Woo! Lyle got here today. I figured he might want some fresh air after being in an envelope for a while, so I brought him outside to see the flowers.  :D



Title: Re: Little Visitor Swap Round 6 GALLERY

pretty flowers and lyle is TOO cute!!!

That was fast!  He sure IS a cutie! :)

Yay, I'm sure Lyle is glad to be outside, it has been a long cold winter! (The postal outpost across from my house has a magically fast priority mail service for items shipped on saturday - stuff tends to arrive across the country on monday morning  :D )

awwww, hello Lyle!

Post by: kitty1256 on March 14, 2007 09:43:21 AM
Please be sure to PM me when you recieve your visitors and when you send back the contracts as well (and when you recieve the signed contracts back from your partners)...This thread is going to get big and I can't scroll through it all to find out who has sent and recieved.

Thanks!

Oh, and by the way, you DO NOT need to get a DC number for the contracts...I know you will have to pay a lot more for shipping if you do, so don't worry about it.

Magenta arrived today!!  I took her out for some fresh air.  It's a little chilly today. I may have to find her something to put over her bathing suit. ;D





Title: Re: Little Visitor Swap Round 6 GALLERY
Post by: kitty1256 on March 16, 2007 12:30:08 PM
Yay!  I'm glad she made it there!! Can't wait for Manu to get here!

I am patiently awaiting george... not in the mail today... soon


Title: Re: Little Visitor Swap Round 6 GALLERY
Post by: annacharlotte on March 16, 2007 03:38:22 PM
Oh, it looks like the visitors are having fun already!  I wish I had flowers to show my visitor....alas, all we have here is gunky, half-melted snow crust. 

Leila headed off today.  I felt sad folding her into her box....she looked a little nervous.  I have to say I was laughing about everyone feeling bad as they sealed their critters up in envelopes, but it really was an emotional moment...what can I say?


Title: Re: Little Visitor Swap Round 6 GALLERY
Post by: ptarmic wumpus on March 16, 2007 06:16:39 PM
Lucy arrived safe today! She has been chilling on the sofa with my kitties:



This weekend we'll try to see a bit of town - it is too early to go up into the mountains, until Lucy adjusts to the altitude.


Title: Re: Little Visitor Swap Round 6 GALLERY
Post by: Tygir on March 16, 2007 07:18:00 PM
oo goodie I'm glad she got there safe.
So yeah, my plan for this weekend is shot... yesterday I was walking around in a t-shirt and sandals ( 75 degrees F ) and today it snowed 5 inches! I guess me and Lyle can build a snowman....


Title: Re: Little Visitor Swap Round 6 GALLERY
Post by: PinFish on March 17, 2007 09:09:22 AM
Guess who arrived, safe and sound!
Yep, it's Naga! He's the cutest. He's already made fast friends with my Pullip, Daciana.

He met my cats, too, but they wouldn't stop sniffing him so the pics aren't the greatest, haha. I'd have taken him outside but it's a bit damp and chilly yet! Come on snow, MELT!

Also, Lenny is on his way to NC! Hope he gets there safe! He wasn't at all nervous to go, though he sulked a bit about having to get all sealed in a box. But he's very excited!


Title: Re: Little Visitor Swap Round 6 GALLERY
Post by: ellie.henry on March 17, 2007 10:56:15 AM

I love Daciana, she is precious... and Naga is  pretty sweet too!!

"bookmark" the page, then. We try to discourage the whole "lurk" thing, because you can easily bookmark the page and check that link! :D

ahh! cute pics :) i can't wait to get my little visitor -- sadly, my partner is snowed in! 


Title: Re: Little Visitor Swap Round 6 GALLERY
Post by: uluru on March 18, 2007 07:41:44 AM
Meekins arrived yesterday! Yay! No pics yet as I've lost my camera wire! Grr!

He's settling in nicely though, I've got him lots of leaflets to read about Bath and England, and we've been for a dog walk and done some crafting!




Title: Re: Little Visitor Swap Round 6 GALLERY
Post by: raina.storms on March 18, 2007 07:46:29 AM
I can't wait to get my visitor either! Hopefully Cali will arrive tomorrow. :)  I've already got some things I'm planning to make for her. ;D

Post by: vanillaxlight on March 19, 2007 08:12:36 AM
Leons here! I was thinking he wouldn't get here until later, but man... UPS was on the ball! Right now we're just hangin out, watching Mythbusters



Title: Re: Little Visitor Swap Round 6 GALLERY
Post by: annacharlotte on March 19, 2007 08:56:03 AM
He looks like he's having a ball!  I love his vest. 

I'm hoping Claudine and Naga can meet once Claudine gets here.  Dragons and monkeys?  Hmm...what does the Chinese Zodiac have to say about their compatibility?  I hope he doesn't eat her.

Hehe, I'm not too worried! Naga is very mild-mannered, he hasn't threatened to eat anyone in my house. He's a sweetie. He's very young, too, so I don't know that he'd even be able to eat a whole monkey!

I received Saturday morning, and boy was Reggie surprised to see snow. I guess after living in Dallas, Texas, snow isn't something you see every day. He did, however, help shovel. [I have pictures of this, but I'm in school at the moment.]


Title: Re: Little Visitor Swap Round 6 GALLERY
Post by: serialcrafter on March 19, 2007 10:59:26 AM
You got Reggie to shovel snow! :o

I can't even get him to help pull weeds in the garden.

I'm really hoping Bella gets here today so she can keep me company on my road trip to Houston tomorrow.  Just for one night, but lots of pretty scenery along the way.


Title: Re: Little Visitor Swap Round 6 GALLERY
Post by: serialcrafter on March 19, 2007 12:18:25 PM
Bella has arrived, just in time to keep me company on a road trip to Houston tomorrow!

She was so happy to disembark from her travels.  She couldn't believe the flowers that were blooming in TX!  She even did a high kick!


She also ran into a few of her friends from the future.  She's already making herself right at home!


Title: Re: Little Visitor Swap Round 6 GALLERY
Post by: kitty1256 on March 19, 2007 12:23:40 PM
Manu got here today...just in time for me to take him to class.  Poor little fellow.  I will hopefully post a picture of his arrival later tonight when I get out of rehearsal.

Lenny Arrived today (IMG Heavy)
He arrived just after the fire at one of our neighbors apartment.  He will be helping in the fund raising efforts.

He seemed to enjoy crafting with the kids, and he loves the warm weather.

Here he is watching TV with the baby and Jack the dead bunny



His new friend Duncan (age 4) He will be turning 5 during Lenny's visit



His new Friend Katie (Age 3)



Hanging out with friends from the World Destroyer Academy




And making himself at home on the altar

Lots of arrivals today! Lenny is so cute on everyone's head. :D
Dragonslair I'm sorry to hear about your neighbors fire! :-\  I hope everyone's okay.

Cali arrived today as well--about 2 hours ago! She was very eager to get outside for some fresh air.


 
Hanging out in a tree.                                           And she even took time to sniff a flower! :)

Claudette is here!  I can't believe she got here so fast.  Here she is unwinding on my meditiation cushion.  And I do mean unwinding...you should see the size of the box she arrived in!  I feel better that I'm not the only one who tried to save on postage by squishing my poor stuffy in a tiny box!   :D

When I got home from school, there was poor little Shmoopy waiting under the bushes. To avoid any futher leg cramps and suffocation, I opened the box and let the little guy out.

He seemed ok, so I took him outside to meet him new environment.

