1  Re: The Book-Lovers Swap Gallery! in The Swap Gallery by Cherith on: October 28, 2008 04:05:26 PM
I got my package from tinkerbella over the weekend. 

This great bag - which is standing up because I'm already using it.  Smiley

And this great book box which has my favorite poem, "When We Two Parted" by Lord Byron.  She also included two different length book marks and a cool red button bracelet. 

I love it all!

I got such a stuffed box from hippiejo74.  Here's a few pictures.

The Knit101 book I've wanted forever.

She sent two other books, but I've just realized I didn't get them in a picture. They were AlterNation and the Crafster guide to Nifty, Thrifty and Kitchy Crafts.  Smiley

And all the yarn and beads:

I think two skeins got left in the box when I took this, but needless to say it was a ton of yarn and beads. 

The whole box was so stuffed, I'm not even sure how she got all this stuff in there.  Thanks so much hippiejo!!

Wow, there's some really great stuff here.  I love those tree pendants.  Hollie, I'm glad you liked your tin - and I hope those necklaces are a good length, it's always hard to judge size for someone else.  Smiley 

Here's the stuff that dustmite sent me.  She used my black and red colors as well as skulls.  I love it.

Top and bottom of the box.

Foam skulls - one of them on a necklace.

This is the knitted case that the tin came in.

A set of holographic earrings and a ring made with guitar picks.

A set of magnets

And some stitch markers all black and red.  Smiley

And a little bit of the 10th doctor thrown in for good measure.  Smiley

4  My Coat Rack Tree in Winter Holidays by Cherith on: November 23, 2007 07:33:46 PM

See here, my dollar store christmas decorations which wrapped around a coat rack make a fine looking coat rack tree.

Have animals?  This tree is perfect to keep cats and dogs out of the ornaments on the tree, because the lowest round is at only nose level for my black lab pup.  Everything below that is pretty plain, but the better to keep the animals out of things.  The only thing I'm lacking (besides a better bookcase - please stacks 'o books) is a good tree skirt to go around the bottom (not pictured), and we're set for presents.

The story of the coat rack tree comes from when I was a little girl and after my parents were divorced.  My dad lived alone and didn't have the money to spend on a tree, so we took our coat rack, wrapped it in lights and ornaments, and hence the coat rack tree was born.  Now, I don't see the point in buying a big old tree for the animals to tear up, so the husband and I haven't had anything but the little two-footers for a few years now.  This year, I decided to revive coat rack tree Christmas. 

The dollar store was my friend.  Everything on the tree was a dollar, with the exception of the very fine doggie yearly ornaments (from a friend) and the lights which were five dollars at the dollar store. Go figure.  Still I'm pretty proud of the whole thing.

5  "Super" ATCs (updated!) in Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) by Cherith on: July 09, 2007 12:51:43 PM
These are my first attempts at ATCs!  Hope you like them!  I think I love the Superman one just a bit more, but I'm pretty happy with them both.  Smiley

They're both raised because they were done on separate paper and then glued to the card.  I used Prismacolor markers & colored pencil, india ink marker, and gel pens to make them. 

ETA: I thought I try again at another Superman style.  I think I like this one better than the first.

I'm late on posting pictures, but it works out well, since I received my second package today!

First, pictures of the great embroidery package that flanman put together for me!  I'm super-excited about getting started.

Then there's the completely awesome tote bag package that Tanza put together.  She picked the perfect colors for me, as well as took an extra step to embroider some really cook stuff on the fabric for me.  I can't wait to put a bag together!!

Thanks so much to you both!!
