1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Steampunk swap goodies on: September 02, 2008 07:35:23 AM
Wow! I hadn't realised how long ago this swap started, my summer was so ridiculously busy at work it just flew by. On returning from my far too short holiday, I was greeted by the best thing ever! My steampunk swap parcel from Jane Doe  Grin

I'm in the middle of using my remaining holiday to blitz the house tidy so it took me a while to take the photos etc as I accidentally buried them in stuff while I was tidying  Embarrassed

But without further ado, my items:

Firstly, a beautiful ring in wirewrapped brass

A mini brass candlelabra (so cute)

An absolutely fantastic clock made out of an old set of scales (I can't wait to finish tidying so there is space for this in the kitchen  Grin )

and last but not least, a hand felted shrug/bolero in steamy colours that fits perfectly (and will look very nice over my corset or anything else really. Sadly my photo of it is a little fuzzy I just realised  Undecided ah well. You can see how well it fits, although it isn't as dark as the photo suggest.

Note also my rocking crafting/workmans trousers that I picked up while on holiday.  Wink

Anyway, I'm halfway there on finally sorting out the crafting room so must dash again. Thank you Jane Doe for such a wonderful swap!!!

Yay! Thank you for posting them! I love the necklace but my camera was just refusing to do it justice Smiley

I'm looking forward to trying the maple syrup, the bottle it comes in is so cute!  Grin

Angel parcel on its way! I even managed to do a teaser pic, my first ever!  Wink

Sadly, the photos I took of me in the hat were not so good, will see if I can get my DB to take one of me properly as my taking of photos of myself clearly needs work.  Undecided

Well provided my hair stays dry (weather has been very wet this morning) I should be able to model it this evening.

Also time travel tea parties, everyone should have them, they're fun Wink

My camera is being terrible about the photos, so if you have any good ones of the items I missed, do post them Psyche, my photos don't do the items justice.

I ripped open the box before anyone else arrived at work, but restrained myself from a proper opening until I got home.

Scientific stationary! There are some really nice pictures in this, I might have to use these as invites to my next steampunk/time travel tea party Cheesy

A cute top hat with veil, not modeled on me because my hair was wet but it is lovely. I will be wearing this next time I have a corset outing.

A lovely pair of bookmarks and a fantastic set of cog stamps (I could only find my red ink but you get the idea) awesome!

My camera refused to focus on the choker with the double strand of black pearls, which is a shame because it is lovely as well as fitting perfectly. The picture with the mirror in it also refused to come out. Will see if I can try again tomorrow when the light is better.

Also not pictured, bear shaped maple syrup bottle (mmmmm), postcards and cd rom of Canada, and a lucky penny magnet.

Thank you psyche!

And it's lovely. Photos as soon as I'm able!  Grin

I love everything I've seen so far. Cheesy
Almost done with my angel parcel too. This is far too much fun  Roll Eyes

Gosh, I go away for a weekend and everyone is posting such lovely stuff. The embroidered steampunk bag is lovely, as are the goggles and well everything really!

Psyche: I am so glad you liked everything, I enjoyed making it so much I got terrible swap anxiety. My DB made special attempts to get you stamps on the box and was particularly smug that they had the full set of hammer horror stamps Cheesy The other ones are from a series of very cheesy films called Carry On movies.
The tea chest started out life as a simple box with a lid, some judicious chopping and pasting together of drawers was involved to get the hinge action (which is what I really wanted). They had a lovely travelling tea set in the V and A, this is a mere shadow of that one, but hopefully still useful Smiley I've already been told I have to make two for friends of mine...
