3451  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Bead Soup Swap: Round 7 on: January 22, 2014 02:24:16 PM
And now the package from Anna!


Lots of glass in the colors I use most often, black, blue and purple!  As well as some beautiful freshwater pearls. The paper on the side is a sewing pattern, showing how to make some fancy stitches.  It's dated from 1904!


Some lovely silver focal beads...


Cute little nesting doll beads!


Some beautiful Swarovski crystal, stone, glass, and some amazing giant bead caps.  I think I already have a plan for these guys!


And finally, a lovely wrap bracelet.  Ratfinkz and Anna must have been on the same page, because the beads are amethyst, so their crafted items actually match one another!  The bracelet fits perfectly, and will get lots of use.  (While I make charm bracelets for everyone else, I can't really wear them because they get in the way at work, and often snag the fabrics I'm working with.  This is the perfect solution. Smiley)




Thank you Anna!  It will all be put to good use quite soon.   Kiss

I received two very lovely packages yesterday!  Let's take a look at all the soupy goodness...

First is the package I received from Ratfinkz.


Blue, Red and Purple Lampwork


A few mixes, including stone, smaller beads and hearts!


Some giant shell pieces


And some lovely charms that I'm sure will find their way into some charm bracelets. Cheesy


She also sent a lovely necklace of amethyst chips and silver spacers.  You can see it in the top photo, laying across the back.  The picture I took ended up being very fuzzy. Sad  I'll see if I can get another picture soon.  Smiley

Thank you so much Ratfinkz!!!   Kiss

EDIT:  Here's a better picture of the necklace.

I've bought and tried so many kinds of glue, and I do in fact swear by E6000.  The stuff is fantastic.  I do however, dislike the giant tube it comes in.  Sometimes I buy the smaller "trial size" tubes, which cost a lot more, just so I can use them before it dries up/the cap gets glued on, etc.

In more ATB news, I was having trouble getting a component to attach to the top of my ATB, because it has a rounded bottom.  I tried playing with some of the tools I have at home, but we're in the process of packing to move, so stuff is kinda hard to find.  In the end, I took my project to the Scene Shop at work and let the fine folks there help me out.  Did you know an ATB will fit nicely in your standard size car cup holder?  Because that's totally how mine rode up to work with me. 

I did have to pound a small nail into the top, which scared the crap out of me because I had already glued on my feet and a lot of other delicate/fragile little bits and bobs.  Those little feet held on tight, thanks to my trusty E6000! Wink

All in all, it seems to be coming together nicely, and the folks in the Scene Shop loved the theme.  Cheesy

I kinda wonder just how much of my ATB is held together with E6000, and how much is held together by hope.

A new Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Bean Mini-Challenge has been posted!  



What's this week's bean!?!?  Take the Portkey to the Deputy Headmistresses Office to find out!


Please note you are welcome to do any, all or none of these challenges as they come up throughout the semester.  They are not intended to cause stress, but are instead intended to get your crafty Muses singing.  Neither the Headmistress or I will complete ALL the classes and challenges posted this semester.  So relax, and craft what you love.

I think Clmentine would be a lovely name for a doll.  Smiley
