Here's my sweet package from Smeddley!

First, a needlebook with a dress for Jane (remember that episode where she goes to the dinner party naked and ends up with the doll's dress... teehee):

And shirts, yay! An awesome Red Dwarf one:

And one from the Ministry of Silly Walks. Cheesy

I feel like I may need to get an action shot of me in that last one, doing some sort of exceptionally silly stepping. hehe. Thank you, Smeddley! I am hoping to get your package to you early next week, sorry for the delay.

bookstorebabe and I did a personal swap in the givers and needers theme, and I wanted to show the pretty thank you gift she made for me. Smiley Two hair clips made from vintage clip-on earrings - very neat! Here's an action shot of one of them:

I got my lovely package from missmlissa today! Behold the goodies! Cheesy
She made me this pretty, floppy gardening hat with a removable button flower:

And I got seeds! Some in bomb form, and two packets of heirloom tomatoes (Black Cherry and Cherokee Purple) - I am so excited to do tomatoes this year.

The seed bombs (colorful native wildflowers) - I'm already plotting where to toss them. Cheesy

Delicate-smelling and very soft on the hands, Gardener's Salve. This will save me come planting time!

And this amazing gathering apron! This is one of the things I was most hoping for, yay! And the fabric is so cool, too - it was reclaimed from a wrap skirt.

It's amazingly roomy! I'll be able to pick piles and piles of veg!

Thank you again, missmlissa - you made my spring!

Thanks for being patient through my photo hosting hiccup! Here is my lovely OTT from AnarchyCupcakes:

I said I would love something useful, and AC made me this gorgeous kodama journal. The papers are so nice! I'll have to find something special to use this for. Cheesy

She also sent me this adorable bookmark:

Thanks so much AC! It was great swapping with you! Kiss

267  Playing mad scientist... mwahahahaha in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Acadian Driftwood on: March 22, 2011 12:34:18 PM
I recently cleared out some of my old, gently-used stuffed animals, and they'd been sitting around waiting to be donated. So when I wanted to make something for my partner's son in the Eco/Hippie swap, I had the perfect materials! At the end of a night of listening to Radiolab podcasts and cackling intermittently, I had Frankensteined these critters together (can I use that as a verb?).


Here's the Rabbmation, I only changed his ears:

The Bearit, who is so funny-looking... I even had to take some stuffing out so her chub wouldn't overpower her bear parts.  Wink

And my favorite, the Bunnteddydog!

All of their new bits are securely sewn on, so they should stand up to some play in their new home. Smiley

268  Matchbox Swap round 5 - CLOSED, sendouts April 30 in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by Acadian Driftwood on: March 16, 2011 02:54:13 PM

Sign-up date range: 3/16/11 - 4/6/11
Date to send item by: 4/30/11

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): 90

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? no

Additional Age requirement? 16, unless swapper has moderator approval

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:

- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: yes
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: yes
- Promises to go easy on the potato references: yes
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: yes

- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: yes
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: yes

- Participant has agreed that he/she is at least 16 years old: yes
- If within the US, understands that Delivery Confirmation number is required for this swap: yes
- If outside the US, understands that a mailing receipt copy is required for this swap: yes

Details of swap:

Find a matchbox that holds between 30-40 wooden matches and fill it as full as you possibly can with tiny supplies and/or crafts. You'll be amazed by how much you can fit in it! You can put anything you want in it, as long as it is craft related.  Supplies such as beads, paper, ephemera, postage stamps, brads, buttons, fibers, embellishments, stamped images, stamps, ribbons, stickers, foam shapes, fake flowers.  Handmade goodies such as, earrings, magnets, a necklace, charms, pins.  If it fits and can be used in a craft, or is a craft it's fair game. You can have 1 or 2 partners -- you will decorate  a matchbox for each partner, and you will receive a matchbox from each partner. One suggestion would be to stalk your partner and decorate the matchbox to their likes and dislikes but if you have an idea in your head already, decorate away. Just as long as you decorate and cram as much into the box as you can all will be good.  This swap is meant to be a quick, easy, and cheap swap so no extras, if it doesnt fit in the box do not send it, unless you and your partner agree to personal swap at the same time. "Decorations and wrapping" are allowed. Wink You can also make your own "matchbox" as long as it is the appropriate size. Here's one template you could use: http://blog.swap-bot.com/rachels-matchbox-template/

About shipping:
Delivery confirmation is required in the US for this swap, and swappers sending non-US packages must keep mailing receipts and be willing to send a scan or picture of that receipt if there is a problem. If you are unsure if your package is big enough to qualify for delivery confirmation, please upgrade to a bigger envelope or box.
Also, remember to send a message to your partner and your organizer when you send AND when you receive. In a large swap, it is difficult for us to keep track of receiving just by posts in the threads. Thanks!

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

Name of swap: Matchbox Swap round 5
Craftster username:
Email address:
Your real name:
Mailing address including the country:
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country?
Confirm that are at least 16 years old (YES/NO)
Would you like one or two partners?
Do you have access to a camera and promise to post pictures in a timely manner?
NOTE: it is recommended that you take pictures of the boxes you send, just in case they don't make it to their destination or if your partner has sudden camera issues.
List a few themes you like, around which your partner might chose to decorate:
Is there anything else your partner/organizer needs to know?


Also, remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find other rules about participating in a swap.

Hi everyone, I'm tlk's partner - just popping over here to post a teaser while she waits to receive the final product. This is the mock-up I made to test the size of the pattern, and to experiment with a new seam-finishing technique.
