Love seeing all the boxes coming in. So many ideas to try.

Teri, I am in love with my purse! It is a very usuable purse which I do plan on using. Did every one see all of my chocolate covered cherries, oh my goodness my most favorite brand in the world. Teri paid attention to my answers because I said I was a chocolate covered cherry snob and only liked this brand - lol. The altered jar with the pearls, lace and tea light is perfect and the flicker puts out a soft glow. I could go on about everything but will stop now.

Gwen, Thank you for hostessing a wonderful swap. I created for and recieved from 2 wonderful ladies. I really enjoyed creating for and sending to Kelley, and I so love everything Teri created/sent me.

Lovely items you made for Sheila, Terri.

I can see her putting those music sheet snowman to good use!

I've been in bed since dinner last night, got slammed with the grip or flu or something, so I'm not too happy of a person right now. I seldom get sick too! Who has time to be sick the week before christmas?? Not me!

Gwynne, I hope you'll start to feel better soon! Thank you so much for pairing Kelley with me. My box is awesome!

Denise, Graphic 45 has beautiful paper. The only bad thing is that sometimes the pages are too beautiful to cut. lol!

Here are the pics, ladies. Get those drool bibs ready. I am amazed that Kelley sent me these since I would have had a hard time parting with them, had I made them. Thank you so much, Kelley! I love pink, and she doesn't, but somehow, she managed to find a way to make a box that would be a happy medium for the both of us. Everything goes so well with what I already have. There are lots of damasks, Graphic 45, sparkles, and Steampunk! Everything is perfect!

Thank you so much Kelley! All these brightened my day/Christmas!

Drumroll please, and remember NO DIBBS!!!!
Day 1: Notecards with fruit silhouette. She also altered a tin to contain them. This is simple and elegant. Jackie O will definitely approve.
Day 2: Damask Décor cartridge—I love this! She took note that I love the damask pattern.
Day 3: A fabulous Paris-themed curio box. Look at all the details!
Day 4: A Steampunk wall hanging. I wanted to make a little something for myself using this image from the G45 paper and never got ‘round to it. Thank you so much for reading my mind, Kelley!
Day 5: A Christmas banner. Hubby wanted to hang this right away but I told him I still had to take pictures. He picked a perfect spot for it—it will be placed above the sliding doors since we have more than ample space there.

Day 6: Look at all the details in these gift tags! Love the box that went with them too!
Day 7: Lindy’s Stamp Gang Sprays—this is one product that I absolutely swear by!
Day 8: An aqua papier mache butterfly with aqua stones. This is so delicate-looking and pretty!
Day 9: A darling purse filled with Lindt truffles and she also sent me a Toblerone. Yummy!
Day 10: Blue and aqua lace and a Paris-themed trim (They were inside the altered box for Day 11.)
Day 11: An altered box with goodies inside! She used paper that matched the top hat Kim made for me. LOVE!!!! The crystals will come handy in the mini albums that I make. I wish you ladies could see how luxorious those mica flakes are.
Day 12: A Once Upon A Springtime altered frame. This is so pretty!

It was coming out way too grungy so I thought the wreath would be a better fit for my partner's tastes.



Peachy so glad you liked everything. I am so glad that frame made it in one piece. I saw the inspiration for it on your Pinterest and decided to make my own version. It was originally a magnetic board that was black in the center.

I am loving everything everyone sent this round. Great swap Gwynne and hope you feel better soon.

Oh my gosh, what fantastic boxes have just been posted!!! I truly am in awe of the creativity we have on this board!!!
Gwynne, I know how you feel... REST!!!!!!!! and get better soon!
The placemat purses are the easiest things ever! Just fold wrong sides together, stitch both sides and then bring the side together with the bottom to make a triangle shape, stitch across it, turn inside out, hand sew some handles on and voila! I covered a plastic canvas piece and added that to the inside bottom for a little more stability, but wish I had made it wider! Then I make some "frou-frou" lace things for the front! I pinned Jen's on, because I wasn't sure if she'd like it or not! Jen, I am so happy that you like everything. The altered jar I'm making for me, too, because I just loved it so much! It really does look pretty at night!
Have a great evening all, I should be finishing my decorating, but am so chilled for some reason that I think I'll just relax for tonight and do it in the morning...
Take care!
Teri

Great boxes everyone. I love to see every ones take on the directives. I hope no one cares if I scraplift a LOT of these ideas. Gwynne I hope you feel better. I was flat on my back a few weeks ago and my daughter has it now. Everywhere you go someone has it. This was a great swap and I can't wait for the next one( depending on dh's health). Such a great bunch of ladies with a lot of talent.

