1  Re: Newbies Only Swap Round 9 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by kreestar on: May 29, 2008 11:40:58 AM
i'm a very excited little monkey Grin ... my parcel arrived today full of wonderful loot!  thank you kidwithkemikals.  i'm so chuffed  Kiss

[forgive me if i misappropriate the uses of some of the goodies, so please correct me i'm off base on some of these  Wink]

the box arrives...:
and my little one starts singing "happy birthday" (so that's for you, kwk Wink) and tries to thwart my attempts to open it.



things are bigger in america!:
then, i'm stunned by the size of the bubbles in the bubble-wrap.  as a self-confessed serial bubble-wrap popper, this is awesome!  my weapon of choice.  the good news is that my kiddo takes the bubbles to the bath with her so i can carry on opening my stash without sticky fingers in the way.



card & envelope:
kidwithkemikals made the cutest little handmade card & envelope to go with the gifties.  with a lovely bird cut-out and a strawberry stamp Smiley



cute subversive bookmarks:



black terracotta twins
then there's these guys.  if i'm right, they're chalkboard-painted pots so that i can write my herb names on them in chalk and not worry too much if the plant dies because i can re-purpose them for a plant-successor Smiley ... and this just in time because my lemon thyme and basil are looking for new homes.  yahoo, thanks!



natural fibre jewellery
spot on on this one!  i'm not a tremendous fan of flashy jewellery, so the natural stuff is ideal.  i'm not sure if you can see the detail on this, but it's got very pretty coloured beads and seashells woven in.  there's another little thingymajig with my name in beads which will find a home either on my keyring or my cellphone, both of which go missing far too often than is natural. sorry that this photo does not do it justice - i can't get close enough!



felt button-up pouch


this is in beautiful chocolate brown and blue with a cute little button.  very neat!  and a little friend of mine has already made himself at home:



arrrrr... pirate notions!



wonder what's inside...



funky little jolly roger magnet drops and seashells in resin.  by the time i got to this my kid was done in the bath and wanted to play with them.  MIIIIINE!  MIIIIIIINE!  we'll continue the battle tomorrow...  Cheesy



then, my personal favourite, right off my wist  Smiley

bird silhouettes
i don't even want to think of how many nicks kidwithkemikals got cutting this out, but they're amazing:  one black & one white.  i love them!  (or to quote my little one: "i yuv dem").  again, i'm not sure the detail is coming through on the photograph, but it's awesome work (and must've taken an AGE!)



thank you so very much, kidwithkemikals.  it's been so cool meeting you and getting this lovely stuff.  i hope that mine to you arrives by the weekend!

thanks again!

2  Re: Waldorf inspired washcloth gnome baby ***NOW WITH TUTORIAL!!!*** in Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies by kreestar on: April 24, 2008 12:47:07 PM
one boy, one girl and one surprise  Smiley

finally managed to get these done just in time to deliver to the 3 ladies at work before they went off on maternity leave (2 of their babies came on the same day  Shocked)



i don't wear make-up so had to buy blush especially for my little guys  Grin ... kept on being silly and cut the head on the textured/decorative border of the cloth.  then managed to get half the head right on the second one and the back-end wrong.  3rd time was a charm... and once assembled, you can hardly notice it.



just a note to go easy on the blusher.  one of my gnomes had to be washed and strung out to dry because he ended up looking like a brazen hussy Smiley
