Here's what I received from MissingWillow! It arrived on Friday, but weekend craziness was prohibitive to posting - sorry for the delay!!

She sent me a set of awesomely spooky double-sided coasters!

Side 1:

Side 2:

And a close up of the embroidery:

I love them! The embroidery pattern is flawlessly executed, the contrasting images are bright and creepy (love the brain!), and the binding around each coaster is perfect!

Thanks so much MW!!

That mermaid is so cute! Everything has been awesome, guys - what a fun swap!

And here are my magnets from Annchen - they are soooo coool, you guys! Look:

Some close-ups of the purchased magnets:

The butterfly is made out of wood and is so pretty - Annchen said it's a herald of spring where she's from. And the horse is a dalecarlian horse from Dalarna, Sweden - awesome!!

And the crafted magnets:

Charlie's sweater!!! haha - I LOVE that you were going to scorch it, Annchen. Cheesy

Two pop-can mangets - one HP and one nature-themed with dandelion seeds encased in the resin.

And you guys - do you see the dome magnet? That's a puffed dandelion in there! I tried to capture it:

I love it - I couldn't stop photographing it to try to capture how cool it is - here's the back:

And another front view:

Did the awesomeness come through?!?!?

Thank you so much, Annchen, for this wonderfully generous package from Sweden!!

156  Star Wars: The Force Awakens in New Swap Theme Ideas by Abbeeroad on: September 18, 2015 07:16:37 AM

Anyone else psyched for this?? While I'm trying not to get my hopes up too high, I have to admit that the trailers are making it hard!

If we swap before the release, we could craft swag for the premiere (or whenever you happen to make it to the theater).

Thoughts? Interest? I'd be willing to jump into organizing to make this happen, but I'm not sure interest level - not much buzz about this on Craftster at the mo'.

Ah! Things are looking awesome! Can't wait for tomorrow.

Here's my teaser with a question - how would folks use cork rounds like these? Magnets? Pins? As is for projects? Other ideas?
