1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: IYP 10: The Craftster Cotillion Gallery! on: November 23, 2008 05:09:31 PM
I recieved from pogo! I love her, by the way.

Pogo and I worked in a scheme where we had vauge list of criteria to meet. These included things like, something local, something litterary, something psychological, something sewn, senders choice, and a few more that I can't quite remember. (I know, thats bad.)


A rapunzel scarf in my favourite shades of pink and black. Very snuggly, very warm, and very loved. *is wearing it now*



Extra's! Piratical and steam-punk-esque thingumabobs. I love them. The hangers and being decorated for the uni-flat tree, and then taken home for a place of honour on my folks tree. It are law, as stated in piratical articles.

Linked!
The above is linked because its not suitable for younger people. I have an on-going joke with my flat-mate that Freud's manbits come alive at night, looking like a zombie, in search of young women's mind to violate and corrupt. I have no idea where it came from, but it amuses us to no end, so Pogo made me a Freud's Manbits Hand-puppet (my something psychological, as it be Freud.)




A sewn wrist cuff with buttons and clock fabric. Steam-punk and practical for me. I can't wear jewellry because I'm allergic to nickel, so its really hig-priced metals or titanium for me. Now I have a snazzy wrist thing to wear and not worry I'll break out! I love it.



Another thing I'm allergic to is bugs, especially Lady-birds. I do however, think they are adorable. This is a crochetted Lady-bird book-mark, designed to be large so it will be useful in my text-books when I'm revising. I've already used it to make out a page with some relevant information regarding my final year project! Its also very soft and I find myself snuggling it regularly.


Hand-made cards with pictures of thing Pogo had taken herself. I love them! I don't want to use them because they're adorable and I think they should be framed instead Cheesy Also, my knee. Apparently, it likes to get in the picture.



A handy tool belt! okay, not a tool belt. Pogo researched Victorians and found that they often wore little bags under their clothing. So she made me this! It was her first attempt at embroidery (and it is WAY neater than mine) so it has a steam-punk gear on it. I use it for catching, holding and otherwise carrying cotons, scissors, needles (in a book), measureing tape and china-markers (one black one white) around with me when I'm crafting now. It's become a permanent attachment to me sewing kit, and I honestly don't know how on earth I managed without it! Its made from some really funky, study material too.

I think thats everything... Pogo, let me know if its not! I do love it all though. I can't believe how mcuh she sent me!

Haha! I recieved from my partner a while back, but have forgotten to take pictures for a long while.

Anyways, this is what Midnight sent me. Oh, there were some pices of eight (chocolate coins) but they were munched by hungry seadogs (AKA, eaten by me) as soon as they were spotted.


Piratical socks (which are very yummy, and something I'm always in need of!)


A truly wench-worthy corset (I've not had the pleasure of wearing it yet, but I do love it. Please ignore the washing on the radiator in the BG ^^")


A piratical brooch. Its difficult to see, as my camera and light resources are evil and won't take decent pictures. Its lacy and has charms of piratical type things though. I'll get a better picture of this after xmas when I have my new camera. I've worn this frequently on ym jacket to and from... well, everywhere!



Okay, these officially are my favourite things in the package. PIRATE BOOTIES! They're made from black and white (indeed, my camera should be thrown overboard) damask fleece.The feet are outer-lined with a sturd leather/ette material. I wear them very much, and have even taken them with me to the labs when I had to spend all day there working. I got a few amused looks, but nobody really said anything. I think they're jealous. Plus, I LOVE damask, its one of my favourite things, so it was a real bonus.

Thank you so much Midnight!

Due to current personal situations, crafting time is limited and I wont be able to hold this til new years. Is that okay? I might suggest maybe having the sign ups some point in december, with december/january some time to craft (4 weeks craft time I think, so as not to push everyone for time) with sendouts in January after the xmas hustle has died down.

OR

Sign ups end of december, craft through january, sending late jan/early feb.

I was thinking of having it as a points system, with crafts up to 6 points. Everyone okay with that?

I'm still happy to host it though!

I sent last week, but it got given back today with a stamp saying "insufficient postage" which is rubbish because I had it weighed. The royal mail has a vendetta against me it seems. I think I'll have to start sending packages by carrier pigeon.

I did recieve from my partner though! I'm just going to message her and let her know. Will post pictures ASAP.

I recieved a "while you were out" card today. This is the only one I'm actually expecting at the moment, so I'm certain our lazy postman just filled that in. He did it for my flat mate and she was in when the postie came, so you'd think that he'd have rung the bell! *curses royal mail*

I'll have to arrange for collection from my post office. Hoepfully it will be there by monday.

(PS, I sent on thursday, so I hope it arrives soon!)

Ack! I'm sorry mamaedgar! I actually meant to post the pictures I took of Ruki and Lolita. Then I got distracted with crafty things, and then family issues. I'll try post pictures real soon. I'm on my uncles PC at the moment and my pics are at my uni flat on my laptop. I really do love them. I'm really glar you like yours too Smiley

oh guys that really sucks! I got flaked on in my very first swap and it really disheartened me, but then i figured that it would be better for me to go out and proove i'm not worth flaking on. I know I'm lax in communication sometimes, and i send out later sometimes, but more often than not, I feel really guilty about it and put a little extra into the package in hope that my partner will forgive me!

If i had spare moments, I'd offer to angel for you guys, but right now I'm swamped!

I love the dolls so far!

I'll post pictures of the two that mamaedgar sent me tomorrow, after i've let my batteris charge a little (I know, i'm delayed. I assure you though, they kick rear end!)

o.O That swag is AMAZING! I am in awe! I love the birdhouse. I think I want one of my own for in the garden.

Sorry about being so absent, but as you can see, I am indeed alive!

(Also, I LOVE THE SKULLS! I so want them for my room here, simply because I have a collection of skulls going on)
