Some pretty cards, faerie napkins, a tink notebook and tooth fairy pillow, and some glittery mermaid stickers


A beautifully decorated notebook


Well, what do you know, IT'S A FAERIE THEMED COOKBOOK!!!!


A cute wall hanging, some faerie pins, and some crocheted clover pins


Cute little faeries on a toadstool!


Some little extras and a sweet note. Her daughters made me some stuff too! So sweet!


Four - count them - four - beautiful crocheted scarves and an adorable clutch! Barbara, I have to know where you got those tags you put on the scarves, they are adorable!


The lining of the clutch!


And finally, A FAERIE HUTCH!!! It's so amazingly gorgeous!


The inside of the hutch


And the back


Wow, that was a lot of pictures! I can't even begin to thank you Miss Barbara! This has been one of the funnest swaps I have ever been in! You really spoiled me! Hopefully I will get your package sent out real soon. Thank you so much!

Post by: LadybugsAndBumblebees on March 15, 2010 06:33:15 PM
 ;D  There needs to be a bigger grin icon to use!!!!  This is my most favorite part of the swap...the posting of photos!  Brunette Bombshell, I am SOOOOO glad you liked everything!  (To answer your question, that nifty tag I put on the scarf was from a website named 'Leafcutter Designs'.  The website for it is www.leafcutterdesigns.com)


Title: Re: For the love of Faeries swap Gallery!
Post by: Imagine on March 19, 2010 03:55:40 PM
This is really exciting!

Brunette Bombshell what a package! It's huge! I love the recipe book and the hutch!

I sent my package to Moxy Fire today. It's in a box with holes in it and, I didn't notice at first but, we can see part of the items. I thought the peep holes made nice teaser pics!  ;D







Unfortunately, we can't see the nicest item (in my opinion). Don't worry Moxy, there is purple and black somewhere in there!   ;)

Title: Re: For the love of Faeries swap Gallery!
Post by: LadybugsAndBumblebees on March 26, 2010 06:47:14 PM
 :D  I love it all, but I love the hair on the boy fairy!


Title: Re: For the love of Faeries swap Gallery!
Post by: Imagine on March 29, 2010 07:56:57 PM
I RECEIVED!! And I don't want to disappoint any of you, but it's absolutely the BEST package ever!  ;D

Ok first, I received it during the day, and when I got home, it was waiting for me on the little table by the entrance. My BF hadn't said anything!  :D It was all wrapped up and everything!


Here's the whole loot, still unwrapped:


Stickers:


Beautiful glass bead magnets, my favourite kind!:

And the box it was wrapped in had little dry flowers in it! (I've been wanting to do some paper lately, these are going in a batch for sure!):


Awesome plant decorations! (Can you believe it was Moxy's first poly clay project?!?!)


Here they are in action. The flower and the toadstool went into my peace lily. My bromelia needs much fairy dust as it is constantly on the verge of dying. So I put the fairy there to protect it, along with Lego Batman, who was already there.



Next, the awesome spoon wand. I've been wanting one of these for so long, and this one is so beautiful!


The details on the head:


The spoon was hand carved and decorated with buttons and a charms (how did you know I loved buttons? Did I tell you? I don't remember!)


So pretty and fun to play with!

And finally, a faerie catching kit!
The instructions, beautifully calligraphied (is that a word?):



And the box:


Which is actually... the most awesome fairy house! (The pictures absolutely not do it justice, it's really awesome!)

(I hadn't seen the table was upturned in this one)

Complete with four poster bed.

Dining table, mirror and feathery soft carpeting!

Ack! I already caught one!

jk! (It totally looks like one of my friends, haha!)

Thank you so much Moxy! You are so talented, I love everything you made me!!!

Wow! That faerie house is awesome!  Fabulous creation! And the polymer clay things are totally cool, don't look like your first attempt...awesome job!

Post by: jennilocker on March 29, 2010 08:33:01 PM
I LOVE the fairy house!!  What an adorable idea!!  Great package~!


