1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Craft Swaps / Re: Scrappy Happy Swap (SIGNUP 04/15/15 - 04/22/15; MAIL BY 05/18/15) on: April 15, 2015 09:47:29 PM
Oh, this sounds perfect for me! I'm signing up right away because I'm going to be away from home for a week and I don't know how much Internet access I'll have.

Looking forward to this!

I agree, Ludi - it's better to be late with something you're proud of than settle for being on time with not-as-good.

The snow is mostly gone here now, although of course we got so much less than you did in Quebec, Maman. It was actually pleasantly warm both yesterday and today, which is the first for this year!

I know Edel is about to mail her package to me (and I'm inwardly jumping up and down in childish excitement about what's in the teaser photo), I'm going to go ahead and open the Gallery. I'll be away from home for a week from this Thursday (the 16th) until the 22nd, for a visit to New York, and I'm never sure how much Internet access I'll have away from home, so if you PM me and don't get a response right away (or for a week), that's why.

I'm trying really, really hard to get my package ready to send by Wednesday afternoon before I leave, but I make no guarantees. There's a lot of other stuff to get ready and suddenly no time left to do it! Shocked

Okay, here's the gallery for when we need it: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=438907.0

And a reminder to everyone we haven't heard from this week (you know who you are...) to post something here in the swap thread just to let us know you're still with us. How're you doing? How's the weather on your continent?

A month of crafting time - what will I occupy my time with for the first 28 days? Wink

So glad you decided to give us another one - I've been looking forward to it too.

I regularly pull out a tee shirt or a bag and when it gets compliments and 'where did you get it'... get to say...with a pleased smile on my face..' oh someone made it for me'

Isn't that just the best part of participating in swaps? All the more so because the best things we receive from swap partners are usually very unusual or virtuoso creations, which inevitably draw attention.

I was just about to hit "reply" when you posted this, crazyda! Hector's head is actually very simple, but just right. And I didn't mention how much I admire the way you simplified the body to such a minimalist cylindrical shape. I don't think I could've done that!

I received from crazyda79 yesterday! One of the themes on my list was "animal astronauts"...

... so she made me "Hector", the first French rat sent into space, in 1961.

Look at his little ratty head! (The helmet, incidentally, is a brilliantly re-purposed vending machine capsule.)

I'm so glad you chose this theme - I was secretly hoping that would be the one my partner would pick! And it was so clever of you to pass over the more famous dogs and monkeys and pick one that could be made more-or-less life-size. Hector is very cute, and I like him a lot!

I just realized I've done that thing where I was so eager for my package to arrive that I forgot to follow the Gallery! Embarrassed But that's ok because I means I get to look at ten pages of celestial dotees at once! It's hard to pick a favourite, but I think it'd have to be the first, Moonbeam. Such a nice combination of shapes, colours and textures. I'd never get tired of looking at her.

As I hoped, my star sower dotee wasn't as bad as I'd remembered. Cheesy I'm glad you like her. And Mamarose, I'm so glad you recognized the colour as being the blue-black of the sky just as night has fallen and the first stars appear. I had made a first attempt which failed completely, and found that scrap of dark blue silk which made me think of trying something nice and simple instead.

I've received a wonder animal astronaut from crazyda! Photos tomorrow.
