Crafts, masks and things

I haven't been posting here as often. I still have to make some more things for the 12 days of Christmas swap on Craftster. I also need to make masks for the Youth formal this friday night. It's a masquerade ball. So it should be fun. And I'm trying to get my christmas shopping all done. I've still got quite a bit to do. Sigh. I want to get it out of the way

Here are some photos from what I received from the Pink swap on swap-bot.

There was a cute little frame, a mini address book, a pink lipgloss, a mud mask, 2 bits of candy, 3 strawberry shortcake pencils, a hello kitty pen, a mini pacer, mini bath confetti and a little mobile phone sock. A sweet little swap package.

I was involved in a christmas stocking swap on craftster and I have pics of what I sent. So here it is -->This is the whole lot. There's the stocking that I had to hand sew and I decorated it, its very childish =( I painted that photo frame with a pic of Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire (my partner liked their movies), a little painted jewellery box, some chocolate, chupa chup lollipops, a hand bound book, 4 pairs of earrings, a necklace, 2 bracelets, tea, some mini coin purses and a stencilled singlet. I also make lip balm but they didn't make the picture. And those christmas crackers are made by me, but it is from a kit.

This is a closer pic of the frame. That little quote on the bottom I had to decoupage it on the frame. The quote says " Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did only backwards and in high heels."This is the jewellery box. I decoupaged that pic on it. Its from Narnia coz my partner liked narnia books and the movie.This is my childish stocking. I can't sew. So this is handsewn.

This the bound book. It's not the best. I wish I could learn to make them better.
This is one of the earrings. It's simple but I do like them.

This is a pair of Jack Skellington from the Nightmare before christmas earrings. I used shrinky dinks to make it.
The other pair of earrings. I love these ones. I have fun making them but they can be a bit fiddley.This is the last pair of earrings. I love the chandelier drops =)
This is the shell bracelet. I have one like this and I didn't realise that it was so easy to make.

This is the necklace. I was trying to copy a design that my partner admired but I ended up winging it. It's not too bad.This is the stencilled singlet. It's an aladdins lamp. She liked the movie.

This is the lip balms that I made. This is the first time I made them. They're not too bad but I'm going to put a colour in them.
This is the bracelet that I made. It kind of matches the first earrings.

All the tea, chocolate and chupa chups.

So thats it. I can't believe I was able to put that many pics. It's probably not that interesting. Next time hopefully pics of what I received and what I've made for the 12 days of christmas swap.

Just chillin'

Well I was meant to be going to the coast but it fizzled out for me. So I'm sitting here posting on Narniaweb, checking out ebay and lots of bits and pieces.

I wanted to post some pics of what I recieved from my pink swap Swap-bot and what I sent off for my christmas stocking swap with Craftser but all my pics are on Jasons camera. Mine has gone weird and won't even turn on anymore sigh.

There's so many things I have to do so really I should go off and do them now instead of bumming around the computer. I thought I would just do a bit of a catch up post I guess.

This is a really meaningful video. It makes me cry. That father is amazing and his son will definately know that he loves him. What he does for his son just blows me away. It is such an incredibly inspiring thing.

My last week of uni

I have one exam left to go. It's on friday and I'm so excited that it's nearly finished for the year. While I am doing things in between exam prep I thought I would do a few quiz things. I just like to do them for fun =)

Your Toes Should Be White

A little funky and a little fresh, you're constantly evolving your flirting style.

Your ideal guy: A witty brainiac with hottie potential

Stay away from: Overly dorky guys who become obsessed with you

Hahaha I thought this was sweet.

You Are Cherry Kiss Lip Gloss

You're a total girly girl who's every guy is sweet on.
You take pleasure in the simple things in life, from cute t-shirts to stuffed animals.

Any guy needs to match your romantic idealism to win your heart, which is why few have.
No wonder Cherry your signature flavor. It's delicious, sugary, and fun - like you!

Does this sound like me??? lol
You Are a Halter Bikini

You're an athletic girl with a hot athletic bod to match.
And you've got a great tan, probably from all those beach volleyball games!

Hahahaha again. What you reakon Jase? =0)

You Can Hang With the Guys and the Girls

You've struck a good balance between girlie and laid back.
You can keep it casual but when you dress up, you are as girly as the next girl.

I think this one does sound like me. I'm not a total girly girl but still love the girly things and the sports and such.

You Should Wear Stovepipe Jeans

Sophisticated and classic, these slimming jeans look great in almost any context.
Pair them with low heels for a very classy yet casual look.

I do like this style anyway. And I guess these are pretty much skinny jeans which I wear.

Your Style is Sassy

Your date outfits are flirty and fun - and make guys smile
Occasionally you'll take a fashion risk, and it will pay off
You're up for flashing an inch or two of skin
But your general rule is to leave most of your bod to the imagination

I guess this is me???

You are White Chocolate

You have a strong feminine side with a good bit of innocence thrown in.
Whether your girlish ways are an act or not, men like to take care of you.
You are an understated beauty, and your power is often underestimated!

I do like white chocolate =)

Hmm, well I think thats enough for now =)

I am hoping to get another digital camera for christmas/bday coz mine has gone weird, which is pretty annoying considering it was my 21st present. So I will probly be getting another one.

I'll have more pics of my swaps up coz I'm making a ton of things. Yay.

In exam week!

I've had 2 exams already! So that means 2 more to go. Yay! Anyway, I have a few pictures to update. From another swap of mine from Swap-bot. It was a pink swap.
So here it is-->
This is everything. I made the cover of the journal and made the little coin purses and the earrings.
This is the first pair of earrings. The pic isnt that great though. I was in a rush.
This is the other pair of earrings. This is the same. The photo isn't the best.

I also went to a 21st a few weeks ago. So here are a few pics from there.
This is me and Jason at home before we left. It was a black and white cocktail. And there is the turtle tank behind =)
This is Jason, me and Mikey. The guy whose 21st it is.
This is me and Mikey. Well he used to be known as Mikez and I went to highschool with him. He used to call me FLIP!
And this is MJ and me. We go to uni together and used to do the same course. He's this awesome dancer. He knows Mike too. Well MJ knows everyone actually.

I have 3 more 21st bdays this month. EEpp! And plus christmas is coming and other family birthdays. Plus my swaps. I'm going to have no money left.

Anyway, not sure what else to say at the moment. Maybe WELCOME BACK THARA!! If she even sees this of course =P
