Everyone participating should have received a PM from me with their swap information. If you didn't let me know.

We can use this thread to chat while we all wait for our craft! I can't wait to see what everyone makes.

Remember, if you feel you aren't going to be able to get your craft made and sent to your assigned gal by May 12th, please PM me.

Happy Crafting!!

SandyPie
05-07-2013, 07:04 PM
That was insanely stressful!! :snail: I chickened out on my first project idea and decided to go a different route so it put me behind with iNSD and all.

My apologies in advance to my recipient. I know you don't know who you are. But I mailed it today and the box I found to fit it was a little big, so the price difference between you getting it for sure Saturday and next Monday was $18! So it will probably be late. (But it could get there on time, who knows? My luck has to change at some point.) And sorry the box is so big and the stuff inside is nowhere near as spectacular as the box represents it to be.

Going back to hide in my corner now.

It's a little flower pot, inside a super cute holder. The holder can be used for lots of different things, as the flower pot holder, or a pencil holder, or just about anything.

I love it Wendy! I got it yesterday...it could have been there the day before, but I don't like to check the mailbox mostly because it's a mailbox station and not at my door! hehe

I just recently started wearing scarves so I'm excited to add it to my small collection! I really love the colors too. I'll post a picture for everyone to see your awesome craftiness sometime this weekend.

Thank you SO much Wendy. :kisses

I love all of it...the colors are perfect....the quotes are beautiful and the mini album is something I will always cherish. I also love the vases....in Tx we call them redneck wine glasses and I cannot wait to drink out of them...in fact I have always wanted some! The glass in the frame broke, but I will replace it soon :( thanks again you made me one happy mommy!!

Darling stuff ladies! You're all so great.

I'm glad you liked it Ginger, I was really at a loss of what to do, I'm not really that creative and Olivia (7 months and crawling and climbing and teething) keeps me from spending more than a few minutes on anything. When I saw this idea I thought it was cute and something I could do. Bella (3) was by my side the whole time "helping" me. That's fun that the color matched your manicure! How fun! I got the paper from the Gingerscraps Essentials packs. :)

Oh Jessica! So glad you like it! I'm so sorry about the frame :(

After I got it all done, I completely forgot about Pandas! I just had owls in my head the whole time...LOL. Luckily, there were bunches of kits with owls on them! Then I was in such a rush to mail it, I forgot to include a note...lol. Enjoy your wine glasses! I use them for everything, vases, candle holders, craft holders...everything!

Em! You could not have done a better job! I suggest they offer you a spot on the GS Hybrid team...You would make them proud!! I love my album and took pictures today to add to it :) btw you included a note on the back of the book and signed your name, so you did not forget :)

I love it Wendy! I got it yesterday...it could have been there the day before, but I don't like to check the mailbox mostly because it's a mailbox station and not at my door! hehe

I just recently started wearing scarves so I'm excited to add it to my small collection! I really love the colors too. I'll post a picture for everyone to see your awesome craftiness sometime this weekend.

Thank you SO much Wendy. :kisses

YEAH! So glad you like it! It's always scary to send a gift to someone you don't "know." LOL! It was the perfect thing to get my creative juices flowing again! I haven't taken the time to knit in a while and it felt really good to do that.

I got an awesome package in the mail today! Thank you so much, Sandy! I am revamping my craft house right now and I have a couple of Ws out there and was thinking...I need to make a few more to build up my collection! No need now as these two are the perfect addition to the space! It's so cool that you made one with one of my kits! What a fun treat! I love the wrapped one too! Holy smokes, you're fingers must have been on fire! I've been wanting to make some letters like that for a while now and I love the one you made! These will be very much cherished pieces. Thank you again so very much!

I may have stalked your Pinterest boards a little (*cough lot!) to find something you'd actually want. It was hard because I really wanted to follow some of your boards, but didn't want to give myself away till after the exchange, so yah! now I can go follow you!! I was really hoping you'd be ok with my using your kit. Your kit's are so lovely I couldn't resist. I know I'd be totally excited if the reverse had happen to me, so I went with it. I cheated a little on wrapping the letter, I used spray adhesive (just a small area at a time) because I'm really ditzy, burn easily and not patient enough for glue to set or cool down, so it makes me really really hot glue gun challenged. ;)

I love your picture, such a pretty kitty too! Thank you!! So very happy you're enjoying them.

OH my goodness SUCH cute stuff!! Mine is a bit late, so sorry! I got it all packaged up and ready to mail, then got totally sidetracked with a really bad earache (I got some antibiotics, but waited too long and my eardrum is ruptured, UGH!!). I have to go to town tomorrow for some blood work, so I will have a ride to the post office (I'm so dizzy from my annoying ear, its not safe for me to drive yet), and I can finally get it in the mail!

I feel a little bad its not homemade this time.... but hopefully my partner will still love it, even though its store bought.

I hope you ALL had a WONDERFUL Mothers Day!!!

I love the decorated and wrapped "W's". I actually have a cardboard "M" waiting for me to wrap!!! Great job Sandy.

Wendy - people who can knit and crochet intrigue me. My sister, who is also named Wendy, crochets a ton of stuff. I have the stuff to crochet, but....well....I haven't figured it out yet.

i am sooooo glad i'm not alone on the 'late' issue. i swear it is not for lack of trying! if it could go wrong it has...BUT i'm working on getting it out i promise. if i'm lucky my partner is sending theirs really late too so they will understand :) please forgive...it really will be worth it or ima gonna die trying!

Well dang it, I went and got my mail today, and the package I mailed out to my partner was in there..... I guess I didn't remove the tracking label from when I received it. I used a box that I received a package in. I guess the mail man completely ignored the actual address label AND the tracking info that I put on there, and they use the tracking label on the underside of the box - that was old.
Ugh! I'm so sorry to my partner!! I'm going out of town and won't be able to get it into the mail till next Thursday :( unless I can bribe my mom to mail it for me on Monday.
Total bummer.

just putting and FYI in here. i have not received my gift as of yet. my guess is that my partner is one of the few of us that are late and that is completely ok. do not want to know who...JUST letting u know so that if the person DID send it on time...that it did not get here and not that i didn't like it and not show it off :)

I'm so bad! I did receive my swap from Sarah but I just haven't been in the forum much the past couple of weeks. I've been swamped with too many on going projects and orders from my Etsy store so I've barely been around.

The lovely Sarah sent me a hand painted box with 2 pieces of beaded jewelry inside all in my favorite color - blue. I'll get a picture up soon. I promise! Thank you Sarah - you crafty gir!
