I just got my goods today, and really, I wanted to cry because I was so happy. Cheesy StarSix made me the most beautiful jewelry set I could have ever wanted--No really, this is a big deal! I'm terrible when it comes to jewelry because I am entirely too picky, but she made me exactly what I wanted in my style! Thank you so much StarSix! It really made my day. (:

Here's everything together:

She made a necklace, bracelet, ring, and earrings in the brown style and included an extra turquoise bracelet and brown flower keychain that I am completely in love with. (: (: (:

Bracelet, ring, keychain:

Wearing the necklace because I love it so so so much!

Yay! This has been my favorite swap thus far. (:

Yeehaw, I just got my goodies from solidknapp today! Let me tell you, I was more than pleased with everything I received! She sent:

+pillowcase made from saris (I love this SO much!)
+two beautiful candleholders (these are my second favorite and just what I needed!)
+tin with Boy Meets World marble magnets (these sadly came unglued in the mail but I will surely glue them back together)
+little suitcase with giraffes on the front for storing crafts supplies and such
+Gilmore Girls notebook for crafty ideas
+storage box for little crafty supplies

Thank you so incredibly much! These crafts are not only wonderful, but so useful! And here are the pictures:

Yay! I got my package from monfrere yesterday. (: My book was Harold and the Purple Crayon by Crockett Johnson--the story: Harold is a little boy who can't sleep at night so he draws himself into wonderful adventures with his big purple crayon. (: Anyhow, here's what I received:

Everything: Pouch, handmade book, mini book, mini colored pencils, candy, notecard, and I really don't know what the elephant-looking thing is :/

My favorites: the pouch (with Harold's route embroidered in purple!) and the handmade travel journal--it's so well made! How did you get your pages so even!? Did you get them cut somewhere?

Thanks again!

I got my ziploc goodies from clayfaery today! I sent mine out awhile ago, so I hope they got to her safely. Anyhow, here's what she sent me:

My favorites are the beads and the ribbons. Thanks!

I store my floss on bobbins in boxes like these:

You can buy them here (http://www.needlecraft-australia.com/ezimerchant/prod354.htm) or wherever you bought your thread, I'm assuming. (:

Ok, so I'm a bit behind on everything regarding this swap, but I had to post to say that a couple days ago I picked up a WONDERFUL packet from fadeawaydream!!!

I don't have my digi here at the moment (we're painting the appartment, and everything is pretty much a mess), so I hope fadeaway took some photos...

Here's what she sent me:

* two dust-pink (not too good with colors in english... this might not be right) guest towels, with swirly-ish embroideries as decoration.
I must say, this girl knows how to work a needle!

* two pillowcovers in very cute old-fashioned flowered flannell... I haven't tried them yet, but next time I'm changing the bedlinens they're coming on for sure!

* four cups, beige with a green decorative stripe. these have already been used twice, once for red wine (midnight party in the park), and once for orange juice yesterday, when I had picnic with friends in said park. they're great, cause they're heavy enough to stand steadily on grass, but they're not breakable!

*last, but not least: a photo-frame felt wall hanging. this thing is SO well made! I'm impressed with your sewing skills fadeaway! this will be perfect on the wall in my craftroom... and it's beautiful!

Thank you sooo much!!!

And your packet is in the mail.. it should reach you in a week or two, I guess.

Yay! I'm so happy you like everything! I did take pictures before I sent them off, so here they are:

Everything all together:

Embroidery--it was actually my first try at free form and only the third time I've embroidered!

Striped mugs:

Felt picture frame wall hanging--it was so hard to let this one go!

I can't wait to get mine! (:

38  Corduroy journal in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by fadeawaydream on: July 15, 2005 09:21:39 PM
My first real book! I was inspired by the sewn journal tutorial to make my own with corduroy, but I didn't feel like battling with my sewing machine, so I used glue instead, and I'm SO happy for it. I know that my sewn lines would have been crooked, so the clean look glue gave me made me rather happy. (: All comments are appreciated. I think I might attempt to sell some of these--do you think they'd sell? If so, how much?

8.5in x 5.5in x 1in -- It looks black, but it's a hunter green.

200 sheets of acid-free textured paper in blue, green, ivory, grey, and tan

With a bookmark!

EDIT: I made another journal last night. (: This one is a peach corduroy with a light purple bunny cut-out. It is also coptic bound with about 120 pages of acid free parchment paper in natural, gold, and tan. Same size as the dino book, but I used a thicker cardboard for the covers and spine. It also has a beaded bookmark and wrap around button&ribbon closure. Enjoy!

And may I say, I adore this book! I saw it somewhere and fell madly in love with it. (:  I would definitely like to see more!

I took pictures before I sent my package off to captain_obvious, so here are some of them until she gets to add her own. (:

Some action shots would be great!