The cactus scared him a little so I brung him back inside to surf craftster with me. Don't worry sarahpanda, I'll care for Shmoopy like he was my own.

hah! dragonslair, what is it about octopi on peoples heads?! When I posted my introduction picture of francine, she was on my head!


Title: Re: Little Visitor Swap Round 6 GALLERY
Post by: ellie.henry on March 19, 2007 05:51:09 PM
Well George is here, and I know I have gotten myself in deep this time!
George is on parol, and has a few court orders under his belt... he likes to build bombs and try to take over the world... ohhh well.

When he got here we surfed craftster and look at his mom's profile. He missed her.... a little.



Now I know he is quite the bunny but... I left him alone for like 2 seconds and he was already trying to cut up my knitting to make a string bomb...whatever that is!



When I was taking a shower he got into some business too. I am a hair stylist, I mean...there are things in my house.

Well... as you can see George gave himself a new do. He is a hardcore punk bunny now...with his Blue and Orange highlights!

Manu got here today!!!  We had to go to school as soon as he got here, though, and the profs wouldn't let dogs in, so he had to sneak in in my backpack.

Ohhh, man! You guys are setting the ball so high! Awesome pics and stories - I'm loving it, even if my husband does think I'm crazy!  ;D

Can't wait for my visitor from down under! (Huh, never thought about it before, but that sounds kinda dirty...)

Reggie looks like he's having lots of fun with his new friends!  Give him a big kiss from me! :-*

Bella has already told me a couple of her jokes.  Can't print or repeat any of them, but they were REALLY funny! :o

Post by: sarahpanda on March 20, 2007 06:38:37 AM
Raquel, Shmoopy looks SO relieved to get out of that box. I think he was just tired and shocked by the sun. Your stuffy has arrived but I didn't get the notice that he (she?) is at the rental office until last night when they were already closed. So I will get the parcel after work today! Yay! I'm so excited!


Title: Re: Little Visitor Swap Round 6 GALLERY
Post by: janeausten on March 20, 2007 07:39:03 AM
Oh look at Manu in the backpack :-*.  I hope he was good in class. He gets excited sometimes.


Magenta and i have been having lots of fun.  She has been to work with me a few times, out to eat, learned to crochet and seen some of the sites in our big backyard.

jelly the mouse has arrived here for his two-day layover!  :D  somehow my info got mixed up with catsjewelry's, and smashergrl's stuffie made it to portland instead of of illinois!

fortunately, jelly is taking it in stride -- although he wishes it wasn't so rainy so he could go outside and see the sights.

something weird was going on with my camera last night (i hope the flash isn't broken!  :-\) but here's a blurry pic of jelly hanging out with his new friend, moses:

Lucy came to work with me today and had all kinds of adventures!  The nice outreach office lady thought Lucy was very cute, and gave her a whole bunch of souveniers too.

Here she is helping to give the weather briefing (the graphics are projected onto a screen, so the briefing room is dark):


The security guard was hanging around in the lobby, so Lucy didn't get to play in the cloud vat - I told her she could come back another day  ;)

Francine is settling down and trying to get acquainted with everyone in the house.  Everyone loves Francine.....except maybe Duchess.  Francine tried her best but the Duchess just wasn't impressed...I've explained to Francine that Duchy can be very moody.  Maybe she'll try to win her over again later.

Manu and I were watching Citizen Kane yesterday!  I am working on watching the American Film Institute's Top 100 movies of the past 100 years...and Citizen Kane just happens to be #1...I'm sure Manu will end up watching lots of movies with me while he is here.  =)

last night jelly decided to hang out on the bookshelf with some other stuffies:



but i told him he should probably take a nap so that he'll be well-rested when he meets his host ;)



then this morning, i sent him on his way to catsjewelry!  :)

when i got home this afternoon i found eugene, the most fabulous viking narwhal i have ever seen!  :D  i took him outside to enjoy the last few hours of sunshine, especially since it's supposed to rain tomorrow.  marylou checked out his horn (tusk?) that broke in transit and proclaimed, "it can be fixed!"



now that his "surgery" has been completed, he's recuperating in the basket i keep by the door with his own stuffie to keep him company, so that he'll be ready to tag along with me later this evening!  ;D



sorry for the picture explosion -- i'm a tad bit excited  :D

We took Lenny out tonight and got him pierced..  PinFish started it when she said she was getting Naga tattooed.  I was surprised how into piercing the octopus the guys at Hardwire seemed to be.  The even wanted to call the boss just to hear his reaction to the question                 

" How much to pierce a stuffed octopus? "

can anyone say nipple ring!?


Title: Re: Little Visitor Swap Round 6 GALLERY
Post by: dragonslair on March 21, 2007 06:36:15 PM
Normally $10.00 for the jewelery and $40.00 for the piercing.  BUT  My SO (Naga Besar) knows a guy there and he did it for the cost of the stainless 12 gauge surgical steel ring.  Yes it is a REAL body piercing ring, done at a licensed Body Piercing shop.

Post by: annacharlotte on March 21, 2007 07:09:05 PM
That octopus piercing is hilarious!  I second the disbelief, but share in the enjoyment.  Poor Claudette is so annoyed with me.  I've been working nonstop at the battered women's shelter, then teaching in the evenings!  All I've done so far is give her a beer (local), and have her help me make dinner.  Hopefully this weekend we'll get out on the town.

You have to understand we just didn't walk into just any old piercing shop.  My SO happens to be the regular cabdriver for one of the Tattoo artists there, so he went in to ask him specifically.  It just happenned that another artist (the one in the picture) thought it was cool enough to actually do.

Meekins and I haven't done anything that cool yet. I have a project due tomorrow and have been frantically typing since Mon to get it done (yes, I know, what am I doing on Craftster??).

Hopefully we'll get to have some fun at the weekend too!!

Ps: Has Ski arrived yet? I'm beginning to worry she's got lost in the post :-[.

No sign of Suki yet...:-[.  I am keeping my fingers crossed that she gets here by Saturday afternoon as the BF and I are going to a "Dress Up As Your Favorite 80s Cartoon Character" Party and I would love to bring her along.

I was thinking of going as My Little Pony, assuming I can find the necessary props today at the mall.  Strawberry Shortcake/Rainbow Bright may have to be the backup plan. I have no idea what the BF is planning, but I will be sure to post pictures when the time comes.

Bella the robot came to visit me at a great time.  I normally don't travel this much, but ended up having 3 trips for work in this 6 week period.  Bella will get to see a whole lot of Texas and one surprise location (hint: one of the great tourist spots in America).  I'm so lucky to have her company on these trips!

Sounds amazing- Suki would love it, I'm sure!! Don't know that there are any 80's cartoon rabbits though-maybe in America?- so perhaps she may have to stay in your handbag or pocket. She really is tiny though- I bet she'll fit!

Hoping she gets there soon! x

Ps: Meekins and I are off out on the town tonight, to celebrate the end of my Project and the start of the weekend! Yippee!

