CraftADDchick - your pop-tab purse is packed and ready to go to the post office when it opens back up on Tuesday - I am finishing 'mine' up today and expect the carpal tunnel effect to go away in about a week - don't know how long I will have the uber-calluses on the thumb and forefinger tho Smiley 

Ouch! Sorry you're injured! But, I appreciate the sacrifice in the name of crafting Wink I mentioned the bag to my sister, and she seems very interested, so I may have to start collecting tabs after all Tongue But, she definitely is not getting mine Cheesy

Oooh! I like the removable covers idea on the bag. Nice styling on it too! And the quant has such vibrant colors- too bad my hair is too short to wear one (it would look silly!).

I will be having a MAJOR push to get everything finished tomorrow. I did a bunch of the prep work last night. I was missing one of the items I needed, so I had to make an emergency run to the fabric store. So now, I have to go and make cupcakes for the party I'm heading to in about 2 hours...

Ooooh! I can't wait to see it! I gave mine away in the FOCR Swap (Round 1), so I'll need to make myself one!

I also need to work on my newest version. I just have to wait until I have a bit more free time. I'd like to get it made before Christmas, but it may have to wait until my Christmas vacation. I have a backlog of things to make (and I keep signing up for swaps, which doesn't help).

There are some things in the gallery that I somehow missed! Love the Day of the Dead set, and the potholder with the map (I think) fabric was also fab! I also like the recipe holder clipboard- I have a bunch of recipes that are on 8.5 X 11 paper, and that would be a good way to hold them.

Everything I've seen so far has been great!

And, I think I have all of the recipes (there were some added the other day that I came across when I was checking something), and I've got them all "formatted" (I didn't get very fussy with it- there were some things it would have taken too much effort to change, especially since Word usually has a mind of its own, and changes things at random). So, all I need to do is put things in sections (appetizers, soups & salads, vegetables, etc.), which could be tricky. I'll have to make a judgement call on some items...

Well, I hope it isn't a letdown! Wink I just tried something out that wasn't terribly difficult, but I combined 2 techniques and I wasn't sure if I did them in the right order...



Don't be so down on yourself! Isn't crafting all about trial and error and figuring crap out? Everything you make just builds experience for something else down the road...

Thanks for the words of wisdom! Ordinarily, I'm all about trial and error!. But, since it's for a swap, if there's too much error, it's a bad thing Wink

But, now that it's pretty much done, I really do think they might come out pretty awesome (but I don't want to get cocky, now...) Wink

Well, for better or worse Wink I did it! I did the dreaded final step! And, I don't think it came out like I had intended, but if the preliminary result is the final result, it may actually be better...

So, I have to wait 24 hours before I'll know... But, I think it's all good!

See... I told you worrying works  Grin

Cute dishcloth! And, I like the colors of your kitchen Wink

I'll be mailing mine out on Tuesday, if all goes well...

I'm about 1/4 of the way through with compiling all of the recipes. I've got them all in one document, and I'm working on formatting them all. Then, I just need to put them into categories and it'll be done! Unless I decide to make an index...
