1  Re: Dotee Swap #13 Send out 11/30/12 in The Swap Gallery by Angelicus on: November 25, 2012 08:17:24 AM
I have also received a lovely dotee from Dr. Craft. She combined my themes of growing, autumn and fantasy in a really creative way. Apparently this is also her first try at solid beading - I wouldn't have guessed it!

Thank you so much Dr. Craft Smiley

2  Re: Zine swap Gallery! in The Swap Gallery by Angelicus on: November 25, 2012 08:12:22 AM
Well. I've now received all four of my zines. I arrived back home after a trip away to find three waiting for me. I've had a flick through them all and I look forward to reading them properly.

The first zine I received was the lovely one by Yoopidu about Hawaii. Unfortunately, I couldn't find it when I was taking all the pictures but I really enjoyed all the pages about kayaking - it really feels like a completely different world for me. I also thought that the mix of type and hand written bits worked very well. It is especially relevant as I have a flight booked for the USA on the 12th December and I'm going to go travelling. Even if I don't make it to Hawaii, this certainly whetted my travelling appetite. Again, a massive apologies for not putting pictures here, as soon as I find the zine I will edit to add pictures.

I received the zine Pug Love from lancmaltby. I really like the card you used on the zine and the very high quality printing. I can definitely see this as a very good coffee table zine to add a little bit of interest. It has a very whimsical feel.

I received the zine Brain Snippets from rougeraven. I haven't had a proper chance to read it but it looks very relevant to my life as I am finding myself in need of focusing more on my creative side (I lose too much time to that frenemy the internet!) I really like bird/godies insert, it added a lot of interest to the zine.

The final zine I have to share with you today is Stuf to do... by goddessgarb. THe suggestions that I've flicked through look really fun and I like the use of diferent type settings and the hand drawings. I think that this might end up in my hand bag for whenever I need a little bit of inspiration.

Thank you to RougeRaven for organising this fantastic swap, to all the people I've received from for the fantastic zines and for all the people I sent to for being so patient with my late sending.

Thanks for all the job congratulations people Smiley Also, I hope everyones got through the storm safe and sound.

I've finally managed to update my shop a little bit - I'm now offering customised crochet fingerless gloves for 1 point Smiley I've got a whole range of (mainly acrylic) yarn at home and can do most crochet stuff so please just send me a pic or pattern if thats something you would like.

I've also got some clay ornaments on the go, which I should be able to put up sometime tonight/tomorow. I'm thinking of offering both unpainted and painted ones.

Is anyone interested in card making supplies? I've got quite a bit of stuff but make very few cards nowadays.

Also, I'm still really struggling to get decent photographs. I think that is half my cameras fault but even so...if anyone can point me in the direction of some good tutorials/have some tips that would be really lovely Smiley

I love all the cards that have been sent this time - there really are a creative bunch of people on crafster (not that I'm really surprised!)

I received the lovely card below from Jillybeans on my bra theme and she also sent some lovely paper goodies as extras:

I received not one but two lovely cards from Imera. She claimed me for 'bubbles' but also did me an extra on fashion.

Thank you so much both of you Smiley

6  Croque-en-bouche / Croquembouche in Dessert by Angelicus on: October 29, 2011 11:15:44 AM
After being inspired by the tv show The Great British Bake Off that was recently on the BBC, my friend and I decided to create the great croque-en-bouche (also spelt croquembouche - not actually sure which one is correct!). Despite a few (semi!) disasters along the way, which you can read more about on my blog post, we were very pleased with the end result.

Not quite the elegant creation of the french masters of pastry but, hey ho, for a first attempt I'm pretty pleased Smiley

Attempting to add height to the creation Wink

The recipe that we used - more or less - was this one: http://www.deliciousmagazine.co.uk/recipes/croquembouche
And for more photos and a lot of background story - inlcuding the mishaps, check out my blog post here:  http://thoughtsonbubblesandstuff.wordpress.com/2011/10/28/croque-en-bouche-or-tales-from-a-mutinous-kitchen/

oooh, really?is there a tracking thing you used to see if it arrived or did she pm you?

She PM'd me. However, since then my partner seems to have gone AWOL  Sad so I'm posting the things that I sent to her. Apologies for the really crappy photos - i realised when doing this that i am unable to hold a camera still!

Edit: Also, sorry the pics are so big - not sure how to resize them!

Crochet jewelry:
I was really excited about making these as I've been wanting to try my hand at crochet jewelry for ages - it was on my to do list for this year.


Pom-pom hairbobble made with crazy pink monster yarn!

Crochet bag/purse:

Very skinny cowl/scarf (also, my necks obviously not that long in real life! Some weird camera trick!)

A few extra bits and bobs (lip gloss, pink hair bands, high heel cushion things, eye shadow and fake eyelashes):

I was really pleased with how everything came out in this swap so I hope s_khushi enjoys everything Smiley

Hiya everyone,
One more page to share with you all. I've been neglecting my art journal recently but hopefully february's going to give me some more space to get going. I'm also thinking that i might do the calender page thingy Wink - they always look really pretty. As always, more info on my blog  Cheesy

Just done my second page. And remembered to resize the images as well to fit on craftster!

I'm really pleased with how it turned out. I had a lot of fun doing the background and it was interesting doing a bit of experimenting with masking tape Smiley

The image on the right is (very much) my work in progress. I actually started the drawing in july but obviously didn't finish it so I decided to use the paper, and therefore the image, in my journal.

10  Turquoise flower fingerless gloves in Crochet: Completed Projects by Angelicus on: May 21, 2010 11:50:26 AM
I made these ages ago but have finally sewn them up, just as the weather is turning nice and toasty  Embarrassed Wink Sorry about the bad pics.

I made them as a bit of an experiment to see whether you could crochet the flowers directly into the item, so that there is no need for any sewing on (not that that is much of a hassle, but I just wanted to see whether it could be done. Which it can Smiley Below is the test patch that I made where you can see more clearly what I mean.

And one last funky pic for fun:
