Dotty Swap

Today is Holly's Dotty Swap reveal.  I like to use these swaps as a way to push myself creatively.  Rather than continue to craft in the same rut over and over.

  Swaps give me a chance to step outside my comfort zone.  This one had me ripping seams, trashing projects, and working on things I didn't think I ever would.

In return my amazing swap partner Angelina of Ruby Jean has spoiled me dotty!

Whitman linen books, dotty darling fabric and the most amazing vintage tin horn I have ever seen.

Who could resist this face?

I sent Miss Angelina...dotty scissors with a felt fob and scissor keeper.

A place for those polka dot pins...

An applique house full of dots for them all!  Enjoy them Angelina.

Holly this was a wonderful Swap.  Thank you for hosting.

Sweet Valentine's 

Letters of loveliness on the wings of friendship.
Thank you Molly

Wow! You and all the gals in this swap are amazing crafters. The swap looked like such fun! But adding crafting deadlines to my busy life would not be such a good thing to do. So I ooh and aww and then step away. Maybe when I retire.

Oh Renee!
Your partner really knew you! I so wanted to be in this swap, but my partner had to drop out and she is one of my friends here in Arizona so it wouldn't have been all that fun as we know each other so well! LOL I hope next time I can participate!!!! I love the idea of this swap!

Wow, what great Dotty surprises! I think you guys did a fantastic job with creative ideas for this swap. I am going to be a little behind in my reveal with Mom Wald's Place, as I had some issues getting hers to her in the time frame. But she is such a great sport understanding life some times has its curve balls. Thanks for sharing what you guys swapped! They are so cute!

I always enjoy seeing what others put together in swaps and your goodies always inspire. Your scissor keeper is just precious! What a fun swap!

Congrats dear friend, to both of you. Both of you did an amazing job and you're both so blessed. As you might have guessed, I was Sandy's partner and since we see each other a lot, and know each other so well, it really would have just been like any other day. We're always giving each other stuff.

Have a great day,