Title: Re: For the love of Faeries swap Gallery!
Post by: Moxy Fire on March 29, 2010 09:14:29 PM
Here's what i got from imagine:

All of it laid out including the pretty card that i will frame for my bathroom


The crown - made with real twigs and wired with beads


In action on my messy post-work hair - I have some fabric that i bought a couple of years ago to make an autumn fairy costume and i think this gave me the inspiration i needed to make something out of it (and a perfect accessory)


The adorable pin cushion with her needlework


A metal wand adorned with wire, shell beads, bells and leather strapping (it must have been so difficult to drill those holes!!)


And the crowning item my silly wool fairy slippers (i'm wearing them right now - super toasty)




Thank you so much imagine i loved my package and it definitely gave me that crafty pick-me-up i needed!! :D


Title: Re: For the love of Faeries swap Gallery!
Post by: Ffrogg526 on March 30, 2010 02:55:03 AM
I love those slippers!  I will be wisting those when I get to my own computer and a normal internet hook-up!  And that fairy house is just adorable!  Both of those packages are really great!  Can't wait to see what else is created for this swap!   ;D


Title: Re: For the love of Faeries swap Gallery!
Post by: Radmom on March 30, 2010 04:36:25 AM
Oh I so agree about Wisting those slippers. I am using the family net book because we just moved into our first house. Mac still not in use. Loving them hardcore.

Title: Re: For the love of Faeries swap Gallery!
Post by: Demi_Kitten on March 30, 2010 10:51:13 AM
I love those spoons, I really want to do a swap but I'm at uni and don't want to risk not getting something off in time, I'd feel terrible letting everyone down. Hopefully this summer I can do something...I'm so gonna wist a spoon...once I set up a wist account lol.


Title: Re: For the love of Faeries swap Gallery!
Post by: jennilocker on March 30, 2010 05:52:18 PM
Ok ladies, this is the best package ever!  Starmumplus has outdid herself and EVERYONE will be wisting everything that she has made!  We did extras and oh boy! She is an AMAZING seamstress!
Now onto the fairy goodness!!!!!!!!!!!

First up is the large.  It is a beautiful fairy/hippy skirt.  I wish there was a close up of the awesome detail in the hemline. BEAUTIFUL!!!


This is the adorable owl rattle that she made for my daughter who LOVES it!  Actually, so do I so she may not get to play with it ;)

This is the coolest journal that I can add paper to, because she made it to be refillable!
What is that adorable little bear next to the journal you ask?  Why he is a smiggle that asked to go on a looooong trip, so Starmumplus sent him to me!

The next awesome thing was this beautiful toilet paper (loo) roll holder that was on my wist....She didn't stop there...she embroidered it with a beautiful dancing fairy!!!

The cutest thumbtacks made from self covered buttons! And some freestanding lace owls that she embroidered!!


Yummy candy....There are little mushrooms and some twigs that she got off the fairies candy tree!!

And the cutest headband for my daughter that you will see in an action shot at the end!

Now for the extras!!!!!!!!!!!!!

CLOTH NAPPIES GALORE!!!!  When she told me that she made them and would include some as extras...I had NO idea that they would be this AMAZING or this MANY!!  WOW!!  A group shot:


Check out the one that she personalized for my daughter Zoe!!
2-fitted made from cotton flannel polar fleece with a hidden booster of cotton flannel and bamboo.
2- one size pocket nappies
2-one size covers
1- minky one size cover with Zoe on the bum.
3- cotton terry boosters
4 flannel boosters
1- baby terry and bamboo booster
4-microfleece liners
2 washcloths
and a wet bag for going out.
(she included a pamplet from Aus on modern cloth nappies and said for more info I could go to www.ozeclothnappies.org/info.html)

I cannot begin to thank her enough for everything and now have total swap guilt because there is no way that I can compete with her beautiful package.  Again I thank you for your kindness, generosity, and talent!  What a lovely fairy you are.

Now a few actions shots....don't forget to check out the headband on that cute little head.

check out that adorable bum!

Post by: Wulf on March 30, 2010 06:18:03 PM
Wow, great stuff here. I'm definitely not missing out on the next one. And what can you say about little Zoe? One cute baby trumps all fabulous fairy trinkets! (Though the fairy house is a very close second!)

