I received the  most amazing package from abbeeroad!  When I signed up for this swap, I had the sudden desire for a metal stamped bracelet. I'm not sure why exactly, as I've never really wanted one before. I wasn't in a million years thinking I would get one...but, I did!

Check it out in my action shot:

It says "What happens is best for this moment"

And not only that, she and I both love mountains, and she sent me a mountain fabric cuff:

Thanks so much! I very much enjoyed swapping with you!

Although I sent to jesskelly at least a week before she sent to me,  it appears I received first. She sent my winter wonderland and crafting with yarn themes. I really love the embossed and the yarn ones.

I'll go on a regular computer later and rotate them.

Thank you!

Bradley832 received from me  a week or so ago, and hasn't had the chance to post them, so I'm going to go ahead and share.   Since I've had a lot of fun with the perler bead inchies (**spoiler alert for jesskelly**) so all my partners are receiving some version of the perler beads.  I started out with just one perler bead inchie each  (FYI, it's a group of 5x5 beads to make an inch) but once I saw many of you doing groups to make a bigger picture, which I was trying to stay away from, I decided to make groups, which is why my partners all got so many more than just 10!

Here are all the inchies for him. I added some from his bees theme an his clocks theme (my favorite). I really like the Big Ben one I did. I don't think I took a closer up picture than this one for the lot of them.


Assembled they make the Harry Potter Hogwarts crest! Fun, huh?

I received yesterday from both Bradley832 and NH822.  They both chose my "cute monsters" and "Big Bang Theory" themes, as well as my "Winter Wonderland" theme.

Here they are:

First, from NH822:

My favorites are the hand-drawn Sheldon (so cute) and the Soft Kitty one.

And, from Bradley832:

I really like the snowflake ones. Those blues are my favorite colors for winter-time.

Thanks for crafting for me!

75  "Even the penguin warms up by the fire!" in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by BigBangMomma on: February 06, 2014 04:42:51 PM
I'm still fairly new with polymer clay, but I knew I wanted to play with it for my partner in the one tiny surprise thing swap. I forget exactly how much this measures, but it's smaller than the required 4" sq or less for the swap.

Thanks for looking!

I received today from both my partners--KittyHerman and kwality570!  Both pieces are so amazingly beautiful! I can't wait to frame them and hang them up!!

I have two partners because KittyHerman's check in got lost in my inbox  (two swaps with check in/send out days back to back) and so I thought I had to drop her from the swap. Then, I posted partners, and she reminded me that she did in fact check in. I felt awful! She we agreed that since luckily I had a second piece already made, and it was entirely my error, I'd add her back to the swap, and we'd send to each other.  The two pieces I had made are completely different from one another, so when she receives, I hope she likes it.

So, Kitty Herman's piece is the panda on top, and she's called it "Don't Worry, Be Happy."  I love love love him!!

I've been ogling kwality570s monsters every chance I get, and we've yet to be partnered together. So, I knew I had to take the chance while I had it to receive one of her adorable monsters. I love it. So pretty!!

Thank you so much ladies!

I received today from Plastic Platypus!  She sent me my very own lucky Dragon Ball which represents success, growth, and the universe. She said they embody a powerful mystical force manifested on a physical plane.  Inside are token which represent material abundance, protection, love, and a key to unlock whatever keeps me from growth and abundance.   I had never heard of these before, so it was so great that PP included such a wonderful detailed note.

Now for the picture:

Thank you so much!!

Chameleon Hound chose my vacation/travel theme, and she took off with it! All 10 of my inchies were a wonderful New England trip including a covered bridge and food covered with maple syrup.  My favorites are the bridge and the book ones.Thank you so much!

79  Queen Sized Striped Blanket in Crochet: Completed Projects by BigBangMomma on: January 16, 2014 05:52:00 AM

I posted towards the end of last year a blanket I made with the same design and similar colors. That one was a Christmas gift. My husband and I loved it so much that we decided I must make another one.

So, we changed to brown from gray, and kept the other colors the same.  We went from Super Bulky to Lion's Brand Jiffy Bulky yarn. I used about 20 skeins! It measures about 100"x100". For reference, a quick search on Google shows that a queen blanket measures 90"x90".  I was getting pretty quick (when I didn't have to pull out a row or two for not finishing my "v" stitch) that I was getting about 7 rows completed in about 2 hours, or about a row every 20-30 min or so.

So....it repeats 7 rows blue, 3 rows white, 4 rows brown, 3 rows white, 7 rows blue....... all "v" stitch.

I'm going to apologize in advance for the lighting. When I use flash in my room, it distorts the color. When I turn the flash off, then the pictures are dark. I really need to learn the setting on my dslr to help combat that.


Thanks so much for looking!

80  The Northern Lights in perler beads in Completed Projects by BigBangMomma on: January 12, 2014 12:33:43 PM
I've recently been playing with perler beads with my 8 year old daughter, and I've been wanting to make something that was Northern Lights. So...I thought, why not perler bead Northern Lights and  winter cabin?  This is my first attempt at free-handing and I've only made possibly a handful of these before. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

Take  a look. Thanks!

This is actually the back side. I'm still getting the hang of fusing them together, and I like how this side turned out better.
