11  Trading Card Game Swap? in New Swap Theme Ideas by noushi on: April 28, 2013 03:28:31 PM
I'm interested in seeing if anyone would like to have a Trading Card Game themed swap. This could include Magic the Gathering, the World of Warcraft Trading Card Games, Pokemon Trading Card Games, Yu-Gi-Oh, just any collectible card game people would be interested in. People could be grouped based on their interests, but due to the wide variety of games people might not be matched perfectly.

I wouldn't be able to organize (I've never organized before), but I'd be willing to co-organize with someone who has organized before. Also if anyone know of former swaps similar to this please link them Cheesy

I've found two swaps for Magic The Gathering in the past, but neither seemed to draw many swappers.

I just received a very cool box from Glamis. She went with my bees theme. My pictures are pretty crappy, but maybe she has better ones.

The overall view

Close-up of the front.

And the very cool contents. My favorite is probably the Totoro pin (which I wore to work today) and the mini Tardis and red rose. Such tiny details!

Thanks soo much Glamis!

PS- I would totally be up for another round, I have a ton of ideas to make mine spiffier.

Yay! I'm glad you liked your serial killer box. It was pretty fun to research the different ones. I absolutely looooove my Donna Noble box. I also love that you took the theme of the Agatha Christie episode with the wasps. Here's the crappy photos I was able to take. If you have better ones feel free to add them.

(It was hard to get a good picture without a glare because she's soo shiny)

I just received the best swap package ever. I had a serious migraine before I checked the mail, and once I got my package I seriously jumped for joy. I received a wonderful flower pincushion for my sewing machine, a little bit of candy that almost got stolen, and.... BENITO. He is the cutest thing in the entire world and I couldn't be happier to have him!

The cute packaging that is also my wonderful first pincushion

And a group shot with Benito. As you can see Goddessgarb also included some beautiful glass pins to sit in Benito's saddle bags. I've already sent pictures to my sister who is very jealous of Benito.

Thank you soooo much Goddessgarb for a wonderful package.

15  It's a PYRO in Halloween Costumes by noushi on: October 30, 2012 09:23:55 AM
So for Halloween this year my fiance and I decided to throw a video game themed party. Everyone dressed up as their favorite video game character, and it was a ton of fun. My fiance decided he wanted to be a Pyro from Team Fortress 2. I dyed the jumpsuit, sewed the bandolier, and made a emblem patch; and he fabricated the gun, the grenades, and the tank for the back, he also added the yellow parts to the gloves. The mask was the only thing store bought, but I did have to extend the straps due to my fiance's large head... Regrettably we only got a few good photos with it on, and you can't see the tank on the back or the emblem patch I made. So I have a separate shot of the emblem before it was fused on.

And here's the before picture:

16  Disappearing Scraps Quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by noushi on: October 19, 2012 11:56:05 AM
So I've officially finished my first quilt! WHOOHOO
It's a small quilt for my dog. Since it's starting to get cold around here, I thought he might like a blanket to snuggle up with when the house gets cold (we don't really turn our heat on). Usually we just get him a piece of fleece, but I felt like doing something a bit more special. I used the Disappearing Scraps Quilt pattern from Rubyru on Etsy. It's a great pattern with really clear instructions. The fabric was just a few off white fat quarters I had mixed with a ton of Batik fabric charm squares. The pictures are kind of crappy I tried to take some outside, but it was really windy and a bit too sunny, and then the ones inside were only slightly better.

Here's Jay with his quilt. (He refuses to look at the camera)

And here's the quilt all laid out. I cut the pattern down to about 24" square, since it's just for a dog not a child.

And here's the photo of my beautiful binding and machine quilting.

Here's the link to the pattern if you'd like to try it out yourself.

Well I was just about to post my completed clues, but then I saw the comments about no spoilers Cheesy. I decided to do two quilts, one will be the beginner and the other the intermediate/advanced. The beginner one will be a Christmas present for my mother in law who loves Hello Kitty, these are her fabrics:

And then this other one is a quilt finally for me! I just love the tiny snails in the dark fabric:

I think I'm going to go crazy waiting for the clues each week. I'm not a very patient person...

19  Re: Questions About Hairstyles! in Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions by noushi on: November 08, 2007 02:20:23 PM
OK another question about weaves, the stylist said she is going to braid my entire head and attach the tracks to those braids (she'll leave out the top for a part and around my hairline) my sister has never gotton her hair done like this, but instead with each track having hair in between

I have baby fine hair, so my sister thinks that the way the stylist wants  to do it will make it to bulky for it to look natural

20  1000 Lucky Stars by 2008 in Craftalongs by noushi on: November 02, 2007 05:59:41 PM
My mom recently was diagnosed with breast cancer. I've heard of the Chinese tradition of making 1000 cranes for better health, I can't seem to make a single crane. So my solution is to make 1000 Pink Lucky Stars

Here is a Tute on how to make themhttp://www.opane.com/luckystar.html
Would anyone like to make some with me? You can give them away to a loved one, or just for luck.
The paper size is 10"x1/2" or something near that size
