Happy New Year!

:)  :D  ;D This swap gallery is intended as a way to recognize all the wonderful personal swaps that are done in this community!   ;D  :D  :)

Personal swaps are not encouraged or supported by Craftster.  This is only a thread to post pictures from your personal experiences.  Personal swaps are not and cannot be tracked in Swap Feedback on profiles and should not be linked to Craftster's Organized Swaps in any way.

Please note that this gallery is meant for those who have had a good experience with their personal swaps!  This is not the place to air your grievances about being "flaked" on...please keep it positive and give love to those awesome personal swappers! ;)

Each month a new gallery will be started.  If you have received from a personal/private swap, within the month, feel free to post pictures here!   ;D

Hello! I just did something like a personal swap with Crnaofca, actually i randomly found a wist of hers (Book: "Knit 1, Kill 2" by Maggie Sefton) when i was putting together my wist page, asked her if she would like it (i had just finished reading it about a week earlier), and we exchanged suprise packages (well, except for the book, haha)! She was extremely nice and we communicated alot, and even though she is over seas and i am not, the packages only took 3 weeks surface mail! Huzzah!!

I don't have a picture of what i sent her, because until today, i didn't realize there was a gallery for personal swaps  :-[, but i'll tell you: The book, "Knit One, Kill Two" by Maggie Sefton, Holiday 2006 Vogue Knitting Magazine (they dont have it where she lives), and three balls of Patons Lacette in Black- Oh, and a super cute penguin Christmas card!

She sent me this beautiful hat that she knitted (its more of a celery green than it shows, my camera's funny with color), 2 tiny bundles of festive ribbon, lovely variegated rainbow yarn, fuzzy silver boucle, and two emerald green sock wool balls (again, the color- they are green not black, haha!) I love it! i needed sock yarn badly!

She also sent somebeautiful earrings, the chartreuse one's are my favorite, and two incredibley adorable pins that she said are about 20-30 years old! Awesome!! I am absolutley in love with the bear with the child in his basket  ;D

Thank you Crnaofca!! You're the greatest!!

Alteredmommy and I did a private swap last month, but I finally got a new camera and the pictures are much better, so posted here.

I sent a handwoven scarf from my etsy, and she sent me an ATC beginner's kit.



And there's no way I can show you how much stuff she threw in but here's an overview of the goodness:


and she asked me to post a picture of the card she made for me, but I'm putting that in the January ATC gallery. Will modify the post here to put a link:

ATC is called "love hurts"

Thank you so much Alteredmommy! I have a thousand ideas and I love ATCing!

Toque and I decided to do a personal swap with handmade purses/bags.  Neither of us have participated in a swap, and I didn't know about this thread!  So, without further ado,

Look what I received in the mail today!  This Fabulous purse by toque!!!!!  I requested one of her animal applique bags with a polar bear (my favorite animal!)  She did a fantastic job on the bag and I just can't say enough how much I love it!

The inside is a yummy blue and black fabric and the outside is a soft black plaid material.  So cute!

It is going out with me in the snow today!!!!!

Javede was making me some wristwarmers in our Ongoing Offer What you have swap and while talking we decided to do a small personal swap for some fabrics.  Of course being the awesome person that she is she sent a few other surprises:

Feast your eyes on the fabric.  The one in the back is a vintage pillow case.  I absolutely love this!!  And the rest of the cute fabrics.  Then she spolied me with lovely extras: trims, awesome buttons (I esp love the little white elephants), beads (turquiose and the most awesome glass cat beads in green--my daughter's favorite color), and tons of findings.  And the sweetest gift of all a butterfly necklace and bracelet set for my daughter.


See how happy my little monkey is.  Lana wore this all evening thru dinner and is still wearing it. 


Thank you Javede!!  We love it all!

I swapped with Ambraqi- my first personal swap!

She knit the Rowan “Bubbles” bag for me, which is embroidered and felted and completely beautiful! I’ve been lusting after ever since I laid eyes on it a year ago, and she even lengthened the strap a little so I can wear it as a messenger bag.


And then surprised me by making this cabled swimcap hat from my wists! It’s a lovely warm violet color. All of these wonderful knitted things make Minnesota winters a lot nicer.

The pattern for the hat can be found here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=73290.0 (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=73290.0)

Thanks so much Ambraqi! You’ve been a fantastic swap partner!

Javastain and I did a private swap, a spin-off of the sweat shoppe swap.

I made snowflake names embroidered on fleece for her. You can see the post here:

https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=136264.msg1448598#msg1448598 (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=136264.msg1448598#msg1448598)

I received two Ice Cream cozies that she crocheted:



The star was a bonus, I'm going to put it on a satin cord.

