51  Re: Where I live Swap Gallery in The Swap Gallery by meowari on: April 06, 2006 02:22:56 PM
here's a picture of everything nix kisses sent me (minus a few chocolate squares):

she sent brochures, articles, maps, California poppy seeds, a college banner thing( I know it has a real name, I just can't think of it), a California cheese pouch that she made, local candy... all kinds of stuff!
a close up of the ATC cards she sent and some cool old-looking postcards:

two bags that she must have spent TONS of time on. I really really really LOVE the train one, it's so darn cute!

two CD's she put together of local music and two felt plushies (the California one even has an embroidered star where here town is located on the back!):

My partner put so much time and effort into this, I hope she likes mine as much as I like hers! I'm almost finished, I have to go back over a few things now, though...

Here's what I sent:

(the theme was chickens, in case you can't tell Grin)
The stuff in the tin was: a necklace with the art of Gervasio Gallardo, http://www.lavatyart.com/galleries/ggallardo/ggallardo.htm , who I adore, a felt chicken pin, 3 magnets, some buttons, and a mini-journal.

Oh, man all of these tins are awesome! I've just now gotten over here and looked at the gallery. I hope my partner doesn't hate me when she gets my tin... Plans A and B didn't work at all, and my plan C wasn't at all what I envisioned, but it was all I could do. I think maybe I should have waited this one out Undecided.  
I got my package yesterday, my theme was sailor tattoos and here are the pictures:

this is the outside of the tin- how did she get the fimo so flat? It looks so professional- not at all like any of my attempts!

this is the inside and all of my goodies:  sailor themed shrinky dinks, a rhinestone tattoo, a strange card that's going up on my wall in my craft room (I love it!), some ocean -themed buttons, and a mirror that she put a frosted anchor on.

and this is a bad close-up of the quote on the inside ("Show me a man with a tattoo and I'll show you a man with an interesting past." - Jack London) and the mirror.

Here are the pictures of what knit_core sent me:

an awesome set of stationery with a zippered pouch that looks like a book

a frame with an altered quote from Emma

the front of a pillow she knitted (Jane's profile)

the back of it (a popular wallpaper pattern from the Recency era)

and she even made this for my cat, Sasha
I love everything! Thank you so much, knit_core!

I'm lucky my job doesn't have a problem with my tattoos or piercings, I was worried about it when I interviewed (it's at an ad agency that deals only with pharmaceuticals), but they didn't care as long as I follow the dress code and do my work. Here are two shots of the one I started on Sun.:

Sorry they're so blurry, but it's a hard area to take a picture of by yourself.

Yay! I had to work late, again, and i smooshed my finger in a door at work, so it wasn't a good night... until I got home and saw that my package from HairstylinMama had come! And when I opened it... it was as if Chrismakah had come early this year! Of course, my camera is in on the conspiracy already put into motion earlier today at work to ruin my day, so the pictures I took are not good at all. I tried to retake them, but my computer isn't even recognizing the card now Tongue! HairstylinMama if you've got better pictures please post them. If not, I'll try again tomorrow to take better ones. Here they are:
Two handmade pouches w/ zippers and a patch

An awesome purse to match one of the cool zippy pouches

And incense (that smells really good, by the way) a keychain, shoelaces (where did you ever find them? they're great!) a sparkly pin and the bestest christmas cards in the world (they say "blue christmas)! How did you know I collect snow globes? I am so so so so happy! HairstylinMama is the most wonderful swap partner in the world!

I already posted on the other thread, but here's my (unfinished) patchwork sleeve:

After reading all of this, it makes me want to get some more "crafty" tattoos. I'm thinking an old-school Bedazzler w/ angel wings...

58  Re: Glass Marble Magnets in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by meowari on: December 05, 2005 07:11:11 AM
I never thought to make magnets with these things until I saw them on Craftster! A few years ago, my friend saw some necklaces at a local store and thought she could make them, too. She showed me how she made them when I came to visit, and I've refined the process since then. I just use modge podge (glossy) to stick them on and I just bought a whole bunch of flat marbles from a website that someone reccomended on one of these marble magnet posts:
Here are my necklaces:

Until I found the website, I couldn't find the larger marbles anywhere! Michael's has stopped carrying them and they don't have Garden Ridge here. The last ones I got at Garden Ridge were full of little air bubbles, anyway. You can't get my necklaces wet, because of the modge podge- is the E600 good for sticking the images on, or just the magnets?
Wait, here is a thread about making the necklaces- that's where I found the website:
Her way is pretty much the same way I do mine, except I use hot glue to affix the wire and I cover the back with felt.

Those plastic shoe boxes from the dollar tree help a lot. If you can't get the clear ones, just stick a label to the outside of the box.  Zippers in one, buttons in another,small notions in another, etc.I have a huge cart with 4 shelves that I keep fabric on, I sort by color, though. I keep my yarn in plastic bins under the table and in the laundry room. They are separated by: fancy-non natural fibers, natural fibers, acrylic, then a pop-up laundry basket with my latch hook canvas and rug yarns in it. As you can see, I use every available piece of space available:

I got the white bins at Ikea, and the wire rack that holds my paint and glue from the clearance aisle at Wal-Mart. I use old mugs, spice racks (more beads) -whatever I have at hand-, to hold stuff

I used to work at a bar, and I got them to save cool bottles for me to put beads in. That's an old roasted pepper can from the kitchen of a restaurant I worked at, filled with knitting needles. Some kid's cup I got at the thrift store is perfect for my scissors. I just put the knick-knack shelf up, and I'm in the process of filling it. My boyfriend made the thread holder for me.
 It looks cluttered, but I keep my worktop clear, so it's not so bad.

60  fake dog (or cat) poo! in Get Product and Website Opinions by meowari on: November 18, 2005 06:36:09 AM
My dad makes fake dog poo:

Do you think there's a market for it? And where would you try selling it? How much would you pay for it?
P.S. My dad is pretty much blind, and if he can supplement his Social Security/ Disability checks with this, it would be really nice, so please respond. I've never sold anything online before, and I told him I would try to help him with it, but I'm pretty clueless about selling online.
