I am a very blessed lady to have been able to make it to convention this year and I was not going to take it for granted. I filled my convention schedule and loved every minute of it!! :-)
I created 100 general card front swaps (like I have done other years)
I also decided to create a few 3D swaps to have on hand as it always seems that there are ladies that are swapping 3D items as well. I was able to get 24 done! Here are some pictures and a video on how to recreate them yourself!!
THEN I decided to sign up for organized swaps! Something I have seen going on but hadn't tried before. I always wondered how people fit it in and had so much time to prep all that. WELL, now I know!! It CAN be done!
I took part in Show Off Swap in 2 of the 5 catagories (Friendship and Thank you) These were full cards and I had to do 15 for each group.
I also took part in the 3x3 Love Note Swap. THIS ONE WAS FAB! There were 50 in our group (we were group 2...there were 80 in group 1!!!) so I made 50 full 3x3 note cards. ..and guess what? I forgot to snap a photo of mine!!! BOO!!
I also made a few gifties for my convention pals and roomies. I made us each a notebook with a matching pen, a big claw clip attached and an inside cover pocket for loose papers. I know I used mine...I hope theirs were just as useful!
Last on the list, I always try to make something to wear. This year I redid my button bracelet (now that we have NEW buttons!), made a ring out of the buttons and brads and I made stamp earrings!!!!!! So excited that I finally did this. I have been thinking about it for a while now.
I had a BLAST this year at convention (as always!) and can't wait to try again next year. I already have a folder of pics saved on my computer of projects to make! LOVE IT!! Hope you have gathered some inspiration from this post.
