1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Bohemian backyard wedding on: June 14, 2016 01:59:17 PM
My husband and I decided to host our second wedding in our lush backyard. I love vintage and refurbished items. I also love bold colors and a mix of blooms. I found an old four-poster head board at a thrift store for $5, painted it and added flowers, foliage and origami hearts to use as a ceremony backdrop.

I had those two old chippy doors in my house as decor. I dragged them out along the fence and added fresh flowers. The ladder was actually my husband's grandfather, who was a house painter. I had the bike (yes I actually ride that!) and the basket.

We did a lot of with origami hearts, tulle and backyard flowers. Instead of a conventional wedding cake, I bought a sheet cake with a wildflower design and made a bride and groom doll to sit beside it.

This wedding was a lot of fun to plan! Affordable, fun with a lot of crafty flair. Thank you for looking!

Details of swap:

IS it Spring yet?

Lets celebrate the change of seasons with a frivolous little bunny swap.
This is a easy-peasy 2-point swap.  Craft a bunny or a bunny- themed item and send. It can be a stuffie, needlework or other form of art. Just make and send something youd be proud to keep and display yourself.

And now a little poem for inspiration:

The fluffy little rabbits so soft and white,
Went looking for some carrots in the dark, dark night.
The fluffy little rabbits found a garden so big,
 So they jumped into the garden and began to dig.
They ate the crunchy carrots so orange and bright,
 Till they heard some footsteps coming and they froze in fright.
 Then the fluffy little rabbits heard the farmer say,
Scat, little rabbits, and they all hopped away!

Swap size guidelines:
This swap will be  2 points one bunny  or bunny-themed item.
 

Delivery Confirmation is required within the U.S., please send tracking number to both your partner and organizer when you send. Please keep your mailing receipt if you are sending internationally.
PM both your partner and me when you send and receive.

4  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Flea Market Flip swap on: February 17, 2016 04:33:24 PM
I am completely addicted to thrift stores and garage sales. I also love the show Flea Market Flip.

Was toying with the idea of a 3 point swap where swappers reinvent a secondhard item--repaint, refinish, re-envision an item. Of course we'd have to swap smaller items. Swappers would need to take a before and after photo.

Any interest?

Details of swap:
Remember these little darlings? A Black Apple doll is a simple, but fun ragdoll pattern shared by ETSY superstar Emily Martin. (pattern is attached to the link below in a PDF)
http://www.marthastewart.com/264299/black-apple-doll

I have used the pattern to make all kinds of fun little dolls - elves, fairies, angels, witches, Little Red Riding Hood. I've added yarn hair, capes, hats etc.
This is an easy-peasy, fun, use-what-you've-got, knock-it-out-in-one-night Black Apple doll swap. I believe this would be round two. I think someone hosted one in 2008!

This is a 2 point swap. Make a great doll brimming with creativity and send it. Thats it!

Some examples:
