Post by: hgolightly09 on October 04, 2008 10:20:42 AM
I just sent in my info! I didn't realize until last year that I was attracted to so much stuff that had whimsical birds on them! I found this out when I bought a set of plates for my apartment that had really cute birds on them, but then my roomies pointed out that there was a snake eating them and that they were a bit...special. I didn't even notice! I just thought the birds were cute! haha


Title: Re: Birds are beautiful round 3 sign ups CLOSED sendouts extended to 11/21
Post by: kirstilynne on October 04, 2008 04:09:32 PM

Title: Re: Birds are beautiful round 3 sign ups CLOSED sendouts extended to 11/21
Post by: hgolightly09 on October 08, 2008 12:06:52 PM
See...my problem is that I don't like specific types of birds, I just like things that have bird shapes on them. Or like sillouettes and stuff...

Here's the link to the picture that's on the plates that I was talking about. I couldn't find a picture of the plates themselves because my camera needs new batteries!  http://static.flickr.com/91/244248117_17cdb9b935_o.gif

I can't wait for this swap!!

that pattern of birds and snakes isnt too bad, just ignore the fact that the snake has it's mouth open. or imagine its just saying something friendly and sociable to the bird. ;D I like vintag-y patterns like that.

Im so excited to be part of this swap!! I have listed more that 5 birds too... Its so hard to pick favourites =). My definate fav. is owls though and I forgot to add it to my list!! Hopefully sera got my message that I quickly sent after I realised my error  ??? I started listing some exotic birds and forgot about the basic ones that I liked.


Title: Re: Birds are beautiful round 3 sign ups CLOSED sendouts extended to 11/21
Post by: doyouloveanapple on October 09, 2008 06:08:55 AM
I also definatly have more than 5 fav birds...birds are just so wonderful to craft. Strangly enough, I also forgot to put owl on my list and sent it as a seperate message after! Sneaky owl.



Title: Re: Birds are beautiful round 3 sign ups CLOSED sendouts extended to 11/21
Post by: clairol5 on October 09, 2008 06:24:39 AM
OOOO I am seriously considering this! I love stuff with birds on, but don't necessarily have a favourite bird. Would this be a problem?


Title: Re: Birds are beautiful round 3 sign ups CLOSED sendouts extended to 11/21
Post by: Sera unravled on October 09, 2008 09:46:14 AM
no problem at all.  As long as you like birdie things your fine.




Owls are sneaky. :D  Almost everyone has listed owls as one of their favorites.  Owls creep me out.  I had a close encounter with one when I was little.

Really hope I can find the time to so this one.

What sort of run in with an owl? They are so fluffy and cute, with their huge eyes that can't move. I did a project on owls in the 3rd grade and have loved them ever since.

They eat mice whole! Amazing.

Love, doyouloveanapple.

When I was six years old I was going up stairs from the basement and I turned to look out the window because I heard a noise.  I saw a huge owl staring back at me.  I was probably only two feet away from it and it totally scared the crap out of me.  My whole family thinks I made it up and my mom thinks that what I saw was actually a macrame owl.  But I know it was a real owl, and its big huge eyes were staring at me like it was trying to look inside my brain.

Owls are beautiful creatures but they freak me out a little.


Title: Re: Birds are beautiful round 3 sign ups CLOSED sendouts extended to 11/21
Post by: JadedJenn on October 10, 2008 08:31:08 AM
I think the macrame owl would be scarier.  ;)

Post by: maehem on October 10, 2008 12:31:12 PM
i think im in for this. the owl themed swap was so fun, and this is right on track!

i'm partial to blackbirds and swallows. and owlies of course! hmmm... i'm gonna have to do some birdie research for this! peacocks!!! ooohhhhh! :D

 ;D Maehem!!! I must be stalking you..... ;) (just kidding)! Birds rock - but I just love the owlies!!! and swallows and robins and cranes..... ::) Crap. I'm gonna have to sign up, aren't I???

Post by: kirstilynne on October 10, 2008 08:38:00 PM
I don't know why you WOULDNT sign up for this one! :D it'll be awesome.

since we were talking about favorite birds. i mentioned a few in my survey but there are so many to pick from. i love sea birds. sand pipers, plovers, seagulls (even though they poop a lot they are very pretty!), puffins, cormerants etc. I like humming birds, and peacocks, and chickens. I love backyard birds. we have lots of bluejays that live in our yard (9 of them to be exact) and a ton of chickadees. Not to mention the nuthatches and the 12 woodpeckers that live in the yard as well. (one day we counted them all in the front yard back and forth from the suet block to the front window trees. :D birds are awesome. i think i got the bird loving trait from sitting in the window watching them with the cat hahhaha.

