11 book and book oriented things!

berry bookmark!

brain martians from outerspace style bookmark!!!!

but the best for last, sci fi!

cinnamon apple smelling pouch.

8 necklaces made of PURE AWESOME
i want to know how you made these mini-boxes.

amazing knife necklaces, there's a whole interesting backstory. and an anatomical heart, and a resin bug necklace which creeped out my mother  Cheesy

7 supplies!
shrinky dink paper, beads and findings, and a michaels gift certificate for textile medium!... national geographics(best for collaging), 2 exacto knives, numerous blades, and a self healing mat (i've wanted one for awhile)

6 cards things!

5 things needed to solder! (i can't believe i got a soldering kit!)

4 presents for my loved ones!

for jason, a wall hanging suiting his personality, and vince gets a deck box and bag Smiley

3 things to keep warm!
hufflepuff scarf the size of my body! my chronically cold mom looked at it and said "now that's a real scarf!" lol. excuse the grubby nightshirt, it's the same one i use to dye my hair.

a rainbow toque, i love the colours!

a Marilyn Manson embroidered toque! i can't wait for my jealous friends to try to steal it.

2 feet!
they were originally supposed to display art socks, but i think i'm going to use them as decorative zombie feet Smiley

1 marilyn manson shrine!
more specifically, a doll dagga buzz buzz ziggity zag shrine, from the golden age of grotesque cd.  Grin the frame in the corner says "if you're not dancin', then you're dead" which is one of my favourite lines from the song.

this was an awesome swap, and i couldn't be more happy with the stuff i got.  Cheesy

first things first, gorgeous bracelet to protect myself from evil vampires: (not spike, i'd let him bite me any day. well, besides early season seven).

and now, "oh hello there, gentle viewers. you've caught me catching up on an old favourite. it's wonderful to get lost in a story, isn't it?"

once upon a time there was a fantastic boy named Xander Harris.

he was best friends with another fantastic boy named Jesse.

they were best friends forever and ever.

and then Jesse died.

everyone was sad. except my parents, who laughed at me when i told them this story, demonstrating with the BEAUTIFUL DOLLS PSMOMMY MADE ME. Xander was very lonely for male company, and pined for Jesse, whose death was somehow ALL ANGEL'S FAULT.
the end

i was carole73's first swap partner, i recieved today. (considering that monday was a holiday and there's no mail on weekends, it took about two days to get here. i was amazed, it takes an average of three weeks normally).


felt, hufflepuff beads, black beads, and studs

other stuff:

a headband, a quebec fleur de lis keychain, iron ons, left over yarn

hair tie which i shall use for a bracelet:

toque and scarf:

i find this especially awesome, considering i hadn't really told carole73 that i wanted this. i told her about my love of toque's in general, but not this. i was actually just about to find a personal swap partner to get a red crocheted hat, and ta-dah! i got one in the mail. mind reading, if i do say so myself.

i'm really happy everyone likes the shirt.

FINALLY, i have pictures uploaded of the stuff wysiwyg made me:

hideyhole book- outside:

hideyhole book- inside:

and yes, those are property cards inside, waterworks and electric company. property cards where i hide my special property, brilliance, i think!


one side is go directly to jail, the other side is get out of jail free.

sewn bracelet:

i'm not entirely positive what it represents, but in my 200+ bracelets, this is the only green one i own, so i'm very grateful. no more pinching come st patricks!

risk inspired necklace:

quite possibly the coolest necklace in the world. it hangs from a metal neck-shaped wire.

thanks wysiwyg, no one would be able to tell it's your first swap from the loot i pulled!

me and fashion_freak decided we were going to swap one medium, and a peice of jewellry. i didn't get a picture of the necklace, but this is the purse i sent her.

hopefully my mom will fall asleep soon, so i can take pictures of what i recieved. not only was i forbidden to buy a new camera, which i have, what fashion freak sent me is being given to her for christmas, as she LOVES frogs. all in all, it's impossible to take pictures right now.

a gorgeous toque and a matching scarf with pockets. i love rainbowy colours, and incidently, i wore a grey toque before. when my dad had to pick me up from classes he would complain i looked like every other student and it was hard to pick me out. not anymore!

stamps! and stickers!

bracelet! as i've said on other threads, i have a wrist covering fetish, and when jlovesg found out she made me a something to go around my wrist even though she doesn't work in beads at all. how awesome of her.

school folders. i actually do use these, as seperators for my binders so i can have notes and test and assignments in different parts. now i have pretty folders instead of lame ones.

erasers and pengrips and notepad. pengrips are massively appreciated, as i write with the ten cent plastic pens that start to hurt your fingers after any amount of time.

magnets of happiness and joy! which my father and i are currently having an arguement about. something along the lines of:
"don't put magnets on my new fridge"
"i'm putting them up"
"i'll just have to move them"
"if you move them i'll kill you."

this picture made me realise *sniffle* something got broken in transit. the plastic part that holds the pen snapped off. but that's okay, i'll use the bottom part as a change bowl... for change!

suncatcher. isn't it pretty? now i just have to figure out how to hang it.

checkbook. i like it, it's like rainbow punk.

everything! isn't that a buttload of awesome stuff?

seriously, it was like i kept emptying the box and it would never empty. i love jloveg.

618  Harry Potter Sirius Black fangirl shirt in Stenciling: Completed Projects by gala_apples on: March 14, 2007 04:32:30 PM
This is actually the first stencil I ever made. I mailed it to my friend in London back in January, it got there today. The mail clearly fails.

Anyway, we're both Harry Potter fans, though I like Harry's generation better, and she likes the Mauraders. So I made her this shirt (which she is modelling, because it is a medium, and I'm a 3x)

I contacted ClassContrarian about November, because I saw she was interested in A Clockwork Orange. We both took our sweet time, but my package finally made it to her house, and two days later hers showed up at mine. Which is strange, because she mailed hers about a week before I mailed mine.

Luckily she took pictures of what I made her, as I have a severe lack of camera at home.

If I'm posting these pictures right (never had the chance to before), then the first is the trinket box I sent her.

As seen in the picture above, I also sent her a necklace. She likes hard punkish jewellry, but for the life of me I couldn't find a person willing to weld, so I went with metal wrapped thread.

*edited to do the pictures correctly*
