11  Re: Tea Time Gallery in The Swap Gallery by Dorkariffic on: February 12, 2007 02:56:58 PM
I received today! HOORAY! Cheesy kcfirecracker totally spoiled me.

(Almost) everything together:
- a wonderful pillow in my favorite color combination (purple on the front, and green on the back)
- a packet of cool candles - I've never seen any quite like this before, LOTS of tea (both in teabags and loose tea, so I can use my new infuser)
- pretty tins that she decorated
- YUMMY chocolate shortbread cookies, and
- postcards/stickers of the Mooninites.
I think it's fantastic that she sent me the Mooninites postcards, especially since she sent them before the whole fiasco with the ads in Boston, my neighboring city. (If you don't know what that was about, you can read about it here. Personally, I find the whole thing hilarious.)
Also, in the bottom of the box was a lid with a cute little cartoon monkey on it. I like it, but I'm slightly confused, since there was nothing for the lid to go to - I'm worried that kcfirecracker's teapot is missing a lid now. Huh

The pillow has a great Alice in Wonderland image on it, stamped (?) in two different places on the pillow. I love the Queen of Hearts!

And here you can see a better shot of the tins, and the BEST shoes ever! I absolutely love cloth shoes like these, and I think the teacups and "hat tag" on these are just incredible. I had to take the shoes off to take the picture - I put them on as soon as I opened the box! They're a little bit looser than most of my shoes, but not loose enough to fall off, so that's actually perfect - this way, I can wear them with thick socks so I can still wear cloth shoes in the winter! (As long as it's not snowy.  Lips sealed)

The teas she sent me are Spiced Tea Chai, Mulling spices, Orange Pekoe, Black Vanilla, white rose tea, peppermint rose tea, hibiscus and herbs, and lichee black tea. I don't know which to try first!

I just realized that I don't have pictures of everything, so I'll post what I have now, and then add the other pictures to this post when I get them.

I was really amused when I came downstairs and saw my package, because the box Gomerriffic used to send it all in was a Frosted Mini-Wheats box. What amused me even more was the note on top when I opened it:

If you can't see it, it says "Great box, huh??"

She made me the most AMAZING BAG ever:

It's a black messenger-style bag with a big Golden Snitch on the flap - there's so much detail on the Snitch, it's fantastic. I'll try and see if I can get a good detail shot of it.
I got the package while I was packing to go to my boyfriend's house, so I immediately moved everything from my backpack into this bag.
Also in this picture, you can see the awesome tigerlily choker that she made me, which I put on immediately. It's fantastic, and I don't know how she knew to make it (I can't find it on my own wists! lol). Tigerlilies are my favorite flowers, ever. And it's on a pin, so I can take it off the choker and wear it as a corsage for the dance! Cheesy

The inside of the bag is fantastic, too: the lining is an awesome gold-and-black plaid (Hufflepuff colors! Yay!) and she made a fantastic appliqué for it - look familiar, anyone?  Grin The badger's scarf is made of a strip of the lining fabric!
And she sent me tea! *love!* Organic Mango Green tea, (which I brought to work with me yesterday, and it saved my sanity,) and Black Raspberry. I can't wait to try that one.

She also sent me a matching choker and bracelet set of beaded hemp, (which is just beautiful, and matches one of my favorite shirts perfectly,) a hemp choker that she bought for my boy, Tom, (he loves it!) and, cutest of all, a crocheted hedgehog and a mushroom for him to hide in. They're so well-made, and cute!
She said in her note that the hedgehog was in place of Capt. Jack Sparrow, since she couldn't send him to me. Cheesy So guess what I named my new hedgie?
When I saw the hedgehog, I cracked up. I had been on the phone with Tom when the box came in, and he said "Maybe someone sent you a hedgehog!" AND SHE DID!  Grin

And now, I'm finally getting around to posting pictures of what I received!  Cheesy Embarrassed

"I Am Beautiful" picture frame, yellow crayon-shaped comb and mirror set, pendant, "I [heart] ME" and "Pretty me" keychains/pendants.
Awesome purple sparkly travel-size hairbrush not pictured, since it went pretty much directly into my travel bag. I loooove it, though!

