Well.. here I am.. finally getting around to posting a few pics of what I sent Crow Jane.

I thought I took pics of the stationary I made her, because it was some of my favourite I've ever made.. but sadly you won't get to see them now Sad

The few pics I have:
Here's the package..

This is a Hallows Not Horcruxes t-shirt I made for her.. in red because it's her fav colour and she's Gryffindor too.. It says Hallows on the front and Not Horcruxes on the back.

This is Aragog's Box
It works on 2 levels.. a box with lots of "Acromantula" on it.. and Hagrid kept Aragog in a box in the castle. I tried to make her some animal-based crafts.. because that was her main interest.

You'll just have to imagine the rest!
A stationary set of about 6 cards from memory. A few featuring Neville, Dumbledore, the Trio, a Phoenix...
2 different pairs of Gryffindor themed earrings.
A Gryffindor themed necklace with a detatchable D.A. charm I made from clay.
A Messenger Bag Kit- with fabric, lining and a tutorial I got from Craftster Smiley
A wand made out of clay
A lion rubber stamp (for Gryffindor!)
2 silver Slytherin snake charms, because, as we discovered, Slytherin's aren't all bad! Wink

I think that was all..

Sadly I don't even know if she enjoyed the package.. But I hope you guys did!

I'm very sorry to onthinice for not posting pictures of my lovely swap package any sooner.. I promise it doesn't mean I'm any less grateful, jutst that I'm swamped at the moment!

So! Feast your eyes you little September craft-heads.. this package is a killer!

The whole thing (minus the candycorn- which had already been abducted by my tounge- not even 10 minutes after I'd opened the package! I've never had it before alright!)
Also there are some little fairy and dragonfly charms and closures (onthinice works at a bead store- what a dream come true!), I love them! They are completely my style.
Oh.. there's the little customs letter too.. telling me that they had opened it but not stolen any of my presents.. yay!

A close-up of the lovely handmade soap, nagchampa scented!

A pincushion! It's adorable and I needed one too!It's made from felt and has lots of lovely knotting as detail- beautiful!

Two cup cozies.. I think I may give one to my boy when we are reunited (hopefully in Jan next year!) after 8ish months! We can be a matching set!

And my most favourite thing last- my very own swap journal! At last!
onthinice made this using a book-binding technique called "secret Belgian binding".
It even includes paper that is 25-30 years old from when her aunty was a maths teacher! It's the yellow paper featured in the pic below.

Thankyou so much onthinice- everything you maybe was so expertly done! You put so much thought into the package and it wasn't even your birthday month! Everything (especially the swap journal) is perfect!
Thanks again!

The books and cards are all so lovely so far!!

I'd like to add my book to the collection!

From qazicat:
My theme was Alice In Wonderland/Through The Looking Glass:

qazi cleverly cut out a piece on the front graphic and used a reflective surface for the looking glass! What a brilliant idea!

It is a little box and hinges open like so...

Pull on the little ribbon to reveal..

A lovely atc from qazicat herself called "Open The Door".. I love it! It's really cute and I love the little key- keys are one of my favourite motifs!

The next card is from little green dragonfly is called "Eat me- Whoops!" and features a small cupcake and Alice's limbs, growing too big for the white rabbits house!
Next to that is ariaya's ATC entitled "Hatter". I love it! The Mad Hatter is one of my fav characters!

And lastly, my card from missmelissa, depicting the lovely Alice herself.. It's a really pretty image Smiley

I want to thank you qazicat for this lovely book and all of you for the cards that fill it!
It's lovely!

Well.. since it seems Miss Mermaid has flaked (*keeps fingers crossed she hasn't*), I'll post up what I sent her..
The pic isn't very good.. sorry! I'm terrible at these pics!

It's a nestlace, a nest ring and some water-themed beads, because she was very into virgo.
I also made her a cute mermaid themed card to go with the water-themed beads and obviously her name.. but I didn't get any pics of that Sad

Well here's my pictures of the gorgeous items I received from ZaftigMomma!! (Finally! I'm so sorry I took so long to get them up- been a busy little bee!!)

She sent me a hot water bottle with a knit cover.. it has a "B" on it- my first intial!! She made reference to it having belonged to Bill Weasley (Harry Potter ref).. lol! It's adorable!

She also knit me a scarf- which I promptly wore the next day! It's so cute and pretty and I love it!!

Thankyou so much ZaftigMomma!! Cheesy I love them both.. and they will definately come in handy when I'm in the UK! Cheesy

I received my lovely tag from goatgoddess.. the yarn at the top is really pretty and textured, and there is a little postcard tile in the bottom corner that says "I love Paris in the spring time"

Thanks again goatgoddess, I love it! Cheesy
