1  Re: Witch/Wicca/Pagan Swap Round 8 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by tatteredspider on: September 29, 2008 06:01:07 AM
kstaron scared the *@#! out of me when she told me that she'd already sent out, but apparently her baby hada great nap week and she got tons of work done early. And I'm talking tons! Unfortuately, a couple of things were broken in transit, but i glued them together as well as I could.

Here you can see the pretty altar cloth, knitted scarf, handmade blue candles, pentacle mirror and goblet, all spider themed! Also are the remains of a candle holder (imagine the same glass as the goblet, though inverted with the wood piece on top) and a reglued incense holder. Idon't know where the original spider was, but he sits there know. Grin

Next is a wisdom bracelet that came in a cute little goddess bag, an exotic smelling dream pillow, and a decorated tin covered in my favourite artist.

Sorry about the fuzziness, but inside the tin were these great little fridge magnets,each one a face from one of Moorehouse's paintings.Yeah!

Here you see the two wand she sent, one of gifted maple, the other of paper.My DH likes the maple so much he's trying to steal it from me! The largest of the boxes contains an Egyptian themed Tarot deck.

The medium box contained beaded hairpins, origami earrings and a necklace that my eldest daughter has absconded with.

And last but not least, beaded earrings and matching stitch markers...oops! There was also a flowered hair clip that my second girl has run off with, before i could get a pic!

kstaron, I've been spoiled! Thank you!

I'm soooo happy! I just received my wonderfull gifts this week and I just need to share!

This is the main body of my package. Two handbound goddess myths, those of Demeter and Ishtar, a small handmade prayer book, a photo album filled with photos of Greece and a beautiful poppet I've named for Hera, goddess of marriage and childbirth.
Then in this little pencil case were some wonderful soaps, wood bead earrings, a dainty little seed bead bracelet (which fits me perfectly!) and an amazing tree of life pendant!

Thanks to my swap partner!

Thanks to the advice of slingmomma, I finally was able to make my photos small enough to download! So, here it goes!
I love this book, and while I have it in paperback, I was thrilled to get it hardcover, just for the nifty cover. And then... it opens up to be a book safe, with another book inside. Yeah! Anne Rice!

This is the other book I received as well as a great book bag. One of my daughters has since absconded with the thing, because she loves how the gold sparkles Grin.

And last, the best pic I could get of the pretty bookmark. I love the painted glass beads!
I had a great time and I've already finished reading my gifts!

4  Vintage tapestry/modern laptop tote in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by tatteredspider on: July 06, 2008 06:21:44 PM
I'm so proud of myself! I just sold my very first bag on Etsy!  I was freecycled some vintage tapestry fabric and came up with the perfect laptop bag!

Thanks to Cecilia in Sweden!

5  Poor baby! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by tatteredspider on: June 01, 2008 08:13:19 AM
I wasn't entirely sure if I should put this here or in miscellaneous, but I figured the poor dear deserved the best, so here goes! Until recently I was working in an autoparts manufacturing plant and last summer, found in a box of plastic bins, was the perfectly preserved body of a butterfly Cry. I did not kill it myself, I swear! Well, I managed to save it and get it home. A trip to the dollar store for a small shadow box and some scrapbooking paper for the background and VOILA!

He watches over me while I cook!

6  Floating beads in Beads: Completed Projects by tatteredspider on: May 31, 2008 11:50:06 AM
I was so proud of myself when I got this to work! The beads are actually super glued to the wire to keep them from sliding, and now they look like they're floating on the wire.

My eldest daughter's neck was co-opted for these photos Cheesy

And modeled by my soon-to-be-repaired window sill.
I also have a set that I put together in blue beads. My favourite is the necklace, and the swirly over the disc.

7  Chip off the old pincushion in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by tatteredspider on: May 28, 2008 04:38:53 AM
I absolutely HAD to show these off. My eldest daughter, within the last couple of months, has co-opted all of my jewelry making supplies and is already coming up with much better stuff than me (not that hard really. I never liked my stuff).

These are a bracelet and earring combo. She seems to favor shorter dangle style. Likes to feel them move but not too heavy.

Similar style in blue.

And my personal favourites of the ones that she gave me pictures of. I'm thinking maybe I'll teach her resin casting.  Grin.

And the girl herself!


OOOPS! Just realized I stuck this in the wrong section! It should probably be in beads. Sorry!

8  A couple more bags from my freecycle stuff in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by tatteredspider on: May 08, 2008 04:39:04 PM
I just can't seem to stop making bags, but I've gotta tell ya, it's addictive! I especially like the Pleatness bag. Here's my summer version.

I always think of red and white as so summery (my Canadian roots are showing Grin).

Although not the best picture, you can see that I used the same fabric for the interior as I did for the pleated front. This bag has a zippered top and a large interior pocket.

My second bag is a smaller, flap covered purse with a removable strap.

The photo makes it look a little wonky, but really it's not. I used iron-on patches to decorate the front.

The interior is white with small yellow and orange flowers. It has a zippered pocket and non-zippered pocket just big enough for a cell phone. The somewhat legible label says Hole In The Wall, my name on etsy.

9  pleatness with freebies! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by tatteredspider on: May 04, 2008 07:26:58 AM
     Recently I was gifted a garbage bag filled with fabric through freecycle, and I knew that one of the many things I had to make was the pleatness bag.                                                                                            
     I decided not to add the zipper top, now I'm wondering if that was a mistake. But the button just seemed to go so well, I figured what the heck?
     I used another tute from this site(can't remember where it is though. Sorry) to create the inside pockets. I'm big on zippers because my stuff tends to fall out all over the place otherwise.

Thanks for looking and comments are more than welcome!

10  reconned t-shirt to hoodie in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by tatteredspider on: May 04, 2008 05:37:52 AM
I've tried the tute found on this site (thank you by the way) so many times but hated the results. But I'm stubborn (pigheaded Grin) and just kept trying. I think I've finally made one that works for me. It's way too big for my daughter, on the other hand, who's modelling for me
The hood shoulp sit like this
But I made it a bit too big
My husband says I look like a multi-coloured clansman. I hit him VERY hard for that one. I love my hoodie! It's roomy, colourful, and the faeries are sooo pretty!
