1641  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Small Steampunk Swap Gallery on: June 13, 2011 04:32:28 AM
It turns out I'm one of the people you're waiting for photos from, and thanks to KimmyLynne for pointing it out to me. You see, I did take photos, and I did post them here in the gallery (I remember exactly what I said in the message), but it seems nobody but me ever saw it. Either I only posted the message with my mind, not with my keyboard, or there was some glitch on Craftster that erased the message immediately afterward. Or I just realized there's a strong third possibility: that I did compose the message, previewed it to make sure the photos worked ok, but forgot to actually click "Post". Craftster does not remind you if you do that.

Anyway, here's the great package I got from KimmyLynne82:


KimmyLynne had pointed out that the Customs form on the outside of the package sometimes gives away the surprise, but hers made it even more mysterious -- "contents: paper mache book." WTF? But it turns out that was precisely what it contained. And what a beaut! I especially love the keyhole escutcheon, and you can't see it very well in this photo but the label frame just contains faded, wrinkled paper, as if the label had been worn away by a terrible storm or something.

The book is hollow, of course, and inside...


My own pair of goggles! This is so funny, of course, because I sent KimmyLynne a pair of goggles too. And these are beautifully done - the painting and little details like the rivets totally transforms them. (And much more comfortable than the ones I made!)


Action shot. I know this is blurry, but I liked the accidental "We Are Devo" pose too much not to use it.

Thanks for this great package. Since I don't have an adorable squirrel to put my goggles on, I'll have to find somewhere to wear them myself!

I almost bought a copy of the Brothers Grimm in a second-hand bookshop today, but realized I didn't have quite enough cash. And in the same way, my first thought on seeing this swap was "That's for me!" but now I've realized I really don't have enough free time for swapping right now. Cry But I'll be stalking the gallery for sure.

The Dor illustration of Little Red Riding Hood you've used is a favourite of mine. I love the expression on her face!

All we can do it hope our packages avoid strike delays and arrive okay. Mine went in the mail this morning.

How is everyone else doing?

Wow! If that's a teaser, I can barely imagine how big the package itself is!

Woo hoo!  I just checked, yours is in the USA!

Safe! One Canadian package down, two to go. I see that Qubec City is the latest Canada Post strike target, so that may delay mail between MamanT and I.

Just a reminder send-outs are on Monday. (I've actually been mistakenly thinking it was tomorrow, but I finally looked at a calendar and realized my mistake!)  Let's try to send on time if at all possible, so people's packages have some chance of arriving by the 21st! (Postal disruptions permitting...)

Congratulations on finishing exams, Betsy!

Captain McNutty is my favourite thing ever! I can't believe how well the goggles fit, though -- Furdinand must be quite a big fellow.

Ow! Sorry to hear that, Impchild! I hope you'll be better without them.

Way to go with the early sending, Monnie! Mine will probably be in the mail on Friday.

Can we have a final, four-days-from-sendout check-in from everyone? If you haven't posted here for a few days, just let us know how things are going with you.
