11  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: October 2010 Birthday Discussion and Gallery! on: October 20, 2010 06:28:22 PM
Just have to share some awesome craft-related awesomeness. I'm 20 today and you know what my dad and his wife bought me? AN AMAZING SEWING MACHINE!! I've been using my sister's gramma-in-law's ancient pfaff mess and this is a freaking gorgeous Singer!! And it's all perfect and has red on it and it's amazing, and you know what this means?

I CAN DO SO MUCH MORE FOR SWAPS NOW!!! I had to share my joy with yall before running to the list thread to pick someone to 'help me' utilize my new baby. <3

((Also means my entry for the current contest won't be so suckish, but that's beside the point!))

LOOOOOVE your stuff! Homigosh! The styling is awesome. Don't care for your models, but i'm one of those losers who's seen every episode of America's Next Top Model and thinks (probably wrongly) that she could take any one of those girls any day by now... XD Your black and white jacket is my favorite piece, I'd wear it in a heartbeat.

Ehh, don't worry about me, troublet. I used to be a dancer. And I've noticed, as my weight's going down, my balance is loads better. I think it has to do with my development of a bum, honestly. Didn't have one before, so I'd always kinda fall forward, but, well, ya know. Yeah. Basically, I'm fine. XD

Beware: TONS of photos!

So, I'm convinced I'm the luckiest recipient in this swap. No offense. I got freaking spoiled. I got claimed for a half apron, expected a tiny little box or a bubble-wrap bag in my little mailbox. I was wrong. I got a huge box, so big it had to go in the huge mailbox below the community ones, and so heavy I didn't think I'd be able to carry it down the street and around the corner back to my house. But I survived, thank goodness!

So I start opening my package and there's glittery red tissue paper, which I'm totally using for my costume this year. And there's a cute Dr. Seuss card, which is genius because I love Dr. Seuss with all my heart and I never even told her that...


Next I unwrapped these three bags made from magazine pages! By this point you can see I'd already opened them. ^^"

Inside one, we have various colors of cross stitching / embroidery floss, in another was a pack of needles, and in the last was a beautiful book she made/wrote:

In addition to the lovely collage page above, there's a beautiful story about an old man who lived by the sea, who loved gardens and telling the author stories. And because he was old, he died. No more stories. So, to remember him, she planted a garden of her own. That's all paraphrasing, and I may have messed a bit of it up because my niece is checking it out and won't let me check, but that's the lovely gist of it!

I also recieved cross-stitching books from the 80s and 90s, holiday themes (boy there are some awesome obscure ones!!) and a cross-stitch caligraphy book!

Heehee, sparkly paper. <3

And now, the very thing I was claimed for - - the half apron! She said she didn't use a pattern and I'm like, whoa, dang!! It's so beautiful! I love the colors and and it fits me perfectly, with enough of a band to make a big fat obnoxious bow, like I like! I use a boutique camera lens so I had to stand faaaar away from a mirror, and in order to do that I had to risk my life by straddling my sister's garden tub. A nice quality photo was worth it, I think!

And the big patch of embroidery/applique/whatever amazingness it is - - IS A POCKET!!!

So in conclusion, I'm the most spoiled rotten little newbie swapper in the entire universe. Thank you - beyond all words - for this amazing set of birthday gifts, PurpleLime. <3

I've been busting my butt over my costume. Almost pulled an all-nighter last night but decided against it when midnight hit. XP I have to have mine ready by this Saturday cuz I'm having a birthday/Halloween party. Bleeeeh. I still don't know what to do with shoes. But this contest bit is fabulous inspiration to keep at it. I should prolly be working on it now if I'm gonna get it done in time... XD

Homigosh. So I totally recieved from PurpleLime DAYS ago. The day after I played a ridiculously awesome prank on my sister (she called it juvenile and cruel, I call it effing hilarious!). In retaliation, she hacked my most visited websites that I have accounts on and changed all my passwords to a certain part of the male anatomy (found that part out later...) and switching the email addresses so I couldn't get new password junk. My friend Philly has had my computer since then, re-hacking for me. And he's amazing and fixed it all!!

Sigh, you can't make that crap up...

Anyways, I'm loading the photos of my package onto my computer as we speak!!

And cinnamon, I'm so so so glad you like your banner!! Your photo looks much better than the ones I took. koolaidria = decent newb, huh? Cheesy

Happy Birthday, Spotnik!
Happy B-lated B-day, Gravity!
JOIN US, PURPLE LIME! It's my first swap, too. Mai Britt's also. Newbs unite, right?

Anyways, I'm super stoked. Made my first claim and got all the fabric and tools ready to construct! I'm going to try to make most of it tonight. Insomnia's good for something after all, I guess!