Post by: Imagine on March 30, 2010 07:28:03 PM
Wow, that is one humongous loot! I love the embroidery on the tp holder! And the push pins are so cute!


Title: Re: For the love of Faeries swap Gallery!
Post by: starmumplus on March 30, 2010 10:24:09 PM
Im so happy you like it the journal it was my first attempted at doing collage (?) and thous mushrooms are one of my favorite sweets at the moment   


Title: Re: For the love of Faeries swap Gallery!
Post by: jennilocker on March 31, 2010 04:43:32 AM
Oh, sadly those mushrooms are all in my belly......soooooo yummy!  And you did great with the collage!  It was all so beautiful.  And Zoe wore her headband yesterday and 2 people said that it was the prettiest headband they have ever seen.  And the diapers are working out GREAT!  We LOVE them!  I can't believe that I was scared of them, but then I had NO idea how convenient they were now with the snaps and inserts!  You have converted this family to cloth nappies!


Title: Re: For the love of Faeries swap Gallery!
Post by: woodland_faerie on March 31, 2010 06:15:05 AM
No wonder faeries have such a thing for human babies i would steal yours right up too! lol maybe your baby is a faerie changeling she is so pretty! Yay for cloth diapers! I loved them too! (so did my boys bottum!) They are very friendly to the environment which in turn are friendly to the faeries! I love the tp holder and what are the mushrooms made of gummie? lol they look interesting and the faerie candy what is that?


Title: Re: For the love of Faeries swap Gallery!
Post by: jennilocker on March 31, 2010 06:24:59 AM
Please don't steal my baby!  ;) Ha ha ... The mushrooms were this yummy chewy marshmallow-y rasberry goodness...mmmm... and the twigs are a fruity hard candy, that is super yummy! I'm pretty sure starmumplus made the twigs herself!  I am so in LOVE with the diapers!  If we had had any clue how far they have come since the pre-folds we would have been doing it from day one!  I can't believe that by just seeing how cute they were managed to get my fiance on board with the cloth diapers, since he was SOOOOO against it when Zoe was born. They absolutely are easy and just as fast to change as disposables....and there is nothing gross like that weird gel in disposables...and you can't run outta diapers cause they're reuseble....ok, I'll shut up...I'm just super excited.  And now I have to go hide my baby. :D


Title: Re: For the love of Faeries swap Gallery!
Post by: LadybugsAndBumblebees on March 31, 2010 12:20:34 PM
 :-*  Your baby is ADORABLE!  And I do love all the different ways that people interpreted this theme and came up with all the different ideas!  I do love that fairy house too, and wish I had thought to make a spoon wand...what a nifty idea!


Title: Re: For the love of Faeries swap Gallery!
Post by: Moxy Fire on March 31, 2010 08:11:29 PM
Thant toilet paper holder is a neat idea and i love the embroidery on it.

For those of you that haven't seen it, i got the idea for the wooden spoon wand from Knickertwist here:
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=253250.0 (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=253250.0)

Post by: jennilocker on April 07, 2010 07:33:12 AM
On a side note about the apron and napkins.... she wisted cake decorating items so I thought it would be nice to have a cupcake fairy theme for the kitchen items!   


Title: Re: For the love of Faeries swap Gallery!
Post by: LadybugsAndBumblebees on April 07, 2010 02:19:35 PM
 ;D :o  I received from Brunette Bombshell today!  Unfortunately, I am having difficulty posting photos to Craftster, but my partner said she would post them for me (thank you sooo much), but I just have to give a description of all the thoughtful, generous, beautiful items she gave me:

1)  She had her mom make me a LARGE sugar egg (yes, a candy egg) that is lavender and decorated with colored flowers...inside the egg is a fairy, a unicorn, two butterflies, many flowers, grass, and the inside of the top of the egg is decorated to look like the sun! 

2)  A BIG "Fairyland" book with all sorts of fairy pictures to color!  (A coloring book for adults-YES!) 

3)  An EXQUISITE brass/bronze toned lantern with patterned glass.  Brunette Bombshell decorated the top with moss.  When you open the lantern, she decorated the inside with moss, different types of flowers, pearls, and a red-haired fairy with blue dotted/black wings...and the fairy is REMOVABLE!

