Awesome happy mail so far!  I love the variety of crafty doodads I'm seeing!

LimeRiot created the cutest bunch of crafty doodads for me Smiley  One of my themes for this swap was science, and boy did she deliver!

The envelope is a watercolor piece inspired by a microscopic picture of a plant cell.  I'm sad that I had to blur out the address bit for the gallery because her calligraphy is beautiful Sad



And inside, I found:

scientific quotes and sayings done beautifully in modern calligraphy...



a gravity testing kit that made me grin...so clever!



an assortment of petri dishes with bacteria colonies growing Grin



a sweet mini garland with science icons...



and finally, a collection of periodic elements (specifically chosen so that I can spell words with them)!




LimeRiot, I adore everything you crafted for me.  Your talent in illustration and watercolors is amazing.  Thanks so much for swapping with me!  Kiss

Finally finished working on my personal prayer flag!  I had more fun crafting for my swap partner than I did for myself Roll Eyes

I received a beautiful prayer flag from the amazingly talented fatewineroses today! 
Her embroidery skill is impeccable.  I adore the chalkboard drawing style she chose for the front of my prayer flag. 



Yep, that was just the front...because she also embroidered a quote on the back of my two-sided prayer flag Shocked
The quote she chose is a perfect representation of the theme she selected from me. 



fatewineroses, thanks so much for making my first prayer flag swap a memorable one! Kiss

8  Spam Musubi (non-edible) in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by loves2experiment on: April 01, 2016 02:03:42 AM




While on vacation in Oahu last month, we noticed that spam musubi was available...everywhere.   
It consists of a slice of cooked spam on top a block of rice, bundled together with toasted seaweed.  Yummy!   
The above spam musubi is not meant for consumption.  It's actually a prototype of something I am planning to make for my friends...as a memento of our crazy holidays Wink
After some thought, I came up with spam musubi hot & cold therapy packs Grin  Quirky and functional.  And most importantly, easy to construct.  After the pattern pieces were created, I decided on anti-pill fleece fabric for the spam and rice component coverings.  The nori wrap is made with some black silky fabric I had in my stash.       





Deconstructed, we have the rice block (with flax seed pack insert), slice of spam (with cold pack insert), and toasted nori (with Velcro fasteners to hold everything together). 





Close-up of 'rice' cover and flax seed pack:

And if you've never tried this flavor of spam, you should.  Just for bragging rights! Wink
