1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Once You Pop Swap 2010-Sprintime Gallery!! on: April 27, 2010 03:02:05 PM
Ok, all being well I should have photos here of the stuff I sent to samigurumi. I had some issues getting them to resize and get them onto craftster, so I've uploaded them to my flickr as well, so I hope it works.. *crosses everything*

1. The can:

2.  A spring inspired charm bracelet

3. A butterfly stuffie. I meant to say in my note to sammie that it was an experiment. I think it went ok

4. A painted shopping bag.
I have to admit, this was my favourite of the things I sent. It was my first attempt at fabric painting and apart from one little blob, it went pretty well

5. Flower hairclip/brooch

6. Crochet hook roll.
I hate that you can see my v.wonky stitching, but since this is the first one I've ever made specifically for crochet hooks, it took a while to get the measurements right. The flowery material came from a charity shop skirt.

7.more little hairclips

I also sent some lindor chocolate mini eggs, and also ate quite a lot of them while I was packing the can!!!

Thank you so much sammie for such a fab swap. Your chick can is the best I've ever seen and I'm v. proud of it. Also, I did wonder how you managed to get the head to stay attached..

wow these packages are really awesome. I love the "craft fund" tin idea Smiley

I'm still battling with my pics. Don't have time to sort it out atm so I've asked my partner if she has any, if not I'll post them at the weekend...

Just wantd to say everyone's packages so far are awesome, and I'm kind of glad I posted mine before looking at these because I can't add anything else....

Man I've had problems with my internet - have nly been able to get online on my phone, and it won't let me access Craftster Sad I'm almost done, but thinking I could probably do 1 or 2 more little things. It's been fun though  even if I've been unable to check in for the best part of 2 weeks. Gonna go check the gallery now!!

Should be sending Weds/ Thurs. Like to give myself the most time possible!!

Ooh I've got a couple of things done (may have said that already) and hit a bit of a wall. Which I think I've now slid down, so all is good Smiley

I cannot believe I only just noticed this swap. Grr. Next one, I'm so in

(although only just started playing WOW, so half of  what you guys said made no sense to me...)


I'll be watching this closely though

I'm running a bit behind. I feel really bad. Got stuck in the house and unable to get to the craft store in the snow, and am now showing various people around my house trying to find new housemates. So my sewing machine hasn't made it out of hibernation because of the amount of mess I make with it (also, don't want to scare potential roomies off...)

I got my package from feline2001 yesterday, yay!
Here it is, and I'm amazed at some of the similarities

Package One

Favourite animal: gorgeous rat plushie

Something edible/ drinkable
I put these together just because of the way I photographed them. Edible was the Matchmakers (YUM!) and dib dabs, and the drinkable is the awesome french vanilla and double chocolate coffees. One of my housemates keeps trying to steal the vanilla, which is absolutely yum. I've not tried the chocolate one yet

Something that smells nice: oil diffuser. Has come in useful for covering the smell of coffee in my room Smiley

Something related to yarn: fluffy scarf- omg this is the softest thing EVER!! I love it.

Something related to favourite flower: Lavendar soap and lavendar candles- I had to laugh when I saw the soap- who'dve thought it!! It smells divine as well

Favourite character: tigger cross stitch. LOVE this. He's on my bedside cabinet at the moment
Related to reading: very hungry caterpillar fabric - totally my favourite book as a child too- in fact, one of my friends bought me a copy of hte book for my 30th birthday, and a mug for my 31st!

Favourite craft supply: super snugglicious yarn!! You have to touch it to understand...

Something related to favourite holiday: Christmas stamps/ ink pads.
Not very easy to see (crap photos, sorry) - but the stamps are a bauble, snowflakes and present

Thank you SO much for this package Sarah, it's amazing how much we have in common. I should say there were also some photos of her life, ratties etc but I didn't want to post them if thats ok? I can't wait til package 2!!

oh, and apologies for the rubbish photos/backdrop. The light is weird in my room, and the only surface I have is my bed...
