Autumn Crafts

I take part in an online craft swap every few months. I can’t wait to see what handmade treat comes in the post for me!

I made this card for my swappee. The image is from Sassy Cheryl (a bargain at 50c!) and its coloured with Promarkers.

I am entering it in the following challenges:
Sassy Cheryl – Photo Inspiration
Passion for Promarkers – Autumn
Sketch Saturday Week 227


This is the jewelry I made for the swap.


And this is the lovely gift I recieved.  It’s a selection of soy candles.




Craft Swap

I regularly take part in a gift swap online, and had the idea to have a craft swap. Being my idea, it was up to me to organise it! Posting day was last week and it was great to see all the crafts rolling in during the week.
There was a huge variety in handmade items swapped but I’ll just show you what I made and received.
I decided to make sone jewellery, which I hadnt done in a long time. I made a black & pearl necklace with matching earrings:


I also sent some cards, but I forgot to take pictures.

I had no idea what to expect, but I was delighted with what I received. Along with a handmade card, I got two beautiful framed scrapbook layouts. One was for me, the baker, and the other for me, the mother. Love them both; am hoping to make something similar myself.



I *think* the swap was a success; hopefully it will become a regular thing.

Nursing Necklace

Baby N can be a bit fussy during feeding, so I gathered up all my cheap and colorful beads to make a long necklace to wear and for him to play with. I knotted the thread between beads for safety.
N loves it, especially jingling the bells. 🙂
