I'm so sorry for not being able to post sooner. Allow me to explain. No wait, there's no time. Let me sum up. Wink

I'm currently leeching internet off my roommate. She's fine with it but because I'm leeching, my internet connection isn't the most stable thing in the world. Therefore when it rains, I pretty much lose my connection completely and it's been raining pretty consecutively for the last week and a half. I finally have a connection and am taking my chance because it's supposed to rain the rest of the week and this weekend too.

Anyway, the amazing chughes225 was my partner and I love everything she gave me. She created a beautiful package. Everything is a work of art.

The first, and the best of course? My Westley pillow!

Seriously? How beautiful is this pillow? I love it so much. And it's very cuddly!

She also sent me an exquisite box with a silhouette of Buttercup and Westley burned into it. Inside were a pair of earrings and a breathtaking bracelet and a Dread Pirate Roberts mash bracelet. Awesome! She also sent me several bookmarks complete with quotes, a jar of Miracle Max Mostly Dead Pills, an incredibly awesome journal with several extra notepads and and an awesome little notecard. Here are some more pics.

This package is easily one of my most favorites. Thank you so much for the beautiful package and thank you so much for being my partner.

Thank you Whistley. This was a great swap and I'm so glad that I was able to take part. I'm sorry for the delay in posting. I really hate the lack of direct internet but I have to deal with it for now.

YAY!!! I'm so happy it got there un-hindered Mod!

I received my third round package today, and let me tell you all, it was the highlight of my day!

ecstacia chose me for the third round and sent me a lovely necklace, with a dark fairy theme, and two handmade, fairy note cards!

I am so glad that you like it! I had a lot of fun trying to come up with faerie themed ideas for you. I really wanted to do a goth or dark faerie theme once I saw that you liked goth stuff so .... I couldn't resist Smiley

Round 2 - The most awesome supply package EVER from Scifunk:

Seriously? How awesome is that package? I CANNOT wait to use all the new jewelry supplies and the scrapbooking stuffs! And sprinkles? OMG. I actually run the fuckyeahsprinkles blog on Tumblr so you can imagine my excitement for more sprinkles! I truly love this package. This is amazing. Thank you so much!

Round 3 - Deathly Hallows cloth from seasidemuses:

OH MY GOD! Love it so much! I definitely have ideas for these squares, and this is just completely awesome! Thank you s much! I've been wanting to make a few Deathly Hallows items to prepare for the release of DH Part II and these are perfect!

I apologize for the delay on posting this. Things have been kind of hectic here. Anyway, I received the most wonderful swap from PurplePaisley for Round 1! An absolutely beautiful, handmade Easter tablerunner! The best part is that it's doublesided. I truly love this! Thank you so much PurplePaisley!

I especially love the jelly beans and the bunnies. And there is so much purple, which is my favorite color <3 I just can't get over how gorgeous this is. I can't wait to display it!

5  Color Match Help Needed in Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions by ecstasia on: June 09, 2010 11:22:04 AM

I am in need of advice. I recently moved to the east coast in a friend's house and was given a small room to call my own. I love my room but it is small and therefore decorating has been difficult for me. Also, my walls are a light violet color (which I looooove) but I am having problems deciding what colors to use in my room because of it. I was thinking a darker purple color and teal would be a nice combination but I'm trying to figure out if that would look well with the walls. When I attempt to catch the color of the walls, it doesn't work well but this picture (found on google) is very similar to the color of my walls if not the same color.

Also, what is now my room used to be a small office. I am having trouble making an attractive room with the space I have. Does anyone know of any good sites that could show me pictures of pretty bedrooms in small spaces? Or if you have any advice on how to work with a small bedroom that would be great too. I have a twin size bed and a dresser among other pieces of furniture and I'm thinking of turning the dresser around (it is currently flush with the wall and using the back of it as a headboard but the problem there is putting it in a place where I could still access the dresser. Tis confusing.

I'm so sorry for being so late! Things have been hectic here. My fiance and I have been passing colds back and forth, and work is just crazy. Anyway, I am finally posting the simply amazing chocolate swap that I received from night_owl!

