OMG!!!!  astrangeone, you are so freaking talented!!!!!!!!  I was on my way to the PO and before I got there, I stopped at my mailbox ( we have the big box for the street at the end of the road) My son got this handmade stamp of Master Chief from Halo.  It is so amazingly detailed!!!!!!

It came in this cute little box, which I think I'm gonna have to keep for myself ;D

I can't believe how perfect it is!  Thank you so much and Quenton LOVES it!!  he was shocked at how well it was made and that HE got something in one of my swaps!!

Now, astrangeone and I did decide on extras and you NEED to also see my goodies here https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=336691.msg4092183#msg4092183

astrangeone, if you ever feel like sending to the US, you and I may have to have a little personal swap.  I'm so jealous of everyone who has one (or in mama24boyz' case 2) of your stamps!!!  the detail in these is amazing!!!!!!!!!!!

I might be persuaded to do so by your amazing needlework stuff!  I actually can't wait to see what your partner gets in this swap!

Hehehehe...I'm back to playing Spirit Tracks on the DS.

Post by: EmBem on June 19, 2010 09:06:24 AM
Thank you so much ecogeek*  ;D
I love the charm bracelet/earrings set you sent me!
:D


I tried to get pictures of the individual charms, but I am not so good at using my mom's camera (I lost my charger for my camera)... but here is the most clear overview without needing to squint for my lack of photo-knowledge.
Clockwise from midnight: peach's crown, chomp chomp, zelda triforce, tetris t-block, and squirtle.
I adore this bracelet; I want to wear it all the time! :D


The second part was some matching earrings.
Tetris L-blocks!
:D They're too adorable.

Again, thanks so much ecogeek* I hope you like your tiny thing as much as I love mine!


Title: Re: OTVGT or One Tiny Video Game Thing Gallery!!!
Post by: Lady Lovecraft on June 19, 2010 10:01:09 AM
I love the incorporation of multiple video games. Haha the blurry picture of the earrings make them look like.... oh well.. never mind. Awesome jewelry set.

I'm not sure what's happened to my partner, so I'm going to put up these pictures.  I got a lovely message from her when she received but I've not seen her since.  I hope you're alright, unimatrix-0.


I went for a similar idea to mama24boyz, except I can't crochet for love nor money.


It's a chikorita for those of you who don't know (and this was me until I got partnered up).  The best part of this craft was getting coveredin glue.  The worst part was getting that ABBA song sung in my head.

I am loving this gallery!


Title: Re: OTVGT or One Tiny Video Game Thing Gallery!!!

Post by: Krafty_Karasu on June 25, 2010 11:42:00 AM
MAY I HAVE YOUR ATTENTION PLEASE!

just a reminder that sendouts are Monday, so if you think you're going to be late, please let me and your partner know.

second, I would also like to remind everyone to please send a PM to your partner AND ME when you send and receive.

third, I have made updates to the sent/received list on the first page of the gallery, and if you see a mistake (like you sent me a message saying that you received but I didn't make your name blue), please let me know!

now, let's get back to crafting!  I can't wait to see everything!!!!!!!


Title: Re: OTVGT or One Tiny Video Game Thing Gallery!!!
Post by: IdlersDesign on June 25, 2010 12:16:11 PM
Love the pokéball (is it papier maché, my new discovered technique?) and chikorita!


Title: Re: OTVGT or One Tiny Video Game Thing Gallery!!!
Post by: avocadoeldorado on June 25, 2010 12:30:17 PM
Yup, it's papier mache.  It was a new technique for me, too (unless you count art lessons in primary school!) so it came out a little crooked.  I LOVED your mask, btw.


Title: Re: OTVGT or One Tiny Video Game Thing Gallery!!!
Post by: astrangeone on June 25, 2010 07:27:56 PM
Awwwww...it's a cute little chikorita!  (*spits*  I "hated' the new Pokemon.)  I guess you made me change my mind?

