I recently signed up for Pipsticks (https://www.pipsticks.com/) - it's a sticker subscription service Smiley. Perfect for Happy Mail!! I hope I get some new stickers in time for send outs!

I just did a round of adds for all the questionnaires in my inbox.

Ah! Good catch, thanate!! Thank you.

I only participated in round 1 of this swap but it was so much fun. I'm still hoarding a few of the crafty doo-dads that loves2experiment made for me Smiley.

Keep those questionnaires comin'! I'll be doing a round of adds later today so don't be worried if you don't see the swap in your profile right away.

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!

Good idea!! It looks like paper ribbon.
7  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Re: Cute Little Kitty on: February 15, 2018 08:25:14 PM
Super cute!! Love the grumpy kitty expression.

When I saw the first picture I was thinking to myself..."ooohhh I should make some amis!!" but then I saw the next picture with all the parts and remembered how long it takes to piece them together Cheesy!! Maybe not.

The package I sent to KittyKill seems to be taking a little detour to LA. Guess it just wanted some sunshine Smiley!

Look at all those sweaters!! I hate to say it in this thread but it's a great stash Smiley Smiley. A blanket sounds like a good idea and would certainly help you get through a lot of those.

I'm not making great destash progress but I'm also avoiding adding to my current hoard so I feel neutral about my status.
10  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Re: Enjoy the Ride on: February 15, 2018 02:16:53 PM
Scruffy puppy on a bike with flowers and happy heart balloons...does it get any better than that?? No. No it does not Smiley. The lettering on this is so neat - I haven't seen the technique before but it's great!!
