7781  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Science IS Art Swap! (SIGNUPS CLOSED! Sendouts by 5/7) on: May 04, 2008 04:04:46 PM
I am officially finished! Yay! But, now, because I have a meeting after school and then I have to tutor, I don't think I'll make the PO. And, because I have 2 hours of tutoring on Tuesday, I won't make it then either. And, I don't know when I can go on Wednesday, either. Yikes! I think I'll have to try to go before my meeting...and be a few minutes late...hmmmm....

But, I love what I made! And, I hope my partner does too!

Wow! That must be a big jar! I don't think even the computer keys would have all fit into my jar Smiley

I made an almost fatal error today in my item- I was cutting something and accidently cut a part of my project! And then, because I was so upset, I cut what was left of it too small! After a trip to the store to see if I could replace that part, and finding that I couldn't, I figured out a way to substitute something else to extend the size a bit.

Haste makes waste...grrr...

the_trademarks- Such neat little things! And, is that a tiny barrel of monkeys? Or just a green barrel? And, the mini jar of whimsies is so cute!

I'm glad you guys made squares in one color, too! I was hoping to avoid the weaving-in-the-ends syndrome that hit me last month. Plus, I thought I needed to make a solid pink square. I wasn't sure how one color would look, but now that you've done them, I can see that it looks just fine!!

Yay! Thanks jennbrad and Sorcha!

Very nice looking squares, Horse Power! I really like your color choices!

those are beautiful, would love to see them a bit closer up, but i completely understand camera problems!

Well, I can post the pics I have, but bear in mind that any flaws in the images are the fault of the photographer, not my awesome partner!

Your tutorial was just the ticket for a project that I am working on. It was all squares and straight stitches, but some of the pieces were too tiny to work with. This made it so much easier!

Thanks again for such a great tutorial!

Oooooh! Pretty!

It's so cool that you got to put one of your whimsies to use in such a lovely way!

AlternaWidget- You put together a beautiful package! It's such a bummer that parts of it were confiscated (I can understand their concerns in terms of invasives species, however- some plants can regenerate from fragments of the plant, so unless the bird's nest was plastic, it would be unknown plant matter...which totally, totally sucks!), but hopefully the awesome dodecahedron can be reclaimed!!

I received my package from the_trademarks today, and I am totally bummed that I couldn't have sent her package out at the same time. I am going to be waiting on the doorstep of the sewing machine repair shop first thing tomorrow...because if he can fix it quickly, I could actually make the PO by tomorrow afternoon...I am that close to finishing!!

So, let me just say, whoever said that nice things come in small packages wasn't entirely accurate...FANTASTIC things come in small packages!

I am totally into geeky science jewlery, and my partner came through big time!

I don't have any good close-ups...I can try later if anyone wants, but they came out all blurry, even with the macro setting (where is that darn camera instruction manual??). So, a group shot will have to do, unfortunately!



The green earrings are made with triangular and hexagonal tree agate, with round lodolite beads. The other pair is made with rose quartz and bleached mother of pearl. Just beautiful!!

In the middle are two resin on wood pendants- a brain and a cool image that is actually a picture of coagulation. I just love the subtle geekiness of it!

Above that is a cartoon from a 1972 issue of Science World magazine Wink

And finally, two fused glass pieces with dichroic glass in them. One of them even has a small painted glass flask in it!

She included a letter typed on an actual typewriter to explain what everything is. I love it all!!!

Thanks so much, Jasmine!
