Alright, here goes...haven't posted pics before so let's hope this works so you all can see the great stuff I got...

If all goes well, you should be seeing the group picture!

And this is my scarf! This thing is huge, like a foot across and longer than I am tall! I can't imagine where she found the time!

The front of the journal...

and the back!

A bracelet with all sorts of hp pics in the little frames...

The Mirror of Erised in compact form!

And inside!

The wonderful bag in action (already stuffed with things, as you can see!)

And a wand that her friend sent along, so I can practice that ever-important swish and flick!
Thank you so much potatovixen! ^ - ^

Wow what a most wonderful package - nice!

Post by: potatovixen on March 04, 2006 10:24:48 AM
yay! I don't know if I mentioned it in the note I wrote you, but the blue fabric on that bag dyed my hands (and my face. don't ask) when I was making it..... so be careful!  ;D
I'm glad you like everything!

Post by: ChibikoKy on March 04, 2006 05:17:26 PM
Also, sent out today, so you should be getting your package in 4-7 days.
...also, because it sort of amuses me, it's in the same box. It just happened to be the right size, so this box has traveled from one side of the country to the other...twice now. It's better traveled than I am!

What a great package you got!  Love your wand!  I also love the bracelet.  How did you make that potatovixen, if I may ask?

I sent out my package on Friday, but it's going overseas, so it may be a little while.

The little frames were from a bracelet kit I got at Michael's. All you do is cut the pictures the right size and slide them in through the bottom.

I'm actually mailing in the morning.  I got an idea at the last minute, and just had to follow through.  Heehee. ;D

Hey, everyone! I just got my package from Goldfish Girl, and it's brilliant!

Here are the splendid, fuzzy, dark mark armwarmers GF Girl made me. You see, the left one has the dark mark knit in white (Sorry, it was kind of hard to photograph).

GF Girl also made me this awesome Morsmordre bag (It also has a dark mark on the inside of the strap, but I forgot to get a pic :P)!

And lastly, here I am, sleepily modeling the best HP scarf and hat set ever Honestly! It all look really well made. I can barely believe I've finally got a Harry Potter scarf, and in my preferred pattern, too!

Thank you so much, Goldfish Girl, for swapping with me, and Sad. for organizing! It's been, in the imortal words of Fred (or George?) Weasley, "...Positively Corking" ;).

Has everyone mailed their packages?  Here's what I see so far:

Mailed:  fairyprincess, coolgrin, chibikoky, potatovixen, SevsOnlyGirl, GoldfishGirl  (I'm sure everyone mailed, but didn't announce it.  Apparently we feel the need to announce everything!LOLOLOL)

Received:  fairyprincess, chibikoky and GreenWhimsy

The PO told me that my package should arrive in 1-2 weeks to my partner, so that should be by the end of this week, I sent on March 3rd.  I just PM'd SAD to ask if things are going well with her since we haven't seen her lately. 

Hope to see more goodies soon!

I'm in collage heaven   ;D    Wow ShyArtist I bow down your collage skills, the detail is wonderful - I love all of it. The journal/scrapbook is so nice - pictures do not do it crd. The cover has so much texture and layers, it's wonderful - The bookmarks are so nice with a quote from each of the champions on the back. The two pictures of Harry and his name are mini canvas's - they are ultra cool (plus she gave me a website for more ideas www.canvasconcepts.com - can't wait to check it out) Boy that trunk is too cool - it's Mad Eye Moody's trunk and inside is some very nice paper - will make good use of them  ;D
Thanks so much ShyArtist you outdid yourself.

Well, it looks like half of us have received, so that's great!  I've seen a lot of awesome stuff so far and can't wait to see more.  I just wish the post would hurry up and deliver Sad's package now!



