21  Fallen London Swap? in New Swap Theme Ideas by sailorgirlbonk on: October 26, 2010 03:44:05 PM

Okay, so I have no idea if enough people play Fallen London for this to get off the ground, BUT...

If you're hooked on the game (http://echobazaar.failbettergames.com/) and want swag to celebrate, this is my swap idea. Show off how persuasive, dangerous, watchful, and shadowy you are!

Just some ideas of items:
Scarlet Stockings
Hastily scribbled notes
Honey-scented items
Bat stuffies!
Top hat/steam punk gear as appropriate to game items (i.e. cutpurse's mittens).

It would probably be a small swap (4 points) because with the holidays and finals coming up, there's only so much you can expect anyone to craft.

...eh, I'm probably the only person who plays this. But hey, it's an idea!

Oh my god, was I ever spoiled by Jaeliyah! I'm sorry it's taken me so long to get the pictures up (life happened, ick.) but seriously, this is in my top 3 favorite packages!

First up, shot of everything...

Why yes that is a freaking CHAIN MAIL SILVER PARACHUTE!!!

That's right. Bask in the awesomeness.

(The inside of the basket is a little grimy because I've been keeping little chunks of my lush body bars in it...let it be said that I'm totally a pampered District 1 brat...)

Speaky of shiny awesomeness, check out this gorgeous jewelry! I couldn't get good pictures, but these are gorgeous pieces!

The gold and black mockingjay bracelet is my favorite. I love it to bits!

More amazing chain mail work. I love this flower so much -- it reminds me of Rue!

I tried to figure out a good way to take pictures of these incredible book cover shadow boxes...

I love everything! Thank you so much for all your hard work, Jaeliyah! I was so lucky to have you for my partner in this swap. Smiley

I also wanted to include some more pictures of the heart all tied up and heart shaped, since I grabbed the camera back from my boy and it had some of the action shots. Smiley

Size comparison next to a movie-candy box of sour patch kids, my favorite sweets. Smiley

I received today! Thank you, AmiGurl! It's wonderful!

What a great sewn purse, I love the fabric. Smiley Stripes and polka dots together!

Inside was vanilla hand sanitizer, a hello kitty notebook, and a matching vinyl wallet! I love it, my duct-tape one is dying a slow and painful death.

And then, what may be one of my top five received items...

Haha, it's so cute! Thank you, I'm going to have to include some extra extras for you when I send! Wink

Wow, everyone, I don't mean to brag but I got the pants spoiled off me this swap! Sylvanna, I feel bad about not doing more, this was an incredible package!

A view of everything -- wow! I kept pulling things out of the box. Smiley

This amazing cross-stitch is on the cover of a very useful notebook -- grad school seems less scary looking at this!

Details of her wonderful work!

What could be in this fantastic box?

Mini character themed boxes!

Lafayette's came with recipes...

Sookie's had confetti and character stickers!

Sam's had stickers of his many forms -- so many stickers! How does he have time to shift into all of them!

Bill's had this gorgeous keyfob/zipper pull in my favorite colors!

But wait...there's more! (holy cow, right?)

A fangtasia pouch filled with school supplies...

A hard-cover notebook to take notes in!

A cross-stitch ruler!

And the stuffies which have a place of honor on my bookcase...


Yes, the little foam viking hat comes off! Eeee!

And on their backsides...

As if that wasn't enough, she also gave me a Dr. Who sticker magazine. I'm floored.

A thousand thanks!   Grin Grin Grin

I recieved from LiveLongandCraft, and I (FINALLY) got my camera found, working, with a freshly charged battery.

So onto the pics!

A steampunk themed craft box...

Closeup on the watch parts!

Oh, and speaking of watch parts...  Grin

A set of pearl jewelry in my favorite colors...

Steampunk dangle earrings! They were not into being photographed, but they're dangly copper links with half-moons made out of watch gears.

And extras! A knitting magazine and a book on afghans (ee!)

And a skein of malbrigo sock yarn. Smiley

Thank you for my package! What a lovely swap. When's the next round?... Wink

27  Re: Illustrate/Decorate My Favorite Story Swap Gallery in The Swap Gallery by sailorgirlbonk on: March 17, 2010 12:04:34 PM
Here is my full finished story! How lovely!

