A few notes from the organizer:

~Make sure you cross off items from your list that have been claimed. It makes future claims easier. :)

~All items on your lists need to be Mediums.

~PM me your DC# when you send.




How did we get to the 11th already? Oy.


Title: Re: November 2011 Birthday Swap - Discussion and Gallery
Post by: rubylynns on November 11, 2011 04:17:25 PM
I have a question about crossing things off, both of my gifts are a "surprise" one is a hoop and the other is jewelry.  Should I cross off the jewelry and hoop off my list? 


Title: Re: November 2011 Birthday Swap - Discussion and Gallery
Post by: TroubleT on November 11, 2011 05:29:07 PM
That would be up to you rubylynns.

If one of those items is enough, you can mark them off. However, if more than one is a wonderful thing, then don't. ;)


Title: Re: November 2011 Birthday Swap - Discussion and Gallery
Post by: nannychelle on November 14, 2011 09:41:54 AM

I am getting off early this evening so I will mail it out on the way home. hopefully it will be there by your birthday!. I will post pics of my package and goodies tonight and I will post the tracking number then too!

Ohh I'm so glad you like it! I adore that fabric.  I've had it for a while and when I bought it I thought, this needs to be an apron!

Happy Birthday, have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

I received my package form ceemonster today.  My husband actually ran into the room to see why I screamed hah! I love love love it, beyond perfect!  I will post a pic in the morning I've been shopping for almost 24 hours =)  I love my items and you are totally forgiven for sending a day late lol!!!

Pictures!

Here's both items I love them!


This is a close up of the necklace, straight from my Pinterest. 


Hunger Games! I seriously squealed when I opened this.

Post by: ceemonster on November 26, 2011 11:50:04 AM
Yay!! I'm so glad you like evrey thing, rubylynns! :D The bracelet was fun to make - I'd never done stamping on a bracelet before (have on little discs but not a bracelet) so I was a little worried but I'm pleased with the way it came out. :D And! Now I have extra to make more quote bracelets too for Christmas. And I'd made a similar necklace for a friend's birthday so I knew exactly where to get the supplies. :)

Happy Birthday! I'm so so so happy you're happy with them!

I am happy to say that I finished my package for my parnter.  I mailed my package TODAY!!!.  


Title: Re: November 2011 Birthday Swap - Discussion and Gallery
Post by: nannychelle on December 07, 2011 06:50:18 PM
Received from peachy in the 916 about a week ago. I absolutely love my swap package like  I said before but I just can't get this photo posting right. Peachy wrote and asked if she could post pics but she has not done it yet either so I am going to try to do this again. Once again Peachy thanks for the perfect swap.
Here goes:

The whole package from Peachy - Isn't it great I love my apron and the camping hoop! Could not have asked for more.

Close up of the camping hoops isn't it precious it will be perfect in the camper

Close up of the pattern on the apron.

This was an absolute beautiful swap and I am so very lucky to have you as a partner!


Title: Re: November 2011 Birthday Swap - Discussion and Gallery
Post by: nannychelle on December 07, 2011 07:02:11 PM
Received from green are my tears today and this is absolutely a package to spoil!!! Thanks the whole package is absolutely perfect! I feel you have known me forever. The 1959 embroidery patterns are amazing as are the note cards and cookie cook book which I will certainly be using!!
Ok I am going to try this picture thing again:

The whole shebang  - - Isn't it great

Close up of the vintage patterns

Close up of the fantabulous hat and scarf

The list

This was a fantabulous package and I thank you for it. I could not have had better partners or swap gifts!! Thanks Again to Greenrmytears and peachyinthe916. You are both great swap partners


Title: Re: November 2011 Birthday Swap - Discussion and Gallery
Post by: nannychelle on December 07, 2011 07:08:40 PM
Ok, I feel like I owe an explanation to everyone about what is going on. About 2 weeks ago my son was in an accident and totaled his truck -we spent a couple days running back and forth to the hosp for my grandson, who is ok, it was just inflamation of the spinal chord. So anyway I have given my son my truck to use and I am completely grounded. I am unable to get to the bank, the post office or anything unless my daughter-in-law picks me up from work and takes me or runs the errands for me. So that is why the packages are late. I am grounded and with out wheels.
peachyinthe916 - you should have your package and Greenrmytears your package will be on the way my daughter in law has it and she says she will mail it. Problem is I have to wait for her to do it when it is convenient for her. Again I am sorry, but I must say I have had two great swap partners and I will be taking a break from swapping till I get my truck back. Thanks for your patience and Happy b-lated birthday to both of you!
