1  Re: Welcome To Night Vale Swap (SIGNUP 4/19/15-5/01/15 ; MAIL BY 5/22/15) in ACTIVE SWAPS WHERE SIGN-UP PERIOD HAS CLOSED by bethimusprime on: May 02, 2015 05:52:04 AM
Oh - I was wearing my night vale beanie to Free Comic Book Day, and Dean Rankine who does the Simpsons comics drew my head in a jar... with my beanie!

Nice!! but wait - today is free comic book day?! Guess who has to go pick up her comic books now.... (my shop is 2 hours away...)

Also - I honestly don't think I have a favorite quote. Unless maybe I can count just the simple "And now the weather" with the music notes

Sorry, I have been stuck in the vortex known as work for the past few days. I have only managed an escape due to an unplanned break in the schedule. I am unsure which of you fellow crafters I have to thank for this unexpected relief. Or perhaps it was the Sheriff's Secret Police that managed to sweep away all of my problems. Will we ever know?

I received from RubyTuesday today!

Isn't it adorable?! I love how the little cherries are made up of sequins. Totally cute and ingenius. I love it!

Plus, she sent this:

Isn't it cute? Complete surprise too! I love it!

Thank you so much RubyTuesday!! I had a great time swapping with you Smiley

Thanks so much Bethamusprime!!! I love everything!!!

You're very welcome!!

[edit]: Also, forgot to mention - Red Riding Hood is actually one of my favorite fairy tales too Smiley And Ghostbusters is one of my favorite cheesy 80s movies. Right along side Karate Kid, Bill & Ted's, and the Ninja Turtles.

Ssssooooo I actually received from gozer last week, it's just taken me AGES to have to time to post pictures. But trust me, it's all amazing.

First up -

I LOVE this! It's now officially my new work coffee mug Smiley Absolutely adorable! Incase you can't tell, she wrote "Today I'm reading..." and left a big blank space for me to fill in Smiley (Yes, that's "Fall of Reach" I'm reading)
Common Ground: We both love reading Smiley

Next -

Yeah, that's a Marvel comic book clutch!!! I'll have you know, I spent an ENTIRE weekend telling people that I SERIOUSLY needed to get a clutch for when we go out. Then this arrived THE VERY NEXT DAY!!! It made me love and appreciate it SO MUCH MORE! I think gozer is a mind reader though..
Common Ground: She actually already had this fabric! How absolutely awesome is that?!

The rest of the items she said just reminded her of me:

A GIRL SCOUT coin purse :O

I was a Girl Scout for 13 years Smiley This is totally becoming my new "candy pouch" for my purse!

And Extras!! -

The nerds lip balm completely cracked me up. I told her in my survey "I swear I like more than just nerdy stuff!" And the reference to my obsession of Batman and the obvious play on my username with Transformers Smiley

Close up on the Batman snack pack because I think it's way, way too adorable.

There was also chocolate in the snack pack, but uh, that didn't survive long enough to make it to the photo shoot Tongue

THANK YOU SO MUCH GOZER!!! I loved it all!!

I actually received my package from leather and lace yesterday, but I'm just now getting a chance to sit down and take pics (and act like a normal person, because I'm pretty sure I was laughing like a villain when I first opened the package.)

Here is everything (Can you see why I started laughing like a madman?!):

She painted something for me. PAINTED PEOPLE. Superman and Wonder Woman together like the "American Gothic" for my living room.

And she made a keychain with ALL THE ROBINS. (Nightwing, Red Hood, Red Robin, Stephanie... (still sad that she's not around now!)), and Robin Smiley) Multiple pics because it was hard to get all of them in one and because THEY'RE JUST THAT CUTE:

Steph, Damian, Tim

Jason, Steph, Damian

Tim, Jason, Dick

This is the one that made my husband tell me I'm being ridiculous because I WOULD NOT PUT IT DOWN:

And it OPENS:

Thank you so so so so so much!! I'm absolutely in love with all of it Smiley

Bunnie Boo just received, but is having some problems uploading pics, so I said I would do that part for her Smiley

This is sadly the swap I took the least amount of pictures for, so you might have to use your imagination for two parts of it  Cheesy

I made a reversable bag, one side was teal and the other side is orange (Bunnie's favorite color combo), and I stitched on a triforce in white on both sides. <Insert Imagination Here>

Total side note about that bag - I broke TWO sewing machines trying to make it (tension on one and  parts were literally falling off the other machine). Which is exactly why I usually say "I can't sew on a machine" when I fill out craft swaps questionnaires. Something ALWAYS seems to go wrong!

