1  Re: Anatomy/Medical Swap Gallery! in The Swap Gallery by m8888888 on: August 25, 2008 12:16:16 PM
Whoops, I received like a week ago, and forgot to post pictures! Here they are, from my partner LmcBride.
A small purse, with bandagey handle and neuron- and cell-inspired fabric:

A blank notebook with anatomy images and quotes:

Very cool bookmarks with histology images, foil, and copper tape:

And my favorite, an awesome, super-bright and colorful painting:

Thanks again Lmcbride and our fabulous organizer! This was fun!

I just received my package from rangerbeth! So much cool stuff!
A necklace and earrings made of buttons:

A lunch box made of cool leather and pretty red and white fabric, and a reusable sandwich wrap:

A re-conned t-shirt she embroidered with an Earth that says "Hug me"

& my favorite a messenger bag made from old pants and lined with pretty flowery fabric. This picture doesn't do it justice, but I couldn't get a good one.

Thanks again, rangerbeth!

My partner sent on time, I just spaced on giving her my new address, so it went to my parents' house, and I just got it last week when I visited them. So here's the stuff I got from crochetninja:
A lovely sea picture!

A journal she made!

Clay buttons!


& a little purse!

Thanks again, crochetninja!

I received from Raynbow! It's really nice! There's a skein of purple, a skein of blue, and then one smaller one of the two plied together!!! That's a fantastic way to make sure I can use them together for one project!

I just have to figure out what to make... maybe a scarf?!
Thanks again, Raynbow, and thanks organizers!

I got my package like a week and a half ago, and have just been too lazy to post pictures! My partner, Tristitia, knows I loved everything, though!
First, a purse she knitted from old t-shirts! It's so cool and stretchy, and doesn't feel t-shirty at all! It also has a nice "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle" patch on it!!

Next, some tea, some natural lip gloss, a cute little vase for flowers that you hang on a window or something, & a book of ways to save the planet! The fabric-covered book is a journal she made, with paper bags and nature pictures as the pages!

& last, yaaaaaaaaaaaarn! Tons of it! She spun it herself, and it is fantastic!!

This swap was really fun! Thanks again to Tristitia and to the organizers!

I made 2 the other day! (My second 2, I posted my first 2 earlier in the thread, I think):

The blue one follows the pattern pretty closely and green one has a more bulbous body. Thanks again for the pattern! So cute!

Sorry for the late response, nicegoing! I've been out of town, so I didn't see your post. I have a Nikon D80, and my macro lens is a Nikkor 60mm, f2.8. I looooooooove it! I have so many plant and insect photos now... here's a bee one:

It's amazing to be able to get so close! I think I bought the lens used, and it really wasn't that expensive- Around $100 or $150, I think. I highly recommend it!

Thanks everyone for the positive comments! I love love love plant photos! & I'm really excited to get back to photography lately, after not taking any pictures for like 5 years. & I totally love my DSLR, after I said for so long that I didn't need one and that my film camera was better... it just makes it so much easier to take pictures, now that I don't have to worry as much about lighting conditions (because I can change the ISO and see right away if a picture is too dark/light), running out of film, paying to get it developed, etc... Plus it's so nice to be able to share my photos online and see everyone else's!
& since I'm posting, here are two more photos (I just organized all my plant photos, so I've been looking at them all for hours now!):

A cactus (duh!).
And nobody else seems to like this one as much as I do:

Can you tell I especially like Macro plant photos?!

Here are some flower photos I took recently around my parents' house. I love this time of year (well I would if I hadn't moved to Chicago a few weeks ago... it's supposed to snow tomorrow! What?!)!
Please let me know what you think, and any suggestions you have for me!

These are 3 cherry blossoms (I think!) and 1 dandelion, in case you couldn't tell. Taken with a Nikon D80. My flickr page is here, if you want to see more photos I've taken!

10  Re: The Super Sea Swap! Sign ups 5th April- 15th, send out by 15th May in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by m8888888 on: April 23, 2008 06:27:32 PM
I just sent in my info, since I saw the sign up was delayed, so I hope I'm not too late!
Here are my sea photos, since I was so inspired by the others on the thread!
A beach in Vietnam:

Mr. Seagull:

This is a black sand beach, made turquoise by the miracles of photoshop!

& don't forget the nice fish in the sea!:

Does anyone want to brainstorm things to make with me?! I need more ideas!
I was thinking of making some fish-themed jewelry, and some fishy placemats or potholders if my partner has a kitchen (my sewing skills definitely are kitchen-oriented!), and maybe some lovely driftwood sculptures (just kidding! I don't live near the sea, so you all are safe from my sculpting "talents"!!). What are you thinking of making?
