2  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Unconditional Swap June on: June 15, 2006 08:53:14 PM
Hi!  I'm Megan, and I'm in NYC in the United States.

1. a beach bag ->  I need a big bag to drag all of my things to the beach.  (I tend to overpack...)  It should be able to fit a big towel and various other things.  I'm currently in love with the idea of 40s/50s bathing beauties style, and I would love for the bag to be black and white to match my bathing suits.

2. a cupcake hat ->  I love these hats, but I'm not good enough at knitting yet to modify it for adults.
Picture of one made by a craftster member: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=74798.70
Pattern for children's hat: http://www.nakedsheep.com/cupcakehat.html

3.  apron ->  I would love a very pink, frilly, ruffly, full apron.  I hate cooking, but I'm hoping that if I have a really awesome apron, I'd be more happy about going into the kitchen.  (I also manage to soak myself whenever I wash anything in the sink and I'm hoping an apron would help out with that as well.)

About Me:  I'm 20 years old; I'm from New Orleans, but I'm going to college in New York.  I like argyle, glitter, and girly things.  My favorite colors are pink, brown, aqua, white and black.  The only color I don't like is blue.  I like raspberries, blackberries, and vintage things.  If you need to know anything else, feel free to contact me!

Thanks for posting a picture of the painting you sent, boywonder.  I'm in the process of packing and I haven't had a chance to find my camera.  I love the painting so much!  It's beautiful and so perfect for me!  (I didn't even know what I wanted, but apparently you did!)   
I want boywonder to paint something for me Wink
Boywonder really did a wonderful job.  I hope you get a chance to have him craft for you, too!

This is off-topic and I apologize, but is that a chandelier behind you, Phizzychick?  Did you make it?  It's totally gorgeous!

And back to the topic...  Amazing things!  I love all the tree bags!  (I really want one now...  lol)

We are curious what crayon craft is--those fish look awesome! I would like some in my windows, too! Please give us a hint on how you made them, memyers!

I followed Martha's instructions: http://www.marthastewart.com/page.jhtml?type=content&id=channel1133!  Except I used blue and green crayons, and cut out fish instead of hearts.  (I just used fish pictures I found on the internet.)  For the beads, I just poked a hole in the bottom with a needle and then attached three beads with a jump ring.  It was really easy and fun!

I'm so glad you like them, daydreamer13579!  (This was my first swap, and I was really nervous!)  Since you mentioned you were having camera issues, I'll post the pictures I took.

The bracelet spread out so you can see all the charms.  (Daydreamer1579 asked for a bracelet with blue and green beads and silver beach/ocean charms.  I had so much fun shopping around the city for the charms!)

And here's the bracelet clasped.

And just for fun I added these fishies.  Daydreamer13579 had also wished for a suncatcher or wind chime (which, unfortunately, I didn't know how to make...  I wish I did, my mom loves those, too...) but I'd been wanting to try the Martha Stewart melting crayon craft and this was the perfect chance!  

(I'm so glad you liked everything!  I had so much fun making it!  Yay for my first swap!)

That is a really cute skirt!  I love the fabric, and the hem looks really cool.  What did you do to it?

I'm in NYC.

My wishes are:

1.  A cherry blossom (or some other pink flower) pillow

2.  Some kind of art for my dorm room (preferably with the main colors pink, black, and/or white to match my room)  Thank you so much, boywonder!  I'm so excited; I can't wait!!!

3.  anything made with resin/epoxy/etc! (i love the jewelry that's made with resin, but I can never figure out how to do it right...)

Here's a little bit about me:  My name is Megan.  I'm currently in college in New York City where I'm double majoring in English and Computer Science.  I love NYC (especially Brooklyn!) and my original home, New Orleans.  I love pink and argyle and all things glittery.  I also love penguins, fashion, black and white photography, and Catholic iconography.  The only color I really don't like is blue.  If you need to know anything else, feel free to pm me.  I'm so excited about this swap!

I'm so sorry I haven't had a chance to answer questions earlier.  I've been moving my sister into college in Atlanta. 

ragamufyn:  These were only a few of the beads my mom has in a basket behind the front door.  I used about 50 beads, probably, and I didn't even make a dent in the basket.  (My sister and I have lived here all our lives, and we would always throw fits when Mom would try to get rid of the beads.)

krebstar5: The scarf is amazingly heavy.  It feels like I've loaded my necks up to the chin with beads, but it's not unbearable, and I can still move and everything. 

night_owl: I broke the strands and twisted the last bead on two strands together.  (Does that make sense?  That's how we always fixed the broken ones when we were younger..)  Halfway through, I found that it was best to break the part where the two beads were glued together off entirely, because it had a tendency to break while I was knitting.  (But that was the nice thing, even though it broke, it never unraveled, because the beads would just get stuck together before they did any damage.)

apixiegrl:  I'm so bad with naming things...  but you can feel free to name it if you want.  Let me know if you do.

bijouxmaster: Steal away!  But, you might want to make the scarves thinner than I made them, maybe two or three stitches, because the scarf did get rather heavy and bulky.

Everyone else, thanks so much for your comments!
