31  Re: Snowflake Shuffle! IYP 8 gallery! in The Swap Gallery by santacruzsugar on: March 05, 2008 03:54:30 PM
I received my package from LilyVanilli yesterday and was speechless with the amount of stuff she sent...and how she was able to shove it all in such a little box!

We chose to do things off of our wish lists from Ongoing Wish Swap and our Wists lists.

Everything all spread out:

She sent me:
- some of my favorite delicious cookies from my favorite bakery (she lives in my hometown and I was having withdrawls). I promptly ate three of them for breakfast.
- some catnip (which my cat is currently rolling around it)
- two tin planter pots for my room
- embroidery supplies (i'm just getting into this craft)
- a super cute tanktop with some flowers embroidered on it
- two pillow cases with embroidered flowers
- some photographs
- three yummy smelling candles

These are my favorite of the photos...I think they are of a mangrove swamp!

The planters, the cookies (butterstars from Gayle's incase your from SC), and the catnip tub.

The pillowcases were a big wish! I just moved and decorating my room in pinks, greens, and blacks. I LOVE them and they go perfectly with my bed and my room!

Lily sent me sooooo many embroidery supplies- two hoops, some fabric stabilizer, a transfer pen, floss bobbins, a floss winder ( I had no idea they had this! all my other flosses are in a pile in a box because I hated winding them by hand!), some needles, and seriously enough embroidery thread in assorted colors to decorate a small country!

AND a super cute teal tank top...inspired by my wist of this post: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=106617.0

thanks so much Lily! You are awsome!!!

I got some scrapbook paper and some embellishments about a week ago from MommyTheMaid! (sorry it took me so long to post!)

this is my favorite...its sepia colored clouds. I've never seen anything like it before.

Thanks so much!!!

33  patchwork bag purse with matching wallet in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by santacruzsugar on: February 27, 2008 08:26:21 PM
Inspired by this bag http://www.2freshpetunias.com/product_info.php?products_id=341 I created my own.

Using this wonderful tutorial https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=187229.0 for inspiration I made a matching wallet.

And I created customized pockets for my pens, cell phone and other little crap.

I used it today and it worked well, except I need to add a snap or a tie to make things a little bit more secure.

Thanks for looking!

I recieved my package from nofury the other day! (**edit- Sorry! entered wrong sender earlier...all credit goes to nofury! ahh...all these screennames are getting me confused!)

She created some great wall art for my room...I just moved and my walls were sad and boring....this is the corner where I put up my folding table for when I craft.

I LOVE this idea and I'm going to do something similar in my living room!

And some kitty toys and some catnip...(i left the catnip bag out of the picture...its looks strangely similar to another substance...)

and here is Gale playing with one of the awsome knitted?/crocheted? fortune cookies.

I also got some tagboard plaques with quotes on them..but the picture seemed to have gotten lost on my computer (so long for the new year's resolution of keeping files organized....)

Thanks so much for everything!

I picked Ezri_B off her list of woodland/gnome/mushroom themed placemats for 6. She received them, and because I'm really bored, I thought I'd post pictures!

The first side is a green foresty print:

The other side is off-white quilted fabric with a mushroom I embroidered:

Close up of mushroom:

And because I also love gnomes, I made some napkin rings:

And the napkin rings double as a convenient cute way to ship the placemats! The box all ready to go, along with a card.

I received two packages today!!!

from gatheredthreads, some nature themed papers...she totally spoiled me with the fat stack! also in there were some die-cut letters and some camping themed stuff!

excuse the kinda wanky picture....photographing paper apparently is a challenge.

AND from dragonflyducky, some super yummy handmade soaps...in scents of apricot-freisa, green tea, blueberry, lemongrass, and orange-lavender. The apricot one is my favorite..but they all smell so good!

37  catnip toys and crazy cat (kinda img fat) in Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects by santacruzsugar on: January 18, 2008 10:30:22 AM
So for the January/February Birthday swap, Snowyangel sent me some catnip filled cat toys...and I thought I'd share those and my cat reactions with you...

First off, my cat Gale, is very mello. She is a great cat and pretty much just sleeps all day....usually on my bed, sometimes in the sun.

I got home last night from work at midnight, and was excited to see a package for me! I cut the corner of the mailing envelope off and it fell on the ground. Now my normally mello cat starts to smell just the paper and starts to tweak out....and manages to run into our indoor clothes rack and gets a clothespin stuck on her face. (it was the funniest thing ever, and don't go hating about how it was mean for me to take a picture...)

Clearly I didn't want her up all night so I put the rest of the envelope away.

This morning, I let her play with them...and I've never seen her so all over the place. It was great! Thanks Snowyangel!!!!

38  fuzzy dice in Completed Projects by santacruzsugar on: December 01, 2007 09:13:25 PM
My friend wanted some fuzzy dice for his jeep but insisted that they did not come in black and yellow. So.....some faux fur, stuffing and yellow felt latter....

I sewed the squares, used normal stuffing, and then hot glued the dots on.

I have no idea what category this should go in, so if its in the wrong spot, please move it!

Thanks for looking, and thanks for any comments!

39  my first embroidery project! in Needlework: Completed Projects by santacruzsugar on: December 01, 2007 09:04:45 PM
This is my first attempt at embroidery! I made this for my mom's birthday (which also happens to be Xmas Day) It's some of Sublime Stitching Veggie's on a canvas bag. Then I found some really cute fabric with sketches of seed packets on it, and lined the inside, plus a pocket! The charm on the zipper is from the boutique store that I work at (yeah for 30% discount!!!)

Thanks for any comments!

I needed a place to hang my keys other than the lame screw that was in the wall already from a previous renter....so one canvas, some pressed leaves from yard, and some finishing nails later....
