1  Re: Key Themed Swap Gallery (Send outs 12/8) in The Swap Gallery by noxluff on: December 09, 2010 10:12:24 PM
I received the best swap EVER today from Innaura!  Everything she sent was amazing!!!!

Here is everything that I received:

KEY SHAPED SCARF in orange and green, purple arm warmers, antique skeleton key necklace, a spoon bracelet, TEA, and letter!  The letter was great, it tied everything that she sent together by welcoming me to "the sisterhood of the key."  (I hope that is right, it is past midnight and I got it yesterday morning.  I am at work now and don't have the letter!)

Just the key shaped scarf.  How awesome is that?  If you said "super awesome," you are correct!

The spoon bracelet with tiny skeleton keys that says "carpe diem" on it, and the antique key necklace.

EVERYTHING was just wonderful, Innaura!  Best swap ever!!!!  Love love LOVE it!

Okay, I got a picture of the OTT I received!  Cheesy

The hat and scarf are orange and purple, which are my wedding colors.  My anniversary is Sunday, so I consider this sort of an anniversary gift!  I LOVE it!

How awesome is that?  SUPER awesome is the correct answer!

Thanks gerbilgal!!!!!

Awesome stuff everyone!  Cheesy

catpants told me she received today and she said I can go ahead and post pictures, so here I am!

I claimed her for some art and something for her patio.

The art-

I wasn't too happy with it myself because it came out more plain than I had planned.  I think it will look better framed, but I didn't have a frame for it.  She said she liked it, though.  Cheesy

I decoupaged a birdhouse for her patio using random scrapbooking papers, Richard Scarry illustrations and both regular Mod Podge and outdoor Mod Podge.


Right side

Left side


Yup, I decoupaged a birdhouse onto a birdhouse, I am cool like that.

Sorry for all the large pictures!

The birdhouse was a bit difficult to decoupage but I had fun doing it.  Cheesy  Glad you liked it, catpants, I was a bit worried about it!

I received from lylmousy today!  :3  Here is my loot!

The jar looks like a little goldfish bowl- I love it!

Picture of everything that was in the jar.  Lots of goodies!

I like these beads, they remind me of fish.  Cheesy

A close-up of all the beads n' things.

I got lots of neat stuff- I can't wait to put it to good use!  Thank you, lylmousy!  I hope you like mine- you should get it by tomorrow, I think, since I sent a day after you.

I received from dianamariemtv today!  I didn't think it would get here so quickly so I was very excited and pleasantly surprised!

The card she sent... she wrote me a nice letter.  :3  The envelope there is actually stamped with a bird stamp she carved herself!

She sent me this adorable octopus embroidery.  It has a wire on the back so I can hang it!

A stamp carving kit!  It includes everything I need to start making my own stamps as seen in the picture.  I'm VERY excited about this and can't wait to get started on some stamp carvin'.  Cheesy

Thank you soooo much dianamariemtv!  I love it all!

Kate AKA yourlittlerabbit received, and even though I didn't take a picture of the whole package I sent (oops!) I can at least post a picture of the necklace.

The whole package contained: the necklace, some magenta colored fleece fabric, some chocolate covered cookie dough bites, stationary, and a card I made.

It was inspired by this necklace I saw on her etsy favorites:  http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=9805979

I made a few mistakes because I easily get frustrated, but I think I learned a few lessons that I can remember the next time I make something similar.  I have a friend who wants me to make her one, and I would like one for myself!

I had fun making it!  I want to make more and see how detailed I can get.

Glad you liked it, Kate!  :3

I received from Kate aka yourlittlerabbit!  Let me tell you, she is awesome and I just LOVE what she sent me!  I haven't sent to her yet, which makes me feel guilty since she sent me something so lovely.  I just hope she likes what I send her once it is finished.  Very close to finishing up, Kate, it'll be on its way soon!   Smiley

She made me this ghostie bag for my supplies!  Isn't it adorable???

The inside of the bag, you can see the two pockets she made in there. :3

All the other goodies she sent me!  A card, a cute pumpkin candle, some dark chocolate (that's about half of it because I consumed the other half already XD), some crafty mints, and the sweet skull and crossbones fabric she used to line the inside of the bag.  If you haven't noticed yet, I LOVE Halloween!  Cheesy

Thank you sooo much, Kate!  A package will be on its way to you soon, and you will not be disappointed!

I'm finally posting what I received from QuiltersBlock!  Welp, I got a little bit of everything! 

Picture of all the contents of the box.  Everything from knitting needles to buttons- and of course some fabric that I love!

Close up of the stuff that was in a ziplock bag.  Lots of goodies I can use!  I love love love those black and white buttons.  I will find a use for everything!  Cheesy

I am not quite sure what this is, but it has some interesting things on it.  Maybe QuiltersBlock can give me the details?  It has a lot of charms and things on it.  It's neat!

A cute pincushion!

A book on making cards, it has some really cute ideas I will use in the near future.   Grin

Thank you QuiltersBlock!!!

Okee doke, time for me to finally post!

I sent a Hello Kitty Mermaid to my swap partner, but she flaked on me.  It is made of very soft fleece!  Here is a picture of the stuffie I sent:

I know it's a bit plain, but it was only the second stuffie I've ever made!  Also, along with the stuffie I sent Valentine's candy and a felt broken heart pin, and it was sewn to look like the broken heart was stitched up.  I didn't take a picture of any of that because I thought she would once she got it, but that of course never happened.

Our lovely organizer, gammerus, was kind enough to angel for me!

The stuffie she sent me is the one on the left, with the awesome bow.  I absolutely ADORE this, it's got that creepy-cute quality that I love.  It's perfect for me!  Cheesy  It is standing beside the first stuffie I ever made, a sock bunny.

Close-up of the bow.

Thank you again, gammerus, for taking the time to make me something this rad.

I'm having trouble coming up with a good name that suits her, maybe because I'm working third shift tonight so I'm tired.  XD  Any ideas fellow craftsters?
