1  Re: October, November, December 2015 Birthday Swap! Gallery and Discussion in The Swap Gallery by Riechan on: November 29, 2015 06:55:16 AM
okay! Mobile phone pictures it is!

Package from Alwaysinmyroom
She claimed me for a scarf!
When I opened the package I found a bunch of little and big gifts wrapped in lovely paper!
In her note she said she had some yarn left, so she made me a hat. Like that!
Here are the main players: the scarf and the hat.


close-up


The yarn is so soft, and the colour is just perfect!!! Burgundy/red/purple is my most favourite colour ever!! And now I have the perfect set to go with my coats (which are almost all black Cheesy perfect colour combination)

I'm only starting out with crochet and only can do the easy ones. Just look at these wonderful stitches!! I'm so in awe Cheesy


Here it is on me!


She said she wasn't sure if the flower was my taste, it certainly is my taste! I just LOVE flowers Cheesy

The extra's

Very sour candy!!! that middle package is dangerous! Alwaysinmyroom said she bought the 3rd one on the list of strongest sour candy. I'm glad she did, I think you can kill someone with the first one! haha Cheesy My boyfriend loves them too Wink

Package from Plaidpineapple

Plaidpineapple claimed me for cloth pads! I got a wonderful pair of lovely waterproof cloth pads where you can insert more if you want! She included two extra inserts as well!
I was so in need of these! And don't you just love the fabric she used! Cheesy Again, I LOVE flowers haha Cheesy
The mini one is adorable too! that checkered fabric is awesome!



Close up!


Thank you both for the wonderful packages and the lovely birthday wishes! You guys made my November month! Cheesy

2  Halloween party: decorations and food in Halloween Decor and Parties by Riechan on: November 02, 2015 06:43:48 AM
Hi everyone!
It's been a while since I posted a project but I really wanted to post this one!
Because my boyfriend's birthday is on the 30th of October and mine on the 9th of November,
we decided it would be cool to organize a Halloweeny Birthday party! And So we did!

Decorations:
I went all over the internet and gathered ideas that I liked (and asked my bf if he liked them too)
This is what we went for.
The bats are all hand cut and painted (because I ran out of black spray paint...) I tried to stick them on the wall as if they are flying towards you from the witches house. Did that work? They are all cereal box, cake box cardboard Cheesy Much easier to cut with scissors than the thicker ones.


Because we just moved in, we had a lot of left over cardboard boxes. The letters BOO are drawn and cut out of cardboard, then spray painted with black paint. I added spiderwebb to the painting and made 4 spooky candle holders.


These are made from mason jar type jars haha Cheesy I spray painted the inside with white paint and draw a halloween scene on the outside. I bought a few more of these from the thrift store (only 0.50) for Christmas decorations!



These are two tall drinking glasses which I put some transparent paper onto, drew faces and then put hot glue on the outside. Painted it black and done!


I'm a harry potter fan so when I saw our mirror, I went "wait a minute..."


Random spider webs


Onto the Food
First up are our Balls of dirt! (or as my bf read 'Balls of Diet' "those can be scary too") These are oreo plus cream cheese smashed together and shaped into little balls. They look horrible but taste quite good. Very heavy though.


Used Q-tips. I added an instruction to these snacks.
1. Take Q-tip
2. Apply wax
3. Enjoy
haha Cheesy These are marshmallows cut up into little pieces (we don't have mini ones around here) the sticks are white chocolate which makes knispers sounds when you eat it. And the wax is peanut butter.


Creepy rocky road. Ever since the mom of an English friend told me about Rocky Road I had to make it and this was the best occasion to do so!
It has peanut butter, dark and milk chocolate, marshmallows, crushed m&m's and sour worms.


Brains made from rice krispies and pink marshmallows. The red is icing. I bought food colouring but ended up not using it because the marshmallows were pink enough.
It looks gross when making plus my pot was full of marshmallow fluff. (Tip when your cooking pot looks like a disaster. Pour water into it, a little cleaning soap, add a lid and warm it 'till the water starts boiling, your pot will be squeaky clean without you doing anything!)


Chocolate coated apples.
The brown is milk chocolate, the green is white chocolate with food colouring.
These weren't that popular though... haha Cheesy


Then I also made chocolate cake and added some of the green and brown chocolate on top and made a swirley drawing, just because. No picture though...


Then costumes!
I made everyone dress up to fit the Halloween theme and had been asking what my bf wanted to be. He didn't have an idea so zombie it was! This is done on last minute. We took an old white tshirt. I cut it up, tear some holes in it and added green, brown, yellow and red paint. His face is done with a combination of regular make-up and face paint. The scars are made with tacky glue, leaving to dry and then applying on his face with eyelash glue. I added make-up to blend it in, and added lipgloss to give it that shiny look.

Ain't he pretty Cheesy


This glue of his neck wound didn't hold up very well because it was a place that moved very much but this made it even creepier, like he was actually loosing this flesh and rotting.

If you made it to the end of this gigantic post, thank you very very much for reading! I would love to know what you think! I had so much fun doing this as this was the first time I could decorate a place for this holiday! I can't wait for Christmas. Already want to start decorating! Cheesy

I received today from dessadoll!!! Gotta love fast mail!!

We agreed to swap 3 bookmarks. In my questionnaire I asked for a bookmark for my boyfriend too as his birthday is coming up at the end of october and I wanted to share the swap with him too!

These are the lovely bookmarks I got from dessadoll
My boyfriend got a dragon themed bookmark, just look at this awesome guy!! He's gorgeous!! I'm sure my bf will be thrilled with this one!! I'll let you know what he thinks about him when he receives it!
The other two are for me, a Hogwarts one, this is just too cute! My favourite one!
And the other one is detective themed which is great since I started to read another Agatha Christie novel! (and I was using memory to find the pages again which isn't as easy as I would like it to be lol)






Thank you so much dessadoll! I love them very much, these will be treasured for sure!! ^^

This is my last card! Received this from fancybutch!
She went with my Japan theme and choose to make a kawaii wood spirit! This is made from wood! How cool is this! She said her first card, which didn't arrive, was made from glass. Fancybutch, if you have a picture, please post it! I'm curious to see it!


And since artsycandice also received my resent card, here's a picture of them!
I chose her theme Hot Air Balloons and also made a robotcard for her son

9  Hobbit door, Octopus and birdhouse pendants in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by Riechan on: August 14, 2014 07:25:31 AM
Leaving behind my flower designs I wanted to try and use polymer clay for some other things
I really wanted to try and make a hobbit door (love the design of it!) so I just went for it Cheesy
The outcome made me really proud ^^; Nicest thing I have ever made I think Cheesy


Since the blue I wanted to use for a sky background for flowers was to dark, I turned it into underwaterthemed pendant
I had to redo the legs of the octopus because I forgot the suckers...


The third one was a birdhouse


And a picture for scale:


Thanks for watching! Comments and critiques are always appreciated!
