431  Re: Ongoing ATC Swap - February 2012's GALLERY! in The Swap Gallery by jillybeans on: February 29, 2012 10:40:53 AM
Oh ZombieLili!  I love those cards you made!  So pretty!

That little owl is so cute!

Gozer, that firefly in a jar ATC is so pretty!  You did such a great job on that!

Also, I recently received the final ATC in my Harry Potter series, and I thought I would share my newly acquired finished collection with you all!

Now I just gotta figure out how I want to display them!

lovely socks, Kookaloo!  I'm so envious of those people who can make socks!  It seems so complex to me in my head!  

Thanks ladies for making me feel so welcome!  Tonight is DH's late night at work, and I am on kid duty and have to make dinner.  I'll post my list (and I have a question) after they are in bed!

I feel all warm and fuzzy inside!  Grin Kiss

Ooo yes, come and join us, Miss Barbara!  This is a really fast paced and super fun group of people!  Everyone is so awesome and supportive!  Its a great place to see what everyone is up to and share your own progress!  Plus, the wonderful alwaysinmyroom does prizes each month to keep you motivated to try new things!  Can you believe that?!  She is so freakin' awesome!

I got a bunch done for one of my IYP20 Swap partners, and also stenciled my husband and his twin brother each a shirt.  My hubby has been bugging me and teasing me that I'm always making other people shirts and not him.  This is complete untruth, because half of the shirts he owns are ones that I've stenciled.  Anyhow, the one he currently wanted was such a super easy one, that I just broke down and made it for him.  I took a picture of it on my phone and sent it to him (he was at a church rehearsal) and showed his twin brother and then he wanted one, too.  I just happened to have a brand new light grey shirt in his size laying around so I whipped one up for him right then, too.  Here is a crappy phone picture of it (currently all that I have so far).  I didn't have a chance to take a picture of the other one because he already took it, before the paint was even dry.  I will have to get a picture of two of them wearing them together.  I believe they will both be wearing them next Sunday at church.  Silly boys.

I used a random font that I had downloaded a while back.  I don't remember the name of it right now, but if anyone is interested, I will look it up.

Oh, and I tried a new technique for my ATCs, shaving cream marbling!  Its where you take shaving cream and spray it unevenly into a flat dish, put some drops of food coloring onto the shaving cream, use a knife or whatever to swirl it around.  Dip/lay cards in shaving cream and pull out and let sit for like 5 minutes.  Wipe off the shaving cream and BAM, lovely ATC bases!  They were super fun to make.  Here's another crappy phone picture.

*Everyone is welcome and encouraged to join this swap!  Sign-ups are open all month--YAY!  PM me the above questionnaire to get started, and please wait to be accepted into the swap before making any claims.  Please make sure you are not late or flakey in any of your other swaps.* This is a super-uber-amazingly-stupendous swap, So Have Fun!  


Claims are made throughout the month.  You have two weeks from the time you make a claim to send that claim.

You can make as many (or as few, as little as 1) claims as you want throughout the month as long as you never go over your allowed amount of outstanding claims. (An outstanding claim is a card that has not been received; when that card is received your number of outstanding claims goes down leaving you open to bring it back up to 7 or 10.)

Posting pictures of received ATCs is required for this swap.


1. Claims are made using the following procedure:

Person A (the swap organizer) will begin the swap by posting a list of themes in this swap thread.
Person B will choose a theme from one of A's themes and make a claim by posting his/her own list (see below for formatting of post).
Person C will make a claim on one of B's themes and post his/her own list.
Person D will make a claim on one of C's themes and post his/her own list etc...
This continues through the end of the month, when the swap organizer makes the final claim and closes out the claiming part of the swap.

2. How many claims can be made by each individual:

The number of claims each person is allowed depends on the following criteria:
*Friends of Craftster: 10 claims
*Those who aren't Friends of Craftster: 7 claims
*First time swappers (whether Friends of Craftster or not): 1 claim.  Once the initial claim has been sent, and its new owner has reported it received, the first time swapper is free to make more claims, either 7 or 10 dependent on being an FOC or not.

3. How to make a claim:

A claim post should include the following information:
1. The theme you are choosing and who youre sending it to.
2. Statistical info about your current swap claims status:
Claims = Claims currently outstanding (ie., how many not yet received by their new owners.) (This number goes down each time a claim is received, and up each time you make a claim.)
Sent = anything currently in the mail.
Received = the cards received by the people you've sent them to.
3. Your location.
4. Your personal preferences.
5. Your list of themes


I claim GenericFabulosaSwapper for heffalumps/weasels ATC.  

