I received an awesome package from SMLounsbury!


Adorable pillowcase dress


Flower headband. I have an obsession with headbands :)


Cute hat with flower. I love the color combination!


My favorite item. It was inspired by my pinterest and I already wore it.  :D

Thanks so much, I LOVE everything!!!  ;D


Title: Re: FOC Second Chance Wishlist Rd 3 **Gallery**
Post by: SMLounsbury on October 14, 2012 03:42:54 PM
I swear, I'm making myself one of those rolled rose headbands.  It turned out TOO cute!  I think the fabric under the flowers was leftover from a christening gown I made for a customer and I didn't have the heart to donate it or throw it away.  Now I'm glad I saved it!  :) 


Title: Re: FOC Second Chance Wishlist Rd 3 **Gallery**
Post by: Bobbysgirl on October 15, 2012 08:57:43 AM
Those are all lovely! I really like the hat, I can never get mine to turn out so nicely shaped. One of my packages is on the way to the post office right now, can't wait for her to receive!


Title: Re: FOC Second Chance Wishlist Rd 3 **Gallery**
Post by: microjivvy on October 15, 2012 12:52:00 PM
The pillow case dress is just adorable!


Title: Re: FOC Second Chance Wishlist Rd 3 **Gallery**
Post by: rackycoo on October 15, 2012 12:59:01 PM
The dress is adorable, and so is that hat! Nice job, SMLounsbury!

I just received an amazing package from Bobbysgirl today!!

First of all, she sent some local food, which I can't really find here.   My mouth is totally watering for the collard greens right now....



Also, a huge amount of scrapbook paper!



Some fantastic ATCs (I have a large ATC collection.  I'm pretty much addicted....):

I love the holiday themes!  And I love that they are all painted!  (She said they are her first ATCs-- I think they're great!)


Then, a "Pinterest surprise:"

Not just one.....

but like a million of these adorable crocheted pumpkins!!  Love!!

And, lastly, I was saving this because it's my absolute favorite thing, a poppet!

It's the first poppet I've received, and at the moment I would say my own sewing skills are sub-par.  She's beautiful, especially the amazing painted eyes!

Also, another surprise... in her little bag are...

tiny things!! EEEEEE!  A mini crochet project (complete with a little hook), a die, a teeny apple, and (OHMYGOODNESS) tiny versions of the ATCs!!

WOW, Bobbysgirl, what a wonderful package!  Thank you so much-- you totally made my day, and I'm really excited for you to start swapping again!!


Title: Re: FOC Second Chance Wishlist Rd 3 **Gallery**
Post by: RhymeswOrange on October 18, 2012 04:16:47 AM
What a beautiful package.  I think my favorite are the replica poppet sized ATCs!


Title: Re: FOC Second Chance Wishlist Rd 3 **Gallery**
Post by: microjivvy on October 18, 2012 06:02:04 AM
The poppet was my favorite... right up until I saw the wee little ATC replicas -- what great fun!


Title: Re: FOC Second Chance Wishlist Rd 3 **Gallery**
Post by: alwaysinmyroom on October 18, 2012 06:50:42 AM
The poppet is so nicely done!  The tiny atcs are a hit!  And, mmmm, black-eyed peas and collard greens...my favorite New Year's Day supper!!!


Title: Re: FOC Second Chance Wishlist Rd 3 **Gallery**
Post by: ehinders on October 18, 2012 07:11:46 AM
That's a really nice poppet. I love those tiny ATC's! :)


Title: Re: FOC Second Chance Wishlist Rd 3 **Gallery**
Post by: Bobbysgirl on October 18, 2012 07:24:32 AM
I'm soooooo glad you liked everything. I have to admit the tiny atc's were kind of my favorite too. It was hard to think of something that I could do both regular and tiny sized and still be able to tell what they were :)


Title: Re: FOC Second Chance Wishlist Rd 3 **Gallery**
Post by: rackycoo on October 18, 2012 08:40:02 AM
Those are great, bobbysgirl! Her little atcs are adorable. :D


Title: Re: FOC Second Chance Wishlist Rd 3 **Gallery**
Post by: Onyxnox on October 18, 2012 09:08:44 AM
Does that mean the poppet is your mini-me?  That is an adorable package!


Title: Re: FOC Second Chance Wishlist Rd 3 **Gallery**
Post by: suereal on October 18, 2012 09:10:59 AM
How clever those mini ATCs are!  Now she won't have to worry that the poppet will snitch her set ;D


Title: Re: FOC Second Chance Wishlist Rd 3 **Gallery**

love the poppet's miniatures, and the poppet too.


Title: Re: FOC Second Chance Wishlist Rd 3 **Gallery**
Post by: Belladune on October 18, 2012 07:25:25 PM
that is a pretty rockin' package!  Those mini ATC's are so cute.  And that Poppet is amazing.


Title: Re: FOC Second Chance Wishlist Rd 3 **Gallery**
Post by: jillybeans on October 19, 2012 11:40:20 AM
Oh wow, a poppet!  How cool!!  And I love those little pumpkins!  Awesome package!

I also love that pillow case dress!  Great job on that!  I can't believe that use to be a pillowcase!  Crazy!


Title: Re: FOC Second Chance Wishlist Rd 3 **Gallery**

I love the holiday ATCs! Pinning now.

Title: Re: FOC Second Chance Wishlist Rd 3 **Gallery**
Post by: Calabaza on October 19, 2012 10:18:06 PM
I received from ehinders today! She sent a be-a-u-tiful package. I can't decide what I love the best!
I got the mail after the sun went down but I'll be sure and get pics as soon as I can. Wait till you see!
Thank you, ehinders!


Title: Re: FOC Second Chance Wishlist Rd 3 **Gallery**
Post by: Calabaza on October 21, 2012 04:33:53 PM
As I mentioned above, I received from ehinders!


A pretty pair of fingerless mitts and 2 wonderful pillow cases! I've had both styles pinned for a long time and am super happy to get them at last.


Plus she sent 2 gorgeous bracelets! The green one even doubles as a necklace! I adore these. They're lovely and fit me just the way I like. Yay!

Thank you so much, ehinders!

Ooo I like those pillowcases, Calabaza!  And the fingerless mits are really pretty!


Title: Re: FOC Second Chance Wishlist Rd 3 **Gallery**
Post by: alwaysinmyroom on October 22, 2012 06:32:04 AM
Those pillowcases are cute!  I love the one that looks like books.

