I got my stick pins done, and I have started on the pin cushion. Boy this has been a challage for me, I have never done anything in the theme my partner has chosen (Mardi Gras), and I didn't even know what colours to use. After lots of research, and alot of imagination...I have finally come up with something, and I started on it tonight :) I am hoping to have a sneak peek to show in a day or two.

Hey Girls !! Wow !! You have all been sooo busy and working so fast ! I must say this has to be the fastest group I ever had....
I was out of town over the weekend to sell some Cricut stuff at a Crop and thought I would share a photo of me that one of the other members took of me and my Cricut Buddy... I had a great time. But, that means I also have not been able to work on my pin cushion much and also tags for another SWAP that I am doing. I will be finished on time however.
If anyone wishes to go ahead and mail early, that is okay with me. Please be sure to wrap items securely (especially if it is breakable) Scared . It is sad when someone's lovely tea cup or pottery gets smashed by the USPO and your partner gets a box full of pottery shards. Crying Now... if you were on an archeaolgical dig in Egypt and sent me some pottery shards I wouldn't mind at all !! But, please use bubble wrap and styrofoam peanuts and a sturdy box. Check out the Flat Rate Priority Mail boxes, but sometimes it is cheaper to use your own box and send Parcel Post...since there is no real RUSH on delivery. Please get a Delivery COnfirmation Number. If you learn to buy your postage online through Paypal the DC# is free ! That is what I use and have good luck with it.
I enjoyed reading everyone's messages and posts. Thank you for the compliments...it means a lot to me. Love
If everyone gets their pkgs. and posts photos of their pin cushions quickly, I will start the next round as soon as we are done...sounds like a few more people want to join our happy group ! LOL Night All !

Oh Jewels, sorry about the theme problem for you...you should have sent me a PM or posted...we all are willing to help. For me, Mardis Gras is PURPLE, GREEN & GOLD ....a really fun and wild color combo ! Lots of beads and feathers and party hardy ! I am sure you will come up with something adorable.

I haven't got anymore work done on my pin cushion, unfortunately I go put on bedrest yesterday so crafting has become a little harder. (I am currently 30 weeks with a surrogate baby, and found out my cervix is very short already).

Thankfully what I have left to do I can do out of bed, but I have to have hubby cut a few things from my cricut for me, thankfully I have a gypsy and all he has to do it plug it in and cut :)

Well I finally got a jump start on my pin cushion last night and it is coming along nicely ! I also went to Michsel's on a "quickie" lunchtime trip and found a HUGE selection of beads and charms that were on CLEARANCE + another 70% off ! I loaded up on some great buys at .39 to .89 each ! Some were as much as $4.99 originally....so I will be using some on my stickpins - lots of interesting heart charms !

HAPPY TGIF everyone ! BigGrin

here are some pics of the pin cushion i made. i went a totally different direction and made mine out of a frame. i used the DCWV "linens and lace" stack, although it's minimal. painted the frame a pearlescent white, my cricut cut is from wall decor and more (dress form). i cut several to give it some added dimension. i stuck to the colors that reminded me of valentines--pinks and reds instead of going all out in cupids and arrows. added a pearl flourish, as barbara said she liked those. thimble/needle threader were alcohol inked. other touches include lace around the frame, as well on the dress form, tiny rosettes and spool wrapped in red/white twine. also 'b' for barbara.

sorry i didn't use styrofoam, barb as part of your requirements. i overlooked that simple step, so i apologize again. this was my first pin cushion, so i hope you can forgive the "learning curve".

can't wait to see everyone else's creations.

Thanks for posting the pics Natalie... I have trouble with my camera sometimes....it is a cheap one and getting old too ! I really love how you made this and it is so pretty !
I can certainly forgive the lack of styrofoam. The styrofoam makes it sturdier for holding up the long stick pins. But it is certainly usable this way as well...no problem BigGrin

Just a "heads up" for those who are new to the pin cushion world...even a small square of styrofoam is a big help. In a pciture frame application just cut a square flat piece the size of your opening and then cover it with batting. Love

Will be back soon !

Natalie, that pin cushion is most wonderful. Very unique and clever. Wub Now Barbara, you are looking so good in that pic you posted, but I just have to ask,are you and your cricut "buddy" just friends or is there more to it, and does your hubby know you are hooking up with some guy in a green suit when you leave home???!!! I posted this question in the key swap I think, and thought I'd catch you here as well.Laugh BigGrin LOL

Hi Sharon , I will send DC# on Monday. I keep perseverating, and tinkering on it. If it wasn't for the deadline, I would be adding things to it forever. While Barb, I must say, you both make a really cute couple. He's a little on the short side though.

Barbara I have good news and bad new. The good news is that you did it again, a wonderful swap with happy swappers. The bad news is, you had better watch your back, as you can see from the quote above, Sharon thinks your new beau is adorable and would totally date him so you better treat him right!!! Sharon is so cool to jump into the fun like this. Laugh
