11  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Disney & Pixar Swap (SU Feb 26-March 6th, SO April 9th) on: March 12, 2016 06:15:14 PM
So, got my partner information, started researching and then was laid out for two days with a stomach bug.  Angry

But I've got some plans... Cheesy

13  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Christmas Stocking Swap! on: December 13, 2015 12:55:14 PM
Oh wow! what an awesome gallery!  and I get to add to the awesomeness.

Snowyangel definitely did some first class stalking for this stocking.

The beautiful upcycled (I think) Star Trek stocking. It's really soft.


I opened the mug rug upside down and it took me a minute to realize what it was, but the sewn piggy banks were immediately recognizable from my pinterest


Keeping with the Star Trek theme, Tribbles (and they were no tribble at all, except the puppy stole one)


Our Big Dog (T) and cat are represented with this ornament, which is now on our tree:


Another ornament already on the tree: Spiderman house.


And my second favorite, Catwoman & Batman pendant (also from my pinterest)


My very favorite is the catnip toy: we got a puppy a few weeks ago and the cat is having difficulty adapting. This catnip toy has calmed her down and given her something for her own in one of her safe places. She's not attacking the puppy as much and they are actually playing a little. THANK YOU for the drugs for my kitty!!  And because she did immediately take it, I don't have a close up of it, just her playing:


Purchased items included a "my children have paws" key chain, some chocolate, tea & K cups. And some great lotion, smoothing but not greasy.


Thanks for everything and I hope you enjoy your package (and I'm sorry for not getting any yummies in the stocking)

I have received (a while ago, actually) but have been waiting to post pics until I sent. Since the USPS should have delivered yesterday, I'll be posting my awesome stuff from snowyangel shortly!!

And I was definitely spoiled (so was the cat...she's very happy by the way...)

I have had one crazy weekend/week at work. I already warned that I'd be sending late...it's gotten later. But on the plus side, I'm quite pleased with the results.
I should be sending tomorrow.
I have gotten my stocking but I'm not opening until I pack up everything to send to snowyangel. (And it has been a test of will power, let me tell you!)

roler, wow those are great nails!!

I have a couple of movie traditions for Christmas time: With my family, especially my sister and niece "White Christmas" and with my husband, "Love Actually" It was the 2nd movie we saw together and it's "our movie"

I am SOOO far behind...I need to get off the computer and binge craft while the puppy is actually occupied with her teething bone.

I don't know about favorite, but the most traditional dish my family has is apricot jelled salad, also known affectionately as "Pimento Cheese Salad" because my nephew by marriage the first time he saw it asked, "What is that; Pimento Cheese?"
He's a native southern boy, not experienced with the midwestern Jello Salad traditions.

I have fallen behind on my crafting...it's been a busy couple of weeks. However, things have calmed down a bit and my goal is to finish things up (or at least get a major chunk of it done)

Too many Christmas/winter songs to even attempt a single one.
 I have to listen to the Cajun holiday compilation from ages ago. My copy is on cassette tape (the real reason we cannot get rid of our cassette players) but I'm starting to recreate it electronically.
and I'm a sucker for big band / swing versions of anything. Brian Seltzer's Christmas albums and Big Bad Voodoo Daddy's are permanently in the rotation.


I have one item completed, plans/supplies for at least two other things, as well as other stuffers.

However, I have the cutest wrench in the crafting plans. We got a puppy for my husband's birthday and we can't leave her without supervision. So my originally planned crafting time is now is now "no no, don't chew on that. Leave the cat alone. Stop eating the big dog's food" time.

I am also in the allergic to pine category, so it's been artificial trees all my life.

I think I may have mentioned that my family tradition is to put up the tree on Christmas Eve, to be taken down on Epiphany. Absolutely no theming there.

Hubby's tradition is Thanksgiving weekend, artificial (apparently growing up they had one of those silver ones with multicolored lights aimed at it) and not really a theme, just whatever his mom feels like that year.

So, OUR tradition is becoming that we aim for the weekend after Thanksgiving, generally make it by the first weekend in December.  Except for the year that our cat was a kitten in which case it was up, but not in the proper place.  We had to put it in the Forbidden Room of Mystery (aka my husband's room of art & books) because she was always ending up in the tree at eye level.

No real theme, just whatever catches our eye or has been given to us.  This gives us an eclectic assortment that includes: Captain America, Aaron Rogers, Batman (multiple) Darth Vader, traditional Dutch inspired angels, Nutcrackers, Haunted Mansion Mickey, various other Disney ornaments and small "traditional" ornaments.

And we try to not let it stay up past Epiphany.  Or at least no later than the weekend after Epiphany.

progress? HAH I keep changing my mind.  Too many good ideas.  currently working on getting everything I need for the stocking itself & I plan on starting a medium this evening.

Obviously, checking in too.  Grin
