With Jes's permission I have decided to open a June Maggie swap
if there is enough interest here. My idea was to alter a full size paint can.
These can be bought at Home depot and other stores too. They turn out so cute and will be even cuter with out little Maggie little images decoratimg them. You can use one image or several
to make a scene. There should be coordinating background paper unless you do a clear plastic one,also embellies like flowers,doilies, butterflies,
ribbons, lace or whatever suits your partners tastes. Inside you will put one Magnolia
stamp from her wishlist.
Please list about 5 Maggie stamps you would enjoy. The mail date should be by June 27th hopefully to be received by the end of the month.
This is open to all past Maggie swappers or new swappers who have at least 3 successful swaps here. Please pm me with your board name, real name, addy and either an email address or ph number. I will not allow any flakers to join so please do not sign up if you have been a flaker. I will report flakers to that list.

Here are a few links to youtube on how to make a paint can, then just add your Maggie images to it. Also consider using ribbons or something else on the handle as this really adds a cute touch. So who is ready to play?

Hope we can get a few of you interested with the smaller swap.
So many cute things you can do with the paint cans and they
are big enough to store crafty items too, always a plus in my book.BigGrin

Hello Evelyn,
Hope you are having a good day?
I have some good news for you, your stamp has been
ordered and I worked all day on your paint can.
I think I am finished with it. If you like shabby chic
as you said then I think you'll like thisBigGrin

I will hold off on sending it for a week or two so don't feel at all
rushed on mine.
Hugs to you swappin sis,
Kathy

Hi Kathy -- I was thinking about you and wanted to check in. WOW, you're fast. I am still working on yours. I'll let you know when I am ready to mail so we can coordinate our mailing time and see if we can get them close to the same time.

I can't wait to see it. I tried the sneak peak thing -- I barely can do the whole thing so I better stick to what I can do. My can for you is going postal and I can't wait til you get it. I am so glad we did this Kathy. We had some fun with this one didn't we? I think the PMs were fun and posting on the board was even better as everyone gets to see what we've been up to. LOL. Thanks so much for hosting. You really are a great hostess too!

Awe shucks Evelyn, you are so nice to say that.
I am glad we went forward with this even if it
was just you and me. I have loved getting to know
you better. Don't worry about the sneak, it's not
required.
I have an idea for next rd, it's something I have never
seen altered before but I would like to give it a try.BigGrin
I am using an unaltered version of it right now as a place to
keep certain types of my materials....just a lil hint for youLOL Wink

I just checked tracking and it looks like it should be delivered to you today.
Hope you get it soon!
Hugs to you
Kathy

Oh Kathy -- this can is ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS. I love it. You did an awesome job. This was such a good swap even if was just the 2 of us. I can't wait for the next one. I love all the colors (my favorite) and the stick pins and dove pin cushion on the lid, well; it's just the most beautiful thing ever. Love I sure hope the others will look at our post from this as it is an invite to the swap for sure.

You have me so excited for the next swap, I am really curious. Usually, I am pretty good at figuring things out but I am not sure what you have in mind this time. Hope to see it posted soon. That means a couple of things: 1)we get to know what it is and 2)more importantly is that your husband is holding his own which allows you to do this. THAT IS GOOD NEWS! Bottom line is we will be happy to see another swap as it gives us a boost to know that things are going ok for you all.

Again, THANK YOU so much.
Evelyn

Ok - let's try this again. I keep getting an error that "NETWORK PATH CANNOT BE FOUND". I will keep trying to get the pics posted so you all can see. This is so frustrating.

No worries Evelyn,
I think I can post some pics, let me try.
I am looking forward to seeing what you have
created as well. As for ongoing swaps, I will do my best
to keep things going here but today dh is really struggling
and I pray we don't end up with him in the hospital again.Scared
Plus we are getting a big scare from our insurance company as well
that could ruin us financially.Crying
Taking it all one day at a time here.
I will go ahead and tell you what I am thinking of, if I hostess
a JUlY swap. I am thinking of an altered 6 pack carrier. It can be from beer
or soda or whatever but it should be able to hold 6 spray paint size objects.
in it. I have one I use to hold my mod podge tall glues and some other tall
bottles I often use but it is unaltered and looks kinda yucky. These have built
in handles and can be folded flat ( if you are careful not to put big embellies
over the fold lines) and make great, cheap storage. If you have something else
you would like to request let me know and I can revise my thinking on this.

Okay now I'll try to post the pics of the paintcan I made you.
I have loved being your partner!Wub

Hi Kathy ! I would LOVE to make an altered 6 pack holder like that...but I do not have any magnolia stamps except one Tilda...so if you decide to make a swap with the holder that can be decorated any way we want, then I would join for that. I would prefer to use Graphic 45 or other vintage materials.

Just peeking in to see what you were up to here... I love the paint cans tooo !!Wub

Janice if you click on my blog you can see mine there,
is anyone else having trouble seeing these?

Barb, you'd be welcome to join and use any papers you want to cover
the 6 pack ( or paints etc)but you should use a Maggie stamp on it as well,
nicely colored. I am happy to send you a few stamped Maggies if you need me to.

Now I had a very happy mail day today because I got Evelyn's
beautiful paint can in my fav colors and lot's of gorgeous laces
and flowers and bling. I love it! Then on top of that she went way
over the top with the goodies inside as well.
Thank you so much Evelyn, you did a wonderful job and I will certainly
think of you every time I look at it!

Ps if we do the 6 pack is anyone else interested?

Thanks so much Evelyn, he is back in the hospital he sounded better today,
They are giving him IV fluids
seems one of the probs besides dehydration and poor nutrition was not enough salt
in his diet. He says it tastes nasty to him, but then he says that about most things
these days. He kept falling he was so weak.

Janice I am glad you liked the paint cans hope you can join us for the July
swap, we need at least one more to even things up for partners.
