Everyone participating, make sure you check your PM Inbox- I need your addresses to give to your partners! Please and thanks! :)

If you haven't received your partner yet from me it may be because I haven't received their information yet. ;) Some PMs went out just now so take another peak!

Thanks everyone! :D

Thank you so much April for hosting and putting all this together!!

Jacque
01-17-2013, 05:52 PM
yes thank u so much!

ok a question as i know how this is run in real life so gonna check here. it says our PARTNER...do we know who each other is or NOT? don't wanna mess up :)

mamaape
01-17-2013, 06:35 PM
No, all partners are different. I guess I could have picked a different word, oops. Every person has a different partner...recipient. So you have person A, but person A might have person X. Make sense?

And it's a SECRET! Don't share with your person or tell anyone else! Surprises are so much better when it's a... surprise! :D

Jacque
01-17-2013, 06:45 PM
got it...that's what i thought but the partner part threw me off...YAY off to work :)

mamaape
01-21-2013, 12:12 AM
Okay Gals, EVERYONE should have their recipient. Remember it's a secret! :) Happy crafting!

Jacque
01-21-2013, 12:54 AM
i made myself a beautiful gift!!! LOL after i was done i realized the cost to ship it so it looks the same when it got there was too much LMAOOOO so i'm off on another one :)

I am about ready to mail mine out, one more thing left to make. We can reveal ourselves to the person we are sending to, correct? Like if I am including a card in the package, I can say who it is from.

mamaape
01-21-2013, 09:07 PM
Oh yes, please do! But ONLY when sending your package include something revealing yourself. :)
We don't want anyone to know ahead of time. ;) :)
That way once we start receiving we can post here and say who we received it from. :D

Jacque
01-22-2013, 01:40 AM
So as i said i have a full blown scrap store...not kidding. However, when we bought our new home i was so into digi and with my health issues then i didn't do much else. so good news...i'm organizing everything during this AND finding things i forgot i had!!! Bad news...I have at least one box in the shed (NONE of my craft stuff was suppose to go there EVER) or has been stolen by my exbest friend where i had temporarily stored stuff (i am praying its in the shed) this is the box with ALL my expensive tools...ACK!

Sarah
01-23-2013, 12:04 AM
I'm on the hunt for projects. NONE of the stores really have anything in stock. They have more EASTER than Valentines. Walmart was JUST putting stuff out for V Day on Saturday (and like half an aisle was done :O)

Sarah
01-29-2013, 10:05 PM
Mine is waiting. It's packed and ready but I'm not sure if I'm going to send it off with the hubs with stamps, or if I'll need to stop at the PO and mail it that way.

ScrapinMama
01-29-2013, 10:11 PM
I have everything to get mine done...just need to get sick kiddos off my lap!! Worse case they can sit with hubby over the weekend so I can make and I'll mail Saturday. But I'm praying they are better before that!!

sladd79054

krystlbear

I just received my craft in the mail. I LOVE it.

Sarah
02-01-2013, 04:45 PM
I can't mail mine until Monday. Too dang cold to go outside, and I need more than just a few stamps to mail it. :'(

krystlbear
02-01-2013, 04:48 PM
Should I post a picture of what I got in here and who sent it to me or wait?

missdamsel
02-01-2013, 04:50 PM
Post what you received and who sent it!!!

krystlbear
02-01-2013, 04:59 PM
I absolutely love what I got. Julie (Juliemomof4) made it. It's my only Valentine's Decoration, and I'm currently trying to decide where to display it.

I mailed mine today, but realized I didn't put anything in the box other than the gift itself. I didn't put a note...nothing! I'm a goof. I had to alter a box I had to send it out since I wasn't finding the size box I wanted. Once I did that, I taped it up and went to the post office before ANOTHER day passed by.

Sarah, that is beautiful!! Great job, Barb!! That is really a labor of love to wrap all the yarn!! And the flowers, gorgeous!

nutsaboutgabe
02-05-2013, 09:35 PM
You're too cute Sarah.

Thanks Em. The yarn wrapping was time consuming for sure, but relaxing at the same time. The flowers were a fun, new challenge for me. I enjoyed learning how to make them.

Seriously these are gorgeous! Wish I had gotten in on this. . . oh wait that's right I'm not that talented ;) I LOVE it all anyway! I may have to stretch myself and get myself involved in the next one. . . there will be a next one before too terribly long right? :)

nutsaboutgabe

You are talented! If you said short on time...I'd believe that. :)

Fabulous wreath, Barb! I'm way to anal to wrap all that yarn. I'd be trying to lay each lap around the form perfectly and then drive myself totally insane in the process. :36_6_1: One of my former creative team members makes wreaths like these and sells them on Etsy and they are gorgeous. I like your design with the fabric flowers instead of yarn flowers. More colorful and adds another dimension of texture. Nice job!

Mine was mailed yesterday! I started Monday trying to get it mailed and was successful finally yesterday. Will post about that saga later! ;)

Completely apologizing right now to my secret valentine partner...I had my stuff all done this weekend and hubby volunteered to take it to the post office Monday morning. I got in his car last night to take the kids to soccer and guess what's still sitting on the front seat??? I am taking it to the post office this morning!

