1  Re: Once You Pop You Can't Stop Swap #4 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by sarush on: August 15, 2007 08:10:36 PM
I've received from yamwam!

Onto the photos:

Entire Can

I love this paper. It is so simple and beautiful. Is it scrapbook paper?

Canadian Highlighters

Which I'm pretty excited to use at work. I always get the same boring type there. Yay for new, exoticly foreign highlighters!

I Don't Really Know What These Are

I think they're either soap or sugary syrup like pixie sticks. Yamwam, let me know so I can either eat them or do something else with them Smiley

Majong Tile Bracelet

Super cute. And not nearly as blurry as my crappy camera skills would have you believe.

Lemony-Lime Soap

Smells delicious. I love citrus scents.

Fragile Sticker

The soap rubbed off on it a bit Sad

Green Bag--Best for last  Grin

This bag is so perfect. It folds up to practically nil (hence why it fit in a pringles can) but it's really roomy and long, so I can wear it over my head or just on the shoulder. I think I'll use it for last minute grocery trips. That's all I pretty much do and I don't have to devote an entire closet to plastic bags from Wal Mart.

Thanks yamwam! I love everything. That's it for me, I've received all three of my cans and I love them all. I hope you've all enjoyed this swap. It's been tons of fun!

These are pictures from the can I sent to squir_l---


Like the others, it said "oypycs 4" on the back. This can was the worst to work with; the paper (it's wrapping paper) kept slipping and moving. Ugh.


There is a definite "Japan" theme with this can. Kyra may be going to Japan to teach sometime in the future.

Tissue Case

Cherry blossom fabric.


Okay, I lied, there is also a definite beach theme.


There is a magnet on the back so it can go on your fridge too.

Luggage Tags

The phrases are totally stolen from other luggage tags.


I lucked out; each of the three people I sent a can to liked Japanese stuff and I had a whole bunch of it. This ornament has a weird circle thing at the top of the string (I'm real good with the words, ha) that reminds me of the ornaments you can attach to the pull thing on ceiling fans. So this is either a ceiling fan pull doohickey, a holiday ornament or something else entirely that only Japan knows about.

wow, i didn't even know anything was written on the previous page about changing the plan. i am fine with doing that too. in fact, i'm going to baltimore and dc for 5 months in october for training, so i will have to have dragonslair send me my recipes to a different address if we keep with the original plan. just let me know what you decide, i'm game with anything.

i received month 3's shipment today though. thanks cheyenne Smiley

yay, i received Smiley this package is from superhooker.

onto the goodies--

(how cute with my beach screensaver behind it! the can was decorated with a map paper and then all these pirate things, like foam stickers of a flag, coins, a ship and swords. this cute little pirate man you see is more 3d than the gold chest he is standing on. i have never seen stickers like that before, they are neat)

(big group shot. included are: pirate stickers, grow a pirate, japanese stamps, a skull hankercheif, felted beads, asian stickers with kanji, skull soaps, eye patches, a skull necklace, three gel pens, cute as hell wing earrings, three donut stitch markers (i really do need to learn how to knit now!)(and...i could not get a nice picture of the donut stitch markers but believe you me, they're adorable. one even has sprinkles! they were made by fellow craftster kishcrafts), three rings (perhaps from a treasure chest?) and some origami paper with folding directions)

(a close up of the felted beads. i love these! i have seen them on craftster before and they look so neat. i can't wait to find something to make with them)

(wing earrings. i love these too! i think superhooker made them by hand, which is insane.)

(and last but not least, here are the skull soaps. they helpfully remind me "we are soap! do not eat us!". haha.)

thanks so much superhooker; i love everything  Grin

there are two cans out there on their way to me, and i've been checking USPS.com every hour or so but they haven't updated Sad
a watched pot never boils.... lol

tell me about it! ha.

but, i did have an awesome package waiting for me when i got home today. woohoo! this one is from TrashedClothing.

I don't know what you used to clean the can with, but it smells so good. And actually, as I am sniffing it now, I think it might be paint. Wow, I'm huffing paint. Way to be like an after-school special.

This is your brain on drugs! Ha, this is a bottle cap pin with a dead skull/zombie guy. It might be from a movie, I don't know.

This is a cute Johnny Depp magnet. It looks like a bottle cap too, but I don't know if it is or not. It is bigger and flatter so maybe it's a flattened bottle cap?  Either way, it's already on my fridge.