Wicked tease picture! :D


Title: Re: FOC Second Chance Wishlist Rd 3 **Gallery**
Post by: Belladune on October 22, 2012 06:40:24 AM
Those pillows are wonderful!  And the bracelets are very pretty.  Wonderful package!

Twisted, at least we know it's not going to come undone in the mail! lol


Title: Re: FOC Second Chance Wishlist Rd 3 **Gallery**
Post by: ehinders on October 22, 2012 08:08:39 AM
I'm glad you liked everything Calabaza!

Thanks for all the compliements. The fingerless gloves were easy. I just crocheted a granny square until it was big enough and then crocheted up the side, leaving a hole for the thumb. Here's a closer look:


The pillow covers were super fun. I haven't done much applique before, so Calabaza, you'll have to ignore the crooked lines of my sewing! ;)
 

They turned out so good, I'll have to make myself one of each of those!


Title: Re: FOC Second Chance Wishlist Rd 3 **Gallery**
Post by: alwaysinmyroom on October 22, 2012 09:16:43 AM
I bet the pennant pillow cover was a bit fiddly!  The pieces are so tiny! :D

I bet the pennant pillow cover was a bit fiddly!  The pieces are so tiny! :D

It wasn't too bad. Sewing zig zag stiches around the ouside edges was the hardest part! :)

Post by: microjivvy on October 22, 2012 12:57:57 PM
I received from  Lo{ve} today!



For my stash: jewelry bits, safety eyes in a variety of sizes, some vintage style halloween note cards, scrapbook paper, and a ginormous heap of embroidery thread (I'm gonna need a bigger boat!).



I asked for a zippered pouch with, if possible, a gusseted bottom and this definitely fits the bill -- I expect it will be with me whenever I travel as I'm always needing a little bag for something or other!



I also asked for some hand-carved stamps -- my two faves are the heart in a speech bubble and the too cute little birdie. ;)

Thank you, Lo{ve}!


Title: Re: FOC Second Chance Wishlist Rd 3 **Gallery**
Post by: alwaysinmyroom on October 22, 2012 01:55:41 PM
I like how the second chancers are stepping up to the plate with wonderful packages!  Love the stamps!

The bag will come in handy--never can have enough of those!

I received a BEAUTIFUL package from hazelly today~ Thank you so much!!!  Everything in the box is perfect and it is really obvious that a lot of time and consideration went into this on her part.  You really made my afternoon  ;D

If I photographed everything separately, we'd be here all day...  She really took "if it fits, it ships" seriously  ;)

Check out all of the amazing goodies:

First off, an incredibly soft & gorgeous cowl~


A great variety of yarn~

(I had good intentions of donating any yarn I received to my crochet club...  Now that I see how soft & beautiful it is, I'm having a hard time committing to that...)

4 (4!!) full spools of ribbon  ;D ;D


Safety eyes, charms, buttons, jewelry, etc, etc, etc (!! again!!)


My favourite non-crafted charm ~ Can't wait to get this one on the right chain!


This charm nearly took my breath away, it's so beautiful~ She asked me what colours I wanted and I said something Fall-ish...  She scored 100% on this one if you ask me!!

(I wish I had the ability to photograph it properly... crap camera, crap lighting. sorry.  It's really wonderful)

I asked for some hair accessories and wow~ Did I ever get spoiled!  Look at these!

There are 12 in total, 3 different styles...  The square ones are like stamped tiles, the flowers are fabric with silver or bead accent pieces & the smaller circles are just awesome :)  They're like coloured glass beads with crumpled metal in them...  that's the only way I can think to describe them.  Beautiful :)

And last, but certainly not least, a whole bunch of really nicely coloured green cordoury-ish fabric & a pair of circular knitting needles.


If you ask me, this was a swap package & a half!!  Thank you again hazelly~ I'm glad that you chose me to receive from you.  I hope that we cross paths in a future swap, I'll be sure to return the favour!

Have a great day everyone :)

I received a nice package from jo_mama today in the post.

I wished for a cowl, its starting to cool down and I just love new winter accessories.  I really like the tweedy gray wool she used.


My daughter wished for a matchbox monster.


She took this cutie pic of the star on his bum! lol  Her photography skills need some work to be sure.


Thank you jo_mama for picking us, we're very happy to receive such a nice package.

I received a lovely package from twisted5whispers last night! I opened the box, instantly recognized the item on the top, set it down, and this happened IMMEDIATELY.
https://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/8228_25Oct12_DSC_0009.JPG
So obviously Felix is a fan.

The rest of the items are also super awesome! I just waited for better light to take some photos..

What a great package. I never thought of making a sack like that for a cat, but it's a great idea. Could you share the pattern, Twisted5whispers?

I second the request for a pattern (or where you found it). Felix looks quite happy in it! I don't have a cat at the moment, but I'll hopefully be able to get one in a few months!

I got an awesome package from Yofi today!! I was totally spoiled!!  First I got FIVE skeins of ILTY in all different colours

Then I got this super cute little heart pouch.  Yofi said this was her first time with a zipper!! I never would have guessed that!!!  Its sewn perfectly!

THEN, OMG, then.....I've been wanting Bella mittens ever since I first saw them on Ravelry, not cuz of twilight, but cuz of the pretty cables on them, and I GOT SOME!!!!  THEY ARE PERFECT!!! They are a pretty blue and so nice and warm.  I can't WAIT to wear them.  Weather is just weird here right now. It was 25 degrees out today!!! I got the shorts back out for this day!!! It wouldn't be unusual for us to have snow around this time, but this?? Its just weird.  Definetly not mitten weather yet, but it will be soon!!!

My pic doesn't show the cables very good, but theyre soooo pretty!!! And another first for Yofi?!?!?!  Theyre great!!
But wait, theres still more.....I got an apron!!! Another thing I've had on my wishlist forever!!  Its perfect, it fits so nicely and its just pretty as can be!!


No action shot, cuz I'm in my jammies  :D

Thanks so much Yofi!!! I can't wait to see more of your awesome craftiness in the swap boards agaiN!!!!

Awh thanks guys! I enjoyed making everything!