My first page, from Kartiana:

The two sisters were invited to a feast at the castle, and the prince begged his younger brother to escort Tatterhood. The younger twin brushed her hair and put on her finest kirtle for the event, but Tatterhood refused to change.
"You could wear one of my dresses," said her sister, "In stead of that raggedy cloak and old boots." Tatterhood just laughed. "You might take off that tattered hood and the soot streaks from your face," said her slster crossly, for she wanted her beloved Tatterhood to look her best.
"No," said Tatterhood, "I will go as i am."

All the people of the town turned out to see the strangers riding up to the castle, and a fine procession it was! At the head rode the prince and Tatterhood's sister on fine whlte horses draped with cloth of gold. Next came the prince's brother on a splendid horse with silver trappings. Beside hlm rode Tatterhood on her goat.

Page two, from ThatKid:

"You're not much for conversatlon." said Tatterhood. "Haven't you anything to say?"
"What is there to talk about?" he retorted. They rode on in silence until finally he burst out. "Why do you ride on that goat instead of a horse?"
"Since you happened to ask," said Tatterhood, "I can ride on a horse if I choose." At once the goat turned into a fine steed. Well! The young man's eyes popped open wide, and he turned to look at her with great interest.

"Why do you hide your head beneath that ragged hood?" I
he asked.
"Is it a ragged hood? I can change it if I choose," she said.
And there, on long dark hair, was a circlet of gold and tiny pearls.

And page three, from BluPaisan:

What an unusual girl you are!" he exclaimed. "But that wooden spoon-why do you choose to carry that?''
"Is it a spoon?And in her hand the spoon turned into a gold-tipped wand of rowan wood.
"I see!" said the prince's brother. He smiled and hummed a little tune as they rode on.

At last Tatterhood said, "Aren't you going to ask me why I wear these ragged clothes?"
"No," said the prince. "It's clear you wear them because you choose to, and when you want to change them, you will,"
At that, Tatterhood's ragged cloak disappeared, and she was clad in a velvet green mantle and kirtle. But the prince just smiled and said, "The color becomes you very well."

When the castle loomed up ahead, Tatterhood said to him. "And will you not ask to see my face beneath the streaks of soot?"
"That. too, shall be as you choose." As they rode through the castle gates. Tatterhood touched the rowan wand to her face, and the soot streaks disappeared. And whether her face now was lovely or plain we shall never
know, because it didn't matter in the least to the prince's brother
or to Tatterhood.

What lovely work from everyone! Thank you so much!

I recieved from MadamQ, and what a lovely package!

General shot of everything...

This absolutely amazing tea wallet which I love...it's in my favorite colors!

Open it up and...


Then this lovely little organza bag which contained earrings and a beautiful bracelet.

I couldn't get a good shot of the earrings, but I love them!

Stitch markers!

A great journal with one of my favorite flowers on it...

And the most amazing piece...

A PROJECT BAG! This is so amazing and professional, I'm already toting all my illustration supplies around everywhere with it.

Such tiny stitches! As a fellow crocheter I am SERIOUSLY impressed.

This was all so worth the wait! I'm so glad you're out of the snow, MadamQ! Thanks for my amazing package!

29  Beginning spinning attempts... (Image chunky!) in Spinning: Completed Projects by sailorgirlbonk on: February 03, 2010 05:08:08 PM
I got a drop-spindle for Christmas, so these are all of my attempts up to date!

My very first...Blue Faced Leistcher wool. Very lumpy and thick-thin.

Second attempt: Falkland. Gorgeous stuff and it came out much better since I actually know how to draft now!

Two different marino attempts. I don't enjoy this fiber as much, it's a little too slippery and wispy for me but the yarn is lovely!

My first attempt at kool-aid dying on pre-spun wool. I'm going to try dying the roving and then spin that for my next project.

And a shot of everything! I just want to roll in it...

Okay guys, here we go.

I was floored with my package, which included stuff from my wists, and some amazing surprises! PLUS, everything was beautifully individually wrapped. I was amazed.

General shot of everything...

Three beautiful pairs of earrings -- the button stack earrings are straight from my wist, thank you!

Two gorgeous charm bracelets and a cameo necklace...the little picture is the royal owl picture also from my wist!

The amazing photo cards mentioned already...

Two decoupage boxes. The big one was full of wonderful quotes!

AND...THE PURPLE VELVET TOP! I love this and it fits me perfectly.

Thank you thank you thank you, GigglyGirl! I only hope I can do enough for your package...  Cry Undecided Grin
