271  Re: Jim Henson Swap round ??? Gallery! in The Swap Gallery by Krafty_Karasu on: June 15, 2009 03:56:22 PM
my turn!  my turn!!

I LOVE YOU SHDWSTRM!!!!!!  YOU ARE SO FREAKING AWESOME!!!!!!  I'm leaving the best for last...and it is the best thing EVER.

first we have an authentic Japanese Pikachu that she snagged for me from the Anime Convention she went to (she told me in her letter that she tried to wrap him in the red tissue paper that everything else was wrapped in, but he kept shocking her.  bad Pikachu!  Cheesy).  just a cute little extra because she knows I love me some anime and Pikachu. Wink

then I found this pretty red box with dragons on it.  inside I found hard maple candies (to die for!!!), MirrorMask buttons (Helena and the MirrorMask), Labyrinth buttons (Jareth (drool..........) and a Firey), and a Dark Crystal button (Kira.  hey!  that's the picture I used for her bag!  lol).  I also found a souvenir bracelet from Canada (I forgot to take a picture of it with everything because I was wearing it!  lol)

next was this cute little bag with a symbol from the Dark Crystal on it.  notice the quote on the back.  Grin  it was filled with more candy!!!  2 boxes of Smarties (which has dwindled to one box.  yum!), a Coffee Crisp, and my favorite soft maple candies!!!  the last time I was in Canada I looked everywhere (in Niagara Falls) for them and couldn't find them!  but now I have some!!!  yay!!!

and what's this?  a matching Dark Crystal bag???  awesome!!!!!!!  I'm holding the corner back so you can see the inside material.  the accessory bag has the same lining.

this beautiful shirt was also included.  hey, I have that poster!!!  and look...I HAVE MY OWN WINGS!!!

and last, but certainly not least...the Pièce de résistance, my very own (and very first!) poppet!!! and it's Kira!!!  look at this amazing piece of work!  she's wearing a cloak (look at that back!) with a hood, a little green flowy dress cover and a cute little dress adorned with some beads!  and look at her hair!  she has some braids just like the real Kira!!!  oh how I love her!!!

I love everything!!!!!!!!!!!!  I got the best partner ever!!  I just love Kira.  she's sooooo pretty!!!  my package almost didn't make it out of the post office in one piece!  I just wanted to start tearing into it before I even hit the street!  but I waited so I wouldn't lose anything.  Wink  oh this has been a great swap.  I am so happy to have had shdwstrm as my partner.  Grin

THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

272  lucky maneki neko x-stitch bookmark in Needlework: Completed Projects by Krafty_Karasu on: June 10, 2009 07:39:51 AM
so I just got back into cross stitch a few weeks ago and I've been making all kinds of stuff.  I'm still working on a potholder for myself, but it's not finished yet.  it will be posted as soon as I'm done with it, of course.  but for now, I give you this:

I found the Maneki Neko sprite on some website (stupid me, I didn't save it) found it, used this website to make her name pattern (I found it using Wikipedia.  can you believe it??), then used my Japanese/English dictionary to make the "un" pattern.  that's Japanese for "luck" (that is what my dictionary states and it is a reputable one.  the website I checked it against says otherwise.  it's wrong, I'm right).  he's one stitch longer than the sprite that I used, but you'd never know it unless you studied both pictures.  I wasn't paying attention to where I put a stitch until I was on the opposite side of the pattern.  so I just went with it.  but like I said, you'd never know it.  I'm just anal like that.  Tongue

what do you think?

I am so super glad you love everything so much!  Grin  but there was one tiny, insignificant thing you might have missed about the Kira bag:

I call it the "oops".  when turning the fabric inside out, the plaid ripped!  it made me sick!  I was ready to cry.  but then I came up with a way to fix/hide it.  Wink

and I'm glad your girls like their new jewelry.  Cheesy  it looks so pretty on them.

and everyone take note that that is my very FIRST bottle cap pin cushion.  I just love how it turned out.  I'm so proud of it.  Grin

and you had better post that teaser soon.  I'm dying to see something!  I'm really dying to get the package!  but I guess I can settle for a teaser.  Wink

I want so badly to post Saor's earrings.  but I don't know if I should because what if suddenly they appear in her mail and then the surprise is ruined!  I don't know what to do!

it's mine!!!  all mine!!!   Grin Grin Grin

and I didn't realize there was a heart and key.  Tongue  I felt the apple under there, but didn't notice the other 2.  they were caught under his sleeve.  but I snapped pictures.

the one is a little blurry.  Undecided

thanks again!

yay!  me first!  me first!!

I was beyond spoiled.  this was one of the most amazing packages I've ever received...ever!

first we have some shirts from my wists!  I knew that thing would come in handy some day.  I'm glad I started it.  Tongue

then, we have a jewelry box based off my favorite scene from the saga; Bella and Edward's little (fairy) cottage.  at least, that's what it made me think of when I read that part in Breaking Dawn.

inside, I found all kinds of little goodies:


a key pin, wrist pincushion, Twilight patch, and some buttons

then we have these awesome fingerless gloves, again from my wist (ignore the date.  something's wrong with my camera AND the batteries):

and last, but certainly not least, the best freaking thing in the box (that I almost didn't get because GatorWrangler wanted to keep it for herself  Wink):

an Edward doll!!!!!!!!!!!  can you believe it?  my very own Edward!!!!!!!!!!!!!  here's a close-up so you can see his face a little better (sorry it's a little blurry):

this swap was AWESOME!!!!!!!!!

I just found out that Edward is wearing more than just an apple around his wrist.  Tongue  his bracelet has an apple, heart and key on it.  so I snapped pictures of them as well.  sorry the one is blurry.  I couldn't get it any clearer!!!  I hate my camera...

I love the Cookie Monster recipe book.  what a great idea!

I did send shdwstrm's box today, and since she is only a few short hours north of me, it (hopefully) shouldn't take too long for her to get it.

but until then here's a little teaser for everyone...

280  scrap fairy doll in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Krafty_Karasu on: May 08, 2009 01:04:58 PM
I made this forever ago.  I used pieces of scrap fabric I had laying around.  her body is made from a pinkish shirt that no longer fit me, the wings are made from some Barbie clothing I still had for some reason, and her panties and long vest are made from this beautiful Victorian-looking blouse I ruined.  I miss that top.  anyways, her hair is just pieces of blue yarn pulled apart to give a crimped look that I love.  I even made her a little black necklace.  and yes, her non-existent bellybotton is pierced.
