I will have to see if I have any photos of the coasters close up, I took them with my roommate's phone, I still can't find the cord to my actual camera *ggggrrrrr damn pixies*  I'm not sure if they are still on her phone, but if they are, I'll edit this and get them up so you can see them!
I'm totally glad you like you purse, there were a few times with it when I was swearing in my made up language, LOL!  There's no real name for them that I'm aware of, just 'purse frames'.  And as for the fabric, I got it from reprodepot.com.

So, I got mine today as well, and I totally needed it, rough day with my kids.  So, on to my photos!!

First off, here is the photo of everything together.  I'm totally stoaked, it made my day!

Next, we've got the individual shots, first of a fridge magnet and clothing for it!

Next is a book of paperdolls, totally awesome by the way

Third is a wallet made with the cutest fabric, totally what I've been wanting!

And finally, a completely adorable pearl choker that I'll wear when I wear my pretty vintage dresses!

Edit: I found two closeup photos of the coasters, here they are!  I made them with poured resin by the way, poured in plastic containers, much like rubbermaid containers, only cheaper so I don't feel guilty "ruining" them with resin. Cheesy

Ok, I got my package on Friday and haven't had time to post until just now.  I swear, life is just one thing after another these days!  At the end of my post, you'll get to see one of the reasons that I've just not had any time for the computer this weekend.  Wink

First off, I scared the postman when he came with my package, I was pouring resin at the time and pounced on him when he arrived.  Poor thing!  Anyway, I LOVE everything in it and I've received nothing but compliments on the bag.  Most people can't believe that I "know" someone who crafted it!  I have a feeling these pics are blurry, had to use the roommates cell since the cord for my camera has been swiped by pixies.  Sad

First, everything together.  You can't hardly tell, but there was bag of the BEST chocolate covered espresso beans I've had the pleasure of putting in my mouth EVER.  And they're totally almost gone!

A (not too blurry) close up of the bag.  I love it, brown with leopard, fantastic!  I carried to a fancy work dinner Friday night and my boss LOVED it.  She said she wanted to steal it and I told her she didn't pay me enough to replace it, which made her laugh...a LOT.

I LOVE a big wallet, and I'm afraid that this picture doesn't do it justice.  It's the perfect size and has an embossed feel to the fabric.  I really do love it!

And finally, the goodies.  My FAVORITE flavor of Tic Tacs (yay Ly!) really awesome mints, lotion, hairspray, the aforementioned snacks...I'm happy!  Oh!  I almost forgot the tissue cover!  Totally ingenious and bright red, which is ALWAYS a good thing!

And, as I mentioned before:

^THAT is why I've had no time^
That would be 7 collie puppies, born over the weekend that live in my room.  I'm still adjusting to NOT jumping up to tend to a baby when it makes THOSE noises, and even though they're fur covered, I still know they're babies.  Anyway, 4 girls, 3 boys and I'm really excited, though sleepy!
I'm glad that you enjoyed your package, and I'm REALLY glad that the big bag is indeed big enough, I measured on some of my old textbooks.  Cheesy  Great crafting everyone, really beautiful stuff!

^ LOL!  I completely get that, why do you think it took me so many hours to figure it out!  It is an elaborate hairstyle, but I feel pretty confident it can be done.  I can't get a roll on the side or top of my head to stay/look right for MY LIFE and it drives me crazy!  So I crochet snoods and just try, try again until I'm so mad that I just shove it under a snood and roll the front!

Side note from your hair vegebrarian Wink  I managed to get one photo of me taken that seems to be decent.  This first one is what happens to my hair when I leave it in jerry-rigged pin curls for 17 hours.  I say jerry-rigged because all I own are bobby pins, I have no setting lotion and my sections were WAY larger than reccomended.  And to explain the look on my face, my roommate was harassing me about getting up and I was trying to tell her that I was in the middle of cutting a vintage pattern out and couldn't very well stop.

Horrifying, that's why it's a thumbnail.  LOL!  I'm using this as proof that even hard to curl hair, like mine, will curl if left in pin curls over night.  Oh, and they stay pretty dang well for about 5-7 days, depending on the humidity.  And that's without setting them with anything at all.

This one is what happened after, I could have sworn that I did a roll in front, but it got chopped off by the camera.  What I did do, however, was some form of roll on the side, to get the bits out of my face and give it volume.  This photo was taken the day after the first one, and to sleep, I put a snood on like a full hairnet.  LOL!  Makeup-wise, a little cheek glow stuff, my latest love, two layers of eyeliner (one in a color, in this case, turquoise, and the upper one in black) and my other new fav, Coty Airspun translucent powder.  Cheesy  Once i find the cord I need to get pics off my actual camera, I'll see if I have any better ones, maybe of the snood or something obviously more vintage.

14  Re: Hooray for Craftster-wood: The Old Movies Swap Gallery! in The Swap Gallery by HandsyMalone on: March 07, 2009 12:47:12 PM
I got my package the day before yesterday, but I wasn't able to get photos until today.  One of the 'patients' had suffered an unfortunate accident while in transit and the 'doctor' had to patch her up.  Wink  Now that everything is dry, I took photos outside and am now going to show them off.  I was REALLY excited to get my package and called my roommate at work to tell her about it.  LOL!!  Anyway, off to the races as it were:

First off the tray/patient

I really like this, and told my daughter and roommate about all the movies the pictures are from Cheesy  And for the record, the 'injury' wasn't HER fault, I think they were rough with it in shipping.  Or my wierd postman dropped it Cheesy

Next, my other favorite item, the coasters.  I don't use coasters, but I just might now!  I apologize for the fact that one of the photos is off, I'm still getting used to my camera and how the display/eye hole line up.  There's a Cary, which makes me giggle to put my glass on his face.

And a close up Cheesy

The popcorn bowl follows, oddly enough, the glitter shows up.  It says "There's no place like home" 

And popcorn to fill it up!

And finally, the tote, which I didn't realize until today is double sided!  Yay for Audrey Hepburn!

15  4 hats, a hook cozy and some slippers... ((IMG heavy)) in Crochet: Completed Projects by HandsyMalone on: January 21, 2009 10:18:05 AM
*hears crickets*
Yeah, this is my first project post here, despite having been busily working away on my crafts for quite some time.  *sigh* 
I've been making hats lately, and sold 2 just before the holidays.  Here are 4 of them:

This is my own pattern, and the band in interchangeable.  Cheesy

This is actually the same pattern with a smaller hook and no brim.  This was made almost exclusively in the ER while waiting for my roommate to be checked out and discharged.

[imghttp://paradoxpark.com/images/crafts/hat3-2.jpg[/img]http://This is from a vintage pattern I found on the 'net somewhere.  I should be able to dredge it up if someone wants/needs it.  The flower on here was an orchid pattern also from the internet, and also easily located in my links if anyone wants/needs it.

This is an edit of a yarncat pattern, with a passion flower pattern from online.  As with the last pattern, I am willing to figure out the links if needed/wanted.

This is a ravelry pattern http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/crochet-hook-caddy.  I joined a make from your queue group and am having a great time!

These are also a ravelry pattern http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/hexagon-boot-slippers.  I made these, also from my queue.  I like how they turned out, except for the oddness of the sole.  Has anyone else made these, I'd love some advice about getting the sole to fit right.  My over-foot part was not as long as the sole, when made completely according to the pattern.  Is it maybe my guage/tension?

Anyway, thoughts, C/C and all that are more than welcome!!  Oh, and my lovely 'model' is Joeliene, aka "The Head of Doom" LOL!!
