Now that everyone has received their gifts, I can safely post pictures of what I gave and received. It was really fun! First I’ll show what I sent to my people…
This first one is for Altermyworld, and it features a handstitched Kobo cover, 3 sewn ornaments, 2 ATCs in requested themes, and a 4×4″ of her new puppy Bella (by Phrixy) and a butterfly also by Phrixy.
The Kobo cover has a mermaid charm, beads, and a fringed spine that took forever! But I love how it came out.
And this is what I sent to Siren: A Dalek tea wallet with teas and sugar, a Whovian Prayer wall hanger, a couple sewn Dr Who ornaments, and earrings by Phrixy. I love the tea wallet, and may make some for sale. It’s the Dalek from the episode where they’re in service to Churchill, and one was serving tea. It made me lol. For real.
And now I’ll show you the goodies I got! Loved it all!
From Dina54 I received: A Bastet illustrated prayer, a 4×6 for my Crow album, a Luna and a Snape ATC, Stardust clear glitter gel pens, Skor chocolate bars, and some little Christmas tags that will help me make a wee Christmas album at some point. I also used the wrapping paper to start another album, but that’s another story for later… The Bastet prayer made me cry. It’s just what I need, and I read it often.
And last (but not least), the cool stuff Altermyworld sent to me. Normally you don’t get the same sender/receiver, but I guess we must have asked for each other. Hahaha!
She sent me the following (sorry the photo isn’t so great): a handmade journal with lots of cool pages, a spider made of beads and wire (the gold blotch on the journal), 2 Twinkling H20s, 2 Micron pens, some dead watches to take apart (woot!), and a handmade necklace, along with a card she created.
Aren’t I lucky? I really got some amazing things. I can’t wait for the Secret Solstice swap coming next. So fun to see what people make for you, and to try to come up with cool things to send out.
