Are we suppose to pm the people we are sending to for their addresses?

And is it safe to ask people for their preferences yet?

Wow, people are starting to receive and I'm still waiting to hear from someone who is supposed to be sending to me!


Title: Re: Sweat Shoppe Swap 14 Gallery
Post by: psoupdesigns on June 02, 2008 07:39:44 PM
Wow that was quick, I just mailed them on Friday! Glad you like them, Avesthel.


Homerof2, you should be getting a package from me to pretty soon, I sent yours on Friday also.


Title: Re: Sweat Shoppe Swap 14 Gallery
Post by: TheSapphireMoon on June 03, 2008 07:01:22 AM
I received from Homerof2 and Avesthel :)  Love the coasters, and I got just what I wanted, the purple inverse aura!!

You know what?  These coasters would make great little 'treat bags' too!  You could put a little surprise inside for someone, like a gift bag sort-of, maybe for jewelry or something.

I'm going to post photos when I get a few more packages from my other partners....I don't wanna kill the server uploading ONE picture for like 10 posts....or fill up all my picture space :)

I got the pink ones, BTW, so if you're curious you can refer to Homer's post with the colors!

I have received from Avesthel and psoup designs.
Here they are being modeled by my 4 year old who is also modeling her new one seam dress (I bought it pregathered at Wal-Mart for $4.57 for 18 inches)

she thinks she's cute

The cord is adjustable if you need it to be shorter.  Just slide the two knots apart and it will shorten it to a better fit.  :)

Yay!!  I received this awesome tote from Sajona last week.  (Sorry for the late post.)  It is really lovely and really well sewn.  I gave it to my daughter for her Bday, but I am hoping to borrow it from time to time.  (I took an action shot, but it's a bit indecent...I will add one later to show how much it is being loved.)  Thank you!! :)


And I just received from TheSapphireMoon this sweet kids head wreath.  Lana loves it as you can tell from the pic.  Thank you!!  :)

Post by: TheSapphireMoon on June 12, 2008 05:52:49 AM
I got a great anklet from esmecraftin too :)  LOVE the colors and the style, perfect fit without needing to use the extension chain  :-*  I may just get my needlenoses and take off most of it and put back on the piece with the cute little heart bead on the end of the chain.  Will post a photo of another few items when I get them from the others.

I have an extra, if it doesn't come soon I'll resend. How long does it typically take to receive something when shipped from the USA?

Post by: ccswch on June 17, 2008 11:24:13 AM
My felted purse from vecr81 came today. It's so cute! I haven't decided if I'm being selfish and keeping it for myself or letting my daughter have it lol.

And then I received this last week and I swear I posted a picture, but I can't find it so here is the business card holder from ktlady!  Its very nice and will hold a lot of cards.  Thanks so much!  :D

Post by: esmecraftin on June 22, 2008 09:28:28 AM
What pretty things we have in this round! I love the earrings and the little bags, and the delicate flower scarf - everything looks great!
Well it's about time I posted some pics of my goodies :)
The first thing I received was this lovely bag from Homerof2, made from beautiful seaweed fabric;
then cyndiq's pretty bookmark arrived really fast from Australia, with a gorgeous card;
and the cute animal cards from atsuko - I especially like the guinea pig one!




Then lots of things arrived all at once -
the shell circle necklace from ccswch - this is great, it goes with everything;
cute little cupcake charms from Dreambelle - they are so sweet, and really nice colours!
pretty pendant from GatorWrangler - the sparkly swirly effect doesn't show in this photo, it's really nice
and the lovely zip pouch from vecr81 - very useful and lined with nice fabric like the stripes.



I have also got nice green mug cosies from sugaree, which are great but the pics did not come out well - I'll put them in next time.

Thankyou very much, everyone!
I just have 2 more things to come, and I'm already thinking what to make for the next round :D





Title: Re: Sweat Shoppe Swap 14 Gallery
Post by: GatorWrangler on June 22, 2008 05:26:11 PM
The list on the first page of this thread is current.  So if you have received or sent and I haven't marked it yet, please let me know.  And I also need to have zigg13pra reply to my pm, because everything should have been sent by now.

Post by: sajona on June 23, 2008 01:03:23 AM
I think my circle necklace is lost in the post :( If esmecraftin received hers way after mine was sent then I think it must be :(. Mini's pendant broke in the post as well (it is fixable!) so I'm not having a lot of luck this round!


Title: Re: Sweat Shoppe Swap 14 Gallery
Post by: ccswch on June 23, 2008 09:28:07 AM
sajona, I pmed you.

I received my last two items!!! From cyndiq an adorable book thong and handmade card. My oldest son even liked the book thong and he has probably never used a bookmark of any sort in his life lol and the card opened up a whole new crafty world in this house. We’ve not done much scrapbooking, ok I’m really a scrapbooking failure lol, but now my oldest daughter wants to try her hand at it and card making!!!



And from dragonslair I got two crocheted scrunchies for my girls' hair…

The colors are perfect for them too!!!

This has been an awesome swap! I need to start planning what to make for round #15 now!!!