Sarah
02-06-2013, 04:35 PM
I just dropped mine off today. $2.92 to ship it, which was very nice :D Can't beat that price!!

sladd79054
02-06-2013, 09:18 PM
Mine was inexpensive as well because I was able to ship it as a book but it will just take forever to get to where it is going although it has been about a week now so she should get it any time I would think.

missdamsel
02-07-2013, 09:33 PM

We are doing them like once a quarter Ginger. And I assume with as sick as April has been she won't be hosting. I do not mind hosting if no one volunteers, maybe a mothers day swap??

I received mine in the mail today all the way from Portugal, it is so pretty. I will post a picture later one, today has just been crazy.

YAY Lisa!!! Wow, it was super fast! I sent it last week! I had a crazy week last week with no time to drop you a line here in this post to let you know I've mailed mine! And now I was just about to post a little teaser here of what I've sent, and a translation of the message in the embroidery and I'm surprised because you already received it! Awesome!!

The embroidery is a typical one from Portugal with a friendship message.
The message says: Friendship is the most important thing in life
I've made the crocheted part! ;)

And i'm sorry I didn't put a message inside, but I was planning to buy a postcard from Portugal when I went to the post office, but I felt so bad when I just realized they didn't sell postcards anymore, as they used to...Ugh... That's why I wrote "Happy Valentine's day!" in the envelope! :(
Anyway, I'm glad you liked it! :)

I didn't received my valentine's craft yet, but I will let you know when it reached my mailing box!!

And i'm sorry I didn't put a message inside, but I was planning to buy a postcard from Portugal when I went to the post office, but I felt so bad when I just realized they didn't sell postcards anymore, as they used to...Ugh... That's why I wrote "Happy Valentine's day!" in the envelope! :(
Anyway, I'm glad you liked it! :)

I didn't received my valentine's craft yet, but I will let you know when it reached my mailing box!!

Now that Kathy has her wreath I can share my woe is me story! I knew right away what I wanted to do. I bought the stuff and got it home and it hit me that they way I had planned WOULDN'T WORK!! Yikes now what to do. SO I figured it out and got it done. Turned out ok. (I did one with pink ribbons for my friend who had a double mastecomy, it was on her door when she came home from the hospital.)

So I get ready to mail it, can't find the mailing paper anywhere, so I plan to pick some up. I go by the post office to get the postage so that once it is wrapped I can just drop it off. I wait in line, get to the front and crap! I can't find Kathy's addy anywhere, so off to the side to look in my app for the pm with it. Back in line with the address and I get to the front CRAP! My purse is in the car and therefore no way to pay! lol Back out to the car and the third times a charm!! lol

It almost became my door decoration! lol

I'm sorry I couldn't post a message here yesterday because I'm preparing to move abroad, and I was out of the computer for a long time to solve some administrative details. And, there's a lot of packages here to prepare for the moving from Portugal to France. I bought my flights yesterday, and I will leave March 2nd with my girl. My husband is already in France...


Judith,

I'm still in shock and have no words to express how I felt after receiving my package yesterday 20/02 in the morning at 9am. When I saw the postman ringing at the bell with a big package... I thought OMG!! And my little girls was surprised and asked right away, oh is this for me? LOL.

It's a big knitted blanket, and it was so beautifully wrapped with pink and red paper around it. So, so beautiful and precious work! I don't know I to thank you enough Judith, you really made my day with this beautiful gift! When I saw the cost of the package, I felt a little bit bad I confess (almost 50$) . Thank you so so much for your generosity... I'm quite speechless, this is priceless to me! :kisses:blush

Look at this wonder ladies!! I know you all envy me, but here's a photo of the wonderful gift I received from Judith.

<a href="http://s1239.beta.photobucket.com/user/scrapkokotte/media/judith_zpsfcde043a.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i1239.photobucket.com/albums/ff501/scrapkokotte/judith_zpsfcde043a.jpg" border="0" alt=" photo judith_zpsfcde043a.jpg"/></a>

The color pink isn't really the same in the photo, it's a very beautiful old pink (my favorite one, by BTW! :))

And there's a super sweet message with it: "Happy Valentine's Day, I hope you'll have time to relax with a cup of coffee and a good book while wrapped up nice and cozy. Enjoy!"

I love it!. It means a lot to me. It's the first time I receive something from the US. :36_1_33:

Thank you again Judith!! I'm so happy!!

That's funny, Missi. I had a similar trip to the post office recently. I was sending out some vinyl lettering to a customer and I got about halfway to the post office and it popped into my head that, hey I don't even know where this package is going despite the fact that I created the mailing label. So I glanced over to the car seat next to me and read the name and address. Crap! I knew right away that I had not changed the address on my mailing label form and I was about to send this off to the last customer that had ordered from me. So, I turn around, go all the way back home. Re-do the mailing label and off to the post office I go. I stand in line for what feels like eternity only to have the clerk tell me that the system doesn't recognize the zip code. Crap! Now I'm thinking, don't tell me I have to go all the way back home because I'm liable to go "postal" right here in the lobby. Thankfully, she looked up the zip code for me and we made the correction on the label. Some days, it just doesn't pay to get out of bed. :36_11_13:

I was probably one of the first to get my craft, but it took me over a month to share with you the photos. Mostly because it's been a hot mess around here and I get distracted so easily.

So, while it's late it's better than never!

Mish was my giver of craftiness and she did a super lovely job on these letter blocks. One side says LOVE with a heart specifically for Valentine's Day (or even just for fun!) and the opposite side spells FAITH for every day use. I really like them! So much so I'm thinking of making some more just for me!

Thanks again Mish!
