2  project life supply swap in New Swap Theme Ideas by penelopewaits on: September 25, 2013 09:08:06 PM
a really simple swap involving the exchange of project life journalling cards and supplies.

they don't have to be branded ones - in fact i think handmade ones would be more fun.

i was thinking it could look something like:
10 6x4 cards
10 4x3 cards
3 other useful things, such as stickers, ribbon, interesting paper clips, washi tape, ink, pens, or even die cutters etc.

but this is obviously open for discussion!

i can't be the only craftster who's obsessed with project life, and this would be a great way to vary our collection of supplies. what do you think?

i received from dessadoll a couple of days ago, and have finally had time to take pictures of the handmade envelopes, accordion books, and embroidered fox she made for me!

i literally gasped when i opened the parcel - it was so full of prettiness.
thank you dessadoll xxx

i received a beautiful garland of origami hearts from gamemom42 today!

she chose gorgeous colours and prints - it's just divine, and it suits our house perfectly.

(the garland is actually almost three times as long as the picture shows - i just hung it up quickly so i could take a picture!)

that total sweetie also included an embroidery hoop and some floss - exactly what a stitcher like me loves.

thank you for the lovely package, sweetie! x

7  4 inch hoopla in New Swap Theme Ideas by penelopewaits on: August 09, 2013 03:06:45 AM
i was thinking that a fun and manageable swap for those of us without STACKS of crafting time (hi, i have a toddler!) would be a single 4" embroidery hoop swap.

it'd be open for any and all forms of embroidery, and even applique if people wanted, the only firm guideline would be the hoop size.

i would probably want to keep it to a limited number of participants, just so that it wasn't too hectic to organise (did i mention the toddler?).

i'm including a couple of pictures of 4" pieces i've done myself, just for some examples...

(these are all my original designs)

is anyone interested?

hmm - i thought i'd already posted this, but iaccidentally did it on the wrong thread. my wee boy's been sick for the last couple of days, and we're all a bit sleep deprived and crazy-eyed in this house at the moment.

this is the stitchery that i did for gamemom42

it's similar to her pin, but not identical (pin here: http://pinterest.com/pin/914862397035813/ ).
i had fun making it, because it's not the kind of thing i normally do.
hope you all like it too Smiley

now that gamemom42's received from me, i thought i'd share a photo.

this is the pin i claimed: http://pinterest.com/pin/914862397035813/
and it definitely ended up being a LARGE claim (i am so bad at judging how long crafts take, and always underestimate Tongue )

i tried to make it similar, but not identical, and this is how it turned out:
