1  Harry Potter Favorites Swap in The Swap Gallery by AmazingAlex on: August 25, 2014 09:48:02 AM
Super cute! The Snape card is hilarious and that heart shirt is awesome. I'll post pics of my earrings later tonight. One pair is still in the car where I took them off after a night on the town so I could show them off.

In other news, here is my package from najaorama. Her partner left the swap so I agreed to partner with her as well (now if only I could kick my butt into gear and finish everything up.)

First up, this mysterious box.


Inside,

A pair or Luna Lovegood radish earrings!! I'm so lucky to have not one pair, but two pairs of radish earrings and I love them both!!

Next we have,

Three awesome glass potion bottles so I can always keep some liquid luck, gillyweed, and a love potion on hand!! So cute!

Last up we have something so awesome I squeed a little!

My own tea reading teacup! Lets see what my future holds.....

*gasp* oh no! The Grim!!

Before I die of fright, I just wanted to thank my partners for such awesome packages and for being so incredibly patient with me and all the participants for being so cool! Thank you so much najaorama for the amazing package! i love it!!! I think we're waiting for a few more people to receive.

I just received a package!
It must have taken a hippogriff to carry this! It's huge! Lets check inside!


I'll follow instructions!


Fav item is first!


Buttons! And earrings! And keychains! Of the Marauders and the Marauders Maps! Oh my goodness!!!!!


A marauders map keychain, pin, and earrings! A marauders keychain and pin. And pins of all the marauders!! These are so awesome! I'm in awe and I can't wait to put these on my bag! These alone would have satisfied me for this swap!

Item number 2 is fav house.


A Hogwarts chest!
With so much Hufflepuff swag!!

I've got a Hufflepuff crest patch, a Hufflepuff tie patch (How did you make these? They're so amazing!!!), black and gold earrings, AND 4 Hufflepuff pins! Again, this would have surpassed my wildest dreams. But did my partner stop there? No she didn't.


#3 is Fav character!

O.M.G!! It's a Snuffles pillow!!! He's so amazing! He's even got a little Snuffles collar and he's so soft and so AMAZING!!! And comes with more pins of my favorite character Sirius Black!! This is so perfect!


As if all this wasn't enough, I also have extras!


More buttons and a PERFECT Weasley is our King shirt! Oh my goodness!


Look at all my amazing buttons, keychains, earrings and magnet!
Just to list them all I have: a Marauders keychain, a large Marauders pin, a Marauders Maps keychain, a large Marauders Map pin, small pins featuring each Marauder's animagus footprint, Marauder's Map earrings, Hufflepuff "Haters Gonna Hate" large pin, 2 small Hufflepuff pins featuring different versions of the house crests, a drawn badger small pin, Hufflepuff scarf earrings, a large Sirius Black movie still pin, a small Snuffles movie still pin, a large Hogwarts crest pin, a large Weasley is Our King pin, a large "Keep Calm and Ship Wolfstar" pin, a "Keep Calm and Ship Wolfstar" magnet, and Luna's radish earrings.
That is a lot of awesome, amazing, stupendous buttons!!


Me in my shirt (can you tell how happy I am?)


Here's a final group shot of everything (minus the shirt I'm never taking off).

Thank you so so so so so so much GrindHouse! Everything is beyond my wildest dreams! You definitely exceeded swap minimums and I don't think anything I could send would match your generosity!

Look what I got today!!



My package arrived! I had a funny feeling it would!


My beach letter explained what all I would find inside.


First let me introduce you to my new friends.

Meet Baby. She is a pink jellyfish with awesome tentacles and she was born 7/6/14.


This is Bucky. He's a shark with fearsome teeth and he was born 7/4/14!


Let me introduce you to Squiddley. He's an amazing shade of purple and his birthday is 7/5/14.


My new best friend is Inky! He's a navy blue octopus born 7/2/14! Look at his tentacles! And his eyes! Eeee!


