1  Re: SURPRISE Swap GALLERY-- Send by 9/10/12 in The Swap Gallery by missmelmarie on: September 12, 2012 04:18:57 PM
YAY! Pioneer9 received from moi. I will be posting the pictures now that the package safely arrived. Pioneer9 gave me an awesome opportunity to make a poppet! I never ever would have made one if I didn't have a partner that wanted one, and it was fun for sure. However, I did read up lots on them first and it said woven material and fabric=the devil. Wow... I couldn't agree more. To my misfortune I have to travel at least an hour and a half to hit a JoAnne's so I have to settle for a local place that has fabric coming and going and nothings for sure of what you'll be able to get. Annnyway... 

Pioneer9 said a recent obsession was Farscape. I did some research, got sucked into some episodes of it on Netflix, and determined I really like the look of Chiana, a streetsmart, and likeable I will add, character.

This HAD to be my poppet inspiration!!

The second item I included I wanted to combine things we have in common: 1) Cold Winters 2) Love of purple
So I made up some recycled sweater mittens, which are the best and warmest mittens out there!

Pioneer9, It was a blast crafting for you Cheesy

Today there was a surprise! From... drumroll... moxiepurple! Oh my, it was an absolutely delightful and gorgeous package, and I am so so happy  Grin

Here's my group shot:

Incredible, right?
Now my crochet skills are pretty novice, and so I am so excited over crochet goodies, this owl eye mask is swoon worthy, I love love it! I am god-awful at taking my own picture, nevermind when there's something over my face, so this was the best I could do.

and that gorgeous purple and grey little number you see? Only the most perfectly color combo-ed cowl/scarf on the planet. it's lacy-like and truly beautiful.

I had t-shirt yarn... soooooo excited to use it, and that adorable glass birdhouse is the smae shade of purple as my craft room, so guess where that's going:)

moxiepurple, thank you to the moon and back! You're wonderful!

These are all stunning! I am about to add to the awesomeness. I was very lucky to have Interrobam as a partner, she did such a gorgeous job, and I cannot wait to stitch up a small pouch, or wallet to affix these too, however they would look amazing on my fridge also, decisions! She sent along a note card that was drawn up by hers truly, and it incorporated yet a third theme of mine as pin ups, and it truly deserved it's own gallery unveil, so here it be!

I have massive love for hummingbirds, this is GORGEOUS!!

She took off with my nature theme too! ( I know, I'm super lucky!!) It's a leaf! but no, look closer, there's a fox!! a perfectly stitched adorable fox! and in its mouth? Another teeny tiny leaf!! Eeeeee Smiley

My camera's craptastic and it can't capture the perfect teeny tiny details, which is a sad thing, I love love love these, thank you again Interrobam, and your 2nd badge is 3/4 complete, and I'll be sending very soon!

I received a most beautiful package from Elameno a couple of days ago! I'm in love<3 She expertly carved me a stamp, I LOVE LOVE LOVE hummingbirds, and this is gorgeous. I waited a couple days to post in hopes of finding a sufficient ink pad, however the ones I have dried up, and I hadn't made it to grab more yet. Not only that, but Elameno has a love of Disney, and Tink's my personal fave, so I got an adorable leaf shaped pendant, with a beautiful tinkerbell layering over it, It's wonderful! Thank you so much, Elameno, and Iam hoping your package makes it shortly:)

Super wonderful things pouring in! I found the cutest things today in the mailbox! Moonlitsun had claimed me for crochet peeps, and they are adooorrrable!

Such an adorable waterfall mini card was included too! It was adorned with wonderful little personalized charms, stamps and stickers, and was such a great addition to the cute peeps!

Each peep had its own expression, and the colors are great, they don't scream Easter so these little buggers will look completely in place all year!

Thank you very very much, Moonlitsun!!

I received not one but TWO awesome crochet swiffer mop covers from the fabulous craftaddiction! They work great and my wallet thanks you, I'm a constant floor sweeping weirdo, so these are practical, and MUCH prettier than the disposable counter part.
here's a closeup of the green:

and my swiffer currently sports the purple:

Thank you bunches and bunches, craftaddiction <3

My matchbox from alwaysinmyroom was waiting quietly in my mailbox today, waiting to take my breath away.

Gorgeous, right? I love love the face, and that acorn? It;s felted beneath its cap, beautiful work! To give a bit of back story, alwaysinmyroom had spent two nights lost in the woods as a child, and I adore the fact she incorporated her experience into this piece, because I was intrigued by her experience. The layered paper is perfect.
Then I opened it, and found this

Well it's the back of the drawer, but how awesome! A very creepy, but super majestic owl. Inside the actual drawer was this

an itty bitty crazily detailed mini book, and what's inside that you ask?

each tiny page had a snippet of description from her lost in the woods expedition. Those were 2 of my favorites.

and this on the inside as well

There was certainly no wasted space on this little treasure. Linda, I can't thank you enough, this is beautiful, and I love how personal it is, most meaningful swap yet, thank  you bunches !

YAY! It was my first day back to work from my mini vacation, and I arrived home to amazing spoilage from KodaNRoxyDogs!! Since I had a group of days off I had consumed massive amounts of coffee and tea since it was constantly available (not so much at work) I had the classic lack of caffeine headache. This was a magical sight to say the least.

I wasted no time hanging it on my pantry door in my kitchen

she took my love of nature themes and colors and ran with it:)
look at the gorgeous pin detail.

The wreath itself had a beautiful leaf pattern, I am looking for a similar design for some kitchen updates so this is superbly perfect!

and of course a MASSIVE stash of tea
*passion is my favorite too, and I had forgotten about it for a little while, so this is MUCH appreciated, I will have to take your tip on adding it to lemonade....yum!

Thank you Kristin, this was fantastic, you're certainly a wonderful lady!! <3
