1  Re: The Gallery of the Secret Santa Wishlist and Charity Swap in The Swap Gallery by luckdragon on: December 24, 2017 03:55:04 PM
I have received the most amazing secret santa presents!

I had asked for a Christmas table runner, but this is too gorgeous to put on the table.  So this will be hanging on the wall in a prominent location!

Closeup. The pattern is bells but it looks very much like trees, which I love!:

And an adorable set of beach themed earrings - little dolphins on the end!

Thank you so much secret santa!!  You went above and beyond with a fantastic package!!

And 4 starfish ornaments also from my pinterest! (only one in the photo because my mom quickly put them on the tree before I had a chance for a group photo).  They are fantastic!

Thank you secret santa!!

4  Silhouettes for everyone! in Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects by luckdragon on: December 09, 2017 01:04:58 PM
I got sucked into the Black Friday sales and decided to buy myself a Silhouette Portrait 2 (early Christmas present for me by me Smiley ).  I was worried that it was going to be yet another crafty purchase that ended up sitting in a closet (as did my original Cricut cartridge machine and my Sizzix Big Shot).  But I kept seeing awesome crafts that people were making with their Silhouette, so I was hopeful.

I have to say that I absolutely love this thing!  Everyone needs one!

My daughter wanted a Christmas presents for her roommate -

Then she was going to sharpie paint on a mug for another friend - hey let's see what we can do with the Silhouette...

Now I'm making beer glasses for my rowing team with our logo

Next I'm going to try cutting fabric.  and then using it to create a stencil for glass etching. and then....and then...

Everything is really fantastic!  Now I get to add to the goodness!

First, these cute dishtowels to hang on the stove! I'm going to give them to my daughter since she cooks and her roommate cleans (so perfect!)

Then, these adorable hand embroidered dishtowels - I bet you can guess who this secret santa is!

And finally, Bubbles strikes again! This sparkly christmas sweater ornament is fantastic!!

Thanks so much santas!!!  Sorry about the sideways pictures...stupid iphone...

6  A Yurt is just a fancy Tent in Needlework: Completed Projects by luckdragon on: October 09, 2017 09:02:03 PM
Since my daughter went off to college, I have been sending her cross stitch hooplas to decorate her dorm.  I try to come up with ones that she will find amusing. 

I was recently reminded of a funny (probably only to me and her) story from when she was little.  The Girl Scouts one year were planning to camp in yurts.  She didn't know what a yurt was and, when I described it, she said, "oh, a yurt is just a fancy tent!"  It just struck both of us funny (I know - you had to be there).  Anyway, over the years, any time either of us hears the word "yurt" (which is a funny word anyway), we just look at each other and say "just a fancy tent." 

Rambling story over, here's the hoopla:

I embroidered the yurt on fabric, then used heat and bond to attach it to the aida after stitching the letters.

Yay! I'm so glad you like what I came up with, Kittykill!

And you totally went overboard with my package! I can't believe how much stuff you got into a pumpkin!  I had to stand up on a chair to get the whole package in one shot!

Look at all the candy and fun Halloween-y stuff!  Where did you find all of this? There is washi tape, pencils, batty headband, skully glasses, witchy boot decorations, moustache, fake teeth!  

And the bunting!  So cute!

And, of course, a fantastic hoopla!

Most of this is going with me to visit my daughter at college this weekend! She's going to be so excited to get all of this! But the hoopla is for me!

Thanks so much for swapping with me kittykill!!

Such awesomeness in this gallery!!  Everything has been amazing!

And to add to the crafty goodness, I received my package from underthemountain!!

First 2 beautiful shibori dyed scarves!

Then 3 inspirational bracelets (dream, explore and create) - with the copper hand cut and stamped!

Plus a bonus bracelet and a copper tag with my daughter's name:

And for my daughter, a hunger games inspired bracelet (real or not real)

These were a bit hard to photograph, so Rox if you have better pix, please post!
Thanks so much for asking me to dance!  I love EVERYTHING!!!

