I made a lot of progress, but did nothing this weekend one of the smalls has to be done right before I send and with this weekend off (the final one before send outs) I plan to get everything done.  But I enjoy doing the work under pressure and feel like my best work gets done that way.

I also received from ironic!  I hid the package from myself - out of sight out of mind.

A: Would probably stand there in shock for a while and try to process what happened.  I would probably save it all, exciting I know.

I have some good progress going, I am going away this weekend so I am going to try to get one of the larges out of the way this week and I am more than 50% done with another item.  So excited to see everything coming together!

A: Any peanut butter/chocolate combo

I finished an item last night that I am so proud of!  I have always wanted to __________ and it came out great!  Now it's time to start knocking things off the list.

Where has the time gone?

My family is pretty good about gifts and my inlaws are great too.  So I usually get pretty good gifts.

One strange gift I received for Christmas was from a guy I had just dated a few times.  We went on our second date the week before Christmas and then I was flying home for the holiday.  This guy bought me a giant teddy bear and sprayed it down with his cologne.  He made a big production of giving it to me and telling me I could take it back home with me and sleep with it to remind me of him while I was gone.  All I could think of was how creepy this was on a second date.  It hadn't even occurred to me to buy him a Christmas present.  Before this date all we had done was meet and have drinks.  I barely knew him.  I wasn't even sure if I wanted to go out on another date (and this decided that I most certainly did NOT!).  And he though I was going to lug around this giant bear, reeking of cologne, through the airport, half way across the country, so I could sleep with it at my parents house and think of him for the whole 5 days I was going to be gone?  Really?  Really?  So it might have been sweet if we had been dating for awhile (even then it would have been kinda weird but might have come off as more sweet than creepy).  Or maybe if I were 15 yr old girl it might have seemed romantic.  But we were in our mid-late twenties so it just screamed stalker to me. 

AH that is wicked creepy especially for a first date.  That would be sweet, I guess, if you had been dating for a while but I would have just taken a sweatshirt or something (that's what I do atleast).  Sorry I couldn't help commenting.

A:  One of the first gifts that my boyfriend ever gave me a pink striped polo shirt from AE.  My main gripe was I don't like wearing stripes (for no particular reason) and it just wasn't my style in general.  He quickly learned the err in his ways and buys much better gifts now.  Let's just say he went on Craftster to stalk me basically and bought me a a whole bunch of sewing stuff because my mom bought be a sewing machine for Christmas.

I am chugging away.  Bought supplies for one of the days and working on another.  Pretty sure I am going to scrap what I am making because it is turning out pretty small.  All-in-all I am making good progress.