Title: Re: Darker Side of HP Swap Gallery.
Post by: ChibikoKy on March 15, 2006 11:06:29 AM
And potatovixen's...they totally told me 4-7 days. Haven't sent many packages that far though, so I believed them...it arrived in her city this morning though, so with luck...*crosses fingers*


Title: Re: Darker Side of HP Swap Gallery.
Post by: kahluakiggy on March 15, 2006 11:42:44 AM
redpopsicles got hers, so I was going to post pics to calm your nerves, but then I realized two things:
1) All of my pics came out either too light, too dark, or blurry.  Yay crappy camera! *sigh*
2) I don't know how to post pics.
lol.
At least I can fix #2 easily enough, I'm sure there's a thread about it on here.  As for #1, sadly, I could go to Walmart, buy a $30 digital camera, and it would be better than my camera (which was a several hundred dollar digital camera - 7 years ago...).  Oh, well. ;D


Title: Re: Darker Side of HP Swap Gallery.
Post by: potatovixen on March 15, 2006 12:25:42 PM
Let me start by saying that my legs hurt from running up and down the stairs (and almost tripping and falling on my face when the mailman got here).

Totally worth it. I LOVE the stuff I got. It just got here about ten minutes ago, and I have just enough time to post a few pictures before I go to work. ^_^


The almighty group shot! Contents include:
a supercool messenger bag
a t-shirt that says "Kill the spare"
a "self-inking quill" (which i will totally use in class. ^_^)
three stamps
two bracelets with the trapped bar pattern from the PoA/GoF scarves. (in gryffindor and slytherin colors)
a note with the most adorable little self-portrait of 'Chibi Ky' with her swap package.


Close up of the quote on the bag. This is actually my favorite quote from pretty much the entire series, so I just about peed myself when I saw this.

the sides of the bag have pretty stars.  ;D


And a close-up of the t-shirt, which I will almost certainly be wearing to school tomorrow.

Thanks so much, ChibikoKy! I love everything! The swap anxiety is over! (And I use way too many exclamation points, too.) By the way, I meant to include a CD in your package, and I can't remember if I sent it or not. I haven't seen it lying around the house anywhere, so I'm assuming I sent it, but I just wanna make sure.  ::)

Thanks sad., for organizing, it was great!


Title: Re: Darker Side of HP Swap Gallery.
Post by: fairyprincessbeaniebaby on March 15, 2006 12:26:25 PM
hello fellow hp fans, i have a confession to make. i have not yet read the sixth book. i chose to remain in my happy place at the end of book 5 where in my mind these couples work:
herm-ron
ginny-dean, followed by nevile followed by draco (draco goes good,and leaves his family)
harry-luna
wotsername(the bitch in slyrtherin) gets struck by an illegal love potion and becomes obcessed with crabbe n goyle
snape hooks lupin on the rebound, they take in draco as a surrigate son

i am ignoring the sixth book until i know the release date of the seventh, so i'm not waiting on edge for years
but a friend recently blabbed (after some prodding) that in the 6th book *shudders with horror* snape goes eviland kills dumbledore
Oh, fellow hp obcessers, is this true???


Title: Re: Darker Side of HP Swap Gallery.
Post by: Sad. on March 15, 2006 12:40:45 PM
I don't think he went evil.  There's like half a book devoted to that plot, so it'd take aaaaages to explain it all.

But to sum it up in a nutshell; he saved Draco's ass.


Title: Re: Darker Side of HP Swap Gallery.
Post by: SevsOnlyGirl on March 15, 2006 12:48:18 PM
Sad is exactly right.  If you want my view on Snape as Judas and why he did what he did, let me know and I'll explain!  There's a whole theory there.LOL



Title: Re: Darker Side of HP Swap Gallery.
Post by: ChibikoKy on March 15, 2006 05:20:55 PM
Oh yeah! CD! It didn't make it into the group shot...or any shot, for that matter, cuz it was in my CD player...*blush* Is Harry and the Potters, and is very spiffy, and has a lovely potterpuffs Draco and Harry on it. And SQUEE! It arrived! And I am sooo tickled you like it all, and especially the stars on the sides of the bag. Because I love that too.  :D


Title: Re: Darker Side of HP Swap Gallery.
Post by: kahluakiggy on March 15, 2006 08:47:16 PM
OK.  I'm more testing what I've learned than showing pics, because, as I said earlier, they suck.  Anywho, here we go (I hope...):
Tom Riddle shirt...


Patches - a few chapter illustrations, Slytherin crest and another Tom...




More later (but not from me - lol).
Yes, I did make more than that!! ;D

ETA: Yay, it worked!  *does her freaky little happy dance* ;D  Woohoo!!!


