Ack, so the last little thing I was going to make erica_tattoos is not going as planned. I went to the store to try to find a certain something I needed for it and came up empty...I might try to make a sewn fabric version - lord knows I have enough fabric scraps to pull that off. I'll give it a shot and if it doesn't work out I'll go back to plan A and venture online to find that missing item.

I'm also incredibly aggravated that I mailed out Ludi's package LAST SUNDAY!!! and it still hasn't arrived. Wtf! I've never had a domestic package take that long to ship. So annoying.

I have been so out of the loop lately. I got into a car accident last Tuesday (not my fault, and I'm ok thankfully) which meant I spent pretty much the rest of the week dealing with the consequences...had no car, talking with the insurance company/auto shop every day, and then finally decided with my bf that the most sensible thing to do was buy a brand new car this weekend (the likelihood of the old one getting fixed was not great - 12 years old with more damage than the car is worth). So can you say exhausting?! Anyway, with the shock of all that behind me now (still working on resolving what's happening with the old car) I think I can finally get into the crafting again!

So sorry I missed commenting on everyone's lovely stuff! I was still lurking - craftster, in addition to be a tremendous inspiration, is a great distraction to life's little crap piles of crap - and love seeing what everyone is working on.

I have been crafting slowly, mostly for the IYP. I hope to have some stuff to share soon! I am also starting to think of Christmas already!?! Anyone else there yet too? Funny enough I think I already have more than half the people on my list figured out - this will be the year of the mass production gifts - i.e. I'm thinking of dabbling in flavored liqueurs and jars of soup mix, and a nice portrait of me and my bf (we haven't had a formal picture taken in years) that I might use Fracture to translate to a really high quality glass print.

Haha, now that I've finally broken my radio silence, I can't shut up! Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

That first patch turned out great! I'm so happy I could inspire you to make your own - I can't wait to see more  Smiley

Oh always, that sucks! I was only a bit sore in my upper body, arms, and hands this morning. It definitely could have been much worse, so I'm very thankful I don't have any medical issues in addition to car issues.

In other news, between insurance calls, etc, I finished erica_tattoos' large item! I also made/ordered a fun extra that I'm going to enjoy sharing with her and the rest of my family later hehe. And now, since it won't arrive til around Sept 8th I have extra time to craft some more for her  Cheesy

Thanks everyone for all the well-wishes.

After seeing the guy's face at the collision center, I think I may be shopping for a new car this weekend. Anyone want to craft me a car?  Cheesy I think I'd enjoy that much more than dealing with car salespeople.

I meant to finish erica_tattoos large last night but my plans were interrupted by an unplanned car accident (though are they ever planned?). I'm ok, my car not so much. *sigh* Now I have to take time off from work to figure out getting it fixed or getting a new car. I should be excited by that prospect right?...though I'm more so annoyed and anxious...at least I still have some craft therapy ahead of me!

Ack - my computer has been felled again and I'm having a hard time keeping up on my ipod - so many great things!! I'm so in love with those octo coasters! I love the technique. And the pet portraits are so personal and lovely! Sorry if I'm forgetting anything at the moment. It's all fantastic  Cheesy

Ludi - I'm not familiar with the movie your twinchie is referencing but am intrigued now to check it out! Also, great looking potato  Wink Cheesy

madcrafter - I could totally tell that was a pomegrante right away! Great job with the stumpwork - I think the seeds are my favorite part, even if they're a bit large for the scale of the fruit, it still looks great!

I finished and mailed out Ludi's package today! And I got a ton of work done on Erica_tattoo's large so I should be able to finish and mail out her package soon I hope. First to do a little research on how to finish said item - it's looking awesome right now and I hope I don't botch the next to last step *fingers crossed*
