Holy crafting emergency. I thought I knew exactly what I was doing, I thought it was coming along extra well. I finished. And it's the wierdest looking...thing that I've ever made. And my partner is too awesome to get a piece of crap. So I might be sending late...I've got to rectify this situation!
I will absolutely not be joining the next round of this swap. How horrendous to tear up a card that someone spent their time and emotional energy on. A card that contained a secret so pungent that they could only release it anonymously. I am really offended by that, more so than the card. And to then say "I am not sorry"...well, why even tell us all? So you can make yourself look better than the sender of that card is my guess. Yes, next time be more careful in filling out your swap questionnaire.
I have never been ANGRY looking at Craftster before. This is a new low for me.
Paperbag, thank you for the effort you put into making this work, and card-makers thank you for sharing. I'm done with this thread completely.
Hm. I don't tend to get into the back-and-forth on Craftster, but I feel compelled to say just one tiny thing. I get where people are coming from in thinking that some comments on craftster may be less genuine and therefore unnecessary, but I'd like to remind everyone who feels this way what it feels like to be on the other side of those comments. I, for example, am NOT an artist. I barely qualify as even creative, but I do love to create and I try very hard to make things of the best quality *at least for my level of experience and skill*. In very rare instances, I have seen my own handiwork and been elated at the final outcome...these few-and-far-betweeners do find themselves on craftster...where, inevitably some nice craftster will offer a few kind words or praise. THIS inspires me to make something better, to try even harder, and to ask questions and learn more.
Heh Listen, I'll do some snooping and find out where everyone lives if I somehow miss this 20 person round. I mean I probably wouldn't do anything to you but whine--but still...it would be obnoxious. Deathly obnoxious...
On loving your long gone ex: I also have had a decade long love. We don't speak anymore because we are toxic dumps to each other. A few years ago we were both engaged and broke up the weddings for one another. And I still think of him every day and hope he'll decide to break the mutual no-speaking agreement.