We all do the things we are inspired by:  I love paper mache - although it doesn't love me back.  *has memories of laundry day and explaining paste to my parents*


Title: Re: OTVGT or One Tiny Video Game Thing Gallery!!!
Post by: Chelsea K on June 25, 2010 07:45:18 PM

Title: Re: OTVGT or One Tiny Video Game Thing Gallery!!!
Post by: beckashell on June 25, 2010 07:56:44 PM
My paper mache never makes a perfect circle! My last pinata was an oval shaped soccer ball...
I'm in awe. And so nervous about my OTT after seeing that! It's amazing.


Title: Re: OTVGT or One Tiny Video Game Thing Gallery!!!
Post by: BunnieBard on June 27, 2010 08:45:45 AM
Weeeeell.... I know my partner got her package... and I know she's not going to be able to take a very good picture because of the glass...

...and I have a nice picture without the glass. So... Here's what I made!  :)



What is a ghost's favorite time of day? Boo o'Clock!  ;D This was my second time cross-stitching ever, and I think it turned out pretty good! If it wasn't so time-consuming, I'd totally be addicted to it now, it's super fun!


Title: Re: OTVGT or One Tiny Video Game Thing Gallery!!!
Post by: IdlersDesign on June 27, 2010 08:51:32 AM

Title: Re: OTVGT or One Tiny Video Game Thing Gallery!!!

Yeah, I think this week's 40% off Joann's coupon might be spent on plastic cross-stitching canvas.  ;) My yarn stash already has every color ever, and bigger=faster, right? Or at least not as POINTYSTABBY as needles.

lol.  yeah, you're right about that.  ;)  plastic canvas needles typically are rounded, but that's not my luck.  the only one I have is just as pointy as any other needle, except now the tip is bent.  that was my stupid fault.  ::)

So I got home from visiting my sister in the hospital for the last three weeks to find my package from Krafty Karasu! Yay! We discussed our love for Silent hill and she made me this awesome cross stitch in a really neat silent hill frame! I love it!







Title: Re: OTVGT or One Tiny Video Game Thing Gallery!!!
Post by: Krafty_Karasu on June 27, 2010 07:09:02 PM
all tea-dyed.  yes, that is tea-dyed TISSUE PAPER on the frame.  I usually use tissue paper when I decorate things like this because I love the look of it, but I couldn't find any in a suitable Silent Hill-ish color, so I used some tea to dye it.  I did the same thing to the Aida cloth I stitched on.  ;D  I don't know if you can smell tea anymore, but by the time I was done with it, all I could smell was glue and paint.  O_o

I'm glad that you like it.  ;D

Post by: Krafty_Karasu on June 27, 2010 07:26:48 PM
I'm sure it will go away...eventually.  :D  I didn't think it smelled too bad.  it's black tea, so that may be why it's a little stronger.

only dye tissue paper if you REALLY need a certain color that can't be bought and if you have a lot of patience.  it would get stuck to itself, tear, what have you...I had to make up the tea in a BIG bowl and do the tissue paper chunk by chunk.  I think the largest piece was probably 4 inches, and a sheet of tissue paper is a LOT bigger than that.  I ended up using a whole sheet too.  I'm glad I did so much because the color of the frame kept showing through, and I couldn't have that.  silver doesn't quite fit in the rusted, blood-stained world of Silent Hill.  ;)

Post by: mama24boyz on June 27, 2010 08:41:07 PM
Everyones stuff looks great!!  Does the paper mache open?  And I totally agree with you guys, cross stitch is VERY addictive.  I took a few years break from it, but just made a couple little things and now I can't get enough!  I haven't bought a x stitch mag in years and since I restarted a couple months ago I think I've bought 3!! :D


Title: Re: OTVGT or One Tiny Video Game Thing Gallery!!!
Post by: Krafty_Karasu on June 27, 2010 09:04:47 PM
I used to cross stitch a tiny bit, then I gave it up.  but something made me pick it up again.  it was a swap, I know that, I just don't remember which one.  :-\  now I'm doing far more intricate stuff than I used to.  I mean HELLO!  I went from doing little simple things to making needlebooks.  :D

Ahh! I love all the cross stitches so much! I really need to learn how to do it.

