Tudor Swap Package Update of Crafted Items Sent

I've been way behind on my blogging due to some family health issues & life in general taking over my free time to liesurely sit with my coffee & put my thoughts out there. I even quit coffee for awhile, but am now happily back to indulging in it again. I have a lot to blog about too...so expect an overflow of posting in the next few days!
I did wrap up the Tudor swap a few weeks ago & received an amazing package from my partner. Here are the things I made for her in case you were wondering how they turned out.

First, I ended up scrapping the x stitch King Henry VIII project because it would've taken a couple months to finish. I still plan on finishing it because it's so dang neat looking, but I need to just dabble at it without stressing over a deadline. This is the replacement project...a mixed media portrait done on canvas in acrylics, oils, and embellished with irridescent medium, feathers and a faux pearlescent gem.

Then we have the charm bracelet in it's entirety. I loved this so much I ended up making a similar one for myself! I adore those portrait charms so much.

I used an extra charm of Queen Elizabeth I to make a coordinating ring.

Finally, here is a resin glitter heart charm with a regal looking crown which I turned into a keyring. I couldn't resist crafting a little glittery something as an extra.

This was one of the most fun swaps I've ever had the pleasure of crafting for & I'm so pleased with how everything turned out...especially after having to scrap the first project & switch gears right in the middle like that.

Best. Swap package. EVER!!! I swap every now and then on Craftster, and have really been wowed a couple of times by what I've received. I have to say, though, if I ever received a package as awesome as this one, I would be completely blown out of the water.
