I recieved this beautiful steampunk nativity ornament from Blupaisan! What gorgeous work! What terrific detail!



...and also, is it surrounded by part of the chain from a chainsaw? How awesome is that?!?!

Thank you!


Title: Re: Steampunk Christmas Ornament Swap (Send outs 12/6)
Post by: Alchamy513 on November 13, 2010 12:08:03 PM
Another awesome ornament! I love the little details with a bit of Steampunk added in!


Title: Re: Steampunk Christmas Ornament Swap (Send outs 12/6)
Post by: Averia on November 18, 2010 04:31:37 AM
Oooh, Lovely ornament! I don't think to look at the gallery much since my stuff is so very very very far from being sent out.

Post by: blupaisan on November 20, 2010 02:20:10 PM

check out this adorable bird looking at you!  emily_rohr made it for me and it is wonderful. I love the half and half copper face, and the most ingenious key in the top for hanging!  OR, I can have the bird perch on a brand 'cause it had wire at the feet.  Awesome!  I can't wait to put this on my tree.  thank you, emily!

Post by: bookstorebabe on November 20, 2010 07:48:31 PM
I like the birdies!


Title: Re: Steampunk Christmas Ornament Swap (Send outs 12/6)
Post by: Alchamy513 on November 21, 2010 07:43:40 AM
I agree, the birds are adorable!

Also, I haven't been getting PMs from everyone when they send or receive, it really helps me keep my records up to date if you do!


Title: Re: Steampunk Christmas Ornament Swap (Send outs 12/6)
Post by: Pogo on November 28, 2010 02:39:21 PM
Wow, completely missed we had a gallery.

blupaisan - Your flying creation is too cool. We're they glass wings?

emily_rohr - Your birds are a great idea. What kind of paint did you use? The pictures make it seem like a foil texture.

Awesome start to this gallery! I'm so excited to see more!


Title: Re: Steampunk Christmas Ornament Swap (Send outs 12/6)
Post by: Shadeweaver on November 29, 2010 07:06:26 AM
I am totally and completely embarrassed. I know I typed up a  post for the 2 ornaments I have received, but I am not sure if I failed to hit post or if it never went through.  This is not the first time this has happened, so I am sure it is my airheadedness.  I apologize to my partners for the delay!

Here are my wonderful ornaments ....


 First up is an adorable robot from blupaisan that my son has tried to claim.



Next up is the cute lil bird from emily_rohr, again my son tried to claim this since he says it is wearing a fez and fezzes are cool.  (We are Doctor Who fans)





Thank you ladies ... these are a wonderful addition to my tree!

Shade :)

Post by: Shadeweaver on November 29, 2010 07:07:40 AM
I just realized what I must have done ... I must have hit preview and it looks like I posted it, but it doesn't actually post!


Title: Re: Steampunk Christmas Ornament Swap (Send outs 12/6)
Post by: Alchamy513 on November 29, 2010 07:47:13 AM
Haha, I've done that before... no worries! I love the robot, he is too cute! And the bird really does look like he has a fez...  :D


Title: Re: Steampunk Christmas Ornament Swap (Send outs 12/6)
Post by: bookstorebabe on November 29, 2010 09:42:26 AM
Oh, nifty! I like those a lot-I don't blame your son for trying to steal them!

What variety!! All of these are so cute.


Title: Re: Steampunk Christmas Ornament Swap (Send outs 12/8)
Post by: blupaisan on December 07, 2010 02:10:40 PM

Here is the ornament I got from sailorgirlbonk! It is incredibly delicate and beautiful. Each puzzle piece has a tiny hole in it for hanging on the tree!  Isn't this the coolest idea?  Thank you, sailorbonk.


Title: Re: Steampunk Christmas Ornament Swap (Send outs 12/8)
Post by: sailorgirlbonk on December 07, 2010 03:11:52 PM
I was worried that you wouldn't be able to see the cat wearing the santa hat through the background, but it looks like it came out alright! Glad you liked it -- I experimented a lot with various versions before I got to this technique.


