1  Re: Bento Swap Round 5 Gallery! in The Swap Gallery by arcadian green on: August 21, 2012 02:13:42 PM
I received my package yesterday!

First for the crafted items I received an awesome bento bag with pirate ship. I really really love this!  Smiley  It also came with a matching cloth napkin.

Some cute little veggie cutters or cheese or fruit or whatever I feel like making fancy! I look forward to using these to jazz up my lunches a bit.

I also received sauce containers, onigiri molds and cute little punches.

Thank you Calabaza... I love everything! I can't wait to make some cute lunches soon.

I received my Angel package from Gotgrey this week.  She works fast!! My pictures are a bit blurry but I used my old camera since it was charged up and it didn't want to focus.  Now for the goodies:

A turtle stuffie based on Crush from Finding Nemo. He was the first thing I saw when I opened the box and I am amazed at how well designed he is.   Smiley

Next was a Disney princess decorated box full of goodies.  An Alice in Wonderland doll, Pluto figurine, two hair bows, skull necklace and earrings, skull erasers, mickey barrettes, Owl from Bambi and clay turtle necklace.

I also received this turtle wall art. It's made with clay and sea shells and reminds me of a little underwater coral reef for my wall.

Really amazing Crush painting. This picture doesn't do it justice but it's really awesome.

Last of all I received a turtle mug rug (small red shelled turtle) and a taggie turtle for my son (big purple shelled turtle).  My son saw the taggie turtle right away and knew what he was!  I decorated his nursery in a pond theme so he has a lot of turtle toys and he says "Turddle" when he sees them.   Smiley

I was in a hurry and forgot to post the rest of the paintings I received! Sorry for the blurry pic.... I received paintings of Jack & Sally, Sully, Boo, Mickey and Alice.   Smiley

Thank you Gotgrey for the great package and for being my swap angel!

3  Squirt Turtle Cupcakes in Dessert by arcadian green on: September 25, 2011 01:11:52 PM
I saw these cupcakes on Pinterest and knew I had to make them.  It was time consuming to make the turtles out of the gummy candy but they still turned out decent.  Smiley  

Here's the directions I followed to make the cupcakes:

I ran out of gummy candy and had a few plain cupcakes...

Thanks for looking!!

I'm finally getting around to posting my package!  Here is what I received from eeyore_witch:

First the crafted items. She stenciled some super cute shirts and jacket for my son. I really love them.  Smiley She also sent two bibs.

I love this little skull hoodie and I can't wait until my little one is big enough to wear it! My husband was really impressed with it too!

Now on to the yummy snack. First I received four different kinds of Chips. Miss Vickies Jalapeno (we actually get these here), Miss Vickies Sweet Chili and Sour Cream (I've never seen these and can't wait to try them!), Old Dutch Mexican chili (yummy) and Old Dutch Ketchup (I think these will be for lunch tomorrow!).

Now the candy! I'm surprised I haven't eaten everything yet but I've controlled myself.  Smiley  She sent two Hello Kitty candies, Kinder Eggs, Smarties, Bounty, Aero (this one melted because the mailman left my package on the porch!), maynards gummies, chocolate loonies coins, Rockets (these look like the giant version of what we call smarties), and pirate stickers!  We have nerds, runts and sweettarts here but I'll still eat them all! Plus I don't think I've seen peach flavored runts before!


Maple syrup, maple butter and a maple flavored sucker! I've never had maple butter before so I'm excited to try it out but haven't had a chance yet.

Thank you eeyore_witch for a great swap. I really loved everything and would definitely participate in this swap again!  Smiley

Here is my awesome package from H00lie!

First I'll start with the crafted items.  She made me this cute purple Hello Kitty purse. This is the first thing she has ever sewn and I think it looks awesome! I would have never known it was her first time sewing because it's so well done.  Smiley  The purple flower button is adorable and I can't wait to use it!  Cheesy

Decorated Chopsticks.  Each one is inspired by different one of my favortie characters. White, pink and black for Kuromi. White and red for Hello Kitty. Black, white and red for Chococat.  I think these are really cute and I'll try to get a better picture up of them.

Here is a close-up of the chopsticks. I was running out of daylight but you can still see the pretty beads on top!

A cute Pandapple Cross stitch that I plan on hanging up in my craft room!

A lot of extras! Hello Kitty socks which I've been wanting to order some but haven't gotten around to! A Hello Kitty calender, Hello Kitty notepads, Hello Kitty silly bandz, jelly beans, Hot Tamales (my favorite candy!) a cute little collectible figure and Hello Kitty Pretzels!  I love it all!! Smiley

A close-up of the pretzels because I thought they were cute.  Only a few made it through the mail in tact.

