1  Re: Christmas Stocking Swap Rd. 10 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by chase_acow on: December 06, 2014 03:37:08 AM
Everything has looked so good so far! I don't know how y'all are waiting until Christmas, I couldn't have. The snowman painting is so cute!

I'm a terrible person for not posting earlier, because I received such an awesome, well made, and thoughtful package from SheridanLA! She stalked my pinterest and really tailor made everything I could want for stocking stuffers and presents! She is amazing and I was _so_ lucky to get her. I hope you like your gifts nearly as much!

I also have to apologize that my pictures are crappy. My roommate has the real camera so I was stuck with my phone which does not do justice to the very pretty fabric and items Sheridan sent.  :  )

I love the stocking, it is perfect, and I know I'm going to have a hard time putting it away after the new year. The Lord of the Rings theme is perfect, the fabric is pretty, and the stitching is wonderful. I tried to make it better in my image editor, but I couldn't make it good enough. If you took pictures, Sheridan, please post them.



A pic of everything together:



There is a garland of holiday stars that I super love, a Star Wars cross-stitch that sums up my home, a to-go tea/mug carry bag, mug rug, and soothing mask all in my preferred color of orange. (The mask smells really wonderful, I'm glad you went ahead with the lavender!) There is also a Doctor Who necklace with wings and a "Don't Blink" tag, an orange glittered, wooden cut-out of my last name (the glitter has gotten everywhere, just as I like it). Not shown are some magnets up my fridge already, and some candy I've already chowed on. :  )




I admit, I asked for a marked gift that I could save and open on Christmas, but everything else was so wonderful, that I couldn't stand to wait. Sheridan again right off my pinterest, made a doily dreamcatcher, and it is going right up with the rest of my collection as soon as I get a moment. It's very lovely.



And finally, something I'm wearing right now, a fandom bracelet. It has all my favorites on it: Game of Thrones, Zorro, Captain America, Mass Effect, The Hobbit, Doctor Who, and Lord of the Rings!



Thank you and I want to apologize again that I got caught up in work stuff and had to delay opening and sending to you! I hope you have a wonderful holiday season!

I recieved from my partner, rantyhippie, on Saturday I think, but I couldn't sit down and post pictures until now. Thank you so much, it's all very awesome.  :  )

So here is a plushie Groot, a needle Groot, a Han Solo, a quote from the movie The World's End, and a Yoda hat.



I thought the Yoda hat probably ought to be showed off better. Shipley helped.



Thank you for being a great swap partner! The gallery looks so good, everyone made such neat stuff!

Wizards_Pupil!  :  )  Thank you so much for swapping with me! I love everything you sent, and I'm very sad that I didn't get to post pics until now. The tablet case you sent is getting a good workout going back and forth to work with me. This is my very first hoop, and it now has a place in my geek corner, along with Thorin. He looks wonderful, you captured him awesomely. I'm plotting what I should do with the dragon, but I've worn the earrings already. I'm saving the book for a day that's not too hot, so I can go out and lounge in my new hammock and read it outside. I figure that's really the way Tolkien should happen.  \0/

Howdy all! Great job everyone, this gallery looks wonderful and y'all are so talented!

I received from milkeway, and I'm so happy! Thank you so much! I'm so very glad that we got to swap together. I hope you enjoy what I sent your way!

Renly and Sansa peg people. They are adorable and so well done. Sansa and Renly are two of my favorite characters.


"So many vows...they make you swear and swear. Defend the king. Obey the king. Keep his secrets. Do his bidding. Your life for his. But obey your father. Love your sister. Protect the innocent. Defend the weak. Respect the gods. Obey the laws. It's too much. No matter what you do, you're forsaking one vow or the other.


And our favorite: My very own House Sigil from a doodle I drew at work one night.  :  ) It's so great and I can't wait to put it up somewhere.

Wow! These crafts are all so awesome! I'm a little covetous of all the hoops, but the Smaug one my have stolen my heart.  :  ) I can't imagine doing that jacket, I would have been super nervous just to start it, but it looks great. The Witch King is adorable too, if Witch Kings can be adorable. I can't wait to see what else pops up.

I opened up my package at work yesterday, so it doesn't have the best lighting or camera because I just quick snapped with my phone. Sorry!

Here is a dwarven treasure box, Kili's runestone, and a Rohan banner/bookmark.



Thank you, ErinGoCraft, for swapping with me. And thank you, Wizards_Pupil for organizing!

I received from pearljam94 the other day, and the cookies are already gone.  :  )  There was yummy peanut butter and chocolate chip cookies. I made my roommate taste test because there wasn't a note. She only pretended to die for a minute before she gobbled up the rest.

My partner sent me a very pretty mug rug, the first and hopefully not last that I will add to my collection, and a pair of beaded earrings. Thank you so much!

7  First Swap - Achievement Unlocked! \0/ in The Swap Gallery by chase_acow on: October 01, 2013 07:34:49 AM
So, I can't tell y'all how happy I am with my first experience with this site, and I wanted to thank you for not making it too scary. I'm happy with what I sent, and I'm super excited with the package I received, because I never would have made either of these items.  :  )  That's my favorite part, reaping the benefits of other peoples' skill and interests.

Thank you so much FreakieGeekie! I love the TARDIS pen holder - though even she isn't big enough on the inside to house my pen addiction. And the caution symbol makes me super happy.  I'm thinking about attaching it to a small flag that I can hang up on the outside of my room whenever I start on my writing bender.

Not pictured is an orange and black yarn bracelet that had already migrated to my GameDay accouterments and the entire colored pen set that will come in handy for not taking and doodling.
