I just need to get my list sorted now  ;)

Post by: Super-Ted_Cullen! on June 04, 2011 03:40:37 AM
I'm hoping to join, although any sending out will have to be after the 23rd June; I have a plethora of A level exams prior to that. :) Am I right in thinking that we send  in the questionnaire to be approved and then send in the *wishlist* thing? Is there a standardised format for that, or is it a case of anything goes?

Edit: Ok, so after re-reading the instructions and filling out the questionnaire I think I have a better understanding. Also, I am going to have to hold out on signing up for a while because of my exams; there is no way possible that I could even really start crafting until the 23rd, which is after my birthday anyway. :( I already know who I would claim, and I would probably be able to send out on the 25th June; is it still possible for me sign up and indicate that claim now?

Post by: Super-Ted_Cullen! on June 11, 2011 03:12:41 PM
I think I may be nearly finished with my claim... Hopefully I'll be able to get it out this week. I have to send some other packages elsewhere as well, however, which means I want to send them all together. Unfortunately the other packages aren't finished... Still, I'm pretty happy with what I've done so far!
Also, Happy Birthday, Larissa-Rasputin! Hope you have/ had a fantastic day!

Received an awesome package from nostephot

First up is this little cutie!


Isn't she wonderful?  Straight off my wists.  I <3 this!

But wait, there's more!
She also sent me a ton of embroidery floss!  I've been wanting to get into embroidery and no place close to me carries any.  I have a ton of colors to choose from!


But wait!  There's more!
I also received some printed out instructions for various stitches (VERY helpful) and a "stitch lesson"  The numbers printed on the lines, really help me figure out where the needle should go.


But wait!  There's more!
She also sent me some patterns, man I cannot WAIT to try these out!  I also got a heat transfer pencil (which I somehow did not photograph)  How cool is that?!  I didn't even know such a thing existed!


Thanks again for the wonderful birthday present! :D

Title: Re: June 2011 Birthday Swap Discussion and Gallery
Post by: blupaisan on June 15, 2011 01:10:18 PM
I have received and I am thrilled to pieces.  MarleesMom made me a journal with some fabric I adore!!  She must have stalked me, because it is sooooo me.

is that fabric to die for or what??
This journal is so professionally put together. Here is the inside with more fabric covering the workings -

and finally a shot of the gold edging -

I am going to put my poems in this journal. I had better write some doozies to live up to the gorgeous container.
thank you very very much, MarleesMom. this was the first bday gift I opened (the big day is tomorrow.) I am so glad it got here for the 16th!  You rock.

I got my wonderful embroidery kit from TroubleT this week!

I'm  itching to try it out and now that pictures have been taken I'm going to dive in  :)

But wait! That's not all:

A Peep hoop! I am in love with this. Little Peep clouds and everything. I have a stuffed yellow Peep that looks just like the one TroubleT made me and both remind me of my old goat (I know, strange, but true) and that is a very good thing!

Thank you tons, TroubleT!

Hello fellow Geminis & Cancers!

I will have been here a month on June 26, and I'm planning on signing up as soon as it comes around.  I turned 28 on the 13th, and I had to spend my whole birthday rnning errands!  Boo!

So, anyways, keep an eye out for me in 5ish days :)

Received the most phenomenal package from blupaisan!!!!!! We are decorating our living room in a nauticalish theme (think more inside of a ship/piratey sort of theme than lighthouses (boo!)  

Anyhoo....I knew I was receiving wall art but I was unprepared for the total awesomeness the package contained!  She truly went above and beyond my wildest expectations!  I cannot express the amount of joy and glee this package  brought me.  My husband totally loved it as well, which is good, because it was going on the wall regardless of what he though!





blupaisan, if you have better pictures, feel free to post them as I was unable to fully capture all the wonderful nuances.   All of the little pictures on it are drawn beautifully.  I love the burn marks, the dirt, the candle drips, and the bloody thumbprint!  It came with this very entertaining letter.

"As you can see it has survived much such as a fire, candle drippings, dirt (probably from the time he (Captain Clark Thatcher from the good ship Nanny B. which now rests on the ocean bottom somewhere off Fiji) was buried alive and managed to get out) and the bloody thumbprint he left when he killed Black Bobby, the man who did the burying."

