11  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Another Crafty Detective Swap!! send outs extended to 5-08!!! on: May 05, 2009 08:16:05 AM
Ugghh... I've been off my computer since last Wednesday! I've been so busy with my little sister visiting. We've already been to the zoo, a dog festival, slumber party weekend with my niece, and bought 2 gerbils. I wanted to let my organizer, my stalker, and even my stalkee know that I'm alive and will be doing the finishing details over the next couple of days.


For the people with kids: My 12yr old sister is home schooled technically but she does online schooling and it's the most amazing thing ever. All of her school books are in pdf format online and you can see the overall grades change daily. Some days her schooling takes 30 minutes others it can take a couple of hours but I don't even need to sit there while she does it. Check out preg_replace('/(.{19})/', '$1 ', 'www.connectionsacademy.com') it's truly amazing and I wish I would have gone to school online. You can work ahead and go to college at 16.

I'm taking full advantage of the extra week! My large item is actually a kit mixed with some finished items of that particular kit. And after today I'm so busy until Monday. I have sorority meetings (Tues), a Founder's Day banquet/luau I'm organizing (Thurs), Wednesday I have to drive to Chicago O'Hare airport to pick up my 12yr old sister, Friday is some sort of party my hubby and I have to go to because he qualified for a contest and that's where he'll win prizes and see if he wins the "big one", Sunday is a dog show that I'm taking my sister to. So... today and Saturday are the only two days I had left to craft but I'm just going to wait until next week and take my time on my "finishing touches".

I really should try crafting wearing a patch - hey my partner could make me an awesome crafting patch!

If we're ever partners in any future swaps I'm going to make you a patch collection!! These are my thoughts so far:

I would start out like I was making a set of pasties but with a soft silky fabric that would be touching your skin
"Quilted" patch
sequins patch (lots of them in different colors)
ribbon patch
glitter patch (would have to "seal" the glitter so it didn't come off all over your face)
button patch (covered in buttons for one, one big black button for a Coraline patch)
"Origami" patch (lots of them, a swan, a tshirt, anything else I learn to do glued onto the patch) This would be 3D
Resin patches (would have to make a curved mold, then the decorating possibilities are endless) I'm picturing you wearing a candy sprinkles patch

Of course, if the "base" is made of a pastie then I would definitely have to make 1 boobie tassel patch!!

On her wist she had the cutest piggy bank covered in rainbow balinese filigree. I'd never done that before with clay and it did not turn out the way I wanted so I painted it a coppery bronze. I absolutely love it and plan on making more. I'm so glad it's on her mantle, I have a picture of it on my mantle before I sent it. I think it looks so much better in person. I actually impressed myself.

The first thing I do in the morning is put a mug of water in the microwave for my tea, let the dog out, than make my tea. It's gotta be hot! I really enjoy coffee but sometimes I just forget that it exists.

But my absolute favorite? Well that would have to be McDonald's Sweet Tea!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to join this but my little sister (12) is coming to stay with me for the month of May and my mom might not approve of me making pasties while I'm supposed to be spending quality time with the sis.

And Dreambelle, that's hilarious because until yesterday, I was sure you were my stalker!


Hmm.. maybe I'm trying to throw you off by saying I think you're MY stalker....

Hotty_Blonde~ Those are some really good clues!

Of course my stalker could be one of the many that doesn't keep track of this thread, but here's my tally so far:

23 crossed off because of comments/posts
Top 2 guesses because of comments/posts:
1. gamemom42
2. millik

55 people left on my list of potential stalkers! Grin

More clues for my stalkee :

1. You are older than I am
2. You joined this swap later than I did
3. Our first names start with the same alphabet (though I doubt this will help at all Roll Eyes)

#3 actually helps a lot if your name is your blog name.

Stalkee: Your child/children is/are very beautiful and he/she/they made me want to tell you the first time I saw his/her/their picture(s).

That was very complicated for me to type out without being specific.  Grin
