1  Re: Mini Make-a-friend swap gallery in The Swap Gallery by Whileywoo on: October 20, 2010 09:02:41 AM

My darling Laura (jadore-le-rose) learned a new skill and worked her butt off to make me this beautiful cross stitch from my wist! Cheesy It must have taken hours and hours! Its getting an oak frame and going at the top of the stairs. Its so cool.

She also made me these adorable earrings, I'm particularly in love with the pink ones, they totally remind me of flamingos for reasons beyond me. They're officially my wedding planning earrings, i wore them last night to the grand pie-eating-and-wedding-planning-chat-with-the-in-laws last night and I'm wearing them tomorrow when we go for our appointment at the zoo about having our wedding there. Cheesy

With all the hoohar my end, and there has been more than I can express, or is fair to whinge about to you all, I've not been able to actually make anything for Laura. Sad I simply haven't had time and energy, so I made her a treasure stash box, and I hope she likes it, but nothing will compare to the obvious effort shes put into my cross stitch.

Holy moly, I have been so incredibly lucky! My partner is incredibly generous, and I'm so pleased with my loot! My boyfriend and his neice were around when I was unwrapping it and both were really impressed with the goodies!

So, with my lovely old lady assistant Madeline, let me introduce you to my new shinys. Cheesy

Something related to your favourite musician/band...
CDs of Regina Spektor and Tori Amos, neither of these I have heard much before, but I have to say I am really loving them now I have them! Particularly Regina Spektor, which is Lauras favourite! Cheesy

My favourite fabric...
Laura tells me in her notes that she this is her favourite fabric and she didn't have much left but wanted to sew me a bag as they're her favourite things to sew! Let me tell you Laura, I LOVE both the bag and the fabric. I adore crafted bags and this is very special. *hughughug*

Something made with yarn...
Waaah bring on winter, I'm ready for yer! Laura didn't know this, but I love scarves of all varieties. This is perfect, and also matches a hat I have!

My favourite craft supply/tool...
Both Laura and I are really into magazines, and this magazine she sent will be very useful when I next have a season of crazed beading, as I often do in November, for reasons unknown to me. Maybe its instinctive. Like hibernating.

Something relating to your pets...
Both Laura and I have a cat, mine is called Artemis and Lauras is called Cookie, and we both love 'catty' stuff! Laura included this beautiful bag that she picked up at a local craft fair to represent Cookie. I adore it!

My favourite jewellery item...
Laura loves cameo jewellrey and charm bracelets and made me these beautiful items! She must have worked her little butt off because they're gorgeous!! Very nearly lost them to Chloe, my boyfriends niece.

Something that helps me stay organised...
Laura made a craft apron for herself recently and found that it was very useful, so she made one for me! Laura, you gem! I love aprons, I work all darn day in the kitchen with all manner of tools, and this is so ideal for my every day work in the bakery.

Something I collect...
Laura collects Russian Dolls and stationary, so this combo nailed this catagory! I love note cards with a passion, so this has gone into my writing draw to join my card stash, glitter pens, stamps and address book just begging to be used. Cheesy

Something related to my favourite book...
Lauras favourite book is Alice in Wonderland - BINGO! I love Alice. Earlier this year I arranged myself a Wonderland Tea Party for my birthday but had to cancel as no one could come. Sad But these gorgeous post cards totally make up for it, and they're going into frames in the bathroom Cheesy

Something local...
A few leaflets of some local attractions, plus some pretty goodies from local craft fairs and such. <3 Butterflies and leopard priiiint. <3

Something in your favourite colour...
Laura is a fiend for pastel blue and pinks, and put together this gorgeous wall art piece which i am so impressed with. Its gorgeous, and totally my thing. Our guest bedroom is pink currently, and is going through a refurb, so this is going to look gorgeous in there when its all complete!

Thank you so much Laura! I love it all! It was really special to finish a month of intensive crazy work to relax and open this and feel treasured. <3 Thank you so much also for being okay with my parcel being late. Starting a business is chaos, and unpredictable, but it will be with you soon!

Hi all! I recieved my lovely apron from frosty772 yesterday, just moments before I ran out the door with all my produce for a small stall I was holding with my bakery out on a rainy day in the middle of a field for an event, so took it with me and though Tammy (frosty772) would like to see it in action!

I love it! Thank you so much!

I recieved from scrummy Samsara, and you know you're all jealous.

i LOVE it, and haven't taken it off since getting it, and most likely will wear it to bed. Mwaha. Excuse lack of make up and eye brow maintenance.

I am whats commonly known as a jammy cow...  Grin

Look at the awesome goodies Sirensrising sent me!!!

I was in hysterics with happiness when it arrived!

My awesome lootage!

I have a Dress Your Own Tonks Kit Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy
I'm snuggling up after my day of housework and cooking with something nice to eat [possibly from inspiration also from my package xD ] and i'm colouring in and cutting out and playing :3

I LOVE journals and notebooks, so this is perfect for me! A marauders map book!! I'm even on it! Cheesy Tried to take a picture of my name but it came out fuzzy so blah.
It even has an extendable ear marker! Tis amazing.

I has me a Tonks doll!!! Shes gorgeous! She is going to sit with star bear and birthday puppy on my stereo Cheesy

My awesome DA shirt of uber pwnage. Mineminemine. Fits perfectly, and the patch is placed in just the right area so it doesnt stretch across my expanse of boobies.

This is spooky, i dont think i even mentioned it to Sirensrising, but i adore her style of artwork, and i feel it is really enchanting. I was so pleased when i found this gorgeous original in my package! I'm hoping she'll personal swap with me a few more times so i can have a set for my wall. Smiley
I believe the it is titled 'Fair Ravenclaw' unless i miss read your handwriting Sirensrising!

And lookit this gorgeous folder made from beautiful paper, ribbons and patchworks of paperclippings you can see through the slightly transparent outerlayer of paper, isn't it lovely... it gets better...

Its full of scrumptious Wizarding Recipes!!! xD So many things i want to try, and i'm going to have a bash at making something this even for dessert after the roast im making. Nomnomnom.

I'm so seriously thrilled with my package. Sirensrising is a great partner, she made me so so happy. You must have worked so so hard on it all, and i'm so impressed. Just amazing, and so rewarding as this is my first swap ever.
