Stella is packed up & ready to go! She's excited to leave for a while... She's scared of our parrot! Maybe she'll come back a braver octopus!

Anyone willing to partner with me early? I already have the cutest Little Visitor ready to go!  I got her in the Easy Peasy Swap 2 back in June 2009 and she's been dying to go on a LV adventure since!

See? http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=304364.msg3533363#msg3533363 Smiley

Your little visitor would get to hang out with me & my cute little guy! Cheesy (Uh oh, sideways picture! Weird, it's right side up on my phone post, but sideways on my PC post!)

Details of swap:

This swap is for all pregnant ladies, new mommas, moms of little ones, or even those who just know moms with babies!

It was snowyangel's idea, and she suggested that crafted items could be for the new mom(homemade lotions, ice packs, home baked sweets, jewelry, artwork...), items spoiling the newborn(binky holders, teethers, burp cloths, appliqued onesies...), or hand made items for a young child (teddies/toys, a blanky....).

For this swap, we will each be sending three items, at least one of which must be a "medium" size item. Please discuss with your partner what you are comfortable making/receiving so everyone is on the same page!

For size reference:

By Time
-Large = 3 or more hours
-Medium = 2 or more hours
-Small = 2 or less hours

By Size
-Large = A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
-Medium = one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
-Small = Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

By Price
-Large = $30 or more
-Medium = $10-$30 dollars
-Small = $10 or less

I know moms are busy, so I made the sendout time a little more than a month after signups end - feel free to send early, if that's more convenient for you!

Well prepare to be jealous, because I got SUPER SPOILED by reavesad!!

First of all, this adorable card explaining all the items


and then this beautiful candle with seashells and sand in it!!


She made some white chocolate seashells that unfortunately did not survive the heat here, but also some Ghirardelli chocolate that did (I think?)!


And this amazing nook cover/stand - shown with my nook, of course! (I didn't even tell her I have a Nook!  Seriously awesome stalking skills Smiley )



BUT WAIT, there's STILL more!!

This incredible, HUGE, beach bag that I absolutely LOVE


AND an infiniti bathing suit, that I spent the next half an hour trying different ways to wear!  Isn't it awesome?! (Apparently I am the type of person who will post pictures of herself in a bikini on the internet, haha.  Who knew.)  I tried it all different ways, even with some of my tops underneath!


Thanks so much, reavesad; you're the greatest!

After bugging my sister for a week or so, I finally have pictures to post of my package!! Grin I won't be able to see it in person until next Wednesday ( Sad ) but it looks fantastic!  You did a great job, PenguinSoup - thanks again!! Grin

Everything all together! It looks like it was beautifully packaged!!  Smiley  I'm SO excited to put my own pictures in those coasters!!  In the back is a packet of mini wedding cake crochet patterns!


And, of course, the main item... these ADORABLE bears!!


I LOVE her wedding dress and the colors are just right!  She even has a flower at the bottom!  So pretty!


Thanks again PenguinSoup - Sorry it took me so long to get the pictures!  Embarrassed

Such a great package!  I love the sign & A. Log is so cute Smiley

ETA:  Now it's my turn to post awesome pictures!  Get your wisting and pinning links ready!  Grin

Sarabunny did an AMAZING job with my verb: to journey.  Fittingly enough, I had Sara mail the package to the hotel where I'm currently staying!

The first thing I pulled out of the box is possibly my favorite item from a swap - ever!  It's a beautiful travel embroidery kit!  The outside is gorgeous... I love love love the plane with the heart!!


But now look at the inside!  Sara thought of every detail!  There are scissors, a place to keep my thread... even a clear pocket for patterns... with a pattern in it!! Cheesy


The other thing in the box was this wonderful wooden suitcase box - with ginkgoes (which I love!) and a perfect Walt Whitman quote woodburned on it!  I can't believe you're new to woodburning, Sara, because this is gorgeous.  I love the paint accents too!


But, wait, if I open it up.... there's more!


A box, with a map of home Smiley


An adorable passport holder, with another cute heart!


TWO ID holders! Cheesy


And a magnet, charms, stationary, AND a book journal! Cheesy Cheesy


I LOVE EVERYTHING!  Verb swaps are always the greatest. Smiley  Thanks a million, Sarabunny - everything is perfect! Smiley

I definitely said thank you when I received, but I'm one of those bad children who has been a complete failure at posting pictures!  Major apologies go out to JustKat, who sent me a wonderful package!  I don't know why it was so difficult for me to finally get these posted - it's never been a problem before!  Embarrassed

JustKat spoiled me and made me so much!  It's clear she put a lot of time and effort into all this!

First of all are these gorgeous thread-wrap pendants!  I've never had one of these before and I love them.  You can see there's a chain on the blue one because I've already been wearing it! Cheesy


Here's another shot of it because I love it so much. Cheesy  Sorry the images aren't better - my regular camera broke, so I was using my video camera  Undecided


She ALSO made me this awesome washer pendant with pictures of birdies on it! Smiley  You can see the other side in the mirror.  It's a blue bird and a green bird, just like my blue and green parakeets! Grin


This is beautiful lace... I wish you could see it better because it's really so detailed and gorgeous!


But wait there's more!  This is GORGEOUS and my favorite thing of the group (I think - it's so hard to choose!)  The flower must have taken forever to figure out... this is definitely not something I could have made!


Thanks again, JustKat, you really went above and beyond!  Kiss

Round 1 -- Glass from Haylie

This is sooo gorgeous. My roommates were all in shock when I took it out of the box -- "Oh my gosh, it's like someone painted everything you like on a glass!" Yep, that's pretty much right. The design is totally rad, really striking while still being elegant and sophisticated -- and Haylie even sneaked a Fifth Element reference in there. I tried to photograph this a million different ways, but these are done with my camera phone, so none of them do it justice.

Thank you guys sooooo much! You guys rock and are both so talented!

I'm so glad you like it!!  It was so fun combining everything you like. Smiley  (It's etched right into the glass by the way - totally dishwasher safe; the design can't "come off") Grin


Also, I got my Round 1 & Round 2 packages!!  JacquelineD made me beautiful earrings and Ffrogg526 made me an ADORABLE crocheted snake! Pictures soon... I need to upload them on my other computer.

ETA: Pictures!

Here are the gorgeous earrings from JacquelineD!  They're green and gold & have an anchor - all to honor my sorority! Smiley


They look great on me too Grin  Thanks so much JacquelineD!!  They're fantastic. Smiley


And here is the cutest snake from Ffrogg526!  I've had this snake on my wist FOREVER... it was one of my very first favorite projects on craftster!


Isn't he a cutie?  I got spoiled. Smiley


He reminds me of the stuffed animal I've had since I was born - Froggy!  Don't they look like the best of friends?


Thanks so much Ffrogg!  Grin
