161  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Twilight Collage on: March 03, 2009 08:17:49 PM
I made this piece for my IYP swap partner jennieingram.

...I wasn't quite sure where to put it....it isn't quite paper craft, though it is out of paper...and I did use the inchie concept, but have you seen those fabulous inchies!!! Shocked.....no, mine are simple drawings.......and yes, I know; they are drawings, but I would not classify it as art...so this is how I came to the conclusion of miscellaneous (which I have to admit is one of my favorite boards here on craftster. Smiley)...

Anyhow, here is a Twilight "inchie" collage. It is pretty straight forward, but I liked how it turned out. Smiley

let me apologize now for  the glare..sorry Tongue

I just love making these beaded trees.
They are much simpler than the appear to be.
So if you are dying for one, give it a whirl.

164  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Twilight Forks Earrings on: February 27, 2009 07:07:12 AM
I love the playfulness of using the fork charms for Twilight, so I couldn't resist making a piece with them for my Twilight swap partner.

So I present my version of Twilight Forks earrings....

...and no, I don't think they are too green Wink

I made this locket for my Twilight swap partner...well, I found the locket piece at Michael's, knew it was Twilight bound, attached it to cording, added endings, and put pic inside...

Of course Edward is inside!

All closed up, ready for wear.....

I reserve the right to refuse anyone. If you have feedback that shows a history of incomplete packages, very late sending, ill-communication, lack of DC #'s, etc. I may refuse you. I want this to be a flake-free swap.

Swap Details: For the love of embroidery, let's swap! 

*We will be swapping 1 crafted large and either 2 bought/crafted smalls or 1 bought/crafted medium*

Need Ideas? You could craft items such as embroidered pillowcases, tea towels, samplers, napkins, journal covers, dolls/stuffies, totes...I could go on and on.  For small/medium items you could swap swap embroidery goodies such as needlebooks, pincushions,thread, needles, patterns, kits.

Examples of sizes: Large: 3 hours or more; $30 or more; set of pillowcases, set of tea towels, large stuffie; Medium: 2 hours or more to complete; $15-$30 in supply value; kit, bracelet, threadcatcher, deluxe pincushion; Small: at least 1 hour but no more than 2 hours to complete; $5-$15 in supplies; needles, needlebook, bottlecap pincushion, bookmarks

For a wonderful swap experience, communication is the key.  Please keep in touch with your partner.

Further, it would be nice if you would post in this thread at least once a week (you could just stop in for a quick hello.....or if on holiday or will be without internet access or anything of the such, just post a message....it just gives your partner and organizer warm fuzzy feelings to know you are still around).

Also, I suggest you create a wist, if you haven't already.  Wists are very helpful to see your likes and wishes.

Notes about sending, receiving, and feedback:
  • Take pictures of your items before you send.
  • When sending, you must use a DC# (or for overseas keep that receipt).
  • Keep your receipt until your partner receives. 
  • PM organizer and partner when you send.
  • PM organizer and partner when you receive.
  • Take pictures of received items. (Please take quality pictures, like ones you would take of your work.)
  • Post pictures in gallery in a timely manner, within a few days.
  • When a package is received (verified through PM or DC#) AND pictures are posted in the gallery (This is why it is important for you to take pictures of your items, just in case your partner does not*Please PM if there is difficulty with pictures; it is how I keep up with feedback.
  • Lack of communication and explanation, such as no PMs of sending/receiving, will be noted in your feedback.

168  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Mammoth Pincushion on: February 12, 2009 02:55:22 PM
I made my OWS 42 partner a mammoth pincushion; of course now she doesn't want to stick pins in him. Cheesy  He is handsewn, made of fleece and felt, and has weighted feet so he stays upright.  He was so fun to make (even if his butt is a bit bubbly; I'm pretty sure mammoths had bubble butts  Cheesy Wink Grin).
