1  Re: Tree swap 2nd Round, The Real Deal Gallery in The Swap Gallery by geek_patrol on: May 18, 2006 07:37:30 PM
Cute stuff so far you guys!  I got all my stuff from TessTessi finally.  She had to send it out in 2 waves.  Smiley

First off we have this absolutely awesome handsewn pillow:

And here it is stylin' on my corduroy Ikea couch:

I really love the way it matches with the furniture and pillows I already have!  The other furniture in the room is a brown plaid armchair, and the pillow looks right at home on that too.   The tree print is something that she received in the other tree swap.  Smiley

Next we have the BAG OF FABULOUSNESS!:

It's really heavy and durable, and the lining fabric matches one of the fabric strips on my pillow.  It really looks great and professional!  I would have taken a pic of me wearing it so you can see how big it is (it is quite large), but my camera battery was dying so I had to just snap some pics really quick.  It's got a pocket on the inside too.  I love it.   Grin

I also got a cute little journal with a tree branch pattern on the cover, and 3 little boxes of herb starters (mini pot, dirt coin, seeds).

I received a package from Goldfishgirl yesterday and it was chock full of Potter-y goodness!

First we have a picture of the cute t-shirt and Gryffindor wrist cuff (I had a pic where I was smiling, but it was blurry :/):

Next up, my Animagus Hat.  Now I too can look like Sirius Black!  Hee hee. Smiley  :

An adorable knitted Pigwidgeon wearing a Gryffindor scarf!:

I also got a beaded bracelet in Gryffindor colors, and a really awesome and sweet tote bag that has Moony and Padfoot on it.  The picture of the bag didn't come out, so I'll take a new one soon and post later.  Thanks so much for all the stuff!!

Oh my gosh all y'all, Modus Operandi's package got to me today and I am all a-twitter.  Get ready to be jealous of my awesome stuff!!

She sent me:

A hand-painted, beaded necklace.  This is perfect because I've been looking for a good pendant necklace and have been unable to find one I like:

An adorable little hand-painted box, about 3x3 inches.  Look at the detail!:

A fun hand-painted wrist purse:

And finally, a stunning photo and picture frame.  She both decorated the frame and took the photo!  For an idea of size, it is about 11x14 inches:

Thank you so much!  I love every bit of it.  Smiley  Now I just have to make sure I live up to all this stuff!  *huggles her swag*

4  rose tree sculpture in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by geek_patrol on: March 08, 2006 09:57:55 AM
I made this yesterday.  Didn't quite know what category it fit it, so misc it is!

the money shot

different angle

closeup of the nest

next to a lighter for size reference

I made the tree, nest, and eggs from white sculpy.  Unfortunately the branches drooped in the oven, so I had to break them off and reattach at different angles with wire and superglue.  I stuck my fingers together a lot!!  The flowers were some little silk flowers with wire stems that I wrapped around the branches and also glued.  The whole thing was painted with acrylics.  I really like it!  It's sitting out on the bookshelf in the living room now, and goes very nicely sitting next to a cross stitch of a peacock that I did  (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=74998).

5  peacock cross stitch in Needlework: Completed Projects by geek_patrol on: January 19, 2006 05:16:58 PM
Finally, after years of on-and-off work (literally) I have finished my first full-sized cross stitch!  I embroidered the date as 2005 because I finished up everything except for a tiny part back in November.  I ran out of one color, and apparently the company that makes this cross stitch kit does not use DMC floss, so I was SOL for a little while.  It turns out their website will send you more if you run out though!  This is the "beautiful bird" from Dimensions.  I'm sure you've seen it at your local craft store.  Wink

Here is a closeup of it.  Click here to see the whole thing!:  http://i12.photobucket.com/albums/a219/ehawxhurst/crafty/peacock.jpg

6  Re: Please post your best costume... in Halloween Costumes by geek_patrol on: December 11, 2005 12:40:18 AM
A few years ago I made myself a Sailor Jupiter costume from the anime Sailor Moon.  It's definitely my favorite costume EVER, but sadly it got destroyed due to negligence.  ;P  (lost pieces, crumpled pieces, etc)

I made a tut for the costume for my old Sailormoon page which has not been updated since 2001, but the tut is still there.  Smiley
