1  Re: Christmas Stocking Swap Rd. 10 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by mandykaye on: December 04, 2014 10:16:32 PM
I received my package from Averia earlier today! Well its actually for my hubby, we decided to make a package for each others husbands! Boy oh boy did he get spoiled!

The stocking (which is reversable) and some candy! I've never seen a snickers bar that HUGE! It says slice and share on it! ANd a fleece Lions scarf that her hubby thought mine wouldn't like but I think that he will!

The reverse fabric of the stocking!

And all his little packages under our little tree waiting for Christmas Eve for him to open Wink

I will update with pictures after they are opened!!

UPDATE!!! Finally open and he loves it all!

She went beyond overboard! She made a Lions waste basket, a Lions zippered pouch, two fleece and rice hand warmers, an amazing eagle hoop!, a really cool survival tin kit, two key chains, and sent some Lions duct tape, a robotic bug, a flashlight/glow stick, little hand wipes, and a zombie stress "ball"!

Closer view of the sewn items!

And a hat to match the scarf! Hubby likes them!

THANKS SO MUCH AVERIA!!! You have been a fantasic partner!!!

3  Autumn Leaves mobile in Completed Projects by mandykaye on: September 17, 2014 10:15:44 PM
I made this for my partner for the WWP Mabon 2014 swap! Our theme was one hanging item and so I scoured Pinterest for some inspiration. I saw a few different mobiles using drift wood or some sort of "stick". I had been saving a limb that had fallen from our large maple tree, hoping to use it creatively Wink It was already without bark and interesting looking so it was perfect for this project.

To "cure" the wood of any critters or other unwanted things, I baked in the oven for a few minutes. I would have "nuked" it in my old microwave but it was a little too big for that. Nothing seemed to be in the wood so I then sealed it was a "matte" finish sealer.

After the sealant dried, I had the eye screws that I screwed into the bottom side of the wood. Then, I hot-glued some moss and wooden ladybugs to the top part. I used some twine and attached some pine cones and cinnamon sticks to the bottoms for weight. I then used some artificial leaves, small pinecones, and small pieces of cinnamon sticks. I used some thin wire to attach those to the twine.

For the finish, I used a bright heavy ribbon to hang it with! Its pretty simple yet effective! It smells very nice but not overpowering with the few little pieces of cinnamon.

Thanks for looking!

I received my package from whileitsraining today!!!

Here is my lovely package all bundled in a cute snowman box!

Inside was this pretty crocheted snowflake garland! The pictures really don't capture the lovely details sadly Sad But its really much prettier in person! The bigger snowflakes have different colored metallic threads and really sparkle in the light!

The best thing is that it fits across my window by my tree perfectly! Its as if I gave her the measurements!

Thanks so much Ani for a beautiful gift! Its perfect!! And I will use it for years to come! (In fact I just may leave it up until Ostara lol!)
