111  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Ongoing ATC Swap discussion thread for 2012! on: May 01, 2012 06:22:05 PM
Okey dokey, some questions:

As the swap continues may I add and elaborate to my list of themes? I can't think of a logical reason why not, but I figured I should ask.

Also, if I knew I could handle making more than just one ATC for a person, could I make more than one? I've heard people give extras, but then do you declare you are sending an extra? I am so pumped, I feel like I could make one ATC for every theme on someones list!!!  Tongue

I claim gala_apples for Female Alphabet + Weird Hobby (the letter M)
(from one "apple" to another  Grin )

1/0/0

Its my first ATC swap! I super stoked. I am 21. I live in Orlando, FL. Profanity, nudity, and oddities are all fine with me. In fact, the weirder, the better. Being this is my first ATC and ongoing swap, please feel free to let me know if I am doing something wrong and disrupting the lovely organized process =D

My Themes!!!:

-   Normal bodies with inanimate object heads
-   Animals wearing clothes
-   Random words plus random picture (example: a picture of a telephone, with the word Behave beneath it
-   Wes Anderson movies
-   Monsters, and goblins, and ghouls, and trolls, and aliens, and any weird creatures that exist only in your mind
-   Pinterest-inspired-artists-choice

I TOLD YOU HE WAS GOING ON MY CAR. He's UV and water resistant (apparently). Huzzah!  Tongue
My car is yellow, so the purple narwhal is quite gnarly.

These are some ATCs I did for a swap recently. I was pleased with how they turned out and they got me in the mood for making more! (So, I've already sent in my questionnaire for the May ATC Swap)

This is a character from the Neil Gaiman series The Sandman. I have not read the series, but my partner in the swap liked it, so I did my research.


My partner liked different languages and typewriters- so this is what I did with that.


Thanks for lookin'! That's all.

I was feeling pretty good about my package. I tried out a bunch of new crafts and thought that for my attempts I was pretty happy with the turn outs. Until I received my package from Alexampersandra! Her package tipped the scale and it was truly an awesome-ness overload.

She spelled my first name and then my middle and two last initials (I have a hyphenated last name). That's a total of NINE letters! Alynna J L-H:

First, the packaging was adorable. Mustardy yellow is my favorite color and every letter had a drawstring bag custom made with the best fabric.


A is for Animal Art! Each animal is one I had mentioned liking. These "name cards" are really pushing me to buy a shelf for above my crafting area.


L is for Laziness Justification! I've been a very lazy and messy person my entire life...so this is just perfect. My bf is the same and immediately gave it home decor approval.


Y is for Yellow Mug and things to make in it! I'm a coffee and tea drinker extraordinaire, so I've found myself collecting cups and mugs. She included many teas and baggies to make microwavable cake with! I eagerly tried the strawberry, which was delicious. A truly unique idea.


N is for Nature Inspired Earrings! Alexampersandra even threw in some earrings I had on my pinterest. Clock hand earrings! Look and there's that leaf tin we both unknowingly swapped to each other. haha


N is for Narwhal Stickers! Narwhals are the coolest. I cannot believe she gave me 12 different size and color options. (I'm not complaining  Wink ). I'm going to get a UV protection paint and see if I can make a bumper sticker out of one of these Narwhals.


A is for Altered Puzzle! Great art/crafting skills. This is very my style. And look at the little birdie charm <3


J is for Jar of Whimsies! Nope, still not done. The jar was jam packed with wonderful little bits and pieces. Even the tin was full. This was my first jar of whimsies ever received. I was very excited.


L is for Leaves Gift Set! Some people swap and receive only this. I feel really lucky to have been spoiled with a heaping gift set. Not only did I get gift bags, cards in envelopes, stickers, and tags, I also got ribbon! Owl ribbon! Craftster has definitely made my owl obsession a bit serious.


H is for Hoop! Speaking of my owl obsession. Check out this mega cute mini hoop. So simple. I love it.


Yes, those are ALL NINE of the letters, but Alexampersandra still topped it all off with candy. Not just a little, but a mound that made me feel like I just went trick-or-treating. Each candy was for a different letter. The second "N" stands for Nintendo candy. Clever.


ALEXAMPERSANDRA, THANKS FOR SUCH AN AMAZING PACKAGE!!!

you gals are so smart w/ the teaser pics!
how in the world do you do that?

I used Photoshop for my teaser picture. It has an option to "filter" the pictures you have uploaded and there is a variety of ways to disguise photos. I can spend 30 minutes just going through all of my options.

I also found this site http://www.scrapee.net/en. It has a "Free Online Photo Editor", so if you don't have Photoshop you could use that. Just upload a group shot of your crafts and then edit away until your picture is disguised to your liking!

(ALSO, I'm running down to my apt. office now...according to the tracking my package has been delivered!!!)