4)  Tinkerbell lollipop rings

5)  Two flower pins...these are really nifty!  She took cream colored petals from a silk flower and glued(?) them one on top of another (differing patterns/shades/sizes) and added a button on top with a pin back attachment on the back.  The other pin is a rust shade.  I can't wait to wear them!  What a great idea!

(I'll have to add another "reply" the computer is not letting me type more....


Title: Re: For the love of Faeries swap Gallery!
Post by: LadybugsAndBumblebees on April 07, 2010 02:28:59 PM
 :D :-*  Here I am again!

6)  In the box were three paper bags that had Disney fairies on them.  One was for me, and one each for my two daughters.  The girls' bags each had: two chocolate lollipops that were homemade (!) fairy-themed, and very intricate, a fairy themed coloring pad, and unicorn chocolate.  Mine had:  a beautiful card/envelope set, two of those wonderful chocolate lollipops, some chocolate unicorns, and a little book of Tinkerbell stickers!

7)  A flower crown made with different colored flowers for each of my girls!  They were thrilled, and are laying on the kitchen floor right now, with all their goodies, and the crowns on their heads!

8)  A silver/amber bead colored 'Tree of Life' pendant!  I have wanted one of these SOOOOO BAAADDDD!  (And the necklace part is long, which means it will fit my fat neck!  :P)

9)  A silvertone fairy charm bracelet, with a ribbon running thru it!  The charms are:  a crescent moon with a fairy sitting on it, a mushroom, a unicorn, a fairy , and a ladybug!  ;D

10)  A clear glass "wishing ball" with glitter and tons of tiny origami stars inside!  I don't know how she knew I so much wanted one of these, but I did, and I am sooooo happy!

(Here we go again with the computer...one last post, and I'll be done....


Title: Re: For the love of Faeries swap Gallery!
Post by: LadybugsAndBumblebees on April 07, 2010 02:32:11 PM
 :) :-*  Last post, I promise!

11)  A book in which the pages were removed.  Inside, she attached fabric, and made it into a really creative crochet hook holder.  On the outside, you can tell how much work and time and effort and thought went into decorating this.  It is decopauged with exquisite flower stickers, unusual fairy pictures, text from a book, ladybug, dragonfly, and butterfly stickers....it is georgous!  The book ties shut with ribbons.

I am amazed and speechless!  I am going to PM Brunette Bombshell right now so she can post pics!

I got my package a few days ago and just now got time to take pics and post! Sorry it took so long, guys. I love the unique and one of a kind gifts I got in my package! Thanks aisy, it was great! (Also, how did you stuff everything into that tiny tiny box? You must teach me the art of packing... Onto pictures.

K, here's the big item! Seriously, the way she packed was genius. A cute, bright fairy shirt with fairy wings on the back!

Second item, a super adorable tiny box with stickers on it, hand painted and decorated to look like a little cake! Sweet.

Favorite item EVER! He's now guarding my bookshelf.

By the way, I still need a name for my new little gnome, any suggestions?

A colorful headband with flowers and buttons!

Two more hair thingies! I love them both. The black one looks pretty elegant when I wear it and the blue one makes me happy. :)

A very sweet purple flower ring with an adorable red button in the middle. I really like how unique and simple it is!

Here's another view.

And jewelry galore!

Love the feather ones. Their so cute.
I would post a pic of me with/wearing some of the stuff but it's late and I have ginormous bags under my eyes at the moment.
So thanks aisy for the awesome swap we did together! I enjoyed swapping with you, making items for you and getting stuff from you!

Brunette_Bombshell - you out-did yourself.  That is an amazing package.  Great work! 

I don't have the DCN for MadGypsy's package here in Atlanta with me and I forgot to save the PM to my mailbox so I have no way of checking to see if it got there or not.  I mailed it Monday so it should be getting there today or tomorrow.   :D  I can't wait for her to get it!  Now...  someone wave your magic wand or snap your fingers and make the mail move faster! ;)

I received from woodland_faerie today and she just went so far above and beyond for this swap; my jaw dropped when I opened the box.

