21  Re: Pocket Letters Round 3 GALLERY in The Swap Gallery by SonjaBoo on: October 25, 2016 04:14:25 AM
I FINALLY have photos of the incredible pocket letter that quaggy sent to me -- I am so sorry to take so long with photos. I had a virus/flu thing all last week that rendered me totally useless!

quaggy chose my hearts theme -- I soooooo heart hearts! Cheesy I adore this so much!


The back with all the awesome loot:


And some close ups! How gorgeous are these? She even made a counted cross stitch heart!








Thank you so much quaggy for a lovely swap! Cheesy

Holy moly -- so much awesomeness!  Cheesy

I received from curiousfae last week, and have been terrible about posting photos. (Mostly because I had a virus/flu thing all week -- but still. It's an amazing package that should have been posted sooner!)

Here's a look! My fireplace is now fully decorated! Curiousfae made me two gorgeous banners (the Happy Halloween as well as the fabric one along the fireplace), and light up Boo blocks!


A few close ups:




Thank you so much curiousfae! Our living room looks so festive now! Cheesy

Details of swap:
Many mixed-media artists out there have fun with Happy Mail swaps so lets bring another one to Craftster! For this swap, youll beautifully decorate an envelope (something around a 6x9ish) in the way of your choice paint it, mix media it up, add fabric, whatever inspires you. (Remember, whatever you do, you need to leave white spots or labels for your addresses!) Then, youll include FIVE small but handmade (or hand altered) embellishments or crafting doo-dads for your partner to enjoy.

This is a low-pressure swap, with the only requirement being that you must send along five hand-made or hand-altered goodies, rather than store-bought. (Let's keep this inexpensive!)

What are crafting doo-dads, you ask? Here are some ideas!
Handmade  stickers, cards, altered tags, crafty ephemera, glue stencils, inchies, altered paperclips, ATCs, hand-cut stencils, paper feathers, paper flowers, altered buttons, etc. (And many other ideas not even mentioned here! Use your imagination, as long as someone can craft with it and you made it.)

Here are a few links for inspiration!

Ok, I am going to share photos of all the gorgeousness that I received from noooitaremybirthday -- I can't promise they are straight. I don't know why, but I have been fighting with these photos! But if they are sideways, turn your heads and take in the awesomeness. Nooo spoiled me rotten!

Here are a few shots of the adorable box she sent:




The moment of opening and me squealing:


A look at all the gorgeousness! I seriously cannot decide what my favorite part of this package is -- I love it all.


Close ups:





Nooo, thank you SOOOOOO much for everything. You made my year!

I FINALLY have photos of the incredible package sent to me by Onyxnox -- Happy Mail indeed!!! Cheesy

Here's the back of the envelope on my messy craft desk, and it's exploding with goodies! (The envelope, not the desk.)


A look at everything, which includes the most gorgeous art journal ever, a bookmark I am obsessed with, her own STENCILS (hello!), a gorgeous tag, her Craftster card, two pendants that I adore and a lovely card. Swoon.


A close up of the bookmark and Craftster card and tag:


The pendants:

Thank you so much Onyxnox!!! I love everything!


noooitaremybirthday, I have pics of your package forthcoming -- but can't seem to make them not be upside down! I swear I am working on it! Cheesy

29  Happy Mail Swap? in New Swap Theme Ideas by SonjaBoo on: July 28, 2016 04:08:40 AM
Who can be sad when they receive Happy Mail?  Grin

Many mixed-media artists out there have fun with Happy Mail swaps, and I thought maybe there are some Craftsters who would too! Essentially, you would beautifully decorate an envelope (probably a slightly larger one than letter size), and include fun doo-dads that you have made like stickers, a card, bits of ephemera, glue stencils, inchies, an ATC or two, etc.

This would be a low-pressure swap, with the only requirement being that you must send along only hand-made or hand-altered goodies, rather than store-bought. (Let's keep this inexpensive!)

I am so late in posting to this gallery -- we had a death in our family, so things have been crazy.  I received a wonderful and much needed box of sunshine from zcrafter a few weeks ago and wanted to make sure that I got some photos up of the awesome stuff she sent along!

First up, all the sunny extras. Seriously, how happy is this stuff? Cheesy


Next, some gorgeous goodies for my kitchen -- a dishtowel (that will never see dishes, it's way too pretty), a potholder/trivet and a washing cloth (again, probably will never see dishes. It's for me to look at lovingly and hold every once in a while. Cheesy)  These are all a beautiful butter yellow.


Then, some awesome handmade cards! How gorgeous are these?




Thank you so much, zcrafter, for a wonderful swap! I apologize profusely for taking so long to show everyone what beautiful things you made! Cheesy
