Summer 2015 Swap - Brag Thread!!

Postby katze016 » Thu Jul 30, 2015 3:22 pm

I thought I'd start us off since I received my swap box from twincheckers today.

Here it is just opened.

My birthday came early! I love all the festive ribbons and birthday confetti.

Everything out of the box. Tigers!! One for me and each of my cats to love. :D
And so many quest bars. Cookies and Cream is their best flavor!

New additions to my collection of vintage In My Pocket! Thank you so much! They're adorable.

A few RL Stine Fear Street books to add to my little collection.

I also got two beautiful bookmarks; a golden feather, and a silver butterfly. A cool solar powered flashlight key chain. And a magazine featuring the beautiful tigers at the San Diego Zoo.

Thank you so much!! I love everything and feel so spoiled. :D If I ever make it out to California I'll definitely have to go visit those pretty tigers.

Aren't they!! They remind me of the McDonald's teenie beanie babies from back in the day. :D

I got my awesome box from Kate! :D
It's full of awesome things! :D

(I really should take individual photos of everything, but at the moment I just took this photo. And doesn't everything look so cool all together??)

Thanks so much! It's so thoughtful how you combined the theme, my interests, and your local area into such a neat gift! I love my little electronic monarch. I did not know that it was the state butterfly of Minnesota. Its really cool how it flaps its wings when you hold him. I have him sitting on my bedside table. (also, the girl in the photo on the packaging looks just like a brown-eyed version of me at that age!)

The party blow outs are SO special! I can just imagine the magical parties little kids would have had with themed items like these. I would definitely have loved a Littlest Pet Shop party when I was little. (or even now ;) )

Those nut rolls are yummy! So much so one didn't even last long enough to make it into the photo ;) I haven't tried the other goodies yet, but they look good.

And so..many..stickers!! You can't see them all in the photo. I haven't even had a chance to go through them all yet. I can't wait to go through and put them all in order where they belong.

Oh so much fun! :)

Yay!! I'm so glad that you like everything!

I spent at least 20 minutes playing with all the butterflies when I found them in ToysRUs. I'm definitely going to have to pick one up for myself at some point. And I think I included all the stickers left on your wishlist, but if I missed any let me know. I still have a bunch of them.

Those customs are seriously cool!! Did you use an airbrush to get that effect on the dog, Waylah?

I had never thought to use that pony piece as a bird stand. I think I'll be adding my own menagerie of birds to my list of custom projects now. :D

Yup, I' made heavy use of the airbrush. It's great for things like the white on the pony's feet. I'm happy with how they turned out. Fortunately they were not as tricky as the snow leopard I made for the winter swap, where I airbushed each little semi-circle spot separately. Hooray for the airbrush!

I might have to invest in one of those when I get to the more detailed projects on my customs list. I'll definitely need one when I get around to making my Fashion Ponies. Baby steps though. First I need to master the basic paint brush. :P

Waylah, would you mind making a short video next time you do a custom? I'd love to see how the airbrush works on such small pieces! :D
