I got rlynn's magnets today. Great timing, yesterday my dad was complaining that all my craftster recieved magnets don't hold papers on the fridge. So I showed him how these ones THUNK with the magnetic pull towards the fridge. He approves  Cheesy

Here's my gorgeous necklace from GatorWrangler:

With the note:


It's so pretty and I really like the length of the cord.  GW: it feels like flocked velvet...do you have someone print these for you?

Those green ones look like Kanzashi, only softer - could you tell us how you made them?

I've got all my stuff in the last few days, so here's one great big post:

First, here's my daughter chowing down on some crackers out of one of the (2) snack bags we got from Rlynn!  So handy!  I love the velcro closure (definitely won't pop open in my purse) and the fact that they are not plastic!  Rlynn even stitched around the velco, so it won't come loose, no matter how much you rip the suckers open.



Next we got some gorgeous carnation clips from Avesthel.  I think my daughter and I will both get some use of these. (Her hair is a little thin for clips as of right now).  Love the shade of blue, and the brassy colour clips blend in with my hair, so all you see is cute flowers!



From our very own swap organizer, GatorWrangler, a super-cute curious chipmunk necklace. I've admired this photo from afar for a long time, and it makes a very cute necklace for our little girl.  The kid was very proud to be wearing it.


Sweetyetevil sent an awesome owl pendant & chain.  I love how the glass feels, and the owl is just so cute.  The orange is very summery, and I'll be rockin' it as soon as it gets warmer here.



All the way from Germany, a set of flowers from RubyCopperhead.  The colour scheme was forget-me-not inspired, so I took a picture of them with my forget-me-not tattoo.  I'm planning to spray two of these with shoe protector and stitch them to a pair of sandals.  The third... well it may just get framed and hung in my bedroom... or perhaps I put it on the side of a summer hat.


I love my loot!  This swap went so smoothly.  Many thanks to all who swapped, and to GatorWrangler for steering the ship!

I love those flowers!  They're so gorgeous and would look so adorable on a pair of sandals.  Great idea!

Those green ones look like Kanzashi, only softer - could you tell us how you made them?

The flowers are made from a wool sweater that I felted a little too much. S quick tutorial
1. Cut some circles from a felted wool sweater (the circle diameter will roughly equal the flower diameter)
2. Cut circles in half
3. String some thread on a needle and knot the end
4. Take a 1/2 circle fold it in half, then fold the edges back. That will make one petal.
5. Thread the petal onto the needle and thread.
6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 until the flower is a full as you would like.
7. For the center, I like to use a scrap of fabric rolled and stuffed into the center
8. Stitch from one half of the petal, through the center, to another half of a petal. I continue all the way around until I have stitched through each half of the petal.

The first few might feel tough, but after a few, you will get the hang of it. These make a fun waiting craft (I like to make them while waiting at the dr. office, etc).
