Just got back from Joanns...thanks for letting me know about the coupons...I always make sure I am traveling to a crafting store with a coupon...no sense spending full price unless I have to! Got everything I needed (for now). I am broke, but happy!
Ok. I am breaking down and spending the little bit of money I have saved for the rest of the summer and purchasing the supplies I need for this swap. It's driving me crazy that I don't have what I need to continue. Oy. I have no willpower.
On an annoying note, I think I crafted half a large item with one of the wrong colors, which is what I used to justify my going to Joanns today...going to see if they have a better color match.
That's a great idea, to make an outline/timeline of what you would need to finish during what time in order to be done for sendouts. I think I may do that too!
I've been moving right along with this swap. Lots of the items I want to make for this swap need to be painted, so on Monday me and my girls had a "painting day" and I got a lot of it out of the way, except for one small thing. I'm working on a large right now, and have a lot of ideas brewing on what to make my partner and her family.
I wish I had more money...some of my ideas require more supplies...I hate being broke!
