Mini, mini, mini....

Hey y'all....

Well hello there! I hope this Friday finds all of y'all enjoying the day and loving the weekend that's coming! I've been busy...wanna see....*big smile*

This charm swap was over at The Shack and let me tell you - it was lots of fun. It was a "junk" theme and you can see my junk - the pink flamingo, the paper clip clef, the baby rattle and much more. This was our August swap - for September, we are doing diamonds and pearls (faux, of course). Way cool, huh?

Thanks for stopping by - have a great weekend!

Happy Crafting! :~)

Swaps, swaps...swapping...

Good morning y'all,

Don't you just love swapping? If you've never been bitten by the swap bug, watch out because it is mighty catching and so hard to stop. While we are working on the cigar box for #3, let me show you the one I received for #2 from lovely Francine:


The theme was a sewing box and I couldn't believe how well she captured this for me because I love to sew. I haven't in years - but this took me back - look at all the details. You can actually hear me screech on my UTube channel.

She personalized it so well - I just love every nook and cranny.

Look what I sent my partner:

I really enjoyed using these lovely papers I found at HL. Personalizing this for her was a scrap lift from my box I received...heehee....

I saw another person doing these compartments inside her box for her partner and decided to scrap lift that too...heehee....all in all, I thought it came out pretty cool.

Thanks for stopping by. Y'all have a great week!

Happy Crafting! :~)

Delicate and Elegant...

Happy Friday y'all!

How's everybody doing? I'm getting all caught up on things and go, fun, fun! But let me show you another fun thing I learned at The Village.

Our delightful Lia (A Piece of my Scraps) and lovely Ms. Dee (Dee's Special Things) both uploaded a fantastic dress form pattern for us to use.

I'm entering these dress forms into the following challenges:

**Charisma Cardz** - Anything Goes

**Flutter by Wednesdays** - Butterfly, fairy or Angel --- top dress form has blue butterfly

**Little Darlings Challenges** - Pleats or ruffles

**Paper Pretties** - Anything But a Card

We all came up with many renditions of this fun design. Here's one my buddy, Suzyque made:

Suzyque even made the flower on the bodice of this dress form - pretty cool huh? Stay tuned because I'm going to make some of those beauties!! ;-)

Happy Crafting! :-)
