Glad you like it, Leigh-Ann ... I apologize, the battery for it is sitting right here on my table!  It didn't make in the box Smiley

Levi made a battery tester in his homeschool science class, so he had a whole big bag of batteries he found to test - so I had him locate a working one for me to stick in the clock!  Smiley 

Zcrafter -  He is still carrying around the snake!  Its been going in the car with us too, and tonight he got out of bed to collect it from the living room.   Its name is rattles because he thinks its a rattle snake.   It also apparently works as a jump rope.

I got my package from phnxreign99.

I got a wall clock, which is in nice bright colors, perfect for my sewing room (it seems to work fine so far!)
A really cute zipper bag with a little strawberry on it - very useful too
And an assortment of fun kit fabric, which I'm sure I will find a use for

Hooray! I'm so glad Levi is enjoying it. I had fun using all those bright colors.

He was so amazed when we opened the box, it was funny to watch him!    The bright colors suit him, he is pretty much always dressed in crazy colored mommy-made outfits like what he is wearing in the pic, so having a colorful snake wrapped around his neck totally suits him Smiley

I got a crochet snake from zcrafter!   
Levi is very pleased!  Its nice and soft and great colors -  He carried it around all day today.   

Thank you! Smiley

Doing some sewing tonight! 

I also see that someone likes Hello Kitty, and I have some spare hk fabric from an outfit I made, so I'll probably make another claim soon!

Reminder - if you haven't voted for the challenge yet, its up!   My gingerbread house is the waldorf treehouse... Smiley

Made a claim today - I had to finish a huge sewing project first, a super custom kids outfit.  And then it didn't fit the kid because 1. mom measured totally wrong, and 2. the kid grew a ton!   He is 2 and the outfit fits my 6.5yr old but is too small for the 2yr old.  Too bad my kid doesn't like Thomas the Train... and now I get to remake the whole thing.    Cry

Ah well, I'm taking a break and doing some birthday sewing instead! 
28  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: January Birthday Swap 2014 - (Sign up 01/01/2014 - 01/31/2014) on: January 09, 2014 10:10:05 AM

My name is Leigh-Ann and I turned 28 on the 3rd!  I have a 6.5yr old son, I'm a single mom, and live in Florida.  

I like bright, fun colors (i.e. rainbow colors), I'm allergic to smoke, I'm vegetarian (so no leather, feathers etc).  I wear a size xs, 0-2 but I can provide measurements if you need them.  For shirts, I prefer tank tops, or fitted style shirts, short sleeve please!

Crafted things:

Camera strap with pockets: http://gotosew.com/2013/12/featured-cammy-pack-tutorial/

knit Yoga Socks Pattern here:  http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/yoga-socks  

Fingerless gloves for Levi he has really small hands, they are impossible to find for his size - I can send measurments.   He'd love purple, rainbow, or neon. 

Clothes (link is to my pintrest board, I have knit/crochet tops/dresses, skirts, stenciled shirts, dresses - all kinds of stuff): http://www.pinterest.com/leighi123/clothes-for-me/

set of 4-6 coasters:  
Or anything else fun, unique, colorful and functional.  We have an old chest as a coffee table and I need it protected!

Spinning thing to hang on the wall (made from old lazy susan)

Natural lip balm,
preferably "made from scratch"

orange bracelet
: bracelet that is orange or mostly, durable and comfortable for every day wear, and waterproof!

Wall clock for the sewing room - with actual numbers on it and one that works!  

Button lamp shade , for smallish lamp: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/45950858667730476/

Something for my 6yr old Levi (see pintrest for lots of ideas) - its just as much fun for me for him to get stuff!

Anything else on or inspired by my pintrest:


FABRIC!!!  I love fabric.  I really need ribbing (for neckbands, cuffs) right now in a variety of colors.  Also need knits in solid colors or fun, bright gender neutral prints (I'd really like one with big stars on it, but anything will do!).  Wovens like kona or similar or bottomweights in solid colors.   Also semi-solids (small amounts fine for this, mostly for appliques)

glitter/metallic fabric sheets from Hobby Lobby, found near the felt (Hobby Lobby is far from me!)

Embroidery stabilizer, cut away or tear away.

lavender essential oil (even part used is fine)

Sewing patterns for nice kids clothes: Farbenmix, Oliver and S, Ottobre and similar

Sew in tags for the kids clothes I make

fun cookie cutters

curved scissors (for cutting appliques, threads etc).

red gutterman or similar thread (regular sewing thread)

orange machine embroidery thread (true orange, for Brother machine)

the stretchy cord used with cord stops, and more cord stops

any other "fun" colored rainbow loom bands (tye dye, metallic, neon, and glitter and whatnot)

zippers, any size/color/style

1/4" elastic (black or white)

More supplies:



- organic candy/treats (nothing with gelatin in it please, like most gummys)
- easy chapter books for Levi
- magnets, the kind to play with/do science stuff with, not the kind that go on the fridge.

So cool, this has inspired me to keep soldiering on with mine (it is travelling with me as I visit various relatives round the country).

I think I've worked out most of the materials but am curious about what you used for your fire rocks, the 'tree trunks' and is the 'paint' just food colouring? I just can't decide which bit is my favourite, maybe the sugar greenhouse - I would have totally burnt myself if I'd tried that.

PS. your kid is adorable.

Rocks are the same edible clay dyed greyish with food color and cocoa.  Trunks are gingerbread "logs ", I kept rotating them as they cooked. I then added water to gingerbread dough to make a paste and painted the logs, then baked a bit more. It gives the cracked look. I sawed off the ends to make them level before gluing together.
Paint is food color or cocoa . I added some water.
