1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Star Wars swap on: March 10, 2012 02:25:00 PM
As long as send-outs are after mid-May then I am down.  Any earlier then that and i'll have to pass because of finals.  Either way, I can't wait to see what wonders come out of this swap!!!!

That sounds like fun!  OTT...one tiny thing?  Sorry, I'm new to this swapping stuff!  If so, the. April would be lovely as long as send outs are in May sometime because I have finals at the end of April. 

Thank you, Monnie31!  I hope your surgery was a roaring success and you are healing up marvelously!  Smiley

This would be a lot of fun and a real challenge to think of things to make since "arts and crafts" doesn't immediately come to mind when watching a show about catching serial killers.  Besides, (though Spock is my official first soul mate) Reid and I are destined to end up together!  Cheesy

I received an absolutely amazing package from CherryLime yesterday.  I cannot say enough about all of the wonderful things in that tiny package.  I really can't even say what is my favorite thing, it is all so awesome!  Honestly, I had forgotten a lot of the themes I put on my questionnaire, which made opening the box even more exciting!  

First of all, apologies for my terrible photography.  These photos won't do some of these things justice, so I hope you can use your imagination!  Cheesy

Yoda is my hero, and I got this awesome anklet!  I'm so glad I live in FL and it is in the 70s/80s already so I can show this off!

Spock is my soulmate (though he only feels that way every seven years or so!  I love you if you got that!  Cheesy )  and I can't wait to start jotting notes in this little pad!  Tongue

A necklace and matching earrings following the theme of "black and white romance", and as I love ribbon roses and pearls, this jewelry set is even more perfect for me then CherryLime may of intended!  She's so good!  Cheesy  Also, I love the "Tiffany & Co." box!

This fits the theme of "colorful, funky jewelry", and I think it is beautiful!  I love purple, and I like the iridescences.  Also, I've been on kind of an 80's kick lately, and I think the pendant sort of falls into that era!  

I was flabbergasted when I saw this bracelet.  I randomly inherited one of those larger wooden beads in a mixtures sent by my aunt years ago.  I've been looking for more of these beads because I thought they were so cute.  I got a wonderful bracelet and extra beads from CherryLime!  Isn't that such a cool coincidence?

I love this little pouch.  CherryLime embroidered an "ohm" on it for me, my favorite symbol and my favorite colors!  Can't figure out what I'm gonna put in it just yet, but it will definitely be put to use!  

Big Bang Theory!  I love this song, sing it all the time to my mom, and this ATC is now on display directly in the middle of my fridge!  Cheesy

And last but not least, this wonderful desk calendar and extra little sci-fi/ horror posters printed on cardstock for my use!  I think I'll turn some of them into little pendants for necklaces and earrings.  Isn't it cool!?  I'll have to figure out a way to change the month without damaging the pages.  

Didn't I get a wonderful package?  Thank you so much CherryLime!  I hope you love your box as much as I loved everything in mine!   Kiss

I received a wonderful package from dhfreak yesterday!  I'm so excited and I really appreciate her venture into jewelry making for me.  Without further ado:

Monroe Stuffie (Can't recall exactly the name of these little guys, pretty sure it starts with an "A"  Wink )  to start my collection of little plush guys from craft swaps!

A necklace drawing on Monroe's stain glass window as inspiration!  I asked for something with that window because I absolutely love it, and I applaud dhfreak's interpretation because I never would have thought of that!  Cheesy

An amazing blutbad drawing that is going to get a frame here shortly because it is absolutely awesome!

And my very favorite thing from the box because it is beautiful and simple! 

I'm not a great photographer, but the charms are a Cinderella's slipper and the Frog Prince, which are my two favorite fairy tales.  I just love this necklace for so many reason! 

Thank you so much dhfreak for a wonderful package, and also to amymarie78 for being such a wonderful partner to craft for.  This was only my second swap and my first round robin.  I was a little hesitant about being in a round robin group, but I think it worked out lovely!  Cheesy

I'll definitely have to go check out that etsy shop!  I just love these bracelets!  Cheesy

These are gorgeous!! (Yours too, Atsuko!). May I ask where you found the skull and rose beads?  I love them!

Everybody made such cool things!  And you shipped early!  I wish I was that good at managing my time Wink

I'm so excited for my partner to get my box, but still have a few things to finish up (ran out of thread...grrrr...)  Running to the store first thing in the morning and the box will definitely be in the mail tomorrow afternoon or Thursday morning!
