I received two claims from craftaddiction on Saturday. A pair of cozy socks and molded crayons.



These fit my feet very well, which means they will fit my roommate's feet even better! Of course I had to try them on. I should be a sock model, yeah?


And all the crayons! Not one container, but two! Just brimming with cute shapes


I might keep this little elephant..



Thanks again, craftaddiction!!

I claim TwistedTruth for handmade gift tags and washcloths for sister

4/2/2

Hello! Im Laura from Pennsylvania. I graduated college in May and am currently thinking ahead to the holiday season where Ill just start paying back student loans and be flat broke! Uh-oh! Im so glad this swap exists! I currently dont have a job, but I hope to soon be employed as an English teacher or at least a substitute teacher!

I live in the countryside with my family and our dog, garden, and farm animals. We have a large plot of property that we hike and hunt on, as well as keep a huge garden. Ive always told myself that the winter after I graduate college I will make sure that I get each and every one of my family members a proper gift from me. So thats what I aim to do this year. Thanks for the claim!

15 miles in 2 days really does a doozy on your legs, so I guess that means I'll just have to sit around all day... and craft! My supplies came in from Etsy so I'll be ready to ship on time or early this week!
