1  Re: Spell My Name Swap Round 2 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by LilyDay on: November 14, 2009 10:59:11 PM
Quasi and I met up today too exchange our packages, at a Cafe in town... It felt  so much like Christmas, I'm actually starting to get excited that it's so close!!! (It also helped I had a cinnamon and gingerbread iced chocolate [it was meant to be 40c today!!!!])

OK... So, in the other thread, I told you how I was spoilled by Quasi_one right?
Well here's the pictures!

T for  travel
E for Earrings
R  for Rainbows
R for Rubber ducks
I for Ikawa, Japan

This picture shows on the left hand side, some cute origami butterflies, a bunch of super cute square papers, a little elephant statue, rainbow hair clips and hair tie, and a pencil case with rainbow glitter pens... and some pink Asian brocade type fabric..

Here's a close up of the fabric and paper, as well as some poly clay pendant tiles Quasi made with Asian themed stamps...

She also did some great research about Japan, as my partner and I are planning on travelling there next year, and gave me an awesome bag for pasports and cash and documents, the type of thing you need easy access to, and some luggage tags. As well as some Japanese themed paper and stamped and coloured envelopes....

This is one of each of the _nine_ pairs of earrings she made me.... As well as two super cute flower rings, the photos don't do any of these items justice....

Quasi_one did an excellent job of getting my style and tastes down..! I have a very different style day to day so each of these items fit me great! Thank you so so so much Quasi_one for making my first swap unbelievable amazing, I feel awful that I received so many wonderful things, I definitely feel spoilled, and you made my very first  swap very memorable.!

2  HELP! Shadow Boxes???????????? in Discussion and Questions by LilyDay on: November 08, 2009 04:45:37 AM

I have a plan for Christmas presents for my new nephew to be (7 weeks to go!) and my new cousin (currently 2 weeks old). But I can't find any shadow boxes that aren't $9 each !

The plan is to use one box per letter in their name, and then put one letter of their name in each box, and decorate/scrapbookify/paint the rest so it suits their nurseries.

I don't care if they don't look fancy, because I'll be painting them. I just want boxes around 15 cm square, and anywhere from 5cm deep. Preferably with glass on the front like this,

But in an unfinished wood, just plain old cheap balsa wood is fine. I can't find these anywhere!

Since I need to buy 10 of these, $90 isn't really an option because of the rest of the supplies I need.

Does anyone have any ideas? Oh, I'm in Australia, I've checked lincraft and spotlight ($9 each) and I've checked all the cheaper craft stores and cheapy shops too...
