1  Fairy house in Completed Projects by ghostgirl on: May 16, 2008 05:53:11 AM
Here is what my son and I made together the other night:



This is a perfect project to do with kids- we had so much fun gathering up the materials (moss, twigs, tiny pine cones, a tiny shell, etc) and then putting it all together.

If you look closely you'll see the tiny shell we used as a bowl to hold the fairies' milk inside. My son ran outside the next morning to see if the fairies had drank the milk yet (they hadn't). Sometimes it takes them a few days to discover these things, you know  Smiley

2  Re: Gardening Supply Swap! DONE! in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by ghostgirl on: April 08, 2008 05:56:04 PM
I received from Lindsoriah last Thurs! Everything is amazing- my son especially loved the t-shirt. He took it from me immediately and insisted on wearing it for the rest of the day! The apron has already been in use- I put in so many bulbs this weekend. so, without further ado, here is the awesome stuff that I have received!

thank you, Lindsoriah, I love it all!

One thing that I did not photograph was two packets of organic seeds she sent me. My husband grabbed them and they got mixed up with all of the other seed packets that we have  Cheesy

The apron:


The Famous Tomatosaurus Rex T-shirt. You can see my boy is roaring like Tomatosaurus Rex!


and a lovely gardening notebook with a hand drawn flower:


Thank you so much! I love it all  Grin

Here are the action shots of the *amazing* and awesome things that zelda.suicide sent me!!

me, in my t-shirt of a stencilled octopus from "The Magic Bottle" by Camille Rose garcia (one of my favorite artists)


My son in his skull and cross bones T-shirt- he *loves* it! He was so excited that something in my package was for him:


Look at how well the placemats match my wall color- amazing! (lovely toilet in the background- I just noticed that - classy! that is our middle name.)


Everything together. Zelda.suicide is so talented- thank you so much. I love it all!! The shrinky dinks (posted before) are palso particularly well done- mine usually warp in the oven (gas) but Zelda's were all perfect!

I received from Mamamoonie last week- here is my loot!

Thank you mamamoonie!

I needed a huge bag for work- it's something I really needed  Smiley:



these are things she makes at her work- the vision balm is especially cool- you are supposed to rub it on your temples and then you will have prophetic dreams! Very cool!!



and some tea (from her work)

a votive w/ bat shrinky dink I made:

I just received my awesome swap package from jenwestie! I got a bucket organizer too! I love everything so much. Here it all is together:



There is: the bucket organizer, a teacup bird feeder (there is an attachment on the bottom that you can't see in the photo to attach it to the top of a dowel like a stake), a candle, some hand lotion, and a bandana!

Closeup of the bucket organizer. It has a lot of pockets all around it to hold all of my stuff:



Closeup opf the bandana. It is filled with granules that you can freeze so that it keeps your forehead cool. A great idea!



And a closeup of the bird feeder:



Thank you so much jenwestie! I love it all  Grin

Hey everyone. I received from GougeAway! Here is what she sent (minus a package of candy that was immediately eaten, and the bumper sticker that was immediately put on my fridge with all of the others!) Here is everything together- book bag, "Reading is sexy" button, and some bookmarks and postcards from Powell's Books:



The book is called Kiss Me Judas by Will Christopher Baer.

This is the back of the bag- isn't it cute! My son immediately ran off with it and now it's "his". He returned his library books in it on Sat.



And here is the "Reading is Sexy" bumper sticker right below my Cramps sticker on my fridge!



Thanks so much GougeAway!

wow- there is so much amazing stuff here. I love that fabric bookmark, kantha!

I can't believe sweetestangel's box was so destroyed! I'm really glad that I wrapped everything up so well. I told them specifically that it had glass in it. Really, what they did to that box is just inexcusable.

Here's the bookmark that I made for sweetest angel (since her photo was a little blurry.). It is a very short story written by neil Gaiman (whom we both love, and as it turns out so does almost every other person in this swap. Really, when I was reading everyone's swap info they sent me I was astonished at how many Neil fans we had here) So,  here's a link to the article that has Neil's very short story- the stories had to be six words long:

http://www.wired.com/wired/archive/14.11/sixwords.html

and the bookmark:


the flower seller from Stardust


for both of the illustrations I sent sweetestangel, I drew everything first in pen and ink, then scanned the pen and ink and painted it in photoshop. This is pretty much how I illustrate everything  Smiley
