21  Re: Box of Sunshine Gallery (SO Feb 17) in The Swap Gallery by kbrison on: February 18, 2014 08:55:16 PM
I received from Watsonc7 over the weekend, but waited until she received too so I would be free to share the humor of what we sent one another. She sent fat quarters; I sent fat quarters. She sent ribbon; I sent ribbon. She sent lemon drops and Juicy Fruit gum; I sent lemon drops and Juicy Fruit gum. By that point I was rolling on the floor laughing, but it wasn't finished there. We both sent journals, notecards, tags, and embellishments. I sent a glitter pencil and glow-in-the-dark eraser; she sent a fish pencil sharpener. She sent an accordian-style  coupon holder; I sent an accordian-style index card holder. I was beginning to think that we were reading one another's minds.

Now for the ways our packages differed. Watsonc7 sent a foldable tote bag, a thermos, lip balm, a dog's tail hook, and an extendable back scratcher.

For the crafted items she made an adorable pouch with the prettiest lining. (A pouch was one of the things I didn't find enough time to make, but had already pulled all the fabric for.) Grin

The interior of the pouch. Aren't those butterflies wonderfully cheerful?

And a set of four placemats that are going to look great with my blue dishes and glassware!

Sorry for the photo-bombing, but this was such an awesome package! Even the box rocked. There was a large sun covering the top and part of the sides on the exterior. Then the flaps and interior sides were bright yellow duct tape. Definitely a ray of sunshine before I ever saw the contents.

3 skeins of yarn destashed to make these fingerless gloves for a dialysis unit, a charity project by my crochet club. Our goal is to make at least one pair for every patient. That's currently 56 patients to keep warm. We're making good progress. More than 20 pairs done so far.

I've received from Gator and Amazing. Yippee!
First the hairbows from Amazing that are going to my great-great nieces.

Then the bookmark from Gator that's going to be a Christmas gift.

Love being able to start my Christmas gifting with such nice things.

Received the onesie from Eiseldora last week, but just getting photos uploaded today. This will be for my first great-great nephew, Elijah. If he's anything like his sister, he'll love horses so that's the design I requested for him.

Then Eiseldora really spoiled me with the pinback buttons for my daughters!

Thanks again, Eiseldora!

25  A Cup of Warmth cards in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by kbrison on: February 05, 2014 02:59:53 PM
I used an old Regency romance novel as the background for several of these cards and a stamp set and technique from a scrapbooking conference I attended. In winter I like to curl up in a recliner with a good book and a cup of hot chocolate, so I used that as the inspiration for these cards.

Marked this to receive notifications when new comments were added. For some reason today was the first time since Jan.16 that I actually was notified of new posts (just 28 pages worth!!!). Looks like everyone has really been busy, but there's no way to comment on all 28 pages.

I've been crafting for swaps but nothing I can post yet. I did make a few cards though so will share them.

My favorite is the last line on the bottom right card: "He took out his wallet and handed it to her." Definitely my kind of guy!

Claiming my spot.

Group 1



Group 3

The true colors aren't this dull looking. I think the blue background may have affected the appearance of the other colors.

We didn't see or hear a thing! Wink

Finished a crocheted hat using my yarn stash. Wish it used more yarn, less than a skein total.

These are the soaps I made in December and the two batches I made yesterday (the light lavendar on the left and the pink in the center). I'm just learning soap-making so am still doing melt & pour stuff, but am experimenting with molding, colors, fragrances, and inclusions. Hope to work from scratch as my techniques improve.