Now my package was a pirates treasure chest with the sea creatures around it. Are you ready to be blown away by my treasure chest?


It's amazing painted like the bottom of the sea with awesome stickers on it and IT IS SO AWESOME!!
Part of the lock broke off in transit (even though it was packed amazingly well) but that should be an easy glue fix!

I even got a skeleton key for my box!


Are you ready for the inside of my treasure chest? I wasn't! So much awesome!


Look at all that pirate loot!!

Broken up I have a dolphin key chain, a shark tooth, a strawberry ring pop (yum), a collection of beautiful sea shells, some purple, green, and gold doubloons, and some temporary tattoos (so cute!)

I also got this amazing thrifted beaded coin purse.

Why would anyone give that up! I love it!

There was also a mysterious pirate coin in the bottom of the chest.

Where is it from? So awesome! So mysterious!

I ALSO (I'm so incredibly spoiled!!) got a little glass fish pendent inspired by my late fish Jorge (he was a red Beta fish). I can't believe you remember me telling you that Barb!

He looks like he's swimming in a bowl!

The bottom of my chest is even decorated!


As if all that wasn't enough, I got some extras as well!


Some extra fabric (Barb offered to send it after learning I had to leave most of my stash back home in SC but I had no idea she would spoil me so much!!), some sea creatures crackers and an adorable sea turtle lollipop.


Everything together. I'm one lucky pirate!! Thank you so so so so much Barb! I cannot tell you how much I love everything! It's so awesome!! ^_^

4  Make me a purse and wallet swap gallery in The Swap Gallery by AmazingAlex on: August 15, 2014 10:48:34 AM
I received! I'll be posting pics while opening my package so y'all can be surprised with me!


Why is that a package for me? It is!


With such pretty packaging inside!


We should read the card first.


What could this be? Lets see!

It's a super cute white drawstring pouch! I love it! Wait, could something be inside it??


Look! A para cord bracelet instruction kit! This is so awesome since I've been wanting to make my own para cord bracelet!!!


Another package inside? What could this be?

A brand new wallet! I love that button but it actually hides a magnetic clasp for easier opening. Lets open it and see the inside!


Look at the pockets inside! We have two long pockets for my checkbook and pictures on either side (what I wanted) and 6 pockets for my ID, debit card, etc. Score!


And the other side! I've got a long zipper which I love to store my change. (Do y'all see the awesome lock and key pull charm on that zipper??) and a long pocket at the top of the wallet which I love because I plan on using It to hold my phone, etc when I just plan on taking my wallet and not a whole bag.


Here's the inside of the large pocket. I love how roomy it is! Wait, is there something inside it already?


There is! An amazing amazing amazing TM patch! I mentioned to Sharalee how much I love them and she agreed to make me one as an extra! It says "I love cats" and I love it! I love the rhinestones in the flower center as as the cutest cat's collar!


Here's my last package! This must be my bag!!


Look at my amazing new backpack! The fabric is so fun! I love the swirls! My bag features one pocket on the front and closes with a magnetic clasp and a drawstring!


Look at how much room I have to carry everything!! It's so roomy! Did you see the zipper inside! It's also got an adorable zipper pull charm! And the zipper has the same line fabric as the wallet!


The back features a handy top handle and two adjustable straps for easy toting!


Look at everything! My partner is awesome and I love everything so much!


Everything packed up and ready to go. Can you tell how excited I am??

Thank you so much Sharalee! I love everything and I will definitely wear it with pride! Sorry everyone for the photo dump but thank you for opening my package with me!

Sorry I've been a little MIA guys! I've been dealing with some personal junk. I know my wonderful partner posted pics of what I got but I wanted to post my own pics to show it all off!


Here is everything- an awesome card and bookmark, and a AWESOME pillow, tote bag, and washcloth!!


I'm so impressed you found a Lughnasadh card and the bookmark is so cool
!

I really love the Goddess symbols so I got an amazing pillow, tote, and washcloth!


