1  Re: MINI 12 Days Of Christmas Swap 2013 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by jmiller614 on: November 30, 2013 05:53:20 PM
Received! My partner did a wonderful job of making things that actually fit in a decent size box. (Partner is Alexampersandra)

With cards for each date:

One gift said to refrigerate. Check. And one was not wrapped and said extras so I may have opened it!

Err...every time I try to post from my phone the same picture comes up. I promise to post pictures this week at work! I've gotten some amazing things.

Day 1) With 12 days til Christmas my partner gave to me...some candy that is very yummy.

This is so delicious! Christmas chocolate, vietnamese cinnamon, and sriracha chocolate. I have to be honest, I thought the sriracha was pretty gross, until I ate the whole thing and wanted more. AN amazingly delicious weird taste!

Day 2) With 11 days til Christmas my partner gave to me...clementine lip balm that is pretty tasty!

Um yes, tasty! Smells so good. I've always wanted to try making some so I am glad my partner did.

Day 3) With 10 days till Christmas my partner gave to me...a tin full of ATCs/inchies.

Great backgrounds!

Day 4) With 9 days till Christmas my partner gave to me...supplies to make some clay jewelry.

Pretty colors. Great choices. Will be doing this after the holidays!

Day 5) With 8 days till Christmas my partner gave to me...earrings that are dangly!

These might be my favorite earrings ever.

Day 6) With 7 days till Christmas my partner gave to me...a headband that's kinda stretchy.

Already worn this. I've always wanted to make one of these too.

Day 7) With 6 days till Christmas my partner gave to me...felt ornaments to hang on the tree.

I don't have a tree but these area hanging up randomly around the apartment!

Day Cool With 5 days till Christmas my partner gave to me...a necklace and matching earrings.

Okay, I don't recall my profile being so jewelry centric, but I AM LOVING it! This necklace is awesome. New favorite.

Day 9) With 4 days till Christmas my partner gave to me...lavender soaps to make me smell nice and clean.

I have yet to use these since I just opened them, but they do smell quite lovely!

Day 10) With 3 days till Christmas my partner gave to me...a set of holiday hemp jewelry.

Yes! More jewelry! ANd more of these neat little christmas bulb charms!

Day 11) With 2 days till Christmas my partner gave to me...a kit to help me make more jewelry

These beads are gorgeous!

Day 12) With 1 day till Christmas my partner gave to me...

Her first attempt at woodburning. Hooray!!!!!

Thank you so much! Super excited by all this jewelry!

I was "forced" to open a few days early due to changes in Christmas plans. Thank you purplepaisley!

The stocking is an absolutely amazing mermaid. Really creative! Filled with goodies of course. One of the hot cocoas and spoons is already gone.

And not only did the stocking really show her incredible sewing skills, but look what else was in it!:

An apron, and some holiday placemats (which are actually my first and only set of placemats so their will be winter holidays all year round).

Thank you!

From Kitty!

Another fabulous card for my calendar. I may have made sure to read the comics in my latest newspaper after receiving this. Cool idea to use them as a background. Thank you!

From jillybeans, for my calendar theme. Man this theme is getting long...I'm still amazed that people pull out something new for it though.

Stamps! I'm impressed jilly saves so many old stamps. Every now and then I need one for something and I have to wait until mail comes the next day. And even then they are usually boring stamps.

I have to admit, I was a bit annoyed because in jilly's note she wrote, "sorry I forgot to put a sleeve on it." I'm fine without the sleeve, but I walked around for a good half hour singing "I should of put a sleeve on it" to the tune of Beyonce's "should of put a ring on it." It was entertaining for the first few minutes until I couldn't get it out of my head and realized I didn't know any more words to the song. I hate when that happens.

Finally, my abandonning pictures!

I tried to take one or two each night on my runs. It gave me more incentive to go for the run and I thought it might be more covert. One was abandonned at the shuttle viewing. The others...


I walked around campus and found this awesome hook in the wall outside one of the building. Fancybutch had convenient ribbons to tie with.

I was only planning on abandonning one, but I walked by another building with labs. All the lights were on and people were working so I thought it might be a nice surprise if someone found something on the way home. This one was tough. People kept walking toward me so I would wander away and wander back. I pretended to talk on my cell phone. Pretended to look lost. I ended up placing it on a pedestal (in the front of the picture you can clearly see the ribbon).

The next night I headed to the Pasadena Playhouse. I thought this might be a good crowd (note bottom left of image).

Next night I headed to city hall. There are a lot of homeless who sleep here plus it is bustling during the day. I wanted to be a little more "covert" in hiding this time (inspired by the awesome first hiding place at the gas station for the swap gallery). Next to city hall there were a row of newspaper dispensers and the free apartment finder one. So I put it in there.

And then I was sort of sad to be out of things to abandon.

I hope we hear back from the finders. Fancybutch did include notes!

Sooo...this is not a great picture of the abandonned art. My other pictures actually show FancyButch's amazing little spaceship boxes in their abandonned home. But this one I have to post because I took it with my phone and not my camera (forgot my camera cord today).

I totally setup this abandonment for the shuttle in the background. The shuttle was being moved down the streets of Los Angeles to the science center and I thought what a great crowd to appreciate an alien painting. The man in black sort of in the center just picked up the box so I snapped a picture. Unfortunately you can't see the art because it was grabbed before I could walk away and turn around to take the picture.

Anyhow, of course I followed this man. He brought it back to show his family. Then I just kept walking by trying to play it cool. I didn't stick around and watch him with his family because I did not want to be creepy. I soooo hope he took it home!

Puamelia, those items are equally ridiculous and amazing! Haha. And Leap's art are fabulous too. I am totally rethinking what I sent. Can I take it back? Well next swap.

Here is what fancybutch sent!

Beautifully decorated boxes. This one has already been torn apart by me.

And a tiny alien portrait now hanging in my office. Smiley

I've already rescheduled my day tomorrow so that I can abandon!

9  Re: Covert Art Abandoner's Swap (SU Closed; MAIL BY 9/30/12). in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by jmiller614 on: September 14, 2012 09:24:23 AM
Four items done! The senders are inspiring to get moving.

As I was walking down the street the other day I saw this item from a distance. TOTALLY thought someone had abandonned a pretty bouquet or piece of art because I picked up on the colors. When I approached, it was definitely a cupcake wrapper with clown heads, trash that someone had left behind:

I wonder if this swap is influencing what I want to see... I swear it looked like art from far away! And without my glasses! The clowns could definitely be tiny flowers. I think.