And here's some pirate money.

Robots! When I saw this, I was wondering how in the heck Stef was able to cut plastic so neatly. Then I remembered the phenomenon otherwise known as Shrinky Dinks. Is that what this is made out of? Do you buy the computer printable one? What brand do you get? (Sorry for the all the questions; I have some that is not for printers, but it's completely clear like transparency sheets are and I haven't used it yet. Partly because I think it's fake)

I call this Mr. Skeevy Pirate. The image is not as grainy as my camera would have you believe. Same goes for the creepy dead zombie skull pin up above. I don't know if that means my camera is just really good or really bad; it likes showing the fibers in materials like paper and fabric. It's a domino pendant.

And the best for last....

I LOVE this shirt. It's embroidered with a lyric from my favorite song, Dream On by Aerosmith. It is so soft too and absolutely awesome.

Thank you so much Stef. I seriously love everything  Grin

7  Cork Wreath in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by sarush on: July 30, 2007 08:46:08 PM
My mom made this. She's working on cork boards now. This one is in my apartment but she's made a few different ones for herself, my grandmother and my sister.

It's just a hay-like wreath from an arts & crafts store, lots of wine corks, hot glue and fake grapes. I really like it and wish it wasn't stuck in my dark hallway/foyer. One day when I'm not a renter....I tell myself that in reply to all my complaints of my current place.

8  my first foray into embroidery too! (tea cup) in Sublime Stitching Embroidery by sarush on: July 30, 2007 07:18:21 PM
Completely inspired by Lilyzilla's post (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=186454.0), I finally did some embroidery. I bought the Stitch Kit almost 9 months ago and have yet to use it. I even bought this embroidery stuff from DMC (or whatever that company is that makes all the floss) a year and a half ago.

I used one of the tea towels that came in the kit and I'm thinking I'll use it to do all my practicing.

With further ado...

I used the chain stitch, the satin stitch and the backstitch. I'm pretty sure I messed up all of them. Ha. Especially the chain stitch. The thread just wouldn't separate in a visually appealing way. I'll be the first to admit that it could be entirely due to user error.

Either way, I'm totally stoked I finally used my embroidery stuff. I hope to keep this up, maybe every couple of nights doing some embroidery before bed. I feel like an 82 year old. Ha  Grin

Yay! Oh my god you did so much better than me. <3 I'm too chicken to try the chain stitch but yours turned out so cool, I might have to.. Love it!

oh silly me, i didn't do the chain stitch, it's the split stitch.

it says:

Haha, I love it. I love everything. Thanks again Jenn Smiley

I cheated too, entered it online into a translator. It's been sitting on my desk for days now waiting.

10  Everything I've (loom) Knitted Thus Far (lots and lots of images) in Knitting: Completed Projects by sarush on: July 29, 2007 11:17:39 AM
So my friend taught me how to use a Knifty Knitter in the winter of '05-'06. I'd like to learn how to knit with needles but I have a hard time learning from illustrations. One day I'll find a real person to teach me.

Here are all the things I've made:

A baby hat, the first thing I made-

A green and green/yellow set I made for myself. I love the scarf because it's really long but I never really used the hat-

Purple hat, part of a set for a friend-

Purple scarf that rounds out the set. This is the first time I added tassels-

First hat I added a pom pom to-

Close up of the pom pom-

Furry blue hat, it is super soft but I wish now that I used two strands of yarn instead of one to keep it from stretching out so thin when it's worn-

Dark blue hat, part of a set for a friend-

Dark blue scarf that finishes the set. I love this color; I've been meaning to make myself a set with it for myself-

Bright blue hat for a friend. This was done with a fairly plain yarn, with two strands of it so it is nice and thick. I forgot to take a photo of the scarf.-

Sparkly red scarf-

Cream colored hat for my mom. I made a scarf to match but I don't have a photo. And then, the hat was too tiny anyway-

This a set I made for my niece Piper. It is a very multi-piecy yarn so it isn't very warm but she lives in California. You can see my sister in the back wearing a scarf I made her. Disregard her bitchy look. I made her a hat to match the scarf too-

And another photo of Piper because she's adorable (completely unbiased of course)-

I can only make scarves and hats on the knifty knitter looms. I've tried mittens but they turned out to be a disaster. I know people have made bags and clothes and other things, which amazes me. Not to mention what people can do when they're knitting with needles. I need to find a grandmother who can teach me this stuff.
