Details of swap:
Let's show some love for mixed media! In this swap, we'll each be creating ONE mixed media heart that is no larger than 6" or so in size. (You can cheat a little, just check with your partner.) Just big enough to look amazing, but small enough to create in a short turn around -- and hopefully keep postage costs at a minimum! This swap has three weeks for crafting so participants can receive their heart in time for Valentine's Day.

Again, this swap is for ONE heart -- but if you and your partner decide on extras, that is fine!

What can I use to create my heart?
You can use paper, fabric, wood, wool, canvas, paper clay, paper mache, glass... whatever inspires you!

What should my heart look like?
Follow your heart! Maybe yours is an altered canvas, or a mini shrine. It might be a tiny quilt, a gorgeous stuffie or a lovely needle felted creation. Or maybe you make a metal or glass piece to wow your partner. The possibilities are endless!

3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Christmas Spirit Snarky lady ornament on: January 04, 2018 09:02:25 AM


I made this gal for Onyxnox in the recent Snarky Christmas swap. As you can see, the snark is strong with this one. Grin How else do you get through the holidays than with a little "holiday spirit?"

Ive had this chip board ornament kit for some time, and was waiting for the perfect project. Its a bit larger than most ornaments I normally make, but its light weight, so I thought it would work out. I used various papers and ephemera to decorate. I found the holly bits at Hobby Lobby -- they feel very vintage and "White Christmas" to me.



Heres the back:


Thanks for looking! Hope you enjoyed some holiday spirits yourselves!

4  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Be My Snarky Valentine on: January 04, 2018 07:46:53 AM


Following the end of the Snarky Christmas swap, a few of us swappers discussed that it might be fun to have a Snarky Valentine swap. After all, what's Valentine's Day without a little tongue-in-cheek humor?

This would be another small swap, where you'd send your partner a small, snarky valentine related item (an ornament, magnet, mini shrine, necklace, etc.) and, of course, a snarky valentine card. Anything extra would be totally optional for you and your partner.

Any takers? Cheesy If there's interest, I'll get sign ups going by next week, and send outs should be ready for the first week in February.

Details of swap:
We're getting to the "it's hard to find time to craft because I'm cleaning, cooking and shopping for the holidays" season and that just sort of brings out the snarky housewife in all of us. Lets make a snarky ornament to hang upon our tree to acknowledge our hard work and need for another bottle of chardonnay!

This swap requires ONE ornament be sent to your partner. This will be a quick and dirty swap, just like a good martini. The only real rule is that your ornament is made with love, care and lots of snark.


While not required (and applicable only where age appropriate), you are totally encouraged to enjoy a good cocktail while crafting. You know, for science. Cheesy

7  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / It's a Snarky, Snarky Christmas Ornament Swap? on: October 27, 2017 04:29:52 AM


I know we're getting to the "it's hard to find time to craft because I'm cleaning, cooking and shopping for the holidays" season, but that just sort of brings out the snarky housewife in me. And that makes me feel like we all need a snarky ornament to hang upon our tree to acknowledge our hard work and need for another bottle of chardonnay!

I'm proposing a quick, easy ornament swap -- one ornament, one partner, lots of snark. We'd be mailing no later than the first week of December. If there's interest, I'll try to get sign ups up and running by next week!
8  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Hedwig Paper Clay Owl on: August 08, 2017 02:54:07 AM


I made this little guy for my partner in the bird, bee and butterfly swap. He is inspired by something from her Pinterest board, but of course I can't find the link now. Anyway, he is made from paper clay and painted with acrylic paints, and is somewhere between 3-4" tall.



Thanks for looking!

9  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Gelli Print Rainbow Heart on: August 04, 2017 05:46:22 AM


I've been doing a lot of gelli printing and painting on random papers lately, which is really addictive. And because it's so addictive, my stack of papers has been getting quite high and really needed to be used somewhere. I came across a $4 dollar paper mache heart at Michaels last weekend and realized it was the answer to my problem!



Using a 1" circle punch (honestly, that thing is the best craft investment I have ever made -- I use it a LOT), I went to town on my papers, selecting different colors for the look I was going for.



Then, using some gel medium and starting at the bottom of the heart, I began to adhere circles in sort of a fish scale pattern. I decided I wanted a rainbow look, so I went through the colors accordingly and punched extra circles when I needed them.


Here's a look at a few of the papers I was playing with for this project.




After I adhered my circles, I went over the entire heart again with a layer of gel medium to seal it all down. In total, the project only took a few hours and used up a bit of my stash. And it's super happy -- I have a giant rainbow heart to gaze at whenever I want! Cheesy

Thanks for looking!

10  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Button holder hoopla on: April 02, 2017 07:32:20 AM
I seem to keep accumulating button/pins for some reason, but never wear them. I decided to display them in my craft room, and finally figured out and easy way to do so -- with a hoopla!



I painted the hoop white, then grabbed some  lime green fabric that I have had forever and used that for the background. Then I hot glued a bright blue beaded trim around the edges for an accent.



After that, I attached the buttons and still have some room to grow! An easy-peasy project that uses up some stuff I had kicking around and helps me organize. I'm enjoying it.



Here it is with its crafty friends. Thanks for looking!