Title: Re: Steampunk Christmas Ornament Swap (Send outs 12/8)
Post by: bookstorebabe on December 07, 2010 06:30:42 PM
I never would have thought of that! I really like how it came out.


Title: Re: Steampunk Christmas Ornament Swap (Send outs 12/8)
Post by: blupaisan on December 08, 2010 03:29:25 PM

I got this stunning!! ornament from patchworkdragon today. i just love it. She used my fave color and my fave animal. thank you so much, dragon, for catering to my wishes and creating such a lovely ornament. my daughter loves it, too and says I can hang it in the house year round.

I received an amazing ornament from patchworkdragon!beautiful detail!! Thank you so much!!



I also received from sailorgirlbonk! I thought this was a great idea; and is beautifully crafted. I love the butterflies! Thank you so much!!

Patchworkdragon - wow, your pieces are so neat!


Title: Re: Steampunk Christmas Ornament Swap (Send outs 12/8)
Post by: bookstorebabe on December 09, 2010 08:26:35 PM
Oh, those are great! I love all the variations on steampunk people have created.

I received from Pogo today! She'll post a pic later. But I have to brag about it-it's the most lovely steampunk star, the colors, the decorations, everything! I love it so much.
Thanks, Pogo!


Title: Re: Steampunk Christmas Ornament Swap (Send outs 12/8)
Post by: Harvey on December 11, 2010 02:34:52 AM
I love patchworkdragon's ornaments.

Post by: habitat-lady on December 11, 2010 11:00:21 AM
 I received from Eukarya, Bookstorebabe and Pogo in the past few days, but knew I wouldn't have a chance to take pics and post until today, so I waited and opened all three this morning!  All so beautiful! 

From Eukarya - a delicate handpainted egg ornament with a reindeer and Christmas trees.  I love it, Thank you so much.


From Bookstorebabe - Thank you for a wonderfully creative ornament, like a small windchime.  I've already tapped the back of a small kid paw to keep her away from it.  Very cool!


From Pogo - A beautiful star in dark blue metallic clay, complete with gears.  It is so lovely, thank you. 


What a great Saturday morning!  We should really do steampunk ornament swaps throughout the year.  LOL


Title: Re: Steampunk Christmas Ornament Swap (Send outs 12/8)
Post by: Pogo on December 11, 2010 01:59:29 PM
Today was Christmas for me too! I walked out the door and there were three boxes (one was craft supplies)!!!!!

Last night I received from Bookstorebabe -
We share a love for the comic Girl Genius and she complete outdid herself with this awesome Agatha ornament. She has amazing detail in her dress, goggles, and even little wrench. Love her!

She is currently guarding my "green" room, I told BSB, I'll have to move some electronics out there so she doesn't go stir crazy.

Next box I dove into was from Eukarya -
I was honored to receive this gorgeous ornament with Santa and gears on the side. I've been impressed with Eukarya's art for years and am so excited to own a piece! It went straight to my tree!


My last fantastic box contained this wonderful piece by Habitat-lady:
Again, I was very impressed by the amount of detail - she managed to fit an entire airship inside the glass ornament and then decorated the outsides with clay, wire and a few gears. The photos don't quite do it justice:


Thanks so much ladies! I have been truly spoiled in this swap!


Title: Re: Steampunk Christmas Ornament Swap (Send outs 12/8)
Post by: Pogo on December 11, 2010 02:00:36 PM
At the request of Bookstorebabe - here is the ornament I sent her:


Title: Re: Steampunk Christmas Ornament Swap (Send outs 12/8)
Post by: spookshowbaby77 on December 11, 2010 04:45:12 PM
Wow - fabulous gallery so far!

I received two ornaments today. The first one is from Harvey, it is a Steampunk Lady - so detailed, the pictures don't do her justice! She included a small steam punk pendant as well, which is hanging beside her in the picture:



I also received from Averia, she did a beautifully embroidered airship! So, so pretty - again I wish my photography skills were a bit better to capture the details:



Thank you both so much!


