41  Re: Givers and Needers Swap Round 13 GALLERY! in The Swap Gallery by kbrison on: September 03, 2015 03:30:30 PM
Received my thank you gift yesterday from Grannie Lois. She sent so much that the priority box bulged! Grin
She sent three sizes of knitting needles for knitting in the round or making afghans plus a cable holder. DD#1 is the knitter in our household so she claimed those.

Then Grannie Lois sent crochet tools and labels which I'm holding onto since I do a lot of crocheting.

Some scrubbies that are cotton yarn on one side and netting on the opposite side. They're going to get a ton of use because my Dutch ovens can't be put in the dishwasher, so they have to be handwashed.

Then my personal favorites - gorgeous handcrafted cards with envelopes. The autumn one is spattered with copper metallic ink that makes it sparkle. Four of the cards are dry embossed and there are a variety of other embellishments plus several of the cards have sentiments stamped on their interiors. Great job on all of them! I think Grannie Lois's next swap needs to be a card swap!

I attended a Creating Keepsakes Convention recently and these are some of the cards I made or finished this week based upon classes I took.

Finally found time to make some gift tag samples. I'll offer 3 sets of holiday tags and 3 sets of birthday or special occasion tags. Each set will have 12 tags.These are just examples of some of the things I can do: stamping, dry embossing,  heat embossing, die cuts, layering, copic markers. Special occasion tags could be other holidays (Halloween, Thanksgiving, Easter, Valentine's Day), wedding or anniversary, birth of a child, etc. You can also chose color of tags. Tags are 2 1/2" x 5 1/4".
Christmas examples

Birthday examples

Grannie Lois, I took photos before I shipped everything to you, so I'll post those for you.

Last Wednesday I taught an origami bookmaking class at 4-H camp. I didn't feel like I had done much destashing until I started counting the number of 12" x 12" sheets I had donated and the amount of ribbon. They weren't bulky, but I now have 56 fewer pages of scrapbook paper and 10 yards less ribbon. Not bad for one afternoon.

The extra kits I completed.

One of the opened books.

This is the pendant I made for redpopscicles. It's based upon an image from her pinterest. The little witches have the sweetest Celtic border on the edge of their dresses. I hope she liked it.

Warning: Photo bomb coming! I didn't know a medium flat rate box could hold so much, but puamelia really stuffed in the goodies.

Sea turtles carved from coconut shells

Two four-square quilt blocks


Paper and vellum for scrapbooking and origami plus two stamps from Israel!

Two blank board books that I already have plans for

Zippers, ribbon, and other trims

Even more ribbons and laces

Buttons, charms, eyes for poppets, sea shells, paper ephemera, and three teeny, tiny origami cranes

Ribbons from Victoria's Secret & Neiman Marcus, snowflake, tiny pacifiers on a ribbon, floral pieces, and pink "angels' wings for paper-making

Thanks so very much, puamelia! It's an awesome stash!

Not one but two pendants from wiccadwitch. The first is a purple epoxy clay with layered daisies. Not sure how she managed to make the petal tips so sharp and detailed, but I think they're wonderful! I also show a shank button being held in my fingers. That acts as a slide to adjust the length of the necklace. So clever!

The second pendant from wiccadwitch is formed from what appear to be glass shards on a silver medallion base. Beautiful color and very reflective. Are they embedded in epoxy clay as well?

My pendant from whatthepuck is a washer that she treated with alcohol inks. Love her color choices! I've been wanting to try this but now I won't have to. Thanks, whatthepuck!

All my partners have been great and I know I'll enjoy wearing each of the pendants!

Received this gorgeous Tree of Life pendant today from Redpopsicles. Blue and silver is absolutely my favorite color combination so I know I'll be wearing this often. Thanks so much!

Before I show all of you the sweet treats Moonflame created I want you to check out the box she made to hold most of the items. I doubt that many people would notice, but I instantly spotted my favorite quote from Helen Keller: "Life is either a daring adventure or nothing." Despite being blind and deaf, she accomplished so much for herself and for other people with handicaps. When I was only 8, my parents and I were told that I would be blind by the time I was 10. That was more than 50 years ago, yet I still see. I've lost some of my hearing, yet I still hear. My life has been blessed by Helen's courage and each day is a daring new adventure for me. So thank you, Moonflame. The box is my favorite gift and touches me in ways that nothing else could.

To show that full size boxes aren't her only skill, Moonflame made these tiny gift-wrapped presents. The largest is only 1 1/4" high.

This bright wreath of Christmas balls is roughly the size of a walnut, perfect for a door.

Santa's workshop now has a spool of ribbon and one of yarn for wrapping gifts. The spools are only 1/4" across. Amazing!

Then Moonflame added to Mrs. Claus's domain by providing a set of plates and two rugs to keep the floors cozy.

And she obviously peeked into Mrs. Claus's cookbook because she sent almost three dozen cookies, a star cookie cutter, some dough ready to be placed on cookie sheets, and a marble rolling pin. The rolling pin had a slight mishap during shipping but it can be easily repaired.

Then I've included a closer shot to let you see just how very tiny the peppermint candies are. They're roughly the size of seed beads - teeny, weeny, tiny!

Thanks again, Moonflame and Suereal! You've been fantastic partners!
