I have been working on two swaps for a Yahoo Group I am a part of, a September Surprise for one person and a Fall/Halloween swap for 11 people.
My surprise swap could be any theme/occasion and my person likes brighter colors. When I saw the butterflies from Gecko Galz, I knew I had to use them. Also, the doily dress was something I have been wanting to try for a while.
Supplies: will add them later
For the Fall/Halloween swap, I knew I had to make 11 of them so I needed supplies that I had in large quantity, like beads, spools, ribbon, and flowers; rubber stamps; printed images from Gecko Galz, paint and inks. Edgar Allan Poe is my favorite author, has been since I was 10, reading his stories in 5th grade. He is also very popular right now for Halloween artwork so I had to use him in a shrine/shadow box made from a mini cereal box. I want to make ones for the authors of Dracula and Frankenstein so I can have a nice literary trio. I am such a nerdy librarian!
Supplies: will add soon
Happy Scrappy Savings!
