I got some SPECTACULAR goodies!
rscowtown sent me TOW reversible cowls! They are pretty rad. I feel all stylish and chic in them! Smiley

Aren't they adorable? I have a thing for keys, but my grandmother who just passed did as well, so it's extra special to me Smiley

penelopewaits sent me a little matryshka/babushka cross stitch! She is so tiny and cute! She also sent along some floss (which I TOTALLY hoard! heehee) which i can't wait to try the gradated color ones!

Thank you so much ladies!! I love my goodies Smiley

My fancy new phone backs up my pics to my google cloud which is cool. But it took me a bit to find said pics in order to post them here:)
Crystal sent me some awesome goodies, and the prizes for the little ones were a HUGE hit!!

She sent a tee for each of my disney loving nephews

They knew who they were instantly and the little one kept picking up the shirts and saying argh! while pointing at each. Cutest thing in the world!
She also included a dress for my sassy little niece. It was a total hit (my sister, her mom, loved it so much too!) The little goof said "oooooo buzzzzzzzzz" about a million times and kept showing it to me and her brothers.

It was so wonderful of you to include the goodies for them and they were so special! Smiley

On to MY goodies Wink
Um so I told Crystal at the beginning of this swap that we were kinda the same person. Then she made me exactly what I was trying to figure out how to make her (different princess, but still!). This is an Aurora/Briar Rose apron. It's kinda amazing!! Actually it is full on spectacular. I was trying to come up with a way to make a Belle one and she made me one of my Favoritest princess!! Smiley
ball gown side

and the reverse

the detail is phenomenal!!
She also made me an etched mug. I hope you can see the image - its a dragon from sleeping beauty, I believe

And my nightmare before christmas treasures!!
The frogs breath held (notice past tense Wink) some delectable shortbread. I have a few pieces left that I may bring to my grandma. she's on "house arrest" b/c her blood work is not so good. I figure home made treats are always a spirit lifter Smiley
The Deadly Night shade is an addition to my addictions. Its filled with loose tea!! I have  a serious tea problem heehee. This camouflages it so well!!

So I got completely spoiled.! Completely!!
This was such a fun swap and I had a kick ass partner!!

*Have you read the entire swap information for this swap?:
*When sending sent/receive notifications to the swap organizer, there are four juicy pieces of information that must be included about each ATC.  What are they?  (Scroll down in the swap info under this questionnaire to the area "Once you have sent or received a card"; the answer is in red.):

*Everyone is welcome and encouraged to join this swap!  Sign-ups are open all month--YAY!  PM me the above questionnaire to get started, and please wait to be accepted into the swap before making any claims. **Please make sure you are not late or flakey in any of your other swaps, and that you have good communication.** This is a super-uber-amazingly-stupendous swap, So Have Fun!  


Claims are made throughout the month.  You have two weeks from the time you make a claim to send that claim.

You can make as many (or as few, as little as 1) claims as you want throughout the month as long as you never go over your allowed amount of outstanding claims. (An outstanding claim is a card that has not been received; when that card is received your number of outstanding claims goes down leaving you open to bring it back up to 7 or 10.)

Posting pictures of received ATCs is required for this swap.


1. Claims are made using the following procedure:

Person A (the swap organizer) will begin the swap by posting a list of themes in this swap thread.
Person B will choose a theme from one of A's themes and make a claim by posting his/her own list (see below for formatting of post).
Person C will make a claim on one of B's themes and post his/her own list.
Person D will make a claim on one of C's themes and post his/her own list etc...
This continues through the end of the month, when the swap organizer makes the final claim and closes out the claiming part of the swap.

2. How many claims can be made by each individual:

The number of claims each person is allowed depends on the following criteria:
*Friends of Craftster: 10 claims
*Those who aren't Friends of Craftster: 7 claims
*First time swappers (whether Friends of Craftster or not): 1 claim.  Once the initial claim has been sent, and its new owner has reported it received, the first time swapper is free to make more claims, either 7 or 10 dependent on being an FOG or not.

3. How to make a claim:

A claim post should include the following information:
1. The theme you are choosing and who youre sending it to.
2. Statistical info about your current swap claims status:
Claims = Claims currently outstanding (ie., how many not yet received by their new owners.) (This number goes down each time a claim is received, and up each time you make a claim.)
Sent = anything currently in the mail.
Received = the cards received by the people you've sent them to.
3. Your location.
4. Your personal preferences.
5. Your list of themes


I claim GenericFabulosaSwapper for heffalumps/weasels ATC.  

3 claims, 2 sent, 1 received

I live in Massachusetts, USA.  I would prefer not to receive anything violent, political, or religious.  

My themes are:
1)   Flowers w/ Faces
2)   Fun in the Sun
3)   A Visual Dipiction of an Emotion
4)   Drunken Ramblings
5)   Your Favorite Medium

1. Send a personal message to the person you have claimed and request their address.
2. You have 2 weeks to complete each card, and have it in the mail to its new owner.  

1. Please PM the organizer when you send or receive a card.  (It's also good to notify the person you received from or are sending to.)  
2.  Please include one of these at the title of the message: July ATC Swap--Sent or July ATC Swap--Received (Be sure to include the month, since I generally run multiple months at a time)
3.  Be sure and include (1) the "send by" date, as well as (2) the theme and (3)who sent it to (4)whom, in each message to the ATC swap organizer, when you're referring to sent or received ATCs.  (That's four juicy pieces of important information that make my life as a swap organizer OH so easy!) Easy as pie!

For example, you could use this format:
I sent some ATCs today!  

MeCraftsterMemberBloop --> YowzaSwapper (fantasmic theme)

MeCraftsterMemberBloop --> WowwieSwapsper (stupendous theme)
MeCraftsterMemberBloop -->WooHooYeeHawSwapper 07 (yet another fascinating theme)


This lets the organizer easily access the swap info, so it can be updated.  

It is OH so important to post pictures of the amazing cards you receive!  This is the best way in the world to let it be known how special it is that you've received a wonderful treasure of someone else's creativity!  

Please post pictures/scans of your received cards in the bop (or make arrangements with your partner to do so).

Positive feedback will be given when all of the cards you sent have been received.   Good communication is always cool!  And be sure and post those pictures in the bop!

If you have any questions please post them in the discussion thread or PM the organizer, redstar13.  This thread is specifically for claims only.
