11  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Re: Tutorial: Wirework Necklace, featuring the Greenblue Burst Pendant! on: October 28, 2009 11:07:35 PM
amazing work! I know I could never do that great a job but maybe with all these great directions I might be more likely to not make as much of a mess as I have been known to do in the past!

thank you for sharing and while that pendant is a lovely piece, I think your wire work really makes it more showcased and lovely!

I am so glad that everyone has been so industrious in my unexpectedly long abscence...

I am hoping that I have kicked the yucks out of my system, but have so much to catch up on - will be going through PMs shortly and updating things in the feedbacks and checking the gallery now!

hugs and thank you to all who sent me healing thoughts and energies!

I got my parcel from ariaya long ago but didn't want to open it while I was ill so I opened it today finally with hopes that I am done and over with that flu stuff!

what a great cheer me up it is!  Grin

first off is this great little dragon with posable wings! ain't he grand! Kiss

then was a set of things that all matched! I love that!
notecards - I can always use more notecards:

a pair of drawstring bags from refurbished jean material that is lined with fabric that I love! sturdy and adorable! These I will be keeping forever!

a journal cover which is great!  Cheesy

and everything together with the extras - some halloween candy, and some paper crafty type ephmera which I might use soon, now that I am getting ready to actually get my partners package put together...  Roll Eyes

thank you so much for the great package ariaya, and for your patience with me while I was recovering!

I sent edelC some beads a while ago, and she sent me an absolute boon of drawstring bags for re-giftiing in swap packages and what not! I think there are 21 bags here! wow, huh?

and she drew a pic of me in a house of beads, sending packages to the world which I think is adorable but couldn't get a good pic so will try that again when the battery gets recharged (if you got a decent pic of it post it edel!)

I like the ones in the top left corner a lot (they have gold swirly all over) and the other blue ones

the ones with deer draw me a lot too - probably because they fit where I live as I watch for them all the time so I don't run over any, LOL!

thank you so much edel! the drawing is sweet and I need to find a place to put it!

I am moving so slow on getting things done because I have been sick what seems like forever!

today - I am getting packages open, pics taken and posted, and trying to catch up on Craftster and tomorrow I intend to get some swap crafting caught up on!

here is the wonderful package I got from SheepBlue probably about a week ago but I opened it today  Wink

she is great and did a wonderful job!

group shot of all the great stuff! 

there are two drawstring bags and six zippered pouches!

her first wood burnings! she did a great job on them!

and inside the box were these:

hand made rubber stamps, a bookmark, an intriquing metal unicorn, and inside one of the bags, inside the box, was this set of amazing element themed stitch markers!

a set of really great notecards! these all have dragonflies and different colored pages behind them - they are wonderful!

and I think this is the greatest thing ever! she knows I can't stencil, as no one ever taught me how! so she sent me cut stencils to do for my hubby, and directions on how to do it!

one says "I (pic of gun) zombies" and the other says "My Indian name is Runswithbeer" - both of which crack me up enough that I am going to have to make hubby these for sure once I get caught up on other things, because he will love them!

I kept thinking about that saying 'give a man a fish and he can eat today, teach a man to fish and he will eat forever' when I was looking at these dumbstruck, LOL!

thank you so much Sheepblue!

my pics don't look as good as Singalala's do, and they look tons better in person...

but here are my photos anyways...

the inchies which have no doubt contaminated me with a new craft addiction (soon you will see me on that new show 'intervention' if my hubby figures out what is going on and thinks to write them)

and the Japanese luck gods! now I have all of them and a couple extras!

she sent me some shells and stones as extras but somehow only part of them made it into the pic

more extras!

pages for all the elements, and also a pentacle and there was a drawstring bag that is sort of in there with everything - it is a sturdy one  Cheesy plus some chocolates I have managed to hide from hubby!

thank you so much singalala!

and this is the page I got from Kerallyn:

and here are almost all my luck gods together - somehow the first one I got which started all of this (Ebisu from edelC) didn't make it into this pic - but he is in with the rest of the pages for me to organize into some sort of a book or display!

how cool is all that!

ok - since I am so far behind I want to say that I love every single one of these cards and wish I could do them better justice!

from: sullengal (great job upgrading!) and hardyswanton (loved the saying about gypsy blood  Wink )

from: Nobodyhasthisoneyet (great use of texture!) and edelC (love the trip moon & I got stamps!)

from: hawkeyes_girl (adorable and great recipe but I like sugar, LOL!), phnxreign (magnet = awesome idea!), and Feywalker (just totally love the tree! cruddy pic of it though)

From: Ffrog526 ((just wow!) and of course Mar from missmuffcake (he looks great, but with attitude, LOL!)

thank you all!


ps - got the parcel with the cards opened and unpacked so will get cards addressed and sent out tonight!
