Everyone's tattoos are so cool! Here are the pictures of mine:
The first is a dove of peace, which my mom, myself, and my two younger sisters got done in Hawaii last summer. It was done by Steve of Rainbow Falls tattoo in Kona. It is very special to us that we all have the same tattoo. The dove is holding a plumeria, which is the flower of hawaii, to symbolize our trip and when we got it done. I love that we all have the same tattoo!
This is my newest one, which I just got done a few weeks ago. My best buddy and I got the same tattoo only in different colors (her's is purple and pink). It is two cherry blossoms (which I LOVE). This one was done by Roger at Action tattoo in Yorba Linda, CA. He is quick and very very good. Also very reasonable.
Can't wait to get more, I think I am addicted. Maybe a backpiece next
Well, I'm a bit on the lame side and just bought a planner for this year (yes, I know it is june). They only had inserts of the ones for this year, so I just glued a piece of cardboard to the last page (so there would be two hard surfaces), and covered it in felt. It is hand stitched with embroidery floss. I also stitched a bit of elastic in the back, so that I can wrap it around the planner to keep it shut. I am in lurve with it!
Here is the first tote bag I ever made! Yay! It was last month and I learned in sewing class. It is a bit grubby now and I don't have the best pics of it, but I love it and I use it every day. Plus, I've used this pattern again and again!
This is something I made last year for my littlest sister's bday (she turned 15). She loves dragons and darkness and such, so it seemed appropriate. I hand sewed the ribbon on and then just stenciled the dragons with acrylic paint. My roommate at the time did the caligraphy...it means courage and is the same as the tattoo she has on her back. It turned out pretty well and it's held up great in the wash!
hey, pjmclnj thanks for putting up with my tardiness! My mom has cancer right now, which we just found out about during the swap, which is the reason for the delay. I'm so glad you liked your goodies! I actually watched the movie version of mansfield park just since you said it was your favorite. I can see why! Also, thanks for all the great goodies you sent my way...I love everything!
I'll post a pic for you, since you posted yours for me
Here is everything I sent: a bag, with regency inspired print, an altered altoid tin with jane austen on it, some jewelry, and a tray with the cover of mansfield park on it, plus some strawberry candy and ribbon
I am very tardy in posting pics of what my partner sent me, but I didn't even realize that her pics had gotten corrupted until I was looking through my pm's and saw one I'd missed! The horror! Well, she already posted a great pic of the hello kitty purse she sent me, but here are pics of all the rest of the goodies:
The awesome t-shirt, that fits perfectly by the way:
Some japanese tea in a cool bag, hello kitty ribbon, a hello kitty ribbon lined lipstick holder, a cute little booklet for pics, and some hello kitty earrings!
Plus all the great candy she sent, which was pretty much eaten the day it arrived
okay, I must post more glorification of the stuff I received from oops creations. Basically my b/f loves mma (mixed martial arts) which is a style of fighting that includes wrestling, kickboxing, muy tai (tai kickboxing), boxing, and jiu jitsu. He also loves raccoons. This is b/c I once joked that I looked like a raccoon after staying up for 36 hours straight to finish some term papers. Since then, he's called me his little raccoon. He kept bugging me and asking when his "raccoon paraphenalia" would arrive, and when it did, he said "All the other raccoon enthusiests" would be jealous. What a weirdo!
Here's the whole box of goodies!
The hat, the mma covered notebooks and bookmark and the coffee
A note on raccoon paper, which he absolutely loved
The noticeably empty (1 of 2 empty) tubs (covered with mma images) that had very good cookies inside. I had one, he ate the rest.
The raccoon, the newest addition to his collection, which includes the gray one I made him for V-day (it even has its own friendship bracelet) and a blue one which I received as a set of two in the stuffie swap, and which he promptly stole the same day!
the raccoon with its new owner, looking like a bit weird b/c he sucks at taking pictures
Plus, she sent an amigurumi kit for making a raccoon, just for me. It will be a while before I will be able to make it, as I continually suck at crocheting, but it def. is a motivator to keep trying
Thanks oops creations, you did a fab job! Yours is coming in the mail tomorrow, I promise!
okay even though lilbande already posted pics in a much more timely fashion, I had to share a few of my own:
the whole package including two raccoons, a hedgehog pin cushion (filled with pine to keep my needles sharp), a blackadder altoid tin, and a little needle case made out of a paint sample
the backs of the little raccoons, how cute!
one little raccoon joining my boyfriend's collection (he loves raccoons b/c I used to joke that I looked like a raccoon b/c of my dark circles from too much studying for school and now that's what he calls me) This lovely raccoon joins a gray one, which I made him for valentines day and a brown one which he received in the significant other swap!
Okay, here are the pics from what dragonslair sent me:
a blue g-string. It doesn't fit (not stretchy enough to get it on) but you gotta admire the her crocheting skills and color taste
a very cool cherry blossom blindfold on top of some white panties she sent
a t-shirt that says "Put on your big girl panties and deal with it"
a notebook for storing erotica with some other fun articles and such inside
a very lovely box. she stalked me and saw that I love cherry blossoms and was a geisha spy queen in my alter ego swap. The inside cover and the bottom also had pictures on it too
a picture that WAS in a frame but ended up all by itself after the frame and glass was totally broken. The box was labeled fragile, but I guess the mailman thought it meant let's play football with it. Oh well, the picture is def. salvagable :0
