3  M&M Minis Tube Swap? in New Swap Theme Ideas by lilacprint on: March 21, 2011 04:27:42 PM

A mix between the Pringles can swap and the matchbox swap! Decorate an M&M Minis tube (which will require eating them, yum!), and fill with crafting goodies!! I'd love to host this as my first swap. Tell me what you think! Wink

4  My First Diaper Cake! in Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies by lilacprint on: March 19, 2011 06:49:13 AM

Here's a diaper cake I made for my sister's baby shower last week.

The inside is make from Luvs newborn diapers wrapped around a bottle of baby powder. The tiers are wrapped with sports themed receiving blankets, and the bottom tier was then covered in baby clothes and bibs of the same theme. Add some ribbon and toys, voila!

PS: Scored the adorable sparkly blue wire ribbon from the Dollar Tree Easter section. Even baby boys need some sparkle! Ha ha ha.

Pinupmommy couldn't find her camera, so here are some pictures I took of what I sent.  Wink

Everything all together, a stenciled GH tee, a Steve G magnet, and a 'Ghost Hunters magnetic poetry kit':

A closeup on the magnets- it's kind of hard to see, but they're all words and phrases commonly used on Ghost Hunters (along with a few random ones too  Tongue). Ex: Tango, EMF detector, what the frig?:

And, finally, a better look at the tee since it's folded in the first pic:  Tongue

So glad you liked everything, Pinupmommy!  Smiley

I received my wonderful package from IHearTreesCry yesterday! I absolutely love everything.

A Group shot of it it all!

A picture frame and little dish made from clay (?), decorated with real coffee beans! They're really neat looking and still smell like coffee! The picture frame is pretty impressive and constructed really nicely.

Some really nice smelling Vanilla Coffee Body Scrub, made with real coffee grounds! According to the tag, it will even redistribute fat cells and decrease the formation of cellulite, it's a miracle!  Cheesy

A mug (which was filled with tea packets, a couple of Starbucks coupons, and a few tealight candles) and a fantastic mug cozy! The cozy is really cute & chunky, and I love the color.

Oh, and I was quite pleased that the mug she sent matches the Starbucks holiday travel mug that I already had! They make quite a cute couple, don't you think?

Some really adorable notecards. Check out the coffee drinking sheep! I love sheep, especially the ones with cute purple mugs.

And lastly, a little group shot of the coffee, tea, tea bag rest, and EARFLAP HAT that she sent me! I was so happy to see that she sent a bag of my favorite coffee, along with two others (the two smaller bags came in a box with little chocolate wafers to eat along with the coffee). I'm also really exited to try some of the Tazo tea she sent. The hat has to be the coolest item of the bunch, inspired by one I have on my wists. It's really cute and well made, 'I am in awe of your crocheting skills', IHearTreesCry!  Wink
Thank you so much!!!

Yay, looks like I'm first! Look at the adorable package stacysews sent me, she's such a great swap partner!

Here's everything all together. I gave her the idea of a 'winter wonderland' theme (I love penguins, and snowflakes are so cute for winter!), and she nailed it! She decorated the can with cute penguin stickers and made three matching glass marble magnets.  She also sent a beautiful satiny clutch purse with glittery snowflakes and a pretty silver button (I absolutely love it!), an adorable fabric headband (very well made! so cute!), a sewn bird ornament (did I tell you this girl can sew?!), a really neat swirly glass ornament, a snowflake ornament painted by her daughter, an awesome pin cushion in what looks to be Amy Butler fabric, some bath beads, a silver bracelet with a snowflake charm, and some Hershey's ' Sticks' candy (my favorite!).

Here's a better picture of the pincushion & the magnets (I stuck them on the lamp by my computer). Oh, and doesn't the bracelet look cute?!

Some closeups of the clutch. It's so nice! The lining matches the headband  Smiley.

The first picture didn't show the cute snowflake ornament her daughter painted very well, so here's a better look at it with the bird ornament too. You can see the swirly ornament in the background, it's so pretty!
I absolutely love everything you sent, Stacy! THANK YOU!!!  Smiley
