Jenicat, I love the necklace on the left. Those textured pearls are really cool!

I wanted to share a couple of action shots of my bath goodies Lapoli sent me. Not only do the smell great and make me feel super pampered, but they also look so nice sitting around my bathtub.

handmade washcloths, body oil, bath tea bags:

I put the bayberry sea glass in a bowl and it makes the bathroom smell great!

Oooh! Nice bath goodies! Bet it smells so yummy in there right now!

I took some action shots of the awesome wall organizer that Retro_Rose made me! The pockets on it were perfect and fit A LOT of things in them!

Just a whole shot of my small crafting area! You can see why I needed the organizer! Too much stuff and no space!

A closeup shot to show just how full it is!! It's FULL!!! I love it!

So thank you again Retro_Rose! I really love it and its perfect up!

for those who want to see more pics I added some pre-post cleaning pics in my gallery: https://www.craftster.org/pictures/showgallery.php?ppuser=115000&cat=500

I love the brown bottle of "forbidden knowledge" and the "nirvana" paintbrush!  Neato!

Lovely packages!  Great wall organizer - that would really come in handy for those little "bits" that get lost on a shelf.  And I really love that cabinet/shrine - very nice.

It's not that I don't want to swap, it's that I often don't have time.  But feel free to ask (especially if it's one that's not too time consuming).

The Mitten Project is a year of mittens! Each week a new mitten and you get to choose which ones should be knit. In the end three pairs will be given away to you readers.

I am awefully late in posting photos of the wonderfull package I got from Samsara! Which does not in the least reflect how I feel about it, cause it blew my mind. Samsara not only made great items for me, she also used inspiration from my wists without copying things one-to-one!
First a really great hat that is super slouchy and comfy and brown, a color I like(my coat is brown infact) but don't have enough things in.

One of Samsara's beautifully painted glasses to put a candle in though I think it is sparkly enough on its own. I have been eyeing these for some time!
This glass actually prompted a discussion with the bf about the possible decoration of any future shared flat...I won  Grin

I took the first two photos at home, but my room is dark. The rest of the photos where taken in the bf's parents garden, much better light!
Here's everything together:

A flowery crocheted cushion in my favorit color combo ever! And the theme continues with a cupcake pin cushion, needle book, measuring tape and handmade knitting needles. I love these all so much and have to find a project I can knit with these, so I can show them off at the next knitting group meet up  Cheesy
Missing is a "normal" pink measuring tape already packed away, because I won't use it as a measuring tape but as a handle for a bag I am planning  Wink
I have a not-so-secret love for matrioschka dolls and those two hair pins and the brooch will get much use! Especially since I plan on cutting my hair shorter again, so will actually need those then.
There's also a round piece of soap/scrub which Samsara made herself. She didn't put any kind of scent in it cause that's what I like!
And now, because I couldn't get over the sooooooooooo much better light in the garden a few close-ups:

But that was not all! She also made me these stitch markers from polymer clay that are tiny chocolate candies. One even looks like it has been bitten  Cheesy

Missing is a little wishing star, to tell a wish and then hang so it will be fullfilled. Even in the garden I couldn't get a decent photo of it. I already have a wish to tell it in mind  Smiley

Thanks so much for this great package Samsara!
It has been a fun swap with you, I loved making things for you!
