1  Re: Box of Sunshine Swap (SIGNUP 2017 Jan 27-Feb 4 ; MAIL BY Feb 17 2017). Gallery in The Swap Gallery by quaggy on: February 17, 2017 03:11:31 PM
My turn to show off an awesome package of spoilage from LadyBugsandBummbleBees!!!!   I was so excited to open this box as we have swapped before and I knew I was in for a fantastic sunny pick me up!

1st up everything came all wrapped up and was bursting with sunshine, it is a deary rainy day so it had a perfect arrival!



I am going to post the photo and then comment because there are so many!


A bookmark made from jelli printing!  Reading is a pastime for me and one never has enough bookmarks!


handmade cards with matching envelopes!  Looks like I gotta sign up for more swaps and send some artwork out to a few peeps!


A close up of a few!


LBBB knows I do not crochet and picked these straight off my pinterest.....for now I am going to tuck them away but have plans to put them on a painted canvas or some dish towels.  She sent me a whole bouquet!


Peace frog holographic cup!!!!  Win Win on this one!


More amazing crocheted items:  a soap saver wash bag, potholder bar of Lavender soap (my whole box is smelling good) and some crafting tape!  Love this stuff!


This made me smile so big!  I have a love for pocket letters and this one has so much to look at.  LBBB used her printing skills again to make the backgrounds.  I must say I am super impressed I have tried this but have yet to really like any I have made as well as these.   next she embellished them with stickers using some of my favorite things:
frogs, butterfly's, dragonflies and other cute little critters!  She then wrote the verse: Oh Mr, Sun, Sun, Mr. Golden Sun, Please shine down on me!    When I flipped it over she had numbered all of her atc's , dated, titled , signed and even wrote the swap.....these alone tired me out!  Just look at all the goodies she included!




and a few close ups!




a cute stand up owl.....another of my favorite critters!


mega package of appliques fun for use on all kinds of craft items




Not 1 not 2 but 3 mini cross stitch kits.....I love to make these and add them to pocket letters


an embellished, painted wooden box that had extras wrapped inside!





The flowers inside the box are painted and have buttons for accents!  and just look at my supplies!  The wooden flat pieces are painted wood with magnets on the back!


a package of tissues....maybe now I will get around to making me a tissue holder!


a bag full of buttons......LBBB knows how I love my buttons!


a super cute mobile.....the top is painted....with a butterfly attached and ribbon connects the crochet flowers that have fabric yo-yo centers....this is so cute and creative!



I was super spoiled and I love everything!!!!  Looks like I need to vamp up the next package I send her way........wow what a great way to end a crappy week!

THANK YOU LADYBUG!!!!!

The gallery is starting to explode and kayrun you are so deserving.....I just knew when I found one of my tm patches on your pinterest i had a plan but I could not figure it out for the letter G  then I remembered the mug I had bought about a year ago waiting to swap with you again and it worked in perfectly!  During Thanksgiving break I was painting the same Santa for a coworker but as a black Santa and just knew my last one needed to go to you as Kris Kringle for all of the amazing swaps that you host!  He was a 15 year old piece of bisque I had saved from when I had a kiln.  My too relaxing crafts are stained ceramics and sewing!



Here is a close up of the patches.........I knew bees hold a special place because of your dad as do frogs for me for the same reason....Dear Dads!

My package arrived from snowyangel today and I love everything!

1st up is everything as it arrived!


My initials are R L M

R is for Retro Christmas ornaments......these are so fun and I love retro....as a kid I loved ribbon candy so this one has to be my favorite.   Love the bell accent.  The stocking ring is so sparkly....is this made on a canning jar lid?  and the oblong one reminds me of those vintage glass bulbs!







L is for Leopard frog keychain and a art canvas: Live Love Lake!  I have a love of frogs and this is going with me to Vegas on Sunday as a new lucky charm!  I hope it works.....and the art canvas is perfect....it is going into my camper....I think if I had to pick a favorite this is it!  But of course that may change if my little frog brings me luck!





and the back is even decorated



M is for mushroom

A super cute mushroom mug rug in my favorite colors aqua and red.  This is actually going to hang on my kitchen furdown instead of being used as a mug rug it is just too cute I want to display it!  snowyangel shared that she is a beginner at using a blanket stitch and it looks perfect to me.  She also used buttons, a love of mine for the stem!



as extras I got some owl stickers from her daughter and a fantastic sticker that fits me to a tee!





Thank you so much snowyangel this was the perfect package for my favorite swap!  It was so well thought out and you really did your homework....you were the perfect partner!

10  It's Fall Ya'll in Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects by quaggy on: November 07, 2016 06:20:11 AM
Years back I had a kiln and before selling it put some stuff into bisque.  Now these things have been sitting for about 12 years just waiting to be painted.   I always made things in sets of 2 or 3....I for my mom, my sister and me.  Knowing mom would enjoy this scarecrow as a table decoration and it was a piece I had always loved I got them out dusted them off ans got busy.   Here are the photos from start to finish.   They are bisque, them painted black and dry brushed with all the colors.  They even have a clip light that make the pumpkins light up.   Since Hobby Lobby had all their picks and bales 1/2 off I decided to add a little bit of fall landscaping!







Mom loved him and sorry sis, the 2nd one is for me!
