1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Wes Anderson Swap, Round 5 GALLERY on: July 18, 2014 09:00:39 AM
Yeeee, I LOVE those coasters, very creative!!!  When I made my partner a set, I started panicking when the resin started changing the look of the paper, so I know how Susie feels lol.  But when I calmed down (because there's nothing you can do once you pour that resin uggg) I started liking the changes.  It makes it all better when our partners do too! 
Ah good, so I am not the only one. I've used resin before and it bled into my paper, but this time with the coasters I used Mod Podge to seal it first (and I even used a second coat). I thought for sure I wouldn't have the same issue. Except it did, yet like you said, you get used to it and even start liking it in parts.

WELL FOLKS, I have a lovely package to present to you. I received from Ramona Q a functional and adorable set of things:

Here's everything all together! I told her I like functional things and that I also have a printer's tray that I like to put trinkets in.


So, she embroidered this marvelous hoop of Steve Zissou to go on top of my printer's tray! The details are incredible and the back says, "Let me tell you about my boat". Too frickin' cool.


Then as a functional craft, she made me a Life Aquatic tote bag. I am still debating the lucky contents that are going to get to hang out in this bag. Maybe my books? Maybe some on-the-go crafting supplies? I love how it has the name of the boat on it: Jacqueline Deep Search. Perfect.


And then as if that wasn't enough, she also gave me a Moonrise Kingdom zippered pouch! I just bought myself some new Micron pens and now they have a home! The pouch has the troop number, the raccoon patch, it has "Khaki Scout" embroidered into the top, AND the zipper has beads that spells out Suzy- what an adorable touch.



Ramona Q, you really spoiled me. Everything was great. Thank you so much.

Let the swap anxiety begin! I sent out today. As I was packing it up last night and taking pictures, I was actually feeling a little sad to see these things go, but that's a good thing! I am glad I am passing along something that I would be happy to have myself.

"...but I had my fianc take a look at what I had made (a big Wes Anderson fan)"

I see one of those giant Asian-decor fans that you hang over your sofa with Wes Anderson's face printed on it.
Aha. I see what I did there...
You've got me! Sorry Polly, but I hope your living room has an oriental theme! Tacky fan, coming your way!

Alrighty, so I pleased to say I am in the drying phase of my big project. I've had to make adjustments along the way because things weren't turning out how I wanted, but I had my fianc take a look at what I had made (a big Wes Anderson fan) and I got his approval, so I am feeling a little better. I am hoping to wrap up Friday or Saturday. I might need to make a trip to the craft store, because I am out of something I thought I had. I'm glad everyone else seems to be coming along smoothly as well.

What a great package! I am loving The Life Aquatic Hoop. I cannot wait to see the rest!

So, I've had a rocky start, mostly because I can get very "all in my head" about my crafting ideas. I began working on one of my ideas and just wasn't liking the way it was turning out. A brainstorming session lead to more frustration. I have the rest of the evening to get some things done, my non-working hours of tomorrow and Friday, and then Saturday is a full day off for me, which is going to be when I can really crack down, tie up loose ends, and hopefully send out soon after.

Alas, my computer has been fixed and my pictures have been retrieved. These are the ATCs I sent to pioneer9 for her whimsical monsters theme. I love to send an extra if I have the time and so she also received Pilot from Farscape. THANKS FOR YOUR PATIENCE PIONEER9 AND KOSMICGIRL.  Grin

Okey dokey, I have received my final ATCs from May. (I still have pictures to post of what I sent to pioneer9, but unfortunately those cards are no longer in my possession and my computer that has photos of them has crashed...BUT it should be getting looked at today!)

Without further ado, some super cute cards from whatthepuck. More specifically, whatthepuck's kiddo. She claimed me for "Let Your Child Draw a Monster". I love drawings that children do, they can be so inspiring. These two ATCs are no exception. It looks like we have a cycloptic, winged creature as well as a large limbed purple and green beast! Thanks whatthepuck! You're my first claim for this theme and I now definitely wanna keep it around in the future.



Check out both of these links for some amazing things artists have done with kids' art.

I received a card from rockingbearranch for my surreal collage theme! This is a resend, because her first send out got lost on it's way to me  Sad (I am secretly hoping it just takes a long time to get to me, maybe it's sight-seeing, and then I'll have two fabulous cards, because I love this one so much...)

And of course I got some feathers and it came in an adorable card. (address hidden)

Huzzah! I filled out my questionnaire and made it in under the wire. How wonderful. It has been over a year since I have participated in a non-ATC swap and I am thrilled to be "returning" with this Wes Anderson swap. I worked all weekend, but during the slow hours I brainstormed some crafting ideas. I can't wait to get started!

I received from CDEeeek and pioneer9! My themes were a surreal collage and a beast with lots of teeth, respectively.

The surreal collage is titled "New! From the makers of the T.A.R.D.I.S. Time Machines. -It's bigger on the inside!" I don't watch Dr. Who, however I still get it, since I am friends with plenty fans, plus I love it just the same. Thanks so much CDEeeek for this surreal advertisement right out of the '50s!

Then pioneer9 sent me Matthias, a monster with several teeth, horns, and a heart of g...reen  Grin. He's a handsome creature and a well drawn card, thanks-a-million.
