I can't wait for my partner to get her box!!  I hope she likes the goodies I made.    

I just checked the tracking and it said it was in my city.  I hope I get it tomorrow!  Now I feel bad about how my box was packed.  But if I had wrapped everything neatly it never would have fit in the box!

OK, I really hope Zemolina doesn't mind but I just have to post the stuff I sent her! I have been busting to share it all and I'm soo proud of the finished pieces.



So, from left to right, top to bottom:
- The total haul
- resin pendants (my art, disney image, my art) - all this resin work was the first batch I ever did, I am sure I'm hooked. Shown on the green packaging and against a white sheet to show their transparency
- Clay figurines from Zemolina's wist, Snow White is about 2 1/2 inches high
- Resin Red Riding Hood pendant on white faux leather chain. My version of her Wist post
- Tiny clay charms - Red Riding Hood, big bad wolf, Snow White's apple, White Rabbit, Alice
- Clay covered mushroom vessel - upcycled from a water bottle lid, covered in clay and filled with little toadstools
- Snow White doll - this is the 'extra' cause to be honest she kinda scared me  Embarrassed. First ever doll, I usually just do plushies but the book I followed was excellent. And she's as anatomically correct as a doll can get  Tongue
- Altered book turned into notebook holder, and notebooks covered in pages. I could never have done this if the book were in good condition but all the pages were falling out to I used it to my advantage
- Hair bands and little house pin from Zemolina's Wist - my knockoff version as I could not find the fabric anywhere so I printed a web image of it out on transfer paper and made them that way, lol. I can't believe it worked  Cheesy
- Original bookmarks using online digital scrapbooking stuff, my own art and quotes from her favourite authors. Cardstock covered in contact
- Pouch set using my most favourite flannel ever! Bright green and red ladybugs *swoon*, lined in bright red and with a matching brooch.
- Gnome applique from Andrea Zulli's amazing pattern, boxy pouch adapted from dragon[knit]fly's great tute, and little pouch free-handed from the boxy pouch techniques.

I'm glad Zemolina is happy, I was pleased at the finishes on everything, I tend to get lazy sometimes and not put a professional finish on the stuff for myself, yet for other people I go to more effort,  Undecided go figure.

Now I'm off to post a few thing's in the other Craftster area to get some feedback... Yay! first swap completed!

I received my parcel from eternallyeve! It is sooo amazing, everything is just so perfect!
WARNING: Crazy ridiculous amount of pictures ahead!!!

Inside! Just looking in here you know its going to be the best swap package ever!


(Almost) everything pulled out (cat trying to sneak into picture):


Cute wee purse/makeup bag


Whats inside? Notebooks!


Now to see whats inside all the other packages:
Resin goodies:


Cute hairties and pin:

The boyfriend asks: hmm, whats this in the red tissue paper?

WOW, I mean would you look at that thing, its amazing! But whats inside?
Mini mushrooms! Sooo cute

But thats not all the polymer clay goodness, oh no Cheesy




I mean, look at the detail in those! The little wolf has teeth!

So now your thinking, wow, what a great package, but thats not all. Nestled in the box was this cutie!

Isn't she adorable???  I wish everyone could see her in real life, she is amaaazing!!
Headshot:

Shoes!!


There were also these great bookmarks which she designed herself, but I couldn't get very good photos of, so hopefully eve has some!

I'm sorry for all the photos, but everything was so perfect and I really wanted to capture the detail.  I love that I got all this stuff which I am absolutely useless at making, the polymer clay stuff, resin. I am sooo happy with my package, thank you so much!!!!

LMAO! We must be on the same wavelength! If mine takes up too much room just pull it down mods  Cheesy.

Sorry Zemolina, how funny is all that?!

I'm so glad you like the doll, I was a little worried about her since she was my first one but I hoped you would give her a good home. She was kind of pleased to be going to New Zealand to be honest, something about being a 'wordly lady' and that she really wanted to see where Lord of The rings was made... a serious fantasy junkie, that one  Cheesy.

I hope the Wist knockoffs suit your expectations... now I'm off to read your pm where you have probably already responded to everything I have posted here  Tongue

Oh my, this swap just never lets us down!!!!  So awesome! 

Allegory, you CERTAINLY had nothing to worry about!!!  I love, love, love the purse, the pillow is awesome and would match my quilt that Athenamat made me ( Grin) that little fairy house is sooo creative and adorable!  You did such a great job on everything! 

EternallyEve, that doll is breathtaking.  She's flawless and I love her!  The little lady bug bag with the gnome on it is super cute and those pendants are so neat!  The book turned notebook holder is really cool too, I'd have never thought of that one!

I LOVE THIS SWAP!

Aww shucks *blush*. All these kind remarks are making me grin like a fool and are giving me a little buzz. I was just saying to Murbeck how we all admire and compliment other Craftster's stuff but we rarely think of our own stuff in the same way. You have all given me a big boost!

And funny you should mention that, I had a great time making gouache and ink drawings for this swap and I have some more pieces in mind. Let me get some ideas together and get over the enourmous amount of party organising I have coming up and I will post some finished stuff. I am always up for a personal swap and it gives me experience in creating 'sale-quality' stuff.

Honestly you guys keep me inspired. I love Murbeck's bag and cuff (that fabric rocks!), Eukarya's book and egg are amazing, Athenamat's quilting skills are awesome (my next quilt plan is just a simple block pattern  Undecided, nothing as great as hers), Thanate's bag is inspired, I envy Spookshowbaby's embroidery, DangitJess's Cerberus is amazing (I want one too  Tongue) and Allegory's fairy house and doggy wings are gorgeous. Without Craftster I would run dry, so compliments from you lovely people warms my heart.

Thank you again
