I recieved!! I love everything!! Thank you so much!! Please post pics if you can. I don't have a digi. 
Shocked Beautiful stuff!  Shocked I am re-doing my altar tonight with all of my new stuff!!! Yay!

Yay! i'm so excited! I did take pics, and I've uploaded them to craftster now (I didn't before, as I was afraid that you might somehow see them and spoil the surprise), and will post them on here as soon as I can -- I need to run out the door for a Girl Guide (Scout) meeting now... I'm so glad you like it!

Okay, the pictures! I did this as mainly a Yule-ish altar, as Erica said she liked purple, I had a ton of purple fabric kickin around, and purple doesn't seem very Samhain to me:) So yeah....

This one shot is of everything -- some of the things were bought,like candles and so on, so I didn't take individual pics of them:) I included some shells and stuff, cuz I'm right on the ocean, and I think that they're super cool. One of them is an oyster shell that has the lid, so it makes a little box -- I found a few of these at the beach at the camp I was at this August, and I thought of this swap right away!

These two are of the same item - the offering bowl is reversable, with purple fabric on one side, and silvery on the other, with my fav silvery beads on the top.  Inside one shot is a peice of raw jade that I picked up - it's BC jade, so even though it's not really a Yule-ish stone, it's still cool

Ooh, le chalice. I just decorated a goblet I found, with ribbons and beads in the colour scheme:). They're attached with a larks head knot, so the ribbons can be switched for different sabbats, too.

Here's the altar cloth I made to (hopefully!) fit one of Rakuette's altars -- silver top and purple aprony bit. I also made a pillow cover, that fits on a standard sitzed bed pillow, of matching fabric, but forgot to take a pic.

Stars and Sun decorations : I love these beaded things; I made them with my Girl Guides in the spring, and made some for this because I love them so much:) They're more symbollic of the sabbat -- longest night of the year, with stars in the sky, and the sun growing in strength after the night.

And then I sent two items that aren't really altar items:

A set of runes, made out of rocks I picked up at the beach in the nights leading up to a full moon:)
The markings aren't actually that bright; they're reflecting off the flash:). And then a brown satiny bag to keep them in.

And last but not least, a drawstring bag for her tarot cards, featuring a pic of Athena I found online, embroidered onto purple taffeta with silver thread, with silver lining (This is my most favorite fabric ever -- I have about 8 yards of it I scored at a going out of business sale, and am going to make a victorian outfit with it:) I hope you liked it, Rakuette!) I think that this is one my favorite swap items!

My stuff! I actually got it last weekend, but being in college and working 15 hours a week have seriously hampered my time to sit around and play with my camera. So here are the goods:

Everything: soap with Goddesses on them (one is more earthy, one is more celestial. I love them both) a unakite necklace with picture marbles on them with Goddess-related pics in them. A case with magnets in it (the little round thing) and a plaque with he goddess symbol.

The magnets, though this is a bad pic of them. They actually have pictures of (I'm assuming) Persephone. They are to go on my mini-fridge.

Close-up of the bottom part of the necklace.

The plaque in action, above my bed. I now sleep in a bunk bed. Yeah, it's great.

My roommate actually liked the stuff. She's really understanding of everything. I seriously lucked out with her.

My alarm clock still holds a grudge from the time I threw it at the wall

I'm so glad you liked everying Miss_Westenra.  The necklace glass marbles were made from a picture of Persephone.  The only real clue is that she's eating a pomagranate in the center marble.  The magnets are various goddess figures that I thought looked nice. Smiley

You are lucky with your roommate.  I didn't fair so well when I was in college and it was tense at times.  But then again I did learn valuable things about human nature as well that semester.
