and receivers!!!!!!!!!!!

I received from blupaisan today!  I am so freaking lucky it didn't get lost in the mail.  not the whole thing as in the card and the envelope, just the card.  one end of the envelope was open!!!  but it was in there, completely unharmed.  Grin

she decided to do a card based on the dog breed that I like that just happens to walk past her house everyday.  I couldn't believe it when I found out it was a little Pembroke Welsh Corgi!!!  yay!  Grin



isn't it cute?!  and blu, your printing is beautiful!  I'm so jealous!!!

THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!  MAJOR SWAP ANXIETY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I received from ohiodiygirl...at some point.  I don't honestly know when it came.

first, a little story.  my depression had me bedridden for most of the day (I have time to do my computer stuff and at least try to cut the rest of the fabric (NOT MY FINGERS!) for ohio's last project).  I didn't get out of bed until 12:30 only because I think I drank too much water before bed.  anyways, I went out to the kitchen to see what time it was, said "crap", turned around to go back to my room when a big blue box in the living room caught my attention.  I stood there looking at it for almost a minute thinking that maybe I was dreaming.  I walked up to it, and there was ohio's mailing address in one corner and mine in the middle.  then I panicked.  then I thought that maybe someone had come home while I was still sleeping and got the mail.  I went back to the kitchen, but there was no mail.  so I started panicking again wondering how the box got in the house.  the mailman was just by here about 20 minutes ago, so it didn't come today.  and I was home yesterday when he dropped off the mail.  so I don't know when it got delivered.  as soon as I started opening the box, my depression started to lift.  when I saw one item in particular, most of my depression melted away (you'll see why).  when I got to the bottom of the box, I was so happy I was crying and repeating "oh my god" over and over again (again, you'll see why).  on to the pictures of what made me so happy.

first we have a mask kit.  I love masks as it is, so to be able to make my own it a great idea.


here's what made most of my depression melt away.  ohio and I had decided to do a personal swap around December for ornaments, but the holidays and all got a little in the way, and we decided to wait and send our ornaments with the Labyrinth swap.  here's what she sent me:

Harry Potter and Daniel Radcliffe.  I think the one with just Daniel will be going above my bed.  Grin

this made my day too.  I love over the elbow arm warmers, and I do have a black pair and red& black pair that I bought at Hot Topic, but now I have a handmade pair of grey (that will go PERFECTLY with a knit hoodie vest I bought last year).  ignore the stupid pose of my thumb, all my chargers and glimpse of my video game collection.  Cheesy


this is amazing!  I love, love, love it!  ohio is awesome with screen printing (I know this from the craft group she had on myspace).  Wink


and lastly, my most favorite thing.  the thing that had me laughing and crying and saying "oh my god" and freaking out with swap anxiety.  all I saw at first was something red with feathers sticking out of a mass of tissue paper.  I moved all the tissue paper to find this:

can you believe it?!?!  he's freaking AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

thank you SO much ohiodiygirl.  you seriously rock!

I received from kartiana today!  yay!!!  be warned...picture heavy!!!

first we have my Bast/Ancient Egypt card and extras:

there was a little "story" along with this one.  it goes:

Turns out ATCs aren't a recent thing.  Archaeologists found this Egyptian artifact during a recent dig.  Since they understand that an ATC is to be given away and not sold, I was able to trade for it.  Pretty neat, huh?

how inventive!  she also sent these little extras inspired by papyrus/flower Ancient Egyptian art:


then came these 2.  2 of my favorite female super villains:
Poison Ivy


and my favorite of the 2, Harley Quinn (front):


back:


awesome right?  Grin

I love all of these cards, kartiana.  thank you SOOOOOOOO much!!!!!!!!!!

Linda P received her card, so I thought I'd post it.  Smiley

the theme I chose was Jeff Dunham.


I used the same suede paper I used for the Phoenix card to make curtains for this card.  now it looks like Jeff and Peanut are performing on stage!  Grin  well, they really are, but you know what I mean.  Wink

I received yesterday from kartiana.  I LOVE IT!!!!!

it's a combo of themes; we have red/black/silver, feathers, and one I never mentioned...Edgar Allan Poe!  and it's also based on my favorite Poe-m, "The Raven".  so there's another of my themes in there.  Grin



oh!  and another theme (duh me); glitter/sparkly/shiny.  I'm real quick today.  Roll Eyes

on a side note, did anyone hear about the mysterious Poe toaster not showing up this year?  that's the first time in 60 years!  and, how awesome is it that I received this ATC on Poe's birthday!

you rock kartiana!!!!!

270  Labyrinth needle book book in Completed Projects by Krafty_Karasu on: January 18, 2010 02:51:42 PM
yes, book is in the title twice again.  Smiley  but that's what it is.  it's a needle book made to look like the Labyrinth book Sarah has in the movie.  you may be familiar with the New Moon book I made similar to this.  it's in my signature if you'd like to see that too.

FRONT:


SPINE:


it's an oversized needle book.  it has pages to put sewing needles in as well as a strip of Aida cloth on the inside cover for cross stitch/embroidery needles.

I really wish I would have saved the pictures, but I went through the movie and took screen captures of times when Sarah was showing the cover of the labyrinth book used in the movie.  it doesn't have little people on the front, but I knew I just couldn't pass up the opportunity to use them.  I searched for hours for them, I wasn't about to let them go to waste.  Grin
