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 this quarter of the year, feel free to post pictures here!   Grin

Or browse previous galleries...

dichotomy and I recently did a nice little swap.

She very kindly sent me a set of size 7 bamboo DPN's and threw in some lovely teas for me to try as well  Grin

I sent her some bits and pieces(along with some Scottish munchies) which I hope will arrive soon.

Thanks dichotomy  Grin

Prepare for a pic overload, i recieved my MYB from Persephone Hazard today, and it was super amazing!

Firstly, a group shot before I unwound the ball! " sets of Candy notecards<3, chocolate, a match stick drawer and some interesting looking packets.

Inside the matchstick drawer were tonnes of cute charms and bits and bobs..

Look at all the pink! I love the bow charms so much!

In one of the interesting looking packets was this gorgeous smelling and looking soap! A pink heart with glitter! How adorable-I don't want to spoil it by using it!

In another packet was this soap, which smells equally as nice, and reminds me a little of flan!

My favourite thing though, was in a packet made of recyled plastic bags, and turned out to be these gorgeous bath bombs!

Look at the petals! They are so lovely, I am really envious of anyone who can do bath stuff, and seriously, this made my day, and I hadn't evene started on the MYB yet!

I started unwinding the lovely wool(pictures do it no justice!)..

..to find some lime grean shimmery nail polish! Mmmn, called watermelon.

A bit further on I got these lovely self injury awareness earrings!

And a lovely yarn ball pendant!

In procress of unwinding..

Some bugle beads, in yummy colours!

A gorgeous pink kawaii themed charm bracelet...

complete with an ice cream charm and this adorable glittery bear charm, amongst others!

More nailpolish, entitled blueberry!

A cute little stamped brown paper bag and a deer on a stick? (I have to confess, I have no idea what it is-sorry!) But it is cute!:P

More seed beads, in turquoise and raspberry pink, yum!

My favourite of the nailpolish..bubblegum!

A polymer clay cookie earring and ring set, which look super realistic!

In the centre was a cute little handpainted dolly (I love dolls, esp wooden ones!), which graced my shelf immediately.

The chocolate, yummy!

Included were chocolate crayons. Having never seen such extraordinary things I immediately opened a packet , and out spilled these paper tubes filled with chocolate, yum!

And a final picture of the wool, which I am going to turn into a lovely hat or scarf or something for myself, because I love the colours and it is remarkably soft!

Thank you so much for the awesome package Seph, I really enjoyed swapping with you! And I feel very spoiled, so the swap anxiety wasn't needed, at all!

I received the most amazing messenger bag ever from Barbolot today.  I made her an apron in exchange, but believe me, there's no doubt that I came out way ahead in this swap.  I feel like I need to send her something else.  Get ready, here comes the latest item on your wist...

Here's a close-up of the bee adorning the front:


and the inside which is just full of useful pockets:

And if that weren't enough, she sent along a little extra gift.  A great zippered pouch that will perfectly match a purse I received in the craft my theme swap:

I wish I could have taken pictures outdoors for better lighting, but that Georgia pollen is just too bad for my allergies right now.

Thanks Barbolot.  What a wonderful package!

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that she made the bag from recycled fabrics from a pair of slacks and two skirts... how cool is that?

I'm soooo glad you like the bag, gamemom42!  I lost sleep over that bag, worrying if you would like it! LOL!

I LOOOVE the apron you made me. . . it's so pretty:

The colors are great, and I especially love the details: the pocket, the rick rack and especially the curvy hem!  And, it fits my plus-sized self perfectly!

Thank you so much for swapping with me, gamemom42!
(And I'm sorry about the  crummy pictures... no natural light this afternoon.  There are wild fires in neighboring counties, and the smoke is so bad, we're not supposed to go outside, and it's all smoky/cloudy anyway!) Sad

ckchan made these for me a while back in exchange for some jewelry pieces.
Her wonderful bunnies made my Lana's Easter extra special.

I recently participated in 2 private swaps and I wanted to share the results, which are INCREDIBLE. My photos do not give justice to the incredible talent these two ladies have!!

I traded some embroidered hitchhiking ghosts (from Disney's Haunted Mansion attractions), similar to the ones shown in my needlework post here on Craftster.

From phoenixfiredesigns I received this GORGEOUS hand-made Tree of Life pendant. The wires are all hand-twisted and the "leaves" are made of rose quartz gemstones.

From Miss Disney I received some Haunted Mansion themed jewelry! There are tombstone earrings which have been hand-sculpted and stamped with "RIP" and a Madame Leota necklace. Leota's face is cast in green-tinted resin and soldered together to make her famous "crystal ball." The necklace is hung on a double chain with details of glow in the dark beads. I can't describe how much this makes my inner Disney nerd dance around!!

Thank you both for being willing to trade and for my WONDERFUL gifts!

will you take me to gang practice? yis?
