1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Little Visitor Swap Round 19- Gallery! on: July 06, 2014 10:50:15 PM
I didn't think if be able to post much, but right now the internet seems okay, and everyone else is sleeping... So I can post a picture!

Stella and I are in Ely, UK right now for a choir tour! We'll be the choir in residence at the giant cathedral this week.

Here are the quiet streets this morning.

So many wonderful pictures lately!  I haven't posted any new challenges because it looks  like you guys can mostly carry this on your own and keep the flow going!

Things haven't been too exciting lately... Mostly crazy busy (more in a second), but I did get some pictures at the cathedral where I sang a concert last week. The acoustics were fabulous!

[ack! I'll have to post a picture later... I've posted too recently with my phone...]

And now the reason for the crazy... In the past week I've been cleaning out my classroom, moving a bunch of stuff, planning for several new courses, new curricula (at least for only 2 of said courses), writing syllabi, and spending long days in training sessions/meetings as we get ready for the new school year (the last one just ended last week, but we're a year-round multi-track school, so the next one starts next week), and then I had to somehow come up with SUB PLANS for a non-musician sub because I'll be out for the first 7 days of school on a last minute opportunity to travel abroad!  So many things to do!

Anyway, more to come (hopefully) upon my return, but I will probably not have craftster access starting tomorrow until July 17, so please contact Wildfyre with any issues while I am gone.

Killam Creative's tin traveled at lightning speed (East coast to Hawai'i in two days!) and was waiting for me when I got home from work late last night.  I finally had a chance to open it this afternoon, and it's amazing!

Please pardon my hasty pictures. I can't get my computer out at the moment, but I want to post something so everyone can see, so I'll try to be fancy with my phone since the iphone has problems with posting more than one pic a day...

She went with one of my totally favorite themes: "moon on a string."

I love the clay moon and hand, and the wire "string" actually connects them through a drilled hole in the tin.  I absolutely love it!!

Thank you so much Killam Creative! (And I'll try to post more an better pictures if I have a chance tomorrow!)

Two wonderful pieces so far!  As I send mine out today, I feel a twinge of swap anxiety, but I still think I like what I made!

Hi everyone!
Sorry we've been a bit MIA (this mercury retrograde is wearing me out!).

Here's a recent shot of this morning... Not too exciting, papaya for breakfast from the backyard.

also, I will be messaging some people shortly (some haven't posted in more than 3 weeks!).  Please let me know if you are concerned about your partner.

Oh my goodness! I just barely, this minute realized there was a blog for Stella's trip! How fun! Cheesy

I just remembered to update it this morning, because I kind of just remembered too :-P

Sorry, we've been in and out lately and haven't posted much!

Stella got to join us for a fun dinner at the Top of Waikiki rotating restaurant last week!

I claim My_RubySlippers for a pinup girl!


Hi! I'm Sara in Honolulu, HI (USA).  As long as you enjoy making it, I'll enjoy receiving it; it's your art!  (However, please don't send any plant or animal matter, as we have big agricultural restrictions : )

Here are my themes:

-moon on a string


-zen gardens

- I dream of jellyfish

-Pierrot Lunaire (or Pulchinella, Petrouchka, etc.)

-"jumping jehosephats!"

-your political rant (go for it! I don't judge)

-your local coffee shop

-your location

-things that grow

-what goes on in your head

-Hawaiian legends /folklore

-sunsets and silhouettes

-your frat/sorority letters

-mermaids (original, not Disney, please)

-50/50 card-- cover half the card with a pre-existing picture or magazine clipping, and then draw the other half! (Doesn't have to be the actual other half..)

- a card with a cutout

- altered playing card (with the number/suit showing- just the top left is fine.)

-artist choice
