 The weather is getting warmer and the forest is starting to wake up from its winters nap. Foxes and owls are scurrying about while being watched intently by the fairies and gnomes. Now is the perfect time to celebrate this.
 Bring your love of Woodland Creatures and Enchanted Forest alive in a craft swap! This swap will be for 1 Medium and 2 smalls. You can spoil but please communicate this with your partner.
 There has been a bit of confusion as to what is a large, medium, and small item.  So here's a handy dandy guide.  This is a guideline ONLY: a rough estimate of sizes described by time it takes to make package, by physical size and by cost:

By Time
-Large = 3 or more hours
-Medium = 2 or more hours
-Small = 2 or less hours

By Size
-Large = A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
-Medium = one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
-Small = Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

By Price
-Large = $30 or more
-Medium = $10-$30 dollars
-Small = $10 or less


 No one like to be flaked on, so if you aren't sure if you can do this swap, don’t sign up.
 If you know you will be late or unable to complete the swap please let us know ASAP.
Communication is a must. Everyone is required to post up on the thread at least once a week to let us know they are still involved with the swap. If you do not post up it will be noted in your feedback. If you are going on vacation or will be away from the internet just let us know.

 Delivery Confirmation is required within the U.S., please send tracking number to both your partner and organizer when you send. Mailing receipt need to be kept if sending elsewhere.
 PM both your Partner and your team organizer when you send and receive.

 Please post pictures of what you receive. Your partner worked hard on it and we would all love to see it! If you cannot post up please let your partner know as soon as you know. Make sure you take pictures if everything you send just in case.

3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Mother's Day Purse on: May 11, 2014 02:36:25 PM
 My Mom saw the other purses that I made and asked me to make her a purse for Mother's Day. She has never asked for a purse before so I was really excited to make her one. We went to the store and she picked out the fabrics. I thought they were very pretty. I told her I wouldn't get the zippers in on time but I did (thank you zipit zippers!) and was able to have it finished and surprise her.  Grin
 I gave it to her about an hour ago and she was surprised and really liked it.

 The wall is light blue so it makes the colors a little weird.

 Here is the outside pocket with the magnetic snaps.

Outside in the garden, liked the colors better out here.

and with the straps down...

 I already have my next bag picked out. I can't wait to do another pattern. LOL!
 Thanks for looking.  Smiley
4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Octopus & Alice Cross body bags on: May 08, 2014 08:02:46 AM
 I made these two purses for recent swaps. The pattern is pretty simple but I had the hardest time understanding it at first. I was told it was written for quilters and I have never quilted so I found it really confusing. Also there was only one pattern piece and you had to measure everything else out yourself. That drove me bonkers. After I figured out the first one the second one went WAY quicker and was worlds less frustrating.
 The first one was for the IYP swap and it is a damask fabric with octopus on it. The patterns called for the fabric over the zipper and the fabric under the zipper to be different with different colored zippers on each side. I thought it looked a little classier with the same fabric above and below the zipper. One side has the cream zipper the other a matching blue. There are two pockets on the outside and then two additional zippered pockets out there. The inside had a pocket too.

I borrowed these pics from my partner, Luckdragon.

Blue zipper side

Front Pocket

Inside

 For this one I for the Fairy Tale swap and made the outside pockets a little taller to get more of the Alice in Wonderland fabric in. Both straps are adjustable and this one has the same colored zipper on both sides.

and this one is from Cryssoleil's posting too.


 My mom really liked them both an asked that I make her one for Mother's Day. She picked a beautiful batik fabric and I will post that one up when I get it done.
  Thanks for looking!
5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Hand Drawn Pendant Necklaces on: May 04, 2014 02:38:54 PM
 I am currently not involved in any swaps. I lack motivation without a deadline.  Tongue  So today I decided I would make some pendants just to get me doing something. I told my friend and she had a request of a unicorn one. I did cats and a bunny too cas I have those. Ha.

  Here they all are together. The smaller ones are 1" across. The larger unicorn one is 38 mm across. The chains are 24".

I liked this little kitty upside down. It reminds me of my cats while they nap.
,
The unicorn for my friend (Kwality570 who is giving it to another friend)

 I didn't realize how much I loved foxes until I started pinning things for another swap.  Wink

 I love bunnies. I have one and he is the most adorable thing ever!
,
 Cats in glasses.

and I random little mushroom.  Grin
 Feels good to have gotten something done today!
6  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Mermaid Moveable Paper Dolls on: April 17, 2014 12:15:39 PM
 I was recently in the Common Grounds 2 swap and my partner (PilarFarmer) and I both love mermaids. She had a lot of the moveable paper dolls on her Pinterest so I thought I would give it a try. I made one and had so much fun coloring and embellishing her that I make a book of sorts for Pilar to do the same. I printed out sheets of the outline in both black and sepia outlines onto thick cardstock and taped them together.
 Here are the results! My doll was colored using Copic Markers then I painted over the tail with shimmering gold paint but I don't think the picture shows it very well.

 and here is the booklet I made her opened so you can see the pages inside.
7  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Mermaid Drawing on: April 17, 2014 12:10:02 PM
 I drew this up for Pilarfarmer in the Common Grounds swap. She likes plus sized mermaids. I thought she turned out cute. As usual, it was done with Copics.

10  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Fairy Tale Swap on: February 26, 2014 08:58:47 AM

 I was thinking of a swap that would be based on Fairy Tales but not so much Disney. I like Disney but I wanted something a little more whimsical, or classic, or Grimm's type. I was thinking that we could list our three favorite Fairy Tales and our partner could do a medium and two smalls based on whichever they chose.
 What do you guys think? Would you be interested? Let me know!
