1  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: ONGOING ATC SWAP--OCTOBER 2011 - Swapping is Open! on: October 02, 2011 04:50:46 PM
I claim Mountains and Clouds for volcanoes (although, if the idea in my head doesn't work out, I might switch to "Artist's Choice."  Is that allowed?)

1/0/0


Hi!  My name is Michelle and I am a teacher, wife and mother of a 4-year old (going on 30 year old) in Las Vegas, NV.  I am from (and my heart still lives in) San Diego.  I love pink and glitter and all things girly, but dont own a dress and love tennis shoes and flip flops.  I guess Im a walking contradiction!  Im also foul-mouthed and minded (unless Im at school) so Im pretty hard to offend!  Ill love anything except religion, politics and hurt animals (do people really do that?!?!) 

My themes are:
Collages
Pirates
Pirate ABC's (I have B, E, G, K, and T)
My name Mrs. Smith on education themed background for my classroom (I have M, s, ., S and t)
Care Bears, especially Grumpy Bear
Too much fun with the label maker
Cars the Movie (for my 4-year old)
Taurus (the astrological sign)
Cinco de Mayo (my birthday!)
"You ran out of gas, where??"
A walking contradiction (like me!)
Photography
Cupcakes
Dr. Pepper
The color PINK!
Las Vegas (where I live now)
San Diego (my home)
Dirty/Shocking
Glitter
Houston Texans (NFL team)
Teachers
Healthcare Reform - JUST KIDDING!!

Thanks for choosing me!!  Smiley

I got my last 2 (actually 3) ATCs in the mail today.  Sad  I'm sad that it's over!  Let's do it again!!!  Who's in???

Anyway, here is my capital M from WideEyedLife.  She drew the ENTIRE thing, even the adorable cartoon girl!  The girl and the "M" are both raised onto cardboard, maybe?  It's so awesome.  I love it and it's an excellent first letter for my name!!


Then, I got the lowercase "s" and the "." on it's own card!  I love it!!  They are both raised and the period is tri-colored...  I don't know what it's made of, so let me know if you figure it out!  It's amazing!


Thanks, lovlies, and I would love to swap with any of you any time!!!  This was an awesome swap and I can't wait for the next round - Hint, hint!

5  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Ongoing ATC swap discussion thread--3.0 on: September 24, 2011 03:07:10 PM
I sent in my questionnaire on the 21st and am anxiously waiting to be accepted so I can play with you guys!  (Does anyone want to do a personal swap in the meantime??)  I am so sad with no ATCs to make!!  I got so used to ALWAYS crafting during the Work Your Theme Swap that I am sooooo bored right now!!!  And, my mailbox is lonely!  Smiley

Oh, yes.... Mintdawn, although I would LOVE to claim those beautiful eye cards you got, they did not come from me...  Sad  I hope that you find the real artist, because they are really cool!

Yay, yay, yay!!  I have been checking my mailbox daily, and lately it has been woefully bare.... BUT, today I got TWO!!  And, I absolutely love them both!!  I got the "K" for my Pirate ABC's from gozer in a personal swap and the "T" from Brackish Potato.  OMG, let me just say that they are both amazing!  I have 5 of my 26 letters now and it's starting to look like a set!  (Please note:  I left my good camera at school, so I had to take these pictures with my phone, because I just couldn't wait until tomorrow!)

Here is my "K."  Let me just tell you, I sent gozer a hand-drawn one, too, and I am really wishing I could take it back.  I am so impressed and intimidated by the amazing detail on this card! 



I totally <3 my Treasure Map from Brackish Potato!  She even distressed the edges to give it that worn, Pirate-Map look!!!  I think it's awesome!!



Thanks, girls!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now, I'm lame and don't know how to go back and add pictures to my previous posts, so when I get all of my cards, I will put up a new post with my whole set!  But, I only have ONE letter in my name....  Sad  IDK what happened to the rest....

I <3 you, Brackish Potato!!!  September 19th IS International Talk Like A Pirate Day and I am soooo stoked you brought it up!  Every year, I make eye patches with my students and they call me Captain all day.  It's awesome!  I've been out of the classroom so far this year (because of my back surgery,) but I am going back on Monday...  What a perfect day to introduce myself to my students!  With eye patches and a whole lot of "matey's!!" 

I love my pirate ABCs that I've gotten so far and I am really excited for the ones I have coming!  If anyone wants to make one and do a personal swap, I'm in!  I need to complete my collection and I have a loooooooong way to go!

Lastly, I am so happy that I found this site!  I have been having so much fun and all of the people that I've "met" on here are awesome!  You guys are so nice and funny and talented and creative.  It's amazing!  Thanks for letting me be a part of the group!!  Smiley

-i can`t belive someone wouldn`t send a Thank You for her giver  Huh


I know, right??  I couldn't believe it either!  That's why I wanted to be Jessica's angel...  How do you accept things, and then not even give a Thank You??

Thank you, jmiller! That card caused me so much anxiety!!  Smiley  I guess my note to not put the envelope through the machine went ignored...  It looks like the top is crushed and the center has a crease down it.  Sad 

Anyway, I received from Jillybeans today, and I got an envelope of goodies, TOO!  I am sooooo happy and excited to play with my stuff!  I got some super fun paper to play with, some pages from the infamous Sherlock Holmes book and my WONDERFUL "E is for Eye patch" ATC!  It's the top quarter of a pirate's face and I LOVE it!!  My pirate ABC's are starting out amazingly!!  Thank you to everyone who has made me one!!





Thanks, Jillybeans!!!!!!!
