1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Disposable camera swap 5 Swap Gallery on: August 27, 2008 08:33:22 AM
Yay!  I am so glad you like everything!  About the dossier (heehee, I love that word), I am so glad you like it.  I love context, and I figured you would, too.  But I felt like a little girl when I was decorating the cover with markers, hahaha!  (So I think it's cool that you have given the folder such a grown-up name! Wink )

The frame is totally to match!  I'm glad it does IRL.  Though I have to admit I was a little confused, and I thought that was your living room.  (Too much looking at the pictures, not enough reading, duh!)  Still, I'm glad it goes with!

And I'm so glad you like the neon!  You sent moving-camera neon as well, so you know how it works already, but I have never done that with the camera before.  And the first one happened quite by accident.  One of my "assistants" (DS) bumped me while I was taking pics of the wave neon at the aquarium and, ooooh!  Such fun!  (He took the last green one himself!)

seriously, next time I'm in your part of the country, expect a visit

Oh, yay!  You are sooo invited!  (And I know you travel -- I'm serious about this!)  Cheesy


And thank you bsonlytoots and smittenheart!  I'm so glad you like the pics!  That shot of the chairs was while waiting to go back into the house on the tour.  (You wait on the veranda while waiting for the group ahead to clear out of one of the rooms.)  So it was just chance, but I'm really glad I shot it!

And smittenheart, I love the shots you got of DC!  Such a thorough photo-study of a really amazing area!  And that is great news, about the land!  It is so beautiful there!


Elvissatx, I totally did not know that you were from Alexandria!  (Or the Charlottesville part!)  We decided to go down to Virginia just a couple of days before our trip to the East Coast (which was primarily to visit in Pennsylvania).  It was totally not in the original plan!  The trip you have planned sounds lovely!

This has been an amazing swap!  Thank you for being such an awesome partner, and thank you so much PlumCrafty for making this swap happen!

Hooray!

I'm so glad you liked everything!

I'm working on uploading all of your great pictures so I can show everyone exactly what a super package you put together!

Oh, this has been such fun!!!

Yay!  I and do love everything!  I added some thumbnails to the end of my post above so you can see the frames in action!


It's fun to see all the different places even though it wasn't from our partner!  Grin

I have really enjoyed this aspect of this swap as well.  So many places, and we get to see everyone's unique vision of where they are.

I love the pics imafundork sent!  I love the flowers and plants, and OMG dolphin!  The rain pics are cool too!  Great pics!

I have received a lovely package from elvissatx!  Here is a pic of the whole package:


Frames, a beautiful card, two CDs (photo and video, in the same case), and candy that lights up!

She made two beautiful sparkly amazing vinyl photo frames!  I love them so much!  The colors, the texture, the sparkle, everything!  And they hang on the diagonal (the frame, not the photo).  How cool is that?  Here's a pic of just the frames:



And here are some thumbnails: Another view of the frames, a close up of the detail on the frames, and the beautiful card:



And on to the pics!


El Vez, the Mexican Elvis


Denver International Airport


Uncommon Objects on South Congress


Lucy in Disguise with Diamonds

It was hard to pic just a few to post here, but I did post a lot of them in the photobucket album.  Go there to see fun cupcake themed pics, pics from a plane, the skyline of Austin, and just what it will set you back to get your deer processedWink  And lots of other cool stuff too!

Elvissatx, thank you so much for the wonderful package.  I love it all so much!  This swap has been so much fun!

(Oh, and if you're curious, the prints going in the frames are this and this. Wink )

ETA: Here are some thumbnails of the frames in use.  I put them above the bed where previously we had a depressing plain wall!  (DH's funny comment was that he's glad he's welcome . . . Wink )  And a thumbnail of the pattern on the (store-bought) duvet cover so you can see how well the colors work in this room!

 

They are so sparkly and shiny that I feel I am not capturing the frames very well, but IRL they look fantastic!

I've received a wonderful package from elvissatx!  I'm working on getting stuff uploaded, and I'll post in the gallery in just a bit!

Junostoker and Langwidere, those black and white photos are lovely!  I love especially this bird and this shot of the sun over the water.  So beautiful!

Then I put the CD in my computer and it got even better! She puts all my pictures into a little video! Complete with music! I LOVE IT! Awesome pics!

That is so cool!  What a lovely idea!  I love the pics, smittenheart.  I love that you have captured the light and the water throughout the pics, but I think my favs are the Capitol through the trees (that bsonlytoots posted here) and this one with the candidates!  I want that t-shirt that "Obama" is wearing, lol!  The shadowbox frame is also super cute!


Goldfishpollywog, that mosiac frame is beautiful!  And I love the pics you posted.  I can't wait to see more of imafundork's photos!

I have sent!  (And just sent a pm with the DCN as well.)  I sent yesterday (on the 21st) from a post office that has evening retail hours, at the Philadelphia airport, so the package should be well on its way by now!

Now I have to throw a last few things in my bag and get the family to the airport so we can go home.  Yay!

Elvissatx, I have been meaning to say, I can't wait to see what you have made for me!  I'm sure I will love it!  I hope you like the frame I made, too.  I thought it was finished before I started traveling, but when I looked at it again I thought it needed a little something more, so I added to it.  I hope you will like how it turned out!

Hey there!  I'll be sending later today, probably from the post office in Philadelphia.  I can't wait to see the frame you're sending, elvissatx!  So excited!  I finished yours in the hotel room, because clearly I have a crafting problem (crafts in inappropriate situations, etc.) Wink

I'm sorry to hear that you're having computer problems, PlumCrafty!  I hope you are doing okay, BioformCallie! Smiley

We are on the road, and I don't have much internet time.  I'll log back in later tonight to send pms with a dcn.  Yay!  And to see the gallery!  Also yay!

I love the album!  It's so cute and themed to the swap!  I love the pics you put in the photobucket gallery, smittenheart.  My fav is the library!  It's a really nice package, bsonlytoots!  Cheesy

Hi everyone!  I am on vacation in the Philadelphia area now (so my internet will be sporadic).  I finished my frame at home and brought it in my suitcase so I can send out from here, and it came through the trip just fine!  Whew!  I am going to get some pics from around here and send closer to the deadline.

Now off to see the gallery!  Yay!

I like the felt purse, too!  That's some cool stuff! Cheesy
