OMG so cute!  I absolutely need to make a bunch of these for christmas.  One for my husband, and one each for his brothers.  It is AWESOME!  I've never stuck pipe cleaners in my stuffies.  Such a new and interesting idea!  Thanks for sharing!

You got a wonderful package!  You did a great job on that painting, Kaotic!  And its so cool that its a clock, too!  I've always wondered about clock making.  Is it easy to do?

I'm not completely sure about my sizes now that I have been looking through more of the swaps.  Some of the items that are considered medium for some are small for me, time wise and I classified it as so.  I also don't really classify my crafts by size from the amount, because I just have so many supplies saved up at home.  Miss Barbara's large item didn't cost me much to make but took a lot of time.  I think I ultimately spent 7+hrs on it across multiple days (stopping when my fingers hurt too much to continue). 

Some of the things that are listed as a large (necklace, earrings, bracelet set for example) really really really doesn't feel "large" to me because jewellery is one of my strong suits. Whereas on the other hand, I CAN knit, but it probably takes me about 4 times as long as anyone else so something that I would feel is definitely "large" by time standards, doesn't really feel "large" by any of the other standards! I guess it's really to each their own.
That is EXACTLY how I feel, Teamama. 

I'm not too bad with the first time swap anxiety though.  I love all the stuff I made for Miss Barbara, and I know she is gonna love it all, too.  I did a good job stalker her and we talked a lot.  ^_^

Ooo, a pirate swap would be fun!  I will keep my eye out for this one, if I have time!

I am absolutely terrible at waiting!

Me too!  I'm terrible at waiting, and waiting for people to get stuff.  I have such a hard time keeping secrets.  I'm terrible come Christmas time.  My husband generally know everything he is getting because I just can't keep secrets!

I can't wait for your package to get there!  The suspense is killing me!  Get there fast, package!  God speed!

Here is the package all boxed up and ready to be sent out.  I mailed it on Friday.  Super excited for Miss Barbara to get it!  YAY YAY!

My package to Miss Barbara is officially sent off!  Dropped it off at the post office at lunch and it should be there in 7-10 days!  Now its time to wait!  *nervous!*

I just finished a project this morning for my wonderful partner Miss Barbara and sent my husband pictures of the finished project.  His response is too precious to not share.  I'm surprised he liked it so much.  ^_^

"Wow Jill, I am jealous of your swap partner.  I want your art in my home only!  That looks really really amazing."

He constantly is seeing stuff I make leave the house, ie for other people's birthdays since this is my first swap.  Hardly anything I make stays with us.

Example: A painting I did for my sister for her birthday based off a painting I found on etsy.  (its tree related! and maybe it will give others some inspiration, it was easy to make)



And if anyone wants tips or the picture process I took of it as I was making it, let me know!  Its only my third painting I've done, and it was super easy to do!

pinkmichk, thanks for all the helpful shipping advice!  That was great!

I never thought I would say this, but:  THANKS FOR THE TEASERS, JILLYBEANS!  Cheesy I was having a difficult day at that point.

I bought myself a sewing machine on Sunday, and I was taught how to use it just a few hours ago.  Jillybeans is going to be the proud owner of my cheesy, newbie-sewer, first project!  Lucky her!  Grin

BTW...I think Jillybeans and I are like two halves of the same crafting brain!  Cheesy

I'm sorry you were having a difficult day and I'm glad that my teasers helped brighten your day.  My husband kept bugging me saying that I should post teasers.  He's so funny.  I think he is really into this, too.  He has been helping me tons with ideas.  Love him.

Oh yay for first time sewing project!  I am so excited to get it!  Yay yay!  First are the best!  My sewing machine in a hand-me-down from my grandma.  It is a super old baby lock companion, but so far is a champ.  I believe my mom made all my bridesmaids dresses on it.  (if I only had her sewing talent)  I should name it.  Perhaps the lockness sewing machine, "Nessie" for short?  ^_^

We are indeed, Miss Barbara.  Two halves of a crazy over-crafting brain.  So many crafts, so little time!!!
