So the official opening party is July 25th, with send outs July 5th - that way we can all open together hopefully. In the mean time, feel free to post teasers and the like. I know I personally am a big fan of teasers
Nice attitude - I've run across people like that over the years, and I refuse to be guilted and am fine with giving as good as I get when it comes to letting them know just who is responsible for what. I have only seen that bunny out in the nicer weather - I just hope they watched it because we do have hawks, falcons, foxes, coyotes, and wandering cats in the neighbourhood, and I have not seen it in awhile. I would love to have rabbits, or cats, but I know I am allergic to cats, and maybe to rabbit fur.
I always wanted a rabbit - a few years ago, we had a new neighbour in the back - their back corner of their back yard butted up to ours. They had a bunny they let loose out in their yard and I suspect he was rather lonely, because he was constantly at that corner, straining to see my two dogs, who were incredibly intrigued by him. Though I was suspicious they were intrigued by him as food vs. a friend. But whenever I dragged them away from him, he was straining up the chain link to get closer to them.
Anyways, I am posting the partnering list on the first page and will be sending out PMs soon. To accommodate as much as possible for information about international partners, allergies, crafting wants, some partnering requests. I made it so that the majority of people are not sending to whom they are receiving from.
I hope this is OK, and that I am relatively accurate.
onyxnox!! Those hearts are absolutely stunning!!! I wish you could teach me (us?) how you did those.
I think I have a post coming up about it on my blog - I go through the details briefly, but if you want, I can make it more detailed and turn it into a tutorial. I had a lot of fun making them, though they were a bit finicky
I received from FairyHazeDesigns this week too. I love that she used found objects from her camping trips - mine were made from bleached shells found on the beach.
She also received from me and asked for me to post pics as she is in themiddle of moving. I made hers using a combination of stamping, resin, decoupaged washi paper, and shrink plastic for a set of knitting markers, and also sent a couple of resin clay/crystal crochet markers.
I have to admit that I just started making cards in the last year or two, but I am really enjoying it - very close to instant gratification. I took a workshop last fall that was a couple of hours long and learned to make a few different styles of cards. It was a time filler for a craft festival that I attend, between other classes I wanted to take, but it became very addictive for me. I am looking forward to making some cards for this swap.
