Yea!! I am so glad that you like everything hngoodlett!! It was so much fun crafting for you, and your tastes in books were so similar to mine that it was easy to find books for you. Now, narrowing it down to the ones I sent... that's another story.  Grin

I received my package from hngoodlett this week too!! I love everything so much!!

First we have the coolest book plates in the world!! Who doesn't love rabid gnomes?? Mmmm bloody....

Next is an awesome embroidered tote bag and an art piece made of recycled magazines. I love the seven tentacled octopus- he is so cute  Cheesy

Finally, we have the books:
The world according to Garp by John Irving
Mother Night by Kurt Vonnegut
The Color of Magic by Terry Pratchett
The Light Fantastic by Terry Pratchett

And the book that made me do a happy dance around my house, I have been meaning to buy this book for a while, and now I am happy that I didn't. I am a This American Life junkie, and David Sedaris is one of my favorites!!!!

When you are engulfed in Flames by David Sedaris.

Thank you hngoodlett!!!! I can't wait to read all of my new books!!

I received two wonderful swap packages from phoenixfiredesigns and ThreadOrYarn this week!

Phoenixfiredesigns made me one of her beautiful tree of life pendants. I love the garnet gemstones! I wore this to work on Monday and I got lots of compliments

And ThreadOrYarn sent me some awesome hand spun yarn. I don't have her letter in front of me, so I am not exactly sure what it is made of, but I love the colors and the cool bows incorporated in the balled yarn.

And as an extra bonus ThreadOrYarn included an awesome hat that is similar to one on my wist and a headband. I love the dark green color of the hat. It should keep me nice and warm this winter!!

Thank you so much!!!

P.S. I seem to have lost my photo taking mojo today, so if either of you have better pictures, please feel free to post them!!

I recieved my last two stamps yesterday. I am kind of sad that I won't be getting anymore wonderful stamps in the mail  Cry. But these last two are just as awesome as my first two.

Sweetiepickles sent me this wonderful robot stamp!! Hooray for more robot-y goodness!!

And darkladymajesta sent me this wonderful customizable gnome stamp. When I first opened it- I was so confused, I couldn't understand what this was, but luckily she sent a card that helped explain it  Grin  Now I can't wait to draw all sorts of wonderful gnome faces!

Thank you ladies!! And thank you Penlowe for organizing such a wonderful swap!!

I received two wonderful packages yesterday!!!

From quilted I received a wonderful crochet swiffer cover, embroidery artwork and beautiful fabrics to use for my embroidery hoop artwork.

The awesome embroidery artwork- I love how it looks like a topo map. I love topo maps and maps in general!

A close up of the beautiful stitches

A very nice swiffer cover- I can't wait to use this!

And the gorgeous fabrics- I think the brown fabric is my favorite, but they are all wonderful.

And from girlosun_9 I received a crochet hook holder. I have been needing one of these for a long time!!

Here is an action shot with a bunch of my hooks! I love the brown and blue fabric.

And here it is all rolled up! The button closure is awesome!

Thank you so much girlosun_9 and quilted! Everything is so beautiful and well made!!

266  Re: Favorite Movie Swap Gallery in The Swap Gallery by LeapFeetFirst on: July 15, 2008 08:29:11 AM
Since I know that yoyowa is anxious for me to post pictures of the wonderful package she sent, I will post them now.  Grin

I couldn't believe how many wonderful things there were in this swap package. I kept pulling more and more crafted goodness out of the bottomless box.

My four favorite movies were Rocky Horror Picture Show, Cannibal the Musical, Dogma, and This is Spinal Tap.

On to the picture overload!!!

One of my favorite items- a handmade Brad doll with two outfits!! I love this because when I was in high school, my friends and I would watch RHPS show all the time and we each had a "part" I was Brad, and I had all of my lines memorized Tongue Yeah, I am a dork. But this doll is soo cool.
Boring everyday Brad, in boxer shorts and a white tank top

Fun, sexy Brad in fishnets, and a corset. This picture doesn't show the detail very well, but the corset is very well made and matches the bag and eye mask below!

A survival kit for a midnight showing of RHPS. Inside is a bunch of stuff to use during the movie, and directions on how to use it. Since, they don't have these showings here, I may have to recreate it on my own.