I found the basic pattern details from this pattern   http://media.wendyknits.net/knit/kittybed.htm

I got size 5 or 6 bulky yarn, I got size 8 needles, I looked for the recommended size for the yarn then went down two sizes so the finished bag would be a little stiffer. I followed the pattern till I got to 144 stitches? I don't know, I never counted my stitches... >.< I knitted till it started to curl up like I wanted then started randomly decreasing. I believe I knitted 10 then k2tog for a round. Honestly I just went by how small it got, I think I put 2 rows between the decreases for a few, then I did it every other. Don't 100% remember. At the time I wished I didn't make the opening so small but Felix doesn't seem to mind  ;D

The teensy poodle is actually handsewn out of this really awesome curly mini-fur. I think crocheting them might be easier, though; turning those tiny parts is HARD (my fingers ow)  :o

So glad you love everything! <3  ;D

I received an awesome package from cindibee!  She sent me a bunch of amazing stuff for my niece's dress up box.  I made one for her for her birthday in June, and for christmas I am collecting/making stuff to add to her collection.

So first off, she made this really awesome tutu:

I love the colors and the really cool printed tulle that is mixed in!  So so cute!!!

A fabric scrap/ribbon/trim boa:

There are so many different fabric and ribbons/trims in this!  She is gonna love wearing it!

A bunch of accessories:

She has a bunch of necklaces, two flower pins, and a snap on snake bracelet (which I quite enjoyed playing with).  ^_^

A felt crown:

Its so cute, and adjustable!  It totally will fit me!  I love the two colors she chose!  The hounds tooth felt is very classy!

She also sent me a felt piece of cake:

I'm totally keeping this at my house for her to play with when she is over. 

And an  awesome fabric cuff (for me!):

It fits, perfectly, too!  I love the little owl peeking out!  I didn't get a picture of it, but the inside of the cuff is a really cool newsprint fabric.  Its very cool, and so comfy!

Its dress up time!


Thanks for the awesome package, cindibee!!!

What an amazing haul from cindibee for your niece, jillybeans!!  I'm sure she is a very happy little lady right now :)  I can't decide which thing I love most out of the things that you received~ wow!

Nice work, senders :)

Not as wrong as it is for me! ;) But seriously, there's some really great stuff in this Gallery. I love the randomness of it all!

The crocheted cat bag is brilliant. Not all cats would get it, of course, but Felix obviously does! Does he like to be picked up and carried in it too?

I received a wonderful package from szuzu1969!  :)  Featuring a naughty words pillow, leather covered handmade journal, mini handmade journal, altered altoid tin, and a brand new set of oil paints!  OH I feel SO spoiled!

Hee hee.  Loving the naughty pillow.
 
to change your image viewing settings please click here

Here is the inside of my awesome blank red leather cover hand-made journal!  Left blank so I can sketch and draw (I'm going to write poetry in this, too!  I've never had a blank book especially for poetry before.)


Squee!  Can you believe this is her szuzu's first time making books?  And this one is miniature.  I love miniature things---way to stalk my interests!  Totally putting this on my mini-book bookshelf!


Next, a gorgeous polymer covered quilted pattern altered altoid tin!  Such beautiful bright colors, and SO neat for storing things in.  I've already got several ideas of what I can do with this beautiful box.  :)


The tin, opened, and a close up of my AWESOME new oil paint set, which I'm SO excited to use.  (Watch out all you people that hang around the ongoing ATC swaps!)


For the pillow, she decided to go with my  "household objects featuring your favorite swear words."  And is this pillow just a priceless treasure of swears and innuendo!  LOVING it!
 
to change your image viewing settings please click here

About the pillow she says, "I loved the taboo words incorporated into an ordinary everyday object. That is the reason I picked you. I printed the words out and then arranged them and used water on the back of the paper to transfer the words. I was very pleased with the results. After printing I wet it down and dried and ironed it."
 
to change your image viewing settings please click here

Hee hee!  LOVING all the naughty words you chose!  SO awesome!  Truly a piece d resistance that will be a conversation point in my home!

As you all can see, I've been tremendously spoiled!

THANKS so much, szuzu1969!  I feel truly privileged to have received such a wonderful package from you.  :)   :-*  Looking forward to seeing you in the swapping circle again!   :)

I am in awe of all the nice things I am seeing in this swap. I am so glad you liked your stuff WideEyedGirl I had a great time making them.

I also just loved the knitted kitty bag and will be looking for a tutorial as I have two cats that would be thrilled for one of those.

Thanks to this swap I also have two new loves as well, homemade books and miniatures. I will be scouting out the boards to get some ideas for both.

WideEyedGirl you are a great partner and definitely made it easy to pick a craft. Thanks again for the opportunity.

 I love the owl cuff bracelet! I have always liked that style and I love the owls face. I am going to have to play around and make something like that for my sister for Chrsitmas. Thanks for the idea!
 And the naughty words pillow is absolutely hilarious! Fantastic job. I thought the fabric was store bought too. Love the technique!
 If I could knit I would make one of those kitty nappers. I would have three cats trying to fit inside tho. They are not known for being polite to one another. LOL!

Holy moly, guys.  I received from Lo{ve} today (I actually had fallen asleep on the couch and knocked a bunch of stuff over when the mailman woke me up with the doorbell), and she went above and beyond, and then just kept on going!

When I opened the box, this is what I saw:


And it seemed like I just kept taking more and more out, like Mary Poppins' bag!
There was serger thread....


Rotary cutter blades, a hand carved stamp, and a wash away fabric marker...


A rainbow of my favorite Gutermann thread (and yes, some of those are the big honking 500m guys)


...and sitting pretty in the bottom, another rainbow, this time of Rit Dyes!


Thank you so much, Lo{ve}!  I don't really know what I was expecting out of this swap, but this is more than I ever would have hoped for!  Thank you so so much, and I hope you have just the best swap partners from here on out; this just absolutely made my week!   ;D

 I have a quick disclaimer. The pics are sort of bad. I know it and I plan to update them with better pics soon. My husband was called out of town for work because of an emergency caused by the storm and the camera is in his car.  :-\  I didn't want to delay any further in posting my wonderful package so I will doit now and update soon.
 I got an amazing package from caclark4. She has mad knitting skills (may be crochetting, I don't know the difference but everything is so amazing!).
 First up area some adorable little owls. I love the colors and the fuzzy one is SO soft!

