11  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: OWS Gallery and Discussion Rounds 116, 117, 118 on: September 25, 2015 07:43:17 AM
I'm still here! Just been less talkative...

I received a stuffed box of supplies from sheepBlue this week and will try to get pics taken tomorrow. I have some fun fabric to show off  Cheesy

rscowtown received the journal I sent her and I can't wait to see how she gets into it  Wink

And I claimed Lo{ve} for some fabric numbers. I'm enlisting my husband and his printer to get some number templates since my hand drawn ones aren't so good  Smiley But I do have some fabric set aside for them!

I might need to hold off on claiming for a while because I'm going to audition for a play and I don't know what kind of time commitment that will be yet (assuming I get in). Other than that I've been busy working and I'm ready for the weekend!  Cheesy

Hello! Im Reinikka Smiley I recently moved back home to Washington where my husband and I bought our first house together Cheesy We live with our two dogs. I would love things to decorate my home; wall art and table runners especially. My favorite colors are blues and earthy tones, I also love tacky things like bright orange. Im really into jellyfish right now and have always loved skunks.

I love surprises so please dont feel limited to what I have on my list, check out my pinterest and if anything inspires you please be creative! Cheesy

I have no allergies unless you plan on sending me preserved pork. Oh, and I do not have pierced ears, so no earrings please!

I think that's a good idea too. Could also add crafts you make, like I could pin pictures of journals I've made so if someone likes my style they could pin it, then I'd know I can claim them for one  Smiley
