1  Re: Foreign Exchange swap 2 GALLERY! in The Swap Gallery by got2b4him247 on: April 03, 2007 01:55:28 PM
I got my swap package from Phizzychick yesterday all the way from England!!  I love it!!  Here is a picture of everything except a magazine and a few papers...

and a few close-ups of some of my favorites...

Phizzychick outdid herself!  Everything has cute little playing card tags or post-its attached which explain what each item is!  So cute.  I received...a "punk rock pencil case" which she made which is really adorable...as you can see by the two pictures that it's in, it has a British flag on one side and "punk" written with felt letters on the other.  This is great to me because last semester at my university I took a really amazing class called "A History of Counterculture" and we actually studied about the history of punk rock and its beginnings in England and New York!  Pretty neat.  Other crafted items: a super neat fold-out book labeled "FOOD" which tells about English food, past and present!  It's so neat and artsy.  A felt cupcake pin which says "Eat Me" and a miniature copy of Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll, one of my favorite writers!  Beautiful photographs which Phizzychick took of her area.  A knitted (crocheted?  it's so tiny I can't tell!) flower bracelet with a cute little poem.  Bright red knitted hair clips and a paper about St. George, the patron saint of England!  Other items include many little local brochures (I love the Beatles one!!  I grew up listening to the Beatles and we also studied about their history in my Counterculture class), a magazine called Craft which mentions Craftster!, a set of postcards, a pen, coasters with Beatrix Potter images and from local pubs (so cool!), a replica of a newspaper dating back to the 1800s!, and a paper that you cut out and use the parts to assemble a Welsh dragon (a Welsh art historian spoke at my university a few weeks ago and I thought his accent combined with his wit made the cutest combination ever!).  And, one of my favorite items...three tiny tins of English tea!  They made my whole package smell good and they are so cute!  I love tea so I can't wait to make some!! Smiley

Thank you so much, Phizzychick, I love everything!!!

2  New Shop in Selling Crafts on Etsy.com by got2b4him247 on: January 14, 2007 01:14:00 PM
Hello, hello.  I've been wanting to open up an online shop for years and thanks to Etsy I've finally done it!  Anyway, I only have a handful of items in the shop right now but items I add in the future will be similar.  I'd just like a critique and any helpful suggestions that you may have!  If there is anything I can do to make things sell better, I'll be glad to do it. Smiley  Thanks for your opinions!

3  Re: the Yard Stick shelf ~ tutorial in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by got2b4him247 on: January 10, 2007 09:53:05 AM
I made two of these for the living room in my dorm!  I love love love them!  Thanks so much for the idea.  I had a deck of vintage (1963) cards as well so I was able to put some of them to use on the shelf, thanks for the inspiration for those!  I had been using some as bookmarks but I wanted to use more since they are really adorable.  I was also able to put to use a fan that a friend of mine brought back for me from Japan a few years ago.  Here are my shelves!

And our whole living room!

I love our dorm! Wink

4  Personalized "Guess Who?" in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by got2b4him247 on: December 19, 2006 04:43:11 PM
For my boyfriend's birthday/Christmas present (our birthdays are the 15th and 17th so we combined our gifts for birthday and Christmas and exchanged them last week) I made him a personalized version of "Guess Who?".  I used Photoshop to edit pictures of 24 of our friends to fit into the game.  Here are some pictures so you can see what I mean!

Notice the box cover!

Both boards with a yellow playing card in each one (you draw a card out of a stack to know which player you are).

Yes, there's even a Jesus character (taken from a picture of a bobble-Jesus in my boyfriend's car) and Sven, the plastic dinosaur!

Close-up of me and my boyfriend, front and center.

He really likes it and his family thought it was neat as well!

p.s. If this idea has been done before, I am unaware of it, and thought of this completely on my own! Smiley

Thanks!!  Yeah, that blue/green color is one of my favorites!  Yes, that is a bottlecap...I made a whole bunch of bottlecap buttons using Nina's *awesome* tutorial...

I also forgot to mention that I gathered the blue/green where it meets with the gray.  It's meant to be that way!!  I was just experimenting...thought it might look kinda cute.

Thanks for the tutorial, Maya!  I attempted to make a duct tape purse by your instructions and voila...

I didn't have any awesome wrappers lying around, so I made a collage of band pics/logos from my favorite bands instead (the collage is on aluminum foil I'd like to add)!

I love love love my purse, and I just wanted to thank you for the instructions!  Having a sort of guide was really helpful and I can't wait to make another!  Wink
