581  Re: IYP 11: the Winter Formal Gallery! in The Swap Gallery by phoenixfiredesigns on: April 04, 2009 08:39:18 PM
Much belated photo, but here's the additional "small" item 1boy1girl1kitty2 sent along after the turtle quilt. Fabric coasters using the same fabrics as the quilt. The package arrived like a week ago but it's been a hectic week. (They came separately because they accidentally jumped out of the first package. Wink )

Aren't they cool? I love the colors (each is unique) and the shape is really neat. It makes my brain hurt thinking of those angles! Grin

Thanks for being a great partner!

Feast Your Eyes sent me an absolutely wonderful therapy pad based off one in my wist. We all saw what happened to the first one (silly dogs!) so not only did she make a second but it's even more lovely and amazing than the first.

Fabric on one side:

Fabric on the other:

Close up of both fabrics and all the chambers she made:

Isn't it pretty colors? I couldn't figure out how to take an action shot by myself, but what it is, is a giant, oversized "beanie" that you can heat up in the microwave. It then drapes perfectly across your shoulders, but unlike the normal little "tube" ones, this reaches your neck and complete shoulders. It's absolutely divine. And so perfect because I have permanent neck damage and it gives me a lot of problems. The normal little tube ones are nice but never enough. You can never cover enough area with them. This is the total solution to the problem and it's so wonderful. All the little chambers are perfect too to ensure that there's an even distribution of heat. (Instead of it all pooling in one part.)

HUGE thanks to Feast Your Eyes for making it for me and for her amazing patience making it twice. It's so beautifully done and is going to be such a benefit to use. Cheesy

When I got home from work tonight, I stopped to check my mail and my package from TheSapphireMoon was waiting for me! Yay!

Group shot!

The best item of the swap is of course the owl tote. Look how cute they are! There's also a cool autumn-leaf floral head wreath, a journal, leaf note pad, leaf emery board, cool fern wallet/id holder, beaded and leaf cell/zipper pull charm, and bird card. There's also a cool mini tree button on the tote but I just realized I didn't get a close-up shot of it.

Bag Close ups!

It's hard to tell from the photos but the bag is a sturdy denim. And the lining is these cute bubbles and stars. It's a very solid bag that feels like it could hold a lot of weight easily. (I can see why you wanted to keep the tote for yourself!) I hope you can tell the awesomeness of the tote from these pics. I had to spread a blanket out on my living room floor to have enough room for a shot but the lighting at night isn't that great.

More Close ups!

Thank you so much, TheSapphireMoon! Everything is really great. Cheesy

So bubblegum_phoenix was a dear. She wanted to send me what I thought was going to just be a little something because of the long delay in the second half of my package to arrive from my partner. Just a little bit of kindness to make my day. Well, she went WAY above and beyond "a little something" and send me a big, beautiful package FULL of total awesomeness. Seriously, I feel beyond spoiled that she'd go to so much trouble. So I absolutely have to show it all off.

Here's the whole package. Can you believe the amazingness of it all? Cross stitch of Jasmine (from Disney's Aladdin), Drinking Chocolate, a mug with mug cozy, a totally cool phoenix pin, a half scarf/neck warmer, a little felt tree, paua shells and an adorable little phoenix ami.

Close ups!

Look at how cool the phoenix pin is! I love it. And you can see the fabric of the half scarf and the handmade clay buttons she made for it as well. Super cool.

And look how cute my phoenix ami is!!

I tried to get a shot to show you all of it but I don't know if you can see the long tail feathers in the back. So cute!

Under the mug warmer she made is a totally cool daffodil mug. They're my favorite flower. And she said she made it to smile which I didn't get at first but then when she said it, now I totally see it. It IS smiling!

The card, felt tree and paua shells:

And Jasmine:

Did you cross stitch her yourself? Holy cow, I'm always in awe of people who can do that. It makes me cross-eyed just thinking about it.

bubblegum_phoenix, I am utterly and completely beyond belief spoiled. So THANK YOU doesn't cut it but thank you. I just smiled so much opening my box and I'm going to definitely enjoy all of your awesome items. It was so sweet of you to put all that together for me. Really, it just made my week. Heck, my month.  So thanks. Cheesy

My OTT came from gerbilgal last night! She used my "penguin" theme and made me a cute little penguin ami!

My little penguin even came with her own bonnet and purse! How cute is that? She's a fashionable little bird. Grin

Thanks gerbilgal!

586  Re: Tree Swap Round 2! FINISHED! in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by phoenixfiredesigns on: March 24, 2009 07:07:40 PM
Here's a shot I took on Saturday at a nature preserve near where I live. Think of it as Spring in Florida!

I took a ton of shots and it seemed appropriate to share at least one tree shot from the bunch since we're all tree fans! Grin

I received my surprise phoenix items from averyg last night! Yay! Of course, I didn't get home from work until almost 9pm, so the pics had to wait until today.

She made a neat cotton phoenix tote bag and a cool phoenix shirt for me. Knowing I liked jewel colors, she found this really lovely purple shirt. It's a great color!

Action shot! (Excuse my apparently filthy bathroom mirror. I didn't realize it was so bad until after I uploaded the shots and I'm too darn tired today to wipe down the mirror and re-take the photo. Heh.)

Thank you so much, averyg! It was a great surprise and I love getting cool and unique things to wear like this. And, since I pretty much live in baby doll tees (I am in Florida afterall!) it's perfect and will get TONS of use. Grin

I'm glad it finally arrived! I just saw so many things on your list and in your wist that I thought would be fun to send, or things I knew I could get for you that I just had a great time gathering supplies! Sometimes new craft supplies are the best thing in the world because they engage the crafty gene and the creativity gets going! Cheesy

Have fun crafting and enjoy!

(And yeah, I couldn't resist the recipe cards. They cracked me up FAR too much not to make some for ya!)

I know. I never stop. But the world has FAR too many beautiful gemstones to ever stop enjoying using them in my jewelry. I don't think I've ever met a gemstone I didn't like. Grin

I received my wristlet and ipod cozy from claire313! It came Saturday but this being me, I was off at WDW for the day and didn't get to check my box until today. Wink

There is a SheepBlue original card (too funny), some tea, and the cool wristlet and ipod Touch cozy!

It's hard to tell in the picture, but it's actually blue and brown - which is a favorite color combo of mine.

Can you believe it was her first zipper? I'm impressed! I still haven't been brave enough to do zippers yet myself. Wink

And the ipod cozy in in very fire-inspired colors to go with my "PhoenixFire" image. Action shot!

Thanks so much, claire313! Both pieces are great. And I look forward to using them. Grin
