Finally, pictures. My package from faemystique arrived Monday evening and the last couple days have been hectic. But check this  out!

Here you can see all the stitching, and beads she added. We had a lot of similar items in our Pinterest- I actually started out with something similar that I wasnt happy with. Faemystique did a much better job than I was doing, so Im glad I switched it up. I also love the fact that it went on an epic road trip with her!

Here is the flag hanging in my room. Its so cheery and colorful.

And here are some bits and bobs she sent along. Looks like the makings of another prayer flag!

Thank you so much for the lovely prayer flag and for hosting this swap! Thank

I just had my popsicle break interrupted by the mail lady with a fantastic package from kittykill.

First up, she stitched and colored a throw pillow with monstera leaves!

Also, an adorable tea towel with the happiest cactuses!

Closeup thumbnails because they are too cute not to.

And fantastic extras - violet seeds, a little pot for a baby plant, pretty coaster, suction cup air plant, and the most perfect book ever about growing plants from window scraps.

Thank you so much!!

I received my package from kartiana yesterday! Boy, did she ever get me!

First up is a set of 3 nesting tidy trays. She must have figured out that my tiny apartment gets cluttered easily and could use some organizational help. The colors are perfect, as is the monstera leaf fabric. These will never get put away! The post its were a little extra that will be used up quickly. I work from home, and I go to school. I would lose my head if I didnt track everything!

Look at these darling totes! Kartiana and I share a love of musical theater. I think its so important for kids to be exposed to the arts; my daughter and I attend several professional musicals a year. She made these coordinating bags for us with our initials on them! Marleys bag is the perfect size to carry her piano music.

Speaking of musicals, we chatted a bit about Wicked. We are going to see it in July, and kartiana has already seen it. She found this amazing book for us. We have a book like this for Hamilton, so Marley knew just what to expect when she saw it. Shes been pouring over it all morning! Underneath the book is the fabric and fabric bags everything was wrapped in. Also, she upcycles all these awesome, perfect envelopes, and I had to share at least one.

Thank you, kartiana! I love everything, and Im so happy to have made a new friend. Especially one who lives so close to me!

4  Re: CLOSED - 2019 Make-A-Friend Revival: Miniature Version SO #2- 5/31 in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by dharma_rebel on: May 22, 2019 10:06:40 AM
There are so many things that Ive made that Im proud of - usually thanks to swaps because they push me to actually finish things, and to do my very best. However, I took some classes in metalsmithing last year and Im SUPER proud of the things I can make with metal and a saw.

I made both of these rings - although I could use a refresher course in stone setting.

Im pretty handy with a jewelers saw, though.

As far as getting to know my partner, I feel like I have been a bit neglectful. Weve messaged back and forth a few times, but we are both busy moms. It feels like life gets in the way a lot. But, Im having so much fun crafting for Kartiana, and we are now friends on Facebook. Plus, she lives in a city not far from me, that I visit a few times a month, and we have a lot in common. So, I feel like our friendship wont end with this swap, and that we have the potential to meet in person someday!  Smiley

Gorgeous embroidery from kittykill, as usual. There is something amazing to me about hexagons. I love the honeycomb behind the pattern.

The painted egg by endymion is incredible!! Is there a name for the technique? It looks like it was fun to make, although I doubt mine would turn out as bright and detailed.

I love Mandykayes art. I follow her on Instagram so I get to see it often. The cactus are super fun. I would totally frame that.

The ATC from dontneedaclassroom is cool, too. This is another craft I could never hope to do well. Of course, I love the use of mixed metallics. Is it edged with copper tape? So awesome.

I received on Friday from kartiana and it was a welcome package after a long week. Im just now posting pics. Im coming up on the end of my semester and I had to write a 10 page paper and edit 2 other 10 papers over the weekend. Now I just have 2 shorter papers and an hour long presentation to get through in the next 10 days.

I will get through this with help from the beautiful midori notebook kartiana made. I absolutely love the turquoise and mustard color combo. Im a bit of a bullet journal freak (I couldnt keep organized otherwise) and we refer to these as travelers notebooks. The pocket size is great to keep with me so I can jot down ideas when I dont have my bujo. I also received a custom deck of playing cards featyuring the Metolius River in Central Oregon. Kartiana grew up in Camp Sherman, which is on the river. I loved reading her letter and getting to know her. We have so much in common!

Im hoping to wrap up her package today and get it sent out tomorrow. My kid stayed home from school today, so that should make it easier to get finished!

I received from Quaggy yesterday. She is the most thoughtful partner and really crafted to my tastes perfectly. My initials are REF

R is for Reclaimed driftwood hanger (I think thats what the R was for. My mom was helping clean up as I tore into the package, so all the tags went to the recycle bin)

E is for Enchanted hanger/mobile. OMG this is so incredible and so me. Im going to actually hang it in my kitchen window for the world to see. And you get multiple photos, its so cool. I just love all the crystals and agate slices.

F is for flag. Quaggy made me a prayer flag based on my love of cactus!

And extras! Mini tarot cards, cactus charms and patch, a cactus planner (that my kid claimed, but I wont complain if it gets her organized), Red Hots, Extra gum and Fruit snacks!

She also claimed that she managed to do this from stash. I totally want to go visit her and play with her supplies. Thank you so much, Quaggy! I love everything and I cannot wait to get everything hung up!!!

I finished my own flag up today. This gallery is so inspiring. I will admit to being particularly inspired by the flag Smmarrt made for abbeeroad.  I chose patience for my theme.

I got my flag from crafty-becky yesterday! She chose my theme free. I love the blue on yellow - one of my favorite color combos - and the teeny tiny bird and tiny perfect stitching. And now I cant get Lynyrd Skynyrd out of my head.  Cheesy

And heres a closer shot of the bird so you can see what I mean about tiny, perfect stitches.
