I received my OTT from SamJ today. I love it. Absolutely love it!  SamJ, for a first time swapper, you've excelled yourself.  The work on this purse is outstanding! 

From your colour choices (lovely navy denim colour with pink/lilac lining & matching zip) to the stitches ... it's beautiful!



And I love my little fairy and the beading detail too.  I wonder how you knew I liked fairies??? 



My little ankle biter will have a hard job prying this from my hands!  Thanks again for such a wonderful tiny thing! xxx

ps (just pm'ing you and our hostess now)

Both are so darling - great swap partners!! 

SamJ the change purse you made with the fairy is so beautiful.  Nice job!

Post by: indigo_roses on February 12, 2008 10:30:51 AM
I received!!! Prepare to wist...



and inside the box was...

an awesome Starbucks upcycled bracelet! I have absolutely no idea how she makes them, but they look amazing!
Action shot!


Thank you so much doxiemommy! You were a great swap partner! Now I have swap anxiety, and I haven't even started yet. I did try to start while my pictures were uploading, but I can't open my freakin' jar of rubber cement. And now doxiemommy is probably quite confused, which is how it should be.  ;) Also, thank you Homerof2 for organizing!


Title: Re: OTT 17 Gallery
Post by: RubyTuesday on February 12, 2008 10:53:22 AM
Wow that hamster is just the cutest and i adore his little backpack, great action shots ;D

Fantastic bracelet  :) doxiemommy, I've had my eye on your pendants!! -I've no idea how you make those but I hope someday I can learn to do it too! ;D

Thia is already shaping up to be a great gallery ..~I'm getting a touch of swap anxiety!

Post by: doxiemommy on February 12, 2008 03:30:31 PM
*blush* You guys are so nice! And I'm glad it got to you safe and sound and that you like it! I should post a tut on how to do them but I need both hands to hold them and if I let the pliers go then it all slips and I have to start over ...maybe some day when the hubby is home lol.


That litter hamster is the cutest thing in the entire world!! And the little fairy is sooo well done. And shes right I'm totally lost and want to know what the rubber cement is for!

I just have to ask - what is upcycling?  Does it mean recycling but making something better?

Yep, pretty much!  It's turning wasted into useful products/pieces.

So in other words, we might get one someday (hopefully *ahem*), but probably not immediately.

The postman brought me a Valentine's Day OTT package!!

I received from Rackycoo just now and my tiny thing is soooo wonderful!  She knows me too well (that is scary!)! :) :)

All wrapped up & snazzy-looking!
Dark red, black and white were our wedding colors...tee hee. ;D :D


YOWZA, it's a beautiful painted wall plaque that means so so so very much to me!


Elephants have a very special meaning to me and hubby. :)

Look close... it's our wedding date, AHH!


Check out the amazing colors and detailing in her work...


Even the back of my tiny thing is pretty!  Who does that?!?  Racky, that's who! :D


Thank you so much, Racky! :-* :) ;D :-*

Yay it's my turn to receive! ;D

The wonderful MightyMouse made me this beautiful key chain, it's so pretty and has the cutest little red riding hood ribbon  ;D ..just look at the little pretzel and matching red clip  ;D and it's all so nicely made, so much attention to detail even the little ribbon on the pretzel themes in with the main fabric!  :) 




Thanks MightyMouse I love it, can't believe it's you first swap  :)


Title: Re: OTT 17 Gallery

What a great keychain! That ribbon so cute, and I love the little pretzel.

Post by: doxiemommy on February 16, 2008 01:22:50 PM
MY TURN MY TURN omg I got my OTT from indigo_roses and it's amazing!


Anyways here she is, she says her name is Leelu and that I can borrow her pretty flower and time I'd like but I have to return it to her because it makes her feel extra pretty! I also asked her if she was a big 5th element fan and she just giggled and said no....







And because she said that she should go swimming I couldn't argue!




