At last...pictures of the awesome package I received from WhisperedEternity.  I've not been as quick with pictures as I usually try to be.

I received I think on Friday, and I was thrilled to find this in the mail:

Mirrormask stuff!  I'm especially in love with Valentine.  His coat (which is my favorite part of his costume) is removable, and while it's hard to tell from the picture, his hair is made to look spiky, like his mask.

Also, Helena's armwarmers (which I also adore).  I'll have to post an action shot when I get a chance.  Unfortunately, I couldn't get a good picture of the Really Useful Book, so I'll try again later (along with pictures of the writing on the inside).

Thanks so much, WhisperedEternity.  I love it  Grin

I received my amigurumi kit from Trifarina last week, but I've only just uploaded the pictures last night, so here they are:

She sent all of the supplies I'd need for a bunny, including two skeins of WoolEase (I love WoolEase), and a CD with the instructions and more projects.  Close up of the bunny:

My bunny so far (just a not-quite-bunny head):  I used a skein of grey that I had laying around...I saw the pattern and the bunny and thought pink and grey, then gold and grey, rather than the pink and gold that the pattern calls for.  So I guess I'll just have to make two (or more)!

So my camera is MIA which is sort of panic-inducing...but I am ignoring that for now. Halfelvenwriter sent me an AWESOME pink and black bag to cart my writing stuff around in. It has a fab pin-up girl writer on the front. Also an amazing journal, pen roll (yes!), and yummy raspberry tea. All absolutely wonderful. If I ever get my hands on a camera I will post a pic.

I probably have a pic or two on my camera.  I'll check and post one. Smiley

EDIT: Here are the pictures I have.


Inside journal cover...dictionary page collage:

Glad you like it, Snowdog26!

Here's the package I received from knitting_nyxxie this week:

She sent some different colors of CottonEase and other yarn, foam shapes, paper, dried peppermint leaves, soap samples and ribbons.  I know I can use these in some upcoming projects.

Thanks!  Grin

Wristwarmers are awesome.  I don't know what I'd do without mine.

I received today from Snowdog26.  Great minds think alike.  Grin

Loose tea (which I'm drinking right now), mug (always welcome), infuser (also always welcome), tea bags (perfect for tea at work), blank book (always needed), notepad (also always needed, and in one of my favorite papers), pens (yay), awesome notecards (with pictures of movie posters and magazine covers for old-school sci-fi and suspense stuff), and a brand new (to me) zine for me to check out.

Thanks, Snowdog.  I definitely love everything. And I must know where you get your loose tea!  Grin

I received yesterday from gingembre.  They're perfect...I wore one to work today.  I'll post pictures as soon as I take and upload them.  Smiley

EDIT: Here are pictures of the ribbon rose cuffs that gingembre made.  They suit my girly side perfectly, they're in colors that go with most of what I wear, and there's also a matching choker with a black rose.

Attempt at an action shot (*note to self* attempts at action shots where you're trying to do some kind of action don't work out well for you):

I received today from cooperduchovny:

Some stickers, some figures and things (great for shadowboxes and altered books), and a whole bunch of soapmaking supplies!

I'm so psyched...I browsed the soapmaking section in Michaels this week when I was picking up Mod Podge, and thought about how it would be nice to find some scents that they didn't have there....then I open this up and find 8 bottles of soap fragrance inside!  I learned soapmaking towards the end of last year, but I'm still using whatever my local JoAnn and Michaels has in stock, and need to learn where else to find cool soapmaking supplies.

Thanks so much!

I received from ghostgirl today!  It's a really awesome package, although I admit I was hit by a wave of swap anxiety when the box came:

The little envelope beside it is the size of the one I sent her (non-fragile) package in  Embarrassed

And then I opened it and realised that it was mostly filled with paper to protect the awesome framed picture she sent, based on "East of the Sun and West of the Moon":  Grin

And there was a little box with sun and moon jewelry, and stitch markers to feed my addiction:

She also sent tea towels (I love tea, teacups, and Alice in Wonderland), and a copy of Angela Carter's The Bloody Chamber.

Thanks, ghostgirl!  Hope you like your crafts, too!

The camera on my battery has died and won't recharge so I'll try and post pictures of the great fabric Halfelven Writer sent me as soon as I can.  Jesse, feel free to post pics if you took any!

I only have one lonely little picture of what I sent, but here goes:

Mostly small pieces...I tried to find a lot of green cotton prints.  And then some sample swatches, and some that would make nice patches.  The flowered bear on the far left is printed with pieces that you cut out and assemble (which I thought was cute, but I'll probably never get around to putting together myself).  Glad to hear you like it.  Smiley  Maybe you can get some close ups when you've won the battle with your camera.  They always seem to act weird just when swap packages arrive.

20  Is this loom worth keeping? in Weaving: Discussion and Questions by halfelvenwriter on: November 25, 2006 11:12:29 PM
If I can just snag a couple of minutes of a weaver's time, I'd really appreciate it  Smiley

I bought this for a couple of dollars at a yard sale a few years ago.  I got it with the idea of letting my brother play with it, but he's bored with it, and I've pulled it out.  Can anyone tell me if it's something I can really use for anything, or should I just put it in the goodwill pile?  I tried googling for information, but since I don't even know what kind of loom this is, I can't seem to get much information on it.  Thanks
