561  Re: Get Foxy Swap Gallery in The Swap Gallery by blupaisan on: June 20, 2011 04:17:13 PM
I received from mandykaye today!  she made a terrific package for me, just chock full of foxy goodies!!  I love everything.  here is my loot -

A fox clock. This will hang in my livingroom where no one can ever tell the time til now. isnt it adorable? I love getting really useful things.

woodland creature stickers which include my favorite fox of all, the reddy.

magnets for my fridge which is overloaded with notes that keep falling off.  Here are pics of people holding foxes and I am soooo envious. wouldnt it be awesome to HOLD a fox???

a huge box for my jewelry.  It is just beautiful, with tons of care taken into decorating it with lots of embellishments.

the inside has a mirror and gorgeous papery (material?) in the bottom. I hate to cover it up with "junk"

the pic on the lid.  this fox is posing on somebody's SOFA!!

I save the very best for last!  A turquoise (my alltime favorite color) tote bag with a handpainted fox. This guy is just tooooooooo adorable.  He looks like a kit to me. Mandykaye could not make a iron on transfer work so she "resorted" to handpainting.  god, I am glad the transfer did not work. she did such a wonderful wonderful job on this bag.  i love it to death.

thank you so much mandykaye, for your great talents and for coming through with EVERYTHING i asked for.  what a great partner you are.

Well, I just got home from a memorial where I was crying, and lo and behold there were ATCs waiting in my mailbox to cheer me up!  The above is from Tygir on my kitties theme.  This wee one is sooooo adorable.  You did such a wonderful job, Tygir of capturing her character.  thank you very much. (thanks also for the gorgeous birthday card!)
My next treasure is of three cards, 'cause Mountains and Clouds could not decide on just one event.  (something obscure that  happened in 1963, my birth year.)

(This one is my fave, with the little OMG.  It made me laugh out loud.)

this one shows the first liver transplant (tho it was prolly not done in this exact way, hahaha)
and last,

I luuuuuv everything about Alcatraz, especially the creepy and exciting movies and tv shows about it.  I love the card.
Thank you, Mountains and Clouds. I am thrilled to get 3!

Here is my letter m from Brackish Potato. It is so bright and cheerful - I love all the things she picked out to go on here!
She also sent me a birthday extra (it was yesterday so I am still celebrating thanks to her...)

it is adorable and makes me want to run out and buy a cupcake! That was so sweet of you (pardon the pun) Brackish Potato.  THank you so much for two lovely cards!

next up is from WiccadWitch who came through for my foxes theme -

I keep peering at it to see photographic qualities, but this is no photo!  SHe drew it!!!!  I am stunned. Just stunned.
And here is the wonderful owl that was on the envelope-

It was a precursor to the goodness inside.  All I can say is HO-Ly!!
thank you, WiccadWitch. I love it so much.

Here is the lovely sunrise I got from StickerChic87. I just love all the layering and the gorgeous paper for the sun! I imagine that the blue at the bottom is water, then sky colors then the darkness up top that shows the night fading away. It is wonderful!  Thank you, StickerChic87.  You did  a great job on this one!
Next up, I got a turquoise paisley from LolaandBean. Turquoise is my favorite color and paisley my favorite pattern.  I have tried to do paisley artwork and failed but LolaandBean definitely succeeded!

thank you, LolaandBean.  I love it!  i will hang it in my turquoise bedroom.

566  Re: June 2011 Birthday Swap Discussion and Gallery in The Swap Gallery by blupaisan on: June 15, 2011 01:10:18 PM
I have received and I am thrilled to pieces.  MarleesMom made me a journal with some fabric I adore!!  She must have stalked me, because it is sooooo me.

is that fabric to die for or what??
This journal is so professionally put together. Here is the inside with more fabric covering the workings -

and finally a shot of the gold edging -

I am going to put my poems in this journal. I had better write some doozies to live up to the gorgeous container.
thank you very very much, MarleesMom. this was the first bday gift I opened (the big day is tomorrow.) I am so glad it got here for the 16th!  You rock.

Above is the card I got from jillybeans for my theme something obscure that happened in 1963.  I am getting just wonderful cards for this theme!  So, Tab was introduced in that year (I did not realize it was so early) and jillybeans did such a great card for it!  I used to drink this in the 70s when I began my diet failures...  she created such a great looking can with intricately cut out letters - I am sure i would not be able to pull that off.
Then to celebrate my birthday (the 16th) she made me some gorgeous extras in little envelopes like this -

inside each was a terrific piece of artwork and here they are -

which opens to be...

wow, did she get my tastes down perfectly!  I adore foxes ( I am in the fox swap right now), my fave color is turquoise, and the chicken is adorable (i used to have chickens and trained on named Chuck.)
You are so generous and thoughtful, jillybeans. Thank you for making my day a very special one with your wonderful talents!!!!

ps at posting time, the pics are skewed oddly... I certainly hope Craftster fixes them in a matter of minutes...

570  I couldn't just leave it BLANK, now could I? in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by blupaisan on: June 12, 2011 06:55:43 PM

My newest piece of "clothing" is my  hand cast. They gave me a blank slate to work with, so I kept it simple with daisies. I love retro colors like these - brings me back to the 70s when I was a young whippersnapper! The hand is sore, but getting better...
