oh wow!  thanks...be sure to take lots of pics!

I made another journal cover...the printed heart is from edelc...I used some of my favorite tattoo fabric for the lining.  The closure is glitter elastic...who knew there was such a thing!? Grin The background is tweed linen, my favorite fabric to work with.

This is a journal made of things sent to me by various Craftster friends...and oddly enough, I have met all three of them!  First up, the mushroom print was made by edelc...it was the inspiration for the entire journal...Next, the tiny hexies were made by Averia in the recent EPP Hexie Swap...and finally, the lining cover and trim was fabric given to me by MissingWillow! The background fabric is linen from some curtains I made years ago.

I made it to fit a composition notebook (my favorite kind)...I go through them a lot...I made some book marks to help me find my place and used simple ribbon to keep it closed when I need to...This is not a journal that I carry around, so it will mostly live on my nightstand until it is full...

Thanks to my friends for "helping" me make my journal!

We did a Craftster Trading Card swap in May...I would encourage anyone who would like to get to know other wonderful Craftster members a bit better, to join this simple and fun swap.  I will be organizing it after school gets on its way and before the holiday craziness begins!

Anyway, I never posted the card I made...we had a loose theme of childhood pictures, so I dug up a pic of me when I was six years old and voted Little Miss Sunshine 1960! ha ha My winning smile and bad as personality apparently fooled won over the judges!!

We had to make 22 of them...but receiving these little bits of mail every few days was awesome!!!

I missed this swap so Averia was kind enough to make me one!

Her stitching is so lovely...and, she used some of her shibori dyed fabric that she made at out meet up in Canada last year! The little charm got flipped in the picture...it says "calm"...something I need right about now!

Thank you...I won't miss the next round!

Yours is on its way to you!

I received some of my goodies while I was traveling in July...I love this swap...

My notebook from Misocci74 is just so lovely...and perfect to keep track of winter reading lists and notes! I love the color combo...my bedroom is blue with tan!

I also received my map journal from greybird...complete with some cute stamps and a magnifier page!  I still haven't figured out how it is made...looks quite complicated...this is going to be my journal for my next road trip, which is in two weeks!

I was going to save these pendants from gala_apples for Christmas presents to my nieces, but they want them for school...guess I will be a good Aunt and let them have them...lol...the oldest one wants the zebra and the two ten year olds are going to share the other two...they are perfect for the outfits I just bought them!

Finally, from our organizer, GatorWrangler, I received the most beautiful notecards. I am not going to be able to use them like I thought...ha ha...I am going to have to start asking for "ugly" notecards so I can send them off!!!

This one is my absolute favorite...it is stunning!

Thanks, everyone!

I finally got some pictures of my brand new stash of hexie fabrics and goodies...

First, from Averia, who kindly sent me a rainbow of hexies...the tiny ones are just too cute and I have already started a project where I am using those puppies... Cheesy

Next up, from Aspenwall...I want to live in your fabric room...wow...love these!

The little bird fabrics are my favorite in this batch...I might use them for something besides hexies... Roll Eyes

Immaculata also sent me some fab fabrics and a postcard from where she lives!!  I collect these!

These are the lovelies Eamea sent!

Everyone was kind enough to send some duplicates of some of the fabrics, opening up a lot of crafting possibilities...and look!...see how all of our fabrics work together!... Shocked

This might be my next mug rug...

Oh, these birds are just too sweet...

I bet hubby likes those!  I burned my arm in the oven the other day and decided I needed to make some mitts...thanks for the info on what to put inside...

CLM...that little pea pod is so cute...and I have peeked at some of the other little things you have been making...like those adorable little mushroom houses!  You have been yarning!

I went to my sister's house for a visit and she promptly put my sewing skills to use...she had a huge mega king-sized bedspread and wanted me to cut it down...so I did...out of the fabric I cut, I made her two king size pillow shams and two decorator pillows...I guess that is fair trade for feeding me and letting me sleep in her guest room for a week! Grin

Oh, I nearly forgot...she went to Machu Picchu in Peru and brought back some baby alpaca yarn...love the colors and softness!

I also gave her an apron I made for Habitat for Humanity...they do auctions and reward volunteers so I try to donate things to them..I have five more in various stages of completion...the fabric is construction themed!

A couple of healthy food items...

Egg muffins with zucchini and cherry tomatoes

Chicken Cobb Salad (I am doing Keto so good fats are ok...processed carbs are not...and BACON!  yum!)
