21  Re: Box of Sunshine Gallery (SO Feb 17) in The Swap Gallery by Mountains and Clouds on: February 21, 2014 10:18:28 PM
!!!!!!!!!!!! I just got home from a very long week with my silly middle schoolers to find a box full of fantastic yellowness from gamemom42!!!!!

So many wonderful little bright pieces-- I feel so spoiled!




When gamemom had asked me about specifics, one of the things I had mentioned was that I'm always envious of all you people who have Michael's around, especially for the dollar (now 1.50 I guess : ) bins.... So there are some Michael's goodies tucked in!  I also love the silly putty, a mini sewing kit, the cutest cupcake skins!, washi tape (which have cool monochromatic woven and tree patterns on them, but are pretty impossible to photograph), glittery pencils and a pencil case. (Which I've actually been needing-- so yay!)




Crafty amazingness!! I sweet felt sunshine broach , a coaster, a sparkly starfish hoop, and an awesome bag with the most beautiful print! I love it!  Since I teach and I'm a musician, I always need bags to carry everything around, and this is perfect!  (And the right size too, not to mention the straps are actually the perfect length as well!)  LOVE!





And also, she sent the most adorable little honey pot I've ever seen!  (I'm super excited about this! We're probably moving soon and I'll actually have enough space for wonderful things such as honey pots and hooplas!)





Thank you so much, gamemom42!!! What a fun swap! Happy weekend, everyone!

ETA: So sorry, I just realized how un-great the photos are... I will try to get some better shots tomorrow when the sun is out!

Eeeep!  Sorry I am so late in posting some of these.  My computer just now let me know that I haven't been on it in 35 days! 

First, I got this wonderful card from Helcura for my "I dream of jellyfish" theme.
Here is what she writes: "'Porpita porpita' Blue Button Jelly.  Often confused with jellyfish, these are actually hydrozoans.  They are a colony of hydrozoan polyps."  (I love it!  Here I go, off to read more marine biology!)\







Next up, for my "Hawai'ian" theme, from RockingBearRanch, this wonderful drawing of Queen Lili'uokalani.
('Mo'olelo' is a word used to describe Hawai'ian folklore and/or history. 'olelo means "story.")






And, just today, I received this wonderful card from heini for my "location" theme. Heini is from Lahti, Hame (in Finland).  The fabric on this card is from Hame national costume.  In Lahti, old radio masts are a well-known landmark, and there are 2 of them about a 5 minute walk from home.  Cool! I love this!




I love them all!  Thank you everyone!

What fun shots of Anuenue!! Please don't flake, haha!  She's definitely been traveling for way more of her life than she's been here.  I think she's definitely going to take a relaxing break after this trip!

Gramayre got to follow me to work with some kids at a band camp last weekend.  We had a great view from our master class spot!


I will definitely miss Gramayre's companionship too!

Gotta start the process of weeding out pictures so I don't end up printing like two thousand of them....

I have lately been inspired by all the great shrines here on Craftster, and have decided to try a little bit on my own.

I made this little shadowbox to send to my wonderful penpal who I have neglected because I've been crazy busy. (And who I met here on Craftster in a PenPal swap!)  I wanted to send a little more than a howdy, but not so much that the international postage would kill me : )





I painted a little paper mache box lid, drew the ringmaster and elephant and then decorated the outside with little rhinestones and buttons.





It's simple, but I like how it turned out : )

Organizer's Note:
Everyone, look at your calendars! We're below 3 weeks to send-outs! (Tricky February....)
If you haven't started your photo books yet, now is a good time!

Please remember to PM your organizer and partner when you send, and let them know if it's looking like you might have to send late.



Sorry I haven't posted many pictures lately. I've hardly had a day off since New Years, but we did have a chance to go play some gamelan on the beach last week!

Sorry these are late in being posted...

I received two beautiful cards from La Chapa...

for my "Sunsets and Silhouettes" theme, this awesome bat at dusk!


And this awesome "moon on a string:"



The moon is attached by the tiniest gold thread.

Thank you, La Chapa! I love them!

Oh my gosh! I haven't brought Gramayre to the zoo yet! 

Here's a (kind of boring) picture of the tree that is now hanging onto our lanai, thanks to our neighbors chopping down an entire line and letting it lean on this other one for a few days, so now it seems permanently bent. Awesome.

I just found an SD card with old pictures on it, and I found this picture I took snorkeling off Kauai several years ago.... the saturation is turned up (and it's kind of a junk picture), but I think these are my favorite fish, and I thought I'd share some bright colors!

I'M EXCITED ABOUT THIS SWAP!

Teehee! I'm glad Wuddy was able to sneak in!

Last week, we were finally able to explore the city hall holiday decorations right before they took them down!

Hey all!  Here's a little warm inspiration... Sorry it's not the proper warm colors, but here are some bushy palm trees right by where I'm waiting for husby to get back to work headquarters. (Sorry the sun is going down too)
