-Do you have an allergies? Nope
-Are there allergens in your home? cats
-What crafts do you do or plan to do for the swap? i crochet, knit, sew, stencil, polymer clay, dye yarn, make sock monkeys.
-What type of crafts would you like to receive? anything, but I do like useful, so clothes, things I can use for my crafting, boxes, bags, CUSHIONs, wall art, earrings and for this swap stuffies or amigurumi would be acceptable  
-What would you rather not receive? hmm nothing for my hair (I'd never use it).
-Shoe size? UK 6 (I've got wide feet, so nothing narrow)
-Shirt size? Uk 18
-Favorite Color? black, red, green, purple.
-Ears Peirced? 3 times.
-Anything Specific you want or don't want?
-Do you have some way of getting to know you better? Wist and blog in my signature
-Are you planning on crafting more than the bare minimum? possibly, depends on my partners likes
-Other than Hayao Miyazaki, any themes, colors, etc. you're really into? off course elephants, gothic spiders, tigers
-Other than not Hayao Miyazak any themes, colors, etc. you're really NOT into? too cutsie and pastels
-Favorite Hayao Miyazak film so far? I love Howl's moving Castle and Nausica, Spirited away. My Daughter loves My neighbour totoro and Ponyo. I haven't had a chance to see Whisper of the heart and the cat returns, but I'd love too.
-List one or two quotes you've come to love I'm no good at specific quotes but I love the relationships and dialogue between characters like sophie and Howl or sophie and calcifer. Also Chihiro and Haku
Favorite Scene? We both love the bit with ponyo running on the top of the waves, and there are too many to describe in Howl's - the meadow, sophie pushing calcifer around, sophie bossing Howl around when he's depressed. Chihiro saving Haku when he's bleeding, Chihiro telling Haku what his name is.
-Anything you'd like to share to help either me or your partner? I love the movie's, I love the creatures in the them and I adore the relationships between them and now I want to go and watch them all over again.  I'd love a partner that would like some amigurumi's of some of the characters in the movies.

they really sparkle. I used sparkle clay, mixed with a translucent clay, and then a skin tone clay to give it that fleshy campire-peen look.
 
to change your image viewing settings please click here

they're pretty small, fit on a nickel. I made them for an awesome woman who makes charm bracelets for Fanfiction writers. She saw some of my stuff on Twitter, and poof, I've been making sparkle peens.

They've become pretty popular, too.  It's crazy.

15  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Hex Bag Bird Skull on: April 24, 2010 08:16:12 AM
My partner just received this from the One Tiny Supernatural Thing swap, so I wanted to post it.  I made a whole little hex bag with a feather, and a little lock of doll hair, and this.

A polymer bird skull.


After I sculpted and baked it, I painted the whole thing with a dark-chocolate colored brown paint and wiped it off with a baby wipe before it dried to give it that aged-dirty look.  When I sculpted it, I made sure to leave imperfections, scratches and holes for the paint to catch in. Then I baked it again, at a slightly lowed heat to give it sort of a brittle feel to it.  I think that the effect worked quite well.



It hangs on a leather cord.  Leather just seemed to suit it better then my normal charm chains.  I don't really thing a ball chain would do this justice.



This one I tried to keep bird-like but not to the point of gross/creepy.  I actually made one before this that was way more life like but it freaked my daughter out so I decided to make a less-creepy one.

C&C always welcome!

So my mother in law gave me a couple styrofoam wig head display things.  I've been meaning to do something with them for a while. But I wasn't sure what to do.  That is until I signed up for a Wall Art swap, and after receiving my partner, I just know.

I am so totally going to do a tute for this soon.


You can see the little before picture.

Mounted, haired, and bloody.  This picture is curtosy of Shelina.

WELCOME TO THE CORALINE RD 3 CRAFT SWAP!!!!




[Swap Organizer herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES
- Is at least 18 years old: YES

- Has been a member for at least one month: YES
- Has posted at least 15 times: YES
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES

Well be using the point system for this swap.  Youll have to send your partner 5 points of items.

Small Item = 1 point
Med Item = 2 Points
Large Item = 3 Points

Or any combination of the three ( i.e. 2 med, and 1 small...ect."
 
For new swappers there might be a bit of a confusion as to what is a large, medium, and small item, so here's a handy guide:  

Small = By time, 2 or less hours of crafting. By $$$, $10 or less. By size, Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

Medium = By time, 2 or more hours of crafting. By $$$, $10-$30. By size, one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf

Large = By time, 3 or more hours of crafting. By $$$, $30 or more. By size, A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
 
This is not totally set in stone, but is a rough estimate of sizes described by time it takes to make package, by physical size and by cost.
 
Rules:

All participants must check in at least once a week by posting in this thread. Communication with Swap organizer AND partner is important! I want to hear how your doing! I care! I really do!

If your partner is within the US, you MUST get a DC and pm it to the organizer and your partner. If you are within Canada and have a canadien partner you MUST get a tracking number and pm it to the organizer and your partner.

Important note: Remember to take pictures of your items before you send. If you are unable to for any reason please PM your partner to let them know. It is not a requirment to post pictures, but really, who doesn't want to brag?!
 
****If you are interested in increasing the points of your swap package, let me know and I will try to find a suitible partner. If you need to decrease, please let me know, and I will still find you a suitible partner!***

IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.

20  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Coraline Rnd 3 Swap on: February 11, 2010 06:04:02 PM
I am thinking of organizing a Coraline swap, and wanted to know if any one was interested.  It would be my first swap I organized, so I would love to have a co-organizer or be a co-organizer.  I'm pretty confident in my swapping abilities though.

While I am not entirely sure on the details, I was thinking a one large, one medium, one small swap. 

Let me know if any one is interested!
