Happy Christmas

Here is what I got from CraftyNSassy

I already informed her, but for all of you to know..the images won't be entirely complete because she sent a framed artwork and it was torn and the frame was broken. It was not her fault by any means. She beyond had it wrapped. So we KNOW who to blame Angry (evil post)

Anyway, here is what I got. Thanks again!!!

Pinupmommy received my package a few days ago, so I'll take the liberty of posting pictures. Here's what I sent. Click pictures to make them bigger.


A throw pillow--I made an applique by printing a picture of Jack out on printable fabric in black and white, then I painted and embroidered all the details. The pillow itself is white twill with hand painted black stripes.


A tote bag--Another applique, this time a sketch of the bat boy from the movie (permanent marker on fabric), collaged with hand painted striped fabric, ribbon and distressed white fabric, sewn onto a tote I made with gorgeous black swirly cotton and more hand painted stripes for the handles. Sadly the pictures really don't do it justice.



A Jack and Sally painting on a wooden plaque, with a ribbon hanger on the back. I don't have a great picture of this one unfortunately. Paintings are hard to photograph.


A Jack head stuffie pillow for her young daughter, pretty straightforward. Made with felt.


One of my favorites--a movie inspired stocking. I almost kept this one for myself. My own pattern, made with white cotton and the same swirly black fabric used in the tote bag (hard to see the pattern in the picture, but it's there). The back is black felt.


Last but not least, a printed fabric ornament.


I also sent her a handmade card which I forgot to photograph. I made a popup card featuring the monster wreath from the movie.

Her package arrived yesterday. Here is what she sent me.



A CD case, a wooden jar, a plastic container and a tin all decorated with Jack's face in puff paint, plus a pumpkin barrette (the plastic pumpkin broke off) and a marble magnet.

Great stuff everybody! I just got a message that sweetly_sedated got the items I sent her as well, I'm glad. Unfortunately the pictures I took of the items are on a different computer to which I don't have access to at the moment, or else I would have posted the pictures.

I am almost done with your package! It has taken longer than I anticipated, because I had to plan, shop and craft all over again, after I had already finished a whole package. But I absolutely do not mind crafting for you, you have been a great partner and I only wish I could make my hands go faster!!!

and a hand painted Jack box






Anyways,
I really hope she liked everything!!!

What lovely items you all made. The true spirit of Jack's Christmas. I love the painted Christmas balls and the magnets. The tote is great and the table covering was WOW! So many great things especially the necklace! You all did a great job.

So I finally received my package today! Sweetly sedated sent me a package that was a maxture of crafted goodies and bought stuff.
Picture time!!! (click on the thumbnails to see a bigger format)

So here's a picture of all the items, gift wrapped:

Sweetly sedated was very kind to send some candy with the items, my house smells very sweet now Wink

And the items, unwrapped:

Keychain and two buttons.


Two cool figurines that I'll have to assemble (I took them out of their boxes)


Coasters!!!


a pillow


My personal favourite: a scary teddy bookmark!

I will gift some of the items to my sister, since she is a huge NBC fan, but Scary Teddy will be mine forever Smiley

Allthough I am quite happy with the items that sweetly sedated sent me, I have some mixed feelings about this swap. This was my first swap and my original partner flaked on me. Thankfully sweetly sedated took up the challenge of crafting for me, I am very grateful. Thank you so much!
Hopefully the next swaps will go better.
