I'd love see more pictures of it all! Grin


Those are the best I can do on the scanner. If monkeysee wants to post, she can-but she told me her ancient camera is dying. But thanks! It was indeed a cool swap package.

Okay, behold the awesomeness-
her camera is dying, and I used the scanner, so these don't do it justice, as well as being pic heavy.
The mermaid

Embroiderd pillowcase and handmade card


jewelry with shrinky dinks, sea glass and more-and she and her kids collected the sea glass from thier beach


handmade journal, with built in shrinky bookmark and charm


Inside of journal


detail of the great bag


more bag detail, and folded down a bit to show the lining fabric


The extras are cool fishy shower gel, and little terry fishies, and a sqoosh ball. I wish you could see all the detail on the shrinkys-the one on the bracelet has this quote-
My life is like a stroll upon the beach as near to the oceans edge as I can go-Henry David Thoreau(The miss spelling is my bad-my middle aged eyes can't make out all the letters Grin)

Thanks again, Monkey_Sea_Monkey_Do! I love everything!!

I just got my package from the amazing monkey see monkey do.
And she spoiled me big time! I'll let her posts pics if she has them-if not, tonight I'll have time to put stuff on the scanner.
Anybody would be lucky to have her for a partner.
I kept unwrapping cool thing after cool thing-if I'd gotten her package first, I would have been embarassed to send out my own!
Thanks again, partner!

Sorry about your machine woes, Imagine.

On a side note-why don't we put the link for the sulky chat group on the first page of this thread, where it will be easy to find? Just a thought.

Congratulations, babystarlight! I see you're crafting up your own personal mini me.

On a crafty note-I am way behind on this swap. But I have the week off work! (does happy dance). I'll have glue stuck to my fingers before you know it!

You're welcome! The rice pack-hee-I was waiting in line at dollar tree and saw a rack of swim trunks-and my mind went *ding!*
So yes, that's where the fabric came from. The surfer purse was a thrift store find. And the record album purse is a little rough, but when I found that album,I had to do something with it.
I'm glad you liked your stuff!
And that pic of your son is precious. It'll be good to drag out when he's a teen. Grin

I just heard from my partner-looks like I don't need an angel after all!  Cheesy
1898  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: The Super Sea Swap Splendid Gallery! on: June 28, 2008 04:46:18 PM
Well, I'd like to tell you guys what I made, to share it a little. You'll have to use your imaginations! Grin
A record album cover tote bag-not perfect, but fun. I found a thrift store album called "Giant of Hawaii" from the honolulu record club. A really big guy in a white jumpsuit, with a couple of girls looking at him adoringly.
For smalls-silly earrings made with rubber fish, and a couple of small pirates. I painted a couple of small wooden boxes, glued a metal fish onto one.
A necklace I was very proud of. The centerpiece was a beautiful shell pendant, necklace made from blue and green blend cotton yarn, braided, with nice beads worked in. And I hung 6 silver sea charms on it.
I bought a fancy silver painted wood frame, about 4 x 6, and did a mermaid scene collage that turned out very well.
And some little stuff I've forgotten at the moment.
Thanks.

Thank you, Eykarya, and thank you,Sulky.
this is a lesson to me not to be in such a hurry to ship I don't put stuff on the scanner-or at least take pics with a disposable camera.
Sigh.
I truly appreciate you taking the time to angel for me.
