Been crafting all day today on the couch and made some serious headway. I always feel like there is never enough I can put in a swap box!

Also had to include another teaser for Luvebuggy99!

I love that apron and the tea towel. Makes me wish for the Leave It To Beaver days. And also, I love that photobucket censored all his wonderful fireman-ness Smiley Corchet is so offensive, huh?  Roll Eyes

I finally got off my butt and took some photos, and after reading through all your posts, I feel so little. I'm not married, I don't have kids, and even though I'm earning an Acting degree, I definitely have never been to art school. I best get working on that.

In the mean time, here's the awesome package I received from SevsOnlyGirl:

First, this goofy sleeping mask that I saw at Michael's and thought I should have it. But Sevs seemed to have read my mind!

The mask was included in this HUGE box of beauty things. It smelled wonderful when I opened it.

As you can see, the box was simply chock FULL of cool stuff. There were a ton of soaps, in coffee, peppermint, comfrey, alfalfa and my favorite, green apple, a lemon lotion bar, and four awesome lip balms in chocolate, peppermint, milk/honey/oatmeal and my favorite orange smoothie! YUM. And lest we not forget the awesome crochet scrubbie. My first craft ever was crochet, so I have a fondness.

A sweet gun painting I'm going to have to find a place for Smiley

Some summery fabric that she said I would find something for. I'm still thinking!

Cookie cutters! This one puzzled me a bit, but then I figured she meant for it to be a Christmas in July thing and it made me smile. As soon as I'm done with this post, I'm making some Christmas cookies to cheer the best friend up. He wrecked his car today and I think he's going to need some cookies Sad

An awesome tote bag. I adore tote bags!

A closer look at the fabric. Frogs Smiley

These are definitely one of my favorite parts of the whole package! HP Pjs! This is the sign that hangs outside the Leaky Cauldron, and even though the counter is covering it, the shorts have the same bar design on them.

I love penguins, and Sevs obviously picked up on that. I love this shirt and I can't wait to wear it out. Can you believe she did all this painting without a stencil? Amazing.

I approve.

YAY! The cutest little penguin candy dispenser. My best friend helped with the whole eating of candy part  Roll Eyes Oh, and the wings totally flap. Be jealous.

She also sent some chocolates, but being in AZ, the definitely melted before getting all the way here Sad

THANK YOU SO MUCH SEVSONLYGIRL. You had absolutely no reason to worry about not sending enough great and amazing things. I love it all.

Okay I don't know how many of you are avid knitters like I am, but while surfing aimlessly tonight I stumbled across this:

AND get this, it comes with a FREE (I know, I almost died too) pattern! How cool is this?

If anyone is interested, the link for the pattern PDF can be found here:

Hey all- I guess I'll be the first to post pics of the goodies that JessJezzz sent to me!

Here's a full shot of the tote bag. I'm adding a snap/ button to it so it closes though Smiley I love the materials she used because they feel so amazing together and I love plaid linings. Yay!

And machine embroidered on it is Audrey, my only love in life.

Here's a full shot of the pillowcase she sent me, also embroidered on machine (I believe so at least!)

Here's an attempt at getting a shot at the words on it, but it was difficult because the thread was so light. It says "My appetite for conciousness is slowly leaving me", which is a lyrics from a song by my favorite local band, the raintree (which, if you love coffee house music full of love and peace, you should check out at myspace.com/theraintree Cheesy)

She also sent a Chinese paper lantern type of thing but it got crushed in the box and arrived broken Sad. Yeah, it was a sad moment.

I love everything that you sent Jess! I hope you love your items!

Omg, I would adore this. I was in a production of Suessical a few years back and I was a who. Since we lacked many a male performer, I was turned into a guy. I loved it, and I am craving this swap now!

Just for fun:

Man Who (I'm the one with the seriously dark eyebrows in front)

And me as a woman (aka good lookin' Smiley):

7  Yet another irksome beret question post. in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by stitch and stones on: December 09, 2007 12:27:02 AM
Hello all.

So, while completing all of my Christmas crafting, I started surfing (and lusting) for things to add to my list. While browsing the Urban Outfitters website, I came upon this beautiful slouchy beret made from chunky acrylic and is reversible. As you can imagine, I instantly fell in love. However, I did what all craftster hates to do and looked at the price. I am not willing to shell out 28 dollars for something that looks so simple.

From the pictures, I can see it's just a simple k1p1 rib. And I'm guessing it's also double knit to make it reversible.

However, seeing as I've only done scarves, simple hats and attempted a top down raglan, I'm lost as to how the increasing for knitting this would go, especially with ribbing. I've been looking all over for a pattern similar to this to give me an idea, but it still baffles me. Does anyone have any ideas on how to achieve this?

Obviously, I think for the nicer effect, a chunky, uneven yarn would work best to give it some character. What would you all recommend for this?

Lastly, I wouldn't want to add a band for this, just because I love how it looks without. Would elasticity be an issue? I know the ribbing would give some stretch, but I just don't know how much.

Any help you all can give me is so appreciated, especially if you all are taking time out of your holiday crafting to help little ol' me. Thanks in advance!

Wow- I mailed today and recieved. Instant gratification  Grin fluffysam sent some amazing things.

Unfortunately, I was too excited to open everything to get pics of that, but I can say everything was wrapped in cute tissue paper which made it all the more fun to wait for what's inside.

Here's the whole shebang:

Firstly, bracelets that glow in the dark (which I still need to try out). Every item came with playing card tags.

Then some awesome buttons to go on my purse and magnets to slap on the fridge.

Envying her sewing skills because of this, but I love the red courdory wristlet she made me. And it's got a cute card person on it Smiley

And the inside liningis my style- I love it!

And finally, my favorite thing ever....

What is this?... A tulip from the enchanted garden?

NO! It's an umbrella bird!

And we've almost been through a lifetime together. We've contemplated all of life's big questions together:

We've been silly:

And fallen in love (kind of...):

Even the boyfriend had tons of fun with him:

Thanks for organizing this chimerix! and to fluffysam for making amazing things. you are a great first swapper.

10  Take Me To College (Amigurumi Dolls) in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by stitch and stones on: July 28, 2007 02:15:01 PM
Hello all. This is actually my first ever craft post, so be gentle Smiley

For a while now, I've known that my boyfriend of almost two years and I were going to be attending two seperate colleges, about an hour and a half's drive away. I know, I know.... it's not terrible, but when coming from seeing each other constantly, and living a mere 3 miles apart, it is torture.

So, after joking back and forth about taking me with him, I decided I needed a way that he could. And thus mini versions of us were born!

Little me with him (awwwww....)

Little him with me. This little guy was finished five minutes before he arrived, so it's not the best, meaning you can kind of see the stuffing in him. Oh well, his was the one I really wanted to do well on.

And just for fun:

Thanks for looking!
