Don't you look.. dashing! Cheesy  I love the heels earrings.. cute!

Well I received a totally awesome package from ScotSkipper402 today.. Not 1, 2, 3 or 4 but 5 pairs of earrings!! I was absolutely spoilt rotten.. thankyou so much ScotSkipper402... they are lovely!

The studs are vintage buttons, except for the dolphins, which were charms- they have an alternating red and green bead to represent port and starboard too.. and the dangly ones are just lovely!.

Thanks again SS.. you've outdone yourself! Cheesy

Today I received not one but two lovely pairs of earrings from princesskaos15- Thankyou! They are lovely... Cheesy
Here is my attempt at a picture- I think you should go ahead and post yours because I'm pretty sad when it comes to photography! The blue pair is adorable and the others are a great length.

Thanks again princess!

I received from MargiePoo. The good news was receiving 2 pairs- the bad news is that they are a little bit mangled and my fav pair was broken Sad

I'll get to reassmbling the other.

edit [oops.. one of the parts seems to have escaped!]

24  Cornish Pixie- Harry Potter Style! (My first Polymer Attempts) in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by ViolinRomance on: July 06, 2007 02:01:18 AM
Hi guys, well I made this little fella a while ago for the End Of Harry Potter Swap. He is based on the Cornish Pixie in the 2nd HP movie. Hope you like him- it was my first polymer attempt, so he and his manic little grin are close to my heart!!

This is him at his new home! Click

I used a rough armature made of wire, foil and paper tape.
I strangely found the face the easiest and most fun to do.. whilst the arms and legs were quite a bit harder than I had thought!
The wings were some.. I suppose sheer? sort of fabric that my grandmother gave me. I stitched it onto wire frames and painted it grey with acrylic paints.
I was slightly reserved about re-baking clay (although I'd read that was what you do.. It was my first attempt so I thought I'd try not to..) I think he may have turned out a little better if I had realised there wasn't any harm in.. for example.. baking the head before I attached it to the body!

Hi guys,
Well I thought I'd post what I made for bubblegumsgoodfood, as she would have received a week ago...
Anyway I sent her an embroidered mermaid scarf because it's winter her in Oz and she said she wanted something wearable

I also sent her a unicorn heat pack- not only coz it's winter, but she's doing her HSC (the really scary final exams that get you into uni- or not!) and I thought a heat pack would help with relieving stress a little.

I sent her 3 pressed fairy notecards

Some fairy-esque beads- because she said she like to do jewellery making... they just seem really fae to me!

And a bracelet and keychain with beads again that remind me of fairies- but I also did some twirly, branchy kinda things with wire and, yeah, again- it seemed fae to me!

So that's all from me, hope you guys like it!

26  Some little things for mum.. in Mother's Day by ViolinRomance on: June 23, 2007 07:40:23 PM
So I know mothers day was a little while ago- but I just got around to taking pics of the things I made her today..
She got this card and canvas with some chocolate, her very own atc (egyptian themed that I gained in a swap with Katxena) and a beaded ring made with tiny pink crystals and white pearls that I couldn't get a decent picture of!

The card is leopard print with all different things- a butterfly with little wire and beads antanae, some tulle and cute fabric and a button resting on handmade paper, an Australian one cent coin and a few other bits and pieces...
The canvas I painted in all different browns, reds, blacks, pinks, greys and got the funniest pic of my mum laughing hysterically to put on top of it all.. the letters strung along the wire with beading spell "SMILE" !!

She liked it all and I hope you guys do too!!

I received from funthreads! Yay! Feast your big round eyes on my loot and hoot!

The packaging (how pretty)

2 little owl stuffies- so cute and of course well made.

A big, snuggley jumper for the winter (we're just 7 days into it and I've pretty much lived in this jumper!) I also love it because it reminds me of Hewig

Some luggage tags with little machine-embroidered owls. funthreads was doing her research and found out about my planned move to England next year and thought she would help me fly my luggage in style! My grandmother is worried that if I use them someone will steal them because they are so cute! Bless!

Notecards- the art is amazing and again- to assist me with keeping in touch when I'm in the UK.

And lastly- my favourite, the owl clutch! It's made from grey cord and the cutest blue-grey embrodered owl with diamonte eyes, a pearlescent button and cool checkered lining on the inside. It is amazing, so cute and classy- I've taken it around everywhere with me- no one believes its handmade! There was also a little zip pouch (not in the pic as I am currently using it!) and it's made from the same material and lining with burnt orange owl on the front.

