I haven't heard back from Emilyxorange, but I'll post pictures of what I sent her way, had fun making these things inspired by our shared love of geometry, color, and some things from her pinterest page.... =)

Some super groovy geometric foam shapes i hand sewed and strung on a garland! hard to get a great picture of them all..

Always wanted to make one of these beaded leather wrap around bracelets, now i have!

Knit cap that goes with the color theme, very cozy, slouchy, vibrant.

Books!
The common theme for EmilyXorange and I

She sent me a package with many book and reading themed items, including:
A small clutch purse made from a hardback(may have broken in the post)
Charm bracelet with little books made straight from my goodreads account (nice job!)
Three clever bookmarks
and some images from the book used to make the purse.
Bonus, she got me a book I haven't read by one of the authors I liked when I was young. Very sweet!
Thanks lady!

Today when I got home from work, I was delighted to find a box from P_E_S_T!
Behold! The wonders she sent to me are perfect, fabulous, and exactly my taste. I shall try to convey their glory in photographic form (but will not do them justice)
First, lovingly packaged in recycled orange wrapping, this is what I saw when I opened my box:


Then, I began to open the gifts..... These wire-wrapped pendants are sea glass and rusted stone, and I love them.


This piece of woman-power sacral-chakra artwork is already up on my altar.


This is a magical pocket attached to a hand-knit belt! (made with recycled sari silk, in the perfect green and amber hues)


The elephant orange background is a silky pillowcase, and she spoiled me with embroidery thread, yarn, and an orange bead assortment!


A felty hoop with beautiful stitching, already hanging on my bedroom wall:


I LOVE this scarf! It was made with shredded t-shirt fabrics, and the heart pendant is attached to it! Amazing!!!


She also added some flower seeds, honeycomb candles, a book (which I'm already anxious to read), a charm pendant, and sewing pattern.
This is the best and most beloved swap package I've received yet! I love it all!

Thank you thank you thank you P_E_S_T! <3 you are a wonderful swap partner

Thanks to the rainy weather in Washington I am making lots of headway on my ____ _____ for my partner. Tedious, creative, beautiful, and inspiring. But will it ever be finished? =)

Sarahelise and I received each other's hearts on the same day! So sorry the clay pieces broke in transit - although its surprising that it happened symmetrically.

I am in love with the package she sent me, here it is! (my pictures are sideways but i suppose it doesn't make a huge difference here)

first, the package itsself was wrapped with lots of love!


Each gift was wrapped in heart printed valentine bags, so adorable


And the crafts were amazing and clearly made with love, mostly inspired from my pinterest heart page (glad I whipped that together!)

the big heart is clay or plaster, I think, and has lacey motifs embedded into it. LOVE
The garland is crochet, and directly from a pinterest fancy
The knitted stuffed anatomic heart is my favorite. So soft and cozy and well stitched, and beautiful!!!


thankyouthankyou Sarahelise!
I'm very inspired by this swap and my swap partner. Looking forward to seeing everyone else's heart-shaped packages in this gallery. Happy V-days!

Four potholders in lovely natural colors, and three green tins for organizing, one was filled with re-usable tea bags!
Just made some herbal tea and the teabags work wonderfully. I really loved the simplicity of this package, and that puzzlr wrapped everything in fabric and used a cereal box for shipping!
Thanks so much!

8  Wild Animal Altered Notebook in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by crescentfresh on: April 16, 2009 02:42:43 PM
I haven't been doing much bookmaking lately, and to get back into it, I decided to make a little pocket journal para El manzana de mi ojo, de la semana. . . (the apple of my eye this week...)
 
I had a good roll of butcher paper that I planned to use.. but left it at home when I went to the studio to work. Instead of riding back up a hill, I stopped in the Antique Junkie, and bought a book entitled "Wild Animals I Have Known", for its lovely imagery and conveniently large margins!

the book is about 3.5x3.5 inches, covers made of matte board, covered in a beautiful batik (made by the recipient, he hated it but I knew I could transform it to something lovely). only 3 signatures, 32 pages. Coptic stitch binding... the inside coversheet (what's that called?) was printed by me from a sweet woodblock from India.

I'm happy! Sorry that the pics were taken on the mac photobooth, its the only way!










so those are a few samples of the pages; some have text, images, and blank pages as well. The story from the book I used was about a crow named silverspot and all the quirky things he did.
Now you make one =)
