I RECEIVED!! And I don't want to disappoint any of you, but it's absolutely the BEST package ever!  Grin

Ok first, I received it during the day, and when I got home, it was waiting for me on the little table by the entrance. My BF hadn't said anything!  Cheesy It was all wrapped up and everything!

Here's the whole loot, still unwrapped:


Beautiful glass bead magnets, my favourite kind!:

And the box it was wrapped in had little dry flowers in it! (I've been wanting to do some paper lately, these are going in a batch for sure!):

Awesome plant decorations! (Can you believe it was Moxy's first poly clay project?!?!)

Here they are in action. The flower and the toadstool went into my peace lily. My bromelia needs much fairy dust as it is constantly on the verge of dying. So I put the fairy there to protect it, along with Lego Batman, who was already there.

Next, the awesome spoon wand. I've been wanting one of these for so long, and this one is so beautiful!

The details on the head:

The spoon was hand carved and decorated with buttons and a charms (how did you know I loved buttons? Did I tell you? I don't remember!)

So pretty and fun to play with!

And finally, a faerie catching kit!
The instructions, beautifully calligraphied (is that a word?):

And the box:

Which is actually... the most awesome fairy house! (The pictures absolutely not do it justice, it's really awesome!)

(I hadn't seen the table was upturned in this one)

Complete with four poster bed.

Dining table, mirror and feathery soft carpeting!

Ack! I already caught one!

jk! (It totally looks like one of my friends, haha!)

Thank you so much Moxy! You are so talented, I love everything you made me!!!

Ok ladies, this is the best package ever!  Starmumplus has outdid herself and EVERYONE will be wisting everything that she has made!  We did extras and oh boy! She is an AMAZING seamstress!
Now onto the fairy goodness!!!!!!!!!!!

First up is the large.  It is a beautiful fairy/hippy skirt.  I wish there was a close up of the awesome detail in the hemline. BEAUTIFUL!!!

This is the adorable owl rattle that she made for my daughter who LOVES it!  Actually, so do I so she may not get to play with it Wink

This is the coolest journal that I can add paper to, because she made it to be refillable!
What is that adorable little bear next to the journal you ask?  Why he is a smiggle that asked to go on a looooong trip, so Starmumplus sent him to me!

The next awesome thing was this beautiful toilet paper (loo) roll holder that was on my wist....She didn't stop there...she embroidered it with a beautiful dancing fairy!!!

The cutest thumbtacks made from self covered buttons! And some freestanding lace owls that she embroidered!!

Yummy candy....There are little mushrooms and some twigs that she got off the fairies candy tree!!

And the cutest headband for my daughter that you will see in an action shot at the end!

Now for the extras!!!!!!!!!!!!!

CLOTH NAPPIES GALORE!!!!  When she told me that she made them and would include some as extras...I had NO idea that they would be this AMAZING or this MANY!!  WOW!!  A group shot:

Check out the one that she personalized for my daughter Zoe!!
2-fitted made from cotton flannel polar fleece with a hidden booster of cotton flannel and bamboo.
2- one size pocket nappies
2-one size covers
1- minky one size cover with Zoe on the bum.
3- cotton terry boosters
4 flannel boosters
1- baby terry and bamboo booster
4-microfleece liners
2 washcloths
and a wet bag for going out.
(she included a pamplet from Aus on modern cloth nappies and said for more info I could go to www.ozeclothnappies.org/info.html)

I cannot begin to thank her enough for everything and now have total swap guilt because there is no way that I can compete with her beautiful package.  Again I thank you for your kindness, generosity, and talent!  What a lovely fairy you are.

Now a few actions shots....don't forget to check out the headband on that cute little head.

check out that adorable bum!

Prepare your wisting fingers!  The goodies I got from MadGypsy are soooo amazing!

The pots are paper with flower seeds in them!  That would be amazing to know how to make...  like I REALLY need another craft to do.  Smiley

An absolutely amazing fairy door!

This seems to be a rather unassuming box...  it says "a touch of magic" and has a fairy above that but then...  you open it and find.....

This BEAUTIFUL pendant directly from my wist! I love it!  I have to find some cord to put it on so I can wear it to the Renaissance Festival in Atlanta at the end of May.

This is amazing!  I love it!  I just need to find a great picture to put in it!  maybe a fairy sighting...   Wink

Fairy wings for my hair!  These are amazing!  I love them!

