I'm sending positive craftster vibes that I receive positive feedback from the three packages I've sent in my first and only swap - "fingers crossed" - I already have things in mind for this swap.  Oooooo, I hope I get in!  (I'm really not that much of a drama queen, really I'm not.) Wink

My sewing skills are not up to par for this (hopefully someday!), however, I will enjoy looking at the gallery to see how you all interpret the themes!! Have fun! Smiley

I'm working on my first swap right now, so I don't meet the criteria for this one. But I'll probably still lurk you guys, anyway.

No kidding! 

So.  Do we get bonus points if we find something that meets the criteria for two of the categories?  For example, a tiny vintage button that measures 1"? Wink  If so, I'm making it my personal goal to find 5 items that covers all the categories listed Cheesy
