Sweat Shoppe Round 6

I joined the sweat shoppe again. I love that swap! :) I made winter scene necklaces. I sent one winter scene necklace and one winter scene ornament in a pouch to each of my 10 partners. Here's an example of some of the scenes.

I have received 9 out of my 10 items so far and they are all great! :D

atsuko sent me these cute hairpins. I can't wait to wear them!!! :)

and serialcrafter sent me these holiday gift bags. I LOVE the fabrics and the bags are great sizes! :D

Chelleyf sent me these beautiful bead ornaments that look so perfect in my tree! :)

alwaysinmyroom sent me 2 sets of gingerbread ornaments that look cute and smell so good. AND she sent me surprises! :)

I received my adorable monkey ornament from riario. And she also sent me 2 photo ornaments and instructions on how to make my own! :)

when I came back after hanging up the ornaments, I noticed dearjoan's cat was trying to take over my new snowflake scarf from sewknitter!

the scarf is gorgeous and very warm!

I received my sweater savers from chimerix. They smell really good, I keep ramdomly smelling them. :)

I received from Javastain today. :D

I got 6 stars. I took pictures of three of them. The first one is my favorite. :)

and here's the scarf. I love the colors!

I'll post the last item from this swap when I receive. :)

Capture 24 Swap

I did the Capture 24 swap back in November. My partner was kategirl. The swap required us to take a roll of film that our partner would like and decorate a frame and send them to our partner. Then the partner would develop the roll and upload the pictures for everyone to see. This is the frame kategirl made me :)
And I uploaded the pictures she took here. She told me that when she took the roll of film I took in to be developed they lost the roll. I really, really hope they find it because I spent 2 weeks taking pictures of all kinds of places I thought she would like and I want to see how they came out. :(

Shop my Sweat Shoppe Swap

I am currently in the shop my sweat shoppe swap. I chose 5 items to make and people chose what they want. I mailed all the items out and 2 have received so far. I'll post pictures of what I made when more people receive so I don't ruin any surprises. :) But I will post the 2 items I received so far.

I received my scarf from chimerix yesterday. It looks SO amazing! I spent a really long time playing with it. It's long and you can do all kinds of stuff with it.

The beautiful design

how I plan to usually wear it

one of my scary poses when I was playing with the scarf. :)

and here's the journal I received from Cornflakegirly today! It's the perfect size, and I love the design.
