Poor Nostrum's boyfriend got flaked in for the craft for my other swap (and she was organiser! How rude!) I stepped in to angel for her/him and had a blast creating some steampunky/wunderkammer type things for her/him.
The transmogrifier is constructed from an old art box that one of my students was throwing out at the end of the school year.  Lots of bits of brass from old lights and light fittings which came from my local waste recycling place, some old bulbs, a bit of an old broken clock and glue, lots and lots of glue.

There is a battery operated tea light candle inside the base-y bit and it looks really cool (I think) at night.  The art box still slides open to use for storage for the notes they keep as they use the transmogrifier to convert their enemies into whatever they desire.  The mermaid mummy was made from old wire which had been in my vegie patch, some plasticine and some toilet paper. The ray gun was a Ben-10 plastic one that I stole from my son's massive collection, don't tell him he hasn't noticed yet.

I've swapped with SpectrumSparksie once before, so having her as an Angel was awesome. She's a FANTASTIC partner, and I was so lucky to have her angel for me. Smiley  Cheesy

This is amazingly cool! Have you ever seen the show Warehouse 13? These totally look like something they'd have on that show. (And that's a compliment because I only hope someday my craft room looks like the "office" on Warehouse 13.)
