My partner, lindseycore, hit it and quit it with this swap! I received today and it's AWESOME!

And wow the photo upload options changed, let's see how this works...


So prettily wrapped!



MAGNETS!



Special request: a tissue holder!



Sign for my new bathroom (aka a Not Yours sign to my fiance!)



Cute pincushion! My name is on the other side.



Looks like a business card holder



Yep!



Crochet hook roll woohoo!! I am going to take this to work with me and transfer all my hooks over, I love it!



Check out the applique details!

Thank you SO MUCH lindseycore!! I love everything so much! I got the last of the materials for yours today! (: And this way my first mail at my new address, which makes it extra exciting too!

thank you thank you!  i am most proud of the bird, i love the way it came out.  :)

and the crocheted case could be for whatever you want it for... cell phone, business cards, whatever.  i put your name on upside-down though  :-\ but i think it's ok since you can't look at the front and back at the same time.   :P

Received from Hellobint today.
Look at the lovely loot:

All together now....



The best!! A fab embroidered Bender cushion cover for my DD



A fab pen and pencil set for DD.



A cute (scottish theme?) bookmark



Hair tie for DD.



For me A fab little bag. I love the material.



Close up



Finally the chocolatey Goodness.



Thanks for the fab stuff. DD took her pencil to school today. The chocolates have all gone and we can't wait to get a cushion for the cover.

Post by: angeltreats on April 24, 2008 12:31:31 PM
The personalised chocolate made me laugh!

I really wish I was part of this swap, I have an unusual name and I've never ever been able to buy stuff in shops like pens or pencil cases like my friends had when I was at school.  I'll be looking out for the next round :D


Title: Re: Name swap Gallery 05/08/08 SHIP DATE CHANGED!!!
Post by: babalina58 on April 24, 2008 04:04:45 PM
I think we will do this swap again in July/Aug with a Sept ship date....Fun Fun fun....


Title: Re: Name swap Gallery 05/08/08 SHIP DATE CHANGED!!!
Post by: hellobint on April 25, 2008 01:00:51 PM
i'm glad you liked it all zombiecazz!!  Unfortunately I'm not sure how durable the pencil will be - the pen survived cooking but not the pencil oddly!  Glad you like the Bender embroidery, and i did think the chocolate would probably be put to good use (strangely mine from the chocolate swaps always disappears quickly too!)


Title: Re: Name swap Gallery 05/08/08 SHIP DATE CHANGED!!!
Post by: hahnasay on April 28, 2008 01:31:49 PM

MommyTheMaid-I love the fabric that you chose for the bag, and I like the little change purse.  I sent on Friday, so I hope Stacijane gets her package today---and that everything is in one piece! :)

So am I Karen! I think it's actually going to be easier if I send you two packages... hmm we'll see, one thing is BIG and the rest little :) Did not think postage through...

I love what people have received! So cute. I'm scared of sending mine now...

I was gone all day today but when I got home, my package from dawn0684 had arrived! This is my first few minutes to post, but I had to share.

*Note: Because I have a problem with an online stalker, I have to blur the first name out. My partner knows this and I'm sorry I have to do it but safety first. It in no way is a reflection on her craft skills. I think she did a lovely job and I'm sorry I can't show everything without the blurring. I've tried to minimize it as much as possible so it doesn't take away from the great job she did.

Anyway...Onto the photos!!

Here's everything:


She did an amazing job embroidering a pillow case, made a Scrabble tile magnet (which made me laugh because I also used Scrabble tiles on a project for her!), a little bottle of "Hope" cell phone charm holder, a hand painted blue box and a handsewn monogram "M" tote in my favorite color combination.

Close ups:


She did an AMAZING job on this! Wow. It is so pretty. I don't think the photo does it justice. (And of course, you don't get to see the full script used in my name which is distracting I know but it looks excellent.) The whole thing is vibrant and really, really impressive.


Name tile magnet and bottle with a little "Hope" charm. (She also affixed a label with my name on the bottle.)


Inside the tote are several helpful pockets. I love teal and brown together so that's a nice touch. This is the perfect little "I need to carry a bunch of stuff" tote. (And I'm forever doing just that. I pile things up before I leave the house to make sure I don't forget anything. I'm big on multi-tasking and if I have to run out to do errands, I try to do them all.)

