I've been having some issues logging in also. Finally got on tonight. Loving all of the boxes! I need to check out the video for the purse Jen made Kelley. So pretty! Too many things I want to call DIBBS on!

Can't wait to see more boxes!

Hello Pamela,
I can guarantee you that your partner loved everything!
After a long day of car shopping and coming home empty handed and
kinda discouraged I was super excited to find a box on my doorstep.
It was filled with all kinds of beautiful crafts from YOU!
Thankyou so much I loved everything and you are an awesome crafter.

I about drooled over that pearly charm, and the butterfly canvas,the Christmas banner
and the Maggie stamp etc etc. I will take pics tomorrow when the light
is better but wanted to thank you and let you know I got your package today.
Big Hugs from heaven Love

Wow, what talent we have on here. I'm so lovin' everyone's boxes. Going to have to add this thread to my favorites list so I can come back and revisit these projects to scraplift later.LOL LOL LOL

Hey Gwynne, how do you keep your daycare kids from touching all those Christmas decorations? LOL LOL LOL


WHAT!!!!! He took it to work????? How many hours apart are we? I think it should be about time he gets off. Great now I'm nervous.Huh

Loved all the goodies from Rebecca. I know my kiddos are thrilled if there is anything in the boxes for them. Isadora is so cute.Blink I love her banner. That is what I usually do instead of cards when my kiddos go to parties.

Really like the Eiffel and keys Cheryl made. Good thing no dibbs was called.

Okay, I'm gonna make dinner and try not to stress out about Robin's Box

The music sheet ornament is very cute as are the peanuts! too cute!

Thanks for the update and just please be sure to get in the mail tomorrow. Thanks!

I've seen several cute tag sets in this swap. I know I'm setting mine aside from Cheryl as who knows, I may use them in a swap down the road! lol She only wrote on the back of one so I can hide that! lol

And Rebecca's tags were funny! I meant to comment on that!

I did something different with my tags too. If my box ever finally arrives to its destination! My patience is wearing thin....

Kathy I am so glad it arrived and that you like everything! I found several of the items on your Pintrest boards and now that the swap is over I can actually follow your boards! lol I was scared to before thinking it might give me away. Isadora LOVED the butterfly canvas too and wanted it so bad. She cried to put it in her room! So I think I am going to make her one for Christmas for her wall.

I received my box today from bklynborn (Jeri) and everything was just beautiful. I opened each package labeled Day 1 - Day 12 and each one was better than the one before it. I shouldn't have to say this but everything is mine and even tho' it is the season of sharing there will be no sharing from the wonderful goodies that Jeri sent me. lol

With that being said here are pictures of everything that Jeri sent.

Photo#1
This is what I saw when I opened the box but it didn't look like this for long, there was paper flying everywhere so I could see my wonderful goodies!

Photo #2
Day 1: Anything Fruity: A wonderful Chunky Charm with my favorite Watermelon.
Day 2: Love: I have been looking at the Vintaj Deco Etching and Embossing Plates and Jeri got me one of each. When I learn how to use them I will post my project for all to see.
Day 3: Anything French: 4 Beautiful Cards with the Eiffel Tower.

Photo #3
Day 4: Something Made With Feathers: A Tag with a Beautiful Dress Form with a Feather Skirt and Pearls
Day 6: Oval Gift Tags: 3 Oval Gift Tags I don't know if I can put them on a gift but they would be great for a card front.
Day 7: Blue & Green: 2 Glass Glitter Ornaments. What could be better Glitter and my favorite color Green.

Photo #4
Day 5: Banner: It seems that we all panic when we have to make a Banner but the NOEL Banner that Jeri made is great. I'm not getting in the Christmas spirit this year but my NOEL Banner will be hanging in my living room it's so pretty.

Photo #5
Day 8: Pearls: Jeri got me 2 Pearl Pens I'm not sure what they are or how to use them but I love a challenge to learn something new. If anyone has used them before I would love any hints or ideas on how to use them.
Day 10: Masculine: 2 Masculine Card Fronts. These will come in handy Masculine is not the easiest for me because Bling is the name of the game and guys just don't seem to like it. lol
Day 11: Embellishments: One can never have too many beads and these are just beautiful, Beanie will like the Doggie Beads the best.

