3421  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: IYP 11: the Winter Formal Gallery! on: March 04, 2009 08:20:21 AM
Also, Ms. Knickers, I must tell you that Mr. Coo, who is usually fairly ambivalent to swap goodies, was quite impressed with the album. Very high praise, indeed!
Isn't that how Mr's always are though? Mine is typically pretty "eh" bordering on "I don't get it" with swaps for me as well. When he says something is nice, it's like the heavens parted level miracle and it must mean something is superb. Wink

By the way, I sent out 1boy1girl1kitty2's package the same day as another international package to Malaysia and that one arrived, so it surely must be arriving soon. If the one made it around the globe, then hers just to Canada has to be there any moment now. Nervous!!

Ok, instead of taking a shower tonight before bed, I spent about an hour and a half working on what might turn into an item for the swap. It depends on how it comes out. Still...whew! I'm beat. And that means shower in the morning instead. Wink

I finally have a photo of the bird nest earrings I received from phoenixfiredesigns about two weeks ago. Look how pretty--I love them to bits and have worn them every other day since I received them!  Grin Thank you so much, PFD! And now you don't have to flog me.  Cheesy
Yay! I'm so glad you like them. That's what counts. (Though man...the flogger was looking forward to getting some use! Wink Grin )

Here's a generic shot I took before I sent them just as the pair:



Please continue to enjoy and I'm glad I could help replace the pair that you lost.
3424  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Ongoing Wish Swap Round 44 on: March 03, 2009 08:03:26 PM
I know I claimed you once already but....there's some more stuff I think I can send you. So I'm going to claim Mlsocci74 a second time for some wisty inspired surprises.

Claim #2 of 3 / 1 outstanding / 0 in transit /0 received

About Me
Greetings everyone! I'm a 31 year old woman who lives in Florida (USA) with my guy and two cats. My favorite colors are jewel tones like amethyst purple, emerald green, ruby red, sapphire blue, turquoise, and amber. I like silver but not really gold. (Copper's ok too.) My favorite color combination is a deep teal blue and chocolate brown together. It makes me happy. I also love things that go along with my "PhoenixFire" theme like reds/oranges/yellows together. My favorite animals are cats, owls, penguins, bats and red foxes. I love to read, I enjoy photography and I love all things Disney!

ALLERGIES
I suffer from migraines so please NOTHING musk/amber/patchouli/dragon's blood or floral scented. Unless it smells like you can eat it, it will give me a migraine. I LOVE fruit and dessert scents greatly though. Also, please no bar soaps (skin is sensitive to glycerin) and nothing with artificial sweeteners like NutraSweet (aspartame) or Splenda (sucralose) as I'm allergic to both.


Crafts
*big wish* -- A robe like this one. It's just so lovely and I desperately need a robe. (3/4 length or long-sleeves, and mid-length overall. Not too short, not too long. I wear a US size 4 and can send measurements if needed.)

*big wish* -- A migraine therapy kit like this and/or neck/shoulder/back therapy pad like this. I have had migraines for more than 15 years and this kind of thing DOES help. I also have permanant damage to my neck (which often triggers migraines) and it causes pain in my neck AND shoulders so the neck/shoulders/back pack would be a lifesaver.

*big wish* -- A tote like this one. I love and covet everything about it from the colors, fabric to the pattern.

*big wish* -- This scarf in these exact colors. I think this is one of the most perfect things ever. I don't really need scarves as a rule because I live in Florida, but I'd find reasons to wear one like this!

*big wish* -- An apron like this or this  or like this especially if it were in teal blue and chocolate brown colors. (Or used like cute owl fabric or such.) I wear a US size 4 or can send measurements if need be.

*big wish* -- A Slanket! I almost bought a "snuggie" but the fabric was icky. (It was like thin felt.) I want soft, awesome microfiber fleece stuff, you know? Something long enough to cover my toes as well. I'm forever using a blanket on the couch so this would come in hand GREATLY.

*big wish* -- An Autumn Leaf Barrette. I miss autumn since we don't get leaves changing colors here in Florida.

 -- An ipod touch cozy - I love this style and the soft fleece interior.  thanks to smacckk for one, but I wouldn't mind having more than one to switch it up - like purses!

 -- Anything with a phoenix on it. I LOVE the phoenix and there's not nearly enough phoenix-related things in the world or my life. You can check out my wisted phoenix items here as inspiration.

 -- A weekender bag like Amy Butler's style. There are some tips here as well. It could be in different fabrics though. (Maybe brown/blue?) It's just too challenging of a project for me!

 -- Something stained glass - sun catcher, glass mosaic item, etc. I just love stained glass and wouldn't even know where to begin making it myself.

 -- Hand knit socks. Something warm and soft (no wool please because it itches me) I've got small feet so like a 6.5 size foot or girl's sized large socks for reference. (HUGE bonus if it's argyle pattern. I don't know why but I love argyle.)

