1  Re: Dresden Files Swap in The Swap Gallery by liz156 on: September 26, 2011 05:59:15 PM
Back from the post office and was totally impressed with my package!!  First off mightyminniemouse put together my very own apprentice kit!


Complete with handmade, handbound note book, play-doh to do my own thaumaturgy, glow stick wands, and 3 potions to start me off.


close up of the awesome book & the potions: Escape, Flight, & Love.


Also got a great painted Bob the Skull shopping bag (which I have used already Grin What!?  I couldnt wait to get it all home and cracked the box in the parking lot!  The bag came in very handy schlepping it all home on the bus Wink), my favourite Dresden quote, and a shield bracelet of my very own.


close up of the quote, and a little detail of the skull and bracelet.

THANKS mightyminniemouse!

Got my box in the mail yesterday from camelama!  Shortly after the partnering I got a tantalizing message, asking if she could decorate "around" the matchbox.  I was intrigued not knowing what to expect & not wanting to douse any crafty impulses,  I said yes, go for it!  And man, was I surprised!!  She made me a felt lizard matchbox cover!  How cool is that??


In the box were some cool guitar, star, & music patches (thats not the right word but my brain is faling me), a really pretty cameo, a sweet heart eraser, a cool green devil duck pencil topper, a fimo chocolate chip cookie pendant,  & a mess of beads.

THANKS CAMELAMA!!!

*phew* finally home after the holidays & found my inchies from Smmarrt waiting for me!  Pics follow, dialup-ers beware Grin

I love the clever way she sent them, I have no idea where she got a peice of cardstock this long!!


The front cover & the first page (Deck the halls!)


"Bake some treats" & "December 2010"


"Sing and celebrate" & "Xmas wishes for you and me"


"Let it snow!" & "The Dark Side of Christmas"
The flash got in the way there on the 2nd page, the first one is an awkward family photo (which I cant decide is Smmarrt's or not  Wink) & a cut up hand that says "Assembly required" (very fitting as I cut myself putting together a racetrack for my cousin!)


and my favourite ones!  Circle inchies, such a clever idea Cheesy

5  remind me to switch to garlic shampoo in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by liz156 on: October 07, 2010 09:47:33 PM
I found the perfect colour of green yarn (Red Heart Soft Touch to be exact), and so, I have my Halloween costume.  I made a brain slug!  LET ME SHOW YOU!



I've seen a few patterns online (including a few listed here), but ended up making it up as I went along.  2 strands held together in hdc made up like a kids hat (started with 14dc on the first round & increased each round until 36 total hdc (it seemed wide enough at that point).  The last row I used a modified petal pattern & ended up with 5 blobbies.  Its stuffed with polyfil, and I made a separate circle in dc to stitch to the bottom to hold it all in.  The eyeball is a yo-yo from an old t-shirt with a black button.  I did a 4 stitch i-cord for the antenna, tied in a knot at each end.  I used what I think is fishing line to attach it to a black headband, which also kind of helped it to mold to the curve of my head a bit.

All in all I'm pretty satisfied with it, and it will serve perfectly well for a work-place costume.
