1771  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: WWP Samhain/Halloween Swap Round 23 (Signups 9-25 to 10-6, So 10-25) on: September 30, 2010 04:52:27 AM
The 5-Star Spells podcast talked about reducing family difficulties (especially over the coming holidays) a few weeks ago. They tend to favour sweetening them up rather than driving them away (often not possible with family) with honey jars and similar techniques. One of their simplest ideas was just to have a candle burning on a plate of sugar or keep a bowl of sweetened water in the house when the family visits.

All right! Cover boards are on, endpapers pasted down, I think I'm pretty much done. Whew!

Now just some quality time, as Pogo says, with the pages themselves.

I think I'm going to sit and watch this one too. I'm in Saturn's Harvest Time Healing Card Swap, and I think that'll have to do for now. But you can be sure I'll continue to visit, look and comment throughout!

wulf, you gotta tell me us what you'd need in your card!

I know, I know! I've been thinking about this all weekend! I don't need to be healed of broken limbs or a broken heart; I've always been a skinny beanpole so weight-loss isn't an issue, so what's my problem?  I think it's lack of focus. I take on what seem to be very reasonable challenges, and then they seem to suck up all my available time and leave me stressed and feeling overwhelmed. I look at the amount of stuff that other people get done and see that the problem isn't the workload, it's me. I need to learn to live a more focussed life and stop wasting so much time. Send me help with vision, clarity, focus and purpose!

Thanks, my son helped me "decorate" the envelopes today, we had so much fun, why didn't I discover this before?

Monnie, I love the fact that in three days you can go from asking "How do you make an envelope?" to producing these! You're unstoppable! Cheesy And does "Why didn't I discover this before?" refer to envelope-making, card-making, craft swaps...?

A three-sided bag! Saturn, that's so brilliant! And the shell necklace really is beautiful.

I love sealing wax too. I've been working towards making my own (got the recipes, got most of the ingredients) but haven't tried it yet.

Love this! I can see that everyone's interpretation of how to get pages "started" will be totally different. Nothing anyone's done has been like mine, and I bet we're going to get thirteen totally different ways of working, which is exactly as it should be!

My favourite page is the mummy. So brilliant.

Glad to see so many familiar people from the last card swap!

Another tip for sending stones and other hard, round objects: make a tiny bag out of bubble-pack or tape it to a piece of bubble-pack. It seems to help ease the stone through the handling machinery rather than having it tear the envelope and escape.

I do wonder what effect a small stone has when it gets loose inside the sorting machines!

I was even dreaming about the journal - dreamt I was folding the pages and they were lining up. Tongue
I hope it wasn't just a dream!

I finally found the perfect material for the cover, only to find out (the hard way) that there's no way to glue it without bleed-through. But I found a good replacement today and it's clamped and drying. Hope to get the body of the book glued in tonight, and then I can just fool around with adding stuff to pages until the last minute.

That porcupine quill is enormous! It's very beautiful, too, and is part of a great package.  It is a clever idea for an altar cloth, as Morrigan said, and the fabrics prints are quite hypnotic!
