21  Re: Winter Ninni Gallery - Send out January 15, 2015 in The Swap Gallery by alwaysinmyroom on: January 07, 2015 06:40:39 AM
I received from rockingbearranch!  I did not realize until I uploaded the pictures at what a crap photographer I am!  I'll try to take better pictures today since it is sunny out (16 degrees but sunny...blech)...

I did not want to delay, though, so here are some interim shots of my adorable new Ninni!

 All decked out in her Santa hat and apron! (sorry, I did not realize I cut off the top!)

Here she is nekkid and furry:

love the plaid backside!

rockingbearranch also sent me the cutest felt fortune cookie with crafting fortunes!  Thanks!

23  Fake Swap Craftalong for Swap Junkies!!! 2015 in Craftalongs by alwaysinmyroom on: January 05, 2015 10:30:30 AM

Too many good swaps to pass up?  How about swapping with yourself?

I am restarting this craftalong because there are just too many swaps that many of us can't join but we want to craft!!!

This is a craftalong for swap junkies.

Do you love swapping?  Do you love getting inspired by swap themes?  Do you maybe get more done with a deadline?


Are you trying to save money? (shipping is pricey!), or maybe you love a theme, but you want to make certain items?  

Whatever your reasons, feel free to join up!
In this craftalong we will be "fake-joining" swaps that are current.  Then we will craft along the parameters of the swap, including send out dates, what needs to be sent, and if extras are allowed or encouraged;  at the end of the swap period we will give ourselves the things we have made!

For example...(fake example)
I want to join the Carnivorous Plant swap, but I don't have a lot of money for shipping this month, and I really want a mug rug embroidered with a plant , so I'm going to fake swap.

I will post in this thread like this:

My name is alwaysinmyroom
I am joining the Carnivorous Plant Swap.
I will make 1 mug rug for this swap
It is due by January 31, 2015.

And now I'm signed up!

I am organizing this fake swap, so I'll keep track of all the participants, and send out reminders when people's swaps are almost due.  When you have finished your item(s), please post here gallery style, so we can all congratulate you!!

Just to be clear, you can sign up here to fake-participate in ANY swap...and I'll let you fake-join up to 5 fake-swaps.

Please, only sign up if you are serious about completing the swaps.  I understand that life happens, but I'll take time every day (or 2 or 3) to update everything, so please don't sign up if you're not going to try, you know?

love those hats with just a hint of color!

that1girl--fantastic stuff--just loving all the cable hats you have done this year!

I made this hat to test gauge on a hat I am making...glad I did...it was too big for hubby, so I will scale it down...took it to the gym and found a big dude to give it to! Grin

Looks like I will end 2014 with 7 knitted hats!  Going to get my list together for 2015!

How about you guys?  Are you in for 2015?

30  50 Projects 2015 --POST YOUR 2015 Lists in Craftalongs by alwaysinmyroom on: December 17, 2014 12:53:17 PM

Once again, we are having a craftalong for all to share whatever and how many projects you get done in 2015.  You can keep a list or not...you can post as you go...this is very flexible and meant for you to keep track and brag a bit about what you got done! Grin

You can even just keep track of your projects and totally ignore us out here, but I promise no one bites and we love to chat and give kudos, encouragement, ideas, etc.  It is quite addicting to come here and see all of the wonderful things!

There will be challenges and prizes as well....I am forgetful and busy, so some of you need to remind me when I forget to announce winners and give out prizes!!!  I will try to be better, but I say that each year with no success...

Talking about challenges...here is something to think about before 2015 hits us:

When did you first get into crafting?  Do you have a fond memory of one of the first things you ever made?  How did you feel about making something? Do you have any pictures of your project or of you at that time?

Post in January and you will get one bonus entry into the challenge for the month! Grin

Bonus question answered!



















Wile E Songdog


Jan-Feb Challenge:

1. Make at least three projects using the same color...it can be any medium, fabric, beads, etc. but they must be the same color (each three will count as one entry, so if you do six, you get two entries)

 *** multi/rainbow will count as a color or you can use it to make the third of any of your other colors!*****

this applies to Mio, Sylvan and all you other multi color craftsters!!! Grin
2. Make something for charity or for Random Acts of Kindness (each will count as an entry)
3. Finish a WIP  (it must be on your list to qualify)--each completed WIP counts as an entry

PRIZE: $25 gift certificate to any online place of your choosing