Title: Re: Darker Side of HP Swap Gallery.
Post by: SevsOnlyGirl on March 16, 2006 06:44:44 AM
Nice stuff Kahlua!  See, pictures aren't that hard, are they?LOL

How did you make the patches?  Those are cute.



Title: Re: Darker Side of HP Swap Gallery.
Post by: kahluakiggy on March 16, 2006 09:09:38 AM
Thanks!  I got the idea for the patches from here (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=44769.0).  And since I had space under the other iron-on pics, I figured, hey, I'll make patches! :D 


Title: Re: Darker Side of HP Swap Gallery.
Post by: GreenWhimsy on March 16, 2006 09:47:10 AM
Wotcher, craftsters ;D?

Goldfish_girl hasn't been around for a few days, so I thought I'd post some pictures of what she recieved from me :). Sorry if they (the pics) are huge :-\.

The Lot:

This, right here, is my interpretation of the Half-Blood Prince's potions book, plus a hand-sculpted Hogwarts house pin:


The book started out a pretty ugly journal. I re-covered it with paper, painted it a rusty red, gave the page edges a gold leaf-effect, hand-drew the lettering, distressed and spattered it, and used old HP calander pages for inserts.

The writing on the very bottom reads "This book is property of the Half-Blood Prince!"


Here's the pin, again, plus a sad-looking Harry bookmark (bought) and a Harry and the Potters pin from one of their concerts.

And here are close ups of the greeting/note cards I made. The illustrations are all my own, and were printed on to card stock with my brother's computer (mine was out of ink :P).

Neville and The Unbreakable Vow:

The trio and The Kiss:

I also sent a sculpted Harry figurine, but he came out kind of botched and I was a little ashamed to take a picture :P. Goldfish_girl can post one, though if she wants ::).
Well, I hope you all enjoyed looking at everything as much as I enjoyed crafting it!


Title: Re: Darker Side of HP Swap Gallery.
Post by: coolgrin on March 16, 2006 09:51:09 AM
OOOH I like. GreenWhimsy the potions book is awesome. I'm still waiting.

Damn you US postal service. :'(

and that potions book is wonderful!

I just called home and was told I received a package from Australia. Yippee. I can't wait for the work day to be over.  :D

Post by: Sad. on March 16, 2006 11:07:39 AM
I got a note through the door telling me there was a parcel for me at the post office, and got all excited.  It wasn't it sadly. ):


Title: Re: Darker Side of HP Swap Gallery.
Post by: SevsOnlyGirl on March 16, 2006 11:56:30 AM
That potions book is bloody brilliant!  I'm entirely green with jealousy right now!  Your hogwarts pin turned out quite nicely.  I'm feeling a bit anxious now that my stuff isn't as "cute" as it could be. 

Sad - I got all excited about your post...until I read the ending.  *sigh*  Why does overseas have to take so long????  Ofcourse, if the package had been under 4lbs, I could have afforded to send it the faster route.  Next time I'll know.



Title: Re: Darker Side of HP Swap Gallery.
Post by: ShyArtist on March 16, 2006 04:17:54 PM
 ;D I can finally post my photos - my internet was down for a couple days, not only could I not post my swap but I couldn't do anything internet related! I was losing my mind for a bit...  ;)

Anyways, here are the wonderful items from the package goatgoddess sent me:


First, two lovely little magnets - I could not get the pictures on them to show up with my camera, but there's Hedwig and then Harry and Draco. They're so great because my desk has metal bars and I'm decorating my office area in Moon and Stars / Harry Potter.


This is a great lightbox with a picture of the Trio in some pretty "dark" surroundings. I need to dig out my xmas lights to put inside. I'm going to keep it on one of the shelves on my desk closest to the outlet. Very cool!!


I laughed when I opened this box up - because it was very hard to open due to the paint and the Mad Eye Moody Trunck I had made goatgoddess was doing the same thing. I was so worried she wouldn't be able to get the darn thing open.


Inside the box, which I thought was very cool. I love little embellishments like this.