Here is another view:


I love them both! They fit perfectly! Thanks javastain!

Post by: catpants on January 20, 2007 02:01:28 PM
omg, ice cream cozies are the best. idea. ever!!

well, unless you're trying to cut back on your ice cream consumption, because the prospect of not-freezing hands would just encourage me to eat more ;)

Post by: javastain on January 20, 2007 03:16:59 PM
I forgot to tell you I named them... one is raspberry oranger sherbet (or Sherb for short) and the other is Chocolattachoco (or 'Chaco' for short) :) SO glad you liked them!! Thanks for posting the link to the sweat shop thread, I forgot about this thread!!! :)

I have never seen an ice cream cozie before. I am smitten! Those things rock the casbah! Now I will have to learn how to knit so that I can make myself one, not that I eat ice cream, heaven forfend. ;)

She actually sent three burp cloths but one was already in the laundry when I took this picture.


I received my wonderful package yesterday.  A blue and white star blanket and a black and grey striped hat for the baby.  I will post pics as sson as I get the blanket away from the baby, and the hat fit perfectly and he seems to like it on his little head.

I suppose this page is for giving accolades to Craftydeb! I did a swap with her and this is what I received this morning:

Two totoro's, a flannel kitty, and a wonderful machine embroidered wristlet.

Here you see O-Totoro greeing the new comers Chu- and Chibi-totoro.

..and here you see my cat investigating the newest feline in the family...

...and then claiming him as his own.

Yesterday I had a really rough day and this morning I just came over to check out the gallery and here is a page of me just about!  I am almost in tears!

I haven't gotten Twiztid's in the mail yet - although it should be here any day now - dang 100 year old postal worker taking my package by foot across the country!

I did get my awesome DragonsMuse package in on Saturday - and am going to be posting up pics today.
That picture of your kitty with lumberjack kitty (she is up in the dolls and playthings.  I risked it and posted up pics after I made it - same with the wristlet... I normally hold off but DM hadn't been online much and I didn't think she would stalk me to see what she was getting!) Just awwww!  Put her in a bag with a little catnip and giver her a shake and your kitty will just be mad over lumberjack kitty! - I have been calling her lumberjack kitty cause she is made with plaid flannel... and it is sooo soft too!

I've been wisted?  whoo hooo!

I loved that wristlet - here is a link to my post on it...
skull wristlet (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=146810.msg1447426#msg1447426)
I will have to find the one to lumberjack kitty later! She was my first sewn pattern I made on my own so I am really proud of her.  It looks like she is going to get a lot of love! I can't wait to show Collin the picture of kitty snuggling kitty!

I did a personal swap with katxena - she sent me an envelope stuffed with Joss paper and other aisan ephemera after I admired her ATC's using the stuff  ;)
I love it and can't wait to experiment with it! Thank you Katxena - your ATC's are on their way to you!!

ooh you were so right Deb that wristlet is cool and perfect for clubbing! Love the lil animals as well...do you ever rest?! ;)


I never rest - I have fiber instead of blood running through me!  That wristet is one of my favorites of all so far!  Must... find.... excuses... to ... make.... more...
I jsut made 3 more - two for the OWS18 and one for a friend of mine that is down in the dumps right now.  I hope it will brighten her day when she gets it!

Here is what I got in my package from Dragonsmuse. I am still in awe of this package - way above and beyond and I love it all!

Collin wore his shirt to school today by the way!
Three shirts - all Spidey and one for each of the men in the house!


That one is David's.

This one is Logan's.. he is wearing it but I wanted to get a close up of the upside down webslinger himself!




Stickers which Collin has completely claimed and probably won't share with Logan... and a kit to get me started making my own shirts!


and can you believe this?  Rockem Sockem Robot rings that work!!



This was a fun swap for me!  Both sending and receiving!  Thank you so much Dragonsmuse for a great package that will be enjoyed by everyone here!

TreeTree and I did a swap for pillow covers and she already posted the cover I made her. Now, I get to show off the beautiful cover she knitted for me.



I love all the flowers she added to it and it goes so well with my new red couch. Thank you soooo much!!!!

Aww... I'm so glad you and the boys like everything and that it all seems to fit. Hooray!

'doh! And I though I could prevent that by sending two of each. Silly me. :P

I have to say a big diddo to you Deb. I love everything you sent. And I have no doubt that my friends will be quite jealous of my wristlet at the pub on Friday. (i'm not quite the club type, two left feet and all.) And Twinkie still loves lumberjack kitty.  I've dubbed him Flapjack myself.

atsuko and I did a personal swap for some fabric and in my case button pins. I just received her package and it's fabulous!
Have a look:

The fabrics are sooooooooo upper cute! My mum has already claimed the one on the far left for some kind of bag.
I also asked for some cute and geeky buttons-I study computer science. The buttons are perfect! One of the buttons even has a picture that's also in one of my textbooks! That one will go on my campus bag!!!

