This swap was so much fun! Whistley already posted pics for the both of us (Thank you! Grin ) but I thought I would add a few more just for fun.  Wink

Here's one of the Tiana headband I made that captures the beads a little better.

The fabric covered autograph books turned out better than expected for my first attempts.

Minnie mouse quilled pendant and beaded necklace

Now to show off Whistley's package to us a little more
The awesome Ariel ami and backpack

The wonderful Cars backpack and matching game

A hand carved rubber stamp. This is so amazing and well done! Love it!

And the cute piece that is taped instead of sewn by her 3yo daughter

We loved everything Whistley! Thank you so much for being an awesome partner!

KLKing, thanks! I'm bringing my camera with me and I told hubby to remind me to take pics so we'll cross our fingers. Hahaha

ostera15, thank you. I hope my mom loves them too.  Smiley

BethieB, thanks for the compliments. Now, about the machine embroidery. The only reason I had my fabric like that was because the design was too large to put it in my hoop side to side. The other towels I did were side to side because it was a shorter name. Also, I have a machine that does the embroidery for me, I dont move the hoop or anything. It hooks up to my computer and I design what I want embroidered, then I hoop my fabric and attach it to the machine and press start. The hardest part is picking out a thread color. lol. I really admire people who machine embroider (by hand) and hand embroiderers. But I can't do it to save my life....and the machine is way faster! lol. The longer of the two names took about ten minutes to embroider. My machine is a Singer Futura if anyone is interested.

alwaysinmyroom, here is the template. I can't remember for the life of me where I found it. I think it was a free template site. Like I said before I printed each one to a full page of cardstock and scored on the dotted lines so they fold to the inside. The bottom and right tabs get glue and a slit up top so the box can open and close. Super simple.

 I'm thinking I may put some shredded paper (basket filler) on top to look like frosting. Nothing too fancy since a bunch of kids are going to take it apart. Haha

kwiltykate, I love that cupcake purse!! So cute!

Waggonswest, your quilt is beautiful! Keep up the good work!

Bethieb, your shrink plastic necklace is great! I love that you used recycled plastic!

always, OMG your craft room looks awesome! A huge weight off your shoulders I'm sure. Oh, and to reply to your post a page or so back...Yes, it does seem I'm on kind of a garden kick...and I didn't even realize it until you pointed it out! Hahaha!

Ok, so yesterday and today were busy busy crafting days for me. I crafted for about 3 hours yesterday and 8 hours today!! Of course with little breaks to feed myself and the kiddos  Wink  I really got alot done.

First, I know I've already posted these but I added labels  Grin

Two rice hot packs for mom and MIL

A towel turban for my mom

and my daughter modelling it.

Two hooded towels with machine embroidery and boo-boo bunny for my niece.

And two more hooded towels with embroidery and boo-boo bunny for my nephew.

And a closeup.

In progress

A dress for my daughter. I bought this fabric about 2 years ago and have just gotten around to putting a simple seam up the back and ribbon straps.

This is a favor cake for my nieces birthday. I made all the "cake slice" boxes from cardstock. They'll be filled with candy and prizes and have The Princess and the Frog decorations on the top once I go to the party store.

So as of today I'm up to 17 projects for May!  Shocked   I know! I'm shocked too! Hahaha

I'll most likely be quiet for the next few days because I'm going on a trip for the weekend and packing for 2 adults and 2 young children takes planning! I will try to get some action shots of the kiddos in their hoodie towels.

Keep on crafting everyone!

Tamalama, I am so so happy you like your charm bracelet and necklace! Thanks for being an awesome partner! I did take some pics since I was so proud of these pieces. I've never done any other pieces like these and I was really happy with the outcome.

Here's the bracelet and necklace together.

The necklace. The charm is store bought.

And the charm bracelet. It was really hard to part with...I just love it!

This was a really fun swap! I can't wait for the next round!

I received from Tamalama today! She completely spoiled me with all kinds of wonderful goodies. I love everything she made and she totally nailed my tastes. Onto the awesomeness!!

This is what I found when I first opened up my wonderful package. All kinds of little goody bags.

This is the beautiful necklace and anklet that she made right from my wist. It's amazing!

But wait! The necklace is a CHARM BRACELET! Such a clever idea!

Here's a closeup of the beautifully bright beads.

I also got a matching pair of earrings, a keychain, a cellphone charm, and some awesome cherry earrings.

Wow! A whole pouch of fruit and leaf beads! These will be put to great use, possibly to make my 5 year old daughter a bracelet of her own since she loved mine so much.  Grin

And finally, last but not least, two more extras. As if I wasn't spoiled enough already!! A wonderful Alice in Wonderland charm bracelet and bookmark.

Wow, I've got some catching up to do on comments!

Casey1201, I love the apron and the bag, such bright happy colors!

Sarahj2001, the hamburger box is amazing! The dandelion paperweights are so awesome and beautiful.

Bethieb, good for you for keeping up the crafting. Looking forward to seeing your nightstand.

Sera unraveled, I love the print on the pants.

envirocraft, I really love your vase and decorative balls. Such nice earthy colors.

Well, I did another project today! I made homemade lip gloss. It turned out really well and the flavors are super tangy.
Here's a pic of the bath salt, the sugar scrub, and the two lip gloss pots.

And a closer shot

Here are the two boo boo bunnies I made. The one with the purple ribbon is for my niece's bday and the blue one for my nephew.

Up to eight projects for May.
alwaysinmyroom, if I haven't sent my swap packages my the end of this month I won't be able to post pics. But, I can PM you the pics just so you know for sure that I completed the amount of projects I'm claiming. I want to be fair.  Grin

I love the seahorse, it's amazingly beautiful! You are so talented with those buttons of yours. Do you buy your buttons as you need them or do you have a huuuge stash you choose from?

Well, I had a very productive day although I didn't craft anything! LOL  I made my weekly trip to a couple thrift stores and I'm glad I did. I'd about given up on finding a bowling ball for my garden gazing ball project, so I didn't even ask the ladies there if they'd gotten one in. Well lucky me they got TWO and saved them for me! WooHoo! One ball came in a small fabric bag and the other came in a big sturdy bag that has a wire rack in it. I'm so excited because I'll be able to use it as a stand when the gazing ball is finished. A little paint and it will work great! Check it out!

The next thrift store I went to I found this awesome bowl with a really neat base

Guess what??? It's strong enough to hold the other bowling ball!!

How great is that?? I am so excited over my great finds today!!  Grin Grin
I went and bought all the glass flat back marbles/blobs (everyone has a different name for them lol) and I got my E6000 glue that everyone talks so highly about  Cheesy  I'm tackling these tomorrow! Go Me!

Swaps are definitely helping me think outside the box. And so is this thread! I get so much inspiration and ideas from all of you! Like today we've been discussing chocolate. I decided I had to try bacon and chocolate! So I cooked up some bacon, then melted some chocolate leftover from Easter and did some dipping! I didn't stop there! I decided since I had the chocolate melted I'd better make good use of it. So, I went through the pantry and found some chile lime almonds and a jar of pepperoncinis. I also dipped some grapes.
It's not too pretty looking, but it was tastey!

The bacon was good. I think I put a little too much chocolate though. The grapes were excellent, and so were the chile lime almonds, sweet, spicy, and sour. Yum! The peppers were AWESOME!!! Loved them! An amazing flavor combination! I will definitely be making these again. I didn't even have experimenting with chocolate on my list and here it is completed! Lol! I love how things just keep sneaking onto my list!