Title: Re: Sweat Shoppe Swap 14 Gallery
Post by: underthemountain on June 23, 2008 05:13:44 PM
Received the last of my goodies today!!  YAY!!


The awesome scarf and matching hat from Guineverefree and a rocking hat from Kidcompassion.

The set will be a gift for my sis and the hat a gift to my DD's best friend's brother.  He's a sweet kid.

Thank you both ladies!!  And thank you to Gatorwrangler for another fantastic round!!  Can't wait for the next one!

Now that craftster decides to work for me, I can post pics!  I know I've been a bit behind but this has been a crazy/stressful month at work, and it was kinda fun opening all these on one day!  So here are pics of what all I've recieved as of today!



Circle necklace, Set of two scrunchies, Resin pendants with multi colored sequins, Loopy Ladders, Swirl Pendant Necklace, stretchy beaded bracelet sets,

So now this is HALF of what I've received, imageshack won't let me upload for some reason.  I've also recieved:

Fun Festival Flower Head Wreaths - TheSapphireMoon
Durango Hats - guineverefree
Old timey postcards set of 10 - atsuko

 Thanks to everyone who has sent to me, this is some awesome stuff from some very talented ladies!
I'll post another pic soon of the rest!

I dread to think where it has been for the last month - probably more well travelled than all of us!

I forgot to post a pic of the card that cynidq made, here it is!  It's a lot more sparkly in person and the ribbon is sheer as well, but I couldn't capture it on the camera.  It is very pretty, thanks!  :)

I received the pendants from mini - I love them!

Now I am 9/10.  Hopefully this week I will be able to take a photo of all my good.  The only thing I am missing is the fabric covered notebook.

Oh no! I hope your notebook has not gone missing, ktlady :(

I hope it turns up - but if not I will send another.

If it was mailed parcel post - 10 days is not all that long.  Let's give it until Monday and I will let you know if I receive by then.

Thanks...

Glad to hear all my items have arrived safely at their new homes :D

Here are my last 3 goodies:



mug cosies from sugaree, hair scrunchies from dragonslair, book thongs from zigg13pra - they are all lovely! Thank you all very much :D
This is such a fun swap to take part in, I wonder what people will come up with for the next round?

I'm waiting for my last 2 items to arrive and then I'll try to gather everything together and take pictures - if I can remember where I put everything!

I totally spaced, thought I had all 10....I thinK??  Didn't I reply in here that I was waiting on 2 more?  Oh, well I don't remember!  LOL!  Here is my FINAL 2 items.


Blue beaded bookmark from cyndiq.  It's so delicate, I LOVE it!  Have it ready in my pen cup in the office when I need to mark a book or magazine.  Isn't that mini katchup bottle THE coolest ever???  I got lucky and found that on another hotel guest's tray outside their door when my girl and I were at a Doubletree last weekend...it was THE best find EVER in the garbage :)


Red seed bead and hemp braided necklace from zigg13pra.  I never would have thought to string seed beads and weave them in with my hemp...I may have to use this neat-o technique in the future on my own hemp projects.

Thanks so much to ALL of you that sent to me, I can't wait to participate in another round!

The rest of my items:


purse from sajona, headband from ktlady, hat from kidcompassion, scrunchie from dragonslair (the other seems to have disappeared with help from my little one), japanese paper pendant from mini.

wreath from theSapphireMoon "decorating" my daughter's tent, she wouldn't allow me to take it down to photograph it.  She really loves it, the day after I received it she wore it to the park.  :)


Thanks ladies, everything is lovely!

Thankyou dragonslair, it was hard to take a good pic of the colour, but the purple is the perfect match for my daughters dance school leotart. so she has claimed them and is delighted and sends her thankyous! thankyou for the stamps for my collection!!  ;D

Pictured here also  are the 2 fabulous navy beanies made for my boys by kidscompassion, she was super kind and sent 2 so there would be no fights, and added the cute badges. Pic of the cute hairscrunchies too.

Right now we still have 5 items out there:

Nikkidear needs to receive from ccswch

vecr81 needs to receive from Homerof2
vecr81 needs to receive from ktlady
vecr81 needs to receive from zigg13pra
vecr81 needs to receive from zigg13pra

-----------------------------------------

ccswch is sending another package to Nikkidear, and vecr81 pmed me June 24th that she had to leave town unexpectedly.  She told me she had limited internet and I have not heard back from her so I assuming she is still out of town.  If the three people: Homerof2, ktlady, and zigg13pra need feedback, let me know. Otherwise we will wait a little longer for vecr81 to return.

I am going to start signups for the next round very soon. :)

I PMed GatorWrangler and Nikkidear the delivery confirmation # for the replacement package, hopefully it will arrive very quickly. I'd hate to think round 15 was held up because of me :(

Post by: GatorWrangler on July 14, 2008 09:33:53 AM
It has been 3 weeks waiting to hear from vecr81 and I think that is long enough so I have given Homerof2, ktlady, and zigg13pra their feedback.  The only package we have left is Nikkidear needs to receive from ccswch but the replacement package should be there within the next few days.  So I am going to start round 15 signups today.  ;D
