1  Craft Swaps / ACTIVE SWAPS WHERE SIGN-UP PERIOD HAS CLOSED / Re: Under the Sea (SU June 15 -25; SO August 7,2014). Message on page 14 please read on: July 20, 2014 08:22:37 PM
I managed to get a bit of crafting done during the art day camps I was teaching last week.  teaching skills related to my project allowed me to demonstrate using my swap.....clever thinking eh?  Heck, there wasn't even time for me to eat the lunch I brought.....I'd wind up eating it in the car on the way home at the end of the day each day.  Next week is my last week of teaching day camps for the summer......it can't be over soon enough!

I'll certainly be right up to the deadline, but I knew it would be like that.

Alittlemusthave - you are very kind, but don't sell yourself short....you do very nice work!

Today was supposed to be my all-day-crafting-day.WAS.  This entire week has been a disaster.  Monday was errand day (meet the builder at the new house, go to the lighting store, drop off some crates to a friend, pick out granite, get a brake controller added to the truck) but nothing went right and I was only able to get ONE thing done off that list and had to try to get the other ones done on Tuesday (my renovating at the old house day).   Wendesday was supposed to be renovating the old house day #2, but I had to meet with the builder again about a mess of a situation with the windows, go back to the lighting place and deliver some paperwork.  So, here it is Thursday and I don't have much of anything done on the old house this week (I've been staying up until midnight to get as much done as I can after getting home in the evenings) and I'm running out of time (it has to go on the market at the end of the month and I have half-installed floor, no trim and two rooms that haven't even been started that need a LOT of work).  Tomorrow I have to work and I teach day camps all day during the week for the next 2 weeks.

I want to cry now. 

My swap item will get done and I'll make sure it's done well, but it certainly won't be sent out early.

I will post photos of the gardens when they're finally, in, but we'll have our hands full until then.  We still have the interiors of the barn and shop, all the fencing and a bunch of major projects that are necessary to complete before we can begin.  Still, I can hardly wait!!

Until then, here's the old garden..
My husband's version.  He thought it was sufficient, but it was ugly and there was no gate to get in.  He is tall enough to step over the fence.I was not:


He was gone for a weekend and I did this (with no help.in the rain).  This is what it looked like when I first finished.  The flower gardens have filled out and matured so it looks much nicer now.  We were also having a dry spell then..we certainly are not this year (this year it's more like we're living in the tropics!).  The fence posts still need to be trimmed yet:

Aww, thanks Artsycandice!   

I've been in classes full-time for the last seven years and so craft swaps have been off the table for a while.  We're still busy with building a new house and renovating the old house to put it on the market, but I desperately need an excuse to do something crafty that isn't house related.   I thought I'd go ahead and give it a try.

So many ideas, but many of them aren't entirely in line with my partner's wish list so I have some more thinking to do, however I like having tons of ideas.if nothing else, I can use them for future projects!   I did start clearing a path to my art materials (we're renovating a house and everything in the downstairs closet and living room are stuffed into my studio until I can get walls painted and floors in).  This weekend should get me to a point where most of that stuff can come out of the room.

I hope I made it in on time!  Just sent my questionnaire.  It's been a long time since I've done a swap because school got in the way. 

Of course renovating a house and building a new house won't help matters much, but I'll be able to manage with the 6 week schedule.I'll need the time (the main reason I'm able to do this).

Oh my..I totally forgot about sea turtles!!

I love checking out your blog MissingWillow and it makes me miss my goats.  Our hectic lifestyle just doesn't make time for dairy goat upkeep any more, but we still have our ponies and chickens. 

We're in the process of building on a 30 acre plot.  It's going to be a lot of work to get gardens established (with all the deer TALL fences will be necessary) and the property fenced.  However, it's GREAT work when it's all your own.
