21  Re: Sweet and Easy Valentine's Day Swap Round 3 in The Swap Gallery by elyxandra on: February 19, 2013 10:03:10 PM
I received my package from CuriousCoffee before the weekend, but have been out of town until tonight.
The package was TOUGH to open - look at how much duct tape was used!

When I finally found a way in I discovered lots of special treats!
I received a delicious smelling jar of Green Rooibos Cinnamon Vanilla Tea. It smells so spicy and wonderful - I can't wait to try it in my beautiful tumbler!  The tumbler has a pretty flower patterned wrap with a green button centre - how appropriate!
The valentine itself if gorgeous! I've hung it on my office door so I can see it all the time. I aspire to be this good at papercraft!

And finally, there was a little box decorated with redpaper... and inside? Not one, but TWO tragus cuffs! I adore ear cuffs, and have a few typical helix ones, but have been lusting over a tragus version for a while now. The black one is similar to one I've had on my wishlist, and the red one is thematically appropriate and came with a matching ring!

Thank you thank you CuriousCoffee! I love everything!

23  Fused glass platter and plates - blue and white stripe in Glass Crafts: Completed Projects by elyxandra on: January 17, 2013 12:11:46 PM
In the fall I took a 1 day workshop on fused glass. I decided to use the day as an opportunity to make a Christmas gift for my mom. I made her a set of white and blue plates. The top photo doesn't show it very well, but they were re-fired over a mold to give them a curved shape. I really enjoyed the process. I think my experience with stained glass really helped me because I was already comfortable with cutting glass.

Wish I had a kiln so I could do more of these!

24  Dishcloth with bobbles - first project in Crochet: Completed Projects by elyxandra on: January 17, 2013 11:52:43 AM
While it's not to most beautiful dishcloth on earth, I'm pretty proud that I managed to complete it without completley screwing up!
I think I lost some stitches partway through which would account for the wonky edge.

Now to work on my death-grip - it's giving me hand cramps!

I was very lucky to have bunny1kenobi as an angel.

I received 3 lovely gifts!

First of all, I LOVE a clock work orange (film and book) so I will get a lot of enjoyment out of wearing this shirt Smiley
I also got a really cool looking bracelet. The patina on the ring is really cool (nice combination of green and brass colours if you can't see it too well from the photo.)
And finally, a wish pendant! This is the first thing I ever put on my wish list board so I was really excited to get one! I've been wearing it a lot already.

Thank you my angel!

When I came home one night earlier in the week I looked over an saw a box sitting on the dirt beside the front step. It was a package from Jexxican! I was worried the contents might have gotten damp but when I opened it everything was in perfect condition Smiley

What a haul!
She made me 5 beautiful owls - I think they must be a family Smiley
Two bags full of salt dough tags
Hand carved Es that will be very useful for decorating letters/packages!
An GORGEOUS little draw string pouch that looks like a flower - I really love this! The stamps were hidden inside Smiley

Thank you thank you thank you!

Dr Craft was hard at work, sending out dotees so early in the swap!

I received a very beautiful Victorian lady with a lace dress!
How pretty! I love her slightly wild hair

Thank you Dr Craft!
