Kodama swap

This my second swap, a kodama (handmade swap of Miyazaki style from the film Princess Mononoke.). A kodama (木霊, 木魂, or 木魅) is a spirit from Japanese folklore, which is believed to live in certain trees (similar to the Dryad of Greek myth). Cutting down a tree which houses a kodama is thought to bring misfortune, and such trees are often marked with shimenawa rope.I have received mine from Jennifer from USA, totally love it. It is so adorable and so soft. Thank you Jennifer for this wonderful Kodama stuffie.

I have also made one from crochet for my partner Elaine from the states. Hope she like it as much as I love it.

Swap O Swap

New found hobby : Swapping!!!!

I found an interesting swapping place through introduction by a forum friend. Now, I am really hooked.

My first swap is a Profile Surprise which requires me to send 3 items to my partner, Destiny in the States. Instead of sending only 3 surprise I sent her 5 surprises. I really hope Destiny would like it!

Here's the goodies I sent last month, hopefully the parcel reach you soon.

A red crochet mushroom with pearly bead and crochet bracelet specially made for Destiny

A cupcake made with felt and with a face for Destiny's shop mascot

And this is the surprises (+ miniature cupcake where the pictures are not taken) that I have sent for the profile surprise swap.

I can't wait to receive my profile surprise from my other swap partner as Swap-bot swapping lands you with different swapping partner that you send to and receive from.
