Oh my goodness I had no idea how cool octopi were until I saw the awesomness of this swap gallery! Cheesy

Allthoseyes where did you find that adorable octo stamp?

ebay!  There were several listings for him a couple of months ago, and they were all really cheap.  Isn't he the cutest?

I definitely thought owls at first.  Then the story of your boyfriend convinced me it was cats.  Now all these owl-minded crafsters have changed my mind again.  I'm too easily influenced!   Cheesy

But it's very cute either way.    Smiley
26  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Octopus/squid swap [SIGN UPS CLOSED. Send by 03/12/08] on: March 17, 2008 11:11:23 AM
I always feel that way but it always seems to take me longer to make things then it does other people so it's technically the right size but I always feel bad so I make extra's or add extras...heh...I also worry that my partners really dont like the things I sent but are just being super nice and saying they do like them....But I'm working on that so...yea  Grin Cheesy

doxiemommy, you have nothing to worry about!  Your package was amazing!!!  It was so great that it's making me abuse the bold feature.   Wink

I don't know why it's taking my stupid package so long to get to you, but I'm super anxious about it.  I really hope you like everything.

Guys, I don't know if you all are ready for the amazingness that I have in store for you.  So just prepare yourselves, okay?  Take a look at what I received from the super-talented and creative doxiemommy.


swap journal:

(The O was already there, but she cleverly painted the really cool octopus.)

a print from her favorite local artist:

I'm sorry it's blurry--it didn't look like that on my camera's display!  This is beyond awesome and it's going to hang in my craft room.  The artist's name is John Shepard and his website is http://radiographite.dreamhosters.com/.  I feel so fancy getting art in a swap!   Cheesy

magnets from my wist:

action shot with my other octopus magnets:

Look, my lobster has a special message!

a fantastic bag:

close-up of painted octo:

inside of bag:

I love how the fabrics look like little suckers or like bubbly ocean water.  Totally goes with the octopus theme.

tentacle jewelry (!!!!):

more tentacle jewelry (!!!!):

I can't even pick a favorite.  I love it all too much!  doxiemommy, thank you sooooo much for an amzing package.  And thanks to xx_Kellybean for organizing.

You guys have no idea how happy it makes me to see new pictures in this gallery!

JennyBrown, that's an awesome package!  I love the octopus applique on the bag.

Well good I hope the little greedy kid likes everything....I'm sending a bit more then I thought I would sooo yes...I hope you like it all!!

Me too!  Last night I laid everything out together and realized that I had made a lot more stuff than I planned.  I didn't mean to--it was just so fun!  Yeah, I just really hope that you like your stuff.  Guess we'll find out in a few days, huh?  (Now I'm getting nervous.)

I just wrote my note and I need to find a box to fit everything in and then I can send off I hope she likes everything!! EEEEE I'm excited... Grin

I will!!!
I still have to finish the last item (stupid freak snowstorm left me without power this weekend!), but I will be sending right on time tomorrow.  I'm excited about the stuff I made and I can't wait for you to get it.  But the greedy little kid inside me is more excited about the stuff I'll be getting!   Cheesy
