I received from Sederick. He spoiled me <3

I am so happy :D <3 <3 <3


Awesome note w/ Dalek!!!! :D You know what's funny? In drama, we did a TV improv thing, and I convinced my group that we HAD to do Doctor Who for one of our 3 shows XD I ended up playing a Dalek, one of my friends was the 10th Doctor (and we used a giant screwdriver for the sonic screw driver) and my other friend was the doctor's companion :D

First off, yummy spoilage <3


Mmmmm.... Pine scented Morning Star incense. I swear you read my mind, this is one of my favorite brands of incense. <3 I have some Japanese incense from Shoyeido, and I'm almost out and was needing to buy more of the traditional styled Japanese incense, but you totally beat me to it! The pine scent is soooooo amazing smelling. :) I really enjoy it. ^_^


Super pretty postcards and a sticker. ^_^ <3


Absolutely beautiful ATC of a pentagram and the Goddess. <3
Idk why photobucket made it sideways, it was forwards. :c


Super amazing Doctor Who inchies!!!!!! Please note, I worship you now. <3 These are freaking brilliant!


Gorgeous Dotee. I love the moon and stars. This beautiful Dotee is hanging with my Dotees from round 11, and I like that it smiles down on me from my bed :D

Thank you sooooo much Sederick!!! I just hope you'll like mine as much as I love yours. <3

That's a relief.. the Dr Who inchies did not squash.. and you liked it all :) I absolutely had to do the Dr. Who because I have been catching up just recently. I stopped watching after season two because I was mourning the loss of Rose but I am now on Season 4 and loving it again. My wife is into celestial things and so I made you a dotee I thought she would like..and she did so I was pretty confident *L* The background on the ATC is part of the wiccan rede :)

Post by: Fullmoon on January 19, 2011 10:39:51 PM
I was reallyyyyyyyy sleepy and feeling a lil sick when I was looking at everything so I had trouble reading everything, but now that I'm very conscious and not feeling sick, I looked over the card again and was like "OMG It IS the Wiccan Rede!!! Hehehehe it's even cooler XD" <3

Ahhhh I'm sooooo hooked on inchies now, and your amazing Doctor Who inchies have made me want to build an amazing Doctor Who inchies collection :D (Well I want a huge inchies collection anyways, but especially Doctor Who haha)

I received my package from thisbirdsabsurd today and very much squeeled with delight.

First, I opened my inchies and fell in love. They are super cute! I love how they all go together.



Then I saw my ATC. And being a big Harry Potter fan, once again I fell head over heels.



And when I thought it couldn't get any better, guess who forced his way right into my heart..(not much forcing really. I'm a big Star Wars fan as well lol)



Everything all together:




Thank you thisbirdsabsurd for being such an awesome partner! I love my package very much!!

Wow- I love the 3-D inchies! How clever! That ATC is really elegant looking too!

And thisbird... You always do great work. I might have to steal kmichele's package from her. :)

PS: kmichele- you might be my long lost twin. Birds, Harry Potter, and Star Wars! OMG! :)

I'm not even a Dr Who fan and I love those inchies!  Very cool!
Kmichele - glad you liked your package - everytime I have to work small I feel like its a real challenge - I think it's good for me.  ;)

Pirate: Nope, it's all paper. It's watercolor, pencil and colored pencil on water color paper and attached to a piece of scrapbook paper.

Finally - wasn't so sick but just took it easy this weekend.

The dotee from Sederick:



Hand-painted body and face and polymer clay hands and feet. Love him (or her). He will fit in with all my other oddities!

And rock 'n' roll is here to stay (ATC):



And inchies version:



Thanks, Phil, I love it all!

I received from Kmichele and thisbirdsabsurd last week and am finally getting around to showing off my great packages...
First, from Kmichele:



One of my themes, obviously, was fairly tales :)  I wish I could draw like that!  So pretty - especially the snow white dotee!  Thank you K!

And then from thisbirdsabsurd:



The Dotee is made from polymer clay!  I have absolutely no skills in that area, so I'm super-impressed!  The hands on the clock even move!  But for some reason my favorite part is the fish inchies - I love the water-color shading and his smirk!  Thanks J!

Post by: thisbirdsabsurd on January 25, 2011 11:00:36 AM
Glad you liked everything - and kmichele - another great group of fairytales!!
  The clock dotee (cause you said you like clocks) has a few extra hours, because, who couldn't use a few more hours in their day!  ;)  Glad you like the fish - its funny because I hadn't done inchies before, but they ended up being a lot of fun!  :)

I received from the wonderful susanab today!! I knew it was out for delivery and I practically bounced home.  ;D

Susan made me this amazing robot!! Isn't she the best?! She's obviously thinking very hard about something. :) I cropped the picture a little wide so you can see how she happens to be the exact shade of green that I painted my craft room.


