Hi, My name is Kathleen I live in the Chicago suburbs, and I will be 26 on March 28th. I work at a huge antique mall, and I make vintage embellished purses. I am really into anything vintage, especially shabby chic kind of stuff. I love owls, birds, trees, and anything with ruffles or lace. Colors I enjoy are greens, browns, natural colors, creams, etc. I don’t really like bright colors, also no earrings, I have a metal allergy in my ears.

•   Slouchy hat: like this one https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=315728.0
•   Surprise from my Pinterest http://pinterest.com/kathwoo/
•   Hand warmers/ fingerless gloves
•   Case for my Kindle 3G, ipod touch or macbook pro 15in
•   Vintage reconstructed jewelry
•   Scented candles nothing fruity or vanilla
•   Necklace like these:
•   Unique business card holder to use at craft shows
•   Leg warmers / boot socks- see pinterest (I live in boots!)
•   Zipper headband like this: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=338678.0
•   Altered t-shirts, especially tunic length (I am long waisted and tall)

•   Vintage embellishments for purses; pins, clipon earrings, buttons
•   Heavy duty button thread
•   Small change purses to embellish (especially vintage)

•   Teas especially Chai
•   Any kind of peanut butter chocolate
•   Also anything for my new puppies I will have by the end of March (they were just born 3 weeks ago!)

I received my package from Australia a few days ago, it took me awhile to figure out the picture hosting, because apparently I have issues!
But here are my goodies, and there are LOTS!

Here is everything together

My crafted items: I love the bag, and the little drawstring bags are filled with gummie candy also!

Non candy items....The cookies are good they remind me of crunchy granola bars, and the burger chips are amazing!

Finally the candy items.... The Suga (made locally in her town) is amazing, I have eaten almost all the Cadbury Frogs, and Kolas, and the Melody pops made me so excited (we had them here when I was really little but I think they were called whistle pops)

Thanks So So Much Kitten Wrangler!

I sent mine out yesterday, it ended up being cheaper to send two small boxes than one bigger box, so YEAH Kitten Wrangler gets to look foward to two boxes to open!

I received my box today from hoboe, I was so excited to receive my first swap package!! Here is what I got.....

Everything together...

All the fabric....I really love the blue and silver one in front, and all of the really. I am excited to figure out what to do with all of them!

Trim, for my purses or anything really, I just have to keep the one with the little balls away form my dog (she is very interested in what it might taste like!)

And finally...

OLD BUTTONS!!! I love the green square ones!

Thanks for a great first swap!!!

My FIRST post! Hope you like it.

So I love embellishing vintage and resale shop purses (especially with buttons!). This is my latest.....
I work at an antique store and bought this vintage clutch for $7.00, then I collected a whole bunch of old white colored buttons (I for some reason really like buttons!) I randomly sewed the buttons to the flap the opens on the clutch. Hope you enjoy, let me know what you think. I just bought a few more clutch purses from the 60's and 70's at a vintage clothing store, so more to come!
Now here are the pictures....
