by the way, i forgot to ask
does someone know about a GOOD craft shop?
the only things i can find here are at hemsa o fantasias miguel, and i would prefer to buy online from mexico than other place because of the shipping and all
i just remembered! there is a really good one in guaymas, sonora .if any of you guys know someone from there...

Hi Sweetlullaby, it would be great if we can make a swap. About a good craft shop in DF, well the only big franchises is Fantasías Miguel. But you can find some supplies at Office Depot/Office Max/Lumen: Paper supplies, Parisina/Telas Junco: Fabric and embellishment supplies. At downtown there are several little stores that offers free craft lessons if you buy your supplies there. Unfortunately sometimes I have not enough time to go to the stores and buy online.

Sorry girls, I'm not reserving any spot because I've already got my first package from Edel (EdelC)  Grin I'm a lucky one!

Package #1

Here's what I got:

1. Something local: Locally ground mixed tea that I'm going to try tonight.
2. Something to wear: Two lovely pair of earrings, one pair purple and lilac and the other one black with freshwater black pearls.
3. Something made out with paper: Inches. I deed a beautiful set that represent my adorable partner. (I know EdelC from the last inchies swap round)
4. Something she collect: Three different kinds of fabric. They're perfect for pouches and pencil cases.
5. Something related with her favourite craft: She loves crafts made of paper so she send me a generous bag of paper supplies.
6. Something that smells nice: An amazing incense kit. I can't wait to try it.
7. Something of sentimental value: A bandanna that she dyed when she lived in Australia.
8. Something that represent her personal style: This is another gab of supplies. This one contains a bit of her passion: sewing an altering clothes. The bag is full of: trims, buttons, zippers, feathers, laces...
9. Something that is a summer essential: Two notebooks. A little one perfect for my purse with a cover of fabric. Another of Hello Kitty (I love HK stuff, I'm 31 so it's like a guilty pleasure)
10. Something edible: 3 delicious chocolate bars. I can't helped and only left two of them.

Edel, you know you're awesome. I really love the package you sent me. I hope you and your daughter enjoy your vacation!

P.S. Your package #1 is ready but I have to wait until Saturday to send it out.


My package two arrived last week but I did not have my camera so here are the pics. THANKS EDELC!

She sent me two kits: one for embroidery and another for jewelry making. For the first one she add a needle book with cupcakes motif. I love it!, she also sent me threads and a book for instructions with patterns. For the second kit she sent me a lot of beads, pins, earwires, bracelets and little bags for my jewelry projects.

She craft for me three beautiful fascinators 1. black and peacock feathers, 2. hot pink feathers and a flower made with kanzashi technique and 3. neon pink and white tulle with a snowflake embellishment. Also she made me a beautiful hairpin flower, again like a kanzashi (I really love Japanese hair ornaments).

Because she know that I love Japanese culture she send me a beautiful pouch of Japanese fabric that is reversible (one side is navy and the other is garnet). She loves the red color, the glitter and the Christmas so she sent me a Christmas ornament. Is a beautiful heart made of felt and have beads, lace and glitter as embellishment.

None package is complete without sweets so she add three bars of chocolate, no pic of them because I ate them all before I can take pics of the goodies.



Unfortunately this was the last package from my GREAT partner Edel, I'm very glad that we have the time and spirit for this long swap. Sometimes was a little difficult but at the end we put our hearts on crafting. This time I got a super comfy and PINK hoodie with glittery embellishments (tattoo theme yeah!)

I also got a pair of jeans, I correct, an awesome pair of jeans with a geisha motif painted on them. Edel add to my package a beautiful hello kitty pair of earrings and delicious chocolates. I'll post pics of the earrings tomorrow, by mistake I delete the pics of my camera.

It was very nice to have a partner like Edel and such a nice organizer. Also, thank you ladies for this swap, it was fun to see all the great items you made.

Hi Ghilie! I also have been searching about a Spanish forum like Craftster but I only found some forums for general maintenance or forums for only one kind of crafting like Fimoland  http://www.fimoland.com/foro/

I also like to read some blogs in Spanish, sometimes I don't have enough time for this but here are some of them.
http://mikimono.blogspot.com/ (drawing, painting, notebook making...)
http://anabelgp.blogspot.com/ (felt)
http://japaya.blogspot.com/ (she's also a very talented member of Craftster who makes awesome jewelry)

Spanish speakers we need more help in this matter!

¡Suerte con tus clases de español!
Good luck with your Spanish lessons!