Then, I got a robot ATC featuring the Lost in Space robot- too cute! And my inchie set is crafty themed. I love how the text in the background is all crafty too! I just love these!


Thanks again, Susan!! What great additions to my collections!

Thanks for the lovely comments everybody. Glad you liked your package tristitia it was a lot of fun to make.

I love the face on pirate's dotee. Hubby says I have the same look on my face sometimes when I'm crafting lol. And another great package thisbird! I love the smirking fish.

I received from Susanab today! I absolutely love everything!

She went with my theme of hearts.
Here is everything together:

The inchies are really cute. They are all the same image but in different colors and medium.


The dotee has a really awesome pin face!


Thank you so much for an awesome first package!

I received my package from tristitia today. She went with a nature theme. She was worried that the Dotee got a little crazy, but I think it's perfect!! I love the entire package!



But wait! Where are the inchies and the ATC?

Tucked neatly inside of course!



I am totally inspired to try stitching scrapbook paper on my sewing machine now. Thanks so much tristitia!

I received from woobie today too! Everything is so great! The detail that she put into everything is amazing. It is nice to receive my first inchies and dotees to see how other people create them!


Sirius Black!


My very own Catherine Morland!


Jane Austen ATC

and inchies:



(sorry this one is so dark-if I turned the flash on, there would be too much glare)
Btw- I love how it says 'He's a magic man.' One of my favorite Heart songs is Magic Man haha!

and some awesome extras that I am super excited about!


Thanks again woobie! I really do love everything!

Dizzer and StickerChic.. I'm glad everything arrived ok and that you are ok with the themes I decided to work with.. as to there being two dotees, they were the easiest for me to do and I kinda got carried away.

Dizzer.. sending good thoughts to you and the baby..

My swap package from Woobie arrived! It's so awesome, I was doing a little jig around the kitchen after opening it. Eeeeeeeeeeee!

First, my absolute favorites, not one but TWO Harry Potter inspired dotees:


Prof McGonagal is holding an owl bead & Snape has a potions bottle. So cute!

A cool ATC & inchies, Yay!


Extras!!!!! I love, love, love the tiny tin of ephemera.


THANK YOU WOOBIE!!!!!!!

I got some very lovely goodies from keyzmasta the other day and sadly my scanner is being crazy face. But I do have my laptop... so I have slightly backwards Mac pictures.

ACT and Inchies


Very cool and different Dotee(my name starts with an E!)


The goodies inside the dotee(what a cool little trinket thing!)


I'm so thankful for Keyzmasta's snaow days that let her creativity shine!!!

REMINDER: Please PM the organizer (PirateColey or me, Smmarrt) when you send and receive. That's the only way we have to keep good records of what is where and who received what. This expedites feedback and good karma.

Ditto on that. :)

Even if you don't have time to post pictures right away, please try to PM us and your partner the day you receive. Many people watch the tracking numbers, and if you don't PM that you received their package they might start to worry you didn't like what they made you...  ;)

tapestry, I'm glad you liked your package.  I had fun with the dotees, the ideas for them came the easiest to me.. so I ended up making more of them. 

All of the work in this swap has been so inspirational.  I love the little portfolio with the ATC and inchies.

I have mine hanging on the cork board above my computer desk at the moment. I'm sure I'll have to come up with something different as I continue to add to my collection. But for now, they all fit.

I only have a few dotees.. from a previous swap, but I hang them with tiny tiny clothespins from a garland that's draped on a valance in my "home office/craft/catch-all room"..

I was just wondering how everyone displays their dotees? I'm trying to decide how/where I want to put my new little friends!

I use picture wire and small hooks (like cup hooks, only with a closed circle). The hooks hold the wire taunt and I hang the Dotees from the wire with pretty colored safety pins (though I may switch to mini-clothes pins). Whenever I run out of room I add another row and keep going. Since Dotees have loops for hanging it works out well to display them on the wall and not take up shelf space with them. :)

Here's a picture from a couple rounds ago:

I love stashes!

A Luna Lovegood dotee! Luna is my favorite character from Harry Potter, I think she's simply amazing ;) there should be four pictures showing up here

Thank you so much for everything, you did such an impressive job ;)

I'm currently displaying my dotees/inchies/ATCs on my inspiration boards in my craft area. I'm going to eventually frame the inchies when I have enough to do so. The dotees are eventually going to be strung like a garland beneath my larger inspiration board.

In this close up you can see some of the sparkle - but it really is not doing it justice!

Now last but by no means least!!!! Thisbirdsaburd!!! YAY!!!

I love love love all of the things you have made me -  I absolutely love the dotee!!!  I think she is me in fairy form - as I am into all spirituality and colour therapy and all that stuff and well - I said that I dont like orange - but dont worry she is fab and exactly the colour I need as I sooooo want babies and orange is the colour to help with that (when you try to avoid a colour it normally means you need balancing in that area)  Plus my last name is Green and she is green (and very very glittery - I like to think that i sparkle too!!!)

