2  Christmas Stocking Swap Round 12 (signups thru Oct. 24; sendout Dec.6) in ACTIVE SWAPS WHERE SIGN-UP PERIOD HAS CLOSED by Summer6061 on: November 23, 2016 12:46:21 AM
My favorite handmade gift is a gift that I helped with.
My sister was pregnant with her third baby and super excited that it was a girl. The crib she had was a hand-me-down that someone had given her and had already been used by her two boys.  The crib had seen better days and was nothing like what she wanted, but she planned to make do. My husband decided to make and surprise her with a crib similar (but way better in my opinion) to the one she wanted.
My husband did most of the work, from creating the design in his head, to cutting out the pieces, to painting and putting it together. I created the ruffle for the top and helped with some sanding.
When my sister finished opening gifts at her shower, I put a blindfold on her and my husband wheeled in the crib. She didn't know what to expect and when she took the blindfold off, it was like she couldn't believe her eyes. She was in shock and it took her a few moments to compose herself. I think it may have been the most 'I can't believe this, I've never been happier with a gift' reaction that I've ever seen Smiley.
Here's a pic of the crib (this was the only picture that I could find).

I also received some fun flamingo art from EdelC!  I love how she blended the colors to make it look like they're flying over rolling hills!

Happy Halloween!!

Didn't manage to get the new costumes done for Halloween, so the girls were wearing their Superhero costumes from the Edinburgh Comic Con (April 2016).

(they were out "guising" (that's the Scottish Trick or Treating where they have to tell a joke, sing a song or do a dance before they get their treat)

What cuties!! I like the idea of guising vs just saying 'trick or treat!'

Here's a pic of my 3 year old lumberjack, complete with a homemade beard Smiley.

I received today!! I really like this piece of art from Nikki (I'm not sure of her Craftster username). I'm a big fan of book page art. I like the bright colors she used and I love the text background! Thank you so much Nikki!

8  Pocket Letters Round 3 GALLERY in The Swap Gallery by Summer6061 on: October 17, 2016 10:34:02 AM
Bec, did the wax seal survive the journey to Australia? This is how it looked before I put it in the envelope, I was afraid there might've been too much wax.

I was planning on doing 6 ornaments (3 & 3), but as I was putting the finishing touches on my samples, I realized that shipping would probably add up pretty quickly.  My ornaments are glass and will have to be packaged in a box.  I'm not sure how much a small box will ship for, but I'm thinking it would probably be about $5.  Sooo, I think I will change my offerings to just three.  Now the question is, three of which?  The Nativity, or Let it Snow?  Which would you guys prefer?

EDITED: I am offering one or the other, so if you would like one of these, just specify which design you'd like Smiley.

Here's the travel themed pocket letter I received from Bec99! 
I love how the butterflies add a pop of color to each of the black and white cards!


These are my three favorites:


Even the back of the cards are fun!


And look at all these extras, so much papery goodness! 


Thank you so much Bec, this is the perfect way to start out my pocket letter collection, and I love all the extras!  Thank you for being such a great partner!
