331  Re: September Monthly Odd Holidays Gallery - send out August 23 in The Swap Gallery by jexxican on: August 28, 2010 03:10:24 PM
Yay! She liked it! I was really not anxious about this swap,like I knew she would love it all. And then I received mine today and holy cow, I received way better than what I sent. Sad

Here's a little of what I sent her:
The punctuation day embroidery:

and the embroidered apron for mushroom month:

I had a lot of fun with those. I love seeing how my creations look in their new homes, though, so I'll let her post the rest on Monday.

And now here's the crazy loot she sent me!!!
There's a learning to make hairpin lace kit for Lace Making Day inside this, which uses fabric for Talk like a pirate day and preserve the ozone layer day (it even looks like she put beads on the "planet green" square for where we are in relation to each other in the US!):


Everything was so nicely done! Like, the notes for each item and the instructions for the hairpin lace (found online) were matted and tied on with pretty blue ribbons. SEE?!

And then, since I love the MOHs so much, she sent me a nice wreathe with removable interchangeable ornaments. Velcro on most, like the lace flowers for lace making day:

though the earth one for preserve the ozone layer day was attached to a ribbon and there were pins on it so I could pin it on. AND THERE IS A PIRATE FOR PIRATE DAY! ARRRR!

Isn't Gebah awesome?!

I got my box Monday after my vacation and here is my loot!
For Sister's day Spitz sent a necklace with a jar with with with mine and my sister's names written on it. How CRAZY AWESOME is that?! This is my favorite! And Sister's Day was Monday, but I forgot to call, I'm a loser.

Closeup, it has oil and glitter int he jar too.

For Toasted Marshmallow Day I got a tin (that looks like a marshmallow who is not happy about being toasted) full of HOMEMADE MARSHMALLOWS! Alton Brown's recipe, too. I love him. They are a little gooey from the trip, but oh so nommy...

And for dog day she sent a picture frame decorated with Milk Bones and some homemade peanut butter dog treats, which is really funny because I also sent her some PB homemade dog treats. I think it's the same recipe but hers came out my cakey than mine.

I have decided I really like Spitz.

I got my stuff finally! Well, I think it arrived while I was on vacation so here it is!
Headband, ear warmer thing:

Wrist warmers? I asked for socks and ThatsWhatSheSaid said she would try but I think this is what came of that attempt. I like them so it's cool!

And Dishcloths! Winnie the Pooh and a star. It took me a while to figure out the Pooh bear one, but I got it without having to ask! And if that's not what it is then I have no idea!

Yay! I am a winner! Did she ever post what I sent her? I don't think so. Meh.

335  Re: Handmade rubber stamps swap 3 Gallery! in The Swap Gallery by jexxican on: August 04, 2010 07:22:01 AM
I received from all 3 of my partners while I was gone which means i picked them all up from the PO on Monday. Busy busy, so here they are, before WideEyedLife gets pissed at me.
These are what I got from WideEyedLife. She even sent them in a little homemade box made to fit them, and they all fit together so perfectly! Yay! She even decorated the box with the stamps I sent her. Ladybug boy and the works.

And from PaintedLady, who hasn't mentioned if she has gotten any of our stamps, unless I missed them. My husband says this is his favorite because it's all kick butt. Just like Kimmy would have loved it.
Hey, PaintedLady, you got stamps yet?

And from Devilxcat, a yarn ball, because I'm a yarnie all the way mostly and another ladybug.

Thanks you guys! This was fun!

So I haven't finished my box for Sarahj, but I went against my own rules and opened from her. Oh my holy crap! Check this out!

Rainbow patchwork skirt! If this wasn't on my wist already then why?! And I already have it, but I totally want to wist it (again?) because I love it that much! Sorry there's no twirly shot, but I'm not that talented.

Oh, and it came with this card

I'm a lucky girl.

Received package 2! Here's what I got:
Extras: Blue sparkly ball (already stolen), hot chocolate (!), fun hamburger and hotdog candles, monkey card with googly eyes. I love how the hotdog ended up in this picture under the monkey and gave him a mouth. Not planned but awesome. And a frog zipper pouch. I think I wisted this one here once? I don't know, but I love it.

My first ever pair of hand-knit socks! A little sucg, but with the way I wear things I'm sure they will losen before too long. Perfect.

and 5 new skeins of yarn!

Thanks friend!

Margiej got her box and has asked me to post pictures for her. I decided to send all wall hangings this time, which is really weird for me to send all the"same" thing but it's how I was inspired. Here we go:
For American Redneck Day I embroidered her a Redneck wall hanging that translates to "Well knock me down and steal my teeth!"

For Bugs Bunny Day I paintedher 2 classic Bugs Bunny sayings wall hangings:

and Fudd:

And for Cheer Up the Lonely Day I locker stitched her 2 "beauty" wall hangings, one for her and one for a lonely friend:

TLH, you got some amazing spoilage! I love that idea for I Forgot Day.
On to my goodies! I received a couple days ago but since I don't open before I send I just got to opening it today.
First, for Stay Out of the Sun Day, I got an apron which is supposed to encourage me to stay inside and make food. I am OK with this.

Then, for Take Your Pants for a Walk Day, I got a water bottle holder, modeled by the fabulous Russell.

And last but not least as far as holidays go: Barbie in a Blender Day. She put some dolls in a jar and made it look like a blender, red feathers (blood? HAHA!) included!

She also made me a tote, which is way better than any tote I have ever made. I don't think tote is a good word for it. I'm thinking something more like Diaper Bag or satchel... There's even pockets inside! Amazing!

This lady, Margiej, sure knows her sewing machine and I'm glad of it! I really honestly loved it all!

And now I get to watch the rain, yay! When I first moved here it rained for 2 weeks in July so I went to WalMart to buy an umbrella. You know what they told me? "It's not umbrella season." It's been raining since Monday. Hm... still looks to me like it's umbrella season. [/rant]

340  Dragon Castle Puzzle, Rawr in Completed Projects by jexxican on: June 16, 2010 07:59:52 AM
I think this should go here, just because I don't know where else to put it.
It's an altered puzzle.

I made it for the MYB 13: Themes swap. Each of the pieces was wrapped in the ball individually. The board, obviously, couldn't fit in the ball but it was still there in the box. She likes it.
It's mostly painted but I did cheat a little and use a sharpie on some of the tiles. What do you think?
