21  Re: Fabric Art Journal Pages Swap - Send out December 16 in The Swap Gallery by Wulf on: December 30, 2013 06:51:07 PM
I finally received my page from Heini! I was getting a bit worried, but it was so worth the wait!



I absolutely love the little gnome, with his fuzzy white beard. (Rather like my own, in fact.) Cheesy The flower buttons and bluebells give a promise of spring that's much needed at this time of the year! And finally, I really like the way you've left so much extra fabric around the edges. This is very smart, because it gives lots of room for me to finish it however I want. I wish I'd thought of that - I'm afraid I cut your page exactly to size, Heini!

WWP Round 47 - Goddess Shrine Swap
The Goddess Shrine Gallery

To celebrate the festival of Imbolc or Candlemas at the beginning of February, we're going to swap shrines to our favourite goddesses. No Pagan, Wiccan or witchy person ever had too many shrines in their house, and we could all do with just one more to make it perfect! Cheesy

For this swap we're going to exchange one small to medium-sized shrine (nothing too large because of postal costs) honouring a goddess of our partner's choosing. This festival marks the point where the Lady, having given birth to the Lord at Yule, returns in her virgin form. The goddess most associated with Imbolc is Brighid or Bride, but it is also very suitable for many other Maiden or Mother goddesses.

Do you need to be a Wiccan, Witch or Pagan to join this swap? No, not at all! You have to be comfortable swapping with someone who may be, but really you just need to have a love of shrines and a favourite goddess! To join the swap, PM this questionnaire to Wulf. You must also be willing to participate here in the swap thread, and post photos of the shrine you receive. (If you can't do that for some reason, please make sure your partner knows ahead of time.)

Oh, Ludi! Both the Green Man and Kitchen Witch are brilliant! Is the KW's head polymer clay? She has a wonderful face!

Here's the haul I got from Monnie31 today. It came in a huge box, so I thought it might be one of Monnie's epic packages, but it was mostly packing material! Cheesy

Inside, there were Yule stockings personalized for me and my partner, Ian:



And a wonderful "Blessed Yule" sign made of individual slices of tree branch. I love the scraps of rag tied on as ribbons. One of my absolute favourite decorative ideas!



Inside my stocking was a group of charmingly primitive ornaments. I especially like the slice of dried orange, and the two little pillows. One has cinnamon sticks in it, and the other seems to be something herbal as well.



There's also a small packet of dried elderberries, a pouch of (I'm guessing) mulled wine or cider spices, and a bag of dehydrated kefir grains. Monnie had told me this was coming, so I'm looking forward to trying it.



Ian's stocking contained a package of organic Echinacea tea and a tea ball in its own little red pouch, two bars of Monnie's famous homemade soap, a cake of shaving soap (which I'll claim) and a bottle of aftershave (bay laurel - lovely!). There's also a bag of lemongrass-scented bath salts, which Ian is already looking forward to trying in his bath tomorrow!

Finally, here's a picture of the Yule sign up on our door:


Thanks for all this, Monnie! I love it all!

I received a very modest-looking envelope from wendiek on Tuesday. It really wasn't over-stuffed at all. But TARDIS-like, it was much bigger on the inside...


First, there was a huge amount of special paper, including very beautiful Japanese papers, textured paper and others.


Then there were two navigational maps of fjords, some pages of a Dutch travel brochure, and a whole pile of postcards. She included a handy translation of the Dutch text for some of them. (The big, nude gal at the top, for example, says "The Bigger The Better" Cheesy)


Some labels from Dutch products including chocolate, coffee and beer. (Well, the beer is Belgian.) And pages from Dutch magazines and some from a book on plants.


A road map, some lovely sea life illustrations, a diagram of glassware and bottles, a "Caspar und Hobbes" cartoon, a library passport, some sheet music, and a few other interesting pieces of Dutch ephemera.


Here's a ferry schedule, some public transit tickets (I'm guessing), a panel of Dutch Christmas stamps, two coupons worth 20 Punten each (no idea what they're for), a photo negative strip, and a few blank pages from Wendie's old passport. On the card are some old Netherlands coins and a variety of wooden and metal buttons. (Not shown is a beautiful hand-painted ceramic bead that I forgot to include in the photo.)


A spectacularly fresh-looking Donald Duck comic from 1967 (in Dutch, of course.) Wow!


Two different drawings of the same  monster, by her son Joris. Very cool!


And finally, Wendie sent me the very first ATC she ever made! I love it a lot, and it contains a number of the ephemera bits I sent her earlier this month.

Thanks so much for all this stuff! I can hardly believe it's all mine!

Paper and Ephemera Swap - ROUND 10!
Gallery

It's been a couple of years since we got to share our paper and ephemera stashes, so let's see how much joy we can pack into an envelope! This will be an easy, low-stress swap for the period leading up to the holidays. I have followed the plan laid out by Dragonflower in Round 9. She suggested three options, so people can participate at the level that suits them best:

Option 1. You and your partner each send the other a regular No. 10 or A4 envelope full of papercrafting goodies. (That's a regular business-sized envelope.)

Option 2. You and your partner each send the other a standard (C4 or 9x12) manila envelope full of papercrafting goodies.

