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...

Ptarmic wumpus made this gorgeous scarf for me:

as modeled by my navy blue couch.  Smiley  It's gorgeous!  I just have to find a way to keep DD from "borrowing" it.  Roll Eyes    

I sent her a crocheted doorknob cover, but didn't manage to get a picture before I sent it out.  I hope she likes it!

I LOVE that doorknob cover! Such a clever idea! Cheesy

*bebe* and I are in the midst of a personal swap..... and here's what she sent me!

A pincushion souffle! My eyes almost burst when I saw it, it's SO CUTE! Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy I couldn't stop admiring it! And it's got my initial on it... Cheesy

See? A souffle. Grin She also sent some super postcards from Wellington, NZ Grin I love them! They were taken at night, so the city's all aglow Grin  I'm getting tons of use out of this pincushion already, though I've been careful not to poke the turtle Wink Grin

Thank you SO MUCH, *bebe*! Kiss You're awesome Grin

mimiw and I did another personal swap!  This time we swapped Christmas gifts for other people.

I made her the hat, and she made me 5 beautiful little tea wallets!  My friends are going to be so happy.  Grin

Here is a picture of me wearing the hat.  Let me know if you want it a bit longer, mimiw!
