These are great, and I especially like the use of coffee grounds as steam in that first pic - very nice.

Yay, I'm glad you liked it lacey0828! I actually found the film reel at goodwill the day before I mailed your package.

Chameleonhound, did you paint the tree first and then stencil the bird on the t-shirt? I love the layered effect! Smiley

I actually painted the owl first and then was careful to paint around it. I debated making a stencil for the tree for a long time, and then went ahead and free-handed it.

I got an excellent birthday package from h-chan today! Unfortunately, I won't be able to take decent pictures until Sunday, but I will have them up then!

Update: Pictures!!
The whole box:

(And since they didn't make it to the other photos, thank you for the tasty chocolates!)

I am in love with my wisty surprise Grin
Don't you just love this bookmark? I had to put it in the appropriate book, of course. I now am the envy of my whole family. On the part that's inside the book, it's the Wicked Witch of the West saying "Who killed my sister? Who killed the Wicked Witch of the East? Was it you?"

She also supplied me with exactly what I was looking for:

It's a fabric map of the US so I can map out my travels. I love all the little images for each state. This is going to be embroidered and marked out, and then I can put it on my wall or roll it up and take it with me! (Since I'll probably be moving again soon).

And lastly, let me point out this fabulous card:

To those of you who don't recognize him, it's the clown from the drum cover in Gandalf Murphy and the Slambovian Circus of Dreams! Never heard of 'em? I'm not surprised, but you should check them out. H-chan, I don't know if you knew about them, but you certainly picked an excellent image for the card.  Smiley

Thank you for a wonderful extended birthday h-chan!

When I saw the thumbnail, I totally had an "ooooh, shiny!" moment Smiley. This is beautiful.

Got my items planned out and by tonight they should be sketched out and in good order... I hope I don't miss your b-day by too much lacey0828!

Warning: Lotsa photos 'cause I got totally spoiled by Super-Ted Cullen!

I had heard on my way home from Maine that I got a box from the UK and I may have driven a little faster than necessary because of it...

And boy what a box!

Everything was wrapped in toy story wrapping paper, which I didn't get a photo of because my pup thought the paper was for her...

The first item was rather serendipitous; somehow we each decided to make the other a Sunnydale HS yearbook!  Grin Except SuperTed made hers with blank paper, which is perfect for sketching future projects...

And tucked inside were a mutant enemy logo transfer, a Jayne postcard...
And all of these!

She saw that I'd been in some inchie swaps and decided to give 'em a try. These are awesome! Considering that it takes me an entire swap to come up with a mere 10 inchies, and that she made 26 amazing inchies in the first go, I am highly envious of her micro-scale skills Smiley I'm thinking I'm going to have to make something to display these on.
Here are some of my favorites:

Next is a Buffy-themed clock that she made with a CD. What an excellent idea! If I ever get a computer with light-scribe, I might just have to try it for myself Smiley. But for now, this is proudly displayed on my wall.

Then was this excellent bracelet, where she somehow managed to incorporate all of the best of Whedonverse:

  • Woody for toy story
  • Umbrella for Penny's Song and Kaylee's parasol
  • Teapot for Giles "Tea is soothing, and I wish to be tense"
  • Chinese symbol for Firefly
  • Firefly charm for Firefly
  • Bag to highlight Buffy's girlishness, despite slayerness
  • "Bunnies, bunnies, it must be BUNNIES"  Grin
  • Moon and stars for space exploration in Firefly
  • Wings for Angel <3

I'm thinking she's hooked on Firefly.  Wink

Next were these excellent Firefly and Angel shirts. I'm wearing the Firefly one as I write this, and I must say I LOVE the fit and it's amazingly comfortable. I would post an action shot, but all the pics I take seem to be coming out poorly. Boo.

The fronts:

The backs:

That's right, everybody, "Because real vampires don't sparkle". I do enjoy that the font does sparkle though. I absolutely love this - it's one of the things I requested before I knew my partner was a twilight fan. But she made it anyway and did such an awesome job that she says she'll be making one for herself too Wink

And next, and possibly my favorite of all, is a tote featuring the thoroughbred of sin himself!

EEEEEeeeeeeee I love it. And whenever I look at the letter I start singing the song to myself.

Last, but certainly not least, is my very own Billy/Dr. Horrible ami! I think he looks like he's up to something... or love-struck. Or both.

Thank you Super-Ted Cullen! for the best swap yet!

These are awesome! I find myself thinking of wardrobes to go with them...

Hehe, thanks for keeping that van from crushing anyone into debris, Kochopia  Cheesy

Yay, I'm glad you liked everything Super-Ted Cullen!! And I'd be happy to post a few pics for you, especially since I'm in the pic-posting mood from getting pictures together of the amazing box-full you sent me! (They'll be up shortly).

The shoes:

And here's one of the shirt:

And if you ever get any action shots, I'd love to see them!

Yay, I'm so glad you liked everything Madibug377! It was fun to come up with crafts and supplies for you, and I hope I helped get you as addicted to Craftster swaps as I am Grin
Oh, and somewhere hiding in there amongst the stuff was a tassel for a fez, if you decide to make one Wink

Attempting to out-smart my printer to get this craft finished! UGH.
But on a happier note, what can be better than a cat version of Blink?
