Yay! I received my package from Hoboe and I'm so excited to post!

Behold, Sansa and Arya. Hoboe has some mad Amigurumi skillz


Closeup of Sansa with her pearl necklace. I immediately recognized her when I pulled her out of the box.


Closeup of Arya with Needle.


Needle is a real needle.


I'm in love with their hair. So soft and perfect.


Bonus upskirt shot of Sansa. Of course a real lady would never show us up her skirt.


I am in love with these two gals. Thank you so much Hoboe.

Sorry for the long time to respond. I just got back from traveling across the country.

I made the paper cuts using scissors of various sizes, exacto knives, blades, hole punchers, and dies. I spent nearly an entire day (5 or so hours) cutting out the first one (during the hurricane) but the second one took maybe only half that time but was done over the course of a few days. The design process took way more time than that. My first designs were way too elaborate and ambitious. Believe it or not, these are the "edited" versions.

The necklace is made using the same techniques but used industrial strength shrink plastic and then painted and sealed them. Since these are cut out at twice the finished size and then shrank, it's easier to get the details and then file out the imperfections. Although, if I end up putting this into production, I will probably source out a laser cutting service. It's too complicated to do any volume and keep my sanity.

Yay! I'm glad everything got to you in tact Hoboe! I can't wait to see what you sent.

Including some close ups of the paper cuts and necklace. I'm seriously working on crests for all the major houses!











And the necklace! I debated whether I should send this or not because I wasn't sure my partner would like it. I liked it so much that I figured I send it anyway.





I had FUN!!

OH shoot, Sorry! I sent already so I didn't think I needed to check in anymore. My bad.

Checking in! I'm out of town for the next few days so I won't be in great communication until I get back on Friday.

The gallery is looking awesome! I can't wait to see it fill up.

Finished everything about 2 minutes ago! All I need to do now is, pictures, pack and send. Definitely be in the mail by tomorrow, then I'm off to spend the week in Montreal! Can't wait to see what happens in the gallery.

I'm not worrying if you don't stick 100% to the 4X4X4 rule. Just something small is all I'm really asking!
Can't wait to see the gallery!

Phew! My item didn't quite work out at 4x4x4 so I had to scale it up slightly, or scrap the whole idea and start over. Starting over was not an option so it's more like 6x6x1.

When the rules of the swap says, "This is a four point swap. You can send more than four points but check with your partner first." I always wonder if I did send more than required and didn't ask my partner if my feed back would be something like, "Horrible swapper! Sent too much awesome stuff! AVOID".

Checking in! I was hunkered down in my apartment yesterday so I was able to get a bunch done! Everything was fine in DC. I've seen more severe thunderstorms. The power was only out for about 45 minutes last night.

Hooray for productive weekends!

Living in DC and preparing for a hurricane right now  Cry . If my electricity goes out (which we're all preparing for), it could severely limit my crafting time this weekend.

Why can't a disruptive hurricane come during the work week and not during my scheduled time off? Grrr, mother nature you ruthless b_ _ c h!

Checking in! Getting some ideas and just waiting to hear back from my partner before I start crafting.

Super excited to get started and send!
