1  Re: WWP Beltane Fires Gallery (SO 4-25-11) in The Swap Gallery by RippledWater on: April 29, 2011 07:24:30 PM
Hey All!!!! Sorry it took me so long to post these. I received a few days ago from the WONDERFUL, FANTASTIC, and did I mention, AMAZING Monnie! Here's the whole lot together. Please don't mind mon tomates in the background. I have yet to plant those lol.

She sent me an incredible package. I'm going to try and have the pictures so it some justice without taking over the entire thread with her epicness.  Wink

So here we have an awesome spoon wand (which I have been lusting for!), A witch plaque, and broom sticks (i love witchy wall art!!  Grin . There is also a HUGE star candle (my favorite shape of course!! Everything is better with 5 points on it. Just saying lol), and four things of her amazing soap!! I have a terrible love for soap and I'm so excited that she sent me some. It made the ENTIRE box smell so delicious!!!!!!!

Here we have a star candle holder with an awesome smelling tealight candle in the middle with a leaf impression in it. It made me so happy. I kept sniffing it and my mom managed to walk by while I was doing so and shot me a very questioning look. lol. She really shouldn't be surprised. There is also two taper candles and a box or mini candles. I love the minis so much. I've a;ready gave them a purpose of serving on my ancestor wall altar. They're the perfect size! And what else is there.... why a spell book of course!! I have an unnatural love for books and journals and this is just perfect to fit in my purse and to take with me so I can write a few things when inspiration hits.

Why what's this? A box you say?

With seeds in it! Even better! The seeds correspond with a Memorial Garden how to that she wrote out for my kitty. He just passed two weeks ago today. Sad He had a good run though. He was just over 20 Smiley I've had him sine I was 4!!

She made me Witches Runes! Which I have never used before and I can't wait to try them out. She even included a sheet on how to read them. And what's that in the background. WHY A PENDALUM!!!  Grin  Grin

Canadian rocks! I'm so excited to add them to my collection! Everything is better Canadian! One day I'll make a road trip up there. It's in the works.  Wink

Another box of amazing goodies! I love the decorations on the box. The other side has the triple goddess.

She made me 3 TOL's (from my wist!!!), a necklace with hematite and moonstone, and a fertility bracelet!

Action shots you say? Why of course! I can't resist!!

Another EPIC thing she crafted for me was a tiara!!!! Monnie is so talented! I love it so much!!

Another action shot you ask? No need to ask!

She also made a wire basket for me!

I have another unhealthy obsession with baskets and boxes and she definitely appealed that side of my nature. Wink

Why a bundle of sticks? What could that be about! Beltaine of course! I can't go to the local festival this year, so I'm doing my own little mini need fire at home. She gave me all of the 9 classic woods for a proper Beltaine fire.

Each of the sticks has a note attached telling me what each one is and what is stands for.

So if you haven't noticed the amazing fabric that AI have been using to photograph on them shame on you! lol. Last but not least she made me an altar cloth!! Here's the other side of it!

Monnie is a woman of many talents and has spoiled me rotten!! I can't believe all that she has done for me. She went above and beyond. Thank you soooo much Monnie!!!!!!! You are beyond amazing!!!!

Crocheted eggs!!!!! I love them soooooo much!!!

close up of the triple goddess egg  Cheesy

Close up of the others! one has a star!!! I heart stars!! That's my favorite shape!

SOAP! I love home made soap so much. It's all I use now. I usually special order it from a local goat farm that makes their own. I'm excited to get some that were made just for me. They smell so wonderful!!! They are lavender and chamomile (two of my favorites!). I love the goddess mold she used.  Grin

Incense! It made the whole box smell amazing when I opened it up  Cheesy

And these are sugar eggs. They are traditional to be given in Switzerland and they are so delicious. I had to stop myself from eating them all before I took the photo. And they came in the cutest tin ever!

Everything was absolutely great! Thanks so much Morrigan!  Grin  Grin  Grin

Front: Tast the rainbow

Back: I wish I had slept with a few girls before my guy.

His death still makes me cry (pictured: Heath Ledger)

My "friend" begged me to go the NYC for our 40th birthdays. When really it was her 40th birthday trip all along and she let everyone in NYC know it. It was 7 days of pure HELL and the worst birthday ever. Sad

Sorry I didn't get to upload yesterday. Life has been very crazy the past 5 days. So, I opened my post box to find.....

ANOTHER BOX.... but not just any box. An amazing retro horror movie box!!!!!!!!! Jealous? You should be...

Day 1

DECORATIONS! I'm thinking of putting them on my TV and mirrors in my room to set a nice Halloween mood. Their so amazing!

Day 2

An EPIC witchy purse! I've already moved into it and took out for a day on the town aka to work  Wink I've already gotten compliments on it. Thanks so much Sue!

Day 3

Why... what's this you ask??? An amazing wallet. I have already moved it into my new epic witchy purse! I feel so glam and decked out for Halloween!!!!! This is the cutest, creative thing ever!

I put a piece of paper  in it so you can tell where the slot is! Amazing right?!

Day 4

What? A new epic makeup bag. At least that's exactly what I'm using it for!! So I can carry my "war paint" as I like to call it with me on the road. I just started a second job this week and I've been carrying everything around in a little sandwich bag! The fabric is so amazing!!!!! I'm so halloween ready!!!

Day 5
looky what I opened today!!

She included and extra so that I could open two in one day. I choose today to do that since I've been up since almost 3 am feeling like crud. So I first  opened the adorable pumpkin pin cushion. Which I was in desperate need of. It's so freakin cute! And next I opened......

Isn't it AWESOME! Wanna hear something spooky? During my 3 am wake up call I decided to watch TV and the really old school Casper cartoons were on!!!!! Coincidence? I think not!!

Day 6
What has day 6 brought me today? Another EPIC Casper cup!!!

And why what is this? I got a tiny box of whimseys inside my cup!!!!

I love them so! I think these clovers are my favorite. I actually collect real four leaf clovers. I'm so excited!!

Day 7

8  Gypsy Skirt of DOOM in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by RippledWater on: August 26, 2010 08:55:55 AM
Ok, I have to apologise for the crappy pictures. But I work so hard on this freaking' skirt, I refuse to not post it on here. lol. It consists of over 200 5x5 squares. I was going to make it like some of the massive floor length ones but that would have taken over 500 squares and I lost my sanity half way through this length... so nope... I just couldn't do it. I now have an amazing respect for all of the people who have made those skirts. SHEW! Here's a shot in some decent lighting. It also shows it's twirly possibilities. lol

Here's me trying to model it. lol

Here's a crappy shot of how twirly and wide the layers go.. I know it's dark.. I'm sorry.

And here's an action shot from my partner!!

All in all I love the skirt. And one day, I will make myself one.... But for the moment. I don't ever want to make another patchwork anything hahaha (ok I lie, I just need a few weeks break is all!)
Thanks for looking!!

9  Gypsy Amulet Bag in Beads: Completed Projects by RippledWater on: August 26, 2010 08:38:55 AM
I was in the gypsy swap this round and my partner had an amulet bag on her wists, but it was more witchy. I decided to make her one and make it more gypsy! I've never beaded anything before this (unless you count the pony bead projects you do in summer camp when your 12!). I'm rather proud of it. I'll be making myself one soon! It was actually quite easy once I go used to it. I think it took me about 4 or 5 hours of work that took place over a few days.

Does anyone know how to draft your own patterns for these? I tried on a different one. I wanted to make 2 for her, but the pattern I was doing came out all wrong. Is there a program I can use or certain graph paper? Thanks for looking everyone!