Post by: hippiejo74 on October 10, 2008 08:49:58 PM
 ;) I love most birds....but chickens and turkeys freak me out. My cousins (who used to farm turkeys, among other things) tricked me once - I had to go into the turkey pen and "catch my own Thanksgiving turkey" - after they riled it up....I didn't realize that turkeys attack!!!! Man - they are like swans and ducks - you better run - 'cause if they catch you, you'll get pecked like you wouldn't believe :-[ I know they didn't think it would be as bad as it was (I ended up with peck wounds everywhere) and they did it in fun (and not to hurt me), but they still kinda freak me out  ::)


Title: Re: Birds are beautiful round 3 sign ups CLOSED sendouts extended to 11/21
Post by: kirstilynne on October 10, 2008 09:58:33 PM
i will agree turkeys are creepy. once we were at a barn party, all a bit tipsy, and a buddy was sleeping in his truck. some of the boys put a turkey in the truck and woke him up! there was poo everywhere. I dont like all chickens but at the local wildlife park there is this absoutely beautiful rooster that i love!

here he is!



pretty eh? he actually poses for photos. crazy thing.

here is a peacock at the same wildlife park:

I sort of forgot that chickens were birds. I wouldn't have added them to my list, but it never even crossed my mind!

I am no longer fond of turkeys at all. went to the wildlife park with my family today and a turkey pecked my bother on the bum, nipped at my nephews hand, ate a dime of mine that i dropped AND pecked me in the knee...

turkeys are not birds. they are little devils!

I'm looking around my bedroom and counting the birds I already have: an owl stuffie, owl candle, owl lamp, owls on my purse, songbirds on my jewelry rack, candle holder, incense burner, and throw pillow... this doesn't even include the birds I have on my jewelry and clothing! Yet I want more!  ;D

I also had a rather sad dream last night about the pet cockatiel I had until a year ago, who I was quite attached to...  :(

I have the large planned out and possibly the medium, and maybe the small.  I'm excited to get started but I have to get some supplies first.

I am already very inspired by my partner and I can't wait to get started.  What a great way to start the morning.

Post by: doyouloveanapple on October 16, 2008 12:29:03 PM
I just moved to a big city and who thought it would be HARDER to find supplies here than back "home"... maybe it's just that things are more spread out.



Title: Re: Birds are beautiful round 3 sign ups CLOSED sendouts extended to 11/21
Post by: NiinaMaria on October 16, 2008 12:51:19 PM
I am also very pleased with my partner. This swap is going to be so good!!!Ugh, I have to clean up here little bit so I can focus on
crafting better.

I'm glad that you like your partners.  It's my first time organizing and I want everything to run as smooth as possible.


I finished my small today.  I pretty much know what I'm going to do for the medium and the large, I just need to figure out what supplies I'll need.

I'm excited about my partner - she likes chickens!! I don't know why but I never thought of chickens when I was filling out my questionnaire! Anyway, I'm excited about getting to craft some chicken-y crafts, they are such funny birds  ;D

What a great swap already!

One project down, two to go. between two jobs, school, knitting projects and books to read... this is certainly the most fun thing on my to-do list.

Everyone else seems to be realizing how many amazing birds we couldn't list in our favorites. Which pretty much goes to show that all birds are beautiful. like the dodo, for example. and egret. and swan, and parrot.... I want to make a huge bird collage to depict them all!
but anyhoo... alive and crafting.
peas, kablam.

Everyone that has not checked in, please check in with your progress by wednesday oct. 22.  This will be our first check in date.

I just want to make sure everyone is still alive and crafting.



I started on my large and my medium.  And I have an extra in mind.

I just finished my large and now I have only my medium to go! Yay! This is so much fun! I don't know how Im going to wait until the 17th of November to send it out - I can't wait to see what my partner says  ;D

I'm jealous of you early starters.  I've already warned my partner that I have a big wedding this weekend.  Two of my best friends are getting married and I've kinda taken on the role of the wedding planner.  I have tons of birdy ideas right now, but I won't be able to get started on anything until after this weekend.  I can't wait to get started and I especially can't wait for the gallery.  Happy crafting everyone!

I've started my large, and mostly finished my small.. I just need to get all my supplies for my medium. I think I'll probably get lots done this weekend!

I can't wait to see the gallery too!

I need to get this done soon so I can start actually focusing on my grad school applications/ GRE's.... Darn crafting always being higher on my to do list! I feel your pain crescentfresh.

oh crafting time has been so/too limited to get anything started! I'm gonna panic if I don't have any days off next week, the boss is on vacation this week so hours are up at work!

 I know what I want to make, exactly what i want to make, and how i want to make it, all I need to do is find the time to make the things!

I feel you on that one! This week has been absolutely crazy for me, although I did get all of the materials I need!! So now all I have to do is start them sometime...Hopefully I'll have some time this weekend when I don't have classes every second of every day.   :-\

I've only got my medium left too - and Im still waiting on the materials! I wish they would hurry up - I guess thats what I get for ordering online  :P

You can send early if you want to, I'm sure your partner wont mind. :D

I probably will send a week early because being overseas, I want her to get it on time! I think airmail takes around a week to get there.

busy week for everyone I think. If I have ANY spare time once I finish writing this paper on greek philosophy, I will be brainstorming my large and small items (probably while at work!). good thing I got the first item(s)(?)(!!) out of the way immediately.
hip hip hooray for swapping! Nobody stress, swapping is fun! tra la la!

