I claim SenatorOrgana for maps of my fave place!

Hey, it's Meg. I am eternally grateful for this ATC swap... whenever I am stressing, I run to my craft shelf, pull out a cereal box, cut it down to 2.5 x 3.5 , then the sky's the limit!!

moniqueramsey made me a cat house! I love it!
Here it is, unassembled. (so sorry for bad pics, my camera broke just days ago)

She enclosed 3 treats from her region (southwest) and there are only 2 pictured here....wonder why!!

Oh, it was a yummy treat! I may break down and let DH have one this eve if he does the dishes.
So the base of this house is a litter box complete with real litter in it!!  Absolutely awesomesauce!

pic of the glueing of the 4 corners
I have been acused of being an artsy fartsy space cadet, but this tops the cake. See how the bottom is constructed -

I put all 4 sections together at the same time, and put a peso in the house to weight it down. Worked very very well. Til I glued the roof without taking the peso out! so there is a permanent bit of money in the house!!  Ah well, works pretty well to stabalize it.

Really am bummed about my camera, as you cannot see the wonderful details here, like kitties peeking out of bushes and windows.

Combo of turquoise above lime green has my heart soaring. Just love it!

Giant fishies by the front door are so cool. So is the corrugated roof.
thanks so much monique for paying such close attention to what would make me really happy and for a great job of crafting.

2334  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Care package for a fellow Craftster... giving only on: August 27, 2013 10:28:13 AM


I have this idea that may need quite a bit of tweaking... suggestions of any kind welcome!
I have been in a really bad place lately, emotionally. When I see others this way on Craftster, I wish there were a system whereby a bunch of us could each send this person one small thing they would love to cheer them up. I would really like to see this happen somehow. Not only does it lift the spirit to get some goodies (as a gift) but to see just now many people do care about you.
I do not know how this would work, but I do know it would be a giving system rather than a receiving system.
I guess it could be like the regular birthday list where you would post that you are in a bad way and would like this or that to cheer you. Of course, I am in hopes that there would be no 'cheaters' who are perfectly fine...
If maybe 5 folks could craft one small item for that person and send it?
I know that giving is a wonderful feeling. When I am down, to give to someone else in pain really helps lift me.
Any thoughts?
And what on earth would we call it?

seriously cool cards to show off!
from CDEeeek, my theme of unlikely greeting cards...


It is an actual card!

so cute. I truly hope to receive on of these someday!

from rockingbearranch, spoonerisms...

she gave me both versions, an awesome idea. I looove the sketchy quality of the loon one. I really have to get up the courage to do more sketchy type illustrations, as I love them so much. I truly adore this loon!


Thank you both for wonderful cards. My collection has grown to be huge. I enjoy bringing them up to Mom's at her nursing home. She spends hours looking at them.

Hide it under the bed. I know that sounds ridiculous, but no one looks there!! I too have supplied scissors to my house for other means, and I have to hide my seamstress shears! i walked in on my brother using them to cut flowers and nearly had a heart attack!!
Wow, this is the best idea! Thanks!!!
And thank you for the sympathies from others, lol.

2337  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Next Round for Little Visitor on: August 26, 2013 08:34:31 PM


I would love to try the Little Visitor swap. I know #17 is in full swing. When might the next one be? Is there one for each season? Is it a 'guarantee' that it will happen again? Has this been mentioned already and I simply cannot locate the thread? I was not successful in a search... Thanks!

Soooo, I guess I just need to vent here and see if anyone else experiences this...
I am in the middle of creating an ATC which takes several parts to complete. One part is both drying and pressing between napkins, under a heavy cookbook. Does the sight of such a thing not trigger suspicion? Well, hubby just yanks the napkin from underneath the book and uses it. Who knows where my pressing parts have disappeared to.
I am sure that all I need to do is to get  smart and label these things!! I do not have a work area, so I create all over the house, wherever there is an empty space.
Anyone else have this going on? I can forgive the cats for finding and messing up my stuff, but a grown man... I guess I am expecting too much.
Thanks for letting me vent!!
