YKYACW: You cannot wait until someone comes home so you can show them your new treasure from the fabric store. A giant. Pink. Pincushion.

(To which my BF replied: "Another one? So?")

Good idea craftADDchick - my partner my partner seems verrry busy (I think with school) so here is a list of what I sent (I only have two pictures)

I used glass paint to decorate a large teacup and saucer set. I tried and tried and tried to take a picture that actually looks like it in real life, but because of the clear glass and paint... nothing looks like the real deal. I painted it blue, then purple, and highlighted in silver.

Satin-ribbon covered tea tin, filled to the brim with tea.

Also, I re-painted a tiny porcelain tea set, in the same blue/purple theme (for dollies) and made a pretty stationary set, to "have a cup of tea and write a letter."
I made a pretty tea-themed paper collage, but had to (gasp) fold it to mail it to her, I am pretty strapped for cash and couldn't afford the mail-tube-thing. I hope she liked it anyway. I also sent some lovely loose teas, a caramel black tea, and  some kind of chai.

I dont think it's too tall!  But then my stuffie's on the bigger end as well.

Being that this is my 3rd round doing the swap, I guess I'll put in my 2 cents...  =P

It's easiest to have something that is small enough to put in your purse or throw in whatever bag you tend to carry around than something that is huge.  I don't think 12" is really too big...just depends on who your partner is. 

Well, then when I get my partner, I will ask. That's a good suggestion! Here's a picture for reference - any other input?

Oof, do I ever feel stupid.

So, my BF is making breakfast this morning (amazing!!) and so I handed him the little bag of coffee that honeyd sent me, to have along with breakfast. He took it up to the kitchen, then came back down with a puzzled look on his face and this in his hand:

A crochet, giraffe print coffee cup! It's filled with coffee beans, which is part of why I thought the bag was filled with coffee grounds.... it smelled like coffee, too! (It smells really really great, I think I'm going to put it in my car and see how it does as a freshener). Thanks honeyd, sorry that I didn't find it sooner!

First of all, Butterfinger Cocoa looks like the best thing on the planet and I cannot believe that I didn't know it existed!

Second of all, I got my package from honeyd, and PM'd her, saying that I would "post pics tomorrow".... last week. It completely slipped my mind, and I feel so awful! I even printed the picture out, and have it in my swap journal already, and didn't even post it here. I am a bad, bad poster.

Those are two beautifully painted giraffe-print coffee cannisters (that seal super-well so the coffee stays fresh!) a bag of coffee grounds (that I think may be flavored, but the bag doesn't say) and some chocolate covered coffe beans.... and two HUGE coffee cups! They are the perfect thing to go with my latte machine.
Everything was great, the chocolate coffee beans are already gone, and I have filled the cannisters with coffee and tea.

18  Re: What do you store your buttons in? in Discussion and Questions by Fluxity on: May 13, 2007 10:00:38 PM

I bought tons of these little things, and sorted the buttons by color, size, and what they're made of. I have a label on the end of each container summarizing what's in each one - I have everything from buttons, beads, clasps, snaps, pins, sequins, rhinestones and charms in them - and I never have trouble finding what I need!

Good luck!

19  Chromachron! in Discussion and Questions by Fluxity on: May 08, 2007 11:19:15 PM
Ok. (breathe, Fluxity, breathe) I saw this watch on coolhunting.com months ago:


It's a Chromachron. Check out the link about the watch, it's my dream timepiece!

Now, under normal circumstances, I know enough about myself to know that I have no business trying to mess with mechanical things like clocks... and I would just buy one at the store.

But do people sell these beautiful clocks and watches??? NO! NOBODY DOES!

So I here I am, begging the crafty people for advice - how would you make one of these - probably as a wall clock? Do you think I could convert a regular clock?

/end rant. Smiley

I got a super-cute box in the mail from Sewknitter today!!


And the box had my initials on it!

And a butterfly!!!

Those little playing cards are freaking awesome, and I am dying to use the metal photo-corners. Did you make the flip-flops and turtle? They are adorable!

Thank you very much SewKnitter!