Thank you very much atsuko! Swapping with you has been a lot of fun  :D

Vanillaxlight sent me a super surprise package!! ;D ;D ;D  I've been going through a really rough time in life right now and it was like a big bundle of handcrafted cheer in a box.  I can't thank her enough...

I lost my favorite scarf the very first night I wore it and she made me one to replace it!
Same colors & everything!


I had a rainbow scarf on my Wists and she made it...but she crocheted it in some whacky crazy Tunisian way, so it looks knit.
CRAZY, I tell you!
I had this on there as a "Yeah, I'll add this, but it's a big old hope 'cause I don't think anyone will ever make it for me" item! :D
http://pixelgirlshop.com/item.php?item_id=842


A beautiful crocheted bracelet in two sizes of red, glass beads and two sizes of black, crystals.
I love it down to the pretty clasp!



MAGAZINE beads with a soda pop top clasp!
This is so funky cute it hurts.



A ton of goodies!
Stitch & Bitch, a turtle who's gonna grow super big for me, shrinky dink magnets and a tin with even more in it!, a pack of beautiful birdie buttons & a cookie cutter!


ANNDDDdd... a shrug by Happy Hooker.  She thought it might be too small, but it's not at all - it's perfect & SO cute!  I love that it's in white 'cause it'll match so many tops.

Also, nice rain hat. I think I need a rain hat (perhaps in bright purple vinyl.. hm..)

Hi Javede!

I'm so glad that you liked the buttons and the fabrics.  It was alot of fun swapping with you.  You're such a sweet person.  I have been loving my armwarmers, fabrics, and notions.  And Lana is still adoring her butterfly necklace and bracelet.

Atsuko - was that some of the fabric from Hawaii you were teasing me with?  Very pretty!  I am working on a monkey for Caron now and will be looking for some car projects pretty soon....
might feel a few more monkeys coming on.... I will let you know when I have a few piled up - might be a month or two as I have been getting pulled in different crafty directions - and was just asked to produce some dog coats for Buster's groomer!  whooo hooo!  I might become the small dog clothier of Huntsville if I can pull it off!

Very sharp fabric!  I still look at the picture of Lana snuggling up with her monk.  It brightens my day whenever I see it - whereever you have that picture hosted at I hope you don't take it off!

Hehehe, well I have lots of cool Hawaiian fabric and I may have even more since I am planning to go back home sometime this year!
I am just dying to make another goddess style necklace so please let me know if you're up for that as well.  :)  Monkeys rule!! 
I really should post the troop you've made me.  Hmm...

And don't worry I don't intend on taking down that pic of Lana with your monkey.  She still loves them to bits, esp the green one, that's her baby!

Congrats on your new line of doggy clothes.  I'm sure they will be a hit!!

Stifflersmom and I did a personal swap which arrives just before Christmas, so I think we've both been distracted from posting.  It was great!  I sent her some knitted mittens.  The first picture shows the color, the second shows the cabling:



And she sent me a great swap journal (just what I needed) with a bunch of other goodies (a gardening journal, a cute pendant, and some awesome anatomy stickers):

Atsuko and I did a private swap, and Atsuko spoiled me rotten! Such a great package!

Here's a little bit of what she sent:

first this card sets the stage:

I'm a night owl and my husband is a morning lark.

He says:


I say:


Here's both:


Plus I asked for a butterfly necklace and atsuko offered to make me a petal necklace.


Then she totally surprised me by adding a matching bracelet.


And the most gorgeous triple strand necklace:


My mom loves giraffes, so I asked her for her famous beaded giraffes:

Atsuko asked if I wanted two for my mom, and she made them into pins. She totally surprised me by putting it in this fabulous box:


Then she added a felt giraffe! She is the queen of felt stuffies!
here's a link, because this is already picture heavy:

Finally, she gave me a most wonderful ATC kit! I can use it to make greeting cards, too.

Hi sewknitter!

I'm so glad you liked everything.  It was alot of fun crafting for you. I couldn't resist making you a morning lark to complete your owl.  You and your hubby sound so cute (and so much like me and mine...hehehe!).  I hope you and your moms will enjoy the jewelry.
Have fun with your ATC kit.  Can't wait to see what you make from it!!

Take care!