So thank you very much for a great swap, dawn0684!  ;D

phoenixfiredesigns, nice swappsies  ;D I love the embroidered pillowcase and the painted box best  :)

Post by: dawn0684 on May 05, 2008 11:17:41 PM
Sorry if some of the pictures are blurry, as much as I try to hold still taking pictures it doesn't always work. My swap partner (phoenixfiredesigns) did a great job on everything. I was impressed by the creativity with all the crafts, I know I had a hard time coming up with ideas for things to make. I think my favorite thing has to be the scrabble name piece, it's gonna look great on my work desk. Thanks bunches phoenixfiredesigns :)










Title: Re: Name swap Gallery 05/08/08 SHIP DATE CHANGED!!!
Post by: zombiecazz on May 06, 2008 12:15:35 AM
Fab stuff.
I love the embroidered pillow case. Gorgeous.
Both scrabble names are fabby. and I love the jewellery.
Good job.

Post by: Slingmomma on May 08, 2008 07:09:43 PM
wow that is an awesome package!!! I have been just dying to try and make a poppet!! Great job... lucky you babalina58

Now as i promised pictures of all my goodies.... i apologize for the overload of pics but there is so much stuff i couldn't help it!!

So first off i had no idea that this was on its way.... i was finishing up my things for my partner and it was time for my little mans nap, so I went just outside my door (we are in an apartment) to get a safety pin off of my stroller and there was a box waiting for me!!


This is what i found inside of it!! Oh, my bf told me that i had to wait til the baby was down for his nap before opening.... so hard to wait... then even harder to quietly open up newspaper! ;)


The first 2 things i opened up were this awesome switchplate cover and the letter A in one of my favorite colours!!


Then was this awesome box.... filled with all these goodies!!

Altogether there is: bookmarks, keychains, erasers, an iron-on A, zipper pull, and lots of magnets


Then there was this little box, in my second favorite colour!!!

Filled with pencils and erasers!!


My beautiful handmade card!!


And a giant group shot of it all!!

What a package eh!! I absolutely love everything!! Its all so bright and colourful!! It has given me so many ideas for future swaps!!! Thanks again hahnasay you totally rock as a partner!!!

 My Poppet is the new love in my life..Her name is Agnes and she will always be a treasure to me...Funny stuff I must say we hunkered down in the bathroom last night as the storms came over head and they told us to take cover and there was circulation...I had my poppet in the bathroom with me and my beautiful bag but my hubby thinks we are all like little kids again....I took my poppet to be safe if a tornado drooped down on us LOL...Thinking about it I could have got my family pics too but no I got the laptop and my poppet....HEHEHE

USPS says my partner received today but it must have been after she was on here last. She hasn't said anything yet. That makes me nervous.... like she has to come up with a bunch of lies to say she liked it. Swap anxiety just never goes away!!

Post by: kirstilynne on May 12, 2008 09:04:25 AM
well. im going to post some pictures of what I had sent along to perriell (I can't spell... i could have gone back to make sure i spelled it right but im sure everyone gets the idea! haha.)

anyhoo here goes.
I was crafting for her godson Xander. I have not crafted for a child before (other than struggling with a quilt for my future brother in law's new baby) so here is what i came up with:

my medium (well large really) item was this train coat hanger. This is not the same one but the same colors and everything becuase before i wrapped it up and sent it off i forgot to photograph it. my dad and i made this so i did cheat a bit, but i painted it and personalized it and helped cut and glue.



this one is a bit hard to see becuase foolishly i also didnt take pictures before i repackaged it. I decoupaged a billion sheets of tissue paper that i cut into squares and strips and glued them to a piggy bank. then did the little fellas name on the side.



same idea with a frame that i later put the meaning of Xander in.


a photo album for the little guys mom.


a pillow.



and a tag blanket



I also included some things for my partner, she was so nice to get the stuff made for her godson I just had to throw in a bunch of stuff. a chocolate bar shaped like a P. A ring with a P on it. a little pearl colored box with her name on it. a pearl adorned P. some P post it notes. and some small P note cards.

Glad she enjoyed it.

