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.

Hmm, yes, I was wondering what was going on in the pics on the necklace. I saw a mouth...well, I love it all, whatever it is. Those magnets are AWESOME. I heart picture marbles.

I was so afraid that I would get a bible-thumping uber-Christian, so I feel very fortunate for who I got. I can imagine how bad things could have gotten. At least it was a learning experience and nothing horrible happened to you.

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

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!

THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!! I love everything! You took so much special time and energy to make it all. I feel very special. Thank you again!
oh I also ment to say I am changing my altar tomorrow (the 13- My birthday)! so I can put all of my new goodies on it. I put the stars and sun in my car. 2 are hanging from my ceiling and one on my turn signal lever. Yay!! Thank You Thank You!!!

Am I the only one left to receive?

Super geek, did the package get returned or stolen? If so, I'm going to hunt down the delivery person that screwed up. Luck in sending = not so good.

It got returned.  Never fear, it is repackaged and awaiting delay.  PLease, PLEASE accept my utmost appoligies.  I am horrible.  I hate myself.  I'm sorry.

I'm back!  Older, wiser, and better at crafting Smiley.

Don't worry so much, I had my package to Andi sent back from Canadian customs so I totally understand. Nice to see the system didn't eat it. I'm wishing the package a safe delivery.

No worries, content and happy and all that.

What are the chances of a round 3??  I'm really sorry I missed this.
