22  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / any interest in the Aussie christmas card & gift swap again this year? on: September 17, 2008 04:05:24 AM
hi i have previous organized a couple of years running the aussie christmas card and gift swap..

Just wondering if there would be an interest in me organizing again this year? say start signups early in november so we have plenty of crafting time for xmas.

Previous rounds we have sentd a handmade card and small-medium handmade gift inside a large envelope or cd mailer etc. Nothing too big but a nice suprise for xmas.

Crafting would be about 1/2 hour -1 hour craft per item tops.
low costs and small materials outlay usually from your stash.
Its nice to make something for each person depending on how many people we get signed up.

we all usually consider the colours,likes dislikes of each person we send to so they like what they get of course.  we also did other aussie swaps where we precrafted so people could choose something they might like. a bit like shop the swap or the sweat shop swap.

gift ideas can include bookmarks, jewellery, small journals, handmade card sets, headbands, hairpins, zipper pouches, purses/wallets,  small simple tote, hand carved rubber stamps, handmade soap, embroidered hankies, washers, handtowel, teatowel, notebooks...etc..

anyhow if there is interest I will organize a round for this year.

I will include here link to previous rounds:

discussion/signup threads:
2005: got to find link

Love to hear back from other aussies re this swap going ahead this year.

23  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects / machine embroidered handmade journals on: July 28, 2008 03:49:35 AM
This week I made these journals with machine embroidery on the covers.
I used different coloured and patterned papers and used my corner punches inside to make fancy corners on some of them.
Simple joining with ribbons and yarns I liked.  Grin
I am using these for the sweatshopswap15 and for thankyous and xmas gifts i plan to make up some more.
They were fun to make.

these last two are finished with crayon tinting.
thanks for looking!
24  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Colourwash and embroidered quilts (picture heavy!) on: July 18, 2008 01:20:22 AM
Mum and me  have been sewing a lot lately and made some more colourwash quilts.
Mum liked my heart quilts so much she made one to gift to my grandmother for her next birthday to dress up her nursing home bed.
This is the single colourwash heart quilt multi colour but the blue and burgundy seem to have really popped out.

i finally completed the quilting on my pansy colourwash quilt in purples for me!

Next quilt in progress was for my daughter but she hates it, she said pink but apparently that should mean HOT PINK.
so maybe i will keep it for me or gift it or something. such a pity i think its pretty.

thanks for looking!
Mum also made a quilt for my aunty's 60th birthday its a BLUE DIAMOND COLOURWASH QUILT.

She has also just finished a cot quilt for my new nephew to be who is due any day now in fact overdue lol
Here is the clown embroidered quilt.

hope you enjoy what we have been making lately.
hugs cyndiq

29  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / my first atc cards on: April 09, 2008 06:40:41 PM
here are my first atc cards (not sure if this is the right spot to post, mods please pm me the correct thread)


I just had a trip to Victoria another state in Australia, the drought like conditions there really apalled me, every drop of water is precious as its so scarce. so thinking of that i wanted to inspire hope for growth and creation in the first one and a little variation onthe second card but in the same sort of theme but more craft/art related ( i will send this one to my aunty who lives there to inspire her)
I used watercolour paper backed with card for support. I hand painted the background with watercolour paint, add embellishements, stamped images and a little coloured sand and opal dust glitter. freehand sketych drawing a little on the left one.

what do you think?

I am only a beginner at creating atc s and would love some feedback.

thanks cyndiq