Wow! What a great map!

This isn't for this swap but it does relate and I had to share. I partnered with StickerChic87 for the latest IYP. She saw that I was in the b'day swap and decided to send me this fantastic package out of the blue!

What a sweetheart! Thank you for the complete surprise, StickerChic!

Welcome Jo! :)

Awesome work from blupaisan, and what a sweet surprise from Stickerchic!

I got very spoiled by skittlebub!! ;D We both love Dr Who!!!



She sent me a TARDIS plastic bag bag (very useful!), a sweet felt TARDIS needlebook, TARDIS buttons and a handcarved TARDIS stamp (<3 <3), wool yarn in one of my fave colours, AND she even drew me a Dalek!! She said several of these crafts are new skills for her (I wouldn't have guessed that),and I feel honoured to have them :) Thank you so much for a lovely birthday parcel!!

WHIMIES!

It was so cool getting so much great things to look at and items that I will be able to craft with in the future!


You make it look so neat. I know when you got that bag it was all random and mishmoshed. Glad you like all your whimsies. I hope you can use the tote bag too. Happy birthday!

Wasn't bad... Everything stayed in the bag during transit :) 
The bag is just right.  I used it today to take things to work with me!
Love the Mickey Shaped Cardboard Cutouts - Used them to mount an item for the Disney swap I am in.  Shhhh... haven't sent yet so... Shhhh!   ;D

Eeep!  I can't believe I almost missed this.  Working on my Questionaire right now, even thought I should be in bed.

My birthday is the 30th, and I have to work all day.  Knowing that I'll be able to make one of you wonderful people something nice for your birthday (even though most of them have already passed) will make the day so much better.

Oh no! I almost missed out on this swap! Working on my questionnaire right now and then it's off to peruse the boards. Hopefully I'll find someone with a late birthday. Mine was on the 6th (and it was my 18th--squee!).

We've had several people join late in the month so if you are interested in making even more birthday smiles, go check out the Birthday Lists! :)

Post by: scarlet_nights on June 24, 2011 02:34:40 PM
Im at my limit of 2. hopefully they will get recived before the month is done and I can make another claim. Everyone should get a present for their birthday. I also updated my list, i always forget things i want to put down.

Post by: TroubleT on June 26, 2011 02:41:18 AM
We're in the last few days of this Birthday Swap! :)

And now a message from your organizer...


1. Claims will close on June 30 at 6 pm (or as close as I can get to that). I will be out of town starting the 29th but I'll have net access every night (perk of having a computer geek DH!) so I'll close claims as soon as we are settled for the night.

2. We have had a couple of people join the swap in the last couple of days. If you are thinking of making another claim, check out their lists. :)

3. Also on June 30, I will start giving feedback to those in the swap who have completed their swap obligations.

4. I have a couple of people who have not posted pictures of the packages that they have received. Please note that posting pictures is part of the swap rules. If you personally can not post them, contact the person who claimed you and ask them to post the pictures if possible. We all want to see your birthday goodies!

I was browsing the birthday lists looking to claim someone (not my b-day month, but lots of excess supplies on hand!), and I just gotta say that your really need to put your location on your wish lists - (your state if USA, your country if outside USA) PLEASE.  It is mentioned in the swap rules btw.

I have some interest in claiming a couple of people, but don't have the extra funds for international shipping this month.  I hate to get someone's hopes up, then say no, sorry, no present for you. . .   That would suck more than just not claiming at all.

**I just realized that I could look at the Craftsters' profiles to find their locations, so PM'ed TroubleT with my claims.  Happy birthday, Junies. . .


Title: Re: June 2011 Birthday Swap Discussion and Gallery
Post by: TroubleT on June 26, 2011 07:40:30 AM
Good point jcorn! That is a requirement.

You can also PM me if you need to know if someone is in another country. I don't mind. :)

I received a lovely birthday surprise from phnxreign99!!