 Next she sent me some super cute bookmarks. I just told my friend that I was in need of another bookmark swap and now I have 3!! Too cute. they have a sheen of glitter on the front of them. Also included is a beautiful ribbon. It has a neat design that I pulled out so you could hopefully see. And some pretty flowers that I am sure will end up on an ATC in the near future!

 and last but not least is this amazing deer hat. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this hat. It is perfectly made and so fun to wear. I especially love the pink ear fuzzies.

 Thank you so much caclark4! The package was amazing and whenever you start swapping again you will have a very lucky partner!
 Thanks!!!!!!

I love the deer hat and skulls too!  Great packages! Now I get to add pictures of my fab package that I received from kindofaddicted

She claimed me for a Nook cover and sent a gorgeous embroidered one.
The front with my initial


The back (my favorite)


and the inside...



She also claimed me for a wine cork necklace and she sent a TON of charms to go along with the necklace


They were packaged in the neatest cigar box that was lined with foam marshmallows so it can be used to hold earrings and such


Last but not least she sent two I Spy Ornaments for my kids.  I hid these from them until closer to the holidays.  It's awesome cause I have started a little box of their own special ornaments for each of them.  This way when they are adults they will have a box of ornaments to take with them that will hopefully bring back good memories.


Thank you so much for spoiling me!  Welcome back to swapping :)

Hi all,

So, I received from Blackabbey the other day but couldn't get around to posting pics until now. We were partners in the Spell My Name swap a while back. Here is what I got:







A was for the tree artwork which is adorable and is on my living room mantel.
N was for a needle felt book which included three sewing needles and has already been filled up with embroidery/crewel needles. There is also another little book to hold buttons (which she included with the book) and such. These are super cute.
D was for dollars and cents. I collect foreign (to me) coins and blackabbey was nice enough to send some. Unfortunately, the package was harmed in transit and these went MIA.
I is for idea notebooks. One of them is set up to where I can hang it near where I get inspired and another one is to carry with me.
E is for personalized stationary which elephants (one of my favorite animals) and there is a range of sizes from regular sized paper to business card size.

Thank you again blackabbey!

I agree, the button tree is perfect!  ;D It fits me really well and is in a place where everyone can see it. The elephant stationary is printed. Blackabbey did a great job with the whole package.

Oh my gosh!  Everything looks so cool! 

I adore the pillow with all of the dirty words- that cracks me up every time I look.  Those little owls are adorable, and the button tree clumsy_momma received- how sweet.  :)

It's really been fun to watch and see what everyone gets!

I have received my package from battenberg! I love everything she sent me. I've been wanting to try and make that poppy hoop myself for some time now (becouse i fancied it so much), but never started because I'm really bad at hand embroidery,... so I'm most excited about that one ;). I also almost finished the dark chocolate with berries because it's perfect:)) Luckily it was in a box, so i could include it in the picture:)
Here is the whole lot (another flower hoop from my pinterest, a great drawing inspired by up, some more chocolate, and a pretty hair band):



Thank you very much battenberg! Everything is awesome!

Don't feel bad Suereal, every time my daughter sees a poppy on our jackets she says "Poppy" followed by "Woof, woof".  She can't quite figure out the difference.

I'm awful for the kid talk.  My kids all had speech impediments, but some things they would be would be soooo cute that I just couldn't correct them, that became the new word, like nocoyico for motorcycle.  I used to get in so much trouble from their speach therapist for not correcting them!!! hahaha

I received from Crescentfresh!

What a lovely swap partner - I am enjoying all her crafted items!

So, first up is a group shot:



She sent a reusable shopping bag, a hoop, and a fantastic painting!  The bag is a great brown/ruby corduroy, sturdy and washable and perfect for bringing home the heavy things like all the jars of pickles I love to snack on!   ;)

Now, just look at this wonderful happy colorful hoopla:


I LOVE THIS!!!!  Bird! Colors! Happy! Love love love. I have it in my office and every time a professor stops by with another (last minute) request, they say "Oh! That's wonderful!" and tell me if I ever don't want it any longer, I can give it to them to hang in their office. AS IF. This puppy is MINE MINE MINE!!!!!

And THEN. Then I got a painting.


I am telling you, she got me SPOT ON.  Autumn! Birches! Sunshine! It reminds me of an aspen grove that a friend and I hike to every year in the Yakima River Valley - we try to go multiple times a year in order to see it in all the seasons, and this makes me think of all those happy trips (including spotting a hawk on a nest in the grove one year!). This is getting a cute little frame this weekend, and will also hang in my office (which, while lovely in that it is an office and not a cubicle, consists of four bare icy blue walls - so all this color is so so perfect for brightening it up!).

THANK YOU thank you thank you.  Perfect swap package!  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

My sister used to say: sta airs, for stairs, and my brother called bananas, blananas.  My boys used to call my dad grandpapa.  Now, they just call him grandpa.  And, at one time, my parents were friends w/people who had a daughter that went to a speech therapist.  I only visited them once.  I was older than their daughter, and would gently correct her speech.  The girl's dad came over to our house the next day, and had an angry discussion w/my mother.  He told my mom, that I ruined years of his daughter's speech therapy by correcting her.  My mother made me stand before him, and apologize to him.  I didn't really understand what I was apologizing for, but, I did it, because I was told to do so.  My oldest son was in speech therapy, because he spoke a hundred miles an hour.  I was always able to understand him.  Now, I miss most of what is said to me, because I don't hear that well.  My husband always just says I'm not listening or paying attention.

Ethan says blanana!!!  heehee, All my kids call my dad BumBum.  hahaha.  It started when the twins were about 18 months old, they just started calling him that, don't know why, but its stuck to this day and now they all call him that.  I don't understand why correcting her would have ruined speech therapy??  And maybe sometimes its good to not hear everything, just nod politely  ;)

I received last week from the wonderfully talented and uber generous J_Kieviet!

She claimed me for these wonderful felt piggy banks for my daughter and her 11 classmates!  They are quite thick since she sewed them with a double thickness of felt which should withstand the kids tugging on them as they try to get their coins in and out of the slot!  :)


Then she spoiled me and Lana with matching pj bottoms!  I can't tell you how much we love them!  Lana and I love to wear matchy-matchy when we can and these are perfect, warm, and very soft!!  The fabric is so cute and perfect for the holidays: skating bears, penguins, snowmen, and birdies!  :)


She also sent some wonderful crafts for Lana as well as some crafts for the charity that my daughter and I craft for: The NIH Children's Inn Thoughtful Treasures program!

