5721  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Vampire/Vampyre Swap (SIGNUPS 5/14/06 - 5/28/06; MAIL BY 6/19/06) on: May 28, 2006 08:57:11 PM
Okay, partners have been assigned, but I haven't sent information out to you yet.  I will get that done tomorrow (Monday).  I know it's before midnight, but it's done now!

I should have your partner info to you all tomorrow fairly early in the day.

I had a partner that specifically said that she would love a certain item and if it was thrifted, that was fine.  I thrifted the item, embellished it and she said she loved it.  I think that most people wouldn't mind as long as they knew that's what you were going to do.

When I saw that quilt my jaw dropped and I said "OH MY GOD."

I second that!  OMG Laural!  You are amazing.  Now how do I get myself paired up with you so that it looks like an accident?  *off to fiendishly plan*

verycrafty - the headband itself isn't reversible, just the scarf ends have 2 different fabrics.  You can see both when worn.  Absolutely cute!

KCGal - yeah, could have just been an "in" name in 1966.  I graduated with 3 other Dawn's!  I don't particularly LIKE "Dawn", but it's better than the other.LOL

My parents weren't hippies either, but they were really young.  My mom got preggers when she was 17 and my dad was 19.  Mom had to wait until she turned 18 so she could run away and marry my dad.  Kinda romantic, eh?  Her parents kept her in the house and told her she would give up the baby and marry some old guy instead.  *shudder*

My mother named me after herself, she's named after an aunt - Elvina.  Thankfully she gave me an easy middle name, which is the only one I use: Dawn.  Mom was quite upset when I didn't pass the name on to my daughter.  I wouldn't join for me, but for my kids, if that was okay.

My daughter is Katelyn - we find Kaitlin, Kaitlyn, Caitlyn, Caitlin, but never Katelyn.  Seems simple, doesn't it?

My son is Griffin - right now it's not too popular of a boy's name, at least around here.

As a side note:  once my sister mentioned that we should all go in and see if we could get a discount on name changes if we did it in a family group!LOL  She hates her middle name, she's Heather Jean.  She's always wanted something exotic, I think.LOL

Ok, I was close.LOL  I usually can figure out what all the little shortcuts are, although when I first started reading Mary Sue lost me completely!LOL

I received totally amazing hair gizmo's from liebschien yesterday!  She said that she tried things she hadn't tried before, but I would never have guessed it!  They are awesome!

Close up of the beads on the hairsticks - I had to take them out of my hair to do the photo:

An Aschnebly (did I spell that right?) headband in my fave color:

a comb with fuzzy knitting?crochet? (anyhow it's pretty!), a hairtie with a crochet cover and a fantastic barrette:

A close-up of the barrette.  My daughter confiscated the barrette, she thought it was totally cool - she's 11yo.  I may never see it again.  I took it out of her hair for the pic.

I love my new hair gizmo's and now I think I may need more.  Thanks again, liebschien!!!
