I will be headed out of town Tues morning and should be back home Thurs. just after lunch. Don't throw any wild Birthday parties while I'm gone!....if you do, be sure to let me know what happens! ;)

If you have already been approved for this swap and you make a claim, go ahead and get to crafting. I'll update the claims list when I return.

If you want to join the swap, I'll contact you first thing when I return Thursday so you can come play. :)

If something major comes up, you can contact either kaz814 or a swap mod.

Don't you worry yourself at all Miusxl3lindold!  I've been a fair share of Bday swaps and everyone gets claimed. :)

I have lots of good ideas for everyone. :D

I am very seriously considering joining, but will need to wait until the 15th when I can buy the supplies.  Honestly I know who I want to claim and I hope the item(s) don't get claimed first.  I should look through my stash to see if I already have what I need.

This is a great excuse to dig through the stash!  Both of the items I've claimed can be made from my stash. When considering a swap I always consider whether I'm likely to be able to fulfill it from my stash and how much the postage is going to cost.

I hope you decide to join in the fun! I think that the rules said that once you join you have a week to make 1 claim. Perhaps you could join a couple of days before the 15th. I'm eager to see the number of lists grow!

Post by: myklia on April 07, 2011 09:37:15 AM
Technically I have the supply I need, but I received it in another swap and was hoping to use it for myself.  I have something else that *might* work, but I need to see it in natural light to make sure it is the right color.  I also need to wait until the 15th to make sure I can financially do it.  I'm taking my niece to Chicago at the end of the month, so I need enough for that too.  If I can use my stash for some of it, that will help.  We'll see. 


Title: Re: April 2011 Birthday Swap - Gallery and Discussion
Post by: LadyLeitzen on April 07, 2011 12:50:31 PM
eh, an excuse to buy yarn (or fabric) is all i need!

(i'll be 26 on the 28th!)


Title: Re: April 2011 Birthday Swap - Gallery and Discussion
Post by: Lillianpearl on April 07, 2011 01:37:16 PM
I have all the supplies I need, except now that I need them, I swear I can't find them anywhere!!
Hopefully I can find everything by today or I'm going to have to schedule a shopping trip this weekend (oh darn??)


Title: Re: April 2011 Birthday Swap - Gallery and Discussion
Post by: SapphireGypsy on April 07, 2011 03:39:37 PM
I just completed a swap where the only thing I spent was on shipping. :D That always makes me happy. Large portions of what I had in mind when I started reading the lists would be coming from my stash.

Since we're sharing, I'll be 29 on the 25th.


Title: Re: April 2011 Birthday Swap - Gallery and Discussion
Post by: TroubleT on April 07, 2011 03:59:56 PM

i can't wait to join this swap, but i think i might have to wait until around mid month.  i've got to force myself to do my taxes some time before they're due!  :)

Post by: Crafty Butterfly on April 08, 2011 07:37:24 AM
I got my lonely neglected rotary cutter, cutting mat, and omnigrid out this morning. They were pleased to be let out to play for a while. :) I love how easily the rotary cutter slices through layers of fabric. I just hope that I measured and calculated the sizes correctly.

Got my supplies yesterday! I'm completely enthralled  with the project and kinda want to keep it for myself! It feels good to have a hook in my hands again.

Darnit, I just picked up a commission. Maybe I can do the commission and just cut back how many I was going to send to for this. *ponders*

I like having an excuse to sew on my sewing machine. Why don't I find the time to sew myself things on it?

I've got Icebyrd/Julies items made. I just need to iron and package them. I'll mail them either Monday or Tuesday and PM when I do.

onto my second skein! it felt so good to pick it up last night... yesterday i had a write-up, a debate, and annotated bibliography, thesis statement, two 5-page papers, and a workshop i had to do. holy crap i can't believe i survived, and i spent 12 hours sleeping!

happy birthday, y'all's!

Thank you! :D
I'm trying to get my package finished up to Crafty Butterfly and possibly choose someone else after. I'm waiting to see how things go with an infection I had in my stomach first. On my birthday the nurse had to reopen the wound they made like 2 inches deep in my belly button so i'm kinda sore. It has to be packed everyday now which sucks cause I've been free of doing that for like 2 weeks cause it was healing. Here's hoping I don't need surgery for a 4th time though. If I don't I should be able to pick more people to send to. :)

Minusxl3lindfold, what a sucky way to sepdn your birthday. :( I hope you recover well and quickly.  I wish I was even close to having your package ready to go to cheer you up. I'll try to get it done before the send date.  I hope it will be worth the wait.

I'm sorry that I've been quiet this past week. Work has been a bit more challenging than normal. I am managing to keep our claims list up to date each night before exhaustion takes over.

However, do not hesitate to PM me if you need anything or have questions. I should get my Life back this Friday. :)

Gaaah. My package has been done for a few days and sitting in my car but I have not had a chance to get to the post office yet! I'm kinda freaking out. I literally missed it by minutes yesterday, and I work allll day today (no really...I should have left 5 minutes ago not writing this..). Lets hope I can get the package out on time..!!!!

