1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Favorite song or singer/band swap? on: October 28, 2011 10:50:46 PM
What do you thing about a one or 2 item swap based on your fave song/band/ or singer? Right now I am loving Adele and I was just thinking it could be cool to build something on a fave of something right now? Sorry if this a dupe. Thoughts?
2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / A wand made of paper on: October 16, 2011 09:03:53 AM
Yep! Paper! I found a tutorial online on how to make a wand that I was dying to try and just so happened that I was in the Return to Hogwarts swap! So here's the finished product:




I know she has received but just hasn't had a chance to post pics but I was so excited about this project I wanted to share.

Tell me what you think!
3  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / My little Seahorse on: June 05, 2011 08:56:46 AM
I made this for the most recent hoopla swap. I am proud how it came out. It was so hard to send. I am going to try to make one for myself. The seahorse I painted with watercolors. I love how it gives it dimension and makes it pop out.

This was before it was completed.

Once it was done

This I finished yesterday. I started it last year and just couldn't get motivated and then misplaced it. It's for my friends son. I was an embroider-aholic yesterday. I just couldn't stop. Tell me what you think. One's before it was finished and then the finished project.



The second one, the color isn't so hot. I took it last night around 11pm..
6  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Birthday VW bug on: April 12, 2011 12:20:21 PM
I made this for my mom yesterday. her birthday is coming up in a couple of days and as always cash is few and far between. So, I have been wanting to embroider a vw bug lately and figured it would be perfect for her since she had a blue one when we were kids. I found an image on the internet and added a little bit to it.

9  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Beatles Swap on: March 29, 2011 09:11:43 AM

Who wants to live in a yellow submarine or sail in the sky with Lucy and Diamonds, or maybe your name is Michelle?

Who would be interested in a Beatles swap? I have been thinking lately what my next swap would be and I wanted something that just made me feel good and cheerful as I was doing it. I could sing the songs in my head (our out loud if no one's around lol) while making the items. Hey, I was named after one of the songs, I was destined to love them.

So, who's with me? I am thinking sign ups starting 4/11/11 for a week or 2 and then a month for crafting. Let me know who's interested. I know a lot of you out there love 'em!

Here's some links to previous swaps:

Details of swap:
Ever wished that when you stepped out your door you were stepping into history? Do you love the Tudor period and the royalty from that time? If you enjoy watching the film, TV, or reading about them then this is the swap for you. Items can be crafted based on actual history or from the TV show that is on BBC America right now "The Tudors".

This will be a 5 point swap. Changed so that you can decide what sizes you want to make.

There has been a bit of confusion as to what is a large, medium, and small item.  So here's a handy dandy guide.  This is not totally set in stone, but is a rough estimate of sizes described by time it takes to make package, by physical size and by cost:

By Time
-3 points = 3 or more hours
-2 points = 2 or more hours
-1 point = 2 or less hours

By Size
-3 = A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
-2 = one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
-1 = Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

By Price
-3 = $30 or more
-2 = $10-$30 dollars
-1= $10 or less

Any additional spoilage is up to you and your partner!