She sent me a gorgeous faerie illustration, complete with customized frame; a butterfly in resin; an absinthe spoon with a holed rock - two great ways to see faeries ;) and an incredibly impressive art doll. She also sent a fabric patch with a satyr illustration that my DH spirited off before I could photograph it.
So pictures:

The details on the dryad really take my breath away. She has not yet told me her name but you can click through the pictures to my Flickr gallery to see that she was a very good model. She definitely knows what makes her look good and was not shy in telling me what to do!

Thank you, thank you woodland_faerie! I'm completely bowled over by the awesomeness of your work!

MadGypsy...  any ideas when you might post pictures of the package I sent you?   I have a few but I don't think they're very good so I was wondering if you might be posting soon.   :D  I always like to see the pictures that other people take and post of the package I sent them:-D


Title: Re: For the love of Faeries swap Gallery!
Post by: Ffrogg526 on April 13, 2010 06:16:09 PM
Here are some pictures of the goodies I sent MadGypsy.  There's only one thing I forgot to photograph and that's the frog friend I made to start her Fairy Garden.

These are pictures of the Fairy Treasure Box.  It used to be a cigar box (loooooong time ago - doesn't smell like cigars anymore).






Polymer Clay Dryad.  I glued it to a wooden plaque but I don't have a picture of that.


A better picture of the Dryad's face.


She asked for some wall art so I did my best to accomidate.




Polymer Clay mushrooms


Happy Fairy Door.

Since the swap is winding down I just wanted to take a chance to say THANK YOU to woodland_faerie for taking the time and creativity to organize such a wonderful swap!  I can't imagine how much time it took you to pair everyone up and keep up with all of us!  So thank you!  This was a wonderful swap experience filled with the most creativity and magic that I have seen.

No worries MadGypsy!  However, I did forget to post the pillow.  :o  There's a nice long pillow that I made with three Amy Brown Faries on it...  and I totally forgot to post it.  Maybe tonight when I get home.  Or when MadGypsy gets to it.   :D  I can't believe I forgot that...  it was one of my favorite things to make!   :o

Title: Re: For the love of Faeries swap Gallery!
Post by: MadGypsy on April 14, 2010 07:00:32 PM
So sorry it has taken me ages to post these But as promised, here they are   ;D ;D



this gorgeous Fairy box. Seriously gorgeous, guys. There are so many lovely colors on this thing. It so totally my style  ;D


This adorable little frog fairy friend and a fairy door. I love this little frog! I am going to name him Riddle.  :D


and a mushroom ARMY!!! How great is that?! I love these little guys! They were so much fun to open.  They seemed like they would never end!  :D


These beautiful painted stars! I asked for wall stuff and she sure delivered  ;D The burgundy one is my favorite!


This awesome dyrad wall hanging! So pretty. I love the tiny little roots.


And how awesome is this pillow? Somehow Ffrogg knew that I have an Amy Brown comforter on my bed and made me a pillow in MATCHING COLORS! The fairies must have told her!   :D

Also I gotta mention, Ffrogg was thoughtful enough to make this pillow extra snuggly. Not only is it perfect for squeezing the hell out of, but its awesome for beating my DH in the head with  :D

and last, but CERTAINLY not least:

A scoodie from my wist!! This *almost* makes me sad that winter is over lol But I'm excited for next year for sure  :D

I love that tassel so much  ;D Excuse the errant dreadlock hanging down lol  :D

Thank you so so much!! Everything is so great! I can't wait for you to receive your package, I sent it out this morning!!!  ;D

Prepare your wisting fingers!  The goodies I got from MadGypsy are soooo amazing!


The pots are paper with flower seeds in them!  That would be amazing to know how to make...  like I REALLY need another craft to do.  :)


An absolutely amazing fairy door!


This seems to be a rather unassuming box...  it says "a touch of magic" and has a fairy above that but then...  you open it and find.....

This BEAUTIFUL pendant directly from my wist! I love it!  I have to find some cord to put it on so I can wear it to the Renaissance Festival in Atlanta at the end of May.



