Ooo! Normally I'm not so into clothes for pets, but I really like that jacket! And if one's going to dress one's bet, why not in a stylish faux fur collar? Real fur would be unsettling (and perhaps chewed).
I just realized that I have the perfect display piece in which to collect some tiny houses! Something I picked up at the Goodwill bins to refinish and it's just been collecting dust for a couple of years. Whee!
I have both sympathy and empathy for your financial situation and wish you the best. Your giving spirit certainly deserves some coming back to you. Looking at all your lovely gifts it just looks like you're creative and generous with your time, not broke.
As a self-employed provider of a luxury service, I have both less money and less time and need to keep any swapping to the "one tiny-thru-medium/small item" category for now if I'm going to play. I think that I could pretty easily do the time of a medium craft, while keeping it wee and inexpensive.
All that said I'll be away from the last week of February thru the middle of March.
As organizer, annacharlotte IS queen of her swap. Long live the queen!