I was so relieved to hear Leila arrived safely.  I was starting to get a little worried-mommy feeling.  Claudette and I just got back from a motorcycle show, where I asked a Harley guy if  I could take a photo of her with his bike.  Much to my boyfriend's chagrin...  He's coming around to it now, though.  He even had some ideas for  future monkey plans.  That's why I love him.   :D

It is cold and rainy today - which is *very* unusual (actually, I don't think it has rained for a whole day since I moved here 18 months ago) - so Lucy and I went and visited the tea factory in town. They don't let you take pics on the factory tour, but you can drink free tea and see their collection of teapots and art. Plus there is a gift shop full of discount tea and paraphenalia  :)



Tomorrow should be back to the usual sunny conditions, so we might go down to Boulder Creek and see the fish observatory. Lucy was not certain about going underwater to see the fish, but I told her you don't actually go *in* the water  :D

omg I jsut got home from the llamas house and I smell like animals! I only had Leon out for a little while to snap a couple of pics because it was really muddy... but llamas! and lambs! (I got to bottle feed a month old baby lamb).. they also had a goose, a goat, some chickens, a couple of dogs, some barn cats, a LOOM! and several GIANT boxes of wool roving! So I got some roving and Leons going to accompany me while I learn to spin it.. gave up the first time because it was too hard, but this stuff will be SO much easier to spin! We also get to go back next week or the week after to shear the sheep! its going to be SO much fun.

;D

I had a fantastic day

(my mom also got some farm fresh eggs in the most awesome colors, and my sister got a goose egg! The gooose only lays one egg a year, non fertile obviously, and it was laid this morning so they gave it to my sister to blow. So tomorrow morning we're having a goose egg omlette for breakfast!)

Yesterday Meekins and I visited Bath Abbey. Like the tea factory, they dont let you take photos indoors (I sneaked a couple!), but the risk of posing Meekins too would've been too much. So only outside photos, I'm afraid!



At a Ben and Jerry's restaurant (mmmm) in front of the Abbey.



Inside. Pretty, huh?



Side view of the Abbey.

We had a great day!!!!


Ps: Suki's arrived safe and sound in Conneticut, USA!! Yay!

Yesterday we took Naga to see Minnehaha Falls, which was gorgeous even on a cloudy day. Then we took him to Grand Ol' Creamery, my faaavorite ice cream place- voted the best in the twin cities, and fifth best overall in the COUNTRY! He had some birthday cake ice cream ;) and we got some cute pictures.

Suki finally arrived safe and sound just in time for the 80s Cartoon Party!!!

I did have a chance to introduce her to Hobbes before the party




I had to throw together a quick costume for Suki, so we settled on Butterbear from the Wuzzles (for all you babies of the 80's who might recall).  Here is a picture of Suki in all her glory, hanging out in Dr. Claw's hand.



I just had to include this as well.  It is three of my very good friends dressed as Smurfette, David the Gnome, and Tygra from the Thundercats.  Enjoy!

Awww! Leon is having alot of fun!  I feel so bad right now.  It's been very gray here, with small bursts of sunshine and I haven't done many outdoor activities.  I've brought francine to many eateries, but they were all very crowded and didn't feel comfortable with doing a photoshoot.  We went to a nice library yesterday but I forgot to put my memory card in the camera.  *smacks self on head*
Well, I have a whole month still, right?   I do have a lot planned... I need to make a list because some of the things I thought of, like museums for example, don't allow photography....I'll figure it out...I'm glad Leon saw some Llama...and sunshine.

LENNY THE HERO

Lenny stayed with me last night as a man who at the time of pickup I had not realized was armed, took me and my cab out to a very quiet neighborhood out towards the beach.  He asked me " Have you ever been robbed at gunpoint? Do you have your money?  Does anyone know where you are?  I lied to him and told him I needed a cradit card machine code and got a cryptic messge to my SO in the other cab and he and the sheriff found me before anything happenned.  Lenny was on my lap the entire time.  I am afraid I may have squished him a little when we escaped the cab, but he seems fine.

to be honest, those were some of the first photos I took because its been raining here non stop. I did manage to get one photo of him being held by a giant panda mascot..

Dang, Dragonslair...not quite what you had in mind for your Little Visitor's outing, I bet...  Congrats on your quick thinking, and warm thoughts to you and Lenny.  What a scary thing.

On an unrelated note, I had completely forgotten about David the Gnome, but I used to love that show.  Was that the title?

Okay well I'm finally posting pictures of Isis the Bunny:


She popped out of her box with a look of relief, ID clutched in her little paw!


Naturally, Angel had to inspect the newcomer to give her the Sniff of Approval. Fortunately, Isis was deemed acceptable and permitted to stay.


And this is a teaser for Raquel. We took Isis out to dinner and of course, she wanted to look at the drink selection!

jelly the mouse has arrived here for his two-day layover!  :D  somehow my info got mixed up with catsjewelry's, and smashergrl's stuffie made it to portland instead of illinois!

fortunately, jelly is taking it in stride -- although he wishes it wasn't so rainy so he could go outside and see the sights.


I'm glad to see that he made it to you safely!  Thank you soooooooo much for taking care of him, and sending him on the second leg of his trip!  I hope he behaved himself. 
 
Jelly made it to Illinois, and has already been to the movies!  Sofie is still on her way.  I hope she shows up soon!

Well, not to spoil the story....but since he's been to Columbus, Drunk Monkey has been drunk @ a party, kidnapped by people who robbed my car, FOUND in a dumpster...gaming with Roleplay Nerds and has experienced Asian Bubble Tea.

This weekend he may be taking a road trip!

Here he is, reading the White Wolf Mage: the Awakening, rulebook.

My car was broken into as well, and the backpack Drunk monkey was sleeping in got STOLEN! I was so heartbroken!

I ran up & down the allies the next night and found the poor little guy peeking out of my backpack in the dumpster behind my friend's house!

He was totally mad that he didn't get a good look at the 'perps'.

I'm sooo glad you're okay!

Well it's finally getting sunny here in CT...Wednesday I took a quick detour to the beach on my way home and Francine finally got to see the ocean.  Here's a pic of her looking for some seashells....so many pretty ones, she wanted to take them all home, but I talked her out of it.

I feel like I had so many great ideas when I signed up for this, but now all my plans are falling through. No worries though, spring break is this week, I'll do stuff now. Too bad we can't extend the swap until the end of May...


Title: Re: Little Visitor Swap Round 6 GALLERY
Post by: kitty1256 on March 31, 2007 10:23:45 AM
Well I will wait a little bit still, but if it seems like a lot of people want to extend it for another week or two, that may be okay.


Title: Re: Little Visitor Swap Round 6 GALLERY
Post by: devilninny on March 31, 2007 10:24:33 AM
i might need to extend it (if my parnter thinks thats ok) because my visitor hasn't arrived yet!


Title: Re: Little Visitor Swap Round 6 GALLERY

I would totally be up for extending if everyone is interested. Then perhaps I will be able to take Persephone out somewhere!

yeah thats the thing about sending overseas for this swap...you have to wait so long for your visitor to even get there!!  we still technically have like another 4 weeks till send outs, so lets just see how things go before deciding anything for sure.  cool?

My boyfriend surprised me with a small roadtrip today and we drove down to South Bend, IN to see Notre Dame's campus. Mind you, Mr. Paranoia didn't want to deal with security crap so we didnt actually get to see the heart of campus because it seemed like EVERYTHING was sectioned off by security check points (wtf?) and gates, but I did get one or two pictures of Leon near campus. Apparantly some woman running on a path was laughing at me taking pictures of  a stuffed animal, but I'm going to pretend she was laughing with me.

phew! eugene and i just got home from a brief (but action-packed!  :D) trip to the puget sound & surrounding area  :D

i got some great shots of eugene doing all kinds of fun things, like riding the ferry to seattle and pointing (he does a lot of pointing, what with him being a narwhal ;)) at the olympic mountains.

tomorrow i'll post a few pics of his trip, i need to get some rest.