Well I had better stop waffling and just post the picture lol!

soo here I am in fairy form ...

I also really love the inchies - they are sooo cute and fit in with my love theme in my craft room :)  I really like how they have been presented in the card too - I was thinking of framing them up, but I love the whole reveal thing - I will put my thinking cap on to see what i come up with :)

I agree. Sewarty - what a great start to your collection.

And I think Fullmoon and I belong in the Terribly Important SOB swap because she sent me a terribly important dotee. But I can't post until tomorrow. So you'll have to wait because I am so important that I don't have the time to do it tonight. Ha!

Okay, first up are some crafty inchies, hand-drawn by Washington state's newest art student:



Secondly, a hand-drawn ATC of a rock chick:



And third: World's. Best. Dotee.



I'm not biased, really. What subject matter. What depth. What artistry. C'est fantastique! Okay, it's cuter than cute, right?

Thanks so much Ali and congrats on art school.

No prob. And thank you ^.^ I'm very excited haha. =)

How cute! The Smmarrt dotee...so simple, and so clever! It's the most obvious thing, but I never would have thought of it!

Y'know, after I made it I thought "What if someone HAS done this!? Hell, what if Smmarrt has already done this?!?!?!" Then I was like "Nah, I bet nobody's even thought of this >:D BWAHAHAHAH!" Funny thing is, I think my sewing machine even agrees this is clever and that Smmarrt is a terribly important SOB. xD My new sewing machine (only used twice now) seriously waited until AFTER I'd finished this Dotee and gone back to working on swaps I was very very veryyyyyyy late on to completely break down and make me A: hand sew things, B: Use my barely working sewing machine that doesn't like to hold a stitch. XD;

I received my set from yarnorthread today. She went with a nature theme. One of the inchies has a quote, "Dreams are todays answers to tomorrows questions."



I love the hair on the doll, also the label on the back of the ATC. The whole set is great and it is my first dotee and inchies, how fun.

I am going to try to get the packaging done today so I can mail out after my meeting on thursday.

I received from PirateColey while I was overseas. I just got home and it is such a fabuloso collection--and the Dotee is a socks-knocker-offer. Will post pix as soon as I can.

I think I had to be restless about posting PirateColey's fantastic creations--I was downloading at 5:15 AM!!

She chose New York City as the theme--where I spend most of my awake hours...

By far -- NOT your usual dotee (and isn't that what us Craftsters are just prone to do?!). Now I can carry mine with me and never need to hail one:

There is so much about this that is amazing: I just love the shape andthe windows are shiny, just like when the sun catches them the right way! She even put hanging dice below! I love everything about this, right to the starry ribbon that it's hanging from.

PirateColey added wonderful touches of NYC glitter to the ATC and inchies. The ATC has dimension, it "breaks the border"--it's SOOOO New York. You'll have to take good looks at these to see all the wonderous things she selected.


I so love EVERYTHING--thank you so much!

Cute penguin dotee!:


Amazing ATC & inchies holder:


Annnd I love these inchies and this Emma ATC:


I cant decide if the Robin Hood hat or Hunger Games inchie is my favorite, even though I love them all! I'm getting quite the collection of Jane Austen ATCs (which I LOVE)...Im going to have to do up a framing project with them all!

Thank you so much tapestry-your skills are amazing and I just love everything! :D

Here is the wonderful package I came home to - From EdelC!!

The dotee is made out of the coolest -60's style material and the leaf charm at the bottomis so lovely.
The inchies (sorry I didn't take close-ups) are a mix of a TV with a rainbow inside and a mystery map, and one with bitty owls!
The the ATC is "When I grow up" and I love the litle pennets on top.

And...I got extras!

Some lovely crystal with blue earrings! ( totally my style) And stamps from Ireland - way cool!

Thank you, Thank you Edel C!

Yay! So glad everything arrived safely and that you like them :D I wasn't sure about the Penguin dotee but he was so, so cute I couldn't resist. I didn't have the right material so I got some plain muslin and stamped it with wintery star stamps and I like the way it came out. This has been such a fun swap to work on!

Actually, tristitia made the first holders like that in the gallery. Mine are a very, very scaled down version of her's. So I am going to respectfully bow down to Tristitia as the ATC holder goddess and suggest she post a tute :D

You're welcome.  I've been working on a journal cover inspired by Teesha Moore so I have lots of little pillows.  Then I decided to try it with dotees.  My darling sewing machine was having one of her moods so they were all hand sewn. I wanted to do a few things of everyones likes but still random.  ;D   This was a great swap and I'd love to sign up for next round.

Organizer note:

Hi everyone - The gallery is great so far and I know that some of you are battling colds, flu, arctic weather conditions and worse so I bumped up the send-out date to Monday, Feb. 14th. I hope this alleviates some stress for those still crafting and/or recovering from illness.

