1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Mug Rug and Mug Swap GALLERY! on: March 10, 2019 06:46:34 PM
Koreena - That peacock mug rug is amazing!! I love the embroidery and the quilting! Lucky girl!

Zalphinian - How neat you got a tacklebox for your alternate vessel! I've got a couple but they all hold craft supplies! Lol.

These last two posts conclude our gallery and swap! Thank you guys so much for participating and being patient with me! I have a newfound respect for people who host swaps. Shocked I'm glad everyone has a nice new mug rug to settle in with for the last bits of winter. (Let's hope it ends quickly!) Everyone should have feedback by now. If anything looks amiss please let me know!

This gallery has been fantastic! I sat down to have my coffee this morning and it makes me so happy to have a happy, little place to put my cup.

Sorry I've been MIA the past couple days. My one-year-old has been sick and near inconsolable. He started feeling better yesterday which brings it's own set of problems. Lol!

I'd like to thank everyone for the great communication and I look forward to seeing the remaining packages! Cheesy

Okay, okay. You guys have convinced me. Heres my Love-To-Do list for this year!

1. Felt Calendar Birthday gift for Luna - Before I was even done with one for a customer Luna declared she wanted one. I told her it was a big project so Id have to give it to her for her birthday.
2. Baby Gift for Vanessa - My best friend is having another baby this year. I made her last baby a quilt. Not sure if Ill undertake that this year, but I will make her something.
3. Baby Gift for Michelle - My neighbor is also having a baby this year and Im going to make her something as well.
4. Set of Harry Potter Felt Ornaments (at least 5) - Ive had this on my list for a while but every time I go to start making patterns I get blocked.
5. Design and make a PDF/SVG pattern to sell. - I have dreams of selling digital patterns/tutorials and the kind Id like to do involve a bit of putting together a tutorial and if youve ever done tutorials at all theyre ALOT of work. Not to mention Ive got to learn to correctly format my patterns for mass consumption. Theres going to be a lot of learning curve on this one. This is the one Im not sure Ill finish this year.
6. Put together a complete digital scrapbook kit. This is more of a learning type project as well. Half the time I scrapbook I make my own stuff anyway and Id love to figure out how to properly format my stuff to possibly sell one day.
7. Christmas Light Ornaments x a ton. I have a Christmas light ornament die and Id like to make a ton of these for Christmas time/craft fair season.
8. Reading/Book Ornament/Pattern. Ive got an idea in my head for this one but I still have to make a pattern and do a couple practice ones.
9. Themed Ornament Set. I hope this counts. Id like to do anther ornament set (of at least five different ornaments) of another theme but I dont want to choose the exact theme yet.
10. Simple Advent Calendar. Id like to design a simple pattern than I can make quickly for the Christmas season.

I'll pop in soonish again to actually turn in some classes for this semester!

I was partnered with Acadian Driftwood and she put together an awesome package for me. Just look!

She had a friend who makes pottery so we exchanged handmade rugs (not made by us, but some very talented potters!) and the mug she chose for me is SO neat and it totally matches the awesome mug rug she made me. Her binding and straight lines put my rug to shame but it's okay...I've got something to aspire to now! Lol. And it's TWO SIDED!!!

Bonus...it even doubles as a battle ground for my daughter's little toys:

For extras she sent me some gourmet chocolates (which is simply perfect!). So far I've only tried the raspberry one which was amazing. I'm cherishing the others for a special occasion. Smiley

Thanks Acadian Driftwood for being a great partner! Grin

Acadian Driftwood - Im so glad everything came in one piece and that you loved your mug rug and goodies! Also...that tea drawer!!! WOW! Im not a tea drinker but wowzers! You have everything in there! Glad the tin fits in quite nicely with its friends. Hehe.

- Oh man! You sure did get spoiled! Awesome package!!

- Thank you!

Everyone else
- Im starting to think this theme has a secondary theme of Treat Yoself! which I am totally on board with.  Cheesy I'll post feedback this evening when I don't have a screeching toddler ready to start his day.  Roll Eyes Wink

Hey ya'll!

First up...I fixed the gallery link, sorry about that.

Secondly...today was crazy busy and all through the back of my mind was "Holy crap....gotta get to the post office, gotta send that package!" and...I never sent it. The stars did not align and by the time I had a moment the post office was closed. I mean, what kind of organizer doesn't even send her own package on time?! And then I finally sat down to update things around here and...MOST of us are sending late.  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy And now I don't feel bad about it one bit. Lol.

So...if you're sending late, it's okay! Life happens to the best of us and by the time it settles down a bit hopefully we'll be doing so with a hot cuppa and a cute mug rug by our side. <3

Mad Crafter - Thank you!!
FiberAlchemist - Thank you for Witch Weekly!!!

I was looking at everyone's Love To Do lists and I'll have to think about how I want to do mine. Will I make more than 10 things for the rest of the year? Yes. Do I know what those 10 things are going to be yet? I have no idea. I have a couple of big papercrafting/scrapbooking projects I haven't finished yet. Wonder if I should finally finish them....hmmm. I'll have to think on it this weekend.

It's time my good people! We've had our first sender so the gallery is UP and LIVE!

A couple things:
1. Happy Valentine's Day!
2. Not sure if you saw it or not but Feb 18 is President's Day in the US (no mail) so the latest day to send out will be Feb 19!
3. Excited to see what everyone's come up with! Thank you guys for participating and making this such a great swap!

P.S. Acadian Driftwood - I picked up your mug this past weekend and if you don't like it you can just send it right back because I'm in love with it!  Wink Grin

Do you print them out into a book or leave them to be enjoyed digitally? 

I'm going to print them in a photobook. Some people print the individual pages but I've compared the costs and that would be WAY expensive. If you wanna start the Project Life App is amazing and easy!
