Bailey received a package from Abby today.



The package included a decorated pillow case, foam rainbow thermometer magnet and a foam sun, a two-sided doorhanging- one side has penguins and the other had kitties, a penguin book, a penguin photo, a tiny rubber ducky, a little pillow for Fluffy's bed, a bunny postcard, a pink grow a bug, and a perler bead grid with a pattern.

Unfortunately, the painted plaster creation shattered, but I bet it was adorable.

Here is a picture of the pillow case. I would love to know more about how it was made.



Thank you again mom2em and Abby!

I received a bunch of goodies today.

SonjaBoo sent me this pendant based on my rock, paper, scissor pinned pendant. I love it!!!


That extra sparkle is a really nice touch. The paper in the background in a dictionary page entry for paper. There is a tiny paper clip below the scissors.

Thimbles71 sent me three lovely pendants, two bright colored nature themed felted pendants and an abstract wire wrapped pendant.

I love being able to touch the felted designs. My students are going to love it.

And Laurel (rscowtown) sent me a bottle cap pendant with a tree inside and a tree charm below the bottle cap.

The beads are embedded in the cap.

By the way, look at this wonderful gallery. So many beautiful things. So many ideas to try out. I love the bottles. Whatthepuck, that washer is awesome! I love how some include fabric or embroidery, so unexpected and beautiful. I need to give that a try.

I just received this very beautiful pendant from onecrazymom.



She did a wonderful job with the wirework. I love the little laugh charm too. Yellow is my favorite color.

Here are the TWO AMAZING pendants I received from Onyxnox.

First, they were packaged beautifully.


A close up of the Alice in Wonderland etched copper book that I pinned on pinterest! She definitely knew it was exactly what I wanted. I absolutely love it.


With so much detail, I wanted to showcase it all. Here is the back.


And the inside!!!!


And, here is the second one, a nature disc attached to a leather leaf since I love nature themes. It is the perfect color for my clothes.

Received from whenindoubtsew this week! I've been having some computer uploading problems so I didn't get to post as quickly as I wanted.

whenindoubtsew, sent me some amazing goodies based on Little Mermaid, Little Matchgirl, and Little Red Riding Hood!

First, here is the Little Matchgirl Poppet. I've always wanted a poppet. There is ash on the sides of her face and her eyes are down and look sad. Love her cute little boots!



Then, here is the cutest cross the body Embroidered Red Riding Hood purse, perfect for a book or notepad. I took it to my night class yesterday. It sits perfectly at my hip. I love the multiple pockets.



And here is the beautiful Mermaid Hoopla. I literally gasped when I saw it. The tops of the waves are made of lace with jump loop bubbles. Her gills are stitched using blue glitter metallic thread. She is absolutely stunning.



Here is a photo of it all including the yummy candy from Australia! Fortunately, I was home to get the mail so the chocolate did not have to sit in the heat. I totally love everything. Thank you so much whenindoubtsew!

Jumped rope...


I finished this tiny little cross stitch design from the World of Cross Stitch magazine. After I finished stitching on the 14 count aida, I used a staple gun to wrap it around a 3x3 canvas square. Now, I finally know what to do with all the tiny things I want to stitch!

20  kids craft swap in New Swap Theme Ideas by Helena Puck on: May 11, 2014 09:11:19 AM


For the past two summers, I've been organizing a summer kids' craft swap where the children are grouped with other children around their age to make things for each other. It is a 5 point swap. One large or medium is made with the assistance of an adult.

My kids look forward to it each year. Since there were so many snow days, my kids won't be out of school until the first week of June. What dates are others interested in? I'm thinking we need about a month of crafting time.

Here was last year's Kids Craft Swap: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=423853.0#axzz2WijJusXY

This is a really fun swap and gives me the opportunity to introduce my boys to new crafts. It is really neat to see what the kids come up with for each other.

It was funny; the other day, my boys were in the bedroom playing with their pom pom ball angry bird set and i-spy container that their partners made, my youngest still talks about the friends he's made, and the teachers have gotten really familiar with my oldest's favorite shirt, a handpainted Fluffy, made by another partner.

Let me know if there is an interest and what dates are available for you. Also, I may need a co-organizer since I'm taking some courses this summer.
