11  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / A Valentines Day Swap??? on: December 30, 2014 12:16:12 PM
I don't think I did any Valentines day swaps last year and that made me sad Sad  So this year I want to throw some ideas out early!  We could do a general swap with a few V-day items, we could do altered matchboxes or tins, a Valentines themed Once you pop, a secret admirer (like secret santa) or something!  Anyone interested in celebrating the love??  What kind of swap sounds like fun?

13  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Cupcake Ornaments on: December 15, 2014 09:55:59 AM
While stalking my partner for the Secret Santa swap I stumbled on a pin for these super cute cupcake ornaments.  I decided to make one for her and one for my partner in the stocking swap.  I used mini cupcake liners, mini bulbs, fake snow,  a red bead, and seeds beads to make these ornaments. 

I wish I had used more fake snow on them, especially the blue one.

14  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Christmas Jewels on: December 15, 2014 09:41:39 AM
I made necklaces for all of my Christmas swap partners this year.  Lots of pendants for 3 wonderful ladies.

For Thimbles71 I made this cluster pendant

For kittykill I made a mini snowglobe pendant and a cluster pendant

For quaggy I made a snowflake pendant

I also made her a felt brooch

Now I need to make some of these for myself!
15  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Winter on: December 15, 2014 09:37:37 AM
I started this project last year for the Friends of Craftster Raffle swap but it never got finished.  I pulled it out and finished it as my submission for the December theme in the Ongoing Hoopla Stitchalong.  The pattern is from Urban Threads  I used a back stitch and chain stitch.

I am not sure that I would ever use a chain stitch as a fill stitch in the future since I have discovered better ways to fill but I think it looks nice.
16  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Retro Camper on: December 15, 2014 09:29:47 AM
I was partnered with quaggy in Secret Santa Swap and I knew she liked hoops.  I browsed designs on Etsy and when I saw this one I knew it had to be made for her.  It's a Retro Camper by Lova Revolution

When I printed the design out I had meant to make it smaller so it would fit in a 6 or 7 inch hoop.  Ooops!  Luckily I had this big old hoop laying around which fit the design perfectly.  I also found it nice to stitch a bigger design.  It was a happy mistake!

The only issue I had is when I rinsed off the stabilizer it made the fabric wrinkle in a few places and I couldn't get them out even with the iron... 
17  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Felt House Ornaments on: December 12, 2014 08:36:13 AM
My partner in the Mini 12 Days of Christmas swap had these house ornaments pinned.  I clicked the link to the seller on Etsy PitterPattery and found that she sells them already assembled.  After some messaging back and forth she agreed to sell me the same set but just the pieces so that I could sew them up myself.  I made a set of four for the Sweat Shop Ornament Swap and a set of four for my 12 Days partner.

Here are the ones I sent to my partner in the 12 Days Swap

and this is the set I sent out for the Ornament Swap
18  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Christmas Kumihimo Bracelet on: December 12, 2014 08:13:11 AM

I made this Christmas Kumihimo bracelet for Thimbles71 in the Mini 12 Days of Christmas Swap. 
19  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Embroidered Ornaments on: December 09, 2014 12:20:07 PM
I made these two embroidered ornaments for Thimbles71 in the Mini 12 Days of Christmas swap.  They are done with a backstitch in 3 inch hoops.  The patterns are part of the Gingerbread embroider pattern pack from KimberlyOuimet

20  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Mason Jar Ornament on: December 05, 2014 01:32:38 PM
I made this wee snowman ornament for my partner in the stocking swap.  I used a vintage snowman and glued him to flat part of a mason jar lid.  Then I glued that into the ring and embellished with some sparkles.  I cut two holes in the lid to add a pretty dangle and some twine so he can be hung on the tree.