Photo #6 & #7
Day 9: Altered Purse: I have received an Altered Purse and Jeri used Graphic 45 Nutcracker Sweet Paper to decorate it and then filled it with Hershey Drops. Yummy

Photos and Day 12 Will Be In Post 1049.

Day 5 - Banner - These pics don't do this GORGEOUS banner justice! It is sturdy, finished on both sides, and PERFECT to hang in our house all winter long!

Day 6 - Oval Gift Tags - Bright and colorful and fun!

Day 7 - Blues & Greens - LOVE LOVE this charm dangle... The way it's displayed in this box is so cool. The colors totally remind me of our special family times at the beach!

Day 8 - Pearl Theme - Awesome framed quote with pearl flourish - I'll definitely be finding a nice place to display this, probably in my bedroom!

TERI - I'm so glad you are feeling better! Thank you for all of your nice comments about the items I sent you - It looks like the sugar scrub might have leaked a little... so sorry if it did!

I did make the peanut snowman pins BigGrin I sent you 3 in case you wanted to give your grandkids each one and still have one for yourself, but I'll let you make that decision Laugh

I also didn't write on the back of the tags in case you wanted to reuse them, so I'm glad you are seeing another purpose for them too.

Take care of yourself, and get better so you can fully enjoy the holidays. Enjoy everything!

so glad everything arrived safely! I had some help from Bridgette(birdseye) with the bag! she did the embroidery on it for me! I am glad you like everything! sounds like a good thing I sent an extra bag of m&m's maybe you will actually get some. I had a blast making everything for you! the ornaments with the ribbon inside I found the idea online! I was actually looking for a tutorial for how to make flowers out ribbon and ran into this site that has 101 different things to do with ribbon. those were so simple to make and I happen to have the ornaments here to use. it was so much fun creating everything for you! enjoy all of it! I see the little candy house didn't survive the mail to well, but at least the candy made it safe!

http://www.squidoo.com/1...things-to-do-with-ribbon this is the website I got the idea for the ribbon ornaments if anyone wants some other ideas.

Looks like I have some pictures to comment on since logging off last night!

Glad that box finally arrived to Tiffany - that was a long wait, wasn't it Amy?

You did a nice job on the banner Amy! I have not seen that candy corn M&Ms... The things they think up these days to catch our attention! And the Mickey Mouse altered frame turned out real nice too. That was kind of Bridgette to embroider the Disney for you as well. Sounds like the Disney themed items put a real nice smile on Tiffany's face!

I hope you have most of your finals behind you now Tiffany and can now enjoy preparations for the Christmas season!

An early check of DC#s, shows 5 out of 6 updated overnight. Not sure if there will be any deliveries today, but if not, then chances are good that all 6 will be delivered by tomorrow! Fingers crossed again for some good luck on fast moving mail!

Julie - your daughter is just so cute and it definitely shows in her smile and the twinkle in her eyes how much she enjoyed receiving her gifts from Kimmo! Just precious. I can promise you right now that as soon as kim sees the pics of Jocelyn with the horses, that that will have made Kim's day! She'll be smiling til the end of the year at herself - knowing she's put that smile on Jocelyn's face by sharing horses with her! Kim LOVES horses, you know....


Kim - you did a truly wonderful job welcoming Julie to this swap.

Mittens for the panels on the banner was a great idea for someone to receive who lives in snowy PA! lol

But my favorite is the Jingle Bell altered frame! I love it! I really need to remember that idea to scraplift. That would make a real nice gift to give someone who enjoys xmas decorations. Thinking of my nieces who are all nearing that time in their lives when they will have their own apartments and new lives.

So Julie, seeings that I don't live that far away from you....I may just have to sneak down and "borrow" that box of choc. covered cherries and the jingle bells frame. Better hide both!

Oh, and that was a very neat idea of hanging the dangle from the box like that to display this time of year.

Great job kimmo and enjoy it all Julie!

