I thought I took photos of both sides of the mug, but I only found one side on my camera. Here are the "before the post office touched it" photos.

My swap partner just posted the pics (I forgot to take any myself).. a self-designed purse/bag with ideas taken from 6 different online purse pictures, and some of my own ideas.



The organizer pockets inside the outside pocket:

My partner in a craft swap just received her item. I designed this purse from bits and pieces of 6 purses I liked something about online and a few of my own ideas.



next: the organizer pockets inside the outside pocket:

I made a morsbag for a swap:



and I designed and created a Gathering bag. The metal pieces holding the strap and making it adjustable were purchased, as were the brown ribbon for the straps. Otherwise: It's 100% recycled. The denim is from a pair of jeans from a 2nd hand store. The lining and back of the handles are from an old flannel sheet I've been using up for over 10 years. It's finally gone. The short handle, if looped over the carry strap, holds the bag closed. Or open you can use it for gathering.

Pretty much the only projects I've done this summer have been for craft swaps, and only because I was almost late (or already late)... I signed up then discovered Depression-induced Apathy wasn't done with me yet.

Here's a sampling:

1: Japanese Sumi-e painted Enso 2: Hand drawn and colored tree



3: Hoopla (my first!): Acrylic painted fabric with a shisha-embroidered CD moon 4: Hand-drawn Runes in a convenient pocket size format

Challenge/Battle/Alert: N/A
Team/Ninja: Of Ships & Men
Project Geekdom (if any): Sadly: None
Bonus Points: Discovery: It's a gathering bag I designed.
Project Name: Gathering Bag
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: This is almost completely recycled. The metal pieces used to attach the handle and make it adjustable were purchased, and the brown ribbon used in the handles was purchased. The floral inner fabric and back of the handles are from an old sheet I've been gradually using up in projects for at least 10 years (it's gone now), and the denim is from a pair of jeans from the 2nd hand store. I almost didn't send it to my partner I love it so much. The pocket of course can be used as a pocket, and the inner part can be used for "gathering" herbs, roots, whatever. The small handle fits over the longer strap and will keep the bag closed so your stuff doesn't fall out. When actively gathering: unloop it and fill the bag. And of course the strap is adjustable so you can carry it over one shoulder or across body (my favorite option).

Challenge/Battle/Alert: August: Randomizer: Alternate Reality (Geekdom: Japan)
Team/Ninja: Of Ships and Men
Project Geekdom (if any): Japan
Bonus Points: Discovery (my first Sumi-e painting); Nerdy (See Geekdom: Japan)
Project Name: Enso
Project Page Link (if available): http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=424545.msg5071558#msg5071558
Brief Description: It took about 20 practice attempts to get this one which I liked. My friend that does Sumi-e painting said it sometimes takes her 100 practice pieces to get the 1 good piece. This was done for the Book of Shadows swap as the "cover" section of my "Circles" section (Life as a circle dance, things go around and around, Dance, etc)
Project Picture:

(The enso is on the left. the "Air Magic" is also a hand drawing)


Challenge/Battle/Alert: August: Nerdy - Super Nerdy - "Spaceships" Of ships & men
Team/Ninja: Of Ships & Men
Project Geekdom (if any): Of Ships & Men
Bonus Points: Oops... I think "Super Nerdy" actually falls into this category.
Project Name: Hoopla
Project Page Link (if available): same link as above
Brief Description: Sitting on planet Earth, gazing up at the stars and moon, the universe floating by... waiting for the ship to appear and carry me away. "Beam me up, Scotty!" (It's also the very first hoopla I've ever done. Acrylic painting on fabric and the moon is Shisha-embroidered CD)
Project Picture:



There are also hand-made runes surrounding it. Would figure out a way to add those too but no time.
