Okay, since I have time to breathe, I updated the status of everyone on the first page. I wont have a chance to post feedback until Sunday, but it'll be the first thing I do!

Let me know if I missed anything!

Okay, you've convinced me that I must forge ahead with my melting. Practice makes perfect, right? And, I do have a bunch of other stuff I bought to make into bowls...can't let them go to waste now, can I?

Thanks for the added info on how you guys made the shapes, and the bonus tip (thanks christina!) on how to get the holes in the shapes without using a drill.

Okay, now that Ive posted my  pics I can ooh and aaah over what everyone received!

sweets4ever- I love the record bowls (I have a Slim Whitman album just waiting to be transformed), and the wind chime is such a neat idea (and I love the action shot videocomplete with sound)! And, I love the colors on your soda (pop) bottle plastic beads! And the earrings are gorgeous- I just love fused glass stuff!

christinacoghill- I love the necklace and the keychain (How did you and sweets get shapes? Cookie cutters?).The shadowboxes are very cool (shapes again!) and the plate and bowl are gorgeous!! I love the Lego lamp and hope that you can reconstruct it successfully! And, Im stealing the idea for a candle plate- someone is getting one for Christmas this year!

Everyone is getting such neat stuff!

Prepare to be dazzled and amazed! I am still stunned by how awesome this package is! Kappy is a melting genius!!

A beautiful lamp! It glows with blues and greens, and as soon as I can set up the ladder, I am hanging it up! It is so pretty when it is lit!!


Next, a bracelet and a pendant in rich earth tones. Just lovely!


And finally, a set of dishes that have a waffle "weave" to them. I am amazed at how he was able to make this!



Thank you so much for everything Kappy! I love everything!

I received from redheadskydiver a few days ago but haven't had a chance to post until tonight. Sorry for the delay! I asked for things that would be useful rather than decorative, and did she deliver!

First up, a placemat with my favorite quartet of men from the original series:


Then, a vase etched with the Star Trek logo (I stuffed it with yarn so I could get a good photo of the etching):


And, a set of magnets with Spock, the Enterprise, an emblem, Kirk, and the cast of Enterprise. They are already on the fridge!


Next (and probably my favorite item), is a tin decoupaged with Trek lingo (nacelle, positronic brain, etc.). I absolutely love the geeky, but totally made up words that they use!


And, inside of the tin, a microscope slide pendant! I love it!


Thanks! You totally spoiled me! Love it all!

I got my package from Pia_77 today! It's fantastic!

A crocheted bead and wire votive candle holder with yummy smelling candles!


A felted bowl- it is beautiful!


A thermos for carrying my soup to work!


With an AWESOME felted carrying cozy to put it in. I love the design and the colors!


Thank you so much Pia!!

I think I have a problem...I'm still melting! I just have so many ideas I can't stop!

That's a great problem to have! Wink

Because I am officially finished melting (maybe forever Wink ) and I opened my package from Kappy...and let me just say:

I bow to his melting greatness. I am totally bowled over by the awesomeness of the package!!!!! Wait until you see the pictures!

Which you'll have to do because I'm too blurry-eyed to take decent pictures. When I get back from the PO tomorrow night. I promise!

Prepare to be dazzled!

Thanks for all of the good cheer and encouragement! After another atrociously long day today (awake at 5:30 and home at 7:30), I came home to find a sizable box waiting for me! But, I'm not opening it until my stuff for tiffie is done!! And it's killing me! Wink

But, even though I am still tired, I am not as grouchy (or hungry) and I had a chance to brainstorm some more ideas on the way home. I currently have some things in the oven, and I'm going to work on something else that doesn't require an oven. I may salvage this swap (and my sanity) yet! If things work out well, I will need to do one more thing and let it dry, and then I can ship when I get home tomorrow!

Thanks for the encouragement! Walking away from it helped a little bit. And, I just realized that I haven't had dinner yet, so I could be extra grouchy from lack of food...

You are too kind Wink

I am currently attempting to resucitate a couple of things...if I look at them with a less jaundiced eye, perhaps I can make something out of them. And then, add in a couple of other things to round it all out...