10  IYP 29: Summer Swing-along SU closed, SO 9/6 in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by luckdragon on: June 29, 2016 02:16:12 PM
Swap name: IYP (invite your partner) 29: Summer Swing-along

GALLERY: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=449956.0

 This is a swap where you invite your own partner (IYP = Invite Your Partner)
If you have never joined an IYP swap before, scroll down for the details! If you have, then it's time to find a dance partner!!

Craftster member who is organizing this swap: luckdragon
co-organizer: TBD
Sign-up date range: June 29 - July 22, 2016
Date to send by: Sept 6, 2016

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): no (Ill find a co-org if over 24)
Restricted to people who all live in the same country? NO
If so, which country?
Additional Age requirement? No

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: yes
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: yes
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: yes
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: yes
- Is at least 18 years old: YES

Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:
- Has been a member for at least one month: YES
- Has posted at least 15 times: YES
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES
- Participant has agreed that he/she is at least 16 years old: YES
- If within the US, understands that Delivery Confirmation number is required for this swap: YES
- If outside the US, understands that a mailing receipt copy is required for this swap: YES[/size]

Here's how it works:
In this swap, you can contact anyone on Craftster and ask them to be your partner. It's almost like a personal swap, but with a group, and a killer gallery! You will have to sign up with your partner. That is, you must contact your potential partner via pm and you both must mutually agree to be partnered together. Once you have a partner, each of you must pm me with your information, and after doing all the necessary double checking, I will post you both together as participants and add this swap to your "In progress" feedback.

Swappers may have two partners this round! However, if you have any instances of 'poor swapping' documented in your feedback (such as 'no communication' 'did not craft in the spirit of the swap') or numerous instances of sending very late, I ask that you only craft for one partner. You may not have more than two partners.  ** New swappers may only have 1 partner**
As partners, you will choose if you want to have a theme, if you want to stalk each other and be surprised, or if you want to request from each other things you have admired in the past. You should also agree on quantity. I would suggest one "large" (time consuming and/or valuable) item, and a couple of "small" (quicker to craft) items that you know your partner will like.  But make sure that you both agree on a size.  Feel free to start crafting for your partner as soon as you are both officially signed up!
If you want to participate, but you are a bit shy of just asking someone, you can PM me and you'll be put on a list of "Potential Partners" in the next post, so people can choose from craftsters that are interested.

Please check into the thread once per week.
swappers will receive temporary negative feedback if:
- it is one week past send-outs and you are out of communication for 2 weeks
- it is two weeks past send-outs and you have not yet sent, regardless of the communication with us and your partner.

Even if you decide with your partner that you are sending late and she/he says its alright, you MUST send by two weeks past the send out date or this will be reflected in negative feedback. Once you do send and your partner has received, your feedback will be changed back to positive.  However, this late sending will be reflected in your feedback comments even if you communicated.  


The secret password phrase is: little bunny foo-foo!

ONE NOTE: It is a little scary to ask someone to be your partner. Some people may have someone else already in mind, or they may not have the time or funds to participate right now, or they may just not be interested. We need to remember to be nice if we feel we need to refuse someone, and to not take it personally if someone else turns us down.

So, in summary, here's what you need to do:

1. Contact your partner (make sure they're in good standing, swapwise), and agree to join together
2. Both partners must PM luckdragon and each other with the questionnaire including mailing information.  
3. Post in this thread weekly so I can keep up with you!
4. Make sure you can mail on time, and provide organizer with a USPS tracking number for U.S. packages.  If you are shipping internationally, make sure to save your post office receipt.
5. PM your partner and organizer when you receive as well! Your partner CANNOT get feedback unless we know that the package was received. Thank your partner both in a PM and publicly in the gallery. If you are unable to post pictures, please let your partner know before they send to you so that they can make sure to take pictures to post.  We all want to see what you got!
6. Lack of PMs to organizer and your partner will be noted in feedback!!!
7. Have fun!

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer (luckdragon) AND to your partner