Kristen~ I'm so glad you liked everything!!! The shrinky dinks weren't supposed to come out like that but I threw them in your package anyway thinking maybe you could use them for something. It was my first time using that stuff. My favorite thing to make was actually your "lucky penny" necklace. I spent over an hour cleaning that one penny so it was shiny and it took me forever to find one with "1987" on it. Did you notice? Was I right? (birth year) I was sooooo disappointed when, days later, I pop it out of the mold and there lies a giant air bubble! I decided to send it to you anyway, because I figured you could tell people that Abe Lincoln was blowing a bubble to you! (it lines up with his mouth perfectly)

That last picture..... uh.. yeah... I meant to send that.... sure...  ;D

Congratulations babalina!  hope mum and baby are doing well...

So everyone, prepare to be GREEN with envy!!  My fabulous trawl of goodies is below ...



So semi group shot - there was so much stuff I couldn't fit it all in one picture!  Here we have Hedgehog pin cushion embroidered with Katherine, Katherine bookmark, Katherine keyring, Katherine 'treasures' box (better picture later!), atlanta georgia postcard and keyring (cos I like knowing about the place that things have come from!)



hedgy door hanger with traditional southern recipes, so I can make proper southern fried chicken!



Cute russian dolls, I didn't take a picture of the back but the largest one has Katherine beaded on the back...  So cute and from my wist!



My favourite piece - Katherine decoupage box - and when you open it ....



buttons and eyes!  its fab!  Unfortunately the pink wrapping paper loved it too (the joys of decoupage - sticky everything!!) so i need to carefully peel away some more wrapping paper later, but you can see the effect.



And my next favourite thing - the treasures box.

Thanks Panda, I really love it all - such fab goodies, i feel totally spoilt!   ;D  a perfect post birthday prezzy!

PS - i should also point out that everyone at work was laughing at me for being totally overexcited about my great stash!  and then i showed them and they understood ...   ;)

oh my gosh you guys i feel like such a jerk.  i received over a week ago from cookiemaker but i was out of town for a few days, and have been ridiculously busy since then (working over time, seeing a lot of doctors)... so i haven't had enough free time to get on and post pictures.  i feel so bad.  but at last, here they are.  i love it all.

memo holder thingies.  i LOVE the colors.  these will brighten up my cubicle nicely.  one of the buttons fell off in shipping but that's easily fixable.


very cool sponge painted frame with my name in it.  again, love the colors.  and a black pouch too.  please excuse my cat's paw.  he likes packages too.  :)


crochet hook roll, and it came with furry yarn!  sorry it's blurry.


outside of the roll, with my name, obviously.  i LOVVVVE the big button!


cupcake pincushion.  the funny thing is, i saw these on my partner's blog and totally fell in love with them.  i never even told her that!  i love the blue, and forgot to take a pic of the bottom, but it's brown of course.  it's got my name hanging out of it too, hehe.  (the s is at a weird angle, sorry!)


awesome zipper pouch, i adore this circle-y fabric.  and magnets which my partner said she didn't like but i like them!


the inside of the above pouch.  i love this fabric too.  please excuse my creepy looking fingers, haha.


and last but not least... these don't have my name on them but my partner saw them on my wist and made them for me!  i looooove them.  they are fabric covered wall hanging things.  AND she included velcro, which is perfect, because my cubicle walls are fuzzy so they hold velcro things.  i think i'll be taking these to work too.


cookiemaker, again, i publicly apologize for being so slow with this... but i really do love everything!  what a fun swap.  thank you thank you!!   ;D

I'm going to post a couple of the pics of things I sent to Craftykatt. Hopefully Craftykatt will be able to supply the rest  ;D I was really pleased with how the messenger bag came out but only have in progress pics of it.

First off, anyone who got a partner named Champagne would have to embellish a glass wouldn't they?! I didn't want to do a flute so I did a half pint mug *lol*  :)


handbag organiser, pre-embellsihment I'm afraid.

needle roll and needles. My original thought was to make a pair of extreme knitting needles  ::) then realised it would cost a packet to ship those alone never mind the other things  ;)

painted glass frame with glass beads. Never used glass paints before, it would have gone better without the cat helping  ::) The mug has her name on the handle too

fabric covered A4 ring binder with a front pocket for pens and a notebook, I ought to make myself one for my patterns! I had to make this so I knew how big to make the bag *lol* Champagnes bag criteria was "big enough to fit a A4 binder"  ;D

I am in love with the binder!  I just decopauged one for a swap, but I never even thought of a fabric covered one.  What a creative idea.  I might have to borrow it :D

Alas the camera lead has not turned up. My friend said she'll lend me hers though, yay!

