I received from the wonderful AeonGoddess but was out of town on a family emergency again (the second time in as many weeks). She posted pictures earlier so I assume everyone already looked at the beautiful stuff she sent me. I am in love with everything. The bag is A-mazing. I love science and nature so the embroidery is a perfect mesh of the two. The resin pendants are perfect and very impressive for a first try!! The tea is delish (I finally got to try it Aeon) and I can't wait to try the honey! It's funny how I didn't even think of using the little bag holding the jewelery as a dice bag but it is much prettier than my little plastic baggie I've been using.

Thanks so much again Aeon!

Everyones items are so beautiful and I just love everything posted!

I got my package a few days ago, but have been in and out so I just got to it today- I love it!!!!

Craftycreations79 was my swap partner and she made me a lovely bag, screen printed on oth sides with a button, two hemp necklaces, some soap, a decoupage fish bowl, and a handmade notebook with a poem on it...I love it all! 

It's been so fun seeing how different everyone interpreted the theme- every single package looks so unique!

I 100% agree with sparrowowl, every package is unique yet fits into the theme of Back to Nature.  I'm totally blown away by the cool stuff people have made, and can't wait to hear what my partner catpants thinks of what I made for her!

I've recieved a wonderful package(actually there were 3 of them!) from my partner Kenners last Thursday. Pictures are a little late, because I escaped civilization (including computers) over the weekend. Anyway, here's what our lovely organizer sent me:

Kit for making lip balm. Absolutely awesome, I've been wanting to make my own lip balm for a while, but never got any longer than collecting containers to put it in, but this will certainly get me started!

A tote bag in a gorgeous autumn print fabric. A hand bound journal made almost exclusively from recycled materials, covered with a beautiful fabric with embroidered leaves. The bracelets and earrings are shown in a close-up below:

The cute little birds are made from stone and the bracelets are made from wood beads in browns and greens.

I can't find any words to describe the awesomeness of the next item, but don't worry, a picture says it all!

Thanks to Percy the Peacock, a friend of Kenners, for sparing a few feathers for this project!

The stones are covered with felted wool, and are lovely to touch. There's also some calming herbal tea. These items I've decided are for whenever I feel stressed or locked up in my small cyty apartment. I'll just make a cup of tea, sit down, hold the stones and just relax.
The bunch of clay grass is actually a really clever vase. Put flowers in it and it looks like they're growing from a heap of grass. I would've liked to take pictures of it being put to use, but I couldn't find any flowers nearby.

Last but not least there were these lovely stenciled notecards, almost too pretty to send!

Big thanks to Kenners for this fabulous lot!

Personal swap friendly. Friendly in general.

Wow!!!  I love the vase...and the peacock bag...and the stones.  What an awesome package.

The reeds on the vase, are those made from polymer clay?

Wow, Kenners, what a creative and beautiful package!  The stones idea is really cool, I may have to try that sometime!

Here is the package I sent to Yulu.

Everything all together.

A close-up of the bag. I sewed shell buttons to a purchased canvas bag to cover up the logo. (Yay recycling!)

Here's the blanket. It's fleece on one side and tablecloth on the other. It ought to be at least semi-waterproof.

A journal that I bought. It has a clear pocket in the front for photos or whatever. I printed some photos I took as the craft and made the journal the frame. You can see the photos at my flickr. http://www.flickr.com/photos/9777587@N02/tags/natureswap/

A necklace that is supposed to be based on the theme of waterfalls.

See? Waterdrop shaped beads and stuff.

Knitted nautilis. This was the big item, because it took so long. I used knitty.com's "Nautie" pattern and stash acrylic. I liked him so much, I made one for me too! More info about nautili at ravelry. http://www.ravelry.com/projects/EowynUlysses/nautie

I had a lot of fun making everything and I hope Yulu likes it all!

Personal swaps are fun!

Fun websites to give for free: thehungersite.com, freerice.com, care2.com

Wanted: Sock yarn scraps for a shawl.
