January Hybrid Atc Swap

153 posts in this topic

Well, bummer! DH just showed me the worn elbows of his favorite Pendleton shirt and asked me to put some patches on them. That means I'll have to make a trip to Joann's tomorrow and walk right through their extensive craft section. I don't know if I can keep my eyes (and fingers) on task or not!

Diane, this might be dangerous, but try walking around the craft store...Michael's has Valentine displays set up! Or, do a search in the boutique for hearts!

 

I'm taking your advice, Carla, and heading for Michael's today. And a new JoAnn's just opened across the street from it, so I might have to stop there, too, to see if they have any patches for Ann's hubby' shirt, in case she doesn't find any. (wink wink). :D

It's so great having friends to help you out! I went and conquered....escaped with the patch material and two glitter gel pens, only because they didn't have any more!

Good for you, Ann - good going..

My "new technique" isn't coming out as I'd hoped so far. GRRrrrr... Might have to make a left turn, or maybe an about-face right now...

I'll keep trying - at least we only have to make 9, right? I so wanted it to work..

My idea isn't coming out as I hoped, either. I'm going to try to change the paper and see if that helps.

 

A brand new craft store? How fabulous!! What a cool place to visit!

Last night I watched the glue dry, tonight I'm watching the glitter dry. They're all done and ready to package up! I don't know if I'll get them into the mail tomorrow, but will for sure on Tuesday. I hope you all like them!

Well, of course they won't go into the mail today....it's a postal holiday! Tomorrow for sure. They are all packaged up and ready to go!

Do you know how many times I looked at the clock today and wondered if the mail was here yet? It didn't dawn on me that it was a holiday until about 5 pm! Glad I didn't actually go out to the mailbox! I asked the girls to get the mail for me and they knew right away it wasn't coming!

Well, DH would disagree with you about those craft stores being gold mines...he sees them as money pits! He just doesn't understand!

 

And, mine officially went into the mail today!! PLEASE let me know when they arrive, I always kind of hold my breath until the USPS comes through.

I revisited my idea today Carla and even had a consultation/help in technique so things are looking up and I'm feeling a bit more positive now.

Back to try again....

And Ann - I am in awe of you finished already.

Lauren is very opinionated, so if she likes it, she really does!

 

I need to sit and work on my cards. Had a busy weekend with Mom here!

Ooohhhh.... I can't wait to see the cards! I hauled home a bunch of stuff from the craft stores (well, you never know when that stuff might come in handy, right?) and I finally have an inspiration. :) Now to get to work!

 

By the way, sign me up for the consultation! :lol:

Haha Sherry - I can't quite explain now as it would give away the new technique I am trying. Suffice it to say, I consulted with a friend who is an expert in this medium and she gave me some tips and ideas and even showed me how. I sure hope it works for me.

I knew a trip to the craft store would help, Diane! I just got a Michael's gift card, so I'll head over there this week!