To those who have sent out already, Pirate and I appreciate your timeliness and thanks for some great art to drool over. Be well, be safe and remember, this is FUN, not work.

 okay so after hours of network failures,i have finally been able to upload the videos of my package from tapestrymlp. I also had to redo the videos multiple times because I can't edit anything since I'm having to use the camera on my phone since our computers are dead and I don't think there's a final cut pro app.

Here's a video of the swap package. She made a forest fairy dotee, luna lovegood atc, octopus inchie, mustache inchie, captain hammer inchie, and robot inchie.

Thank you for the extension!  I just sent a grovelling note to PirateColey because I have to send one of my parcels late, ie Monday, which now isn't technically late after all.  :)

I have received from MandyKaye, and it's brilliant!

As with her other packages, there was a doublesided bonus ATC:




RAWR!  Dragon ATC:

(This is uncannily similar to... you'll see when Mandy gets her package...)

Inchies:

I'm a word nerd, and love the use of text as the background.

Extras!

I didn't take a photo of the handmade card, but there was one and it was lovely.

And the dotee, a gorgeous little piece of work named "Happiness":



I hung her on this particular hook just for the sake of having a clear background for the photo.  But I'll have to find a higher spot, because I'm not the only one who loves her long dangly tail...

Wow, there have been so many great things so far! I love the happiness dotee, she's so cute!

Here is the package I received from ThreadOrYarn this week. First, the dotee:



She is especially welcome to my collection because, besides being adorable, this is actually the first traditional-style dotee I've received! And the ATC and inchies:




I'm sorry for the blurry cell phone pics :( The ATC is titled "Ducks," and out of the inchies, three of them are math related  ;D One has an expansion of the irrational number pi in the background, another has a little algebra problem on it, and the third says, "The infinity symbol is sometimes called the lumniscate." The fourth is of a monochromatic tree in navy blue.

Thanks so much, ThreadOrYarn, I love them all!

I got trees from YsMeine!  :) Especially welcome, because with all the snow we've gotten this year, I've been telling people that I'm now "too short to shovel" because the piles along my driveway are so high! :) :)

An adorable tree dotee:



And a tree branch ATC:



(sorry for the blurriness, I haven't figured out yet why a pic can look perfectly clear on the camera screen but come out blurred on the PC :( )

Leaf and tree themed inchies



and an almost-inchie size necklace pendant extra :)



Thank you so much!  :-*

I received my last to packages in the mail today.

first from spiffyhink, love that face on the dotee.


and from helmetwearer, the atc says dare to dream


I love how all three are so different. It was my first time making dtees and inchies and they are definitely worth the challenge.

I had meant to shw pics of what I sent to helmetwearer. It seems I didn't take pics when I was packaging them up to go out. My batteries were dead and I forgot when I mailed them. I do have a group photo of all the inchies and a pic of two of the dotees.

These are the inchies while they were drying. Helmetweares are the first two in the third column, the bottom framed one, and the one on the very bottom.


The sweetpea dotee is also hers. It is hard to see her face.


as for her atc, I sent two and didn't get pics of either. The main one was her initial with random vines around it in black ink. King of an organic doodle. The other was a whimsical night sky with paper punched stars and moon.

For my theme "CATS" I received 2 lovely swap packages from:
susanab

The dotee she made me has a lovely fluffy tail and a beautiful cat (metal button) face. The ATC came with an interesting bit of history on the back, and for the inchies I got Felix, Garfield, Sylvester and the Pink Panther. Thanks so much!

PirateColey:

I got a beautiful painted cat dotee who is too cute for words, adorable looking cats for inchies , and I like the ATC poem. Thanks so much!

PS: My camera is giving me problems so I took these photos with my hubby's phone. Please feel free to post better pics if you have!

I got two, that's TWO, sets today. A rainy Monday in San Francisco and my little mailbox was STUFFED with swap goodness!

From amethyst6, a sewing-themed dotee, ATC and inchies:



A crocheted dotee with cool sewing charms - love her.

A sewing ATC:



And the extra-cool sewing inchies:



I am going to try to use the inchies to finish up my sewing-themed Altered Puzzle (you can see the unfinished version signaling the Altered Puzzle Pieces Swap that I am also hosting.)

Thanks so much Tracy - the little details are awesome.

The second package came from llisaredd. She wrote "Picasso" on the outside of the flat rate box so I was a little excited.

First the hand-painted dotee:



This is based on the painting "Girl Before Mirror".

Next is the ATC, based on "Facing Death, Self Portrait":



It says at the bottom : "Art is a lie that makes us realize truth."

The inchies, also based on the artist's work:



Thanks so much, Lisa. I made Picasso-esque dotees in one swap and they were so freeing because the eyes did not have to be the same size. Thank -  ;D

The dotee was inspired by the picture below

My ATC is very cool and includes all my choices and the inchies are very very cool as well. Thank you for hosting!!