My new favorite T-shirt! "SMALL BUT FIESTY". It's perfect. Thank you KraftyKT!

And a couple of pictures of what I sent to KraftyKT:

Most of what I sent: A torso-shaped bath fizz that I bought, a hand-painted trinket box, a belt ("A waist is a terrible thing to mind"), and two knitted headbands.

The inside of the box: "A face without freckles is like / a night without stars."

A few Shrinky-Dink charms I made, "KT Krafty" "lovely" "beautiful" "radiant" and "If the definition of beauty gets any thniner, no one will fit." (Quarter for size comparison.)

 Cheesy Hooraaaaay! I got my angel package from Knit_core today! Everything ROCKS!

First off, it came with a hilarious and appropriate card. The front has a man and a woman holding hands in front of a Christmas tree.
MAN: I can't imagine spending Christmas without you, darling.
WOMAN: You'll never have to, dear.
(inside) I accidently hot-glued our hands together while crafting those do-it-yourself decorations.

I got the purple cabled newsboy hat that I've been wanting since I first saw the pattern, and which I put on immediately. Grin

I also got a knitted cuff (Perdita from Knitty) that fits me perfectly, and is even prettier in person than in the picture on my wists!

And the buttons on it are awesome!

I also got two chocolate bars; Holiday Hell ("...take the 'ho' out of holiday and the vacate back into vacation with 3.5 oz (100g) of all natural premium milk chocolate."), and Kahlua and Cream. Both of them smell heavenly, and taste even better!

And, because I am so obviously a dork:

The Golden Snitch! XD I seriously squealed when I saw this! Both of the yarns are metallic and shimmery, and the wings are just stiff enough that I can position them and they'll stay!

I'm planning to make myself a Hufflepuff Seeker costume, and this'll definitely come with me for it. (Here I am with my WIP robe, having just caught the Snitch and won the match, obvz.)  Cheesy
Pardon my weird expression. I don't photograph well.

FrogPuddle, you got AWESOME stuff!

And now, for your viewing pleasure, (and so naelany will stop bugging me <3,) THE ORNAMENTS!

I was really excited to see today's ornament, because it was behind Luna Lovegood - and it was exactly what I hoped it would be!

The Quibbler!

These ones are the first seven ornaments I got.

The "blueberry cheesecake" jellybean, with a US quarter for comparison.


The Basilisk fang, which is simply awesome

Scabbers! <3! I love his little whiskers!

Alright! Picture time!

Unfortunately, this is the clearest picture we managed to get of the two of us. I'm in a really weird position, because I'm the one holding the camera, lol.

The scarf I'm wearing, as well as the radish earrings, are made by SidekickFancy. The scarf is INCREDIBLY soft, and really, really long. When it's wrapped around my neck once, the ends still come down to my knees. <3

I've been wanting radish earrings for such a long time.  Grin

I also got a snowglobe, with a fabulous picture of Ginny, and a box made out of a book, painted with the hufflepuff colors and topped with my initials!

And what's even better?

The book was stuffed with candy! A box of Bertie Bott's Beans, a bag of Drooble's Best Blowing Gum, two sticks of rock candy, and tons of taffy!
Currently, there is one piece each of the taffy and rock candy left, and I had two pieces of gum last night, which (as Fancy warned me it would) turned my entire mouth blue.  Cheesy I haven't tried the jellybeans yet, because I'm scared of the yucky flavors.  Embarrassed

I also got a little yellow telescope-type-thing, a shrinky-dink snitch, which I'll either use as a keychain or a zipper pull, one of Hagrid's rock cakes (it's really a funny-looking super-bounce ball), a big glow-in-the-dark star, and a Shrinky-dink version of my Hufflepuff Seeker icon! <3 <3 <3
I was playing around with the telescope and star the other night, pretending I was in Astronomy class.

