Also sorry I haven't been here much, not for lack of activity. I have to be in quite a patient mood to get pictures off my phone, and I haven't been lately.  :/

But!  Anana has been back to the auction, toured a concrete pipe-manufacturing plant, participated in walk at lunch at work day, gone to the dentist (the frog is back!), and shopped a little bit at a bead show (it was a bit of a let-down, but he did get a few bits we hope to make into something!).

LOVE the no swearing sign!

Sorry to hear about the problems, Wildfyre, and hope Willow comes back!  It's amazing how attached you get to your former LVs... it's so nice seeing Apti, Tom and Mel, and Willow in other pictures!

Welcome to the swap, rscowtown, Muahahahaha, and quaggy!

Still miserable and rainy here, another day of thunderstorms, no garden work for me!  Still more time to plot and plan... I've found several things I really, really, really want to make... if my partner doesn't want something like those, well, I guess I'll just have to do some me crafting, too!  Then again, my original ideas rarely make it to the official crafting stage, because something else comes along and... oh look, a squirrel!  Wink

Uh oh.  Getting all swapped up here...   Shocked

If you need more sign-up time to clear a swap I would totally do that for you!  Smiley

Welcome Ludi and Zenersy to the swap!

It's been nothing but steady rain here, I wish it were sunny so I could work on my yard, but I guess that means more crafting and planning time!  Cheesy

That is an amazing pinboard, rackycoo!  I wish there was a "repin all" feature!

Ooooh, kittykill, nice plug!  I was going to pick someone to partner that wanted peg people (those peg clowns on rackycoo's board are cool) but now maybe I need to do embroidery...

Okay, since I'm going to be gone all tomorrow and Sunday is looking iffy, I've posted the swap!

Let me know if you need more sign-up or crafting time, I just tossed that out there to match the other one I have.  Smiley

I will get the Q up and the swap started this weekend, I promise!  In the mean time, you can start thinking about what you're going to fill out on your questionnaire.  It'll be the standard questions about what you would like, what you can make, favorite and least favorite colors and patterns... but then I want at *least* three things about both the main circus shows and the sideshows that you like - and maybe a sentence or two of why.  Also if there's anything you would really not want.  So start thinking about that, and get ready to fill out and send in your Q's this weekend.

Also a good time to start a pinboard if you want - and feel free to share it here so we can all get ideas, too!

Maybe a Medium or two Smalls?  That way if someone wants to make just one thing they can, or they can make two things (Main Attraction and Sideshow) if they prefer...

Or whatever!   Smiley

I like this.  Because a Medium isn't too taxing - I really find it hard to do much of anything that falls under a two-hour time, anyway, but that's probably because I tend to do things like crochet - even small things take forever.

How about circus or sideshow?  Let everyone put what they like about both in their questionnaire then partner chooses.

Yes, this could work... I'm imagining the write-up now...

Step right up, step right up!  Welcome to the Craftster Circus Extraordinaire!  Straight ahead you'll see the main tent, with all the acrobats and [um, research circuses and see what else].  To your left, the games of skill and chance!  To your right, the sideshow... if you dare.

...or, you know, something.  Smiley

I could certainly go for smaller (though, really, Ludi and Artsycandice, I don't think I've *ever* seen either of you make what would technically even be a medium!) I was thinking for some reason that it would be a main attraction item *and* a sideshow item, just based on the name. Could keep that theme and just do two smalls, though.