This is amazing!  I love it!  I just need to find a great picture to put in it!  maybe a fairy sighting...   ;)


Fairy wings for my hair!  These are amazing!  I love them!


This is a fairy bookmark!  Really beautiful!  But I have a few bookmarks that I use that have sentimental value...  so more than likely she'll become a plant guardian...  As you see here, she's taken to the herbs already.


Finally, she sent me Minuet

She is the most beautiful music fairy!


She told MadGypsy that she wanted a new home...  her home in the fairy ring was nice and she would miss her friends but she needed a kindred music soul.  So she came to live with me!  I would take her to school to keep watch over the music room but I'm very afraid that my students would inadvertantly break her that would be very sad.  So she'll keep watch over my space at home.


As you can see, she bares her treble clef for all to see!


I love her hair!  Its a touch darker than my own but beautiful and she has ribbons in it!

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you MadGypsy!!!  This package is AMAZING!

Post by: MadGypsy on April 24, 2010 09:06:52 AM
 ;D ;D Minuet looks quite happy in her new home. Im so glad you love everything. After I got your package I was worried that I didn't make enough! I'd love to tell you how to make the flower seed paper but I didn't actually make those lol. They were from valentines that I rescued from a thrift store. The wings on the hair clip and on Minuet were made with Fantasy Film, also called Angelina Film. That stuff is heat reactive and so very fun to play with. But I love any craft that lets you play with fire  :D

Also, that frame was sort of designed to be horizontal so that's why I added dangles to the sides. If it stands upright though and you like it like that then awesome :)

Also also (lol) I laughed so very hard while I was working on Minuet, while folding the paper for her ruffles, I realized that the sheet music ephemera I had managed to get my hands on was accordion music. But when I told the story to my husband, my mother, my roommate, no one thought it was funny. Maybe you crafters will see the humor in that  ;) :D


Title: Re: For the love of Faeries swap Gallery!
Post by: Ffrogg526 on April 24, 2010 04:38:49 PM
My friend and I and my mother totally see the humor in that!  I would have also have laughed very hard to find myself making accordian with accordian music.   ;D  But she is very beautiful...  she's currently sitting on the kitchen table because she needed some surgery.  She lost an ear in her travels that needed to be repaired but now she is feeling much better. 

After I got your package I was afraid that my crafting wasn't good enough.  But I"m glad that you like everything!  And I love everything you sent me!  I just need to find a cord for the pendant so I can wear it!   ;D

Thanks again!!!

I finally got around to taking pictures and repairing the couple items that broke in transit. This is my package I received from MoonRaven. There was a sewing machine cover, some yarn, candle holder, faery wand, crochet cloths, a box with a charm, and a faery terrarium.

A picture of everything together:



The sewing machine cover:



The saying on the cover says "A friend is someone who reaches for your hand and touches your heart" I love the colors of the fabric. It matches the blue walls that are in my bedroom/craft space.

Faery terrarium with flying faery:



Faery wand and crochet cloths:



Candleholder:



Faery box and butterfly charm:




Thanks so much MoonRaven!

I finally recieved my awesome package :D International shipping can be a pain. But wow, was this an awesome package.

First off the entire box:

Then a pile of magnets and pins with images from Omnia (my favorite band), Victoria frances and Brian Froud.


A Narnia binder, I love Narnia but it's nearly impossible to find cool stuff here in the Netherlands. An Omnia cd-pouch and a green man mask for Larp :D


Some more extra's; soap, a fairy keychain, and two traditional New zealand gifts.


A scarf, her very first one, it's incredibly soft, and so nice.


Three lovely little fearies she made, which are now sitting with my collection of witches :D


And last but not least, my by far favorite item. A sewing kit, that I can take along to faires and events. It's decorated and she even painted the faun and the fairy on it herself!




Thank you sooooo much, I love everything.

woodland_faerie asked my to post some photos of what I made for her because the corset needs a little fixing up before she can take some action photos. I did a post on the clothing board so you can see the stuff here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=344298.0 (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=344298.0)

Also, the dryad finally told me her name...well, a name that I can call her anyway! She's Melia :)