Title: Re: Steampunk Christmas Ornament Swap (Send outs 12/8)
Post by: eukarya on December 11, 2010 05:49:41 PM
I'm glad you like the egg ornaments!  I tried to make something else at first but it turned out awful, so I grabbed my trusty paintbrushes and went back to basics! :)  The mechanical reindeer is inspired by an Urban Threads design that I love.  The Santa was just fun...I loved how the gears around the side turned out! :)

I've received from Pogo, Bookstorebabe and Habitat-Lady!  Fabulous ornaments so far! :)

From Pogo:

Love all these tiny gears!

From Bookstorebabe:

A cool airship!  My toddler loves this but I've hung it too high on the tree for him to reach!

From Habitat-lady:

So elegant!  I love all the details here! :)

Thank you ladies!

Post by: Alchamy513 on December 11, 2010 06:12:18 PM
Everyone made such amazing ornaments! I really love the stars, and the bulbs, and the wind chime is so unique, and the paintings are amazing... but I think I squeed a little when I saw the mini Agatha doll! Its so cute!

I've received awesome ornaments from Averia and Spookshowbaby, I couldn't get the best pictures since my room has the worst lighting ever, but I love them so much!

First, from Averia... I think spookshowbaby has a much better pic, I tried! I love the metallic thread and the lace around the edges is gorgeous!


And spookshowbaby sent an awesome collage... its on a little canvas and everything!


Too cool! I can't wait for the rest!


Title: Re: Steampunk Christmas Ornament Swap (Send outs 12/8)
Post by: bookstorebabe on December 11, 2010 07:03:47 PM
Oh, man, what a gallery! This was a great swap idea. I want a tree full of these now! Harvey, I love the steampunk lady.


Title: Re: Steampunk Christmas Ornament Swap (Send outs 12/8)
Post by: Averia on December 12, 2010 04:46:05 AM
I tore apart the house and finally found the cable to upload pictures but they do not do these ornaments justice! I should stop swapping completely until i get better at picture taking.

I received from Harvey first and can not get over how lovely the steampunk lady is! My photo does not show the detail well enough, but it is amazingly well crafted and absolutely gorgeous!



Harvey sent a beautiful pendant along with the ornament.




From Spookshowbaby: A beautifully done ornament! Important to note - the gears spin!



From Alchamy513 came this amazing crocheted blimp! I love the way it sparkles on the tree!



Oops, had to come back to edit to show this cute little extra ornament Alchamy513 sent - wouldn't you know, the picture of the tiniest item came out well :D I'm not sure where to put it since it gets lost on the big tree, and it is too adorable to allow it to be lost in the background.


I love everything!!! Thank you so much to each of you!!!



Title: Re: Steampunk Christmas Ornament Swap (Send outs 12/8)
Post by: blupaisan on December 12, 2010 05:05:38 AM
that blimp is amazing.  just gorgeous!

Post by: Alchamy513 on December 13, 2010 01:03:53 PM
I received my last two ornaments today (both from Australia, that was super fast!) and they are gorgeous!

First, a gorgeous Steampunk doll from Harvey, along with a pendant and some Australian goodies! Also, she sent some pictures on a CD that I have to check out! Thank you so much! Also, I'll be emailing you a few pics, I was actually thinking of making a CD for you but my computer doesn't have a burner... so that didn't work!



Next, a gorgeous ornament from Ralph, it looks like a pocket watch! She also sent a gorgeous (resin?) pendant. Thank you so much!



I wanted to thank everyone for a wonderful swap... everyone has sent and now we just have to wait for everything to make its way!


Title: Re: Steampunk Christmas Ornament Swap (Send outs 12/8)
Post by: Shadeweaver on December 13, 2010 03:03:45 PM
Here are 2 more lovely ornaments.

This one is from patchworkdragon..


and this one is from lourapalmr


and since I now have my tree up .... here are the other two I have received in their place of honor ... on MY tree and NOT my son's!  lol





Thank you ladies ... these are beautiful ornaments!  I absolutely love every one of them.

Post by: Ashgrim on December 13, 2010 03:06:16 PM
Just got my final ornament today, so here they all are!

