I can make another shrine just as fun Smiley

Ok I got my wonderful package yesterday from dreadlocklove and man oh man did it smell GREAT!  She defiantly played to my love of lavender and I am so thrilled  Grin

First is a set of 4 bath bombs, two bars of soap, and a lip balm.  All contain lavender and smell great!  I have already been using the lip balm and it a feels nice on my lips.  I am not sure what else is in it but I love it. 

Next up is the basket with all of the bath lovelies in it.  It is a very sturdy crocheted basket with handles, I carried most of my haul in it to take pictures and it held it all just fine.  I love the colors too.

Next is a hand/body/face lotion made with vitamin E.  I was very excited to receive this as I am beginning to realize how poorly I take care of my skin.  My face and arms in particular as they get the most sun.  Also in this picture is a loose incense smudge mix that she purchased online.  It contains lavender ( Grin ), cedar, sage, rosemary, and black Etheopean resin.  It smells great and I look forward to using it to help cleanse our rental once we get to Oklahoma.

Here is a spicy bbq spice run that is coming on the road with us.  Both my husband and my dad are big bbq buffs and we are staying with my parents for a few days in between NJ and OK so this will get used soon.  Also some spruce tip salt, I am not sure what I will be using this for, but I love trying new things.

Here are two jars of jellies.  There is a spruce tip jelly and a lilac jelly.  I am especially curious about the lilac jelly as it is my second favorite flower and floral scent!

These are two adorable crocheted coasters with tiny leaves.  These will defiantly find a home on my everyday altar once it gets set back up in Oklahoma.

Lastly is some herbs.  A very large bag of ceremonial white sage (one of my specific wishes!) Some while harvested Sweet Fern from dreadlocklove's cottage.  She tells me this can be used in tea or burned as incense.  I plan to try it both ways.  Also there is some Orange Mint and celeriac leaves.  I plan to use the mint in tea and the celeriac leaves in cooking, most likely when I make some veggie stock for the freezer.

Thank you so much!  I am very excited to try out some new things that you sent me as well as enjoying all the fabulous lavender products.
