I'm glad you like it, Amazing_784- that was my first attempt at applique, hence the really super heavy seam on the non-tree side! And I apologize that the interior pockets might not be so, er, useful. I should have put pleats in! Also, the brown bracelets were just leftover from a big bunch I pulled apart for their stretchy cord.

Okay, here's my haul! (excuse the crappy photography- the weather shifted on me.)

First up, a cute black and white box

Which contained extra jewels

From the making of another latching wood box (love the sparkles and the jewels!)

Detail shot!

The inside is lined with corduroy, so I can keep jewelry in there without it sliding around

Next is a cute little rag bag

And a really pretty applique/patch flower

(taking a breath)

And 2 bandanna headscarves in some of my favorite colors

And finally, a fantastic purse!

(other side) I didn't get a great shot of it, but there's really cute, wavy stitching around the opening. I love the choices of fabrics and colors!

Inside- 6 very usable pockets!

I love that we both made bandanna purses!

I had such a good time with this swap. Thanks for being a great partner, Amazing_784, and thanks for being a great organizer, Pops!

Wow. I don't know what to say, except I feel very lucky!

Check this out:

First up, this amazing tote bag/purse! The size is perfect for carrying my netbook and notebooks, or I might start using it to carry my lunch to work. Hell, I think I'll just toss out my old purse altogether! It has an outside pocket (with the amazing embroidery) and a good-sized one inside too.

Closer-up of the embroidery. It's absolutely perfect! I'm so impressed!

Oh, I just noticed that I cut off his little bum in the photo!

Inside the purse were these coasters decoupaged with Season 8 Buffy comics! Excuse my deck-that-really-badly-needs-refinishing in the background...

(My favorite- I'm  a bit behind on the comics because I got mad at Dark Horse Comics for not hiring me after a really great interview. Dicks. But is anyone else weirded out that Xander and Dawn are dating? Or, were as of the last one I read? It's just... icky.)

And last but CERTAINLY not least:


(It's pale blue in person)

Armaine also included a little note with these drawings on the front. I love tiny details like that!

Armaine, you're amazing. Thank you sooooo much!

Look what I found in my mailbox this evening:

Oh my goodness, ParisGirl! Everything is beautiful!

First up, a necklace with a beautiful beeswax pendant with an Alice drawing from a 1904 copy of the book (wow!) and a note on a playing card collage that I had to include because I love it...

And a closer shot of the pendant- it looks a little cloudy but it's not in person. I totally want to play with beeswax now. (and pardon the fabric scrap mess below it- got another project going)

Next up- my first shrine!

(my husband's giving devil-horns in the background. He was a little exciteable- he is more into this than I would have imagined. Also he's been drinking...)

Flashed-out pic of the interior of the shrine. I love how it has a bit of a 3-d look. It's awesome.

A sweet bag o' offerings for the shrine!

Included are:
Drink me!

A key (love love love love love this!)

Mushroom charm

Crown charm

And a little piece of ParisGirl's heart, an Eiffel Tower charm!

Offerings in place:

But wait, there's more!

Fantastic glass pebble magnets- I totally had to give up getting a good photo of these. I can't fight the glare! But they're all older illustrations that look hand-colored. My favorite one is the Jabberwock.

An amazing antiqued iron crown wall hook!

 ParisGirl suggested it could be for keys, but I think it will be hung in my bedroom for my robe. I'm also thinking this calls for a new robe. Maybe red velvet with some fake fur trim?

And last but not least, an amazing Alice box that will shortly be filled with my shiniest jewelry!

My husband's totally into it... and into me cleaning up my jewelry!

Inside top:

Inside the base:

I love these blocks inside.

There was one tiny bit of shipping damage- one (well, one part of one) of the feet on the box seems to have disappeared. I should be able to fix it though. ParisGirl, you're the best. Thank you so much for making this the best first swap ever!

4  Photo frame- my first posted project! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by TeriLynn on: July 04, 2005 02:51:13 PM
So I've been around on the site for a while now, but I never bothered to post any of my own projects yet. This is my first. I'm stumbling though the photo-hosting thing for the first time, so I hope this works...
I made this frame for my friend's birthday (only 4 days late! oops.) and I am so pleased with the outcome. I tend to slap things together without having much of a plan. I had a 12x14 or so frame that I bought on clearance at Michael's for $5, and an old sign from my office that was made of corrugated plastic, so I cut the center of the sign out & trimmed off the bottom so it fit over the frame, and glued it onto the original frame. Then I sort of fashioned a shelf with the leftovers and glued that on too. Then I painted a few pieces of pink & red construction paper with different mixes of gold & silver paint and tore them into small squares and decoupaged them all over. I ran out of squares, so the bottom, sides and front of the shelf are black painted construction paper. Because it wasn't taking NEARLY enough time, I took some gold rattail cord (also on sale at Michael's- only $1 for 10 yards, which I used most of.) and tried to do like a suspension bridge thing. I drilled holes through the plastic with my trusty Dremel and fought with the cord to thread through them. I used more of the gold-painted construction paper to cover where I attached the cords on the side with hot glue-that's why it looks so lumpy. If I did it again, I'd prolly create a false wall to cover that. Then I just covered the unfinished edges in more cord with hot glue. But the top looked too plain, so I took some wooden stars, drilled holes in them and glued 3 layers of sand onto them (I knew that bag of sand from my vacation would be useful) and mod-podged over them to somewhat seal them, and drilled more holes in the frame & attached them to the top. I used clear photo corners and 5 strips of photo-booth pictures my friend & I took (it's sort of an obsession- we like to bring props & we spend hours in the booth.) for the frame contents so she can switch them out if she wants. It hangs from the original frame's hardware and it's still pretty lightweight. I forgot to seal the whole thing, so when it's humid, it's still a little tacky from the mod podge but overall I am very pleased. She damn well better like it, or I'll take it back!
The little shelf at the bottom, and rattail cord to suspend the shelf, tho that's pretty much just decorative. I don't know that the shelf would hold more than maybe a set of keys!
this shows the "suspension system" a little better.
Sand Stars!
Any feedback is welcomed, and thanks for looking!

(wow- sorry this is so long!)
