What a way to make one happy! I come home from work & check the mail & my mailbox is PACKED with swap packages!!! YIPPEEE!! I LOVED everything & just HAVE to show it all off!!
My twitter buddy mutantpenguin and I were tweeting together one day & decided to do a private swap since we aren’t really in any of the same swap groups (other than that twitter swap is how we met!). SO, I said I’d make her a Dotee doll (see under my Dotee posting here for the photo of the Dotee I made her) because she always wanted one (per her profile) and she would crochet me a scarf.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE the scarf & after I took the photo I noticed the little design in it is hearts — I don’t know if that was intentional or the pattern, but that’s what I’m going with — it was her valentine’s present to me!! I will always cherish it & think of her every time I wear it! Thanks Linda!!
I hold a monthly color challenge in the Jewelry, Jewelry, Jewelry swap group on swap-bot. This was what I received for the January color challenge – colors were: blue & silver pendants. I fell in love with these two swaps I received. Once I finish up in all the valentines swaps I’m in, I think I’m gonna go back to focus on jewelry. I go in cycles of crafting. I finished my Dotee cycle, card cycle, so, its jewelry time again…
I got these two pottery heart pendants from lisa potterylady. I had seen her profile and hoped she would use her pottery in my swap! YAY! I am such a lucky swap recipient!! I know my coworkers will be begging me for these pendants!! Thanks Lisa!! 🙂
homeandheart was my other partner for this color challenge swap. WOW! I opened the envie it all came in and I was mesmerized by the cards that were inside. They were SO AWESOME that it took me a bit of time to notice the swap was attached to the big card/tag. EVEN COOLER!!! Then just thought the blue & brown ‘dangles were on the next smaller card, but after really checking them out, noticed that they were earrings!! How AWESOME is that??? She read my profile that I love those colors to match my scrubs for work! Oh I will DEFINATELY be wearing them to work !! Oh, and the little tag had a rhinestone breast cancer ribbon (again she noticed it from my profile)! I am going to use the tags the jewelry was attached to as book marks so I can always see them! 🙂 I love when people take the time to go the extra mile to really make your swap package special! 🙂 Thank so much Jody!
MorahLaura & I did a private swap of quality beads since we are both tired of getting junk beads in swaps. This was my third quality bead swap out of one swap. I may set up a reoccurring swap like this for others who want good beads, not just plastic or junk. I already starting creating with some of the beads Laura sent me. Thanks for a great swap Laura!!
I think I signed up for pretty much every Valentine card swap on swap-bot since Valentine’s is my FAVORITE holiday!! I believe it is a ‘chick’ holiday & that we share the love with each other!!! It is so fun to get a bunch of valentine cards like back in our school days.
I was in this handmade Valentine card swap & OMG… these cards from swap-bot newbie, spotteddogs, are INCREDIBLE!!! I’ve never seen Copic cards in person only in magazines and online. WOW! I just LOVE them! I surely *sorry to say* am NEVER sending them to anyone! I will DEFINATELY keep them for my collection of favorite cards from swap friends! Thank you Janet!
And lastly but not last in any manner… the Valentine Dotee swap that I received. WOW! I fell in love with her immediately! I am still kinda bland with my faces on my dotees & this one just made my heart melt. I loved how my awesome dotee partner, Haole1, even gave her rosy cheeks & eye shadow! I just loved all the stuff she sewed all over Miss Bella (name she gave her). Such such SUCH a sweet dotee & I will definately keep her in my craft area so I can always see her! She even made me a crochet heart pot-holder (which of course will never be used for that -it will be a doily on my dresser!!) Thank you SO much Katie!
