1  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Digital Photography Swap on: May 29, 2011 04:21:38 PM
London, Paris, Lucerne (Switzerland) and Munich.  It was kind of a whirlwind trip, but a total blast.  Smiley

Came home from Europe with amazing photos and a nasty case of bronchitis.  Still worth it!  Cheesy

Working on frame, now to convince someone to ship it for me.

Flakers stink, and doubly stink for this swap!


I wish I had time to be an angel.  I'd love to help out.

This is so COOL!
I'm so glad I had a little part of helping out (hehehe pun intended!)  Smiley

I was eagerly searching for my inchies as soon as I could pull up the pics. 

This is an awesome project.  Thanks for sharing the end result!  Smiley

Yay!!! It made it!  I'm so glad you liked everything!  I felt so terrible about mailing late that I had a nightmare last night that it never got to you, and instead wound up somewhere in Africa.  x)

Out of curiosity, did the glass for the picture frame survive the trip?  I didn't hold great hope as I had no idea how to package it, but some part of me is morbidly curious.  It's a little like Will It Blend... Did It Break? Wink

It is indeed finals week here, too.  I'll definitely be glad when it's done! 

And if you ever might make it to Alaska, keep my contact info.  Smiley  It would be pretty darned cool to get to meet one of my swap partners. Smiley


Don't worry about sending late, that's usually what ends up happening to me.  We really do share a perpetual lateness!  lol 

The glass did survive  Smiley  I put it in the frame after taking pics.  Packed very nicely.  I always worry about sending glass, there's just no good way to pack it really. 

I always plan at least one big trip a year.  Might just have to make it up to Alaska next summer!  Guaranteed you'd have a big hug coming.  Cheesy 

thank you so much again!  You did an incredible job.  Cheesy

Alright, camera found and pics taken.  Let the oohing begin!  Smiley  Be forewarned, big pic heavy post here.

Ok dear partner, you were on the narrowed down list but I have to admit I didn't guess.  It seems we share a habitual lateness in life.  My mom likes to joke that I was even born late!  lol  Still, no worries.  This box made the wait totally worth it.

I almost didn't go to the post office today, just got off work after a very long day where Murphy's Law was in full glory today.  Decided to stop anyway where I found this waiting for me

All the stickers are great!  This one has to be my favorite though  Smiley

It was all I could do not to open it in the car.  Had to be patient, something like this needs time to go through.  Smiley
Finally get home and open it up to find a ton of goodies

(I'll get to the "boring" package in a moment)

Start opening and let the squees begin!  I must have known something subconsciously - at work (I work at the local zoo, today I was in the IMAX theater) I had a chance to watch one of our movies.  I watched "Alaska"
This is what I opened first in this box of lovelies

Inside the envelope with "the world's least impressive drawing of a peacock" (which I rather liked actually  lol) are a little clue.  Some awesome postcards from my partner's state: Alaska! 

Another small package.  Magnets to add to the collection on my fridge.

I love these.  I've been wanting to travel up there for years now, ever since my grandparents went the first time.  They loved it there and their stories were so vivid, I want to see it for myself.  Smiley

Plus a few extra goodies.
A Pez rubber duck (love! the candy and the duck!), a bird mobile to make, and most importantly a purple sketchbook!  Just the right size to stick in my purse.

Then on to the larger packages.

First some napkins for my table.  I have a vintage 50's table with chrome and a black top with white swirls.  These will go perfect on it, just the right touch!  I love jewel tones, especially purple and deep reds.  Smiley  Each one has a unique pattern in tiny beads.  A little sparkle for the table.  Smiley

Next - a pillow for my couch.  Beautiful embroidery of an octopus.  Again my partner got it all just right.  There was some serious squeeing when I opened it.  The whole octopus is deep red, for some reason the pic makes it look pink, on a brown plaid.  I love embroidery though it totally escapes me, so I admire anyone who has a talent for it.  Smiley

And the best part of this whole package?  Harold!!!!!
One of my all time favorite books is Harold and the Purple Crayon.  I still have my copy from when I was a kid.  Plus she added my favorite quote!  LOVE LOVE LOVE  This is going up on the living room wall where everyone can see  Cheesy

The "boring" package is the glass for the frame.  This is beyond awesome!

Everything unwrapped and piled together

This was such a great swap.  I would love to do another round!

My awesome, talented partner is none other than...


S is for Summer

I love everything!  Thank you so much for making a great package! 
I hope school is going well.  If your schedule is anything like mine you're probably dealing with finals about now.  Good luck!

Could you hear the squeeing?


Will be posting pics shortly, have to find my camera to show off the awesomness that arrived today.  Cheesy

I love that mug!  Want one!  Cheesy

So many cool things showing up in the gallery.  I really need to learn how to stencil, I keep seeing projects that are so cool using stenciling.

Still waiting........   

I'm so bad at being patient!

I participated in a swap similar to this a while ago, that one turned out to be a lot of fun.  Very tempted here.  I'm going to Europe in three weeks - many many great photo opportunities!  Gives me an excuse to take more photos (like I needed one  lol)

Have to think about this one seriously.  Smiley

Scratch that.  Decided to join!  Smiley
