Received bookmarks from 2 swappers!  1st one from Cory Barton:
It was broke  Shocked Bummer!  However I plan on finishing the edge on the large piece for my book mark and the top piece will hang on my rear view mirror!  The symbols shown are Triple Moon Goddess, the caduceus, a medicine wheel and on the back the symbol for alchemy, an ankh, and the eye of Horus.  I'm inspired!

I love the triple moon sign!  Very nice crackle effect, the pictures do no justice. Thank you!

Ack!  Kid's fingers are everywhere.

2nd one is from Harvey, a lovely embroidered piece.  It's a coffee molecule!  Bordered by a quote from Star Trek Voyager: Coffee, the finest organic suspension ever devised!  --I agree and thank you for such fine craftswomanship.

By the way, the colors are maroon lettering with a tan and teal molecule and the backing is matching tan felt.

Received 2 bookmarks from GiddyupMunky today.  They're gorgeous. 

1st one is a coffee and creamer thong:

I'm taking that one to church in my bible to insight envy among the church ladies

2nd one is from an anime tarot card set, auspiciously of the sword royals:

Above is the front, showing the king and queen of swords
Below is the back, showing the prince and princess of swords

 The pictures don't do much justice.

Got mine from Smarrt today!

Here's a shot of the front:

Here's a shot of the backs:

the quotes read:
Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed and digested.
Francis Bacon (1561-1626)
It is inhumane, in my opinion, to force people who have a genuine medical need for coffee to wait in line behind people who apparently view it as some kind of recreational activity
-Dave Barry

Here's an action shot of me ready to drink coffee and bookmark the page I keep trying to read but the kids keep interrupting and then I have to go and reheat the coffee again.

I really like the embossed paper.  Pretty!

4  amirugumi 2 peas in a betrothed pod (with linked pattern) in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by chelleoxford on: January 12, 2009 09:04:49 PM
Hi!  Here's a completed project from a free pattern posted on lionbrand.com .  I made this for my cousin's engagement party.  It was so easy to make (my first amirugumi but I'm can crochet well enough).  
Here's a link to the pattern:

5  Burda's "Charlie" Reusable Grocery Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by chelleoxford on: October 27, 2008 08:44:51 AM
I wanted a gi-normous purse to take on a flight.  Being the mom figure I knew I'd be carrying my purse, the kids' items, all our travel docs, and various snacks.  So I found the free pattern on Burda, "Charlie". 

Here's the mushy side:

Here's the flowery side:

Here's an action shot!

I used a different fabric for each side because I really wanted to use my mushroom fabric but failed to realize that I only had enough for 1 side, oh well.
The inside is white flannel material that was left over.  I didn't spend any money making this!  This is a great reusable shopping bag and it went together in a matter of like 2 hours, which for me is like instant gratification.

6  Hair Anemone in Crochet: Completed Projects by chelleoxford on: October 27, 2008 08:18:12 AM
So, I just started making stitches and came up with a crazy flower twist that looks more like an anemone.  I like it though, and plan to make a variety of colors.  What does it look like to you?

7  Leg Warmers in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by chelleoxford on: October 26, 2008 05:03:24 PM
I reconstructed these from a pair of my daughter's stretch pants she'd outgrown but I couldn't bear to let rest.  These were size 2T pants, I cut off at the crotch and hemmed; now they make great leg warmers for me!

8  Re: 2008 Completed Costumes Scrapbook! (completed project pictures & links go here!) in Halloween Costumes by chelleoxford on: October 26, 2008 04:39:28 PM
Here are pictures of my daughter's costumes.  Midori is a witch, I used Simplicity's 3853 pattern and left the sleeves open instead of gathered.  Add a witch hat and patent leather boots and we're good to go.

Hazel is Princess Fiona and rather than buying the pattern I modified Simplicity's 4949 pattern for Aurora and took out the peplum and collar.  The dress originally is off the shoulder with spaghetti straps and my 3 year old wouldn't have it.  So I had to do some extra mods and pull the sleeves up.
The green is a satin material that I probably won't be using again; one of the seams has already ripped out because I didn't line or interface, oh well.