A shot of them all together:



The first is from Pogo. Love the polymer clay and the charms.



This one is from Bookstorebabe. It's base is a light bulb and there are tiny watch gears stuck to it. (Sorry it's a bit blurry)



She sent an extra in case the original one broke in shipment. So considerate! :)

front


back


This is from eukarya. The artwork is amazing, and I love the antique style.



This one is from Habitat-lady. I love the clockwork Christmas tree and the way she used clay on the glass ornament. Fantastic job!





This one is from ceemonster. Such a cute airship! Love the charms at the bottom as well.



The final one is the one I kept for myself.

front


back


Thanks so much for swapping everyone! To my partners, sorry I didn't include a note or anything. I just had a baby (who is 3 weeks old today :)) and was trying to wrap everything up between feedings. I loved swapping and hope to do it again soon!


Title: Re: Steampunk Christmas Ornament Swap (Send outs 12/8)
Post by: Pogo on December 13, 2010 07:53:14 PM
BSB - I love your airships and the lighbulb is so great!
Averia - holy cow to your embroidery! That is awesome!!
Alchamy513 - I love your crocheted blimp!
Harvey - your steampunk ladies are so neat!

Sadly today I received the final two of my set.
First, from Ceemonster - this adorable airship - love her use of clay and copper!
I am happy Pogo is in Service to Her Majesty's Air Ship!


And lastly, from Ashgrim this cool ornament with gears and snowflakes. I am truly in love with the key too -


Thank you so much to my wonderful swap partners! You all rocked!


Title: Re: Steampunk Christmas Ornament Swap (Send outs 12/8)
Post by: bookstorebabe on December 13, 2010 08:05:42 PM
Ashgrim, congratulations on your new little one!

I just got home from work, and the swap fairy had arrived! packages from Eukarya, Habitat Lady, Ceemonster, and Ashgrim.
Everything is fantastic.
A purple airship from Ceemonster, a steampunk dancer from Eukarya, a glass and clay creation from Habitat Lady, and a gear and key decorated lovely from Ashgrim. And of course earlier my cool star from Pogo. They're all amazing-I feel very spoiled.
My wonderful partners are being kind enough to post pictures for me.
Ladies, it was a pleasure swapping with you. Thanks so much.


Title: Re: Steampunk Christmas Ornament Swap (Send outs 12/8)
Post by: Averia on December 14, 2010 04:31:16 AM
So many beautiful items at once! It makes it too hard to give them all the comments they deserve. Everything has been amazing in this swap!


Title: Re: Steampunk Christmas Ornament Swap (Send outs 12/8)
Post by: habitat-lady on December 15, 2010 10:25:48 AM
The last of my ornaments from ceemonster and Ashgrim. Sigh.  If there was ever a swap I wanted to be in year-round, this would be it.
 
From Ashgrim a wonderful ornament complete with gears and buttons and snowflakes.  And I love that big key at the bottom and the the way you wrapped it in wire. Thank you!


And Ceemonster sent an airship that commands the sky.  I'm proud to have her majesty's ship on my tree. Love the teal-metallic color.   Its beautiful, and thank you.


Thank you to Alchamy513 for a great swap!  You're a fabulous organizer!


Title: Re: Steampunk Christmas Ornament Swap (Send outs 12/8)
Post by: Alchamy513 on December 15, 2010 11:08:22 AM
Aw, you guys have been the best! I didn't have any problems... I think this was definitely the ideal swap all around. I'll most definitely be hosting again next year!

Also, I updated everything on the first page... if you've received or posted pictures and it says otherwise please let me know!


Title: Re: Steampunk Christmas Ornament Swap (Send outs 12/8)
Post by: eukarya on December 16, 2010 09:14:45 AM
Here are the last of my ornaments!  I've had the flu this week so this is the first time I've been able to post.

Ashgrim sent this lovely ornament with steampunk details and keys.


Ceemonster sent me a beautiful airship with gear and key hanging from it,


Here's what I sent to Bookstorebabe - She's a lovely steampunk lady with goggles and wristbracers.