Here is some lovely harry potter fabric - this is sooo perfect because I've been finding old harry potter tshirts (from when the movies first came out) at the thrift stores and now I can make a great blanket for my office. Also some stickers - yay stickers!! and a lovely little note from goatgoddess.


close up of fabric


These might be my favorite!! They're tacks and since we're redecorating my room I can't hang my bulletin board yet. Well where I put it my cat seems to find it and either use the board as a scratching post or he pulls all the tacks out with his mouth and leaves them laying on the board. When I go to pick it up, every things falls to my feet!! I put these on the board to see if he could pull them out and he can't. I should have taken a photo of him trying though!! But I really don't want him chewing on them so I just put the board up on my highest desk shelf. Anyways, I love these tacks, they have so much personality.

Goatgoddess - Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!! I loved all of it so much!!

Oooooh


Ahhhhh


TA DA

This is my favorite. I have a turtle LOL.

My own notebook


Earrings


My own dragon, owl, and quidditch ball. Ha. Too cute


And a HP CD.

Loved this swap.

I'm especially happy with the quidditch turtle becase I saw something like this on another swap and wanted someone to make me one.  Thank you fairyprincessbeanie baby.

Sorry about wonky pic. My camera was acting weird.

Goatgoddess - Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!! I loved all of it so much!!


so glad you liked your package - I know I thought about my box sticking after seeing the trunk stuck I was hoping it dry out enough by the time it got there - nope  :P
Sorry about that - I guess the paint swells the paper mache - sure do like that trunk and everything else though.

Boy I wouldn't have enjoyed no internet - glad you are back  ;D

Wow, everything is so fantastic!  You all did such a nice job on things!

The only ones I can see that haven't received yet are:  me and Sad - but ours may take longer, it's been 2 weeks since I sent out and it's not there yet. 

Kahlau - did you receive?

Kahlua - did you receive?

Not yet - redpopsicles let me know last week that she would be running late on this.  She pm'd me a couple of days ago to tell me she got her package and that she had a few more things to do, and mine will be out by tomorrow.  I can't wait!!! ;D


Title: Re: Darker Side of HP Swap Gallery.
Post by: SevsOnlyGirl on March 17, 2006 08:23:58 AM
Sad - it's a box, over 4lbs., so that's probably what's at the PO for you!  I'm suffering from swap anxiety now!LOL

Kahlau - how nice the redpopsicles let you know what's going on.  Sometimes our crafts just run away with us, don't they?LOL



Title: Re: Darker Side of HP Swap Gallery.
Post by: kahluakiggy on March 17, 2006 01:04:56 PM
I just got a message from her - she sent today!  Yay!  The PO person said it should be here Monday.

I'm especially happy with the quidditch turtle becase I saw something like this on another sway and wanted someone to make me one.  Thank you fairyprincessbeanie baby.

Sorry about wonky fic. My camera was acting weird.

i loved this swap! thanks so much for orginizing, Sad!

Ok, kahluakiggy, you have spoiled me beyond belief.   ;D

Behold fruits of the crafty goddess that is kahluakiggy:

1.  A velvet pouch, 10 marble magnets, 2 bookmarks, a keychain with a snake charm, a tiny Tom Riddle diary, and 4 patches.


2.  THREE, yes, THREE awesome shirts - Tom Riddle, Ron, and Voldy, all in a tin with gold stars on it.


AND

3.  A Bellatrix Black wood burned box with another velvet pouch of rune stones inside.  Also a packet on the history/how to use runestones.


Kahluakiggy, YOU ROCK!

Kahluakiggy - that stuff is amazing!!!  The shirts look great, what method did you use?  Just iron on?  My iron ons don't work so well.  The runestones are totally cool too!

I'm so jealous.

Post by: kahluakiggy on March 18, 2006 09:18:46 PM
Thanks!  *blush*

Yup, they're just iron-ons.  They're Burlington Printworks brand, easy beyond belief to work with, I totally love them.  I get them at AC Moore. 

The runes were the idea that I just had to do, which resulted in my sending late.  lol.

I like the idea of doing more themed HP swaps because the subject is so popular. We could have a Weasley family swap, a Marauder swap, a Hogwarts class swap, a favourite character swap, etc.
Just some ideas to make things a bit more interesting :D

Check this one out:
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=80508.0

It's the Harry Potter Round 5 Swap - the organiser wants to start signups in late March-early April.  So hopefully we can all get in on this one!  By then everyone should have their packages and feedback.

