1  Re: Medicinal or Herblore Swap 2017 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by IsikkahJai on: March 15, 2017 12:18:07 PM
Ugghhh fianlly took pictures! Been a weirdly weeiirrddd week Shocked Sarasmile SPOILLEDDD MEEEEEEEE!!!!

The WHOLE package. I was/STILL AM elated about this box of earthy goodness. Stones from her own collection, embroidered bag AND altar cloth, a wonderful scented oil bracelet (lava beads can be dabbed with oil and they will absorb it!) And probably the best thing ever on the face of the planet: hand cut cherry Wood Rune Set. (She also sent be a beautiful clay herbal imprint necklace that isn't pictured. I shall remedy that when my phone is off the charger Wink )

Aren't these just the sh*t??!! Her dad hand cut them and she wood burned each of them herself \O/ The first one to roll into my hand was the hourglass shaped one, Dagaz. And it's been following me ever since  Cheesy It's so funny too because I had actualyl asked another crafter on here to make me some for a personal swap (Which got put on the back burner (SORRY ABBEE!!) and now I have my very own set! I love them. The vibe with me so well Smiley

Carnelian, (rose?) quartz, blue tigers's eye, Adventrine, and clear quartz. I THINK. Correct me if I'm wrong Sara  Cheesy Adventrine and Carnelian are "my" stones so she really hit these spot on.

lava bead bracelet. I have to purchase some oil to rub on them. All I have is tea tree, which doesn't exactly smell nice.

Close up on the Rune bag, Isn't it divine?

A package from the heart. I'm so grateful and blessed to have had Sara as my partner. Thank you!!  Kiss Kiss Grin

2  Merry Saint Birthentine's swap? in New Swap Theme Ideas by IsikkahJai on: March 06, 2017 01:41:44 PM

I probably shouldn't admit this openly but I'm a terrible procrastinator when it comes to gift giving. I have every good intention to start, finish, and give the present on time but somehow it kinda ends up a month late. Or several. (I'm sorry Dfabbric! and Silver Moon!) So I propose we have a swap to make amends for a person, or persons, that we may have forgotten last year. It can be a belated gift OR a gift for someone for the future so you can put your mind at ease and not worry about it being belated. One less thing on your list!

I would probably open this toward the end of March with send outs in may, after Easter madness. I'm going to propose a 3 point system, which equals: 1 LARGE -OR- 1 MEDIUM AND ONE SMALL -OR- THREE SMALLS Or roughly 4+ hours of work/$30+ $$

All those extra candies didn't make it very far xD Why are kinder eggs illegal to send? Cuz dannggggg Americans are missing out! I shared them with my cousin, who was so touched she recieved something from the swap Cheesy Which bring me to the next little bit of awesomeness that is Annchen. She sent a little extra for my Swedish-lovin' cousin. A wee Winnie the Pooh book! Excellent beginners book to learn the language Cheesy

5  Re: ~*Harry Potter Craftalong - Ostara Term 2017*~ Join anytime! in Craftalongs by IsikkahJai on: February 08, 2017 02:54:26 PM
Class: Headmistress Challenge
House: Gryffindor!!
Item: Pendants, tempera-ture and tempera-mental  Angry
Description: I was working with clay recently for a swap I did and decided to try something from my pinterest while I was waiting for the clay to bake. I've loved these clay pendants for so long and I just went for it but I don't usually use so much small detail in my work. Boyyy did I figure out the HARD WAY how hard it was to manipulate clay down to a quarter sized level Angry First the clay stuck to the table because I didn't have a proper surface to roll it out on. Then it stuck to my fingers, ruining the shapes I created. and THEN the clay that was stuck to the table hitch-hiked onto my other clean clay balls and smudged them with color. GWAAAHHHHHHHHH!!!!! All that and I still had to put the clay bits ON the pendants. Oh gawd I wanted to table flip the whole thing by the end of the fifth one. I thought Cherry Blossoms were supposed to inspire peace and love! HA! (They did turn out great though  Wink there will be 10 all together for my kids' teachers.)

Class: Alchemy ANNNNNNDDDDDD Iron Chef Hogwarts: CURRY
House: Gryffindor!!
Item: Curry Paella
Description: This recipe in the past has never really come out right for me. I kept tweaking it and tweaking it and I could never get the proportions right. It was too spicy or too plain or the veggies were over cooked or the rice was under cooked...whatever bad could go wrong with it, it's happened with this recipe! It was always wrong. This time, naturally, it was under spiced (I ran out of curry powder) but! I made up for it by adding some delicious herbs and some more veggies. And a tad of Sriracha. Cuz who doesn't love Sriracha??

