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...

Note: Usually sweets4ever starts up these monthly galleries, but she's in Hawaii on her honeymoon. Smiley

tazzell just sent me a fantastic package! First, a gorgeous stencilled thistle on a t-shirt. The pic doesn't do it justice- it's a coppery metallic color on a light aqua shirt. Gorgeous!

Next, a fabulous owl cable potholder! I love the owl cable and I have needed more potholders. It's terrific!

And finally, a cross-stiched owl made by her daughter. She made one for the last round of the Owl Swap, and I fell in love with it. It is just so cute! She kindly stitched another one for me!

Thanks, Taz (and your DD)! I love it all!

The choices you make today determine the choices you will have tomorrow.

I just did a personal swap with Luxielou and she sent me an awesome polymer clay kit! I'm so excited to get started, I checked out a polymer clay book from the library today and was reading it at work all day!

Directions, along with a picture tutorial for an adorable covered altoid tin she made

A blade and roller

Magnets, Mirrors, and an Altoid Tin (still has altoids in it!) to cover

Some scrap clay, and really cute magets and a charm she made

4 canes Luxielou made!

And slices from each one, I had to see!

And, oh yeah, lots of clay!

Thanks Luxielou, this was a great swap and I can't wait to get started making stuff!

I got a surprise package from xladyluckx this morning!

First, there was a note that said " These wanted to go to your house, and I said ok!" Grin

She sent an ESP (a brand of guitar) wrist cuff, and these extremely wonderful kitchen hand towels. Aren't these the coolest hand towels ever?

Thank you so much for the surprise goodies! I love them! You are the best, Leah! Kiss
