1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Personal/Private Swap Gallery - October 2006 on: October 13, 2006 04:51:09 PM
McJulie-O and I didn't make it for the Reading Swap, so we decided to do a private swap with each other.  She's a wonderful craftster and I'm so lucky to have her as my swap partner.

Here is the beautiful butterfly tote bag that she made.  It has pretty butterfly print with gorgeous colors. Check out the butterfly shape pocket on the front!

And here is the equally cheerful lining. She sewed really neat! I love this bag. It's very roomy, perfect for me : a person who lugs all her belongings whereever she goes.

And she also made me the lab glass pendants with neat reading theme, here's the front:

and here's the back:

And, if that's not enough ... she made me PLENTY of cards! She also included cards with my favorite book/picture (Howl's Moving Castle) and a picture illustration from my blog.


Thank you so much McJulie-O.  You're a wonderful swap partner, and thank you for proposing this personal swap. I can't help feeling so lucky!  Cheesy

I've received your PM, McJulie-O, and duly replied.  Must add: I'm glad you approached me. Am excited of the prospect.

I'm not sure if that was suppose to be sarcastic...I hope not.
No, no, it is not sarcasm. I am sorry if it gave such appearance!

Sigh, I have not been online until today ... so I missed the chance that you gave me.  Thank you, that was very kind of you  Smiley  I wish you all a wonderful crafting time!

Wow, you are quick/efficient. I thought I still have time to sign up ... mistakenly thinking that I could have done it today (june 26).

I requested my partner to craft for my son since he's very interested in rock study at the moment.  Debra/goatgoddess was graciously willing to do so. Thank you so much, Debra!!!

She sent Christer rocks ... to add to his rock collection. Here are some rocks found in Colorado:


These ones are from Livingston, Montana:

And fossil found near her pond in Texas:

They're all nicely packed in a container.

Rock magnets ... they are now beautifying our refrigerator door, holding Christer's notes, etc.:


Rock bookmarks ... Christer uses them to mark a book that his dad is reading to him, and his current book:


And ... a "Have a gneiss day" stenciled shirt that he loves so much, that I have to wash it every night while he's asleep:


Once again, thank you so much, goatgoddess!  Each one of your gifts is very much appreciated and used by Christer.  Smiley

That purse is darling and it suits you completely!  It reminds me of crochet dude's chick on the halfshell. But, I rather like your style better, it doesn't have the "love handles" on the side. You did a wonderful job, AlmondEyes!  I do hope you'll share the pattern with us.  Smiley

At last! The package arrived!  Grin  I'm so happy that you finally got your package, Cosmic! I truly didn't like it that you have to wait for so long, and you were ever so patient and gracious about it. Bless your heart!  Kiss
I'm sorry that most of the glasses did not make it, I showed the package before sealing it and was told that they would be okay since everything was packed tightly. But, I'm glad that you like everything else. I hope I didn't over do it with your favorite color ... my son took a look at the package and commented, "There are lots of purple in there. I hope she likes purple." Hehehe. Cheesy

bijoixpuck: I just started a nee diet today; maybe I would not have to keep doing this if I didn't have to eat so many of my words! I need to copy your sign and put it on my fridge.
Freegranny, you are just too cute! Just a thought ... perhaps the diet is needed because all your words are so sweet  Wink

Hey there, like my candle, if you included something that might melt or break or otherwise create a curious problem for the post office, they may open the the package, and that might be stopping it up somewhere...  Mine had a sticker on it that said; re-sealed at Seattle central processing something or other, and a hand written spot where someone wrote in 'candle melted'. just a thought!!
Thank you, Javastain, for the comforting thought. I appreciate it.

Cortag04 received her package more than a week ago, she's probably busy, so I'll post the pictures for her.
She said she loves bags. Here is a mini backpack, the theme is He Loves me. It came with a picture note of a girl counting flower petals, muttering away, "He loves me ... He loves me not ... He loves me .. etc." The message is count no more petals, He loves you!


I told Cortag that this clutch purse is a combination of us, her love of bag & favorite bible verse, and my favorite colors & little character. The fabric is from a variety of scraps pieced together (Is this called a patchwork?)

I assume she has a dog because of her avatar. It's a bowl mat for her pet.

This scarf symbolizes that Jesus loves us, died for us (the cross), wants to be in our life & hearts(the white is Him, the black is us).

When I was at the bead store I saw the green cross. I thought it was pretty and soothing color ... just like Jesus, He's lovely and peaceful. Here is the crocheted choker built around the cross.


I used to teach, so I go a bit nutty over theme some times. I hope I don't come across like a scarry fanatic. Embarrassed
