41  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Round 2 Still More TM Inspired Patches, Signup 7-20 thru 7-28, Send out by 8/18 on: July 31, 2013 05:03:05 PM
CraftsUnderGround - thank you sooooo much for organizing this swap!  We appreciate you me dear   Kiss
Sometimes those long hours just happen.  It's a bummer when paid employment interferes with crafting!  Yep.  It's all good.  HaH! 

Artista - sending you positive thoughts.  I asked for wonky and if you are going to be crafting after anesthesia... I probably will get wonky!   Grin  Been there.  Done that. 

To all - I have some fun open minded partners.  The patches may entail that 'for mature audiences only' button.  Shocked  This is going to be a great round.  Yep.  I am very much looking forward to getting started!  And I just remembered... there's a kit, eh?  Hmmmm.  Forgot about that part.

I've been looking at Phizzy's inchies and this would give me the kick to get some little pieces of mini art going.   Very excited!

and I seriously managed to get a screw into that bag of buttons...lmao..too funny!...
I've already used the screw as we are in a new apartment!  Everything in this package was such a treat.  I feel happy happy!

I finally received Package #1 from across the pond.  EdelC likes to travel so of course the package she sent took a detour to go site-seeing in the Caribbean.  Snorkeling I think.  Off St. Johns.  But it's here now with all sorts of fun postal notations!  Maybe I can incorporate the package into a piece of art?  Hmmm.

Of course the husband dove right into the chocolates.  I told him that we had to eat them with tea, like EdelC.  That didn't go over too well and "wouldn't be proper."  Edel, he says thanks.  And he thinks the socks are for him  Roll Eyes

Everything was wrapped in a GORGEOUS bag with a note "In Ireland there is a levy on plastic bags, so everyone uses fabric ones."  Recently our home town outlawed plastic bags.  There was quite an uproar but the comment that kept coming up was... If Ireland can do it, we can do it.  Hah!  So EdelC, thank you very very much for the fabric bag.  Problem is that it's too beautiful to put produce in, so I think it's going to be my quilting bag. 

And a close-up of the famous EdelC flamingos for y'all to enjoy!

But wait!  There's more. Wholey guacamole with cilantro and garlic!

Heh heh heh.  Did I get spoiled or what???  Earrings.

And goodies!  I love goodies!  Piles of fabric scraps, buttons, lace trims and a piece of coral (probably from snorkeling).

And if that isn't enough...  Have you all seen Edel's Featured Project of the linocut?  And the funny printing method of using her car to roll over the make-shift printing press?  Not only is she featured here in Craftster, but rumor has it that MythBusters is going to put her in the next duct tape episode.

Eat your hearts out fellow Craftsters!  I have an EdelC original featured project!  And it fits! 

But wait!  That's not all Shocked
Not only can this girl stamp, sew, print, make cards, and take on 20,000 bees.  Check this out!  It's been on my wrist and it ain't coming off! 

EdelC - you are amazing!  I want to hang out with you and drink tea and eat chocolates and make things.  Any plans to move to this side of the pond?

I am getting so many fantastic ideas from the gallery.  I forget about simple arts like shrinky-dinks and magnets and homemade envelopes.  It's a glorious gallery.  I keep calling my Momma to see if my package has arrived from the other side of the world.  Patience.  Patience. 
In the meantime, I'm playing with my art supplies and having a blast.  Gonna make me a BIG painting!

Hey Smmarrrt - I've done some research and really like this idea.  I'm thinking of doing a journal that opens both left and right with some flaps from the top and maybe bottom.  And pockets and...
So... I'm in.

Husband says to drill four screw/bolt holes to prevent the slippage.  But that would be more complicated, eh?

What a hoot!  It's amazing what our artist ingenuity will come up with when we 'need' something.  Another fine example of 'make it work'.  Looooove it!
