4511  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Post Secret Swap Round 2! on: December 02, 2007 07:25:12 PM
Okay, so I must confess I have a life outside of craftster (some birthday celebrations, and a monster amount of school work), and low and behold after being away from this thread for 2 days it got so big (ie almost 30 pages bigger) that it took me 2 full days to catch up.  Thus said I won't be able to comment on them all (I wish I could but that would mean my final papers would literally never get written), but I owuld like to comment on a few.

First of all to the person who was brave enought to post their own picture.  Wow, I wish I was as brave as you are, and you are beautiful, remember to see yourself through his eyes sometimes.  Thank you for reminding all of us how beauty isn't just in the eye of the beholder, but also in the beholded.  

I am also often very self concious of eating in front of other people (it was so bad in highschool and the begining of university that I often didn't eat).  What can I say ignore the other people food is too good to waste it worrying about them.

As for not wanting to work will fellow grads, let's just say given some of the people I know graduated and now work for nuclear plants, not only would I not want to work with them, but I wouldn't want to live in the fall out zone either.

I also wish I could have been a hippie... or maybe I am a bit of a modern one...

I also feel really childish when I don't order alcohol.  Sometimes it's just best to really enjoy you're milkshake instead (you know you'll enjoy it more).

For the secret sender who was raped, my heart goes out to you, and I know it's impossible to say anything that can make your situation better.  Find a sexual assult centre or a hospital that offers free counciling it will help.  And remember silence means NO.  

Steps for getting excited about salad: 1 travel to hamilton Ontario, 2 go to the Bean Bar to eat, 3 Order a salad (I say one of each to try them), 4 be very excited (you will never look at salad the same way again), 5 send me a doggy bag cause I am really excited about their salads

I also knit so i don't feel guilty about watching TV (or watching video game play for that matter, or sitting in class oops I'm not supposted to admit to that).

I definetly look at people's grocerie choices.

My voice (and sometimes deminer) also changes around my parents.  I wish I could say it would stop but my mom also does the same thing.

The zit popping one could have been mine... (I spend a lot of quality time in front of the mirror for this purpose).

I'm always concerned by closed shower curtains (I often check).

My sister is definetly addicted to diet coke, so don't worry you're not alone.

I am also terrified my ET.  I still remember watching it in school one time and beign so relieved when we were allowed to play if we didn't want to watch the ending.

Spaceballs is wonderful... I still want a mog.

About dreaming of biking across the US--go for it, friends of mine biked across Canada this summer and had the time of their lives (only took between 2 and 3 months).  

TO the secret sender who wants to drop out of grad school but it's paid for, I understand only sadly I'm paying to do something without meaning.  

About thanking teachers, so true.  I emailed it to my mom (a teacher) i hope you don't mind.

As for hoping to be as good a mom... i often feel the same way.  Just remember to share your secret with your mom (if possible) i'm sure it woudl make her year.

I also have a long distance best friend, and she was always popular making me worry.  I understand, I don't have a lto of advice, but hang in there, one day you may be the only one still around for her.

I agree about wanting there to be attention for lesser cancers.  They are all jsut as devastating, but it seems like the media can only latch on to one at a time... too bad people's body don't cooperate and get "uncool" cancers.  

As for all the secrets about not knowing what/ to do/ who you are/ or how to change the world--i think we need to form a support group...

okay that was a lot, and i'm really sorry for talking to much about myself it doesn't sound bad to relate to secrets until you pile forty plus of them together and then it just seems self absorbed... so i apologise... i didn't mean to co-opt the secrets

I received these a few days ago, but didn't get a chance to post yet.
Thanks to everyone for sharing their secrets with me.

"I don't think people will take me seriously because I wear mismatched socks.  I don't know if I can take myself seriously."

As someone else who wears mismatched socks, and once had a boss say it would mean no one would take her seriously, I can honestly say I understand.   I can also say that one's brain matters far more than one's socks in these matters, unless of course you are wearing very serious socks.


"I've cried more in the 2.5 years I've been with him than in the previous 17 years combined".

Oh honey how I want to hug you.  All I can say is some times tears and good and sometimes they are not, and only you know which kind he brings out.  And if they are the bad ones all I can say is get away from him, because no one has the right to make you feel that way.


"When I am home alone, I open up my show closet and stare at all my shoes.  Sometimes I put on a shoe fashion show for myself with my highest heels!"

Sorry about the bad photo, I'll try for a better one in daylight.
I loved this one, it actually sounds like fun, so secret sender don't be ashamed, enjoy you're moment in the spotlight, even if it's only you watching.


"Sometimes I just want to escape"

I understand completely.  Be strong, be brave, and remember there are only somethings you can escape from.  And if you want to escape things you can, by all means hop on a plane and get away.   
4513  CANADA / Ontario / Re: Help from fellow hamiltonians? on: December 01, 2007 02:32:22 PM
there aren't a lot of options that I foudn while I lived there.  There's a small yarn store in ancaster as well as on Ottawa St (near the fabric land).  They are both kind of expensive though.  Other than that it's zellers (most of them have an okay selection), Walmart, or Micheals.

Good luck.

Very cute.  You did a great job.  Owly (who did the other costumed dolls) has posted a tutorial on how to do hair, if you're interested.  Your's looks great I'm just not sure if her tutorial might help you in the future as you mentioned it was difficult.

Great job on the doll, I love the hood and the hidden pony tail.

Those are so cute.  Great job.

You did a great job.  He looks so cute, and very "life-like".

You did an incredable job, it's absolutely gorgeous.  YOu may have already answered this, but is it made out of fleece, and is it stuffed, or supported in some other way?
Thanks.

text front: I'd be kinda sad if no one talked about my secret in the gallery
text back: I know it's not that important, but i noticed that some secrets in round 1 were ignored. I hope mine aren't!

I understand completely, I really worry about my secrets being "appreciated", but at the same time i know when I have to play catch up (I have about 8 to read at once) it's hard to comment on them.  Even when I'm touched/can relate to the point of balling my eyes out in front of my computer.  And just for the record numerous cards so far have brought me to that state...  Cry
I find I can really relate to a lot of the secrets, but sometimes I'm just not sure what to say, and it's really hard to hug anonymous people through the internet.

for the person who wants to waitress, I highly reccomend against it.  3 months of smelling/feeling like a soggy french fry were enough for me!

haha I was thinking the samething, but i can understand the appeal, I say to the secret sender try a church dinner (or any other low key charity event), it's a one time chance to waitress, and they are very forgiving of mistakes.

I think it looks great (although quite frankly I spend more time looking at posts than the layout  Wink).
And since there's no way to say it enough a big huge thank you (and some hugs cause we're all family here... right)) to Leah, Sweets4ever, and all the moderators.  What can I say craftster is the best thing that ever happened to hte internet.

I got two awesome cards today (well actually one came yeasterday).

Card 1  --I love the picture

"I've always wanted to try waitressing"

and Card 2--It's hard to see but it includes a great drawing

"I have been tagged as the artist in my family.  When my brother asks me to draw something for him, I refuse because I think he is a really good folk artist and I like his drawings.  (He drew that!)"

Thanks for sharing your secrets.
