1  Re: Dollar Store Swap goodies in The Swap Gallery by Bettastic on: May 11, 2009 06:33:46 PM
Fran received last Tuesday... but she was out of town and now her son is too sick to spare a moment for pics. So I'm posting for her! She got...


A nintendo controller art piece. It was a mother's day wall hanging, but I painted over it [badly] a nintendo controller with the words 'we will never forget'

The other small was a set of coasters:

I mod-podged mario printouts over the cheesy americana coasters. Not sure how that technique works for making an effective coaster, but I think they're way cute anyway.

The medium- another placemat bag!!


It started out as 5 vinyl placemats. I lined it with shelf liner, sewed em together with some of my own thread and added a dish towel for a handle.

Not pictured were 'canimals' of monkeys (one of her favorite animals) and a botched-ish small. It was two salsa dishes decoupaged with dollar store tissue paper to look (loosely) like robots. You can stack the two on top of each other either way to make two different robots, or just use them as dishes for keys or change or whatnot. Hopefully when baby is better Fran cat show you that... thing. :]

Last two! My camera is being finnicky so I was fighting with my parents' mac to get these up here. (explanation for poor quality photos)


"I still miss you every day"



"I wish my husband was more romantic. Sometimes I think all he wants from me is... sex."

Yay receivedyness!

Sweet bag, with an insert with a zipper:

sweet bonus pins and paperclips


and another extra, scarf kit


and a lovely blue box it came with:


Unfortunately we also had a sad day in swapping land:

I'm pretty sure the glass in the frame was decorated with lyrics of one of my favorite songs, "I Wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair" by Sandi Thom" Awesome! ... if only. (:] sorry fran!

group shot: (piece of glass you can see colored on the wallet)



Thanks fran! It's all wonderful!!! Cheesy