Four soft crocheted cloths and a matching crochet basket :)



They are really well made, and I will enjoy using them a lot. The photo is a bit dim (winter light here), but they are really nice pretty colours. Thank you so much!! A proper card is on its way to you :)

Post by: nellyeagle on June 27, 2011 10:07:01 PM
I am so sorry that I missed so much! But i finally have time posting what the wonderful TroubleT and Larissa-Rasputin has sent me for my birthday!
First off TroubleT sent me a fantastic stenciled dragon t-shirt that I freaking LOVE!!

I wear it whenever I can! My friends are already sick of it but that just makes me love this shirt even more!
It's on the left side close to where the heart is so i like to pretend its a dragon after my own heart. Yes im cheesy!
I love the design!!!
And she also sent a bunch of freezer paper great for stenciling plus she was even nice enough to write that she has a great stenciling tutorial!

Hooray for stencils!!
And she also sent me this nice b-day card that came with instructions on how to prolong the life of my shirt which i have been following because i love it way too much!

Oh and she also wrapped the shirt for me like a present unfortunately with my excitement i forgot to take a pic but thank you so much in wrapping it!! I loved ripping it open to see the wonderful surprise that was inside!!

Now on to Larissa-Rasputin's awesome gifts!!
First off the opening of the box!


Then the awesome sculpy clay she sent me!!! I LOVE her so much for her sending me this plus she was thoughful for sending it white! She gave me all the colors in one go!


Now on to my main present which i think is so cool!

TOP HAT!!!!
I Have no idea how she knew but the feathers go perfectly with my hair becuase my hair is brown with orange streaks on it! Its so adorable!! And underneath the hat was a letter! It surprised me and i never would have noticed if it wasnt for my clumsiness.
And cause i like it so much here is another shot with my teddy wearing it!

This made my family smile!
And yes i would love to know how you did the top hat!!

Anyway those were my gifts and im so grateful that i had wonderful people sending me great gifts and having fun in this swap. though I am sorry I took so long responding. I Loved everything!

I recived from Calabaza today and it was an awsome package. She sent me a Fullmetal Alchemist pillow and some great metalic embroidery floss.

I recently got into this show and love it! This is my first piece of FA swag and I cant wait to get more.

She also sent me some great floss. I have the hardest time finding the more unusual colors and she sent me a ton.

Thank you Calabaza for a great package!

@TroubleT -- I'll send you the DC when I get home from dance class tonight, probably around 9 pm Pacific time.

@MeganCrafts -- I'll send you the DC also, and I just want to warn you that I stuffed in a few extras. I hope you like them! :)

I got home from the store earlier today and found not one, but two packages waiting for me.

One was the supplies I need to make amylouwho93's present.
The other was my package from her.

She sent me this awesome hand-drawn card.


And my R2 hoop!!  He's so awesome.  I'm moving starting next week sometime and I'm so excited to start my hoopla wall.




She also sent me tea.  The bf is really excited about this and spent a good 10 minutes smelling it.



Thank you so much Amy.

Paper stars are the best! My boyfriend now engaged, I first started 100 stars for Valentine's day, then this year I decided to make another 100. He really enjoyed getting them. I am going to continue making 100 more for the next couple Valentine's. In 10 years, we would have 1,000. Which would be good luck! :-D

Yay! I'm so glad you like the stuff. :) I'm also really glad that the hairclip survived transit, because I wasn't sure if it was going to! ;) How squished was the giant star?

Also, if you want to make some more of the stars, I can email you the patterns I used in PDF format. That goes for anyone, by the way. :D

Glad you had a good birthday!!

Paper crafting supplies galore!Holy wow, she not only sent a TON but every single one of my interests are present and accounted for! I spent over half an hour just sorting them into the piles in the picture! There are book pages, pictures and illustrations, a couple of things that look like they might have been book covers or notebook covers, slides, postcards, neat-o supplies as well as plain paper. Plus a card! Plus...


Inchies! Beautiful old-fashioned inchies! 2 dozen of them! I can not pick a favorite. I LOVE them!

Thank you tons and tons, calluna! You ROCK!

Post by: Super-Ted_Cullen! on July 07, 2011 07:05:12 AM
Hi! This is my second time trying to post this; for some reason it didn't work before!