She sent me some fun color yarns: (http://s4.photobucket.com/albums/y106/angalicious/?action=view&current=IMG03672-20110416-2059.jpg) (I've been needing red and yellow, so that's awesome!)
Homemade soap (for reals about to go use some of this now): (http://s4.photobucket.com/albums/y106/angalicious/craftster/?action=view&current=IMG03668-20110416-2057.jpg) (http://s4.photobucket.com/albums/y106/angalicious/craftster/?action=view&current=IMG03669-20110416-2057.jpg) (http://s4.photobucket.com/albums/y106/angalicious/craftster/?action=view&current=IMG03671-20110416-2058.jpg)
They all smell so good!
And pretty buttons: (http://s4.photobucket.com/albums/y106/angalicious/craftster/?action=view&current=IMG03672-20110416-2059.jpg)

I received from CraftyButterfly a while ago but just havent had a chance to upload pictures.  here they are!  and they are AMAZING!



All wrapped up in BEAUTIFUL fabric



All of the goodies except for the embroidery floss and stuffing.  I left those in my car when i was taking pictures

I received a totally awesome package from Minusxl3lindfold today. I feel completely spoiled! She sent soo many wonderful extras as well as 2 awesome crafts!

Here's a group shot of the extras: chocolate, brownie, tea, stickers, clear stamps, seed tape with butterfly and hummingbird seeds, and a cool glass star wrapped in multicolored wire.





Here's a closeup of the seed tape and star wire thingy




Now for more awesomeness a double sided fairy/gnome door made of clay. (which is the item that's from my wish list) This door is really cool and I'm eager to put some rocks around it to make it look really cool. I wonder what my young sons will make of it? Can I convince them that a gnome or fairy has moved into our garden?





And here is a bamboo wind chime with leaf, flower, and butterfly beads and a totally gorgeous fairy pick at the bottom. I really really love this wind chime. (I'll add a better picture soon)





Thanks Katelyn for being such and awesome partner!


Title: Re: April 2011 Birthday Swap - Gallery and Discussion
Post by: bananaleg on April 21, 2011 12:19:22 PM
That fairy/gnome door is awesome.

I received from LillianPearl yesterday! She claimed me for a tote bag, handcarved stamps, and buttons.

It's fused plastic bags, and she added a TARDIS! I loove it!
Also, the lining is the same color as the nail polish i'd put on just a little bit earlier: (http://s4.photobucket.com/albums/y106/angalicious/craftster/?action=view&current=IMG03752-20110420-1643.jpg)


Cupcakes, clouds, rain drops, a banana, and mustaches. So perfect.


An umbrella and rain drop and a banana.

I already used the bag last night when i ran a couple errands. Can't wait to use the rest!

Thank you so much, Aria!!

Post by: Crafty Butterfly on April 21, 2011 01:12:07 PM
Awesome Tardis Bag! Was it painted on after or were blue bags fused in?

The handmade buttons look really cool too. How did you make them?

Awesome Tardis Bag! Was it painted on after or were blue bags fused in?

The handmade buttons look really cool too. How did you make them?

Both! I actually fused blue plastic on, but it was a thicker almost rubbery bag so it made this weird stretchy texture, I painted over it, fused another bag on top and sealed it. Should be entirely waterproof and it's surprisingly strong!

I received today, not one but TWO packages! From NotKnit and sweety28303! Thank you guys sooooo much! I will post pictures in a little bit!!!


Title: Re: April 2011 Birthday Swap - Gallery and Discussion
Post by: Crafty Butterfly on April 22, 2011 07:20:12 PM
I received another great package in the mail today. This package is from NotKnit and she had claimed yarn and trims.

I love love love the TLC Amore yarn. It's sooo soft , fluffy and great to crochet with. I actuallly have a project started that is using the purle yarn as part of it and I'll be happy to add that in. The rest of the yarn I'll have fun dreaming up a new project for. the suede is sooooo soft. There were also some spools of ribbon, a small amount of exotic trim, thonging/cord, and this amazing beaded peacock pin. The beads on the peacock pin are sooo tiny and I can't fathom how they are held together so neatly and tightly with just thread. I love peacocks and I think I'll be showing that pin off on easter sunday. :)

Group shot:


Close up of the pin



Thanks NotKnit for a great package!

Post by: Minusxl3lindfold on April 24, 2011 01:22:49 AM
I've received all my presents and I have some pictures to share! ;D

First up from Crafty Butterfly a beautiful crocheted hooded scarf.. My bear is modeling it for me but I'll see if I can get action shots later. I'm thinking I'll wear it to a sheepsheering festival I'm going to on the 30th. She also made my rat a little crocheted hammock/tube and sent a baggy of fabric scraps for him to nest with. It's perfect for him because as soon as I change his cage he gathers every piece of bedding and stuffs it in his igloo. ::)





Next from Bananaleg two very cool crocheted headbands in my two favorite colors. ;D


And finally from LadyLeitzen an awesome starghan! In my favorite color purple and my moms favorite color green. ;) Modeled on the papasan chair..



Thank you all!! I love everything you girls made for me. <3

Crafty Butterfly, I'm so happy you like everything! That is really neat that you are already using that same yarn in a project. I wanted to include something crafted so I stalked you online a bit, hence the peacock pin. :)

I'll be giving out feedback in just a few. I've been buried in PMs this evening so I'm plowing through them now.

I received a lovely B-day gift from Troublet today.  She made me very happy with two great items.

Here is a group photo (see the card too?):


Here is the t-shirt:

Thank you very much for amazing stuff Troublet! :)

I received a while ago from Troublet but I've been learning my lesson about signing up for swaps when expecting a baby  ;)

Without further ado, straight from my Wist:

He will monitor my cubicle when I go back to work in a month.

I also received a bag of my favorite candy - Cola Gummies - but I ate them. I actually ripped into them in the car after getting the mail. Yummy!

Thank you!
