1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Re: What simple/ easy crafts are you doing in your spare time? on: December 28, 2014 05:16:42 PM
As weird as this may seem, my family (both mine and my husband's) love my crocheted dish clothes. I can make one or two in an evening with the right movie inspiration. I make a couple, put them in a box for later use and pick up something else to do for a week or so. Smiley

I've decided that I want to make crocheted snowflakes this year, one a week. I've the thread, patterns and hooks. I just need to remember to make them. My goal is to split the set of ornaments that my gran made for me when I was younger for my two kidlets when they're old enough to have their own trees. I want to add some of my snowflakes to the batch to make at least a couple of dozen for each.

I've received 2 birthday packages!

From chughes225, a journal cover (that absolutely rocks!!!) and a HP hoopla.

And from loves2experiment, a cover for my sewing machine and a matching thread catcher. I LOVE the colors that you chose!

Thank you both for my lovely goodies! Cheesy

I apologize for being MIA for most of this swap. Life has not been fun for me lately.  Undecided

Here are the items that I received this round...a cowl from Thimbles77, a Chinese New Year Necklace by , a calorimetry from Sylvani, and a mini swap kit by KoalaScout. However, my lovely kimono pouch made by alwaysinmyroom has gone missing and I have a sneaking suspicion that a certain 7 yr old young lady has kidnapped it. I'll have to dig it out of her room to post a pic.

Thank you everyone for my wonderful items! Cheesy

Whew! I've survived the first half of the Birthday festivities for this month. My youngest turned 7 on Thursday so she had her birthday pancakes and a special dinner that day but her party with a gazillion 1st graders was today. Ugh...wore me out! Wink

I find it super cool that Idler and I share the same Birthday! Cheesy

The last of the packages should be showing up soon. Cheesy

Please make sure you have contacted me when you receive. I don't enjoy leaving comments in feedback.

I'm still here! Smiley

I've my fabric and a design. I'll dig in this week. I'm sure the gals at my martial arts studio will get a kick out of seeing me work on my piece while I'm there with my kids. LOL

Hello everyone! I get to be a birthday girl this month, not just the organizer. Cheesy

Let's see...about me....hmmm...

I'm a high school Spanish teacher by day and a martial arts enthusiast by night. I have two kidlets who keep me busy to boot.

Favorite colors: jewel tones, earth tones
Favorite patterns: muted or understated ones, ombres or nature inspired like leaves or trees (not cartoonish though)

I'm allergic to honey.

There's tons of info about me on my blog on the So You Want To Swap page. I have a pinterest. You can find the link on my profile.

~a stenciled T-shirt - there's a board on my Pinterest for inspiration, I prefer dark colors and a unisex fit, cap style sleeves look horrible on me

~crocheted or knitted house socks/shoes - I'm a 7.5.

~a hoopla for my wall - lots of info on my blog and a board on Pinterest for this!

~a cover for my sewing machine

~a simple dressing robe - I have a heavy terry cloth bath robe but I'd like something lighter for the warmer months down here in GA.

~dryer balls! Our new pup has eaten two in the last 3 months. :/

~durable plant markers for my herb garden - I really like the stamped metal spoons that I've seen around lately.

~a full length apron - I'm a shorty so you might want to ask for my measurements before tackling this one.

~a Pinterest surprise!

~fusible interfacing - medium or heavy weight
~good quality sewing thread - no reds or purples please, but I can ALWAYS use black and white.
~disappearing ink fabric markers - I go through these really quick.
~zippers - gently used is fine!

~dark chocolate - I'm a purist so 60% or higher is fine with me. Wink
~gel pens for school
