7351  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Sunhat Swap CLOSED (send by May 1, 2007) on: April 25, 2007 06:01:10 PM
Ooooh! As the recipient of said hat, I am happy to wait! I shocked my kids by taking them outside today (paper airplane tests) and tomorrow we're going out to hunt slime molds (yes, you read that correctly!). Fortunately, it was cloudy so I didn't really need a sunhat. I guarantee that the hat will get plenty of use right away!  Cheesy Cheesy

And, yarnhag, I hear you on the cold and the need for naps. I had one recently and was exhausted for 2 weeks. So, hopefully you can kick it in the butt soon! Take care!
7352  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: "___" In A Box Swap Round 3 Gallery on: April 24, 2007 06:25:25 AM
I am loving these boxes, so far!

The box from the pirate box is fantastic, and the goodies inside are great (love the parrot!). And the pirate missive is neat- I would have burned it completely on my first 3 attempts, so I am impressed with your results!

The scarf in a box is such a great idea, especially now that the warmer weather (here, anyway) is upon us. Nothing like a scarf and some hair doo-dads to keep those wisps of hair in place while outside enjoying the spring breezes (and occasional gales)!

And, while, I'm not a beach going person usually, I love the summer-in-a-box. I relly like the sun on the top of the box. And, that beach bag is fabulous! What nice summery colors you chose!

Now, I really can't wait for my box...only 4-10 days to go! Wink

Wow! First of all, I'm a bit jealous of your awesome living accomodations! Growing up on the coast, the idea of a houseboat-type thing has always fascinated me.

I think your organization techniques are superb for the space that you have. Everything in reach, yet tucked out of the way.

And, here's hoping that you get a desiganted space when the renovations are completed! Think of all of the cool things you could sew to decorate your abode! Plus, you need to make some way cool clothing appropriate for entertaining. I'll be checking out your blog to see how things are progressing Wink

ETA: Okay, I just read through your blog and I'm a bit less jealous Wink - What a load of hard work (and the bit about your first attempt at a crossing was heartbreaking) you've dealt with so far! Fortunately, you don't have to go it alone, which is so much nicer! Here's hoping the obstacles become smaller as the project progresses!

I overheard a couple of kids in homeroom (I teach 7th grade) talking about ATHF, and I logged onto Craftster to show them Master Shake! I also showed them the Meatwad hat that someone made somewhere on Craftster, and they liked that, too! They were pretty impressed that I knew what it was, and think I should make a Master Shake for my desk.
7355  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: "___" In A Box Swap Round 3 Sign-ups 3/16 - 3/31, Send outs 4/22 on: April 23, 2007 04:31:57 PM
I sent too! My postage was $36! It's because I stuck in a couple of boxes of freezer paper for Phizzychick, and not because I crafted too many things! Now, I just have to patiently wait 5-10 days for it to arrive...it's a good thing I don't bite my nails or there'd be nothing left!

I enjoyed my theme so much- I hope you love it even half as much as I do, Phizzychick!

Oooh! I ike your bag! Mary Poppins was one of my favorite movies as a kid, and this is one of my favorite scenes (along with the one where they sing "I Love to Laugh").

Nicely done!
7357  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: pond friends swap? on: April 22, 2007 09:43:42 AM
Oooooh! Darn! Just when I was going to swear off swaps for a bit!

Okay, I'll do this, but I have to give myself a rule: everything I make must come from my bountiful stash! And sorry starfish13, I don't have a caddisfly larva in my stash (which is too bad, because I've seen the jewelry made from them, and I totally want one!!) Wink

Actually, the timing for this one is great! I am in a few swaps right now (okay, 5), but I''ve already sent on one, am sending on another tomorrow, and should be sending on a third (and possibly a fourth) by next Monday. So, my swap duties should be relatively light! Plus, school is starting to wind down, so late may into June is perfect!
7358  CROCHET / Crochetalongs / Re: Fat Bottom Bag CAL... anyone? on: April 22, 2007 07:52:54 AM
steen- One reason that I haven't attempted this bag is because I didn't like the handles at all. The other reason is because I wasn't sure my crochet skills could tackle it. But, I love your modification and my crochet skills are improving, so I may be attempting this in the near future. And I love your lining fabric!

the modification steen did is really easy! I did a very similar one shortly after the book first came out because I didnt have circular handles: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=85662.0

Oooh! Very nice! Now I definitely want to make one without the circular handles! Now, to find the time...
7359  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Re: Charity Blitzing 2007 - Anyone Interested? on: April 22, 2007 07:48:56 AM
I've received a donation for the Habitat auction, and got word that another bundle of goodies will be on its way. My own creation is still in the trunk of my car waiting to be transformed. I need to do some sanding and painting, but with rain for most of my vacation, I couldn't go outside to do it. It'll be done by next weekend.

mlcrays- That hat looks very comfortable! I like the color combo too.

Nice job MoonLightBliss33!
