3621  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Jar of Whimsies Rd 12 Gallery on: May 12, 2013 03:46:04 PM
I'm not a part of this swap (Although I always want to join, I don't have enough whimsies collected, and am stingy with what I have.  Roll Eyes), I HAVE to comment on my experience today in the city...

We went to an indoor flea market and the first booth we saw was FILLED TO THE BRIM of every kind of whimsie you could imagine.  I was in WHIMSIE HEAVEN!

I chose two SMALL wooden carvings-a Buddha and a frog-and went to pay for them.  FORTY DOLLARS, asked the salesman.  I said "FORTY DOLLARS???!!" and put the frog back (the Buddha was a gift for DH).

I was SOOOOO disappointed, b/c here I was thinking I could join the next round and now I'm wondering how much all the other goodies were if a tiny wood thingy was FORTY DOLLARS???!!!  Tongue  Sadness.

They are so vibrant and cute!

May I ask what yarn you used to make them?

That's a really generous and thoughtful package!  And I LOVE the purse!

I have one with feathers that's attached to a headband that I received in a swap, and I LOVE it, and wish I had more!

The ones you made are truly lovely!

I agree, many, if not all, of these mug rugs are like mini art quilts.  It's so interesting to see everyone's take on a mug rug.

I have been working on an item for AIMR constantly for about two weeks now.  I should have been done with it, but it's been fighting me.  I THINK I'm winning this time, but won't know till I get closer to the end.  Roll Eyes

I love the mini-mustache hoop!  Grin

Flaw?  Seriously, what flaw?  This mug rug will be a holiday gift for my best friend.  If I didn't already have plans for it, I would have put loops on it and hung it on my wall!  It's really lovely!

Water bottle holders!  I'm making them for my DDs' teachers as an end of the year gift this year.  They work up quickly and you could probably make a good profit on them if you use a coupon to buy the yarn with.  I use cotton yarn to make them and it takes approx. a bit over half a skein to make them.

I've also bought the six pack of water at Dollar Tree, along with the dollar packages that have the individual flavored drink mixes in them (10 in a package).  You could easily buy the water and the flavored mix, and include them with the water bottle holder for even more profit (esp. if it was a hot day!  Wink)

Good luck!

There just HAS to be a different word for _________, when every __________ you rip out whispers of the time you wasted making the ____________ the wrong way, and mocks the time you are using to remake it!  ARRGGHHH!

And what's extra annoying is that I have like four more items that I want to make, and having to remake this item is just plain annoying when if I had slowed down and not rushed into it, I would have realized that I knew how to make it all along!   Angry
