1  Craft Swaps / ACTIVE SWAPS WHERE SIGN-UP PERIOD HAS CLOSED / Re: Planner/Journal Supply Swap Rnd 2 (SU May 14-24;SO June 15) on: May 22, 2018 05:01:45 PM
I went to Tuesday Morning this past weekend and they had a lot planner embellishments on clearance!  Shocked

What's Tuesday Morning? Stationery? Crafts? It's a great name!

Okay, I'm in. Sorry, Gozer, but I'm afraid I won't be the easiest person to partner with, as I really don't do the whole planner thing. But I'm happy to learn about that world for a partner who does. (And who knows, I might find myself being drawn over to the planner universe in spite of myself. But probably not.)

But in spite of that slight mis-fit, I think this is going to be a fun and low-stress swap.

Ya-a-ay! I've SO been waiting for this. I'll have to think a little before I can send in my questionnaire. What exactly DO I have a special stash of? Except everything, of course. I know I have one really terrific bead that I've been saving forever. That's a start.

I can't take credit for the cool patchwork cards. Thimbles71 made them, and sent me a ton. I find that they're a great size for sending out patches without needing a bubblemailer. She's really talented!

Well, thank you Thimbles71! They're a brilliant idea: make up a big piece of patchwork; decorate with free-motion stitching; cut out cute shapes; sew them onto cardstock. The result is a card you'd never want to throw out. And in fact, the duck could be cut off and sewn onto something else as a patch, which is probably what I will do.

Wow, those are great! Is that large one really as big as it looks, folded up? And what did you put on them as a finish?

I am so NOT a planner person. Roll Eyes But I do a bit of art journalling, and there's a lot of overlap of supplies. I'm going to look at the Round 1 Gallery and see if I have anything to contribute.

Wait! I'm not done yet!

Earlier this week, the amazing gala_apples sent me a pair of unanticipated, unexpected and completely un-called-for patches. Supposedly they were a thank you for small embroidery book I slipped into her package to make it thick enough to go as a parcel, but I think she probably just did it because she's so darn nice.

The happy elephant is the first "Circus" one I've received, and the lovely beetles are a great addition to my growing "Insects" collection. (Both patches are about the same size - my phone camera has just decided to present them in correct relationship of elephant to insect.)

But almost best of all, she sent another of those fabulous patchwork duck cards:

Thank you, Gala! I'm going to start slipping extra books into all my swap packages to see if it always gets this result!  Wink

I came home late from work today, tired and cranky, to find a package from gala_apples. I had sent her a book on embroidery stitches to fill out the package so it would be sent as a package and be trackable, and in return she just sent me TWO MORE patches! I'm gobsmacked! Pics in the Gallery as soon as I've had my dinner.

I made scratch cards once, using paste wax over the secret message to make the paint scratch-able. Packing tape is an excellent idea, and I expect the soap in the paint would make it more removable. I stenciled my paint spots on - faster and more controllable.

Hidden drawers and cubbyholes are some of my favourite things!
