2  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Personal/Private Swap Gallery August 2008 on: August 27, 2008 05:27:20 PM
i did a personal swap with the fabulous pinkanddinky -- here's what she sent me:


three light switch plates, a set of four coasters, a cute container holding three hair elastics with adorable fabric-covered buttons, and an AMAZING handmade ceramic mug packed with tea  Grin  i included the card in with the crafted stuff 'cause it's just so cute  Wink


close-up of the mug:


the pictures really don't do anything justice -- pinkanddinky has great attention to detail and everything she sent was flawless and exactly what i'd wanted Smiley -- but especially not that mug!  it has a gorgeous glaze and is very well made... i tried to learn wheelthrowing once upon a time and never came up with anything close to this!  Cheesy

thanks again for a great swap, pinkanddinky!

The feet are orangish pipe cleaners, but I cut all the fuzzy stuff off, except what is still twisted in the wire.  I was pretty proud of myself, actually, so I'm glad you asked!  Smiley

brilliant!!

i claim phoenixfiredesigns for a handcarved stamp!  third claim this round; i'm in the USA.

I'm in the USA.  Biggest wishes of the moment are in red.


Crafted items:

* - A bag like this: http://www.elsewares.com/commerce/Twig-Diaper-Tote_MPD599.html

Doesnt need all the inside pockets since I dont need a diaper bag, I just like the style. **I would LOVE a messenger bag version of this**


 

- A reconned shirt like this one: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=241092.msg2656552;topicseen#msg2656552

 

- PMC crane earrings (I can dream, right?)

 

- A silver-toned ring.  Some that I like:

- http://wists.com/catpants/f919887d293f9de4f9559c47ad2fffd9

- http://wists.com/catpants/e2b8239a307ff2de6f31b8fd90baa462

 

- A pillow like this: http://wists.com/catpants/7a30f37cfa5e79e3658b5d032b9f01c2

 
- An amigurumi version of my angora rabbit (doesn't have to be as fluffy as he is).  There are tons of cutesy bunny patterns on etsy Smiley
 

- Things for my apartment patio to make it more like a yard.  Some ideas: pretty flower pots, stained glass suncatchers, windchimes, a gourd birdhouse like this: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=8417699, etc.

- Birthday cards with envelopes.  I send birthday cards to all of my extended family, so I go through quite a few each year.  I especially would like cards that are gender/age neutral.


- Something from my wists: http://wists.com/catpants.  The newer things are usually a safer bet, although you still may want to check with me before diving in to crafting something on there Smiley

Craft supplies:

 

- Sock yarn: any color, as long as it's nice and enough for a pair of adult socks


- Issues of the following magazines: Adorn, Knit.1, or KnitSimple.  Please check with me for the last two as I already have a couple issues or check out my ravelry library to see what I have so far: http://www.ravelry.com/people/catpants/library/magazines

 

Extras:

 

- Seam ripper

- Treats are always nice Smiley  (especially happy hippo, alpenmilch, green tea meltykiss)

- Catnip

- A copy of your zine, your best friend's zine, your mom's zine, etc

A little about me:  I have one French Angora rabbit and two cats.  I live alone and try to maintain a balance between being organized and being spontaneously creative.  I'm 21 years old and I spend my days providing vocational support for with people with developmental disabilities.  At some point I plan on makin' babies and getting a master's degree, but for now I'm pretty content with the way things are going.  Crafts I do well are knitting and spinning.  I occasionally do some basic sewing, jewelry making, and paper crafts.  I don't mind thrifted/recycled items although I'm somewhat sensitive to smell.  I don't have any allergies and have been a nonsmoker since May 1st (hooray!).

Things I like: happy colors, family, books and zines, herbalism, astrology, being outside, riding bikes, animals, gardening, nature, kitsch, chai tea, simplicity.  Things that make me roll my eyes: neon, the 80s, ironic mustaches/haircuts, meat, political/religious symbols, novelty yarn, uncomfortable clothing for the sake of fashion.

Someone once told me, "I love your house because everything in it is handmade.  I didn't see anything mass-produced and plastic."  This is also why I love my home; anything made with care will be well-loved here for many years to come Smiley  Thanks in advance for picking me!!
