Ok ok - I couldn't stand it any longer. Usually I open presents for birthdays and xmas as I get them, so I've shown (for me) a remarkable amount of restraint...
Here goes  (from Soul Assylum)











I'm really impressed and love all of it. I'd suggested a needlebook, after seeing Kylie's one, and this is lovely. The stitching on this, and the gorgeous and amazing bird is so tidy and perfect. (I'm glad i didn't sew you anything, girl...) Heaps of the stitching is in silver, which looks lovely, and is damn hard to use so tidily.
I also said that I liked buttons - and there are buttons on the bird and in the key ring (which is currently a xmas tree decoration) and the buttons in the resin are so faint that they really look  like the memory of buttons, or something poetic. And the Audrey Hepburn magnets are great - I do like her....

You did a great job, wish my friends (who actually know me) could be so insightful...
Thanks again and what a great first swap for me!

And SA, I have a light-tented photo of one of the things i made you, in case you find it difficult....

First of all, thunderlora, how do you take such good photos??  I try taking closeups and they become all blurry...Im sure there is an obvious answer to this.

ANYWAY.  I opened my pressie from Livmcc (with the help of my paper-loving baby) and got....cute knitted wool chocolate bar in its own knitted wrapper, and some little magnets (same style that thunder got but diff pictures).  I have been wanting to make some of these for ages, and now I think I will, to join the little magnets that liv made me.  Thanks Livmcc!!!!

Pics after xmas... i took some, but a) they suck so will try to take better ones, and b) all my batteries seemed to die while I was trying to upload them...dammit

sounds like good stuff you got there...

i have a light tent - it was $12 on trade me - i need it to be able to take good photos of my jewellery. Shiny silver is just about impossible to photograph without one. It's actually pretty quick to use it, and so nice to be able to do handmade stuff some justice. Then you just use a crappy desklamp or whatever with it. I also have photoshop - but didn't need to use it at all with these.

Really looking forward to seeing everyone else's photos. Hint Hint....

I'm so glad you like them TL.  The birdie and note book cover and magnets are like things from your Etsy Wishlist.
The resin/buttons was meant to be a pendant, I actually thought I sent a chain oops hahaha.  But you can feel free to use it for whatever you like Cheesy

On with the piccies... (thumbnails, so click to see a larger view)



So, I received these 2 awesome things! Cheesy


I got this great mohair lace scarf.  (How do you make this?  Is it knitting?)  I actually just got some matching green streaks in my hair Cheesy hehe


Next I got this cool skull and bone necklace. The skull reminds me of pirates cause of the shape, which is pretty cool cause i'm a POTC (Pirates of The Caribbean) girl Wink


Thanks for the awesome package Cheesy  I love that scarf! Wink

Record purse, (that sadly has a wee crack in it now) measureing tape bracelet, barrel of monkeys badge.
There was also some really cool hairpins but they have decided to hide from me!



Action shot of the bracelet. I seriously never take it off
