1  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: MINI 12 Days of Christmas Swap 2013 -- Send Outs 11/27/13 on: November 27, 2013 03:33:53 PM
So............I unwrapped, snapped (pics), rewrapped, packaged and am sneaking out of the office early and headed to the post office!  So excited to ship!  Woot, woot!  Sadly, I had hoped to ship at the beginning of the month...................yeah, well...........that's kind of the way the last few weeks have gone for me!  :-)  And, I'm happy to report that I received a lovely package in the mail from the wonderful maxxev!  It's killing me to stare at it - so I put it in a closet!  I swear - post from there to here is faster than from here to there - can't believe how quickly her package got here!

Totally in awe of Averia's screen printing skills - even if she doesn't understand how important it is that a new baby be raised up properly - sporting the proper colors!    Grin  Seriously, though, texscrapper did an amazing job and it's killing me to wait until the shower to give it to them! 

So glad it arrived safely, watsonc7!  Hubby usually wraps up my glass for safe delivery, but I did this one all by my own self!  Quite proud, and surprised, that it made it all in one piece!  And I love, love, love that Riley Blake line!  Hope to see some of your goodies made from it!

Anyone else starting to feel the pressure?   Grin  Someday I'll learn when to just leave well enough alone and stop 'tweaking' each little thing to death!

I also love using fabric as wrapping paper!  All my crafty friends get their gifts from me wrapped in fat quarters.

How fun!  I admire your moxie for tackling such large pieces!  I'm especially fond of the green piece - is that a "pressed" piece?  It has such an amazing water color feel to it!

Woot, woot............way to go Onyxnox!   I had hoped to have shipped last weekend - didn't happen.  IRL things have been a bit crazy and I just realized that as much time as I spend thinking about and working on this swap, I seem to have forgotten to post in the thread lately!  So while catching up on the thread I had a major 'doh' moment several posts back - while reading someone's post I had the awfully embarrassing realization that I did not take pictures of any of the items I've already wrapped and packaged up!  Oooooops................guess who gets to open presents this weekend?  LOL

Another amazing watsonc7 package!  How much fun is that loot!?  Love those super hero masks - my twenty year old would probably still wear them!  Sew cute wall art!  :-)

I received a timely package from the talented texscrapper yesterday!  Our beloved Boston Red Sox won the World Series in six on Wednesday evening, and we were still riding high when these lovely goodies arrived Thursday afternoon:



Isn't that the most adorable onesie ever???  (Okay, so I'm a bit prejudiced!) And how cool is that burp cloth - backed with adorable baseball fabric!?

Homerun, texscrapper!  Thank you so much!

I claim watsonc7 for a fused glass table piece as discussed.  This is my 3rd claim this round.  3,0,2)

Hi, all!  Im Tracy from Idaho, USA.  Thank you in advance to whoever chooses to claim me.  My hubby and I have two college-aged boys and live with three furry family members a 17 year old Australian Shepherd, a 13 year old Sheltie, and the spoiled rotten baby-dog a sixish year old mini Aussie.  We are a non-smoking home.  We have no allergies though I might as well have a vegetable allergy.  Our boys both go to Boise State, so they are close by and often come home for weekend projects and dinners.  The oldest is currently restoring a 1980 Jeep CJ5 and the younger one races Mini Stocks at the local circle track so there are always projects to be worked on.  We own a trucking company and are huge Boston sports fans so vintage jeeps, Peterbilt trucks, Red Sox, Bruins, and the Patriots are all great unconventional theme ideas.

I am partial to neutrals and rustic dcor, though a splash of happy color is always a welcome addition to any room.  I prefer fun functional items over knick knacks.  I am an organization junkie.   I prefer fresh, clean scents like mint and citrus to soft floral scents.  Im partial to silver over gold when it comes to jewelry.  I mostly work with fused glass, though I am learning to be better friends with my sewing machine and I love to learn new things currently grabbing my attention are metal stamping and soap making.  
I also have a list going over on the Ongoing Holiday List Swap, so feel free to check that out, too!
