I've always wanted to join one of her swaps but the time was never right for me. But lucky me...I'm IN now!!! :)))
Jessica always hosts the most funnest (is that a word?) swaps.
Her tags (& everything else she makes) are just gorgeous!!
I'm so honored to be in this one, but I must say ... I made the deadline to sign up for this one by the skin of my teeth as I was emailing her from the airport on my way to Savannah! whew!!!
I love Leslie's blog ... she's so creative.
Here are a few sneak peeks without spoiling her surprise...
We were to make a fabric wall hanging (no smaller than 8.5 x 11) with no less than three pockets.
Hint #1: Leslie's will be huge! :)
Pink is a favorite color of Leslie, plus she likes aqua, blue and green too.
For those of you who know me, you know that pink and aqua are really not in my vocabulary.
So therefore, I kind of shabbied (is that a word too?) everything up by adding some well worn pieces and some aging to make it all have a vintage feel.
Then, we were to load the pockets with LOTS of goodies!
Hint #2: Leslie's will be stuffed! :)
Don't get me wrong, working with the pink and aqua was a blast because it was challenging for me (and I LOVE challenges).
Being a long-time reader of Leslie's blog, I really think I got a feel of what she likes.
She likes vintage.
So therefore, I have used vintage pink flowers, vintage velvet, vintage laces, and vintage pieces ... all strategically combined with pink and aqua ;)
Hint #3: Leslie's will be GORGEOUS!
I better stop now before I give it all away.
I'm finished and I'm ready to mail it. I'll be sad to see it leave.
Do you ever want to keep everything you make?
I DO ... it's so hard to give it to the mailman, it's like my fingers are glued to the box ... literally! But, since he's always bringing me some beautiful goodies, I really need to get over that! haha
I can't show you the final masterpiece until Leslie receives it. Our deadline is the 31st of this month so you really don't have to stay on the edge of your seat until then...okay? ;)
I promise to show you more at a later date.
I hope your weekend was wonderful...mine surely was!
She's made some awesome goodies recently so if you have the time...please go take a peek :)