...and funny that i call it "his" trip; at one point during the trip mr catpants said, "i'm getting the feeling that this trip is more about eugene than it is about us."  busted!  :D

Lucy and I went on a walk hike in the foothills. The trail was supposed to go to a cave, but you weren't allowed to go in the cave because of nesting bats. There were, however, some nice views, here is one at the base of the mountains:



Lucy rode in her bag because she was afraid of the big loose dogs everywhere (in complete violation of the numerous signs indicating that dogs must be leashed). Next week she might get to do some stagecraft for Romeo and Juliet!  I told her she might get to learn how to use a table saw, as well as a bad joke about table saws and dogs which she liked. ("how do you make a dog go 'meow'?";"Run it through a table saw: meeeeeooooowwww" (the latter part is pronounced similar to the way a table saw sounds)). I didn't think she would like the accompanying one about making a cat say 'woof' (it involves gasoline and a match)...

Awww, Leon will laugh with you.   I've been trying really really hard not to be around too many people when I take the pics but that's really difficult.  People are everywhere.  Oh, thought you might like to know my boyfriend keeps calling Francine a "Squid" and I keep correcting him.  He doesn't mean to offend but he'll say something like "Did you bring the squid?"  And then she attacks him...we will have him trained yet.

Well, Gina accompanied me to work today, it was a busy day so I put her in charge of answering the phone.


Before we knew it, it was already lunch time!


After lunch things started to slow down and we browsed craftser on company time, HAHA!


Gina pulled out her very first crochet project to show me, I was definitely jealous...I forgot my most recent knitting WIP at home :(


A few more hours dragged on and we packed up our stuff and headed home :)

Clive made it from Australia! He was very tired from his overseas journey, but was really curious why he was so cold. So, he stuck his nose to the window to see - snowflakes! (They're just light flurries right now, but a storm may be making it's way through tonight!)



Then we checked the local weather so we could see how cold it was outside.


After seeing the temperature, Clive decided he needed to snuggle - he picked Snort who's a lovely girl who loves attention. Do I forsee an inter-species love affair? Don't worry, Sindoll, I'll keep an eye on them! We certainly don't need any little beagle-moose kids running underfoot!  ;D

Snow is a novelty to us down here is south Louisiana. I can only remember it snowing enough to stay on the ground for a couple of days one time and that was... 17 years ago. oh lord im getting old.

Yeah, unfortunatly I live across the street from campus so I just walk there....which sucks. And I can't skip because I have to get my script from my assistant stage manager for the show I am working on in the fall.  Blah.

Manu is falling apart.....his head is large and legs are tiny, so it is almost impossible to keep him standing up to take a good picture.  I tried doing surgery on him but that didn't really seem to help, and now his legs are threatening to fall off.......i dont know what to do!!!!!!!

First I did brain surgery on him, hoping to make his head lighter......it didn't work. (This picture is post-surgery)....


Then I tried helping to support his legs better....with bobby pins.....which also didn't work...


And now his legs keep trying to fall off......poor guy.

Looks like more snow today for the visitors in Michigan........LOTS more snow.  Anyone want to explain to me why it is snowing on April 11th?

I can, if you really want. Here is a pretty picture:
http://paoc.mit.edu/synoptic/blank.asp?image=trop-us-current.gif (http://paoc.mit.edu/synoptic/blank.asp?image=trop-us-current.gif)
The color lines are the temperatures as the tropopause, which is the top of the layer that affects our weather directly (there are other layers of atmosphere on top of that, the stratosphere, mesosphere, exosphere, whatever, but they don't mess much with 'weather'), the tropopause is about 7-8 km high in this area. See that purple thing over Colorado/Kansas? You should blame it. It came from up north, and it has cyclonic rotation (like a hurricane, counterclockwise). It projects down to the surface (where we live), and pulls air around down here. It pulled up warm air to its east (the white dashed lines are the lower level temperature), in this case over the midwest, and made a low pressure system form at the surface. (Actually, the surface low and the tropopause purple blob act on each other to make each other bigger, but the purple one gets more of the blame here). That low pressure system at the surface is what is making it snow and rain in a big swirl over the middle of the US today.

We are going to get snow on Friday, but that will be the fault of the blue wiggle/purple blob that is currently south of Alaska/off of the pacific northwest.

This, I'm sure, is more than what you wanted to know. Just be glad I didn't break out the math  :)

The brain surgery picture is fantastic! 

Have you thought about putting some rice or something heavy like that in his body, to give him some more stability?

yeah i could.....i dont know how to do it without totally tearing him apart though, and then he might not get all back together again.  oh well.  poor guy....he is on vacation and has to have a theatre major perform brain surgery on him.

oh a lighter note, we built a snowman today! Manu LOVES the snow.....he doesn't get any in Louisiana!  he told me he wants to try to put the snowman in a jar and take him home with him....i'm afraid he might melt on the way, but i guess its worth a shot!  =P

Okay, so there was some chat a little while ago about possibly extending the final send-out deadling to later in May.  I am cool with this, as long as people actually want to extend it.  I am willing to extend it anywhere from 1-4 weeks, depending on what everyone wants.  However, if we do end up extending it, please don't feel like you HAVE to send later....you can always send your visitor back at the original deadline.  I just know that some people just recieved their visitors a week or two ago and perhaps haven't had much time with them.

Thanks!

I want to extend! Doesnt matter how long, but it would give me time to do more sutff. Ive had things planned, Ive just been unable to do them


Title: Re: Little Visitor Swap Round 6 GALLERY

an extension is fine with me; eugene and i have done a few things, but the weather hasn't been too cooperative yet.


Title: Re: Little Visitor Swap Round 6 GALLERY
Post by: kitty1256 on April 12, 2007 12:00:43 PM
The only thing I am afraid of with extending it is possible flakers because of the....now almost 3 month swap!  Are ya'll going to stick it out?!


Title: Re: Little Visitor Swap Round 6 GALLERY
Post by: TreeTree on April 12, 2007 12:04:00 PM
I could DEFINTELY use an extension.  I haven't brought poor Francine out too much and alot of it has to do with my insane schedule, but also partly due to the fact I don't want to get her wet.  I have some stuff planned for my bday on the 23rd and I may be able to get a whole week off from work (but not school) hopefully it'll be nice that week.  It seems like spring is kind of happening slowly over a big chunk of the US, I heard there's a big problem with various fruit crops and don't even get me started on the poor flowers.  So yeah, an extension may be necessary...a entire scrapbook of rainday pics would be a bit boring.

Edit to respond to Kitty:
I will definitely stick it out!  Flaking is against my personal moral code, I'd hate myself forever, j/king...sort of.  Anyway, I want to do this swap but I want to do it right and most indoor activities do not allow photography...like movies, museums, etc.


Title: Re: Little Visitor Swap Round 6 GALLERY

I think the swap mods would kill me if I flaked ;)

haha yeah probably.  alright lemme think about it for a bit...im thinking probably ill extend it till june 1st BUT you can sent any time before then and dont have to feel like you HAVE to keep your visitor till then if you dont want to......


Title: Re: Little Visitor Swap Round 6 GALLERY
Post by: redheadskydiver on April 12, 2007 01:28:24 PM
I could get it done by the 1st (of May) if I had to but I think an extra week or two would be nice for some breathing room.

Post by: ellie.henry on April 12, 2007 01:53:29 PM

Post by: uluru on April 12, 2007 02:04:20 PM
Extending till June would be awesome for me as in May they have finally promised us some decent weather- which is needed for beaching, camping, walking in the woods etc etc.

June 1st would also mean all my exams are over! YIPPEE! So I could take Meekins out on full-on days out without feeling guilt tripped about all the work I'm not doing!