 -- Yoga pants! (examples: like this or this) Roomy, 3/4 length or floor length (30" inseam) comfy, soft, cottony, not too tight on the waist. I lounge in them on my days off and I just love 'em. (US size 4 short length or I can send measurements if need be)
 
-- A small purse/wristlet like this one.

 -- Something ceramic/pottery or vase or whatever. Again, a skill I don't have but love.

 -- Things for my apartment in Teal Blue and Chocolate Brown. I love these colors together. And I'd love something in them for the home. A quilt or throw; art; kitchen accessories; pillows; curtains, etc., etc.

 -- Wrist warmers in this pattern. It's just utterly cool.

 -- Disney stuff. Be it characters (like Mickey, Figment, Belle, Mike & Sulley, etc.) or movies (The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Monster's Inc., Lady and the Tramp, etc.) or the parks (I live near WDW but I've never been to Disneyland), or historical stuff (books on Walt or the making of the parks, etc.), or things I can use/take to/wear about any of the above, I LOVE DISNEY. So by all means, get creative! Grin

 -- Something (surprise me!) incorporating owls, penguins, bats, cats or red foxes. They're my favorite animals.

 -- Fused glass, glass (microscope) slide or resin pendants you think I'd like.

 -- A ribbon organizer. Doesn't have to be this fabric. It's more the idea and the style of storage that I like here. Chocolate/Teal color combo would be great as would fun/cute fabric or prints (like owls or something.)

 -- A cool fitted tee like this one or this kinda thing or maybe like this too. I love the color and look of both of these. I wear a US size 4 or typically a size small. I pretty much live in baby doll/fitted tees.

 -- Surprise me! Look at my wists or my wishlist, or the colors I like and see what you can make that you think I'd like.


Craft Supplies
 
-- Sewing stuff: Rotary cutter and/or self-healing board for sewing. Fabricgasm! I'm a new sewer so I covet fabrics now. And/or Sewing notions, tools or other helpful stuff a newbie sewer would need/covet/want/drool over. (Threads, buttons, snaps, etc.)

 -- The Softies Kit. I think it'd be fun to have an all-in-one kit to learn to make cute plush.

 -- Complete Guide To Sewing Book in either this new edition or this older edition. I'm still a very novice sewer who could make use of a reference book like this. (Especially since no one I know locally sews!)

 -- Starter resin kit/supplies (resin, molds, etc.)

 -- Starter rubber stamp carving stuff. (Maybe a kit or items like tools, the rubber to carve into, how-to/instructions, etc.)

 -- Gemstones and gemstone beads. In every shape, size and color. Donuts, cabs, chips - anything! I LOVE working with gemstones and I can never, ever have enough.

 -- Lampwork beads.

 -- Beading supplies. I create jewelry so I'm always looking for unique and interesting pendants, charms, gemstone beads, large focal beads and such. Also, I love Swarovski crystal, unique clasps or toggles, and jewelry wire in 16 gauge and 24 gauge in any color. Gemstone chips are awesome as well since I make Tree of Life pendants with them.


Extras
-- Tea! Especially fruity ones.

 -- Chocolate! (white, milk or dark) No coconut please.

 -- Candies! (whatever neat little treats you enjoy, send 'em my way. I love candy)

 -- Sewing magazines. (especially things geared towards newbies)

 -- Beading magazines (esp ones with projects/tutorials)



Thanks in advance to whomever picks me! Grin
3425  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: One Tiny Thing 21 (OTT 21) :: Sign-up Mar 1-6 :: Send Mar 31 on: March 03, 2009 01:49:49 PM
Oh why does another OTT have to tempt me? I love OTT thing swaps and the last round with smacckk was great. If I sign up, I'm technically full then (it'll be #5) but two of those are done and just waiting to be received so they don't really count as "active."

*hems*

I probably will wind up signing up again just because they're too fun.
3426  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: IYP 11: the Winter Formal Gallery! on: March 03, 2009 01:32:01 PM
There's so much awesome stuff in this swap. I can't possibly comment on it all. Such creativity! Grin

Man, I'm super nervous about my package to 1boy1girl1kitty2 now. I hope it's enough and that she likes it all!
3427  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Tree Swap Round 2! FINISHED! on: March 02, 2009 08:35:47 PM
One item completed! Grin
3428  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Ongoing Wish Swap Round 43 Gallery on: March 02, 2009 06:40:07 PM
Cool! And it's Mike Wazowski! Grin Grin
3429  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Ongoing Wish Swap Round 44 on: March 02, 2009 03:11:12 PM
I'm claiming Mlsocci74 for a Tree of Life pendant from her wist.

First claim this round (1/3) / 0 outstanding / 0 in transit / 0 received

Hello all! I'm in at work (boring, slow, typical Sunday morning) so I'm finally getting a chance to catch-up, stalk and ponder. No crafting until later on this afternoon or tomorrow, but still! Gotta put my time to SOME use since I'm stuck here with nothing to do. Cheesy
