1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Vintage Vacation "Greetings From. . ." Charm Bracelet on: July 08, 2010 02:21:50 PM
Did a fun little summer swap over at Jenny's blog "Everyday is a Holiday".  I have finally figured out how to do those eyepin/bead things - yippee!

(Still stink at photographing glass though!)

2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Completed Projects / Vintage Vacation Scrapbook & Suitcase on: July 08, 2010 02:14:17 PM
I did a vintage vacation swap over at Jenny's blog "Everyday is a Holiday".  (I'm in love with the sweet vintage look of their art.)  One of the things I did was this "vintage" suitcase with old looking labels and tags and a scrapbook with a vintage travel bingo cover and interior pages from "greetings from. . ." postcards, old travel ephemera, etc.

Had so much fun doing this!

3  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Paperclay Easter Bunny on: March 07, 2010 07:55:11 AM
Wasn't sure if paper clay went here - if not feel free to move.  Took my second class from Jenny(The Polka Dot Pixie) yesterday.  She is an amazing teacher.  Everyone in the class comes out with a beautiful finished project.  I have NO skills in this area and I'm still pretty darn proud of how he looks!
4  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Your basic cake o' hatboxes on: August 05, 2009 09:36:15 PM
This was for a baby shower for a little girl who's nursery is "Pooh".  Pretty basic stuff - though try as I might I couldn't get a decent pic.  I was very happy with it - for me it turned out great!  (I love paper crafts, but still am the type to glue my fingers together and end up with sticky, wrinkled surfaces.) The new parents both seemed to like it as well.  Only hiccup was that I couldn't find off-white (or ecru, or ivory, or bone, or cream, etc.) ric-rac.  (sp?  Rick-rack?  Rik-rak?  Rick roll?)  Anyway, what's up with that?  The trim selection at my local fabric places just keeps dwindling, while the pre-packaged stuff gets more and more expensive and generic looking.  Fortunately, inspiration hit and I took the white vintage stuff I had on hand and tea-dyed it.  Ta-da!

5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Game Piece Charms Necklace, Button Bracelet & Earrings on: August 05, 2009 09:22:39 PM
This set was for a friend for her birthday.  She doesn't have pierced ears and has a hard time finding earrings.  These vintage buttons looked like they would be just her style.  The idea for the set was that they could be worn together or apart.  The letters and numbers on the necklace were all significant to her.

6  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Baby Hats & Tu-tus on: August 05, 2009 09:18:32 PM
It seemed as if everyone I knew was having baby girls this year - so I decided it was time to learn to crochet.  These were for a set of twins.

The hats are from the Happy Hooker (they are the sock monkey hat with flowers instead).  After many tries at baby hats this was the first one I was able to do.  The tu-tu's I just made up as I went along - sizing so they would tie around the waist and be about the same size as the onesie.  The flowers just button on.

7  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Crocheted baby hat & matching Mary Janes on: August 05, 2009 09:13:29 PM
I am a pretty new crocheter - and was able to finish this with only a few "do-overs".  The hat pattern looked way different in the photo - but still turned out okay - I found it searching on the web, cant' remember where.  The Mary Janes came from a booklet with several cute pairs of baby shoes that I found at Michael's.

So, if you're looking for a simple and inexpensive baby gift:

8  COOKING / Dessert / Flag Cake for 4th of July - each slice a flag on: July 27, 2009 07:41:21 PM
I know it's a little late - but I just got around to uploading pics.  Saw this on a couple of websites before the holiday and really wanted to try it.  Have to admit I was really surprised when we sliced into it and it actually worked!  You can kind of see that the piece on the left is a slice taken from the cake.  Each slice really looked like a flag when you cut it and put it on the plate.

9  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Charm Swap on: March 04, 2009 03:50:08 PM
Thanks to all who participated - this was a GREAT swap.  You all made it painless for a first time organizer.

Woo-hoo!!  All have been received.  Can't tell you how happy it makes me to look at my necklace.  I love it.

If you have posted in the gallery, you should have received feedback - if not please let me know.
10  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Charm Swap on: January 27, 2009 04:14:10 PM

- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES

   - If yes, understands that Delivery Confirmation number is required for this swap: YES
   - If no, understands that a mailing receipt copy is required for this swap: YES

Details of swap:  This swap is not a partner swap.  Swappers will be making 1 or 2 charms for each of the other swap participants (and don't forget yourself!).  If there are more than 4 participants, swappers will only need to make one charm for each participant - if there are 4 or fewer swappers each person will make 2 different charms for each participant. 

Charms shouldn't be any bigger than approximately 1.5" - not a hard and fast rule, just a guideline.

If making one charm per participant, most people seem to be interested in making the same design (i.e., you could send a soldered charm with the same picture) for each recipient, but this isn't required.  If making two charms per receiver, then those two should be different (so a person doesn't receive two identical charms).

Participants will send charms to all other participants using a DC number. 

Once the swap is closed I will send out addresses to all participants.  But you can start crafting now 
