1  Re: Recipe Book Swap Gallery!!! in The Swap Gallery by LaFemmeDIY on: February 24, 2007 10:56:37 AM
And this is what Jen sent me!



*An amazing retro-patterned cookbook painted in red and yellow to match my kitchen, with my initial on the cover
*The March issue of Rachael Ray's magazine
*Fruit smoothie Jolly Ranchers -- my new favourite kind!

Each page of the cookbook has it's own retro-patterned paper and little pictures to illustrate the recipe!



Thanks, Jen!  You were a fantastic swap partner!

*Her cookbook
*10 vegan recipes (most of which I tried out --yum!)
*2 heart-shped baking tins
*Vegan hemp lip balm
*3 fruit leathers
*A vegan pecan raisin oatmeal cookie from my co-op
*2 brochures on vegan foods, which also contain recipes

I received today from glittergirl94!!  What a great package!!  



Wine charms with gorgeous glass beads...


I LOVE SHARPIES!!!  8 of them!!


She made me the most amazing scarf!!  I can't imagine how much time it must have taken to make!!  (I have to admit, Melinda, I saw the scarf on your blog, but I thought it was much smaller!  This is just so beautiful!!)  Here's an action shot  Cheesy  

It looks so pretty with my coat!!

Thank you so much, Melinda!!

Babiestarlite13 has now recieved her package from me, and I offered to post pictures because she has a slow connection and it would take a lot of time for her to do it...

Here is all of her loot:


The embroidered dishtowels were probably my favorite part.  I used Sublime Stitching's Viva Las Vegas transfers:


12 envelopes made from magazine pictures:



A Holiday Garland that I made using an idea from a Martha Stewart magazine.  


You make lots of circles and glue 2 of the same to each side of a piece of string.  It took a long time, but it was fun.  Here it is spread out:


The package also had:
Orange Cleaning Wipes
Hematite star-shaped beads
Watermelon Jolly Ranchers
Mini colored pens
Yellow highlighters
A rubber stamp with stars
2 yellow star-shaped buttons
Apple cider mix that is SO yummy
Vitamin C orange drink mix
Travel-sized Mary Kay Satin Hands
Grey marled yarn (lots of rainbow colors in there)
A star/asterik-shaped hole punch
Extra apple gum
Journal with handmade paper and a ribbon bow
Cream-filled wafer rolls- chocolate!

7  For Your Favourite "Shut-In" in Vintage Craft Projects by LaFemmeDIY on: November 26, 2006 12:59:59 AM
From the Fall-Winter 1966-67 McCall's Needlework & Crafts magazine:



"Make your favorite Shut-In a pretty bed cape, pillow, caddy"
"Dainty yoke-style cape slips on easily.  Matching pillow may be tucked where wished.  Bedside caddy of fabric-covered cardboard has pockets, stays put - flat section slips under mattress."

Don't know about you, but I don't know any "Shut-Ins" who wear giant false eyelashes and have such perfectly coiffed hair!!   Cheesy

An ad from the Fall-Winter 1966-67 McCall's Needlework & Crafts magazine:



I guess to be in a Chantelaine model ("the yarn with a French Accent") you have to look surprised!  ("Oh, what?  You're going to take my picture now?")

An ad from the Fall-Winter 1967-68 McCall's Needlework & Crafts magazine.  An ad for Reynolds Yarn:



"Reynolds brings you... Fall Plumage, Plus..."