For Lana: a fun house to build and decorate, Winnie the Pooh Xstitch, and an angel X-stitch!  These are the perfect size for Lana to try her hand at Xstitching!!


Tons of foam crafts to make for the kids for the holidays!  :) 


Thank you J_Kieviet for our lovely package!  We're snuggled up in our pjs tonight thinking of you!!  :)

Hey Crescentfresh! You can see the grove your art reminds me of ... http://www.panoramio.com/photo/8492132

The aspen grove is along the Umtanum Creek Trail. The creek feeds in to the Yakima River, which winds winds winds its way down/over/up/across to the Columbia River, which leads to the Pacific Ocean. When I dip my hot hands into the cool creek in the summer, shaded by those aspens, I like to think I'm somehow touching the ocean. ;)

Glad you liked the piggy banks and PJs - and that they fit!  I managed to score about 22 meters or that flannel at work for $30 because the first 4 meters where damaged, and then the edge was miss printed - no worries since the 18 meters that only has a damaged edge works perfectly for PJ pants - my oldest niece made 3 pairs, my middle niece made a pair, and I made myself a pair - all for Christmas presents for their mom and siblings, might have to do a night gown for my mom then we'll really all match:) so now the task is to find a pattern that will be easy enough for the 3.5 year old to help with:)

Just finishing troublet's package, should be in the mail tomorrow {our post is closed today}

So many awesome things, especially those I Spy ornaments, I would love to make one of those for my Neice, would the maker of those be willing to post or link a tutorial?

I received from pumperthedinosaur today! She sent me a pillow cover, a wristlet off of my pinterest (now I have 2!), and 2 Harry Potter ornaments!





The Gillyweed is unfortunately too heavy for my little tree to hold, but it has still joined my bookshelf of HP (mostly filled with stuff I've received in swaps)! The little mandrake is already on my tree.

Thank you so much for everything, pumperthedinosaur!!!

I received a really lovely package today from mcbenno!   Everything she sent was tailored exactly to my tastes and my favorite colors and I love everything she sent!    

The first thing I saw when opening up the box was this amazing chicken pincushion!   It looks just like my chicken!   :D  Perfect color and everything.  :D  It's a really nice and large pincushion too.    The wings are movable and everything.  


Adorable!   :D

And because the back side tail was so cute... I had to show off the chicken butt too.  ;)  

heehee   :)

A really great fabric bowl!   Lovely colors and its so nice and big too.   Love it!  



And then this really awesome jar of whimsies!  I love this style of jar.   :)   It had so many goodies inside of it!
Including chocolates... which somehow vaporized as I was setting up the photos.   ::)    ;)    




And here are a few shots of everything that was in the jar!  (except the chocolates...as noted above)   It also gives you a chance to see how large the bowl is too.   :)  There were so many awesome things in the jar that I can't pick favorites.  :D  


robin's egg blue glitter! (love that!), ribbon charms, robin's egg blue star glittler (neato!), purse frames, ribbons, beads, aqua colored wires!, two glow in the dark thread (so cool!  thank you!  thank you!), and little compases


more pretty beads, and ribbons with chickens on them!!!, sparklie doodads, birdie notes, cute little birdie brads, a couple different types of ribbon flowers, cords, tiny mirrors, sheepie and chicken buttons!, a handmade polymer clay button and a cute birdie pin!

Thank you so much, mcbenno!    :-*   You sent a really amazing and thoughtful package and I love, love, love everything!    :D

Liannalives sent me a package full of pocketsized lovelies!

First was this delightful dragon fellow who immediately insisted on helping me with a Christmas gift. 
Dragons are known to be wise, and he proved that by showing me a way to make two patterns merge well. This was Liannalives' first amigurumi, and it is delightful.

Another first was jewelry.  She made this wonderful wire earcuff. I haven't taken it off since I opened. Forgive the picture, it is difficult to take a picture of the top of one's own ear.


These beautiful balls have been on my wish list for years.  Colorful Dryer Balls that smell nice and clean, can't wait to use them.
So Bright and colorful!  Love 'em!

Finally, there was this small  box, with a Tiny TARDIS!  So miniscule and cute.

The little mandrake is cute!  I also have been eyeing those floral cushion covers...simple yet very nice!

The fabric bowl is a gorgeous color and size!

Love the chicken sewing organizer!!!  Brings fun into the sewing room...

I love ear cuffs!   Very nice! And the dryer balls will be great for your clothes and especially for towels! 

The baseball hoop is a good idea...I think I might borrow it for a few of my own baseball lover friends! (me, included! GO BRAVES!)

I received a great package from fluttermuffin today!  Here's the whole thing; starting from the top, she sent me a pair of pretty vintage hankies, a pair of real sea shells and a sand dollar (did you vacation in Florida?), a GORGEOUS, huge piece of embroidery, which I requested be sent with the edges unfinished so I can use it in a project, 7 skeins of embroidery floss in lovely colors, an interesting vintage box of stickers and stars, and goodies for my Blythe dolls:  two beautifully crocheted hats, and an outfit with matching hair bow for each of them!



Here's the embroidery--I love it!  The stitches are tiny and perfect. 


Here are Grace and Bonnie modeling their new clothes.  They were so happy to get something new!


Thanks for choosing me, fluttermuffin, and thanks for sending so many awesome things!  I appreciate the time, thought, and effort you put into this wonderful package for me.  Welcome back to swapping!

The embroidery is just gorgeous!

What cutie pies your Blythe babies are!  Those dresses and bows look so chic!

ha ha thirftyliving4u--I have always loved the Braves, and I am not a fair weather fan! ;)  I saw them in the old stadium, the new stadium, when they were in the World Series and when they were total losers... :D

I am going to make a quilt out of all of my Braves t-shirts someday...*sigh* and of course, post it on craftster! :D

So many great things have popped up in the last few days when I have been (sorta) working.  I figure I'll forget to mention something awesome if I name things by name, so I'll just say that everything is spectacular.  Great job everyone.

That cupcake tattoo is hilarious. Love the mini TARDIS.

Ooh, i really like the map tree wall art. I know a few people in my family (all of them) who would love the baseball hoop.

Aw, little miniature creatures. :)

I adore vintage hankies. Pretty color on those crocheted hats.

