It was a busy weekend so I didn't get much work done on this thing but I'm putting some time into it today.  Everything's coming together nicely but there is so many different little components.  I should probably make myself a checklist lol.

Here's another little teaser because I couldn't resist -

Hope everyone has a good monday! <3

Let's swap pocket letters!

Pocket Letters are where you take a 9 pocket trading card page and fill each pocket with an ATC (although they don't have to be (and usually aren't) as detailed as an ATC) and small goodies tucked in behind the ATCs (stickers, tea bags, a note, washi tape samples, pictures, ephemera, craft supplies, paper clips, beads) and in one pocket, include a letter.
If you don't know where to find 9 pocket pages they are sold where collectible card games are sold such as Walmat or your local game store.  Or Amazon (25 for $5)

Each pocket can be a different theme or you can have one theme across all 9 pockets

This should be a low cost swap if you keep to all flat items and embellishments and should fit in an
A4 envelope (4 1/4" x 6 1/4") (you would have to fold it but that should not be an issue) or similar size.  I have heard that they should fit into a business sized envelope (4 1/8" x 9 1/2"). Just make sure that it is packaged well and the corners won't tear the envelope! Taping the edges of the envelope might be a good idea.

You can choose 1 or 2 partners.

Check into the swap thread every week!
And thank your partner when you receive!

Anything else youd like to tell the organizer or partner NOT listed in the questionnaire?


Also, remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find other rules about participating in a swap.

Team: Multimedia
Bonus Points: WIP it
Project Name: portfolio shoot
Project Link: -
Brief Description:
I had a whole bunch of costumes for which pictures were long overdue. Since I had to complete a portfolio last week I decided on planning a photoshoot. Luckily I found two friends willing to post in the outfits Smiley And I'm ridiculously happy with the results.
I certainly had to ''keep an eye'' on this project (what else do you do with photography?)

I'm in love with the gallery this month, so many awesome cards, and the themes are really inspiring too. There's a few I might work into my list in coming months.
I got my first 8bit Nintendo character card from curiousfae, it is adorable! Here's a cross stitch Kirby, doing a happy dance  Cheesy

Thanks curiousfae! You picked the perfect medium, and it looks great!

I received my patches from jenleahlynn on Friday!! It was so exciting to get my first ever swap package! And I love them!

First is this cat patch for my theme of cats. Very colorful!

Then this cross-stitched one for my sewing theme. I love the button and the scissors!

And this neat owl because I like owls! She said she did this one as she went along! I think if I tried that I'd end up with some very odd looking creature!

She also sent me this kit of 3 fabrics, some floss and pretty amber beads. Smiley

Thanks again, jenleahlynn!

I love making silly odd dolls.
Walter is an easygoing observative little guy, who likes art and all things dry and moist-free LOL

He's made from paperclay and has a natural linen body with some french knot bumps and stitched joint hoops (man, that took forever).

Hope you guys like him!

I received a pair wonderful, HUGE patches from craftylittlemonkey the other day, in our unofficial swap partnership. She knows me well enough that we didn't need to give each other themes and yet she got me perfectly.

The detail of the embroidered flowers along the bottom is wonderful, and isn't the blue-to-green fabric perfect? It has a very moonlit feel to it.

I've always loved the symbol of the three running hares (it's origin doesn't seem to be known, though it can be traced quite far back), and I especially like that the three are different colours.

Here's a detail of some of the stitching and beading:

Thank you for these! They're the biggest I've ever seen, and I love them!
