Welcome, SummersCalling! As you said, your bookmark might have worked better if you had completed the border before the text, but that's half the challenge of being crafty, learning what materials and techniques work best for each project and in what sequence. I just completed a swap project that had several massive fails before I finally achieved something close to what I first imagined. I learned from each flub (notice I don't call them 'mistakes', just little flubs that taught me something).

I think the little felt owl is adorable and your color choices are perfect for fall!
12  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Craft Swaps / Re: Sweat Shoppe ORNAMENT Swap Round 8 (signups end 10/23, send by 11/20) on: October 05, 2017 01:01:03 PM
CLM, the only way to get all the ornaments would be to do private swaps, and that would only work if all of us were willing to do private swaps in addition to the official swap. Otherwise you could get 6 of the ornaments if you made 6 to swap with us. Six is the max we're able to swap in the SSOS. Of course, my friend, you know how easy it is to twist some of our arms, so I wouldn't say that private swaps are out of the question.

Gnomes and angels would both be winners on my list, edel!

Haven't had Internet for the past few days (infuriating! frustrating! and big time annoying!), so am finally able to post photos of my mug rug and goodies from noooitaremybirthday.

I know you'd never guess, but nooo REALLY likes birds. This is the card she sent plus a cute ornament that my daughter's cats will destroy if I ever let it leave my craft room. On the positive side, the cats also kill bugs or any snakes that get in our garage so they're not all bad.


Then nooo was cleaning out some of her paper stash and sent some of it to me since I'm a cardmaker. As AIMR will swear, I love to use small bits of things in my crafting, especially fabric and paper, so I'm excited to start using these goodies.


These and the bird papers were some of my favorites. A chipboard dragon! How awesome is that!


Now for a teaser: the reverse side of my mat. If you look closely on the right hand side, you should see nooo's name integrated into all the other texts. Sneaky! But in such a cool way.


Then the best of a great package . . . drum roll please . . . the gorgeous flowers and word 'grow' on the front. Nooo used black scribble stitching and touches of white paint to give the piece something of a primitive, mixed medium feel that I adore! It may never see duty as a mug rug but be hung on my craft room wall instead. Thank you, nooo! You've been a great partner!

Forgot to hit 'Notifications' for the gallery. Wondered why I wasn't seeing anyone's mug rugs. Guess that explains it. As a result I posted my photos of the mug rug Nooo made me on the discussion thread. Will try to re-post on the gallery later this evening.

Homerof2, you were just on my mind because I ran across the customs receipt from our swap last year as I was trying to clear my computer desk. I'm so very sorry for the loss of your friend. You'll remain in my thoughts and prayers. Wishing you the very best!

CLM, I've looked at that scrubby yarn but decided my hands were rough enough without exposing them to that yarn. Kudos to you for your courage! Cute twinchies!

SB, with all the natural disasters that have hit North America recently, your hoop really strikes a hopeful chord. I was admiring it, then scrolled down a few lines and burst out laughing! I don't know which part of your design struck my funny bone the most: the tiger's pants, the bunny having the audacity to be riding on a tiger, the Elvis coffee mug, or some combination of all the elements, but the total is sheer comedic genius!

So very proud of all that DM has accomplished and all the new projects the kids and their supporters have activated in the community.

Would anyone be interested in a golden snitch ornament? So far it's the idea I've liked best, but I've also been tossing around ideas for cross-stitched or quilted ornaments.
I would take 2 (If I could!!!)!! My kids love Harry Potter, but Jarron especially!
Or I could just send you two without swapping for them 'cause you know I love your kids!
