11  Re: Christmas Stocking Swap Round 11 (Signup thru Oct. 20; send out Dec. 4) in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by TrickyMcVomit on: November 01, 2015 05:20:57 PM
My boyfriend and I do Christmas in two states. We live in Philadelphia and my Mom and  four brothers are in CT. We spend Christmas Eve drinking beers with my family and then Mom hosts a breakfast buffet at her house where everyone is invited friends, family and friends who have become family. We eat and get hilarious. My brothers bring a grab bag of random stuff from a crappy dollar store so every one that shows up gets something to unwrap even if it's sponges or rat traps. My tradition is that I bring stick on mustaches for every one.

This is me and my buddy a few years ago (I'm dressed as a snowman. Christmas costumes are my other tradition)

Every one splits after breakfast to do their own thing. We get back on the road for a 3-4 hour trip back to NJ to have dinner with my boyfriends family. We usually spend holidays with my family because I never see them otherwise, but I am glad that very early on we found a way to spend the day with both families....and believe it or not, I love traveling on Christmas. Every one is already where they need to be, so there is no traffic.

I also make a 6 hour long mp3 disk of GOOD Christmas music for the ride both ways. I know it sounds impossible, but after 10 years of collecting, I can do it and i'm good at it and I love it =0)

My favorite gift (or gifts rather) as an adult was last year. My Mom always gets me pajamas, which I open on Christmas Eve (Yes, even at 29). My boyfriend gets me whatever I send him links for. My Mom got me pink bunny pajamas from A Christmas Story and my boyfriend unknowingly got me the matching hoody (that I asked for).

I opened the pajamas first and then saw the look on his face (not to mention the pink gift bag he wrapped it in) and yelled "You got me the hoody too, didn't you!" He sure did.

Me with my niece on her first Easter =0)

Sorry I'm a little late, I'm still working on Halloween things =0)

My whole family came to Philly from CT for the first time in 10 years to surprise me for my for my birthday (we always visit them in CT)! AND my friends made me a Tom Petty "Alice" cake! So now it's back to reality. I just came from Michaels...I didnt get much because I have gift cards and coupons for AC Moore. Michaels is just far and we were passing by, I wanted to see what they had.

I did get stuff to make a thing that I made for myself last year and really fell in love with. Now I need to find time in my full work week to put it together.

I sent late messages this morning because I got called to do a different shift at work and I wasn't going to have the time to send....well...I work next to the post office and it turns out, it was closed today. So, I either way, Monday it is!

And this is my closet. I will definitely make a thread for it. I have a lot left to do, but it's getting there!

My three: Cruella, Runaway Brain Mickey and Lock

I've been working on a pinterest board with way more. Syndrome, Ursula, Oogie Boogie... Just making sure I have variety. I've never visited the parks, but I always get trapped watching youtube videos of the face characters and my favorites to watch are Cruella and Gaston.
Also, I'm going to be Cruella for Halloween this year and I'm really going to two tone my hair. I've been dying to be a villain, I am a natural heel =0)

I received this curious little capsule in the mail yesterday. It looks like a plain old (beautiful) Easter egg

As I was photographing it, this menacing little luchador bunny kicked the top right off of it!

I appreciate this so much, Onyxnox. I love him. Thank you!

And thanks to all for a great swap <3

19  BBC Sherlock Messenger Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by TrickyMcVomit on: July 14, 2014 02:33:51 PM
I had bought this bag with every intention of adding my own touches to it. I settled on a BBC Sherlock theme. I already had the "221B wallpaper" fabric leftover from lining a hood and I knew I wanted to use it to line my new bag with. I'm not going to lie, I would line everything with this fabric if I could...if I didn't have to sew it all by hand like I did with this bag!  Cheesy

I painted a smaller version of "Mr. Blue Skull" for my partner in a skull themed swap and just couldn't resist painting him a second time. Here, I hand painted him onto a solid white craft bandana, cut him out, ironed him on with hem tape and outlined him with sparkle fabric paint for extra reinforcement.

Below is a link to the original bag. It had two inner dividers but one of them didn't connect to the bottom, so I cut it out. I might replace or pad the strap as well but it will probably take me forever to finally get to it  Tongue
I use the ammo loops to hold my sunglasses.

My partner hasn't posted photos yet and I only took photos of two of the items I made, but here they are:

This is the inside of a shell that I painted freehand and made into a pendant.

...and a pendant that I painted and beaded to act as a sun catcher.
