11  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: --- Themed Bookmark Gallery --- on: July 30, 2009 04:11:41 AM
Hi!
Firstly apologies to greenfaerie! She sent me such awesome bookmarks and i haven't done them justice becasue i have posted pictures yet, i'm very sorry!


Here they all are crammed into the book i'm reading at the moment (i got a bit carried away in my excitement!)




I got an awesome southern kitsch bookmark! with little piggys on! i cannot believe you have a store called piggly wiggley  Cheesy

A route 66 one to represent my love of all things americana! I am very jealous of your trip btw greenfaerief  Smiley

I loved the coney island one - greenfaerie left the back in scrunchy vellum so that i could add my own pictures of my trip! its going to make a great memento - thank you. I think the idea of doing it in a representational style is awesome and the little metal coney on the bottom is adorable; This is how greenfaerie described it and i think it is much more eloquent than my excited babble! ; Stylized take on Coney Island marker:  Since I love Coney, but never have been there, I actually did this in a representational art style.  The yellow reminds me of the lights, the stitching both the rails of the coasters and the stitching on some of the proud freaks who perform there.  I put a sheet of puckered vellum on the back with the intention that you could glue a panoramic crop of your trip or even 3 small pictures to the back.  The metal "Coney" part I formed myself out of wire

and finally this cute little bookcorner which i think is my favourite - its a style that my partner used in alot of her wedding stuff and its beautiful your wedding must have been pretty as a picture, i'm honoured to be the first person you've used the style on since your wedding!

Thank you again greenfaerie!

and p.s i am loving the gallery everyone did such awesome jobs!

I think the euros are so pretty!  Most of mine have the Ireland symbol on them, but I have a couple with the Spain symbol and one that I'm not sure about... it has a group of islands on it? Maybe it's the UK? 

It won't be the UK as we haven't caved to the euro! yet! and hopefully we won't! We hav the British pound! i would love to send someone some of our coins! my roomate in the us used to collect coins too so it was great fun to look through them all!

The restaurant menu one is so funny! It made me giggle a lot! and newspapers isn't boring lafrenteenalto i collect them from cities on my travels!

re: my christmas decoration habit - it has been the us so far as thats been where i decided to start my collection! i didn't manmage to get them from all the places i went to so it would be super neat if i got paired with someone who lived in any the states i visited!

- Louisiana (specifically New Orleans)
-Texas (Austin!)
- California
-Nevada
-Illinois
New York
- Pennsylvania!

Yankee lover will do it for me anyday!  Cheesy

I can't quite work out this can work as a swap yet - Do you think we would need equal numbers of Ukers and Usaers (more making up words!) - i guess it depends on what sort of patriotic goodies you wanted. Right now seems a perfect time for those of you in US seeing as craft stores will be on discounts on 4th of July goods (God i miss your craft stores!  Sad

When would be a good time for everyone to swap?
