Sorry it's taken me forever to post these-- I got two fabulous packages from my two fabulous partners, chloeiscrazy and KittyKurl, and then got sick for basically this entire month. Don't take my slowness as a reflection on their gorgeous work!
First, from chloeiscrazy:
three adorable sewn headbands!
freezer paper, fabric paint, sponges and stamps to do my own t-shirts!
assorted ATC goodies!
more ATC goodies!
findings, doo-dads, hoo-has...
adorable felt beads...
and last, but certainly not least, the most awesome sushi fabric ever!
thanks so much, chloeiscrazy-- I can't wait to use all my great new stuff!
Hi everybody! Okay, so first of all I sincerely apologize for taking so long to post pics-- I was crazy busy and then I got sick. Without further ado:
The amazing ATC kit and vintage fabric I received from purrpower! She sent a ton of cool paper, pictures, and assorted doo-dads.
Thank you so much, I can't wait till I get a chance to play with everything!
Next up, the incredible shirts craftydeb made for my sweetie. She made two: a PlayStation themed one and a Yertle the Turtle one. I didn't get a pic of the Yertle one-- it is already in the laundry basket, it was such a huge hit. He loves this one too!
Last but certainly not least, Samsara sent me THREE beautiful necklaces! They are all so different, but so lovely.
A domino necklace:
A microscope slide necklace (sorry it's blurry-- shiny and hard to photograph!):
And an absolutely breathtaking necklace made of broken and melted CD pieces:
That last one cries out for a special occasion, don't you think?
Thanks SO MUCH, everybody. I love all the incredible packages I got, and I'm sorry it took me a few days to show 'em off publicly!
I received the best package from Rosali a few days ago! Sorry it took me a bit to post pics-- work has totally interfered with my crafting and craftster lifestyle the past few days!
Here they are, without further ado.
Two video-game related crafts, which have made the boy very very happy: an awesome Zelda pillow and a coordinating Super Mario tissue holder! She also reconned this little black and white photo album, which you can only sort of see in the picture. But it's adorable.
She made this amazing red messenger bag, which I have been proudly carrying with me everywhere ever since. It's the perfect size for all my stuff, and...
it has a fabulous white velvet (velveteen?) lining, complete with a red cellphone pocket that does double duty as a MetroCard holder.
She also sent LOADS of crisps, probably half of which have already been gobbled up! (I note with some embarrassment how you can totally see one of several overflowing bookshelves in the background here.)
Thanks so much, rosali-- I love everything. This was a really great swap!
I do, but no action shots, alas! Here's pictures of what I sent to rosali.
She asked for crocheted flowers and a knitted headband, so I did that:
The four-leaf clover and the gerbera daisy are my favorites. I also found a package of pin backs in my stash, so as she wanted to use the flowers as brooches, I threw those in.
A cotton yarn version of the argyle headband that another craftster designed. Because my gauge was different, I adjusted the pattern a little and wound up with more flattened-looking diamonds. I love the colors, though.
Little crocheted earrings that match the headband.
My couch, modeling the crocheted capelet I made. I knew she'd admired one liebschien made for someone a while back, so I used that as inspiration and fiddled with a poncho design I found online. Also made of a cotton (blend?) yarn. Rosali, I'd love to see an action shot of this one, even if it's blurry!
So glad you liked everything! I had a blast, and I still have plenty of materials left to do a Round 2 (and 3, and 4...).
