This is a belated photo of what the superbly talented THE RAGING SLOTH sent me for a personal swap that I requested with her.

I saw the sea turtle stuffie she made for gotgrey in the 'Under The Sea' swap and my eyes bugged out of my head!  Shocked<------(like that  Wink)  I HAD to have one!  Luckily, The Raging Sloth agreed to a personal swap and I am so happy she did.

The fabrics, colors, and stitches she used on the turtle are amazing...I never tire of looking at him.  BTW, his name is Milo.  Cheesy  She was also kind enough to send stickers for my DDs, a sea turtle magnet, and sea turtle charms!

3  Secret Santa swap, anyone? in New Swap Theme Ideas by LadybugsAndBumblebees on: October 05, 2014 08:19:01 AM
We've had these in the past and I know of at least two people that would be interested in joining if another one started up.  I'm thinking signups would have to be soon if we were to do this to get it done before the holidays.

How it works is that you get a Craftster's info. and you stalk them and make a package for them.  Another Craftster gets your info. and stalks you and sends you a package.  Nobody says who they have until opening day!

Please let me know what size swap you think this should be in your replies.  I am thinking a large, medium, and small-but I know that may be a lot for people this time of year.

I don't know how to post links to previous swaps, but I used the 'advanced search' button to find past Secret Santa swaps.  Just type in 'Secret Santa swaps'.

I'd be willing to organize.

This is the photo of my offering for this swap:  a "scoodie"! 

(It is being modeled by the world-wide famous 'Slothy', made for me by gotgrey.)

As you can see, it is a hood and scarf combination, made with white/turquoise/and black.  At the end of the scarf portion on both sides, there are pockets-for your hands, money, credit cards, etc..  The hood has a decorative edging, and on the underside of the scarf is the "maker's mark" label.

 Grin Grin Grin Grin  (I should go into advertising, shouldn't I?!!)

*I will modify this post to show the "extras" I want to include with this, once they are bought.*

I realized as I was getting ready for work this morning, that I had created an unintentional shrine to sea turtles in the corner of my bedroom!  Grin
(Of course it's crooked...)
Anyhow...the wall quilt on the door is an angel package item from one of the ongoing swaps awhile back, the wallet is from the most recent 'Make me a purse and wallet' swap, and then the EPIC felted item is from the talented PETSKIN!  Cheesy

This is the EPIC piece of artwork that I received as my angel package for this swap from the very talented felting fingers of our famous petskin!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  She went with my love of sea turtles and this piece of work is truly amazing!  Right now, I have it hanging from the knob of the curio cabinet in my bedroom.  I may move it.  I just want to be able to look at it as often as possible!  And as if that is not enough...(darn it, the photo is crooked)

...she sent extras!  A lovely note that incorporated some ORANGE washii tape, ORANGE "starfish"  Wink paperclips, and a box that held THREE SANDDOLLARS from Pisno Beach!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I received from my talented, generous, and friendly partner-BriannaB03 today!  Here's the goodies:

This is a photo of the wonderful gift bags she sewed for me to use as wrapping for holiday gifts!  I truly think that incorporating handmade into any gift for someone really adds to its significance.  I already know where the one with the roses is going, and I already know what the recipient is going to say:  "So beautiful...so beautiful!"  Cheesy

This is a photo of the TWENTY FIVE paper bows she made me to attach to the gifts I give out at holiday time!  Aren't they awesome??!!  Shocked

This photo is of four handmade soaps that Brianna made for me to include in the bath sets that I'm making to give out as gifts for the holidays.  My DD and I think they are so pretty and smell soooo good!

Thank you so much partner  Cheesy!  I love my swap package and I hope you get yours soon!

Ok...feast your eyes!  The superbly talented AND generous brandy agreed to do a personal swap with me, for some extraordinarily beautiful and well made zipper pouches.  When I told her I could really use 30, she asked if I was crazy (BTW...the answer is yes!  Wink), but then she sent so many items it was like Xmas-and none of it is for me!   Grin

The first photo shows the aforementioned zipper pouches, plus ladybug themed ribbon and a bumblebee stamp!   Cheesy  So thoughtful...  It also shows these really nifty wallet-type items that you could use as a checkbook holder, money, etc...  She made three of these and included a dollar in one of them!  Shocked  (I was laid off for the summer and still haven't received a full paycheck yet...that dollar made me smile!  Roll Eyes)

The second and third photos show a "sleep-over" set that she said were for my DDs...they both have drawstring bags, a toiletries zipper pouch, and a pillowcase!  What a great idea!

She also sent me a lovely note on cute crafted stationery.  Cheesy

My package to you is not nearly as wonderful or generous and I am indebted to you....just let me know what you want.....

I first have to apologize to ActsofCraftiness for my not contacting her sooner to let her know that I received this wonderful claim, or to post photos.  We had training last week at a place that's about 40 miles away from my home and it was just so tiring, all I did when I got home was eat and sleep.

But as you can see, the claim is AWESOME!  She sent some butterfly bunting, butterfly cutouts, and butterfly & dot confetti for my DD's upcoming Bat Mitzvah in June!  I LOVE IT!  Thank you so very much!

(I'm sorry the photo came out crooked, I'm not sure why it did.)
