1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Altered Puzzle Pieces, Round 9 on: July 25, 2014 08:37:55 PM
My two newest international city pieces are courtesy of camezzo.  The Beijing piece features the name of the city written in Chinese script (which ends up being the same in Japanese, so I could actually read it!  Grin)



German is a complete mystery to me however, so thankfully camezzo included a translation in the accompanying card of the saying on the Berlin piece:



"Berlin is more a part of the world than a city."

Thanks for the wonderful pieces!

camezzo, I'm sorry for the awful flash in those pics, so feel free to post your own if you have better ones.

Oh, I LOVE Ninnis.  Do you have an idea for dates, Smmarrt?

Artmomto5, I was chuckling to myself when you posted whatthepuck's pieces back on Page 1, since she did both a Mickey and an UP piece as well.  Wink

These two pieces from Luvebuggy99 are for my domestic puzzle.  Seattle:



and my hometown of San Antonio:



Thank you dear!  Kiss

I received two great 3-D pieces from cmarion3 today!  Rome features homemade columns, which I'm guessing are made out of poly clay.  (Sorry for the sideways pic):



Barcelona is sporting the "Barcelona Cathedral" (Cathedral of the Holy Cross and Saint Eulalia):



She brilliantly turned the name into a looped 3-D element (so it both saves space and adds visual interest on the piece -- I am totally stealing that technique in the future  Wink):



Loving my pieces so far!
5  Craft Swaps / ACTIVE SWAPS WHERE SIGN-UP PERIOD HAS CLOSED / Re: Mini 13 Days of Halloween Rnd 6 CLOSED on: July 22, 2014 10:30:48 AM
When Halloween falls on a weeknight, we usually don't pass out candy (since we may not be getting home from work until 8 pm or so).  And because one of my best friend's birthday is on Halloween, we often go out if it falls on a weekend.  But even when our porch light is off, we usually get at least three or four rings of the doorbell.  If we are home this year though, I'm thinking I may go ahead and buy candy.

Got some more crafting done on Saturday with friends -- one item is totally finished (not the one I anticipated completing first, incidentally).  Had a really cool idea for some supplies I found -- hoping it will turn out well.  Wink

Just checking in for the week.  Mailed out 4 sets on Wednesday, so six left to go.  Hoping to get at least three done in the coming week.

WOW, what an awesome package!  Mr. Drippy looks great in both his forms, and the felted Moogle is just wonderful!  I am uber-jealous.  Wink

Co-Organizer's Note

Due to technical limitations (i.e., the fact that I will not be able to edit the claim totals post that kosmicgirl started at the beginning of the month over in the claims thread), this message will be the home of the updated claims totals for the remainder of the July Swap.

Please remember to continue sending me all PMs for the rest of July.  Thanks!

- John
