Goth Swap - What I made

Posted by Kat C on Thursday, October 24, 2013, In : Crafting 
I heard from Joss today and she has received the things I made her for the Goth Swap I was taking part in.  She loves everything so I'm so pleased.  I was getting a bit worried as it seemed to be taking forever for her to receive her parcel.  I was worried they had got lost in the post, so I was very relieved when I heard from her today.  

It was one of my favourite swaps to take part in.  I had so much fun creating the things for her.  Here's what I made.

What I made for the Geek Swap

Posted by Kat C on Sunday, May 12, 2013, In : Crafting 
Its been a busy few days due to my day job being a bit hectic.  I therefore meant to post these pics earlier but nevermind.

Here's what I made for Lisa for the Geeky Swap.

What I sent for the Geek Swap

It was a relatively small swap with us just needing to make our partners 3 items.  I chose to make a Professor Layton lavender pillow, a yoda keyring and a Sherlock Holmes gadget case.  I also sent some Thorntons toffees as I wasn't sure if they had them in the US.  I'm especially pleased with how the Sherlock Holmes pic ca...

Geek Swap - What I got

Posted by Kat C on Sunday, May 5, 2013, In : Crafting 
I forgot to do this sooner but heres the pics of what I got and sent for the Geek Swap.  There were bat hair clips, a Sherlock Holmes Necklace, a comet mug cosy, some Sherlock Holmes cards and bracelet made from resistors.  She also included some sweets, a notepad and a postcard from Michigan. 

I love the resistor bracelet so much.  Its probably my favourite item as its so unusual and delicate.  I'd never have thought of using electronic components in jewellery but it makes perfect sense.

The c...

After a few weeks off work due to health problems and being on annual leave I went back to work on Monday.  It was a bit of a struggle.  I was the first person in and almost set the alarm off because I'd unlocked the door before I thought 'can I remember the alarm code'.  Luckily my fingers knew the code even if my brain didn't :)

It was great being back and I had a lovely surprize waiting for me - my swap goodies from Jennifer (aka Green Duck).  I made myself a cuppa and got down to the most ...

I really enjoyed making the things for this swap and loving that I'm swapping again.  I'm hoping to get round to making some new things for my shop too.  I'm busy working on the Geek swap now and have nearly finished so will have a teaser pic up very soon :)

New Craft Swaps

Posted by Kat C on Monday, March 18, 2013, In : Crafting 
I think I've definitely got the swapping bug again :)  I've signed up for 2 more swaps - a Geeky Swap and a Colour Swap.  I've also looking to host my own Tim Burton themed swap.  Its been a while since I've hosted one and that's largely due to the issues of managing flakers.  I had several in the last swap I hosted and it really put me off swapping.  People seem to have come up with some swapping guidelines and I have put some in place for my next one.  I'm hoping I get a few sign up as I'm ...

Swapping & Coughing

Posted by Kat C on Wednesday, February 27, 2013, In : Crafting 
I'm feeling really grim at the moment as I have picked up some virus which has given me a nasty, dry cough.  This is affecting my asthma and mood and I've been generally feeling pretty meh :(  The cold bit of the virus is coming out though so I'm hoping I'm over the worse bit.  I've also seen the doctor and have something to take for the cough so fingers crossed it will be gone pretty soon.

In other news, I have been keeping busy with a craft swap.  The swap is on Cut Out & Keep and is a Goth ...
