I received the most amazing package from ilovesnails yesterday! We have different tastes in metal so it was cool sharing some of my favourite bands with her and she used my faves in very crafty ways!! Thanks for everything ilovesnails Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

She made this amazingly soft bag:



It has the word "foresaken" on it which is my all time favourite song by As I Lay Dying



Surprise Strawberry Shortcake on the inside!



This one left me absolutely speechless I feel so honoured to have something made with such detail and talent



Her name is Mel (short for melancholy) and it's an interpretation of Poison the Well's (again an all-time fave.) A Wish For Wings that Work



And a change of clothes for Mel



Some wicked stationery which is ultra good because I study journalism and am always writing away in a notebook



Close up of the giant pencil <3 the skulls



Some fun patches (I especially love the woman's face)



Skull coin purse



And what's inside...?



PINS! of the bands I told ilovesnails I love!!! The I Hate Sally one is my fave. because they are the band that got me into Toronto's hardcore scene (also have a female vocalist! I'm sad they are no longer together)



Everything is so amazing and I was having a horrible sick day yesterday and getting this package just perked me back up. I love how she incorporated all of my beloved bands. Thanks for everything!

i love personal swaps. i'm looking to swap my art or paper crafts for some re-usable fabric snack bags, fabric sandwich wraps, fabric paper towels, glass pendants, ephemera, or art books.

Glad to have brought a smile to your face. Thanks for all the nice things yousaid about Mel. I only taught myself to crochet off the net back in Feb as a way to keep my hands busy in the hospital while staying with my son.

Wow!  I wouldn't have guessed you're a semi-noob at crochet! I've crocheted for years and would never fathom attempting a doll. Great job!

When I checked the DC number for my package this morning I was so excited because it arrived in Dorkariffic's town!  But when I checked this afternoon it said it was being returned because it was "undeliverable as addressed" Huh Angry.  So I guess I'll get it back and send it again, grrr...

Here's a teaser though, I posted it already in the original thread for the swap, but I guess it probably should have gone here:


Also, everyone else's packages are awesome!  I am definitely inspired by some of these projects!
