21  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Biology Nerd Swap on: August 10, 2005 09:29:11 PM
I received my swap package from needlesandpins today and oh my, it's glorious!

Mitosis tote bag

Inside pocket ("science is crazy cool")

Nitrogenous base (one pyrimidine, one purine) glass marble hair clips

DNA & phosphate glass marble earrings (I can also use 'em as pins on the mitosis tote when I'm not wearing them as earrings)

DNA handmade/handbound planner book

Spine of book (amino acids! woo-hoo!)

Lovely poem titled "The Family is All There Is" on the inside front cover (even more interesting because needlesandpins' handwriting looks very similar to that of one of my best friend's handwriting)

First tab of planner - "Calendar"
(4 tabs total which correspond to the 4 nitrogenous bases - cytosine, thymine, guanine & adenosine, Calendar, To Do Lists, Going To Do Someday, & Assignments + Notes

I absolutely love everything! I've been happily using my mitosis tote bag and taking it everywhere and showing it off to my friends.

Thank you so much needlesandpins! It looks like a ton of time & effort went into making everything (like each date on the calendar pages of the planner was hand-numbered) and I appreciate it so much.

I need to try this. Ooo, I'm getting happy just thinking about the possibilities.

I'm thinking of some lovely house/room decor.

Even better, the possibilities are great for publicity for the student organizations that I'm involved in at college. There's always a ton of events at the beginning of the school to get freshman involved on campus and there's usually flyers/flycards/banners/signs all over to advertise for all of the events. There's even a massive glass wall in our main computer lab building that's used exculsively for posting flyers. And, as an engineer, I get free unlimited black and white printing in specific computer labs. Put that all together....and I can picture a massive 6ft tall poster/flyer....oy.

And you all need to go check out this related blog. I just discovered it last night, and wasn't sure whether to laugh or cry. http://youknitwhat.blogspot.com/

I swear, I think that might be my new favorite website!

That site is great. And novelty yarns are not.

I think people should only be allowed to buy fun fur if they show proof that the intended wearer/user of the item to be knit with it is under the age of 13.

Thanks for the tutorial! The earrings you made look amazing.

just to add a photo since this page is photo-less thus far....

Here's the earrings I made for Hanau which she received a couple of weeks ago; they're like the DNA earrings I made earlier ( https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=41719.0 ) just with different colors

I'm hoping that the pair she sent me will get here tomorrow (else, I'll start worrrying that something happened in transit....since she said she was sending them out last Saturday).

I don't remember the exact street, I think its on East Liberty there's a store called Wizzywig collectibles, and down the street from it ( to the left if you're facing wizzywig ) theres a mens clothing store, i think next to a bank and theres stairs outside that go to a little beading store below it and its an amazing store!

i love that bead store!!!

Oh my. I went to the Bead Gallery on East Liberty St. for the first time yesterday and I fell in love with it. There are soooooo many beads there (including handmade glass ones and genuine gemstones) and it's so awesome, especially for making earrings, since you only need to buy the ones you're going to use (as opposed to having to buy a whole bag of them like with most craft stores). I loooooove it. I went back today and bought more beads!

the timing of the previous posts is so interesting. I was going to post about the Bead Gallery yesterday but went to bed early so I could get up for work. And tonight, I look and this thread was revived from its hibernation with the Bead Gallery as the reviving post's subject!

hi!  the pulleys are sterling silver beads that i found.  these particular earrings have the chain pushed into the "groove," so the chain is fixed.  i could have made them moveable but that may be annoying when they are actually worn as they may slip too much.  which would you prefer?

They're cute either way, but I love playing with my earrings when I'm  bored or reading or the like, and it would be awesome if the chains were moveable when pulled on, but not otherwise. Like, they wouldn't slide or move on their own if I was just walking or shaking my head slightly, but could move if I was playing with them.

oh my. Your work is fantastic! The pulley earrings and mass on a spring earrings made my heart go ka-thump!

What did you use to make the pulley of the pulley earrings? And, do the chains actually move or are the fixed to the top of the pulley?

Very cool...I love marble magnets.

Weird question though...as far as I can tell from your avatar, you look like someone who's a friend of a friend of mine. Where are you from?

I'm from the Cleveland area of Ohio....but I've been told that I look like other people. One time, my brother swore that he saw me at the mall when I hadn't been there and another time, a classmate in a math course kept thinking that I lived in the same dorm as him when I didn't. Hah.  Smiley
