1  Re: Stocking Stuffers Swap 2010 - Share Your Joyous Presents!! in The Swap Gallery by greenfaerie on: January 02, 2011 09:43:50 PM
So I finally got a free minute to photograph my amazing swap package for RubyRain!

I got:

4 lovely soaps with essential oils in great shapes.  The plain peppermint (not too strong at all, love it!) and the poppy shaped lavender one are my favorites.

Two lavender sachets for drawer or dryer!  Cheesy

Two washcloths, one varigated shells and one knitted with flower motif inside.

A Micheal's gift certificate!  Never can use enough supplies!

A silly cute snowman.  If you squeeze him, his eyes pop out.  Adorable!

A fabulous keychain with a Japanese girl on it

A beautiful blue scarf that's super super long.  Perfect for chilly beach weather!

A just-right project size bag that has a super cute owl on it!

A cute tree hugger bag in hemp!  I love reusable bags, the Peace on Earth/green tree theme, and a bit proponent of industrial hemp and related ecological implications.  Perfect for me!

One of my favorites, a trio of embroidered buttons.  Must create the right project for these!

My other non-Christmas favorite; a loaded charm braclet in icy colors Asian themed.  I LOVE this so very very much.  Cheesy  I can't wait to wear it to a local Chinese New Year celebration, as well as just in general.

She also sent a lot of beautiful felt retro ornaments, a stocking art hanging, and a owl pin cushion.  The pin cushion is currently in use lol, and the felt ornaments are still on the tree.  I want to make a second post later once the tree comes down to show them off in all my glory.  All of them are also my favorites!  Cheesy 

I had a wonderful swap with you, RubyRain!  Thank you so very much, love every last bit of your package!

My package came!!!!!  I got red handcuffs, and a pink handcuff set that'll fit on our bed, red crocheted panties and these amazing stretch crocheted opera length arm warmers and stretch fishnets with the most adorable red tops.  I really really love red and black like that!! 

It's so hard to take quick action shots of YOURSELF lol.  But I think it shows the neat crocheting and pattern for us all, anyway.

Thank you so much DV!!!  I love how much work you put into everything, and how much you researched my style!  Cheesy

I created this scratchboard piece for psychonmemphis for the I <3 Owls swap.  I had a very hard time letting him go!

I really should spend the time to get good photos of my own work.  lol

5  Cute Woodland Friends Clock with Glitter - Semi Retro/Vintage and Teal in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by greenfaerie on: June 26, 2010 04:40:27 PM
So, for one of last Christmas's swap, my partner Zcrafter went gaga for some super cute woodland friends paper.  I tell you, I searched a couple of Micheal's and had the clerks searching the store before we found it.  I brainstormed, and found this scalloped plate.... all it took was flipping it over and voila!  Clock base!

I painted it aqua all over to go with her decor, then used chunky clear glass glitter to give it some pop.  Then, having the last sheet of this that was in stock, I carefully used an X-acto to cut the paper to match. I didn't like the way the clock movement looked in the middle, so I decided to install it offset to show off more of the cuteness of the paper.  After I got the hole dremeled in, I knew I needed to make a stronger line between the paper and the aqua, so I decoupaged on some yellow embroidery floss.  A couple of coats of Mod Podge and sealer later, I installed the movement and here it is.

I really should take time to properly photograph my work!

6  Tiny Self-Satisfied Duckie in Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects by greenfaerie on: June 26, 2010 04:32:47 PM
I made this tiny duck for zcrafter in one of last Christmas's swaps.  She's made in OvenCraft (hope this is the right part of Pottery, Ceramics, etc to put it in), and I put the Sharpie beside her for scale. Zcrafter likes rustic terracotta figures, and this little duckie just felt right.

She is "glazed" in one of my secret tricks to approximating the look of real glaze, since post-college I've been cut off from doing "real" pottery with actual glaze.  I used a sheer nailpolish to give her a nice little coat.  It's also good for "reglazing" pottery that you might find at a thrift store but didn't quite have the look you wanted.  Smiley  Just don't use it for food, obviously.