Thank you indigo_roses she's the most amazing little thing I've EVER seen! And I love her to death!


Title: Re: OTT 17 Gallery
Post by: Homerof2 on February 16, 2008 01:28:09 PM
No wonder you were so excited in the PM you sent me, doxiemommy, she's adorable!  Great job indigo_roses!


Title: Re: OTT 17 Gallery
Post by: indigo_roses on February 16, 2008 04:11:24 PM
And because she said that she should go swimming I couldn't argue!

Did you actually put her in the water??? I mean, I guess she could technically go in, might not be too good for the glue holding the flower to the pin though. She's made of all cotton (plus polyfil and plastic eyes), so she can go swimming. I'm glad you like her!


Title: Re: OTT 17 Gallery
Post by: doxiemommy on February 16, 2008 04:51:39 PM
HAHAAHA no...she really didn't go in the water I put a little piece of tape to the back of her and stuck her to my fishie tank. Took the picture real fast while she was holding still (she was wiggling a lot!) and then took the tape of.


No cute octopuses where harmed in the making of these pictures! I swear!


Title: Re: OTT 17 Gallery
Post by: Ma Rut on February 16, 2008 04:53:28 PM
Haha! I was convinced that it was in the water :D


Title: Re: OTT 17 Gallery
Post by: doxiemommy on February 16, 2008 04:59:50 PM
*giggles* oh boy...thats silly I didn't think of that. Hmm no I wouldn't throw her in the water my fish would try to eat her. Besides she says she's not a big fan of none salt water...


Title: Re: OTT 17 Gallery
Post by: indigo_roses on February 16, 2008 07:23:35 PM
I really wasn't sure, because it's a little blurry, and I didn't see any string! I wouldn't want Leelu to be eaten by your fishies, that would be sad.  :'(


Title: Re: OTT 17 Gallery
Post by: instantkarma on February 16, 2008 08:47:14 PM
That little octopi is adorable. I totally want it.

Post by: MightyMouse on February 19, 2008 12:49:13 PM
Yay - my computer is back! And an even bigger YAY - I've recieved my great, beautiful tiny thing - a glass pendant! When I saw the little package I got all excited and called my whole family to come and watch me unpack :D





I love everything about it: The horse on the stamp, the flowers on the backside, the bag in wich it came,  tied with a cute little polka-dot-ribbon  (I so love polka dots! :D)...

Thank you, Rubytuesday!

I received!!

This is my awesome little (yet unnamed) guy from Hellobint! Isn't he precious?! I think I'm going to dangle him from my cell-phone for all the world to see.  :D

He was hiding in his shell when I opened him...



And without the shell:



Isn't he cuuuuute?! I wish my [roomate's] camera took clearer pictures...

 :D  Toriaa i'm so glad you liked him!!  He was originally going to have a friend for travel but it proved impossible to make one equally as cute!!  tribute should go to the dino dudes post, on which he was based ....


Title: Re: OTT 17 Gallery
Post by: Homerof2 on February 21, 2008 06:35:22 AM
TOMORROW is the send out deadline and so far we still have 9 people who haven't sent and I've received no PMs telling me anyone is going to be late - so I guess that means you are all sending on time, right??


Title: Re: OTT 17 Gallery
Post by: Homerof2 on February 21, 2008 06:36:28 AM
Check out the first page on the main swap thread to see if your name is the correct color - in other words, if you've sent and forgot to let me know, do so now in a PM, not on here!


Title: Re: OTT 17 Gallery

Title: Re: OTT 17 Gallery
Post by: hangthedjay on February 21, 2008 08:36:50 AM
I have to keep reminding myself not to send anything besides the item...it's always so tempting! I'm on the third incarnation of my item right now, something keeps going wrong!


Title: Re: OTT 17 Gallery
Post by: hellobint on February 21, 2008 12:36:23 PM
nonono!  he was going to be a pair of earrings!

