21  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: OWS Gallery and Discussion Rounds 116, 117, 118 on: September 06, 2015 08:41:13 PM
I bought the same Star Trek book twice  Roll Eyes There is one I borrowed from a friend in high school that I always look for in used book stores, I thought I found it because it had a similar title... I got so excited I bought it right away. On the way home I was flipping through it to read a funny passage to my then-boyfriend/now-husband when I realized it wasn't the right book, then I found out I already had that one at home  Tongue Still haven't found the one I've been looking for. lol


I finished constructing my journal for rscowtown today and started filling it with destructive prompts  Cheesy This is the first journal I've made where I haven't worried about any mistakes because they can only add to the final product  Wink I would love to see some vids of you wreaking it! Or pictures of what you do to it  Cheesy

I claim rscowtown for a Wreck This Journal (sounds too fun to pass up)
1/0/0

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!

Hello! I'm 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.

Some specific boards that I would love to be claimed for:
Crafty Wishes anything similar/inspired by these would be great
Crafty Supplies used and scraps are fine!
Fabric Wishes again, scraps are fine. Anything similar to these would also be great. I'm currently working on a quilt using all shades of blue, so I would love more blue patterned fabrics (enough to cut four 5" squares, and they don't have to be solid blue, just mostly blue Wink ). these are just a "few" of the fabrics I've found online that I like but I can use anything! I'd prefer only 100% cotton though
Crafty Gifts I'll admit it; I want some of these for myself

Feel free to look through any board on My pintrest to find inspiration, there are many things in my other boards I would love to receive!

Please don't claim anything from the future kids and wedding board (as I don't have kids yet and the wedding is over). I don't have pierced ears, so no earrings please.
