Cupcake magnets

cupcake-magnets-for-blog.jpg

Although I blogged this over at Pod Bobbins, I just wanted to share a pic of my cupcake magnets all packed up for the WLS Polymer Clay swap.  Hope my partner likes.

One for Freud

Earlier this evening I had to make a cd mix for swapping with the theme “word association”. So my words ended up going from:

love

sex

fantasy

island

holiday

rain

umbrella

water

wet

dry

hands

finger

lips

kiss

sexy

love

hate

sad

happy

girl

boy

…what does that say about what’s on my mind?

Haremail Update

Further to Operation Haremail, I found out who my partner is today. She’s a known scammer on some swap sites, so no bunnies for me. Emma Timney (“Accidents”) of Glasgow Scotland, you suck. You’ve ripped off a lot of good people from Swap-Bot, hope Karma finds you and kicks you in the arse.

PS. Luckily my buddy Ella sent me a great bunny themed package for a swap we did, so I do have some bunny joy.

Haremail Update

This week I got my Operation Haremail parcel together. So my final parcel’s gone now.
I was actually surprised by the trouble I had finding rabbit items, especially at this time of year. All the bunnies I encountered were choccy or big soft toys. So I’m not satisfied with my effort for this swap, but in the interests of being on time, it’s too late to worry about it much now.
Here’s what I came up with:

There’s bunny cookie cutters, bendy bunnies, choccy bunnies, a bunny-pop, stickers, a handmade softie, and a bunny pattern pouch that I made.

I think the back of my bunny softie is cuter than the front:

I hope my partner likes it. And I hope my sending partner doesn’t flake on me!

Monday Mail Joy

Lately I have been busting my chops trying to send lovely swap packages out to people, and it’s always fun to receive one in return! Monday is a great day for mail, because it seems to stack up over the weekend or something at the Post Office. Today’s mail brought me some teabags from the lovely Laura in the UK (that Customs didn’t steal this time!) a copy of Vanessa’s zine, and this swap package from Amanda in the USA:

You know when you open a package, and keep unwrapping it and finding more stuff and going “Squee!”* with excitement. Well this one did it for me. A gorgeous handmade purse, handmade bracelets in my fave colour, ribbon, ultra cute notepad, little sock purse, mini scrapbook and mega cool cupcake pincushion. Thanks Amanda! Yay!

*I used to have a black and white rabbit called Squee, named because of said squee noise.
