Wow, this has been a fun swap - and did I ever have to do some action shots of this stuff! I received from Proxima today - I'm really impressed at all that she fit in this tiny box! I got a wonderful Talya-style top, and a beautiful necklace and ring:

Of course, every good woman warrior needs an apprentice . . . .



A close-up of the ring:

And necklace:

The Stargate coaster - very prettily done!

Lisette modeling one of the Stargate pins (haven't been able to get them or the pipe cleaners away from her!):

And the wonderful assortment of crafty stuff, Stargate pins & stickers, tea & snacks!:

A close-up of the stickers - lots of tough, witty chicks (like me!) and, of course, all those long, lanky muscles (or, in other words, Ronon Dex Wink ) and the three buttons with stargates, logos & a really cool space scene:

Thanks Proxima!  Hope you like the stuff I've got en route . . . .

Hooray! I just received from my lovely partner and our organizer Sinjah! Now I have to show you all my great stuff!

Here's everything all wrapped up in the pretty silver paper.


The first thing I opened was this:

Fabric coasters that say my real name in Ancient! So cool!

Then I opened these:

Awesome little magnets with the stargate symbols in! These are so cool, I can't wait to but them up on my fridge and spell out random gate addresses!


This soap is awesome. Earth!Soap! She says it was badly done, but it looks perfect to me!

And lastly, my favorite

This journal is amazing! It looks so awesome. I have been needing to get a new travel journal, and what could be better than one with the symbol for "home" on the cover?

Here's a pic of everything together


Thanks so much, Sinjah! I love everything! And thanks for organizing this swap, it's been great!

Yay Sinjah is back! And she received the package I sent to her, but she doesn't have a proper camera just now so I volunteered to share some pictures of the things I sent her.

Firstly, a journal

It says "Book of My Genius my M. Rodney McKay" on the cover and there are random Rodney quotes in the top and bottom corners of some of the pages.

Next, a personal shield emitter pin I made of sculpey

I was pretty amused by this idea, and my sister is already demanding that one be made for her as well.

Then, (my favorite thing I made) a stargate tote bag

The design continues on the back


And since I used stars and "space" on the outside of the bag with the stargate, I decided to use a neat fabric covered in clocks and "time" on the inside (so the bag is made of space and time)

(sometimes impulse fabric purchases really pay off Smiley )

And two little postcards from Atlantis (and one from my place of employment hiding in there as well)

Now, you're bound to be JEALOUS AS HELL. Because Ozarcat made my wildest dreams look like 2D black and white sucky animation. The stuff I got from her is the coolest thing ever! Everything looks so profesional and it's exactly my style and I almost fainted when I saw the beautiful things, THANK YOU SO MUCH!
Here's the bunch of awesomness:



Two blurry action shots of the AMAZING, BEAUTIFUL AND BREATHTAKING McKay T-Shirt, it's the openng credits SGA portrait and it's so perfect and fits me so well!


Yummy tea


The coolest necklace and bracelet  ever with SGA symbols and little frames with SGA characters, so cool! I LOVE pasteels so much, but couldn't think of a way to combine them with SGA - and she managed to do so perfectly!


Letter paper which looks so professional! There's my address too, but I don't really want to share it XD. I can imagine writing on it something really serious, like a letter from my lab at Atlantis!


And a totebag that made me faint. Seriously, have you ever seen something so well made, cool, sweet, beautiful and so SGA?

I just got my cool swag from RikaHeart! Check out the goodies:


Here's some ingenuity for you - she took a pair of potholders and turned them into the stargates' event horizon! The rim and chevrons are felt and they're really chunky and cool.


She also made me a set of four double sided bookmarks, each with a quote from one of the four original main characters, and a chevron and stargate charms for me to colour as I wish.


Next up, a set of six DHD dialer coasters and polyclay glyph pins that will go on my cork board straight away.


And these are some amazing old drawings Daniel brought back from his adventures with Teal'C. I wish I could hang stuff on my walls, because these would look so awesome framed, but since I can't, I might turn them into super awesome journal covers.

Thanks so much, RikaHeart!

I'm sorry to hear that Crafty Cat.  I hope everything works out for you Smiley

Aaaasss promised, here are pictures of what I sent to Catrinau.  She received a few weeks ago but then life interfered, so I wanted to share Smiley


We have a mission journal!  It had a chart of the glyphs in the front cover and was filled with quotes (I got a bit overzealous on those...).  I had things like "If you immediately know the candlelight is fire, then the meal was cooked long ago", and Jack and Daniel's repartee, etc.  My favorite is the inside back cover- "You know, in some galaxies this is known as loitering" (Jack, of course).  I also stuck two bookmarks in the pocket in the back- one with Sheppard and "Trust a convict to know how to restrain someone" and an Asimov quote about science fiction from the SG-1 ep 200.



A tote in military olive with the Earth symbol on one side and



You know that 'we come in peace business'?  Bite me.  on the other Smiley



And my favorite, the piece de resistance, my first real foray into polymer clay, yes that is a Stargate clock.  Modeled off the Atlantis gate (hence the floor lol).  The dots are random, but they do have some glow in the dark paint to make them shine a teeny bit.  The way the light from lights/camera flash hits it looks like someone just walked through.  I tried to replicate it with paint...



But no dice Sad  And I just realized the reason it was bothering me to look at is because the floor is crooked...blast!  That was way too much fun though, I may have to make myself one Cheesy

Ok, essay over hahaha Wink  I just wanted to share Smiley

It seems I'm the lucky first recipient.  Check out the goodies I got from audio-astrophysics!

Jack's hat, a wristband with the Earth symbol, and a stamp with Teal'c's (ok, Apophis's) symbol:


A notebook (note the indicated planet):


And a plush Goa'uld symbiote:


(Hey... where did the symbiote go, and why are my husband's eyes glowing?)

Thank you so much!!  Cheesy

That is an awesome package, the artwork is probably my favorite! Smiley  I have here pictures of my package from Catrinau Smiley



At the top I have a crocheted Go'auld symbiote WOO!  Clockwise from there, an Asgard head paperweight- the detail is crazy, it looks just like an Asgard.  There's an Ori staff weapon that I think I'm going to turn into a kick-a$$ keychain, a stargate mirror WITH a magnet on the back, which means I can put it on a fridge...somewhere Cheesy  And to the far left, a Wormhole X-Treme! mug which rocks way hardcore, and I can't wait to display it in public someplace Grin


The last item is a Go'auld hand device- fear me!  bwahahahaha Cheesy

Thank you Catrinau, my box is way cool!!  I'm going to try to add pictures of what I sent her later this week when my computer's up and running, since she's received but has been very busy and had some internet issues Smiley

Since my package is taking so long, I thought I'd post a teaser pic!

First to receive, last to send. Sad  Hopefully the post office won't route my package through Abydos and audio-astrophysics will get it in two or three days.  Since she's been so patient, here's a teaser pic:
