i am trying to clear out some room
in my apartment and lab…
i love stuff but i just have too much of it.
so i am trying to narrow my items down
to well-defined collections…
only a certain type of pyrex bowl
from a particular era.
now's your chance to benefit
from all my years of thrift shopping!
another great way to clear out your space
is to join in on simple sparrow’s
use what you have challenge
for the month of april.
it’s been sweeping the craft blogs
i think that we all feel like our stashes
have gotten a little outrageous.
i have been good
about staying away from yarn
but i do have a weakness for
this has inspired bloggers to do stash swaps
like this one
organized by simple sparrow.
i missed out on that one
but i did join in on
the april made stuff swap.
i heart swaps.
maybe i just heart snail mail.
so if you are interested in swapping with me
i do have lots of fabric, collage papers, and yarn.
i would be happy
to swap all or any one of these things.
if you are interested, email me at:
bugheart at g mail dot com.
i have been working on two swaps
to be mailed off this weekend.
i have had some very unsuccessful
felted egg cozies
for the egg cozy swap.
the first test cozy that i made was huge
so i filled it with catnip
and gave it to spot.
she went crazy…
maybe too much catnip?
and still crazy in the morning:
the last few cozies are much better.
i am trying to perfect
bug and bird shapes.
not as easy as i thought.
it never is.
i worked on my next bird
on the metro today:
enjoy a productive monday!
