11  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Friends of Craftster Raffle Swap R10 FOCR R10 (Signups CLOSED Sendout 10/25) on: October 20, 2011 06:33:29 PM
Okay, here is the map pendant that I'm in the process of making:

As a veteran FOC raffle swapper, I know that the item has to be finished and ready to go before the swap gets underway, but I think I forgot that in my essay/test taking fog.  I was mindlessly thinking I'd get to it this weekend, but obviously that won't work.  I've got it put together, I just need some sunshine for the resin-y stuff to set.  Tomorrow is supposed to be nice and sunny, so when I get home from school I'll get it outside.

I chose Italy, because I'd love to visit there, and because I love the name Bologna  Smiley

TSM, is it okay that I'm offering an (as yet) unfinished item?
12  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / Re: Freezer Paper Stenciling on Artist's Canvas - is it possible? on: October 20, 2011 07:57:56 AM
I painted some canvases brown, then stenciled letters on them to look like scrabble tiles.  I tried freezer paper first, but it wouldn't adhere well.  It may very possibly have been something I did.  Or maybe it was the paint.  Anyway, I ended up using contact paper, which worked much better.

Good luck, and be sure to post pics when you're finished  Smiley

I'll be posting some pictures soon.  I've been really busy these last couple of weeks with essays and exams.  I'll try to get them up tomorrow or saturday.  I got a fantastic package from my partner!  I really enjoyed this swap  Smiley

I'm just checking this thread during down time in my school schedule. I see that today is the deadline for posting pics of our offerings, which makes sense.  I will try to get a map pendant all ready to go this afternoon and get pics up, but it won't be until this evening some time.

And the Burlington pendant is NC  Smiley

I want to play!  I've participated in almost all the rounds of this swap, and I can't stand the thought of not being in this one.  I'm having trouble coming up with an offering, though, with school and all it's time consuming-ness. 

would one of these interest anyone?

It's not the best picture, sorry.  It's a map pendant.  I will make it with my partner in mind, so say, if I won a craftster in New York, I wouldn't send you one with Texas in it  Wink.  Anyway, if y'all like it enough, I'll send in my questionnaire and plan on making one of these this week!

I sent to ChristieAnn yesterday.  It went out in 2 large priority boxes, and one was almost too full to tape.  Her package got to me last week, and it's been sitting at the kitchen table, just taunting me.  My daughter is visiting from GA this weekend, and she begged me to let her see what ChristieAnn sent, so I let her open it.   I wish I had taken pics of the wrapping, because it was so cool, all wrapped in black tissue paper, with white writing and great monster stickers.  Alas, I didn't think of it until afterward Sad

I really wanted to look at everything, but I bit my cheek and walked out of the room.  I can't even tell you how hard it was not to peek when my girl would say, "Oh, mama, you're going to LOVE this.  Oh, and this too!"  She says that I will be super duper happy with this package when it comes time to open  Cheesy  Now I want to dig through everything immediately....

Thank you in advance, ChristieAnn!!

Good grief, I'm such a slacker  Embarrassed

I received a great box of halloween goodies from ChristieAnn, and when my daughter came home for a visit, she opened it up for me (right, nosy thing).  Unfortunately, I didn't think to take pics of the wrapping, it was super cool.  ChristieAnn wrapped everything in black tissue and wrote the numbers in white paint.  Some of them were wrapped with the most awesome skeleton ribbon! She really spoiled me  Grin

I've been putting off transferring the pictures to the computer and then uploading them because it seems to take forever.  So, FINALLY, here they are:

Day 1 was a box of lovely chocolate that did not survive long enough to have it's picture made.  My 14 year old kept lurking around the corner, and every time I'd come back into the room there would be fewer pieces...

Day 2

Party goods!  Aren't they cute?  Smiley

Day 3

Swoon-worthy coasters.  I love these!!

Day 4

Cat wearing a mask in a candle.  She and I both have black cats, so alot of halloween stuff is a great fit Wink

Day 5

Scrabble tile picture.  This is probably my second fave, it's over my sink so I can look at it all the time.

Day 6 and 7

Gel drink charms and a cute little stuffed head

Day 8

Awesome Wizard of Oz witch magnets!  I heart these   Cheesy

Day 9

My favoritest item of all---the most awesome skull earrings.  I HEART these muchly  Grin Grin
Sorry the pic is so yucky, it's difficult to snap a picture of earrings in use on oneself, but I didn't want to take them off!

Day 10

Zombie Honeymoon.  The aforementioned 14 year old has made a date to watch it with me this weekend (if I can tear him away from Battlefield 3 long enough!!)

Day 11

Scrapbook supplies...look at all the pretty papers!  I love this too (I can tell it was a great swap by the amount of times I said I love it)

Day 12

The cutest punch and memo pad!

Day 13

The most gorgeous glass necklace!

And extras:

the little voodoo dolls are adorable and the ribbon was around some of the packages. 

A cool craft book that is so craftster-ish  Wink

And here are some of the things I sent to her:

I replaced the label with a vinyl fence and some ghosts

I found this in a superman blue color, took it apart and halloween-ed it.  I sent candy corn to go in it.

A countdown

reversible letters

the other side

Sidney the sock skeleton


Jack hoop

embroidered wicked

rag wreath

I've been finished and ready to send for a week or better.  However, I just haven't had the time to wrap everything and pack it.  I hate that that's the only thing keeping it from already being received....ah, well.  This weekend will see it get packed up and shipped out.