I received today, and I'll be posting pictures soon!

I received from tvelez today!

First, some things for my nieces: curly hair ties, K ornaments, pompoms, and i think we'll all play with the clay together.
 

An A for me.
 

Seattle skyline painting.
 

A hanging sewing storage/caddy thing inspired by a hoopla on my pinterest. I think i might even like this one better. :)
 
Look at the beautiful fabric.

Thank you so much, Tina! I'm in love. And my nieces are going to be so happy next time they come over. :D

That bird embroidery is so gorgeous!  I'd love to be able to do more than a backstitch someday and make pretty pieces like that :)

She sent some lovely digital photos, some pages for my Book of Shadows with info on runes and astrology, some poly clay molds, and a beautiful Tree of Life painting with elemental colors in the background (which I have upside-down in the picture :()!

Leslieshappyheart,

I'm so glad you liked everything.  I was quite anxious about the dresses, as I've never sewn anything that small before.  Funny thing is that the first dress I crafted, I kept altering because I was using my Pullip as a dress model and the original didn't fit... then I looked up the dementions of Blythe vs Pullip.... oh well, my Maxine now has a new jumper as well. LOL

Thank you (and the mods) for giving me this opportunity to join back into swapping.

I have my ID ready and the claim receipt in my purse - just waiting for the afternoon, because they will not release it until the afternoon.  I was wondering what package was waiting for me :D

What I hate about it is that the claim slip is timed less than a couple of minutes after I got home - in fact, the postal van I saw taking off as I turned the corner on my street was probably the postman - grrrr!

I received bright and early this morning from Lera-star. A big full envelope. :)

all together

just the extras.  Two!! Bags of caramels, two great shades of nail polish, more more more hand needles and embroidery needles, floss, and SHARPIES! I love sharpies...

two hoops.  I love the colours against the black fabric.  And the black and white button tree is great.

four handcarved stamps. An anatomic heart, a coffee cup, a book and my name! Now to find my ink pad and hope it isnt all dried out.

a long necklace. Featuring a one of a kind charm, and a really neat dark rock with little holes in.  Quite cool.

and two canvases for the wall.  I really like the black line drawing and the added ribbon ideas.  I may have to swipe that for some xmas ideas.  :)

Thank you lera-star. I hope you enjoy swapping again.

the rock on your necklace is a piece of lava. though i am a little upset it was suposted to arrive yesterday, meh it was canada post and i sent it after 4 pm so maybe it missed the pick up. i'm just glad you liked it all. Smiley some times i fear i over do my swaps just a bit. and it was fun making the hearts again (has done a lot of science illustrations in the past)

and most of all it was fun swapping for you. enjoy

bananaleg and mandykaye i'm so thrilled you like your packages. I see some amazing work here and I have been out of swapping for so long that i was truly worried.

Thank you so much, Tina! I'm in love. And my nieces are going to be so happy next time they come over. :D

@bananaleg- i used canvas because my sewing machine wasn't working for me... I'm not telling what was wrong, but i fixed it... *cricket cricket* no... not telling what a dunce movement i made... somewhat like my 4am attempt to load a bobbin and forgetting i also needed the top needle threaded.... yeah.... Anyway I'm glad you like it and even a bit proud that you may like it more than the hoopla ;) I also had a blast painting the letters for your nieces and you :) I hope to see pics of what is created with the clay.

Oh and thanks for the comment on my digital art. It's my baby. I really need to get back to it again.

I received a lovely package from tvelez yesterday! I work evenings/nights so I had to wait till today to post!

She sent some lovely digital photos, some pages for my Book of Shadows with info on runes and astrology, some poly clay molds, and a beautiful Tree of Life painting with elemental colors in the background (which I have upside-down in the picture :()!

Thanks so much for picking me tvelez, you did a wonderful job!

@mandykaye: I owe you better copied of those pictures i was so upset they got cropped. My digital art is my favorite and i'm so happy you like them. I had a bunch of gemstone and herb BoS stuff before my external HD crashed and took 300GB of files with it... so i am very happy you liked what I sent :D. I'll post another pic of the Tree of Life. It's my favorite work thus far :D

I received today from kitkat_pro.

She sent me a wonderful two sided apron that fits very nicely but I let my table model it instead of myself.  The one corner is folded so you can see both fabrics

                     


She also made me a Snoopy embroidery straight from my Pinterest and a Joy plaque which was an idea I had on Pinterest

               


And she included some great fabrics and a book by an author I've read before but not this book

                             

Thanks kitkat_pro, I hope you have fun swapping again!!

I received from Mrs. Awesome_Pants and it was a box of awesome crocheted and scrappy goodness.

First off, she sent me two crocheted fabric mats, which I am thinking are good colours to use in my bathroom.  Once I convince Ginger that they are not there for her comfort - she claimed the pink and blue one right after I took the pictures.





She also sent me three cute butterfly bookmarks - perfect as I was thinking I could use some more (I tend to read multiple books at once, and they are great for marking patterns/articles/recipes for the future)



Cotton face cloths - I like this thread/texture - it feels like it would exfoliate nicely



Nylon pot scrubbies -



and finally, a reusable swiffer pad - a vital thing, as I have an abundance of dog fur floating around.  Even though there is only one dog in the house now, I suspect that years down the road, I will still find evidence of our dearly depart Toby - he shed the equivalent of another dog every week I would swear!  I loved the Swiffer, but hated that it was not reusable - so this will get a lot of use!



Thank you Mrs. Awesome_Pants for your hard work and generosity in picking me, and welcome back to the wonderful world of swapping!

I received from the wonderful Jellybean313 yesterday and today put much of the package into use already!!!
Can't wait to use the rest!



A Fabric Waste Bag for the Minivan.

I love the fabric choice and the inside is a shiny plastic-y material for "other than paper" waste. GENIUS!

Cloth Napkins:

4 Napkins of each color! I collect and use cloth napkins (I am a big fan of the mix and match) and these will fit in perfectly!

Full Apron:

I also collect aprons and I didn't have a black/grey/silver one... YAY!!!! I love the shimmery silver pattern so very much!

TEA WALLET!!!!

This is so in the running for my favorite of the lot! (The waste bag a close 2nd  ;) )
My current purse of choice is a khaki messenger bag and this wallet just about matches it spot on! I love the use of corduroy and fun fabric on the inside. Also, the TEA! I'll be so thrilled tomorrow morning when I get to try something new!

