Like booglass' debating and knitting board, what are you going to be crafting tonight (after you vote, of course), as you watch the election results coming in?  Hopefully it won't be as long of night as it was during the last presidential election!

I am going to be making goodies for the vintage swap as well as making beaded and felt pins.

Good topic! I'm working on a gigantic, overly complicated purse. Sewing is good because I'll be pinning it together in the tv room and then I can take it to my sewing machine in the bedroom whenever I need a break from the pundits. I'll also be drinking many beers. We'll see how that works out with the sewing. Smiley

I will be working on bottle cap pins.  I should clean my room, but I'd rather make something.  Too many tests recently have made me feel very uncreative!!

I NEED to be finishing up the speaker lightboxes from Readymade tonight, but instead Im going to goof off and work on my houndstooth scarf. ACK! Those light boxes are supposed to hang in a show this sat, and Ive only got as far as gutting 1 speaker. Ive got a LOT of work to do.

I really think I need to do something!  I'm sitting at work, compusively checking the early exit poll results. 

I may try to reconstruct my purse I fudged up last night.  Or, maybe I'll do some knitting, since that always calms me.

I'm going to be knitting purses (eyelash yarn style - I'll try to eventually post pics).  They're done in simple garter stitch so hopefully the monotony will calm me...

I'll be setting up at Art vs. Craft this weekend so I've been:
gluing pinbacks onto pin fronts
gluing earing posts onto earing fronts
and cutting up CDs

All the while the tv's been on mute (a better way to enjoy the coverage ;-) and I've been playing non-politically biased music.  I waited in line for about an hour to vote today, and I've been getting at least 8 or 10 political calls a day.  Never move to a swing state, but enjoy your crafty distractions!
