21  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Newbie Swap Round 13 Gallery! on: July 22, 2010 08:22:13 PM
 got my package from jessiesmudge today--yipee!

there was some drama starting out when the post office LOST THE PACKAGE--aarrrgh!  i had to keep calling them about it, and i think we can all close our eyes and imagine this kind of interaction. it was painful. "well ma'am, according to the tracking number, the package is here.  so come pick it up." "yes, that is the problem. it's NOT here or at your office." "well, that sounds like it is the sender's problem.  they will have to deal with it." "no, they got the DC so that this wouldn't happen." "oh, there is a DC number?" "yes, you just used it to look up my package." "oh yes.  well it says here it is in the office for pick up, so just come by." "i WAS just at your office and it WASN'T there..."  and so on.  but finally my package and i were united and these were the things inside:

well, well, well...what have we here?

let's take a closer look:

it looks like coasters!  jessie sews like a professional--look at these!  they came bundled up in a little green ribbon.  once they were set free into the wild this is what i found:

beautiful bright colors that popped against the grey background!  jessie knew my favorite color was grey, so they are PERFECT.  i adore these two patterns together.  these coasters were a great idea and am using one RIGHTNOW.ASITYPE. 

next up for presentation is this amazing bag she sewed:

i brought it to work to show my friend and she exclaimed "is that a new vera bradley?"  she is a HUGE vera fan (she had two such bags with her), so she was shocked when i told her my friend in oregon made it for me.  jessie is a true craftswoman. really high quality bag. check out the details inside:

this is perfect for me because i love little bags.  i really do.  it feeds my need to micro-organize. so i have great plans for this little bag already!

so you're probably jealous by now. i don't blame you. i would be, too.  but wait, the last, medium item...which seriously, with all of the work that must have gone into this must make it a large item...a superawesomefantastic quilted puppy blanket!:

look at this!!!  look!  it's amazing.

jessie used the most beautiful stitches.  swirls on the borders and what she called 'stomaching' on the center piece.  it's insane.  and look at the adorable fabric.  it has happy puppies and kitties with hearts, LOVE IT!:


and it came with a puppy:

ok, not really.  but this blanket came just in time.  we just got our new pug puppy, so i had to take a picture of him wrapped in it.  this blanket will be perfect in his little den so that it is warm and soft and snuggy.

i just want to thank jessie for everything--she is an amazing craftster and i am really lucky to have been paired up with her.  i am thankful for all of the things she sent me Smiley  i loved it all, thanks jessie!

(p.s. now i'm REALLY worried that my end sucks...eeek!)

i'm so excited to start crafting...my partner replied to me with some more defined input about what kind of jewelry she likes and it ended up being immensely helpful. one of the items i was considering is a bit loud, and i realized that this would probably not be a good fit for her style.  so, it's been really great so far!  now i know what i'm making and will start tomorrow, yay!

hi everyone!
i'm 26, married (no kids, none planned) and live in wilmington, delaware, but Im originally from maine.  I am working on my PhD in microbiology and immunology in philadelphia developing small molecule inhibitors of HIV transmission (snore). here are some factoids about me:
--i love animals.  i don't have any pets right now, but i will be getting a little pug in the near future--yay!!!
--i like british tv, obnoxious shows (family guy, it's always sunny in philadelphia, flight of the conchords, etc), golden girls, and big bang theory. 
--i like fashion: ruffles, lace, sequins, fussy things, accessories (earrings!), the color grey, shopping at thift stores.
--i like to buy make-up but dont wear any.
--i'm tall.
--i cant cook or garden. Sad
--i love squirrels.
--i am an only child.does not share well with othersha!
--im very laid back, i dont get upset or offended easily.
--i hate motivational posters and calenders with kittens or babies dressed up in silly things.
--i am easy to please.
my main crafting hobby is beaded jewelry, like bead stringing and bead weaving.  i like to sew, but thus far have not made anything presentable, so hopefully ill get better at it!  other than that i make accessories, like headbands, feather hair clips, etc.

i'm excited to get a partner and start crafting for them!! Smiley

29  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / navy blue spirals necklace on: December 24, 2009 09:00:38 PM
i got this pattern from sandra d. halpenny (check out her site, it's nice).  it's a series of spiny little loops that use a ton of thread.  i think they look like little galaxies or sonic the hedgehog.

the colors didn't photograph well, but it is navy blue, matte silver, and shiny swarovski's. my color scheme was 'starry night' inspired:


 
and one more shot for the road:


thanks for looking!
30  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / snowflakes, elephants, and blue rain drops = 3 necklaces on: December 24, 2009 08:51:36 PM
here are a couple of christmas gifts that i made this year:

a pretty red, white & shiny wire necklace.  i love making these because they are quick & easy, and come out so beautiful:

this necklace is very sparkly with the swarovski beads, but i couldn't seem to capture it in my photos.  Sad


a simple, delicate necklace with a cute little carved elephant:



blue aurora finish drops simply strung together with blue matte finished seed beads:



hope you enjoy these little trinkets...