Jellybean313, thank you so SO SO much for the great stuff!!! I got to take a much closer look today whilst taking pictures and I am so impressed at your stitches.

Thank you for choosing me and I can't wait to see you around the swap boards!!!!!!!

( And I actually have a tattoo similar to that design lol!) And I am always impressed with digital artwok! I cannot even fathom how it is done and I love the work you sent me!

I apologize for the delay in posting pictures. Here are the great things that fluttermuffin sent to us.
Group shot:

Ron Hoopla which I love!

And omg, I thought she was going to make something to do with a Monster High doll but she went beyond, she actually bought one for Alijah! How cool is that!?!

There is also embroidery thread and sea shells and a fluffy scarf.

Thank you so much! Alijah will get the doll at Christmas.

Here's the lovely package I got from flyeraven in the mail yesterday! 


Close-ups:

A set of cute onesies with dinosaurs, to add to the small but growing stack of baby clothes I'm... about to need in a couple months. ;)


A huge set of hand-made greeting cards.  Now I'd better go write to people!


And an action shot of one of the two fingerless gloves (because it's very difficult to take pictures of both your hands at once.)  I was wearing both of them, really. :)

Thanks so much, flyeraven!

I've received a spectacular package from crosswind! 

First off is the really cool table runner (I had asked for one to fit under my giant fruit tray).  Its very long and I wasn't able to get a good picture of it laid out so here is the close up (there are 3 big circles stitched onto the background paisley fabric)  I love it, the colours are perfect and the burlap base is genius.  and circles yay!!!



Next there were 2 zippered pouches in the cutest fabric (I've had to hide the moustache one away from my teenager :D) and a bag of little doodads including rusty wire!  There is no such thing as enough rusty stuff in my house...



a really cool piece of art made from a book, the window is carved into the cover and although it is difficult to see there is a wire hanger on top.  Love the little rusty wire nest hanging off the bottom :)



Lastly there was this cute little stitched bird on its own twiggy stand :)



Thank you for choosing me crosswind and sending such a great package of crafty goodness!  Welcome back to swapping :)

We got home from Thanksgiving at the in-laws (5 hours away from here) to find that I received from Beki710!

She sent me some great stuff, all the way across the Atlantic Ocean!

First, the "overall" shot.

I got a nice note explaining what she chose to create and something about why. 



I think this one is my favorite.  A kitty picture using SheepBlue's technique of gluing whimsys to a canvas.  It lost a couple of parts on its journey, but a little quality time with my hot glue gun and I think its all better.  (I may not have put everything back in the original places, but I think I did pretty good).  I love the little teapot down in the left bottom corner, the little drink with the straw above the huge button on the left.  There are so many cool little things there, I keep seeing new things each time I look again.

 

I got a Welsh dragon hoopla!  Done in very small stitches.  She said it is the very traditional image from the Welsh flag.



Some cool "DNA Earrings".  (Add the usual issue with getting a good pic of something small and shiny -- they are blue not purple)



A couple of patterns.  I told her that I liked cats and dragons, so she sent me one of each! 



And some neat candy.  I haven't tried any of it yet (but we will).  I find the "teeth and toothbrushes" candy especially funny!  My daughter wants to open some of the chocolates (but I wouldn't let her until we got home from dinner).

Sorry about the delay, I had to replace the batteries in my camera. Here is my amazing haul from Catrinau:


Tons of yarn to play with!


A beautiful koi with shiny button scales. Very pretty and clever! I lovelovelove this!


Two super-cute shirts for my youngest son. He loves these!



Thank you so much for everything!

I'm so glad you liked everything :)  I wasn't real impressed with the black T bleaching effect I tried to do with the one, but I really liked the Aboriginal art Frog I did.  My cousin is from Australia, and had just sent us up some stickers with Aboriginal art on them, and I used that as my inspiration.
I wanted to keep the Koi. :) LOL  Now I want to make some more button art. :) 
And sorry the yarn wasn't more organized.  I just moved, so I went through my boxes and boxes and boxes of yarn and put whatever I thought you might be able to use into your box. :)
This was a lot of fun. :)  I love crafting. :)

Post by: LaughingLark on November 25, 2012 05:12:12 PM
Catrinau, the yarn is just fine, and I will put it all to good use. There is a hat I was working on while we were traveling that I had to put aside because I ran out of yarn colors that worked well for it. I'm eyeing some of the yarn you sent to finish off that project. I might work on that tonight. I'm delighted with the yarn. We are seriously broke right now, and I can't shop for yarn at all. What you sent me is an awesome and fun variety, and I will enjoy crocheting with it!  :)

I received from BlueTiger80 today - a huge box with what seemed to be a whole roll of bubble wrap inside  ;D

I got supplies - a adult sized foam head for making and photographing my hats on, shrinky dink pages (can't get them here) and a giant bag of peanut butter cups (can get them, but only if I trek into town, and even then, a bag this size costs over $30) I lurve peanut butter cups - these are so all mine, I'm not sharing with the kids lol!

I also got a dragon trinket box (hope you don't mind me borrowing your photo, but none of mine turned out, with the flash)

AND... some gorgeous dragons!

I'm not sure where to hang them yet, perhaps a few hooks in the ceiling next to where I am putting my hoopla wall, but for now they have a nice safe home in the dragon box  :D
The Quetzalcoatl with the rainbow wings is my favourite ;)

Thanks heaps for a fabulous package BlueTiger80, I love it all, and welcome back to swapping!

I received from mamakitty78 today, on my birthday no less. Thank you so much for such a great package, I love everything and know my little one is going to be very excited when she wakes up tomorrow. 

She sent all sorts of fantastic play food for my toddler to cook with in her kitchen.  She's going to love it all, especially the spaghetti. 



I also received beautiful space fabrics for a Teesha Moore Style Patch Project I'm planning.  I love them all so much, and am very excited to use them.   


And last but not least she sent a very cute and huggable puppy to add to our growing army of stuffies (one day I'm sure they are going to overthrow us...)


Thanks again mamakitty78, it's a great package and will all be well loved.

What a great birthday box!  (Excellent timing!)

I bet your wee one is having a blast with the food.  :)  That is a really neat toy. 
The fabric is gorgeous too- I'll have to watch your posts to see how your project comes out.  I love the space theme. 
Not to mention that stuffie!  I'd love to hug and cuddle the puppy.

