4081  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: IYP22 Crafting with the Glitz GALLERY! on: March 07, 2013 06:02:43 AM
Thanks for posting the pics maxxev - I was so nervous as to whether you would like your package - I knew you would send something awesome (and it was soo soooo soooooo awesome) and I wanted to try to make something that was worthy and would hopefully express how much I appreciate your awesomeness.

I have to admit, I love how the Enterprise etchings worked out.  I had to try those a few times, and then had problems with my metal punch, so all the metal etched pieces caused me a bit a stress and ire, but when I buffed the Enterprise pieces and saw how the patina really highlighted the lines of it, I was so happy with how it looked.  I was hoping the NC-1701 would be more defined - but considering how my fails were, I decided that was as clear as I could get it!

I am loving this entire gallery.  I am going to have to go back through and pin several things for myself!

It makes me want to join in and abandon more art and yarn bomb too...

I saw this in the paper tonight on the front page of one of the sections in the paper, with a nice big pic of the cute little crocheted hearts.  Looks like someone is leaving a little bit of crocheted love in their neighbourhood.  Makes me think of the art abandonment swap we did last year, and I know at least one other member of that swap lives in the same city as me, and possibly in that area...  I know that there are several Craftsters who live in the same city too - so 'fess up!  I'm dying to know!

Wow - not only is it an awesome looking cake - but lemon cake!  what is not to love  about it!  DH, who is phobic of snakes, took one look at it and was utterly disgusted.  Which is a good thing because it just shows how fantastic you made it look!

Oh wow - there are some gorgeous, truly stunning pieces of art showing up.  I am in total awe.  I am in total lust over those shoes - would it be wrong to hang them up on the wall to display - because that is what I would be tempted to do!

I received from maxxev, and finally picked it up at the PO yesterday.  I was late getting home, so I opened it this morning and I am in ***LOVE***.  I loved her Terry Pratchett dishware that she made for her brother for Christmas and we were PMing about a personal swap before the IYP came up, so I invited her to dance with me when this came up and she sent me exactly what I was in love with.

I now have my own Death plate - and it will never be sullied by food - I am hanging it up as art in either my craft room or in my bedroom - I love it too much to ever see it possibly get dulled, scratched, or chipped.

Be jealous all you other Pratchett lovers - be in awe of the power and glory of DEATH!



I can't tell you how much I love it (and am so grateful that Canada Post did not destroy it!)

Also, as extras she sent me some of her lovely polymer clay work - she decorated the handles of two crochet hooks for me - they are so smooth and pretty!  Perfect timing as I was thinking of starting a baby blanket for a coworker and the 5 mm is perfect for it!





I love the colours you chose, maxxev - I love the gradation of colour, and the entire look of them!

Thank you thank you thank you!  I sincerely hope my package pleases you - I am afraid of disappointing you because you knocked it way out of the park for me!

Nice start to the gallery - are the aprons embroidered or stenciled?

What a fantastic mixed media piece - I love the rabbit image, and the colours are perfect!  I love the distressed look, and how it highlights the stark rabbit image.