Closer up picture

Farther away picture

I received a huge selection of wonderful, yummy goodies from night_owl! Included is a huge jar of cookie mix, a bag of Riesen chocolates (which I absolutely adore!), a massive bar of Symphony (milk chocolate, almond and toffee) which my fiance attacked with me lol, a super soft milk chocolate covered caramel lollipop, a giant egg truffle that I haven't eaten yet (I think it has mint as well), a bar of super rich, melt in mouth chcolate called Chocolate con Leche (milk chocolate), a fabulous bracelet made with chocolately colored beads (I get so many compliments when I wear this! It's fabulous and I adore it!), a beautifully made chocolate brown and white fabric wallet that I use for special (or at least dressier) occassions, and a sample box of chocolate that has the most unusual chocolates inside. Like chocolate mole which is spicy and lavender chocolate and more. So yummy! I love everything that I received! night_owl has been a FABULOUS partner!

I received my swap from you! I can't post pics since I'm at work but I love what you sent and please don't feel bad at all! I'm more than happy with it all =) I actually received it Monday after work (which was a wonderful surprise!) but I spent my weekend (Tues and Weds) in a Sims 2 induced coma lol.

Yamwam sent me loads of Hershey's milk chocolate, a truffle from another country (I'm doing this off the top of my head, can't recall if it was Belguim or Brazil. Probably Belguim), two recipes that I cannot wait to try, and some absolutely adorable chocolate inspired magnets which I love! And she made this really neat purple and gold origami chocolate box to put the candies in =) There was also another bar of chocolate but I can't recall what it is at this time. Sorry! But I'll be posting pics tonight and then pigging out on the chocolate lol

Here's the picture as promised!

I forgot to mention the mini calendar which is going back to work with me tomorrow. It's a daily calendar and each day is a new fact or quote about chocolate! Yumm! 365 days of chocolate!

Thank you again =)

I'm so sorry I haven't posted pics. I've been really sick on and off for the last couple months and this month I was hit bad. It turns out that I have a viral infection which has caused a terrible cough and the loss of my voice. I sound like a foghorn.

Anyway, here is the wonderful package that snacker made for me!

As you can see, she gave me some wonderful things! Here's a rundown:
01) A hello kitty wrapped package to be opened on christmas - package has a snowflake ornament/tag on it
02) A santa pez dispenser which has grape pez (my favorite!)
03) A beautiful, light, purple scarf. Perfect for when the weather is cold but not freezing
04) Yummy chocolate! There's more but my fiance ate some and I froze the rest.
05) And the piece de la resistance - a wonderfully stocking! I had a beautiful crocheted stocking when I was a kid and I told snacker all about it and she made me this stocking which is as beautiful as my old one (if not more so!). I don't know if you can see the details but it has little icicle, present and snowflake charms on it!

I love everything so much! Thank you again snacker =)

As promised (I know it's late sorry!) here is a picture of the Harry Potter-esque scarf that gaudiknight made for me! It's modeled after the scarves in Prisoner of Azkaban and in my favorite colors (black and purple)

Please ignore the crappiness that is me in the picture and only concentrate on the scarf. It's late, I haven't slept yet and I'm wearing a shirt that three sizes too big lol.

10  Re: New spice, umm rack, err holders, um spice container solution??? in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by ecstasia on: April 18, 2005 04:33:07 PM
whoa! i hadn't seen that before (even though i do <3 wishingfish). anyhow, my spice rack looks very similar to those, and it has 10 canisters. i am thinking of putting another row right below the first one... but i'm not sure if i will yet. i might use them for something else. i really like the way these look in my kitchen! (i hope these photos aren't too small- i just used the thumbnails.)

on the wall in my kitchen:

and a closeup:

I love the original idea of the spice holders. I have been needing a spice rack forever, but the problem is that I'm such a klutz that knowing me, I'd stumble into the fridge and knock them all off. (Did that once with my magnets and still can't find three of them). But the spice rack with the containers is a great idea as well! And that is something that I wouldn't knock over as easily. Andrenna, do you have a tutorial for the rack you made? Or would you be able to explain it? That would be great to hang in our kitchen!
