21  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Jar of Whimsies Rd 11 on: July 30, 2012 09:15:41 PM
OH MY GOODNESS!!!!!!!!!!!
it was a package of awesomeness, of pure unadulterated awesome. and there were so many pictures that the ones here just scratch the surface of its beauty Smiley (ummm yes, I enjoyed this swap immensely, why do you ask?)

She decided to go with a retro theme with some african undertones (mine to her was "confetti" because I couldn't choose one) but anyway....the pictures! there were 2 "jars"; a jar and a lunchbox, contained within another "jar" of a backpack!

lion backpack! I;ve already worn it to work and I've had it less than 24 hours Tongue

awesome flipcard kind of thingy with awesome things Smiley

pinup lunchbox! I'm going to be the coolest kid at college come September Smiley plus I'm a navy brat Smiley

whimsy from inside the lunchbox

fabric whimsy

tea and cupcake pincushions and bear thimbles and pretty bangles oh my!

some beautiful crafted african masks from the jar Smiley

inside the jar. i couldn't take enough pictures but this is a bunch of little whimsies, necklace, beads, a bunch of studs(yesyesyes!) and some candy Smiley

incense, tiny elephant candle, and beautiful earing that I also wore to work an hour later Tongue

erasures, a little vase with a kitty, and a baby iron for my closet housewifery Smiley (how did she know?)

Okay, the best two for last folks.....

how did she know I've always wanted a venus flytrap? I don't know, this girl is a genius folks, and if you don't belive me look at THIS....


Its so perfect....so beautiful... She combined my love of the vintage style, with my love of medicine (i'm a nursing student), with my love of looking pretty! i mean really....so much awesome.....

she just got my style and personality so perfectly! I hope she was half as awestruck by my package to her. I know I said I was going to wit to post these till i got back from my little trip...but i couldn't wait!

23  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Tattoo Swap on: July 29, 2012 08:05:40 PM
I'd like to do a tattoo themed swap, but have never organized a swap before and I'm not really sure where to start. I've looked about and couldn't find a "so you want to organize a swap!" post

I've asked around a bit and I think a tattoo swap would be pretty popular seeing as there are so many craftsters with bodymods and ink, not to mention those that just love the art form, but am I being too ambitious to do this? am I even allowed to?

slowpoke that I am, I received my lovely package from stacysews over a week ago, I just haven't had time to post it!
here we are Smiley

This is the picture that was posted on her blog (which by the way is awesome and fun) because the shirt got forgotten at a friends house Tongue

I love the foil crown, and it has little rhinestones too! but by far the most awe inspiring thing is that the stripes (she replaced the sleeves with the rainbow fabric) are PERFECTLY matched! I mean...wow...I don;t think I've ever flawlwssly matched patterns before.

and now a picture of me in the shirt!

you can't really see the sleeves in this picture, but it fits great Smiley and I love it Smiley and all my family is super jealous Wink
Its my new favorite tshirt, I've been wearing it EVERYWHERE!

according to the page i took it off of, the poster is supposed to say "women workers, take up your rifles!" which I basically took to be the russian, more bad ass equivalent of "we can do it" with Rosey Riveter Smiley

Yay! first pictures! I give you......*insert drumroll* the beauteous package of Calbazza!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

first off, a lovely journal/sketchbook cover with little do-hickeys that keep my pencils in place. I LOVE that its a cover so I can switch it between journals.

Also with my lovely notebook were these pens and pencil sharpener so I had no excuse to not get started writing right away

Awesome, perfectly sized messenger bag, and just to show how perfectly sized it is...

I brought it with me to the glbt pride parade Smiley and a girl actually asked where I got it too!

Thanks Calabaza!!!! Everything is so amazing Smiley I hope you enjoyed mine too!
