21  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Christmas Stocking Swap Round 9! on: August 25, 2013 03:54:04 PM
What do y'all think?

Signups: Sept. 15 - Sept. 30, 2013
Sendouts: December 1, 2013

We will each make/decorate a 12-16" tall stocking (cuff to heel) and fill it with goodies.  We will make/decorate and fill with our partner's tastes in mind.  Each stocking will have at least 50% crafted goodies, the remainder may be purchased supplies or items.  There will be check-ins every two weeks, so please be prepared to check-in!   Each organiser will check in with her group of swappers via PM, you must respond to that PM.   It's a very long crafting period and we would hate to lose anyone along the way.  You may choose one of three sizes to do in this swap and you will be paired accordingly.  Sometimes there will be an odd number, so please note if you are willing to do (for example) Small or Medium or maybe Medium or Large.
                      Small - concentrate on a fab stocking and fill with at least 3 crafted and 3 purchased items
                      Medium - do a great stocking and fill with at least 7 crafted and 5 purchased items
                      Large - aka Spoiler!  A great stocking and no end of goodies!!

NOTE:  This is a holiday based swap so please do not send late - there are times when life interferes with crafting and we all understand that, however, a temporary negative will be given to anyone who sends more than two weeks past the sendout date, according to Craftster rules.  If you send late at all, it will be noted in your feedback.  Communication issues will also be noted.  We like to run a very nice, fun and timely swap.

Here are past galleries:

As you can see, it's generally a very large swap!  It's loads of fun and there are tons of delightful gifts given and received! Smiley  Join us!

24  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Wizard of Oz Graduation Party on: July 01, 2013 09:38:48 AM
When it came time to plan my daughter's graduation party (or Open House as we call it here), she stated that she did not want to do just school colors.  I haven't been to a single one that was anything BUT school colors, but what the heck, right?  So she decided on Wizard of Oz - the whole thing with Dorothy going off on a journey seemed right.

Here we have the cake and cupcakes, made by a coworker:






There was a small candy buffet provided by Munchkin Land Sweet Shop:



All the tables had rainbow color tablecloths and all the cups, napkins, silverware were rainbow colored.  It was very festive!

The centerpieces were redneck wineglasses filled with styrofoam, red crinkle paper and rainbow suckers, kindly provided by the Lollipop Guild:


A chocolate fountain with all kinds of goodies:
