Meredith and I worked on this swap during our crafting lock-in last weekend in Vancouver.  Mer made herself a pair of the Bingo barrettes, too, and she's been wearing them all week.  They turned out so cute!  Makes me wish I had hair...  Wink

Oh I'm so glad you like them!  We had fun and it was my first swap.  I have to say that I just wanted to keep making and making things.  I'm hoping to have a digital camera soon, but don't as of now.  Can't wait to see what comes my way!

I'm glad you like them!  I have to say, I was pretty excited when I was looking at the Uno cards and figured out I could use that "R" as a monogram  Wink

BTW, I received very cute stuff from punkrockgirl which I love and which I will post pics of as soon as I find my digital camera!  She made napkin rings from those funky long thin playing cards, and a cute box too, and also a rockin set of coasters from a Simpsons game board.  Oh, we love the Simpsons in our house  Grin  Thank you thank you!!

Hooray!  I got a fantastic package from Freckles this morning!  So glad I stayed at home to work today.  In it was a pair of monopoly hotel earrings with beads in my favorite colors (red/orange/yellow), a set of very cool resin magnets (where are those houses from?!  My gamer fiance and I were trying to figure it out... I love resin!) which are on my fridge as we speak, and 3 superb Clue things from the 70s version of Clue.  They are an awesome purse with the images from the cards, the cover and the 'detective sheet', a candle holder with cards on each side (decoupaged to a glass vessel - I wouldn't have thought of that at all!), and a tall cylindrical tin decoupaged with cards from the game.  Not only do I just love the things you made, but during our crafting lock-in, Melinda had copies of this version of Clue (the one we all played as kids) and I was begging her to make me things from it!  So, way to go!

Hopefully I'll have pictures to post soon.  We got a digital camera free from a friend yesterday and I have to figure out how to use it...

The houses are from Advance To Boardwalk.  I did a huge project with about 300+yards of wire, string, game pieces and beads.  Many Leftovers were crying to be crafted.  I am glad you like the gifties.  Mel sent me the Candy land cards and guys so I am trying to decided how to do them.

Mer, do you mean the 60s version of Clue, the one that is kinda modern-art looking that I had the color photocopies from?  Me so jealous!  I am a total nerd when it comes to Clue.  You have to post pics!

Ah ha, I think there are a bunch of Advance to Boardwalk pieces in our Box of Odd Game Pieces, so I must look up the houses! (My husband wanted the other pieces for another gaming application, so he thrifted several copies of AtB.)

I'm not in this swap, but I was in the first one and am a total boardgame geek, plus I saw the stuff Mel and Mer made, so I had to look in on this swap.  Great ideas, everybody!

Ah-ha!  I thought they looked like Monopoly houses, but they were different colors so I was confused!

Mel, yep, they're from the game we had as kids and the one you had the copies of that I was begging for.  It's tres cool!  It was very satisfying for my first swap!  Freckles Rocks!

Okay, here's how geeky we are.  When Meredith was making the Yahtzee mirror, we wanted to make the score sheets look like there was a game in progress, so if you look, your name is on one, and my name, and Mer's name, and we took turns writing in the scores so that it would be different handwriting AND we got Marty to write in yours so it would not be the same handwriting as ours.  AND we made sure we filled out the scores in such a way that you are winning.

GEEKS!!  Grin

Sorry to send so late.  I received a playing card clock.  It is very cool and is hanging in my game room/bar.  Thank you so much!

I just got my package from lilmissdogooder today. Thank you very much. Smiley

I got:

An old maid playing card magnet (What does the DAVIDSON imprint on the frame mean?)

A Bingo notebook

A Playing card notebook

A Bingo notepad

A bottlecap with dominos in it?

and

I really like the domino barrettes- or I will once I glue the dominos on that the postman knocked off. I also like the BINGO barrettes- very cute. I think I might put something on them to protect the cardboard letters so I can wear it lots without it getting ooky.

P.S. What are the green earrings from? I don't recognize them.

Glad you liked everything punkrockgirl!  The Davidson brand is a brand of slides.  The 7s are part of a children's foam number set.  Thanks for the fun swap!

Finally here are some pictures of my fabulous game piece goodies.  I finally learned to post pictures (even though my camera is just a webcam and takes crappy pictures...), so here they are:

A cool can I'm using to collect change...

  A purse and candle holder...

me wearing this one today...

And there's a yellow magnet too, but it's holding stuff up on my fridge.  Thanks again!

I posted this in the swap thread but I wanted to put it here just to make sure everyone saw it.

I was just organizing a swap of my own, and found that puddinwuddin (who organized this swap) is on the suspended traders list for flaking on not one, not two, but three different swaps!

Meanwhile, she was supposed to send to yogirly87 for this swap. I for one am going to pm yogirly for her address and send her a little something. It would be great if a few other people could pitch in and send something. (If you're like me, you probably have materials left over from the stuff you made and/or ideas you didn't get to do).

Thanks everyone who made this a super fun swap. Let's make sure yogirly87 gets to feel the same way. Smiley
