7601  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Handmade Rubber Stamps (sign ups Dec 5-Dec 27, Sendouts Jan18) on: January 17, 2008 06:10:09 PM
Well, mine are packed and ready, come what may...

Hopefully the weather cooperates. Due to snow and ice tonight and tomorrow morning, we could have a 2-hour delay tomorrow, which would mean my day would start at 11:00 and my lunch time is scheduled at 11:05...and then I'll have 1 1/2 classes to teach...tough Friday Wink

But it would give me time to hit the PO in the morning!

Sarcastra- Another awesome stamp!

I stamped mine last night to check for spots I need to fix, and they came out better than I thought (for me anyway). I'm going to clean them up right now and then package them up for shipping. So, off I go!

I plan to send out tomorrow morning on my way to work. Weather could be an issue, however. I do have a Dr.'s appt. in the afternoon (3:45), and should be able to make the PO- the last time I was there they were waaaay backed up. But the PO is open until 6 pm. Could be close, though. If I don't make it, it'll be first thing on Saturday morning, between 9 and 10 am. I'll send PMs if I don't make it on Friday...but then also I'll send PMs if I do!

Well if you want its only like 10 min. away from my house. I can check it out and let you know what they have this weekend Cheesy

Ooooh! And can you get me some zippers while you're there? Wink

Now that would be a dangerous thing for me to live that close...I'm jealous and yet thankful all at the same time. My wallet would be totally empty all of the time. Wink

In my classroom, as a science teacher I didn't really have a bunch of books on hand for the DEAR period, so I spent tons of money buying books. And, since I bought them I wanted to read them first so I've become a bit of a YA fiction addict. Especially series books...I think Sharon Creech is the YA version of Barbara Kingsolver- I get the same feeling of happiness whenever I finish their books! I love the language that is used in many YA books...it really can be beautiful!

And, I'm working through Inkheart which is okay so far...except the author uses and overuses the phrase "as if." Several times on a page. Not an exact quote but close enough: "He hung his head as if hoping that it was all a nightmare that he would soon wake up from." She needs to commit to something- enough with the "as ifs" already. Most of her sentences would work fine without it..."He hung his head, hoping that it was all a nightmare that he would soon wake up from." ** Right? It's driving me crazy...and I almost want to go back to the beginning and count exactly how many times she does it...but at halfway through the book, it isn't worth it. But trust me, it is a lot! Now, because it was translated from German, it could be the translators fault, but I don't think so...

**But I don't think she ended her sentence with a preposition Wink

Okay, now that Ive finished the carving for the most part and there is no turning back, and no time for do-overs, I can look at the gallery. And, I just have to say that I am impressed and amazed!

Sarcastra, that bunny that you sent to balkandina is amazing! How do you manage to get such fine lines? I am in awe

And, sowingdiva, those ballet slippers are fantastic (as are the rest of them!). Wonderful detail!

[/b]Ms Marple[/b] the stained glass window is superb and I love the motion you achieved in the bird.

And nowI dont want to send mine*sigh*remember I did say I was a beginner

So:

<< Off topic >>
Let me just put out into the ether for everyone, not just this swap: if anyone doesn't like something I've sent them, go ahead and trade it off for something you do like.  You don't need to tell me and I won't get my feelings too hurt even if I do know about it.
<< back on topic >>

Same here.

Wow! I'm not a whiskey drinker, but this just sounds too yummy to ignore! I might have to locate a bundt pan and give this a go. Thanks for sharing it!

Wow! I love the look of the different tags and shapes! And, I like the look of the all silver, too. Makes some of the shapes very interesting looking. I'll have to use the cool sections of the cans for some pieces, and the plain side of the can for other pieces. You just doubled my options!

I use a cucumber and green tea scented one from Dove, and I'd love it if I could find that scent in a natural product!

I absolutely LOVE Osgoods! I can't go there very often though...I spend waaaay too much money! They do have awesome prices on zippers and I want to go and get some...but I know I can't walk in there and just get zippers Wink
