21  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: One Tiny Thing 22 (OTT 22) Gallery on: July 06, 2009 09:44:57 AM
It's annoying - stuff from Canada to here is slooow, much slower than from the US to here or from here to either. But I'm not worried, and I'm sure it will turn up :-)
22  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: July 2009 Birthday Swap (Lists Only) on: July 05, 2009 06:10:01 PM
Er, yes. I'm Seph, I live in London, my birthday is on the 29th. Steampunky/antiquey jewellery in copper and brass can tempt me, but I mostly wear silver - and never, ever gold. My favourite colour is really offensively hot pink. I like swirly, flock, damask, fleur de lys, filligree-type patterns, especially if they're glamorously boudoir-looking and in black/pink/white. Think Victorian elegance and gothic glamour :-) I am however by no means immune to the cute and kitsch, especially quirky 50s-esque styles! I have a Thing for ampersands (the '&' symbol) and other particuarly loved motifs include theatrical tragi/comi masks and padlock/key things. Especially the locks! I love anything with the words 'slut' or 'whore' on it, especially if it seems out-of-place (see the teaset on my wists). I am a vegetarian, so please nothing that isn't veggie. My proportions are 47-44-54 and I'm 5'2".

Crafted stuff:
  • Any sort of black skirt, preferably either very long or very short but other lengths good too :-) Non-black skirts also welcomed if you think they're 'me'. Yeah, I'm a skirt freak...
  • A full-length apron, possibly with a pocket, in a gorgeous fabric. Something stylish and retro housewifeish and kitsch.
  • Handspun yarn, the art-yarnier the better!
  • Soaps, bath bombs, bath salts, etc. If you make me something that turns my bathwater pink I will love you forever. I am especially wanting some felted soap.
  • A netbook case for an Acer Aspire One (google should give you measurements), ideally with a space/pocket for the power lead.
  • I'm gearing up for uni and after loads of awesomely beautiful things that might help. Lavishly overdecorated ringbinders, pens, notebooks, pencil cases etc etc
  • A crochet hook roll.
  • A quite large and *very* secure and sturdy book tote. This really will be used to cart around books - lots of books, and my laptop too, and probably the occasional pair of high heels - so needs to be up to the job!
  • Bookmarks :-D
  • Safe, sturdy toys for my cats. Eric likes balls and things that roll around for him to chase, Gwendolen (whose name almost nobody can spell right, for some reason) likes dangles and things for me to wiggle for her for her to attack.
  • Jewelery! Though I do wear studs if they're cool enough I prefer big, dangly earrings and don't mind if they're a bit heavy. I have largeish wrists (7.5-8in) and I look really rubbish in chokers, preferring necklaces that hang to the decolletage [grin] I'm also allergic to nickel.

Supplies and extras:
  • Basically any beading/jewellerymaking supplies you can think of. Believe me, I'll find a use for them! Particular loves, in case you need help, are cameos, unusual and ornate clasps/finishings/findings and spectacular focal beads.
  • Ditto for papercraft/scrapbooking. Again, particular favorites are gorgeous 12x12 papers, unusual alphabet stickers, brads and those sticky 3d embellishments. My favourite papercraft company, for inspiration, is probably 7Gypsies.
  • Tops/batts and other things for spinning - angelina, silk etc. I am in love with merino but itching to try new things!
  • Yarn. Basically any yarn. I want a stash [grin]
  • FOs, EOs, glitter, pigments, dried petals...anything for soap/bath bombs, basically. I have to buy all my citric acid online and I'm forever running out, so that's always gratefully received :-)
  • Fat quarters of awesome fabrics
  • Any sort of perler/hama beads
  • Any colour of kool aid for dying yarn - I can't get it this side of the pond.
  • This is going to sound stupid but if you're sending from the US or Canada, I'd really appreciate some Reese's Peanut Butter Cups - I LOVE them!

...what shape would a condom still in the packet be other than 'round'?

And yes, Durex is far and away the most popular brand this side of the pond, too.

Turns out that a) none of my friends except me knew what poutine was and b) when they looked it up on wikipedia they all thought it was disgusting. Mad people.

Glad you like them :-) And happy Canada Day! I want some poutine now.

I had a panic about weight and ordered more supplies yesterday. They should be here tomorrow, and then I can get even more done :-) Rah!

I've not started yet either, and probably won't till I've got my MaF and fibre/handspun packages out, but I do have plenty ideas :-)

[grin] Yeah, and I have four - two of which are huge and one of which is pretty big - and two more lined up that I want to keep space for, AND I don't really like to have all five slots filled! :-p

Teh phail - actually, when I said it would take about a week, I thought you were in the US for some reason, sorry :-( I have no idea why, but posting from Canada takes FOREVER to get here.
