11  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Dotee Swap #13 Send out 11/30/12 on: November 25, 2012 08:17:24 AM
I have also received a lovely dotee from Dr. Craft. She combined my themes of growing, autumn and fantasy in a really creative way. Apparently this is also her first try at solid beading - I wouldn't have guessed it!

Thank you so much Dr. Craft Smiley
12  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Zine swap Gallery! on: November 25, 2012 08:12:22 AM
Well. I've now received all four of my zines. I arrived back home after a trip away to find three waiting for me. I've had a flick through them all and I look forward to reading them properly.

The first zine I received was the lovely one by Yoopidu about Hawaii. Unfortunately, I couldn't find it when I was taking all the pictures but I really enjoyed all the pages about kayaking - it really feels like a completely different world for me. I also thought that the mix of type and hand written bits worked very well. It is especially relevant as I have a flight booked for the USA on the 12th December and I'm going to go travelling. Even if I don't make it to Hawaii, this certainly whetted my travelling appetite. Again, a massive apologies for not putting pictures here, as soon as I find the zine I will edit to add pictures.

I received the zine Pug Love from lancmaltby. I really like the card you used on the zine and the very high quality printing. I can definitely see this as a very good coffee table zine to add a little bit of interest. It has a very whimsical feel.

I received the zine Brain Snippets from rougeraven. I haven't had a proper chance to read it but it looks very relevant to my life as I am finding myself in need of focusing more on my creative side (I lose too much time to that frenemy the internet!) I really like bird/godies insert, it added a lot of interest to the zine.

The final zine I have to share with you today is Stuf to do... by goddessgarb. THe suggestions that I've flicked through look really fun and I like the use of diferent type settings and the hand drawings. I think that this might end up in my hand bag for whenever I need a little bit of inspiration.

Thank you to RougeRaven for organising this fantastic swap, to all the people I've received from for the fantastic zines and for all the people I sent to for being so patient with my late sending.

Still haven't started with my dotees as I didn't have time to make up little craft bags but I'm not panicking yet (I'm gap yearing!). I've just found out I have a university interview the week after next so making the dotees will be nice breathers in between doing a ton of extra reading etc. to prepare.

I'm super impressed by everyone sending out already  I haven't even started. I'm visiting family next week though, so I'm hoping to bag up the things I need for everyones dotees so I can get working on them on the train and such!

Hiya guys - sorry for not getting in touch on the thread earlier - I've had a busy week and been away from home. I've got a swap with send outs on saturday and then I'll be working away on this. Very excited though and I've already got a few ideas swimming around. I'm thinking of possibly experimenting and making my dotees out of non-fabric material....

I've just joined up Cheesy I'm really glad to be doing this swap again - they are a lot of fun to make and always lovely to look at. It is amazing how creative people get! I actually keep my dotees on my clothes hangers - not necessarily the safest place for them but they always give me a smile when I stumble on them when looking for something.

Thanks for all the job congratulations people Smiley Also, I hope everyones got through the storm safe and sound.

I've finally managed to update my shop a little bit - I'm now offering customised crochet fingerless gloves for 1 point Smiley I've got a whole range of (mainly acrylic) yarn at home and can do most crochet stuff so please just send me a pic or pattern if thats something you would like.

I've also got some clay ornaments on the go, which I should be able to put up sometime tonight/tomorow. I'm thinking of offering both unpainted and painted ones.

Is anyone interested in card making supplies? I've got quite a bit of stuff but make very few cards nowadays.

Also, I'm still really struggling to get decent photographs. I think that is half my cameras fault but even so...if anyone can point me in the direction of some good tutorials/have some tips that would be really lovely Smiley

Hi all Smiley

Just made the plunge and have opened my first ever STS shop. Very excited about taking part. Its actually not going to be open very long this week - I'm going off to Edinburgh tomorrow morning for a job interview (lovely 5 hour train journey!) and then going to visit a friend who lives near by, so won't be back home until Sunday. Hopefully when I get back I can work away on my photos (apologies for the incredibly crappy ones at the moment, but I just needed to get my shop up and running between packing!) and add a lot more stock. Anyway, as its my first time if anyones got any advice, especially on prices please let me know Smiley