I did a personal swap with stifflersmom (wow - she's certainly been busy this year already! *lol*) I sent her some pantas and she sent me this amazing bundle of goodies; a hand-made journal with gorgeous paper in and a cluck ATC  :D, some chocholate martini lipbalm (YUM) a nest brooch, and some resin pendants  :D

Thank you Stifflersmom - I'm psyching myself to make a mark in that lovely journal already - even the BF commented on it, that it had "nice" paper in, and he doesn't usually notice that sort of thing! *lol*

I just love those pics of Lana. I can't get enough of looking at them. Back when we did that swap I didn't even know about this gallery for personal swapping! 
Hey, where's the black and grey monkey? That one was my favorite so far!

Here's a pic of the embroidery Atsuko did for my boys - they love those shirts!  Collin has been eyeing it already to wear but it is just a weeeee bit cold to wear right now!


I can't find the pic of Vicki and I together wearing our butterfly necklaces - I will have to search though..

Love it!!  Your sons are always so cute.  I love seeing all the pics of them.  Yay!  Yes, please do post that pic of you and Vicki with your necklaces.  I also missed it when you posted the smoking chain one that you wore out to dinner with your hubby.

I need to take an updated photo of the whole monkey gang.  I will soon and I'll add it to my old post.  Don't worry all the monks are safe and accounted for.

TTYL!

Isn't it though? He loves that shirt soooo much. Most people don't know what it is and he tells them if they ask!  I should really get him a real trilobite that he can have and to hold and to love.  They are pretty common to come by.  After it warms up there is a place in Kentucky that isn't too far from us (as in a good weekend trip) that has a dinosaur outside nature walk and I think they let the kids dig to find a treasure like that.  He would think he was all that and a bag of chips if he found something cool like that!

Do you live anywhere near Maysville?  There are a couple of really easily accesible road cuts that are just jammed packed with invertebrates.  We would go there for paleontology field trips, and I took kids a couple of times too.  (Though I'm not sure if they were more thrilled with the fossils or that I let them pee outside like they were real field geologists...)

You should check out the Dry Dredgers, they are primarily on the cincinnati side by perhaps nearby...  They are very kid friendly!

Hi Tanza and friends!

This is a long overdue posting of the wonderful shirts that Tanza made for my daughter.  Thanks!!!!!  Yes, Tanza made me not 1, but 2 wonderful embroidered shirts in custom colors.  :)

I messed up and sent her package surface so poor Tanza still hasn't received my items and it's been almost 2 months. *sigh*  Anyhow I thought it was time that I shared the wonderful shirts she made for me.  I failed to get any action shots.  My Lana is being a rascal and running from me whenever I try to get the shirt on her.  Ack.

overall shot:


closeup of the bunny:


closeup of the kitty:


Thanks again Tanza!  We love them!!  (I secretly wish these were in my size; I'm a bad mommy  ;).) These are going to be perfect for summer. 
I'll be sure to get some action shots then!

Take care!

Hi all!

MarjorieCrochets generously agreed to do a swap with me for some of her lovely dragons.  My Lana is a big fan of Dragontales so having Cuddles and Sam join our family was a complete thrill to her.  And Marjorie was super kind and included a little guy for me.  Unfortunately, Lana decided that this was the dragons' baby.  ;)

Here's the newcomers getting settled in.  Hi!  *waves to Marjorie*


And here's Lana loving her new babies.  Sorry about the stained shirt she couldn't wait (and neither could I!). She had spaghetti for lunch and painted afterwards.  Ack!

Thank you Marjorie!  You are one fantastic swapper. 

Stay tuned....Marjorie is making me her newest creation!! 

Take care!

atsuko and I did a swap, I sent her some of my crocheted toys, and she sent me this absolutely gorgeous, beautiful butterfly necklace!!!! I'm so excited, it's so lovely and elegant! My pictures just don't do it justice, but I had to share my treasure with you anyways!



I tried to get a close-up, but it didn't turn out well at all!



Thank you, atsuko!!

I have this haunting feeling that I didn't post up pics of the package that TwiztidBlood sent me.  I am not seeing it so I am going to post up again - or for the first time ;)

She knitted Collin a nifty robot
and sent some fabric - the bit of courd is going to be the top of a new dogbed for Buster - I am planning on getting that done this weekend!
I will post up pics when I am done with it!


I am so sorry it has taken me so long to get uploaded. I hope you forgive me!

Dragonslair and I did a baby swap and she sent me a great pocket changer and some burp cloths.  They have come in very handy!


She actually sent three burp cloths but one was already in the laundry when I took this picture.


I received my wonderful package yesterday.  A blue and white star blanket and a black and grey striped hat for the baby.  I will post pics as sson as I get the blanket away from the baby, and the hat fit perfectly and he seems to like it on his little head.

here are the pics of dev and his blanket he received




Thanks sanditerese !!