I received from Skittlebub the other day, and I loved it! I actually received it when my family was out of the house and my mum tried to make me wait until everyone else was in before I could open it. I managed to convince her otherwise, though!

I was really excited as soon as I got the brown paper off because I could see this little Toy story logo inside, which just made me really excited. :)



Once I got it open, the first thing I saw was this awesome Toy Story Cross stitch, which I am really excited to try. After I finish up what I am working on at the moment, this will definitely be the first thing I do.



Next Up was an absolutely gorgeous fascinator (which is unfortunately impossible to get a good action shot of) and matches perfectly a turquoise corset I just bought. I will try and get an action shot of it tonight, when I wear it out. :)



Finally, an extra which you could see in a previous pic, a nice big ball of black wool! I'd completely run out and couldn't get any more for ages. :)



I'll be using it up pretty soon, methinks!

Thanks again, Skittlebub, and TroubleT for making this such an awesome swap!


Rebecca.

Here are the pictures of my awesome present from jo_mama.

She sent me a dinosaur shirt!





These pictures don't do it justice at all.  The colors and the detail are amazing.  I can't wait to wear it, it fits perfectly.

Attached to the outside of the packages was an asteroid pendant to wear with my dinosaur.  I love it.



She also sent me buttons and a really awesome card.




Thank you so much Jo.

Got my wonderful homemade goodies from RhymeswOrange today... Other day that made me smile! Yesterday I got my Button swap package, and today I got my birthday package! Here's the goodies.

A couple weeks ago, RhymeswOrange sent me a teaser picture, and I had several ideas what it was, and I got this!
Hedgehog Amiqurumi! This is my first one! I fell in love. My dog, Rosco wants to chew on it!


She also sent me "Twilight-Bella" fingerless mitts- She crochet it!

Here's a geeky me! It's hot outside so I took the photo quick and went back inside- Ignore those bruises on my arm.


Thank you!! I love everything!! I will be sending you a thank you card in the mail soon. Just need your address!!

I received from MeganCrafts today! I got home after an arduous 8-hour drive home from Canada to find a lurvly package waiting for me--I am SO happy right now!  Megan did some great stalking and found out my favorite color, hobbies, and more--I'm impressed!  ;D




So much stuff!!


Card #1: The cutest hand-drawn bike ever!


Card #2 and STICKERS!


After pulling this gem out of the box I ran to the bathroom and stuck it on my head...


Yes I was wearing grody clothes b/c I had been in the car forEVER...please excuse my yuckiness!


Yay for purple and bicycles!!!


B-Day pin...I pinned this on myself too and paraded around :)


Cassette tape wallet straight from my Wists! It used to be a Kenny G Christmas tape :P


All together! I also got some wonderful tea: Green tea with mint, Green tea with Pomegranate, Salat Green tea, and two varieties of hand-mixed: Green tea with mango and Japanese pan-fried Green tea!

THANK YOU, MEGAN!!

I'm so glad you liked everything!  It was my first time making one of those wallets and it was my first time embroidering anything. 

The bf and I got a bunch of weird, random tapes at a thrift store awhile ago and never used them, so I figured, what better use that?  I have a Forever Plaid one all torn apart to make a wallet for myself.

I received two beautiful teacup candles from scarlet_nights for my birthday. Yay!! Unfortunately, only 1 of them made it unscathed. I will post pictures in just a bit. Today is my son's first birthday, so we are a little busy. :)
Can't wait see photos of the teacup candle!

Still waitin for my package from scarlet_nights. According to USPS, I was suppose to receive yesterday; never came, today, never came. Hope tomorrow.

Yay! Finally got my package from scarlet_nights! It finally came in the mail today after 3 days of waiting. Scarlet_nights almost couldn't give away one of the rings, but I got to have it. Sorry for the darkness- it's soo hot here and have all he windows shut. So it's dark in here. :-(
3 rings and one cute large flower brooch! I am wearing one at the moment!

Paint Splatter ring-

Playing with my "Fish eye effect" on my camera-


The ring idea was on my wist, and it was her first time to give it a go and try it out. She mentioned that she had a great time making these. Thanks for making them, and I really love them!! Thanks for trying something new and I get to have them first! :-D