This post is going to have a bunch of photos, but its not my fault that Dizzer sent an awesome package that has to be showed off to everyone! ;)

Before opening:


Wuthering Heights inchies that go together to make a bigger scene. I love that they are sketched, it fits in with the gloominess of the novel!:


A cute felt hot chocolate ATC! Look at the little marshmallows! This is going to be put (in a safe spot) in my kitchen!:


A bookmark extra! Ive been wanting to try one of these corner type ones!


A cute extra Valentines dotee!:


Some more extras! Button fairies! Potential future swap theme? I think so. ;):


Aaand the grand finale...my favorite from this package...a Dylan dotee!!!


And just because I have to, a pic of dotee-Bob with his new friends plushie-Bob (from the wonderful Pupper) and ami-Bob (from the talented amydice).:

I showed my husband this pic and he says, "Do you need anymore Bob Dylans?" I said, "Yes."  ;D

Thanks Dizzer for an AMAZING package!! I love everything so much!!

The answer to any question - Do you need more? is ALWAYS yes!

I'm little envious of your Bob Dylan collection - totally rad. Did you see him last night on the Grammys?

Thanks! I was at work while the Grammys were on, but when I got home my husband found the performance on the internet for me to watch. Saaawooon!!! Besides having a mild Dylan crush (completely healthy, dont worry haha), Mumford & Sons are my newest favorite, so to see them together was epic! *sigh*  ;)

:) Awww Dizzer! He's adorable! Congratulations! :)

Now how can any of us possibly follow those pictures in this gallery? :D But, I received from amethyst6 and I must show off her talent.

First, the inchies:

I love these! The one with the leaves is my favorite and will be going into my green inchies project.

The ATC:

Love this too! The coloring of the background is subtle and beautiful! It's so like a real sunset. Love the tree and the owl and the moon too!

My wonderful dotee:

I love the yarn used for this, her face, and all the leaf and dragonfly details. Love it!

So Fullmoon received but isn't home to open her package so I am posting some pics for her. I had intended to use 1" buttons on all my dotees - so I could avoid making faces;my least favorite thing to make - but only Fullmoon and llisaredd's dotees have pins.

The front:



And the back:



What can I say? I'm a Jersey girl and it's my favorite word. There's a little crack showing - I tried to make a thong showing but couldn't figure it out...Just my sense of humor....

The ATC - one of Ali's choices:



And the inchies:

Congratulations Dizzer, he's absolutely adorable!  :)

Finally felt somewhat up to venturing out today, just a little queasy.  blech.  Hate being sick.  So my very patient partners will be getting their packages soon! 

Plus I found all three packages waiting for me.  Yeah!  Everything is awesome.  Have to teach tonight, but I'll be posting pics as soon as I get home.  :)

Love all the posts so far.  This is the kind of thing that can keep in crafty motivation.  :D

I received from llisaredd today!  She picked my love of owls and made me the darn cutest owl dotee!

His tummy is made of I'm guessing recycled sweater?  and I don't know if you can tell but his tail feathers are actually quite feather-y great technique!

Then the awesome ATC and inchies - the third inchie is fabric (I think)?  But all are truly awesome!  Thank you sooo much!

My first venture out the door in a few days (stupid flu!) and I find not one, but all three packages waiting for me at the post office  :D  AWESOME!  I love all three, have to find a good place to hang / display everything.  My partners did an awesome job. 
I have to say though, it's very strange how sometimes great minds think!  lol


From llisaredd:
A peacock themed package  :D


and the tail!


These are great.  You are such a talented artist too!  :)  Love, love, love it all.  Perfect additions to my growing peacock collection!  :D

------------------

From amethyst6:

Italian themed inchies!  Woohoo!   And a dotee that looks like a matryoshka with rubber ducks.  My bathroom is done all in rubber ducks, I love it!


These will have to go in a good frame in my kitchen  :)  (Sorry the pic is hard to see, couldn't turn off the flash and with an excited puppy running around I didn't want to take them out of the bag just yet)


I don't have a big pic of the ATC.  It's the Leaning Tower of Pisa with a mask and a bottle of wine.  :)

Things like this make me really want to learn how to crochet.  Isn't it beautiful?  :)
-------------------

From Smmarrt
How did you know???  One of my favorite authors in Roald Dahl, and the Gene Wilder Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is one of those movies that I just can't pass up when it's on tv.  :D


Inside it just gets better!


Doctor Who inchies!  Even better, my most favoritest doctor - John Pertwee!!!!  :D   Plus a Dahl double sided inchie.  A Paris inchie (I get to go in May!) and an Omaha inchie.  This is so awesome



and the ATC.  :D


Smmarrt you totally hit it to the moon!  :D


I love all my new dotees and inchies and ATC's.  This was my first time making them, so a bit of a challenge, but the exchange totally made it fun.  I hope you like yours just as much ladies!  :D
Please excuse me while I go squeee some more  lol

I received from lindzyt today and she chose to go with my themes "Art and Artists".

