Well, I get to start this gallery out with a bang! I received from MissingWillow today - I absolutely LOVE everything! I also have major swap anxiety now since her sewing and gardening abilities are clearly superior to mine!!

First, these unbelievable prayer flags/garden sign - combines two things I've wanted for my yard forever, and I just adore them! It's a little hard to read with the lighting, but it says "Eat the yard." I'm going to hang it over my garden!

She made me this precious little chandelier/sun-catcher for a fairy garden. I can't wait to "hang" it! Smiley

Finally, she sent me some seeds from her award-winning heirloom tomatoes and some super-hot crushed red pepper flakes from her farm. I'm going to start the tomatoes today! I'm a little scared to try the pepper flakes based on her description, but I love spicy food, so I'm sure they'll be a hit.

Thanks for the amazing package, MissingWillow! Smiley

My goodness, I'm getting spoiled this week! :-D

These goodies just arrived from underthemountain. I adore the anklets...she sent three that I can "mix and match," but I put them all on at once!

She also sent these wonderful little Lego bobby pins. I don't think she knew, but I'm a HUGE Lego fan. These are perfect for me!!

Thank you so much, underthemountain!

I received these wonderful plant markers from rscowtown today! Smiley

I was hoping she'd send a few, but you can see she went way above and beyond!! And they're even double-sided! Thank you so much, rscowtown!

Glad you like it, adubyah! Smiley

I received from thatoneguy today...I love it! It's long enough to wear as an anklet, so that's exactly what I did. He also included this lovely original artwork.

7  Bonnaroo Festival Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by juliel85 on: May 13, 2015 01:20:30 PM
I have so many wonderful memories from music festivals. My first-ever concert when I was 13 was Summerfest in Milwaukee; since then I've gone to at least two festivals every summer, including Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Pitchfork, and many more.

I had this shirt from Bonnaroo 2008 - I really like it, but it's one of those tiny stretchy girly shirts that fits for like 5 minutes when you're the skinniest you'll ever be. Which I no longer am. But, this Bonnaroo was the first festival I ever went to with my husband, so I knew it had to be re-purposed.

I've been meaning to make a festival bag for awhile - something super lightweight and comfy that could travel with me to all the music festivals and hold the essentials. I have a t-shirt, I need a bag...t-shirt bag!

The finished product!

Shirt, pre-bag:

To test it, I filled it a few festival essentials: my raincoat, sunscreen, and a granola bar. Getting an action shot was a little tricky, sorry for the poor quality:

I also liked the idea of trying to incorporate a barcode, so I created this little tag with a QR code that takes you to a web site with festival safety tips. I'm also going to make some festival-specific ones - one with a map of the campground, for example, or the show lineup:

Thanks for looking! Smiley

That hoop is awesome! I love the contrasting fabrics, what a creative idea!

I received this wonderful sleeve for my Macbook from anna.wahnsinn!! It's so perfect - the fabric exactly my style, and it fits my laptop just right.

Thank you Anna!!! :-D

9  Wood-burned bamboo spoons in Completed Projects by juliel85 on: May 07, 2015 08:45:24 AM
I just wanted to share these bamboo spoons I recently made! I made these for the "Common Ground Rnd 3" swap. I'm just starting to get into wood burning, but I'm pretty pleased with how they turned out!

Thanks for looking. Smiley

That little needle book is perfect!

Manja has received...since the swap is wrapping up, I'm going to go ahead and post pics of what I sent (hope that's OK, Manja!).

We both love to cook, so I made her some wood-burned spoons.

I also sent her some colorful paperclip bookmarks, since we both love reading.

And some antique postcards, since we both like reading messages people wrote to each other long ago.

I hope you like everything, Manja!
