I know, I'm trying to find some too.  I just moved to Nanaimo from Port Alberni.  The only thing that I can think of is local farmer's markets.  I know the one in Port is kinda half veggies and stuff and half crafted goods, so things might be along the same lines in other towns.  If you find something, let me know.

I just bought the washers from the hardware store then used my dad's drill press to make the holes.  Then a good sanding and you're set to go. 

I love making this stuff cause it's totally unexpected and unique.  The harware store definitely has the best craft supplies.  I almost bought a type of plumbing tubing the other days to slice into rings, but I have too many projects on the go right now....Oh well...One day...

Sorry, I got my stuff awhile ago, but it was all confusing when I moved a couple of weeks ago.  I finally unpacked the other day and took pictures.  

I got a cool journal, and the cover is removable, so once I fill all the pages I can still have a cool Hello Kitty book!  Inside it has places for extra papers and a bookmark holder complete with bookmark.  I also got some cute stickers with it.  Thank you!

And here is what I sent to Second Star to the Right, since she didn't get to post pics...

The stationary and colouring book I got when I lived in Japan.  Even the pattern is from a Japanese craft magazine that I read at the library when I was supposed to be in class....(Technically it was studying since it took a lot of effort to read the Japanese instructions.  Much more interesting than a history or calculus textbook!)

I got my jewelry from semira the other day.  I love it!  Thank you so much!

Here it is...

And a closeup of the twisties and the colours....

And here's the stuff I sent her.  I love shopping for craft supplies at the hardware store!

I got my stuff from grasshopper the other day.  I was so spoiled!!  The stuff she sent me is incredible.  Thank you so much!!

Some awesome button earrings which went immediately from the box to my ears...

An adorable pillow with hedgehogs, which is perfect cause I just got a daybed and I want to load it up with comfy pillows...

And my favorite, a super fuzzy moose blanket.  I spent all night curled up in it.  It's so awesome!!

Thank you!

The fabric is just some white cotton type stuff I picked up at Wal-Mart for 2 bucks metre.  I wasn't quite sure what I was going to do at first, but after the purse started to take shape, I realized Marilyn would be perfect!  I'm gonna make one for myself too with all the leftover fabric.

I finally got my frame from emerald6 last week.  Thank you so much!  I really like it.  You managed to combine several of my favorite things....Bright colours and shiny things!  I love it.....Now the hard part: trying to decide which picture gets the honour of being displayed in it!

So I got my package from angelwing75 the other day and I was absolutely flabbergasted!  I so did not deserve all the goodies she sent me.  Things just kept on coming and coming out of the box.  It was like Christmas!  And I can't beleive the care she put into everything.  She even made Magic Box labels for everything.  Just amazing!

Here's a pic:

I got.....

- A cool hot pink purse, with an iron on of Angel and Buffy on it
- 2 sparkly wrist cuffs with amazing beads on them (Protection Cuffs - These magically delicious cuffs guard against the spells of the evil)
- Little wooden painted dolls of Buffy, Xander, Willow, Spike and Angel
- Some "Terrifying Bunny Stickers", complete with "Nightmare Warning!"
- A kintted "Neck Protector - Save your neck from fatal vamp bites and keep warm at the same time"
- A Buffy Mix CD
- A vial of "Mystical Beads"
- A set of 9 Buffy marble magnets in a cool tin
- A "Mystical Bookmark - Save your page in those dusty old tomes with an ancient mystical ribbon bookmark"
- A pair of "Black Frost" bottlecap earrings
- A ball of yarn (the same wonderfully soft yarn the Neck Protector was made out of) in Vamp Red
- A pair of "Vintage Magic Box Slayer Knitting Sticks - There's no better way to kill time while waiting to kill baddies than whipping up a hot new sweater with pointy little sticks"
- A painted black mini jewelry box, with red and white beads on the top
- A red and black jewelry set with gothic crosses (earrings, a choker and a bracelet)

Anyways, angelwing75, thank you again!  This has got to be one of the best swaps ever!!!

I got my pin from gaiter_girl the other day!  I absolutely love it.  Thank you so much.  And I totally love the fact that it's hot pink!  It's knitted, and then the centre is all beaded.  Plus she added wire to the petals so that they are all curvy.  It rocks!!
