Bah! I waffled too long and missed the deadline--I can't wait to check out the gallery and see what you all come up with!

I'm planning on signing up for this; I need to set aside time to work on my questionnaire.

And even more goodness, cookie cutters! She bought the key, then taught herself how to do this, and made the rest! I see a lovely steampunk tea party in my future. And I'll be tracing around them for crafty projects, too.

I'm planning a steampunk tea party for early this summer, and I am definitely making myself a set of those--my favorite is the dirigible!

I received an AWESOME package from bookstorebabe yesterday.

It came in a big box and was very carefully wrapped...

The whole lot together:

(Please excuse the surrounding mess!)

A very pretty piece to hang on my wall:

Going along with the naturalist tendencies of the Victorians, which I love.  She made a reusable planner cover and a little box.  I don't think the picture does it justice, but the box is this gorgeous purpley-gold color.  Just the right size to hold some of my jewelry!

Next, bookstorebabe took a spice rack, painted parts of it copper and green and modified the bottles, filling them with sewing notions and office supplies, which I think is a really clever way of storing things! 

A close-up of some of the bottles...

And finally, the pièce de résistance: An emergency gun to ward off airship pirates!

Thanks so much, bookstorebabe!  I love it all, now I only hope you like your package, too!

I've never made it myself, but a local store around me makes herb butters and then, I assume, pipes them into little disks that are frozen and sold in a little tub, so one can take out a tablespoon at a time as needed.

I love the show and the time period.  Depending on the size and time frame of the swap, I'd be interested!

Finished everything! Now I've just got to take pictures, wrap it and send it; then the long wait until bookstorebabe receives!

Sounds awesome! I'm pretty good at following tutorials and riffing on them!

Depending on how big and if I think I can figure out how to make something, I'd totally be in for this!  I've got a steampunk tea party coming up in the spring, and I have zero costume elements figured out.

Okay, I just looked at the gallery for the previous swap, and I'm so impressed!  This seems like it would be a great swap!
