1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Favorite Kids' Book Swap R.3 Gallery! on: June 20, 2006 11:44:39 PM
Great news!  My camera is coming home tomorrow, so I will be able to share the wonderful package that devilninny sent me so very long ago!

Sorry for the long wait, dev; my camera is joint custody with the boyfriend, and he kept forgetting to bring it back from his parents house for the past several weeks.  Roll Eyes

I'm loving the idea of sending water colors.  Very cool.  And the pillow cases are awesome - I'd be afraid to sleep on them for fear of messing them up (my hair is pink - thus, my white pillow cases are also pink now)!

Nonsense!  I never thought the package was "measley"!  I've already made use of the awesome bobby pins, and the painted tin is *perfect* for all my stray bobbins i have lying around!  I loved my swap package!  Sorry I'm taking so long on the pics - my boyfriend took our digi cam home to take pictures of his mom's new puppy, so I'm waiting for it to return.  I will post soon!

By the way, your cats are freakin' adorable!  I'm glad you're all happy with the package!  I had a lot of fun on this swap, and I've finally been inspired to finish some projects because of this surge of creativity.  Cheesy 

ps.  I'm still working on that coptic-bound journal I had really wanted to send you.  It was going to be so cute Sad.  Anybody have any tips on how to get the signatures bound together more tightly?  They just keep falling apart.  Boo.   Cry

Jeez, I'm such an idiot...

Sorry, devilninny, I sent it a day late without realizing it.  For some reason, I was thinking the deadline was on the last day of may.  But, it has been shipped now, Priority Mail, so hopefully it will be there by Friday!

I'm getting frustrated.  Angry

I sent off for my book on half.com well over two weeks ago (before we got partners... hey, I wanted to read it again  Embarrassed), and it hasn't arrived yet!  Grrrr...

I fear I may have to resort to plan B...

So I've been really itching to join a swap, and this one strikes my fancy.  My info has been sent.

So excited!  I just ordered my book!  It's a really short with pictures and counting and whatnot - choc full of crafty inspiration, imo.  I haven't seen my original copy in years.  Now I'm all nostalgic and stuff - I can still hear my dad reading it to my brother and me in my mind.

That is gorgeous!  I fear sewing with anything that is in the least bit mesh-y, but this has inspired me and given me new hope! 

As for the selling price of something so well done *and* handmade, I'd say factor in the cost of materials plus how many hours you spent making it (and an hourly wage).  Look at clothing from, say, supayana [http://www.supayana.com/]... her tops range from 80 to 100 dollars, and people still buy them.  So yeah, definitely don't underprice them because they sell for cheap at the mall, is what I'm saying.  Handmade, one of a kind is better.

Yatta!!!  *hugs you*  Thank you!  As a 3rd year Japanese language student, I should have thought to search for a romanized Japanese spelling...  Embarrassed  But I didn't.  I appreciate your efforts.  Cheesy

Well, those both sound about like what I'm talking about, except I could swear she put vegetables in hers, like peas and carrots, maybe some sort of beans...  Maybe she was just improvising?  Thanks so much for the help, though!   Smiley
10  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / So, uh... Croquet, anyone? on: February 19, 2006 10:33:16 PM
So when I was dating a Japanese guy, his mom would always make him food and send it back to school with him whenever he went home.  And his mom was a really, really good cook.  She made these little roundish things, he said they were called "croquet", and that Japanese people love them (though I don't think it's originally a Japanese dish).  Anyway, it was really good, and had vegetables, and some other good unidentifiable foodstuffs in it, and we ate it with tonkatsu sauce.  Mmmm.... *drools*  Anyone know what I'm talking about?  I've searched for recipes online, but none of them sound quite right.  She had a couple recipes, one made with mashed potatoes, and the other made with (i think) crab meat.

If anyone could help, I would very much appreciate it.  I'd ask him, but he's been rather evasive since we've broken up.  Go figure.  Roll Eyes
