100 Things About Me

I joined a swap called 100 Things About Me. I had to list 100 random factoids and whoever my lucky partner is has to craft for me based on those facts or else stalk the hell out of my wist in case my list doesn't do it.

Finding 100 things to list about myself was actually kind of difficult. I never thought I was so boring! I guess also trying to write the list from the point of view that someone has to make shit based off this list really limits what I can put. I mean it's not like I can put

52. I dye my hair
53. I don't eat ketchup, mustard, mayo, or really most condiments
54. I am scared shitless of grasshoppers
55. I like to hold snakes, it makes me feel dangerous

Give me some feedback via comments people!



Stupid stupid stupid project that I have screwed up twice and I am not sure that I want to start it again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

There are two parts to the project and the first is time consuming. I screwed that up the first time and had to start over. Then I thought I had a wonderful completed project and it turns out that it's all screwy! I think I may have to post it on http://craftfail.com/

I found another lovely crafty site that I am loving http://dollarstorecrafts.com/ so crafty peoples go get some inspiration!

I have a box that I am almost ready to send out and once it's received I will post some pics on here. Actually make that two boxes that are ready to send!

In the mean time here are pics of the kids and some swap love they received from the Jar of Whimsies swap. These are some pretty big whimsies they received! Landon got some crocheted Ninja Turtles which he loves!

And Adia got a super cute tote filled with some goodies!

Here a frame that was made and sent for the Crafty Detective Swap. My usually reliable Tacky Glue failed me though and I guess it came apart during shipping. The recipiant is going to try to repair it based on this photo.

Then there is this charm bracelet inspired by a Victorian Tea Party. I don't care for gold tone but I didn't make it for myself and it turned out nicely. I had a heck of a time finding all the dang charms I wanted though!


Small Works of Art

I have discovered a new crafty love called inchies. I had heard of them before but never really looked at them until there was a new swap post for an inchie swap. Basically they are 1x1 inch squares that are decorated into small works of art. Seeing what people come up with to fill such a tiny space is really amazing. I have been so inspired seeing what others do that I can't stop making them. In fact I have plans to use the ones I receive from other along with more that I make myself to create a large collage to hang over my couch. From the swap I will end up with a total of 50 inchies, plus I did a personal swap and received 10 more, and have plans for another personal swap for some more! I want to get some from as many different sources as possible so they will all be different. Here are the 50 that I made for the swap, I kept 5 for myself and sent the rest out to 9 different people. As I make more I will post them.

I also participated in a "craft my theme" swap. I made my partner a book pillow, which it seemed a lot of others liked. I am actually making another for a partner in a current swap I am doing. It has the elastic to hold the book open for you leaving you hands free to read. In thinking about it though, it may actually be a pain to stick the read pages under the elastic band as you turn the page.......Oh well she liked it and I guess that's what counts!

She also really wanted a reading is sexy shirt. She had one on her wists but I decided to put my own spin on it. This shirt was also pretty well received by others. I think I may have to make one myself. I am still working on perfecting my stenciling skills but have found that using contact paper to cut out the design works beautifully. I just have to make sure to get stuck to the fabric really well. I know this looks like there is a line through her middle but it's really just the reflection on the wonderfully sparkly paing. Oh how I love sparkles.....

Last but not least I made her some bookmarks. Her theme that I chose was reading/library. With the bookmarks though I could incorporate some of her other themes in, tree of life, retro, and rock & roll.

I just finished up a crafty detective swap where I was not allowed to communicate with my partner, she has no idea who is crafting for her just like I have no idea who is crafting for me. Totally the wrong swap for me to sign up for! I can't stand not knowing things and not being able to communicate was difficult. It was really hard to craft for my partner cause I don't think we had a lot in common and she was not so stalkable! The things she requested were a bit out of my crafting league. All in all I did the best I could and she will hopefull like the package, especially since I think this is her first swap!!!

Once the package is received I will post pictures of what was inclued in it.

I am currently crafting for the Invite Your Partner Swap and another Jar of Whimsies swap.

I have found a few neato websites lately, well Tiff found them.

I feel bad that we didn't get any mothers day crafting done, but I should get credit for at least buying cards and sending them right? I even remembered all the April birthdays this year! I will now pat myself on the back!

So there it is for those who are interesting in the craftiness that I do.
