Great start to the gallery! ;D

Me too, but as long as you sent the required you're good. :)

This is how I always feel when I'm waiting for my partner to get their stuff and open it. I'm always worried about 'sizing' and if they'll like everything or not!

I received my package from jimscupcake and I LOVE everything.
I got a really AWESOME and original wall hanging



An AMAZING bag, which I am scared to use because I don't want to get it dirty... It's got a Dean side and a Sam side...




Cool magnets, it's funny that we both made each other magnets... And a really cute tiny "Metallicar". I did rotate the picture but for someone reason it went back to how I originally took it when I saved it into Craftster Photo Housing. Sorry...


Close-up of the cute Metallicar. The car actually fits on the black middle section of the wall hanging and looks really cute.



THANK YOU JIMSCUPCAKE I LOVE my package... :)

I am soooo glad you like it! I know you like hooplas but I can't hold a needle due to carpal so I made my own kind. I love useful things so I made the hoopla with pockets to hold things.

I also love to make those little Impalas I make them a lot. :)


Title: Re: Supernatural Swap Gallery
Post by: Eclectic Dreamer on June 11, 2013 06:49:29 PM
jimscupcake: You made the impala? Um... now we all want one :P

Post by: margaron on June 11, 2013 10:12:24 PM
My partner Torimiko received a few days ago and I have been asked to post pictures of what I sent, so here we go!

But firstly, I would like to say to all you people who embroider and do all those hoops that I am crazy appreciative now to just how much effort goes into those amazing pieces. How did I gain this appreciation? I tried it.... it took forever.... it might never happen again XD lol

Torimiko's favourite character was Cas, so naturally, I had to make something Cas-yish (new word yay!)

Full piece:

Up close of stitching:
(http://s320.photobucket.com/user/ecjwrscwluv/media/Swaps/photo1_zps1d5ac9d4.jpg.html)

His little name:
(http://s320.photobucket.com/user/ecjwrscwluv/media/Swaps/photo_zps2244d346.jpg.html)

and the back.... It's a little frumpy, but this was my first hoop ever so I'm pretty proud of it! :D

(http://s320.photobucket.com/user/ecjwrscwluv/media/Swaps/photo2_zps441ab26c.jpg.html)

Then I figured that since summer is coming, who doesn't like a good beach tote? So I did some painting to make this one a little more bad-a$$ :D

(http://s320.photobucket.com/user/ecjwrscwluv/media/Swaps/photo5_zps079888b7.jpg.html)

and of course, no swap is complete without chocolate, but I don't have a picture of that :D haha!

margaron WOW... that's a great job for your first attempt at embroidery...

Here's my wonderful package I got from Eclectic Dreamer. It's pretty pic heavy just to warn you.

First up is a group shot of the whole package. I forgot to get the Alaskan smoked sea salt in the pic.



Next is a close up of the yarn. She sent "Angel" yarn which is pure white, with hints of red and brown "Demon" since they're not always so innocent. Then there is the "Demon" yarn which is brownish-black with traces of red for blood and yellow for the Yellow Eyed Demon.



Then there is the most amazing thing ever! It's a little altered Altoid tin that's been made into an Ouija Board. The detail on it is sooo amazing. It even has a little planchette. There's also a very cool Castiel Bookmark.



And a pic of just the Ouija Board.



And finally a picture of the inside of the Ouija Board. Once you open it up it is filled with all the goodies you need to go hunting. There is vials of salt, oil, and holy water. The salt is on a chain so you can take it anywhere. There's also a very cool charm of angel wings.



I love my package and had a ton of fun in this swap!


Title: Re: Supernatural Swap Gallery
Post by: Eclectic Dreamer on June 12, 2013 03:40:30 PM
Noushi: Not sure you noticed, but the paper around the bottom of the tin says a phrase. It's not really related to the swap at all, but I thought it kinda cool how it worked out. BTW: That's my first ever altered tin. I can't wait to try another :)


Title: Re: Supernatural Swap Gallery
Post by: spikefan on June 12, 2013 06:35:44 PM
Great packages! I love the "Road So Far" and adorable Cas hoops. And that tiny Ouija board is so cool!


Title: Re: Supernatural Swap Gallery
Post by: whenindoubtsew on June 14, 2013 01:19:22 AM
I <3 those hoops - both have gorgeous images and colour combinations. The stitching on that hoop is brilliant margaron.

I love that altered tin as well - totally can't tell it was your first one eclectic dreamer  :D

Now onto the awesomeness I received from our fearless organiser!!

I have always admired spikefan's cool ami's. Looky what I found in my package - not 1, not 2 but 3 incredible ami's of our favorite supernatural protectors - Sam, Cas and Dean - I was secretly hoping spikefan would make me some  ;D They are perfect



And a cool charm bracelet (look at all those charms), angel wing earrings for a little Castiel to wear and an awesome Castiel shrinky dink on a key chain. The detail is unbelievable.



Thanks so much spikefan - I hope you like what I've sent you half as much as I love what you made for me  ;D


Title: Re: Supernatural Swap Gallery
Post by: spikefan on June 14, 2013 02:38:32 PM
Glad you liked everything! ;D


I received an awesome package today from whendindoubtsew.

She sent an awesome Dean inspired wallet. I love how the necklace is the strap to keep the phone in, so clever.




A really cool Dean and Cas hoop. I couldn't see the images at first but when I was taking the picture on my camera I saw it, so cool.


A cool Dean, Sam, and Cas framed art piece.


A cute Cas figure and a Sorry board game keychain, that is one of my favorite parts of that episode.


