I've already been claimed, I'm so excited! I gotta finish some other projects before I can even think about looking at everyone's boards but hey, I have a whole month to get on it, right?

Post by: Annchen on June 03, 2013 09:42:09 AM
I'm itching to join this swap again... I've mostly crafted for myself the past few months.


Title: Re: June 2013 Ongoing Pinterest Swap Discussion and Gallery
Post by: jexxican on June 03, 2013 05:28:58 PM
Noodle-bug, Annchen, I hope you guys do join up. This month is going to be fun, I can feel it already. I made a new note about the giveaway in the main post on the bio board. Banga has offered up a set of notecards from her shop (https://www.etsy.com/shop/jojobeandesigns) as a giveaway prize this month! Isn't that super sweet? Thanks Banga!'

Back again for another month. And this one isn't as busy so hoping to claim a bit more.  Let the stalking begin!!


Title: Re: June 2013 Ongoing Pinterest Swap Discussion and Gallery

Post by: dessadoll on June 07, 2013 07:55:08 PM
Got most of my supplies today!  Now to try and get it done and sent early this month!


Title: Re: June 2013 Ongoing Pinterest Swap Discussion and Gallery
Post by: Ffrogg526 on June 08, 2013 04:17:56 AM
I think with wrapping up school this week, having to pack up my classroom, and the other swap I'm in, I may sit this one out.  Maybe join up again next month.  It was so much fun to be back in the Pinterest swap!  :)  I'll be stalking the gallery.


Title: Re: June 2013 Ongoing Pinterest Swap Discussion and Gallery
Post by: AMIFRIENDS on June 08, 2013 10:18:55 AM
Need some suplies for claim another wonderful item:)


Title: Re: June 2013 Ongoing Pinterest Swap Discussion and Gallery
Post by: jexxican on June 08, 2013 05:47:29 PM
We already have a sender, sweet!
I saw something that bunny1kenobi had pinned and at the end of the comment it said "Pin now, read later." and I had to ask her...
"But will you read it later? I've noticed people post that all the time, the whole "pin now, read later" thing, and I have to wonder, will they actually read it later? How often do we go through our own pins and read things with that tag? How often do we go through your own pins and use ideas from them? Or how often do we go through and just delete stuff we already did/made/no longer need pinned? In the long run, couldn't this go on to reflect upon our lives in general? Ah, Pinterest and philosophy..."
Thoughts from the OPS?


Title: Re: June 2013 Ongoing Pinterest Swap Discussion and Gallery
Post by: Grab a coffee on June 08, 2013 09:35:23 PM
I have a lot of "pin now read later" pins, and I am always looking after those things. Sometimes I only have time to run thru the boards, but when I have a bit more times, I am always reading blogs mentioned in pins like those. :)


Title: Re: June 2013 Ongoing Pinterest Swap Discussion and Gallery
Post by: rscowtown on June 10, 2013 05:44:01 PM
I have just sent my package to our lovely hostess :)

Post by: gala_apples on June 10, 2013 10:11:59 PM
rscowtown- I was so into one of the items on your pinterest I started precrafting. I still don't have the swap room to signup, but as soon as I get feedback for one, you're getting claimed.


Title: Re: June 2013 Ongoing Pinterest Swap Discussion and Gallery
Post by: gamemom42 on June 11, 2013 06:05:24 AM
I'm back and ready to play!  For those of you who were aware that we were waiting for results, my husbands "year out of treatment" scan was clear... WE ARE CANCER FREE!!!  They even let him have his chemo port removed almost a year early because everything looks so good.  Life is good indeed.

I've sent my questionnaire but I'm going to go ahead and start working on a hoop for homerof2 while I wait for approval. 


Title: Re: June 2013 Ongoing Pinterest Swap Discussion and Gallery
Post by: Grab a coffee on June 11, 2013 07:01:24 AM
yay, awesome news, Teresa! Congrats! :) Welcome back to swaps! :)

Post by: Homerof2 on June 11, 2013 09:16:01 AM
gamemom42, great news about your husband!!!!!  Can't wait to see what hoop you are working on.


Title: Re: June 2013 Ongoing Pinterest Swap Discussion and Gallery
Post by: gamemom42 on June 11, 2013 09:57:46 AM
Thanks!

homerof2:  Do you want to know or would you prefer a surprise (keeping in mind that I'm not officially claiming yet since I'm not officially in the swap for this month yet  ;) )?

Ha ha, I've already marked you for that claim, gamemom. I'm very happy for your family and glad you're back in the swap. Hurray!

Gala apples, hurry and get feedback! I've missed you, too!


