Class/Challenge/House Pride:CoMC
Project Name:Pokemon TGC damage tokens
Brief Description: So recently I've become interested in the Pokemon Trading Card Game. Ive been collecting the cards since I was about 9, but never learned how to actually play the game. So I dug through my things and got my cards and a couple of battle mats, but I had no damage tokens or Burn/Poison markers! So I made some with perler beads! I'm going to make some more soon, and other things too! ^.^

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Quidditch Owl Post
Project Name:Painted Owl Rock
Brief Description: For this project, we were to make an owl, or something with paper as a main component. So I found a rock, washed it and painted it. I used acrylic paint and a satin varnish. Right after I finished painting it the first time, Annoying Baby Sister, who was using watercolor paints at the time, grabbed it and started painting all over it, so I had to wash it and start over. Thankfully the black lines had stayed.

I received from ladybugsandbumblebees today.  She sent me a few patches and some fabric and bits and bobs for future patches.

I really love the space one.  The alien is really cute! And the dobby patch is great!! Thanks a bunch!

Im so glad you enjoyed your badge pioneer! I had a blast making it, wasnt sure if it was side-showy enough. Plus i kinda went nuts with the beading  Roll Eyes

I recieved today from pioneer9. Just look at this sweet little black cat face. I absolutely love it! Im completely blown away by the teenie tiny stitches and the adorable little button (I've never seen one so small).
Thank you so much!  Grin

I recieved from pioneer9 today! I got the most amazing little beauty! she is so sweet, and has a little bat friend to keep her company.

She reminds me of Edward Gorey's work, which i love!

I love all the little details, her stitched mouth, little bows and even shoelaces!

Thank you so much! I love her to pieces

@rockingbearranch:  That's a very interesting depiction of life; I'd be interested in hearing some more about the symbolism of the objects floating inside the flask.  Nice shining effect on the bottle stopper too!

ME TOO! This has to be the most interesting ATC I've received. It definitely tells a story.

I received today from geekgirl1000100 for my vintage shabby chic with burlap theme. Of course she added another theme- Butterflies! I'm loving it!  Grin

I had to take a photo of this colorful note card. What a beauty! I'm assuming it's colored with shimmery gel pens?

Thank you so much! Beautiful collage work. I love making collages but I could definitely improve my skills.

Details of swap:

This has been a really fun swap in the past.  It gives participants a chance to get to know more about other members of our crafty community.

The idea is to find something that you have in common with your partner, and craft to that.  Maybe you dig the same TV show, or types of books.  Maybe your hair is the same color, maybe you both just love Mexican food, or you have the same number of kids.  Perhaps you both play an instrument, or both love to run. Whatever it is, you can craft something that has to do with your commonalities.  

And we wanna hear what you have in common!  So make sure when you post your goodies in the gallery, that you share what your commonality is!  Grin

Also, don't forget that you need to post in the thread when you sign up, and drop in at least once a week, let us know you're crafting away merrily.

This swap will have a more in-depth q'naire than you might be used to, just to help get some juices flowing regarding what to share with your partner.  I realize that we are going to be sharing a lot of ourselves with total strangers, so be intelligent about what you tell them, but share as much as you feel comfortable with. The questions are mainly for guidelines, so if you feel uncomfortable answering any of them, feel free to skip those ones.

This swap will be for one medium and 2 smalls --OR-- 2 mediums.  Spoiling is allowed if agreed upon by partners.  (Of course spoiling is allowed!)  A handy dandy guide to sizes:

By Time
-Large = 3 or more hours
-Medium = 2 or more hours
-Small = 2 or less hours

By Size
-Large = A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
-Medium = one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
-Small = Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

By Price
-Large = $30 or more
-Medium = $10-$30 dollars
-Small = $10 or less

Send outs will be expected by July 30.  Tracking number will be required if shipping within the US.  If shipping internationally, PM me info from your receipt.
