4031  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: STS 36 **Discussion Thread** on: March 02, 2010 01:18:27 PM
I'd nudge someone myself but you guys are mostly the people I talk to on a regular basis so yeah... Roll Eyes What did I ever do before I joined the STS? I can't remember now lol.

Update: The day of the dead projects are a bust  Undecided Of the 3 canvases I was working on only one turned out any good; the others just kept getting worse as I worked on them (anyone have that happen to them? where a project isn't quite going as planned but you keep going forward until you realize its just crap). Oh well. The one that turned out well was one I was planning to keep for myself  Grin Now I just need to restart one of them to give to my dad for his birthday which isn't until May... Roll Eyes

So I guess after I finish my hw for the day, I'll get back onto that, and maybe start another small project for my shop...I'm thinking maybe a sale in my shop this month. I'm at 0 points and things I wanna buy!  Cheesy

Anyway, back to your regularly scheduled programs.

Well I am trying to craft for myself more but I usually make two of the thing I'm working on and stick the extra one in my shop   Wink - that and the fact that I was focusing most of my attention of the IYP swaps which I'm officially done with!! I'm sad but excited at the same time - I always feel a little bit of withdrawal with big swaps where I put in so much energy and time and then when its over I feel like "now what do I do?" Oh yeah, craft more for me hehe.

I have a question: Does anyone else browse the shops when they're bored? Even if they don't have points to spend. LOL I find that I do that a lot when I'm restless and bored. Does that make me weird haha. Or more weird at that rate.

I love the fabrics you use ZS! Baby Z is going to be so uniquely stylish  Cheesy

I ran some errands this morning and stopped by Michael's to pick up some paint I didn't realize I was out of. I gave myself permission to buy maybe one or two impulse buys because I just got my tax return back (I love tax time only for that reason) but much to my surprise I was too logical to allow myself to buy anything else. I already have a ton of stuff at home that needs to be used up so thus I only ended up buying a tube of paint for a $1.19. I am a little proud of myself and more so just mystified haha.

*sigh* Today I am planning on doing more homework =/ I'm really not motivated right now though. I think I'm going to get a shower and if I'm still not in the mood after that I'll work on my craft project for a bit before jumping into school stuff.

Also unfortunately it seems that we might have our little ant friends back again. I'm not sure. Chris said that he found 5 of them in the kitchen last night *big sigh* I hope its just a random freak accident that they got there but I doubt it. Cleaning will also be in my near future as well.

I was holding off on sending out A2K's package because I'm waiting on something in the mail for her but I think its going to be late so I'll be sending out tomorrow  Cheesy I'll send the surprise mail package separate when I receive it.

*sigh* I am beat. I just finished an off-and-on 6 hour drawing marathon to get a giant drawing class assignment out of the way. What a way to start off my spring break. I feel tons better having done it though. I have a bunch of homework still but that sucker would have been weighing me down the whole week if I didn't get it done early.

I am about 65% done on my dotd art of which one will be put into my shop. It'll probably make its way in next day or two.

Mmm, I think its time for dinner now. Yes. Dinner  Cheesy

Congrats Lapoli!! Everyone's having babies now I swear. I too will refrain from tasting the craftster water; that is one project I'm not ready to get started on.

I have two swaps due this week and I'm worried about getting them done on time.  Ah life.  When it intrudes, it intrudes in a large way.  Cheesy

Aww don't worry about me! I'm going to love whatever you send. I hope to send out your package for the IYP soon so you can have something to entertain yourself with!  Cheesy

If I had it my way I'd never take off my pajamas. Most comfortable outfit EVER!

I even used to go grocery shopping and such in my pjs and slippers. It embarrassed the heck out of my mom but it made me crack up to see her try to walk away from me as to not be associated with her pajama-clad daughter.
