451  Re: Fill-a-Matchbox SUPPLY Swap R1 (Send Feb 28) in The Swap Gallery by craftADDchick on: March 27, 2007 01:52:35 PM
Today, I got a second box from Alana1223! It turns out that the one that I posted earlier, which I thought was the second box she sent, was actually the first box she sent. I was so excited, I never even looked at the postmark (3 weeks to get here- straight up the east coast!).

And, the second box is just as awesome as the first one was!

Here it is wrapped in ribbon, and unwrapped. I love the decoration on this, especially the striped paper!


The whole lot...beads, jewelry findings, awesome charms, stickers and paper doo-dads, tags, mini playing cards...awesome!

A close-up of an awesome stamp- this will be turned into a pendant as soon as I learn how to solder!

And a close up of some of the charms: a hedgehog, a llama (the llamas from the 2 boxes will be earrings), cherries and leaves (destiny= earrings!), Ger rune (harvest, growth, rebirth), a fish skeleton, a dog bone, a goddess (seen it before but don't know it), a pink pig, a Thumper pic (the square one) and a sushi charm!

I love everything Alana and I'll be sending you along another 'something' soon!

This swap was so much fun and I had GREAT swap partners! Thanks Alana1223 and Modus Operandi- you rock!

Hooray! I received my box from Alana1223. The first box she sent seems to have gone astray, so we both waited anxiously for this one to arrive safely. And, it's a fabulous one!! So, in celebration of its arrival, lots of pics!

First of all...it was heavy...

And wrapped in ribbon:

But just as lovely when unwrapped- decorated with blue paper and silver glitter glue:

The long shot to show all of the goodies:

Hello Kitty, Flowers, Tags- destined for cards...

Charms: A llama, a sea turtle, a hedgehog (which matches a pair of earrings I have), 2 tiny dragonflies, Celtic knot, tree, Os (rune meaning harmony, wisdom, love)

Mini Playing Cards, Passport and World Map...

Stickers, Tiny Seashells, Jewelry Findings, Tags

And a bunch of beads in my FAVORITE colors!

Was this a great box, or what?!?!  Grin  Thanks Alana!

I received parts from Pinkstars69 today. So now I officially have all of my parts! Whoo-hoo! And, since I got a brief reprieve on getting my progress reports finished for school, I am going to procrastinate tonight and start assembling my bear!!

Such bright and cheery fabrics!

I received my box from Modus Operandi today, too! And, after a lousy afternoon, it was much needed boost!

The box was decorated with a neat polka dot paper and a picture of a teddy bear in need of some TLC (looks like the one I had as a kid!).

She packed in a bunch of cool beads, including a cool square shell bead, an orange felted bead, a piece of wire-wrapped beach glass, one that looks like Bali silver, and a very neat cross with a blue stone in the center (might not show up well in the pic); a bunch of jump rings, a toggle clasp, a barrel clasp, a pair of french ear wires, some food charms, a pretty little button; supplies and directions for making 2 fabric covered buttons, including some neat vintage-looking fabric pieces. So much stuff for my much-neglected jewelry making! Guess what I'll be doing this weekend!


Thanks a bunch! I love it all!!

Okay- I finally finished my stuff for Stand Up for Kids! I was able to make 6 hat and scarf sets out of fleece. Each set is made out of 2 coordinating fleece fabrics (except for 1) I think I'll be popping them in the mail tomorrow.

458  Deep Ocean Angler Fish (with Bonus Science Lesson!) in Crochet: Completed Projects by craftADDchick on: February 24, 2007 08:54:01 PM
Okay, nothing like a last minute entry! Here is the Deep Ocean Angler Fish, complete with glowing "lure!" The lure (bioluminescent in real life- green LED in the Craftster world!) is dangled in front of the very large mouth to attract prey. When they prey swims too close- CHOMP! Dinner time!

Dyno, you were much faster than I was at getting a drawing together!

I was thinking that you could cut it on the fold (keeping the back seam and the shoulder seams), like this:

Hopefully the image works! And of course, you'd have to give it a little more of a flare at the bottom...

Here is my practice bear, a small one, made out of grey fleece (he's cuddly soft!). His nose is a bit crooked, so I may re-embroider it, but I still think he's pretty cute. I placed the eyes and ears where the pattern indicated and I wasn't too sure I was going to like it, but once he was finished, the placement looked okay. I also tried out the doll joints, and I think they came out okay (although they show when his arms and legs are in certain positions). I put interfacing where the joints were and made small holes, as recommended by Luckie Strike, and it seemed to work okay. I only had to rip out one seam, so I think I'll be all set when it's time to build my Frankenteddy!
