Okay guys, I will be giving out positive, on-time feedback for those whose partners have received today. Please post pictures if you have received, you're leaving us all hanging!
Those of you I haven't heard from since the send-out date, shoot me a PM and let me know what's up, communication is key. I know lots of people said they would be late, I just need an estimated send-out date from you.

Since no ones posted pics I'll be the first...see if we can give our gallery a jump start.
Here's what I sent to stoliedina, she said she would like some flapper/art deco style jewelery. So this was my attempt at that.

At the top we have the jewelry box, it says the playful flapper here we see. Then to the left my attempt at art deco style. And some pearls because no flapper jewelry is complete with out a long strand of beads. In the center of that is the matching bracelet. And then a pink and pearl necklace and earrings. I was trying to put a more modern twist on a flapper style necklace I saw on the internet, but it didn't come out the way I planned, lol. And there's a mix CD in it's own tin, on it are some 20's hits. Also behind that are the cards but you can't see them. On the front are movie posters or pictures and on the back are the movie synopsis.
Here's a closer look at the art deco style necklace. Really just the charm reminded me of art deco so I just tried to match the beads up to compliment it.

Okay guys, here's the rundown. The following people's partners have received according to either their partner or USPS:

Sporkx71
Redpopsicles
Clayfaery
Hubbyoed
Lady4feet

The following people I have heard from:
Stoliedina
Fonduie
Fancyshmancy
Girlwonder
Radioactivecrafter
Ratjen37

The following people either said it was mailed and did not provide a DC# or I have not heard from them lately:
Carina

If you are in the first group and do not see positive feedback under your profile, please PM me. The system got all weird when I was putting it through. If you are in the second group your lateness is excused. If you are in the third group, or have a partner in the third group who you have heard from, I need a PM from you within seven days with a DC number. I have only received one DC number for this entire swap guys! If you are in the third group and do not have a DC number PM me and tell me what is going on. If I do not hear from you you will receive negative feedback and be replaced by a swap angel. I promise I'm understanding about whatever is going on guys, I just need to know you're still in this.

IF you see your partner's name in the third group and you have received, please send me a PM and tell me so I can let them off the hook. Thanks.

Yay I received today! I was so excited because it made my slightly crappy day so much better. I'm in love with hat's! So stoliedina made me a very cool flapper hat, the broach on it is beautiful! It fits perfect, I had a pic of me "modeling" it but I deleted it on mistake. She sent me three mix media paper pieces that are awesome. I have to go through my frame collection to find some for them.


She also made me a pretty little purse with the same fabric as the hat. It's so cute! It will fit my phone and wallet perfectly(I checked, lol.)

Yay thanks seaofstars and Nutella for the awesome comments!It's so nice to hear good things about my illustrations. It's what I love doing-and what I'm in school for.

I make the doll first and then use graphics paper that is thick enough with  withstand lots of pressure and erasing and such over top of it to design the outfits over top. the paper is very see-through so it's really easy to use. then I photo copy/print the pages and watercolor them. it's a fun process. I made japanese gothic lolita ones for the subculture swap but no one ever saw them cause my partner was a flaker and never showed them. if I can find pics of those I'll post em too. I'm slightly obsessed with paperdolls actually. I have collected them since I was 7!

For some reason, and it's probably my organization, I still need to know if Fancyschmancy's package ever got to Radioactivecrafter. I also need an update from Carina and Fonduie. Merry Christmas!  Smiley

I've not yet recived. The last I heard she had sent the package but forgot the zip code and was going to resend, that was two weeks ago. I know she has been really late before and still sent and I'm hoping thats the case.
