I have been working on catching up the last of my swaps..I had made that list earlier..I am almost there...here is the start of my tttteeeeennnnsssy angel charms that I am making for my holiday charm swap..I stopped and skipped over to another project that is top secret...the 12 days of Christmas swap..that is due out by Monday..and since i have a couple of stragglers on the charm swap , I pushed it aside for the moment..hopefully the stragglers come in by the weekend so I can get that swapped out ASAPm too..i have Dream Street deadlines looming soon after~
any way..these little felt bodied cuties are about an inch high..i am still wondering what in the world possessed me to sew so tiny~..woah..i am a nut~
here is the result of my latest swap..mailed out Monday..we had a few international players..so fun!!..notice the cute crown on the right..that is actually a pin and from one of the gals in Australia...this was a very fun swap..many newbies that made absolutely wonderful charms~ and I am under the weather a bit today...so I treated myself to a quickie project for me!...a little angel..about 5-6"tall, inspired by the book mark on the left..I love that artist and for the life of me can't remember his/her name, from Germany if i remember correctly...what adorable fairies...so i was playing a bit today..the swaps will have to wait half a day..i am actually working on the top secret one simultaneously..hahaha, it's like me to jump back and forth in between 3 projects..lol~ I think this one would be fun to make more of one day...in all my spare time...I think though that i want to art up her dress some how..not sure what with yet!!..another day when i feel better...'creativity to the max' does not happen on sickie days..
so nothing else too exciting..it finally calmed down around here...for a couple more weeks..then the rush to get ready for our Thanksgiving family reunion will come..hope some of my family wants to come, other than my Dad and Carol. Although, I am excited about them coming..so very much...so even if it is just them...i would be happy..okay I am exagerating! and being paranoid, there is more coming! As far as I know, my mom and Russ are coming, my brother Michael and new SIL Dominique and new baby Kai and my new step niece and nephew, Sophia and Sasha are also coming...
but it sure would be fun if my biggest brother Stephan and one or two of his boys would come(Amy probably can't since they have their new store)..and my older neice and nephew Rachel and Benjamin...and my step brother and family and step sister and family....see what i mean, there are a ton more around?...okay any way I am excited..i love my family and really enjoy seeing them~...so the more the merrier...
so off to see what else my poor headachy and bodyachy body can handle doing...i just don't want to waste the day off..he he