I PROMISE (Cross my heart, hope to die) that Meekins will be returned to Conneticut, I think he's already a bit homesick (misses the weather mainly) and keeping him forever would just be cruel.

Please can we extend? Pretty please?

Post by: annacharlotte on April 12, 2007 02:58:01 PM
I am all for an extension, but second the motion that there should be some kind of mandatory communication about it, and maybe partners should actually agree on a send-back date on or before June 1st.  I know this is more work for you, kitty, but maybe just simple confirmation pm between partners, with a cc to you to make sure we're all still alive and kicking.

Sofie and I just got back from Toronto.  We need a vacation from our vacation!! 

Sofie did come a few days late, so I was going to send her the Friday after returns (may 4), but i wouldn't mind an extension.  maybe a week or so.

Alright, here's the deal.  Today is April 12th, right?  I will give everyone until April 20th (that's next friday) to PM me and let me know that they are still alive and that they will promise to send their visitors back and not flake on me if I extend it to June 1st.  However, if ONE person doesn't PM me, I can't extend it...so get on your partner!!!!

Thanks!
Kathy

Oh....if you have send/recieved anything and it STILL is not updated on the front page, please please please PM me...sometimes I forget to update things. Even if you are like "oh, kathy, i just PMed you yesterday...im sure you just havent updated it yet."  seriously, please PM me again.  thanks!!!

Ha!  I don't know if there is much to miss...it has been gray and rainy the entire time he has been gone.

I am also up for pushing back the send outs.  I am graduating in May and it would be awesome to have Suki walk with me at graduation. 

Also, yesterday was Suki's birthday!!!  She just turned 5!  The BF and I celebrated with candy and birthday grilled cheese sandwiches.  Hobbes was even nice enough to get Suki a lovely present of her very own beaded necklace.  (Pictures to follow)

I have not heard from A LOT of you about sending/recieving your contracts, and have not heard from a couple about recieving your visitors!!!  Please contact me about this ASAP.  I am going to start getting worried if I am not hearing from people about the contracts as well as about extending the swap by FRIDAY.

Bella has had so much fun going with us on our adventures and other fun outings.  Mama's Daughter's Diner is a staple for great breakfasts and pies in Dallas, so here's a picture with Mama's Daughter.  Yep, this restaurant has been around for a while! ;D



Bella was on her best behavior and even saved some biscuits and gravy for hubby and me!  She was a little tired (notice she's napping on Hubby's shoulder) from her wild Flamingo stampede!



We're having such great adventures together!

It looks like Lyle is having a great time!

Lucy and I went on a walk this morning. We saw the llama farm down the street from me, the llamas were being silly and rolling around in the field  :)  Then we walked down a trail, avoiding the numerous loose big dogs by sticking to the 'bike' side of the path. We saw some fields of thistles

and a weird looking trees. When we headed back to the road, Lucy was tired and took a break in a field of purple flowers:

I just sent out PMs to EVERYONE whose name is NOT in purple for the first and second send outs -- in other words, to those who have not told me that they have sent or recieved for a certain part of the swap, or if you have not contacted me about extending the deadline for shipping.  PLEASE CONTACT ME ASAP IF YOU RECIEVED ONE OR MULTIPLE OF THESE PMs!!!  If I don't hear from you about sending/recieving by FRIDAY, I will assume that you have flaked, and will find an angel.


Thanks, everyone!!!  Keep up the [mostly] great communication!!!

Nope, haven't heard from her except the message in the gallery she posted saying Mr. Donut arrived. After post-stalking her, I found out that some of her clothes were being featured in a local magazine, so I'm assuming that has been her focus for the past couple of weeks.

And he wanted me to post a pic to show his mom what things are like over here in the U.S. He couldn't figure out what toll he had to pay to enter the park...  I told him he was a "neat creature". He seemed okay with that, but he had to borrow the two cents.  ;D

Sullengal is a friend of mine and she is fine, she has DM and they are still adventuring together. She probably just hasn't posted recently 'cause she's busy. I'll mention to her that she should check in with you.

And Raquel I hope you had fun at your prom! Isis went to a concert on Wednesday night, she got her picture taken with one of the bands, Test Your Reflex, which was a big thrill for her. They also gave her band stickers to take home to Texas!

Here's a photo of me and him a few weeks ago, all packed to go to Perth! It's on the other side of Australia from where I live, but I was born over there, and for one week only we went there, totally last minute like!

Hi everyone!  Claudette and I have been having a great time and lots of adventures.  She even saw an alligator (from a very safe distance).  Sorry I haven't been very active on this board...real life has subsumed my Craftster addiction.  Anyway, I'm alive and well and the status on page one looks perfect.  Thanks Kitty.

YAY for voting! Congrats on your first time. I was sooo nervous my first time, but I was so prepared for what and who I was voting for, it was over in a snap! I was even done before my boyfriend, who's been doing this for over 10 years now ;)

Not a problem, cats.  work has been super busy for me too.  I havent been able to post too much on sofie's blog, but have been trying to stay busy and show her some stuff.  i have the art museum planned for this weekend.  we went to mother's day brunch, but i forgot my camera...

Gina and I have gone around town a bit, but the only time I really have is on the weekends. I work every other day and I've been incredibly sick for the past week. :( Gina keeps insisting that she's an excellent cook and that she'll whip up some chicken noodle soup for me, but she's too short to reach the stove. We do have some exciting stuff planned for the upcoming week, hopefully I'll be able to breathe out of my nose by then...and maybe my ears will stop popping too.

P.S. Catpants, I'm sorry for the lack of photos posted on this board, but I promise we have a bunch!!  ::)

Are you ready to see some pics??? I know you are! ;D  To save bandwidth, I won't post them all, just my faves.

Here we go!

Corben arrived home with a cute new scarf! He likes it so much, he hasn't taken it off, even though it's 81 degrees today! ;D



Scrapbook cover. The keychain in the corner says "Bad Boy."  :D



Corben arrived safely. Says "When Corben arrived he got right into the 'spirit' of New Orleans!" LOL



He went camping! Says "When we went camping at Lake Fausse Pointe State Park, Corben jumped right in and helped set up the tent!" 



I LOVE the lobster pencil! Cool addition! Says "Lions and Tigers and Alligators??? Oh my!"



Corben played a game of pool! Says "Corben turned out to be quite the pool shark!" And the thought bubble says "Sure!... I'm ready for the PROs!" :P



Corben on Bourbon Street! Actually, that's where we met. Awww...
Says "Bourbon Street was named in honor of the House of Bourbon, the ruling French Royal Family, at the time of the city's founding.



The end! Says "Corben may still be nursing a hangover when he gets home." ::)  ;D
The bubbles say "I'm not tired... I just look this way!" and "UH! OH! I'm gonna be SICK!!!"


If you want to see more pics, click here! (http://s117.photobucket.com/albums/o75/raina_storms/Corbens%20Scrapbook/) They're out of order, but numbered. ;)

Thank you so much, redheadskydiver! This is by far one of the coolest things I've ever received in a swap!!!  :-* :-* :-*

That is such a cool album that Corben has! 


Title: Re: Little Visitor Swap Round 6 GALLERY
Post by: annacharlotte on May 15, 2007 02:53:39 PM
I gotta get to  work!  Nice album, Corven and company! 

