1  Re: Mmm! Toast! swap Gallery in The Swap Gallery by sunshinesmiles on: August 20, 2010 11:51:15 PM
Yaaaay I received my toasty goodness from Bowlordie!!!!!!!!!!!!
And it was perfect timing too since I was having a pretty rough day and this perked me right up! Smiley

Here's everything together:

An old-school Mrs. Butterworth glass syrup bottle, with her candle to stick in her head! A little stitched toast ornament type thing complete with a heart. A cute little toast which is awesome! I have some serious respect for people who can crochet because I can't really at all. And a little drawstring bag, which is in my favorite color! It came with the little erasers in it, which I find super cute! Especially the milk jug... I don't know why, it's just so different!

And here's a close-up of my little toast because I love him so much!!!

Thank you again, Bowlordie, for everything!!
And special thanks to EkkaGrrl for organizing such a delicious, toasty swap!!! Smiley

A dessert recipe book (with super yummy desserts and really neat tips and tricks!), cupcake wrappers in my (exact) favorite colors, and an image from CakeSpy! And the butterflies are rings to put on cupcakes! How cute! Smiley

And here are all of my yummy handmade goodies!
A cupcake plushie, a felt cupcake pin, three cupcake magnets, and a hand embroidered/colored framed cupcake!!

Thank you sooo much again, Missmuffcake!!! And to edenkitty for a wonderful, first-time swap!! Smiley Smiley

Wow, Im shocked. Normally by this point in the year Ive crafted for almost all of my family for their birthdays, but most of their gifts were store bought shame.  But I guess I couldnt make fish or a fish tank and my dad has a particular coffee place he frequents and the fiancs usual gift is a trip to Disneyland

Anyways, Im in charge of birthday presents for all of my sisters this year. However, this spring semester the crafty bug didnt bite me, so the only crafty thing I made for them were shot glasses (or toothpick holders if youre in Disneyland) if they turned 21. The rest of the presents were themed gifts of sorts: hot chocolate cups with mix; bags of candy; spring break themed pails with sunglasses, sunscreen, and candy; and gardening tins with those little pots ready for planting, gloves, and a shovel. May and June are going to be finals themed, so if anyone knows of something easy to craft for about 20 girls on that theme, let me know!!

1.   Ribbon pillow
2.   Paint a pina colada glass
3.   Sorority letter bag
4.   Photo luminary thing for one friend
5.   Photo luminary thing for roommate
6.   21st Birthday glass
7.   Jewelry display out of a picture frame
8.   Mothers Day present wine themed coasters
9.   Fathers Day present undecided, last year I made him this: and
10.   2 Squirrel stuffies (either out of socks or out of gloves, cant decide)
11.   Crayon T-Shirt for a class project
12.   Poster Board for a class project (hey, if I busted out the cricut, it totally counts!)
13.   About 6 tissue paper orbs for the same class project

14.   22nd birthday present with a wig out theme, but I dont know what to do
15.   Decorate the living room and roommates room in red, white, and blue and red and gold for when her boyfriend returns from deployment (hes already in, but theyre coming home tonight!)
16.   Make a cake and decorate it with army men for roommates boyfriend
17.   Brothers birthday present
18.   8 Plates that look like this:
but with a bow and pearl necklace and the names of my sisters in the Pearl family
19.   Rag doll for my sorority little sister (part of a tradition we have, we give the little rag dolls for their firstborn and they make us garters for our wedding!)
20.   Set of camera plates for boyfriends sister inspiration from https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=247653.0
21.   Embroidered pillowcase
22.   Penguin PJ bottoms for mom
23.   Dog treats!
24.   My first rag quilt for my coworkers
25.   Paint-a-dream type platter for the family I used to babysit for (but moved away  Cry)
26.   Name book for the now 10 month old I babysat for his first birthday
27.   A place book for his new baby sister that on her way (San Diego, of course!)
28.   Something dinosaur for my little sorority sisters best friend
29.   7 stuffed turtles for the Pearls who are not graduating
30.   Something for a close sister who took over my chair position this year Ive been a mentor to her and I want to make her something community service related. Her big event this semester was a prom dress drive, so maybe something after that

A lot of it I have to do tonight/by Wednesday... at least the first 6 on the list, the decorating and the cake making for tonight, and the ragdoll and something dinosaur and community service by Wednesday too. I'm sure Ill finish once it becomes Christmastime again. And once my wedding is less than a year away! Then I can start doing all the paper crafting at least!!
