1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: True Blood Swap Round 3 Gallery on: June 06, 2010 06:09:22 PM
I love the glass box, the bag is gorgeous and the fairy 8 ball wand? How on earth did you think of it?!

I have to give credit to you, sazzra, for the initial concept of a fairy wand! You've been so great to me since I've joined Craftster (and really patient with my 1000+ questions) that you've become my self-appointed Fairy Godmother! (Self-appointed by me!  Wink) In your infinite wisdom, you paired me with my perfect SP, rockmygypsysoul. JoAnn's profile and questionnaire completed the concept of a wand that could foretell the future. On certain days, don't we all wish for something to tell us whether getting out of bed is worth it?  Wink

Also, Arielthemermaid, you should get an award for supreme packaging. I always just shove stuff in the box.
Simple paranoia on my part! Cheesy I was afraid rockmygypsysoul would receive a Faery box filled with glass shards, teeny glass marbles, and lots of ribbon!

I am simply MAD about all the different necklaces, earrings, and the Fantasia ring made by everyone! And the tees are all fab! All the bags, aprons, plushies (Luv the Sookies and Godric), iron-ons, towels, pillowcases, and the glass box (Sigh! that's really, really fab!). There are waaay too many awesome things in this swap to list what I'm wisting! (Practically everything!)  Grin

Rockmygypsysoul--Now that I am at real computer I can post a proper reply to your wonderful post and PMs.  Cheesy (My Barbie-sized keyboard or the touch screen keyboard on my phone does not lend itself to real emailing.  Angry)

I am SO VERY EXCITED that you loved your package!! I'm still on Cloud 9 today!  Grin Since this was my 1st swap, I was beyond nervous! This has been a truly fantastic experience!

I must admit I asked your Wishing Wand when your package would be delivered. This was the answer (and one of the teaser pics):

It said next week! (It works! It works! My inner crafting demon is now doing its best impersonation of a mad scientist!  Grin)

Here are some additional pics of the Wishing Wand on its stand:



With the sample questions:


In its box:


Directions for use:


When you have a day you don't have a question for it, ask it when I'll get Eric and when to buy a lottery ticket!  Grin

To be completely honest, I've just begun making jewelry. Your bracelet is the 1st real piece I've made. I know it turned out really heavy (sorry about that) but I couldn't seem to stop charming! I tried to make sure the bracelet wouldn't be uncomfortable for you to wear (with your Fibromyalgia) by distributing the weight evenly on both sides of the bracelet. Let me know if you experience any problems with it. (I don't mind critiques at all and I love learning new techniques.)

Here's a close up (without a label on the blood vial):

I went round and round about the label for the blood vial. I wanted it to be from Eric, but the Eric label didn't coordinate. So I went with the "V" label. I'm so glad you read my mind!  Cheesy A dear friend of mine who lives in Korea sent me the coffin (cough-in) charm for your bracelet.

I so loved your bookmark, I made one for myself. (Shrinky Dinking is my other new obsession!)

Your pic turned out much better.

And a few other pics of the "V" sample:


Sending you another long distance hug! Enjoy all of it! I'm stalking my postal lady tomorrow! Ariel

Derrrr, sorry! I'm still in vampire mode, so BitTorrent made me think I was missing out on a programme about a flurry of biting vampires! Heeheehee.... (My next project is Haunted Mansion, so everything will be ghosties then!)

I'm keeping myself out of trouble by drooling over all the goodies everyone has received. Grin I'm totally in love with the different glasses (I haven't tried etching cream yet!) I have no idea what the freezer paper stencil is used for, but I want it....as well as the Fangtasia tees, the pillowcases,the fang pouch, the Eric charm necklace, and the tee made by lydiaharper. Oh, and the SIGNED TB book.... Shocked I'm so jealous of all of you! After drooling and lusting over everyone else's haul, I hope, hope, hope rockmygypsysoul likes her package. (I'm feeling very nervous right now.)

rockmygypsysoul--I began stalking my postal lady today! Fortunately, she knows me and doesn't mind!  Grin

BTW, what's BitTorrent?  Huh

AWESOME! I absolutely adore it and I'm adding it to my stash of things to make this lifetime. (Unless you volunteer to make one for me, I already have the game. Tongue) I'm so jealous!! Fabulously creative! Hitting this rocks!

Good afternoon to all!  Smiley

I've completed three items and am working on other items and extras....I'm still having a ball creating for my SP, rockmygypsysoul! Only problem I'm having is way too many ideas and not enough time...I can't wait to post teaser pics, even though I'm a newbie, too!  Grin

Rockmygypsysoul- BTW, I'm originally from your town! Ain't that a co-inky-dink??  Shocked I hope your TB package rocks you!  Cheesy

I have crafted through the weekend, and I have two items complete, two approx. 75% complete, and one at 10% complete. I'm also having the first swap jitters, so I may be overdoing, I hope not underdoing (I'm still working out the point system), but I having a tremendous amount of fun!  Grin So many ideas, so little time! I thought I had a large stash (that whole "Whoever dies with the most wins" thing), but I'm obviously not even in the same league with Sazzra. I bow to your awesomeness! Wink

I have completed my 1st project and am on to my 2nd project. And I'm having so much fun, it should be illegal!  Grin

one teen blue hair, one teen purple hair, various stages of goth gear and pink pony tail  fluffy things.

 EC <evil Child> states: "hey that looks cool"
 EC friend: " yeah cool I want one, can you <EC> make me one?"
EC:  " nahh just wait till my mom finishes and get that one she can just do another, its not like she has anything else to do!"

This is why sharks eat their young!

RavenzTarot-
OMG! You live in my house!  Wink DD (darling, demented, devilish daughter) found my TB ideas notebook. Now she wants a Fangbanger backpack charm. Not happening. I can just imagine the call from the school. But my mom made it!  Embarrassed (I'm not making it for the swap, so I can post about it.)
