1791  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: June 15, 2011 05:59:41 PM
I've got no objections either, Fullmoon. And let's face it, Lughnassah is going to be your last opportunity to organize any swap for a while, because the tsunami of college is going to hit you a month later and it'll be all you can do to keep your head above water for the next year or so, let alone organize a swap!

I love the concealed poison bottle pendant and the ID badge, but I can't quite get my head around the elbow cuffs. I think I'm not the only one who would like to see an explanatory action shot if that's possible.

Wait a minute, you tie-dyed a cake? How is that possible? It looks great, however you did it!

Wow! What enthusiasm for future organizing duties! This is so good to see, because we all love these WWP swaps, and it would be terrible to see them stop because nobody stepped up to take over when the current organizer wants a break.

Of course I hadn't realized until now just how much work Hawkeyes_Girl (and Rhonda before her) had to put into these to keep it going - eight a year is a lot! My suggestion for preventing future burn-out is that it should always alternate so that nobody has to do two in a row. That gives you time to completely finish up one before having to start on the next one. (Because in reality they overlap quite a bit.)

I miss the card swaps too, and I thought maybe it would be good to have one for Samhain. I'm willing to take on organizing that as a separate but parallel swap.

Thanks, MizzK - I don't often get called "handsome" anymore. And I think a Steampunk Octopus swap is the most brilliant thing I've heard all day. (And it's been a busy day...)

Herbs/oils/crystals sounds great. I think this sounds like one you should organize. Wink I have to admit I'd totally forgotten that the next swap needs to be set up before the last one is finished! This is a lot harder than it seems!

Reminder that today is sendout day! Lets get those packages in the mail!

MamanT, it looks like Trois-Rivires and Shawinigan are on strike today, so that will probably delay your shipment, but you should be able to mail it anyway even if it doesn't leave the local post office for a few days.

Just wow is right! Even one of those headpieces would have been amazing. It's so easy to get carried away, isn't it? Cheesy

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!

1799  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Brothers Grimm Swap-SU June10-17 SO July 11 on: June 11, 2011 05:47:18 PM
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?