Option 3 Givers and Needers Option. If you have a lot of papercrafting items to share and would like to destash, you may want to be a Giver. If you want to get into papercrafting, but cant afford or find supplies, you may want to be a Needer. Each Giver will fill a 9x12 envelope with assorted papercrafting supplies and send this to their partnered Needer. In exchange, their partnered Needer will craft AT LEAST ONE small papercrafting item and send it to their Giver. (These items do not have to be made of the received supplies.)
***Please note: If you choose to be a Giver, you must give some description of what sort of papercrafting supplies you have to offer. If I have an uneven number of Givers and Needers, I will PM the last person(s) to sign up to see if you wish to choose one of the other two options.

Update: You may choose either ONE or TWO partners. If you choose to have two partners, you should choose different options for each, eg. Large Envelope and Giver, not Giver and Giver.

You must at least fill the agreed-upon size of envelope, but you are welcome to send more if you like. Just discuss what you plan to send with your partner, so no one feels like they didn't send enough. As this is a paper swap, no Delivery Confirmation Number is required, but if something goes horribly wrong and your envelope is lost, you will have to send your partner another one. This is a great swap for international participants, because you should be able to mail your envelope for standard letter postage, and you'll get cool foreign stuff!

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap: Paper and Ephemera Swap Round 10

Do you promise to post at least once a week in the swap thread? (Or PM your partner and organizer once a week)

Do you have any allergies that need to be taken into consideration?

Are there any common allergens in your home(pets, smoke..)?

What sort of items do you have to share? (This question is mandatory for Givers.)

I asked my partner SheepBlue for something small, as our little house has long ago filled up and display space is hard to find anymore. She responded brilliantly with this really quite tiny assemblage:



It's mostly natural materials picked up on her neighbourhood walks, but there are also tiny watch gears, a bottle cap and fragments of rusty metal included:





I love it a lot! It's amazing how much it's like my own style - semi-symmetrical, strings with beads and bits of stuff, mixture of natural and man-made... it's me! But even though it's small, finding wall space for it is still going to be tough, because I've already tried it in a few spots and it's clear that it won't go just anywhere. Cheesy

I had completely forgotten that, so long ago, Sabertooth Pixie had asked for my measurements and clothing sizes. So it was a complete surprise when I opened the rather bulky package that arrived today and found this:



She called it a tunic, I would call it a smock, but either way it fits remarkably well. (Coincidentally, I've just been reading a biography of the British sculptor Eric Gill, who always wore a similar garment, even though by the 1930's it was about 300 years out of fashion. Cheesy) In the very sweet note accompanying it, SP apologized for the fact that the seams weren't pressed, but her iron died while she was sewing, and she couldn't afford the time to go shop for a new one. I almost choked up when I got to the part where she apologized further for sending it without cuff buttons (the very handsome buttons were included separately) because in the move she couldn't find a needle to sew them on! Cry (As it happens it's okay, because I think I need a couple more buttons at the throat too, and I have four that will fit perfectly.)

I really like the colour, and while it's not everyday wear, I think it will go very will with a coat I'm working on. For next year's Harvest Festival, maybe.

Thanks again for this - it was SO worth the wait!

Wulf

PS: And would you believe she claims this was the first real garment she'd sewn, and she made it up by combining several patterns? Wow!

Eclectic Dreamer was finally able to get her package into the mail, and it arrived in record time.



First the BOS pages. These are not bound, but three separate signatures of 6 to 8 pages each. (So I can bind them in with other pages I'm collecting.) The Inanna page is a separate last-minute addition.

Some examples of pages:






These are just a few. Others include the healing powers of apple cider vinegar, poems, lots of spells, casting sigils, divination with stones and more.

And then there are the extras:



A beautiful hoop with a painted tree and shisha mirror moon (your shisha sewing is much tidier than mine!), and a set of tiny wooden runes - to go with pages of instruction and information. And a small stone eagle and two tiny bird beads, one mother-of-pearl and the other bone. Bought at the local gas station, she says!



A bottle of ruby-red St. John's Wort oil, some Alaskan alder-scented sea salt (which smells heavenly - I don't know whether I want to cook with it or bathe in it) and two bags of black seed (Nigella sativa) - there is information and recipes included in the BOS pages, of course.



And of course, writing and drawing stuff! Pencils, tons of erasers (always needed!), some very clever stick-on pencil holders and two white plastic things that I can't identify. Some kind of scraper?

Thanks for all this, Shawna! It was worth the wait. Cheesy

Here's a photo of the stamps. I didn't think to take one of the stamped image, though.


I have to apologize for the raw silk on the book cover - it was such a good colour, and seemed like such a nice texture, but as I'm sure you've found out by now, it picks up every speck of lint for miles around! Sad

Adolph Hungry Wolf is a favourite author. I especially like the photos of 19th c. chiefs and others in the book.

By the way, I discovered a new paper that I used in this book for the first time, and I can highly recommend it. It's Canson XL "Mix Media". This is the first paper I've found that is not only good for just about every kind of medium I've tried on it, from watercolour to pencil to pastels, but markers don't soak through it at all, and best of all, it gives a beautifully crisp line with calligraphy ink. (I like to use a really sharp nib, which scratches the surface of most papers and makes the ink bleed. This one doesn't, which is brilliant.) Best of all, it's CHEAP! A 14"x17" pad of 60 sheets (way more than I needed for this book) was about $20 at Deserres. Canson papers are really widely available, so it should be easy to find anywhere. I hope they keep making it, because I may never buy another kind of paper again! Cheesy

Glad you liked the book, and I hope you make good use of it.
