Mystery Swap # 41

One of the swaps I am in monthly swap that I love being a part of!  It is actually my favorite swap!!!!! I was in four groups but I couldn't get a pic of the Santa hats I made, so I just gave up trying to take pic.

I used my cricut machine to make the spider in a wed pp.  I ran the spider and wed through my sticker maker to sprinkle glitter in them.  The pic doesn't show it too well, but I used yellow glitter for the eyes.

This one my daughter actually designed.  She came up with the whole thing all by herself.  I did the cutting with my cricut machine and sizzix.  She did the shading and stamping!

I love my spellbinders dies!  Mainly I love the emboss and stencil option they give you!  For these candy canes I did just that!  I used chalk for the red and the green!

Getting Closer

Big sigh....Another year closer to 40!!!!! I did have a great birthday though! The night before my friends kidnapped me. They took me bowling. I had blast! My friend Brandy got me a wonderful card that brought tears to my eyes and some scented lotion.

Alicia got me the Late Night Expansion pack and the Fast Lane Stuff pack for the Sims 3! She also got me a box a chocolate. Made me and Oreo pie and made my birthday cake again this year.

She use Jolly Ranchers and fruit snack to make a smiley face.  For the 36 she use gummy worms! Alicia also used Jolly ranchers and Gummy worms to put around the cake.  She is just too precious!

Halloween Swap

I made these paper piecing for a Halloween swap that I offered to do an angle spot in. The theme was Black Cats.  So I thought that this pattern would be perfect! When I was posting this on my gallery at I realize that I forgot to dot the eyes.  I am glad that I uploaded the pic before sending them off so i was able to fix that.

Swaps, Swaps and More Swaps!

The past few months I have participated in a number of swaps! Right now I am in a total of 14 swaps!  I know that seems like too much for a person to handle, but 7 of them have been mailed off.  I am just waiting for them to come back to me.  No big hurry to see any packages in the mail right away though.  Only one of them are due to be swapped out and mailed back to all of the participants.  For the rest of them the due dates are the end of next month through March. 

Swaps are wonderful!  You have the opportunity to challenge yourself to learn something and make new friends.  The thing I love most about swaps is hosting them.  It always so much fun to get something in the mail.  Even if it is something you can't keep.  Plus you get to see what everyone has made for the groups you are not in. 

Right now I am hosting three swaps.  One of them is pretty much done.  A Toilet Paper Roll Secret Pal swap.  One person has already received theirs from their pal and my pal should be getting hers either today or tomorrow. I forgot to take pictures before sending it off.  So I won't be able to share my creation unless she posts pic in her gallery.  I hope she does!  Most of all I hope she likes it.  Seeing how I was hosting the swap I took the opportunity to pick something that was a challenge for me instead of picking something that was easy.

The other two are open and sign ups are still open for both of them. One of them is for handmade embellishments.  The thing I love most about scrapbooking is making my own embellishments so I wanted to host a swap for just that.  Feel free to check it out! Handmade Embellishment Swap.  The third one I am hosting is monthly learning type swap.  Each month different techniques are chosen for people to either learn how to do or to brush up on their skill for.  I was in one of these many years ago and I had so much fun doing it! Learning Swap.