I sorted through all Claudette's photos yesterday, and there were...ahem...75 that I thought were good enough to consider including.  Which means I took at least twice that many.   Yeesh.  I don't think they're all going to fit so I've got some sorting to do.  But I have the album ready to fill and it is cuuuute!  If I do say so myself.  I can't wait to finish it.  I have some pretty ambitious plans for the text.  We'll see how it all works out. 

Anyway, Claudette is looking forward to seeing her mama and showing off her new duds.   And all my friends want to see the book when it's done. 

Not to mention my friend's daughter, who is eagerly awaiting Leila's return so she can meet her!  Her mom told her about the swap and she was very intrigued.  Her main concern: how did I make Leila purple!?

Flat Stanley is based on a book where a little boy named Stanley is mailed around to his family in an envelope to travel.  School children mail Flat Stanley a paper boy to friends and family and a travel journal is kept of his travels.

Reggie got to watch you vote for the first time!  How cool.  He's very political and tends to cause a rucus, so it's probably good you didn't try to take his picture.

Bella is my date for a DFW craftster meetup on Saturday.  She'll get to sit and talk and craft with about 20 or so of our fellow addicts.  I'll make sure she makes something special for you.

I love the look on her face!  LOL.  I love to mess with folks like that.  You should have seen the looks I got as a grown woman walking around with a felt robot peaking out of my purse in the airport!   Would have been understandable if I'd had a kid in tow, but no such luck. Even had her sitting on a front row table at a recent concert guarding the drinks.  I've used the Flat Stanley reference too.  Most folks in the states have had some exposure to a FS over the past few years.

I can wait to see everyone's photos!!

Likewise--I had to send my photos away to be printed because I'm picky.  I can't believe how hard it is to find a place to do matte prints with borders.  Yeesh.  I'm hoping to get them back today or tomorrow so I can start putting the book together this weekend.  2711 is cool with it, though, and doesn't seem to mind my ridiculous fussing over the photo quality...

So...funny story. 

I submitted my pictures on walmart.com to be printed for one hour photo (its awesome...you just upload the pictures and then go to the store and pick them up in an hour).  Anyway....I just went to Walmart to pick up the pictures, and I said:

"Hi, I have pictures under the last name ******"

The lady goes "Oh yeah....the life and times of knitted bunny, right?"

hahahaha!  I didn't bother to correct her and tell her that it was obviously a crocheted dog.  But she thought that it was "clever".  I said thanks and took the pictures.

Post by: serialcrafter on May 25, 2007 05:28:39 AM
There are almost 200 pictures for Bella (about half have her in them) along with a couple of movies, so I'm putting all the digital stuff on a CD, hopefully in some sense or order.  I got a good portion of the scrapbook done last night during a power failure with about 6 booklights providing my light source.  Now I need to look at it in the light of day and make sure I didn't do anything weird! 

I'm hoping to be able to send out sometime next week.  I know Reggie will be a few days late getting home because he wanted to have one last party.  Can't really blame him.  He's always up for a party. :D

I'm really going to miss Bella though.  She was such fun to have around and caused me to do some hometown stuff that I don't normally do.  I agree that two months is the perfect time frame for this swap.

So I have to die laughing here XD I was looking at the "recent posts with pics" page and my pictures were taking forever and a day to load, so I read the text and (skipping over the title), think "wow, she's friends with a crazy guy!" expecting to see a guy bent half over with his butt in a circus cannon launcher thing XDDD Then the picture loads and I was like "... well, duh. Wtf is wrong with me..." XD

Thanks!!  Can't wait to see everyones scrapbooks and goodies!

Thanks for communicating about sending late, and continue to have great communication, and we will all be cool.

Thanks!!!!

I had hoped to send a CD to my partner full of pics but I am having some computer problems and my new laptop doesn't have all the pics on it, so here's the next best thing

LENNY HAS A WEB SITE/SCRAPBOOK

yes he has a real scrapbook being shipped home too, but there were just to many pics

ALL PICS SHOULD BE UP IN THE NEXT DAY OR TWO

Suki is going to the Carribean! Wow! That is so exciting!


Title: Lucy is back!
Post by: Tygir on June 01, 2007 08:05:57 AM
Lucy has returned from Colorado! Ptarmic wumpus spoiled me for sure :)

On to the pictures!

First up: Lucy and friends! Mr. Peapod and a cute buffalo (mascot of CU)
Lucy was nice enough to model her new scarf even though its 85 degrees here!


I had seen her other wetfelted landscapes and drooled over them. Now I have one of my own!! Now to find the perfect place to put it...


Lots of nifty stuff from NOAA. The globe thing looks reeeally neat. I'm going to have to put that together after work today. Also, I don't know why but I really like the keychain that has the compass and thermometer on it. Hehe, right after taking pictures, I put it on my keyring :)


Prarie preservation alliance T-shirt (which I will be wearing tomorrow, hehe). The awesomest scrapbook ever! Its black with a gold cover. The covers are thick and heavy. It is just too cool. I need to display it somewhere. Some cute cookie cutters and some tea. There was also a teabag strainer but I tried it out this morning with my tea!


The most beautiful postcard, sticker and stamp from the Tibetan store. I loooove the colors on these.


And lastly one of my favorite pictures she sent.
A rubber ducky race!!


Thank you so much ptarmic wumpus!!!

PinFish has received some of Lenny's goodies already, we all have to bug her for pics.  She got a Wrightsville Beach Shirt and Playing cards as well as some other thing I can't remember just off the top of my head.  The rest will be shipped with Lenny.   just couldn't keep her waiting two months so Lenny and I shipped a box of treats home early.

Guess who's home!!!!  CYPRESS! 
WOW---what a package he arrived in!
Cypress burst out of his box in all his beach-bum glory!  He is sporting brand new dolphin board shorts, flip flops and a handmade hemp necklace complete with beads!
There are so many fantastic souvenirs!  I don't know where to start!  WOW!


Inside is the most incredible "Parrots of the Carribean" Scrapbook with some AMAZING photos inside!  My favorites were Cypress hanging by one leg over a pit of hungry alligators & kissing the dolphin.
Also included is a full CD of all Cypress' photos & adventures.
Ok, so now I am going to make everyone jealous with the photos:









This fantastic Pirate craft bag filled with an activity pad, stickers, a matching hemp necklace for me, a Key Lime Candy cane and a deck of pirate cards! 









Extra photos and post cards from various locations



The coolest handmade marine life.........so wonderfully crafted! 






A dolphin plushie!


Brochures from all over!  And expanding sponge pills!
(Something I  have always wanted but have never had..........I'm so excited to try these out!)



Now, is this just the coolest outfit ever!? :)  Aeron made Cypess this rockin' Pirate outfit for Cypress complete with eye patch, pirate hat, gold coins and vest with a Parrot attatched!!!!!!!
SOOOO cool! 





Aeron, you were the best swap partner ever!  THANK YOU SO MUCH For everything!  I can't wait to explore everything further!  The postman JUST dropped off the package and I literally tore into it!  So now I can go back and check everything out.

Do tell more about this rubber ducky rac!

Man it was hard finding a box to fit all that in.  But it is done.  We took Lenny to the "Octopus Airport" and sent him home.  The kids can't wait to see Naga again


Title: Re: Little Visitor Swap Round 6 GALLERY
Post by: PinFish on June 02, 2007 02:50:26 PM
Good news then- Naga's almost ready to go home (I just have to find time to go to/a ride to the post office, heh)! But yes, I got the photos printed this morning, and 4 jam-packed hours of scrapbooking later, I am DONE. That has GOT to be some kind of record- the scrapbook has 20 6x6 pages! My fingers hurt, haha.

