1  Re: November 2010 Birthday Swap Gallery and Discussion in The Swap Gallery by bhean on: January 10, 2011 05:00:29 PM
My birthday package from Princessblueberry arrived safe and sound today!!!!!  She offered to fulfil my wish for some steampunk-ness and she made me a cool necklace with an antique watchface - very cool!  In addition she included a few extras!  I love the ATC...and the kids are fighting me for the picks.

Here's a closeup of the necklace as well as a sweet Scrabble tile embellished with another clock face.

Thank you so much!!!!

I received my package from Sweetyetevil - and she went beyond the call of duty and fulfilled TWO of my wishes in one package!

The little baggies are lined re-usable sandwich bags for my kiddies.  They love the fabric almost as much I do!  I hate throwing away 4 kids worth of plastic zip-locs!
As well, she sent fantastic old photos that I will use in assemblages and collages and included a CD with those images (as well as others) scanned on it so that I can chop away to my heart's content!

Thank you sooooooo much!

Wow, everyone's packages are so beautiful!!! 

My gift from Maman Tattoo arrived today and I love all my treats!  All in a sweet felt stocking embroidered with a pentacled sun...

I love the beautiful embroidered Hecate for my shrine.  It is perfect since I don't have an image of my Lady - only candles and a chalice.  i love it!  And the kiddies love the felt food - it disappeared the second I took this photo to be cooked up into a tasty feast for their dollies.

This is a funky chenille witches' ladder filled with keys and a piece of black marble to please Hecate.  It sounds like a beautiful wind chime as the keys tinkle against each other....completely surprising.

And last but not least - a lovely hematite wire wrapped ring, which fits perfectly!

Thank you so much Maman Tattoo for a lovely package!  It made my day!

I've finally got some time to post the FANTASTIC placemats that I received from stitch81

Here are all THIRTEEN of them (I've got a big family)

And I love the pretty fabric that she used for the detail - nice and swirly, my fave!

The backs are a lovely burgundy in case I need a change (how did she know that blue and burgundy is one of my fave colour combos for home dec???)

Thank you so much!!! They made the holidays so much nicer!

I received my perfect Waldorf doll kit from poerava this morning.  (I must say that the last week has been hell and this little bit of joy really cheered me up).

Within the bag, there is roving for stuffing the doll and dark roving at the top of the pic for the hair, fabric for the body and clothes as well as all the thread i will need and even a chopstick for poking stuffing into the small parts!

I love it, thank you so much, poerava, this will make my girls happy (and me as well!)

7  Miniature Illumination with Gold Leaf in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by bhean on: August 18, 2008 02:52:43 PM
My son and I took a workshop in medeival illumination this summer.  I made this for a swap and I really wanted to share since I am quite proud of it.  It turned out a lot better than I thought, esp. since I'm more used to pagan subject matter.

It measures 1.5" X 1.5" and the colours are a lot more rich, but as you can tell from the white mat, my photo didn't turn out that well.  My son was impressed by the fact that we were using 23 carat gold - and I must say, it does quite a lot of bling.  I also painted it on calfskin vellum which adds its own richness to the colour which doesn't translate into photos. 

I'm working on a few more pieces and I'll post them when they are done (but these I am keeping  Grin )

I received my PERFECT tiny thing from Bigfatroses today!  Wow, for a woman on her sickbed, she sure can make beautiful things:

I love it so much!  I am running upstairs right now to frame it - the trick is keep my daughter (also named Luna) from stealing it.  Wink

I received my Goddess of Earth and Bone from Tatteredspider and i love her!

I know she had a hard time trying to find a face for her and I think the bone faceplate is a brilliant idea!  In her note, she says:

"This is the Goddess of Earth and Bone.  Those of us made of flesh and bone are decended from her.  She is a faceless Goddess, an amorphous Goddess..."

PERFECT!  I've been drawn to the Crone of late and this will be a wonderful meditative experience.

Thank you so much, Tatteredspider!
