That's the nice thing about this swap.  I finished Wendie's package last round before the sign ups were closed, which was a good things since she lives on the Moon and my package took forever to get to her Grin

Hehe, well you live on Mars and you should have built a better a spaceship so it had reached me earlier!  Grin
Haha, if you had sent it with a rocket, I would have received before the Sign ups even started!  Grin  Grin

Yesterday was my last day at school, so now my Summer holiday has official started!! YES!!  Cheesy Time for some rest and some good, old stalking!!  Smiley

I would love to find me a tree filled with paper cranes! And then find out that there are messages on them!  Shocked Amazing!!

Yes, I like to believe that the paper cranes are like the Prayer Flags! So you will release 100 good intentions into the world! Isn't that awesome!!

You rock!  Smiley
I'll keep an eye out and vote for you!!  Cheesy

Thanks, petskin, suereal and artsycandice for sharing your stories!

I am so lucky to have so many people around me that love my creativity and my partner totally gets it! My two boys are so excited about Craftster too and wanted to swap along in the last IYP with suereal! They are so proud and showing what they received! I think it starts there!  Smiley , being proud of the handmade item you received!

Creativity is a gift, it really feels like that! My personal text signature has that quote there since I first got a member here:
Creativity is a gift! Wrap it up and give it away!  Smiley

Thanks all! I love coming here, feel at ease and willing to share, comment and show whatever I made with you. I appreciate the comments I get and you pick me up when I need it  Kiss

oh, artsycandice, I recognize what you said! I was 16 when I learned how to sew but didn't feel like telling everyone. Most teens didn't think it was cool to sew  Huh
But I come from a creative family, my mother sewed, knitted, crocheted, she handspun and was just so crafty (she died when I was 9, so she could probably do more, but I can't ask her)That built my confidence and when I was about 18 I didn't care about anyone else anymore! If you don't like it, it is YOUR problem! Not mine  Grin

Nowadays, I am asked to make something for my family, friends or collegues! Most of them don't know how to craft (at all!!) and think it is great that I can do so!

I am in a crocheted African flowers- stage (right, AIMR?) and made so many but didn't know what to do with it. I took a 20 with me to work and started a swap of my own. They can take one if they leave something instead. Just trying to get everyone around me get crafty  Smiley

Artsycandice, I am in awe with the stuff you made and posted here! Don't let anyone tell you otherwise! It is awesome and it is great to have you in our lovely crafty community!  Kiss

I am a proud crafter and Craftster!  Cheesy

Hahaha, AIMR, LOL about the backside of the Chinese menu, haha! Thanks for that!  Cheesy

Oh if it wasn't for Craftster I would have never started to crochet and yes you keep me stretching and trying so many new things! I love it!
Swapping is so much fun! I love crafting for another Craftster! My collegues asked me several times if I wasn't sad to send it away, but I never feel that way! I want to send something I am proud of and I know I will recieve something handmade specially for me too! win-win situation if you ask me!  Smiley

I agree with all of you, swapping is so fun, exciting and I especially love IYP!  Cheesy

No problem to be your guinea pig, AIMR!  Grin

And Sue, see that is what I meant! You like the other one to go where she/he never would have gone if it wasn't for swapping!  Smiley

See, I worry that people will say "yes" because they feel like they have to but will be secretly disappointed that's it's me they're getting stuff from.  I know I'm not the best most detail-oriented crafter, and I just figure they'll think they could have done so much better... 

When I buy something in the store, like a dress or a shirt, I never go and have a look if there are any mistakes. I just look if it hasn't big errors and if it fits.
So why when we sew/crochet/knit/clay/felt or whatever ourselves, we keep looking for the mistakes we made?!
When I get something made by one of you lovely Craftsters, I never look for the mistakes that might be made... I have received stuff in swaps that was a new craft to that Craftster and yes when you look closely you could see that. I am just so happy that you took the time and tried to make me something and that you were brave enough to try something new!  Smiley
So, like Jemimah said, why wouldn't the other one feel the same way?!

So maybe when you made something you can try and remember that store-bought isn't better than what you made! And if you think it is, go and take a look in the store!   Cheesy
Or you say it inhere and we will all tell you that is wonderful and well made!

Handmade is better, that was made with love!  Cheesy

And Susi, I'm glad I already added you to my collection   Grin

How come I didn't think of taking notes in a *cute* notebook! Has to be cute of course  Smiley
Thanks for that idea, AIMR! Will have to make/swap/somehow get me a fun, lovely notebook to admire/stalk the heck out of you awesome Craftsters! Ha!  Cool

Susi, you always make my words sounds so weird! Haha! But oh yes, you are very good at making peeps feel fun and wonderful! (no, that is not what you said, but it is true!)  Grin

I am thinking about what to make! I like the following and planning stage a lot, so I'll take it easy!

ooh, this swap didn't already start?  Roll Eyes
