15293  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Day of the dead shrine/craft swap gallery! on: August 01, 2005 03:05:28 PM
I got a totally incredible package from rocknroll today, and at the risk of making you all jealous, I'm posting pictures now! Here is the wonderful shrine that she made. I love all the glitter designs, and really love that hot pink felt puffy skull! So well made! It has glitter-decorated lucite doors on hinges that open and close. The sun is made out of a painted bottle cap, with glittery rays. Look how great the shrine looks in its new hanging spot! It's right where I can see it when I am on my computer. The colors go so well in this room!




In this closeup, you can see the skeleton-y representations of me, my husband, and my two daughters. There is even a little skeleton dog in the left corner. That would be my dog, Nikki. She looks a lot like that, only not quite as thin.



rocknroll also sent some Loteria suncatchers (so cool). Here are some of them:



And here is one in action (try not to notice the dirty window) I'm planning on hanging these all in the window near the shrine, maybe after I pull out the Windex!



And if all that isn't enough, I had told rocknroll that some of my hobbies included reading and drinking wine, so she sent me a laminated Frida bookmark, and a really neat coaster for those drink glasses! What more could I ask for? I can enjoy using both of these at the same time!



This package seriously made my day. Thank you so much, rocknroll. I love everything you made, and I really appreciate all the time and effort that went into everything. You are a great swap partner, both talented and thoughtful!

Yeah, rocknroll, you listed your favorite colors as black, white, teal, coral, and off white. I was originally going to paint the shrine, but I really liked the way the rice paper looked with the bark in it showing like that. When I saw your favorite colors, I thought I'd just leave it! At first I thought I'd do it all white on white, but then I found that illlustration with that cat in it, and I knew you had a kitty at home. The illustration was too good to pass on.

Anyway, the whole thing just sort of changed and morphed along as I was doing it. It was really fun to make. I hope its whiteness doesn't hang you up too much!

I guess I should have included extra sticks for the cat!!  Grin

rocknroll, it was nice to see that everything made it OK. Thanks for your kind words. The dragonfly charm was attached to the apex of the roof, with the "believe" charm hanging down. I hate that it fell off, but it should be easy to re-attach if you like it up there!

Looking forward to Monday when your package arrives. I'll be sure to post when I get it!
15296  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Re: anyone STAMP walls before? on: July 27, 2005 10:43:32 AM
I have stamped before, and I think you will be happy with the outcome. Here are my tips... if you are concerned in any way about color, paint a posterboard with your wall color and try your stamp color on top to see how it looks. If you are concerned about placement, stamp lots of individual pieces of paper with the design, and tape them where you think you might want to place them. Test your stamp out before you put it on the wall to get an idea of how much paint you need to apply for your desired effect, and always do your first stamp in the least obvious place you can (behind a door, in a corner, or behind a large piece of furniture.)

That should do it. It's really easy and fun.

Happy stamping!

Apparently XOcrazy4uXO is going to organize the next swap, and will be starting sign-ups Monday. You can read all about it in the "suggestions for swaps" boards (try putting "ziplock doodad" in the Search box). I would link you over myself, but I am seriously computer illiterate, and my daughter's at camp!

Check the boards Monday for Round 2; it looks like someone has already got you covered!

I got the greatest package from iheartsquares today!! It all came in a zippered bag that she made with great blue and green "earth" fabric and a chunky white zipper. Inside was the coolest stuff: beads, buttons, lots of little plastic playthings (I love those), shoelaces, swizzle sticks (that long-necked giraffe rocks), some fruity pop beads, several chains...there was way too much to list! iheartsquares, you are the best swap partner! Thank you so much!! I am currently making earrings, and I will be using some of those beads today. I have a plan for lots of the plastic items...if it ever actually comes to fruition, I will be sure to let you know.

Thanks again!