Go to your Sent Messages and forward the texts to your e-mail. (add your email address to your contacts) Save the pics from your email to your computer and proceed as usual. That's what I do because I have no clue how to move stuff directly from my phone to anywhere...

I have an HTC as well. It's what I use to take all of my pics. If you touch on the picture after you've taken it a bunch of little icons will pop up at the bottom of the picture. The 3rd icon from the left is 2 little arrows click on that. Then a box will pop up and it will give you options bluetooth, facebook, facebook for HTC, flickr, gmail, etc. I have a gmail account associated with my phone so I always click on that. Your picture will automatically go into an email as an attachment. Send the email to your email account. Log on to your account and download the picture from your email account to your computer. Then you go into your download file (usually in your document file) and there your picture will be. Hope this helps

Hi Ladies! Everyone's boxes are wonderful! There will definitely be a lot of scraplifting going on. Gwynne, I hope you get better soon. The flu is going around our area now. I am down w/ bilat ear infections and bronchitis. Trying to finish up Christmas gifts this weekend. DD and I are hanging out, crafting while the guys are hunting. Hope everyone gets well for Christmas! Thank you for a wonderful swap. I love all my goodies from Linda.

Kelley, everything you made peachy is just gorgeous! The Paris shadow box is awesome! Love the steampunk wreath and G45 altered frame too.

Peachy, is that G45 white frame not the prettiest frame you've ever seen?

Wonderful job and I'm sure peachy will enjoy it all.



*****

So I have sat on couch and watched Hallmark channel christmas movies all day long and then a Christmas special on Andy Williams with clips of all his xmas shows from years past. Awesome!
I think I'm feeling better so that is good!


Thank you all for a marvelous swap!

So glad you got them. Let me know how they taste (and please be honest).LOL I've never ordered from them before, but have seen them on TV. Plus they're about the only place to order chocolate covered strawberries from.

Thanks so much for another great swap Gwynne. You are an awesome host!

Looking forward to the next round. I've learned so much and my crafting has been taken to a whole new level by participating in these swaps with you all. So much talent here. Lots of scraplifting to do! LOL Laugh Thanks ladies, it's been a real pleasure swapping with you all.

Another great big thank you to Peachy for the amazing box of goodies that I received. I will treasure them for a long time to come. You were a great partner and I hope to partner with you again in the future.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all the fantastic ladies in this swap

Gwynn....

I've been watching the boxes come in and SEEING who was sending LATE...and YOU were saying?????????? I was the one that had the LATE issue....and you allowed these ladies to join.....IT just PISSES me off for you to bully me and then it doesn't run as smooth as YOU Said it did....kind of funny to me. I hope you eat your words!

Yes, I do have issues with those that always mail late and always have excuses, and usually the same excuse over and over. IT gets old.

For the record, here is a run down of who mailed late (DD was 12/5) this swap, and why: You will note that the list of names are not ones that mail late on a regular basis and not known to have excuses.

Beanie’sMom mailed on 12/6, her pkg. arrived to Candy on 12/8
She needed that extra day for a last minute reason and it was no big deal to me as one day late was vast improvement from last June when she mailed a month late. Her confidence has grown immensely and her craftmanship is superb. Plus I already knew we had Terri mailing late, so the drawing for the prize was already out the door.

AmyS mailed on 12/6, her pkg. arrived to COB on 12/11
She didn’t realize her PO closed at 4 on Wed. so she missed getting there in time

Kelley mailed on 12/8, her pkg. arrived to peachy on 12/14
I should note that Kelley paid for priority and the pkg. was suppose to arrive on 12/10

M&K Grandma mailed on 12/10, her pkg. to Jen arrived on 12/13
Teri was unfortunate to come down with a bad case of the flu on the DD; her post just prior to that said she’d be ready to mail on time – so obviously it was just a matter of her getting well enough to finish wrapping and tagging and getting it in the mail.

