Just got my final ornament today, so here they all are!

A shot of them all together:

The first is from Pogo. Love the polymer clay and the charms.

This one is from Bookstorebabe. It's base is a light bulb and there are tiny watch gears stuck to it. (Sorry it's a bit blurry)

She sent an extra in case the original one broke in shipment. So considerate! Smiley



This is from eukarya. The artwork is amazing, and I love the antique style.

This one is from Habitat-lady. I love the clockwork Christmas tree and the way she used clay on the glass ornament. Fantastic job!

This one is from ceemonster. Such a cute airship! Love the charms at the bottom as well.

The final one is the one I kept for myself.



Thanks so much for swapping everyone! To my partners, sorry I didn't include a note or anything. I just had a baby (who is 3 weeks old today Smiley) and was trying to wrap everything up between feedings. I loved swapping and hope to do it again soon!

Alright, I took the ornaments off my inter-faith shrubbery and FINALLY found the camera -- I'm so sorry it took me so long to post pics!

Here's everybody from my group, again I was so amazed at all the thought and love put into these. THANK YOU!

Today was Christmas for me too! I walked out the door and there were three boxes (one was craft supplies)!!!!!

Last night I received from Bookstorebabe -
We share a love for the comic Girl Genius and she complete outdid herself with this awesome Agatha ornament. She has amazing detail in her dress, goggles, and even little wrench. Love her!

She is currently guarding my "green" room, I told BSB, I'll have to move some electronics out there so she doesn't go stir crazy.

Next box I dove into was from Eukarya -
I was honored to receive this gorgeous ornament with Santa and gears on the side. I've been impressed with Eukarya's art for years and am so excited to own a piece! It went straight to my tree!

My last fantastic box contained this wonderful piece by Habitat-lady:
Again, I was very impressed by the amount of detail - she managed to fit an entire airship inside the glass ornament and then decorated the outsides with clay, wire and a few gears. The photos don't quite do it justice:

Thanks so much ladies! I have been truly spoiled in this swap!

Here, finally, are the photos of my amazing ornaments, sorry they took so long:

From Harvey:
Amazing steampunk girl and cool goggles pendant.

From Alchamy513:

Gorgeous balloon ornament and

mini ornament w/goggles (Harvey and Alchamy must have known!)

From Averia:

beautiful embroidered airship and American candies (I have to say candy when talking about American lollies, it just doesn't sound right otherwise!).

And from Spookshowbaby:

the lovely canvas ornament

Thanks to all my partners! This has been an awesome swap!

I tore apart the house and finally found the cable to upload pictures but they do not do these ornaments justice! I should stop swapping completely until i get better at picture taking.

I received from Harvey first and can not get over how lovely the steampunk lady is! My photo does not show the detail well enough, but it is amazingly well crafted and absolutely gorgeous!

Harvey sent a beautiful pendant along with the ornament.

From Spookshowbaby: A beautifully done ornament! Important to note - the gears spin!

From Alchamy513 came this amazing crocheted blimp! I love the way it sparkles on the tree!

Oops, had to come back to edit to show this cute little extra ornament Alchamy513 sent - wouldn't you know, the picture of the tiniest item came out well Cheesy I'm not sure where to put it since it gets lost on the big tree, and it is too adorable to allow it to be lost in the background.

I love everything!!! Thank you so much to each of you!!!

 I received from Eukarya, Bookstorebabe and Pogo in the past few days, but knew I wouldn't have a chance to take pics and post until today, so I waited and opened all three this morning!  All so beautiful! 

From Eukarya - a delicate handpainted egg ornament with a reindeer and Christmas trees.  I love it, Thank you so much.

From Bookstorebabe - Thank you for a wonderfully creative ornament, like a small windchime.  I've already tapped the back of a small kid paw to keep her away from it.  Very cool!

From Pogo - A beautiful star in dark blue metallic clay, complete with gears.  It is so lovely, thank you. 

What a great Saturday morning!  We should really do steampunk ornament swaps throughout the year.  LOL

I received my last two ornaments today (both from Australia, that was super fast!) and they are gorgeous!

First, a gorgeous Steampunk doll from Harvey, along with a pendant and some Australian goodies! Also, she sent some pictures on a CD that I have to check out! Thank you so much! Also, I'll be emailing you a few pics, I was actually thinking of making a CD for you but my computer doesn't have a burner... so that didn't work!

Next, a gorgeous ornament from Ralph, it looks like a pocket watch! She also sent a gorgeous (resin?) pendant. Thank you so much!

I wanted to thank everyone for a wonderful swap... everyone has sent and now we just have to wait for everything to make its way!

I am totally and completely embarrassed. I know I typed up a  post for the 2 ornaments I have received, but I am not sure if I failed to hit post or if it never went through.  This is not the first time this has happened, so I am sure it is my airheadedness.  I apologize to my partners for the delay!

Here are my wonderful ornaments ....

 First up is an adorable robot from blupaisan that my son has tried to claim.

Next up is the cute lil bird from emily_rohr, again my son tried to claim this since he says it is wearing a fez and fezzes are cool.  (We are Doctor Who fans)

Thank you ladies ... these are a wonderful addition to my tree!

I'm glad you like the egg ornaments!  I tried to make something else at first but it turned out awful, so I grabbed my trusty paintbrushes and went back to basics! Smiley  The mechanical reindeer is inspired by an Urban Threads design that I love.  The Santa was just fun...I loved how the gears around the side turned out! Smiley

I've received from Pogo, Bookstorebabe and Habitat-Lady!  Fabulous ornaments so far! Smiley

From Pogo:

Love all these tiny gears!

From Bookstorebabe:

A cool airship!  My toddler loves this but I've hung it too high on the tree for him to reach!

From Habitat-lady:

So elegant!  I love all the details here! Smiley

Thank you ladies!

Here are the last of my ornaments!  I've had the flu this week so this is the first time I've been able to post.

Ashgrim sent this lovely ornament with steampunk details and keys.

Ceemonster sent me a beautiful airship with gear and key hanging from it,

Here's what I sent to Bookstorebabe - She's a lovely steampunk lady with goggles and wristbracers.
