Details of swap:

OK - time for round two. This is a fairly simple swap. This is for all of us that have an over abundance of craft supplies, the "Givers" will send a box (how big or how much you send it totally up to you) to a "Needer" crafter, the "Needers" will in return send a small "Thank You" in return (ie nice hand made card, ATC, book mark, etc) nothing to big, somthing that will fit in an average size envelope, now your are more than welcome to send something bigger in return, but that is up to you.
Since this takes some work to match up appropriate givers with needers, i am limiting to 12 of each (and since I am still kinda a newbie organizer).
This is a great way to de-stash and help a fellow crafter out who may for various reasons need some supply help.
Round 1 was a great success,it went really well with no major hiccups!

Here is a link to Round 1, so you can see how it went
42  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / punked out old lady purse on: March 25, 2008 09:37:37 AM
So I bought this purse over the weekend (got it on clearance at Garden Ridge for $3), it is the perfect size for me, handles are perfect legnth, but well, it is kinda old ladish (there is a name for these quilted style purses and bags, I see them all the time, just dont know what they are called), I do like the colors in it, but it just needed a little spicing up. so before

and after

I added the skull patch, and it is kinda hard to see in the pic but i added spikes on each side of the patch, i am going to add some more stuff to it, just not sure what, maybe some black ribbon or some more patches.
43  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Really simple, fast, easy and cheap crocheted border baby blankets on: March 25, 2008 08:41:09 AM
Well, I found these recieving blankets at the Dollar Tree, I really liked the patterns and colors, but being dollar store blankets, they were very thin and the edges were not done very well, so I bought 4 of them, I sewed 2 together (right sides together, flipped them then sewed a 1/2 inch borded all the way around) using a hole punch (or an edgery doo) I crocheted this border all the way around, I kinda made up this pattern.

There are two different ones here. They turned out alot better than i thought, and they were super fast, total time with sewing and crocheting was less than 2 hours.
44  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / A set of embroidered dish towels for my sis on: March 25, 2008 08:33:04 AM
Well, I intended to have these done for christmas, then her birthday (that was in January) well, it is now the end of March and they are finished.

These were a Aunt Martha patterns called "Cute Animals", and well, they are pretty damn cute. Although doesnt it seem a shame to now use these to dry dishes. Eh, oh well.
45  Pennsylvania / Pennsylvania: Southeast / Thrift Stores in Philly? on: March 18, 2008 01:55:24 PM
My lil sis just moved to Philly with her fiance, she is on kinda a budget, so what are some good thrift stores in the Philly area (she lives in Media, her fiances fam lives in West Chester).
Also, I am going to visit her this summer, so I need to know all the places to check out.
46  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / My first felted project - granny sqaure bag on: March 05, 2008 02:25:02 PM
Well, here is it before:

And after felting:

Note to self: Do not felt in the washer with the same towels you washed the dog with (there is dog hair all matted in it that I have been slowly picking out)
I was really frustrated cause the first time I washed it, nothing happened, washed it again, a little, but not a lot, finally after the 3rd time it felted up nicely, I didnt think I was going to line it, but now I think it needs something to help hold its shape (it is supposed to be a square, flat bottom bag)
47  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / rainy day stuffie monsters (image heavy) on: February 19, 2008 11:54:32 AM
This past Saturday was just a icky, cold rainy day. We didnt go anywhere and i have been wanting to make some sort of felt stuffies anyways, so i told my son to draw me a monster shape and I cut it out of felt, he even helped stuff them, I used felt with fusable web to iron on the eyes and mouths, well here they are:

Here are two of them getting in trouble by jumping on the top bunk (could we change the song to "no more monsters jumping on the bed" instead of monkeys)

And here they are dead after a bloody sword fight (Will made them paper swords that he taped to thier hands)

My son is 6 (almost 7) and he has had more fun with these than any toy he has ever owned. He is home sick today and his grandpa is watching him ,when I went home at lunch to check on him he was showing them off to grandpa and making them fight some more, it was so cute.
48  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / Valentines for my sons class, in the shape of a cell phone on: February 08, 2008 11:27:02 AM
I totally stole this idea from family fun magazine, but I used a clip art of a cell phone
The front:

The Inside:

The buttons are candy dots (which by the way were not easy to find, after looking at about 6 places and no one had them my hubby found them at a truck stop about 40 miles away, no I did not make him drive 40 miles to find them he just happen to be out that far)

What you think? I doubt 1st graders will really appreciate all the work I put into them, but, well, eh, this is what I live for!

49  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Coozie for my pen scanner.... what should I name him on: February 08, 2008 07:01:31 AM
So if you dont know what this is, it is a hand held scanner, you just role it across printed text and it transfers to your computer. I actually made this a while back and just realized today that I never posted it.
I made it so that the cord sticks out the front, so it looks like a tounge.

Well I was thinking that since I work for a Japanese company, I would name him the japanese word for snake (hebi) or worm (wa-mu).
Here he is with his sumo buddy (my Hitachi stress relief squishy guy)

and here is what he looks like with out his insides (what the pen scanner looks like)
50  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Fun with clipart (borred at work) on: February 08, 2008 06:41:33 AM
Yawn!!!! Had nothing to do at work, but I certainly couldnt tell anyone I was bored, so I decided just to play around with clip arts and i made this:

This is just a standard 3 ring binder that you can slide a piece of paper for the cover

and a checkbook cover

for this I printed it on card stock, then laminated it, then just glued it to the back of the check book (so that you can open the front)

I am working on my sons valentines today, I will post pics of them later.
