41  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Doctor Who Round 7 Swap Sendouts 10/1/12 on: September 15, 2012 10:52:39 AM
I'm the biggest slacker here it seems.  I have a lot of stuff started,but nothing done or even close to done.  Gotta hit up Michael's today for a couple things.  I am still trying to come up with more ideas as right now I only have 3 ideas and one half idea! I also had a huge brainfart.  I read my partner's questionairre several times, for some reason I was convinced she lived in Idaho or Iowa (a cold place)....but no, she lives in a warm place (California) so I had to scrap one of my ideas!  (I'll save it for a future swap Wink )

You're not alone...I haven't started anything for this swap yet (although I have gotten a few supplies).  I'm finishing up another swap due at the end of this month.  I wanted to finish it first, because once I start on this one, I won't want to work on anything else.  Only thing is the other swap is taking me much longer than I anticipated  Undecided.  I am going to push myself really hard to finish the other one today so I can focus completely on Doctor Who!

Yesterday, I listened to a DW audiobook narrated by David Tennant and watched "The Pirates! Band of Misfits," which also stars his voice.  I just can't get enough of him right now!  Oh, I also watched him on Netflix in "The Decoy Bride" last weekend.  I really enjoyed it and definitely recommend it!  I can't wait to finally get started on this swap!

lilusa - maybe your partner lives in a cold part of CA... I'm in the CA desert and it can get pretty chilly here.

I've started 3 of my 6 items and am happy to say that one of those 3 is finished! I'm trying really hard to get everything done by this weekend...fingers crossed Smiley.

Just checking in.  I have a bunch of posts to read through and I haven't started crafting yet, but I am sifting through various ideas!

I have a ton of posts to read through  Shocked.  I haven't gotten very much done yet, but I'm hoping to use the upcoming three day weekend to my advantage!

I have most of my supplies. Now I just need to find time to start!

*Jon Goodman Meme here* Am I the only around here who doesn't like Matt Smith?!

 Shocked Some might find that kind of talk to be blasphemy! But not me  Wink. I'm not a Matt Smith fan either. After nine left, I was disappointed and didn't think I'd like ten. I was completely wrong though; I fell in love with ten and he is hands down, my absolute favorite. I figured it would take me a few episodes to start liking eleven too, but I've finished nearly two seasons with him and he still hasn't grown on me. 

I miss RTD and am kinda mad at Moffat (even though he wrote all the best episodes during RTD's reign) 

I miss Russell T Davies too. I've found many of the episodes in seasons 5 & 6 to be disappointing and flat.

A very kooky idea for transoforming a household object into an art object/container came to me last night, and I need to wait a few days and revisit the idea in order to determine if it was late night hallucination or doable and cool. Smiley

I once saw a quote that essentially sai 'everything seems like a good idea at 3 in the morning.' Lol. I hope that your idea does turn out to be one of pure genius rather than pure tiredness Smiley.

Maybe this will encourage some more crafsters to join when they see this awesome fabric I have to use for this swap  Grin

Wow!  Where did you get such near fabric?

Eclectic Dreamer, that dyed hand spun wool is really neat!  I have no clue how to hand spin wool, but it looks like a lot of time went into that.  The colors look really good! 

Nostephot also messaged that she received my package, but she hasn't uploaded any pics, so I'll follow Eclectic Dreamer's lead and post photos of what I sent.

This is a pic of the whole shebang.  I had to stand on a chair above the kitchen table and take an overhead pic, so it doesn't show details very well.  There is a lot of paper including scraps, ephemera, note cards, tags, etc.  There are also various stickers, ribbons, and fabric scraps.  The colorful tube-like things in the pic are zippers that I wrapped in press and seal to better condense them for sending.  I think there were around 10 zippers total in various colors and sizes ranging from small to large. 



When I researched nostephot, I found that she liked Harry Potter, so I made her some magnets as the crafted item.  They have a sealant on them that creates a bit of a clear "bubble" (I can't think of a better term right now) over the top of them.



And last of all, I had fun decorating the envelope to build up the excitement upon receipt.

I just sent in my questionnaire!  I already bought some of my supplies and I'm excited to get started! 

I agree with everyone else - the more, the merrier!  After all, more swappers means more fun stuff to abandon and see  Smiley.

Calluna, your altered book sounds amazing and I love the fun of mystery the note stirs up!  It would be so neat to find something like that and then realize that you could keep it!
