I must say, I was feel very lucky to get Kookie (Kookaloo_Starr) as my partner - though totally in awe of her experience and amazing creations!
I was totally right though, and my gosh, I cannot believe the amazing creation that arrived for me in the post! I only wish photos could do her justice! (I believe you can find better photos by Kookie here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=424932.0#axzz2XS0EaXxd

She's absolutely beautiful and certainly a work or art. Kookie drew inspiration from my love of foxes, lace, Victoriana, vintage and fantasy. I have named her Reynarda for one of my favourite fictional foxes.

Thanks so much Kookaloo_Starr!

4  Miss Pettigrew Vintage Chic Headband in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by midnight on: July 12, 2011 06:20:58 AM
I'm sure you, like me, have craved over Amy Adams wardrobe in the film 'Miss Pettigrew Lives For A Day'. Every time I watch it I wish I lived her life - so bit by bit I'm trying to slowly bring myself closer starting with.....this headband!

She wears it in the bath and looks so elegant and effortless. I was throwing out some fabric scraps and just couldnt bear to part with this blue satin, so decided to put it to good use!

The oiginal:


Obligatory action shots!

Thinking of making the bow bigger....

I use it for keeping my hair off my face whn doing my makeup. Makes me feel a little bit more chic and elegant! Wink

it is time for the posting of the incredible swap goodness created by Demi_kitten! are you sitting comfortably? then Ill begin...

firstly, a beautiful pair of dangly earrings with silver owl charms. they are perfect for me as I have my ears pierced twice so one stud goes in the bottom hole and they other in the top so the chain dangls elegantly between. I wore these to work today and go SO many compliments you wouldnt believe, and I felt so smug each time telling people they were made for me personally.  Cheesy

And matching charm bracelet. I have an obsession with cham bracelets and this one is lovely, with Jareths baubles and owls.

The background of the photos is some pretty fabric scraps Demi_kitten sent me and I thought they made a nice backing for the pictures.

Something that made me grin huge - a Sir Didimus embroidery with a wonderful quote! It makes me laugh everytime I look at it as I find Sir Didimus so cute and amusing!

And possibly my absolute favourite (though it is tough competition!) an equisite handmade mask - now I just need an invite to a ball in a bubble in order to wear it out!!

Demi_kitten also included a lovely little notebook with a picture of what is deffinitely a WORM (not a caterpillar) saying hello. Cause we all know caterpillars dont talk, so it must be a worm Wink and I also photoed the cute paper on which she wrote me a letter.

Thank you SO much demi_kitten! you are a wonderful swap partner and I love my Labyrinth items!

6  Pirates of the Caribbean Burlesque costume for less than 20! PIC HEAVY in Costumes: Completed Projects by midnight on: March 17, 2011 05:22:27 AM
This whole ensemble, including undergarments and decoration, was completely handmade from scratch and all came to less than 20 in total! (That about $32 USD)

A quick explanation: I am a Burlesque performer and this act was created for a Movies themed night run locally. As I was promised a star guest appearance (you will see!) I decided to do a Pirates of the Caribbean act.

The costume comprises of: bottom layer: a corset (not period accurate and not made by me, though I did make an 18th century corset anyway for the hell of it Cheesy ) and bloomers made by the lovely VintageGrace, covered by a chemise I also didnt make....now we get to the bits I did make!

On top is a pair of panniers which cost about 2, made from white cotton and shaped with metal arches meant for gardening decoration! In this photo, I look VERY pleased as the next layer got STUCK on stage and I had to rip it off!  Undecided I was worried I would be stuck forever!
The layer that got stuck was a petticoat, made from an old lace curtain from a thrift store - cost 1.50.

On top of that goes the underskirt, made from a thrifted bed cover costing 3, then the overdress with attched front pannel, made from thrifted lade edged curtains costing about 5. The pannel was decorated with a piece of crochet I did from left over yarn and decorated with pearls from a broken necklace. The lace sleeves were made from lace ripped from an old wedding dress.

The fan and lace gloves I already owned and the 'cursed pirate medallion' came from amazon for about 2.50.

And my special guest? He was free  Grin

deffo one of the funnest packages I've ever made, I really enjoyed making it Cheesy
 And so on to one of the best packages I've ever received from the ever talented Loukr! I nicked a few of her photos of the items she sent as she is a proffessional Smiley

Exciting numbered packages which I carefully opened in order (I lie, I was too excited I madea right old mess!)

Firstly, some lovely vintage fabrics and buttons... which I have already had to get stuck into cause they are soo pretty

A beautiful vintage key pendant, which has charms at the back so they dangle behind, how clever is that? I never thought of that before!

Each item came with a pretty vintage style printed label Cheesy

I couldnt get a great photo of this cause of the glare, but as Loukr is a very talented photographer she sent this print which is a self portrait entitled 'mechanical' : "she woulddo the same thing, at the same time, every single day like clockwork, just to keep herself from shutting down"

An absolutely GORGEOUS fabric flower necklace with a vintage key on it. I adore this! I wore it out today and felt sooo proud of it!

Last but by no means least, this amazing hanging garland with dangling keys made from twisted vintage fabric, vintage buttons and ribbon. It is simply incredible and the craftmanship is so wonderful! I hung it up in my room straight away and keep moving it and playing with it. I just cant decide where it looks best cause it looks so good everywhere!

Thanks Loukr for an incredible package, I love everything so much!

Received my awesome package from the lovely Niinamaria today - and I am thrilled to bits! Check it out!

Superawesome MOOMIN stamps! This got me going before I even got the package open!

Some great fabric tape and some beautiful photos that Niinamaria actually took in Versailles! Niinamaria, do you perhaps have a better scan of these pics than my photo to show everyone? My camera just doesnt do them justice!

A fab sewing machine cover, which is exactly what I needed and goes great in my room. Johnny, my machine, will be very happy this winter!

Loving the toile fabric!

I couldnt think how to photo this next one, so i put it straight into action! Its a fabric container for me to keep my (many) beauty things in and its sooo well made and stunning to boot!

She also kindly included the paper pattern for the container (yes!) along with this lovely handmade card and a MOOMIN BOOKMARK! (SQUEEE!)

And to top of my squees of joy - more Moomin goodies!!! A notebook and pillowcase!!

Thank you sooo much Niinamaria! You rock! X
