I received this multi-layered mixed media piece from SunnyDawn.

There is book text, chip board, brads, stickers, doilies, and so much more.

Thanks Dawn!

You will have no idea who your partner is, until "Address time", which will be at the end of the crafting period.
There will not a be a check in time, as in previous swaps, but you should craft now and be ready to send when you receive your partner info.

When partners are assigned, you will only know their address and proper name. You will have approximately 3 days after receiving addresses to ship your personal art off! You may choose to include your Craftster name on your art when you send. Also, please send pm ONLY to me, Smmarrt when you SEND your piece. When you RECEIVE your piece, send to me, and your partner(s).

Here is the time line broken down:
~ Sign ups: April 28 - May 6
~ Crafting period: Starts NOW through May 6

~ Addresses will be distributed by May 7, 2019
~ You must ship between May 8 - May 11, 2019

Swap Rules:  
~You must post in thread at least once before being accepted into the swap.
~ Please continue to communicate within the thread at least once per week.  
~ No extras please!  Since the only communication will be through this thread, and there will be no discussion among partners, we don't want anyone feeling upset they didn't send an extra!

I finally abandoned one of craftylttlemonkey's flags! It was difficult to choose one. And it's rained a LOT here (yay for rain) so I waited until I knew that the weather would be fine for more than a week.

Here is the note on the back -

Here is the flag with twig and twine added:

And here it is hanging from a cherry tree at Peace Plaza in Japantown in San Francisco:

Sorry for the sideways photos....don't hurt your neck!

I was lucky and spoiled by jemimah - both of our packages arrived on the same day - SEVEN days New Zealand to San Francisco! WOW!!

She sent 4 beautifully painted artifacts and I am overwhelmed by her artistry.

A 6" by 7" piece - watercolor and doodles and amazing everything!

Two bookmarks!

A second watercolor and quote - this may find its way into one of my journals

And a small art journal (funny, I sent one also!)

Thanks so much Kirsten. I can tell you had fun creating all of these items.

I received a bright colorful package from Artmomto5.

First up - a charm for my book bag or backpack with big, bright colorful beads. See the two charms - scissors and a palette.

The bottom piece, a small wood block, has 4 sayings on the 4 sides.

And 2 awesome cards by Claudine Hellmuth, a small notebook, and a positive ATC.

Thanks so much Lori! What a fun package to open.

I also want to finish a quilt - I have had the idea for more than 2 years. I think I made and posted one block in 2017 or 2016 (eeep!)

I want to cull/purge/diminish my massive fabric stash so in order to donate the big pieces, I will trim and make a string quilt.
The quilt on my bed is the first one I ever finished and it is showing its age. It needs repair and refurbishing, but it's so soft and cozy that I hesitate to rehabilitate it.

Another book cover, another journal to make.

I found this at the creative reuse warehouse - Chronicle Books often donates their mock-ups and blank books.

It was just the cover paper and the three pieces of book board. I already covered the spine with muslin before I thought to take photos.

And I want the inside covers to have some wild and crazy fabric - this is what I've selected so far. I might remember some other hidden remnant this weekend.

I will more than likely punch holes in the spine, add grommets and use the pamphlet stitch to bind. I will go back to the creative reuse place this weekend and look for cool stuff to add to it.

I also received from SonjaBoo - the backgrounds are embossed metallic tape with alcohol inks.

Some of my themes were books and reading and the Women's March.

Thanks so much, Erika. Love the envelope and address too!

I received from Maimun, formerly MunLtStmpr.
(Sorry for the sideways pics - editing still not working....)

For books and reading, a "bookmark" that says This is where I slept....

For tea, a tea cup. It's hard to see but there are fibers coming out of the cup to indicate steam!

And one titled "My Masterpiece" with a mirror attached!

Thanks so much, Maimun!
