3  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / M&M Minis Tube Swap? 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  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / My First Diaper Cake! 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.

5  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Wanted: Supplies for Breast Cancer fundraising! on: March 16, 2009 08:23:07 AM
As a participant in the Breast Cancer 3-Day Walk benefitting Susan G. Komen for the Cure and National Philanthropic Trust, I have committed to raising a considerably large of funds for the cause. Aside from personal donations, I will be teaming up with my sister (a fellow walker) to collect smaller donations through cookie and t-shirt sales, as well as passing out $1.00 awareness ribbons.

Here's where you can help...

I know a lot of us craftsters tend to 'hoard' our supplies, and I'm always willing to spread the wealth of a good cause! If you have any of the following, and are interested in making a contribution, please let me know!! Here's what I need:

- Pink ribbon
- Safety pins
- Cellophane bags
- Cardstock, tags
- Containers for donations (small buckets, etc)

... and any other 'pink' supplies you'd be interested in donating! (these don't have to be brand new!)

I know these supplies are relatively cheap, but every little bit counts-- and if someone has any extra just lying around, I'd love to see that go to use before going out to spend on new supplies!

P.s. Here's a link to my personal fundraising page, if you'd like to take a look:
6  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Magnetic Poetry Swap? on: January 12, 2009 06:44:33 AM
Okay, so I have a thing for magnetic poetry (http://flickr.com/search/?q=magnetic+poetry). I see it on someones fridge, and I just can't resist. Not only does it provide endless amusement (I joke), but it's super fun, cheap & easy to make a set. It's also very easy to tailor the words to fit someones interests/personality, so we suggest themes to our partner.

A couple of how-tos, even though it's awfully self explanatory:


I'd like to organize, anyone interested?
