111  Re: Be Awesome Swap Gallery! in The Swap Gallery by thisbirdsabsurd on: June 06, 2010 01:43:40 AM
OKAY!!  Time to liven up this joint!  Wink  I received from Rackycoo today and I have to tell you I was out in the driveway when the mailman walked up with my package and I sat right down in the grass and opened it up!  First off there was an awesome little card made by non other than Phizzychick, then from within layers of bubblewrap and tissue paper the true awesomeness was revealed.  So, without further ado, Rackycoo's awesome creation!

this is from my wists by the way and she did a spot on job!  Even more amazing is that she gathered all the bits and pieces from other amazing craftsters!!!  How awesome is that??
Here is a close up of the shoes - now famous due to Racky's dabbling with a band saw!  Wink

And finally a couple of close ups so you can appreciate the details.  Coolness!

Thanks a million Rackycoo - this is super special and will have a prominent place in my home! Cheesy

here we go - my dotee from MadGypsy!  I have to say - it freaked me out a little when I slid it out of the envelope - the weight and the texture gave it the feel of "the real thing"!  HAHA! I'm thinking his whole body is made of sculpy, then covered in feathers.  He has a stern look on his face so I have nick named him "the blue bird of seriousness".  Wink  Thanks Gypsy - great addition to my growing collection!

114  Re: Coraline Rd 3 Swap Gallery! in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by thisbirdsabsurd on: April 19, 2010 03:51:08 PM
Okay you guys - I had an awesome swap partner - never in a million years would I have guessed that this was her first time!  Check out my awesome package!
First of all, please excuse the extranious debris on my art table - I was too excited to clean it all up before I took the pics - haha!  To start I got two great boxes, the large keyhole box will be perfect for some of that stuff you can see I need to clear off my table - and the tiny Forcible button box had my seeing stone inside - I told Monsters it will be perfect for finding the things that I lose track of on a daily basis - lol!

Next we have some fabulous button trimmed hand warmers for "those cold nights in the other world" - very cool

Next we have the prettiest headband - its design is based on the picture of Coraline climbing through the tunnel to the other world - how creative!  My daughter is slightly irrate that I won't GIVE it to her - but I promised she could borrow it.  Wink

Now check out this squid - I love love love him!!

And....the whole package - I was really impressed - there wasn't a thing that I didn't love - great job Monsters! Thanks for being a perfect swap partner!!! Cheesy

115  The Other Mother Purse in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by thisbirdsabsurd on: April 19, 2010 07:19:06 AM
I always feel a little weird posting swap projects - kind of like posting something that doesn't belong to me anymore - but I was so happy with how this turned out, and so happy my swap partner liked it that I just had to post!  This was for the Coraline swap.  It is a painting of "The Other Mother" that I then stitched onto a bag that I made.  The inside has bug fabric to go along with the theme.  Smiley  Thanks for having a look!

Sorry to hear you're having a tough day blu - hopefully you'll have some dotee goodness in your mailbox soon to make you feel better!  Wink

Okay - second dotee arrived! (I'm so glad I mailed mine out on Friday or I would have been panicing!) - Here is the awesome peacock dotee made by Piratecoley - her friend has a peacock farm so....lucky me!   Cheesy  I also got another little mask (I think Madgypsy posted it with her dotee too) - but soeone seems to have obsconded with it...hmmmm - so...here we go:

great beading and painted sculpy face! (right?) - some adorable penguin stickers came too - but what do you know - one of my daughters immediately took ownership - haha!

I also have to say that Pirate included the most magnificent charm bracelet that she made for me for a personal swap - I'm going to post it in the jewelry category as soon as I snap a few pics - you're awesome Pirate!!

Hooray hooray!  I got my first dotee today!  This is from blupaisan - and my favorite part is his little beady legs and the branch he's standing on!  Blupaisan - whatever made you think I'd like a bird dotee?  Wink  He's great! Cheesy

(OH!  and I'm just noticing that Smmarrt has posted a dotee while I've been fiddling around here - what a cute idea!!)

119  Circular knitting needle case in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by thisbirdsabsurd on: March 05, 2010 02:32:37 PM
-Not sure if this belongs here or in the knitting section....seems like this is the best place.  Wink
I made this for a friend who recently took up knitting again - she has fallen in love with circular needles and was looking at a roll in the knitting shop that was going for $85!!!!  WHAAAA?Huh?  I went off measurements fir a case I found online - but I lined the pockets, added a zipper pocket, quilted the front, added interfacing for a little more body, and added ties instead of snaps. There are pockets enough for 10 circular needles and then a few for scissors or regular needles although I found out the circular case dimensions don't really account for long needles....I don't think it will really be an issue for her.

It was much more time consuming than I had anticipated, but I'm happy with the outcome.  I chose the fabrics based on her LOVE of gardening - hope she likes it!  Smiley

Outside - all folded up

Inside - lotsa pockets!

Oh my goodness - I hope you all are ready for some awesomeness.....I got my package today from CoutureCreations (in spite of the grenade) - and it is FANTASTIC!!!  This was her first swap, and I know she was nervous, but there was no need - she totally "got it". More importantly - I think she really "got ME" - which isn't always easy Wink - okay okay okay - on with the show......
this was the first thing that popped out at me - and can you believe this was her first foray into stuffies?  Look at his tummy "ROUS they don't exist".  lol

Next up, an awesome box with three of my most favorite characters - great picture I think - and full of little note cards so I can plot my evil deeds!

And how about this decoupaged book??  Sweet!  (I love blank books of all kinds - can't wait to fill it up! :p

Pretty awesome right???  Well wait - there's more!!

  Check out this towel and washcloth with some quotes that we all know and love....

and on that same embroidery awesomeness note - I got this adorable little bag (love the fabric) - with this gorgeous tag that I absolutely WILL find the perfect place for.....

Now of course this isn't an EMPTY bag - it opened to reveal some delicious "miracle pills" that I ate strictly for medicinal purposes! And in a little pocket there was a beautiful set of earrings and matching bracelet, "so I can feel like a princess".

  Now, can you even begin to imagine that she was nervous about her package???  Good grief!  I feel like I was totally spoiled!  Thank you a million times over CoutureCreations - you are a partner that everyone will be scrambling for!  Cheesy
