7861  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: A Jar of Mini Whimsies Swap Gallery on: April 25, 2008 11:51:57 AM
After a morning of sitting at the car dealers waiting for them to fix my car, it was such treat to come home to find a box of whimsies waiting for me! My partner, kristen219, spoiled me with a couple of extras, too!

Stuffed into the jar:


And some close-ups:

Cool fabric, mini notecards, stickers (butterflies and pirates!), furry green fabric (future mini-monster), cherry appliques and a vintage-y postcard plaque.


A bunch of very cool beads and charms to make stuff with! I love the key and the heart! And, the purple polymer beads are very cool (did you make them, Kristen?) and will be turned into earrings, I think Wink


A mini manicure set, more cute emery boards, sticky notes, beads, awesome paper clips, cute little buttons (check out the colored pencil ones), little notebook paper charms, a thimble, a duck (probably one of my favorite items, for some inexplicable reason), a bear rubber stamp, pretty binder clips, a bejeweled hair clip, a mini bottle of Tylenol, and some felt stick-on numbers and letters.


And, a shot of a very pretty bracelet! It's so perfect for Spring!



Thanks, Kristen! I hope you like your whimsies as much as I like mine! Thanks for being my partner!  Grin

it seems like this is the month that everyone's kind of struggling to get done! for me, it's the sunshine, dragging me out for walks and picnics where i don't think to bring my crochet.

craftADDchick - i love those colours! all the ends you have to weave are worth it, the colours look soo good together!


Thanks! I need all of the encouragement that I can get on the colors of this one.  The more I look at it the more the color combo is starting to grow on me.

And, you seem to be correct in how folks are struggling to finish this month. We've had over a week of gorgeous weather so it does make it hard to sit inside and crochet Wink

I thought you must have another one coming soon!  I'm only keeping up with this thread because I know you aren't done yet!  Good job!


Thanks for the support! You see, I really do get to things eventually Wink

Thanks! The rose looks lighter in the photo than it actually is. I almost considered adding in the light green/sage to my color palette to tone down the rose, but I think it'd be too much. I'll get used to it as I go, I guess...

I know my partner received yesterday morning, but I have yet to hear from her!

Me too! But, I know she had to work some crazy hours earlier this week, so I'm guessing that's probably what happened. And, I'm trying (not very successfully, though Wink ) not to worry! I'm being such a dork about it...eeek!

Wow! This is beautiful! I checked out your tute (thanks!) and I love the little trick of using the corner punch- makes it look so professional! What are the "cut and dry nibs"? I've never heard of them. How do they work and where do I find them? Because I'm definitely going to attempt this for someone...not sure which city though (my city has one of the worst/non-existant skylines in the country Tongue ). Maybe someplace I've travelled like Seattle, San Francisco or London. They have cool skylines...

MistressT, you got such a fun jar! And, it's funny because I sent my partner a couple of smashed pennies too (New England Aquarium and Franklin Park Zoo...both in Boston). I have a collection of my own, so the next time I go to Salem (which won't be around Halloween...madness...once is enough Wink ), I'm looking for the penny smashing machine there!

I also love the skull hands! Such fun stuff!


ETA: Just wanted to say my partner already received, so I didn't spoil any secrets Grin

I finally finished weaving in my ends so here's my April square! I'm not sure I'm lovin' the rose and peach combo, but maybe I just need to use the rose a bit more. Anyway, here it is in all of it's glory Wink




And, this weekend, I'll be working on the May '07 square so when May '08 rolls around, I should be ready!
