I just found the perfect kitchsy thing to make a fun craft with-if I have a partner who won't mind one item dealing with tropical islands. It was so hysterical, I had to buy it today!

I bought 4-5 things that had crafty possibilities,5 books,1 shirt for me,22 tops,4 slacks,3 purses and 3 dresses for her.Spent 113.00. I love Goodwill.
22 tops? Wow, you must be a shopping goddess! Smiley  I have a few local thrift stores I love too but I dont think Ive ever made out that good! My favorite thing though is to take the items home and torture my manfriend with guess how much I paid for this? ahhhe hates that game. Tongue

Hee, I love playing that game! My daughter is the shopping goddess-those tops were for her. She outgrew everything from last year.Just 2.00 a shirt, and today's Sears ad had plain old tank tops for 18.00. Sears, for pete's sake! That's not even a pricy department store.Whenever I go shopping with DD, I usually find diddly squat for me, and lovely,fancy things that even still have tags on for her.She has a gift.
And to get back to crafting, I found a cute little thing for the sea swap today that I'll have to tuck in my partner's package. Or make as part of a larger craft if it's a theme she  likes.Hmmm....

Arrgh! I'm in landlocked kentucky-you are all making me exceedingly jealous with all the ocean pictures! Lovely,all of them.

I want one so bad! Man, wish I'd thought of that instead of just the magnetic poetry kit I did for the swap. Great idea-I think I'll make one for myself one of these days(giving you full credit of course!). I'd like to do that with my middle schooler. Hey, you have to expose the kids to the classics,right? Grin
Again,great idea!

Whee! One thing left to finish! I got an idea for a last minute item, so I'll be working on that tonight. Craft serendipity-one small decorative part of one item was a piece of odd jewelry from Goodwill, had god knows how long. Went shopping with munchin today(she's outgrown everything!)-and found another identical one! Which was promptly glued on as soon as we got home. I bought 4-5 things that had crafty possibilities,5 books,1 shirt for me,22 tops,4 slacks,3 purses and 3 dresses for her.Spent 113.00. I love Goodwill. Even found something that has possibilities for the sea swap...

Donkeys, hmmm....for some reason I have this picture in my head of some poor kids discovering that that different colored pile on the beach is *not* sand. 

You made me crack up-I almost did a spit take with my tea! Anyway,posidon,god of the sea,created horses-so why not donkeys at the beach?

Arrgh. I was so optimistic about finishing up and mailing wednesday.Then I got the plague. I was so sick, I didn't even get online and visit craftster yesterday! Plus, it's spring break,which means DD is home all day. I love her,but I hate to craft around her.Well, when I'm on a deadline,anyway."what are you making? can I help? can you make one for me too?"Etc.Shouldn't complain too much, she actually asked me to make her stuff for xmas last year-wanted to be my swap partner.Say awww....
I've given up deciding what's a medium and what's a large-I've spent so much time on it all.So-3 smalls done,and 1 small/medium needs a tiny bit added on.3 medium to large items-2 of them done, one still being tweaked a bit.
Isn't it funny how we can think"is this really good enough to send?" and "I want to keep this myself!" about the same item? Cheesy

Manto Fev.com is where I ordered watch parts-but they are very tiny gears! I guess you could make some out of poly clay or resin. I've never done either, so i don't know how difficult it would be. You might want to go to the swap page-swaps that are finished-and skim the Steampunk Swap. I believe the subject came up, you might find some ideas. Good luck!

I just signed up! I'm weak,I have no willpower. Cheesy
My landlocked garden has a sea painting/thingy. I scavenged an oval wooden frame,inserted a scavenged piece of linoleum,painted it a lovely blue.Several coats,and sprinkled glitter on each coat,to give it some depth. Glued on some junk jewelry that looked like fish and sea creatures,had some plastic stems from silk flowers,used them at the bottom for seaweed. Cost me 99 cents for paint, and whatever the can of spray sealer cost. I wish I could upload pics from a digital camera. I know it'll eventually fall apart,but I love having it on my fence.
I love odd/broken jewelry. Someone giving me a small bagfull is what really got me crafting.
