So if I am the last to receive, then the BEST was saved for last!  krafty_kelly did such a fabulous job being my swap angel!

Here's what I received:

An awesome "ministry of silly walks" tote, with wood handles, it is sooo perfect!  I love every detail on it!  Great job stenciling!  I love it!!! 

A hand crochet dead parrot... talk about hard to get a dead parrot to stand up straight to get it's picture taken!  AWESOMENESS!  I soooo love it!  I just wish I could crochet!

I also received an awesome killer rabbit scarf!  This scarf is sooo totally cool!  I tried to get my daughter to model it, but she was scared!  LOL

My daughter received the cutest crochet winter cap... it only I could get her to sit still and leave it on for a good picture.. and I thought that dead parrot was honnery!  LOL

All the loot!  This has been soo worth the wait!  Thanks again krafty_kelly!  YOU ROCK!

the glories sent to me from atomic_pink_pigeon!

Here we have the group shot.  I received a "suitcase" decoupaged (from top to bottom) in wonderful tribute to HST, an incense burner made from a small crown royal bottle, a decoupaged photo frame (with an awesome pic of Johnny Depp & Benicio Del Toro from F&L in LV), a pendant with hand painted clubs, diamond, & spade, a necklace with handpainted heart, and a keyfob with the clubs, diamond, space & heart......... I love it all... especially the suitcase.. It's so funny because I made atomic_pink_pigeon a decoupaged suitcase too!  Great minds think alike!

4  Retro Smallie in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by kymporter on: August 11, 2006 03:23:24 PM
Bag Title: Retro Smallie  (image heavy)

I bought this material on ebay, it's vintage, and I got a ton of it.  I hadn't made a messanger bag before, but decided I'd try.  I think it came out kinda cute... super small (it barely holds my stuff). 

The front view:

The long view:

The "flap" up:

The inside:

Another of the front:

The material is super thick, and I couldn't find any really good coordinating material, so I just made it all the same.

I didn't take pics of everything I sent anna-begins, but here is a small pic of one of the items....

It's a lamp, made from fabric, acrylic paint, bamboo, hot glue and a night-light/cord assembly.  It was tons of fun making it!  All the sides have different pics of a dead parrot with "sayings" from the skit.  Hopefully anna-begins can post us some action shots, and pictures of her other goodies!   Grin

I also sent her a white denim purse with "the ministry of silly walks" iron-on transfer on one side, and some random MP stuff on the other side (the lining is a black denim).  I made her a matching wallet too with some Holy Grail transfers.

I also revamped a rubix's cube, with terry gilliam pics.

7  Lined with zipper, belated Mother's Day Purse/Tote w/ matching Checkbook cover in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by kymporter on: June 05, 2006 02:39:06 PM
So, with my hubby outta town for a few days, and my Mom visiting, I finally got "around" to making her Mother's Day present.  She picked out the fabrics at JoAnn's, and I did all the rest.  She picked out some really pretty fabric, and it sewed up nicer than I had thought it would.  The purse is 15x5.  I lined the purse with a coordinating blue, gave her some inside pockets for her cellphone and keys, and a couple small pockets for pens, and put a zipper in between the lining and the outside shell.  I had tried the tut on doing the gussetted zipper, but mine didn't turn out so great, and this was easier for me.  The checkbook cover was the tricky part.  She has the weird kind of checkbook that has a small section at the top of the actual checks to write down the "whos and how muches" instead of a separate check history registry. 

This is the purse with my Mom modeling:

Halfelvenwriter, you are totally AWESOME!  I love EVERYTHING!  Seems like Bobolink's intuition on selecting swap buddies was at an all time high when she put together partners!   I am totally blown away with my stuff!  It sooo suites me to a "T"!

I received, a handmade journal decorated with gorgeous leaf paper, with a beautiful dragonfly on the front, a clear envelope on the inside back, that contains some great Tea, accompanied by some wonderful frogs!  I LOVE ME SOME FROGS!

I also received, two handmade stuffed frogs, one big, one small.... soooo freakin awesome!  Some Frog stickers to boot!

A one-of-a-kind, blow your mind with it's beauty decorated box, with the most wonderful tadpole picture surrounded by the coolest frogs on front, and inside, adorable butterflies and a gold leaf!

I LOVE IT - I SAY I LOVE IT - I SAY I LOVE IT - LOVE IT- if you can't tell I'm doing a little dance!

Here's pics:

The whole set:

Halfelvenwriter, I adore it all!  Thank you soooo much!

10  Re: Forest Friends! (Sign ups 3/28/06-4/11/06) Send by 5/09/06 CLOSED in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by kymporter on: May 04, 2006 09:44:15 AM
so, I had a 1st hand experience Tuesday with a little forest friend... I kept hearing this chirping sound coming from the air conditioner closet, and when I finally looked, there on the floor was a baby mocking bird.  The nest must be up in the ceiling, and he had fallen through a small hole around the venting.  I searched the internet for info on what to feed him, and found some stuff called "nutra-start" and it was sold at petsmart... so I called, and the girl that answered the phone told me about a reserve in our area that might take him (seeing as how he needed to be feed every 2 hours).  Of coarse it was around 6:30 when I found him, and I got the answering service, but was told they would be open at 8 the next morning.  I read the ingrediants for the "nutra-start" and the main ingrediant was rice flour... well what do you know, the main ingrediant in baby rice cereal is rice flour... so we mix some up, and feed him through one of Vada's medicine syringes... me and my hubby take turns getting up through the night, and feeding him.  Wednesday morning me and Vada take him to the reserve, where Vada (who is 14 months) gets to hold a baby raccoon, and a baby duck... I wanted to take the raccoon home... hehe.   Today is Thursday, and I called this morning and the bird is still doing good.  YEAH!  Looks like he's going to beat the "odds".
