211  Re: Fill A Coin Purse Swap ROUND 6! in The Swap Gallery by RubyTuesday on: August 11, 2006 03:29:32 AM
Right, at last, I've managed to get the pictures here!

Here's the fantastic parcel i received from Miss_Mermaid_Strikes_Back :

Firstly, the little purse, it's sewn from wonderful batik fabric (I think that's how it's spelt!) and is lined in a really funky fabric with a circles design :-)  the contents of the purse are just amazing! I couldn't beleive it, there are mini sharpies ( great after hearing about them on here but not owning any..until now!) a lip balm,  some super cool lightsticks ( can't wait to try those out! and heaps of candy....some of which i sampled beore i took pictures  Shocked

an absolutely gorgeous flower pendant, wonderful applique dragonflies,  a very pretty pair of earrings and a packet of cute buttons

Thank you so much Miss_Mermaid, You've been a fantastic swap partner  Kiss I can only hope that my parcel puts as big a  smile on your face as yours did mine! Smiley

212  Re: Altoid tin theme swap Round 2 Gallery. in The Swap Gallery by RubyTuesday on: August 02, 2006 02:19:20 PM
Sorry I can't be an angel, I haven't managed to lay my hands on another suitable tin .. yet but off topic/
Woo, i just found my first altoid tin!!  - don't laugh! - I live in the country where they make the little blighters but I can't buy them here - how daft is that?!

I asked my mum if she had any old buttons she didn't want because I want to have a go at making a tote with some on.  Yesterday she turned up with a big tin of buttons and in there was a small tin, I couldn't read what it had on the lid because someone had stuck a paracetamol label on the front, which was really cute... but being able to read '...ids' i couldn't help but peel the label off and there was my first and probably last British sold altoid tin, i've no idea how old it is, when I opened it up it was full of button's from shoes, old clothes buttons and even what looks to be a Roman coin Grin

Sorry if I've bored you all but I just can't resist little old treasures, this is certainly one little tin I won't be decorating! -Good ol' mum for hoarding!!

Hey, what a lot of fab jewellery! - there are so many talented craftsters swapping on here  Smiley

I received from onthinice  Grin It felt like christmas opening the box!  Inside I was thrilled to find a mixed paper journal, beautiful stitch markers, a surprise swap journal and packets of koolaid!! Thank you onthinice! I just love this swap  Roll Eyes

The journals are just gorgeous :-) they are so professional, the mixed paper is wonderful and the beads on the cover really set it off :-) it's the first journal i've seen and it's even nicer than i imagined!  and i hadn't even listed a swap journal because i thought they must be so time consuming to make and i didn't want to be too greedy, - you must be telapathic onthinice!!

These stitch markers are great, just what i needed, I'll have to make a few more amigurumi to try them out :-)

Thank you very much onthinice  Kiss .. it's much appreciated!

wow those all look great, I didn't realise the shrines were so dinky, it's cool, and i love that elephant, and the one listed earleir with the piercings!! The zip purse is so effective, i've only ever seen them on this site and i want to have a go at making one :-)

...After posting my 3/5 on here the next day the other 2 arrived!! I really must learn to be more patient!

I received the hemp cloth from Javastain, thank you :-) ..I can't wait to get exfoliating with it and some yummy soap

And a grgeous purple necklace from princessblueberry, thank you :-) it must have taken hours to do all the seed bead work, it looks great on :-)

Handspun yarn from Bitibis, thank you, it's just so soft and the colours are fabulous, they remind me of a sea shell, so i think i might make a nautie https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=16743022.0 :-) .. it's that or a little scarf for me!
A sea themed collage from Devilninny, thank you, I love the sea and everytime i look at the collage I imagine the waves crashing in :-)
and a set of cute little mini cards from NightOwl, Thank you, they are so cute and the little envelopes are so sweet too, I can't wait to use them :-)

you're welcome Mieka  Grin, hope you like the polar pals!!

...all you need to learn to do is 'single crochet' which is honestly the easiest stitch in the world!!
here's a link to instructions:http://crochet.about.com/library/bl_singlecrochet.htm .. to learn with it's best to use a light coloured chunky yarn, and a large crochet hook,   ...and if you get stuck just message me and i'll try and help :-)