I am still piecing together my scrapbook like mad at the moment.... will be finished very soon I promise.  Sorry I'm a latey... had a crapola month with the hospital visits... but much better now and crafting like a demon  ;D

Yeah I can't believe it, but I'm sending late too, due to pet emergencies and overtime at work. I just have a few pages left to finish but I can't quite seem to find the time to do them! Arg!

Title: Re: Little Visitor Swap Round 6 GALLERY
Post by: annacharlotte on June 04, 2007 11:17:23 AM
I just went to the post office and holy buckets, international postage is expensive!  I was definitely regretting some of the heavier items in the box, but what're you going to do?  I had to send Claudette home with lots of treats! 

Anyway, she's on her way.  I'm PMing all the appropriate folks.  Everybody wish her godspeed.  I'm going to be a mess if something happens to that box...

I was trying to think yesterday how much time I put into the project all in all.  My boyfriend, when asked, just said "a whole lot."

Lyle arrived today from his trip to visit Tygir in Virginia!  Here are some photos showing off his trip and the goodies he brought back:

Here Lyle is showing off his scrapbook and cd of photos


Here's all the loot he found in Virginia!

There are some magnets, a shotglass, vintage buttons, a bitty bottle of dirt from the GW forest, a piggy bank, a box decorated with easter egg shells that Lyle helped to dye, a crocheted catnip banana for my kitties, and a new friend!

Lyle made a new friend, who I decided to name Olga!


Kahlua is definately enjoying the banana  :D


And here is a pic from the scrapbook of Lyle visiting the arboretum!


Thanks for being a great host to Lyle and for all the goodies, Tygir!

Picture time!!

Magenta arrived home today with a huge box of goodies and memories!!



My cool new Louisiana Parks Hat (Even though I look goofy in hats...)



Lots and lots of postcards from Louisiana AND Texas (Magenta got to go to both!!!)



All sorts of goodies from the Louisiana Stata Parks!!  A hat, a pencil, cool brochures, a cup, and even a temporary tattoo!



JaneAustin made Magenta a new scarf to wear here during the chilly winter (though she is a bit warm wearing it now in the hot summers!!) And also she came home with some Mardi Gras beads from all that partying down on Burbon Street!



Looks like she made some new friends at one of the parks and decided to bring them home with her.



She also brought home all sorts of yummy foods for me to try!  There's some spicy seasoning, tobasco sauce, kettle chips, and saltwater taffy!  Yum!!



A travelers guide...In case I ever actually get to go there...



A CD full with tons and tons of pictures, and a glowstick from the parks that I somehow left out of the picture above...



A Troll pillowcase for me!!  I love it!!



And last but not least....the picture book! It was sooooo much fun looking through it and seeing Magentas adventures!!



Thank you Janeaustin for being such an awesome partner!!!!

The photo of the kitty "eating" her catnip banana is adorable!

Wow, GREAT swap packages so far. People should put pictures from the albums up on their flickr or somesuch so we can see more of them!

I am an idiot, I finally finished the last two pages of Isis's album last night and got everything all packed neatly into a box and then FORGOT IT AT HOME.

*sigh*

I swear, I'd forget my head if it wasn't bolted to my neck.

Well I'm defiantly going to send out today!

I was going to send out yesterday, but I had a small problem. My little sister kidnapped Shmoopy! I had no idea where he was! I seriously had to interrogate my her till she admitted where he was and where she put him. He's safe now though and she says she is sorry.

Aw kitty I love that pic of Magenta in the bag of the VW bug! So cute!

Haven't heard about getting my Naga back.  Katie (age 3) is convinced we lost him.  Lenny arrived home on the 4th, but I haven't heard from PinFish about it yet.

UPDATE

Seems the PM saying Naga would be coming home soon is lost in cyberspace.  I was making a dragon the other day and that's when Katie noticed we had sent Lenny home but Naga wasn't on the desk where he belongs.  But PinFish says Lenny is home safe and sound.  Sorry PinFish, just a cross in the communication lines


Title: Re: Little Visitor Swap Round 6 GALLERY
Post by: PinFish on June 07, 2007 05:50:43 AM
So sorry, my summer class started this week. Naga will be on his way home tomorrow, I'll send you the DC then. I had some problems with the package yesterday, when I was planning to send. I leave at 7am and get home at 6pm on weekdays so the PO is already closed, makes it difficult when you don't have a car.

ETA: I did message you a bit ago about when I was sending, did you not get it?
Also I recieved Lenny yesterday, thanks, I love everything! I'll post pictures once the weather clears up enough to give me enough light  ::) It's been stormy for like a week now. Really frustrating.

ooh, i can't wait to see it in person! :)  eugene's scrapbook is slowly but surely coming along and i'm working on some extras to send along, since i feel like i didn't get to take as many pictures as i had hoped for.  and to make up for sending late.  :-\

but, the kitty appears to be doing better.  he's going back to the vet on saturday for some more blood tests which will hopefully rule out some icky possibilities.

Post by: PinFish on June 08, 2007 02:30:35 PM
Time for photos!!

Here's everything! I know, it's a HUGE amount! There's Lenny with his little face piercing  :D


Here's a closeup of the two smaller scrapbooks- are these the two your kids did, Dragonslair? They're SUPER cute! I love them! Also there's some confederate money (my fiance stole this right away, he collects money related stuff) and the confederate flags.


Here's the little passport carrier (I think) and Lenny's journal and clipboard (so tiny and cute!) and a pretty crochet bookmark! There's also a cute little star stamp and a gorgeous button.


See? I adore this button, seriously. I'm thinking of making it into a choker somehow.


Here's one of the boxes stuff came in, with some seashells (yay!) postcards and a little ferry charm! There was also some plastic eggs from her kids, my cat Simon decided they were toys and now I can't find them  ::)


Here's my favorite thing- a little meditation/alter box for Lenny. It has incense, candles, smooth stones, and a beautiful picture.


Here's the man of the hour  :D and his GIANT scrapbook! This thing must be like 4 inches thick!


My other favorite item... a jar of sea sand. I love the ocean but I've lived smack in the middle of the country my whole life.

Thanks so much Dragonslair  :D this swap was so much fun!

Hello. 

Well, Leila arrived during the Craftster drought, but happily it is raining ribbons and fabrics and threads again and I can show you all what she brought home!

Here comes the picture show.

Out of the box and ready to rock.  I looove her new sweater!  So cute!  It suits her very well.


And (cover the children's eyes) here she is in her new skivvies!


Showing her English pride:


And now the scrapbook...

Her first day:


My favorite page, learning the English ways...


Now with clever vellum overlay!


And this page totally cracked me up!  Here is Leila, being snubbed by the English gentry.


At the chilly sea with her marvelous hostess, 2711:


Meeting the British Scooby Doo:


Where's Leila?


The Belle of Bristol:


Leila had a great time.  Thanks, 2711!

I hope Claudette gets home soon.  She should be there any minute, cuz I sent a day or two before Leila went in the mail.  Everybody cross your fingers she gets home safely.

Daryl is home from his visit with MissNewEngland!!  Actually, he's been home for a week or so, but my camera hasn't been cooperating.

Here he is!


He brought home a scrapbook, assorted bath products (for me!), a Cal coffee cup, some cute erasers and stickers, a little hippo scrubbie wearing a lovely beaded necklace, a decorated clipboard, candy, and some cool jewelry.

Most of his pictures were on a DVD, so maybe MissNewEngland can post some of them.