Tiffany mailed on 12/11, her pkg. arrived to Jean on 12/13
I should note here that I knew Tiffany was busy with finals the same week as mailing date and that Jean was away on vacation and then busy with a craft show that weekend so I let Tiffany know that it was okay to mail late as Jean wasn’t going to be home and that I had a couple other ladies mailing late so it would help keep the secrets of who had who if she needed the extra time, working around her papers and finals. So it was me that asked for that box to be mailed late.

Robin mailed on 12/11, her pkg. arrived to Terri on 12/12
I should also note here that I knew Terri was mailing late and last so when Robin’s husband ran into unexpected issues with tearing up her craft room floor and kept her from being able to unpack her craft supplies – I told her it was okay cuz fair is fair, if Terri is mailing late then it’s fine for Terri to receive late too.

PlanLady mailed on 12/12, her pkg. arrived to Sheila on 12/14
1. Terri’s family had a change of holiday plans which meant that Terri ended up traveling to Maine to celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas at same time over the Thanksgiving week.
2. Terri returned from Maine only to find out her FIL was about to pass away; so off to the Carolina’s she traveled to give their final goodbye and stay on for the funeral.
3. Because Sheila’s son had passed away, Terri wanted to make sure she sent a super nice box so just throwing anything together from her stash was not an option, she wanted to do it right and we knew Sheila would understand having been thru the same circumstances herself.


Everyone else mailed on time but it should be noted that 7 of the boxes mailed on time arrived on the 10th or later. So boxes mailed late that still arrived that same week (10th thru the 14th), is not bad at all! For that, I was thankful that it did not drag on into this coming week. I see nothing wrong with any swap that is completed 9 days after the DD, knowing that we are at the mercy of the postal system during the start of the holiday season.

So bottom line, yes we had a handful mail late. It’s to be expected this busy time of year. The gals that mailed late don’t normally mail late and don’t normally have excuse after excuse after excuse. and Father in laws only die once.

I don't want to ruin anybody's Christmas, but since the world is supposed end 12/21/2012 LOL and if you are NOT RHONDA, please do not read what I will post below...

It's time for me to open my mouth, and since Rhonda lurks in this thread anyway, I'm sure she will read this.

Rhonda, the people who mailed their swaps late are not known for being HABITUALLY late. You do not want to cause drama in your swap yet you don't hesitate to cause drama in other people's swap. I will defend those who mailed late because I have become friends with them and I refuse to let you cast stones on them. I am sure you would be a lot nicer if you were in front of Gwynne or the late mailers in this swap if you were facing them in person and not hiding behind the computer screen.

Do not let your jealousy over seeing the beautiful items everyone else received be your motive in trying to spoil this swap for everyone else. Gwynne as the hostess has the prerogative in allowing who can or can't join because this is her swap. You mention God in your posts and I hope you remember Him all the time.

As for me, I will be praying for you to have a happy Christmas with fond memories with your loved ones, to make up for your bitterness to whatever happened to your life that I or the other message board members have no business knowing.

There are more serious issues in the world than swap drama. My heart goes out to the families of the shooting victims. I gave my baby an extra hug and kiss and I am thankful that I was able to do that. Here are a couple of Christmas pics that were taken a month ago and I forgot to share them. Laugh We had our picture taken in front of the tallest Christmas tree in the nation (according to the mall's advertisement). Daddy insisted that the baby should wear that outfit in this year's Christmas photo with Santa. LOL

That is one of the best "sitting on Santa's lap" pictures I've every seen Peachy! You are so lucky to have a place to go where they go all out decorating the background with real xmas items instead of just a movie screen backdrop with a scene painted on it.

And I like that outfit!

Thanks for sharing!

I just texted my daughter and find out she's still sick in bed with the flu! She's been in bed since Thursday evening. I'm so thankful that I didn't get as sick as she is! I feel so bad for her. I told her to first get better and then we'll figure out a plan of attack to get her all ready for Christmas on time. There are enough of us around here to figure it out somehow. So the more I hear of different ones getting the flu the more I realize that it's a bad strain this year!

And yes, my heart goes out to all those families in CT too. It's so sad and I start to tear up everytime I hear it being talked about on the TV.

Losing your child, at any age, is a terrible, terrible thing to go through and the pain never ever goes away. I hope that town will feel lots of kindness and tenderness from the rest of the world for a long, long time.
