21  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: 12 Days Of Christmas Swap 2007(CLOSED, First Sendout Date Nov 27th) on: October 21, 2007 09:43:51 AM
I am finished with several days of my crafting.  I am very anxious though...I hope my stuff is not viewed as "junk" Sad

Aw! I'm sure I'll love it! Anything someone makes especially for me could never be "junk" Smiley

Did anyone set a budget for this? I am not asking the amount because thats like telling someone how much you paid for a gift, but, just wondering if anyone else though hmm I'll devote so much money to this and then (or including shipping). If so have you stuck to your budget? Because my budget well.... Roll Eyes

I've got a nifty spreadsheet adding up how much I've spent on everything I bought. I'm going to try really hard not to go over a certain amount, and right now I've got a good bit of headroom left for shipping. I'm also using as much as I can from my stash, so that helps a lot.

and Oh my God! I found a giant box of Christmas supplies in my attic that my mom must have put there when I was about 10....don't know if I can or will use everything, but we're talking loooong lengths of christmas fabric, felt, glitter, rhinestones, two holiday home-dec patterns, wreath-making stuff, fabric paint, ribbon...oh MAN, this saves me from another trip to the store!

I did not get to craft tonight because I had to watch my Rockies sweep the D'backs  Wink

I crafted last night....while I watched the Sox lose again to the Indians....I am not a happy camper...but at least it wasn't the Yankees!

Sorry I took so long, it took a while for me to get my packages and then life sort of exploded...you know how it is...

Well, my secret craftster Frozenboogereatr sent me:

For my Medium package, two lovely crocheted scarves! I love crocheted things, especially since I can't let myself learn (tendonitis + repetitive-motion = baaaad situation). I love them both!

For my Large package, I got a "Kiss the Flutist" bag, three music buttons, and (not shown) one of those "Rock is Dead; Long Live Paper and Scissors" Craftster bumperstickers...which promptly went on my blue foot-locker-esque trunk.

Thanks, Frozenboogereatr!

My local fabric store is closing....so like the good little craftster I am...I went and spent waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too much money. Let the crafting begin!

PS. When they tell you that buying the entire remainder of the bolt gets you an extra 5% off....don't listen. It's dangerous...

I am now ridiculously excited simply because my dear partner's daughter and I have the same birthday...Dec. 13! Right in the middle of the swap Smiley

Oh, Look, presents! ...and a ferocious cat...
(Days 12-6 for dyingtolive)

My Days 12-7 from dyingtolive under my undecorated tree- in really cute paper with fun captions on the tags!

On Day 12, "Tis the Season" day, dyingtolive gave to me:
A bunch of Christmas-y stuff! And it's all fabulous. big glittery star ornaments, pen and sticky-pad, a whole set of cookie cutters (which I needed...I'll explain later...), holiday socks!, fun gift tags, 4 etched glass ornaments- pretty! Thanks, Krystle! I hope you like yours as much as I did mine!

On Day 11, "Junk in the Trunk" day, dyingtolive gave to me:
a GIANT mish-mash of papercraft supplies! Which is fabulous because papercrafts are something I'm always wanting to try out but never get to it for one reason or another...and here it all is!
-scrapbooking paper 12x12"...35?! loose sheets and 3 packs of 6 each- everything from colors and stripes to birthday prints (my birthday was thursday) to funny birthday cats to musical-inspired- this is going to last me a while!
-tons of stickers- letters, cat stickers, musical stickers (with a flute! Where'd you find it?!), leaves and hearts, foam shapes, fun quotations, work boots....I love stickers!
-8 decoratively-edge-cut blank cards with envelopes, and 2 white with pink edging cards with envelopes- for me to dress up with all these goodies!
-a bunch of magazine pages and paper things with Chinese characters all over them- some would say it's junk, but I say it's Chinese characters, which I love but find hard to come by!
-a little box of ribbons, brads, rhinestones, and other decorative embellishments (which my cat promptly knocked off the bed...)
-3 decorative red and gold Chinese-style prints- will be going on my wall very shortly!
-a little baggie of fun blank gift tags and other such fun punchouts....mini Uno game cards?! fun!

