If I can't be my own, I'd feel better dead.

I got claimed by the *awesome* sweetyetevil. She and I were actually just in the pendant swap together, but in different groups. So instead of being insanely jealous of her partners, I get to be cool like them. She picked my wish for jewelry and I got THREE awesome fused glass pendants from her. Prepare to drool...


A bee, some beautiful dichroic glass shapes and a metallic plant. They are all perfect! I have been holding out on getting a fused glass pendant and now I know why. Thank you soooo mcuh sweet, you made my day!

I received from texscrapper today. She claimed me twice for travel pillowcases for the kiddies on my list. These are really cool and if they did not have their names on them I would be tempted to keep one for my adventures hahah

full shot-these are huge!

You cannot tell from the pic but this fabric has sparklies in it!


Thanks so much for claiming me Summer, these are so beautiful and perfect for the kids. I am sure their parents will love them too!  Cheesy

Thanks for the nice comments on the pendants. I am hoping to improve my skills with layering and shaping the glass. Glass is not forgiving!! Luckily all the broken experiments can be fused together to make something. Soap dishes are hopefully the next project.

Looks like I have stalled the list...I do not have any idea what I could add at this time. I know if anyone checks my pinterest there is every type of craft on there including knitting/crocheting, embroidery, jewelry, altered art and sewing.
I will keeping thinking of things to add but I think my brain is on hiatus this week!

Those are so cute!

And you haven't stalled the list yet, sweetyetevil.  Give it a couple days!  I've found this swap goes in cycles of a lot of activity, then some downtime while people craft/send/wait for their claimees to receive, then there's more activity.

Will do Kaz!
I sure love the things that have been sent already. My gosh, I already have a huge start on my list and it is only July. My pals think I am nuts but I will be the one laughing and buying myself goodies during black Friday and not going crazy trying to figure out what to get. Not that I won't be buying gifts but these ones are the coolest!!! Sam knows he got something in the swap and I know he was trying to figure out what crafty item he would be getting. Yes, I enjoyed taunting him with a random, "then you will not be using mine". regarding the mug troubleT sent.... Grin now you know where the evil part comes from in my screen name.

I received a great pacakge for round 4 from Rockon - My little bug will LOVE this awesome memory game. I'm reposting it here so no one misses it!



Also, the AMAZING TroubleT sent me some LSU goodness a few weeks ago for Round 5 - Sorry for the delay inposting - I had to wait for the kiddos to be away from me to snap pics!

Coasters, bookmarks, and a bucket Smiley LOVE IT!
