I hope it is OK to ask here, I have been drooling over all these fabulous pics!  Is there a place on craftster where I can offer stuff that I have that I don't need, in order to initiate a personal swap?  Thank you.

Often people who aren't a friend (donators) of craftsters will create a signature (Look a the bottom section of your post or others) and will make a small statement of what they are willing to swap or what they need. If you decide to become a friend of craftster and donate once a year then you can specify that on your profile. It's a feature to add this and favorite project pictures, and bios when you become a friend, among many other cool things. Hope this helped.

Oh, wow, so many cool things in this gallery! That Alien pin-up is just bad-a$$!

jeannette32 and I did another personal swap for ATCs and Inchies, and she sent me such neat stuff! (Again! Smiley)

A witch ATC, and a tree one:

And then my favorite (although I love them all), this pumpkin one:

Then four cute inchies (the skull!):

and a bunch of tiny, sparkly stickers:

Thanks so much Jeannette! Once again, I had fun swapping with you! Smiley

In the end, only kindness matters.

I did two personal swaps recently:  One with Nilmerg.  She sent me an embroidered monogram Hoopla to add to my Hoopla wall.  I love it.  I had pinned one that she made for a hoopla swap, so she made an "r" for me.  It looks great on my hoopla wall.............

We also agreed on 12 inchies, but Nilmerg went WAY over our quota.  She outdid herself.  These are adorable!!!!


Thanks Nilmerg.......... This was a fun, great swap.  Let's swap again soon :-)

I just got a fab package from the uber amazing Birdbones today, and I must suggest that folks hit this chica up for private swaps.  Not only is her work superb, but she is a treasure unto her self.  Be warned this is picture zoftic....

Firstly, the box was covered in this wonderuse paper... And then I opened it..

And it was STUFFED!  Now...do I start with the mains or the suger rush...sugar rush it is Grin

Anyone who knows me knows i have a thing for eyes in general.  And what could be better then GUMMY EYES!!!  They are gloopy and squishy and yummy all at the same time.  But my hands had to have a bit of fun..

Now I can get away with talking to my self Grin

And then here is the rest of the sugar rush.  Notice the one package is empty.  A nice gingery cookie covered in chocolate.  I absorbed them before I even unpacked the rest of the box Grin

She also was kind enough to send along a special treat for my Hub...it was a good thing for him that he was home at the time.....

THEN she sent along these yummys...cept they are eye candy not tummy candy..

And now..I am proud to present *insert here what ever important music/sound you prefer*  STUFFIES!!

Not only did I receive them but I ADOPTED them.  Here is the cover and the info inside.

It says..."     Adopt an Alsace Rabbit, commonly known as the Easter Bunny!

Lepus sylayaticus hedera, Schreckstien 1527

Discovered by the German Alchemist, Dr. Schreckstien in 1527, this subspecies of the common rabbit is a crossing 'between plant and animal.  It's origins are widely disputed, some documents dating back to the 16th century even attributed their existence to the mysterious experiment's of their discovery.

Although widely spread in their native grounds of Alsace (French: Alsace, German: Elsass, the fifth smallest of the 27 regions of France, a highly disputed area between Germany and France) at the time of their discovery, the Alsace Rabbit is now near to extinct.  This might be due to the high popularity of their clear eggs that reveal the colorful creature inside, especially around Ester-time.  Also there is some discussion that the species, consisting of both plant and herbivore animal, has some genetically created dietary difficulties.

IN the age of artificial food and flavors, the Alsace Rabbit is now trying to make a comeback.  Widespread promotion may also lead to increased awareness in children in order to give their eggs the time they need to mature.

The Board for the Alsace Rabbit's Fornication (B.A.R.F.) is hoping for your support in the adopting and preserving the unique species."

I will of course be taking up the call to do every thing I can for these poor misunderstood and vulnerable animals!  So here are a few more photos to entice others to join the cause.

And I might have made a tiny mistake as I released the poor baby from it's clear egg before I was sure it was ready.  Fortunately, the little creature was far enough evolved to be able to with stand a premature birth.

But that is still not the end of this amazing box...

I am the proud recipient of a OneOfAKind BirdBones shirt!!!...um...SSSQQQUUUEEE!!

Check out this fab sleeve..

And this adorible pocket...

It even comes with a wee puffy flower pin...

How cute is that??!!

Thanks you soo much BirdBones!  I hope you like what I sent to you even 1/2 of how I like what you sent me.  But mostly..just thanks sooo much for being such an amazing PMpall!

Suereal, I am so glad you like it! And soooooo relieved the shirt fits! I bought a shirt in the size you requested and used it as a base, but it somehow seemed to shrink in the crafting process.... Hope the sleeves are extralong-enough for you Grin

Wow BirdBones, that shirt is something else! Now I am stalking yyyoooouuuuuu!!! lol!

PS, whenever I quilt or applique on anything it starts shrinking up so I start larger than I think I'm gonna need. Those Teesha Moore squares get so much smaller once they're all decorated, the difference in size is totally surprising!

The bad news: There is no key to happiness.
The good news: It isn't locked.

theeeheee, craftylittlemonkey, go ahead and stalk me Grin! Maybe we get to be on the same swap someday? Wink Suereal gave me the most perfect input to work with and since she helped me get to know The Tick, I figured, the comic fabric I found by chance was just the thing for her...

Thanks for the tip- actually, I usually leave too much seam allowance ('cause I'm sloppy when making stuff for myself..) , so things usually turn out roomier than I'd like. But of course, we can't have that when crafting something for the awesome suereal! Grin Well, I know better now and that's one thing that's really great about swapping- I keep learning things I'd otherwise never have the opportunity to figure out Wink
