A little of this & A little of that but all fun

Hello Friends, As you can tell, I have been gone for quiet a while. Well, I really don't have an excuse except that I have been so engrossed in Swap-Bot  that I have totally neglected my Blog. I started a group on Swap-Bot and have been trying to think of swaps that I can hold in the group. Please, Come on over and check it out. Once you get started, You just cant do 1 swap. At the end of this post, I will share some of the awesome swaps I have been in!
I have also been trying to get ready for the up coming Holidays. I have also really slacked on my Christmas cards. That's is going to change this weekend. I have a Cookie exchange to go to on Saturday but for the rest of the weekend I will be creating. Instead of mass producing the same card, I make about 7 or 8 different ones. I just have to be difficult. LOL!
So, Onto the creations that I wanted to share with you all, I really hope you all like them and don't forget to share your opinions. I love to hear what you all have to say! So for now, I will see you all real soon!
  
This is my creation for the Shabby chic & Pink Altered Altoids tin

Shabby Chic,Froofy,Pink Tag swap


I actually made this for one of my swaps but didn't like how it turned out so I replaced it with the Pink one above!

A swap and Swap-Bot

Hello all, Well here I am with a project  that I have been working on. This specific Tag is a swap that I am in on Splitcoaststampers. It is a "Love" theme. I really like the way they turned out. Most of the embellishments used on these tags is Tim Holtz. I love love love his products. I am also lovin the shabby chic,Vintage look as well.  I completed 7 of these tags and in return, I will get 6 different tags back. the only thing is these are not due until Jan 25th. LOL! I was on a creative roll so I took advantage of that!! 
The really really cool part of these is the ribbon. I actually tea dyed fabric and then stamped on it with Tuxedo black ink as you can see in the bottom right picture. 
Now, I want to bring up another great site for swaps. Swap-Bot. I would love to see some of my friends come and join my group over there. I have a ton of swap Ideas that I am sure you will all love. My main idea right now is that of an altered cigar box filled with (I haven't decided on an amount yet) stamping/scrapping goodies. that sounds like fun right? Or maybe Themed ATC's?   Maybe even hand made flowers? The one good thing about swap-bot is that most of the time, You only have 1 partner. The only time you have more than one partner is when the person who is hosting the swap creates a swap with multiple partners. I just love this site so much, I want all of my creative friends to join, There are swaps for every interest under the sun.Come on over and check it out and maybe even join. I would love to see some of my followers joining in on some swaps. These are somemore of the ideas I have for some swaps,, Themed ATC's ,Altered tag swaps, Altered Altoid tins, Themed match box with little goodies. I have so many ideas of swaps that I want to do plus, if you are interested in becoming an officer in my group, you will have special privileges and even host your own swaps as well. If you have any ?'s regarding becoming an officer, please email me, I would love to hear  from you!! If you join Swap-Bot, Don't forget to search  for my group "Altering papercrafts extravaganza" 
I hope to see you over at Swap-Bot, We will have so much fun!!!
