1801  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Small Steampunk Swap (Signups through 4/15, Sendouts 5/17) on: April 05, 2011 06:50:33 PM
I think half the reason I like hosting these Steampunkish swaps is that I see all the same people... and new ones too! I feel like we have our own little community within Craftster sometimes...

And one of the main reasons I'm hoping to join (apart from Steampunky fun, of course) is to get to swap with an entirely new bunch of people than I usually do.

So Sucker Punch is worth seeing, is it? I totally wouldn't have guessed from the ad campaign. Thanks for the heads up!

And finally, what exactly is dieselpunk? Like Tank Girl or Mad Max?

Oh my, this gallery is just exploding with pyrotechnic brilliance! Teag, you've achieved something that nobody else has ever done: you've left me literally open-mouthed and clutching my head in Macaulay Culkin-like amazement. I can't get my head around the scale of it, though. How tiny are those performing fleas, anyway? There are so many of them to fit into just one box. And what a box!

And Audio's bearded cadaver does make me feel more at home. Just brilliant! The crackle finish is to die for. (Oops! No pun intended!)

Please, PLEASE do Wicked School House next? Or Wicked Shop Keepers. Or Wicked Craftsterers!!!!
  I love "Wicked School House"! Maybe "Little Shop of Craftsters"?

Wait a minute, you say this is the first dress you've ever made, you did it without a pattern, and it was done in a day? Shocked It's a good thing you didn't know anything about dressmaking, or you would have realized how completely impossible that is and never even tried! I am so impressed! The dress is lovely, you look beautiful in it, and I can't believe you already have wisteria blooming there! Thanks so much for sharing this with us - it's an inspiration.

A great design! I think you and Sophie have great potential in millinery! Hope the parade goes well. I'm sure she'll be a star. Cheesy

My little one LOVES the mobile now that she is flailing limbs and can see things more clearly.  It hangs above her swing and she sometimes kicks at it to make the bell chime (most likely not intentional) and she loves to stare at it!  Thank you so much!!!!!

That's lovely to hear! I hope it continues to make her happy!

My first thought on seeing sheepblue's tin was that it looked like it had been freshly dug up from the ground. And the inside is a great surprise - especially Chuckles.

Millie and Christine make an appearance in my tin, too. Probably their final one, alas.

I'm going to apologize in advance for the tin I've sent to Amarylisroze. Everyone else's have been funny, sweet and lighthearted even when they feature murderous performing bears, but mine got away from me and became rather grim. I hope it doesn't spoil the fun in this brilliant gallery.

I agree, ffrogg, the picture HG chose for this swap is perfect! It got an audible "ahhhh!" from me when it came up! Very inspiration in so many ways.

Mandykaye, I agree that you don't have to make candles from scratch; you can dress them with herbs or oils for specific magical purposes, carve them, decorate them with pressed herbs and flowers (just dip them briefly into melted wax and press on) or lots of other things. If you do want to make candles, an easy way to do it is with the beeswax sheets, which are easy to cut to shape and roll around a wick to make a perfectly good (and nice-smelling) candle.

Or the crafty side of it can be a candle holder, lantern, etc. with the candles as a bonus.

We actually do dream about a Craftster commune pretty frequently! If it happens I promise we won't make anyone sleep next to goats.  Cheesy
Unless we want to, of course!

I read through a couple dozen messages yesterday before I realized everyone's avatars had been replaced by rubber ducks. Either I'm dangerously un-observant, or that's a more subtle change than one might think!

I've just sent in my application to move into the dorm as soon as it's built! This solves so many problems here at home, I can't begin to tell you.
