My first swap has been completed. The Happy Scrap Swap is where everyone was put in groups of 3. Each person sent a sandwich bag full of scraps to both of their partners. In turn all several small items were made for the partners form the scraps, and the goodies were sent. I have finally sent out my packages for my partners. I did however send swaps to the wrong person. She was very kind to actually make me some goodies and send them back to me, though she didn't have to :0) Thank You Heather! Thank you to all the ladies who participated. I have cooked up a new swap idea. Keep on the lookout for it in the new year. Here is what I have received thus far....By the way I have been playing with Photoshop Elements, it's great!
OK, now back to my swap gifts from upper left and then going clockwise; A new pincushion, Fabric flower magnet, key chain fob; Bird ornament, Stuffed owl, and zippered makeup bag; Margarita Doll (Doodle Girl); Bookmark, House Ornaments, Scarf, tissue cozy, and Needle book.
The doll was not part of the swap it was a gift to my daughter from my friend Abbie. Isn't she cute? Her name is Margarita. I will definitely be trying my hand at some dolls as soon as Christmas is over. There are some really great patterns on Etsy. Like Bit of Whimsy Prims, and
Herbst (which I have already purchased), and don't forget Wee Wonderfuls (I have these too). These come in PDF form which is awesome. I don't like to wait for patterns because I am a bit impatient. PDF's are great, you get them within 24 hours, and you can print them out :0) For the E-Book/PDF's that have more than 10 pages you can usually upload the file to Staples, Office Depot, at Kinko's. The prices aren't too bad, and your not waisting all of your ink!
I love my stuff, thanks again. I hope my partners like what I made them :0)
Also, I took a poll in regards to my website, and seems like the textured blue is the winner...It was my fave too...Thanks to those who took the time to vote, I appreciate it. I will be moving froward and working on finishing the site....eventually :0)
Well I need to go get my butt in gear. It is my 30th B-day today!! My friend has offered to watch my children so my hubby and I can go out on a date. Gosh, I can't remember the last time he and I went out together kid less...It's un heard of. Hopefully we make it home safe, it decided to snow today :0( Everyone have a good one. Stay warm!
