1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Writing Magic - NaNoWriMo 2013 (SO Oct3) on: October 14, 2013 02:00:14 AM
My awesome hooplas arrived from Smeddley!



(The one on the right is from my Pinterest and always makes me smirk - it's a bad habit maybe, but it is definitely something I do.)

And the beautiful illustration is inspired by a quote I'm sure you all know - Poe's raven's croaked catchphrase. Some stories (and poems) are certainly classics for a reason.

Thank you Smeddley, it was awesome swapping with you Cheesy

(I have no idea why this picture is so dull - I took this photo in broad daylight, and it looked great at the time... go figure)

Thank you queenofmarigold, you're an great partner, and I hope your package gets there soon... and in one piece...  O.o

They usually take about two weeks to arrive, and I've never had anything rock up busted so I wouldn't worry any time soon. I'm looking forward to it and getting ready to start stalking the post office box in anticipation Smiley

I'm glad you liked everything and that it suits you - and especially that the gloves are already coming in handy! I do recommend giving the patches a try, I found it really simple and quite fun. I imagine they could get quite addictive.

EclecticDreamer, the pattern is Autumn Mittens on ravelry - one of the only ones I've been able to bear making more than once, which is saying something! I'm a little amused that you like the colour though - it was my first attempt at dyeing and it was MEANT to be purple... but came out a splotchy green. I don't know how many mistakes it took to get it that way, but I suspect more than one  Grin

So many awesome things, ladies - the Tardis is a great idea, and I love the Stephen King quote.

I'm done too! I sent off today, and hopefully there won't be any holdups on the way - international postage takes long enough as it is.

This swap has definitely given me a headstart on my NaNo enthusiasm - I'm pretty excited to begin, too Smiley

Not only is the Claptrap bag very cool and well done, but the Pokedex makes my childhood happy Smiley

Plus that Mega Man pillow is adorable. So many awesome things being crafted!

Main item is nearly done! Just putting some final thought into my other piece, as well as my impending NaNo novel... so is everybody planning on writing this year, or still undecided? Got ideas yet or gonna totally wing it?

I finally received my awesome package from vincenvanbuck and let me tell you, it was worth the wait! Posting from USA to Aus normally takes about two weeks, but this was took almost four to get to me - and the envelope was pretty beat up, so I guess it took the scenic route. Luckily everything inside was in one piece.

Firstly I found this awesome painted and appliqued bag featuring the ever-iconic Companion Cube and covered with quotes from the delightfully snarky GLaDOS.



Then this dear little cross-stitched coin purse, featuring rupees (currency from the Legend of Zelda games) on one side and some Super Mario coins on the other - the stitching is so neat, I'm impressed!



And finally, a hoopla for my wall. I opened it up to find this -



 - a blue 'onion' from the Pikmin games, which is basically a home/spaceship for them. The daisy on top even spins like a propeller! But even better, when I lifted the onion aside, I found...



This awesome (and again, impressively neat!) cross stitching, of four little pikmin with the sampler-esque words "onion sweet onion". I think I'll have to find room for both pieces separately on my wall so I can admire both all the time.

So how's that for a first swap? I know I was impressed! Thank you so much, vincenvanbuck Smiley

Something I always like seeing in questionnaires and made sure I asked in previous swaps I organized: do you have a pinterest or wist or etsy favorites to share? I forgot to ask on this one. Remember that's always a great way to find out what your swap partner likes Smiley

I didn't even notice it wasn't in there! It's definitely a good question though, I always like looking through them.

And I'd be so excited for partner day if mine was actually in the swap... ha ha.

You know, about an hour ago I wondered if at this rate you'd receive before I did - and I was right! I'm glad everything arrived in one piece Smiley

What an awesome start to the gallery! And I have to agree, those stamps look amazing Smiley
