2961  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Personal/Private Swap Gallery, Second Half 2009 on: November 08, 2009 03:32:44 PM
I had a "Dozen Inchies" swap with thelastkodama.  Here is what she sent:  As when I was a child, I arranged them in order of my favorites, with the piece de resistance last:

Yes, the coasters have been sprayed, but the backs are cork and should not be submerged in water.  Just damp-cloth wipe on the painted fronts where glass rings will be.
2963  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / my first-ever stuffie on: November 08, 2009 09:31:13 AM
Mr Owl is my first stuffie.  I put a weight in the bottom of him so I could use him as a pincushion. I followed a tutorial from Mel's Own Place, and had a blast.  I chose a smocked top that I never wear to cut up to become Mr Owl, hoping that the smocking in the front would resemble the ruffly feather look.  Unfortunately, being a beginner, I put the wrong side out, and the elastics are showing instead of the finished smock side, lol, but hey, the effect I wanted remains!  I was lucky to find two lovely buttons in my old collection for the eyes.

These are stunning.  I plugged 'em for rocking!  The sheet music  background is wonderful. 
2965  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Skirt tote purse with bamboo handles on: November 06, 2009 08:38:56 AM
I found a knitted bag at the thrift store, cut off the handles, and sewed on this cutie-pie little girls' skirt.  The skirt has a lining, which I sewed at the bottom so the outer layer could still flow freely like a skirt.  It cost me $2.49 to make!

I have been dying to post, but I am always over at my bf's house, where the computer does not store my password.  And do you think I'm clever enough to remember my own password?  You probably know the answer....  Anyway, I am back at my own digs to check the mail, and will add my 2 cents in about the second-hand items.  I always find them MORE interesting than new ones!  They have evidence of life, if you know what I might mean, that they have been loved and have experienced perhaps wonderful times.  I could wax poetic here, but I will just give a big thumbs up to second-hand and thrift items, not just because they are cheaper, either! 
I have finally decided on my thingie, and am in the middle of making one for myself as a practice run, which is good because I made a semi-major mistake already, which I will definitely not be doing in the final one for my partner.  Yay for first tries ahead-of-time!

Rats!  I can sympathize for your failure.  I just had one for another swap, it was such a cool idea, but I just couldn't get it to work...

I am not at all into Pokemon, but I couldn't help loving that ball!  Very well done, and beautiful in an of itself.  Koala is adorable, too.

Just got back from the PO.  Babystarlite13's package is on it's way to her now.

birdbrain here forgot to include the margarita salt in the photos!  This would have been significant, because I had my very first margarita this summer and thought, hey, look what I have been missing!!!!!  So, thank you, babystarlite13 for the salt!