I also cross-stitched this on a plain white apron for Bunnie

I found this cute little chest box thinge at a craft store, and it reminded me of the zelda chests, so I had to fill it with something.

So I made heart shaped candy for it Smiley

I didn't get a pic of this part, but I also printed this image on a magnetic sheet and cut out each image for make several magnets for Bunnie. <Insert Imagination Here>

Sorry it took so long for me to post pics! I was trying to find a camera that works, but I kept having problems. So I decided to just take pics with my phone and hope for the best. Sorry if any of these don't turn out well!!

Here's a pic of everything!:

I think she spoiled me a little too much.

There is actually a reversible bag, a box with images, 4 bottlecap magnets, a pin cushion, Scotty's classic "Hello Computer" coffee mug cozy, and a "red shirt" towel.

Here are a few of the more detailed shots I took:

No lies, I spent a whole day just giggling over everything. This has definitely been a fun swap!! Thank you ssssooo much!!

Everyone has already received such cute items!!

Well, I actually received my package from striker923 earlier this week, but I'm just now getting the chance to actually sit down at a computer and post.

I should preface this by mentioning that I told striker923 that I was interested in adding more Zelda stuff to my bathroom and kitchen.


AAAHHHH I love it to death Smiley I MIGHT have put it on IMMEDIATELY and refused to take it off until it was time to go to bed Cheesy

Oh, and then there were the Deku Shower Curtain Hooks

She actually made six of these. SIX. I couldn't even make ONE if I tried really, really hard. They're absolutely ADORABLE.

I just thought it would be funny to put them in this basket for a few pics at first Cheesy

Thank you SO, SO MUCH striker923!! I love all of it so very much!

omg you guys. YOU GUYS.

Yeah, I grabbed my camera and ran outside to take pics before I even opened my package.

As if I didn't have enough suspense!!

I didn't even get a pic of the cool folding job because I was too excited:

I think she got the memo on my Batman obsession XD

Do you guys see this?!:

Yeah, that's a hand painted Final Fantasy handbag. It's kinda a big deal. 

Oh, right. Then there was this:

So if I wear this, does it mean I can act all Assassin like??
Someone should invent a way for you to feel this through your computer monitor because OMG IT'S SO SOFT.

Rupee. Coin purse. Get it? Eh? Eeeeeehhhhh??:

I'm sure you can't tell in the photo, but the purse itself has a 3D pop to the front of it. AND it all looks to be hand-sewed. (OMG CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?!)

As if I wasn't already spoiled, she stuffed it full of awesomeness:

Pokemon and my own (glow-in-the-dark?) bat. Love it!

Thank you so, so much cutemonster!! I love it all!! You've completely spoiled me.  I can't wait to start showing these off to everyone Smiley

I got my package in this morning from BlueNeta! Not going to lie, I did one of those little girly "squee!" sounds when I opened the package.

First thing I noticed was this amazing Robin Bag!! Which is perfect since I was recently thinking that I needed a Batman themed bag anyway Smiley

Which is amazing all by itself, except that it also came with a matching Robin coin purse.

And as if that weren't enough, I have a Nightwing Stamp! Which I quickly decided will become my new stamp at work.

It honestly wasn't until I was showing the bag to someone else that I even noticed that it was reversible. Which again, made me "squee" like a little kid (and made them laugh at me). Because, you know, Nightwing. XD

Thank you so much BlueNeta! Sorry some of the pictures are blurry, but you definitely made my day Smiley
