If you know me, then you know that I just love handmade scrappy items. I thought that it would be a very nice change of pace to have a secret sister swap that challenges your creativity while spoiling someone in the process.

The rules of this swap are as follows:

1. You must complete the survey for yourself and pm it to me to send to your secret sister to use as a guide for her shopping/handmades.
2. There will be a $10.00 purchase minimum. This means purchase an item or multiple small items totalling $10.00 (or more if you wish), to include in your secret sister's package.
3. You must make at least 10 handmade items to include in your sister's package(or more if you wish). If you make items as a set, it will count as 1 handmade item.
4. Send some type of treat that your sister could enjoy as she enjoys her special package.
5. NO FLAKERS!! Everyone who participates wants to get their package in return. Please be considerate of all who participate!
6. Make sure that you check in with us at least once a week.
7. Be creative and have fun with this swap!!

Your sister should have her package in her hands no later than November 1st. This should give everyone time to complete all of their handmades and shop for their secret sister.


Feel free to add items from your stash as well. Some items to consider adding to your package...handmade flowers, stick pins, charm dangles, gussied up chipboard items, altered items, handmade butterflies, tags, journaling blocks, titles, embellished die cuts, cardstock from your stash, embellies from your stash, premade layouts. Make sure that it is something that you would like to receive in return.

**Since this is a mostly handmade swap, make sure that you do your best work on all of your items.**

Make sure that your wish list here is updated so that your sister can browse through it and get a sense of what appeals to you.

I will ask that you complete a small survey to give everyone an idea of your likes and dislikes. I also suggest that you cruise through your sister's gallery to get a feel for her scrappy style. This will help you make sure that your sister will get something that she enjoys and is able to use on her projects. Once you complete the survey, send it to me in a pm along with your address and I will send each one to the appropriate secret sister to be used as a guide for shopping/making her goodies. Once I receive all surverys and addresses, I will swap the sisters out and send out a PM with your sister's address and completed survey.

**Everyone please copy and complete this survey and pm it to me with your name and address for yourself. I will then foward it to your secret sister to use as a guide.

HELP!!!!! I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I'm trying to use embossing power but it won't work. I'm doing everything video clip said as far as I know. What am I doing wrong? I'm using embossing ink & powder.

what exactly isnt working?

if the powder isnt adhered meaning it brushes off then heat it up a bit longer. if using regular embossing powder NOT the distress embossing powders they should become a bit shiny i guess the word is as for the distress that one I always feel i;m burning it lol

was that some help?

I'll have to try again tomorrow. I don't have a heating tool, used hair dryer. Could that be the problem or I just didn't heat long enough? How long does it take?

Ladies for those of you who were here last month I received my box and posted pictures to the thread this is a must see. Take a few seconds and look at what was sent!!! I had such a bad day yesterday and when I got home from the ER my husband said there is a box for you sitting on the couch. So I went in the livingroom and picked it up half hearted went back into my room to open it I did not even look at the names on the box or what swap it was from. So I opened it and first I see my fav candy which made the corner of my mouth twich as I removed some packing materials I let out a yell. DH come to check on me he though I fell again. He looked at me and said what is wrong. I was beaming from ear to ear! I was just so over whelmed with the box. Please take a few seconds and look. Thank you again Ms Amy for all the beatuiful goodies!

Amy I felt like it was a never ending box! I used the Homemade glimmer mist today!! I tried to make some flowers my flowers did not come out to bad but the mist is so nice! Of course it is Saturday so Ms Trinity is glued to my sholder watching everything I do. She asked grandma what is that pink stuff you are spraying? I said just watch and see. When we dried the paper she yell out OHHHHHH Sparkly. I do love this mist. No more tattered angles for me LOL.
Of course she sat here helping me eat my candy the nerve of her.

I fill my spray bottle 3/4 full of water, then put some metallic (acrylic) paint in, I then put 1 good drop of white glue (I use Tacky glue, but elmer's will work to), then I add alcohol to fill the bottle almost to the top...leave room for shaking. I never really measure anything out, but it always seems to work well for me. The more acrylic, metallic paint that you use, the more shimmery it will be. I hope that this is helpful to you all. I vowed to never spend $5 a bottle on glimmer mist again! LOL!!!

I have one things made. I have lots of ideas but I have been kinds achey like I have the flu...so I have not been wanting to do anything but sit on the sofa the last two days.

I am on some fertility meds (first round) and I think I am being tested...LOL. Like if I complain about THIS how will I be able to stand morning sickness, mood swings, back aches, and all the other aches and pains of an expecting woman....oh and the hot flashes. Why do I have to have those????

I got some handmades done and some store bought things... I actually tried out a die I have had for awhile and made some flowers. They turned out nice but they need something in the middle.

I need to get this done so I can start on my Hliday and Chanukah cards. I am getting some Halloween cards out this week. I just made a few for the little boys in my family and my neice.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend.

Just checking in. I have a few more things made and went out and shopped a bit today.

I was supposed to go on a LSS road trip with my crop group today but had a soar throat this morning. We were going to make the rounds of LSSes...we have a few around here in the DFW area. I am so mad I didnt get to go. But I did get out a bit and went to a local charity shop (well 3 of them LOL) and in one I found a big bad with a TON of seam binding. I am so excited to try that out on some projects. At another I found a few things to use in projects and when I went to check out the lady said "everything half off" soI only spent 3.00. I was thilled.

I also went to Target and they had some We R Memory Keepers things for Project Life type of scrapping. I bought a few journaling tablets and some insert refills that had differnt ways to insert your photos.

Then I went to HL and foudn some things for my SS and a few things for myself.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend.

Tiffany

Becca, I certainly hope that you start to feel well soon. Everyone in my house has been sick the last couple of weeks. I had to go to work with a 102 degree temp a few weeks ago. I struggled to make it through 3 shifts during my illness. I am still having to take breathing treatments every day. I do hope that you fee better soon, sweetie!

Tiffany it sounds like you had a productive day despite the fact that you didn't get to go on your shopping adventure, you made your own adventure! I love it!

Ladies I think that I am going to put this swap on hold until after Christmas when we finish this round. The holidays are such a busy time for everyone. I know that I just don't have the time that I would like to devote to this swap during the holidays. I hope to see you all back after the holidays, though.

I'm afraid my package is not going to go out in time. With all thats been going on and me sick in the hospital I just haven't been able to complete everything. I will get it out as soon as I can though. I'm not flaking.

I need to work on mine this week, so mine might go out to my pal a few days late. I am getting her goodies this week as well, but I am working on her handmade goodies.

How is everyone? Was and is anyone in the path of the storm? If so are you okay? I'm praying for God's mercy on each of you.
