1  Re: Paper and Ephemera Swap Round 10 Gallery - Send-out Nov. 18 in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by Zalphinian on: November 18, 2013 11:53:59 PM
To start with, the adorable little card that OnyxNox sent along with her package:


Next, a collection of stamps and old post cards.


Vintage letters and cards! These are so very beautiful and amazing!

Old pages from books and magazines. She's right, some of the pictures and ads are beautiful in image and word.


There are some gorgous old magazine pages and some adorable stickers.


For the record, I love this map! It was one of my favorite items in the whole package, which is saying a lot considering how much I love just about everything in this one.


At this point I'm realizing I have over 20 pictures in my attempt to show everything. I'm not sure everyone want's to see all of that, so I'm going to start giving highlights. If I was wrong and others want to see every little thing, I'll happily go back and post more.

Kitty Ribbon!!! OnyxNox really took me at my word that I loved and adored cats.


Tiny happy kitty statues! These are really, really small! I really can not stress that enough. When I saw them for the first time, there may or may not have been squeeing to be heared.


I'm really looking forward to the fact that my boyfriend will be using the tiny little cat embellishment under the Hello Kitty tin (too cute!) to make me a necklace. I'll have to share what he does once it's done. Though it probably won't be until his classes let out for the semester.
I should also note those stickers arrived on a day when I was really not feeling well and in a lot of pain. Their messages were very timely and helped to perk me up.


With this last image, I'm thinking I'll have to make a scene with these embellishments. Not sure what all will be in said scene, but it's going to be a lot of fun playing around until I find something cute and amusing.

Sorry all about the delay. It seems the (I'm possative) beautiful and utterly amazing house KosmicGirl sent me has gotten lost somewhere in the abyss of US Customs. I'm still holding out hope that someday it will magically appear in my mail box, but until that time Loves2Experiment graciously stepped in and sent me one of her extra's, so we wouldn't have to deal with the issue's that sometimes arise from international shipping. KosmicGirl was 100% ready to send out a second house though, for which I can not say I'm anything less than grateful. So a big thank you to both ladies for their willingness to step up when there was a bit of a hiccup.

Got the house almost a week ago, got it glued together, then just kept forgetting to get the darn pictures while it was still daylight out! Unfortunately daylight was needed because without it the pictures just came out way to dark.

Now, on to the house!


As you can see, this is one of the Emily Dickenson houses. She is one of my favorite poet's so this works out nicely.


You have to love the cute little door and the little house numbers.


This particular quote is fitting. I've had to move a lot, and it's always amazed me how quickly a place I moved too starts to feel like home. So many people seem to take forever to build that level of connection and just plain homeiness, but for me a place to lay my head is just about all I need.


Adorable little flags!

Okay, I think I've finally figured this all out. So, Im starting with my first house to receive, the one from Teag, which I think of as my little mini castle. Smiley

When I first opened my envelope, this is what awaited me. Isnt the holder just ingenious?


Heres what the house looks like when completed. Arent the front door and little window just adorable?


I love the little picture frames she put in for windows on each side. Totally made my day when I saw those!



Finally theres the back of the house and another one of those awesome handmade windows.



Next we move on to the house made my Allwaysinmyroom. Surprise, surprise, I loved it! Its got a nice little sea side theme. First, she made me this pretty little case to protect the house in the mail.


Next we have a close up of the sea shell walk way she made. Yes, those are real sea shells. How cool is that?!


Heres the front of the house once its all assembled. Isnt it gorgeous?


Heres what the right side looks like. Notice the awesome wave roof she made? I thought that was a perfect addition.


Yes thats another real sea shell. I also want to point out the hand painted scallop edging.


I have to say this is my favorite side. Why is that? Its because I simply adore watching Koi swim around in their pond. Its so serene, and I love having that incorporated into the house. Its like Alwaysinmyroom is psychic!

4  My first completed cross-stitch (Cross cross stitch) in Needlework: Completed Projects by Zalphinian on: June 06, 2013 08:27:48 PM
While I have started another cross-stitch project before this one, this is the first one I ever managed to finish.

The reason I decided upon this particular cross is because in the church in which I grew up, the Presbyterian Womens group had given a member of our church a gift of a cross-stitched cross almost identical to this to one of our members. When that church closed it's doors earlier this year, I wanted something to remember that church by, and all the memories it had given me growing up. Since I had just started to cross-stitch, I decided to make my own pattern based upon the work that had hung in the narthex of the church all those years. This is the result.

Needless to say, I learned a *lot* while making this piece.
