Yay! The tracking says my package from trisarose is out for delivery! Funny, I sent to her after she sent to me and the tracking on that says it was delivered Saturday. I hope she likes it. I can't wait to see what I got from her!

ETS: There is one postie (we don't have a regular)who never rings once, let alone twice. If it doesn't fit in the box, he doesn't bother to knock on the door. Such was the case today. So, I'll be going to pick up my package from trisarose tomorrow!

Yeah, I've never seen our postperson knock, but they usually leave our packages on the porch... I can't wait to see what you guys have made!

I can't wait to see what you folks have made. I love Steampunk, but I have to admit that I was a little scared off by Dieselpunk. I guess I need to see some items to get comfortable with it.

Yay! first pictures! I give you......*insert drumroll* the beauteous package of Calbazza!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



first off, a lovely journal/sketchbook cover with little do-hickeys that keep my pencils in place. I LOVE that its a cover so I can switch it between journals.



Also with my lovely notebook were these pens and pencil sharpener so I had no excuse to not get started writing right away



Awesome, perfectly sized messenger bag, and just to show how perfectly sized it is...



I brought it with me to the glbt pride parade Smiley and a girl actually asked where I got it too!

Thanks Calabaza!!!! Everything is so amazing Smiley I hope you enjoyed mine too!

I will do personal swaps. Cheesy
I have a few skeins of Caron Simply Soft I would love to supply swap with anyone for other types of yarn, I am finding the yarn a tad hard to work with.

I love the decorative dohookies that hold the pencils/pens in place. Great idea. Also love the trim on the messenger bag. Great package.

I'm glad you like what I sent you, trisarose! Incidentally I posted a tutorial for the composition book cover here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=410258.0 It differs a bit from others I've seen.


Okay, now for the truly awesome package trisarose sent me!

First up is a pair of long wished-for fingerless gloves:

I love them! I have wanted fingerless gloves for ages and ages and now I have a fun and wonderful pair of my very, very own.

Next is one of the most perfect jackets I've ever seen, let alone owned:



She made military-insignia-esque covers for the epaulettes. It's awesome for me: more subtly dieselpunky so I can wear it out and about, which I have already!

One of the most challenging parts of this swap for me was that I saw a lot of stuff labeled dieselpunk that looked like stuff in stores now. I don't now if I'm reading that wrong, but I can pick out steampunk much easier than dieselpunk. However trisarose made something I think is wonderfully blatant dieselpunk and suits me to a T:

She said she took a file and hammer to it to age it! How's that for gutsy? It incorporates so many things I like: Black and silver, time-telling devices, Morse code, Russian and symbols. The top word in the Russian poster picture means "workers" I think. Google translate thinks the ones printed sideways mean "take the rifle". Can you tell I'm a beginner  Grin

I don't know if she or the postal service (the box looked like it'd been taken to a stable and trampled on  Angry  ) did the cracked glass but I think it's a great touch!

Thank you so, so much! I love everything, trisarose. And thank you, Alchamy513, for hosting such a fabulous swap!

Sorry I've been a little quiet lately, but I have to say that everything so far is awesome! I love the artwork, and the messenger bag is gorgeous!