The ATC which has her favorite Picasso quote (you'll see it when she posts!):

All children are artists...


The art inchies:



And the Picasso-inspired dotee:



The face is made from paper clay (I'm guessing) and the nose is definitely a Picasso nose. Sorry, it's late and dark and I'm a crappy photographer anyway. Please post a better photo if you have one, Lindsey.

Such a great addition to my dotee collection - thanks!

Oh, and I found 1" Memory Glass pendants so I can make a 2-sided inchie necklace. It will be difficult to choose just 2!

In case someone can't see Dizzer's video of the items I sent her, here are a few pics. I know some work places block YouTube. Not that any of you guys are checking out the gallery at work *cough*.


Dizzer's dotee is on the right, the fairy. I've had that owl fabric for awhile and figured I'd go with a loose bird theme for my dotees :D


Close up of the ATC, it's Luna Lovegood with a 3-dimensional sunflower tucked into her hair. I just couldn't stop fussing with the ATCs, lol. At first the flower was flat like the rest of the image and there was no gold inked border.


Inchies 1 & 2 - the Captain Hammer symbol from Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog (lord I love that movie, we need a swap inspired by that), and a robot


Inchies 3 & 4 - an octopus & a curly mustache

And of course here's the outside of the little portfolio I made to hold the inchies and ATC (inspired by Tristia's amazing work which makes my little portfolios look quite bland by comparison!):

Dizzer's is the one of the left. The ATCs are just tucked in with a bit of elastic holding 2 corners and the inchies were attached inside the little hand-drawn frames using repositionable scrap adhesive so their owners can remount them if they like.

Thanks again for an awesome swap everyone! I had so much fun with this and really loved getting to work on these crafts!

Co-Organizer's note for International Groups:

I am going out of town tomorrow morning and will be gone until around March 3. I will have VERY limited internet while I'm gone. Please PM Smmarrt when you receive or if you have any questions. If you don't PM Smmarrt you'll have to wait for me to get back before you get feedback and such, so it's very important.

I'm going to give feedback today to everyone in my groups whose packages have all made it to their partners and who have been good with communication.

Thanks for being understanding and sorry about having to switch things up on you guys.

See you when I get back!! :)

I received wonderful packages from HelmetWearer and SpiffyHink this week

From HelmetWearer -

A lovely Geisha lady dotee 

and a fun set of ATC and inchies (watercolor I think)


From SpiffyHink -

A dotee busy reading about Amazing Stuff From Around The World (I have to figure out how to hang her from my bookcase :) ) She feels like a soft paper mache.



A butterfly ATC and floral/nature inchies -





And an assortment of paper extras



Thank you both for such great packages!  :-*  :-*

ThreadorYarn, I'm so glad you liked your package! The dotee was made from magazine strips that I glued down and painted over. I know that's not really what you had in mind when you listed the "Magazine strips technique," but that's what I was inspired to do when I saw it. All the other packages are looking great--I love the Picasso themed one!

And here, finally, are the packages I received from HelmetWearer and Ysmeine. From Ysmeine:

The dotee:

It reminds me of moths, which I love. And I wish I could get a better picture of the face, but my phone will not oblige :( I believe it's made from glittery polymer clay.

The ATC and inchies:

Steampunk (!), a robin, and some beautifully dimensioned inchies, one of which I think I'll have to add to a necklace. They were all arranged in this nice handmade card:

I LOVE getting cards during swaps; I like to use them in my art journals in different ways!

And from HelmetWearer:

A happy little geisha who hangs smiling on my dotee board.


Space-themed inchies and ATC, OH SQUEE! I LOVE the spaceman, and, well, all of them really.

Thank you both so much! I enjoyed swapping with all of you!

I received two awesome packages over the weekend.

From Southern Flower :)

an adorable "Babushkas" style dotee

I LOVE her! She is the perfect addition to my dotee collection :)


Love all of them, but the fox is my favorite. So cute!


From lindzyt:


I can't get a good picture of the face. It's made from paper clay I believe, and is like a green man - surrounded by leaves. Love it!


Fabulous inchies!

STUNNING ATC!!!

Really. I am blown away by this ATC. The technique is far too subtle to photograph well. I LOVE this! LOVE!

(Sorry for the blurry pictures)

The whole lot


The cute little dotee, I love her eyes


The fabulous 4


This blurry picture does not do this ATC justice (Love it)

For llisaredd and Smmarrt, a better (sorta) pic of the dotee faces  :)
It's actually white polymer clay, fired and painted with a little watercolor.  I'm actually surprised the color stayed on as well as it did.  I really liked the way it looked plain white so I stopped with just the highlights. 
I'm so glad you like them!  :)

The ATC features a bit of fabric for the woman's dress lol! So origional!


