1  Re: Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Swap ROUND TWO - Gallery in The Swap Gallery by EowynUlysses on: August 09, 2010 06:40:55 PM
I received from JustDontChange today!

Everything all together. An awesome H2G2 Rubix cube, an improbable picture frame, Oolon Colluphid's bestseller and my very own copy of DNA's posthumous book.

Here's a better shot of the Colluphid book.

But wait, it's not a book at all - it's a secret hidey box!

And what's this inside? A Point-of-View gun necklace!

By the magic of MS Paint, I give you - all six sides of a cube at once!

Thanks a lot Lyssa!

So much awesome in this gallery already! I especially love Marvin's autobiography and the gargle blaster necklace.

JustDontChange said she received, but hasn't been able to post pictures. So here's what I sent her.

Everything all together - tea towel with embroidered green guy, crochet Marvin and a hand-appliqued 42.

Poor Marvin looks all sad!

I received from amusedcreations today and I love everything! The frame is really cute and all the photos are lovely. Here are just a few of my favorites.

The flash washed it out, but there is some lovely detailing in the blue. Wee flowers in a lighter blue.

The survivor tree in Oklahoma City, which survived the 1995 bombing.

A statue outside of the Cowboy Museum in Oklahoma City.

Baby jellyfishes!

Vanessa included a CD, so I uploaded most of the other pics to my flickr. http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/tags/photo7/ (Some of them were from her vacation to Italy and she didn't have digital versions. I'll try to scan in the prints later.)

Thanks so much Vanessa!

Here's another picture of the wool, to show the lovely colors.

Why is it that whenever I forget to take pics of my items, my partners take longer to post (and I had one not post at all!!)Huh

Sorry it took me so long to get pictures up. I took them right away but didn't upload them until today. I love everything you sent! The books are great and the crafts are so cute!

Los libros:
The Mermaid Chair by Sue Monk Kidd
I really liked her other book, but haven't read this one yet.
The Red Queen: Sex and the Evolution of Human Nature by Matt Ridley
I'm studying Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, so this book is right up my alley.
The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne
Lately I've been re-reading books I read in high school English classes, so this fits right in. Plus this copy has lots of extra essays, including some early critics.
The American Vegetarian Cookbook from the Fit for Life Kitchen by Marilyn Diamond
I've been a vegetarian for awhile, but I'm always looking for more recipes. This cookbook has lots of great ones, plus tons of information about nutrition, choosing fruit and vegetables and baking. Yay!

Here are two of the crafts, a wee adorable bookworm stuffie and bookmarks. I tried to knit a bookworm for you, craftADDchick, but it didn't turn out so cute as yours! It's funny how we keep repeating the same themes.

Here's a bookmark in use. They can also be worn as headbands, which will be so cute with my new haircut.

Here are eight fantastic notecards with quotes about books. I thought about using some of the same quotes in my crafts. I have a few penpals, so these will really come in handy!
My favorite quotes: "Outside of a dog, a book is a man's best friend. Inside a dog it's too dark to read." - Groucho Marx  Cheesy
"Wherever books are burned, men also, in the end, are burned." Heinrich Heine

Thanks so much craftADDchick! Everything is fantastic and I had great fun swapping with you!

Wow, there is a lot of amazing work in this thread! (I know it's been said, but it's just so true.  Wink)

Here is my first tattoo, I just got in on Saturday.

Anna at Stain Tattoo in Knoxville, TN did it and really improved upon my original design. It's right under my collarbone (my hand covers it when I say the pledge) and hurt so much. Still, I think it was worth it. It's been less than a week and I am so in love with it!

The tulips represent some I saw when I was in Edinburgh, three summers ago. I just fell in love with the city and how I felt about myself when I was there. (I took the train up from Cambridge all by myself. I was in a foreign country all alone and I felt like I could take on the world.) Yin yangs are about balance, which I sometimes struggle with. Also, Edinburgh struck me as a balance of ancient and modern, civilization and untamed wilderness. The quote ("Always roaming with a hungry heart") is from my favorite poem, Ulysses[/i} by Tennyson. It's about traveling and never settling, to always strive to make the changes I want to see in the world. My friend was going to go with me to get it done, but I ended up going by myself. It's rather fitting that it turned out that way, I think.

I received from sedrasmom today, so here are the goods!

All together, with stuff in bags as it arrived.
The book is full of delicious veggie recipes. Yay!

Close-up of the Holly Hostess/Parasite Pals bag.

The other side of the same.
These characters crack me up! It seems especially appropriate because I am a biology major.

What was inside the bag: rice molds, a sushi mat, chopsticks, and a case for chopsticks/silverware.

made bags, sized to fit my new boxes. Sorry the pic is somewhat blurry.

Hello Kitty boxes! Stack them together and you have a two-tiered box.

Aaand a parasite pals box! With matching fork and spoon. So adorable!

I've already packed a lunch for tomorrow in the parasite pals box. Rice balls and kidney beans sauted with onion, garlic, tomatoes and green chiles. Huzzah!

I received from Yulu today, so here are some pictures!
Note: You can tell how excited I am about this package by how many exclamation points I use. It's a lot!

(Almost) everything all together.

Lovely artwork, drawn with fabric crayons on Aida cloth. Phlox, morning glory and daisies/fleabane/black eyed susans.

A shot of the basket closed. Super useful for my attempts to stay organized and lined with lovely fabric.

Homemade scrub, toner and moisturizer. I'm running out of moisturizer, so this is excellent timing! Also, they were wrapped in bits of fabric that matches the basket. So I can make a wee bag or something!

Saving the last for best, a shirt with a tire swing on it! I almost cried when I saw this and put it on right away. It's based on some pics I posted on my blog (http://eowyn-ulysses.livejournal.com/47080.html#cutid1) of my grandparents' house. We've got to sell the place and I'm very sad to lose it. It makes me very happy to have a bit of it that I can wear and keep.

Thanks so much Yulu for being and awesome partner! Everything fits me perfectly!
Thanks also to Kenners and catpants for being great organizers and keeping everything going smoothly!
