Ribbon Doll Swap- Reminder

Swap is due to me Friday May 31st, let me know if you are playing and need more time.
Hi Ladies, I saw these dolls and thought what a great way to use some of the ribbons and
  fibers that I know we all have. 
Use a photo, a stamped image, a collage image or even a painted image of a head and torso.
What ever you decide to use embellish her bling her up with lots of ribbons and imagination.
My only requirement is to have fun designing her.

some examples of Ribbon dolls:

  This swap will be due to me (Doris) May 31st.  Please contact me with any questions.
Have Fun.

Miriam's Altered Postcard Swap

Miriam is hosting an altered postcard swap. The theme is "April showers bring May flowers". You must include some pretty ribbons and do both sides of the card. Think flowers, gardens, parasols... The samples shown are from a recent swap Miriam participated in and are just to give you some ideas of what she is looking for. This will be a one for one swap.
Email Maura at to get the postcard for the swap (send me your address and I will mail it to you) I have 15 postcards, and we could order more if needed.
Email Miriam at with any questions you may have, and her address if you need it, to mail them to her. Miriam will be handling the exchange of postcards.
April showers bring May flowers will be due to Miriam on May 1.

And don't forget the backs too.
Hope to see you at the swap!

Halloween Gathering Postponed to Oct 2013

Hi Ladies, I just wanted to let you know what Beth and I have decided to do about the Halloween Gathering that we had to cancel due to the weather. After much consideration we decided to wait until October 2013 to hold it. This will give those that wanted to do the Witches Hat but ran out of time more I hope this news isn't to disappointing but we felt due to scheduling conflicts this was the best alternative.
