1  Re: I love Bicycles! Swap Gallery! in The Swap Gallery by cindy_23492 on: March 20, 2008 09:00:31 AM
I received my package from boywonder today!

A bike-stenciled tote, and 7 1" pinback buttons. One of the things I asked for was a stenciled tote, and I always love having more 1" buttons Smiley

4 gorgeous bike illustration cards. I think they might be my favourite part of the package.

Magnets, bike reflectors, and a piece of art. Yay for mountain bikes!

Stickers and adress labels abound (with my address blocked out by stars Smiley, and the containers they came in. The green one I will probably use to put my subway card and tickets in, and the red one gave me a pleasant whiff of bubble gum  Cheesy

All in all, this package was awesome and made my day  Grin
Thank you so much Joel!

Pictures, finally!
Here is the great package I received from AsphaltQueen:

A felt bead kit, which is what she originally claimed me for. Can't wait to use it Cheesy

Mmmmm yarnnnnn....there's wool silk blend, alpaca, bulky wool, and recycled sari!

The surprise - a mixed-paper floppy disc notepad, for the inner geek in all of us Smiley And a card she drew, similar to one on my wists - a tree of hearts.

Thank you so much, I love it all!

I got some 1" buttons from CrossStitchinMomma today, and there was a pretty funny misunderstanding re: pinback buttons vs. buttons that fasten clothing.

Anyhoo, I still could always use the second type of buttons. So thanks Smiley

4  Blue Eyes. in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by cindy_23492 on: October 22, 2007 06:04:02 PM
I did this for art class last year - it was pretty much a do-what-you-like painting thing. It took me a long time to finish, because I wanted to get the texture just right.
It is acrylic on canvas, about 20" x 15.5". The red "mouth" part is electrical tape.

Inspiration: http://www.flickr.com/photos/heatherica/60969674/. The original idea was to use words to form a mouth, which would say "Let me speak for myself", but that was too tiny to do right, so I used tape in the end to convey censorship, especially of women.

I got my Subversive cross-stitches last Friday from CrossStitchinMomma. She sent early, and did very neat stitchwork. I got both Beeyatch and Bite Me Smiley

I'm going to find frames for them.

I got 2 OWS25 packages today!

Stenciling kit from dooney: she sent instructions (with her own notes/tips), freezer paper, brushes, an exacto knite, fabric medium, acrylic paint, and fabric paint. Now I've got everything I need, and can't wait to try it out!

Wisty surprises from dragonflyducky: she sent a Jar of Whimsies and a cupcake pincushion. I haven't taken everything out from the Jar to look over, but I see some great stuff already!

Thank you both so much!

Here's the cotton yarn I received from frenchnewwave today:

She sent me two balls of red (which I needed for a project) and three other colourways. I particularly like the top middle one, "natural stripes". She wrote her note on a great collaged tag, which I'm going to save for future collage/ATCs work Smiley

I got my package from librarylolita yesterday  Grin  She sent a cool tote bag and 5 1" buttons. I really love the fact that she made it from recycled materials.

The clear paint is actually glow-in-the-dark!

The detail where the straps are attached - a little heart and a bow.

Buttons: lyrics from "1234" by Feist, Feist herself, the Arctic Monkeys, lyrics from "Please please please" by Fiona Apple, and the New Pornographers

Brenna actually sent TWO more packages besides this main one, one of which should be here any day now. I love everything so far; thank you!

And a blurry action-shot:

Thank you Smiley
