11  Re: Ongoing ATC Swap December 2010 in The Swap Gallery by tristitia on: January 12, 2011 04:17:02 AM
Okay, so here are all the cards I've received this month... For some reason, I thought because I had taken pictures of all but the last two cards and resized them etc. that I had also posted to the gallery - I'm so brilliant.  So I apologize to my partners for being so delinquent.  If it hadn't been for our incredibly organized organizer (thanks WideEyedLife!) it would have totally slipped my mind!

First, "Zen Numbers" from SusanAB - thank you!

Then, the beautiful "Crystal Winter" from WideEyedLife - wow, I wish I could draw like this...  There are sparkles, too - I'm not sure how well they show up...

The very cool addition to my clocks theme from Alchamy513 - I love the darkness and gloominess of this - it's how I feel about the passage of time quite often!

And finally, two cool cards from Suereal - the squid is super shiny (what a cheerful squid!) and the other "70's Banquet" is a bonus - I'm sure glad I wasn't old enough at the time to remember if my mother tried to feed me stuff like this in the 70's - liver in lemon sauce, wow...

Thanks everyone - and again, I'm sorry that it took me soooo long to post pics - certainly not because I didn't love the cards!

Finally gettings pics in the gallery of the awesome package I got from tankgrl! 
First, the outside of the journal - handbound in leather... I wish I could do something like this:

Some of my favorite pages:

A great baby blanket for my Thing 2 to-be:

And some cool extras - some bag patterns and ephemera for my papercrafting addiction:

Thank you so much!  I love everything Smiley

I received a wonderful package from m88888 on Thursday - I was really in awe, I love everything!

First, a quilt!  I'm amazed by all you ladies that can quilt, I want to learn, but I'm sooooo slow in cutting out the pieces that it would take me years to make a lap quilt...  She used materials that are recycled or out of her stash, and it matches my living room colors amazingly well (I would take a pic of the room to prove it, but it's a mess!)

She also made a very cool tree potholder with the same fabrics, I love it as well (I decided that my lazy cat was perfect to prop up the stuff to photograph it - he's such a slug that he didn't even move as I arranged and rearranged the photo...)

Next, three crocheted dishcloths, a book (looks interesting!), a bird necklace, and mmmmm - chocolate!

Finally, some really cool nature photos - I wish I could take good pictures!

Look at that snake!  I hope you used super-zoom to get that close!!!

I got the second part of my package from igobylorib today, and I LOVE it!
It's a painting based on one I had in my wists - but better.  My picture really isn't so good, the colors are much more beautiful, and some of the little circles are shiny!
I am going to hang it in my living room!

I got my last (*sniff*) package from igobylorib last week, but my computer has been acting funny - it keeps freezing up!  It stayed on all night last night (on the craftster page, so it looks like i've been on for 24 hours!) so I'm racing to get the pics posted...

She sent a bunch of fun stuff for me to use in my paper/altered art projects, a vintage vegetarian cookbook (these are always the most fun!), some lovely vintage sheet material (which I collect), a soothing soap, some spices (I'm always looking for new ways to make my food super spicy!), and GNOMES!

What a great partner.  She did such a fantastic job of picking stuff that really fit me!
Thanks again, Lori!

I received a beautiful page last week from Banga...
I don't know which I like better, the front or the back!

Both are wonderful - thank you!

I got three really awsome batts yesterday from Frankierevolover:

I already spun the purple one (will post pics when they're all done) and it was great fun - at first it was hard until I got the hang of keeping all the lumps and chunks together, but the resulting yarn is so cool.  I plan to spin them all and make some very unique catch-all type thingies for my desk at work.

I've got two questions, Frankie:  Where did you find all the bright, chunky wool?  and how did you card it so that it all held together but didn't seem to get all pressed into the teeth of the carder and blended together?  However you did it, I love them!

I can't wait to see how those spin up!

I also couldn't wait to spin my stuff - I carded a bit of everything together last night, and threw in a bit of blue glitz I had, and spun the resulting batts today, with a little magenta fun fur yarn thrown in just b/c it matched the bright silk noil...  I spun it into thick/thin singles and let the turquoise thread wrap, then felted it and ran it back through the wheel to take out most of the twist - this is some seriously soft yarn!

I think it will soon become a hat, with the yo-yo's sewn on  Smiley

Peachymanaangel and I had incredible timing - I received her package today, too!

Different fibers - merino, alpaca, soysilk, silk noil, and angora, and adorable fabric yo-yo's - all beautifully dyed and perfectly coordinated for me to card.
And the fluffy blue in the bottom that lost it's label is:

I can't wait to card it up - I've got plans already!

I'm glad you liked the batts I sent, Peachy - I was afraid the green ones were getting too crazy, so I couldn't help but spin up a tiny sample, which is what I wrapped around the one:

It reminded me of a field of flowers...