7  Re: $4.95 Swap AKA Fill a SMALL Flat Rate Box R2 Goodie Gallery in The Swap Gallery by greenfaerie on: June 23, 2010 10:11:05 PM
What a cute kitty!! 

I received today after a long rough weekend, and it totally made my week!

I got a TON of really awesome Asian papers, some papers with writing, really awesome vintage and house papers, some fabric from *Hawaii*, a little paper doll made in Japan, a Christmas spider kit I find really fascinating!, a stud kit (kind of like a hand held punk bedazzler and oh so cool!), an embroidery hoop, some pages torn from a book (which one?  it looks interesting!) and pin backs.  How did you know I told the hubby that I need to get some pin backs next time I was at the store lol!  Oh, and there were some really nifty buttons and a few paper dragonflies!

She also made me this totally awesome lipgloss keychain thingie from the hawaiian fabric. I love it!  I love all keychain pouchies as I don't like carrying a bag everywhere!

I love it, FishyD!  You are an awesome partner and I especially love the Asian stuff!  Going to use some of it for my mom's gifts who is homesick for Korea (my parents lived in Korea for 3 years in the '70s), but going to have to be jealous and keep most of it!

I received a mini Spock from Teffy today!  He's adorable, and has wire in him, so he's poseable.  Yeah.  Cheesy  I may or may not have been forcing the cats to give mini-Spock rides today.  lol.


Check out the texture on his uniform!  Great fabric choice!

And here he is on the couch, watching the original Star Trek movie we got from Netflix today. Smiley

Sorry for the webcam photos. lol

So the hubby FINALLY got around to taking an action shot of me wearing my new fabulous gathering apron!!  Woohoo!!  I love it so much.

It's one of those nifty ones that you can gather up on the center string using buttonholes on either end.  No pictures of it up, but the underneath is white with a panel of haint blue.  Cheesy

Look at the material.  I don't know HOW you found such perfect material for me, so Art Nouveau and gorgeous, it even has water lillies lol.  I love water lillies, how did you guess?  I also love the purple material, can't decide which one I like best.

Then she made and embroidered two awesome herb bags, I love the detail on the leaf one, and the bee balm one is so very cute.  Cheesy  Will be put to good use, very soon.

Then, a great herbal book, that I have been reading since it arrived.  (You can see the wear on it from me reading it in the pic lol)

And some mugwort seeds I can't show cause they're in queue to be big beautiful herbs. Cheesy  I can't wait, I've been wanting some of that for years. Cheesy

Thank you SO much, cursive_queen!!  Sorry I was a bit later than expected on getting these wonderful crafts into the gallery, but I've already used the apron and the book, should show you how much I love them. Cheesy

Prepare to wist and be jealous, ladies!  Here's my swap package from cjclark!  Again, we swapped with the inspiration of L.M. Montgomery's work, and she made me a package based on Anne Shirley herself!

First, the quilt.  I actually got a quilt someone made for me.  It's the perfect size for in the car, I've found out, which is AWESOME when I get back in the car all cold and cranky from doing a winter ghost tour!  It's also awesome for surfing Craftster on the couch!

Here it is, modeled by a cranky husband and cranky cat.  The foreshortening makes her look huge, but she's actually super tiny, lol.  Or maybe it's her rage about me getting out the camera and trying to take the blanket away from her.

Here's the detail shot.  She actually used reproduction fabrics from the Civil War era, which is not only period appropriate for a quilt from Green Gables, it's also very appropriate as we do civil war costumed tours.  Very very awesome!!  I took it to one of my cooking shows, and the host about stole it from me LOL.

I love looking through all the interesting fabrics and trying to pick a favorite. Smiley

Then, and I don't know if I'm more excited about this or the quilt lol, is a NEEDLEBOOK.  Oh I've been wanting one of these since I was a kid and my mom had this really cool '70's owl one. Smiley 

This one is super cool with the snap, and the way it opens like a flower to reveal the needles.  My kitties thank you too, for helping keep them safe from needles and pins they might swallow.

Here's the inside!  I'm a huge fan of that gray/lavender color in there with the felt.

There was also homemade oatmeal bread and jam, but uh... it might be in my belly.  Smiley
