21  Re: Within An Envelope (44-cent swap-International Edition) Gallery! in The Swap Gallery by mouseatethekitty on: July 25, 2011 07:33:10 AM
I received from Lionne!! All of this awesomeness makes me want to resend to her haha Cheesy

The cute envelope!

The first inchies I've ever received!

Some WWF cards in German! And a cute postcard!

Some cute paper

Tea, a cute little dream catcher, ribbon and some pearler beads I think they are called? I think I'm going to attach magnets to them Smiley What isn't pictured is a tiny bag of beads and glitter, my camera refused to focus on any of it. Also there was a cute ribbon bracelet that had an adorable flower on it.

Thank you Lionne for all of the cute stuff! If you have any better pictures please feel free to share, I am unsure why my camera was being a butt head Smiley
I am loving this gallery it looks like everyone is getting wonderful things!

24  Button Dandelion in CHALLENGE 64 ENTRIES by mouseatethekitty on: July 07, 2011 08:45:27 AM
I have had an incredible obsession with dandelions lately. I also have alot of buttons. So I combined the two Smiley
On my canvas I half painted and used tissue paper to glue it to the canvas. I really liked the texture it put on the canvas. I used glitter glue to glue it down and it seems to be holding up well but the glitter isn't really picking up on the pictures. Over all I used tissue paper, paint, glue and buttons

The glitter showed up best on this shot you can also see some of the texture the tissue paper let

Thanks for looking!

25  DEconstructed Zombie shirt IMAGE HEAVY in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by mouseatethekitty on: May 11, 2011 08:00:38 PM
So for my graphic design class this semester we had to create a magazine, I chose to do mine on Zombies and created an article of my own on how to create a Zombie shirt for a zombie crawl or something similar. I figured since I already have it made and on the computer why not share it on craftster? If you are interested of course Smiley

I have no idea who this guy is, my professor asked him to pose for this picture, I had a picture of my boyfriend but she thought this guy looked scarier? I don't know I think he just looks confused...

Also I would like to know that these man hands are NOT mine, they are my boyfriends, I couldn't hold the project and take pics at the same time.

*slight warning*
Now this is straight up taken from the magazine I created for class so please please DO NOT use these images without my permission, I am planning to put my magazine in my design portfolio and it would really suck if someone accused me of stealing my own images. otherwise enjoy! Smiley

I also realized that the shirt the guy at the top is wearing is not the same shirt as in the tute, I created two shirts.
This is the shirt, ignore my messy room I haven't yet unpacked my things since I moved back from college.

Thanks for looking and I hope this small tute may have helped. It's pretty easy and is a pretty easy and cheap costume for Halloween or last minute costume party

What a great way to start off the gallery! I love all of the water color postcards! They are beautiful!

Now it's my turn to show the great mail Annie220588 sent me!
The front, I love all of the crazy patterns she used, it's so bright and colorful! I think my scanner got sick in my move back home, he doesn't seem to be scanning as well as he normally does. Wow. I just described my scanner like a human. Anywayyyy,
The front

THe back

The badass zombie artwork inside, the edges have a cool scalloped feel to them they got cut off a little in the picture

Thank you Annie220588! I love it!

In this swap there are two options: Decorating an envelope and filling it with another piece of art.
sending two decorated postcards to your swap partner This swap is intended to be low stress, cheap, fun short and sweet! You really can have it all! Cheesy

1. Good communication is very important! You must take responsibility and PM your partner AND the swap organizer when you send AND receive your mail.

28  Re: Bookmark Swap - Round 4 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by mouseatethekitty on: February 25, 2011 07:35:12 AM
I received! I'm sorry I'm late with these guys, I wish I could have went home sooner to get them because these bookmarks are so full of awesome!
First I received these two bookmarks from Honeybeee (left) and Tree 27 (right)
I am absolutely in love with the Matroyshka doll, it is absolutely adorable and has already found it's home in the text boo for class I currently am reading Smiley And the colors on Honeybee's bookmark are so soothing I love them both, thanks ladies! Smiley


Next I received bookmarks from RosiePosie(left) and tennisgal86(right)

Can I say that this is the coolest squid bookmark I have ever seen in my life? And I'm absolutely in love with trees! The texture on Tennisgal's bookmark is so amazing! It's so pretty to look at!


The back of Tennisgal's bookmark even included a cute little secret Smiley

Thanks, it was wonderful swapping with you and I hope you like your bookmarks just as much!

29  Re: FOC Second Chance Wishlist Round 2 Gallery! in The Swap Gallery by mouseatethekitty on: February 08, 2011 02:27:20 PM
Well I received a very wonderful package from rabid.dustbunny today, I cannot wait to brag about the wonderful things she sent me Cheesy
I opened the package and found everything neatly wrapped in tissue paper that I destroyed to see what neat treasures she spoiled me with.
The first thing I opened was a coffee mug cozy that I immediately slipped onto the coffee I was drinking

Next I opened some iron on hand towels with sweet retro looking pictures!

I absolutely loved the extra care and thought that went into the detail of it, I thought the embroidery was a lovely touch to the towels!

I was most surprised to see a hex sign in my package! I live in PA and am absolutely obsessed with these having grown up seeing them everywhere.
This hex sign is actually my favorite to boot! Hex signs are traditionally handpainted on barns each has it's own meaning. Two distelfinks/bluebirds crossed means true friendship, double love and good luck. The blue in the birds is for protection, while the red heart is a symbol of deep love, the raindrops wrapped around the entire picture is meant to be a symbol for luck during your harvesting season for a successful crop.
The green vine is for success and fertility while the heart of course is for true love. This hex sign is typically understood to be for marriage love and happiness, you know, in case you wanted to know all of that Smiley

And here is my favorite thing, a pot holder! I love the fabric she used, it matches the coffee cozy and just looks wonderful overall! The stitching is beautiful and I'm in love with the pattern!

I loved all of it! THANK YOU SO MUCH rabid.dustbunny! Everything is crazy wonderful!

30  happy green mobile in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by mouseatethekitty on: January 25, 2011 02:02:46 PM
Hello papercrafts board! I don't visit here very often Smiley

I've been crafting to relieve some stress. Here's a baby mini rant to further relieve my stress, just a lil' Smiley

Sooooo basically my suitemates and I USED to be best friends until a few months ago then they decided to stop talking to me at all and didn't hang out with me even when I asked they made pretty lame excuses or lied to my face. And they repeatedly ignore my texts and facebook messages Soooooo basically I'm tired of sitting out in my common room and getting evil glares from these girls I've decided I don't want to be friends with girls who obviously don't want to be friends with me when I do have people who want to hang out with me.
END of baby mini rant Smiley

Anyway. I've been crafting alot to relieve stress and make my room prettier because I've been spending more and more time in here because I hate being in my living room with these who give me death glares every time they pass me.
I stare at this guy for ever and it was so easy to make! And it makes me sooooo happy. It's not really a mobile but it's nice.
