11  Re: Spring Cleaning Fill A Box Round 7 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by noxluff on: April 09, 2008 11:38:41 PM
I'm finally posting what I received from QuiltersBlock!  Welp, I got a little bit of everything! 

Picture of all the contents of the box.  Everything from knitting needles to buttons- and of course some fabric that I love!

Close up of the stuff that was in a ziplock bag.  Lots of goodies I can use!  I love love love those black and white buttons.  I will find a use for everything!  Cheesy

I am not quite sure what this is, but it has some interesting things on it.  Maybe QuiltersBlock can give me the details?  It has a lot of charms and things on it.  It's neat!

A cute pincushion!

A book on making cards, it has some really cute ideas I will use in the near future.   Grin

Thank you QuiltersBlock!!!

Okee doke, time for me to finally post!

I sent a Hello Kitty Mermaid to my swap partner, but she flaked on me.  It is made of very soft fleece!  Here is a picture of the stuffie I sent:

I know it's a bit plain, but it was only the second stuffie I've ever made!  Also, along with the stuffie I sent Valentine's candy and a felt broken heart pin, and it was sewn to look like the broken heart was stitched up.  I didn't take a picture of any of that because I thought she would once she got it, but that of course never happened.

Our lovely organizer, gammerus, was kind enough to angel for me!

The stuffie she sent me is the one on the left, with the awesome bow.  I absolutely ADORE this, it's got that creepy-cute quality that I love.  It's perfect for me!  Cheesy  It is standing beside the first stuffie I ever made, a sock bunny.

Close-up of the bow.

Thank you again, gammerus, for taking the time to make me something this rad.

I'm having trouble coming up with a good name that suits her, maybe because I'm working third shift tonight so I'm tired.  XD  Any ideas fellow craftsters?

I received from PatriaE a few days ago, but have been unable to post pictures because my father has been in the hospital.  He's doing much better, and since I have the time now I decided to go ahead and post what I got.

She sent me this lovely birthday card-

-and this awesome purple felt ipod cozy that I can wear around my neck!

Thank you, PatriaE!  I love it. :3

14  Cookie Tin Swap? in New Swap Theme Ideas by noxluff on: January 01, 2008 11:15:50 PM
You know those cookie tins that come out around Christmas time that has one packaged cookie in it?  I took a picture of mine:

You know what I am talking about now, right?  There are the Altoid tin swaps, so this one would be similar, but using the round cookie tins.  What do you think?  It could be fun!

Samsara received my package and told me I could go ahead and post pictures. Smiley

This was my first swap, so I was very excited!

Pictures of the birthday card I made for her:

Jewelry, all made from glass beads:

bracelet with leaf beads

I made this based on a necklace she had in her wists- http://beadwork.about.com/library/weekly/aa090899.htm
I used lavender colored beads for this.

A matching bracelet for the necklace.

I also sent her some mango-coconut incense!

I'm glad you liked everything Samsara, it was a lot of fun crafting for you!

16  Chocolate Pretzel Mugs! in Winter Holidays by noxluff on: December 21, 2007 04:54:35 AM
I work at the front desk of a hotel and I wanted to make something nice for our housekeepers this holiday season.  A while back I came across this- https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=140952.0- and I was inspired to make my own. 

Here is one of the finished mugs.
Each mug contained the following:
7 chocolate covered pretzel rods, some with white chocolate zig-zags, all with red, green, and white sprinkles!
1 cocoa cone (makes one cup of cocoa!)
2 candy canes

After putting the mugs together I wrapped them in clear wrapping paper you can get at Big Lots.  Works well!

They make lovely gifts, and the pretzels are easy to make!

I put the pretzels in these cute Christmas treat bags I got at JoAnn's for a dollar.

Here is a finished cocoa cone.  I made my own cone bags out of gallon sized freezer bags you can find at the Dollar Tree.

All the stuff I used!

You can see the whole table better here.

The pretzels!  ... plus mod podge and easy cheese.  I didn't put those on the pretzels, don't worry!   Tongue

Some of the finished pretzels.  Hob-nom-nom. 

Comments are greatly appreciated!

17  quick domo-kun finger puppet in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by noxluff on: December 21, 2007 02:56:41 AM
I was bored at work after finishing the stuff I needed to make for a swap I am angeling for.  I had scrap felt pieces, from doing Christmas things, and decided to make this!  Took only a few minutes, so it's not perfect, but still cute!  DOMO-KUN, with green eyes instead of black because I only had green and red beads around.  Comments are greatly appreciated!  I might make a serious attempt at another later on. :3

The last one is a bit blurry but I think it's cute.  He's trying to eat a gingerbread cookie, and I just love the way the picture looks. Cheesy

18  Need ideas for flapper girl buttons in Discussion and Questions by noxluff on: December 06, 2007 12:19:18 AM

I just bought these buttons, thinking I could make something cute with them.  I'm open to any ideas other than clothing.  They're supposed to be flapper girls!  I WAS thinking of doing an updated vintage style purse, but I'm not sure what to go with. 

Suggest away!  Post pictures and links if you have them.  Cheesy

19  Black Beaded Heart Necklace in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by noxluff on: November 16, 2007 02:55:39 AM
I just finished putting together this necklace, and it will be one of my friend's Christmas gifts.  It's made of seed beads, beads off of another necklace, a heart earring, and the clasp from yet another necklace.  The pictures aren't the best quality since they are from a web cam!

First post from me that actually shows some of my work!  Cheesy

Picture of it on my desk at work.

A closer look at the heart!

I tried to hold it up against a sheet of paper so it could be seen easier.

Comments are greatly appreciated!