Post by: Krafty_Karasu on June 27, 2010 09:53:24 PM
I used to cross stitch a tiny bit, then I gave it up.  but something made me pick it up again.  it was a swap, I know that, I just don't remember which one.  :-\  now I'm doing far more intricate stuff than I used to.  I mean HELLO!  I went from doing little simple things to making needlebooks.  :D

I love your xstitch - it's all so lovely!

thank you much.  ;D  the only things I don't like about cross stitch is:
1.  jabbing myself when I'm not paying attention
2.  having to rip sections apart because I'm not paying attention
3.  how long it seems to take when you're doing a fill-in of a single color.

I made something for another swap that had a LOT of solid coloring, and I was ready to cry!  but I got through it.  ;)

Weeeeell.... I know my partner got her package... and I know she's not going to be able to take a very good picture because of the glass...

...and I have a nice picture without the glass. So... Here's what I made!  :)



What is a ghost's favorite time of day? Boo o'Clock!  ;D This was my second time cross-stitching ever, and I think it turned out pretty good! If it wasn't so time-consuming, I'd totally be addicted to it now, it's super fun!

YAY!! Thanks for posting a photo. I was about to send you a PM because I can't find my memory card for my camera and my cell phone is not liking the glass on the clock.

Thank you so much for it! I love it and so did the boyfriend. =)

Does the paper mache open?

Yes, it opens.  I took a third picture of the chikorita poking out of the ball like a freshly hatched egg, but this annoyed my pokemon playing girlfriend (apparently they don't come out like that) so I left it out of the pictures. 

Love the little crosstitch.

what game are the necklaces from? I feel that I should know but I don't... :P

schnerby - where did you get the beads? I love the colours. I can only ever find the little kids packs which isn't useful for anything I want to make.

Those are awesome fusebeads! If they are too big for necklaces you could hot glue magnets to the back and put them on the fridge!


Title: Re: OTVGT or One Tiny Video Game Thing Gallery!!!
Post by: schnerby on June 29, 2010 06:49:28 PM
Yep, I was thinking the magnet idea, too.

Tabiecat asked for perler bead jewelry, but I had no idea how to make it. I went with this idea and figured they could work as magnets.

I hadn't worked with the beads before, so I ordered some off ebay and had a play with them. The learning curve will be steep! The seller is Australian based, so Beckashell, you might be able to find them on ebay Australia. It's the only seller that sells beads by individual colour. If you can't find them I'll look later (at work ATM).

it's really nice when you can find the colors individually.  then you can buy (for instance) as much black as you want, because that's usually the color you run out of first.  or maybe that's just me.  ;)

My black is always the first to go as well :) Probably because I use it to outline everything...

I received from crafty_one and I love it sooooo much! I'll post pictures when they finish uploading. THANKYOU! I hope that mine arrived today as well.  Gotta love in country sending~!! :D

Here he is.... my SHYGUY!  :D :D
Crafty_one made up the pattern herself. I'm in awe.

Sorry the photos are a bit blurry, the lighting inside isn't too good at night.

LOOK BEHIND YOU!  A THREE-HEADED MONKEY.


There are probably only about five people on this planet who would be as excited as I am about this guy. I am a MASSIVE Monkey Island fan (probably even an 'enthusiast', ugh) and I cling to anything and everything to do with the game.  This three-headed monkey was made without a pattern so that means he's the first of his kind (except for the original one, of course) making me feel even more lucky to have received him.


I'm still not sure whether I want to attatch a pin to him and have him as a badge or just keep him as he is here.  Hmm, decisions.  Anyway, thank you SO much, Unimatrix-0.  I'm super pleased with him.

