Having a swap partner is absolutely awesome!

Hi friends, how are you today? Thank you all so much for the lovely and encouraging comments on my post concerning my things in the shop, the comments made me feel great! :)
During Indie Biz, I've got to know Claire from hearthandmade and we've decided to become swap partners and create something for each other which has to do with animals. It has taken the post some time to deliver the packages, but they've finally both arrived at their destination (unfortunately, one of the earrings I've sent to Claire broke during their journey). It is the first time I've done something like this (except sending gifts to friends) and I'm totally enthusiastic about what a great thing this is. :) Here you can see what Claire and I have sent each other (thank you again for the cute things and the amazing portrait of Mogli, I absolutely love it!)!

Here's first what I've sent to Claire, everything except from the parrot and the cat-postcard is of course handmade. :) The bird in the foreground is a brooch, more images can be found on my flickr account. :)

These are the cute things the postman has brought the day before yesterday. :) The portrait Claire has made of Mogli is gorgeous, isn't it? :)
