Swaps, Swaps, and more Swaps!

This is my extremely late swap stuff I sent to Lisa for the Mermaid Swap.
I colored the mermaids and then sewed beads on to embellish them.

Her top and belt area are all beaded

Just for fun I sent Lisa some mermaid coloring sheet and a box of crayons (I love a new box of crayons), Swedish fish, the Goldfish crackers got eaten by Jace before I stuck them in the box, OOPS! I also sent some seashells, sea stuff confetti, little glass stones, a bottle of sea salt and I crocheted a starfish and seahorse.
I accidentally deleted a bunch of pictures that were on my camera before I uploaded them. This is one of the bags that I made for the kids swap. This one went to Miranda. One of her wishes was to go to Hawaii so Ezie picked out the fabric for the bag, an orange towel, a tiki cup, some Hawaiian window clings, a notebook and a skip it. I'm just sent off my 15 tags for the Good Ole' Summer Time Swap and should have my set of 15 tags back sometime late next week. I'm excited to see what everyone made. I am also working on my Alice in Wonderland Shadowbox Swap Item and the Children's Sewing Kit Swap. They both have to be out before next Friday, so hurry, hurry, hurry!!
