since qazicat has cleared it, i will post what i sent to ruthiemiserable. according to the post office, she's received, but i have yet to hear from her....i sure hope she likes everything!  Undecided

i made a  large pin-up girl purse, lined in cherry print fabric. looks familiar, right, primashonna?? Smiley

the lining:

a pleather varga girl luggage tag:

a pendant strung onto velvet ribbon:
i also made a 5 pack of marble magnets with random pin up images, though i didn't photograph that for some reason...hrm.

yay! i'm so glad you got it today...i did take pics, so i'll post 'em here...i am so relieved you like everything! the necklace & the pvc cuff are both things i'd never tried to make before, so i was really stressing the outcome. does the cuff fit okay? i fit it to me, and i've got a case of Fat Wrist.
so..onto the stuff!
eric white tee shirt.

pendant made from a niagara print.

mizna mobile phone/personal electronical device charm.

niagara & mark ryden button set.

red pvc cuff. the pictures are mark ryden, niagara & eric white.

the reverse side of the cuff with super duper tiki fabric!

so yeah...thats the first cuff i've made, here's hoping you dig it!! Smiley

i received from the lovely stichingsister today! early this morning, in fact....since i mailed to you earlier, i'm hoping that you get yours today, as well!! (stupid holiday!)

at any rate, i got great stuff. ...including a blue tote bag with a rad camille rose garcia print on it, three snazzy a$$ed magnets, and possibly the best thing i've ever gotten in a swap, a niagara sampler!! seriously, the sampler is so cool, i never would have thought of that--and i ADORE it!! it's goin' up on the wall in our living room.


CRG tote. wish my scanner had picked the really nice blue colour....feh. plus, it's lined in a plush leopard. i love leopard, so i'm pretty stoked about this, too.


thank you so much...you rocked as a partner, even humouring my many questions throughout our five bagillion messages...Smiley  yay!

i had a super lucky day, post-wise! i received from both nikkisixx666 and starpiste all in the same delivery...snazzy.

i took the pictures with miss hana wearing the clothing as she is the most neglected of my girls. poor thing never gets any new items.  Cry

from starpiste, i got a really nice knitted cap, an embroidered black dress with a spider (EE!), some little house slippers, 2 hair clips, and the best part--a tiny swiffer!! my 19 month old son has stolen the swiffer several times already and keeps trying to clean with it. it's rad...what a good idea!

from nikkisixx666, i got the hottest stripey sweater top ever! it's got an appliqued & embroidered bit with a rad skull guy. and guess what? it came with a cool skull guy headband to match....nice. she also sent me a sweet tweedy pair of slacks that'll be sure to cause strife amongst the blythes, as they have very few pairs of pants. on top of all that? the sweater and headband match hana's eyes! i re-chipped her when i got her, and so what you sent me is all matching. nifty.

all in all?? what a great swap...thanks you guys! Smiley

i received from the lovely boxofpurls today!! wooo. Smiley

she sent me this neato knitted pouch that my son keeps trying to steal. he takes it and rubs it on his face, and while cute, it's a little goofy. i love the pouch, though. there's a nifty heart on it, and it's a beautiful colour! thank you so much...

    hush the warmth gorky's zygotic mynci
    a pair of brown eyes the pogues
    golden lights the smiths (why, why did you change?Smiley )
    live with me and be my love annie lennox
    when, in disgrace with fortune and men's eyes rufus wainwright
    hitsville, u.k. the clash
    genius kings of leon
    marx & engels belle & sebastian (love them, too!!)

    so real jeff buckley

i got my package from kidkoala today!! let me say, i really loved the tote bag the most...it's so soft and just roomy enough for all my crap, but not so big i lose said crap. hehe...my husband and i played with the paddle ball thingy for about an hour, too...he kept taking it from me to prove how good at it he is. Wink the only bummer was that the barrel magnet was broken....his ear fell off and ran away. we checked that bag and all, but no dice. fooey. he's adorable, even without his ear, though.

my camera is out of commission 'til tomorrow (no batteries Sad), so i'll post pics then.

thank you so much, kidkoala!! the stuff is super swell, and my household is up in arms about the paddle ball!

ETA pics!!
cool-as-can-be paddleball, here modelled by my lovely husband....my cats & 18-month-old can't get enough of it!

super soft and roomy jack skellington tote:

barrel magnet, already on my fridge:

cool zero button!

9  my maiden voyage into the land of wire twisting.... in Beads: Completed Projects by dynamine on: November 10, 2005 01:09:52 PM
i've made plenty of jewelry in the past using string, elastic cords, etc....until now, though, i had never made anything with wire. while i definitely like the look of wire better, boy, is it hard to twist....and twist. and twist some more...over a period of a few days, an hour or so a day, i made this:

(hyperlinked because the photo is gargantuan.)

does anyone have any tips as to how to make the twisting a bit easier? or, at least a bit more uniform?

here is a close up of the connections:

ah, that's very lovely! i heart your little bat...i made a wreath for halloween, too, but i'm thinking i'll probably just keep it up all year. it matches the rest of house fairly well, so why not??