Debbie (Beanie's mommy)! You get the prize for best presentation of picture taking! Everything looks so nice displayed on that sheet of white glitter paper! Let it snow...does it even snow in New Mexico?? You made me chuckle looking at the pics and seeing that.

Jeri - you did a wonderful job on creating for Debbie@ I see several items that I really, really love! Nice job on coloring in your stamped images too. I have that Paris stamp and it's a PITA to color in and have it look nice. Yours looks far better then the rushed job I've done on mine!

The watermelon dangle is so yummy looking! and love that black feather on the dress form - so stylish looking! I love how you did the banner vertical and diamond shaped! It really stands out that way! The purse turned out super with that paper! As well as the mailbox. Lots of altering going on there and it all turned out so nicely.

No doubt Debbie is enjoying everything!

You did a nice job on the banner Amy! I have not seen that candy corn M&Ms... The things they think up these days to catch our attention! And the Mickey Mouse altered frame turned out real nice too. That was kind of Bridgette to embroider the Disney for you as well. Sounds like the Disney themed items put a real nice smile on Tiffany's face!


oh my gosh that was a forever long wait! I thought that box would never get there!! considering it had an original expected delivery of last thursday! the darn thing sat in greensboro for days I swear! and yes it was very nice of Bridgette to do the embroidery work for me! I really appreciated it! I found the candy corn m&m's after halloween for a dollar a bag so I decided she needed 2! the candy corn m&m's are made with white chocolate and the candy shell is white and orange! very different to try! thanks again for another great round Gwynne!!!

Last year in one of the swaps (maybe it was a xmas in July directive?) Ali altered the following log cabin for me and so this year when I was doing my decorating, I worked one of my shelf scenes around this log cabin. Doesn't it look so nice with the woodland santas, snowman, etc.?

Thanks again Ali for a gift that is truly appreciated!

I actually have several other items now on display but this one in particular makes up the entire theme of the shelf, so I had to show it off

Teri/Julie~ The Peace Banner is probably my favorite that I've seen so far.Although, I do love all of the banners! I love it! Might make one similar for my sister. Love the tags! I especially love the cute daisy purse with pearls. Great job on everything!

Debbie/Jeri~ Love the goodies that you got. Jeri did a wonderful job on everything. I'm scraplifting the mailbox to make for my boys...and I love the banner you did and the tags.


Julie/Kim~ Love all the cards, so darn cute and especially love the Jingle all the Way sign/frame. Very cute idea.

Tiffany/Amy~ Love the Disney embroidery. Very beautiful. Love the banner. I think I'm becoming a banner freak! Flapper

I don't think that there was one banner in the swap that I haven't liked. I love them all and got so many ideas for things I can do for friends and family!

Loving all the wonderful projects in the boxes. Everyone did such a great job on all their crafts...so creative. I'm seeing so much stuff that I want to make! Thanks for the inspiration, ladies

~Rebecca

Day 8: Pearl item. A lovely teacup made out of pearlized shimmer paper with lovely pearls all around the bottom and top of it and loaded with stick pins! Lovely ones too! Pretty cool idea, I must say.... I needed another one too!

Day 9: Purse filled with my fav. xmas mints It's so cute! I can see my DGD wanting it!

Day 10: Male cards - both very nicely done

Day 11: lace (love the paper spools each is wrapped on - lovely presentation)

Day 12: Music Sheet project This is my wow! project, for sure! It is a metal tin and when I lifted the lid off, what did I find inside??? the inner workings of a music box! It plays music! So not only did I get music sheet paper on the embellished lid, but I got music too! Now is that cool or what? Great idea!

Did you make that yourself, Cheryl? I mean, is it a kit or did the tin come that way?

Then she also included some extra goodies as well as a huge bag of metal charms and what not. Just look at all the vintage ones! singer sewing machine caught my eye....

Thank you again so much Cheryl for a lovely, lovely swap box of goodies! It's all very muc appreciated!



The music box I had purchased somewhere. It was just silver and had a prima emblem on top and I altered and embellished it. I just loved the paper and knew it would be perfect for the box. I am so glad you like everything. I really enjoyed creating for you.

Cheryl