Thanks again!!,

Alrighty everyone, I received little Isis and her swap package from Sarahpanda today. Isis got to vacation in beautiful Ohio! Everything is awesome! She came back with the most coolest scrapbook. I seriously love it. There were also a lot of fliers and magazines to look at.


Sarahpanda also knitted Isis the cutest little sweater, sent some yummy chocolates, and some little dice for playing Dungeons and Dragons (i think?)
Thanks you soooo much Sarah!

I get off of work every day Mon-Thu at 4:30...I rushed home yesterday, grabbed up my package, and hurried it off to the post office only to have the door closed in my face.  >:(

You have no idea how pissed I was.

Anyway, it looks like I'll have to send it out on friday just because I can't feasibly get to the damn place before it closes. I'm sorry and I never intended on being this damn late. Honestly, my package is all taped up and labeled and everything. Grrrr!!

Shmoopy came home on Monday! He returned with some badass loot and an adorable photo album. Thanks for showing him such a good time Raquel!


The Shmoopster with his souvenirs. 


The tiny Mexican blanket and hat? Adorable.


It's a milk carton--no, it's a radio! Awesome!


My favorite album page, made by Raquel's little sister. Holy cute Batman!


I'm so jealous, Shmoopy got to go to the Carlsbad Caverns!


Here he is at the Mexican border.


And here's my adorable dog showing off the awesome purse Raquel sent. I love bags, I can never have enough of them! It will be great for attending summer festivals!

Thanks Raquel! And thanks to the organizer too!

That's funny, the reason I wasn't able to take pics before francine left was I brought my camera to work, but forgot the flash card!

I know its around here somewhere... I brought it with me to the store to print pics for your scrapbook and now I cant find it.

I hope someone at the store didn't get a free 1 gig compact flash card.

Good luck with finding the Flashcards everyone- I so know that feeling!!!

Brilliant swap packages! Manu is gorgeous, and that little tabby cat is adorable.

Major swap anxiety now...where IS Meekins?? It's been 10 days already. I hope he travels safely home to Katie, and SOON!!!

Yeah, Clive is certainly taking his time getting back to Australia, too! Three weeks is a long time for him to spend in his little travel "bag".  :P

Hopefully Mr. Donut starts winging his way back to me soon - we're moving in 4 weeks!

Apparentally Raina.Storms was hit by a car and is in the hospital...so....pray for her if you are religious.  Or send your thoughts her way.  I guess she is alright...but is still in the hospital so will be sending late for this swap.

So my camera is sadly out of commission. I seem to have lost the compact flash card. I bet its at the store (used it when I printed my pictures for treetree), but Im afraid they say they dont have it. :(

But I took pictures of the stuff treetree sent home with francine just now at work! Dont tell my boss, mk?



Everything as a whole. I got some pretty sweet pamphlets that I'll be using next time I go to connecticut (sadly, last time i was there was very brief and only lasted long enough to see the capitol and visit krazigal72 for a couple hours).



Francine has a new friend! Cora the jellyfish. She'll be hanging up in my car accompanying Francine and Mr. Whaley Dude.



Nutmeg, some seashells in a lovely mesh bag and a nutmeg grater! mmm nutmeg ;D

(little did treetree know, I collect "nature" from different areas. I have sand or dirt from several states, as well as two different parts of Mexico, Grand Cayman, and soon a couple different Bahaman islands. Now I have seashells from connecticut!)



The front of the scrapbook! The pictures are all very awesome and the scrapbook is hilarious, seriously. treetree has an awesome sense of humor



My favorite pages in the scrapbook ;D

THis was an awesome swap! Leon will be making his way home very soon, I just have to put the finishing touches on a couple things and then I'm done.

So, I have finally unpacked and gotten settled and had a chance to take some photos of the wonderful goodies uluru sent.

Meekins with all his swag


Lovely beaded jewelry ( I wish I had such talent)


I am adore the pearl dangly earings.  And the ones with the hearts.  And the blue ones.  And also the ones with the chain.


Thanks again uluru!!  You made my very first swap wonderful!!

This is the handmade scrapbook uluru made. So cute!  She added so many nice little details.

I recieved from Petite_renoncule today...So much good stuff! Really brightened my day...thankyou so much!

Suki is home after a long and very eventful trip!


One of my favorite pages in the beautiful scrapbook! Plus Suki in her gorgeous new shirt.


From top, Red beaded necklace (stunning!), Keyring (fun!!), Orange beaded bracelet (Gorgeous and fits me beautifully!), Keyring Zipper purse, mini basketball, Mix CD (I am really enjoying this...so much new and brilliant music) and Suki in the Huskies Shotglass!!!

An incredible amount of gorgeous, beautiful postcards from all the places Suki visited. Plus a windowsticker from the Conneticut Huskies!!!

More tourism leaflets from Suki's sightseeing! And her ID/Passport (so cute!!!!)

Sweets, candies and chocolate to last me all summer (since taking the photo, 2 lollies and the skittles have "mysteriously vanished...")

Suki tucked up after the long trip, in her new (very beautiful) quilt. Aaah! She (and I) both adore it!!!
(Suki is shirtless here, to show off her beautiful necklace. She's decided she does like some purples, after all (including this one!))

Thankyou so much, petite_renoncule, you are an amazing swap partner.

I've finally found my camera cable, so will be posting pictures of Reggie the Gnome's travels soon.  He came home with the greatest tote bag ever for me and a few new outfits which made me really wonder what he was up to.

I can probably post a few pics of Bella's grand adventure for Crazyqt13 too.

I received the most awesomly wonderful package from catpants over a week ago and i haven't posted pictures yet! I swear, when I signed up for this swap I had absolutely NOTHING going on in my life and I thought, "Oh, this will keep me busy until I can find a job!". Alas, I don't have any time for anything anymore it seems. I promise I'll post photos tonight!


Title: Re: Little Visitor Swap Round 6 GALLERY
Post by: sweaterbrau on July 10, 2007 02:16:14 PM
I...am a rotten person. I am particularly late posting these photos but here they finally are:

All the loot! I got a bunch of Portland zines (LOVE zines!), little beeswax tea candles, bubbles, Oregon-themed stickers, postcards, a cloth pantiliner from Glad Rags (so cool!), handspun yarn which I am totally geeked about, and a Stanford mix CD. Not pictured is a nestlace (which I haven't taken off since I got it) and some dark chocolate that was promptly devoured upon opening the package.


Catpants' very first handspun yarn! She learned to spin during Eugene's stay.


Here's Eugene (the Viking narwhal) chilling with his new friend, Squishy pig.

Don't be fooled by the late-ness of my picture posting, I love everything!

Post by: catpants on July 12, 2007 07:49:30 PM
yay!  i'm so glad you like everything :)  and it was good to see a pic of eugene at home -- i kinda miss him!  :-\

i'd love to see a picture of what you knit with the yarn, too! :)

Oh gosh I hope Raina.Storms is okay, I wish there was something we could do besides twiddling our collective thumbs hoping she'll come back soon.

And I hope that Sindoll turns up again too! It would be terrible if Mr. Donut never found his way home. :(

There will be more on his blog if you want to look, but you should definitely see the wonderful stuff that SullenGal sent! Thank you so much, I'm sorry I have been so late in posting!


This was funny.

DM Scores a blanket!

and a new friend who hatches out of a football!

Tasty goodies

Super cool album box

Pictures on CD too and, a passport! now he can travel legally! He also came home with a pimpin Ohio necklace and a banana of his very own, which, being made from fimo, I'm not allergic to it!

He came home with so many great  goodies and some really fun pictures. thank you so much!!
