21  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: 4x6 Art Swap Fall 2016 (SU CLOSED; SO Oct 27) on: October 21, 2016 02:35:25 PM
Opps! I'm the one who had to check in! I just did! And I am all ready to send too!!!! Ekk! I think I'm going to have to make a second for my own collection!!!!!
Yes, make yourself one!  I rarely craft for myself, so when I'm doing a swap and decide to make my partner something that I'd like as well, I try to make two, one for them and one for me Cheesy.  For some reason it's easier to make myself stuff when I'm making something for someone else as well!

We still have several people who need to check in via pm. Please check the first page to see if I have your name in bold print. I want everyone to stay in the swap!

I sent a check in message on the 18th, but my name is not in bold, so I sent you another message.  I have my art ready to send  Cheesy.

All of my stuff looks good.  I'm super excited about the ornaments I'm set to receive Cheesy.

I was unable to get additional supplies to offer a second flatter ornament, so I'll only be offering 3 ornaments. I will be doing as KBrison suggested and offering both the nativity and the let it snow ornament under the title 'glass disk ornaments.' If you'd like one, just specify which of the two you would prefer.

Sorry Summer, I forgot to take a photo of the wax seal. I was too excited to see your PL. Yes the wax seal made it one piece. Thanks again!
Yay! I'm so glad to hear that! If it can make it all the way to Australia in one piece, it should be able to make it anywhere! I think I'll start employing wax seals as a way of dressing up my mail Smiley.

Summer, I'd be happy with either design. You could still offer both by just changing the wording to something like 'glass ball ornament', then personalize the interior design to suit the preferences of the lucky three people who will receive your ornaments.

I agree with kbrison, either ornament would be lovely. However, I am more partial to the Let it Snow.

Thank you for your responses!  I was just now thinking how I would like to do six ornaments when the obvious answer hit me...why not do 3 glass and 3 flat/paper/no need to ship in a box?  So, I'm going to hurry up and work on a sample to see if that will work out!

Lindy and kbrison, I'm sorry to hear that your ornament attempts didn't work out as planned.  I hope your second tries prove to be much more fruitful, I can't wait to see what you both come up with!  Lindy, I'm secretly hoping you have good luck with the bulbs or the reindeer Cheesy.  

I love the adipose baby and those glampervans are such a unique idea!  There are so many good ornaments to choose from!

I'm glad to see willingness to partner with our international swappers!
(it helps me so much when I get ready to match partners!!)

I agree that it's great fun to receive things from other lands (as well as to
imagine them enjoying things from my country) --
the older I get, the more I enjoy travel & experiencing other cultures (either in person
or through swapping!) 

I was so grateful to visit Brazil last month with my family -- my older daughter swam
in the Paralympic Games!  (oops that's probably going off too far on a tangent  Tongue

She swam in the Paralympic Games?? What an amazing accomplishment! I'd want to drop that little piece of news into all my conversations regardless of if it was related or too far off tangent Smiley.

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.