This is a fairy bookmark!  Really beautiful!  But I have a few bookmarks that I use that have sentimental value...  so more than likely she'll become a plant guardian...  As you see here, she's taken to the herbs already.

Finally, she sent me Minuet

She is the most beautiful music fairy!

She told MadGypsy that she wanted a new home...  her home in the fairy ring was nice and she would miss her friends but she needed a kindred music soul.  So she came to live with me!  I would take her to school to keep watch over the music room but I'm very afraid that my students would inadvertantly break her that would be very sad.  So she'll keep watch over my space at home.

As you can see, she bares her treble clef for all to see!

I love her hair!  Its a touch darker than my own but beautiful and she has ribbons in it!

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you MadGypsy!!!  This package is AMAZING!

I got my package a few days ago and just now got time to take pics and post! Sorry it took so long, guys. I love the unique and one of a kind gifts I got in my package! Thanks aisy, it was great! (Also, how did you stuff everything into that tiny tiny box? You must teach me the art of packing... Onto pictures.

K, here's the big item! Seriously, the way she packed was genius. A cute, bright fairy shirt with fairy wings on the back!

Second item, a super adorable tiny box with stickers on it, hand painted and decorated to look like a little cake! Sweet.

Favorite item EVER! He's now guarding my bookshelf.

By the way, I still need a name for my new little gnome, any suggestions?

A colorful headband with flowers and buttons!

Two more hair thingies! I love them both. The black one looks pretty elegant when I wear it and the blue one makes me happy. Smiley

A very sweet purple flower ring with an adorable red button in the middle. I really like how unique and simple it is!

Here's another view.

And jewelry galore!

Love the feather ones. Their so cute.
I would post a pic of me with/wearing some of the stuff but it's late and I have ginormous bags under my eyes at the moment.
So thanks aisy for the awesome swap we did together! I enjoyed swapping with you, making items for you and getting stuff from you!

Here are some pictures of the goodies I sent MadGypsy.  There's only one thing I forgot to photograph and that's the frog friend I made to start her Fairy Garden.

These are pictures of the Fairy Treasure Box.  It used to be a cigar box (loooooong time ago - doesn't smell like cigars anymore).

Polymer Clay Dryad.  I glued it to a wooden plaque but I don't have a picture of that.

A better picture of the Dryad's face.

She asked for some wall art so I did my best to accomidate.

Polymer Clay mushrooms

Happy Fairy Door.

Here's what i got from imagine:

All of it laid out including the pretty card that i will frame for my bathroom

The crown - made with real twigs and wired with beads

In action on my messy post-work hair - I have some fabric that i bought a couple of years ago to make an autumn fairy costume and i think this gave me the inspiration i needed to make something out of it (and a perfect accessory)

The adorable pin cushion with her needlework

A metal wand adorned with wire, shell beads, bells and leather strapping (it must have been so difficult to drill those holes!!)

And the crowning item my silly wool fairy slippers (i'm wearing them right now - super toasty)

Thank you so much imagine i loved my package and it definitely gave me that crafty pick-me-up i needed!! Cheesy

I finally got around to taking pictures and repairing the couple items that broke in transit. This is my package I received from MoonRaven. There was a sewing machine cover, some yarn, candle holder, faery wand, crochet cloths, a box with a charm, and a faery terrarium.

A picture of everything together:

The sewing machine cover:

The saying on the cover says "A friend is someone who reaches for your hand and touches your heart" I love the colors of the fabric. It matches the blue walls that are in my bedroom/craft space.

Faery terrarium with flying faery:

Faery wand and crochet cloths:


Faery box and butterfly charm:

Thanks so much MoonRaven!

I finally recieved my awesome package Cheesy International shipping can be a pain. But wow, was this an awesome package.

First off the entire box:

Then a pile of magnets and pins with images from Omnia (my favorite band), Victoria frances and Brian Froud.

A Narnia binder, I love Narnia but it's nearly impossible to find cool stuff here in the Netherlands. An Omnia cd-pouch and a green man mask for Larp Cheesy

Some more extra's; soap, a fairy keychain, and two traditional New zealand gifts.

A scarf, her very first one, it's incredibly soft, and so nice.

Three lovely little fearies she made, which are now sitting with my collection of witches Cheesy

And last but not least, my by far favorite item. A sewing kit, that I can take along to faires and events. It's decorated and she even painted the faun and the fairy on it herself!

Thank you sooooo much, I love everything.
