You might try satin rat tail cord (found in the trims area of a fabric store) in place of the wires. To stiffen them you could use Modge Podge, Fabric Stiffener, or just dilute a clear-drying glue with water. You can often find plastic watch faces in craft shops or print a watch face off the internet and glue it to a heavier backing paper like chipboard, then coat it with Modge Podge, resin, or any clear-drying glue.

Anyone who's ever swapped with Onyxnox knows just how very talented she is. We've been paper craft partners several times, but for the IYP we decided to show off some of our other skills. Wow! She blew me away! AGAIN!!! Since only Americans were allowed in the Old-Fashioned Paper & Ephemera Swap, we decided to send each other some papercrafting goodies, too.
First up some papercraft tools and supplies: pipettes for paint techniques, waterbrushes, a mister, forceps for pulling needles when sewing or for holding pesky little things, and an embossing folder that I didn't have.

Then four dies from a company that's new to me. Definitely need to check out their site.

Four small storage containers that are perfect for all the little embellishments that crafters love, six rolls of washi tape (I love the silver and the stars and already have plans for them!!!), three rolls of paper tape (shared two with crafty friends), tiny wooden buttons, adorable metal embellishments, and varigated ribbon in my favorite colors.

Papers and more papers: kanji, music, old BHG mag pages, handmade papers, gold and silver printed papers, and origami papers. It's a paper lovers best gift ever.

Now for the things Onyxnox crafted. A pendant perfect to wear tomorrow on St. Patrick's Day. See the tiny 4-leaf clover in the eye of the washer?

A set of 8 notecards that are so perfect that I would have been delighted to receive only them. Also the gorgeous butterfly with flourishes note she sent was amazing.

But then she also sent the chickadee stamps she carved to make the cards! Astonishingly detailed and beautiful. I absolutely LOVE these stamps!

Not one, but two pairs of fingerless mitts! Yeah!!!!! I know they don't look like they would both fit the same hands well but because of the yarn and cable pattern that Onyxnox used they each fit perfectly! My hands are going to love you, Onyxnox!

See how well the blue fit. My hands are wide so getting mitts that fit without being too snug is a real pleasure.

The black mitts are a little longer than the blue, so they'll be perfect when I need even more warmth!

A slouchy hat and chunky cowl with even more cables! Have you picked up on the fact that Onyxnox and I both like cables? The cowl is folded over rather than scrunched down in this shot because I was trying to show at least some of the cables. It's also tall enough to be used as a hood/scarf.


Thank you so much for being my dance partner and did I remember to say how much I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE those stamps and cards? Grin

It will be great to see Kookaloo again! She's one of several craftsters who have been MIA. Hope her dh's health has continued to improve.

Received a fantabulous package today from Onyxnox. I have been royally spoiled! Will post pictures later this weekend, but be prepared to drool!

I did a medium box swap with both Sonjaboo and Blupaisan and 'Boy!" Did I ever rake in the loot!
First up, the goodies from sonjaboo.
Buttons and embellishments. The clear scrapbook may be the most fun, since I attended a workshop last year from that company and have tons of ideas and techniques I can use on it.

The monuments will be great on Halloween cards, spooky but not scary (I don't like scary at all; Psycho was my undoing as a kid)

Awesome collection of foreign language pages

6 rolls of washi tape! I've already turned the blue bird into a plant poke and have plans for the Graphic 45 embellishments

Flash cards and game pieces

Patterns and Asian inspired envelopes (for Chinese New Year's good luck gifts?)

Scrapbook papers and pastel vellum tags

More unique and textured papers

Mixed media painted papers

And the all-time best gift of all, an original copy of the Pillsbury flour cookie booklet that my mother used frequently while I was a kid. I've even won a first place at our county fair with one of the recipes! When Mom died, my sister kept Mom's copy, so I'm absolutely delighted to have my own copy now.


Then all of these goodies came from blupaisan. I especially like the black and white graphic prints in this shot.

The magnetic photo sleeves are already on my refrigerator holding family photos (rather than that cute little boy) and I've been thinking about trying Zen coloring pages, so guess this set is the impetus I needed

Oops! Sorry this is upside down. Think I'll use the bottom pattern as it was intended and make sundresses for some of my great-great nieces.

I've already turned some of the double-sided papers into medallions for card embellishments

The stars are going to be used to make Veterans' Day cards and I have several ideas for the Scrabble tiles

Vintage letters from 1938. The neatest thing about them is that the young girl who wrote them was a member of the Aldridge family as is my mother-in-law.

Maps - including one of France that shows the village from which my great-grand parents came to the US

Birch bark, I've already promised to share some of it with a friend who's into making mixed media art works

Cards plus handmade butterfly envelopes that are gorgeous!

Sheet music, including the Tarantella, a dance from my Italian grandfather's homeland


Thank you both so much!

Camera problem resolved. Then today I lost ALL computer access, first a frozen screen, then a blank screen, then my computer wouldn't even come on. Luckily dd#1's boyfriend is a computer nerd and got everything cleared up. Should have photos posted sometime tomorrow.

The medallions are one of many of the Spellbinders line of Fold and Tuck dies. The blue flower (upside down in the box) is also a Spellbinders die, but Queen & Co does a very similar design in felt, already cut so all you have to do is roll and glue. I love dimensional elements so hoped you and Blupaisin would too.

Happy belated birthday, AIMR!

Onyxnox, you know I'll adore anything you send!!! Waiting for something to dry; hate the wait. Crafting like crazy to finish everything, then my church session scheduled a called meeting for after services tomorrow. Aargh! Wouldn't be so bad except it will probably drag on and on and as an elder I have to be there. I need that time, folks! Shame on me for thinking a discussion about the Fellowship Hall roof bid could be delayed two weeks until our regularly scheduled meeting.   Undecided

Glad to help, blu. Am having problems with my wireless mouse and my computer not being on speaking terms today, so it may be a day or two before I can post the photos of my goodies from you and Sonjaboo. I've already used the wooden blue bird that Sonjaboo sent and have promised to share some of the birch bark from you with a friend who's into mixed media. I think she's as excited about it as I was.

Worked as a volunteer at our community soup kitchen yesterday, so all I got done was to cut out a few doll outfits. Hope to do more today.
