12  A Tray Full of Love in Valentine's Day by SonjaBoo on: February 10, 2015 02:59:31 PM
I have had this shadowbox/tray for ages and finally got inspired to do something with it -- Cupid evidently shot his arrow into my brain!



There's a little bit of everything here. Heart beads, buttons, paper flowers, ephemera, etc. The big silver key is something I picked up in the bargain bin in Michaels at least a year ago, and the big heart in the center is plastic and colored with alcohol inks. The silver heart down in the lower left corner was a dud experiment with a melti-pot, but it worked out fine for this. The cupid up at the top was a plastic cake decoration that I then applied some gold burnishing stuff too -- pretty classy!


Here's a before and after of how the Cupids came out -- I have about four more that are looking for a home now.


Anyway, this was definitely a stash buster! I'm totally in the mood for Valentine's Day now. Cheesy

Thanks for looking!

I claim anna.wahnsinn for a French-German dictionary and the bees wax pellets!

Claims allowed at one time: 3
Total claims: 1
Claims outstanding: 0
In transit: 0
Received:

Choose 1:
Rapunzel scarf -- super soft with pink, white, black yarns. I made this a while ago and it's never been used.


Deer cards -- I made these last year for our family Thanksgiving party. I was going to send out formal invitations. They didn't make it. Cheesy Now they can be yours! Seven deer cards with brown envelopes. The cards are blank inside.


Microscope slide pendants -- these are some of my overstock from when I had an Etsy shop a few years back. (Someday maybe it will return. But not today!) There's Supergirl, Green Lantern, an orange flower that has had the solder antiqued, and a forget-me-not that has faded a bit. (Still pretty -- this one is encased in two bevels.) Can send with or without a cord to wear them from!


Kanzashi brooches -- all four for 1 point, or take one for 1/4 of a claim. I made these as well and they are also overstock from my Etsy.


1/2 point...

Yarn! All three for 1/2 a point! A giant ball of yellow chenille yarn and two smaller skeins of soft yarns. I don't think they are full skeins, but very little was used of either. They are lovely colors!



1/4 point each! Bargain basement prices! Grin

Craft books - 1/4 point each. Tons of paper projects in these!





This fabric is a somewhat stretchy cotton that is 16" wide and about 4 and a half feet long -- a weird cut, but the print is super cute! Great for baby stuff.


Hair pins! Choose from orange marbles, gold buttons or french fries. I set for 1/4 point.


For your altered art/paper needs. Acrylic album, art parts kit, small book with "girlfriend" papers inside that you can alter.


Chipboard flowers -- can combine these to make a book. (You get all the chipboard flower.). Grow book kit -- to make a cute book for someone expecting a little girl. Sold!



Chipboard forest critters -- all for 1/4 claim.


Embellishments! All for 1/4 claim. Chipboard cool people, black felt bug border, blue flowers.


Stamps -- most of these are used, but in good shape. Pick 4 for 1/4 claim.


NEW ADDS!
Lot of vintage bias tape:


Lot of vintage zippers and lace trim:


7 Gypsies fabric-like paisley tape embellishment or box of colorful brads (never opened)


"Ticket" embellishments -- great for altered books or scrapping or making Christmas tags, etc. They are on a heavy plastic -- I think they may also be 7 gypsies.


Vintage crafting books! My aunt passed these along to me, and I just know that I am not honestly going to use them. I'd be happy if they went to a good home! Let's say choose 2 for 1/4 point!

I finally have pictures for this drool-worthy gallery! I apologize for taking so long -- we have had computer issues.

First, some incredible tags from Flygirl88 -- they have such a vintage feel, I adore them!


A close-up of some extra-special tags -- these have vintage sequins in them from her grandmother's sewing stash. I treasure these!


And they were all sent along with this beautiful card with hot-air balloons:


Next, some gorgeous tags from Onyxnox -- I really can't pick a favorite!


I can't seem to get this photo where it's NOT sideways... so sorry. But hopefully you get the gist of how awesome these are! Also shown is the awesome deer card she sent them in:


And finally, from bec99 -- amazing counted-cross stitch tags! I don't want to give these away. Cheesy


Thank you ladies so much for swapping tags with me -- I really love them all. They will make for very festive gift giving! Grin

Here are the gorgeous Halloween houses that I received!
First, an incredible house from P.E.S.T:

I'm sorry I'm so late in getting photos up -- I have been having ridiculous technical issues on this end! Anyway, better late than never, right?

I received awesome mug cozies from spikefan -- I love these! They will be going toward Christmas gifts. Thanks so much! Grin


And I also received this beautiful rainbow bowl from Averia -- this will be going in my craft room! Cheesy


Thanks so much for swapping!

18  Re: OOWYHS 2014 Discussion Thread in New Swap Theme Ideas by SonjaBoo on: October 26, 2014 05:22:59 AM
I live in a small "city" (it's really a town, but they call it a city now because of the population -- but it feels nice and small!) Our location is really central to so many things that I am now realizing I totally take for granted. We're in Mass, and I can be in NH in 8 minutes, and can get to Maine in 20. I can also get to Boston in 40 minutes, depending on traffic. So there are a lot of stores around us. My favorite store in the entire world is called Absolutely Everything (you can find them online) and they are about 25 minutes from where we live -- it's the best mixed media store ever! (Super sweet lady who owns it too.) We have JoAnn's in the next town, and Michael's just opened up there too.

Kind of a funny story -- I used to have to drive about half an hour to get to the nearest Michael's, but over the summer they started building one in the town over from us. My husband joked that they would open it on my birthday... and it opened on the day before my birthday. And on my actual birthday, we went over there in the middle of a huge rainstorm. When we came out, this was the view:



Ha!
