Okay, so I got part one of my second package! Yay! It was just there leaning against my door when I got home, all cylindrical and lovely and package-y. Yeah. Well, pictures!

Here is the whole package. It's a learn-to-spin kit! Oh, my!

There is a spindle, a bunch of wool batting, and some small samples, two hand-spun yarns, and two little bits of fiber, so lovely and sparkly and just so soft.  I adore them. I shall probably just keep them, take them out every so often to rub against my cheek. (btw, I love this site, because I can say something like that, and not get any weird looks. Like how the boy looked at me today when I showed him a picture of a Blythe doll.)

The spindle is so pretty and green. Here is a picture of the top of it:

Thank you so so much, LizzieMcguire! I can't wait to see what else you're sending(Gosh, that sounds greedy!) And I hope you like your (as yet unsent) package.


P.S. As of writing this, I have several yards of rather lumpy, kind of odd-looking 'yarn' on the spindle! Pictures soon to come.

I received my package from Lizzie Maguire!

And it is wonderful.

Here is all of it:

There are postcards, purse-shaped cards, a little rubber stamp made from an eraser, orange chocolate cookies, minty chocolate, fruit candy things. Which happen to be very addictive!  Um, burgundy yarn, a glass she painted, a journal and picture frame that she decoupaged, two adorable cow-shaped candles, hand-made soap(smells so yummy!), puffy stickers, beads, earrings, and a German magazine with the coolest little logic puzzles. They are so hard, but so fun. I really want to get good at them!

The lovely little journal and picture frame she decoupaged:

Postcards from Jena, Germany, where she currently resides:

A glass. She painted Tilly and the Wall all the way around! They are my very favorite band!:

This German book with these really cool puzzles. I still haven't got them down completely, but I spent a long time on them yesterday, and am getting it!  They are my new sudokus.

Altogether, there was a lot in my package!  Thank you so so much, Elisabeth!

13  Owlies! in Completed Projects by porfavoray on: December 31, 2007 09:05:34 AM
So I saw this tutorial for little owls, to be made into a garland. And I'm not sure where. Probably on Whip Up, but I'm too lazy to go through everything there to find it at the mo. So...here are some owls that I made into ornaments for Christmas.

Thanks for looking!

This is all of it, a pillowcase with embroidered dragon, a t-shirt, decoupaged box, and clay dragon.

Here is a closeup on the pillowcase(which is awesome, by the way!)

The front of the shirt:

And the back (hilarious!):

Thanks, Megan!

Oh, and the dragon's wing broke off in transport, but I have glued it back on!

15  My first Socks! Yay! in Knitting: Completed Projects by porfavoray on: December 08, 2007 02:40:03 PM
So this is the first pair of socks I actually finished. They're made out of less than one skein of Knitpicks' Gloss, in Cocoa. A very nice, soft yarn. I used the toe-up sock pattern from last summer's Interweave Knits. With a rather unthought-out cable pattern. But I love them. They are my first and favorite socks.

And the cable pattern:

Sorry about the horrid photographs, I really need a new camera.Anywayz, I just wanted to share my first socks with you! Hope you like them.

16  Chain maille necklaces in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by porfavoray on: November 21, 2007 04:05:45 PM
So I finally got back into chain maille again. And I ordered a buttload of rings. 2 pounds to be exact. From Canada. So shipping was actually more than the rings themselves. Le sigh.

Anyways, this is a box chain.(Aww, a heart! It loves you!)

And this is six-in-one. So called because each of the center rings are through six of the outside ones.

I hope you like them!

Kay, so I recieved my first package two days ago, and since I am unable to take pictures, my secret swapper sent along a disc with a couple piccies on it! Which was quite clever of her, so as not to ruin the surprise. See? Yeah, I thought so too.

Anyways, she sent a little wristlet(Which actually is big enough to hold all I like to carry along with me on a daily basis. Not so for many of its ilk.),  and the loveliest necklace. I truly <3 it.


Back, with necklace:

So, yeah. This was basically awesome. I love the fabric. And everything. Thank you, dear secret craft partner!

18  Cats I Have Known Abecedarium in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by porfavoray on: June 15, 2007 06:58:48 PM
So I made this accordian-folded book to fit inside a reconstructed Altoids tin. For my final project in art last semester.

Here is the tin:

The front:

The back:

Some that I really like:

I hope you enjoy them!

I wrote all the little couplets myself, and each correspond with a picture. I especially had fun coming up with odd names!

Sorry I've been so late in posting pictures! I recieved my package from _Suicidal_Angel_ days ago and have only just got a chance to bond with my computer for more than a few minutes!

Here is what greeted me upon my coming home after work one day:

And here it is in all its glory(almost...someone ran off with a little pink pouch).

There is a really cool big bag with skulls all over it.  It is now my new shopping bag.

Also pictured is a spray of black roses, a scrunchie with Jolly Roger-type skull and crossbones, Princess Ai shoelaces, a candle holder, and some red fabric with white polkadots.

Also, that coffin box is awesome. I love it. And cannot figure out where you would find such a thing.

Anywho, thanks a million, _Suicidal_Angel_!
