Secret Craftster swap

Here are the crafts I made for the Secret Craftster Swap on

all together:
a tree punch needle embroidery pin, a bookmark made from a book spine, a poly clay rubber stamped with a leaf stamp magnet, a star, heart and flowery polkadotted magnet frames and a little denim purse

she also said that she wanted to learn how to make ATCs so I sent an ATC kit with ribbon, scissors, glue stick, paper scraps, card covers, markers, embelishments and lots of hints on how to make ATCs

she said she loved it! :)

not much in the crafting front....

this is something growing by my gate...
I have heard people actually read this so I guess I should put something worth reading on here....hmmmm lets see, what have I done crafty lately? Not much. I am getting things ready for my yard sale so I have not had much time. I also got a new job at the Dev. Preschool (right back where I started 8 years ago) but getting paid much better and only working 15 hours a week, that leaves time to see clients in the afternoons.
I will see if I can dig up some old craft projects for your viewing pleasure....

I made a little ducky blanket for my friend Maria's baby shower and a monster for the big brother!
here is fuz getting ready for the yard sale