Recipe: https://www.mrfood.com/One-Pots/Skillet-Paella

(Yes, that's Squirtle in the background  Grin He's for another project...)

6  'Shipping Swap: Two hearts made one! in New Swap Theme Ideas by IsikkahJai on: January 17, 2017 04:19:14 PM

'Shipping as in relationshipping. (Apparently that's the term for it now.)

 Kiss Kiss Love is in the air!! Kiss Kiss

Do you have a favorite pair you'd like to see together? It can be an existing pair or two individuals who have never been. How about Katniss choosing Gale instead of Peeta? Or Zuko and Katara making steam from Avatar! Or how about Inuyasha and Kikyo together and alive at last? We can do it! Now is the time to vent the most swoon-worthy pairings that warm the cockles of your heart! <3

For this swap I propose 1 medium or 2 smalls, sweet and easy, with one of our partner's chosen pairings. Research may be required Wink Anything/anyone goes!!

Basic time line is "after Valentine's day"  Cheesy I have a free schedule so if there's a good time for y'all to swap, just respond with it and we'll figure it all out. Probably the standard two week sign up and 1 month crafting. No rush for this. YA CAN'T RUSH ART---OR LOVE!!!!

7  My little Pony Swap in New Swap Theme Ideas by IsikkahJai on: January 09, 2017 06:46:37 AM

It's probably too late to do a "Hearts and Hooves" style swap (unless we agree to have the S.O. be after Valentines day). So how about a MLP general swap? New episodes got updated on Netflix for season 6 and I'm excited to dive in again!

I was thinking maybe a large and two smalls ---OR--- a medium and two smalls with a typical sign up and craft time. Just need to decide a date  Grin And possibly an organizer cuz I'm rubbish at it but will do it if no one else steps up.

Hoorayyyy I received my boxes from ecopp today!  Grin I thought I was going to wait until I could stuff my daughter's stockings as well. HA!! I was so intimidated by the boxes I had to stop stressing out about them and just open everything. Like ripping off a glittery mesmerizing band-aid  Cheesy I'm so happy I didn't wait. She COMPLETELY got me. I love my packages but ESPECIALLY my stocking. LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!!

He's a bescarfed Totoro!! I am in love with him!

99% of the package. I was wearing the jewelry. Isn't it so colorful and lovely??

Some colorful and glittery shirts for me and my girls. They were SO SURPRISED! They loved them. Rainbow dash on the purple, A Pea shooter on the pink and Joy from "inside Out" on the green. (Her arm is slightly coming off so I will be applying some glue later before showing it off Wink

A canvas with a delightfully cozy message on it. I have sooo much wall space to chose from! I wonder where I'll put it?

From my pinterest, a shrinky-dink clothes line choker. I put it on immediately and it hasn't come off. It's one of my favorite things in the package. And a Totoro ring! (Surprised it hasn't been stolen yet actually...)

And something I know the Harry Potter fans will love, a wee scrap booking kit! ecopp put the pages together in such a fun and interesting way. They fold out and have extra papers so I can write on them and make it a journal or a mini fan fic story. So genius. LOVE! Here's a few pages to give you a taste.

And then a very special item that I adore completely and will find a place of honor for. A light bulb "hot air" balloon.

The other items I got were a giant super fun snow globe, two figurines that are looking to have a snowball fight, some yummy chocolate candy, a giant baymax ornament and some very appreciated glittery gift tags! I have cards galore but gift tags are in low supply. Very useful and festive!

I was stalked very well. Ecopp did a wonderful job and she nailed my favorite things. Got a little of everything. She's amazing.  Kiss Sorry for the photo fat post  Cheesy

Well, took me a minute to figure out the craftster hosting thing since photobucket was acting up on my phone O.O Interesting process. BUT! I prevailed and now can show off my goodies from Wavelight23478 and teag!

An ingenious use of a tea light by Wavelight! It flickers like real fire! What's funny is that this very image of Snape was on the card I sent to HER! So, of course, I LOVE IT!

And then a delightfully Snape, Spiders. and Gryffindor Package from teag. I actually pinned this spider ornament to my harry Potter Board. I'm excited that I received it! And the wand is a chibi version of Snape's wand as well! Love it!

Thank you for a terrific swap. Now to go and hang these beauties somewhere  Grin
