What is that saying???  "People plan, G-d laughs."Huh?  That is certainly what happened to me yesterday.  After my saying that since we all had the day off I would have my girls help me with the yarn/ribbon selections....well...the day was going well, then hubby and I went to Walmart and came home and took a nap.  When he woke up, he had a really bad fever and was feeling terrible.  We ended up going to the ER, where they said they are not sure, but they think he has bronchitis or pnemunoia.  Sooo...needless to say, I am exhausted, and we never got to the yarn/ribbon choice.  Someday..... Tongue Shocked

 Smiley  Hi!  My name is Barbara and I live in Long Island, New York.  I am a wife to a great husband and a mom to three teriffic kids!  I also am a preschool teacher for 'at-risk' students.

*I am unable to take and post photos so if I am chosen, please make sure to take photos of what you send me so you can post once the package is sent.  Thanks!*

THEMES I LIKE:  ladybugs, frogs, turtles, fairies (no Disney, please), cupcakes, dragonflies, Dia de los Muertes, ice cream, tattoos (no skulls, please), owls

COLORS & COLOR COMBOS I LIKE:  Orange, turquoise, pink/tan/creme, turquoise/choc. brown, mint green/choc. brown

~keyring w/mini purse attached to hold my license (for when I don't want to bring my pocketbook)
~messenger bag
~thread catcher
~fancy pincushion (one made on top of a jar would be awesome)
~lavender filled sachets (I have migraines, and my neurologist said this might help.)
~sleep mask

~cowl/infinity scarf (not tight around neck, one that hangs down over bosoms, would be fine if it looped more than once)
~pom-poms in every color of the rainbow including brown, black, grey, white (I want to use them to teach my preschoolers colors, and in some movement activities)

~origami stars
~paper cranes

~bowtie necklace
~moustache necklace
(Please keep in mind that I am a larger woman, lengths of items need to be made a bit bigger for me, and I like necklaces to be long.  Thanks!)
~Tree of Life
~any type of pendant

~Any type of item that is crafted that I can use to teach my preschoolers colors/shapes/letters/numbers

~hand-dyed yarn
~homespun yarn
~resin supplies (esp. small molds)
~yarn (acrylic is fine by me, and I love varigated yarn)
~sugar free candy (please PM me for type)
~crochet magazines
~scrabble tiles
~jump rings

It's my birthday on Jan. 31, so any birthday themed item(s) would be great too!  I make a big deal out of my birthday every year! Cheesy

I don't have a wist, but I do have a FOC profile, a wishlist on the January 2011 birthday swap, and I love PMing!  Feel free to PM me if you have ANY questions!  Thank you so much for considering me!

*We have slight allergies in our house.  I can receive crafts from people who have pets, as long as the pet was kept away from the craft & supplies.  Please do not pick me if you smoke.  Thanks!*

sunspotted, you sound like you would be a fun person to hang out with!  Grin

I received a lovely scarf from my partner in the scarf swap on Monday, that EXACTLY matches the stones in the TOL that I received in this swap. Kiss

Ok, here's a joke totally not related to pocketbooks, but it made me giggle, so here goes:

QUESTION:  How do you catch a dust bunny?
ANSWER:  With a dust carrot!  Grin
(I was watching Sesame St. with my girls and that was a Bert and Ernie joke!)

Anyhoo...on a crafting related note...I am keeping all my coupons for the local craft stores updated so when we get partners I can RUN out and shop! (Economically, that is!  Wink)

I am sorry for all the troubles you are having there with the flooding.  Unfortunately, where I live, we have no need for reverse rain dances.  As a matter of fact, my students and I were partaking in the "snow blizzard dance" yesterday in school, and it worked!  Wink  As a result of said blizzard, everyone in the family is home, and I will be putting together the yarn for the three partners today with my girls.  YEA!  Now, it's just being able to make it to the post office!  That will be another story.... Shocked

Ok, first it's the impatience at waiting for partners.  Then it's the impatience of receiving your package.  Then it's the impatience of waiting for your partner to get her package!  I am hoping she really likes it and I'm excited to see what her reaction is to it!

BTW, I was showing my scarf all around work yesterday, showing it off!

For all of you who didn't get a snow day today, I apologize in advance...but...

As I was sleeping late in bed because both my school and my girls' schools called LAST NIGHT TO CANCEL  Grin, I was laying there thinking of the other things I could make for my partner for this swap!  And perhaps a little something  for her daughter, who sounds like a sweetie!

Dharma_rebel, I was hoping you would say that!  Cheesy  But I tried it on and asked for son's opinion (17yo), and he was like..."uhhhh...yeah, it's okay..."  Tongue

Yeah, we all got phone calls tonight (except hubby), saying that school was closed for tomorrow.  I just finished one crafted item for my partner.  It was my first time making it and what the pattern said to do wasn't coming out looking right, so I adapted it.  I hope she likes it.  I don't think I will be going anywhere tomorrow, so I expect I will get some more crafting done.