(i'm a good girl honest!)  :P

actually it might be better he turned out this way - could be a bit ear-stretching otherwise!!

I used the same tutorial to build my lightbox - what a blessing that was!!

Instead of using tissue paper I used velum.  For some reason the tissue paper wasn't letting enough light in, but the velum worked really well.

I got fun mail from sweets4ever today! It's this lovely pack of letters, tied so sweetly with a ribbon:


At first I thought she had made me a set of stationary, and I was wondering if I should rat her out to Homerof2 for making more than one tiny item  ::), but look closely: it's a little secret box, lined with some great fabric!


How cute is that?

Thanks so, so much, sweets! What a great tiny item!  :-*

Post by: Homerof2 on February 25, 2008 11:24:04 AM

I have to admit that my first thought was - SWEETS WHAT HAVE YOU DONE! sending a stack of note cards!   ;D  So glad it wasn't!



Title: Re: OTT 17 Gallery

;D :D  I knew you guys would just be waiting to bust me! 8)

I'm really glad you like it, Racky!  Yay!

I got the idea from Carol Duvall. :D  http://www.hgtv.com/hgtv/cr_paper_crafts_boxes/article/0,,HGTV_3289_1399648,00.html  I dyed invitation envelopes (the small ones, Homer! :D) with caramel tea and aged them with ink, stamps and fun stuff.  I'll post that part as a tutorial somewhere...paper crafts or misc.?

EDIT:  I posted it on Paper Crafts :)  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=229885.0

Okay, my partner said she received and would post pictures, but she hasn't yet...so I thought I would post the one that I took.

She said that she liked steampunk but also had a bohemian air about her, so I made her this necklace:



My thought was that the yarn made it look like it was made out of hemp (for the bohemian part) but also that working in circles like that reminded me of gears (for the steampunk part).

And yeah, I realize that it's not exactly 4" x 4", but the actual necklace part is; the chain isn't, but that's because I needed it to actually fit around her neck. Don't worry, I cleared it all with our lovely organizer before I sent it.

Yikes, that's not what I had in mind when you asked about going over size.  It's nice but much larger than I thought it was going to be  :)  Guess I better ask more questions next time.

Aw, I'm sorry!  :-[ I thought it was going to end up much, much smaller too (the pattern said so), but I guess my crochet skills aren't good enough to make things...the...right...size. You may forever throw me into the land of "people who made medium-sized items for a One TINY Thing swap". I think that's the...seventh circle of hell? Eighth? Hmmm.

Again, awesome.
I love it Pinkguin, thanks!

Sorry it has taken me so long to post a photo.. Here is my wonderful one tiny thing.  A chicken pin cushion!  It is made of quilted material, and has some neat praire points for the tail and beak.  (hidden under the yarn tail)  I did not show the other side, which has pins all in it!  Thanks so much!  Linda P

Loving the chicken - the colours are great and it really is a good example of OTT showing great skills! 

now i want mine (stupid customs!)

I'm pretty sure my partner has received her package...so I'll post a picture here, though hopefully she'll have a better one
It's a felted flower hair clip

such amazing tiny items, everyone!!

i can't believe yours hasn't arrived yet hellobint - i hate having my item be the last to be received :( i promise i sent on time! canada post is not the most time-savvy, you see...


Title: Re: OTT 17 Gallery
Post by: hellobint on March 07, 2008 05:43:01 AM
to be honest, i think it might be my local post - randomly, when I have my stuff sent to work, it does generally turn up in 2 weeks from the US.  Ah well, patience is a virtue and all that....

Post by: hangthedjay on March 09, 2008 01:46:54 PM
Just wanted to post a really nerdy picture of me wearing the necklace that instantkarma made - I absolutely love it!