Mamakitty78 is my best friend and I can vouch that that stuffed puppy is 100% hand stitched!  I am in total awe of that, especially with how big it is and all the amazingness it possesses! 

I am so happy to see so many people getting back into the wonderful world of swapping.  It is so much fun and this gallery is amazing!

Firstly a huge apology for the delay, to mokba43, in posting these pictures, a combination of work and the flu..

but now the camera seems to be co-operating.

I got a fabulous mexican DOTD themed package, which I was totally thrilled with. It actually had some goodies actually from Mexico...some wonderful fabric (I am a total fabric tart)..a lovely cushion cover, which covers the perfect neck pillow when you are feeling sorry for yourself post-flu. A real sugar skull and these great sugar coffins, I have glazed them and they are added to my DOTD corner. A lovely little patch that my daughter snaffled, some great paper cuts (now on my kitchen wall) and my favourite of all a DOTD apron from some mexican fabric...

I LOVED everything!




and my DOTD corner...eagle eyed swappers will recognise some of these things!

I got a wicked cool package from Dynamine in the mail today!  :D
Thank you so much!  It's been really rough for me lately, so this came right at the right time for a pick me up. 

No unwrapped pictures, since I took a couple and now think I accidentally deleted them.  Whoops!  Sorry.  :(  It was cute blue tissue. 



I just adore everything.  :) 
There's a wonderful needle book that is strawberry shaped.  The cover has such cute stitching for the leaves, and BEADS!  I'm a real sucker for beads.  It's just adorable.  Bear with me, I love needle books and it's just perfect.

I got such a huge kick out of the needlebook I took a few pictures.  The stitching on the leaves is just darling, and again, seedbeads as the seeds!

Includes some needles pre-stashed.

Very well put together.  I can't wait to fill it up later tonight! 

A neat microwaveable heating pad- I've wanted one of these for ages and it's awesome!  She did a really great job too, it's made of fleece and flannel so it is very soft.  The colors are so perfect too!  Obviously, since it nearly blends into my couch...   ;D  I can't wait to curl up with it after dinner.  I'll have to watch out and make sure my boyfriend doesn't try to steal it on me!

A bunch of super shiny and lovely DMC light effects threads to play with!  Plus a couple of cute little hoops and some silver embroidery thread too!  :) 

Finally she put in an adorable wolf pattern too.  Can't go wrong with wolves for me.  ;)


Even my rabbit, Thor, got a huge kick out of the box.
 
I kept missing the time he spent with his head in the box digging at the tissue wrapping!  I'm really not a hoarder or anything, I just keep some boxes and stuff around in the area when I have him running around.  It keeps him busy.   



Thank you a million times over, dynamine!  Your package is fantastic, I really can't believe this is the first one of those heat pads you have ever made.  It came out wonderfully! 
I'm so glad you were my partner.  :)  Welcome back to swapping!

:D  Thor is having a blast with the box and tissue wrapping paper. 

I have to say, the heating pad is freekin' AMAZING.  I have it on my lower back right now and I'm in heaven.  :)  Thanks again dynamine!  Feels so good!

Post by: dynamine on December 04, 2012 05:34:19 AM
I am sososo glad you dug everything!! This was the first time I've attempted a blanket stitch, and it was the first time I'd made a heating pad. So, you know...I was nothing if not ambitious.  ::)

I am loving Thor there, too. Now I really wish I'd have sent a rabbit toy!!


Title: Re: FOC Second Chance Wishlist Rd 3 **Gallery**

Oh man, I received from mangomerle over a week ago but haven't been able to catch a few minutes to post photos.  Sorry mangomerle!

A beautiful package was offered to me.  Starting with the dishes, which I've been wishing for a long time.  These are the first pieces I've received from someone through Craftster!



A soap dish.  A couple of CP soap bars were included but the peppermint one is already long gone.  =)



Another dish, which is absolutely gorgeous!  I love the edging, texture and colours!  I may have to sign up for a local pottery class now.  



Some cotton fabric.  You can't see by the photo but there's a bit of shimmer on it.  I love the colours of this gift too.  Into the fabric stash it goes unil a project calls it!



And last but not least, a quilted laptop case that is much needed!  

Thanks so much mangomerle and again, sorry about the delay.

And a beautiful apron, which fits great, and I didn't have one in this style yet


Thank you Crosswind!  They are wonderful!

Soap dish... *drool*.  pincushion & roll.... hoopla & apron.... *more drool*

Well, I had my own package to drool over... I don't know where to start playing, there was so much! I am humbled and blessed for such a great spoiling partner - thank you so much Lilly!

The box took crazy long to get here - it was busy being manhandled by customs. I actually saved the green customs tape that they patched it back up with, hehe.

Group shot: green & purple hair things for my daughters; wool fiber for spinning in blue, purple & blue/green; yarn in green, dark red, red/green/purple, & green/yellow/pink/blue; 2 bags of candies; and ohmygoshsomany knitting needles!!!


Closer look at yarns:


The amazing wool fiber:


and the needles: 1 set 5mm DPNs, 1 pair 3.25mm, 1 purple 9mm circulars, gray circulars in US2 (3x), US4 (2x), US1, & US11. AND -- a wooden cable needle that Lilly MADE!!!


Thank you, what an amazing package.... *big hugs*

How annoying of me! I hate when that happens! I am so sorry! Just today, when posting pics for another swap and clearing the SD card, I realized that I had never posted the picture I took (my new camera organizes things into little folders so all of the pictures are compartmentalized and don't show up when I access the SD card). I took another one today because the light was better (the old one was under the OTT-Lite).

So, here is what dukemanistan sent! Two fantastic dino planters (and they're made with 2 of my favorite dinos... I think I need to get a stegosaurus to complete the set of dinosaur delightfulness!). There's also a set of inchies made with Candadian postage stamps and a galaxy t-shirt, which will be worn once we start learning about the solar system and universe in school (not for a couple of months, yet).



Again, I apologize for not posting a picture in a timely manner. I sincerely thought I had done it! Thanks again for choosing me in the swap, and for making me such great items!

That is actually a bit funny, it was originally supposed to be a three pack with a stegosaurus but the area I could remove between the back plates wasn't sufficient to give much room for anything to grow.

As far as the delay it's okay, like I said before at least I knew you got it.
