Here's the lovely parcel that arrived from Veganistmum today

Lovely witch garden sign which I had on my Wists list - it'll be going in the back garden as soon as I tidy It up this weekend.
It says 'Magick begins here' - love it!

Great crochet goddess 'windchime' protector of doorways and entrances which will hang over the door to my craft room.

Beautiful handmade notebook with nature bits and sewing on cover , and Samhain poem on inside...I'm going to use this for writing poetry in I think.

And a jar of jelly from a local farmers market - can't wait to try it.

Thanks Vera - loved it all ;0)

I just found out that my partner is gonna be out of town for the weekend and will not get her first box of goodies ... let alone the second one I sent, until Monday.  Well, I decided to send a teaser of something from the second box.  Now mind you, this is the thing that got smashed and I had to remake.

that is my almost 6 year old daughter on the dining table and you can see parts of the item sticking out around the edges ... just to give you an idea of the size Smiley .

It was sent in a box that was 36"x25"x11" and both my son and I had to carry it. It was not heavy at all .. just awkward to carry.

Blessed be and a blessed Samhain to you all!

Wow, the talent here never ceases to amaze me. I love the garden sign and the windchime protector. I think I will have to wist them both.  Grin

Now I usually tend to spoil my partners, but some of y'all this round have really out done me!  I sure hope I sent enough . . .

I did get my package, and as soon as I find my camera *eye roll* I'll post pics

a reversible alter cloth (that hester is admiring...)

a felt raven (i told her i love ravens and it is so cool!)

a really neat candle holder with the triple goddess symbol etched on it (there was a god one too but sadly in broke in transit which is why it is not pictured)

magnets and earrings, the pic doesn't show them so well but there are poly clay candy apples! im gonna wear them tonight when i go to a halloween party Smiley  oh and these came in some little brown and cream colored handsewn pouches too.

and finally some cool jars i can use to store my herbs in (with hester again bc i cant resist)

So glad you like everything.  I had so much fun making it all.  So sorry about the God candle holder.  I thought i had it packaged pretty good, but things happen.

Ok....Here are the pictures of the wonderful things I got from Hardyswanton....

First, she made me a lap blanket in my favorite print...leopard.  I thought you might want to see it in it's natural habitat....the mighty chair of power!!  Grin

Next a beautiful tote bag made with four fat quarters...it's reversible!!  I love it...it will be used A LOT!

Some "bat wing tea" in the coolest jar...which is red hot tea mix.  I will be having some this morning...just waiting for the teapot to whistle.  There were also two bags of candy...which barely made it out of the box so sadly I have no pictures of them  *L*

And last but not least....my absolute favorite thing....an apron made out of the cooooolest cat fabric.  She's been hoarding it for a couple of years and felt my level of weirdness was worthy.   Grin Grin   You have NO idea how correct and perfect it is for me!!!!

Modeled here by my husband (who is also a craftster member).  This apron now lives in my kitchen and will be used every day!

Thank you soooooo much.  I absolutely love everything!  I hope you liked everything in your package even half as much as I love mine!  You've been a great partner!

Woot Woot!

Edel was a generous soul to me. Here's my loot:

Beautiful card

My little Samhain raven witch, he's so cute!

My requested item-candle roll to keep candles safe! Thanks for the candles too!

Inside of:

Also a wonderful charm bracelet. Oddly enough, my bf wanted me to have a horn of Italy, it came with several!

Matching earrings I didn't get a good shot of:

An adorable shawl pin, perfect for a knitter:

The extras: We traded magazines, she also sent me knitting patterns and an Irish music cd, plus a pin that says Ireland!

And the yummiest extra, I asked for a regional treat....delish!

Thank you Edel! I had a blast!
