Thank you. I made these for a craft fair and they did not sell. Wrong market! So, I wanted them to have a home where they would be appreciated and crafting steampunk crazies was the best place!

Enjoy.

There is a tutorial for making these, they really are pretty easy:

Great tutorial and beautiful cuffs. I never thought to paint lace and fabric like that. What a transformation.

Be it known, Cmarion3 is a spoiler. And, that suits me just fine.

I know right - we are so lucky  Cheesy

My beautiful cuff arrived a couple of days ago but the main part hadn't arrived until yesterday. Both are gorgeous and absolutely stunning - cmarion3 you have crazy steampunk skills!! I totally love both of them. Crafts - you described the cuffs so well I am not even going to try  Cheesy The cute little hatbox is a beautifully crafted item all in it's own right! And apologies for the quality of my pics - they are from my phone and crappy  Undecided



And I also got the most wondrous dressform ornament from Craftsunderground. I always love swapping with crafts - her items are amazing!!



And last but not least a sneaky extra from Harvey (gorgeous) and my steampunk ornaments on a hanging candle stand I have repurposed for the occasion - I am still working on my proper 'tree'!!

I received my last ornament from Harvey. A sweet little dirigible medallion edged in copper. Looks yummy on our tree. The finish has just enough gloss to gleam with the tree lights. Thank you!



And a vanity pic of the top hat ornaments. I made these after a crafting failure on my first idea. So I fell back on something I knew I could do. I made one for myself, but ruined it with a glue gun mishap. I'm lucky anyone got an ornament this year! The gremlins were at work.

Finally got access to the computer I need for photos! Tongue

Here are the rest of my ornaments: Shocked

From cmarion3 I got a beautiful topper and a very pretty hat box and a steampunk cuff (which I have already worn and been complimented on).



From Craftsunderground I got a gorgeous dress form.


This has been a great swap and all of my partners have sent me fantastic ornaments which I am looking forward to bringing out every year. Thank you so much. Kiss Grin

Oops you switched the givers. I sent the top hat and the cuff, Craftsunderground the little dressform cork angel. I don't really mind, as I like getting credit for things I have not made Cheesy Cheesy but I guess we should be accurate. I am glad you liked all of them, whether from me or not! Shocked Shocked

Hasn't this been a great swap?

My biggest boo-boo was crafting mug rugs targeted perfectly to my partners....then mixing them up when I sent them! They loved them anyway.  Grin Grin

I'm glad you like the cuff. I was disappointed that they did not sell at our craft fair, but now they are appreciated!
