I picked up what I needed to make the pouch for my Hipster PDA. I'll be making it either tonight or tomorrow. I have to get up early on Monday to put out the trash (we can't put it out the night before anymore), so I'll be hitting the PO bright and early, it seems!

Today is all crafts, all day! I should also be doing a bit of homework for a class, but I can do that tomorrow. I'm heading to the PO on Monday for 2 other swaps, and hopefully this will make it in the mail as well!

Ha! I think mine have plenty of room...large expanse of cotton to work with...

And, I guess I really need to drop some pounds- I went to a concert last night and went to buy a shirt. I wanted the women's shirt (cool purple color) and it was the fitted style. I asked for an XL, and the woman gave me a flick of a glance as if to say, "Not going to fit!" and I said, "It'll fit soon!" and she chuckled and said, "It'd fit now, it'd just be tight!" I guess I should have been insulted, but it was actually kind of funny! So, when I get back to work in a couple of weeks (and won't be sitting at home snacking), I'll start.

Your underwear are definitely not granny panties or big at all! I'm glad that you wear normal underwear...after I signed up for this swap I was thinking "crap, what if my partner wears thongsHuh? I will have no space for work!" So this just means that your underwear will be all the most fabulous.

And whatever to losing a few pounds. Sometimes I truly loathe how weight-conscious our culture is (I know I know, this spiel again...). When I look in the mirror I realize that, yes, I could stand to lose some weight. And, yes, I don't look like I did when I was 15. But the truth is I think I look just fine the way I am and I don't see the point in being obsessive about what I eat just so I can fit into my jeans from high school (although, admittedly, I do see the point in being in good physical shape...but even when I was in the best shape of my life I was never even close to a size 4). Grrr, it just drives me crazy.

/end rant

Apologies for not checking in much. The past few weeks have been the most stressful I've had in a few years and it's kind of sucked. But things will hopefully calm down by next week and I can have my life back, haha. And I am most definitely looking forward to this weekend when I shall do nothing but watch Star Trek and craft. Excellent.


Thanks for minimizing my butt size! Wink As for my need to lose weight, I didn't start putting on pounds until I hit 30- I don't want to get back down to college weight, but I really should, for health reasons, drop about 40 pounds... Once I get my back issues straightened out, I can start exercising. It's frustrating right now because the weather is perfect for walking, and I can't walk too well! I've never been on a diet and refuse to try the latest miracle "remedy." I know exercise will help quite a bit. I don't eat a ton- just not the best foods and not much burning off of that food...

Anyway, back to undies talk!! I have my test undies almost ready to go (slight delay in my oh-so-optimistic plans) and should be able to do step 2 on Monday. I can't wait!!  I have the "theme" going for the undies, I just have to finalize a couple of details... I really hope my test undies work out okay, because I have no idea what I'll do otherwise!!

I sent a PM last night to my group to say I'd be late. I've been home about an hour or so. I fully plan on sending tomorrow. I'll have to make myself stop and head to the PO, I just know it... My original plan was that the fabrics would be part of the "embellishment," so I'm trying not to add too much stuff... I'm trying anyway Wink

I just picked up material to make a pouch for my Hipster PDA. I'll make the pouch this weekend and pack it up for a Monday mailing. Yay!

Totally cute! And I don't think the second one is disturbing looking at all!

And, I am closer and closer to finishing. I'm learning a bunch as I go! I had to re-learn how to blanket stitch, for starters...

ooooh linen -  has anyone else seen the holiday crafts book that is in the grocery store check out lines?  You know the small digest sized magazines that are usually food and whatnot? There is an absolutely adorable mummy stuffed doll in there - and I am thinking it might have been made with linen but I am probably very wrong on that..... sooo cute though!  I NEED to make one!!!

Flipping to do list keeps growing.. and growing... and growing.......


Only about 2 1/2 weeks until 9/2 guys!!!!
(uh. that would be the send out date Wink)

I'm finishing up other swaps this week, and then next week I'll be plugging away at this one. Where does the time go? Crafting for this will be the ideal go-in-and-set-up-my-classroom avoidance task... Wink

I just ruined the pants and shirt I'm wearing at the moment for this swap,
Hence my commitment Wink

Hah! But, with Taz as your partner, I think you won't regret it! She's awesome!

You smooth talker Wink  Your partner is a luciky girl herself Smiley

And I can assure everyone that my pants are WAY big enough to take any kind of design.  I...have a big butt and I cannot lie LOL

Thanks, Taz!

And now, I have the big butt song stuck in my head...

Fantastic tree! Man, I so didn't think outside the box for this. But, I'm almost finished! So, I'll be sending tomorrow morning. Yay!