Yeah, I saw that there's another HP swap, but I still like the idea of delving further into a single theme within the HP realm. I'll definitely be checking out the HP 5 gallery, though ;).

Y'know I'll be up for a special HP swap again!  Actually, a Weasley swap or a fave character swap would be great!  I love the twins and Ron, but my fave is Snape!!

I would like to do a House swap.  Where you craft all for your partner's favorite house.


Title: Re: Darker Side of HP Swap Gallery.
Post by: SevsOnlyGirl on March 20, 2006 03:39:14 AM
I'd be happy to organise a specialty swap once my package is received and I get feedback, just let me know which one y'all want to do.  A House Swap would be nice.

Post by: kahluakiggy on March 20, 2006 07:30:35 AM
I got the package from redpopsicles today!!!  Check out the sweet stuff she sent me:


An awesome stencilled Tshirt that fits me perfectly (I'm wearing it now ;D ), 14 marble magnets, a knitted bookmark in Slytherin scarf style, and a Dark wizard address book!!!



And here's the back of the shirt!  The stencilling on this shirt looks amazing, I am so in love with it!! ;D  And the bookmark is already in a book!

I will post close-ups too, but my camera died as I was uploading the pics.  Those were the only ones I managed to get on my computer before the batteries went.  So, off to Wal-mart, and then, more pics!!!  Because you guys have got to see the inside of the address book - it's so cool, I never would have thought of it, but it's such a great idea!  *leaves you in suspense - mwah ha ha!*

Thank you so much, redpopsicles!  I love everything!  I can't wait to show my best friend, she'll be so jealous!

And Sad., thank you so much for organizing!  I'm so glad this was my first swap, it was a great experience!

(Sorry about excessive exclamation points, I'm a bit excited. ;D )


Title: Re: Darker Side of HP Swap Gallery.
Post by: SevsOnlyGirl on March 20, 2006 08:24:44 AM
Redpopsicles - that shirt is awesome!!  Did you make the back stencil yourself?  I've been looking for one and haven't found one.  Would you mind sharing?  If not, it's okay.

I can't wait to see the inside of the address book! 



Title: Re: Darker Side of HP Swap Gallery.
Post by: kahluakiggy on March 20, 2006 10:05:23 AM
Well, wait no more!  I braved hell itself (Walmart) with two small kids in tow so that I could finish uploading the pics.  And now, without further ado:


close-up of the marble magnets...notice there are several of Snape *heart flutters*  ;D


Scarf bookmark!


The super-cool Dark Wizard address book, complete with:


DARK WIZARD ADDRESSES!  How cool is that?  You just would not believe how impressed I was with that! ;D

You are now free to envy me.  Go ahead, you know you want to... lol

Alright, alright!  We're jealous, are you happy now?!LOL

That address book is awesome.  I want one for myself now!

Post by: GreenWhimsy on March 20, 2006 07:01:23 PM
Wow, wicked swap swag, kahluakiggy :o. I love that address book ;)

Y'know I'll be up for a special HP swap again!  Actually, a Weasley swap or a fave character swap would be great!  I love the twins and Ron, but my fave is Snape!!


The more I think about it, the more I like the idea of a favourite character swap. Maybe we could just start a "Special Themed Harry Potter Swap" and include a poll with the different theme ideas? I dunno, it could be fun :)


Title: Re: Darker Side of HP Swap Gallery.
Post by: SevsOnlyGirl on March 21, 2006 06:06:33 AM
Great idea, Green Whimsy!  A poll would be a fun idea.  How about when we all receive feedback for this swap, we can start an Swap Idea post and get people to vote?  Did anyone else want to organise?  If not, I'll do it, but if someone else wants to, that's perfectly good with me!LOL

I was going to organize a regular Harry Potter swap, but I could do a themed swap instead.  Perhaps we can somehow merge the swap idea threads into one thread, or I can at least direct the people interested in an HP swap to the poll and see what everyone wants. There is probably enough interest in this to have both an open HP swap and a themed swap, though.

maybe we should make it an ongoing swap and change the theme every month?

either way, i am SO in for anymore!

Hmm, that could be cool. We wouldn;t always have to participate, though, would we? Like if I were busy at school I could just pull out and come back for the next theme, right?

