What Fairy tale do you plan on doing? ( this will be kept secret)

one question: the fairy tale will be chosen by the crafter or by the recipient?

I think I would prefer to choose the fairy tale that will be crafted for me, and craft the fairy tale my partner chooses...  that way we'll be sure we're crafting for a tale our partner likes.  Would that be all right?

I am going to be a little awkward here. I quite like the idea of chosing which fairy tale I write. I just think it would be hard to write something that someone else has chosen esp if it is a tale that might not be well known. Plus I like the idea of being surprised with the take that is being rewritten for me.

I would like to be part of this swap too. I've sent my information to the organizer.  I think that I'd like to have a fairy tale picked for me by my partner.  Part of the fun of this swap could be the mystery of not knowing which story you're going to get.

Hi everybody I wanted to note that I a hoping hopinh hoping that nobody sends in late. I am in a swap where a few people swapped late and it got kind of "snippy" in the gallery. And if you have to be late just communicate that's all. except I am so excited to start. I am already thinking of my lil' story. - Briana

Scatter, I am sending things now. I want to apoligize to everyone for being two days late. First my computer crashed ( we are going to nuke and pave my dh says- Sounds scary to me!) then craftster went down and it's running slow for me on this computer. I am very anal so this was a stressing time. But alls well that ends well. - Briana

I just wanted to put a question out there...
Is everyone re-writing a fairly tale?  I want to make sure that I'm going along with the general flow of things.

Ok well that was my general idea. Now I'm not talking about a masterieice here folks. Just something for fun! But if you have a masterpiece go for it.  * winks* hee hee. Mine might be a little silly but it's all in good fun right folks? I don't think mine wil be very long... Just do what you feel comfortable with . How about that? It could even be a poem, limerick, comic etc. - Briana

I must admit, I had the grandest plans for this swap.  I think I set my expectations way way too high this time and I'm struggling now. 

I'll be sending a few days late so that I can have one more weekend to dedicate to this swap.  I hate sending out stuff that I'm not happy with.

School's been super hectic this week and it's demanding much of my attention.

I am just about finished. I struggled with this one too but like Scatter Kincaid I think it was more my expectations of what I could do in the time I have was too high.

Will send out on time and will PM as soon as it is away.

swaps are a whole lot harder than i thought that they would be...
making stuff for yourself is one thing, but then crafting for someone you dont know and making it GOOD ENOUGH is hard! (this is my first. i'm a little silly like that.) i'm sending my package today, too. eeeee!

I will be sending my package out tomorrow, however, I'm sending it from my college's mail room and there's a chance it won't actually be sent to the real mail center until Friday.  It will be there sometime tomorrow afternoon, as I have classes all morning.

I received my package from crafty_karen1 today and it completely made up for my three hour ordeal yet to come tonight (otherwise known as class).  Everything is gorgeous and a friend at my dorm's mail center was insanely jealous of it.  I've been dancing around for a while now.   Grin

I'd love to post pictures, after I find a friend with a camera.  Do we have a gallery yet?
