21  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Unique Pin cushion gallery of wonder on: September 04, 2010 03:23:55 PM
I'm so glad you like everything, Gamemom42!! That is the main reason I swap...I unfortunately have a family that really has little appreciation for handmade anything except cake LOL so since my hubby really doesn't need a pincushion... I have to dump my junk on you guys  Wink!

I'm glad the jewelry will get a good home...it is just sitting in bags now since I don't do my jewelry line anymore. That adorable water bottle was being sold by my niece to raise money for band. I really love them so I just bought tons! It was really funny that they just happened to have bees on it! I'm so glad you like everything and glad that Bertram is working out. If he doesn't get that bridge "trolled" up to your exacting standards, just let me know and (in her very best cockney accent) I'll give 'im a proper boot right up the backside I will!

Can't wait to see all the rest of the goodies!!!

Craftster swap hugz

23  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Unique Pin Cushion swap, sign ups 8.1.10 thru 8.14.10, s.o.=9.1.10 CLOSED on: September 02, 2010 09:25:45 AM
They said your package should get to you either on Friday or Sat., so its okay to walk away from the mailbox until then.  I hope you like what I made for you.  It's so funny, when I finished it I thought, "Oh, she'll love it!".  When I boxed it up, I thought " I think she'll really like it".  When I mailed it, I thought " Oh,  I sure do hope she likes it".  Now that its on its way I keep thinking, " Yikes, what if she hates it?".   It's like I mail my self confidence away with the packages.  Oh well, we'll just have to wait and see. 


( I really do think you'll like it )

Well, we'll know in a few minutes, as my hubby just stopped by the house to check and said I had a package! Love it when the post is fast! Gamemom42, you should really check the package before you seal it up...but I will post your confidence as soon as I find it in the box Cheesy! Now, let's hope that the post going TO you is just as quick!

Whew...just got my computer back (bad thing about owning a computer repair shop, yours is always the last fixed!!) so that I could let gamemom42 know that I sent today!!! Your felt desert oasis with canoe is on its way LOL!! (It isn't really a canoe Wink )! I will pm the DC just as soon as my dogsbody (i.e. husband) returns with it!! I'm so excited to see what I'm getting that I am going to camp out by my mailbox! I just hope that Gamemom42 likes it!

I will now step away from the computer (at least 3 feet) and try to control my swap anxiety. I wish I was a better packer.

And Gamemom42, I apologize for the horrible colors of tissue paper I used to pack your package...it was all I had on hand...I laughed when I saw it...and said...oh great...she hates neon...so let's pretend I did it to be ironical!!! LOL

Those are darling! Better watch out for small mustachioed Italian men named Mario attempting to steal that mushroom! I love the size and color of the blue flower. Really fun! Great start!!

I'm having a very hard time deciding exactly what to make, but I guess I better settle on something quickly.

Me too! It's unusual for me in that I haveTOO many ideas. Usually I have great ideas up until the end of sign-ups and then the second I get my partner- *BLANK*. But I finally picked the one that would be the most fun to make and hopefully I would squee at if I were the one getting it!!! I think there is gonna be a decent squee factor actually. argh...I hope I didn't jinx it


Wait.....gotta fix that...

You're gonna hate it Gamemom42! Just throw it away when you get it!!! (hope that unjinxed me LOL)

ok...so sneak peek

Super excited! Already approved too! I love pincushions!! I can't have enough!! Been ages since I had time to swap and I just miss the heck out of it...can't wait!!!

Whew...we got it...husband warmed it slightly with an embossing gun and after a bit, the cover just popped off!

  So for all you artists, if it sticks, warm it up! Thanks all for keeping me from going bonkers.

Hi all!

Maybe you all can help my hubby and me out. We purchased a painting from Etsy for our office. It arrived today, but the shipping material (i.e. a sheet of corrugated cardboard) covering the face of it has STUCK to the painting!! BTW its acrylic.

We are just sick, its really our first fine art purchase and we spent (for us) a nice chunk of change. Plus, my hubby just loves this painting.

Any ideas on how to get it off without damaging the art??? We've written the artist, but while waiting we thought that the Craftster artist might have some ideas. We are considering heating it with an embossing gun or putting it in a fridge, but don't want to do anything til we talk to someone with more knowledge than us!

Thanks for any help or encouragement!!

30  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: DIY WPI Tool and Link to Tutorial on: March 17, 2010 09:53:38 AM
I really Like this (in a friend way  Cheesy ). I'm keeping the sheep, because I knew immediately (because of the sheep) that this tool had something to do with fiber  Grin! I'm putting the chart in the center "wrap"y bit, because, even as ancient and forgetful as I am (and I am)..I can remember a number long enough to wrap the yarn around an inch of shrinky-dink!! So for me it will then be the most perfect-est wpi tool I have ever seen!

Thanks henri!!!
