February's Swap!

Can you tell I'm catching up on blogging tonight?? It was a New Year's Resolution to blog regularly! So I'm determined! It just might take me a month or so to get it "right!"
If you've read my posts.. you know I'm hosting a monthly swap! Each month has a different theme! I'm rotating between 1 to 1 swaps and group swaps!
This month January~ is an Altered Bottle Swap~ I'm so excited to post pictures of all the wonderful bottles.. be on the lookout for a post around the 1st of February!
Since I'm hosting a swap a month... We will be in the middle of one swap when I announce and take sign ups for the next months. I hope it doesn't confuse anyone ( I know I confuse everyone :)) I really do have it organized though... my madness has an order.
Sooooo.... February's Swap will be a group swap. I totally am in love with Birds right now. I have a tree that lives in our bedroom and I have been wanting to decorate it with adorable birds for a while! So this is the time...
February's Swap will be a bird swap! You will create no more than 7 birds. This is a group swap but I am limiting it to the first 7 people who sign up. You can create your bird out of fabric, heavy cardstock, chipboard, grungeboard! It needs to have some dimension... If you create out of chipboard or something of the like~ make sure you add lots of "stuff" to keep it a bit dimensional and fun! Sewing it out of fabric or a combination of fabric, paper, cardstock~ is great as well. You need to have some way to hang your bird. The bird needs to be about 5-8 inches long and wide... You can also get a bird and alter it! Let's keep the colors to shabby chic~ vintage colors... pinks, creames, light blues, greens, gray.
Sign ups will run from January 12th -January 20th. (or if we fill up before then.) I will email you on or before the 21st with a list of participants so you will have an exact number of how many you will create (no more than 7.) Your birds will be due to me by the 21st (that will give you at least a month to create your bird and get it mailed off!) I will then get them packaged and mailed back out so you should receive your 7 birds before the 1st of March.
The birds will make a great Spring decor!
If you have any questions~ please email me~
I look forward to seeing who wants to play along this month!!!

A New Journey

I've always wanted to take a class from Melody Ross~ so... I'm off on a journey! It looks a little deep~ but hmmm... It should be an eye-opener~ I love watching her videos! She puts her heart and soul into all she does. So much work has gone into this endeavor! I'm glad I'll get to enjoy it!!!

I'm totally stalking my front porch!

If you haven't stopped by A Guilded Life's website lately... you need to run on over! You should see the "stash" of goodies that are coming my way! They mail out the goodies tomorrow~ I can't wait until Friday or so... the "stuff" looks amazing! I can't wait to play with it this weekend! I'm so excited I decided that this needed to be my special Christmas present from me... to me!!! A gift that just keeps on giving each month!!!
I'll be sure to post lots of pictures of all the fun stuff that gets made!

Vintage Valentine Swap!

I'm so looking forward to participating in Danielle's Vintage Valentine Swap! Be on the lookout for pictures of the Vintage Valentine and sweet little packs that I create!! I was beyond thrilled to get into this swap~ I'm so excited to get to know some of the other swappers~ what a great group of ladies to create with!!

Happy New Years!

Happy New Years! I hope everyone had an amazing New Years Eve!

For those of you participating in My Altered Bottle Swap~ check your email for your Altered Bottle Swap Buddy! I'm looking forward to this 1st swap of the New Year! I think the Altered Bottle will be fun and stressfree to accomplish!
I found lots of examples on Flickr but I'm not sure if I'm allowed to copy and post.. so if you are in need of examples to look at ~ I posted a few examples last week. Just go to Flickr and search~ Altered Bottles and there are quite a few really nice examples! I know we are all creative and really don't need much inspiration unless you have never done an altered bottle and you just want some clarification! Feel free to emai me if you have any questions!
Happy Creating.
Remember to mail out your bottle by January 24th! Please email me when you ship your bottle so I can mark your name off the list and please also email me when you receive your bottle!!!
Thanks for playing!
