thanks for posting it norah!  i am always afraid to post my projects when i "borrow" ideas from other people (especially when they are selling them)... but i have seen a few of these around and i don't think it's just one single person's idea.  so i guess it's probably ok.  i'm glad everyone likes it!!  it was so much fun to make.

i thought of that too, but then i think about the fact that we do "craft my wist" swaps, which is pretty much a swap full of "borrowed" ideas.  and all the crafts on here that use copyrighted characters, etc.  i think as long as you're not posting about selling them we're okay.  (right?) Smiley

i promise she made this for me out of the goodness of her heart, not for money.  Cheesy

ScotSkipper402 and I had a little anti-valentines swap. Here's the awesome package she sent:

Patterns, a Little Corset workbook, tea, poppy seeds, 2 pairs of earrings and an awesome treasure necklace.

Here's a closeup:


Thanks so much, ScotSkipper402!

AlwaysInspired contacted me requesting a wallet and offered to make me the needle book I have long been coveting...even though I sew, I just didn't feel inspired to make my own and I knew someone out there would be able to come up with something super creative and really perfect...and that someone was AlwaysInspired! Without further ado:


Note the AWESOME sewing themed embroidery. I really love that it's a pincushion...and man does it look good!


Several pages for needles.


Pockets for my seam ripper and small scissors.

She also made a pin cushion out of the most awesome fabric EVER and I'm now on the hunt for it:

You can't quite tell...but she took the images from the fabric and made shrinky dink pins out of them! They're super cute!

Last, but not least, a bracelet and earrings set:


Thanks so much for being such an awesome partner, Deana!!

I would highly recommend Deana for a personal swap anytime...she puts a lot of thought and effort into her stuff!! Smiley

Golly. I saw the necklace, thought "THAT's bizzare." and then realized -- that's mine! "treasure necklace" is very kind. It all started with a some beading hemp and a little blackNwhite heart. But things happen Roll Eyes

I did a personal swap with slingmomma. She's in Canada, and I've been wanting to try Smarties, so she sent me some, along with a couple of handcrafted items.

Here's the package


Everything revealed


The handcrafted items.  She made me two zipper poouches with velcro straps to hang on my guitar for storage of my pitch pipe, capo and guitar picks.


And the Smarties

Thanks, slingmomma

I am so glad that you liked the Smarties and that the little pouch worked!! I still wish I could have found the flavoured smarties!

Thanks for swapping, and hopefully my little goodies will be here soon!

I did a personal swap with AbbyRose and look at the lovely goodies she sent me! We agreed that I would receive 3 cloth pads, but she ended up sending so many more! I love the fabric colors and patterns and it's SO soft. I can't wait until my period comes around again so I can try them out!













Honestly, they are SO beautiful and so well made. Everything is perfect. I can't believe how spoiled I got and I've got severe swap anxiety now! I really hope that what I sent was enough...Aren't the pads pretty? They feel so soft and comfy too. I wish I didn't have to wait 2.5 more weeks for my period!
