1  Calls for Swap Angels / Swap Angel Archive / Halloween in December swap - 2 Found.....May need 1 more on: December 15, 2006 09:26:29 PM
Ok, this call for an angel is a lil different, psyche crafted stuff for her partner that was made for her flakie partner, you are going to get what psyche crafted. She did awesome and didn't send on a whim and that whim was right cause her flake didn't respond to anything. So anyway, here is her info on the swap, pm me if you can help this super crafter!

***************************************
Name of swap: Halloween for Christmas Swap!
Craftster username: psyche
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country? Yep!

List your favorite Creepy Halloween Creatures or icons: For this swap, I'm picturing a glam/gothy/Victorian-creepy Christmas. NOT so much of the orange, pumpkins, gore, or candy corn.... but PLENTY of skulls/skeletons, ravens, bats, tombstones, black cats.... And feel free to play up any or all of my "themes" --> the glam (think feather boas and vinyl), gothy (self explanatory!), or the Victorian-creepy (good description on Gothic Martha's site... http://www.trystancraft.com/martha/motifs/victorian.html ... it deals mostly with decor, but can be applied to anything!)

What is your favorite thing to decorate in December with?/ What type of craft do you hope to receive?
Well I do like Christmas ornaments, but right now I live in the "student ghetto", and our (fake) tree is about a foot tall. So either really tiny ornaments or something to put in my "hope chest" (my mom's term, for when I ever get a real house. Ha.).
I would love an apron in my themes/colours that can double for baking and crafting!
Jewellery is never turned away... for this swap, extremely involved silver necklaces or rings (maybe highlighted with black or jewel tones..) that can work as gothy or fancy, depending on the outfit it's worn with woudl be neat
I like to have a lot of fun with wrapping presents. Some gothy/creepy wrapping supplies could be cool! (Is is possible to make wrapping PAPER? I don't know!)
Some sort of clothing! Ha.
Um.. okay. I've come to a mental roadblock. I tried to think up as many specific suggestions as possible... don't feel limited by this list! These are just things that would be neat, but I love many things 

Favorite color(s)- For this swap, I think black with white (stripes? big polka dots?) would be cool. Other than black, the jewel tones or metallics are nice (deep colours mainly... burgandy, purple, deep green, jewel-y red, sapphire blue... ), and silver and gold are fun too! (Although I wouldn't want something made with the Nightmare Before Christmas Theme, the colour scheme in that movie is to die for... no pun intended...)

What type of crafts do you do? stencilling, some jewellery (earrings, some random stuff), papercrafts, [very new!] knitter, sewing (just started on MACHINE, but also do by hand), embroidery, remaking/revamping anything I can get my hands on (coasters, picture frames, purses...), duct/packing tape wallets & things, lip gloss, basic graphic design, hemp stuff.... and anything I decide to suddenly learn!

Is there anything you don't want? Ooh. Bracelets! I don't wear them often enough, and I just got some cool ones in my most recent swaps. I don't want to have too many bracelets and not enough time to wear them!

Allergies- Nope.

Do you wear jewelry- If so please give measurements: Yep! Although I never know what measurements to give (or to ask for, for that matter), so just ask!

Would you enjoy receiving clothing? If so give measurements: Yep! Mall sizes I'm usually an XL in shirts, and a very difficult size to find in pants. Ha. (About a 14/15... ish... )

Any other info you think would be helpful for your partner? Sure. I have a wists account: http://www.wists.com/psyche/DESIRES (I use my tags as categories: the DESIRES category is what I want, and the other ones are for myself, but can be interesting to see!); and a swap info  for partners: http://jesstacular.spaces.live.com/blog/ .

8  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / BUDDY THE ELF SAYS YOU SMELL LIKE BEEF & CHEESE! on: October 30, 2006 08:43:41 AM
BUDDY THE ELF, WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE COLOR?


OK......I found the jacket and pants at a thrift store, I put the cuffs, collar and the gold trim stuff around the jacket. The hat I made out of felt and was pretty much trial and error! The wig is a Napoleon Dynamite wig from last year. I also made elf shoe covers outta felt to cover my shoes. The pants were baggy and I had to take them in a lot! ENJOY! The belt I had out of an aluminum can, some thick gold ribbon, an old leather purse & velcro.
I had fun making it and totally had a blast wearing it out! p.s. I won 2nd place for it at a bar! Last year I was Mugatu from Zoolander, that costume was great!

For those of you that don't know who Buddy the Elf is...here is what he actually looks like
