80's fantasy movie craft swap - sent.


so i finally sent out my 80's Fantasy Movie swap to Carmen from
http://whoopidooings.blogspot.com/

i was so excited to do this swap and even happier when i discovered that
Carmen's favourite movie was the Labyrinth {same as me}
and then the dreaded loss of mojo happened
i had so many ideas whirling around the maze of my mind but i couldn't settle on anything
i'd had an idea to make a needle-felted poisoned peach but didn't have the supplies
in the end i decided on a set of cards and a brooch




i got busy with glitter and vintage book vandalism
to embellish these images from the film



i also made a kilt-pin brooch with a small needle felted peach
- a dangling turquoise bead as this is a stone linked to friendship -
- a mother of pearl disc with the word "wish" -
- a diamonte tear drop -
- a heart charm - some clock hands -
- and a tiny black key -

*******

then i posted it out half expecting it to take a week to arrive
due to the postal strikes and was amazed when it arrived two days later
yay for the Royal Mail !
and even better Carmen liked her gifts - phew!

*******
i'm going to take a break from craft swaps - i'm getting really bad at hitting my deadlines
and i felt terribly guilty about being late this time
my saving grace was Carmen also being behind schedule.

Great swap items! I'm with Apryl, I can't decide between the cards or the brooch. I'm sure Carmen didn't mind waiting for such lovely items.

Carmen said...

Didn't mind at all and I'm more than a bit behind... I just hope I can match up to what you sent me. No-one and I mean NO-ONE is getting those cards - honestly, the pictures don't do them justice, I'm framing them. My daughter keeps trying to pinch the brooche, no chance ;)

Isn't it funny how we all focused on similar items? I wont say what yet ;)

I said the same about you and swaps and guess what? The last 2 days I signed up to two christmas ones - these are more an exchanging of stash though..Even I can't be late with that.

Thank you again Megan :)