Title: Re: June 2013 Ongoing Pinterest Swap Discussion and Gallery
Post by: gala_apples on June 13, 2013 04:30:01 PM
officially in, officially claimed my first item. I hope that someone's intrigued by my list :D


Title: Re: June 2013 Ongoing Pinterest Swap Discussion and Gallery
Post by: rscowtown on June 15, 2013 06:36:20 PM
Gala_apples list intrigued me, along with a bit of surfing for something to craft it with, and im excited to start crafting for her :)


Title: Re: June 2013 Ongoing Pinterest Swap Discussion and Gallery
Post by: jexxican on June 20, 2013 11:29:46 AM
Maybe I should make a swap rule where you have to post in the discussion thread at least once a week, or even at least once every two weeks. Come one, people! Where's everyone at? I'm thinking about making my first claim soon, since I'm the only one who hasn't made a claim yet this month, but I have a lot of WIPs. Maybe I should have a goal, finish 2 monkeys, make a claim. Eh? Eh?

ETA: I've been trying to upload the pictures of the dish scrubbies Cowtown sent me but I can't get my camera and PC to work together. Sorry! I have other pics to load, too, so this really sucks.


Title: Re: June 2013 Ongoing Pinterest Swap Discussion and Gallery
Post by: Grab a coffee on June 20, 2013 12:46:58 PM
I am working on my 3rd claim at the moment (for Melissa), and waiting for my package arriving to Jessie... to be able to claim one more .)


Title: Re: June 2013 Ongoing Pinterest Swap Discussion and Gallery
Post by: AMIFRIENDS on June 20, 2013 01:01:11 PM
I hope my Package for  denorange arrives soon.


Title: Re: June 2013 Ongoing Pinterest Swap Discussion and Gallery
Post by: jexxican on June 20, 2013 02:58:52 PM
These came from Cowtown last week. Yay!

Just kidding, I totally just uploaded the wrong pic. Silly computer of mine. let me find the right ones.



Title: Re: June 2013 Ongoing Pinterest Swap Discussion and Gallery
Post by: gamemom42 on June 20, 2013 03:28:54 PM
I'm still stitching on Homerof2's hoop.  I plan on making one more claim for the month but I want to finish this one first.  I should be ready to claim again by Monday or Tuesday.



Title: Re: June 2013 Ongoing Pinterest Swap Discussion and Gallery
Post by: dessadoll on June 20, 2013 08:56:06 PM
I plan to make a 3rd claim in the near future.  Many options so trying to narrow it down.


Title: Re: June 2013 Ongoing Pinterest Swap Discussion and Gallery
Post by: jexxican on June 21, 2013 05:03:26 PM
I received from Grab a coffee today! Look, they are too cute. For Alice's birthday coming in October she made me some pins. Too cute!
Here are the favor tags:

And here is her 4 tag and my own personal pendant as an extra. Isn't her stitching impressive? Love it!


Title: Re: June 2013 Ongoing Pinterest Swap Discussion and Gallery
Post by: AMIFRIENDS on June 21, 2013 06:17:30 PM
Those pins are so cute!!!!!

I sent the pincushions for gamemom today :)


Title: Re: June 2013 Ongoing Pinterest Swap Discussion and Gallery
Post by: Grab a coffee on June 21, 2013 11:05:34 PM
Oh Finally! :) I was worried if they lost... I hope, Alice will like those! :)
My pictures:




It's time to claim my last one in this month... :)))

Welcome, Skaborsk!


Title: Re: June 2013 Ongoing Pinterest Swap Discussion and Gallery
Post by: skaborsk on June 25, 2013 07:25:39 AM
Hi guys! I can't wait to jump in! Maybe after work tonight i will have time to sift through all your pinterest boards and see what i can make.


Title: Re: June 2013 Ongoing Pinterest Swap Discussion and Gallery
Post by: skaborsk on June 25, 2013 07:19:54 PM
Ok, i claimed Dessadoll! I really wanted to claim Denorange too, but she has already been claimed 2x and has only made 1 claim, so i thought it might be poor form to claim her when others haven't been claimed enough, right? I'm not really sure, still new at this swap! Maybe i can get her in the next round :)


Title: Re: June 2013 Ongoing Pinterest Swap Discussion and Gallery
Post by: jexxican on June 25, 2013 07:59:05 PM
skaborsk, I used to think the same way about this swap and then I realized that this swap is more for claiming who inspires you the most. Most of the people in here are pretty laid back about it. And if someone doesn't feel like she is getting claimed enough, maybe she should check her pins?


Title: Re: June 2013 Ongoing Pinterest Swap Discussion and Gallery
Post by: skaborsk on June 26, 2013 05:58:01 AM
i like that philosophy! for me the best part about swapping is not what i receive, its about finding inspiration to make things i may not have on my own. it gets me to craft outside of the box, and i love that! swaps have gotten me out of lots of craft ruts  :D


Title: Re: June 2013 Ongoing Pinterest Swap Discussion and Gallery
Post by: jexxican on June 26, 2013 07:32:18 AM
Finally started working on my first claim! Yay!
AND we have ANOTHER late comer to the swap! Welcome kriSmith!


Title: Re: June 2013 Ongoing Pinterest Swap Discussion and Gallery
Post by: kriSmith on June 26, 2013 07:49:41 AM
Here I am! I'm late in the month, but didn't want to have to wait for July to start. I've got motivation and figured I better use it when I have it.


Title: Re: June 2013 Ongoing Pinterest Swap Discussion and Gallery
Post by: AMIFRIENDS on June 27, 2013 08:01:18 AM
My parner recived days ago. She hasn't post pictures.
I'll try to upload one this afternoon


Title: Re: June 2013 Ongoing Pinterest Swap Discussion and Gallery
Post by: AMIFRIENDS on June 27, 2013 10:35:22 AM
here´s what denorange rcived from me:
two hooplas with mario and luigi.


she said she like them, so , I´m happy for that  :D


Title: Re: June 2013 Ongoing Pinterest Swap Discussion and Gallery
Post by: jexxican on June 27, 2013 11:23:30 AM
Those Mario and Luigi hoops are so great! Super use of the red/green.


Title: Re: June 2013 Ongoing Pinterest Swap Discussion and Gallery
Post by: gamemom42 on June 27, 2013 12:02:58 PM
Very cute hoops!


Title: Re: June 2013 Ongoing Pinterest Swap Discussion and Gallery
Post by: skaborsk on June 27, 2013 07:35:46 PM
those hoops are awesome!


Title: Re: June 2013 Ongoing Pinterest Swap Discussion and Gallery
Post by: Homerof2 on June 27, 2013 07:49:45 PM
I don't usually claim this late in the month but I found a hoop I just couldn't resist making!


Title: Re: June 2013 Ongoing Pinterest Swap Discussion and Gallery
Post by: jexxican on June 27, 2013 08:38:18 PM
I should make at least one more claim this month, but I just started stitching for you, Homer. Funny how it seems to be taking a similar route as one hoop I've sent you before, but in a totally different context. Crazy! Also crazy: how hard it is to stitch with a BABY crawling all over you.


Title: Re: June 2013 Ongoing Pinterest Swap Discussion and Gallery
Post by: gamemom42 on June 28, 2013 06:33:55 AM
I got rscowtowns puzzle gessoed and have the first coat of paint on.  I think it needs one more coat then I'm off to Hobby Lobby to find lots of fun patriotic papers. 

A little hint for anyone thinking of doing their first altered puzzle.  After going to all that time and trouble with the gesso and paint, I now realize that you can just peel the picture off most puzzles!  Then you have a nice blank puzzle piece just ready for your attention.  Live and learn, huh?


Title: Re: June 2013 Ongoing Pinterest Swap Discussion and Gallery
Post by: kriSmith on June 28, 2013 08:20:11 AM
And I'm glad you claimed me Homerof2. I can't wait to see what you're doing. My curiosity is peaked.


Title: Re: June 2013 Ongoing Pinterest Swap Discussion and Gallery
Post by: Banga on June 28, 2013 09:58:29 AM
Somehow I missed this entire thread's existence:/ Duh.

Anywho, I had tons of fun making my art for ThatsWhatSheSaid and can't wait to hear if she loves it as much as I did:)

Also, how will you be choosing this round's prize winner, Jexxican? Random drawing from a hat? I've got a new paper shade set aside for the winner's cards already! Just need an initial:)


Title: Re: June 2013 Ongoing Pinterest Swap Discussion and Gallery
Post by: gala_apples on June 28, 2013 03:07:40 PM
Gamemom42, another option is to just flip the puzzle. That way you can work on the chipboard back, and the receiver still has the original image to make putting it together easier.  :)


Title: Re: June 2013 Ongoing Pinterest Swap Discussion and Gallery
Post by: jexxican on June 28, 2013 06:20:24 PM
Banga, I usually do a random number generator for the prize. Are you OK with sending out of the country? That part is all up to you, oh dear, wise, giveaway-prize-giver.

OK! I need to make one more claim but I don't know what! And I don't have time to waste on Pinterest. *gasp!* You guys know what I can do, right? Who wants me to make them something?

oh such sweet hooplas of L and M :)
Great craftin Ami.

Ive been working overtime then had a horrid headache and dizzyness thurs so called in. unfortunately i spent most of the day trying to sleep the headache off. I haven't been able to craft to much this month but today im finishing up my claim for gala. I had hoped to claim more but it just wasnt in the cards :( I hope life slows down for July!

I flipped the first one I made for myself, but this one is small (because of our two week claim out deadline) so I didn't want to make it "that" easy.  I do think on larger puzzles flipping is the way to go.

Oh no!  Did gala apples and I claim you for the same thing?  I'll be happy to do something else patriotic themed for you.

I've got a super package from Julia (alterknitive) today. She made a cool knight helmet for my son:


The size is perfect, the weather is not, that's why you can see the sad face:




And I've got a cool bracelet, already wearing it!



Thanks a lot Julia, I love everything! :)))

Suck a cute knights helmet! Sucks when the kids won't cooperate, though, eh? haha! Too cute!

The winner of the June giveaway is *drum roll please* RSCOWTOWN!!! Woo! I'll get your info to banga so she can be super awesome and personalize some cards for you. Thanks for playing everyone!


Title: Re: June 2013 Ongoing Pinterest Swap Discussion and Gallery
Post by: gamemom42 on July 03, 2013 10:57:53 AM
I love the knight's helmet!  I'm pretty sure I've got that same one on my Crafty Wishes:Yarn board so if you ever want to make another one... just sayin' ;)

The bracelet is very pretty too.

Congrats rscowtown on winning this month!

This time I got the back taped before I flipped it over and oh what a lovely patriotic altered puzzle it is!

Thank you so much Gala! I know the first line of your anthem, and my Mom was a Canadian citizen and Dad served in the RCAF and we still have relatives in Winnipeg. I would love to go back up and travel the country. We went coast to coast when I was young but of course I don't remember much of it.

I think I will put a hanging loop on the back so I can put it on the string clothes line on my walls so I can enjoy looking at it.

Many thanks!

Sorry for my late posting, I have got a few days ago a beautiful package from Melissa (Shamie1999) with a car-bookholder. When my son saw that, he already said that it's his stuff as there are a lot of cars on it! Started to put some small cars and caterpillars in, then I show him, how to use it well, which bag is for the cars, and which is for the books. (so, Melissa, your idea was awesome with the cars pocket at the bottom!).
He cried a lot, when we said that it will live in the car, but when we set it up, we went to a small vacation together by car, so he could use it.
(On the pictures, there are only one book in it, as my son always swithed the books on the whole 2hours travel, and when he get off the car, he hold his books.)




I love the colors, it's well sewn, and it was a perfect gift for my son! Thanks a lot, Melissa - again! :)))

You guys constantly amaze me. That Jack wall art is so fun! And that car organizer, wow. The car catcher on the bottom is super sweet.

Organizer's note: We are almost done. ALMOST DONE! I am so excited for another swap going great. I hope it goes great. You guys are going to keep us on a no-angel streak, right? I should look into how long our streak is... Pretty good, I think. I will post the first bout of feedback after Homerof2 receives from me. So hurry up and get it already, Cindy! I am so excited for you to open it! If anyone needs feedback sooner and you are eligible for it, just PM and I'll see what I can do for you. Thanks you guys!
-Jessie

Here is the altered patriotic puzzle that Gamemom 42 sent me. She also included some lovely painted and papered clothespins to use.  Thanks so much for the cool puzzle. I'll have to put some sort of hanger on the back so I can put it up on the string clothesline behind my computer :)

Skaborsk, the OPSs are totally individual. You don't have to have all of your items received or even sent in one month to be able to join the next month, you just can't be late. You can join the next month whenever you want to!

Oh, I love that puzzle. I love how you got 2 altered puzzles this month and they are both so different. Good job, ladies.

I thought I posted this but im not seeing it, this is from Krismith, 2 lovely pairs of earrings in my favorite color combo :) and she added 2 small tiles that she put a magnet on the back. I think they will go on the fridge, I don't have a filing cabinet in my craft room.

Thanks so much Kris!

Post by: gamemom42 on July 18, 2013 08:20:53 PM
I received a set of sweet little hexi magnets from grab a coffee too!




She also sent this adorable little let of bee and flower magnets.  They are just too cute and oh so tiny.  The teeny flower is about the size of my pinky nail!



Thanks grab a coffee.  My fridge is sitting in the middle of my living room right this minute while we remodel the kitchen.  I can't wait to get it back in place and put my new magnets to use.


Today, I received my package from AMIFRIENDS.   When she claimed me, I noticed that she said "for pincushions" rather than for "a pincushion".  I thought it was so generous that she was going to send two pincushions.  Well, I was slightly overwhelmed when I opened the box and pulled out not two, not three, but four... yes, four! pincushions!  Every one is just perfect and the workmanship is simply unbelievable.

First; a juicy little red strawberry:



Then we have a fun little crocheted spool of thread:



Next, a sweet little bee :





And finally, the cutest little yellow "Honey Bus"!!  I love them all but this is hands down my favorite!






Thank you so much AMIFRIENDS!  I feel like it's my birthday or something.  I can't wait to take these beauties down to my craft room and find special places for them in my collection.

Post by: Homerof2 on July 18, 2013 08:27:28 PM
Four is far too many for one person so could you kindly send me the spool of thread one?   ;D
