2  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Project Night Night! on: January 16, 2016 08:30:24 AM
I was heavily involved in donating completed bags to shelters for Project Night Night.  Then I found Craftster  Wink and stopped being involved with Project Night Night for several years.  I've now found a way to happily combine both!  Grin

Here is a photo of a complete Project Night Night bag; which contains a book, crib sized blanket (that I crocheted) and a stuffed bear:

(sorry for the sideways photo)

Project Night Night bags are considered "complete" with those three items.  However, I like to add extras when possible:

I try to always add a nightlight b/c I figure what can be scarier than being expected to sleep in the dark in a new environment for a young child?  I always add bookmarks b/c you can find them for free anywhere.  The other extras pictured are from what I found while cleaning out my girls' playroom.  I'll add them to the bags as a surprise.

This is such a great cause, the people who run it are wonderful, and it gives me such fulfillment to take part in such a great cause!
3  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / How about a January birthday swap? on: January 03, 2016 11:40:02 AM
I know that the birthday swaps have been done in the past, but since this is my birthday month, I was hoping someone would start this one up!  Grin Wink

I'm organizing another swap so I can't org this one.

Anyone?

5  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / What about a 'Keep Me Warm' swap? on: December 20, 2015 02:53:38 PM
This has been a popular swap in the past, and what better time for it then after the holidays?

It's one of my favorite swaps!

I can't organize this swap b/c I'm organizing another swap after the holidays, but I would love it if someone else could!

Please?  Wink
6  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / How about a 'Woodland Creature' swap? on: December 20, 2015 02:52:11 PM
There have been previous rounds of this swap and it's always so much fun!  And it can encompass all woodland creatures, and their environments!

I'm organizing the 'Make Me a Purse and Fill It' swap after the holidays, but I'm hoping someone would like this swap enough to organize.

Anyone?  Cheesy
7  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / When Mailing Out Packages.... on: November 23, 2015 09:19:08 AM
PLEASE BE CAREFUL AND GIVE IT EXTRA TIME!!!!!!  WRAP YOUR ITEMS WELL!!!!!!!!!!!

I am writing this b/c in two of the swaps I recently was in, there was issues with the packages getting to where they were supposed to be on time, according to the PO and tracking.  I'm talking like a week late, with barely any updates on the USPS site.

In one of the swaps, I received the box, beaten up, with a note from the USPS that the box got damaged in transit...yada, yada, yada...

I just did a personal swap with someone here on Craftster, and this person used UPS to mail her package.  It just came to me with the ENTIRE TOP FLAP open!!!!!!!!!!  When I asked the UPS man what happened, he shrugged and said: "They must've put other boxes on top of it."

Errggghhhh....
8  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Cork Xmas Trees! on: August 14, 2015 10:04:50 AM
Unfortunately I haven't been able to really be a part of Craftster these past few months, like I used to, and it makes me really sad.   Cry

However, I love to share the things that I am making (crafting without a deadline doesn't stress me out)!

Here's my new creation:




The items in the baggie are to decorate the tree if the person I give it to wants too.

I wish I were able to drink Wink but I purchased a bag of corks at a garage sale a few years back and finally found a fun use for them, thank goodness!

I'm pleased with myself!  Wink