A close up of the Hello Kitty collectible "World Adventures" figure.  She is tiny and super cute!  I want all of them now!

I think I probably just over used the word "cute" but it's a Hello Kitty Swap so how can you not?! Thank you H00lie I really loved everything and this swap was fun.  I can't wait for another round!  Smiley

My mini gallery of everything I received from lacey0828....

Day 13
Today I received a pumpkin bucket full of candy, cute little pumpkins also full of candy and some tootsie pop ghosts. I may or may not have eaten most of the candy already.  Lips sealed

Day 12
12 Halloween ornaments. I left them in the little votive holders since a few of them broke during shipping. I'm thinking I need a little black tree to hang these on!

Day 11
Halloween scrapbook paper, halloween stickers, some cute charms, fall leaves and some sparkly yarn(I like the black and blue a lot). Plus some turtle stickers! I love turtles.

Day 10
Kitchen goodies! I received 3 potholders, an apron, two dishtowels and 4 cloth napkins(which I needed more!) all in matching cute fabric. I really look forward to using everything!

Picture of the apron. I would model it but my husband isn't around to take my pic.  Smiley

Day 9
Halloween ghosts and a bat cat toys for my cat.

They are filled with catnip so he's all over them. It was hard to get a picture because Oscar was sitting on them and trying to hide them from me.  Smiley

Day 8
A box mix for cupcakes, a box mix of brownies, icing, cupcake liners, sprinkles, make your own skeleton necklaces kit and a skull ice cube tray. I love everything and look forward to using it this upcoming weekend!

Day 7
Two bags, one a really awesome skull fabric that I love and the other is made from a halloween t-shirt. Also a supply of reusable snack bags!

I also received two signs off my wists, a cute little shadowbox and some really neat fingers and part of a hand. I spent forever looking at how realistic the hands are which made them look almost real and creepy.  Smiley

Day 6
Fabric Pumpkins! I never expected to get this many! These are going to stay up for Halloween and Thanksgiving.

Day 5
Five cute little decorated flower pots. 

Day 4
Four painted plates. I really like these and wish I could have gotten a better picture.

Day 3
A Halloween/Fall wreath that is 3-in-1 which is pretty cool. They can be taken apart and used each as one wreath or left all together. I'm thinking I'll leave them together right now. There were little skulls in the bags which I assume were supposed to be part of the skull wreath but I can fix that with my hot glue gun.  Wink

Day 2
Two Halloween pillows. One is turned around so you can see the fabric on the back. I love them!

Day 1
First of all sorry for the wrinkly pictures but I was in a hurry.  Wink  Wow... my partner made me a quilt! I have two quilted wall hangings my mom made me years ago but this is the first quilt I have that is big! I can't even imagine how much time my partner put into this. I really appreciate this a lot!

Thank you lacey0828!! This was a fun swap and I really love everything you sent!

I received my package today! I checked the mail and found only a letter but... as I was walking back to the house I noticed the mailman had tried to hide my package on the corner of the porch. Sneaky sneaky!  Wink

Here is what I received from tattooedcrafter:

A Turtle Stocking! This is a looonnggg stocking. Stuffed full of goodies.  Smiley

Christmas mugs, hot chocolate, a pincushion from my wists, cute little turtles also from my wists. Turtle tape measure!!  I've been needing another tape measure since just one doesn't cut it for me anymore. I really wanted one of these and now I have one! I spent about 5 minutes playing with it.  Smiley  I love the turtles.

Skullies and adorable turtles ornaments. Tons of them... I kept pulling more and more out of the stocking!

Thanks tattooedcrafter!   Smiley

10  Re: Fabric Curlers *w/tutorial link **UPDATED pics of outcome p.1 ***AFTER WORK p.5 in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by arcadian green on: November 19, 2008 12:00:59 PM
Here are the curlers I made.... I didn't follow the directions exactly and I didn't really try hard to make my stitches nice and pretty.  Grin  This was also my first time making buttonholes. I can't find my sewing machine guide so I had to wing it. I think I can do better next time.

I made a total of 20 curlers and used all of them the first time. The second time I put the curlers in (this last weekend) I only used 12. I was too lazy to put them all in.

Here is the results when I took them out at 8:30am

By 10 they had straightened out a bit but not too bad. I ended up brushing them out because the top of my hair looked all wonky.   Grin