Now here is the dotee she made me! Very similar to the one I made her lol! She used what looks like an organic or recycled fabric and the dress is stamped with a celtic tree of life!

Sorry the pic is blurry, i tried to scan it since my batteries in my camera died again!! i will post a better pic when they re-charge! She also sent some extras and a handmade card that i will also take pics of!  Thanks so much Nobody!

I received from dizzer yesterday.. had so much fun last night admiring all the goodies she sent.



first: everything together.  It was all bundled up in fabric (which is going to be making an appearance in a quilt project I'm working on) and tied with pretty vintage looking lace.
(http://www.flickr.com/photos/jacjan/5473221515/)


next: the dotees.. meet Molly & Arthur and my cute, flat valentine dotee.
(http://www.flickr.com/photos/jacjan/5473818436/)

next: an adorable Ravenclaw atc & and Warholesque dalek inchies.. and a bonus bookmark.
(http://www.flickr.com/photos/jacjan/5473222805/)

She also sent me some button/bead fairies.  They are adorable.  I want to try my hand at making some now.

Diz.. thank you, I know this has been a very busy time in your life and I appreciate all the pretties.

He is just too cute!

And adorable inchies!  An awesome gnomey themed package!


I was spoiled with a few extras (thank you!!!!)


And finally a felt ATC inspired by a hoopla from my wist...
  I love this!!!  It is way better than the hoop on my wist.  And it is so textural, I am trying to decide on a place of honor to display it.

Thank you so much for an awesome swap!

My double-header of packages from katara and isabelchun!
katara went with my theme "cats"  and crafted this sunny cat dotee for me. I especially love the painted face--this is sort of what my three look like after getting up after one of their dozens of naps during the day. Lovely fabric and I love how the ears go right into the shape at the top:


Her ATC and inchies are catfabulous. Guessing that the cheetahs tour is a local event (?)--LUCKY!! Though I'm guessing you won't see such a cheery pink one on most days. Check out the inchies--sweet as can be! Thanks so much katara!


isabelchun went with my theme space and crafted an amazing Jupiter dotee for me. The large and small beadwork really is so lovely and her face is so serene. And she's soft and just plain fabulous:


and the back:

I heart this!

The ATC is a moon that swivels--I love the wild design on its face! And the inchies are like this adorable 4-part space story. I love these drawings--they really make me laugh out loud.

Thank you isabelchun!
This  has been a super swap--I'm just amazed and delighted.
Thank you!

I received from Crafthsmom today!
A very fun set!

  Such cute, colorful inchies and a very unique ATC, I'm going to have to hide the dotee or hang it very high as my cat is eying it up those kind of colors make him goofy!  Thank you for the lovely package!

One of my partners is currently MIA so I thought I would post pics of what I sent.
One of her choices was "India" so my dotee was inspired by india


the ATC was inspired by "Japan" and the inchies are "love"


I hope she got them because I dont want the dotee to be lost :(

I received a very cute and very unique set today from Sewarty:

First, the ATC was mounted on top of a little box which held the Dotee and the inchies - the ATC itself is very pretty:

The Dotee is so cute - the first shot isn't so great, he looks a little pitiful the way he was laying on my counter, but I had to shoot quickly because my daughter was obsessed with him and kept grabbing:

and a close-up of his face and little crown:

finally, the inchies - I really like the style of these - I think they are layers of sheer material with beads and ribbons sandwiched in between:


Thank you again!  I'm a little sad that my last package has arrived, but this has been a great swap!

I'm loving the gallery so far! Everyone is quite talented!!

I received my package from Sewarty yesterday. I love it! It's so bright and cheerful which is very welcomed because yesterday it was gray and raining and I had a headache so the cheery package was perfect!


Everything together. I just love the smily face! He's little crown fell off, but I've since glued it back on. The ATC is attached to the little box (which is perfect! I now have a spot to keep my ATCs and Inchies safe) and the inchies are made out of fabric. How clever!


And a picture of the beading on the Dotee's back. Love it!



This was another great round. Can't wait for the next one!

I received from craftyhsmom yesterday :)


Love the fabric for the dotee and the dangly dragonfly too :)


Love the inchies and the ATC :) Not sure if those extra bits fell off of something or are extra bits. But either way, I like everything. Thank you!

Co-Organizer's note: I'm back from vacation and have updated the sent/received info. Please check the first page to make sure your info is up-to-date!! I'll be updating feedback for my group later today.

And in swap news- I found two lovely packages waiting for me when I returned home. :)

First, from Katara- this cute Nesting Doll inspired Dotee. I love the ribbon tail!!


Then- she made me these cute inchies (love the use of the letter button) and this AMAZING ATC. I love them all- thanks, Katara!!