Thankyou so much funthreads- you've set the bar so high for me- Your pro sewing skills set my attempts to shame, but I hope you like what I send you as much as I adore what I got!!

28  Re: I <3 Tea/Coffee/Cocoa Swap Round 4 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by ViolinRomance on: May 29, 2007 09:15:04 PM
Hi guys!
I just wanted to say thanks so much for the lovely comments people made about my package- especially the pillow which is the second ever one I made so I was a bit worried about how it might turn out!

I got my package from mommabear1963 and it's absolutely lovely!
Thankyou so much! Evrything is just gorgeous or delicious!

Here's everything together: I got some jewellery made from beautiful glass beads and silver charms, a Rapunzel scarf in coffee colours, 2 little amigurumi, a cup cozy and some drinkables too.

To drink- mommabear1963 sent me some of her own mixed teas in a few different flavours- one for relaxing nerves and upset stomachs, one that lifts your spirits if you're feeling "blue" and a "fun" tea of rose and hibiscus that is said to induce love/lust!! Sadly the lemongrass mixture she tried to sent didn't make it through quarantine though Sad
She also sent is some great Coconut Rum Coffee that she ground for me (coz I am pathetic and don't have a grinder!) which smells devine and she took notice of my previous posts on the board when I said I love Butterfinger and sent me some hot choc too!

The lovely jewellery- 2 sets of earrings, a 'charm'ing bracelet and a stylish necklace. The beads were shaped like coffee cups and teapots, not to mention the silver charms including teapots, teabags, a little cup and saucer and a piece of cake on a plate witha knife and fork- they are adorable!

The scarf- to get me ready for the winter

The cozy (modelled by the thermis I received in the EOHP Swap) The colours are lovely- I can't crochet so this is great!

And my little donut and cafe con leche.. aren't they cute! Their little smiles make me happy Smiley

Thanks again mommabear1963- you've been a great partner!!

Ok! So...cutting a long story short, I'm not a huge drinker, but decided to go out the night before our public holiday and well.. got alcohol poisoning.. Yay! Well yesterday (thurs) I was still recovering (I know.. unfair huh?) and what should turn up but the hugest package filled with the most awesomest stuff to cheer me up!!

** Thankyou  just_gemz!! **

So I made the boy get up and open it with me.. feat your eyes on the amazing stuff I got...

The letter, inwhich Fawkes had enclosed some feathers for my next wandmaking venture, also some awesome stickers and a book scarf and wrist warmers in Gryffindor colours.

Here is a close up of the wristie goodness.

One of the things I love the most.. my monster book tissue holder.. there is a little mini pack of tissues in there because I might need them on July 21st... it's also very me because I'm the person who always has those packets of tissues and seems to forever be blowing her nose!

just_gemz also checked out my wist and made me this lovely unicorn tote from it... the colour is beautiful, I love it!

And here is my lovely Star Dumbledore pillow.. with lovely Dumbledore-style starry fabric, it's modelling my crocheted headband (as seen in the HP Christmas swap- I loved it and so she made it for me!) It's perfect I love it! Also in the pic is my brand new sideways scarf! She said it was the thing she stuffed?!?!?!? It's great! In Beauxbaton's colours I'll be wearing it all winter!

And last but not least.. we have... A POTION'S KIT!

just_gemz really took notice of what I said in my little questionnaire! I said I love the notion of potions (even if I'm not too fond of the potions master.. yes I know.. I've just earned myself some enemies here!) But my potions kit is sooooo cool!! It contains..
Syrup Of Hellbore
Re'em Blood
Bundimum Secretion
Doxy eggs
Black Kryptonite
Powdered Moonstone
Erumpet Horn
Bicorn Horn

I was also instructed to mix my own potion in my very own engraved dark mark potions bottle! The mixture is a slightly more transparent green and the powdered moonstone makes it glittery.

There was so much detail in everything she did. just_gemz thankyou sooo much! This has been a great swap! Also, I'm not so great at taking pictures so please post yours if you have any better ones! I couldn't get a great shot of the pretty jewellery she sent me in Gryffindor colours and also green and purple.. just coz I like those colours too!
