1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Stuffie Swap 2 Gallery on: September 30, 2008 06:50:32 AM


This is the Naked Goblin I sent to RikaHeart.  His bio is this:  He was living in the basement of his parents cave playing video games for a few years, but finally his parents got sick of his slacker ways and threw him out.  So now he is naked and homeless.  And so I sent him to RikaHeart hoping to fix at least one of those problems.

If I had a dog that cute, I'd let him steal my stuffies.

Oh good I'm glad you like it -- I've always liked the whole homonym thing with Chaste and Chased.   So I go out with a success.  That's good!

This is about 1" buttonmakers.

They rock but are an investment up front which pays off over and over again later.

I bought mine on ebay with parts for 1000 buttons for just under $200 about 3 years ago.  This investment has paid off big time for me, as I use it at work a lot to make little commemorative buttons for different library events, for summer reading, banned books week, you name it.

Recently, besides making buttons for Ransom, (whoops a spoiler there!)  I made some Dr. Horrible Buttons.  I also made buttons of little Gaia chibi characters my friends make of their Larp characters. 

Getting supplies for more buttons is reasonably inexpensive --a set of supplies for 1000 buttons costs about $40.  That's 4 cents per button.

If you have a group of local friends who are as into making stuff as you are, you might invest in one all together and share it and the initial costs.

At long last, the tardy Gothmom posts pics.

Before I do, I just wanted to say that this is probably my last swap.  I've been doing this for years, dozens of swaps and some have been good and some have been real disappointments (not this one, don't worry Random you're great)  I've been flaked on  and I have angel'ed and I have even moderated a swap once.  But the pressure of the review you get at the end and the angst it causes makes the scales tip in favor of not doing it anymore.

Okay -so off the soapbox and on to the pics.

My camera must have had a hangover the day I took these pics...

First off - Ransom is a great swapper - she PAYS ATTENTION to what you say you like/dislike and really crafted just for me.  That was really super and great and rarer than you'd think. 

First off - all the pieces were individually wrapped and inside a really nice archive box.  It was more presents than I've gotten for my birthday for the last few years I'll tell you that much! 

photo of the wrapped schwag:


And then I ripped those beautiful things open...and this is what I found.

Ganesh - remover of obstacles on a pouch


Note the quality sewing on this pouch please...


Sovan Macha- the mermaid that Hanuman falls in love with on a small trinket box


Snow White and Rose Red on a handmade book


Baba Yaga on a handmade book


Scary monsters and werewolves! - el chupacabra too - bookmarks


I see Ransom has a 1" buttonmaker too! Smiley  note the sexy librarian button!


These were great items, well made, thoughtful, packaged like super great and Ransom was really kind and patient with me sending her stuff late.

Thanks again!

9  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Stuffie Swap 2 (Sign-ups: July 20 - August 9)(Send-outs: September 12) on: August 24, 2008 02:24:29 PM
Oi - what do I say?  There are 2 steps to creating a thing - there is the idea of the thing - of which the creation process takes  a LOooooong time, as I think and re-think and consider thigns in my mind.  Then there is the physical creation of the thing, which takes a much shorter time, but is the part that everyone is interested in.

Of those, part the first is nearly completed. 

Part the second will be done prior to the send-out date.

So ends my brief treatise on "how I'm doing in the swap"