Well I've planned out my medium (probably medium, depending on how long it will take) and I'm gonna start it today. I should in theory finnish everything by the end of next week because its half term then, but we'll see!

My small will be finished as soon as I find my pinking shears, the others require shopping, but are planned out. I actually got TWO ideas from mother & baby magazine, of all places :)

Post by: sushiluvzombie on October 22, 2008 09:42:09 PM
i was stressing so much cause the materials i needed for my large were gonna be like $35+ so i thought i was gonna have to scrap that idea, but then just yesterday we got new, much cheaper versions of what i needed (i work at hobby lobby for those of you who know what that is) so hooray i can continue on with my plan for almost half the price! now it's just finding time to do everything that's the problem.

I've been sick for the last couple of days.  I haven't felt like crafting much, but I make sure that I at least craft 30 minutes a day.  I probably won't be working on my medium until I feel better.  I need scissors for that and I don't think its wise to use scissors after taking cough medicine. :D

Thanks mlheran! I keep adding to it too! I'm in love with wisting almost as much as crafting!

Hee hee.. Yes! Great Wist! I stole them before I figured out how to add the "add to wists" button on my browser. Thank you for your great items. Now I can't stop adding things!

It's so wonderful. So many of my friends are crafty and I can tell them to look on my wist for present ideas.

Love, doyouloveanapple.

Ps. I'm so excited to spend my weekend crafting!

Our next check in date will be wednesday october 29(which is my birthday!)

My large item is coming along great.  I have never done this craft so I am suprised that it is coming out so good. 


Just remember we only have a little over two weeks to send!!!

*spent all weekend crafting*

Mostly done the large. Bought all the supples for the medium (spent a bit more than I should have, but they were so pretty.. more on that later). Didn't touch the small, but I did get most of my Halloween costume done too. I think Halloween is going to take priority for the rest of the week.

Can't wait to see the final products of everyone's hard work!

Love, doyouloveanapple

I figured some other bird enthusiasts would enjoy my halloween hat I whipped up to wear while working tomorrow. it's got a little friend on it!  ;D







my mom is modeling the hat for me.
its a little witches hat i reconed to be more mother nature-y. can't go too all out for work becuase i need to actually be able to lift boxes and put stock out and wait on customers (retail...) so the hat is perfect. i also have a red scarf. :) isnt the little birdie cute? his wings are kinda translucent and have red glitter, and although it is hard to see he has a little nest of twigs in there.

This is sooo frustrating. I had done third of my large (meaning spent already 4 hours on it) when today I found another fabric which is much more prettier than the one I'm using now. Should I restart or use the material for something else? *tears of frustration*

Ps. Don't forget to vote for your favorite!

I'm done my small, and my medium. My large is mostly done I just need to buy one thing because the current supply I have is too small for the rest of the completed project *hopes she has been vague enough not to give anything away* I also have ideas for two very small extras, which I should have done this weekend.

Love, doyouloveanapple

My crafting is on hold till Monday. Tomorrow..First a job interview then shopping for my birthday, Saturday...preparing the party and then partying, Sunday...having a killer hangover. Which leaves me...6 days to finish my crafts. Should be enough.

On 16th, people can find me crafting through a haze of tears. No, seriously speaking...I am confident that my partner will like my package. Which will be finished on time.

I'm in a bit of a stress city. Loads of deadlines ganged up on me and i'm having to leave my poor birding craft on the sidelines. After Wednesday things should get a little easier.

I just sent a pm to everyone that has not sent yet.  If you didn't get a pm, you have either sent or I made a mistake.  The PM asked if anyone needs an extension. 

If you need an extension please pm me, if you don't please pm me to say you will be sending on time.

If enough people need an extension I will be willing to extend the send out date to November 21rst.

Bah I would have been done last week except I was crafting sitting cross legged on the floor (may or may not have involved a sewing machine on hardwood) and my back seized up. Ouch. Needless to say there was no more sitting on the hard floor until a visit to the chiropractor. Hopfully I'll get it done tomorrow.. right now I'm supposed to be working on a report for a deadline at work tomorrow. :) (much rather be crafting)

I had it in my head that the new send date was Monday.  I'm glad I checked this thread again and was reminded that it's actually Friday.  That could have been bad!

I ordered some stuff last week to get started on hippiejo's angel package but as you can imagine with Christmas, not everything has even gotten shipped yet.  I will start the second I receive the rest of my supplies, though!  I'm excited to begin.

And then I won't stop until I'm done!

OK, half finished with the large item.  Have 5 smalls complete and a medium to go, which I should be getting done tonight or tomorrow.  I have a headache right now, so I am not sure how much more _____ing I can stand.

I know that no one is reading this thread anymore.  I don't care! 

I just finished the medium angel item for hippiejo74, and now I have about 60% of the large finished.  I will not be finishing in time to send tomorrow (in fact, I have to work from morning to evening so I won't be able to make it to the post office anyway), but I should be fine to send on Monday!  :)

Yay!

Edited to add:

I loooooove the medium item I made today.  It turned out really well, I think, and I hope it is well-received!