The bag is the most amazing thing! Really, my family were in awe when they saw it. It has so many pockets and it's super perfect! Seriously, I had an awesome partner!

Karan I'm so sorry for the delay of pictures. Oh this means I have to stop using the things to take pictures again! My mug is at the office, the photo frame on the wall and the bag and bag organizer are in use! Hehe, gifts well loved and used!

Alas the camera lead has not turned up. My friend said she'll lend me hers though, yay!

The bag is the most amazing thing! Really, my family were in awe when they saw it. It has so many pockets and it's super perfect! Seriously, I had an awesome partner!

Karan I'm so sorry for the delay of pictures. Oh this means I have to stop using the things to take pictures again! My mug is at the office, the photo frame on the wall and the bag and bag organizer are in use! Hehe, gifts well loved and used!


Don't fret about the pics, if you can get one of the bag I'd br grateful as I was hoping to steal it for my blog *lol* I only have unfinished pics  ;D I thrilled that you like it and are using it. I had to make it up as I went along so wasn't sure it would turn out like I wanted it to.

So, Zombiecazz did an awesome job on everything in my name swap package!  She crafted for myself and my two sons.  We got the package in 6 days, which I thought was amazing.

Here is a partial group shot-a crocheted fairy with my name on a wing, a crocheted cupcake, that opens up to store treasures, a crocheted owl that had a scarf inside, and a make up bag, with a cupcake and my name in wingdings!

Here in an action shot of all the delicious Scottsh goodies Zombiecazz included.

Zombiecazz made my son an art notebook, with his name and cross bones sewn on the outside.  There were also colored pencils for him to use-he loved this!

An action shot of me and the scarf!

And a Transformer blanket for my youngest son.  His older brother is coincidentally reading him Sam and the Firefly-Sammy is sewn onto the crocheted blanket.  She also sent us a Scottish cookbook, but I forgot to include it in the photos.
This was a great swap-I am so pleased with all our treasures.  Zombiecazz really outdid herself-Thank you , Thank you!! ;D

I'm glad you like everything, Panda.  I apologize to everyone for not being very "present" for this swap and especially to Panda for the late delivery of her package.  Life just got a bit overwhelming for a while and I had committed myself to far too many things at once.  That being said,  here are the long overdue pictures of the wonderful things I received from my swap partner, fairybug22!


All of the goodies together!  I love my pillow and use it every night while watching TV - and the barrel stave craft room sign hangs right over the door to my craft room.  The barrel stave came from the winery where her BF is the sparkling wine maker - VERY cool!!


The (obviously) delicious home made pear spice jam


The polymer clay earrings and an ornament with my name on it



The very cool bookmark currently being put to good use in my newest book!

There was also a great polymer clay magnet with my name that I am sad to say fell off my fridge and broke before I got a photo taken. :(


Thank you for everyting - I love it all!!

~Staci

I finally got a chance to post pictures of my package!:) It is from my lovely angel sweetiepickles and she did a lovely job using my name. I recieved friday but i was away, got back tuesday and posted today. so it isnt too bad.
My dad said even the box looks creative and fun! Anyhoo here is my loot! minus the box because immediately boxes get confiscated by the felines. they looooovvvveeee boxes.


everything all together.


first there was a lovely sequined box with my name painted on it in my fav color!




close up of the post cards made of my pictures from my flickr of my cats! :) which is a big part of me. all fifteen of them.


love that eraser stamp. havent used it yet but will soon. im making a wood block for the back of it so i can stamp easier.


a nifty project bag! :) this will be for my "im learning to knit" stuff.

just for fun since all my posts from swaps have a cat in them. this is my cat posing like he is on the post card.


awesome stuff! Thanks so much! Thanks Bab for putting the whole swap together!

Glad you finally got some goodies. Some lovely stuff, but I have to admit the cat cards are my fav. I love the pics combined with the fab patterns. Really nice.
