Hey Jackie (r u my guild Jackie?), noone will receive any of their own back unless I just screw up, lol. (And of course, as long as they're acceptable swapage: well-constructed, created by you, true to the intent of the swap, etc.) In my own swaps I always make several different styles so to better accomodate the folks that send in multiples. Be aware tho', that if most people send in single sets you will get some duplicates back. I'll do my best to make it a mixed lot tho'. Best thing about sending multiple sets is you're guaranteed at least one from everybody.
I was hoping to do more than one set, but at this point, I'll be happy with completing one set! Someone please stop me from buying more supplies!! I keep coming up with ideas and thinking: oh, I should buy some _____ to experiment with!
I have made more of the Dorsett buttons, but added french knots to the center....it resembles a bouquet then. I am frantically trying to make my bits work for the mail date tomorrow. I know, last minute...that's what I do!
You are going to have so much fun looking through all of the packages . I took some pictures of mine, but should have picked a different background to put them on, or taken them outside for natural light. I have a feeling that my two little ones are going to be as excited as me when my package of charms arrives in the mail.
I was in the pool Thursday preping to teach water aerobics at the community college.
Alex - tell us more about the art show! I bet it was a blast!
I don't know when I'll do another swap, feel free to host one if you'd like. Things are getting crazy here: lifeguarding on base & water aerobics starting at CC, DH looking for a new job, working on the old house and trying to sell this one. I'm trying to stay out of any new projects till after school starts again, lol. I actually sat on my horse for about 45 seconds last week, first time in about 6 months . Fortunately, he doesn't mind grazing and snoozing his life away, lol.
So I got my charms today! I LOVE them all! Are we posting pics of the ones we made and telling a little about them on another thread? thanks for hosting! i would consider hosting but have son's wedding in june and foot surgery right after that. maybe later in the year.
