Smiley  Cheesy  Grin This swap gallery is intended as a way to recognize all the wonderful personal swaps that are done in this community!   Grin  Cheesy  Smiley

Personal swaps are not encouraged or supported by Craftster.  This is only a thread to post pictures from your personal experiences.  Personal swaps are not and cannot be tracked in Swap Feedback on profiles and should not be linked to Craftster's Organized Swaps in any way.

Folks who have participated in a personal swap and wish to share pictures of the items they have sent and received may do so by posting in this gallery.

Please note that this gallery is meant for those who have had a good experience with their personal swaps!  This is not the place to air your grievances about being "flaked" on...please keep it positive and give love to those awesome personal swappers! Wink

Each month a new gallery will be started.  If you have received from a personal/private swap, within the month, feel free to post pictures here!   Grin

Or browse previous galleries...

Do more of what makes you happy.

I wasn't sure whether or not to post this, because it's not exactly crafted, but it was a personal swap and I'm really grateful to the very lovely ScotSkipper, so I thought why not? At the very least it serves to show that ScotSkipper is a great person to swap with (these came before I even realised it, and I'm international!) And what better way to start off a gallery than with candy? Exactly.

So, I got a lovely little package of American candy for my boyfriend and me to share on our anniversary at the end of the month: a huge bag (squee!) of Jolly Ranchers (his favourite), three packets of Kool Aid (I find this hilarious - it advertises itself as "a good source of vitamin C" and "unsweetened" and the instructions say to add a CUP of sugar... Grin) in an Altoid tin (oooh the possibilities...) and six Tootsie Pops (two watermelon, two blue raspberry, one strawberry and one chocolate).

Unfortunately, the chocolate one disappeared soon after.

I, uhhh, don't know where it went.

Thanks again! Now I'm even more excited about my anniversary, I can't wait to eat all these sweeties with my sweetie  Wink
(hahaha sorry)
It's going to be so hard keeping these a secret (and not eating them  Tongue), I can't wait to give them to him. I just hope he doesn't snoop on Craftster...

Wists beyond measure are man's greatest treasure... Wink

"not exactly crafted Angry"?

I emptied that Altoids tin by hand, all by myself! Grin

Did y'all know that Jolly Ranchers are Canadian? (I suspect, if you're Canadian, you know.) So much for sending USA sweets to Ireland...
