A jellyfish, octopus, and anglerfish..

Thanks Kat!

Got my package from Ruby Copperhead. Kinda late but the UK mail system is super slow this time of year. She made me a hobbit hole themed mini afghan and a super cute teeny Gandalf who is currently watching over my LOTR DVD collection Smiley

(plus some extras!)

I just uploaded the pics of my fabulous swap items from DanniQuee and here you go:

first off 1) my house item which is a lovely hand-painted Ravenclaw girly tee and 2) directly from Ollivander's, my very own wand:

next, I'm all set for potions class with this gorgeously detailed chest (my mom will probably want to steal this, she's a miniaturist! Also, that's a great use of thumbtacks, they make the perfect tops for little round-bottom flasks):

lastly I got some awesome extras including a great time-turner so I can make it to all my favorite classes on time as well as some wizardly earrings that I am planning on wearing to my dinner party tonight Smiley

Everything is amazing DanniQuee, thanks so much for being my swap buddy!

When I got home today I was sad to see that there was no package from Foxy Sam at my doorstep but then when I was getting in my car to go to swim practice I saw a package at my landlady's next door and saw that it was was addressed to me! I had to run inside and open everything to see what Sam sent before I left and was therefore a tad late to practice Wink
Before you scroll down, you better put on your earmuffs (and prepare to be a little jealous)...



The toys/accessories:

A mandrake! Hope your earmuffs are on tight! I am so excited about this, it's amazing! Well done Sam! It doesn't have a name yet but I'm open to some suggestions. I even have a little plastic pot for it. Sorry it is sideways, not sure why, I  did try and change it.

Also, my own pygmy puff with a cute pink nose (no name yet either):

The wearable:

A reversible Gryffindor/Hallows mini messenger bag. The buttons are heavy so it keeps the flap shut! Here's more detail on the other button:

The treats:

Some lovely acid pops with reusable pop covers and Honeydukes honeycomb chocolate (which was unfortnately like molten lava when I picked it up since it was sitting in the 115 degree heat for a small portion of the afternoon but is now safely in the freezer solidifying back up and will be just as delicious!). Plus a baby giant squid finger puppet extra (I'm thinking Squiddlesworth at this point)

Group shot:

Thanks Sam, you were an awesome craft buddy! I love everything!

I received my swap package today! It came in a fabulous timey wimey box:

I had asked that if she made jewelery, that it be subtle and only those "in the know" would be able to understand and here's what I got!

It's a gorgeous charm necklace with 4 charms on it:
1. a key to everything representing Donna with a "noble" crown pattern
2. a "S" charm for Sarah Jane (and coincidentally my first initial!)
3. a heart locket with a double heart pattern on the front and a secret little pic of Ten and a Gallifreyan pattern inside!
4. a tardis blue bead which came with matching tardis blue earrings!

Thanks so much Dana, I love it!

6  Dalek sewing caddy in Completed Projects by craftyzooprgrl on: April 28, 2011 07:23:29 AM

His head is a pin cusion and his body is storage for sewing things. The body is made from a tin can embellished with fabric, cording, and polymer clay. I got the sewing caddy idea from book CraftCycle by Helen Boyd and just took it to the next level by making it a Dalek.

This was originally made for my partner in the One Tiny Doctor Who Thing Swap. Hope it helps her exterminate the items on her long list of sewing projects Smiley

7  giant sushi maki cake in Dessert by craftyzooprgrl on: August 22, 2010 10:13:55 PM
Here's another homemade fondant cake I made for my mom's birthday back in March. She likes sushi a lot. The "seaweed wrapper" and the "fish" are made from the fondant. the "rice" is dessicated coconut. The cake itself uses three or four round cake pans, enough to give it height.

usually you sift the powdered sugar to make it smooth but I didn't do it this time around to give the wrapper texture.. yeah that's why I did it.. I didn't forget or anything.. good thing it turned out better that way Wink

8  octo-cake in Dessert by craftyzooprgrl on: August 16, 2010 08:48:45 AM
I made this for my friend's 5 year old. I think she liked it! It's done with a Betty Crocker Bake and Fill dome and a plain circular pan. The legs were cut from the pan and attached to the mold with pink frosting. The suckers are marshmallows and the facial features are made with homemade marshmallow fondant.
Enjoy!   Cheesy

9  icelandic hat and fingerless gloves in Knitting: Completed Projects by craftyzooprgrl on: August 16, 2010 08:32:39 AM
I made this with some Icelandic wool that I purchased in Reykjavik a few months ago. The wool is very hairy and fragile. The design is from a photograph I took at a tourist shop and I just used a basic hat pattern. This was my first attempt at fingerless gloves. I'll probably make a couple more sets until my wool runs out.
Enjoy!  Cheesy
