Here I present to you my wonderful lovely swap goodies from Kartiana:
She made me BEAUTIFUL paper flower garland from a vintage book, and 3 map themed ATCs!
Here is an action shot of the goodies: (I put them up around the map in my room)

Here is a close up of the garland:

Here is a close up of the ATCs:

Here is an extra zoomed in of the All Roads Lead Home ATC and why it is my favorite: (She put a cut out of Florida on it that even says Tallahassee, which is where I live.)


I love personal swaps! I knit and make jewelry mostly, but do a few other crafts as well. PM me. =)

My lovely owls arrived! Homerof2 did some great crochet work and the magnet idea is great. Thank you!

Just finished the patchwork bucket for Candace and pm'd the d/c info to her and our lovely hostess.

Ohhhh! Love the owl magnets, the color is great Homerof2!

The map ATC's are awesome too! The book garland is fun and it looks good on your map. Nice work Kartiana Smiley

AmandaBL your journal is so cool! I love the texture on the cover! And the pages are so neat!

Love the hoopla Cindy and the fabric. Love to see what you end up making with it Jexxican.

Candace I love the towels and pot holders you sent to Kartiana. The rick-rack looks awesome on the towels Smiley

and whooohoo on the hoopla clock! What a fun idea!

AmandaBL would love to see the hoopla that Noodle bug sent you up in your salon. Sorry you were under the weather, hope you are feeling better! Im glad you like the apron and crocheted cleaners. Twas fun crafting the apron for you!

Dessadoll's peacock hoopla is way cool too! Do you play the recorder Ffrogg?? I remember that from grade-school lol.

such wonderful work in all these goodies:)

time to eat supper, way late of course, and then start stalking for the June OPS

I teach elementary school music.  My 3rd-5th graders all learn how to play recorder.  And they're trying so very hard to keep up with me.  Very few of them can.  lol

I'm worried about my two packages going to Canada.  I messed up the postal code on one of them so it may take a long while to get there.  But the other one went two weeks ago...  Undecided  Sending out my last package tomorrow to Jexxican!  Cheesy  Not sure if I'll be joining the June around or not due to packages in limbo.  I have some other stuff going on anyway.  Smiley

I had fun doing this swap and I hope my package gets to AmandaBL quick. I'll keep an eye on this post to make sure it arrives and watch the email, but I won't be joining next month. Maybe later in the summer I'll pop in again.

My gorgeous new laptaop case arrived at work today.... I saw my colleague doing some serious eyeing up while I opened it, so I think for safety's sake I'll be using this for my home laptop!!

and a detail shot of the fastening and ribbon embellishment

isn't it beautiful

annnnnnnnd..... extras!
some patches to go on my blanket (I have a fleecy that I keep in my locker for when I need a nap at work*, with all different patches and badges sewn on, I love adding to it), and a pendant- it's gorgeous, my photo does it NO justice at all

*excuse me while I love my job

oh, and the final thing.... another patch for my blanket, made in a different style - Grab a coffeee didn't realise I live in the UK when she made it, it did make me smile Cheesy I'm just gonna claim it as 'a package form mainland Europe' and sew it onto my blankie any way Cheesy the little cartoon is so cute

I'm always up for swapping hexies, felt badges,or TM patches (or anything, really!) - PM me Cheesy

Hi all!  I got 2 packages the day after we got home from our 10 day vacay to Disney World.  And 2 great packages at that!

From Homerof2 I got an awesome reversable bag.

And another hoop for my wall.

The hoop is already hanging, and the bag has books in it from my trip to the library today!

And from Onyxnox, I got to amazing name tag clips for at work.  She said she made a mistake on one and wasn't happy so she made a second.  Honestly I can't see anything wrong with either.

She also send some metal clasps from my wishlist!

I work tomorrow night, and I can't decide which name badge to wear first.  I may have to just flip a coin  Wink

Thanks again for the packages ladies!  I love everything you sent!


I am always up for a personal swap!

Oh my word, Dessadoll, you are so spoiled, but you are so worth it! Both of those ladies did amazing! Sweet!
And, as always, I am super impressed with the package from Grab a coffee.
Magnet owls from Homerof2? I may have to steal that idea.
Kartiana, how special and sweet and personal that package!
Wow, ladies, I love organizing this swap for you all. You all amaze me.

Vikki has got her package in time - I should look after claims in Europe, because I hate waiting for the postal services! Cheesy
That laptop case is a real custom one: when I've got the fabrics, I wanted to make one for myself too, but after I worked hours on Vikki's one, I said: no more ever! That was the hardest thing what I ever created for someone else! Cheesy
My only question is: is you laptop fits in?
About the others: yea, I messed up the addresses. Smiley My pictures from the small ones:

Dessadoll's stuffs are awesome, I really like the colors of the bag, and the hoop... omg! Cheesy The nametags are cute as well, didn't saw such a thing yet. So lovely!
