I have ideas for a container. It's just picking which and which direction to go with it. *sighs* having to pick between things is not my strong point....Is why I do so many different crafts.....LOL

At any rate, some of the crafted items I am working on. Did a little shopping for stuff and I am sure What to put it all in will come to me in time.

well and wonderment

Hi everyone!  I'm so excited about this swap.  I've been traveling this week but am headed home today and am looking forward to getting started... Now to start pondering a container...  Hmmm!

Hello to my super partner ollieorange!  So fun to have a brand new partner who I haven't swapped with yet, LOVE IT (+1 on the great job partnering, Shana82)!!

I am SUPER excited with what I came up with for the "jar"  I really hope my partner likes it too!  Before the swap started some ideas I had were to use vinyl or etching cream on the jar for decoration.  One time I used a Large Whitmans Candy box and just altered it.  I have found thrift stores to be great places to find unique "jars"

Great tips all around!  I'm thrilled everyone is making plans and liking their partners  Smiley  I have been taken out by a cold the last few days, but my plans for the weekend are to work though my stash and see what I have so I know what to gather from elsewhere Smiley

So happy to get started. Both partner and I love vintage so I've already hit a few thrift stores. They are the best place to find interesting little treasures and containers.

I found so great items today, found my container and have started altering it.

I'm planning to hit some yard sales in the morning, too, since we live in yard sale nirvana....!  Grin

Oh I'm jealous, there's still snow on the ground here so yard sales wont get going for a month or so.  I always feel like such a creep sitting on the ground digging to the very bottom of the little kids toys, but that's where all the good stuff is!
