really, the desk organizers are just decoupaged boxes made of cardboard.  i layered text from an old book with map print tissue and drew the pink accents with an embossing gelly pen. then i coated them with wax. they are simple but i get really carried away with the layers!!! i probably built up like four layers  Grin

glad to hear the love. i will be posting my pictures...maybe tonight since picture hosting is back up!!!

finally pictures for you!!!

these are the awesome marble magnets she made me! the large magnet is wooden and she hand drew all the crafty tools!



this is the awesome embroidered journal that she made. she said that it was her first time embroidering!? it look phenomenal.



and here are some action shots of my new, super awesome apron!!!





artsylydia was an A.W.E.S.O.M.E swapper! thanks for everything sweetie! i hope my pictures show how much i love the things you made me! we can personal swap any time!

What do you mean, "it isn't supposed to explode"?

Definitely impressive for first-time embroidery, and super clever to use the button.  Maybe Craftsters are just naturally gifted first-timers once they have hit a certain number of crafts. Smiley

Crafty, do you have a cheap-and-easy way to do most of your pics in B/W with just the focus in color, or did you do that by hand?  It looks really cool, but the only way I know to do it would not have been fast.

Sticks and stones may break my bones, but sticks and string excite me.

I'm on Ravelry, and now, so are my stash and WIPs.  Makin' progress!

I use photoshop. you can download a trial version. all you do is take your picture and make a duplicate layer of it and desaturate it. that turns the top picture b/w. then you use the magic wand to select the areas you want to cut out of the b/w image. after you cut out all the parts you want the colored image is revealed through the cut outs you made. it's pretty simple once you get the hang of it. thanks for asking!

Noice!  That was not a layer use that had occurred to me- will definitely be using that idea in future- thanks!

No more picture yumminess?  Do we need angels, or are people just being graphically challenged?

There is some definite photo phobia in our group! Sad Next time I'm going to make it a requirement before you get feedback, you must post photos.
Frankly, most of the fun is in swapping is seeing what everyone comes up with!! Smiley Especially in this type of swap.

And here I am- posting pics a little late of what I sent to Balletfreak. I haven't received yet from my partner.

Here's the messenger bag I made for her dance stuff- it holds atleast 16 paperback books cuz that's what I used to stand it up for the picture.

Front view, same bag. I had some major interfacing issues with this bag but I think it came out ok.

I made two little bunnies from a pattern found here on Craftster- one bunny is the "Ballet Bunny" and the other is "Freak Bunny", which you can't seen but one of his eyes is crazy, he's got one ear longer than the other, and crazy fabric.

I alse made her a headband to keep her hair out of her eyes while dancing, and a "dance" bracelet.
