21  Re: Let Me Make Your Craft II Pictures in The Swap Gallery by xmelinda on: March 11, 2005 08:09:25 AM
I can't wait to see pics, 706Designs!  My sister the overachiever -- she e-mailed me to ask if she should make more stuff because she didn't want her package to be too skimpy  Roll Eyes

Here, finally, are some pics of what IQJones sent me.  I apologize for the extreme cruddiness of the photos, being as they are too dark and mostly out of focus.  I was going to take better ones, but I haven't had a chance, and now hubby is out of town with the camera, so...  Roll Eyes


The shakers have old indian head / buffalo nickels on them, heads on one, tails on the other


The little book has my initials in shrinky-dink, and the file is faux rhinestones and a big button.  The bracelet is made of pom-poms -- it reminds me of old accessories from the 50s made of mink  Smiley


Note the bit of ribbon that was leftover from my wedding on the frame containing a picture of my wedding!  Awwwww.....  And in the other frame, my 2 boyfriends!  Johnny Depp and Orlando Bloom!  I think I'm allowed to put whatever pic I want in there, but...

Thanks again, Q!

Here is a scan of the flower I sent lilmissdogooder (sorry it's a bit dark):


I got FOUR pins from RachOftheJungle, but I still have to take some pics of them, which I will do ASAP.  I'm having another one of those weeks where LIFE is interfering with my crafting time  Roll Eyes

Thanks, Rach!

I was inspired by the crocheted genitalia here on Craftster to make this vibrator cozy for the Fruits & Veggies swap.  I think it turned out hilarious  Wink

I finally located our camera, so I've got pics!

CHECK OUT THE TOASTER BOOK!!!  You know you wanna do a page in this baby.  The pages look like TOAST!  IQJones really did a fab job.



1930s-40s movies deco by BKRenning, featuring page devoted to Casablanca (which was actually the first movie that came to my mind when I thought of this topic)



Lovely green-and-silver deco by kendaljay -- note the cute little envelopes.

These are all available to be worked in!  Also, there is the awesome Urban Legends deco, which I'm keeping secret for now because it's hilarious if it's a surprise when you see it  Wink

Wow, I got a REALLY COOL package today from stopmoshun!!  I'm sorry to see that my photos turned out crappily out of focus -- I'll try to replace it with better ones.


The shirt has a glittery pink peach on it (ooh, flirty), the postcards have different colors, and they are stamped using actual lemons (very neat), there are little grapes that you can attach to your sandals (something I would never have thought of), a fabulous glittery-sequiny pineapple painting that I love, and a really awesome cuff bracelet thing covered in all different sequins and little fruit buttons.

THANK YOU!!!

Geez, I was worried about not putting enough stuff in, but now that I see it all in a photo, I guess I sent a TON of stuff!   Don't worry, everyone, I obviously went a little crazy  Roll Eyes

IQJones, please use what you want and keep what you don't use.  And if you think of fabulous things for me but run out of time, please go past the deadline  Wink

BTW, that bit of green ribbon is leftover from my wedding, September 6, 1998.  My mother made all the bouquets and corsages and flower decorations and used that ribbon.  I have a bit more of it still, but I found that loose piece, so threw it in.  If you look closely, you might be able to see a large white bead hanging on the ribbon around the bouquet -- this is apparently an "African wedding bead" which was given to me by the proprietor of our local bead shop.  The piece of ribbon is not sacred to me or anything, I just thought it might be interesting to know.  Maybe.

Thank you SO MUCH to vonneguttermouth and crafty_dame!!  I ended up with a no-show partner, and I never got any pins, so crafty_dame sent me 2!  So very thoughtful, I really appreciate it  Smiley

The color on the felt one came out funky in the scanner, but it's actually sorta teal and lime green (which I love together):


I love them both -- thank you!

I got an absolutely AMAZING box  Shocked from Alison, who is teaching me how to make bath stuff:



She sent TONS of supplies, including all the salts and oils and everything, and also 3 colorings, 3 fragrances, molds to make bath bombs -- even the squirt bottle, masks and gloves and baggies!  Everything!  And the recipes for 5 different projects are printed out and *laminated*, since it's probably a bit messy.  I can't wait!  My friend who also crafts and also loves bath stuff is going to try it with me -- I'm a bit of a spaz, and I feel more confident with assistance  Wink

The sample products she sent are great, too -- caffeinated sugar scrub, eucalyptus bath salts, a solid bubble bath, and bath bombs in peppermint grapefruit and citrus.

Thank you SO MUCH Alison, for such an awesome kit!

Melinda

P.S. Note the lovely hand-stamped coaster in the foreground, made by Craftster dixie_terror  Wink

Yay, I got beads!!!   Grin  I was sort of worried that others had gotten beads and I hadn't, and then I thought probably my OLD address went out, which it turns out is what happened.  But the post office forwarded them, so the other packages should get to me, too.

I love how the 2 packages are so different.  First, got some really cute ones from purple_hippo:

I'm actually excited to have these, because I usually can't wear necklaces that are very heavy, but these are plastic so they are very light.  I think I want to make a crazy mixed-up necklace using ALL of these beads together.  That would be really cute!

Then got an amazing stash all in shades of blue and purple from blackcat:

Wow, I am IN LOVE with the huge ones!!  Just to give you an idea, that disc-shaped one is over an inch across!  Sexy!

Thanks to both of you!!