This image is iron transferred? Stamped? I don't know but it's awesome! I love the colors!


Look at this awesome pillow! The batik fabrics are awesome and I love the shimmery purple embroidery floss you used! The Goddess symbol is amazing and - if I'm not mistaken- straight off my Pinterest!


This made me gasp out loud! It's a triple moon washcloth! Can you see the moons? As soon as I took this out I ran to my boyfriend with a "LOOK WHAT I GOT!" It is so awesome! I don't think I'm ever going to wash something with it though! It's too priceless!

This package was SOOO amazing! Thank you so much! I love everything!

6  Xwing T-Shirt in Stenciling: Completed Projects by AmazingAlex on: July 06, 2014 10:51:54 AM
My boyfriend plays Xwing, a Star Wars miniature game. I made this shirt for him to wear when we go to tournaments and casual games with friends.

Front of the shirt on the upper right hand corner:

He plays for the rebel faction (I'm a die hard imperial player but he hasn't come to the dark side yet) and wanted the rebel symbol on the front.

Back of the shirt:

One of of the xwing ships is called the Hwk 290 and my boyfriend is known as the only one at the group who really knows how to fly the ship so I made him the "Hawk Master".


This is a picture of the actual HWK 290 model. I flipped this image and cut out the outline for the shirt.

The paint is actually a bright red in person. As you can see, the paint spread a little when I pulled the stencil up so I think next time I'll wait until the paint is completely dry before messing with the stencil. Also, I did the stencil in three separate pieces so the back kind of ended up in a kind of oval. But overall, I enjoyed my first experience with stenciling and my boyfriend likes his nerdy shirt. I'd love to hear everyone's opinion and/or suggestions!

Its time for me to upload my pictures of the awesome package I received from MadHatteh! I don't have a picture of the package unopened because well, I was so excited to get it I tore right into it. Smiley So on to my shoes! Prepare to be jealous fellow HP nerds. Cheesy
  the tops of them- the writing on one says "He turned back to Snape his eyes full of tears. After all the time? The other shoe with the beautiful deer says "Always said Snape."

side view it reads "For him," shouted Snape Expecto Pretronum! From the tip of his wand burst  the silver doe.

other side  "You've been raising him all this time, like a pig for slaughter-" and "But this is touching Severus, said Dumbledore. "Have you grown to care for the boy after all?"
the backs
  my extras! I got a bracelet, a precious octupus keychain, a mermaid silly band, some funnies printed on photo paper, a HP 5 print studio I've been playing with, some Pokemon cards! and some my little pet shop stickers

Details of swap:
Ok so this is the pen pal round 3 swap! Who doesnt love receiving non-junk mail letters?? I know I love it and I never receive any mail at all. So lets swap for letters! Im basing most of this on the previous round here http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=379233.0. But basically youre going to fill out the beautiful questionnaire and Ill match you up with another beautiful amazing person and youre both going to write letters to each other! One person will write the first letter introducing herself, and I this I stole from the previous round, include at least three questions in your letter that you will answer. You have two weeks to write and send it out so you can make it thoughtful. Two and a half weeks after the first partners send out date the second partner is going to write a letter back answering the questions from the first partner and including their own that they will answer as well. A month and a week after the send out date for the last partner will be the send out date for the craft! Havent I mentioned the craft yet?  This is going to be a. 3 point swap! The letter counts as some of your points. If you write a 17 , very thoughtful letter then go ahead and count it as 2 of your points because you obviously spent more than two hours on it. Even if you do write 23 pages of letter you still need to craft at least a small item for your partner. (unless your partner says go ahead! You probably shouldnt write 17 or 23 pages to them. Thats probably the same as your life story which your glorious partner may not want to hear.  no offense. You can also go over in points if you and your partner both agree but make sure you both agree. We dont want any extraordinary awkwardness.  

By Time
Large = 3 or more hours
Medium = 2 or more hours
Small = 2 or less hours

By Size
Large = A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
Medium = one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
Small = Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

By Price
