21  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Common Ground round 5 GALLERY! on: April 26, 2017 03:03:14 PM
I received from my partner Audio today, check out the goods!
She crafted to our likes about owning multiple cats(we both have 2 solid greys), love for aliens and Pixar. She did a great job! My 4yr old actually claimed the pixar plaque right away lol.
 I scored one her creative custom necklace pendants, check out that cute lil guy!


Thank you again, can't wait for my box to arrive to you now!

Eeeeek Averia, she's too precious! Congrats! How much did she weigh? Was she ontime? Hope she was delivered without complications too. Sorry, I like baby details. Wink

Hey Averia, check your pms. Wink

Be glad to have you onboard Allons-y! I'm tempted to claim Averia again but I'd love to see your wishlist too!

I must be doing something right with my first-time attempted item when hubby goes into my craft room and says "Why is there a ____ on your table??" *thinking I went off the deep end as its not my typical craft*. I excitedly replied "Oh really! You recognized what it was??!" lol.

So I love pushing my creative bounderies by trying new crafts and techniques with each new swap and this swap has encouraged me to do so aswell. I'm totally excited for my partner to see this unique and first-time-attempted _______ I just finished today. I know she definitely doesn't have anything like it! Then I'm half way done the 2nd item, then to think of a 3rd and the extras.
Geez you people work so fast, ya'll making the rest of us look bad. Wink

Anne- That top looks great, I enjoyed reading Calvin and hobbs growing up. Such a classic! Also Averia is right about the claims. I was tied up planning my boys first birthday which ironically fell on Easter sunday this year. So planning both events while trying to keep them separate kept me at bay.

fishstix43- Glad surgery went well for you, I love playing volleyball too but I kept spranging my darn, weak ankles.

Averia- My mommy brain totally forgot to take pics of when I sent you the baby pkg from the previous swap(can't even recall what I made now, my memory is that muffled!) AND also forgot you didn't post pics either until you mentioned it, ha ha! I'm VERY pumped that you claimed me for a stenciled shirt sooooo I suppose all is forgiven. Wink
