I'm sorry Ms Marple I've had this stamp for about a week now. But here I am finally putting up the photos.

Ms Marple sent me a lovely stamp of an apple tree based on a drawing she did of her parents' garden in Sweden. She did a wonderful job on all the shading.

I've recieved a fantastic package from PlumCrafty  Cheesy

She totally spoilt me.

Inside the cute plastic envelope was, a London pencil, three envelopes and cards, a small blue ink pad, and my wonderful stamp.

She went on to my livejournal and found one of my favourite paintings from my favourite artist, Nick Bantock. This painting is from his book 'Museum at Purgatory' and is called Utopias Map.
It's made of the pink stuff and produces a nice clear map of the possible afterlifes one can go to  Grin

Thankyou so much for this tutorial. I recently used it to make a key piece of my outift for a Gothic Lolita Picnic.
I made some slight changes. I used hooks and eyes in the front, because I don't have anyone to lace me into it and I sewed ribbon strips over the top of the boning channels to give it a cute stripey look.
Here is the result:

I've received my package from Harvey and I'm in the process of preparing the images to be posted here, but in the mean time here is a teaser pic of something I will be sending her very soon.

That cat scarf is so gorgeous  Cheesy

I finally found a camera so here are the lovely things I received from vegbee.

Now I can be a member of the assassin's guild!

A cross between a hood and a scarf: a scoodie

Vegbee also made me a lipbalm holder out of the skeleton material you can see at the bottom of the scarf. But it was inside the messenger bag and I forgot to take it out to get a photo.
A useful zippered pouch that was full of sweets. And some yummy chocolatey maple biscuits that I am munching my way through.

7  Spring Lantern in Halloween Decor and Parties by Raenef on: October 31, 2007 12:50:51 AM
I decided to make a Spring themed jack-o-lantern since I am in New Zealand where it is not at all autumnal. The pumpkins at the store weren't very big and not particularly orange, so I used a butternut squash, it had the height I wanted for my design and it was vaguely orange.
To me daffodils are very symbolic of Spring, and I selected the Cancer Society daffodil logo for its stylised design.
I've never carved a pumpkin (or any other kind of vegetable) before so I kind of just made it up as I went along. I think I need more practice as I managed to make a few unwanted slices, but I'm pleased with the overall result. The whole thing only took about an hour. And I'm very pleased that I managed not to burn myself while lighting it, despite the narrow opening.

In the dark

And I didn't want to waste the lovely insides so I made Pheather's butternut squash soup. Yum  Smiley

8  Dr. Who T-shirt in Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects by Raenef on: October 05, 2007 07:49:11 PM
I've been making my way through season 3 of the new Doctor Who, and when I came to the episode 'Blink' I just had to make this t-shirt.

For those of you who haven't seen the episode, stone angel statues (which are actually aliens) stole the Doctor's Tardis and in a scene where the Doctor is talking to the main character via a dvd he says "the angels have the phonebox". Another character says that he loves that line and he has got it on a t-shirt.
It may sound a bit strange but it all makes sense in the episode, I highly recommend watching it.
Quite a few people were inspired by this scene and if you have a hunt around on the internet you can find people selling shirts with this phrase. But some of them are just boring text, and I'd rather make one myself to get it just the way I like it.

So here is my version:

I look the angels from a screen-cap of the show and altered the colours. The hardest bit was cutting out the individual letters for the beginning of the phrase and laying them down exactly straight. Because of the composition of the image it had to be ironed in three phases but I think it was worth the effort.

I'm just not sure if phonebox should be one word or two. I've come across both variations online.

Such cool stuff has been rolling in.

The whole lot

A lovely little photo album

Chocolate scented balt salts

which came in a gorgeous pink drawstring purse

A bracelet and choker

and some hand-made cards, because Anastasia liked to make cards.

Thankyou Frosty  Cheesy

That TARDIS notebook is so cute!

Here is the wonderful stuff I received from Mave.

A very lovely picture frame box inspired by the Torchwood episode 'Small Worlds':

"Come away oh human child, to the waters and the wild, with a FAERY hand in hand, for the world is more full of WEEPING than you can understand"

A funny little comic about the problems Daleks face with their social lives:

My favourite craft, a GORGEOUS intricate cross-stitch of the Doctor/John Smith, it has eight different shades of brown in it! And as a cross-stitcher I can understand how labour and time intensive this must have been.

A TARDIS tea towel which is Mave's first time using stencils and fabric paint.

And a Dalek pencil case complete with Doctor Who stationary   Cheesy And an ATC of the Doctor and the TARDIS.

Such a wonderful package, thank you so much Mave  Smiley
