We need 1 angel for RebeccaJay for a Disney themed swap! (International Shipping)

This was a 5 pt swap (one large and either 2 smalls or a medium) of Disney themed items!

Rebecca wanted to receive items for her home in a "grown up" Disney theme and loves Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, Sleeping Beauty and a lot more!

(She does not care to receive clothing, jewelry or dolls)

If you can angel for this swap you will certainly save the day! RebeccaJay was a great swapper and has waiting so so long for a package that never came  Undecided
Please PM me if you can help!

4  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / My first ever twinchies! on: October 20, 2014 10:57:57 AM
Twinchies seem like they are all the rage on craftster right now and I just couldn't help but get in on the fun. I made some simple ones, including some cross stitch, for my first official attempt Smiley



Thanks for looking! These were fun and I'm excited to make some more. I think I'll add magnets to the backs for some fun fridge decor  Cheesy

We need 1 angel for Greys Princess for a Disney themed swap! (USA)

This was a 5 pt swap (one large and either 2 smalls or a medium) of Disney themed items! Greys Princess was happy to receive just about anything that matched her themes, but especially loved the movies Tangled, Frozen and Wreck-It-Ralph. Plenty more info on her questionnaire.

Sensitive to orange and citrus scents and doesn't wear jewelry.

If you can angel for this swap you will certainly save the day! Greys Princess was a great swapper and even sent early, and I'm so sad that this happened to her.
6  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 102 ENTRIES / Ornaments: Disney UP chairs on: September 03, 2014 04:48:24 PM
I just finished these in the Disney Round 12 Swap. My partner said she loved ornaments and love themes, and I immediately thought of Carl and Ellie's chairs from the movie. The chairs represent so much of their sweet relationship!

So I made two small chairs modeled after theirs!



(cat for scale)

I cut pieces of cardboard and used felt for padding and wrapped them in fabric similar to the movie. For those not familiar, here's the inspiration:

I had so much fun making these! I love tiny things like dollhouse accessories, so this was very similar. I can't wait to try this technique again!

8  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Felt Flower Wedding Bouquet on: August 01, 2014 07:29:39 AM
Monday will be my two year anniversary, and I've never shared the felt bouquet I made for my wedding. It's easily one of the projects I am the most proud of but I never thought to post it here until now!

To make it, I made beaded stamens with itty bitty wire and seed beads. I attached those to the stems using floral tape. Then I cut individual petals out of really good quality felt and sewed them in different types of flowers until I could arrange them into a bouquet. It was very easy, but very time consuming! I have a LOT of pictures so sorry if its too much!










My goal wasn't really to make something that looked real, so while I kindof based these off real flowers I didn't worry too much if they were a little abstract or unrealistic. I made about 60 extra flowers as well that my florist worked into the other arrangements with real flowers. We wanted a kindof crafty feel to the whole thing.

Also my photo skills are not great, so here's a photo (ok two) my photographer took that I think is much prettier! I think my favorite part are the green kinda spikey things!  Cheesy





Thanks for indulging me while I reminisce about my wedding!  Cheesy

10  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Disney Swap on: June 29, 2014 03:35:52 PM
I just got back from a week at Disney World and already miss it! I was also so inspired by the incredible detail and design on literally everything.

So, anyone interested in a Disney themed swap?

It could be a craft anything swap, or if people want we can narrow it down by medium or "theme." I'm just excited to craft something disney!

I've never organized before but I'd be happy to learn. I like a nice long crafting time (2-3 weeks, even 4 if preferred) for an easy low pressure swap.

So, who is with me?!
