No problem at all. I don't mind shipping international, I love seeing what I get from them too because its often items that we don't have in the U.S. too! So worst case, you'll get me as the SS, haha. Could be worse, really...

I actually keep forgetting I'm in Canada...lol..I think that's probably why I haven't joined a swap or anything else for that matter in a long while.

*altered clock

Would you like something seasonal or holiday decor? If so, which season/holiday? - Nope I'm good.

What colors would you like most? Blues, soft blues, turquoise blues....any kind of blue...lol soft pinks and purples and naturals, such as canvas colors or burlap colors.. Does that make sense LOL

Friday night I went to Archivers Crop Night so I could spread out on a big table there and just get creative.
I made my altered gift for you so will try to get it mailed this week!!!
I had a blast with it. I walked around their store and there it was... calling out to me from a bottom shelf... almost missed it... and then I went nuts with embellishments and a theme... even the clerks at the store came by to watch.

I told my DH what I was making and that I was giving it away in a swap and he says he wants your gift! LOL! He is loving it! Too funny, but he can't have it.

Now you got my curiosity up of what you are making me!

I have been sorting through alot of my older crafting supplies in the basement and came across a box of great wooden cigar boxes that I had acquired years ago. I think I am going to use one of these to create on since my swap pal mentioned something for storage. When we moved in our house 11 years ago I never finished unpacking all the boxes in the basement. Less than a year after moving in I was diagnosed with breast cancer and that halted the unpacking process, then somehow it never got finished. So I have been going through the stuff little by little to find what treasures I have in those boxes.

Me... I'm pretty sure its in my blood. My mom has always been a crafter, was an art teacher when she was young in Japan for a bit, was a seamstress always as a job too or side business, so as long as I can remember, I have crafted. My mom made all sorts of detailed beautiful Barbie doll clothes when I was little and would sell them to others also... she would make lovely evening gowns in satin with sequins, etc. and then package them up on cardboard with saran wrap and my sisters would take them around in a basket to all their friends homes for their parents to 'shop.' (This was in the 50's and 60's mind you, a different and much safer era and it was usually on military bases and overseas.) I remember sitting on the floor in my mom's sewing room when I was little, and they would give me the button jars to play with, and my sister tells the story of me being two years old and she would give me a dull needle with thread and scrap fabric to sew on while they sewed with my mom.

I have two older sisters too that craft always, though each of us is very different in personality and likes/dislikes. One of my nieces is a big crafter too. My daughter goes through phases but now is very big into knitting and jewelry and sells her pieces every year to make enough to pay for her travel/vacations around the world. My dad was a carpenter and draftsman as well as a mechanic... and my older brother learned that from him too. So I also grew up sitting on a high stool in the garage where his workshop was, watching them make incredible wood cabinets and doll furniture for me. In fact, my brother one year was using a table saw to make me something and I apparently distracted him and he cut off a part of his thumb and had to be rushed to a hospital. Not a good memory... to this day I get nervous hearing the sounds of a table saw.
I still have the hope chest he made me for my senior high graduation too.
My son also inherited those skills from my dad and brother... and proof to me that it must be in the blood is that he never met my dad and only saw my brother once I think for a few days when he visited us. But yet, my son has almost identical aptitudes for engineering/building/mechanics/crafting -- he used to make all sorts of origami and hemp macrame necklaces and bracelets to sell in high school, made his own custom longboards with custom airbrush/screen painting, etc.

So its in the blood.

Yes, it was one night at Archivers... I had fun with it, went a little overboard but loved it. I won't post pics yet... but I'll hint that it has to do with time and TH stuff.