Yours should be getting there any day now, can't wait for you to get it!!

i still have to post pics of my dainty little thing. i would have earlier but we've been passing the flu around at our house (my nephew so generously shared his with us) i did try to get pics (and i have a good camera) but i can seem to get a pic that i think does it justice! i will try again in natural light tommorrow if not i will post the best one i have so far

i probably took 20 pics with different back grounds and light and thisis the one i think is the best



awesome! thanks linda

HELP!  I am in need of an angel for this swap.  The person receiving is in the UK.

If anyone is interested, please PM me.  I thought I would check here before posting on the angel board.

Thanks to RubyTuesday for being an angel for this swap!!

Post by: toriaa on March 21, 2008 10:39:25 AM
sorry to read that we needed one...

me too... especially since i am the "flaker"! my package never made it to hellobint.  :( ??? :(

since it seems as though she won't be receiving it any time soon, here is the OTT that i sent!



i call him Harold the Inspiration Duck (since hellobint has been looking for motivation to learn to knit!).


Title: Re: OTT 17 Gallery
Post by: rackycoo on March 21, 2008 11:11:50 AM
Aw, he's cute.

toriaa, you're not a flaker if you sent. We will blame the PO on this one.  :)


Title: Re: OTT 17 Gallery
Post by: sweets4ever on March 21, 2008 11:21:55 AM
I bet it will show up someday.  Canada to England... it could be visiting the north pole on its way there for all the mailing system knows. :D


Title: Re: OTT 17 Gallery
Post by: Homerof2 on March 21, 2008 01:51:03 PM
toriaa, that is so cute!  I do hope it arrives some time and that a postal worker somewhere isn't enjoying it!


Title: Re: OTT 17 Gallery
Post by: indigo_roses on March 21, 2008 02:07:51 PM
That is really cute! Too bad it didn't make it!


Title: Re: OTT 17 Gallery

International mail does sometimes take a huge detour! and I've sent to you today so you might end up with that cute lil' knitting ducky and something else ;)

I'm still hoping that my package to instantkarma shows up, but I'm going to re-make and send out this week.  :( Damn post office. Well, one can never have too many tiny things.

Ok so in a feat of entire randomness, my ducky from toriaa just arrived!!  I have NO idea wha epic journey he went it (it was obviously mildly traumatic as he lost an eye and his knitting fell off in the process) but it has arrived!!  woooooooooooooooo


Title: Re: OTT 17 Gallery

wow! talk about taking a lengthy detour!



Title: Re: OTT 17 Gallery
Post by: 1boy1girl1kitty2 on April 18, 2008 03:15:43 PM
hey all! i angeled for instantkarma and after taking its time to get to her, her package finally arrived! she mentioned she wouldn't be able to post a pic for a few days so i offered to post the one i have. i couldn't have hand picked someone easier to craft a tiny thing for. she has SOOOO much in common with my DH who so coveted the gift bag the tiny thing was in!

her questionnaire said she'd really love a pair of crochet hoop earrings, so i did just that but added a twist. i checked her profile and found out she posted a few 'geek' inspired projects of her own so i added  . . .  dice! and being i didn't have a box small enough to send them in i wanted to protect them in shipping so i made a giftbag to put them in (it was a snug fit so they wouldn't move!)

so now that you read my novel . . . onto the pic! maybe she will post an action shot when she gets time

Post by: 1boy1girl1kitty2 on April 19, 2008 05:20:43 PM
SO GLAD YOU LIKE THEM! any chance you could post an action shot? i tried the best i could to see what they'd look like on with out actually putting them on. i'm curious how the dice look


Title: Re: OTT 17 Gallery
Post by: Homerof2 on April 19, 2008 06:02:15 PM
Thanks to Ruby Tuesday and 1boy1girl1kitty2 for being angels for this swap.  IT'S FINALLY OVER!!

Post by: instantkarma on April 19, 2008 08:10:11 PM
I will try to pull off an action shot in the next week or so, but one of the earrings is broken (dice fell off) so I'll work on it. :) Doesn't look too hard to fix.
