I'm Swamped with Swaps!

Well, I found time to relax in the Command Center.  I've joined two more swaps on Splitcoast Stampers and started another one of my own.  I worked on these bottlecap magnets.  I really liked the way they turned out and they were so fast and easy!

I still need to work on the holders which will be can lids.  This is truly a recycled project.  First of all I still have lots of bottlecaps from the beer winnings (woo hoo), the holders are recylced can lids and even the buttons are old buttons that are in a jar.  I did however use a paperpad that I've had for a while now and never used - you know the kind, have to have it right now but of course you forget all about it.  LOL

I also started drifting and made these cute ticket embellishments which encouraged me to start a new swap on Splitcoast Stampers for these:
I love how they turned out.  Another recycled project since these tickets are from old raffle tickets that we never won.  You see, you're always a winner when raffle tickets are involved :).  I have a whole drawer of these and need to do something with them.  They come in such great colors, they are so hard to throw away.

Ok, I'll confess, I'm pretty sure this is called hoarding...but the good kind, right?

If you're a Splitcoast Stamper member and interested in this swap, go here.
