431  Flower and Feather Headband and clips in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by jillybeans on: August 03, 2011 09:07:52 PM
First off, a very special THANK YOU to barbolot for the tutorial on how to make these flowers.  I've been goo-goo-eyed for these flowers when I saw them on etsy.  I even bought some for all my bridesmaids and myself for my wedding.  And now with that tute, I can make my very own, and I did!  

Here is the tute:

And here is what I made for my swap partner for the Hair Accessories Swap.

I had my lovely little sister model them for me so I could get better shots of them.

JoAnn's sells lovely satin headbands in different colors.  I attached some vintagy looking lace first, and then the feathers (again, from JoAnn's) and then the flower.  And TADA!  Headband!  My sister loved it so much she almost didn't give it up.  I made her a promise to make her one in yellow and black.

Another flower and feathers, but this time applied to a metal chip.  I added a bow for a little more interest.

And more flower clips sans feathers all on metal chips.  

Here is the whole package together.

Thanks for looking!

I received some ATC's!  YAY YAY!

First, from Mrs.LindsayLoo for my viking theme.  Its called "If Wob (my friend) was a viking".

She loved it so much she even made it her profile.  I can't blame her, its brilliant! 

And from JillHogan for my cheese theme.  Its called "I <3 cheese" which I wholeheartedly agree.

Mmmm cheese!  She even got my favorite (and middle name) on there as well, BRIE!!!!  And you are correct, Jill, it does look quite realistic.  I'm longing for a cracker right now.  I love all the different fonts!

And finally, a personal swap w/ Gozer that was too cool to not share.  Its for my pickle theme (why I chose a pickle theme, I will never know, I just like the looks of them, but not the taste.  Bleck!)

Its SUPER PICKLE!  Da da da DA!!!!  He is a cool layered pickle, and raised off the card.  He has a look on his face that means business. 

Thanks for the wonderful cards, ladies!!!

Ooo that poisoned apple is brilliant! 

Here is one from pollyprissypants for my Zelda theme.  Its called "Go, Link, Go!"

She made it with leftover yarn bits.  Way to use extra stuff, polly!  Its quite relevant to my husband and me right now, we are currently playing The Ocarina of Time.  Hubby's never played it before.  Craziness.  Thanks Polly!

And from Kitza, she sent me two for my Final Fantasy theme!  Score!  I'm gathering quite a collection of these, its pretty awesome.  I might have to start a book for just FF.

Here is Squall Leonhart from FF VIII.

And here is Lulu from FFX complete w/ Moogle.  Wee!  Thanks for the beautiful cards kitiza!

I received from Mrs.LindsayLoo for my fireworks theme.  And she even sent me two!  They are both amazing.

Stitched fireworks on paper above a city.  So pretty!

A watercolor firework scence, beautifully done!  I love the watercolor ones.

Thank you for the wonderful two ATC's.  My husband loved them both, as well.  ^_^

I received some ATC's yesterday!  (Even one for the June 2011 swap, so its in that gallery if anyone wants to see it).

From Kartiana for my cupcake theme.  Its called "Yummy Cupcake". 

The card is a really pretty pearly pink.  Makes me hungry for a cupcake. Mmmm.

From Mountains and Clouds for my fireworks theme.  Its called "For Freedom".

The fireworks are stitched on a black fabric each w/ two color of floss.  It is so cool!

And she sent me an extra, an experimental card that turned out wonderful!

I think the leaves are fimo clay.  Such a fun tree!!!

437  Re: One Tiny Stuffie Round 6 Gallery O' Goodness in The Swap Gallery by jillybeans on: July 22, 2011 07:54:50 AM
I received yesterday!  It was such a lovely surprise to come home and find my package from Germany there, and it only took a week!  Boo-yeah!

I opened my package to find a whole bunch of wrapped packages!  (Excuse the poopy phone pictures, I coudln't wait until I was home to open it)

The biggest package "had 5" or so" on it, but it was so obviously bigger than 5".  I opened the package to find a monster of a purse and my stuffie hiding inside.  Wowzers!  How awesome is that?! 

Here are the details on the lovely purse:

And now THE STUFFIE!!!  He is the cutest monster, with big expressive eyebrows.  He's wonderful!

Here is the back and the details of his fun eyebrows.

He helped me out at work by answering the phones for me.  He's my new friend.  ^_^

We also did a personal swap and she sent me some chocolate from Germany as well.  Here is a little picture of it, and there are bigger pictures here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=369383.180

Thank you so much, BirdBones!  You were a wonderful partner and I absolutely love love LOVE everything you sent me! <3

Yesterday I got my swap package from BirdBones, and we did a personal swap as well as the One Tiny Stuffie Round 6.  I wanted to give it the attention it deserves, so I am posting it here.

First off, it is AWESOME!  For our personal swap she made me a monster book cover that I've been oogling.

Isn't it awesome!!!  I Friggin' love it!

And chocolate from Germany, to boot!  (Disregard the open package.  I broke into it last night.  Mmmmmmm)

Hehe that's an awesomely tacky card!  Great job!  What a fun theme!

I received a couple ATC's this weekend.

First from jmiller614 (our wonderful organizer) for my wine theme.

The camera washed it out a little, but it is super cute drawn card!  Right from the bucket to the glass!  Mmmm, wine.  In the process of trying to get pregnant, I'm really starting to miss wine.  My husband and I have started to really enjoy it, and he finds wine all so fascinating. 

And from zkatom for my Katamari Dymacy theme:

Na na na na na na na na na na na na na na!  Its freaking awesome!  The game is just as colorful in real life as well.  Great job on it this, its awesome!

Thanks for the wonderful cards, ladies!

Ok, pictures from my package I received yesterday from my swap partner, Doodisgurl89!  She apparently understood that I love wings.  ^_^

Here is the entire package, plus a couple extras!

A headband, four bobby pins, a ring, and a black chain!

Here is my super cute decorated headband.  It has black chain, a really cute heart w/ wings bead, and some more wings.

Bobby pins w/ danglie wings!  I wore the big one immediately after I got it for the rest of the day.  I <3 it!  Here I am at work wearing the poop out of it!  (Sorry for the icky phone picture)

Next up, a shiny tulle flower clip w/ little rhinestones.  Its so shiny and sparkly!  I can't figure out how she made these little flowers!  They are so cool!

And my ring, that matches the headband!  And an action shot!

Thanks for the wonderful package Doodisgurl89!
