I am becoming increasingly disinchanted with the idea of doing jewllery because I had a chat with a friend of mine who does it and I can't just go "I want it to look like this" and then have it done.

BUt I do have other ideas.
I'd like to cover a 2008 planner diary and make some recipie cards.

I have made a fair few ATCs using collage in the past and they came out rather cool.
aaand I can't get photobucket to work so I can't show you pics now

oh yay! i would love a diary what a great idea! that will be popular i think. I love butterfly's so if you make me one thats what i want lol hint hint!! i loved that journal ralph made, she knows i love butterflys i think she was teasing me!! lol she sent me a beautiful butterfly pendant last year.

i have to go off to work but I am adding some pics now of items i have done. just some samples.
all good. tomorrow i have a birthday party for 5yo at an indoor play place so if my head isnt in amess lol i will be on line briefly before our scheduled playgroup xmas party which again will be full of kiddies lol so partners will go out say saturday some time when i hear from everyone.

I already started on my wish list loving the journal and cards and diary idea. yay!

Ok my little list of stuff  I can do looks pretty bad, eh?
I'll say I can make notbooks things, but ralph and Astarael's are better.
=D
Um. I can sew Bags =].
I have a large collection of fabric and junk it'd be pretty.
uhmm.
I don't love making christmas things.
But do we get to give each other christmas cards?

no such thing as pretty bad when it comes to making things for people. 
If you think you would like to recieve it then it is deffinatly good enough.

Apparently my problem with getting photobucket to work the other day was my boyfriends falt, he was torrenting and most websites were affected.
but these are a few of my fave ATC's that I have done for a look of what my collage thingey look like.

This one was for a swap where I found each letter of my swap partners name and made it represent something about her (hopefully, based on what I knew about her).
This one was exquisit I think

Fun

another journal I covered

An ATC based on music I was listening

one of my older ones, armpit

Hi everyone.
great day today with all the kids here!

I love sewing too so there is  always fun things to sew.

How about these small sewn items, eg coin purse, luggage tags, book marks, coasters ( i would love these!), sewn ornament, senw pen holder, listick/lipgloss holders, mp3 or phone cosies, fabric covered mini notebooks for shopping ....maybe negotiate what people want.

here is a xmas site for ideas that are christmassy..

http://www.christmascraftfreebies.com/

If everyone can send in me their wish list add a couple of extra so i can do my best to allocate partners.

Its just a fun easy swap so whatever we get is great!

dont stress just have fun!

I havent had time to do any phone cosies but if anyone wants one, i will customize it, to size of your phone, monogram or pattern fabric etc.

As soon as i have any idea if we have any specific partner requests. i will list the swap partners, hopefully soon!

Please all message me!
