1761  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: WWP Round 28 - Litha 2011 (Signups 05-08-11 to 05-16-11; Sendouts 06-13-11) on: May 18, 2011 08:27:59 AM
I'm glad your honesty was rewarded, Maman, especially as I think I may be the one to benefit from it!

I envy you being so far along. I'm still barely into the thinking stage. No good ideas have come yet, but I'm working hard on it.

Close ups, please! ManiCcrafter, do you have any detail shots of the tree-ring-thing at the top of the photo? It's very intriguing! And just seeing the title and cover of that book makes me covet it, even without really know what it's about!

Hope you're feeling better, Holistic. If you're having the same kind of weather as we are it's not been exactly vitalizing!

I love this! And I'm intrigued and impressed by your painting technique. How did you get that marbleized effect? The only way I can imagine is by loading a fan brush with paint and very lightly skimming it over the surface. But I think there's more to it than that! I hope you'll share the secret.

I can see that the chamber itself was a die-cut kit of some sort, and obviously it can't have ever made anything but a fairy wish chamber, but what did the manufacturer call it? So clever of you to have spotted its real purpose! Cheesy

And finally one last question: how tiny is it? I just realized I have no idea of the scale of what I'm looking at. (More fairy magic at work, I suspect.)

Okay, I've jumped the gun a little and sent out partner PMs now while I have a few minutes free time. I'm sure no one will mind. Wink

If you don't have your partner's questionnaire in your mailbox, PM me and I'll try to find out where it went. Embarrassed

"But wait! I thought I'd still have time to sign up!" Don't worry, we're not going to close the swap until this evening and if any last-minute swappers want to jump on the train as it's pulling out of the station, we'll find room for you!

A reminder to all the swappers that Monnie31 and I are kind of tag-team organizing, so we haven't divided up into groups. When you need to PM about the swap, always send to both of us.

Happy swapping!

I think "bouncing off the walls with excitement" is the perfect state of mind for making jester hats! Hang in there for a few more hours.

A reminder to anyone lurking or fence-sitting that sign-ups close tomorrow. Monnie and I hope to get partners assigned early in the evening, so get ready! Cheesy

And welcome, Strawberryh! Boy, have you got lots of crafting going on!

1767  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Re: Christopher's Room, my first big installation! on: May 14, 2011 07:27:02 PM
I want to live in Christopher's room! Cheesy (And I want one of those books!)

This is so far beyond most art installations that it needs its own designation.

Wow! How much does it weigh?

Boy, you are really going wild with this! I especially like the bracelet with the rubber rings and the one with the daisy. Where you do buy your rings and scales?

1770  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Matchbox Swap round 5 Gallery on: May 13, 2011 12:48:23 PM
I just think it's very funny that at least three of us had the same idea of turning the matchbox into a suitcase! Mine came when someone commented that an early box in the Gallery (can't remember which one) reminded her of the inside of an antique suitcase. And that reminded me that I have a piece of art deco lining paper from a 1930's trunk that I've hoarding. (It's the paper lining the matchbox suitcase.) The rest just followed from what materials were available in my stash.

My new favourites in this Gallery (and it changes with each new page!) are the Japanese ones. Swap Envy! Tongue  And thanks Teachart for introducing us to Marcel Dzama. How can I have missed him?

And never mind a matchbox suitcase swap, how about a tiny book swap?
