Post your goodies here!
Excited to see what everyone creates!
I have received!
@Bunny1kenobi sent me a great swap package!
A group shot without the bookmark, as it’s already in a book.
She sent these lovely pussywillow/cat notecards & envelopes that she made off a piece of cat art I had pinned. I LOVE them. Already planning which of my friends gets one!
Here’s the teabag bookmark already at work!
Oops, and the magnetic KIT-TEA notepad is already on the fridge.
Then she made me jewelry based on my favorite game - so sweet to do that! The game is Sky: Children of the Light (iOS, Android, Switch, and soon other platforms!). It’s all about friendship & helping others, art & music, all lovely things. And in the game, you can ride on giant mantas in the sky! Day versions & night versions. She sent me night version earrings & keychain! No one has ever crafted Sky fan art for me before!
And she added in a pair of sweet silver earrings which are so me.
Here is an in-game shot, she got them spot on!
Thank you so much, @Bunny1kenobi, it’s all wonderful.
Yay! I’m glad you like everything!
What a cool swap package! I love that she did an homage to your favorite game. And the cat and tea things are adorable!
Great start to the gallery! Kit-tea is so clever!
Lol! Thanks! I totally stole it from something I saw online.
So creative! Just love those!
So nice. Those lovely cats
My package from Myrthena arrived this week! Sadly I had a couple days of migraines so I couldn’t get on the computer. But all better now, so on with the goods!
It was quite a big box! The first item I opened was this big hat. It’s a combination of my love for a steampunk aesthetic and reused materials. Look at all the details!!
I’m quite interested to know what the main material for the hat is, is that the inner tube of a bicycle wheel?
There were all little presents and box thingies, loved to unpack it!
Next up, she made me two pairs of earrings!
The steampunk one broke but I fixed it with jumprings.
Inside the wheels there’s also flowers and resin!
Then a very cool pair with violets (am I right? or is this another flower?) and glittery resin.
Then I found a little scrap of fabric with the reason why the package was smelling so good! A little soap! Did you make it yourself Myrtena? It smells really good!
And I’m not finished yet! She made me a steampunk organizer with a lovely closing device!
It’s filled with little paper goodies
And also a bookmark with my name!
Thank you very much Myrthena, it was a lovely package!!
You are right: it’s the inner tube of a bicycle wheel, You can see it on the right side where i used the bicycle valves as ornaments with a wheel and a flower on top.
And the soap is homemade with rosewater.
I’m happy your like it.
Rosewater soap! No wonder it smelled nice. I can’t wrap my head around how you made the hat, @Myrthena. If it is made out of a bicycle tube, how did you get it to hold its shape? Those earrings are very cool! Love the little flowers.
Wow! That package is amazing!
I looove the flowers in resin in the earrings. I used to have a set of gauges like that but they broke. I wore them all the time! How cool!
The base is is a big circle of polystyreen of 2 cm thickness. Then i had 3 layers with a smaller diameter: 2 of 5 high (bottom and purple) one of 3 cm (one on top with all the squares of bicycle tube). Those are fixed with little black needles i use for flower arrangements.
The big circle is done with long stroke of bicycle tube and also fixed with little and somelong black needles. That part has been polished with a little bit of sunflower oil (very little)
@Abbeeroad : flowers are dried at home in silica gel
This is not a real gauges: it’s made of the lid of a spray bottle (it was gold) with some bicycle tube on top and bottom and the glass is make of a piece of holographic paper
Oh my goodness!! I received a beautiful empemera/sticker scrappy book from @Reinikka for my larger item and some beautiful ATC’s for my small item. . Thank you so much! I absolutely love them! And all the goodies you stuck inside the pockets! I am over the moon,… And by brain is “squeee” ing right now! Lol Stickers are one of my favorite things and cute ones especially! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
These are just a few pages. There are more!
@Reinikka does do some beautiful paperwork! What a wonderful package, stuffed with so many little surprises.
Still amazes me what people can make with what they have…this is such a creative swap.
I am blown away by the bike tube fascinator!
Also, the sticker book is really neat…love the sewn binding…will there be a separate post on it?
can’t wait to see what other goodies appear here!
