541  Re: April Affair (IYP6) Gallery! in The Swap Gallery by rackycoo on: April 16, 2007 12:30:31 PM
I got my package from the always witty and clever bigmouth today! We did a smaller swap together, but look what she sent me:

An embroidered "crafty bitch" shirt to replace the butt-ugly one that my partner supposedly sent me in the April first mod "swap" Cheesy and some great circus fabric. I haven't decided yet what I will do with this. Something fun!

Also in the package were the following:

Two tiny boxes with thimble planters and eternally blooming pink flowers, a great little decorated tin, and some flower magnets made from hardware. So cute! Also, check out that box made of tape measures! I love it. It's going to sit on my desk and hold important items.  Smiley You really should be selling these somewhere.

Thanks so much, bigmouth. I always love seeing what your devious little mind will come up with, and as always, it was a pleasure swapping with you.  Kiss

Here's my Tuesday:


This card put up a bit of a fight, and I'm still not sure I won. The text says, "Love eluded her. It seemed to hover nearby like small tiny butterflies. No matter how still she sat, she could not entice one to land upon her.

I'm sending all my April cards to jan_on_ice, and I think I am feeling some pressure. I will be sending a bonus card, as this one is a bit questionable.  Cheesy

Yay! Sweets got my package, and I got hers!! Before I post, though, I wanted to say that I used to have a sweatshirt very similar to that one you sent vanillaxlight, Loth. I guess it's time to get it back out, huh? What a thoughtful package.

Sweets, I'm glad you like the macaroni purse. (Sorry some of the pieces fell off  Undecided) I just got a wild hair and thought you would like something a bit "different".  Cheesy I'm also glad you liked the "his" and "her$" pillowcases. I had those letters (but no "s") and thought that the dollar sign was sort of funny. What did your sweetie say?  Cheesy

Anyway, without further ado, here's what I got in my package!! Here's all of together: a reconned altoid tin (everyone knows I love those!), a book purse with a felted flower, a bracelet that will match just about every single thing I own, a little clutch, and a "Crafty Bitch" shirt, right off of my wists!


Here's a closeup of the tin and the shirt:


And the little clutch.


Best of all, I am the recipient of one of sweets' first atcs!


Thanks, sweets! I can tell you did some major post stalking.  Kiss

I got my "Q" from annette today! "Q" is for "quiet"!



Thanks, annette; it's a great card! I can tell that you used colored pencil...is it all hand drawn, or did you color over a photograph? I love the way it looks, and I'm a bit frustrated that I can't figure out your technique.  Cheesy

I got "P is for patchwork" today from crafty_dame. It's a beautiful little pieced quilt! Thanks, Ms. crafty! I love it.  Smiley

Here's a card I did for a personal swap. It was done using a copy of a photo and the contact paper transfer method (see the technique thread for details!), layered over some origami paper. The corner decorations are rubdowns.

Sorry this took so long to post, but here is the wonderful handpainted card minouette sent me. "R" is for red, raven, and rose.


Thanks, minouette! This is a great card. You are a talented painter.  Smiley

Get your wist buttons ready, because I got an amazing package from knitting_nyxxie today! Nyxxie was a knitting fool to get all this done, and then some! I had asked her for some knitted dishcloths, and here's what she sent:

4 really nice ones, plus an open weave shopping bag, straight off my wists! I know I'll be using this all the time.

Then, there's

a great skinny scarf, a tube of fun buttons, and a button bracelet and earring set in my favorite colors, again right off my wist!

And if that wasn't enough, she sent me a folder of ephemera (sorry, it got left out of the photos) and these four atc's:


Thanks so much, nyxxie! This was a great package! My only issue is going to be keeping some of this away from my girls. They must never know of the scarf and the bag. The dishcloths...well, they'll never try to get to those, so no worries there! Cheesy

My replacement card from bobolink came today, and it was so worth the wait! Check out the circus cats! I love the distressed look she did. Thanks, bobo. I'm sorry you had to send me two cards.