A wonderful stenciled t-shirt with Dr. Frankenfurter. I love this shirt, and I can't wait to wear it!

Next is a handpainted picture frame and some candy lipstick

A decoupaged plate and mini lunch box

Some polymer clay pendants inspired by RHPS.

RHPS inspired zippered tote and eye mask.

Handmade journals. The Cannibal the Musical one (Large dark brown one) and the Dogma (small, light brown one) are both hand bound. I love them both!
My favorite is the Dogma one, it has the "carpenter and the walrus" speech that Loki gives in the airport!!

Since, I am from Wisconsin, I found it hilarious that Bartelby and Loki were banished to Wisconsin. Yoyowa made me a stenciled t-shirt to show off that home state pride :-)

And last, but not least, is a decorated Spinal Tap box with my favorite quote from the movie on the inside!

Whew, I think that is everything. Thank you so much yoyowa!! I love it all!!!! and if you have any better detail shots, please post them!

Now that I got my camera working and a sunny day to take pictures, I can finally post pictures of the wonderful swap packages I've received.

From animegirlie I received three boxes. The first had wonderful fabric covered bobby pins

The second had button magnets that were slightly damaged in shipping. I still need to glue them back together, but they will go wonderfully with the other magnets I received in the button swap!! Oh, and there was also a crocheted flower in this box

The last package contained wonderful homemade pendants. The one on the right is made from a button and the one on the left is made from some soft foamy golden material. I can't really tell what it is, but I love it!!

From catpants I received a wonderful knitted grocery tote. I love the colors and how stretchy it is. The second picture shows the bag with a container of juice in it. I also love that it has a draw string type thing.

And finally from pinupmommy I received a plethora of homemade bags.

I loved the strawberry fabric, so here is a close up( it is more yellow looking in real life)

Pinupmommy also included a wallet. I love the different stitches.

Thank you so much ladies!

Now that I finally have my camera back, I can post pictures of the awesome package that SunflowerSmiles sent me. I apologize in advance for the dark pictures, I tried to take them in natural light- but I think I waited until too late in the day. SunflowerSmiles if you have better pictures, please feel free to post them! Anyway... on to the picture show!!!

SunflowerSmiles and I agreed to make some homemade buttons to send to eachother. Here are the ones she made for me. Most are made from polymer clay. The three in the upper left side are shrinky dinks and there is a fabric covered button as well. I love the leaf impressions and the swirly tree designs.

An eye pincushion that is based off of one on my wist. I love SunflowerSmile's interpretation. The iris and the pupil are buttons!!!

Button magnets and button rings!! My favorite magnet is the one in the upper right. It looks like a colorful bowl of fruit loops!!

Not one, but TWO button necklaces. One has a tiny vial filled with tiny buttons and the other has a yarn/thread cutter on the end. How awesome are these??

Button ornaments. I believe that these are based on some that are on my wist. I think the green one is my favorite. I almost made some of these for SunflowerSmiles- but I decided to make some thing similar but completely different (Oh I hope she gets her package today!!!!!)

Button hair thingys! These are perfect, I love the colors and the patterns. I am wearing some now!! (Grrr stupid dark pictures, the one on the bottom is brown with a floral motif.)

And finally, the rest of the buttony goodness. Most came in these two wonderfully decorated glass bottles. My favorite button is the red twisty one in the front.

Whew, I think that is everything. Thank you SunflowerSmiles for being such a wonderful swap partner and for making me such a beautiful, button filled swap package!!!!!

269  Crazy Quilt Book Cover in Quilting: Completed Projects by LeapFeetFirst on: June 17, 2008 12:32:39 PM
I wanted to share a crazy quilt patchwork book cover that I made for my partner in the Giant Multi-Theme Swap. The book cover is adjustable and has a dark brown corduroy backing. This was my first time trying to make any type of quilt. It was also my first time embroidering- lots of firsts!!!

Anywho... on to the photographic evidence:

Over all shot of the whole book cover

Some detail shots:

So how did I do for my first time? I didn't really know what I was doing, and I did leave some "loose" edges that I had to secure down with embroidery.Any advice you guys could give me on how to avoid that in the future would be greatly appreciated.
