Monica, I swear if you listed everything you've been through in the past two years alone no would would believe it.  They would think it was some tragic work of fiction, and yet you just keep on going with that big old virtual smile on your face and your great sense of humor intact.  You are amazing.

The photos below were taken after day 3 of the snow starting to melt off so it was deeper but we are getting a 4/6 more tonight and looks like the weekend storm will go to sea Cheesy

I just keep on keeping on and do my thing. I have to say this was about the worst thing.. I am so excited that our school ( not all in our district but ours will open tomorrow) I think they are doing it to get some of the kids in the cold in to a warm and fun environment. I am so sad for so many here to be so cold. We did have a quick warm up and freezes in the night so that is OK.   I wanted to cry that the only yarn store here I know of that is year round the roof came down on them. I have it easy. I live on a military base and because of what we have hidden on the base, and what our sides mission is they had to get us up and online quickly. It is a blessing. We have gas to cook with so really we hang blankets and can somewhat warm that way. For me it was not the cold but the depth of the snow and my trees in my yard my beautiful trees all gone. the one snapped in half and OMG fell right next to Alana's bedroom if the house sat the other way it would have been in her bedroom. My big pine came roots and all and crashed over my neighbors drive and the stupid ( OK not stupid but you will understand) plow trucks on the base thought it was a good idea to keep plowing and plowing all that yuck over the tree and not only did we have to cut up the tree and help the neighbor do his drive as he just had surgery but damn the weight of it. WOW.. I could not let the kids play much in it as it was so deep and Houston would sink LOL.. poor boo.. My dogs were not happy at all but it is what it is..  it is melting off good so that is great.. Unlike a hurricane you can take your food outside and put in the snow, and make snow cream ( Oh and we did Cheesy nom nom nom... It is back breaking work for sure.

One of the trees down in my front yard..

It was so deep ( I had to shovel out the front of the house and took forever but you can see how deep it was behind me.

My fence i 5 foot in the back.. Houston was just hahah running. He would not put his snow suit on ( was only in it for about 3 min) and he was so excited...I feared him falling through and Ralphie too and I would have to rescue them but no it was so heavy and packed LOL... they had fun!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


IMPORTANT:  All updates will be made here and this will help you to keep up with everything also, please bookmark the discussion and the gallery threads!

                             How This Swap Works:
Please READ CAREFULLY! This swap works differently than most!


~~Try to imagine a chain.  The first link is the first person whose wish list is on page 1 (Person A) - that will be the craftster member who was the very last wish list from Ongoing Wish Swap 90

~~Now, we want to put another link in the chain.  People will read that list and see if there is something they want to/can make from the list.

~~Someone (Person B) will claim Person A for some item on their wish list.  They post a reply to the thread that says I claim Person A for [item].  This is my X claim (however many times they have picked someone for example, "this is my fourth wish, with one sent, and three received, (meaning that this is the fourth claim they've made, one is in transit to it's destination, and three of the items have been received by the people they previously claimed).  Also add your location, and any preferences or aversions I live in Wisconsin USA, I am a vegetarian, and I am allergic to wool.

IT'S REALLY IMPORTANT THAT YOU REPLY WITH YOUR STATUS WHEN YOU CLAIM SOMEONE!  This means you need to post who you are claiming and for what, how many claims you have made, including how many in transit and how many received, and your location/preferences/aversions. I.E. 4/1/1 = 4 claims-1 in transit-1 received by partner

Then comes the fun part!  After the introduction, Person B is the last link in the chain, and they post their wish list!!!  YOU CAN HAVE AS MANY ITEMS ON YOUR WISH LIST AS YOU WANT, HOWEVER YOU MUST HAVE A MINIMUM OF FIFTEEN MED PER SECTION i.e. CRAFTS and SUPPLIES.  THE MORE ITEMS YOU LIST, THE BETTER YOUR CHANCES OF BEING CLAIMED QUICKLY.

(Please have your list ready before making a claim, this swap moves very quickly!If not I will skip you and or remove your claim!!  Please include your country at the start of your wish list). Person B will also PM Person A to get her address so they can mail the item when it is finished.  

Along comes Person C, who claims Person B for something on their list and the chain is built, link by link.  (If Person C wanted to make Person B a purse AND a stuffie, that would still count as ONE WISH.)  Then they post their list, and so on.

When you want to make a claim, you can ONLY pick from the very last wish list in the chain.  You can't pick anyone else in the chain - you can only connect to the very end of the chain, which is that last wish list posted.


After you have made your claim, you need to PM that person for their address with in 24 hours!! It is up to you to make sure you do this DO NOT PM THE ORG FOR THIS INFO! You must get and keep safe until you ship!

Friends of Craftster are allowed UP TO 3 wishes at one time as per the orgs discretion, others are allowed 2 wishes again as per the org dis..  If this is your first swap, you are only allowed one wish at a time until your crafts are received for this month.  
Do not choose over your given limit. If a  stall in the thread the orgs can claim again to get this moving again !

***Do not claim someone unless you can fulfill that wish to a high caliber***


~~You must send Del. Comf with in the USA. NO exceptions within the USA!
~~If sending overseas as it takes so long we are changing the rule for INTERNATIONAL packages ONLY as soon as you ship AND SEND A PHOTO COPY /PIC of the shipping receipt ( or the tracking number from the receipt) you can claim again ONLY AFTER I HAVE THIS RECEIPT HOWEVER!!! You can send it to me in a message OR if cant get in that way you can EMAIL IT TO : CPYSGIRL@YAHOO.COM

 
Sending/Communicating/Feedback:
YOU HAVE TWO WEEKS (14 days from the time you claim)TO GET YOUR ITEM OUT THE DOOR.This starts from the time you claim not the next day must be out the door BY the 14th day! 7 days late and Neg feedback could be left for you unitl partner receives~
IF YOU DO NOT SEND A MEDIUM ITEM YOU CLAIMED FOR YOU WILL BE GETTING TEMP NEGATIVE FEEDBACK ( things happen so if you have to change items that is OK just let it be known!! ) until you do send the proper package
( the medium can be a couple small items etc as long as it adds up to a medium and that is what you claimed for we know things happen and some have to be changed but must be OK by the person claimed and on their list or wished in their Pinterest/wist )

Feedback will be given as soon as you have sent - received -posted pics but will be up to 2 weeks after the swap closed if you do not post pics and this will be noted and you might not get allowed back in the next round if you cant do this! Please take pics before you ship! This is a rule not an option!!!

    
Previous Swap Rounds:
If you are confused in any way by how this works, please look at some previous rounds:

Photos are a requirement for this swap!


 
You must have your wish list saved in your computer before you make any claims as to not stall the thread Smiley