Thanks, Krystle, this is amazing!

On Day 10, "Mmm...Mmm..." Day, dyingtolive gave to me:
9 recipes and an embroidered apron!
I LOVE the apron! I know I've seen that embroidery pattern before and liked it, just can't remember the designer's name....and the recipes sound very yummy! Though I'll have to do the chicken salad without mayo since I'm allergic....but I bet it'll work out. Thanks Krystle! Time to get cooking! And to get my brother to bend to my will with that cheesecake...muahahahaha!

On Day 9, "Stuck On You" Day, dyingtolive gave to me:
9 awesome marble magnets in a tin!
And the marbles have an iridescent finish, which I just love! They're nice and big too, perfect size for doing these. My 1/2" ones always feel too small. And I love that I got a tin with no lid, because I'm always putting things on my desk or bureau in tins but worry I'll lose the lids because I don't use them...problem solved! Thanks, Krystle, you rock!

On Day 8, "Get Crafty" Day, dyingtolive gave me:
A box full of trimmings!
Somehow I bet I can make it add up to 8, but it's way more than that. Lace, ribbon, rick-rack...all sorts of trimmings, which I never have enough of. Thanks Krystle!
(picture to follow)
On Day 7, "Crazy Day", dyingtolive gave to me:
7 things for my Cat!
That is, 5 felt catnip toys (which she loved), a "cat wand"- a stick with a long fleece ribbon to wave in front of her (endless hours of fun), and a lovely painted picture frame with my cat's name, Arwen, across the top. "Crazy Day" because my cat is CRAZY. She fits in with the rest of my household Smiley

On Day 6, "Keep In Touch" Day, dyingtolive gave me:
Six lovely notecards!
One "happy birthday", one "congratulations", and four for anytime- all lovely. Thanks!

On Day 5, "Reading Rainbow" Day, dyingtolive gave me:
Four bookmarks and a reconstructed journal!
How Krystle knew that I loved Nancy Drew books as a kid AND reading rainbow is beyond me, but she's psychic or something. She reconned the first Nancy Drew book into a blank journal for me...which I am In Love With. Along with it are four beautiful bookmarks, which I actually needed and will use quite a lot. Thanks so much!

On Day 4, "Yummy Day", dyingtolive gave me:
Two kinds of cookies and two rubber baking molds!
MMmmmm.....chocolate cookies and sugar cookies that smell DIVINE...they won't last long around here, trust me. And two rubber molds for (I think) baking a tree-shaped cake and santa-shaped mini-things. Or Jell-O molds? Or for candy? I'm lost but I think whatever they are, they're wicked awesome and will find more than one use! Thanks!

On Day 3, "Black and White Day", dyingtolive gave me:
A T-shirt, a scarf, and lip balm! The T-shirt is from a bumper sticker she saw on my wists..."Support Live Music...Kiss A Flutist"- This may be my new favorite t-shirt...sorry Zildjian shirt, you've been demoted...The scarf is wonderfully fuzzy and black and white, can't wait to use it! And I can NEVER have enough chapstick, these ones look so yummy! Thanks, you're awesome!

On day 2, "Hold Me" Day, dyingtolive gave me:
A fantastic tote bag and pouch for my business cards!
I can always use more tote bags to carry my multiple meals with me, and finally, something to hold my business cards. Thanks!

Krystle, this is fantastic! Several rubber ink stamps, several colors of ink pads, and several canisters of embossing powder, plus the heat tool and instructions. Oh man, now I can *really* get started on my papercrafts...I'll be sending a lot of cards to people this year! This is amazing!

And to top it off, I got a little birthday surprise- Chocolate and Starbursts! My life is now complete.

Thanks, Krystle, you've been such an awesome partner, I love all the stuff you've sent! Have a wonderful Christmas and I hope you enjoy your stuff just as much as I'm enjoying mine!

At long last, I finally got my first package! It's a little crocheted ladybug wristlet-pouch, complete with legs. Ladybugs are my good luck charm Smiley Thanks Secret Craftster!
