What I’ve Been Up To…

So, once again I’ve been MIA…sorry about that!

I’ve been busy with crafty stuff, though, so that means new things to post! Yay!

I participated in a swap on Craftster with a Halloween theme – aptly enough, it was called the Easy-Peasy 3-Point Halloween Swap. I was paired up with a wonderful gal who spoiled me rotten! First, here are the things I sent:

A felt flower pin:

Flannel backing serves as a cozy home for these quaint pumpkins – all pieces were cut and sewn by hand. It hangs from black ribbon, which is attached to the wall hanging with little leaf buttons. My swap partner indicated she wanted a wall hanging…which worked out well, because I already had it in my head to make something like this!

And here is the whole package ready to be wrapped and boxed up!

The whole shebang!

And now for the lovely package that my partner sent me!

Hooray for wonderful Swap Partners!

I love scarves! I love Fall colors! Best of all, it matches my NIN t-shirt! Score!

Oh my goodness!

Oh my goodness!

One rather unfortunate aspects of craft swaps is the possibility of having a flaker among the group. I hate to call this gal’s partner a flake, because we’re a little concerned about her well-being. I do hope some one is able to get in touch with her soon! At any rate, I volunteered to put a package together for the other swapper:

There’s Little Witchy-Poo, some Halloween socks (store bought – I’m not that talented!), some ghostie earrings that I made, some cute Halloween coasters I picked up at a shop in Nashville, IN…oh, and the little masked mystery lady…

I do hope her original partner turns up soon!

Here is a close up of the little witchy-poo…I think I might have to make a few more of these!

...and work it, girlfriend!

I sure hope she likes it! Witchy-Poo is on her way to California – I hope she has a nice ride!

Up next: Vintage Christmas Swap on Craftster.org, Christmas Gift Tag Swap on Swap-Bot, and possibly a Handmade Christmas Ornament swap on Craftster…not sure if I’ll do that one though – as much as I’d love to, I know I might be biting off more than I can chew! I still have a Halloween costume to finish before next Friday! Eek!

What craftiness have you been up to lately?
