1  Re: 2015 Holiday Tags and Cards Swap GALLERY - send outs 11/04 in The Swap Gallery by quaggy on: November 12, 2015 05:38:04 PM
My cards from both partners arrived today!!!  I was super spoiled and love them all!

These came to me from bec99

I love the added snowflake charms, buttons, vintage style, 3 d effect and textured papers.....the school bus is my favorite from this set, although I love them all!

Next up are the ones that artsycandice sent to me

I love the way these were made and now have new ideas for some of my fabric scraps...I think the wreath is my favorite from this set but they are all so cute.  I need to take a picture of the  To From side of the sewn tags  They look like the perfect puzzle pieces and where the string tie was sewn on it looks like a snowflake...awesome job.  Will try to get a photo up this weekend.

These are the envelopes for the ones that bec99 sent.

I use to go all out in years past and put a tree in every room (7 total)each had a theme but as I have gotten older and my son is out on his own its just one artificial tree in the living room.

Here is last years been doing this one for several years.  It usually goes up the weekend after Thanksgiving.

I have been working on another swap but have completed 1 crafted item for this one.  I was also at Hobby Lobby and picked up a ________ _________since they were 50% off and I needed one for something else I wanted to make.  I know what I am going to do for my stocking and hope to get started on everything next weekend.  Since I am off the week of Thanksgiving and have no real plans, I  will be making more progress.

Here is a photo of the two products I used.  The snow Tex can be applied with a pallet knife or brush it also comes in one with sparkles already in it.  It is like thick icing.  After applied and dry usually overnight i them paint the sparkle glaze over it and let it dry.  It can be used on wood, ceramics, paper fabric you name it!  The pins are made using a corsage pin stuck through a small ribbon bow.  Then add assorted beads and crystals.  Add e-6000 with a tooth pick between the bottom two beads and stick in Styrofoam to dry.  The pins are like an extra gift and can be removed.  Then made into something else or worn if not to many beads are added, or just dress up a pin cushion. Don't forget to use your 40% off coupon.

It's been awhile since I swapped. This looks to be just the right size. I'd rather make 3-5 small, cute things than struggle with a bigger item right now. Smiley

Love the bunting and the doll is fantastic.  Proud owner of some things you sent in in prior swaps that we were partnered in

My new little sewing obsession of late is bunting! This is my daughter's room, which is ground zero for all my craft projects. Poor kid!
And of course rag dolls Still love those!

Finally found a slow moment to post my blocks.   The fabric at the bottom will become the backing and the binding, not sure how what I will strip it yet.

I also want to say that you, as a group, have the least amount of allergies I've ever had in a swap. Smiley That makes it so much easier and more fun matching you up since I can pay more attention to matching the fun things instead of trying to find the one person without cats to match up with the person with wicked cat allergies.

Which is very good because I can guarantee THIS fluffy "helper" will very likely donate strand of her fur or two to my package! (Whether I want her to or not!)

Oh I love your cat what is its name?Huh??   But the pendant is gorgeous....a Halloween moon
