those are beautiful, would love to see them a bit closer up, but i completely understand camera problems!

Well, I can post the pics I have, but bear in mind that any flaws in the images are the fault of the photographer, not my awesome partner!

AlternaWidget- You put together a beautiful package! It's such a bummer that parts of it were confiscated (I can understand their concerns in terms of invasives species, however- some plants can regenerate from fragments of the plant, so unless the bird's nest was plastic, it would be unknown plant matter...which totally, totally sucks!), but hopefully the awesome dodecahedron can be reclaimed!!

I received my package from the_trademarks today, and I am totally bummed that I couldn't have sent her package out at the same time. I am going to be waiting on the doorstep of the sewing machine repair shop first thing tomorrow...because if he can fix it quickly, I could actually make the PO by tomorrow afternoon...I am that close to finishing!!

So, let me just say, whoever said that nice things come in small packages wasn't entirely accurate...FANTASTIC things come in small packages!

I am totally into geeky science jewlery, and my partner came through big time!

I don't have any good close-ups...I can try later if anyone wants, but they came out all blurry, even with the macro setting (where is that darn camera instruction manual??). So, a group shot will have to do, unfortunately!

The green earrings are made with triangular and hexagonal tree agate, with round lodolite beads. The other pair is made with rose quartz and bleached mother of pearl. Just beautiful!!

In the middle are two resin on wood pendants- a brain and a cool image that is actually a picture of coagulation. I just love the subtle geekiness of it!

Above that is a cartoon from a 1972 issue of Science World magazine Wink

And finally, two fused glass pieces with dichroic glass in them. One of them even has a small painted glass flask in it!

She included a letter typed on an actual typewriter to explain what everything is. I love it all!!!

Thanks so much, Jasmine!

My partner, kristen219, received her whimsies a few days ago, but between working crazy hours and a non-functioning camera, she hasn't been able to post pics...so I'm posting for her! Wink

Sorry for the glut of pics...I don't have a group shot of everything...

414  Practice Macro Photos (img heavy) in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by craftADDchick on: April 26, 2008 08:31:34 AM
Well, after entering and then perusing the Macro Photo Challenge, I decided that I needed to play around with my camera a bit more. I let the camera do most of the work, but I think there is a way for me to exert a little more control...I'll just have to find the manual and do a bit of reading Wink

Anyway, here are some of my favorites out of the dozen or so that I took. And, I realized that one drawback to macro photos is that they make the dust look macro too!

Yoda Toy (still in package)

Eileen "heart" Stan (This is etched into the glass of one of the windows of my house...from the original owner, I think...because the family I bought it from didn't have an Eileen or a Stan...)

My pile of watches

Tree Cookies (slices of tree trunks)

Pencil Sharpener

Light Switch (my house is in the middle of work...)


Pine Cone

K'nex Guy

Green Bottle

I didn't manipulate any of these photos. I have Photoshop, but I don't really know how to use it  Tongue

I like the colors too craftADDchick. Have you posted a pic of all your squares together? 

Hmmmm...while I'm waiting for something to dry, I could go and do that...

Back in a bit...

Okay! Here they are!

After a morning of sitting at the car dealers waiting for them to fix my car, it was such treat to come home to find a box of whimsies waiting for me! My partner, kristen219, spoiled me with a couple of extras, too!

Stuffed into the jar:

And some close-ups:

Cool fabric, mini notecards, stickers (butterflies and pirates!), furry green fabric (future mini-monster), cherry appliques and a vintage-y postcard plaque.

A bunch of very cool beads and charms to make stuff with! I love the key and the heart! And, the purple polymer beads are very cool (did you make them, Kristen?) and will be turned into earrings, I think Wink

A mini manicure set, more cute emery boards, sticky notes, beads, awesome paper clips, cute little buttons (check out the colored pencil ones), little notebook paper charms, a thimble, a duck (probably one of my favorite items, for some inexplicable reason), a bear rubber stamp, pretty binder clips, a bejeweled hair clip, a mini bottle of Tylenol, and some felt stick-on numbers and letters.

And, a shot of a very pretty bracelet! It's so perfect for Spring!

Thanks, Kristen! I hope you like your whimsies as much as I like mine! Thanks for being my partner!  Grin

I finally finished weaving in my ends so here's my April square! I'm not sure I'm lovin' the rose and peach combo, but maybe I just need to use the rose a bit more. Anyway, here it is in all of it's glory Wink

And, this weekend, I'll be working on the May '07 square so when May '08 rolls around, I should be ready!

Still pluggin' along! Here is my April square! I've wanted to make this one since I first saw it, but I'm staying true to the course and doing them in order. Love it! Definitely on the "do again" list!

Yup! You guys were right! And, it looks like it's a female. Here's the other shot I mentioned. This is the male:

It's also called an eastern tiger swallowtail.

420  Macro Photo Challenge: Butterfly Feeding in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by craftADDchick on: April 20, 2008 08:06:26 PM
I took this picture of a butterfly (anyone know what kind?) feeding on a flower. I got right in close and it never moved!

I think my camera is partial to outside nature shots in close-up. Anything I try to photograph inside never comes out well. This is probably one of my favorite pictures!