------------------------------

Then- from isabelchun, I received this chubby little nesting doll. Her face is so sweet!



The inchies and ATC feature her wonderful style of artwork. I always know when one of her papercrafts is on the front page, because I can recognize her style a mile away. :)

Angelicus had asked me to post pictures of the things that I sent but we've been dealing with family stuff and didn't have time until now.  So here is what I sent. 

Inchies in yellow boxes are hers


ATC

Here's what I received from NH822! Thanks so much again and sorry for the delay in pictures. Everything is lovely! :)

First, gorgeous bird Dotee! Love the colors and sequining:




My favorite part of the Dotee was the teeny tiny clay bird's nest dangling from it :)




The ATC and inchies are just perfect!




Thanks again!!! :-*

This is what I sent to one of the missing swappers in this group (no trash talking - personal stuff happens).

Her theme was "Love" so I made a tie-dyed felt heart:



The ATC:



And the inchies:



I think her other themes were Japan and random, so I obliged. Thanks for looking!

Soooo I'm discovering that I may not have taken a picture of the Dotee I sent, but I vaguely remember taking a picture of it. @[email protected] Chances are I took a picture of it but can't remember where it's hiding on my hard drive.... But here are the inchies and the ATC.

Oh, also, the Dotee was a red heart since one of her themes was love....

Since one of her themes was Japan (and I used to take Japanese at my high school and I'm obsessed with all things Asian, this was gonna be really fun to do lol), I went to town with it :D



This ATC is of the old Japanese flag, I have one hanging in my room. My dad brought it back from Japan about forty years ago, he tells me it's actually the old Japanese war flag, but I'm gonna need a fact check on that. Regardless, it's pretty. x) The kanji on the upper right hand corner reads "Nihon" or "Japan". The katakana along the bottom reads "SaraRii" or "Sara Lee". I really hope that I wrote it correctly, but thinking about it now, I may have fudged the last name slightly. I wrote " リイ。" However, it might have actually been " リー。 Regardless, I got the point across ^_^ <3



Sorry this pic is a bit blurry. The inchies read "Happiness", "Peace", "Love", "Tranquility"

I wasnt sure whether to post this here or in the personal swap gallery, but being as Sederick wasnt an official partner to me, I figured the PS gallery would be better. I did an angel package for him and he insisted on making me one as well.  :) Check it out!!

Hi Everyone! I am FINALLY posting pics from all 3 of my partners. It would have happened sooner, but we had to have a swap angel Southern Flower step in and I just got her stuff the other day:

firstly a huge apology to my partners for not posting a picture sooner, it is awful when your partner does not, but life has been chewing me up severly..and then it chewed up my camera..but its all back on track now.

These are the goodies that I received. Don't the inchies work well together, there was one ATC missing from a package when it arrived, I suspect the postman took a fancy to it, but not to worry, everything else was wonderful..thanks guys XXX

I love that everyone's work fits so well together, i think I might make a bunch more love themed inchies and frame them all up for my kitchen wall, one wall is having a love theme.

First I have to say, that zombie is so cool!

Here is the angel package that I sent to Ma Rut (these scans aren't the greatest but I wanted to share!):

For the ATC I chose her theme of "states"- I made one for my state of West Virginia and an extra one for Georgia, where she lives. For the inchies I chose her "bird" theme:



I also chose the "bird" theme for the dotee. This was the first time that I've hand embroidered on paper, and I was really happy with how this came out!



I had a lot of fun making these!

Ooooh! Wait! Was the nerdy inchie the epic circuit board type thingy with the winsauce metal thingies on it? It made it, I didn't take a picture of it because what happened was one of the inchies had stuck to it and then popped off it so I thought it was supposed to be worn with that inchie and I was like "Oh no! Did I pop glue or something?!" and I meant to ask you about that but I forgot to D: I'll post a picture of the nerdy inchie later today! D: I <3 the nerdy inchie too!!!

YES!  That's the nerdy one!  I loved it and was worried it didn't get there!  Also, how cute that Raul the Zombie's mustache matches the frenchman that you made!

P.S. Did you notice that the ATC's have a theme title?  It's Z.I.L.F.  as in.... Zombie I'd like to.... :) :) :)

Hello all!

Here's my package from Angelicus... starting with a sweet little bejewelled dotee, who's currently having a little lie down after her long trip:



Staying with the flowers theme, here are the inches.  Please excuse the photo, it looked better on my camera screen...



One of my other themes was rainbows, which inspired the ATC:



yay!

Hi all
So I went out to my mailbox yesterday and pulled out a padded envelope. Much to my surprise it was a swap package from Seeba7. In the package was a letter explaining that life had gotten in the way and she was sorry it took so long *L* Thanks seeba7 for coming through :)

I like the card very much and my wife really likes the steampunk inchies

The dotee is very cool

Better late then never I say :)
Thank you very much seeba7
