I received my last two ornaments today (both from Australia, that was super fast!) and they are gorgeous!

First, a gorgeous Steampunk doll from Harvey, along with a pendant and some Australian goodies! Also, she sent some pictures on a CD that I have to check out! Thank you so much! Also, I'll be emailing you a few pics, I was actually thinking of making a CD for you but my computer doesn't have a burner... so that didn't work!

Next, a gorgeous ornament from Ralph, it looks like a pocket watch! She also sent a gorgeous (resin?) pendant. Thank you so much!

I wanted to thank everyone for a wonderful swap... everyone has sent and now we just have to wait for everything to make its way!

Just got my final ornament today, so here they all are!

A shot of them all together:

The first is from Pogo. Love the polymer clay and the charms.

This one is from Bookstorebabe. It's base is a light bulb and there are tiny watch gears stuck to it. (Sorry it's a bit blurry)

She sent an extra in case the original one broke in shipment. So considerate! Smiley



This is from eukarya. The artwork is amazing, and I love the antique style.

This one is from Habitat-lady. I love the clockwork Christmas tree and the way she used clay on the glass ornament. Fantastic job!

This one is from ceemonster. Such a cute airship! Love the charms at the bottom as well.

The final one is the one I kept for myself.



Thanks so much for swapping everyone! To my partners, sorry I didn't include a note or anything. I just had a baby (who is 3 weeks old today Smiley) and was trying to wrap everything up between feedings. I loved swapping and hope to do it again soon!

I'm definitely open to personal swaps--pm me!

BSB - I love your airships and the lighbulb is so great!
Averia - holy cow to your embroidery! That is awesome!!
Alchamy513 - I love your crocheted blimp!
Harvey - your steampunk ladies are so neat!

Sadly today I received the final two of my set.
First, from Ceemonster - this adorable airship - love her use of clay and copper!
I am happy Pogo is in Service to Her Majesty's Air Ship!

And lastly, from Ashgrim this cool ornament with gears and snowflakes. I am truly in love with the key too -

Thank you so much to my wonderful swap partners! You all rocked!

Ashgrim, congratulations on your new little one!

I just got home from work, and the swap fairy had arrived! packages from Eukarya, Habitat Lady, Ceemonster, and Ashgrim.
Everything is fantastic.
A purple airship from Ceemonster, a steampunk dancer from Eukarya, a glass and clay creation from Habitat Lady, and a gear and key decorated lovely from Ashgrim. And of course earlier my cool star from Pogo. They're all amazing-I feel very spoiled.
My wonderful partners are being kind enough to post pictures for me.
Ladies, it was a pleasure swapping with you. Thanks so much.

So many beautiful items at once! It makes it too hard to give them all the comments they deserve. Everything has been amazing in this swap!

The last of my ornaments from ceemonster and Ashgrim. Sigh.  If there was ever a swap I wanted to be in year-round, this would be it.
From Ashgrim a wonderful ornament complete with gears and buttons and snowflakes.  And I love that big key at the bottom and the the way you wrapped it in wire. Thank you!

And Ceemonster sent an airship that commands the sky.  I'm proud to have her majesty's ship on my tree. Love the teal-metallic color.   Its beautiful, and thank you.

Thank you to Alchamy513 for a great swap!  You're a fabulous organizer!

Aw, you guys have been the best! I didn't have any problems... I think this was definitely the ideal swap all around. I'll most definitely be hosting again next year!

Also, I updated everything on the first page... if you've received or posted pictures and it says otherwise please let me know!

Here are the last of my ornaments!  I've had the flu this week so this is the first time I've been able to post.

Ashgrim sent this lovely ornament with steampunk details and keys.

Ceemonster sent me a beautiful airship with gear and key hanging from it,

Here's what I sent to Bookstorebabe - She's a lovely steampunk lady with goggles and wristbracers.
