2  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / A New Matchbox Swap? on: March 06, 2019 04:20:22 AM
I don't think we've done one of these for quite a while -- altering and filling a matchbox with crafty goodness.  Any interest? This is usually a pretty inexpensive swap to make and mail!
3  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / CLOSED & COMPLETED -I Love the '80s Swap (Sendout extended! Monday, April 8) on: February 26, 2019 04:21:10 AM

Details of swap:

The '80s were a magical time for many of us. If we weren't wearing Jordache jeans and Roo sneakers, we were crimping our hair, collecting stickers and watching Saturday morning cartoons. If you loved Care Bears, Smurfs, He-Man (and a gazillion other shows), remember Max Headroom and have ever shouted, "I want my MTV!", then this is probably the swap for you. (And if you weren't around for the 80s but totally love the style, you're still welcome to swap. Cheesy) Think rainbows, roller skates, teddy bears, Lisa Frank... the possibilities are endless.

This will be a three point swap, so one small and two mediums. Or three smalls. However you want to do the math. You and your partner are welcome to do extras if you both agree!

4  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / I love the 80s swap? on: February 09, 2019 07:23:23 AM
I'm a kid of the 80's, and I loved every moment of it: stickers in every store, amazing toys, music that ranged from New Kids on the Block to Guns and Roses, and rainbows, unicorns and hearts on everything.

And lately, I find myself buying any craft supply that brings back that nostalgia. Papers with roller skates on it. Rainbow stationary. Bubblegum charms. Anything with pink, blue or neons. Anything that says "I want my MTV!"

Are there any other 80s kids out there who would like a fun, nostalgic swap? If so, bust out your Trapper Keeper of ideas and let's get started!

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!

7  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / How Do I Love Thee? With Paper Mache on: February 13, 2018 10:23:55 AM
I made this paper mache heart for Annchen in the mixed media heart swap. I have been itching to play with some paper mache lately, so this was extra fun to put together!



I used a piece of cardboard as the base, then layered the paper mache on over that. I poked holes for the hanger, and let it dry overnight. The heart is painted with Golden liquid acrylics, which are my new favorite paints ever.



The poem is one of my favs by Elizabeth Barrett Browning it was in an old book in my stash that is now used for craft projects.



I left the back plain but colorful so it can be reversible.

Thanks for checking it out!

8  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / Snarky Valentine -- Hot Bob on: February 07, 2018 07:38:06 AM
As part of the "Be My Snarky Valentine" swap, I made this little shrine for my partner, rackycoo.

Just try to restrain yourself, ladies.



When Bob starts baking those cakes -- or doing any form of cooking, really -- he's a total chick magnet.

Here's a side view:


The back, sides and inside backing are covered with a red/white harlequin patterned paper. Pink dresden edging is around the, uh, edges. Red heart sequiny-bling stickers were added to each side. And a Japanese cake eraser ended up being the perfect accent for the top.

I also sent along a little card for rackycoo to share with a sweetheart. (The photos were taken in my dark craft room, unfortunately. But you'll get the idea.) Check out these two crazy kids!


And the sentiment inside:


Thanks for looking!
