hey everyone! so, my partner never posted any pics of I what I sent her. actually, she did ask me to post pics of one specific item, but i'm just going to go ahead and post everything that I sent her! sorry it took me forever to put these up! here are the goodies that I sent to eden kitty (oh! and there's gonna be a LOT of pics; just a warning!)
a little monster covered matchbox with...
a little monster inside! (he happens to like soda and brushing his teeth, lol!)
here he is =)
next, some natured themed jewelry
the pendants on the necklace (made from paper)
a purse that goes from "geek"...
to chic! it's reversible =)
okay, and now for my favorite thing a made =) what I am best at is working with paper, in any kind of way, and making books. so I decided to make a book based on one of edenkitty's themes: hello kitty. i "dressed" hello kitty up in various costumes/characters like Mario, link, thor, batman, etc. take a look!
dia de los muertos
a little mini books featuring a vampire, kiss, Frankenstein and Harley Quinn
wolverine and harry potter
sorry for the pic overload! i had a lot of fun creating it, so i just had to share, lol! =)
i have received from edenkitty! i love it, everything is awesome. check out the goodies:
numbered and packaged. sorry the photo is so dark!
the goods unwrapped =)
and here are a few close ups:
love this set!
the copper pendant has an etching of a flower on it =)
love me some arm candy. bracelets!
love it all! and did i mention one of the necklaces is made from a recycled bottle? how awesome is that!? again, sorry for the dark picks and that i didn't have more pics/closeups of all of edenkitty's fantastic work. by the time i went back and looked at the pics, of course my battery had to run out! edenkitty, if you have any more pics, or better than these, please share! everything is awesome =)
i received today! yay! my partner totally spoiled me =) here are the goods:
all packaged up, ready for me to untie =) each item was wrapped in fabric and tied with ribbon, all of which will be put to good use!
unwrapped! i got a slouchy beanie (love! i have been wanting one forever!), an infinity scarf (i believe that's what it's called; also another major want), some dino putty for my son (he's going to be one happy boy after his nap!), a painting featuring a dia de los muertos skull, which will be up on my wall by the end of the day, some bracelets =), and makeup! 2 eyeshadows! was i spoiled or what?!
close up of the bracelets. 2 store bought, 2 handmade. i don't know how many pictures of diy bracelets i have pinned; she did an exellent job!
close up of the painting. so awesome.
okay, so i kept saying "she". that's because my partner didn't come straight out and tell me who she is. she did leave a little hand written clue in each package to help me figure out who it was (awesome idea by the way; i think i'll use the same technique whenever theres another crafty detective swap!) and after doing a little more detective work i think i figure it out! my partner was.........stellato_escuro! am i right?! am i right?! i'm pretty sure. i didn't pm you personally yet cause i wanted to make sure it was you, haha! everything is AWESOME! thanks so, so much. and i wish i had better pics, but my camera was on the verge of dying and wanted to get pics up cause i was so excited. if you have any better, please post, cause everything you created is great!
okay, i really hope it's okay that i post these pics =) it's not of the actual items i sent my partner, but of the packaging job...kinda like a teaser pic for the rest of the group, haha! since my partner already received her package, i thought i'd go ahead and at least post these. i'll be sure to get in contact with libertine to see if i should post pics of the actual items i sent, or if she'd like to. thanks guys!
i put a walking dead trading card on each little package =) the two in the middle have them on the other side.
close up of three of the packages. i didn't take a close up of the other, since you could kinda see through it, and i wasn't quite sure if i wanted to post these as a teaser for my partner before it was received, or not!
i don't know about you guys, but this swap was so much fun. thanks babalina!!
okay, here the pics of the cards i received from witchhippie, littehajerika, mini_mum, and eclectic dreamer! i also recieved another card from goddessgarb today =) (i really hope i'm getting everyone's name right and not mixing people up!) also, i'm not sure if the cards are in that exact order, but EVERY card i have received from EVERY body has been unique, wonderful, amazing, lovely, perfect =) thanks to you all. i hope theres a round 2!
i received from 3 fellow swappers! one yesterday and two today. here are the goodies:
