I'm glad that you like it and that it survived the journey - it gives me hope for the others :D

EDIT 1:

Here is my lovely wreath from kbrison!  It has a pleasing weight and I can't wait to hang it up!


EDIT 2:

I've got SIX ornaments to add to my bragging list today!

The first one is this gorgeous shiny tin ornament.  I asked for a surprise with the colours and I love what goldfish picked.  I'd like to try and make these myself but I think I might have an accident if I try to fold sharp metal as she has done - thank you for saving me from a trip to A&E!


The second is this lovely fluffy white mitten from rockingbearranch.  I love the detail around the cuff and I keep stroking the felt!


Third and fourth are these two Teesha Moore style patches from gala_apples.  Again, I asked for a surprise and I love the fabrics she chose, they are lovely and tactile with all the little bumps and stitches everywhere.


Fifth and sixth are these supercute felt ornaments from bec99.  I keep putting the little stocking on my finger and I especially love the snowflake detail on the mitten.  bec99 even sent me some cute Christmas stickers as an extra :)


EDIT 3:

This cute little fella arrived in the post today.  It's not obvious from the photograph but he is quite sparkly in person.  Thanks, MommyTheMaid, I'll take good care of him. :)


EDIT 4:

I received this excellent star from Ninaprettyballerina.  Crochet is a mystery to me so I love getting crocheted things from swappers.  Thank you very much!



EDIT 5:

I received my final ornament today, and what a way to finish.  This little guy  from crazyda79 is too cute for words!

Post by: lindyv321 on October 21, 2014 12:04:33 PM
Beautiful star!  I can't wait for mine to arrive!  Anyone else ready to pull out the Christmas stuff already?  I bought new lights for my house last year after Christmas and can't wait to put them up!

I received this beautiful wreath from kbrison


She also sent me a little gift.. a beach tin that I had admired in a previous post!  Now I can dream I am at the beach anytime I want!


I received my knit stocking from Avesthel over the weekend.  It is so adorable!  


I received lots of new ornaments over the weekend.
My stamped deer on burlap and origami star from AIMR and my awesome TM patches from gala_apples


and my quilted tree from LovelyMiss and finally my angel kitty from dearjoan


Love them all!!!!!!!!!

I received my last ornament last night from NinaPrettyBallerina a beautiful star


and I got photos of the paper star from avacadocolorado.  I couldn't capture the colors very well but it's beautiful in real life.


Thanks all for such a fun swap!

What a lovely wreath :)


Title: Re: Sweat Shoppe ORNAMENT Swap Round 5 Gallery
Post by: kbrison on October 21, 2014 03:51:52 PM
Glad some of the wreaths have already made their way to their new homes.

Lindy, AIMR also received a portable beach from me along with her quilt blocks and wreath (conserving postage since I had 16 packages to ship this week). See what happens when friends say nice things to me! Just can't help myself; I like to share!


Title: Re: Sweat Shoppe ORNAMENT Swap Round 5 Gallery
Post by: lindyv321 on October 21, 2014 04:09:24 PM
Thank you again!  I love them both!

16 packages ACK!  That is crazy!  I thought I had a lot when I sent out 6 last week!

Oooh, the tin ornament looks so lovely.  The little felt ones are really dinky and give me the fuzzies.  The wreaths are still looking great.

A fellow swapper just clued me into the fact that 'dinky' can be a negative description over in the USA.  Let me make my message clear, I love those mittens!

A few days ago, I received a braided wreath from kbrisson.



Today, I received crocheted snowflakes from hazelly.



They're all quite lovely, as you can see.  :D


Title: Re: Sweat Shoppe ORNAMENT Swap Round 5 Gallery
Post by: LovelyMiss on October 24, 2014 02:37:23 PM
I received my pretty tin star ornament from goldfishpollywog! 



She used my favorite colors, and I really love it!  I think I'll find a spot for most of my ornaments to live all year!  :D


Title: Re: Sweat Shoppe ORNAMENT Swap Round 5 Gallery
Post by: goldfishpollywog on October 24, 2014 06:00:47 PM
So many lovelies already!

The little snowflakes are some we picked up at a dollar store....they glow.

Post by: dessadoll on October 25, 2014 12:13:58 AM
Loving the gallery so far!

I will modify this post and add my goodies as they arrive :)

I got 2 wonderful packages today!  I love happy mail!

First package is a beautiful snowflake star from Amazon_warrior.  My oldest daughter seems to think she needs it for a necklace....I told her to keep her grubby meathooks off of it!


My son....wanted the box it came in!....He didn't get it.


Second package....An adorable super soft mitten from rockingbearranch.  Along with the symbolism behind her egg ornaments should I desire to try and make one. The little teddybear piece she sent along is going to become a TM patch for my tree as well :)  Now this mitten also had a thief...this time my youngest daughter.  She thought it would make a great blanket for her tiny toy dog.  Nope, not gonna happen.


Seriously.  Anyone else have kids that try to thief every single package that comes?  My kids think if its crafted, it should be for them.

I have 2 more packages to load pictures now, and hubby said there was more tonight when he picked up the mail so hopefully I will add them tomorrow.

For your viewing pleasure tonight.....

Some cute snowman TM patches from gala_apples.  


And another cute Christmas Tree patch from LovelyMiss.


I am getting giddy just thinking about setting up my tree!

Last ornament!  My little jingle mouse from gigglygirl!


I loved this swap!  Looking forward to next year!

I have decided that I will keep my tree up year round! It is only a little table tree {4 foot}, but I added 3 pumpkin/jack'o lantern ornaments to it last week. I grew the gourds myself  ;D And painted them.

This week I want to trace the kid hands and make those turkey things that they do in the schools. And share some arts with the kids.

Yes, I am a lurker here. but I love all the stuff that I am seeing.

I am renaming my ranch the Holiday farm. And love all the ideas you are sharing.

The cat is hilarious. I love the beaded star. It looks complicated to make.

I added an ornament to my post on page two. It looks ginormous but it is not.  :o


Title: Re: Sweat Shoppe ORNAMENT Swap Round 5 Gallery
Post by: kbrison on November 04, 2014 05:45:16 PM
First to arrive was the Flapping Penguin from goldfishpollywog. This may never make it onto my tree because it's just too much fun to play with it!

Next to arrive was the intricately folded star from Avocadoeldorado. I do some origami, but have absolutely no idea how she did this. And it's much sturdier than I thought it might be. As long as I take care it should last for years.

My dear friend AIMR sent the wonderful reindeer on burlap ornament I was expecting, but she also sent an origami star which relates to her heritage and was a wonderful surprise.

The most recent ornament to arrive was a felt wreath from our faithful (and very patient) organizer, Gatorwrangler.

A lovely crochet star from Ninaprettyballerina!



The most adorable kitty from dearjoan!  So cute!



And the most beautiful beaded star snowflake from Amazon_warrior!



I feel very lucky to have swapped with all of you and to have received so many beautiful ornaments!  Thank you!

I am going to steal all of those star ornaments!  Very lovely!

I need to know how those kittens are made!  They are so darn cute!  I love the B&W one because it reminds me of my dear cat Groucho when he was a kitten.  He lived for 19 years!

Here are my colorful crochet celestials from hazelly - so cute, and great colors!



And my beaded star from Amazon_warrior - amazing beadwork, and came in a wee wooden box!



Thank you both for the great ornaments!

I received this cute little bear ornament today from Kimmy.



To alwaysinmyroom or anyone else who is interested, here's the website with the instructions for how to make the angel cats:

http://www.betterbudgeting.com/christmasornaments08/angelcatspompoms.htm

I just didn't make the halo and wings for the no-angel cats. I'd never made these little guys until I made them for the swap; I came across these instructions while looking for ideas for what to make for the sweat shoppe. Once you have the supplies, they're relatively easy to make. If I can make them, so can you.  :D I recommend getting multi-packs of animal coloured pom poms as it's hard to find these colours in each size on their own, then sort your pom poms by size before making your kitties.

Dearjoan I am glad you think the bear is cute. I can't decide myself if it is a bear or koala. I actually made that one while tailgating an NFL game. Gotta take any crafts you can on the go right?

I received all of my wonderful ornaments!  Thank you ladies!  These will all be treasured and showcased on our tree this year and in years to come.  :)

Amazon_warrior Beaded stars: Absolutely love the intricate beadwork.  So lovely!!  Lana keeps wanting to take it to school, but I'm paranoid about it getting damaged so I don't let her.  But I did let her have the cool wooden latched box it came in for a mini-treasure chest.
dearjoan Angel (Or No Angel) Cats: Cute does not even begin to describe my little angel cat!
dessadoll Felted Snowman: Another homerun.  Love him.  Christmas isn't Christmas without a snowman!
kiimmmmyy Christmas Crossstiched Sachels: And of course you have to have Santa. :) This is going to be Lana's first Christmas w/o Santa...well she knows now, but she wants to celebrate with him anyhow so this ornament is extra special.  :)

Santa stuck in a chimney made me smile :)
That snowman is really lovely and I love his little scarf.
The pompom kittens are supremely cute.
I've already said it, but those little beaded stars are so intricate and clever.

I love this gallery!

EDIT:  I've received another ornament, this one's from MommyTheMaid:

I am going to take pictures of what I have received so far...seems that the international ones are taking their time getting here and also being received!

I love seeing everyone's collections!  We are a talented bunch of ornament makers, right!?

Will you guys please post a pic of your trees with the ornaments if you get a chance?  I will! ;D  Few more weeks before hubby will let me put up a tree...Turkey Day first! ;D

Oh, I'll definitely post the tree...it'll be a few weeks from now though as you say.

Thanks!  :D

I love both stars (I've got my own from Ninaprettyballerina!).  The little rabbit is very cute indeed.

Ratfinks, those snowflakes are very pretty.  How did you make them?  I think if I tried, there would be a lot of swearing and a lot of little beads rolling around on the floor.

Yowza!  I've been having the WORST time trying to get a message posted on here...  We're in the middle of moving houses & so my only "internet" is on my cell phone, which apparently does not want me making any posts or sending emails on Craftster.  Sorry for the delay!

I received two (3) beautiful ornaments from Acadian Driftwood and Amazon Warrior last week~ Love them!  They're perfectly made and are going to look awesome on our first tree in the new home :)





Thank you Ladies!!

I've received 5 of 8 ornaments already!

Here we have adorable pinecone & sweet little fabric ornaments made by Thimbles71
My kids adore these little guys!


Lovelymiss made a darling quilted tree ornament with button embellishments! The colors are fantastic...I love the fabric!


alwaysinmyroom made a sweetly stamped burlap deer & a surprise paper origami star! I love them!


I have loved Snoopy ever since I was a little girl, so this tugs at my heart strings big time! Thank you kiimmmmyy!


And here is an ornament I wish I could make ...but lack the skills to do so... a lovely crochet star by Ninaprettyballerina


Thank you so very much everyone! I'm so tickled to add these to our tree this year! :)

Such beautiful ornaments. I am quite sad I did not receive any of the beaded stars.

Thanks for the comments on my snowflake I am glad people like it. I wish it was a bit sturdier though. I used a purchased pattern for the technique but changed the beads I used to be bigger. I don't think, therefore I am allowed to post a tute?

Post by: kiimmmmyy on November 13, 2014 05:39:01 AM
Now that I'm finally done traveling I can finally post what I received.


dearjoan (Angel (Or No Angel) Cats) - So cute. I am going to have to make some of these for friends.
gigglygirl (Jingle Mouse) - I knew what this was before even opening the box. Love it!
goldfishpollywog (Flappy Holiday Penguins) - Very creative. I agree with the others that said it is fun to play with. (BTW love the packaging I need to remember that trick.)
I Sew Cute (Holiday Fun in Plastic Canvas) - So cute. I think I'm going to replace the bunny picture with a picture of my dog.
kbrison (Retro Braided Wreaths) - I love the weight and was super surprised at how big it is.
MommyTheMaid (dressed for winter snowman) - So cute. Did you cut them by hand or use something like a Cricut? I'm looking into purchasing one soon.
Thimbles71 (Pinecone Elves) - Adorable and I love the extra dog ornament. I am truly a dog lover and am currently trying to convince my husband to let me get a second one.
underthemountain (cork tree ornaments)  - Mine came broken but I fixed it. I have a ton of corks I may just have to make some of these for my girlfriends for christmas.

How do I just post the link to my original post?  You would think since I have more than 700 posts that I would know how to do this.

I am totally LMAO about the greedy little piggy post. lol.  I too want one of every single ornament.  I decided this year my tree would be entirely hand made ornaments.  Guess I better get my kids busy crafting.  I don't have many handmade ornaments aside from what I have received in this swap.  

Anywho....if you go to the bottom of page 3....there is my post with my updates.  And hoping to add another update tomorrow.

Happy Crafting!

Moderator Comment dessadoll--go to your original post...when you click on it, copy the info(address) in the browser bar...you can then just paste it so when people click on it, it will link...if you want to do a hyperlink, you would do bracket [ here url=copy of the address, http junk! bracket ] here  link to my post  bracket [here  /url  bracket ] here

dessadoll's ornaments (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=436235.msg5257568#msg5257568)

or use the hyperlink button in the message post (next to the think that looks like a little peg man) ;D

Don't type the word "bracket", just use the forward and backward brackets [ ]

2 more ornaments found their way home this week! I'm only waiting on one more to arrive & then I won't be having this much fun mail for awhile.

Thank you dessadoll & gatorwrangler! These are fantastic!

After a super crazy couple weeks, I was able to make it to the post office to pick up packages despite it's hours (9-5? Really, that's it!?), AND um, yes, check my OWN mailbox, and post those super lovely festive flavours that had been piling up on my desk!

I received all but one of my ornaments, and I've decided to post them all in one big photos.


There is... (clockwise from bottom left):
- alwaysinmyroom's Burlap Reindeer (and bonus paper star!)
- Koreena's Dala Horse (I like the colour I ended up with!)
- crazyda79's Frozen Light (it matches the Dala horse!)
- goldfishpollywog's Tin Mirror Star (shiny!)
- underthemountain's Cork Tree (I like the concept of a tree on a tree ;))
- Avesthel's knit stocking (in green stripes - it's bigger than I expected!)
- And the very first I received, Homerof2's Crochet Bell (white, and just like the ones that were on my family's tree growing up!)

THANKS To all (and to all a good night ;))

And I am, alas, resending a few ornaments! I made a very poor packaging choice, and a few got ripped open and arrived with empty envelopes. GEEZ. (My fault, my fix! Hopefully these will be out by the end of these weekend).

I want all the stars and snowmen!

I just love the tiny braided scarf!

And the beaded star looks like it will sparkle on your tree!

I like how dessadoll's snowmen all have slightly different scarves.  :)

Post by: dessadoll on November 21, 2014 08:41:04 PM
I made sure no 2 were alike :). Different arms, different noses, multiple smiles and no 2 with matching scarves or buttons. 

I love everything I have seen!  It's a pitty shipping is so darn much or I would have loved to swap with everyone.

My mailbox is overflowing, it really was, they actually put all of it in one of their official plastic crates and left it on my porch!  My camera is giving me trouble, so some were phone shots.

All the amazing creations!



Once the last ornament arrives, I will try to get a tree shot or two.

It is fun once you get it, but a bit nerve wracking waiting to get home to it.

I've received all of the ornaments from my wonderful partners now!  I will post photos tomorrow...  Thank you everyone :)

Changed my mind...  Here are some cell phone photos of the ornaments on our "tree" in the office (sadly, still at work... taking a quick break)





Aren't they all so adorable?  Must get a tree now...

I forgot to post my lovely clay ornament from psyche!

I took it alongside the ornament my brother gave to me at Thanksgiving in memory of my mom, who died in May.  It will be nice to have all of these special ornaments on our tree.



Also, bec99 sent me one of her adorable tiny felt houses...I took a pic next to my hand to show how teensy it it!

What a thoughtful brother! I know the ornament must be doubly precious since it came from him and includes a photo of your mom.That gingerbread house ornament really is super mini, and since you love miniatures it seems perfect for you.
