1  Craft Swaps / ACTIVE SWAPS WHERE SIGN-UP PERIOD HAS CLOSED / Re: Secret Santa-in-July Wishlist Swap - Signups through 7/11/18, Sendouts by 8/1/18 on: July 09, 2018 09:51:02 AM
I've sent out my claims today too, so hopefully 2 more lucky recipents will be happy soon. (or actually not so soon - we need more european crafters to make the delivers quicker for me Wink)
Today, I've got a package - i was wondering, if Santa was in town again, but this time, it was my manager from work - she sent me a Paulo Coleho book as a surprise present for the last fiscal year of hard work. Guess she smelled the holiday spirit from here? ... Smiley it was so fun Smiley (I'm in an international team for Central European region, she is Russian, who is living in Spain - kinda fun, isn't it? Smiley)

I could use my blog to host images, so here are my packages - I have got 2 awesome packs from BigBangMomma - Fabric gift sacs:
Here is the first package:

And the second one - same size of sacs with different fabrics (just perfect, see the second picture there, i just put some jewelries inside Smiley)

i love the fabrics - especially the LOTR quote one!
Thanks a lot for this awesome package! <3

I finished one thing, might try to do an extra, but it requires sewing... as do a lot of the claims I want to make.  So I'll probably make things *before* I claim, to make sure I can.  Our weather is supposed to get super-hot, though, so I might have to wait until I can have a craft night at a friend's house and just spend 5-6 hours sewing up a storm.  Cheesy

*the why, if you don't know - my dog hates the sound of my sewing machine, and not only do I not want to distress her, but having a 60lb dog jumping around near an iron is just dangerous (especially since it's set up to tabletop height!) so I only sew when she's outside (by her choice - on nice days, she stays out most of the time and only runs in to get water now and then).

This made me laugh - how much preparetion we need to do before we even start crafting?... Smiley

2 claims on their way to post office - checking a lot of Pinterest sites again today.... Smiley

Hi All,

sorry for being so silent, I forgot that I did not post pictures about the beauties I've got from Anne. So here they are:

And here they are - while I am wearing them:

Thanks a lot, Anne - these are totally my colours and my style Smiley I love them. Smiley

I just discovered Pinterest allows sections in boards!   Cheesy  I've been wanting this feature forever!  I've been happily reorganizing my pins today.  Smiley

Yea, I had the same feeling too, when I saw that on someone's Pinterest... then I realized, that I have too much pins already to organaize it... Cheesy

Hi all,

I have read thru all lists, cannot choose - and cannot wait to start crafting Smiley
My name is Eszter from Hungary - Europe. I'm 38 years old, living with my husband and my 7 years old son. I am expecting at the moment, a new little boy is coming to this world by the end of September. We do not have any allergies, but doesn't like the smell of smoke, so consider this, if you wan to send something to me.
I have some wishes for my own, but I would like to start collecting some gifts for my family and friends this year - everyone loves handmade, right? Smiley

BIG Wish:
- I am looking for something with this theme: an owl, what is taking a picture about me: https://hu.pinterest.com/pin/32158584823792211/ - it doesnt have to be a needle felted thing, it can be a drawing, a polymer clay thing, whatever you think it works.

- scrap banners in yellow color tones (for boy): https://hu.pinterest.com/pin/32158584818680408/
- Sleeping bag: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/32158584811811081/
Simple quilt (can be a one-color thing) with my sons name appliqued. Something like this: https://hu.pinterest.com/pin/207024914093530285/  His name is BENCE anyway Smiley - If you want to make it for the small one, we are calling him MANDULA at the moment Smiley
Patchwork slippers: https://hu.pinterest.com/pin/32158584816728052/
Bandana Bibs: https://hu.pinterest.com/pin/32158584824441169/ , https://hu.pinterest.com/pin/ARsTKD8W954xXD7F856fbWFgIa6ZL6S0BEyLLLrLBxs-erSTOW2wmi8/
Baby bibs: https://hu.pinterest.com/pin/32158584824441166/ , https://hu.pinterest.com/pin/AeAklbsJGLORMTh26OXEDO2PXNb5ciHTyTm-uSghnMVd-nq7DKH0NoQ/ , https://hu.pinterest.com/pin/32158584824441168/
Fabric gift bags: https://hu.pinterest.com/pin/536702480583940256/ , https://hu.pinterest.com/pin/367536019560207255/ , https://hu.pinterest.com/pin/161918549087069974/  (not in Christmas-sy colors)
Travel jewelry holder - something like this, but with more coffee-ish colors: https://hu.pinterest.com/pin/158963061826316706/

Shirts with funny texts (woman size S or M)

- Stenciled (or whatever) shirt for man (XL): http://www.pinterest.com/pin/32158584814867654/

Wood working
- nice signs, like this: https://hu.pinterest.com/pin/32158584822989008/

Other crafts
- Fort kit for a 7 year old boy
- handmade body moisturizers
-  handmade soaps  (vanilla or coffee scents are the bests)
- handmade soaps for kids: https://hu.pinterest.com/pin/535154368206273074/
- handmade post cards (with no text, or only with a few), like these: https://hu.pinterest.com/pin/491807221780486769/, https://hu.pinterest.com/pin/571675746433805953/, https://hu.pinterest.com/pin/568086940472931343/, https://hu.pinterest.com/pin/562316703458560921/ , https://hu.pinterest.com/pin/516788125983283428/

- Quilting mat  
- Brush pens
- Sharpies, big wish is white colored ones
- Calligraphy Kit (used is fine as well) https://hu.pinterest.com/pin/431712314261723480/ , https://www.etsy.com/listing/212844792/calligraphy-starter-kit  (& also books)
- Anything from Starbucks - I am a big fan. Even if we have some Starbucks already in Budapest, I am collecting mugs, bags, coffee, tea, cookies from anywhere in the world.
- A mailbox - that simple american mailbox like this: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/136515432428649752/ - you can paint it for me, or I am totally okay with any garbage one. We don't have it in Hungary, and I love it!
- Moleskines, sketchbooks for doodles (mainly A/5 size) - I am okay with your old ones, where you've used some pages, etc Favourite one: http://www.etsy.com/listing/161804640/idea-sketchbook-unlined-pocket-moleskine - a simple dotted notebook would be my biggest wish, we dont have it in Hungary
- Fabric jelly rolls (no retro style, anything else is welcomed): http://www.quiltersangel.com.au/uploads/im/Fabric/jelly-rolls.jpg
- stamps (no religious ones pls, and with less text) I am journaling, so days/months would be the best Smiley
- anything for bullet journalling
- Mollie Makes magazines (any of them, not just new)

I am learning calligraphy now mainly this new modern brush pen calligraphy so anything around this would be more than welcome. Pens, books, inks, tutorial sheets, papers... whatever you have Smiley I am also starting to learn watercolour painting... just as a tip... :-)
Another big wish here is a SIZZIX machine. It's extremely expensive here, so if you have any what you are not using anymore, I would be the happiest lady of the world to get it.
And well... the new baby is on the way, so if you have anything in your mind for him (or a big fat pregnant woman), you can surprise me Smiley
