3984  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: FoC Acrylic-Free Bead Soup Swap Rd. 5 - Signups CLOSED; Sendouts 9/16 on: October 01, 2011 07:40:26 AM
Well then ladies, that was our last package and this swap is now officially over!  Thank you all so very much for making this a fun and easy swap with NO FLAKERS!  (Seriously, why didn't I think of this FoC restriction earlier?!?)  You all did a lovely job crafting something thoughtful for your partners and showering them with beautiful beads.

Also, I'm so very VERY proud to report that thanks to your generosity Abbeeroad has received/will be receiving 16 packages of beads and other craft supplies to rebuild her stash!  Now she will be more than able to participate with us in the next round!  And though they were not in the swap, a special thanks goes out to pinkleo & PirateColey for also sending packages to Abigail.  You ladies never cease to amaze me with your kindness and love.  Kiss Kiss Kiss

Next round should be happening just after the holidays.  Signups probably starting a few days after Christmas, and continuing into the new year.  Sendouts around mid January?  I'll be sure to leave a message in both this and the gallery threads, and send out a reminder PM when the swap opens.   Cheesy

Have a beautiful autumn day!

Woo hoo! Massive progress made over the past couple of days. Now to get everything gussied up, sort out the small bits, and put together a package that would make Dumbledore proud Smiley


I've made progress on multiple projects for you my dear, but haven't *finished* any of them.  I got over my nervousness about my large project when I was home sick on Monday.  Finally dived in, and got a bunch of pieces for it done, but now I'm nervous about where to head with it next.  Contemplating messaging the likes of cackle, phizzychick or rackycoo for opinions.

Oh, and Pinkleo, feel free to chime in if you have any thoughts about the pictures I sent you of Ms. Knickertwist's goodies!

I wish I had a slow-cooker *pouts*

Do you have an Aldi in your area?  They go on sale there every few weeks for about $20.  Not that they're all that expensive anyways.  Usually a good one is between $35-75.  And they're a great thing to ask for at Christmas time.  Cheesy

The apron is too cute for words!  And the Herbology notebook is absolutely adorable!

G'arrrrhhhh woman!  Do you spend time plotting how to make me break my Swap Break Resolutions?!?!

I'm home sick from work today.  Spent much of the day sleeping.  Then woke up to a delivery man bringing me a birthday present from pinkleo!  After drinking an entire pot of tea while pouring over my wonderful new book (Shakespeare's Kitchen), I decided to spend a "little while" crafting...  That was 2 hours ago, and I got WAY more done in these last two hours that I ever thought possible on this project!  Now I feel WAY less stressed about this package.

AND to top it off, I got my Pottermore email finally.  Of course, when I tried to sign in a moment ago they told me Pottermore is currently unavailable, but I'm sure that's because so many emails just went out.  Cheesy

Hello ladies.  I have *finally* been able to get pictures and post the lovely package I received from Alchamy513.  (I swear I'm not usually such a horribly ungrateful partner as to drag my feet on posting pictures this long!)  This week has been rough, with working 2 jobs, getting sick, having the batteries die in my camera, and then getting a new smart phone that I have no idea how to use.  My husband explained that the camera in my new phone is actually better than the one I usually use, so he had to show me how to use it, and how to get pictures off of it before I could do this.  Sad  Sigh.  Poor excuses I know, but that's what's been going on this week. 

Anyways, onto the pictures!  There were so freakin many of them, that I had to edit some of them together so I didn't crash craftster with all the beady goodness.
First, some beautiful sea glass, and strands of freshwater pearls!

This may sound odd, but I love how truly deep and black the black beads are.  Despite the "sea glass" texture, they aren't grey at all.  A nice deep inky black.   Cheesy  And the pearls are just stunning!  I especially love the coppery coin shaped ones.  There are also deep indigo-blue, light purple, and white and chocolate brown.  Smiley

Next, lots of stone!

I'm not actually sure what types of stone each of them are.  I think the green are aventurine.  And I think the items on the right are dyed stone.  Very pretty aqua, navy, purple, black and white.  Grin

Glass leaves & clasps!

There are lots of pretty AB glass leaves, including some large focal-sized ones in blue and yellow, a lovely goddess figure pendant (that I'm totally about to use in a swap package!), and it's hard to tell but that strand of heart shaped glass beads are the most beautiful shade of cobalt blue.  I wish I could have gotten the light shining through them.  My bad.  Still trying to figure out new phone's camera functions.  Then beside those, some adorable star and moon clasps!  I'm totally going to use one for a Celestial themed charm bracelet I have in the works!

Next, Alchamy totally came to my rescue with some odd requests I had...

Some lovely asian style ceramic beads for a Kaylee/Firefly bracelet that  I need to make a few more copies of.  Some adorable enameled stars, some really pretty large sage green beads with navy blue leaves on them.  Then, over on the right, dear Alchamy saved my bum with some wee skulls for use on potions bottles I'm making for a swap!  I LOVE the black stone ones!  (They may also be hard to see clearly, but they are super-cool carved stone skulls inside the circle of tiny white skulls.)  There are also some lovely iridescent purple/copper beads, a little copper goddess pendant, and a selection of beautiful metal spacers.

Alchamy clearly noticed my propensity for using tons of charms, so she included a whole bunch!

Fish, Chinese coins, shells, purses, spiders, shells, stars, faces and celtic knots!

And then the lovely crafted goodies!

A beautiful steampunk inspired pendant with a Victorian portrait on a metal butterfly!  And my very favorite, that I've been wearing a lot the last few days...  A beautiful old key pendant, with a pretty little briolette and a little star charm!

Thank you so much dear Alchamy!  Cheesy  I was truly stunned by how much you packed into that box!  It was so thoughtful and generous my dear, and now I'll have goodies for many a future charm bracelet.  Yay!  Thank you again and again for being such a wonderful partner.   Kiss Kiss Kiss
