31  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Make-a-Friend Round 10: The Gallery on: July 16, 2013 11:54:19 AM
I just got home from being away for 6 days and had the best package waiting for me!

Leslie and I have a lot in common. She put together a wonderful package and here it is all together.


Here are some more specific pictures:
These are her favorite snacks and favorite craft supply. I love these scissors! This is my favorite size and I can always use another pair. The snacks look delicious. I think I will take them to work so I have something good to eat there when I get the munchies. Smiley


The crafted items are an adorable altered matchbox with a cute heart inside and a pincushion with a hard plastic card in the bottom to keep the pins from poking through.  I love the stitching on them both.


Her hobbies are reading and fitness. There is a cute patchwork bookmark and a pouch to hold an iPod. This will come in handy as I am going to be getting an iPhone the end of the month and it should fit in the pouch nicely.


For closer to home she made the cutest scissor fob with a kitty to represent her kitties. The stitching is so perfect! She also sent a kit of her Hope Hearts. She sends this kit to anyone who requests it through her blog. These are representative of her because they are hearts  Smiley and she likes doing things that help others with her crafting. They are so nice and how thoughtful to give to someone who is going through a rough time.


She tied everything up nicely with bakers twine, so now I have a little stash of fun twine.  Smiley
Thank you so much, Leslie, for everything! I can't wait to get started on your next package.

What great packages!
So much to like about all of them. The sewing ninja is great! Smiley

Leslie, I am so glad you like your package and I am glad the origami boxes arrived intact. I was worried that they might get smashed a bit in transit.

The bag is a tutorial I found here: http://whipup.net/2013/06/18/make-it-local-origami-market-bag/

I like the ones in her picture, but I didn't have any nice linen type fabric so I went big and bold.  Smiley

I can't wait to get home Monday because my hubby told me that my package from Leslie is waiting for me.  Smiley

I have one more item I want to work on today, then I should be set to box it all up.
I have lots of ideas for package 2 & 3, but I want to receive my first package about my partner before making any final decisions. Just want to make sure I make the right choices. Smiley

It's proving difficult for me to work on the first package.  I am not used to applying these things to myself rather than my partner!

DUDE! I am having the same problem! My husband says I am overthinking it. I told him that he's not the boss of me  Cheesy. It is a lot harder than I thought.

Same here! It has to be about me, but it still has to be something my partner would like to receive.  Hmmmm....

Lol! It sounds like we are all in the same boat.  Smiley
I did craft 1 item today that I am pleased with and have an idea for another. Then it is back to the list.
I am trying to chose things that tell something about me, but that my partner would want as well. I was checking out my partner's Pinterest boards this morning and that lead to a couple hours browsing pins and adding a bunch to my own boards.  Gotta love Pinterest!  Smiley

Just sent in my questionnaire. Leslieshappyheart kindly asked me to be her partner.
I am so excited!  Smiley

I am using 2 of my new coasters as I am sitting here having lunch and I used a scrubby last night when I did dishes. LOVE them!  Smiley

All the bags have been great. I like the idea of using laminated fabric for a bag.
Great swap; can't wait for the next round!  Smiley

I received from rscowtown and this package couldn't have been better!

The bag has books all over it which I love. So cute and perfect for bringing my stuff to book club!


The first round of extras are some great crocheted goodies. There are some pot scrubbers that will come in handy, cute orange coasters (we use coasters all the time and I can never have enough), and a cotton drawstring bag with little face scrubbies that I can't wait to use.


The second round of goodies has a little drawstring bag with pockets (this will be perfect to carry my handwork projects) and an insulated lunch bag. I love that it is tall so I can fit my water bottle in it and, of course, I LOVE the color. Smiley


Thank you so much for everything. I love it all!

Mailed my package today. Rscowtown should be receiving sometime this next week.
I hope you like it. Smiley

Wow, what great packages so far!
I love seeing how all the bags are so different even though they are the same pattern. And all the extras are amazing!

I have just a little hand sewing to finish on one item and then I have to get some packing tape so I can box everything up.  I should be mailing early next week.
