41  Craft Swaps / ACTIVE SWAPS WHERE SIGN-UP PERIOD HAS CLOSED / Re: Mini 12 Days of Christmas 2015 (sign up 7-26-17 to 8-10-15; s/o 11-23-15) on: November 17, 2015 11:05:16 AM
I went to the PO on Friday and discovered that it was going to cost $70 to ship my package!  Shocked Shocked Shocked  Needless to say,  I spent the weekend reassessing, crafting, and rewrapping.  I was able to reduce the weight of the package by just over half and I'm feeling much better about shipping now, even tho I'm bummed that I can't afford to send some of the things I wanted to.  Lesson learned, that's for sure!

I hear you! I did the same, I had wanted to send extras, edible extras, but when I weighed everything it was exactly at the upper limit of the weight class and extras would have pushed up the price a lot. It is also worth checking if it is cheaper to send two smaller packages than one large. That is the case for me, postal rules are just strange..

for everyone who is looking at eye-popping shipping, check out this thread, it is for international shipping, but has some good tips for keeping costs down even if you are shipping domestically  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=404190.0

our shipping rates from Ireland suck, the UK is literally an hour away by plane and yet it costs the same to ship to there as australia..

I will be sending out this week, I just need to get a larger mailer!

44  Craft Swaps / ACTIVE SWAPS WHERE SIGN-UP PERIOD HAS CLOSED / Re: Christmas Stocking Swap Round 11 (Signup thru Oct. 20; send out Dec. 4) on: November 15, 2015 03:59:21 AM
I could cry!! I had set aside last weekend to craft and buggered my back, this weekend was definitely going to be set aside to craft, but I came home on Friday to a letter from the tax man telling me I am getting an audit..one my only rental property (which I never intended to rent, but economic collapse meant I had no choice) As if I didn't pay enough income tax -40% to horrify all you from the US...so I spent all day yesterday chasing recipts, bank statements ...and I am not a good organiser..

anyway, it is as done as it can be for this weekend, so come hell or high water, I am making Rolers stocking today...I have a few small items that I purchased and made, but I really need to get cracking on this..despite the fact that all my task lighting in my craft room has died....

the gods are against me, truly.

favourite christmas song.. oh so many

Fairytale of new york, with the pogues and kirsty mc coll, has to be way up there, but I love all the traditional ones too..

and of course this.
45  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: another round of Fabric printing swap? on: November 15, 2015 03:53:23 AM

A very economical way to make screens is to buy canvas frames.

That is a really good idea! I did actually buy some screen printing mesh years ago, but my organisational abilities are pretty crap and I haven't a baldy notion where it is.

but I should really get on to it, I have a ton of wood left over from building a sunroom (as in SO and I literally built it) so I do have plenty of wood. I could knock up a few, nice and substantial frames. I just need to set my mind to it.

Yesterday, I worked on what was supposed to be a Big Time project. I was helping a friend make a new cover for her husband's chair. We used the original cover as the pattern and, after working on it from about 10:30 am until about 6:00 pm, we tried to put the cover on. It didn't fit. Sad Sad Sad 


sometimes though these things don't go over the shape of the chair, you can try opening a side seam, putting it on and sewing the seam shut, in situ...if that doesn't work, open both side seams(or other relevant seam) and add a strip of fabric