Fancy made me the most fabulous shirt:

"Badgers Are Friends, Not Food"  Cheesy It combines Harry Potter, Finding Nemo, and vegetarianism, lol. How could I not love it?!

And, most amazing of all, the advent calendar:

(Yeah, um, ignore the dishes in the foreground. The restaurant's tables aren't very big. The poor waitress had to keep trying to find space to put our orders down among all the swap stuff.)
She made me a wooden advent calendar with a painting of Hagrid, Ginny and Harry (holding hands), Luna, Dumbledore, Ron and Hermione (also holding hands), and Fred and George, standing in front of a Christmas tree, with lots of floating candles around.
And inside each of the compartments is a little ornament! (Or at least, I think they're all ornaments. I've been a good girl, and I've only opened the ones I should, lol.)

So far, I've gotten:
Dec 1 - the Sorting Hat
Dec 2 - Aragog (/an acromantula)
Dec 3 - a crown with a "W" (because Weasley Is Our King!)
Dec 4 - a blue Bertie Bott's Bean (I've decided it's blueberry cheescake flavored.)
I bought myself a little fake tree yesterday so that I could put them up.

Pictures of the ornaments will come later, as I get more.
Thank you, Fancy!

I received from Cinderly today! This package was so amazing. According to her letter, she went by the theme of Pirates and Faeries - an EXCELLENT choice, I must say.  Grin

First off, my Pirate booty:

-A MARVELLOUS patchwork pouch! The picture doesn't do it justice. The fabrics are so fabulous and soft, and oh! It's wonderful! And it's long, so I don't have to worry about whether my things will fit in it or not.
-A piratey-red shirt that says "I am disinclined to acquiesce to your request."  Cheesy
-Several bags of cookies, with recipes, so I can check the ingredients, and make more for myself later! Some of them are chocolate chip, and others are sugar cookies frosted to look like pirate flags! I had to fight my family off - almost literally! - to keep them from devouring these.

She also sent me an AWESOME shirt with a silvery silhouette of Tinkerbell! (With whom I am obsessed.) Seriously, this is my fifth Tink shirt, sixth if you count my pajama top. Embarrassed

And I think it's my favorite of all the ones I have.

Inside my pirate pouch was a suprise!

Beautiful handmade notecards, all with Shakespeare quotes! (Properly notated, too! *swoon*) And, not pictured, envelopes to go with them. I'm not sure if I could ever send these, though, I want to keep them!

It seems like Cinderly anticipated that, though, because she also sent me an amazing card-crafting kit!

The picture came out blurry, but it includes:
-A 'collage pad' of handmade paper in blues and purples
-A great homemade instructional guide: 'Quote Cards 101' and 'Inspiration Gallery'. VERY well illustrated - I will be getting a LOT of use out of this!
-A stack of textured, self-adhesive cardstock in neutral colors
-A set of blank white notecards with envelopes
-A pack of "Thinking of You" rub-on phrases and icons
-An adhesive roller! (I'm getting giddy just thinking of how much easier gluing paper will be with this!)
-Two Tinkerbell ballpoint pens <3
-and LOTS of Tinkerbell stickers!
And I had to include, at the top, Cinderly's letter with Swap Anxiety Girl at the bottom!  Cheesy

And last but not least: The Magic Yarn Blob! Cheesy

If I understand correctly, it's not one, but THREE different yarns! And Cinderly's letter says that theme-related card supplies are wrapped up inside it. (I think I see a glue-stick in there.) I need to find a pattern to use this on and get to work immediately! I want my buried treasure!  Cheesy

Thank you SO much Cinderly!

Oh, this'll be great. I started cleaning my room (and took pictures) but I've kind of stalled half-way through. My strategy is:
1) put things I want that don't have a home into buckets
2) move buckets out of the way
3) move furniture
4) find homes for the stuff in buckets.

(I've mostly done step 1.)

Look, look, the buckets are gone! Step 2!

And... they're on my bed. Uhm, Undo step 2 if I want to sleep.
