March Swap

Swap a Month for 2011!
January's swap~ altered bottles was wonderful! I'm working on the post now of the amazing bottle pictures!!
February's swap~ Bird swap is in the creating phase now!
It is time to announce and sign up for March's Swap~ This one is a Tussie Mussie swap! What is a Tussie Mussie you ask~ it is a delightful display cone that can be used to hold flowers, candies & trinkets.
You create your fanciful tussie mussie from a sturdy paper mache base and embellish it with a variety of vintage papers, ephemera, ribbons, rhinestones,dresden, vintage findings, crepe paper, tassels & fringe.
I would like ours to be quite fancy!! Remember less is just less~ so add tons of fun!
This will be a one for one swap~
You will create one Tussie Mussie and receive one in return.
You will add lots of embellishements to your creation! Make it something that you would want to display in your own home! Pull out your good stuff! You can go with a Vintage Easter theme, a Victorian theme, Shabby Chic ~ you can ask your partner what colors they enjoy or just create from the heart something that you would love! No bold colors though! Keep in vintage , victorian or shabby chic!
You will fill your Tussie Mussie with a bit of Vintage ephemera that can later be used in your buddies future projects.

Sign ups will open today February 12th and go through February 18th. I will send your your parters information on February 20th. You will have until March 20th to create your Tussie Mussie. Please mail the week of March 21st so that your buddy will have it in their hands by April 1st.
If you have any questions just drop me an email or comment below.
I look forward to swapping with you!!!

A Vintage Dragonfly's Vintage Valentine Swap...

I also participated in Danielle Mueller's Vintage Valentine Swap! We created one Vintage Valentine for a partner and 12 mini bundles of treasures! It was a very fun swap! I had so much fun creating the Valentine! I sewed..(my sewing machine does not like glitter paper), glued and more! Loved the circle punches rolled up and glued!!
We should be receiving our packages of love this week!!! I'll be sure to be stalking the postman! Danielle will be doing a blog post as well with all of the Valentines! She does great photography so be sure to check it out on her blog in the following weeks!!

Ruth Rae's Heart Swap!

I had so much fun participating in Ruth Rae's Heart Swap a few weeks back! We all had to create 5 hearts~ not many rules!!! So it was amazing to see what creativity each artist brought to their hearts! Some were small.. some were large! Loved it!!!
Here are mine...