I received my two final ornaments this weekend!

A lovely crocheted air ship from Alchamy513, along with a mini ornament:


A really cool resin ornament with all sorts of bits & a pendent from Ralph:


Thank you both so much! This was a wonderful swap!


Title: Re: Steampunk Christmas Ornament Swap (Send outs 12/8)
Post by: Harvey on December 21, 2010 02:55:52 AM
Here are the first two ornaments I have received.


A cool ornament from Ralph made in the bottom of a drink can. With it a cute pendant. I actually got them a while ago but had limited internet access and couldn't upload photos, sorry Ralph.


The very pretty ornament I got from Spookshowbaby. I really like the use of 2D and 3D elements.

I am loving this swap.


Title: Re: Steampunk Christmas Ornament Swap (Send outs 12/8)
Post by: blupaisan on December 22, 2010 04:28:22 AM
I have been so rude as to not post my two last pics until now, and I am sorry. I got two fabulous ornies , the Shadeweaver and lourapalmr! Here is the first -

Currently this adorable top hat is sitting atop a ceramic frog my daughter made until it makes its way to our tree. I love it. It has feathers, a white rose, and a gear on it. And a beautiful scroll up top for hanging.
Next,

a nest of sorts just chock full of steampunkies! Bees, gears, feathers, shells, and a clockface.
Thank you sooo much, ladies. You did a bang-up job on my goodies!


Title: Re: Steampunk Christmas Ornament Swap (Send outs 12/8)
Post by: Harvey on December 22, 2010 03:21:10 PM
I got my last two ornaments, so cool that they all got here before Christmas.


First the beautifully embroidered ornament from Averia. I tried to get the photo to show the stitching. She also sent me some cool American candy.


This is the gorgeous hot air balloon from our organiser Alchamy513. My husband was very pleased by the gears. He has been teasing me that things aren't steampunk unless they have gears.


This is the pretty extra that she sent too.

Thank you both. Thank you to all my partners. I have loved this swap.


Title: Re: Steampunk Christmas Ornament Swap (Send outs 12/8)
Post by: Ralph on December 23, 2010 12:16:29 AM
Here, finally, are the photos of my amazing ornaments, sorry they took so long:

From Harvey:
 
Amazing steampunk girl and cool goggles pendant.

From Alchamy513:

Gorgeous balloon ornament and


mini ornament w/goggles (Harvey and Alchamy must have known!)

From Averia:

beautiful embroidered airship and American candies (I have to say candy when talking about American lollies, it just doesn't sound right otherwise!).

And from Spookshowbaby:

the lovely canvas ornament

Thanks to all my partners! This has been an awesome swap!

-Ralph

I can't believe I am so late in posting this picture. Please forgive me Ralph. It has nothing to do with the ornament - I love the ornament! But Christmas completely consumed me...

Post by: Alchamy513 on December 26, 2010 07:56:36 PM
Awesome ornaments everyone!

A little update:

Group 1: All done! I'll be getting you guys feedback soon!

Group 2: Waiting on a few pictures, please let your partners know if you can't get pictures up yourself.

Group 3: Waiting to hear from a few people. If this is you I'll be sending out worried emails probably tomorrow, so let me know!

I also wanted to thank everyone for an amazing swap! You guys rocked! I'm looking forward to another round next year, and possible another Steampunk swap before that!

Alright, I took the ornaments off my inter-faith shrubbery and FINALLY found the camera -- I'm so sorry it took me so long to post pics!

Here's everybody from my group, again I was so amazed at all the thought and love put into these. THANK YOU!

It sounds like Ceemonster has a lot going on lately. 

Here's what I sent her (sorry for the blurry picture...I was trying to hurry before my toddler attacked):


I'm actually pretty proud of her because she started out looking like this:


I carved off her mohawk, repainted her face (especially those scary bug eyes) and clothes, gave her hair (in a classy up-do with hanging tresses) and a nice skirt.  I even repainted her guns to look more steampunk.

Thanks!