And handcarved pie and Impala stamps.


Thanks so much whenindoubtsew!


Title: Re: Supernatural Swap Gallery
Post by: whenindoubtsew on June 14, 2013 03:59:42 PM
Yeah - it arrived - I was most worried about Cas' wings breaking off  :o BTW - the wings glow in the dark.

Glad you liked it and the wallet is already getting use  :D

I'm in awe of all of these great packages! Wow!  I especially love all of the hoops, jewellry & what a great idea for the laundry soap  ;)  Never bad to have some good looking men helping with the chores!

I also sent a hoop to my partner, along with a bracelet & a Dean stuffie.  ...  She requested these things among others wish list, so I hope she was happy.  She let me know that she received a few weeks ago, so I'm going to go ahead a post some photos for her.  The questionnaire said that "Yellow Fever" was her favourite episode, and the scene where the cat scares Dean is her favourite part, so I watched the clip she provided and found a jpeg of his face



I translated it to felt/embroidery and created this hoop :)


Then I made a Dean stuffie (complete with necklace ;)) out of felt


Apparently I forgot to take a picture of the bracelet...  It was a crocheted embroidery floss bracelet with a black band and gold star charm in the centre.  Very simple, but I was happy with how it turned out.

Here is a picture of both pieces together, and one of Chubbs trying to keep the Dean doll :)




I hope you like them!  Thanks for organizing spikefan :)  Appreciate your work!

Great packages! I will never look at my borax laundry detergent the same again, so clever.  :D That Dean hoop is hilarious and such great detail and that stuffie Dean is adorable.

I received my package from tormiko a few weeks ago and I just have not had a moment to post a picture.  So sorry for the delay but here is my package!

A hunter's kit in a woodburnt box, borax detergent and coasters! 


Thanks so much!


Here is the package I sent to her:
Castiel shadow box, Cas pillowcase, Supernatural box, 4 Mystery Spot coasters, angel wing earrings and a skull keychain

Post by: torimiko on June 17, 2013 08:50:30 PM
I don't remember if I put it on or not, but the laundry soap only takes 1 tablespoon per load, and the artwork on the outside of the jars is by peitie-Madame of son fan art fame!

My partner has received, but hasn't posted pics yet. If she doesn't get a chance to post them by tomorrow I'll post the ones I took.

Sorry it's taken a few days...

I forgot to take pics of the goodies: candied pecans and popcorn with pecans.

Then... amazing shirts!! First: Bobby and his famous word "Idjit!"... Wish I looked better in this pic but of multiple shots this is the best I could get. My friend kept trying to get full me, and all I wanted was the shirt. :\


Then: Ghostfacers... for the friend that introduced me to Supernatural :) He was so excited about his shirt... well, he first wanted to steal mine... until he saw his. He slept in it then wore it all the next day.


I have a couple more items to get picture of. I've been whiny about the whole take a pic with my cell phone and all the work it takes to upload thing. will get them done tonight. tomorrow (I have other pics to take & upload so I'll do it all at one time).

My swap partner Theboywonder received awhile ago but is probably busy helping out his mom. so, I guess I will share pics of what I sent. I tried to go with a useful type theme.  :)

Messenger Bag

Collage Notebook


Mini Keychain of Jon Winchesters journal with plenty of blank pages


Sam & Dean necklace with emergency salt

and Supernatural Kitchen Towels


so, glad my partner liked everything. X)

Sorry for not posting the rest sooner! I've been trying to get pics of a number of swaps but I hate the drawn out process of cell phone and my digital cam is driving me insane. Finally done though...

Matchbox Alter / Altered Matchbox:


Enochian letter "S" (Not sure if I have it upside down or not)--it's a broach/cloak pin:

Ack! I am so sorry, I really meant to post pictures, but life has been incredibly chaotic. My mom is recovering from double knee replacement surgery and I am in the midst of moving to a new job from my old one where I have been for almost 6 years. So, things are a bit overwhelming. I should have posted the pictures earlier this week. You did an awesome job, it was so worth the wait! My daughter did make off with most of what you sent, though. She thought it was the coolest. She has already worn the necklace and used the  bag on more than one occasion.

Just a couple of quick shots of the Supernatural stuff I sent to Koreena's hubby as a swap angel!! Koreena's been having camera troubles so hopefully she doesn't mind me putting them up. It was the first time I have had to craft for a fellow so was glad when she let me know he liked them  :D

First was a paracord watch band and bracelet in blue and gray with supernatural inspired shrinky dink tags (chevy symbol and impala licence plate). I got some inspiration from Pinterest for the technique and use of hardware for the closure.


Wayward son keyloop and bottlecaps magnets with images from the amazing Etsy seller JaggedLittlePill42.


And last a trio of socks using the some of the same bottle-caps images printed on fabric and then sewn onto the sock.


It was nice to have an extra opportunity to do some Supernatural craft - sorry the postage takes so long Koreena  :o

I had just logged on here to update you!  Funny timing :)  Yes, "camera troubles" is an understatement for how things are going right now...  completely annoyed.  Thanks for posting these beautiful pics!  I will add mine whenever things start cooperating again.

whenindoubtsew is right:  We LOVED all of the things that were in this package!!  My guy had this goofy grin on his face when he was checking everything out...  He tried everything on immediately & was in awe of all of the little details you included.  He actually didn't believe me when I explained shrinky dink haha~ He says a great big THANKS to you for being so thoughtful & generous  ;D  The magnets went directly on his toolbox ~ a top honour in his books haha

Thank you again for being so kind.  You really did make the wait very much worth while!!  Cheers~