Has everyone recieved for this swap yet? Maybe we should put this discussion in a new thread....

can you post the link here if you open a new thread?
i was thinking that maybe we could make it a cross between a swap and a craftalong so that if one month there arent many able to participate we have a craftalong eg butterbeer recipies or the cute address book redpopsicle made (so ingenius!)

Wow, all these goodies are AMAZING! I almost signed up for this swap but had too much schoolwork responsibility. Sad I missed out on the GoF goodies! GREAT job, everyone, wow.

Excited for the new swap, too.

Nope, me and Sev'sonlygirl has yet to recieve each others packages but it's overseas so it's understandable.

Post by: SevsOnlyGirl on March 22, 2006 11:43:32 AM
The HP5 swap will be doing signups in late March/early April, so we should all be done by then.  I "spoke" with miss_katonic and we thought that she would start that one and then just before it's done, I'll start a poll to decide which specialty swap we want to do first.  We can do one after another, sure!  Nope, you wouldn't HAVE to be in all of them.  Keep an eye out for the HP5 swap to be starting signups - it's in New Swap Ideas right now.

I'm sad that Sad hasn't received yet.

Post by: SevsOnlyGirl on March 23, 2006 08:01:09 AM
Sad - I called USPS (postal service) and they told me that my package left the US on March 16th.  Normally it's 4-10 days after that to receive.  So you should get it at the beginning of the week hopefully.  I couldn't get this information online, I had to call their 1-800#.  They said that they did not show it as delivered yet, just in transit.  So if you don't receive next week, let me know and I'll call them back.  Apparently they are willing to track it manually if you're pleasant!!LOL

Sad - let me know as soon as you receive, otherwise I'll doublecheck with the USPS on Tuesday (my time).  They said unless there's a problem, it should be there by then.  Keeping my fingers crossed!

Post by: SevsOnlyGirl on April 15, 2006 05:17:20 AM
nope, no stuff yet and I haven't heard from Sad in awhile.  It has been 6 weeks since I sent out, so I called USPS and they put a trace on the package.  It will take awhile to hear, but they'll let me know when it was delivered.  Unfortunately, I didn't take pics before I sent it.  :(   Sad said that she mailed March 9th or 10th, she wasn't sure and couldn't find her receipt.  She was supposed to look for it and let me know, but I haven't heard from her lately.

Kahluakiggy - I am totally jealous that you got Jimmy Buffett tickets.  I love his music and his books!  Have you read any of the books?

Post by: kahluakiggy on April 15, 2006 09:38:42 AM
I've read A Pirate Looks at Fifty, but I couldn't really get into his fiction - I'm more of a fantasy type reader.  This will be my third Buffett concert, I went to two in 2000, one in Camden, NJ (I have family in Burlington, 20 minutes away) and one in Mansfield, MA, a mere three hours away instead of eight.  lol  We're going to Mansfield again this year, August tenth.  I can't wait!!  I have a few Carribean Soul shirts that I'm thinking about reconning for the concert, and I'm trying to convince my husband to let me dress up our minivan.  lol

Oh, I miss the Keys!!  My husband just passed his licensing test for pesticides and fertilizers (he's a superintendant at a golf course) so he's going to revamp the course he's working for now, and in about five years, he's hoping to get a job at the Key West Golf Club!!  Yay, move to Key West...where my goal is to take a bartending course and get a job at Margaritaville, because I know I like the music...lol

Funny side story, in 2000 we went down to Key West for the fourth of July.  And we were eating at Margaritaville before we went to the fireworks, and I was drinking what they called Calypso Coladas.  It was a pina colada with a kahlua floater - mmm, yummy.  And I was plowing through them pretty well, I had had like six of them (not very big cups, in my defense... ;D ), and the waitress asked if I wanted another.  I said "No, thanks, we're getting ready to go down to the beach for the fireworks," and she said, "Well, I can put it in a to go cup for you."  I swear my jaw hit the floor.  They don't do that in Maine!!!!  I was like, woohoo!   lol  So I got another and almost fell getting into the bike cab. ::)  What a lush.  (No, not really.  I hardly ever drink more than one drink, but I was 22 and still mourning my lack of college because I didn't get to have drinking binges. And my kids were with their dad, so...)

She got a good tip.  Heehee.
