1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Craft Swaps / Re: Beltane Merrymaking - WWP Swap 56 (Signup thru April 1; send out April 22)) on: March 30, 2015 06:42:41 PM
Here's another idea to add to the list: lanterns.

I'll keep sign-ups open until I get home from work on Wednesday afternoon, but I know we're all itching to start making merry, so they'll have to close then. So any fence-sitters, now's the time to hop over and join us!

And that Beltane cake is brilliant! I love the little naked peg figures. Cheesy

While it may not be as awful as I think, I'm sure it's not not very good. But things that are utterly ruined when you turn off the light at night are sometimes just fine the next morning, and maybe a week shut away from the light in a small cardboard box will work wonders on this unattractive dotee, like a chrysalis for a caterpillar.

Sent today. It was probably the least successful swap item I've ever sent, but eventually you just have to give up and put it in the mail, for better or worse. I don't know what went wrong with this swap - I just got hung up on an idea that didn't go anywhere, and I couldn't move on to something that worked. Oh well...

Andrean, a Beltane cake is a wonderful, brilliant idea! I can't believe you're still using that miniature Maypole - the kids will need a larger one soon. And I trust you will put a picture of the boys in their horned headdresses on your blog - it'll be the cutest thing ever!

Welcome back LA-Fairy and edelC!

I'm so sorry, I'm WA-A-A-Y behind in communication here. So I'm going to check in and then go back and try to catch up on the thread. I've been struggling and struggling with this Great Idea I've got, and producing absolute dreck. So today I finally gave up on it and decided to choose a different idea entirely, so I went to Pinterest and looked at other dotees for ideas. Wouldn't you know it, it only took a few images before I realized how idiotically I'd been approaching this thing, and there was nothing wrong with my idea at all. As usual, I've been making it vastly over-complicated, and there's a perfectly simple way of approaching it that I hadn't even thought of.

So off to get it finished to send off tomorrow. The fact that I think I can start and finish in one day is a good sign! Wink

Is this M. and M.'s first trip away from their parents? It must be pretty exciting for them, though I'm sure they'll be so glad to be home again!

Ooooh! What a great technique, and a beautiful painting.

Mandykaye, we'd love to have you back, but it does sound like you don't need the added stress! I hope your parents get re-settled soon - it's a terrible thing to have happened. And Emily, as great as it would be to have you in the swap, your friend's needs are obviously greater. But maybe your needles will fly this weekend, and you'll be able to finish the afghans and join the swap!

Welcome to myloveasdeep, who's new to our Wiccan/Witchy/Pagan world. I think you'll get along very well here - people come and go, but we're a remarkably cohesive and supportive group.

Your colour choices were great - they look good together and will be beautiful in the sun. The zigging was a good solution. My friend in BC who does prayer flags pins them to the string with small safety pins for the same reason - they won't stay put.

10  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Easter / Re: Sorbian easter eggs - with quick how-to on: March 27, 2015 04:25:53 PM
Thank you for this! I'm Ukrainian, so I know about the drop-pull method of decorating, but this is different in many ways. And I like your tip about filling the blown eggs with dye to make them sink. I've tried emptying the eggs before dyeing them, but the fact that they float makes it very difficult, so I usually dye them first, then blow them out. (I only empty eggs if I'm mailing them to someone. Traditionally, Ukrainian pysanky are left whole and simply dry out over time.) But it's difficult to empty the shell without getting egg on the outside, and it causes the water-soluble dye to smear. This is a great way of avoiding that problem.

And thanks for posting the picture of your feather applicators with the ruler - they're much smaller than I expected!
