I figured I'd call it the "Titanic Trio Swap" since there were three of us participating in this. Tongue

I'm at work right now but as soon as I get home I'm going to post photos!

Photos!! I got my package from highschoolcrafter yesterday!! I'm feeling quite spoiled... A couple candies are missing from my package as well... My sister and dad took off with some of them. Wink




This was pretty cool!! You did an awesome job stenciling the words on. I've only stenciled a couple of shirts. I can't imagine how difficult that was with all the itty bitty pieces!

This is my "Oh crap! I forgot to take a picture of everything!" shot. I tried to do sailorish colors. (Forgive the wrap job...it was more for security than anything else... I'm a TERRIBLE gift wrapper!)






These are the three different trunks my sister painted for the swap. (She made me one too...how sweet! Tongue Mine is the one with the dashed lines.)


Inside the top lid my sister included a different quote in each.


These are the bracelets my sister made with Morse code. Each strand says a different thing: "CQD" and "SOS" (calls for help) and "MGY" (Titanic's call letters).






My sister also created necklaces for everyone. They also have all 3 call letters on them that the bracelets do.

I don't have photos of what else I sent... I know i took them, I just can't find them in my photo folders so I will have to take new ones. I sent 1" buttons, a 1-1/2", a set of buttons made with pages from Walter Lord's "A Night To Remember" novel, a pair of earrings made with White Star Line's logo used on their uniform buttons, and a pocket mirror of the grand stair case I made with a photograph I took of the Grand Staircase recreation at the Titanic Exhibit in San Francisco (I, er, snuck it and took it right under the nose of the security camera!)

As part of the swap I got each partner (and myself!) a postcard signed by Titanic book author Lee Merideth, which was awesome to meet him! It was such a kick and a surprise! to meet someone whose book I had and read, and I picked up his new book as well.


I bought a vintage White Star Line uniform cap (complete with authentic WSL buttons!) off of eBay. Obviously it's not Titanic, but WSL ceased to operate in the 1930s so it's still really awesome to have a hat of it.
Here is my dog wearing the hat. This is one of those moments she looks like a baby seal: (poor old girl! she's 12 now)


And, what the heck! I'm a huge dork so may as well prove it with a photo, eh? Here's ME in the hat! Smiley
 I don't even know if I'm wearing it right. Probably not. I don't exactly have a "hat head" anyway. Tongue