3 claims, 2 sent, 1 received

I live in Massachusetts, USA.  I would prefer not to receive anything violent, political, or religious.  

My themes are:
1)   sneezing
2)   purple people eaters
3)   wandering men of grief
4)   jumping jehosophats
5)   birds in hats


1. Send a personal message to the person you have claimed and request their address
2. You have 2 weeks to complete each card, and have it in the mail to its new owner.  

1. Please PM the organizer when you send or receive a card.  (It's also good to notify the person you received from or are sending to.)  March ATC Swap--Sent[/i] or March ATC Swap--Received (or some variant of that, lol)
3.  Be sure and include (1) the "send by" date, as well as (2) the theme and (3)who sent it to whom(4), in each email to the ATC swap organizer, when you're referring to sent or received ATCs.  (That's four juicy pieces of important information that make my life as a swap organizer OH so easy!) Easy as pie!

For example, you could use this format:
I sent some ATCs today!  

Send by 12/16:
MeCraftsterMemberBloop ---> YowzaSwapper = fantasmic theme

Send by 12/17:
MeCraftsterMemberBloop ---> WowwieSwapper = stupendous theme
MeCraftsterMemberBloop --->WooHooYeeHawSwapper 07 = yet another fascinating theme


This lets the organizer easily access the swap info, so it can be updated.  

It is OH so important to post pictures of the amazing cards you receive!  This is the best way in the world to let it be known how special it is that you've received a wonderful treasure of someone else's creativity!  

Please post pictures/scans of your received cards in the gallery (or make arrangements with your partner to do so).

Positive feedback will be given when all of the cards you sent have been received.   Good communication is always cool!  And be sure and post those pictures in the gallery!

If you have any questions please post them in the discussion thread or PM the organizer, jillybeans, or co-organizer, gozer.  This thread is specifically for claims only.

I also received from Mountains and Clouds, and as always, she does not disappoint!

TADA!  The one on the left says "Cooking up a storm!  WHEEEE!" which is exactly my sentiment!  My family has a hard time reining me in when I'm suppose to bring food.  BRING ALL THE FOOD!!!!  Its so bright and colorful!  Yay!  And the other is her favorite swimming spot, which others mentioned.  ^_^ 

And action shots, because I love pictures!

Thanks Mountains and Clouds!  I love 'em!  Now I have to decided which to use first!

Yet another altered Sherlock Holmes image.  Its quite a surprise to find a zombie in your house!

And dewshinesdopp asked me to post this one for her for Artist's Choice (I chose her Star Wars theme, though):

440  Chewie, the Wookiee Cookie w/ a function! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by jillybeans on: February 16, 2012 05:42:41 PM
Hiya everyone!  I participated in the One Smallish Stuffie w/ a Function swap, and this is one of the stuffies I sent my swap partner, goldfishpollywog.

Presenting: Chewie the Wookiee Cookie MP3 holder (with detachable lanyard and Stormtropper Charm)! 

My husband found an awesome picture by Philip Tseng that had a cup and cookie as Han Solo and Chewbacca that were pretty freaking awesome.  Once I saw them, I knew I had to make that cookie for my partner!  The image he found is here: http://www.podpocalypse.com/2010/12/02/han-solo-cup-chewbacca-the-cookie/

and more of Philip Tseng's awesome work is here: http://minicubby.com/indexhibit/index.php?/illustrations/
His style is so quirky and fun!  I absolutely love everything on there!  <3

Back to the cookie!

Here is the front and back of the cookie.  He is made of fleece and has black safety eyes and nose.  His chocolate chips are also fleece, and his mouth and shoulder harness thingie (*gasp!*) is made out of black and white felt.  He has a pouch inside of him that holds the MP3 player.  The back is plain because I'm lazy, but it shows how the pouch stays closed, with velvet ribbon and a button.

The MP3 player slides in like so!

Here is upclose shot of the Stormtropper charm.  I did it on shrinky dink!  Weee!  And here is the cookie with his description card.  Its too small to read here, but it says:  "Hi!  Meet Chewie, your Wookie Cookie!  Wookie Cookies are not only sweet and delicious, but also a great place to store your mp3 player!  His gooey inside will cushion it safely."  The lanyard is so that she can wear the wookie cookie around her neck while she listens to her music.

Thanks for looking!