Aw he's so cuuuute! I could never figure out how to crochet amiguri shapes. >_<

I couldnt either, until I realised that I was looking at it the wrong way, its just simple double crochet (or sc if you;re american XD ) in rounds- the only complicated thing is keeping track of where the next row should start- and putting in a 'guide' thread of a different colour is so simple!! :D
i wish I had started with ami instead of granny squares! (I made a huge blanket in the shape of sprite link as my first project!)

as a huge video game enthusiast, there were actually a lot of games on everyone's lists that I wasn't familiar with.  I've heard of the Monkey Island series, but I've never actually played any of them.  ;)

I received a beautiful package from Lanysmiles today!

First of all a lovely stuffed pouch:


And on the front is that....?

Katamari!! (embroidered  :o !)

The colours are very happy and fresh and as it's so thick, I might just be tempted to use it a a pin cushion, so I can see and use it (almost) every day  ;)

We agreed on sending an extra item for our dear game loving partners and she made a lovely sackboy for my boyfriend:

https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=336691.0

And for us and our little son some souvenirs from Eire, thank you!

Post by: beckashell on July 02, 2010 05:47:35 AM
My partner is a little busy since school holidays have just started so I said that i'd post photos of what I made her. Unfortunately I just realised that my photos aren't very good. So Crafty_one, feel free to post good ones.

Since her favourite thing EVER is pacman I just had to go with that theme. It was my first time doing all of these crafts. So i'm a little proud.

I made a "PACMAN SURVIVAL KIT". And of course didn't take a photo of the list that explained the items inside the kit...  :P

First up, the survival kit box. It's about 4" x 3".


When you "break" the glass, inside the kit you find:

1. An emergency fruit stash for bonus pacman points
A magnetic tic tac toe with pacmen and fruits/snacks.


2. Spare computer keyboard arrows, incase they break after playing the game for too long.


3. A Blinky ghost voodoo doll - to slow him down and maybe even stop him chasing you!
A needlebook with Blinky inside. You stab the needles through his body.

Inside


4. Strategy planner - to be used when planning modes of attack against the ghosts.
Stamp - one side a ghost, one side pacman


Everything you need to survive and win at Pacman!!  :D
Although I doubt this kit would help me. Pacman hates me.

Post by: Krafty_Karasu on July 02, 2010 10:24:48 AM
I received!!!!!!!!  ;D

looky!!!




a Silent Hill scene!!!  I love it!!  on the bottom it says "a tubbypaws blocky 3d paper happy fun model tribute to the foggy fog game, the second one, the one with the pillow...".  ;D  I just love it.

she sent me a second one, but I didn't feel right posting them both here, so I put it in the personal swap gallery (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=336691.msg4118015#msg4118015)

thank you achgfd!!!

Post by: achgfd on July 02, 2010 12:08:20 PM
No problem! I love working with paper! I was afraid they would get crinkled in the box, but they turned out great! Did you notice the room number? eerie! and her descriptions are the best.


Title: Re: OTVGT or One Tiny Video Game Thing Gallery!!!
Post by: Krafty_Karasu on July 02, 2010 12:16:49 PM
no, I didn't see the room number until you mentioned it.  302 (http://silenthill.wikia.com/wiki/Room_302).  oh dear god.  *shudder*  it may not have been meant to be a Silent Hill game originally, but that was one of the freakiest Silent Hill games (Silent Hill 4: The Room for those who don't know the significance of that number) I have ever played.

this is one of the pictures from the page that's linked to 302 above.  it's another happening that I don't ever remember seeing when I played the game: http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20090827080441/silent/images/a/a5/RobbieSh4.jpg

I love Robbie and I love my little scenes!!!

side note: room 502 (http://search.yahoo.com/search;_ylt=AgxyvswXm0vjbFOjz_DiOD.bvZx4?p=room+502&toggle=1&cop=mss&ei=UTF-8&fr=yfp-t-701) may have made a bigger impact.  it was a room used in Silent Hill: 0rigins, but it has much more infamous, real life history. ;)

oh dear.  this is what she had to say on her website about Silent Hill 2, "This is my new little paper tribute, this time to my favourite walking about in the fog game by Konami. Silent Hill 2 is one of tubbypaws’ number 1 games and I always play every time I am worried that I have brought too much cuteness into the world."

