1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Dia de los Muertos / Mexican Folk Art Swap GALLERY (send outs 5/30) on: August 14, 2011 08:42:43 AM
Hi everyone, just a quick post to say, the missing package - turned up!!  Last Wednesday it was delivered, and I was so so so so pleased!  I honestly thought someone had pinched it in transit.  But it was just taking it's sweet time to get here - I guess Canada to Leeds, is a long way after all.  Safe to say I absolutely adore everything Mamaedgar made for me - and am already using pretty much every part of it.  Without further ado - pictures!!
A Structured handbag - which as you can probably tell is already jammed full of my stuff - already received so many compliments on this - I love it!

An amazing wallet - which was just what I needed - the detail in this is awsome - loads of space for my cards, change and notes (not that there's ever many of those)

An amaaaasing crochet hair band with a skelly embroidered on it - I love this so much, sorry the pic is a bit blurry - I think I was feeling a bit blurry that day....

I don't think I've seen shrink plastic here in the UK, but I love these necklaces, I have worn the skull one already and can't wait to wear the other two

And on to the extras - I was really spoiled rotten:
Rubber skellys - currently adorning my craft room. and some offcuts, which I can't wait to use and some fancy buttons, which I'e already put on to hair clips!


Thanks again Mamaedgar, I love it all - so worth the wait.

Ooh mamaedgar, it's all so beautiful!! I could weep!  I'm so sorry it didn't arrive, but thank you for your efforts, you never know it still might be stuck in transit.  I will let you know if it does turn up. Thank you again it all looks wonderful

Yea me too! Is it one of those super vacuum cleaners they're on? I love it when the two fall off and just lay there like "well there's nothing I can do about this now..." hehe

Hi guys, well I'd love to say making the placemats and coasters was more elaborate then it actually was, but it was a print out, cut out and stick on job!  I had made pin-up girlie ones once before following this tute:

So just used the same process but using mamaedgar's picture, my tip would be that a good printer / resolution of the pic helped.

Hi All,

Erica - I'm sorry to hear your sad news - it's awful when life throws these things at you. I hope you're doing OK.

My partner, Mamaedgar,has also been having a rough time of it of late, she received from me last week and asked me to post pictures.  It's taken me a few days, and the photos are a bit crumby, I was a little late finishing this up you see and really wanted to get it sent out on the 31st, so rushed them, but here goes:

We had chatted about things for the home and Mamaedgar had expressed a wish for an apron:


So I thought I'd make her a matching oven glove:


She had also posted this picture on her blog, it was one her and her husband bought on honeymoon in Mexico (sorry I AM a stalker *blush*) - so I made it into some placemats and coasters:


I know a few of us fell in love with the Felty Skellys - and my partner was no different, so I made her napkin rings and napkins to match - my favourite is the pirate :-) (ooh and threw in some Dolly Mixtures as well, you can just see in the background, she became addicted when visiting the UK hee hee)


And last but not least, a cross stitch, which is (one) of my favourite crafts / passions.  I really love this pattern, just downloaded from the net, I'll get the link if anyone is interested.


Sorry for a bit of a waffle there - I really enjoyed this swap.  And some of the amazing things coming up here in the gallery are beyond belief.  I hope you liked your package Mamaedgar and that lady luck turns your way soon

Oh no! I am riding close to the wire on this one, which is very unlike me with swaps. Can I be allowed to post on Tuesday 31st as Mon 30th is s bank holiday in the UK and the post offices will be shut? Pwetty please!?!

Yusss I received yesterday from the fabulous KatMonstah and oh my gosh it is amazing, in fact it's going to get two postings.  One here and one in the Day of the Dead swap which I am partaking and I'll show you for why.....

Firstly it came in a teeny tiny pouch, which was stuffed with embroidery threads as packing - amazing.  Then when I opened it, it was wrappend in a little note and then... I squeee-ed, skulls!  My favourite!
Front: Back:
All my goodies - they are all going to get used!


My fav's - teeeny tiny skull beads!  And the smallest book I have ever seeen!  With loads of different pages and pictures including my pin-up girl!

Kat, I can't begin to thank you for the thoughtful-ness and time you have clearly put in to this.  You have been a great swap partner.  Thank you