"too much cuteness into the world.  LOL!!!!!!!  she's great!!!!

Thanks beckashell for posting pics for me, as she mentioned my 3 kids are home on school holidays and they seem to have no concept of "mum time" lol. They keep me incredibly busy!

beckashell did a awesome job on everything she sent me, I love it all and the whole survival kit idea is so cool. I will get some extra pics and post them today. It's hard to pick a favourite from everything she made and I feel SO spoiled and lucky to have had her as a partner. ;D ;D

And in room 312 is the one where you watch the video tape in SH2. I think that would have made more sense. And she does do a lot of cute things.

That pokemon cork board is awesome! I love the growlithe pin! I just signed up for the pokemon swap! That gives me some inspiration!

Ain't he sweet? She handsewed him. Love  ;D He can be friends with my crochet Mario I got from Kwiltykate recently.



Tabiekat also sent a sweet clay Goomba - but Mario kept jumping on his head to get a gold coin and 100 points. So naughty!


(Apologies for the crappy lighting. It's dark when I leave home and dark when I get home. Weekend = better pics.Goomba currently looks like a black blob with my camera...)

I'm going to go ahead and post pictures of what I sent, although the pictures are kind of bad since I finished my project right before I left home and made my dad take the pictures after I left...

WoW Horde cross stitch:


And it's the lid to a box, which was not adequately photographed. Here's the bottom, but it's bluish and prettier on the inside:



The long dimension is 4 inches (well, maybe a bit more. Basically 4 inches). It was fun to make an object instead of just cross stitching.

By the way, I love the couple of pokemon crafts on this thread that have a little pokemon coming out of a pokeball. Cute!

So lanysmiles was fantastic enough to angel for me in this swap, and she sent THE BEST PACKAGE EVER. I'm sorry for the all caps, but it is wonderful and my roommates can attest to my happy reaction ("Aaaaaaaaaah! This is awesome! Aaaaaaah!" etc. etc)

It included excellent extras, so I'll show you the whole conglomeration of things: the tiny video game object, which is a Companion Cube pencil case made of canvas and yarn; an awesome embroidered Tremere tag; felt-tipped pens to fill the pencil case; cute moleskine notebooks; a card; a book of quotes from Irish writers; and a tiny mouse compass. So excellent!



A closeup of the companion cube.

Kay, pictures! Finally here! Again I'm sorry about the insanely long delay! My partner sent me a clay charm bracelet with all of my favorite things! The first day or two after I got it I just played with it... and once I finally decided to wear it, it started to break after the first ten minutes:( So it's retired to my wall of jewelry and art.

the companion cube is cute! How did you do that?

oh! It was plastic canvas and i cut out 6 squares and whip stitched the 5 bottom and sides together with tapestry wool (maybe i shudda joined them afterwards but I never thought about it until after the fact!)
and them i "satin stitched" the sides with tapestry wool, and then I crochets the details (I tried sewing and it was just too messy and ukky looking) and sewed them on.
Then I satin stitched the lid (/i cut out 4holes for the pens first) and added the heart details and then I whipped it to the sides and tried to camouflage it! (not very successfully) 

Oh i also added some padding to the inside on the bottom so that the pens wouldnt get tangled up in the ends of wool etc.

I hope it turned out ok enough to use.

Ohh nice packages! From what game is the Companion Cube? It somehow looks so familiar, but I can't figure it out...

By the way, I wouldn't say no to a round 2 of this swap....what do you say?  8)

I do want to do another OTT swap, but I was thinking more like a Halloween one right now, then maybe a VG one again later on.  :)
